Veronica: Hey everyone!

For those coming back to look at this chapter, you might be surprised by the HUGE change in, uhh, everything!

The basic gist is that Another Path, the previous chapter in this 59 slot, was an indulgent “what if” scenario that had no real place in the canon — it confused people over whether Another Shoulder happened the way it did and served better as a goofy side comic before we had a place to put them (now, it’s our member club, Bittersweet Club International.) So I wanted to get rid of it! I considered redrawing it or making a chapter inspired by it, but I also thought the Volume Two book we produced in 2012 had a SUPER VALUABLE BONUS CHAPTER in Mother’s Day. And that’s why it’s the new chapter 59!

ANYWAY LET’S ENJOY A FLASHBACK INTO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

tho the avoiding her friends and trying to find people to […]

yes!!!! i was one of the people who originally wasn’t a fan of the chibi-style change, but i think vero’s really worked out the kinks by this point and i looove how the style’s developed. the art in the last few chapters especially has been *chef kiss*
