As always, reblogs really help people discover the comic! <3
ok im heading to bed now but, basically, if you like mp! and want it to be more than three chapters long, you should try to be vocal about it. right now mp! is just a labor of love and it isn’t helping me out financially, which wouldn’t be a big deal except the fact that i’m really not making much money right now.
i love working on mp! and i’d love to keep it going and increase updates and make merchandise and the more you guys respond, the more i am able to do those things.
this isn’t a threat or anything, obviously those things are a ways off, there’s probably about a year-ish before chapter three comes to a close, but i guess it’s stuff to start thinking about now?
anyway, i’m off to bed. goodnight, lovelies!
Anonymous asked: oh man i don't want monster pop to end! /only/ three chapters? ;_; honestly i thought it was going to be this long saga or something haha
mp! will probably be longer than three chapters, but i can’t promise anything. currently, i have three chapters written and though there is definitely potential for a lot more mp!, the first three chapters also tie pretty well together without too many loose ends. once chapter three is underway i’ll probably have a better idea of where mp! is headed, based on how i’m feeling towards it and on reader interest and things like that. i’ll probably also start thinking about printing copies of mp! once the third chapter is finished.
of course, that’s not for a while, tho. chapter two ends next thursday and then i am taking a break for the holidays and also for finishing the writing on chapter three. mp! will probably be back within about a month or so and then i’m guessing that chapter three will go on for nearly a year (less if i am able to update more, tho that will only happen if i’m able to be more financially stable)
Anonymous asked: do you have any other comics planned for when you're finished with mp?
blood anchor is very slowly being worked on. ideally i would be able to work on both comics at the same time, though at the moment i am not financially stable enough to pull that off.

Anonymous asked: hi maya! i love mp, i just started reading at 1am and i'm hooked haha... now it's like 2am,,, i was wondering!! if there was going to be a canon genderfluid and/or nonbinary character making an appearance in mp, bc i'd love to see some representation... i mean, it's not a request, it's your comic and you can do what you like, but i was just wondering!! bc i think that'd be wonderful... have a nice day!
i would very much like to be able to do that! but it really depends on how long mp! ends up being. at this point, there won’t be any new characters added in chapter 3 (or if there are, they will be very minimal), so having additional characters would require me to continue past chapter 3 (which will probably end up happening, but i’m not 100% yet)
thalassiq asked: NOT MP RELATED but im so excited i get to go to burbank this weekend cause now i finally get to meet you (as in see you and shyly admire you). i'm going to steal your hair while you sleep.
i s2g liz. i s2g.
you know what, next time you wake up on our couch it won’t be because i have covered your nose in whipped cream. it will be because i have farted directly into your mouth.
Anonymous asked: Not MP related, but I'm so glad I'm going to AX this year cause now I finally get to meet you (as in see you and shyly admire you) with my best friend, and we're both big fans of MP and your work.
aww gosh, thank you, i’m excited too! hopefully by AX i will actually begin to sell more MP! prints. i have a couple finished already (mainly, this and this) but i haven’t really felt confident enough yet to sell them since i’m not really sure how many people out there want MP! merchandise. but! here’s to hoping.
lordtien asked: You don't have to publish this. But I caught on pretty much from the moment I saw him that Percy was trans. Being trans myself I was easily able to spot the hints, and thus it didn't need to be stated. This isn't a case of "the author says so so it must be true" you literally put it in the comic if you can catch it. And I loved that. It doesn't have to broadcasted outloud because honestly, it's not something that needs to be. Most people don't want that kind of stuff broadcasted off the bat.
i’m just going to publish this without comment because
that was exactly what i was going for
