#webcomics are wild
I learned the lesson on the internet very fast and very young that when people talk up a webcomic, there’s a very good chance it’s the literal most putrid piece of media on planet earth. Love and light

Hallo, local digital artist and averno fan here.
I caught up on the wild ones webcomic, and I'm lost now. Like, i know only a few parts have come out, but the few that have don't flow together? The storyline is difficult to follow atm.
(Also, the line art for the black person is indistinguishable from their skin color, making them look like a solid color)
Also the text is frustratingly hard to read, i get wanting aesthetics and fancy placements, but in return you are sacrificing readability.
I hope to see some improvements and I'm excited for future installments!
obligatory “i mod the tumblr and i have literally no say in what happens for the wild ones webcomic” and “please do not send hate to odinsbird for having valid criticisms, as everyone is entitled to their own opinion”
wild ones is a little wonky, i’d agree with you on that! it’s important to note that different chapters are in different moments in time (as indicated by the chapter titles of “kids” vs “teen) and that it’s very abstract. as far as i know, upcoming chapters are finished (just waiting to be uploaded) and i have no idea what they look like, so I cannot promise anything, immediate or otherwise. i can pass on Your Big Thoughts, and i’m also very excited. i love orchi’s art :)

Top 5: graphic novels or webcomics?
1- fma, of course
2- aria, or i think some volumes we also called aqua? a very sweet soft scifi comic
3- miamaska and trial of the sun (both iirc have some gore)
unfortunately on (i think) permanent hiatus due to the author not being able to make a living and work on the comics <:C but still worth reading! he has a tumblr with some great tutorials, @jeinu great world building and the art get crazy good
4- waterworks (has some problematic stuff, a few uses of the r and m word ect, its old af)
i dont know if its still running, i lost track of it a few years ago cos it is so slow to update and got a bit too wild at the same time to understand, but it is an original content homestuck fan comic. it mostly just uses the format and a similar mechanics as some homestuck stuff. a great and inventive story, and some really cool music and animation for basically stick style art!
5- gunnerkrigg the one ive never dropped cos it updates 3x a week like clockwork! tom siddle is op
while i hate how the thing with her dad is being written, its overal a great, though now very long, story. and recently had a big reveal that was planned from the start? how far ahead do people write webcomics before starting? how long does it take to come up with ideas? idk im just an egg

On Lord Hawthorne
A lot of what makes Lavender Jack special to me is the way it’s so masterfully able to create engaging, modern material out of it’s influences, and it’s creation of a genuinely timeless pulp icon that I think should serve as the ideal baseline for any and all creators who want to create stories based on pulp characters, old and new alike, in the future.
As I make my way through Season 2 and eagerly await Season 3 I’d like to take the time to talk a little about the often overlooked half of the villain duo of Season 1, Lord Hawthorne, and what I think is interesting about him. Out of the many ways pulp heroes have been reimagined into villains over the decades, Lord Hawthorne stands out to me as easily one of the best ones, as a thoughtful take on the Tarzan character.
Spoilers before the cut
The first thing everyone immediately picks about Lord Hawthorne is that he’s Tarzan, with hardly any ifs or buts about it. He’s Tarzan, and we quickly learn that he’s the villain, part of a villain duo with Lady Hawthorne, the real mastermind and kingpin in pearls behind the story’s events. Having Tarzan as the villain n a story that draws from pulp and Edwardian fiction is already an interesting start, as three of the most popular molds from which are pulp heroes are based on, three of the most popular characters as icons, are Tarzan, the Scarlet Pimpernel, and Sherlock Holmes, all three of which exist in some capacity in the world of Lavender Jack. The Gentleman Villain, The Great Detective, and The Wild Man.
Lavender Jack, as I’ve mentioned, is based on the Pimpernel, as well as other figures such as Spring-Heeled Jack and Bertie Wooster. Jack draws from icons that largely predate the pulp heroes because, in Schkade’s own reasoning, if you’re going to try and create an authentic pulp hero, it only makes sense to use as a base the characters that largely inspired them, and clearly that worked out very well. Jack is a Pimpernel remodeled and recontextualized into modern sensibilities, into an era of superheroes and webcomics.
In the Great Detective’s case, we have the figure of Madame Theresa Ferrier, who is called into the story by the Mayor to try and solve the mystery of Lavender Jack’s identity. Schkade describes Ferrier as a character that pulls from elements of detectives like Hercule Poirot and C.Auguste Dupin as well as Sherlock Holmes, in particular Jeremy Brett’s later year performances. As he describes:
In the series’ final years, Brett was getting older, sicker, hindered by bipolar medications that sapped his energy and caused him to gain weight, and he used it. His Holmes became a fading, melancholic shadow of his younger self, but with the spark of his brilliance showing through when it counted. I always found that so compelling
Ferrier is repeteadly described in-universe as “The Great Detective”, and she is both the oldest as well as the most brilliant character in the comic. Despite her age, despite her physical complications, and the tragedy that surrounds her love life, she is nonetheless incredibly skilled, strong and resourceful, able to unmask Jack and survive a confrontation with Lord Hawthorne and even nearly beat him. Ferrier draws from the Great Detectives of old, but this is a character that could never be mistaken for any of them. She’s not specifically based on any of them because, as Schkade puts it: “I wanted her to be someone I’d never get to draw in a leading role in most of my work-for-hire jobs”.
Her role in the comic ends up being one of mentorship to Jack, and despite her age being emphasized as well as the idea of her belonging to an older generation of great heroes that now gives way to the younger and hot-blooded Jack as well as Ferrier’s new partner in Honoria Crabb, Ferrier is very much another great example of where the old meets the new in Lavender Jack. Pulling from the great old archetypes but very much recognizable as her own thing.
Thing is, when it comes to Lord Hawthorne, we don’t really get that, because Lord Hawthorne isn’t really combining the idea of Tarzan with a splash of something new and outstanding and modern. He really is just Tarzan, and not a terribly layered character at that, for much of the story he’s largely just a voiceless bulldozer who exists to do the dirty work of Lady Hawthorne no matter how dirty. This isn’t at all a criticism, because I think Hawthorne being just Tarzan, with little to no bells and whistles and twists on it, is central to what makes him work not just as a great physical threat Jack must overcome (in a similar way to Bane as both a monstrous powerhouse and also having a strong connection to a powerful pulp hero), but also someone whose tragedy comes to light as we finally learn more about him. The fact that he is monosyllabic and largely devoid of any personal interests or life outside of being muscle for Lady Hawthorne is something deliberate, as outlined in a speech given by another character in Chapter 39
Her world's been changing for years, now. She's taking her place in a wider game. A more nuanced game. And you're still...Why, you're only good for one thing, aren't you? Well, maybe two, you old hound, you.
I know why you spend vast stretches of the year off in that jungle. It's not for sport, it's not to keep your edge...it's because when there's no need to fight, no struggle to win, no enemy...there's just...you.
And you know there's not really anything to you, underneath all those scars and muscles.
No dreams, no warmth, no depth. Nothing to love.
So you stay away...and that way, you can come when she calls you. You can sweep back to Gallery and show up all filthy and draw her into your powerful, savage embrace....and maintain your novelty.
All of this so you'll never have to endure a silent sunday afternoon where there's nothing to do, any no one to kill, and your lady simply...doesn't...need you.
You do know this word, don't you, Hawthorne, old fellow? "Novelty?"
And how does he respond?
Not with a denial, but an affirmation that this is ultimately all personhood amounts to, in his worldview. Just one more thing to be conquered and then used as a club to batter others with.
The very act of a character questioning their own worth and depth of personality usually tends to be a telling sign that they, in fact, have those things even if they are out of touch with them, but Hawthorne doesn’t particularly rebuff anything Van Lund’s saying. He just reaffirms his title as Lord while threatening him with violence, because violence is all he knows.
As we later learn, Lord Hawthorne isn’t, in fact, the real Lord Hawthorne, but instead he and his wife usurped the title from the real one as they escaped from the jungle, where he was only known as “the wild man”. A man who’s been forced his entire life to live in a kill-or-be-killed world, to live as an animal in constant conflict with humans, was then captured and then brutally tortured every day for over a month, and then found for the first time someone who treated him with something resembling affection, someone who ultimately turned him into a tool for her evil designs, and he readily accepts this because he has no life, no identity, outside of her. He doesn’t even know his own name.
In fact, for all we know, he might as well be John Clayton himself, except he was born in a world where being Tarzan is not the greatest thing ever and there was no Jane or ape mother to guide his malleable heart into something resembling good, and there was only Sarah to mold him into an instrument of murder at his lowest point.
I argue that Tarzan is a character that’s all about freedom and vitality, as a heroic take on an archetype that’s long been the missing link between superheroes and monsters, where the dual nature of mankind between person and ape acts not as a disorder or source of conflict but instead as the ultimate power fantasy in a character who gets the best of both with none of the downsides. Lord Hawthorne isn’t necessarily a return to form, because there is no dual nature to him. There is no gentleman, no Lord Greystoke descendant of nobility, romantic hero and great adventurer and leader of men and whatnot. There is only the ape, and what little façade has been grafted onto him by his master so he can pass off as a person, only long enough until he takes his shirt off and starts murdering people for her. While we get long extended close-ups of the icy cruelty in Lady Hawthorne’s eyes, there is none for Lord Hawthorne, because he is not cruel, he is an animal. He’s not a fighter, he’s a survivor. He lives to kill and serve the person who tells him who or what to kill.
Lord Hawthorne is what happens when you strip the Tarzan legend of the romanticism of fiction and you look at it for what it would likely result in: the tragic story of a child forced to grow in the jungle, where the concept of personhood and human decency are utterly meaningless and there is only survival, where his existence is at odds with the worlds of man and animal alike, and what happens when that sort of being receives a first contact with something resembling decency and love. Even if said first contact wasn’t with someone as evil as Lady Hawthorne, there was little chance Lord Hawthorne’s life was ever going to be anything other than just an extension of his life in the jungle, or end in anything other than tragedy, and ultimately even the characters start to pity the wild man.
Jack: All that power and stamina and fighting acumen, but yet all you seem to get to use it for is...this. Another laborious climb to another locked-room murder.
Ferrier: You've long passed the point where human lives hold any meaning. You are detached from our species, a...a stranger, loose among us. I thought the sight of you would stir distain in me, or even fear...but as I look at you now...I feel for you only the strangest sort of pity.
What I like most about Lord Hawthorne as a take on Tarzan is that, far too often, we see intended “deconstructions” or reinterpretations of the classic pulp heroes, or even superheroes, that largely just make them villainous by extrapolating the worst possible interpretations of the character’s traits or real-life circumstances around them to villainize them, or outright invent faults and problems that weren’t there in the source material, usually to put one character over the other. The entirety of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is built on this, as is a lot of Superman parodies built on getting the most graphically shocking results possible.
I'll admit it’s somewhat hypocritical of me to criticize this entirely, because it’s an impulse that I sadly admit I myself have fallen into in my own writings on characters not my own, as anyone who’s ever talked with me about Doc Savage, a character I do not like and cannot bring myself to like, can testify. I get why this happens, even if I understand why it’s shitty. Ultimately, the best “deconstructions” or reinterpretations will always come from people who are best familiar with the material they are using and know exactly the best ways to twist it, like with Mark Waid’s Irredeemable, an Evil Superman comic written by a huge Superman fan who knows exactly the absolute worst ways a Superman character can go sour, and was leagues ahead of works like The Boys and Brightburn who largely just take the “easy” pot shots.
