Winter Hiatus comes to and end, and we officially begin Chapter 6 - Disconnected next week. Thanks again for the patience during the break, I'm pleased with the amount of buffer I've built up, but this is a longer chapter than the others so here's hoping I can make it to the end with no hiccups.

Big thanks to Bassam who donated to the comic! Thanks, much appreciated!

Hooray, I can't wait until next weekend!

Well, I guess this really leaves no guesses as to what "Disconnected" is alluding to happening in this chapter.
Notos 18th Jan 2015, 10:02 PM edit delete reply
It applies to a few things, but disconnecting from the city is certainly one.

Are they gonna visit a planetarium? Ne, NE?
Ttownlittlebear 18th Jan 2015, 8:49 PM edit delete reply
My guess is that they are outside the city somewhere.

Love the twinkling stars. BTW

Not quite!

Ridiculously excited - can't wait! Thanks once again.

One typo: "mandatory", not "manditory" when hovering over the hourglass. (This seems to be the case with a few other title pages too)

Thanks! I've updated it.

Beautiful! Is there a way to get the image as a desktop wallpaper, please?
Notos 18th Jan 2015, 10:02 PM edit delete reply
I can export an image and put it in the Media section above. What size would you prefer?
Guest 18th Jan 2015, 10:17 PM edit delete reply
Wow - that's really kind of you. Thanks! I have two monitors - one is 1440 x 900 (external), and the other is 1280 x 800 (standard Mac). Thank you again!
Notos 19th Jan 2015, 1:38 AM edit delete reply
You can grab the two sizes here
Feel free to flip the image or rescale it if you need to, I tried to get it to the closest scale.
Guest 20th Jan 2015, 12:50 AM edit delete reply
I'm blown away. This is so cool of you - I really appreciate it. Both work perfectly. Thanks again!

What a beautiful cover! Gives me hope. :)

Ready for the new chapter, all kinds!
Notos 18th Jan 2015, 10:08 PM edit delete reply
I'm ready to get back into the swing of things too.

Hi! Looking forward to the new chapter.

I was just setting up Patreon support for all my favourite web comic artists, but since you don't have one (hint hint!) I've dropped you a small paypal donation instead, just as an appreciation of how much I appreciate the work you put into this comic. :)
Notos 19th Jan 2015, 1:45 AM edit delete reply
Hey someonelse, thanks! Really appreciate the support.
I've looked into Patreon and I'm not sure it's right for this comic, it would feel weird implementing any sort of payment model given the context of Buying Time, plus their policy on adult content seems a little bit vague? I'll look into it again for my next venture when BT is finished though.
Xith 19th Jan 2015, 2:04 AM edit delete reply
There's actually several adult content comics that I currently support on Patreon, so Buying Time should be good. Let me know if you want more info about Patreon and how it works :)
someonelse 22nd Jan 2015, 9:51 PM edit delete reply
As Xith says, Patreon seems to be used for plenty of very Adult works, so I don't think you'd have any problem on that score. The nice thing with Patreon is you don't actually have to give anything to backers that non-backers wouldn't get - some of the campaigns I've pledged to just have milestone goals for things to enhance about the public comic if there's enough total funds coming in. Hell, I'd give just as a thank you for the effort, and people might find it a more convenient way to donate.

Maybe you could somehow give the pledges an in-universe twist, like we were buying or spending DLC somehow, not sure quite how it would work...

But obviously down to you and your circumstances whether a small but steady income of that sort would actually be helpful, or if you're happy how things are. Either way, thanks again for your great work, and I look forward to seeing how the story develops. :)
Notos 23rd Jan 2015, 3:58 AM edit delete reply
I can certainly see the benefits of it. Though I think I'm still more likely to use it when BT has wrapped and I'm ramping up for my next project, we're well past the half way point for BT now.
Xith 24th Jan 2015, 5:13 AM edit delete reply
Pfft, fine, we'll just have to donate the old fashion way :P

A new chapter for a new chapter in my life. Thank you Notos! :-)

Fantastic! One more week and then back into it :D I really can't wait.
Kecoleo 19th Jan 2015, 1:50 AM edit delete reply
I have recently found this comic and I love the aspect to "paying of socializing" its a cool... thingy... or whatever you would call it. can't wait for more!
Notos 19th Jan 2015, 1:21 PM edit delete reply
Concept? I dunno ; P
But thanks, and glad to have you aboard.
lightfoot90 19th Jan 2015, 1:52 AM edit delete reply
Yay! Very excited to see what happens next, after the great cliffhanger. The guys look so cute together!
Mark 19th Jan 2015, 10:10 AM edit delete reply
I'm not sure if this is just my PC or something else but in firefox the comic isn't displaying properly. I thought it might be flashblock or adblock or something but both of them are disabled at the moment and it's still not showing properly.
just thought I'd let you know.
Notos 19th Jan 2015, 1:20 PM edit delete reply
Hey Mark, I'm not sure what would cause that, just checked it on my end it and seems okay. Then again I'm kind of a tech idiot so not sure what to recommend other than getting the latest Flash player update.
Mark 26th Jan 2015, 12:29 AM edit delete reply
narrowed it down. looks like the flashblock addon is causing an issue even though I have buying time on it's whitelist.
justkeepondriving 19th Jan 2015, 10:21 AM edit delete reply
Love the animated sparkling night sky on this cover page ♥ It looks a bit lonely in comparison to past character-stuffed cover pages, but it's really nice. Great work Notos! Looking forward to next week!
Grall 20th Jan 2015, 11:48 AM edit delete reply
Woo! I'm looking forward to seeing what the world outside Hyperion City looks like. I'm expecting wastelands, but even that can have a quiet beauty to it.
I know others have already said this, but I love the subtle twinkling stars. :)
Notos 20th Jan 2015, 1:23 PM edit delete reply
Thanks, looking forward to depicting a change of scenery.
Guest 20th Jan 2015, 3:04 PM edit delete reply

Yay your comic is one of the things I look forward to every week.

Aww yeah! Get hype!
Man, I can't wait for chapter 6 to begin!

Can't wait to see what happens next! And can't wait for the rest of the music, either! Eeh! Ah! *fanboy-spasm*
