I know there's a plot hole around how Arcadia died (as much as anyone can "die" in Polyopolis), but I wanted to get the story moving along. This was another reason I kept delaying it; I couldn't think of a good time or method for that to happen. But she did it to herself, to demonstrate how immortal she is (not knowing that someone had changed the program on her).


If I were going back to make this into a real story, I'd have her do it after she learns that people are catching on to how she didn't actually invent anything. She'd use it as a quick escape from a group of Polypolitans who're starting to ask too many questions (even so I'm not clear on exactly what she does).

But this is a daily sketch journal, not a longform illustrated short story, so I figured I'd draw the parts I felt inspired to.
