-I found this comic about a pair of breasts that I made in the fourth grade, it was quite disturbing…

-I used to run around naked or in my underwear banging on pots and pans.

-I ate my dog's food, and drank from its water dish which really pissed her off.

-I used to run around the living room and dance to the King of the Hill theme.

-I always wanted a sip of “daddy's adult drink”.

-I tipped my brother over in his high-chair and told my mom “he fell by himself” even though she stood there and watched me.

- I did a comic about an happy bunny in 3rd or 4th grade, sell it one dollar to a guy, stole it from him and sell it to my friend.

- I also did some board games (still in primary school), rentabilized with the same principle.

I hated people until I got to junior year in high school. I had/have a speach impendiment. I had/have a quick temper and as a kid I'd beat up bullies.

What, I'm the only one here that thinks that sounds more like a public service than an unpleasant discovery?

I get unpleasant discoveries just looking at my old comics, nevermind childhood. Nothing unpleasant about my childhood. The only odd discovery is how little I've changed – people who've not seen me in years since grade school can still apparently recognize me with a glance.

Hey, me too! I used to have such horrible speech impediments, I swear I have no idea how anyone understood me. I never fully got rid of that, but these days it's a lot better and most people actually mistake it for an accent…I get asked a lot where I'm from. Sometimes I'm like “Um, Canada, I just talk funny” but when I get bored of that and it's a complete stranger I just make up a life story.

I used to know a whole lot. Never had the guts to draw it though.

Wow, I totally see your roots showing! (makes it sound like you have a bad dye job… uhh)

that's great. looks like you were always into funky lettering


Here's possibly the most unpleasant discovery about myself: page 78 of my old comic, Misfit Assassins. I had a LOT of bad pages– this one somehow is the most weirdly, hilariously bad. I obviously hadn't figured out how to use my tablet, to tone, or– oh yeah!– to draw.

I'm a rather fscked up human being.

Lesee, I turned Atheist at age 7, but before then I was indoctrinated by a Southern Baptist Megachurch's Preschool Program, during which me and my childhood bestest buddy used to pray to God to smite each other.

My old neighborhood turned into a Ghetto shortly after Me n' my parents moved out.

I was a huge fan of Gundam anime as a kid (Seriously, what kid doesn't like Giant Robots?), and I also had a rather messed up young delinquent as a friend. This combination led to the use of my action figures for scenarios involving Gundam Sex. I was about 9 at the time- I didn't quite know what Sex was, for all I knew it was making out (Genetic material was transferred through saliva was my theory until 6th grade).

In 6th grade (Ah, gotta love Middle School), I wore Short Shorts to Gym for the first few weeks. Shortly thereafter, I spent about 30 minutes asking kids what “Gay” was. The problem was, this is middle school in the deep south, Kids didn't know what “Gay” is, they just know it's bad and should be hated, and short shorts were apparently supremely gay. I remember thinking that hating it didn't make a lot of sense, and really didn't care. And I still don't.

I began to listen to orchestral metal (Specifically Nightwish) in 5th grade.
I began to listen to protest punk (Specifically Bad Religion) in 4th grade.
I still listen to both of those bands, and I'm still a Metalhead and a Rioteer to this day.

I picked up this story i wrote when I was a lot younger, it was the start of a book called “The Journey to Mount Doom”. It was about hobbens and how one hobben found a piece of rock that was glowing. After a great party at the hobben town, the one hobben showed his rock to 3 other friends who then showed some wizard. The wizard decided they needed to go to Mount Doom and replace the rock before the gorcs got them. see any parallels to a certain trilogy?

I showed my sister and we laughed together for literally 5 minutes. hahahahaha.

After all that laughing, it was weird because I felt guilty that I laughed at a 7-year-old, even though he was me.

Took me a second to get the genders straight (or gay, as the case may be) on that one…

I was a gullible child. Not very surprising, I know. But I mean to the point that people took advantage over it. My older brother would blackmail me with stuff like “I'll give dad a bad report!” (He was to watch over me while my father was out) and “I'll tell my mom what your mom said about my mom!” And he'd make me give him my Pokemon cards, get things for him (Which I what I blame for him being so fat)

During my pre-teen/early teen years, I was an attention-mongering bastard. At least, on the Internet. Probably because this is when I was kinda fat and, well, if you're even slightly fat in Middle School, yo' ass is gonna be an outcast.

And if I went through a list of all the “fetishes” I had when I was young, we'd be here for quite some time. Interesting side note: When you know what a fetish is actually called, it makes it a lot easier to Google.

Man, after reading all that,(in fact, all of this thread) I'm feeling a lot more consoled that I should be.

Maybe I just have an insatiable appetite for weird, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who was messed up as a kid.

