Josh, I was wondering if you might push back the "End of Avalon" by two or three weeks. I know it's nice to have the end in sight, but I feel somehow that there should be more Avalon this year than there will be, because of your numerous absences(which were not your fault, I understand, which is why I was wondering if you'd be willing to push the end back a little bit to make up for the loss of strips). <P>Of course, it's your strip; I'd just hate to be deprived of all the Avalon that I can get this year, before it's end. <P>------------------

As I'm *positive* I've stated before, these delays are not cutting into storyline. It's not like I'm gonna chop three weeks off the end of the saga, and leave everybody hanging mid-way through AHS final exams. Do you realize how unfair that would be?!? :-)<P>Allow me to let you in on a little secret... I don't have enough plot to fill the entire third year. In fact... you know this current Halloween storyline? PURE FILLER. I am killing time. :-) Unless I come up with some kind of epiphany within the next 6 months relating to the long-term story arc, there will be a couple other filler storylines. And I'll *still* twist a few new threads, and tie everything up at the end.<P>That's not to say that Year Three is going to suck... there will be some of the biggest twists to date. There will be some new characters, and a few of the main characters are going to go 180 on us (I don't consider this stuff spoilage since everyone assumes such things anyway. ;-) ). And there will be the usual massive upheavals that go along with such changes.<P>But trust me... the missed comics so far during Year Three are *not* going to impact the story.<P>Also, portraying graduation in October is just plain dumb. ;-)<P>JOSH.<P><P>------------------

I figured the date on the strips was enough info to glean the whole "they may be late, but I'm not skipping days" thing.

I'm sorry, and I know this is going to twist this thread out of control, but when I read the thread title, I couldn't help thinking of "A Modest Proposal."

Actually, that's what I was going for, despite not going for any satirical value in this post. Thanks for catching that reference!<P>And thanks for the response Josh! I'd never seen any such things stated before, but now I have, and it puts my mind at ease! <P>------------------

Hmmm....<P>Well, given that we currently have an imbalanced female:male ratio, I'm suspecting that at least one new male character will be brought in as a love-interest. I'm frankly hoping that at least a few of the characters will be heading for college sans attachments at the end, though--Pheobe would be a good possiblity, as would Helene (yes, that would mean a break-up with Alan--he can have Nancy, who is more than up to the task of keeping him in line).
