Hey guys, hope you're having a great week so far!

The more that I think about it, the more that I'm happy that I got these two back together as early as I did in this section of the story. I think that they both have some issues to deal with, and the only way to make it happen is to put them in the same room together...

If you don't read Love Kills Slowly, he has a competition going that will result in him making a custom action figure. I'm going to post more information on it on Saturday, but the contest is open now if you want to check it out.

I also noticed that we were at 30th on TopWebcomics, so I wanted to say Thank You to everyone. It's really appreciated!

Take care and have a great weekend!

Got my hair coloured today, I'm really happy with it!

Here's a shout out to the stylist if she comes to read the comic as I was telling her about it! :D

i think the layout is slightly shrinking the comic

also the bar the bottom is kinda messing up

and a post comment link under the comments would be nice

Ohhhh boy, bearing in mind what you said a while ago about Chad's future deeds... and the fact that these two might soon be alone together... plus this title... I don't think this will be good for Beth AT ALL.

PS ENJOY her coffee? It's TOGM coffee, "enjoy" cannot be applied to it.

I'm going to a show next month (VA Comicon) to see one of my other favorite Web Comic Teams (Blue Milk Special). I wish I could see you guys at a show sometime.

Web Comics have officially replaced print Comics as my favorite to read!

If Chad doesn't get to say Hulk Smash while his shirt rips open, I will be very disappointed.

Also a rate this comic button would be nice for those times like today where I can't think of much to say other than to ramble on and on about how I should've just rated this comic instead of boring everyone here with this mindless jabber of course I might have just missed where the button was or it could be that the page is still having troubles with firefox as the add banner at the top goes right through the bottom half of the TOGM banner now before people start freaking out at me here is your 5 and I apologize for not putting in any punctuation marks like commas and periods but I"m thinking a mile minute and way overtired from being up since 10 o clock last night mountain standard time (AB for those that know canadian provinces) time for bed great job on the comic I can't wait to see what happens next

@Megan Rees - I actually looked back on it and thought "Did I really title it that?", but while it's not funny in the slightest, it certainly describes how this is going to go down...

@cinnamonbrandy - I think she was going for the Tangled look, where she whips her hair around dramatically :)

@Kyo - It is slightly squishing it, width-wise. I'm not sure what effect that has on things?

The bar on the bottom is definitely messing up, and there is normally a post comment link when .. well, when it's not messing up.

Unfortunately, the layout that Zeph sent lacked a few features, including the Footer, and my attempt to add it in was met with something of a disaster :)

@aok666 - Wow, you are definitely one of the more observant readers... I was wondering if anyone was going to remember that when things went down.

And yeah, there was some irony in her statement about enjoying her coffee, I think ;)

@T.Gatto - We would love to go, but we seem to lack the time or inclination to actually monetize this comic in any meaningful way... And if we can't get at least some of it paid for in merch sales, paying for a Toronto Con is probably out of the question... If you're ever around the Toronto area, on the other hand, maybe we can see about arranging something nice :)

@bbedlam - I think that Chad is not going to have much choice in when those buttons finally pop ;) Less a dramatic tearing of his flimsy clothes and more an embarrassing PEW! as one of the buttons is sent into orbit... Through the building.

@D_Man - Wow, the more that people mention all the things that the layout is missing, the more I realize that I forgot to ask for a lot of stuff when Zeph asked me what the site needed to contain...

loving beth more and more, hating chad FAR more and more. -pulls out the shotgun- ... actually... -pulls out the energy sword- ok chad.... let's dance.

If you don't like him now.... ;)

Re-archivetrawled recently, so Bad Chad remark was fresh in my memory.
model S (Guest) edit delete reply
nah i've almost always hated him, i just wanted an excuse to do this -stabs him in the back through his chest with the energy sword pulled out earlier- spartans never die, but you ain't no spartan. -bashes chad's head with a gravity hammer-

maybe that's a bit overly violent....
-pokes chad repetedly with a stick-

I anticipate some kind of karmic payback for dear ol Chad. :)

@aok666 - Ohhh, that makes sense. In the archive binge, did the story make sense? Did you see the foreshadowing about Thomas and John being two separate people? I'm always curious if the story makes sense unto itself without already knowing some of the ins and outs that I know as the author..

@model S - Yes, I recall that you were never a big fan of his... Maybe he represents something to you that you dislike ;)

@jordanch68 - That is definitely a possibility ;)

mostly yea. i had alot of bullies back in school... he subconciously reminds me of a few of them. ^^; atleast that's my guess.
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
Yes, now I know what they are I can see the foreshadowings. The ones for stuff already revealed, anyway.
Magravan edit delete reply
@model S - He certainly fits the bully stereotype...

@aok666 - I'm glad to hear that! I put a lot of effort into 150 and the foreshadowing so that I can claim that it wasn't just thrown in out of the blue ;)

Just to be insensitive (and off topic).
Sir Richard Paul McCartney is getting married again.
I bet this new bride will have a leg up on the last one.
Kyo edit delete reply
the squishing of comic images (especially if only slightly) just kinda makes everything a bit blurry which is annoying.
Magravan edit delete reply
@T.Gatto - You and your obscure references :P

@Kyo - I'm ... not really sure why we are doing that, to be honest.
