I try to respond to comments when I can because I love comments, but also I have written under every post that comments are appreciated, to show even if I don't respond, I love getting comments. I can't respond to everything, for example if someone comments just "cool." there's nothing I can really say there. But if someone has a theory or a question or makes an interesting comment, I'll typically respond.

So I'd say, if you're worried about discouraging people from commenting, you should put in the author comments that you want and appreciate comments.

Just thought of another couple of book movies
I was a huge Anne Rice fan when I was a teenager, and it started with Interview With the Vampire, I loved the movie, and loved the book even more. And one of the main reasons the movie is so good is because Anne Rice wrote the screenplay.
Contrastingly, one of her sequel books wasn't so lucky. Queen of the Damned was an INCREDIBLY interesting and engaging book, but the movie made a whole bunch of really dumb nonsensical choices like making the wrong characters the hero and flat out erasing the actual hero, which also made no sense because the whole issue with killing the Queen was it would kill all the vampires too, the book solved this issue in a sensible way but the movie just threw that in the garbage for an ending that didn't remotely explain why the vampires didn't all die. Then there was erasing the whole origin story of vampires, not showing the Queen's crazy obsession with empowering women and enslaving men, not showing the fact that the queen was casually killing off a shit ton of vampires that she felt weren't worthy of the gift of vampirism, forcing a character to be a romantic interest when there was NO implied romance between the characters in the book, and overall just relying on making the movie a bondage heavy edge-fest that tried too hard to be sexy but nothing else.

The Witches is a great book, and the original movie made for it was also pretty good in its own right, but the new version of The Witches is just so cringey....

Watership down has been made as a movie, an animated series, and most recently a miniseries on Netflix. I like the book the most, but all adaptations of it are enjoyable for different reasons in my opinion. There are choices in all 3 adaptations that were not that great, like the animated series changed one of the rabbits from male to female when it was supposed to be a huge plot point that they didn't HAVE females and needed to take big risks to get them. Also the animated series went in a totally different direction after a couple seasons, and it's not exactly one I'm fond of-- it was interesting at first but the finale relied on MAGIC for a solution, something that was not established as an existing thing throughout the entire series and definitely wasn't a thing in the books. They gave it the ol' Secret of Nimh treatment where, when originally the solution was hard work and determination, they instead threw it all away so it could be insta solved by magic. Secret of Nimh was good on its own as a movie but when compared to the book it's kind of disappointing. Back to Watership Down, the original movie I think is the best of the 3 adaptations because it's the most accurate, but it leaves out some details that I wish could have been shown-- like for example Woundwart's past. The miniseries tried to show Woundwart's past, but they screwed it up completely, showing his issue had to do with him panicking and being unable to warn his fellow rabbits about a fox. In the book, he was basically orphaned because of a weasel, and a little human girl found him and tried to raise him, which gave him a deep seeded hatred for humans and anything considered an enemy to rabbits, and it made him become overprotective and disregard quality of life for the promise of safety from humans and other animals. The other issue with the original movie is they showed a rabbit being snatched up by a predator while the rabbits were on their journey to the down, which in the book did not happen because it makes them believe they are blessed since none of them died and also makes them more willing to do crazy shit like raid a farm because they assume nothing bad will happen to them.

Oh a case manager is basically a therapist who also tries to find you references and connections to the things you need. At least, that's what it means here in Oregon, it might be called something else in other places.

Anyways don't feel bad about quitting, a LOT of people are quitting their jobs right now because people are just fed up at this point and often find they can do better off without the job. There's been a huge influx of people quitting and a lot of companies are too dumb to understand why, but hopefully if this trend keeps up, something will be changed.

There's no reason a grocery store chain can't pay their workers a higher wage, they make a lot of money and Costco has proved that it's possible to treat and pay your workers well, which causes significantly less people to quit. Now if other companies would just get the memo...

From what I've learned, if you want a job you like, you have to dig for the more obscure jobs that are out there, because the typical jobs are the shitty ones that everyone just settles for rather than finding something they are passionate about. If people can make a living off of DMing for tabletop games, there's bound to be something out there that can work.
I had to go through a case manager myself in order to find a job I was suited for, and now I have all the training, I just need to learn how to drive next which is what I'm working on right now. Personally, I want to create my own artworks, I don't enjoy living off commissions because I never have any free time because of it, but I've had to do it for over 10 years now to get by. (No joke, at the current moment I have a queue of 90 commissions I have to do)
I'm not totally sure how to go about looking for the more obscure, specialized jobs, but I imagine there's something like a reddit out there with people who can give suggestions.

