And that's the end of Chapter 10! Yes, you can have a red-eyed Hyde as a treat. Please check in next week for the cover reveal of Chapter 11!
Reader question: I'm thinking of putting together an "ask the characters!" style FAQ as bonus material. Ideally these would be little comic strips, though who knows how much bandwidth I'd actually have for this, heh. Does anyone have any fun (or maybe serious??) questions they would like the characters of TGS to answer? Please leave them in the comments!
Store update: I've got more charms in stock! I'm so sorry about the long wait on inventory, and I still need to restock prints and bookmarks. I wish I had a good excuse for this, but honestly it was just pandemic-induced inertia hitting me. I'm gonna try to keep the shop better stocked from now on!!
For all my talk of villain-mode Jekyll last week, I want to clarify that I'm not setting you up for some silly "you thought Mr. Hyde was the villain, but the real villain is Dr. Jekyll!" twist. As a general rule, I don't write stories with villains who need to be defeated, and I am very much not interested in discussions of "X character is a bad person, actually." I aim to write characters you can understand and empathize with, even if you don't agree with them. The "villain-mode" thing I talked about last week is more of an affectation than anything. Anyone can embody villain-mode in the right situation and it's meant to be a fun Miranda Priestly moment, not a damning statement about the character's overall morality.
