Well, here we are. We've reached the end. And, to be honest, I'm not really sure what to say, so I'm just going to type until I feel like I've gotten all my thoughts out there. I apologize in advance if I start to ramble.

Firstly, I'd like to apologize if you're confused about literally anything. I was once taught in one of my English classes that, when writing an essay, you have to make sure to explain everything because your reader can't get inside of your head. It seems like a simple enough concept, but it means that you have to read through everything you've written as if you know nothing about it. It's a lesson that I've applied to m comic-making, and it's a lot harder to do than one might think. So, if I failed to explain anything properly, or if you're still confused about things, then I'm sorry; I failed to let you into my head so you could understand it better.

Secondly… wow. It's… actually over. I never thought it would happen. I hoped that it would, but between the constant hiatuses and the shifts in interest and all of my other comic work, I started to doubt whether or not I'd be able to finish this. Between the hiatuses, delays, and the pages themselves, {MUTE} has been running for five years. Today is literally its fifth anniversary - and the reason I screwed with the update schedule so much near the end was so that things would end on this day. It's a big day for me. Heck, it's a big day for all of us. We've been on this ride together for five years… and now it's coming to a stop and letting us all off.

I think if I were to do it again, there's definitely a lot of things I would change. But, at the same time, I'm quite satisfied with the way that things turned out. It's weird knowing that tomorrow, I'll wake up, and there won't be anything to worry about with {MUTE} anymore. It's weird knowing that I won't have to make comics, post updates, or anything like that for {MUTE} anymore. I guess that's what happens when you've been working on something for five years… it becomes part of your life. And now I have to let that part of my life go.

And I'm sure it's weird for you guys, too. I know a lot of you were complaining that the comic was ending, and you wanted it to keep going. But the comic ending at 300 is something that's been planned for a long time now… and you can't exactly continue a comic about a character who's dead, can you? Still, it's nice to know that you like the comic so much that you wanted it to continue. It gives me a weird sense of accomplishment that I was able to write a story that captivated you to that level.

A lot of things have happened since the day I've started this comic. Heck, going back to the first few pages, it's hard to believe that it's even the same comic. Drafts were written, pages were made, lessons were learned… and I think I made a few friends through the whole thing as well. It's been an amazing run, really. I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. And I'm glad you all were here to share it with me.

So, whether you've been with me from the start, or you're a new face just popping in at the end… Thank you. Thank you for everything you've done. Thank you for supporting me during this project, this comic, this experience. It's been a long run, and it's been a lot of fun. I can only hope you had as much fun as me.

So long, everyone. I'll see you on the other side of the next button.

EclipseTC, 12 Apr 2013 02:10 am ( Reply )

;w; so glad to at least have been a part of it...congrats, Niv. Very well done.

edit: after getting over the fact that it's truly over, now I have to read it all again.

Tears....real tears....damnit shard...I need a moment....a long long moment....

I was expecting some Evanescence song TBH.

Glad to see you saw things through to the end tho.

I'm assuming this is one of those "if my death will bring you peace then so be it..." type moments as a sense of Redemption for her actions.

Oh man, them tears. I salute this comic.

@Shard:Awww....it ended...din´t like it to end...either way great Job Shard!

TheDarkman1990, 12 Apr 2013 01:16 pm ( Reply )

Awwwww it ended. ;_;

Wow it has been 5 years since it started. I think I joined the comic back then around page 50 or something like that. I was always looking forward to the next chapter every week, because I liked the story so much. And now it's over. And time sure did fly by. In the end you managed to touch meyemotional side. Which not many storys did tbh.

So long {MUTE}, it was a great time.

From what I can understand, she still had a few lives left.

Screw you i don't even know what it means >_>

Majin Tobias, 13 Apr 2013 10:44 am ( Reply )

Wow...it's actually over. I mean sure I was looking forward to seeing how it ends, but...wow. I can't belive Katai's actually dead too. Rupph finally got what she wanted, though it makes me wonder. Was it all worth it?

I like how none of these comments are worrying about Des

He only lost the girl he loved, so you know, no big deal.


S (Guest), 15 Apr 2013 02:13 pm ( Reply )

Came lurking around to see how it was going, and holy shit. You finished it.

5 years dedicated to one thing is a godlike feat. Ya did good Shard. Ya did good.

Well, I gotta say, even though I didn't get some parts, I really enjoyed {MUTE}. It's been one of those comics that really draw you into it and the story's been really amazing^^

Holy crap...
Poor Des...
That zoom-up on Katai's deactivated face scared the crap out of me though.

Sagat the Tiger, 08 Jul 2013 01:27 am ( Reply )

This was a great comic. 5 years, and it flowed smoothly throughout the time. It's a shame it's over, but every good story has to have an ending.

Thank you for making this comic.
