Well, that's it. Page 6, "A Prophecy is Told", and way too many years later, page 291, "A Prophecy is Ended". If you expected something more, well then I'm sorry. I had all these high hopes and ambitions when I was a 13-year-old kid, but I didn't really have any sense of scope or scale. I'm sure we all know the feeling. Now that I'm older and wiser, I'm able to objectively look at TYH and say, "this has gone on long enough. I need to take stock of my life and do something different."
I mean, it's not like it was even popular, right? What good is plowing ahead for seven years - gadzooks, it HAS been that long, hasn't it - on something that nobody even likes? I used to like it myself. Now I'm not so sure.
So, this is how it ends. Not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a "good riddance". I made a big fuss about all this stuff I wanted to do with this final chapter and, really, it was just a lot of talk. There were a lot of plot threads left unsorted, and really, that wasn't good writing in the first place. You might as well pretend they were never there instead of hedging your bets on some miraculous epilogue that makes sense of everything. To all seven people still following this comic, sorry if you got caught up in my... enthusiasm, I suppose is the word.
And, really, there's not a lot left for me on Smack Jeeves, is there? The last worthwhile comic on here died five years ago. So I'll be taking my leave of it as well. This comment, and this comic, will be my final post on this site. Where will I go? What will I do? I haven't really decided yet. I might migrate to Tumblr and start writing something about boys' love and the wacky perils that entails. Whatever I do, I think I've had just about enough of video games, comics about video games and The Angsty Herd: The Angstening to last me a lifetime.
