ALRIGHT here's the whole deal.

tl:dr: This comic is ending because I couldn't bring myself to make every page, I made an ask blog instead, send questions there, read the guidelines first, thanks, here it is: https://ask20timeskirby.tumblr.com/

Every once in a while I would remember about this Q&A comic and tell myself: "Yeah, maybe one day I should update it", but as you have noticed, I never really updated it since more than two years ago. But then I started asking myself, what is stopping me from updating? There's always a reason why a comic stops updating, sometimes multiple. Well, in this comic's case, I realized that I was always too lazy to make the pages, for a simple reason.

You know, making these pages is boring because they always follow the exactly same pattern. Gigi in the left, character who's answering (if the question is not for her) on the right. Gigi reads the questions, character answers it. Repeat 9 more times. Eh. Boring to make. Not to mention the characters always had to be limited to answering the questions in one panel because of that, so there was hardly any variety. Sure, I did make some exceptions, but very few, and usually at the end of the page. The thing is, I love answering these questions. Not only they are fun to answer, they are also a great help with building my characters; I need to know how a certain character will answer to a certain question that they would probably never face in the comic, it's great practice!

But yeah... If I'm too lazy to make pages, this will never work. So, the solution: not make pages! ...Or, better, text only, or text mostly. This is where the ask blog came.

I took inspiration from an ask blog I follow on Tumblr, Ask Ace Attorney, which is pretty popular and active, and its format works pretty well from what I see. So I figured out, why not try something similar instead of leaving YAWR dead? In fact, why not completely close the comic and focus on that blog only? And such, I started working on it, and now it's ready to take in questions or, as I've been calling them, letters. If you want to ask something, go here https://ask20timeskirby.tumblr.com/ , read the submission guidelines and then click on the "Submit Here!" link to submit your letter. Though I still have some other things to mention, so keep reading here!

If you asked a question that was never answered here, feel free to submit it again on the blog. You can even resubmit old questions if you wish, if you think I'll answer them differently from the last time I did so.

One of the major differences from the blog to the comic is that, in the blog, there's no limit to how many questions you can send in, just send them! You can also ask a question like you were another character, so be creative! You can even ask questions to characters on a specific time period, so the possibilities are endless! And there's really no way to ask questions on the wrong place this time around as well... I think...

And lastly, I'm not really sure how popular that blog will be, though I imagine I'll get at least some few questions every month. I mean, this comic, even when it was not updating, still got questions posted, so I'm pretty sure there are people still interested on this stuff.

Anyway, that's it! Go to that blog and send me some questions... :)

(I'll mark this comic as completed soon. I mean, it isn't exactly completed, but a comic that isn't really a comic, you know, with a plot, won't ever be truly completed... Eh, you get the idea.)

@Kirbyfan27:

You don't need a Tumblr account to to submit questions there. As for cheking for updates, I've actually started to follow 20TK's update schedule for that, so if the comic updates, the blog has updated too.