With Lord Hawthorne, we get a character who’s an evil take on Tarzan, but whose evilness isn’t made from exaggerating or adding faults to the source material character, which could very easily be done. I never got the sense that the author hates Tarzan and wants everyone to hate Tarzan and is willingly to sacrifice immersion just to get across how much he hates Tarzan (again, something LOEG does way too often), in fact it really doesn’t matter how the author feels about Tarzan, because those feelings are irrevelant to what’s on the page.
Instead, Lord Hawthorne is an evil take on Tarzan whose characterization is largely based on just looking at the source material, the character’s origins, and extrapolating the circumstances in which that could go sour. What would a “wild man” forced to grow up and fight for survival every day in the jungle look like, what would that person look like when making it’s first contact with human affection, how could that person be twisted and manipulated into becoming a villain, what’s even left to that person outside of violent action scenes. How little it would take to twist a childhood hero into a brute that murders old women in their hospital beds, just by tweaking a few details about the context surrounding him.
He is not a caricature of Tarzan, he’s not a parody, he is just Tarzan, but no longer the power fantasy. No longer the center of fantastical adventures. No longer getting the best of both worlds, but instead having to contend with the worst of them. Ultimately only finding some dignity in death, with his nemesis expressing hope that, maybe somewhere else, he’s going to have better luck than what this world afforded him.

sister claire, from a webcomic i’ve been following for. several years now?
The whiplash between wholesome and brutal have been jarring these past chapters. At this point I’m looking at everything with a side glance bc I have no idea what to expect from now on.
Whew, classic ONE leading us into a heartwarming false sense of security....before unleashing his true sadism when we least expect it. D: All fun n games~! Until it’s absolutely not. Shit gets real. Basically everyone, including webcomic readers, are pretty much going in blind in the dark here... There’s no telling or guarantee what to expect next. (And that’s as thrilling as it is frightening. D8) I’ve even seen several wild mass guessings to explain/propose what could happen though:
1. Provided the manga & webcomic are completely separate continuities (or diverged plot/timelines???) then ONE can do whatever he wants to his manga characters in a different way that he hasn’t already done in the wc. Meaning, if he so wished it, he could certainly kill off whoever he wants. O.O;; And these...injuries we’ve seen are precisely as brutal/fatal as they appear...that’s a scary thought, because it feels somewhat unlike ONE to suddenly go that dark towards his heroes;;
2. Chick Phoenix Man or Blast could somehow revive/revert(??) the brutalized heroes, for some completely out of left field twist. The extent to Blast’s dimension-hopping, black hole wielding powers is still unknown, but we know Phoenix Man can ‘heal’ others from even beyond the grave...(and then why would he cooperate, as a monster himself, is another thing.)
3. The extensive injuries suffered could be more of an ominous set-up towards the wc’s current cyborgization arc. D: Provided the heroes receive medical help, the later Neos and the Organization can definitely ‘revive’ people....into becoming brainwashed cyborg puppets against their will. Eeep. Will TTM perhaps receive cyborg enhancements post-arc to ‘recover’ from this?! Now that’s another potential scary thought...
4. Nothing’s set in stone yet until the volumes are published. So the entire structure and sequence of events? Subject to any possible number of redraws or rewriting, but that’s completely up to ONE & Murata’s whims to decide what stays ‘permanent.’
Anyway, we’re all in the same boat here, completely not knowing what can happen next (except for the wc’s general outline of major events...if the manga intends to follow it the same way or not), so stay strong~

Averno April 15th Livestream about Get Wild
Just me summarizing the important information we got from tonights livestream!
“Get Wild” News
“Get Wild” will be announced tomorrow and RELEASED on the 23rd (so we’ll learn what it is tomorrow, the 16th)
It will be “definitely gay, not really scary” unless you get scared easily.
