The epilogue is finally done! These are the last and final bits to the Rockets storyline. Enjoy :)

The first part is a written fanfic by RobinRocks called Mouse Made. Please check it out before proceeding to the next part! A funny story about this written part- RobinRocks actually wrote this for the originals scipt but decided to cut it out before even showing me (since it was getting too long). She didn't show me this until recently, so I was quite excited :D And decided to post this along the epilogue.

The next part is a collaboration between me and RR in making a fake magazine interview of our favorite boys, taken place one year after the storyline. Hope you like it!

And if you missed it, the full script of the doujin is here

And now it really is the end guys! Thank you so, so much for everything, again <3

An update on the print version of this doujinshi: There is a higher chance of getting this printed now, it all depends if I can get it done in time before con season or not (and how busy my real life things seems to be popping up and making my schedule fuller), but if all goes well, copies will be available late April to May. I will update this journal and post on tumblr on further notifications.

I plan on having a colored section of the printed version, so it will contain the cover illustrations, this interview, and other Rockets related drawings. Hope that will pull through as well :)

Thank you <3 <3

God, I can't even put into words how much I loved this doujinshi. Seriously, everything about it was just amazing, and gorgeous, and absolutely brilliant. The beautiful (for lack of a better word) artwork, the whole plot, the script--it was all so fantastic that I never wanted to stop reading. I would get so excited when a new chapter would come out, then sad when I was finished because I knew it would be a while before another came out. I'm sad to see this end, but I'm seriously looking forward to your next project. I'm sure it's going to be jyst as amazing. :) You have some serious talent, and I'm pretty jealous. I wish you luck with whatever you decide to do next. :)

This is absolutely precious. And I'm so thrilled that you've expanded the Rockets world so much, it's just so asagfsdaadgsfd
Amazing work as always!

This epilogue is such a great treat, and I really love the inventive idea of a magazine interview presentation. ^_^
Thanks to you and your collaborators for such an enjoyable doujinshi! ^o^

This is SPECTACULAR! I love the faux article, it's just so wonderful. It really wraps up the story nicely and adds to the atmosphere of the just-beneath-the-surface fame that the two have. You ALWAYS see these kinds of articles about break-outs in a particular field. Now I just want to go back and re-read Rockets. You two make an AMAZING team, keep it up!

God, I love your so much!!

Can I just take a moment to say how fantastic this is?

I love things done in this format, where a story's aftermath is given from an outsider perspective like an interview. The story has been wonderful the whole way through, but this was just what it needed to give it that final touch. The sketches you did and the presentation is the kind of spot-on interpretations I've come to expect from you, and I've probably come back and reread this four times today just for the hell of it. Why are your little extras always so fulfilling?

Someday I'll figure out your secret. In the meantime I'm content to eat it up.

Oh wow. This was wonderful. The artwork is amazing and the interview had me smiling and laughing the whole time. I really enjoyed this epiloge.

lThis is just fantastic!! A great closure to the story and I'm so impressed by the idea of making it a magazine spread. Awesome job! <3

A-Absolutely precious. I-I'm completely speechless, to be real honest. I'm just so happy to see this epilogue. /sobs on the floor

Cute cute cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute.
I have been awful at commenting on your art, since I've been super AWOL from the internet lately... but I've been following this closely and I adored every step along the way. And this is such a lovely - and unique! - wrap-up to a fun story. It was so sweet. I LOVE your art as usual, and making the epilogue into an interview from a magazine is so clever and imaginative!

