It's been almost a year since I've done any work regarding DTS.
The news post that I posted all the way back then still kinda wraps up what's been going on since then ...

And in all honesty, I don't know where I want, wanted, or planned to go with DTS at the moment, or even in the long run of it.
I just don't have any motivation for it.

After a pretty long period of thinking about it, I've thought about rebooting DTS.


It's not particularly a decision I'm 100% happy with, but I think it's for the best.

Personally, and hypocritically, I would always dread seeing when someone deleted/rebooted their comic, especially if I've been invested in it for quite a long period time ...
And when I first started EOD/DTS, I always vowed and promised that I would never do that ...

So again, I'm definitely conflicted on the issue.
In the end though, I've grown as both a spriter and a writer.
I have so much potential for crafting a better story ...

While I am content with DTS, as I said before, I don't want to be railroaded to a plot point, climax, or conclusion because of the decisions I made when I was younger and less skilled ...
I know people enjoy DTS, but I want to further entertain people with a better story, as well as not disappoint anyone.

I've thought about this for a long time, and once again, I've been so conflicted over it, but I believe that it's the better choice in the long run ...

... So let's start anew, should we?...
I'm (somewhat) happy to officially announce DTS' spiritual successor of sorts: "By the Victors".
I hope to see you all there, whenever I get off my lazy butt and start on that and whatnot X'D

If anyone, who just read through DTS or has been a longtime fan, has ANY questions about DTS (which can be spoiler related, I have no problem discussing what was planned to happen) or the reboot/successor, go ahead and ask them here!

To go ahead and state some information about the latter ...

>Pretty much every main character in DTS will be in BtV, or in the least, serve as the basis for another. I want to make it so that you don't have to say goodbye to any of the pieces of cardboard that I call characters that you may have liked XD
Obviously, I'm going to rewrite some so that they're better, but Quartz and Maze, aka the two characters that everyone seemed to like, are going to be pretty alike how they were before, just (hopefully) written better

>BtV's plot will be completely different from the plot of DTS, and it's not going to be a PMD comic as well

>I have no ETA on when BtV will begin, but I'll try to post some updates on that if needed
Very little written planning has been so far, and most of what I've done is large scale brainstorming and discussion with my girlfriend XD

>This site won't be deleted nor will the pages, and BtV will be posted on a separate site
I just can't let go of the memories, okay????


I think that's all for now, so if any of you have any questions, go ahead and shoot! ^^
Once again, and for the final time, thank you all so much.
You've been a great community ^^

I have returned, my friends
Where I was and what I was doing, I have no idea :D

@WiispNightmare
how dare you insult my most precious cat-astrophe

And good!
They are here for you to glomp forever

Well, bascially
They were kinda the guardian of the "dream world"
Basically watched over while Cresselia wasn't there
That ... was kinda it, as boring as that is XD
I'm sorry that I hyped you up for nothing X'D

Nope!
He was going to live no matter what!
Some ideas included
- Basically using him as a tank
- Tea Party with Quartz I think
that's it
I wasn't a good planner okay

And sure, we could talk about it
With what little ideas and plot points I actually remember XD
I think I could make some sort of basic outline though
It won't be good though X'D

@Midnight-fox18
Thank you so much, dork XD
I know I thanked you when you posted this originally, but really, even to this day, thank you for all the support that you've given me! You have done so much for me, and in no way can I ever repay you for what you've done JUST for this comic ...
You're absolutely amazing, Sweetheart!
I love you so much!

@Skylar101
Okay
I feel the worst for delaying on your comment specifically
But no, BtV will be hosted on SJ, and most likely just SJ!
I'm very sorry for the possible scare ^^'
I love this site and moreso, this community, especially all you, so I have no plans to change the host of BtV!

@Capejedi
Yeah, I didn't upload an image with this page, so that was purposely, but thank you!

@LovedDarkLonelinessEevee
Aww, thank you so much! That means a lot, truly, so thank you!
I'm happy to hear that you loved DTS, and that this silly story inspired you and made you laugh! That's really the best thing I could ever as to hear, so again, thank you! I hope that DTS continues to do what it did for you, and maybe even its successor will do the same! Once more, thank you, LDLEevee! ^^

@Blizzard
I missed you! XD
And no worries, I'm happy to see you here, especially with how long you've been around!
Thank you so much for your support then and now, and it's seriously an honor to hear that from you, and I hope to see you around in the near future, Blizzard! Again, thank you so much for everything!

Oh you guys won’t be disappointed the new one is going to be so much better
Like for example remember DTS Crystal the bland old eevee
He’s writing BTV Crystal so much better, in my opinion, she’s so much more interesting!
Seriously we were RPing once, to help practice thinking in the minds of our characters in preparation for our new comics, and the new Crystal he’s written out was so much more fun to play with!
Not to mention all the bonds and themes and my gosh BTV is already off to a better start than DTS, thanks to 403’s improved skill
You fans likely won’t be disappointed! :D
And you likely won’t be disappointed either once you get really into writing it, Jackie
Don’t deny it >:3

But yeah, I’m glad you finally got the courage to say this! You go!
