(Spoilers in this post if you just started reading.)

I don't know about the rest of you, but if I took on the persona of one of my characters... it would be odd. Even just a character from someone else's novel/story/whatever. Felicia is an invented character of Natalie's. I don't think I could do that.

Who here could? With what character from what book/story/webcomic?

I'm a bit of a writer and I have a sarcastic jerk named Chase... actually, I think I can pull that off. Not too different from how I normally am really.

Whenever I see a movie I like to act like characters I like 4 a couple weeks

I can, with this character in my own yet to begin comic. Guy's name is Kurt. He's a cold dude who rarely shows emotion. I'm a very emotion showing dude. Yet I can pull a Kurt.

Natalie is like, afraid of a song, because of some video. In 173 and 212, there are music notes, which make me think it is a real song.

Um... what? That song's creepy, in a "there are some things you just can't unsee" sort of way, but I don't know how it could be scary... Are we listening to the same song?

I listened to the song and it scared the s@!t out of me

I just want to say thank you for doing this comic, and continuing to do it, it's definitely one of my favorites.

I prefer the term "hiatus". But the plan is to start it back up Mayish, once time permits.

-Christmas burgers taste awesome if you finish them
-Moms are nearly always reading newspapers
-You can sit around basically all day and play video games
-Names are Really Important, and can be changed at your leisure
-It's totally okay to construct elaborate plans to get people to do stuff with you. Make sure you include a lot of reverse psychology, confusion, and friends who kind of hope they're wrong about what you're trying to do.

Anyone else? There's a lot.

Idea 1: Eden has anger management issues. While she still had Natalie around, she could control them by channeling her energy into making Natalie happier. You can't be mad at Natalie. But without her,...

That is a good idea. Though Aurora sort of, kind of shows up in IA... I think.
posted by myexplodingcat at 6:31:12 pm, January 21, 2013
I think Eden is the creator of SoL, since her chess pieces include Gemini and Allison. Though Mia and Aurora weren't mentioned.

Anyone want to bet on whether Eden will try to kill Lex in the next comic?
posted by myexplodingcat at 6:27:14 pm, January 21, 2013
It's already mixed with SoL and kinda ToW at this point

The otherworld is her recurring dream, apparently, and team one is her story. In the otherworld, team one enters the otherworld (presumably). There might be some sort of connection then?
1 ReplyRecent Replies:
Yes, I think so. I mean it's like team one's story is written by her and put on the web as her comics right?
