Fuck nature. That's what I gotta say bout this page.

Sorry again about Monday folks!;-;
I mentioned on the last page, but basically my monthly trip to take my grandma grocery shopping got bumped up to Sunday-Monday, rather than later in the week (very last minute change because there was some sale apparently), so I couldn't get the page done in time.
The plan to update on Tuesday then fell through, because I came home sick as a dog and in pain. Augh! That's one strike against nature.

Then today as I was finished the page...non stop storms. All. Fucking. Day. (I use a pc and not a laptop, so this is a problem). Lovely. I had to shut my pc down as a pre caution a couple times, had to leave it off after one power outage...augh. Second strike. Damnit nature just let me draw!

So I remembered part way through waiting that I did in fact have a laptop; an old backup sitting in my closet. I last used it...eh, half a year ago maybe? I decided to try that. It was slowerish and had heating problems, but literally all I had left to do by now was part of the coloring. So I tried that. After failing to get it to boot twice I was successful. ...and then it kept freezing minutes after every boot and it was basically unusable.

I'm pretty sad about that. It was old and crap, but it was in perfect working order when I put it away. I used this laptop when I was away from home a lot too; it was with that laptop I did the first mouse drawn WA page! Nostalgia...

So yes I am now convinced: this page is CURSED.
Clearly though I did finish. Here's what I did: Stalked the weather updates, seeking out any tiny hole where the storms would slow or stop. Finally, I spotted one such around 2:30 am. So I took a nap until then and woke up and finished. Aw yeah. -That- is how desperate I was to finish this page.

Tomorrow apparently is also non stop storms. I'm so excited!!!!!!:D :D

But hey, check dis out!

Fanart! An animation by Argylefox!

Click here!

Ohhhhh gosh this is amaaazzzzing!:D
Not only is this pose INSANELY badass (that tilted head with the hat and all...one of my favorite all time poses!) but...
The animation...it's just so smooth! I looove that gust of wind! And that dripping blood...beautiful! And the hair!! My favorite is definitely the cloak; I bet that took the longest! It's so beautifully done and everything flows so well ahhhhhh wonderful ;-;

UggggUuhu GuyySSss

I've been battling with it all day, but...I'm really not feeling well today, tonight especially. I wonder if I didn't fully recover from earlier in the week? Probably not. Eugh.
I'm gonna shoot for a Tuesday update, and I should make it unless something terrible happens...
Nnnng. Sorry, guys. In short: I suck, my body sucks, I'm the worstest I'mjustsotiredofbeingsick ;~;

Oh dear this page seems to be cursed indeed.. the top panel is the final proof of that, it's all written there.. O.O Poor laptop, and I can so relate, I keep all my old ones as well D:

That fanart rocks! :D

Awww, everyone's ditching Benny-boy :'D LOL I mean, uh, everyone's making convenient excuses and floating away~ XD;;

Eva worries me, like, I'm worried she's going to go back to the bunker and shoot the old guy :'D or something like that, ahahaha XD (nah, I'm sure she won't... right? :'D)

I hope you find 20 kittens, Jeffu <3

Seabiscuit
Hahah! Floating away! I'm sure Benny boy isn't against alone time with Anne tho~

I think Eva worries everyone about now- Mwahhaha! (Nah, it'd take her too long to get back to the bunker if that's what she wanted to do~)

He deserves 20 kittens, and more! ;~;

Oh, wow, you did manage to update! :D
You spoil us, Sea~

I'm getting a guilty vibe off Eva, she didn't shoot that old guy's son did she?!
Aaaw, Jeff! Kitties make everything better~ <3

Seabiscuit
I did! I had to sleep a few hours and get back to it late last night, but I did it dangit!!>D

Ah, everyone is ditching him, but now he can spend some 1 on 1 time with Anne.
I know how Jeff feels, I'm glad I have a dog to spend time with.
I hope the storms go away from your area. Earlier this year we had a lot of them but the weather has become a lot better. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather of autumn.
Seabiscuit 18th Sep 2015, 10:58 AM edit delete reply
Seabiscuit
Yep! That's probably preferable in some ways, surely!
Oh yes. I'm glad I have my kitties to hug when times gets rough, hahah.
Yeah...I hope so, too. I see some more headed my way today. But at least I don't have a page to finish -today-. :Y

I can't WAIt for fall. Best time of the year, and hopefully these damn fleas will start to die off!

Man it's great to be able to read a bunch of pages in a row :D

I love Jeff's comment about hugging kitties.

I've also had some similar computer issues, except my new computer's hard drive bit the dust and I'm using an ancient XP laptop to do all my computing/artwork now. It sucks, but at least I can get shit colored ;D

Seabiscuit
Hahah~ Buffer! ;D

I'm glad you like that! Jeff deserves kitties.

Awww, that's a shame! At least it works, yeah.:(
XP is still great, at least! It could of been worse. It coulda been vista.;D
