Sorry guys, but I really, really can't continue even making the summaries for DN at this point. The reason being, I've been getting a lot of comments from self-entitled fans who complain to me about how I should make the updates in comic form because they don't like to read, or how they didn't sign up for a written run.
(Don't get me wrong though, I'm not shaming people who don't want/like to read lengthly descriptions of bad plot, I don't either. The written updates were pretty much the only solution to giving you all the plot without taking the time to do an actual comic for it, and I didn't expect everyone to bother to sit down and read it all anyway.)
But anyway, I've grown tired. I didn't want
to continue making DN updates at all, I only wanted to do them for you
. If I had just done what I wanted to do for myself from the beginning, I wouldn't have even announced that DN was done, and just work on other things, letting you believe it's on some sort of hiatus for like ten years or something. Also, don't misunderstand, I didn't continue in summary updates because I felt like I needed
to do it for you, I did them because I wanted
to do them for you. I didn't feel pressured into doing it, I thought of it more as a gesture to appreciate how loyal you guys are. Unfortunately, however, it's reached the point where shitlord fans like this have made even working on the updates stressful for me.
Honestly, if I'm going to be getting this kind of shit anyway, considering this is deviantart of all places, then I'd rather get it while working on something I'm invested in.
A common misconception is that I have completely given up on DN because I hated the run. In fact, that is far from the truth. I really like Death's Nuzlocke the same way it's possible to like something despite knowing it's bad or dumb. I also like it because It gateway'd a lot of great interactions for me. It got me into various other communities which I'm grateful for, as well as the nuzlocke community, and I like it a lot for all of this.
I don't, however, like the run objectively. I don't like it when I look at it as a narrative, or anything like that, and writing for James' extremely limited emotional range that came from him being emotionally stunted made me hate the character made me dislike the character while still loving him because his emotional development wasn't meant to be in this comic, but the next.
(and the only reason i'm even revealing anything to begin with is i'm sure some people will think i'm quitting DA or something)
And finally, to any of you guys who have a problem with anything I do with my comics or uploads and feel like I owe you something:
