She was just a regular, unwanted kid, until she was lucky enough to get a job under the best magician in the world! Unfortunately for her, her new boss is a self absorbed sociopath.
Updates are currently Monday, with some sporadic mid-week updates if I have time!
Not necessarily in response to the "toned down" comment above, but I thought I'd leave a comment with my own opinion on the matter, just so you have some diversity in your feedback!
I actually like the "toned down" feel. The more over-the-top you make a series, the more difficult it is to reel people back in and make them care about anyone or take anything seriously. It's the price you pay for being able to wreak such plot-based havoc without narrative consequence.
The "toned-down" or reeled-in version now makes everything seem a bit more grounded, while still retaining its wacky feel. It makes the characters' stories and the world feel much more immersive and real (...to a Gloomverse extent, of course!)
I think it allows people to connect with the comic in ways that were previously impossible or difficult. It's difficult for some readers to pay attention to the thought you've put into this world's rules about magic and the magic-based society when the focus is on the loud jokes and comical destruction. Not that there was or is anything wrong with that, but it's very distracting and like I said earlier, the use of such destructive humor with zero consequences removes readers from the real-ness of the events and the importance of the subtleties just a bit.
I like it more like this, but that's just me! I fav'd it before you ever pulled the Femiswitch so I'm certainly not biased either! :3
@SpiralPen: Aww that really means a lot. I'm glad you see why I made the change, because that was exactly it! I wanted more real characters, and a grounded universe which I could have much more freedom with, and that just wasn't happening, and literally couldn't happen, in the other version. And actually, to be totally honest, the plot I thought up for Gloomverse was incapable of happening with the other story, because it required more depth of characters that were obviously blatantly flat.
Deudddes. I have no problem with reeling people in in comics, and I can't speak for the future, but according to the next page, I just may get my pants surprised off.
I just said those things because I really loved the shock factor the characters used to have. But hell. Like I said. I may be surprised....Still love the comic anyhow, btw ;)
