To any of my dear subbers who may stumble onto this thread ... I will not be able to update the page today, on Friday, as I am supposed to. Any subbers who read last week's author comments know that today my grandmother went in for major surgery--the prep for that as well as the event itself this week has, OBviously, taken priority over this week's update.
The time I enjoy a romantic relationship the most in any movie, show, or comic is when the story isn't necessarily ABOUT the romance........ but the romance happens within the actual story haha.
I feel like a lot of these tropes everyone is talkin about (that I agree with) happen when the whole focus of the movie (or whatever it is) is about the romance. LOL I'm not a fan of the genre-- of course there are exceptions-- because they are indeed so predictable.
When there is a different conflict going on, other than the conflict in the relationship.. that draws two characters together in a more natural way, or makes the conflict IN their relationship more believable, I get MUCH more excited about the ship. And I do get excited about ships! (Ask anyone who has characters that I ship LOL)
I havta say tho one of my favorite books ever is Wuthering Heights and I'd say that's considered a romance. Sorta-- I mean the whole book is about the relationship of the main characters. They are obSESSED with each other and that love kind of destroys both of them X"D (inspires me a lot >__>).
I recommend it :3
BluRaven C. Houvener:No problem! You're seriously keeping my faith going here. This is the second art trade i've been in in the last months time as you know, where i've submitted my piece but haven't gotten mine. And I'm very mellow and laid back haha. If the person reaches out to me and tells me whats up I'm cool. I definitely get that life gets in the way of our art sometimes haha. I'm sure plenty of folks can relate haha!
Aw Dude-- I'm sorry. I know exactly how that feels, it's happened to me a couple of times too (hence why I can be an overbearing host sometimes LOL >__>). BUT! I think you're gonna be happy ;3
To be fair one 1 out of 4 of these people did drop out formerly before the exchange was supposed to go live, but there was just a lil' mishap with the reassigning of the comic. But it will all be fixed!
@ The Letter M---- yes: The Restless Dead, Just Another Day, Cryptida, and The Gingerbread Man Chronicles. I only list them here so you know I know about ya.you're not forgotten! Just need a little extra time <3
Yesss everyone did a great job! I was super impressed by some of these <3333
There are four that are still missing, but the solution is underway and very reliable--- my apologies to the four people who didn't get to partake at this particular time, but it'll be made up to ya I promise! ;)
ON MY HONOR!
Working to get this exchange up and running by the end of the day, everyone! What's been posted looks GREAT so far! I'll repost the pieces to the site but if you haven't shared your piece yet please try and refrain from doing so until further notice! ^__^
Cover image is up!
Go ahead and give a watch as the submissions will begin uploading in a little bit!
Duh, I have dreams... about bugs... [spoiler]living inside my own body. Last time I think I was dealing these orange ants spouring out of my genitals. It was also one of those hi-res dreams... [/spoiler]
*SPITS COCONUT WATER OUT ALL OVER COMPUTER* OMG XDDD
[spoiler]I read somewhere that dreams like this stem from an ongoing frustration in someone's life..
Just kiddinng I didn't read that anywhere I made it up but, all the same, thank you for sharing this with me XDDDD (and everyone XDD)[/spoiler]
I think to keep this a healthy discussion we should do two things:
Avoid phrases like "comics on this site..."
and Avoid specifics
Keep things general-- less of a chance for someone to feel called out and get their feelings hurt ^__^
PS-- Lolol I totally misread the title of a thread. What puts me off FIRST when reading a comic is if I can't figure out the paneling and the message of the page is all jumbled up because of it.
But then again if I can't even read a thread title correctly MAYBE THERE IS NO HOPE FOR ME! GO HOME, SERPY X"DD
Tbh tho I don't let myself get put off by ANYthing initially because I like to give things a bit of a chance before I declare yay or nay X"D.
I think porn is the only thing that'd make me go "OO OH NO *Close tab*" XDDD
Someone on tapastic told me they weren't going to read my comic because the art in the beginning "isn't as good as the popular comics"..... but then she said she did anyway and was glad because she loved it! LOL
So I like to show the same courtesy that I would like to receive and give things a proper chance X"DDD
