Vote over at TWC and you can see Elias weigh in briefly lol
One of my main goals with Mal's journey to becoming an alpha was to show her doing it in her own way, gradually, and not just as a result of adjusting to being a werewolf and overcoming some of her anxiety. She utilizes a lot of soft power, bringing people to her side by being good at figuring out what they need without being pushy. I wanted her to contrast with the other alphas we meet, Sara, Tom, and even Andrew, who all tend to dominate with their personalities through being a lot more pushy with a little bit more fear involved. Mal knows she's not intimidating, so she takes a different tactic.
There are a lot of ways to be a werewolf, and this way works best for her :).
I had a busy busy day yesterday, so now I have to play catch up because I didn't get the word bubbles done for the next pages I'm working on >_>. I'll be out of town in a few weeks to visit some family in the south, so I think my one week buffer is going to finally be toast. Sad, but I need a break I think.
May merch drop! New tote bags and hoodies are being added to the Hivemill store! (I may be the webcomic on Hiveworks who utilizes the merchandise the most, from what I've seen...hm.) The hoodies are unisex sizing, but the tshirts run rather fitted, so I recommend sizing up! (Two of the moons are flipped on the product images, but the files the shirts are printed from are corrected, so you should have moons in the correct order. My bad!)
HTBAW Fandom Wiki is up and running! Thanks to Myk Streja and ShitaraRen for tons of help with moderation efforts and everyone else who's done a ton of work on adding information and filling out the Wiki. Thank you everyone for contributing and it's an amazing and super detailed resource!
Feel free to check out my goofy Amazon store if you're so inclined (this is an ad, as I get a tiny commission if you do buy something), or I have some merch up on Society6 if you're looking for my old store link! Thanks to everyone who's come out to support me through Ko-fi and Patreon!
