Yes, I suppose Toddy A did indeed decide that red matched Cyril and white-pink matched Petunia.

Thank you everyone that's left me comments to welcome me back. If I haven't replied yet, I'll get to it soon! Thank you all so much. I'm feeling a little nervous now cause I wonder if I can meet all of your expectations with this comic... Haha. I'll just have to do my best! There is a lot coming up after this chapter!

This is officially the last inked-in-2015 page so starting from the next page it'll be all new art! Brace yourselves!

I hope to post a new page... Tuesday? Unless I decide to post earlier. Sorry this is all kind of random! Have a good weekend and thanks for reading.

:^D I wanted to write in my comment from last page that I hope everyone's excitement / woosh of an audience doesn't overwhelm you, but I didn't wanna b a presumptuous busybody, but ajsdjf i wish I'd written it now

I'm so excited for this comic to be back, but more than that I'm happy you're in a better place now. No matter where you're at in life, don't be afraid to put yourself first

I'm looking forward to future updates and wish you nothing but the best !!

That last panel is actually perfect!! TAPV has a very charming humor which I missed a lot. It's very refreshing to see it again :) I love how you drew Todd's expressions in this page!! I can't wait to see how you'll draw him in the upcoming pages~

♡♡♡ You just can't imagine how happy it makes me to wait for the updates. These days at work we're extra busy with the christmas stuff (I work at flying tiger, I honestly have no idea if you have it in Canada, but it's a very cheap shop and it's in the centre of the city so it's always full of people) and whenever I'm sweating and cursing the dumb customers I remember that you're back and that I'm going to read a new page soon and I feel sooo happy!!
I'm super curious to see how everything will turn out, it's as if the time stopped since you were gone and the excitment and joyfullness that this wonderful webcomic used to give me are still exactly the same even if years have passed. You truly are amazing.
It'll sound silly but try not to worry about expectations, as you can see we are all just so glad to have you back safe and sound! And I believe I'm speaking not just for myself when I say that this story couldn't disappoint me ever.
Thank you for your hard work. Thank you. You literally made my life better.
TAKE CARE!!!!!!!

Nozmo, I promise it's impossible to disappoint me at this point. I can't speak for anyone else, but you've already met my expectations and exceeded them with this beautiful interaction between Todd, Cyril, and Petunia. I still can't thank you enough for coming back, I'm so excited!!! Please take your time if you need to though!! Don't rush for our sakes!
Elizabethxo December 7th, 2018, 1:02 pm
Yeah honestly you could post pages of blob people with everyone’s corresponding hairstyle and badly drawn speech bubbles and I’d still be satisfied because it’s this story
You could post ONE PAGE EVERY TWO YEARS AND ID STILL COUNT DOWN THE DAYS!!!
Don’t be nervoussss we’re all just really excited!

DFKLDSNFKJDSFHKDJ my expectations have already been far beyond met with this page alone. i love it poor todd

Dear God, it's BACK. I never thought I would be able to finish this masterpiece. Todd Allison was the one who first inspired me to dress more snazzy; now that I've matured enough to get the base elements of that down, perhaps he will inspire me to take care of plants correctly as well.

In the meantime, I'll continue laughing at the antics of the pretty men.

Wow Cyril, UNGRATEFUL ... accept your beautiful potted plant you jerk.

All jokes aside I'm assuming these plants and the tea Todd mentioned before all have something to do with the spiridium, and I'm curious what he's up to ... chapter 18 is just Todd experimenting with a neurotoxin on Cyril while Petunia takes notes
sorel (Guest) December 8th, 2018, 7:17 am
I first found this comic all the way back in high school, when there were only a couple chapters up...the characters and art style had me uttery charmed and I checked it every day for a while. It was one of my favorites!

The other day it happened to come up in conversation, talking about all the delightful expressions you put on your characters...so I looked up the comic and was shocked to find it updating again!

I just spent the last few hours rereading it and it was every bit as good as I remember (and Todd yelling at a falling Petunia to STOP all the way back in chapter one is still my favorite thing). Thank you so much for coming back!
Guest December 8th, 2018, 4:21 pm
Lol! Todd’s face in the fourth panel
youcanflypig December 8th, 2018, 6:00 pm
The dynamic of these three is just ENDLESSLY ENTERTAINING - they are so different and all SO GOOD.
TripleBaka (Guest) December 8th, 2018, 7:29 pm
Just spent my whole evening rereading this entire comic from the beginning - it enchanted me back when I found it in high school and I was so excited to see your art back on tumblr and to hear that TAPV was back that I almost threw my computer across the room.

It's incredible to see you come back to something that no doubt was so difficult to return to... I hope all of your fans can give you our support as you move forward with this comic. <3
jimthejadeplant (Guest) December 9th, 2018, 10:39 am
Glad you're back! Yessss the trio is finally together! I don't think I've ever raised a plant from a seedling, but I've definitely named them. I'm overjoyed to have this comic back, thank you.
Rachel (Guest) December 9th, 2018, 11:09 am
This made my week! When I discovered you were back through tumblr, my roommate and I cheered. This is my favorite webcomic of all time. You are such a master when it comes to storytelling; let me list the two big ways:

1) The illustrations. The character designs are all really distinct and appealing. Your colors are beautiful. I've said this before but the hands you draw are so expressive it's insane, a lot of other artists don't use hands as much as they should. Also you really take your time playing out little moments, telling a whole story with just images.

2) The writing. Your characters are some of the most engaging ones I've ever read, hands down. Their complex histories are fascinating, and their interactions hint at a history we may not know. I love how you have little moments of flashbacks for many of them. It gives so much depth to them, makes them feel like real people who've lived. The tonal shifts you manage to pull off are awesome, I can easily be crushed with sadness and laughing hysterically within a chapter. Lastly, the plot is awesome. There are so many questions I'm desperate to find answers to, this story masterfully draws you in.

That's why I love this comic so much. You are brilliant, and I'm so grateful to be able to experience your work again. Thank you.
Guest December 10th, 2018, 12:58 am
Thank you Muchísimas gracias! I do not know what else to say
gloom December 10th, 2018, 3:28 am
I'm happy Like so many others, I'm glad you've returned to this comic. I think about your work and its memorable style frequently. I picked up this comic in my younger years before college, and I can proudly say now that I'm an undergrad in my third year working towards my degree in illustration. Your style and story has influenced me, my work as an artist, and how I look at storytelling.

I don't know what happened really when your work was on hiatus, but from what I can gather you were going through some stuff. And I get that. Life has a tendency to be hard.

Anyways, what I'm really trying to say is, I'm happy to see you back on your feet. This comic is really fun to read and is a fond memory for me. I wish you a happy and clear headspace and for your great success. I don't have any social media handles for my work yet, but when I do I would like to share them with you. Until then, I'll see ya around!

Sincerely
-gloom
