Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I decided to interrupt the iPod storyline for a week in order to have a fun holiday strip, but don’t worry, the conclusion of the iPod storyline will be next Friday! Coincidentally, it’s my 15th birthday on Monday, February 13th! Could I have some birthday wishes everyone?

I also have a question for you guys! I normally refer to you as “Chapel readers,” but I think we need a better name for the Chapel Chronicles community at large. I’m leaning towards the term “Chapelites,” but what are YOUR ideas? Let me know in a comment below, and don’t forget to tell me what you thought of this week’s strip!

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Kids take note: Chapel is pretty much the best kid ever, so maybe steal her idea and butter up your parents with candy and flowers on the 14th! (But don’t tell them I said that).
Well, I've been reading Chapel from the first strip to this one, and I intend to read the whole shebang and comment more as soon as I catch up to the current timeline.

Does that make me a Chapel's Faithful? I hope so. :D
DarkwingLady 11/3/13
Aww, I'm so glad! I love hearing about people reading throughout the entire back-log of comics. Thank you!
 Emma  11/7/13
 
Happy ... very, very, extremely belated birthday.
Max_Writer 10/21/12
Thank you!!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
OH MY GOD YOU HAVE THE SAME BIRTHDAY AS ME :D
rawr sheeps 5/11/12
WOW, really?
 Emma  10/8/12
 
You know, I've wrote some comics about this character I made up.... I just run out of ideas!
Miss L.S.P 2/16/12
Aw, well, it's hard to think up ideas always!
 Emma  10/8/12
 
Wow, is it just me or is 116 comments more than you've ever gotten? :)
Emily13 2/15/12
It's the most! I'm Emma's mother; she put Frank Sinatra on the radio because my father, who she never had the chance to meet, loved Frank and so do I. Which is a very sweet touch. Thank you Emma.
Marie 2/16/12
Yay! I find it cool when your mom comments! She sounds really nice too!
Miss L.S.P 2/17/12
Well. Nice to meet you, haha!
Emily13 2/17/12
Yes, it's the most!
 Emma  3/8/13
Actually with this it is 143. Woohoo!
lizzie 4/21/13
Well, now it’s 144!
Sahir. 9/29/13
 
Just 2 more days until the next comic! I can't wait! I love your comics Emma (I already said that about a million times but oh well...XD)!!!
Katherine 2/15/12
Aww, thank you!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Really nice work!
Denny 2/15/12
I'm glad you like it!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
I think my favorite names are all of them although I especially like Chapelaniacs.........
Miss L.S.P 2/15/12
Hmm...I like that one too...
 Emma  2/15/12
 
Happy Birthday, Emma! Hope this is a wonderful year for you.
Jesse & The Tutor Corps Team 2/14/12
Awww! That is so incredibly sweet of you! Thank you so much. TutorCorps has definitely made my life really special. :D

Disney Create irritates the crap out of meh.
1) They NEVER approve ANYTHING that I put up, unless it has, like, no writing on it.
2) Even if there is writing on it, it's always totally harmless and in no way, shape, or form can be interpereted pervertedly.
3) Yet they approve emo contests, dark angels, and evil people. WHY, I ASK YOU? WHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYY
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/14/12
Disney has sold it's soul to the dark one if you ask me. They have become a corporate tyrant of far too many things. they are not fair and will wring the last dime they can out of anything. they stole the whole of "Lion King" from someone else and made so much money from it. they never payed a dime to the guy who really made it. yet they crack down on ANYONE who want to make a fan work with their trade marked characters.

My Advice, wash you hands of Disney and go somewhere else. before it's too late.

(why yes, i am mad at Disney. have been for years)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/15/12
Oh dear...that's harsh...
 Emma  2/15/12
No less true Miss Emma.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/15/12
What's Disney Create? I haven't heard of it! And that sounds awful...
 Emma  2/15/12
It's a website where people can draw stuff, based off of Disney's website. It's stupid, hard to draw on and frustrating.
GRRRRRR
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/15/12
That's really tough! What a shame...
 Emma  2/15/12
I know I HATE it! I've only got one of my artworks really approved and people have viewed it, but, nobody comments or anything!
Miss L.S.P 2/15/12
 
I love Chapel's face in the last panel! Great job Emma.

