The Future of Colourful Skunks

Okay, so here's what's up.

Twincest is finished. The end and bonus page in it's entirety are uploaded and safe on the internet. So what's next?

As for a next chapter, sequel, or any other continuation names, I'm not doing one now, nor will I be for a long time, if ever.

When I first started this comic, I was all in for writing chapter after chapter, and even now I feel these two could have more story to tell. However, as I got closer to completion, my feelings changed. I want to write something completely my own, for one. Something with new characters, a different situation, etc. I have a lot of story ideas, and continuing Twincest would take all of my time and creative energy away from those. In addition, I feel that the story that's been told here in this revision is good on its own. It introduced us to two siblings, showed us their interaction, and left us to imagine what may or may not happen from here onward. I kind of like the feeling of "setting them free"; these two skunks have come to mean a lot to me, and seeing them degrade into nothing but a couple of horny teenagers, mating for our amusement and arousal, just makes me feel very sad. And I know that unless I planned it very, very carefully, that's all it would be. I don't have a grandiose story in mind, just more sex, and I need more than that if I were to continue these two on their life together.

However, Devon and Keri aren't going to disappear entirely. I love drawing them, and I simply refuse to not draw them again, ha ha. I plan on drawing still images of the two of them; going about their lives, maybe a non-canon sex scene, maybe some cameos in other comics I write, etc. I also am thinking of allowing people to commission me to draw their character with Devon or Keri (or both), but I feel a little strange about it. Kind of like... pimping out my own children or something. I dunno, I'm an artist, and I'm complicated #artsy

Lastly, I'm going to be doing little revisions to the comic, and offering a .zip file of the high quality and improved version for a small fee. The comic will still stay free online, but if you'd like to own this slightly nicer version and have it be super big for maximum Twincest viewing, then go for it! I don't have a price set yet, as I'm only just starting the revising process, but I'll have news about that soon enough. I hope to do these revisions over winter break, since the place I work closes for a few weeks. It may be up in January *crosses fingers*

I'd like to end this with an extremely from-the-bottom-of-my-heart thank you to everyone. If it wasn't for all of your interest in this comic, I may have left it as yet another unfinished task in a long list of procrastinated failures. The feedback, the outright criticism, the confessions of undying love for skunks, and everything in between. Writing for myself is okay, but writing to a living, breathing internet fanbase and watching everyone's reactions was... indescribable. I love it. This comic was started as a general thank you to the furry community for being fun, accepting and quirky, and ended as a sincerely felt gift, almost like a debt owed, for how amazing the furry fandom is.

Thank you everyone *teary eyes of happy time*

A good and respectable choice. Looking forward to seeing more from you in the future.

Sad to see this end and to hear there won't be a continuation.  I really enjoyed this story and was looking forward to where it would go in the future.  In any event, I can understand your needs and what you want to do.  Need to do things for yourself and such, and keep yourself happy, that's the most important thing.  

This was a fantastic little series, loved/hated waiting for each new part,and every time i'd see your name in my submission watches I'd get all a twitterpated to see what the next bit brought.   I'd like to congratulate you on a series well done, but the art speaks for itself, it's fantastic and all your followers prove it. ;)  Will be watching to see what next comes from you, and honestly hoping to see more of the pair in the future, when you get around to them again, if ever.

Thank you, it's always wonderful to hear these things. I'm glad to hear people came for the Twincest and stayed for the encore, you know? I'm excited to explore new ideas and stories from here forward.

What sort of original stories might you do?  More sibling incest?  Cubs?  Something else entirely?

If you ever want to flesh out ideas, I'm willing to help. :D

And thanks for an awesome comic. ^_^

Something else entirely! I have a rather "unique" subject to explore in a comic, and I'm looking forward to bringing that out. I will be doing cubs too though, heh.

I'm kind of glad you've decided to leave them where they are. You gave them a good ending for their story and one that gives them a good deal of hope for the future, whatever that might be. It leaves them with a fair amount of dignity, too, and keeps the emphasis on the romance between them over raw sex. So, if I may be so bold, I think you're making the right choice. It would be a shame to see the two of them turned into an endless river of cheap porn, and knowing when to end a story is as important as anything else.

