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!
A lot of people were beggin me to 'make certain ships canon' recently so I'm gonna say this one thing:
I will never ever alter my comic to appease readers. If I ever choose to change things, its because an idea I like more has come up, or that a reader says an idea I GENUINELY want to play with, in story!
But I will never cave in to pressure, and change how characters think and behave, because people think they're cute together. Whatever plans I have for the story, will go exactly the way I've been planning them to go for years.
im glad lop, as much as i ship them . the last thing i want is pandering and them acting out of character in-comic. you always stay true to yourself and thats one of the reasons i respect you so much as a webcomic author, artist and person :)
By all means, don't let the insatiable thirst of shippers influence your story. Things don't always turn out how we want them to. Sorry if we're making you feel like we're trying to force you to change the story in any way.
I can't help but notice that Assistant's face in that third panel doesn't seem to be expressing... anything I would expect her to be expressing. Actually, I don't know WHAT that expression is. She's not crying, she's not mad, she just looks... tired.
@Loverofpiggies Good for you, not letting people force you to make certain ships canon! I really like it when artists are able to 'stand up for themselves and create what they want, without being pushed around by a small group of fans. On that note, I believe that you may like this song. Even if rock/metal isn't your thing, I'm sure you'd still appreciate the lyrics. It's 'Heart of an Artist' by DAgames https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=a69ALxs6lIY
I feel so sorry for Harold right now.... He lost everything, he sees himself as a coward and he even has invisible limbs...if I were there I would hug him and say that everything is ok , but... I am not
lol I do ship Harold and Assistant but if that is not in your plans I can totally respect that. I just find them cute, I also want to give poor Harold hugs. He's been dealing with a lot and I'm surprised he hasn't completely lost it.
Okay as much as I love how serious this is becoming and how emotional it is rn, I laughed when he called her assistant because it's such a serious moment, but he didn't even use her real name xD I get why, I just think it's funny
@Loverofpiggies I'm writing a fanfic and I have a few questions so I can make it factually as accurate as possible. (Some might be a few questions in one; I have a rambling train of thought :P) Oh, and if any of these would give a spoiler for later, I tooootally understand! :)
#1 With Purple, is it just the fact that he's physically near something that makes it start to turn purple, or does it have to be skin contact? Also, if he touches someone's skin, like an arm, will their skin turn purple? And, if he touches someone's clothes (that's not one of the colour people), will their clothes start to turn purple around where he touches it?
#2 What's the extent of Harold's candy magic? Can he create something like chocolate fudge ice cream, or is that too far beyond candy for him to be able to do that?
#3 Would Harold ever lean against someone while sitting with them? Or is he not comfortable with that kind of contact?
#4 (I'm just curious about this one; I like character names and where the author thought of them/got them from) How did you come up witht the names Wallis and Harold? Is there any specific meaning to them?
If you answer this, thanks sooo much for taking time to answer my rambling questions! :D
Oohh! I forgot one! With Harold's invisible limbs, what would the base of those limbs look like? Would his shoulders look like a cross section without any blood going everywhere? Or do his shoulders look someway else?
@Loverofpiggies: I agree with this. No one should force ya to do what they wanna do. And, I just want to apologize in case I have ever done this. I tend to be forgetful and a bit pushy. So, I apologize.
Dude whenever there's a cute or awkward scene between two characters, dozens of people will be like "ERMAGERD I SHIPP ITTT".
Relationships, not just the romantic kind, exist in so many forms. Friendships come in so many different flavours that I reckon are so much more fun to explore in characters than the more romantic ones (well, that's what I find with my own characters).
you go writer!
im so proud of you for refusing to give into what people want. i am slightly new but i love this comic. you do you and never ever let people try to force you into doing that'll "make it better" you earned your place. and no one told you how. its an inspiration to all writers.