♥happy valentines day♥
Ava 2/14/12
Thank you!!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Alright, Alright. you win Miss Emma, i had a dream last night. You wanted a name for your fans, and here is my possablity of one. "Chapel's faithful". why? every week we all show up all the time for we all love the chapel (and everyone who come by as well it seems).
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/14/12
Oh wow, I really like that! And I'm INCREDIBLY flattered that you had a dream about Chapel, oh my gosh!
 Emma  2/15/12
 
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Katherine 2/14/12
Holiday of love...
 Emma  3/8/13
 
HAPPY V-DAY EVERYONE!!!!
Miss L.S.P 2/14/12
Yes, happy V-day!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Happy Birthday!
jackie 2/13/12
Thank you!!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Happy birthday!!
Ali 2/13/12
Thanks!!!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
HAPPY BURTHDAY EMMA!!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/13/12
Thank you!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
Hello! I just want to wish you an early Happy Birthday and Valentine's Day! Keep up the good work! (Sorry I haven't been on here in a while... I moved back to the USA! In December I was living in Switzerland haha!) Anyway, I love your comics Emma!
Katherine 2/12/12
Maybe you could call us the Chapelators? Chapelians? Chapelors? Haha
Katherine 2/12/12
That could totally work! Man, everyone has such great ideas tonight!
2/13/12
Yeah haha! ^^
Katherine 2/13/12
Oops! Chapelators is the copyright of Harry Potter PWNS All !!! Sorry! I didn't see! :S
Katherine 2/13/12
Haha nothing's copyright me, anyone can come up with any name they want ;) It's cool that we had the same train of thought :D
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/15/12
Wow! What was Switzerland like? How long did you live there?
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
It's really awesome with the skiing and the mountains and stuff! I lived there for 3 and a half years haha! Anyway, this is Emma's site. Shouldn't we be talking about her comics? XD (HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMMA!!! Again haha!)
Katherine 2/13/12
Thank you!!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
I think it's a bit early for naming the fans of your work Miss Emma. btw, just where are you on the top web comic ratings now?

oh yea, don't worry about making a Name for the fans, the fans in due time will name themselves. Remember "Bronies" was self made for the fans of the new "My Little Ponies" show. we'll make our own, just trust us.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/12/12
Oh yea, Happy Birthday Miss Emma!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/12/12
Hey, that's actually a little hurtful! I just intended it to be a fun little thing for everyone to think about, and so far it seems like people are enjoying it.
 Emma  2/12/12
Well, I think it's a good idea and if Emma hadn't thought of it, actually we might have never gotten to change our name. Think about it...... Chapel readers V.S Chapelites ( or whatever Emma decides to call us). I think our new name will add a little glam to it!
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
I completely agree. Emma totally deserves to name her fans, as she obviously has so many of them that are, at least for now, lacking a cute, fun nickname. It's a GREAT IDEA!!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/13/12
Totally.
Ginny Weasley fan 2/13/12
I am sorry if that hurt Miss Emma, but you wanted my thoughts on it and i do not want to lie. I also never said i was opposed to it either. I just feel it might be a bit early for it. I also want your web comic to grow more to fit any name that will stick.

A little constructive criticism once in awhile will do more to help than a never ending stream of "Yes men (or women)"
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/13/12
 
I love the whole comic! Especially in the last panel, it is bursting with color, and I absolutely LOVE IT!!!!
Blarber123 2/12/12
Thanks so much, I love bright colors!
 Emma  2/15/12
 
Happy Birthday Emma! I adore Chapel and Rupert in their costumes! Especially Rupert, since he's such a cute little hedgehog.
Andrea 2/12/12
Isn't he just adorable?
 Emma  2/15/12
 
Hey there. I've been reading your comics for a while and I thought I'd finally comment. I really like your comic. Most of the comics I read are really dramatic and dark. It's always good to read Chapel Chronicles. It's a nice break from all the gore. Haha.

Anyways as for your demonym... What about: Chappies? Or Chapanese? :P

Keep up the awesome work.

P.s. Maybe Chapel can make a guest appearance in my webcomic once I get it off the ground. Haha
Akuji Kun 2/12/12
Oh, I'm very flattered you chose to comment, and I'm glad you like Chapel so much! Chappies is a good idea...And it would be AMAZING if Chapel could appear in your webcomic!
 Emma  2/15/12
 
Happy B-day Emma!!!! you're sooo nice and your comics are really cool! Keep it UP!!!! :)
Miss L.S.P 2/12/12
Fill in the blanks:
E_ _ _ _ _ _ C_a_ _ l = A_ _ _ O_ E !!!!
Miss L.S.P 2/12/12
Oops! After the three blank spaces there is a space So, all together there is four words in all! Can you guess what it says!?!
Miss L.S.P 2/12/12
is this hang man?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/12/12
No, just a fun thing..........
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
ah, ok.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/13/12
I think it might be: Emma and Chapel = Awesome!!!!
Katherine 2/12/12
YAY!!!! You got it!!!!
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
she got it in one go too! nice!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/13/12
Haha thanks everyone! (\(^_^)/)!!!!
Katherine 2/13/12
OMG, That is sooo cute!
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
Haha thanks! ^.^
Katherine 2/13/12
Oh my gosh thank you!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
1. Aw, Chapel's adorable in her Cupid costume.
2. Happy Birthday! Even though I don't know you, just seen your name on the BAGHS Teens list and read your stories in Stone Soup. Maybe if I actually came to the BAGHS events this would be more understandable, my wishing you a happy birthday. XD
3. I don't really like "Chapelites". Chapel Club?
Sasha 2/12/12
Whoa, you're in BAGHS? Yes please come to one of the parties! I want to meet you! Chapel Club is good, too!
 Emma  2/15/12
Yes, I'm, well, officially in BAGHS. If I come to a party, I'll be on the lookout for you!
Sasha 2/18/12
If you guys don't mind me asking, what's BAGHS?
Ginny Weasley fan 5/20/12
 
