It’s been a long journey and a wonderful ride. I feel like I should have a much longer spiel to put here, but I’m finding there aren’t really the words for it. I want to thank everyone who’s read Stitches, and especially those who have left their kind thoughts. Your comments have really meant the world to me, and have made telling this story so incredibly rewarding. I couldn’t have done it without you. I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I’ll probably post a pin-up next week, but essentially this is it for the story. As promised, there will be a sequel. I have most of it planned out, and while in many aspects it’s incredibly different than Stitches, in many aspects it’s strikingly similar. So the journey isn’t really over. (At least, I don’t feel it is.) I’m going to finish Arkaedea before posting it, though. If you’d like to follow it when I get there, just keep Stitches on your smackjeeves favourites and I’ll post a notice here when I’m about to start it. (Along with the occasional Stitches mini-story or pin-up, perhaps.) Or you can follow Arkeadea, or my Deviantart page. (http://yeaka.deviantart.com/)
Again, thank you so, so much to all my readers. I love you all inconceivably.

but so beautiful sniff:
I loved this story so much...I hate to see it end but, I love everything you did with it, character developement, designs, even the quirky jokes these past couple of years. Again, no matter what you plan to do in the near future you will have a dedicated fan. :'3
and so ends a great work of art
ive been reading and following for almost a year now and only recently started posting and becoming acitve and this is what must be said
we all have had a smashing good time with this comic, and im a sure that it is painfull for all who have read to see it end. but all good things come to an end but the journey and ride getting there is what makes it great. this was one of my favorite webcomics, i will miss it but i will always have good memories of it, and my hope is that we all will look forward and be glad for what we got to exspierence
:( Now I have to find something else to look forward to on the weekends. I can't wait for sequels and new Arkeadea updates, but I loved this story and it will always have a special place in my favorites folder.
I don't think I've commented on either of your comics yet, though I always want to. I want to say that I adore your powerful way of storytelling, never even mind the beautiful world you've created for the setting of these stories. As someone who as a hobby creates races, creatures, countries, cultures and settings, I absolutely adore your work and admire your skill.
I have to admit that I'm secretly hoping that there's further expansion on Niku's story or involvement therein. Bonus points if there's more on Sef, or any of the other Rii. They just strike me as some beautiful characters that took effort, reasonable thought, and common sense.
I look forward to more of that beautiful storytelling, and I wish you the best. Thank you for allowing myself and many others the experience! :>
"Thank you!" is really the most appropriate thing I can say...
Stitches definitively took a ton of effort to write and draw. Completely finishing the story obviously required an admirable amount of patience and dedication. You can definitively be proud of yourself for accomplishing this! :)
I've been reading this story for over two years and I've really enjoyed every step of the way. I love both the book and the comic: It's been a rollercoster of emotions all along the way.
I can honestly say that Stitches has been my favorite webcomic I've ever read (especially with such a cute ending)... So a big "Thank you" for making Stitches!
I've been tagging along for a few months; I'm glad you made it through the entire story! By now I would of given up, being stubborn as I am. I'm so glad you did finish it though, rarely a hiatus expect for the one when you redrew the older comics. It really was a great story at that factor.
I'm glad Arkaedea is restarting, though I am a bit sad to see Stitches go. Maybe I'll buy the novel and enjoy it from there. Can't wait to see what comes with the future!
