Yeah, so. Sorry about this, guys. Feel free to comment or PM me if you have any questions. I'll be around, because as I said, Ten Tailors is not over and will continue until the end. And of course there are tons of wonderful comics that I'm still invested in, so yeah, definitely expect to still see me around!

And speaking of comic authors writing novels, if you haven't heard about The Lethian by Rufi Angel you should check it out! I'm about half-way through and loving it! Maybe it will distract you long enough for me to get this plot hitch sorted out... or probably not, because you won't be able to put it down. :3

You don't need a membership to post a comment!

Well, good luck with your plot problem (plotblem) I'll hold a candlelight vigil until you return.

Yikes, don't burn yourself.

But seriously, thanks. :)

Very sad news. I've been silently reading for a long while now and have really enjoyed watching the plot develop.

Best of luck with finding a balance between an organized life and TW@WC! :) I look forward to reading what ever form the story takes in the future and will be patiently waiting until then. :)

Thanks so much! And I'm really sorry to have to bring bad news. :/

The good news is that I've already had some really exciting ideas! I think the freedom to do it in my own time has relaxed the ol' creative juices.

Well, not what I wanted to hear, obviously, but understandable. No use driving onward if you don't know which branch to take.

And a nice shoutout! :D

Honestly: It's a good book. To all people not having bought and read it yet: Do it!

Thank you so much!

And YES I finally finished it today and it's just too great. <3

Yeah... that actually makes a lot of sense. I've also had the problem (in multiple side projects) of potential plot incoherence. You have to be careful about such things, because otherwise they can really bring the story down. Taking a hiatus at this point is probably a good call, for the story, and for you. After all, it's not often that you get to actually see the surface of your desk (about 30% of mine remains uncovered in project-related crap). Nice Lethian plug btw.

Yeah it's all just too iffy right now and that stack of books is too tempting.

I appreciate the patience! <3

Aww totally understandable Roux!!! I can uh...relate all too well to that second panel T__T. COmics are such LIFE suckers- if/when you can figure out a healthy way to go about these things I would LOVE some friendly advice X'D

You can be sure that I'll be right here ready n waiting for TW@WC to continue!

And BY Golly I need to buy that book! I been saying "next paycheck" for like... 4 paychecks by now XDD...

It is time...

LeRenardRoux on 12th Aug 2015, 7:20 PM

[edit] [delete] [reply]

Seriously get it, you will LOVE IT.

Ugh, yeah. I think I was just tooooo focused on one thing for too long. Which is silly because all this reading has been so inspiring and I'd probably know where things were going now if I had just looked around me a bit more. ^_^' whoops.

Aw... I know I haven't commented a ton on the comic, but I have enjoyed reading it as it went along.

Still, I can understand hitting a wall with where to go with things in terms of plot and all that. I've had quite a few of those times.

At least you're not throwing in the towel. Just taking time off from the comic to figure things out and all that, which is never a bad thing. Everyone gets burnt out I believe with things at some point and need breathers.

From one fellow Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan to another, keep up the good work.

Sad face. :(

But we all need breaks from time to time. Good luck having some 'you' time and I look forward to when you pick the story back up. :)

Ahh, I'm sorry, Roux. This is one of the best comics ever, and I very much hope to see it continue, in whichever form feels best to you, in the future.

Good luck!

Aw. This is one of my favorite comics on comicfury. You're a great artist, and I'm really going to miss the comic, but you do what you have to do for you, Roux. Working on a webcomic isn't as easy as people may think, and you have two! (So do I, so I get it.) We will be here when the comic returns. I'm glad that Ten Tailors will continue. I love it!!! :D
P.S.- I love the sketch at the bottom. It's almost as if Loup, Elgin, and Nova are like, Roux, we're withya 100%

Man, I hate "furry" comics and yet I subscribed. It takes a lot to overcome hardwired biases, but TW@WC did that in spades. Best wishes and don't stray too far away from the drawing table.

Yes, I called Loup a "furry".

LeRenardRoux on 13th Aug 2015, 6:07 PM

[edit] [delete] [reply]

Loup thoroughly, heartily, unambiguously, emphatically, and indignantly objects to being called a furry.

