ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Oct. 3, 2018

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, June 8, 2018



Tropes aren’t bad. In fact, they are a useful and, at times, necessary shorthand that creators, particularly in the webcomic field, can wield to enhance their work. J Hillis Miller posited a trope as, “… the use of figurative language, via word, phrase or an image, for artistic effect.”

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, March 26, 2018



Earlier this week, I was given the opportunity to write a two-weeks notice/resignation letter for a coworker leaving the same company I work. It was an interesting experience and it allowed me to feel the joys of quitting without actually having to lose my employment, but it did make ...

Time Stand Still

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 9, 2017
