How Little and How Much?

Banes at 12:00AM, July 16, 2020



In the early weeks of the pandemic, I started updating my comic more. Shortly after that, I took two weeks off work and went even harder.

I was updating furiously, at least in comparison to what I'd been doing for a year or two previous. In fact, after about ...

There Is No See Saw

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, May 23, 2020



(I'm writing this after a very long and hard day of mental and physical work so if it sounds ranty or convoluted…. eh, you've been warned :P )

How Dairy Not Tip the Waiter!

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, March 9, 2020


(What an udder failure.)

Do you like puns?

I love puns.

I once entered a pun contest and I wrote ten different puns, but at the end, none of them won.

That is correct. No pun, in ten, did.

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 18, 2020

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 14, 2019



As it has been seen very painfully lately in TV, the best story, with the most excellent buildup and most powerful cast of characters will just collapse if the ending isn't good enough.
