PACEM: I love YOUUUUUUUU! I don't even care who ya are! Bring it in! -- Or, actually don't. My bad, just remembered I'm not s'posed to hug random strangers.
VIKTOR: Wh- hah... seriously? S-sorry, are you joking?
NEASAN: Aw. Cheers, love. Everyone does, really. Call me.
TOXIC: No. You don't. You're drunk. Leave.
PETRA: Oh my god? Thanks? You have officially just made my entire week. Hashtag blessed.
THEO: Thank you so much! I love you too! So much! I love humanity! Hashtag blessed!
and now the dump of assorted characters nobody here would know but it's a slow day
HENRY: Aw, q-quit bein' a fool. J-jeez.
DART: I'm... more confused as to why than grateful. I mean, still grateful, but like- you know me, right?
ROSE: I see a sincerity in thine eyes, a warmth in thy heart. I take thee at thy word, so thou hast my thanks. And I freely say, my heart beats for thee the way it does for all those good at heart. I wish you well. [drinks a capri sun]
HALVOT: And I love you, screaming, adoring fan. Remember to drink your milk so you can be as powerful as me! [FLEXES AND VANISHES IN A FLASH OF MAGIC]
CODDA: No, no, Halvot is over there.
SETSE: Do you love me? Or do you love the idea of me?
VETIKA: That is extremely sweet but I am kind of losing my mind right now please hold.
ANA: Cheers bro I'll drink to that. [drinks a capri sun]
FLINT: Oh! That's... I don't know how to deal with that. I'm supposed to say "I love you" back, right? Or is it "I love you too?" Sorry, I'm not sure. Hang on. I'll get back to you.
BARB: I love you toooo! God, you're like, seriously my best friend right now!
CARNIVAL: Please don't pick me up and squeeze me.
a few months ago i had some stupid lady in a van with her kids in the back come within inches of running me down as i was crossing the road (IN A CROSSWALK WHERE I HAD THE RIGHT OF WAY) because she was texting on her phone
i could have died and children could have been traumatized because some broad had to type "AND THEY WERE ROOMMATES" into her phone
the prologue of lucid spring was 49 pages and the first chapter was 65, but now that we're getting into it i'm hoping to keep chapters floating around 25-30. the second chapter, The Start of Something, should hopefully be pretty short.
this is also partly because i've been really trying to streamline the story of lucid spring in my head lately and cut out more of the fluff. that might make the pacing of the prologue and first chapter feel a little awkward in comparison, but ah well. i've got to get this story out somehow.
i agree that the most determined of shippers can't really be stopped by any sort of compliance to canon, but i will say that the orientations of the three adult main characters of my comic align in such a way that they're impossible to canonically ship without it being unrequited and that's only in toxic's case.
(the fourth main character is a child and if you ship any adults with a child then you're kind of beyond any reasonable hope of decency to begin with.)
there's going to be a lot of platonic bonding in lucid spring and i'm hoping the fact that literally none of them are compatible will deter people from worrying about which ship is going to be canon.
we're happy to have you here nutty. bad eggs seem to crop up here from time to time, but a lot of the people here are generally passionate and compassionate and usually aren't into it. i'm glad you're happy here so far.
just seems to be the same way many people deal with conflict but on a marginally larger scale. conflict, shock, attempt to defuse with humor, addressing the conflict when things are more emotionally steady.
how is the corporate takeover of pride in any way related to wanting to separate bi and trans people from gay people lmao.
this post complains about corporations, which is valid, but your title and your last attempt at making this post like 2 hours ago seems more about complaining that the LGBT community is about more than just gays and lesbians? it doesn't check out.
