Hey! I really am enjoying your story and characters so far!
Them entitled peeps don't deserve taking up your mental space. As far as I know, you do not have any obligations to anyone besides yourself for this project. Take your time and prioritise your own health and well-being first.
It's a big project to tackle with a single person, especially as a non-funded hobby project that your trying to manage while having a life outside of it.
You've done an amazing job so far despite how much your juggling. And I look forward to what you can do when you when you are feeling supported and excited to work on this to-be masterpiece~
