My apartment is currently desolate, save for a few pieces of furniture yet to be picked up by the friends and family who have committed to purchasing them. Also, my computer is still operational, the last thing to be packed before getting on the road. Tomorrow will be a long process of taking items to Goodwill, other items to the dump, and cleaning the apartment like crazy for our landlord. And then, the wife and I hit the road for California.
I haven’t talked about it at all here, but I’ve been unemployed since November, when my former studio closed. I’m happy to report, however, that I found a new job at Carbine Studios in their design department and I’m in the process of situating myself in California to start work. The strip will not be effected at all, we’ll continue business as usual. I’m working on finishing some strips for when I’m on the road… I apologize in advance if that ends up not happening, since that means you’ll be set upon by Mike’s MS Paint skills. (Actually, I’m curious as to how that would look. Now I’m kind of torn.)
In any case, I just wanted to extend my sincere thanks to everyone who has followed and been excited about what we do here, especially in the past few weeks during what ended up being a long (but ultimately fruitful) job search. It is a huge boon to be able to stay productive during such times and see that people get enjoyment out of the website. We’re still working on some new surprises and keeping things fresh, but until then I just wanted to emphasize that your feedback has helped me find a way to stay positive on more than one occasion when it was badly needed. And because of that, I am humbled. Thanks.
It has been brought to our attention by a worrying number of sources that our use of the term “Slashfic” is incorrect, and that due to the fact that Thrall and Jaina is a heterosexual relationship, does not apply here.
First of all, my initial assumption that “Slash” referred to any erotic fanfiction and it came from the slash in the “Thrall/Jaina” categorization. Thus, you can understand my confusion. Second of all… I’m actually kinda proud that I didn’t understand the proper nomenclature. It means I must have dodged a few bullets in my extensive web browsing during my formative years.
And for the love of God, I *DON’T* want to read your actual Thrall/Jaina fanfiction. PLEASE do not send it to us (anymore).
Happy birthday to my awesome partner in this crazy hairbrained scheme. Please give a shoutout to the lovable bastard in the comments, should you be able to. “F*** Gnomes” is a suitable battlecry as well.