Happy early birthday! NOW the comic comes up. I'm just not used to checking every Friday. Maybe I was a bit too anxious for the next comic to come out, so I was a little early!
Blarber123 2/12/12
When I posted this one, I used to post them late in the day...now I post it at Midnight!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
chapelites isn't bad... chapostles? the chapel core / chapel corps? anyway, whichever term you settle on, i declare myself the first rupertarian! 8-D

happy birthday!
peter 2/11/12
I like that! And thanks for your name suggestions and birthday wishes!
 Emma  2/11/12
 
Happy birthday Emma!
Rupert doesn't look to happy in his costume judging by the second panel....
Also, it's my 3/4 birthday on February 13, but that's less important.
Ginny Weasley fan 2/11/12
Oh, Rupert's fine in his costume! In the second panel, he's just determined to help Chapel carry out the surprise! And yeah, a 3/4 is way less important than an normal birthday :P
 Emma  2/11/12
Even though I still think it's kind of cool that our birthdays are both on the 13th. (mine is in may.)
Ginny Weasley fan 2/12/12
It's my 3/4 birthday today!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/12/12
Wait, what???? May 12??? Do I know you????
Ginny Weasley fan 2/13/12
I don't know... Do you?
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/13/12
Wait, what in the world?
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
Maybe you DO know me! I only know one person with a May 13th birthday though...and he's a boy.
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/14/12
 
Yeah, I like Chapelites....
Miss L.S.P 2/11/12
Yay, I'm glad! I was thinking we needed an official name...
 Emma  2/11/12
are you thinking of a paid subcription fan club extra Miss Emma? it's too early for that is what i am thinking.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/12/12
Taxil, I would NEVER charge anyone for any Chapel content. I don't even put ads up on the site or ask for donations like most people. I just thought it might be fun to come up with a name for our little readership, that's all!
 Emma  2/12/12
YES!!!! I totally agree that it would be a nice thing to do!
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
You know, I mean the name part........
Miss L.S.P 2/13/12
THAT is good to know! Thank you for clarifying that. ^^
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/13/12
 
Only 14? Wow. You have officially accomplished more than most people at 30. Congratz on winning your birthday as well(Scott Pilgrim ref). I caught your webcomic and found it interesting and amusing. To many more years of Chapel!
Renadt 2/11/12
Oh wow, what an AMAZINGLY sweet message! That's a really heartwarming comment and thank you for the sweet birthday wishes! Just curious, how did you find my comic? Anyway, thanks for stopping by and please keep reading! :D
 Emma  2/11/12
Think that is mind blowing so far Miss Emma? in a year or so, you'll be allowed to DRIVE A CAR for the first time in your life! better save you money for paying for that first car.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/12/12
Yes, I do realize that. But I don't see any need for me to buy my own car just yet.
 Emma  2/12/12
to tell a little story, i worked every odd job i could to earn a dollar. (my family was once far from wealthy) it was indeed a well used car. It wasn't a real pretty car. it wasn't really fast either. But i paid for it IN FULL. It felt great, and i am sure when you are ready for it, you'll get to feel that too.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/13/12
Although I've had times in the past I could afford to buy a car (I'm 19 next week) I still haven't and I don't even have my license. I'm doing just fine without it and have no urge to get one. No need to get a car yet, Emma, unless you want one! :P
Kiwifruit 2/15/12
 
Happy Birthday! Oh, and you might want to update the copyright date on the bottom.
2/11/12
Ahh, thank you! We updated the copyright on the comic, but not on the site. Thanks for letting us know! :D
 Emma  2/11/12
 
Happy Birthday Emma!! ^_^
Rae 2/11/12
Thank you so much! It's weird to think this is my last weekend of being 14!
 Emma  2/11/12
 