Sadly, I lost almost all of my comics that I drew between the age of 5 and 12 (there was like couple of thousand pages total).
Somehow, it doesn't surprise me that you've always been pathologically prolific! ;)

I've toyed around with the idea of posting some old comics- one especially that my brother and I drew that's just… surreal! I think it'd be fun to have a collab project where folks posted their childhood drawings/ comics. >:) Tre humbling!



I'd be all for that idea. Like “drunkducker's secret shames”.

All you people had such filthy minds! I was so innnocent, I wrote “bloody” as a cuss in a comic when I was eleven and felt so guilty I binned it in case my parents ever found out.

I used to do a sort of impromptu comic with my friends instead of passing notes, where our characters would talk instead about random things. Sometimes I'd try and get them to do something hilarious and random, but we'd end up discussing what they'd do for so long nothing ever came of it. Like an extended sketch of the Vultures in the Jungle Book.

Unpleasant discoveries about me? My old diary is phenomenonly arrogant, to the extent I was laughing at it quite hard. For example, theres a poor biro drawing of my face (complete with biro constructions lines) saying “That's life” with “synical 13” written next to me.
Also, spending the majority of my secondary education in a tutor group I couldn't make friends in (as part of a character building idea to give me a seperate personality from my twin) I automatically assume people are out to get me (true in secondary school), and I've since realised I'm extremely judgemental.

The prime example of this idiocy is when a person on my art course told me that they liked the work of H.R Giger, and I said “Really? You don't look like you would” because ALL Giger fans obviously dress in bondage with metal piercing their nipples.

…Yeah, I should think more before I speak ^^;

“Liz shaved her legs today. I'm so jealous.”


I just laughed so hard I almost cried. I guess my embarrassing thing was that something in the bathtub, I'd pretend I was a mermaid. I can't really think of anything else.

I have so many examples it's ridiculous

When I was a toddler my parents used to have free range chickens and I would try to ride them. I think I might have broken the legs on a few of them.

When I was a child I would dress my plastic dinosaurs up in Barbie dresses. And I would play a game I called dragons. It involved me running around the school yard pretending to be a dragon. The sad part was I didn't care if anyone was playing it with me or if what I was doing made any sense, so there would be this freak kid running around growling at people and flapping their arms like wings.

In grade 7 I wrote a huge Star Trek fan fic from the Dominion's point of view with them as the good guys and the Federation being evil. A year ago I thought that was a neat concept so I went looking for it again. When I found my fan fic I found it was full of Mary Sues and angst, and was basically an excuse to write bad romance / porn about the Founders. Around this time I also drew a lot of pictures of dragons doing the nasty.

In high school I tried to be a Satan worshiper, or goth, or an evil witch, or just scary, I didn't really pull any of those off. I also started writing stories about an original universe I imagined but my writing hadn't improved so my stories were still filled with angst and bad love scenes. How bad where my stories? They were about space vampires, which were all gothic and angsty like regular vampires but they lived on space ships, and instead of turning into bats they would turn into dragons.

Not sure I can really relate to most of this since I didn't fully understand the mechanics of sex until I was like 12. Not that I see that as a bad thing, cause there was really no reason to understand it at that age.

To be honest, I didn't escape my awkward stage until I entered high school, which was last year. However, I'd say it was at it's worst around the 5th/6th grade because puberty hit and all the guy friends I had accumulated during the 3rd grade didn't want to be my friend anymore because I wore a bra. So, to be blunt, I was a miserable little shit for a long time. I was one of those girls that pushed away anything that was even slightly girly. (Which is such a contrast to now since I legit said “If I could wear dresses and skirts all the time, I would…” only yesterday) I was one of those people who couldn't fit in with the other girls, so I hated everyone and talked badly about them all the time. Plus, I discovered the Internet, so I basically confined myself to the computer.

Well, to get to the point, I'd get in fights with people a lot online because of being young and still thinking I was a child genius because I knew how to work a pencil better than most people my age. I took criticism terribly and now when I look back at those old forums and see my old posts… you know when you remember an embarrassing moment and you feel just as embarrassed as when it happened? Well, yeah. I gradually got better, but I still regret a lot of it (The overreactions, the online dating of this kid who still stalks to to this day…) Thank God for high school, man.

I was into yaoi when i was 13 and drew these little chibi comics with huge penises, i actually made them for my friends to laugh at(no really) I wish i had kept them but sadly they are lost.


Here's a very factual report on kids and their warped views of sex:

Tee-hee, I love the Onion.

I was the epitome of horrible anime otaku-ness. Like, anything Japan made me freak out. Just thinking about it makes me cringe in disgust.

Nowadays, I don't like anime at all and anything Japan makes me…laugh. They've got some seriously weird stuff there.
