I don't think you're being unreasonable to think she should have let a little word to tell us it'd take a while, but I do think you are for getting upset because she didn't.
QoW has been over for over a year. She said she'd re-post it with comments, and she did that for us readers to give us a gift. Perhaps she did it for herself, too, because ending something like that maybe requires some kind of mourning. I don't know, I'm only guessing. I've written many stories that I was actually sad to end, knowing that I'd really miss
the characters. Now, we're greedy little things, and we always want more, and I was just as disappointed as everyone else when she stopped posting comments. Keeping this in mind, though, maybe her own mourning of the story was done, and posting them became a hassle to her; not in the "oh no I have to post a comment *sighs and rolls her eyes in annoyance*" kind of way, but rather in a way where she doesn't need
it anymore. My mourning is done too. I loved the comments, I thought it was fun, and yes, I was worried about what might have happened to her, but it didn't keep me from sleeping.
She should have left a word, she didn't, and although it's a shame, there's nothing terrible about it. I've started a lot of stories I didn't finish, I've left readers hanging myself, I'd be a hypocrite to blame her for doing something I did myself.
I stopped checking the website because I figured it wouldn't be updated anymore. I doubt she will, despite her last post. She was probably pissed about all the emails when she posted it, there has to be a reason for a snotty post, I never pictured her a snob. She has a life beside being a webcomic writer. I wish her good, but QoW is over to me, and I'm waiting, although not checking everyday, for the next project.
Yes, people read and donated, bought stuff. And while people did that, she gave the merchandise, always updated, explained why she didn't when it happened, was a good seller. Now the webcomic is over, she doesn't sell anything anymore, and I'm pretty sure no one is donating anymore. She doesn't
owe anything to anyone.
I'm only coming back here to keep contact
