Great news dudes! I finally finished up the new prologue for The Selection! It's 6 pages technically, though 5 1/2 is a better number as one is a splash page. I finished it earlier this week and have just been waiting out telling people.

I'm not sure quite yet WHEN I'll be posting the new one. I had originally planned on posting it as soon as it was done but now I'm not sure. I think I might wait until September starts up to give me more time to build up the TS buffer before my next quarter. I really don't know. I plan on posting these pages closer together, maybe 3 pages for 2 weeks or 2 pages for 3 weeks? What do you guys think? I might make another poll about it.

This prologue has been a wild ride. It doesn't seem like much, but for those of you following me for a long time you'll know I tried redoing it several times over the years. I finally feel happy with this version!

With this in mind, I want to talk about the OLD prologue. While I don't hate the old prologue's art or story it's... it's just outdated. The process for The Selection in-canon is no longer what is shown and it's just a little... creepy? I've had people tell me how unnerving it was having a bunch of adults "grocery shop" for children and even have people accusing me of fetishizing older people x underage people which is honestly really stupid. You have to understand I wrote that prologue when I was 16 years old and I hadn't developed storytelling methods that well yet.

Is it really weird looking back on it now? Yeah, but I was young and inexperienced and didn't see anything wrong with it because I was clueless to things like that. Despite the alien environment, the accusations really hurt and it forced me to "age up" a lot of things about Ambivian culture. Kailani was originally 15 because Ambivians were considered adults at that age, but she's since been aged up to her early 20's. I made her 15 originally because I was 16 and that age was relatable to me. Nothing more, nothing yes. It really didn't go past that. :shrug:

Still, I can understand the weirdness of it, which is why I opted to change it. The core concept is still the same: people were forced into arranged marriages and the process began when they were children. But there is no more grocery-picking and no creepy borderline-pedophilia concepts. That's trashed and gone. Details on why the event took place and all that good stuff will be revealed in the new version.

This does mean, though, that I will be storing my OLD Prologue as soon as I start posting the new one. The only reason I kept the old one up was in case people really wanted to know context that Chapter 1 did not provide. I don't even link the prologue pages into Chapter 1 anymore because of how inaccurate everything is. I mean, even Federico's personality is vastly different. It's just. It's just bad. It needs to go.

Now I am still VERY PROUD of the old prologue. It was the first comic I had done completely by myself and in quick succession. It was the prologue that brought on responses from people that inspired me to continue the project. I'm also horribly nostalgic and I love my old work to pieces and hate the idea of having to store it away out of view. But, well, sometimes you gotta do whatcha gotta do. I can't risk new readers finding this and thinking it's canon lol

So if you'd like to give one final read of the trashy OLD NO LONGER ACCURATE prologue, save it, mourn it, laugh at it, etc. you may do so here:

Greetings, I'm Filly! I am an artist with a passion for sequential art and world-building. When I'm not slaving over comics I'm developing characters, species, and worlds for a wide range of stories. You can find comics and concepts of many of my stories in my gallery. Sadly, I have more ideas than time to do them but I try my best! I love to post my works online so maybe you guys can enjoy them as much as I do.

My stories typically star alien characters and I love to explore the theme of religion and faith.

Feel free to drop me a comment if you'd like to get to know me! I try to respond to every comment I get, even if I may be slow at doing so! Don't be shy; I don't bite!

Ahh thanks, shucks you're too kind!! I haven't used my dA gallery in a while because I've had a hard time working on art for the past few years, but I intend to post here again sometime!

I think I found you through twitter! Your character designs were so awesome, I just had to follow you anywhere I could find you ;w;!! Take care!