Get Wild is a series that will have new updates/new content every week for over a month
The new content will mean new pfp’s to signify there’s new Averno content
It is NOT related to LFA, however apparently around two years later it will have a LFA relation
"what is the biggest thing you're looking forward to with Get Wild that isn't a possible spoiler?" "the fact that it is so much more content than you guys have ever gotten before, in terms of like density. ... it's not necessarily more than Dazed because that was such an accumulation. however in terms of actual tangible lore, this is the most content that you guys have gotten and it clarifies so many things and also opens so many cans of worms."
Get Wild will involve Dreamspeak and the Averno deer cryptid
Get Wild will be accessible on a free, public app, that ISNT spotify
IT ISN’T A MUSICAL, however I THINK Morgan said that music or a musical may be released later (like, later later) to go along with it (For some of the theories, I think the musical may be Gladiator!)
“Get Wild” theories based off this stream
Many fans (myself included) now believe it’s a Webtoon/Webcomic
I think it *may* have to do with Wayward Sisters, since we’re semi-familiar with two of the characters
Someone on the discord suggested it being related to Dreamweaever
Unrelated to “Get Wild” News
Unrelated to Get Wild but Live From Averno Season 2 is officially outlined and will be released after two other Averno projects are (one of said projects may be Bittersummer related which is SO COOL as someone who loves Bittersummer)
Morgan developed the Averno language (Dreamspeak) SO much. The languages version of “feminine and masculine” words are sky-y and earth-y (the equivalent of Spanish having words end with “o” or “a”) but these aren’t genders, theyre simply sky and earth, and many nonbinary fans started using them as neopronouns. Morgan also plans to ask for deaf creators on the team to help develop a sign language for Dream Speak, and might have plans to open a summer camp for teaching the language
There’s no confirmation of whether or not Camp Averno will happen again this year, we have to wait and see
Morgan finished that Averno novel they were working on. Though it likely won’t be published for over a year and a half, we got some information. It’s mostly happy and around 500 pages. It also has 7 main characters, one per department. We know or at least semi-know five of them (Will, Quinn, Nova, the MC of Get Wild, someone else that I forget, and two people we don’t know yet)
The upcoming Tarot card deck based off one of the “Arcana” characters/their personalized deck is in the works!
Canonically students of A New School have a yearly hide and seek-esque game in the dark where they play music and “hunt” for each other
When asking about character names for Averno fanfic, Morgan suggested avoiding the names “Everett and River” to avoid confusion 👀
Morgan will soon be reading Averno fanfic on AO3
We discussed ship names and Morgan entertained the idea of the (strictly platonic) Will x Quinn ship “Quill” being the most popular Averno ship and it’s all just brotp shenanigans of the two
The character Calliope (found on the wiki/i think has a pintrest board) will be important and make us cry.
The characters Calliope, Jolene, and Annabelle are NOT related to Wayward Sisters
And Morgan and Jamie got a dog! It’s name is Twig but a lot of fans started calling Twig Twog and yes-Twig has at least one fan account already
And there you have it! Hope this summary helped!

Featured characters: - Ayano (Yandere Simulator) - Paya (Breath of the Wild) - Pink Ranger (Power Rangers) - Mister Clean (Mister.
The Inventory is a secret club built underneath a video game storage warehouse. It was established in 1919, after a first draft of the 18th Amendment was acquired by a group of connected gamblers. It was discovered that it could not only outlaw libations, but games and amusements that could decrease the productivity of the national workforce. Despite this never coming to pass, the club has existed since in secret, just in case Congress tried to set prohibition into law. As a newcomer, the player competes in a friendly game of Texas Hold'emPoker with Max of Sam & Max, Strong Bad from Homestar Runner, Tycho from Penny Arcade, and the Heavy from Team Fortress 2. The player is first greeted by Reginald Van Winslow, former captain of the Screaming Narwhal, and sidekick to Guybrush Threepwood in Tales of Monkey Island. He explains the back story of the Inventory, and raises the blinds in game. Other characters from Telltale's games make cameo appearances in the introduction sequence.
