    • I’d love to know what those symbols on the Headmistress’ cloak and hat mean.

    • Aaaand we’re back ! I owe you guys an explanation, though. What the f happened ?

      Long story short, I started working on this page in June, shortly after posting the previous one. And then, summer funk set in. I’ve always been subject to depressive moods, and summer has always been a particularly hard season on that aspect. I live in a town where 90% of the population is university students, and so the town is quite dead during the summer, to the point that many stores and restaurants just close for 2 months. So when you add that ghost town feeling, to the “everyone but me is on vacation”, to the absence of kid’s laughs from the nearby school, you obtain a sad mood Ethan that doesn’t work very fast.

      With other, paid projects to tackle and limited energy to do so, I kinda put CH on the backburner for a few weeks. And then came the move.

      As you may remember, about one year ago the apartment below mine burned down – I since learned that it wasn’t an accident (there were 3 fire starts) and that it may have been done by the tenant to fraud his insurance – and my apartment was thoroughly smoked, which caused me to move to a temporary apartment. Seven months later, making it September, my estate agency unexpectedly called me to inform me that the apartment had been cleaned and was ready for use. Ensued a somewhat rushed move (with no van or truck, only my roommate’s parents’ car >>) that resulted into even more delays for CH. The delays in restoring my internet line didn’t help.

      After things calmed down, it was already November. And when came the time to work back on CH, I noticed something : it’s really, REALLY hard to get back to working on such a big project when you have stopped for a while. I simply couldn’t sit down and resume work from where I stopped. To complicate matters even further, I rewrote parts of the script which had grown stale (so to speak) in these months and replaced them with fresher ideas, which added even more delays. So in the end, as days and weeks added up, CH ended up with several months of hiatus.

      So I’d like to apologize to you readers for keeping you in this stupid library for so long. The plot is moving forward once again, and today I introduce you to Miss Howitzer and Headmistress Tsukisame. I hope you’ll like where this is going ! 🙂

    • Whoops. let’s see smooth skin, fin like protrusion from under the cloak, would this be some sort of shark like race? Let’s hope the Headmistress is understandable cuz that Bunny dude… wait, oh is that bunny a lady? Either way doesn’t look happy!

      huh so miss Howitzer, does that mean she goes off with a bang? I bet she is head of security or something.

    • ;3

    • While a profuse apology may be excessive, some apology is necessary.

      You don’t want to lose control of that key. Perhaps a little flip or swish of that fluffy tail of yours could sweep that key towards you. Gather your things and be out of sight and mind as quickly as possible.

      Headmistress Tsukisame appears to be an aquatic species. I wonder how rare would that be?

      And it looks like yet another magic library that Able is banned from.

    • do you have a rappor with these two? the semi-military bunny with a bun does not seem happy to see you

    • Uh oh, punishment is in order. Let’s hope they go easy on you.

    • Hey guys, Chimaera High is back after an absurdly long hiatus. I want to apologize profusely for the delays, which are due partly to real life getting in the way, and partly to me having terrible scheduling skills.

      As I announced here earlier, I stayed at a clinic for 3 weeks, and that put me behind schedule something fierce. Then I attended my brother’s wedding. Then I added a bunch of commissions in the mix to make up for the money I wouldn’t make during that time. CH stayed a secondary priority for a while and kept getting late.

      So I decided to change some things. First, as you might have noticed with the smoother anims, I started using Flash. I still have to improve some things, but it helps tremendously when I make anims that are more than 3 frames long. Like that shoulder grab :3 I also added a progress bar on the right, so you can follow my progress on the next page and make sure I’m not actually dead.

      I hope you’ll keep enjoying Chimaera High despite the speedbumps. Today, meet Yume ! ^^

    • Oh neat a marionette/golem/automaton kinda thing that’s really cool… does this mean there are such things such as prosthetic limb replacements? Are such things also used for combat and assassination?

      ehem sorry i find this sort of thing immensely interesting at any rate Yume is definitely cute.

    • Darnit! I said no shenanigans! >_<

      So tell us about this Yume person… oid… thing.

    • Depending on how much of a “paper trail” you want to leave some subtly might be in order. Likely Yume will happily tell anyone with authority who asks ‘this one’ what searches were done and by whom. So asking for a specific book may draw attention later, depends on how tight security is at this library. Best to get directions to that dream section, unless we are talking about a section with several hundreds titles just on the topic of dreams.

      And don’t forget to smooth your tail out, nothing says ‘up to something’ like a frizzed tail.

    • It’s all explained in the FAQ 🙂

    • Oh no, as it has been a couple of week or so since you posted this. I hope you are doing better now.

      The flash animations are lovely! Please do take you time in doing the pages and be sure to make sure your health comes first! I am glad to you see you are back!

    • I’ve had several IRL problems that unfortunately caused me to put CH on the backburner. However, I’m currently working on the page, and I’ll explain in more detail the reasons for the hiatus once I post it.

      Current goal update date is some time this week.

    • I am glad to see this comic still going. Take your time.

    • Sorry for the delays ! This month has been very busy. Between the holidays, preparing my brother’s marriage, preparing my future stay at a diet clinic, meeting with my ex-employer at the tribunal (hopefully for the last time)… I’ve had little spare time to work on Chimaera High.

      I hope you guys had a nice 2014 and that 2015 has been kind to you so far. At least I hope you’ve had it better than Alice ^^

    • That’s… a lot of simmering anger. Also, one has to wonder what Abel did to warrant expulsion from the Library.

    • O-kay, Alice, you need a break from the heavy memories and dark thoughts for today. Remember that Max invited you to join her at the Stormball fields after you’re finished at the library?

    • Oops >> Should be fixed now.

    • Librarians have a network :p

    • It needn’t be a sexual attraction. Children are as protective of their parents as they are of their siblings; it’s family. Any “outsider” has to overcome that before being accepted into the family. It’s as easy for a widow’s daughter to see her mother’s suitors as interlopers and tom-cats trying to usurp her deceased father’s rightful place as it is for what seems — on the surface, at least — to be what Alice is experiencing.

      The time-line isn’t right, here, though. Alice’s parents were married for twenty years prior to her mom’s death three years ago, Alice is in her mid-teens, and she’s been having these nightmares since childhood. They’ve just been recurring more commonly, lately.

      Her more recent evident anger and apparent jealousy about the women seeking to enter her Papa’s life makes sense in terms of a child who’s lost her parent, but those nightmares don’t. And even Alice recognizes, intellectually, at least, that her jealousy and anger are irrational and unreasonable in the circumstances (although she might need some help internalizing that rational thought and coming to accept it emotionally, but that’s a bit premature until her Papa gets serious about a relationship with one of his suitors, and, even there, time spent getting to know the woman who manages to catch his eye will do more to help Alice accept her and let go of the jealousy when the time comes.)

      It’s the nightmares that are unusual, here, and that need to be dealt with. Alice’s protective instinct for her family is perfectly normal, and I’m confident it will resolve normally as she, her Papa, and some lovely woman grow to form a new family out of the tragedy that struck the old one.

      • (That’s “married for twenty years” according to “No Dissing Papa” (http://chimaerahigh.comicsbreak.com/prologue/no-dissing-papa), not the twelve years of happy marriage mentioned above. I think Alice is recalling the twelve years that she, her Papa, and her mom were a family, forgetting that her mom and Papa were married eight years before Alice was born. Twelve would be commensurate with Alice’s age when her mother died. An easy mistake to make, given that Alice is a bit upset at the time she asserts twelve years of marriage instead of twenty.)

    • Have you tried telling your Papa about how you feel? Maybe you would feel better talking to him.