So lovely. Thank you (to both of you!!) for sharing this. ♥ Lovely as always. I look forward to seeing what else you do in the future, as always. :)

This is too cute~

You'll be selling copies of your doujin at cons, right? RIGHT?! I met you, bought your art, and congratulated you on your work at ALA this year. Dunno if you remember me or not. :P I don't remember what I was cosplaying at the time. Um, but if you make copies and sell them at cons, how much will they be? I wanna get a copy! :D
14th-Mar-2012 09:29 am (UTC)
THIS! THIS!!! T______T
oh will you contributed the print version outside con (because I'm not from US but I really want your doujin! It's awesome! TAT )

"a movie about this guy who build a time-machine" <--- oh hakuku-san you! XD XD
14th-Mar-2012 09:46 am (UTC)
I loved this so much! These 2 are just plain adorable!!
But I'm so sad that this is the Rockets end already~ Will miss them a lot <3<3
Love all your works!!
14th-Mar-2012 10:53 am (UTC)
*o* So... awesome.
14th-Mar-2012 12:44 pm (UTC)
Words can't express just how much I love your work.
14th-Mar-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
Haku, Haku, you already got your praise out of me~ It's *beautiful*, all of it, and once more I do love Arthur in that red shirt and Alfred's pose/expression/dynamism on Page 3. It's just so *him*. I was very excited indeed about doing the magazine article so it's wonderful to see it all put together at long last! Fabulous job! <3

...I feel like we deserve a bottle of Dom Perignon after all this. Or at least some cake.
14th-Mar-2012 10:31 pm (UTC)
Oh God I think I just puked up rainbows. This was the most adorable story I have ever seen/heard/read. I don't think I stopped smiling through the entire thing. You and Robin did a spectacular job!
15th-Mar-2012 12:14 am (UTC)
Woa, I can hardly remember the first time I read you like a specific date, but as the first time I read THE long eng dou, but ohh maii, I don't regret it at all.

You've completely won me when you wrote about that awesome time machine, and even now I can barely see another dou that could won me in that way.

Congratulations, even though your first one will always have that incredible space in my loveydoveyheart, all your works impress me, you've talent dear, talent and passion, and an amazing future for sure.

You're the reason why I made a tumblr, and why I returned to usuk after a year of not tasting a single thing about them.

No matter what you decide to keep doing, I think i'm going to follow you for as long as you wish.

Thanks, and I hope you could say yes to the request I had made you in your "stumbleine", I'd be honored.

Wow, this was an incredible surprise!
The magazine like format is so cool and I think this, together with RobinRocks' fic, was an amazing way to wrap things up.
The expressions are so like them, I really liked the final notes and reflections, the character development and the art evolution are almost tangible, It's so perfect.

I really admire your work, we hardly have the opportunity to know so much about the creative process and the hard work that is put into creating pieces like these, and on top of all it was a collaboration so seeing the evolution and the way the story and the art worked and blended together was a great experience, as well as a pleasure.

Thanks a lot, I'll be definitely following any future projects there might be.

Thank you so much for the nice epilogue! This is an awesome wrap-up for the doujin and you both are awesome \o/
15th-Mar-2012 02:06 pm (UTC)
Bwahahaha, I saw what you did there xD Reference to Stumbleine and all~

Personally, I love this. It really has a magazine feel, and it's a delight to see Arthur talking in such a professional way about his job. A big contrast to Alfred, who talks so casually as if he were speaking to a buddy x'D But really, I love this as an epilogue. It's really fitting and it wraps the story so well. And it gives me a lot of hopes for these two in the future ♥

Once again, thanks for the wonderful ride ♥
15th-Mar-2012 08:34 pm (UTC)
Wow, while reading, I could totally see Lestrade going all "This. This is my division. That's perfect" with this head of him. Because the interviewer doesn't really speak in the end ... xD
Especially when they're both talking :3
Aaah, haku, your drawing is getting better everytime, I really like it *__* And "Rockets" will always stay in my heart. Beautiful writing, drawing, scenario. This doujinshi was a real pleasure to read. (:

You and RobinRocks are so amazing seriously ♥! I just finished squeeing over the fic and now this! I love how the boys were so in character throughout the whole interview and the pictures are just gorgeous. I especially loved Alfred's solo picture (hngggh :">) and the last usuk one but bluhbluhbluh everything is gorgeous ♥. Amazing job, both of you!

These dorks! I saw the little howdy America did and I just loved this whole thing even more!

This is amazing! Thanks for the epilogue and thanks for the whole doujin! <3
