a little over a year ago, august 14th to be exact (the first 5 pages are back dated), i began kukuburi with a spark of an idea and a mission to have fun and tell an entertaining story. though i had the basic structure of the story worked out before i laid pencil i sometimes feel like a passenger on a ride being piloted by nadia and crew. they say characters tend to write themselves and these surely have, taking me in directions and adventures i never dreamed of. who knew 100 pages would come so quickly, i feel i need 500 more just to tell the story i want to tell!
i want to thank you all, new readers and old, for the support and especially the understanding when updates became a little sporadic. i hope you’ve all enjoyed the ride thus far and i hope to keep you all glued to the screen as best as i can in the pages to come.
thank you all :)
as well, i would like to give a quick thank you to evan yeong who was kind enough to scour the cast pages and correct my horrible horrible grammer.
…and now i must return to this grant thingie that is due in the next few hours.
EDIT: i would like to extend a thanks to ODO for rectifying my (or would it be nadia’s?) russian transliteration. next order of business is learn russian…
RE/EDIT: and a thank you to tsinik, an honest to goodness russian, for the final tweak on the dialogue!
RE/RE/EDIT: i love this growing community! a final thanks to therius for the last word on the, uhm, word.
we’ll be encountering more of nadia’s baba later in the story, which is when cyrillic will come into play. but for now…