WHAT?!?! Happy Birthday, Emma! And Happy Valentine's!
You should call us the Chapelators XD
You are SO COOL I can see how much you put into this comic. It paid off ;)
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/11/12
Wow, I kinda like Chapelators! Between that and Chapelites...maybe we'll have to have a poll our something. AND THANK YOU SO MUCH! I had a lot of fun with this comic, but dang, my neck sure hurt afterwards from inking all those details! :D
 Emma  2/11/12
Yay! I love Chapel so much...I check, like, hourly on Fridays for your weekly comic, I love it so much <3
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/11/12
Oh wow, what a wonderful thing to hear! That's so sweet! And there's no need to check hourly, just know that the comic is updated around 4 to 5 pm pacific time :)
 Emma  2/11/12
Haha...I don't go by Pacific time, so I just check every so often, CUZ IT'S ALWAYS WORTH THE WAIT!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/11/12
THANK YOU SO MUCH! That's so sweet!
 Emma  2/11/12
 
Aw, how sweet! Chapel must have spent a lot of time on that. :)

Hmm, I don't really have any plans for Valentine's Day. Today I went to our first homeschool group, which was Valentine's party (not much to it so far, but it was held at my best friend's place so at least she was there). My sister's a teacher, so she'll probably bring home leftovers from her class's party... time for us all to stuff ourselves. LOL

Chapelites-- that's cool! I like that name. :D
Emily13 2/11/12
Oh my gosh, you're homeschooled too? YES! Homeschoolers unite! I normally don't celebrate Valentine's Day at all because my birthday's the day before, so I don't really care about V-Day too much. XD
 Emma  2/11/12
I was homeschooled til I was 13, can I unite with you guys? :P

And a late Happy Birthday! :D

(Also: Hee! Rupert! <3333)
kiwifruit 2/11/12
Oh pssh, that will teach me not to read comments properly...still early Happy Birthday!! xD
kiwifruit 2/11/12
Thank you! And it's really cool that you were homeschooled as well... The three of us can be the Chapel homeschooling trio!
 Emma  2/11/12
Haha, yes!

Ooh, I came up with another name a a while ago: Chapelaniacs. :P
Emily13 2/12/12
Oh! I love that one too! Chapelaniacs......
Miss L.S.P 2/12/12
Ooh, Chapelaniacs is nice as well...So many options! :D
 Emma  2/12/12
OOH I like that too!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/15/12
And happy late birthday!
Emily13 2/15/12
lucky kids all of you. I did not have the option of home school. I know I was worse for it. Thankfully, i learned much more out in the real world than i ever did in public school.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/12/12
Yup. To be honest I don't really like it that much, but I deal with it. :) How do you guys like it?
Emily13 2/11/12
 
Aww...... how sweet! Happy Valentine's Day Emma and to everybody else!
Miss L.S.P 2/11/12
Thanks! You too!
 Emma  2/11/12
 
happy birthday hugs regarding my use of characters I'm thinking having chapel be a bit older and have her riding out of the tardis on a giant rupert
Yarin 2/11/12
That would be AMAZING! Please give me the link to your webcomic so I can see it :D
 Emma  2/11/12
oh it probably won't be ready for years :( i'm not a good artist like you and i'm using another person and he's being flaky
Yarin 2/11/12
maybe have her wearing battle armor and a crazy hat
Yarin 2/11/12
That would be cool too! And it's a shame that your artist is all flaky
 Emma  2/11/12
i know i have this great idea that spans multiple fictional universes and has like transformers and power rangers and super heroes and any good guy you can think of cause the bad guy is gonna destroy all of reality including the fictional ones
Yarin 2/13/12
Might wanna rethink that a little. Using someone else's canon means you can't go and make cash from it later. An alternative could be to get into "Creative Commons" characters, people from books and films to which the copyrights have expired like the comic series League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.... (you might be much to young to read it)

Mind you what am I talking about, I love fan fiction!

oh and Emma... you could just call us "chaps" "Hello chaps! How're things goin' chaps! Jolly good yes?" see? it works nicely. Some of the other suggestions are wordy and hard to say, you need something that is easier to say then "Dear Readers" which is the default (and extremely classy) term to use.
Stikibunn 2/14/12
I'm 24 i love the loEG series also i dont want to make money just get my ideas out there and maybe get a tvtropes page for my work
Yarin 2/16/12
Wow...cu-ute!!!! Does Chapel have a boyfriend, or at least a crush?
Me! 2/26/12
and emma i got another artist so i should working faster
Yarin 2/16/12
also modest medusa rocks to
Yarin 2/11/12
Doesn't it? Have you bought the book?
 Emma  2/11/12
no i haven't bought the book I'm cheap
Yarin 2/13/12
 
Expected Parent Arrival Time: 20 seconds. Costumes on. Frank Sinatra go.Chapel What are you doing? Happy Valentines Day Mom and Dad.