He is an anthro. Please.

Thanks for the well wishes! :)

That's ok, I fully understand- both the plot direction and the taste of having an organised life. ;)
I love this story and will continue to keep my eye out for it, in whatever from it takes on.
Good luck! ^_^

AHHHHH ROUX what are you doing to me, you're mixing my emotions and everything up into a big pot of waaaaaah :'DDD

I'm like 'awww nuuu D:' re: the hiatus, and yet also totally relating to it and understanding because I definitely hit a plot wall about eight times while writing parts of Chapter Six up (and I'm sure I'll look back and groan at some of my hasty decisions)... and for sure when you've got a ton of stuff you want to keep sorted in your life then a break seems like a great idea.

And of course I'm really, really touched and honoured by your plug to The Lethian!! ;w;* <333 *hugs super tightly* when I saw that doodle I just about screamed internally XD;; <3 thank you so much Roux!! It's so awesome of you ;3;* <3 I hope you enjoy the rest of it, too!!

That sketch at the end of this page is lovely, by the way XD; <3 thank you so much for giving us TW@WC thus far, I hope the hiatus serves you well and brings extra blessings before you feel ready to come back with a refined plot :D <333

Hey Roux, enjoy the break! This might sound scary, but the 6 year break I took made me more excited than ever in my art and story, and I'm still running string these past 2 years. If it feels like a chore, you need a break. You'll know when you're ready to come back, because you'll be craving it!
Don't be a stranger in the meantime. We love you!

LeRenardRoux on 13th Aug 2015, 6:09 PM

[edit] [delete] [reply]

Oh man, 6 years. XD For everyone else's sake I hope it doesn't take that long! But yeah, it's good to take a breather. Thanks for the support and love, and I'll certainly be around! :D

When all else fails have two guys burst into the room wielding guns.


If nothing else, you could try writing down the various things you can do and what the consequences of those would be. Then you can look at the various possibilities and figure out which one would be better for your story.

LeRenardRoux on 13th Aug 2015, 6:11 PM

[edit] [delete] [reply]

Yeah, I don't want to get too much into the trouble I'm having because it would give stuff away. It's really about some of the details of the universe and backstory that need to be lined up right so I don't do something dumb and get stuck with something that doesn't work.

Or I could evade the problem by having two guys burst into the room wielding guns. XD

I could make a gigantic paragraph to explain my thoughts on your decision, seeing as I'm a fan and this unexpected turn of events comes off as quite a shock, but I guess I'll resume my thought process in two words, at most, and probably an euphemism at that: Aw, bummer.

I completely understand! I've spent the last two months hammering out scripts for issues 4 through 8 of SCG because I do want to know where I'm going. It's important for us as comic creators.

Don't fret, you're doing the right thing. I've seen comics nosedive because the comic creator didn't take a break to work out story details. Plowing ahead works when you are solid on the story, but it's the worst thing to do when you're not solid.

Do what you need to do, enjoy the peace and calm now, because the chaos is always waiting for us when we jump back into the fray! XD

Draginbeard on 7th Aug 2015, 10:35 AM

[edit] [delete] [reply]

I totally get it. I took a good 6 months off to get story and a bunch of other things straight.

Plus I was able to relax and run a game for my group.

The two year mark is right about when I started to feel the burnout coming, so you are not alone there!

[edit] [delete] [reply]

Aw, I'm very sad to hear that >.< this is possibly my favourite comic on here and I always loved seeing new pages, but I completely understand. It's important to know where you're going with something, and plan things out before proceeding. I hope you work things out, and can resume TW@WC in the future.

I know exactly how you feel. Real life always comes first, and hopefully, some new ideas will come to you. I've greatly enjoyed reading your comic, and I can't wait to see what happens next! But take your time of course; your comic is well worth the wait. You do what you think is best.

Your rendering of how your life has changed is very telling. I'm happy for you. Get out there and read books and watch movies and go for walks.

Enjoying your life is the best fuel for your creative energies. You'll see. take your time and have fun.