Gameplay of Poker Night at the Inventory showing the player winning a showdown with Max with a straight. Strong Bad and the Heavy have folded and Tycho has busted out. Strong Bad is saying to the player, 'Nice hand, gigantic cheater.'
Poker Night is a computer-based Texas Hold 'Em poker simulation between the player as an unseen participant and the four characters, Max, Tycho, The Heavy, and Strong Bad. Each player starts with a $10,000 buy-in and stays in the game until they are broke, with the goal of the player being the last player standing. The game uses no-limit betting and a gradually-increasing blind bets over the course of several rounds. Randomly, one of the four non-playable characters will not be able to front the money but will offer one of their possessions as buy-in for the game. The player can win these items as Team Fortress 2 unlockable equipment only if they are the one to bust that non-player character out of the game. The game keeps track of the player's statistics over the course of several games, and by completing certain objects (such as number of hands or games won) can unlock different playing card or table artwork to customize the look of the game.
On May 15, 2009, Telltale Games started a survey which was meant to gauge fan reaction to a sequel to Telltale Texas Hold'em. While the team liked the deep conversations that the characters in the original game had, they decided to not go down the same path for the new game, using recognizable licensed characters rather than original 'generic' ones.
Poker Night grew out of an idea from Telltale employees, wondering 'what video characters do when they're not 'on the clock' in the games we play', according to Telltale CEO Dan Conners. From there, they pitched the idea to other companies in the industry and were able to work out which characters they would be able to include. Telltale considered how the four characters would interact with each other, developing dialog, banter, and reactions to certain plays. The characters, they decided, would be fully voiced, and would have distinctive tells and dynamic responses that would manifest themselves as the game progressed. Conners stated that the goal was to create the experience of 'hanging out with their virtual buddies, shooting the breeze and playing a good game of poker'. Telltale is considering a potential series based on this game using different characters in the future, but would need to see sales exceeding 100,000 to 200,000 units to make it feasible.
Telltale Games have had previous experience working with several of the characters. Two of Telltale's episodic adventure series include three seasons of Sam & Max and Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People based on the Homestar Runner web series; both were developed in conjunction with the original creators, Steve Purcell and The Brothers Chaps, respectively. The appearance of Max and Strong Bad in Poker Night are based on the three-dimensional models from these games. The company's team were also fans of Valve's Team Fortress 2, including creating an informal team to participate in a competition between several game development studios; Telltale offered to create unique items based on Sam & Max to be given as a bonus gift for those who purchased the third season of Sam & Max through Steam, and formed a friendly working relationship with Valve as a result.
Telltale aimed to make the game dialog-centric between the four featured characters. To that end, they created a large amount of dialog for each character and possible interactions between the characters; according to Jake Rodkin, Telltale's graphic designer, they wrote more lines of dialog for the game than a typical Sam & Max adventure episode. Telltale always wanted to respect the original characters and worked with the individual creators and studios to improve the lines; they previously had gotten similar input from Matt Chapman for Strong Bad, while Jerry Holkins was extremely helpful to refine Tycho's character based on Telltale's draft dialog. The developers also wanted to avoid any forced interactions, and instead developed what they felt were natural relationships: Tycho dislikes Strong Bad while getting along well with Max, while the Heavy looks upon Strong Bad as a tiny Heavy. The characters are also written to be somewhat cognizant of their nature; according to Rodkin, Tycho and Strong Bad are aware of their video game nature, while Max is ambiguous and the Heavy remains blissfully unaware of his death-and-respawning cycle, simply attributing his memories of dying over and over again as dreams.
Poker Night is the first game to include a voice artist for Tycho; provided by voice actor Andrew 'Kid Beyond' Chaikin. The other three characters are voiced by their current voice actors: Max by William Kasten, Heavy by Gary Schwartz, and Strong Bad by Matt Chapman. The game uses existing 3D models for Max, Heavy, and Strong Bad, while Tycho's is built from scratch; at the time of the game's announcement near the Penny Arcade Expo, Telltale was still working on refining Tycho's model, though it was briefly seen during their Make a Scene panel at PAX.
