Aggie's sister has appeared before in this comic, way, way, WAY the hell back in Chapter 1. She had no lines there so I'm not expecting anyone to actually recall her, but I figured I would include a "Fun Fact." She doesn't quite look the same as my style has progressed, I'd like to think, between 2009 and now, despite the fact that only about eight months have passed thus far in the comic.
Eight months have passed thus far in the comic.
Eight months... have passed...
You guys, this is kind of a wake-up call for me. Because, like, this story is supposed to span quite a hefty sum of years. Not all of them are to be as slow-paced, of course, because once we get into the future we'll do some jumping around and such, but like, right now I'm moving at a pace of four comic months a year. Kind of not ideal.
I gotta get my ass in gear. I've been sitting on upcoming plot points so long they've practically hatched and spoiled. Okay. Okay. Just gonna have to apply myself. Just apply myself like a topical lotion.
P.S. I HAVE ELEVEN FANS THIS IS SO AWESOME!! YOU GUYS RULE! I was planning to make YES MANY FANS filler art, but I figure you guys would rather me spend my drawing time on the actual comic given my sporadic updates. I agree with this notion myself. Since we are all in agreement, I will see you at the next zoning board meeting to discuss the supermarket parking lot.
WHY DON'T YOU HAVE MORE FANS. That is what we should discuss at the meeting after next.
Okay, I don't know what happened--I got distracted from finishing your archive. But when I don't have 25 hours of homework a day I'll be getting comfy and reading this. I will then advertise it to all my friends, family, and pets.
@Shoprocks: The fan count rises bit by bit, like a little man climbing a big mountain XD And I am so glad that you are enjoying reading it. Heck, we all need to take breaks from time to time, and homework is killing me now too. Hopefully both of us will prevail in the face of school!
Awww, I feel similarly... I have Cop Story planned out for years and spent over a year on the first part of the FIRST CASE. Sometimes I can't sleep at night thinking of how much I have to do. But I'm figuring out how to be in control of it and all, it just takes time.
Also it's really reassuring to read another long story with a big cast because a lot of script-writing books tell to centre the plot on a single character and it's not something I find fun but almost nobody else seems to think the same way...
@Oly-RRR: *high five* I've written stories with a smaller cast before, but whenever I write one main character it invariably becomes somewhat of a self-insert. Better to have eight+ different folks that are different degrees of self-insert XP Like you said, it's more fun to have a bigger cast. I get that that means I devote less time to each character but it's a price I'm willing to pay for my own amusement :P
Oh boy. Let's see- I'm now at late July/August of 1918... so nine months have past. Hooray! In the past 3 years I've moved the story ahead a whole month o_o
@mitchellbravo: Haha, that's a good point about degrees of self-inserts - I like to think a whole group of them means attentive writing. When I develop characters I try to think both where we are very different and what we have in common, and I end up relating to them so much that they all feel like alter-egos of sorts. ...a somewhat terrifying alter-egos in some cases. :D
@Oly-RRR: Aaaah I do the same thing!!! Hahaha I can't help it, it's just the easiest way to get to know a character! See where you agree, see where (and how sharply) you diverge....
