Just a fun side note!

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.

@Loverofpiggies: POOR HAROLD NOOOO

I think that's great! I'd do the same, no matter how much two characters look together.

Also, I feel like Assistant is going to get tired of being called assistant very soon and we'll find out her real name XD

But that doesn't mean you can't tease the ever-loving crap out of your readers.

Being an Evil Comic Overlord is fun, after all.

You go!

Good job CQ! You keep it the way you want it! No giving in to pressure, no matter how bad! I won't ever ask you for a ship to be made in your works, even though I want it. Keep being you, CQ!

Loverofpiggies, May 25th, 2017, 8:23 am     Reply

But I will say, any ships I have planned are like, definitely full on planned.

Its a bummer though cuz I never get to talk about them on streams. ): Spoilers, and all that.

EDIT: Also this does mean anyone can ship anything they want! Like I'm SUPER cool with this! Just that, I won't change plots for the sake of what people want.

When focus groups write things, this is how you get movies like the Lorax

@Loverofpiggies: I ship Assistant and Harrold a lot and I respect that you wont change how you make their relationship.

P.S. You're my favorite comic maker :D

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 :)

Huh, I just realized...what's her real name? I've been called her Assistant w/o realizing that's not her actual name lol. I look forward to the reveal if there is one.

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 personally think Assistant's name is Rainbow.

BlazingArrow, May 25th, 2017, 3:14 pm     Reply

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.

This does not bode well.

Guest, May 25th, 2017, 4:22 pm     Reply

@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

The songwriter, Will Ryan, wrote that song for a similar reason

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.

Let it be known, I wasn't angry or nothin! I was just making it clear if you ship it awesome, I just got the story to tell the way I want to.

I don't want anyone feeling bad, I want everyone to have fun! But I just wanted to explain to the people who begged: oops, sorry! That's not gonna work on me! hehe

@Loverofpiggies: I won't pretend I wouldn't be extremely disappointed if what you're saying is that HaroldxAssistant won't ever be canon.


Can I still be hopeful if all you're saying is that you're doing the ships that YOU want, and that AssistantxHarold has a chance of being one of those...? Like, the possibility isn't ruled out?

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

Always getting cut off.

I'd laugh if next page she says something like, "I have a name you know...", "It's-" and gets cut off by something like the train stopping. ;w;

@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

Guest, May 26th, 2017, 6:51 am     Reply

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).
