As far as the next chapter goes... I'm sorry for the delay. It's been a busy time, and I still have that last Adventure of Adventureness chapter I keep meaning to get to as well. No telling when the next chapter will be out, though I'm shooting for sometime before the month is out. It could easily come much sooner than the end of the month, it might not, I can't say right now. But it'll be out sometime this month, that much I can promise.
