I have bad news. The Palcomix web site that hosts the web comic that was the inspiration for Swiss Mix, "School Days" by Krezz Karavan, got denial of service attacked by hackers. It completely shut down the Palcomix and TJA websites for the past several days. I heard today from a source that knows him very well, his artist colleague bbmbbf, that Krezz is so despondent over the matter that he has announced he is quitting.
I'm not sure I can or should continue my Swiss Mix story if his web comic ceases to exist. Swiss Mix is fan fiction based on Krezz's comic. It seems to me that it would be bad form to continue writing about his world and his characters if he wants to stop his comic. The town of Pouncefield and most of the school kids that Hans and his family meet and interact with in Pouncefield are Krezz's creations.
If Krezz does quit entirely, then maybe I will write a new, original story to post here, and see if I can include some of the requested guest characters in it. We will see. If I do, it would get posted on the inkbunny website.
At best, it will be a few more weeks before I try to write again. Still having issues with sick pets, and now one of my parents is very ill, and I need to travel to see them.
(Update 5/22 - See below. Krezz responded to his fan support and will not quit after all)
