I can't believe I'm actually doing this, but you asked for it, so here it is: from now on, people who support The Simulacrum with $5+ on Patreon will receive chapters one week early. I will try to come up with some other benefits for the different tiers, but between work and health issues, that's all I can do for now. This announcement will be removed on the 22nd, when the next chapter will come out on schedule.
That's all. Now please excuse me as I continue to scream into this pillow as I feel my principles crumbling. Cheers!
