Well, now all the mystery aspects from the beginning make sense. Plus, we have the appearance of Rakos disease. Those comments aren't much, but I continue to await further plot development.

I just had a scary thought:

If Rako's is genetic, and Jennifer's family carries it...what if Sean is a descendent of Jen?! Whoa. My head just 'sploded.

It's contagious. I was thinking along those same lines. I can't wait to see where you go with this, I have my thoughts.

A couple more pages are up, as well as some new fanart. (This is so completely not humble of me, but I love hearing people musing over one of my stories! Mwhahah!) This is almost the end of chapter 5, believe it or not. Short ... too short, but oh well. ^^;

XD at the second-to-last page. It's great how the first time he gets to use her first name, he asks if he can sleep inside. That's SO what I would have asked, too.

What I really like about Skipping Tomorrows besides the art is that the dialogue is believable. It's very . . . human. Shawn and Emma and everyone else seem like real people. Keep it up!

.rai//

EDIT: OMG. I was re-reading from the start, and . . .

[spoiler] I wonder if the point of her time displacement is for Emma to become the sponsor artist for the man studying Rako's disease in order to save Shawn's life in the future, because her art will give them the resources needed to find a cure before Shawn dies!? OR . . . what if Shawn dies before Emma returns to 1910, and she remembers the researcher back then and determines to find her "link" and take him up on his offer in order to keep Shawn from dying . . . augh! My head asplode! [/spoiler]

Yay! Lots of updates now! I like how the pieces are coming together but there are still plenty of areas for speculation.

Possibly... maybe "Skipping Tomorrows" has more meaning than originally once thought.

Updated. Question - do I need to post here every time I update, or do most of you look on your own anyway?

I look on my own, but while you're here taking opinions I would adore getting to read your thoughts with your daily updates. Sure, it's one more thing on a tight schedule, but to me it just adds so much more meaning.

it would be really cool, to read your thoughts, but it would add extra work, and since you often post a few pages at a time you might just want more of journal or blog on it rather than a commentary for every page^^

you might just want to play around with it now and implement it when you start your next web manga.

can't wait to see more!

To be honest, I only check when you tell us there are updates. If you had a schedule I'd check on my own, but I don't think there has been one as of late (though, to be fair, I haven't analyzed the update times either).

I think Skipping Tomorrows is totally awesome. XD I started reading it a while back, and I'm hooked! Plus, the artwork is GREAT!!!!!! XD I didn't even realized there was a thread for it on here until just like...today! >.< Keep up the totally unbelievable work! XDDDD *gives Skipping Tomorrows her seal of approval*

Well, I've been doing my best to put up two pages every Tuesday and Thursday. I've actually done it a couple weeks in a row, even!

Thanks for all the feedback, I appreciate it! Sorry about there being no update tomorrow - I really am going to be strapped for time. ^^;

Tuesday and Thursday, then. That's easy enough. Do you generally update the night before, in the morning, or whenever you are able?

Usually during the day - once in a great, great while I've put it up the night before. This next update is going to be a good one, cause I got 3 Ash original wallpapers to put up as well as pages. ^^

That's fine. The reason I asked is that with some webauthors I only check the day after their official releases because I'm not certain when they actually put it up. So Wednesday and Friday for me.