Boy I had a complicated experience.
First of all, since I was a little kid, I'd really enjoy 'tricking' people in to thinking I was a boy, and really liked people using male pronouns with me. I didn't really understand what trans was because I was raised in a christian household with a homophobic church. But as I got older, I noticed not only did I like being thought of as a guy, but I was also finding myself attracted to guys and girls. It wasn't until highshool that I started taking things more seriously, and started asking all the teachers and students to call me 'Kevin' (I don't use that name any more because it was attached to an abusive friendship) And I was so happy during that time, I felt really comfortable and validated, but I had this one friend who became a boyfriend later who managed to convince me I was just pretending to hide from trauma, so I gave up the name and tried to be 'myself', which felt like uncomfortable crossdressing honestly. I never liked people looking at me like I was some kind of object, and it felt that way whenever I dressed up girly. This boyfriend ended up being really emotionally abusive (like threatening suicide whenever I didn't do what he wanted) so I eventually broke up with him.
By that point, I didn't know who or what I was any more, so I tried identifying as androgynous or genderfluid to see how that felt. It was a little comfier, but I still didn't feel right. It wasn't until I started a tumblr character ask blog that I adopted a male persona, because I wanted to keep my true identity a secret. And I just felt so good and natural in that role, where I called myself Jack. And tumblr better informed me what being trans meant. See, I was already pretty well known for playing a female role in a radio play, and had a decent following on my art account, but I didn't want people making assumptions based on that, which meant I needed to start fresh in a safe place where no one would know what my biological sex was. Eventually, I was able to get to a point where I was comfortable enough to reveal who I was while also coming out as a trans pansexual. I did it over a livestream, and about 600 people showed up for it so it was a pretty big deal. And people were incredibly understanding and accepting, so I could really be myself on any of my accounts. I've been really happy ever since. I even came out to my mom, and was pleasantly surprised to know, while she may have been confused, she still wanted to support me, and she's been making an effort since then to use male pronouns and my new name rather than my given name. My most recent achievement with my mom was when we were christmas shopping, and she kept referring to me as her son to other people, which was a big step since before she used 'child' so as not to refer to a gender at all.
It's probably not the greatest thing to say, but I never was able to come out to my dad since he made threats a long time ago when I was 12 and suggested that I wanted to be a boy, and he died just as I was starting to transition so he never heard my voice drop and never got to see me growing a beard. He wasn't the best person and I didn't really feel much when he died other than the disappointment that he'd never admit he was in the wrong.

I've been on T for at least 5 years now, and a few years back I got top surgery so I'm no longer having to deal with horrible dysphoria any time I felt my old boobs move. I'm now trying to get set up for a hysterectomy but Covid is making it really difficult to get in.

Made my first shepherd's pie and also my first mashed potatoes, came out delicious. Used turkey for the meat and didn't have peas or carrots because the roomie doesn't like them.

Oh woops I missed the update for this! It's super cute! I like how round and fluffy Tanta looks, and the eye style is quite unique and really shows off your style! I'm going to go ahead and add this to the comic queue so it'll be ready when the hiatus happens, thank you very much!

My Magic Grandpa was definitely inspired by Supernatural, Gravity Falls, Doctor Who, Hilda, and Rick and Morty

mitchellbravo:I don't remember this, was this after the site "revamped" in 2019? The only crackdown I remember prior to me leaving the site was removing comics that featured, like, underage content

Oh man though now I'm vaguely remembering that erotica wasn't allowed, was it? Like you could have pages with a sex scene but comics that were entir3ly pornigraphic in intent were not allowed as per the tos????

It's qmazing how I spent 10 yrs there and have functionally forgotten 9.8 of them


As someone who had an erotic yaoi superhero parody comic back in the early days of Smackjeeves, I can safely say they cracked down on it after a couple of years. I remember having to go to all the NSFW pages and replacing them with "FOLLOW THIS LINK" to the actual pages hosted on a different site.