The game was teased by Telltale Games a week prior to its official announcement through a short video on GameTrailers TV, showing the silhouettes of the four characters' official art. The game was officially announced by Telltale Games on September 2, 2010, the eve of the 2010 Penny Arcade Expo. Players who have also purchased Team Fortress 2 will be able to unlock unique items based on the four respective franchises within that game through progress in Poker Night; a special poker visor for Team Fortress 2 was also available for those that pre-ordered the game.
The game received favorable reviews. Review aggregator website Metacritic gave the game a 71/100. It has garnered praise for the memorable interactions between characters and their unique strategies, but received criticism for its relatively lacking animation quality and for numerous bugs, while having favorable praise for the game's sense of humor.
On April 1, 2013, Telltale officially announced a sequel, titled Poker Night 2, featuring Brock Samson from The Venture Bros., Claptrap from the Borderlands series, Ash Williams from The Evil Dead franchise, and Sam from Sam & Max as opponents. GLaDOS from the Portal series serves as the dealer. Other characters such as Max from Sam & Max, the Aperture Science turrets from Portal, and Mad Moxxi and Steve the Bandit from Borderlands make non-playable appearances. The game was released on Steam, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in late April 2013.

*hold a gun to your head* who the fuck are they
Who, Aodh and Colt? IM ASSUMING BECAUSE THATS ALL IVE POSTED
Aodh and Colt are from a Horror RP server called Wargate Regional Penitentiary (it’s under some construction rn form the mods, but it should be alive again soon!) where Aodh is an inmate who set a building on fire because they believed that they are being spoken to by the ancient Celtic deity Belenus (they’re 100% Irish from the island of Bere). They are an idiot who doesnt think.
Colt is the head Max Security Guard who is the biggest asshole in the entire prison and has mysteries around him that I CANT FIGURE OUT.
and in the server there’s kind of 2 rps going. The main plot rp, and the OOC rp. the twos relationship developed mostly in the ooc rp where it started off as like, a “hahaha, what if they were friends” and then we took the joke too far and now the ship is just brainrot in our minds. so ive only been showing *my* art of them. barq, the mind behind colt, has more of their own art of the two as well.
i should also specify that colt is a knock off of his original version from barq’s webcomic Orbit the Moon (@otm_comic on twitter if you wanna check that shit out, its fuckin wild)
BUT, theyre in love your honor and they only JUST met in the main RP but its fine. its fine. we’ll get there again. theyll fall in love itll be great
EDIT: Colt’s face claim is Dan Stevens, and Aodh’s is Kyle Gallner, if that helps at all.

Concept Art: Derora.
This is one-part of a two-part Patreon Post, if you would like the second part, Concept Art: Brunnhilde, check out my Patreon! This is accessible to Tier Guardian.
Derora is one of the protagonists for my upcoming webcomic- Letters to Kingdom. She’s a bit of a wild card! :D

First, it’s going to be wild knowing I am so close to catching up with OotS. That was like, one of the main staples of this comic with Homestuck and Paranatural. My own SuperWhoLock. Homeofthenatural if that doesn’t sound stupid.
First I’m probably going have Girl Genius and Gunnerkrigg Court take up the “main blog” sections. They are the longer ones, so will definitely be more focused on them. Maybe not as a daily thing, but as often as I can. Hell I can probably throw in more Invader Zim too since those are pretty funny.
I also want to try and catch up on some of the smaller webcomics too, the ones that are either short or still being written. Things like Ava’s Demon and Sleepless Domain, Hell I could probably do back to reading stuff I previously caught up on like Out-Of-Placers, or continue some other series I loved but got distracted from like Cucumber’s Quest. Then hopefully with all of that finished and out of the way I can focused on some new obsessions like Property of Hate which I adore.
I’m not sure if the stuff I listed where things that you are down for lol, but I do have another plan on trying out a bunch more series as a trial run of sorts, so keep your eye out ;)
