A little while ago, I started doing something I should have started doing much longer ago. That something has resulted in a whole lot of progress. Enough progress for the publishing of a new chapter.
Chapter 052: Protocol, which might not be the most exciting of chapters after this long a break, but the next one is just about ready to go up itself, and the one after that is already at worst halfway done. Probably more, as I currently believe it's going to be a comparatively short chapter (but then again, that's what I thought about 52 too, and that one nearly hit my 4k word limit).
But there's also one more thing that's happened since... thanks to my proofreader/editor/at this point kinda co-author David Cablk, there now finally exists an actual picture of Rink! You can see it on the cast page and her profile page, but those are just in black and white to go with the other cast pictured, while the original of this Rink picture was in colour. So, I made a "cover" with the picture to show it off, in the same style as the one I did with Muse's picture once upon a time. I've got some more picture-related plans coming, but for now, please enjoy Rink Kazai. Click it for a not-mildly-downsized version. I don't know why it does that.
I love it.
(also, no, I did not forget to add it to her wanted poster. I'm not using this image for her current poster, for reasons that might become apparent when you read this and the next chapter. But a picture for the poster is under construction.)
