I said January and it's still January!
So yes—Volume 06: The New Harmony Pirates is here, and with it, Chapter 051: A ship of love. Which turned out to really not be as short as I thought it would be, coming in just shy of 3500 words. Despite the fact that this very much is a transitional chapter between the Gondol arc and the arc that's about to kick off.
It also contains a thing that, uh, you might notice isn't 100% complete and I have no idea when it'll be. So, yeah.
No real promises I can make now, but the next two chapters are getting written sort of simultaneously and they're coming in pretty well so far.
Also, the character page will update at some point between now and the next chapter being published.
