The tiny injury-repair bots have gotten their share of daaaw cute comments...

Well, the protagonist as well as some other characters and probably the cat too have been called cute, occasionally, but in general it doesn't happen very often.

I'm pretty guilty the other way around though, when seeing something or someone cute in somebody else's comic, I very often go daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw ;)

Hmmm back from my vacation, checking out this thread...

I'm not sure how many are still following it at this point, I even have the impression there's some automated 'unsubscribe to thread' function going on, so that people don't get notified about new posts anymore D:, but anyways -

Just in order to round up things, here's my image, the final one in the series, what the character eventually ended up as ;D

Theta Sigma:I recall Alfred Hitchcock describing a hypothetical film scene where two characters are sitting down at a table and talking about trivial matters, but there's a bomb hidden under it! By showing the audience the bomb before the characters know about it, you'd create a massive amount of suspense and frustration as the characters continue talking about trivial matters even when faced with certain doom. If on the other hand, you left the bomb as a surprise, it'd be a fairly typical scene with a sudden bang at the end.

That makes me think of the famous opening scene of "Touch of Evil", only that the bomb wasn't under a table but in a car, a couple slowly driving along in the city, the music suggests everything is just fine and dandy...

PMd you the image, it's the very last one, I think it's better to show it after we've seen the other ones.

Here are two, quite the opposites-

Odo the Cat
..drifting in space. It's just so daaaaaaw. And so funny.

Super Cat
..super at failing, and not really "daaaaaaw"...

I think he looks creepy as in the uncanny-valley type of creepy. The face is human like, but not *quite* human, something is off, and that translates into creepy for me. I don't mean the colors or patterns, but something with the expression, caused by the lacking eye and that (toothless?) "smile".

But creepy as in dangerous or villainous - I can't tell, I think that depends on how he acts. The visual otherness may make him feel like potentially dangerous though, as we don't know anything about him, he could be a totally nice and friendly fellow, but he could also be the quite opposite ;)

Yes I use a whole lot of those filler words - "uhm", "uuuhm..", "err", "eerrrrr", "...", ".........", to make character speech more natural, but sometimes I worry that I overdo it o.O


"Soft magic", Technobabble, Reed Richards is Useless.. Yes, vagueness or lack of consistency can feel like ass pulls, or result in wrong expectations or even complete confusion. There could be a way around it though, when the limitations (such as, X only works in situation Y but not in Z) are presented in advance, so that it doesn't feel like random or totally out of the blue.


Cooke:@ Miaubol: It's worth a watch or two, or three!

There is one really inventive scene where two characters a talking and midway just abruptly start talking about a completely different topic with no context given. The first time I watched it I was like "huh!" But then next time I realised that you're watching a time change event in the past that is having the knock on effects in real time. But yeah, I still don't fully understand it either.

Checked out some more descriptions, looks like it's a really cool riddle, confusing at first but then things start to fall into place.

And speaking of such, "riddle-movies" and time travel, I can really recommend Donnie Darko :D

ProfEtheric:I have at least one reader who refuses to follow any links in my author's notes because they consider them spoilers (even when they're just links back to earlier pages). If someone is intent on figuring it out for themselves will go to any lengths to do so. :)

I think I figured out how to do it-

Yes, my concern is indeed potential spoilers, or something very similar, which could ruin the fun. I'll have to differ between the things really necessary or useful to remember for following the story (and which I would link to, as 'relevant earlier pages'), and the things which are rather like "easter eggs", not necessary for the main storyline, but they add depth, the little extras to discover on your own ;)

snuffysam:All of those are good. I also would recommend a summary page, which not only keeps people from forgetting events, but could help readers who don't like binging through an archive jump in without being confused.

Yes, I'm thinking of putting such a page in the extra files, with a big spoiler warning.


snuffysam:One thing I've found keeps me from forgetting the events of a comic is update schedule. If a comic updates once per month, I'm less likely to remember the events than a comic that updates twice a week- even if the event in question took place in a page two months ago in both cases.

Definitely. My gut feeling is at least once a week. If updates gets less than that, it may be better (for long-term story comics) to take a pause, build up buffer and then return with the once a week schedule ..?


snuffysam:Another thing (which might be unrealistic to ask), is to make your work... unforgettable? For example, one comic I'm subscribed to is in black and white, has a TINY bit of same-face/same-body syndrome, and everyone dresses in similar outfits too. Because of this, I can't for the life of me remember a SINGLE character's name. So yeah, try to avoid that if you can.

Visually distinct characters certainly help a lot, but also the content itself, have the main premise clear-cut so that it sticks, as well as memorable moments.


keiiii:Not a realistic solution for all of us, but: some Korean pro comics I follow have super dedicated readers who will reread the whole thing multiple times. They notice things and point them out in the comments section. There's a large number of non-dedicated readers who rely on those comments to keep up!

When such happens - that's really cool! That, and in general- that fans are discussing the comic with each other, not only with the author. Then the comic has really "made it" :D


ProfEtheric:It's a little extra work, but yes, if people know to actually read the author's notes and you're doing that, it really, really helps.

One thing I'm still not sure about though - To which extent? I don't want to overdo it, pointing out things which everyone knows anyway. And sometimes readers have rewarding moments of figuring out connections on their own, it wouldn't be the same if the solution was already written down in the author comments. ..?

dpat57:Nod nod, ditto the new Trek movies, completely wiping out The Original Series and half a dozen movies.

Uuugh, yes, I agree, time travel how it's done in Star Trek is terrible, the new ones in particular D:

..I forced myself to not think too much about it, after all I love Star Trek ;D


Seeen:Time travel is another reason I lost interest in Doctor Who. "Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Ball" just means, "it works however it needs to work for the plot," near as I can tell, and as someone who believes in writing in safeguards into a story to protect against bad writing and dues ex machinae, that doesn't sit all that well with me.

*shudders*
Yes, this is the very worst way of dealing with it D:


Overall, the time travel headache often happens when there's only one timeline looping onto itself-

Someone travels back to the past and with that changes the future (the dreaded reset button), or, someone travels back to the past but the future remains unchanged (which results in a lot of neat paradoxes), or someone travels back to the past and then wobbly timey-wimey mess and nobody can tell what actually happened o.O


But yeah, sometimes the story still works so well that I can ignore the time travel horrors. Star Trek, Babylon 5, Groundhog Day, The Time Machine -

Cooke:Primer

I haven't seen this one but read this on wikipedia-

"Primer is hopelessly confusing and grows more and more byzantine as it unravels," Chuck Klosterman writes in an essay on time travel films five years later. "I've watched it seven or eight times and I still don't know what happened." He nonetheless says it is "the finest movie about time travel I've ever seen" because of its realism"


So in the end, time traveling is like all those other things which may potentially put me off, like for instance "the power of love solves everything", "the 'dark' is so scary", "elves are the better people", "damsels in distress" or "this story is soooo cool that everything is bluish" - it depends on how it's done.