I certainly understand the desire to work on other stories, and to develop your own characters and your own ideas. From what I've seen of your work, both in this comic and elsewhere, you've got a great imagination and I know that whatever projects you take on next will be just as much fun as this was.

I am glad to know they won't be vanishing, though. To be honest, I've become quite fond of the two of them, myself, and I'd love to see them again from time to time, in other moments of their lives.

Although I haven't been as heavily involved in the community as some (make no mistake- Furry is my life! I'm just a writer of relatively little consequence), I am nonetheless one of this community's "old-timers" or "greymuzzles" (been active for 28 years, as of this coming January), I can honestly say you are certainly welcome as a part of this community- Just participating is enough "giving back" to our community! ;)

*bows* Thank you very much. I'm glad to be a part of this great little gem of culture, and giving this comic as thanks is the least I can do. I only hope and plan to give more, too. Here's to my own 28 years, when I come into being a greymuzzle myself! *cheers*

Well, when you reach the age of 35, you're considered a greymuzzle. (I'm 47.) ;) it's just that I have spent 28 years in fury, 21 of that online, only been to two cons... I'm not a prolific writer, but that's my only skill. :) My only advice to you is enjoy yourself, create what you want to, and hope others appreciate what you put out. :) You've done just that. :)

I wish I could afford commissions or I'd commission you...

(Everything I've written is in my gallery, for what it's worth, and while I like sex, I don't like writing sex for the sake of sex, either! :) )

I remember seeing the original, puzzling over why it was left incomplete and devastated to learn that the artist had been discouraged by an ungrateful drumbeat of "MOAR MOAR MOAR FREE FREE FREE NAO NAO NAO" from the furry community at large. I was ecstatic to see someone give it a revamp, and though I could see your frustration at times, I'm glad the good outweighed the bad long enough to give you heart to see it to the end, and as I've said all along the way, you really did capture a new level of magic here, both with the story and the tenderness of expression. Sad to see it finish, but is probably much better that way, and always look forward to more of your masterwork!

Congrats on finishing up, it was a great read and it's nice to see this duo's story finally finished and refined from beginning to end. I'll keep an ear perked about that improved version for sure :)

You've done the community a great thing. You've shown us that not only can someone care more about the integrity of a long-term project and it's characters, but also that there are indeed people that want to see stories and art that don't just involve mindless sex.

I feel like Devon and Keri are my friends, now. Like I know them, care about them, and want them to be happy. I'm glad they're not just gonna' be humping each other needlessly against whatever surface we can imagine them against... Well, not yet anyway. XD We'll see what your cameos and future pieces are. ;3

Whatever may happen, I can't wait to see more of your work! After the holidays I'm planning on having a small reserve of funds set aside as well. I'm hoping you might open commissions again...

You've kinda' inspired me to actually FINISH something, for once...

If I inspire you to finish a project, I will be beyond proud of myself, lol. That would be awesome to inspire someone.

And yeah, I feel like these two are really close to me now. At times I was like "Yeah! I'm gonna write so many raunchy chapters and make oodles of donation money, mwa ha ha ha!" But as time went on, it felt almost blasphemous to use these two for business. Even doing non-canon commissions feels strange, heh. I'm still deciding how to handle that.

Thanks for being a good supporter and sticking with me. I will indeed be opening commissions, very shortly in fact. I'm excited to have my free time for drawing to be, well, free again, ha. No projects for a little while, just personal art and commissions!

I'm actually most excited about your personal art! Especially if you draw more of Rae. She was fun to watch you practice on! :D

I love to see the stuff that creative people come up with. Commissions and long-term projects are great, but I think I like the spontaneous sketches that people pull out of nowhere, a little more. I mean, I can't even say how shocked I was when you started doing random vodka boredom sketches of yourself... *Blush* ^^;

Anywho! I'll be sticking with you for quite a while. You're my favorite artist in the fandom at the moment...

... Wow... Yeah, come to think of it... It feels a little bit weird to admit that, for me...

Naylor, Meesh, Miu, Gunmouth... Eh', I'd rather commission from you. ^^;

Thank you for developing and sharing your work with us. ^_^ I'm looking forward to whatever else you come up with. And I'd gladly donate a bit when I have a bit to donate. X3 Thanks for the update.
