Gunsolo noticed that Theresa's hair is considerably longer now than it was in previous chapters. In fact, if you go back and look at chapter 5, you'll see that her hair was just down to her shoulders. Now, it is a bit past her shoulders and in a pony tail. We've been purposefully growing out her hair a bit since chapter 4 but did so in stages. Gunsolo asked how long it has been since chapter 5 so here's the official timeline of MotA thus far. Instead of giving specific dates I'm noting time as relative to the present day. I'm also rounding to the nearest month.

In other news!
Keith is having a blitz commission sale. He's offering full-color, single character portraits for just $25. This is a serious bargain folks. The number of slots he's offering is limited so I'd leap on it while you've got the chance. You can find details here.
