(Feel free to continue to weigh in, but I wanted to say, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP YOU GUYS!! <3 I have weird ulterior motives and this is all a big help. c: )
Informal poll: Have you heard the phrase “cult of personality” used before?
Anonymous asked: It would be so great if you would do a livestream sometime. I remember going to a few of yours and they were so cool. :)
fire-or-drayton asked: Yo, would you consider doing some kinda tutorial (or suggesting an existing one, I suppose!) for the way you draw buildings and environments? It's really cool seeing your process (I love RW's detailed backgrounds!) but I always wonder how all the crazy perspective works; I'm having so much trouble figuring out this stuff on my own x) Though I realize tutorials take ages and all, so...
Anonymous asked: Your D&D characters are all really unique and interesting! Where do you get the ideas for them from?
aspidosecalis asked: THIS MIGHT SEEM LIKE A STRANGE QUESTION? I just found your tumblr though, and I was scrolling through, and I can't tell, but based on a few comments, are you anosmic? As an anosmic, I can't not ask.
fire-or-drayton asked: Haha, Nostalgia Quest is really great, I need to try something similar myself :D D'you tend to keep all of your old stuff, or is this all by memory?
Anonymous asked: Hi ummm. Gosh, this feels awkward but... I just wanna say thank you for TNH. Y'see, I'm autistic, so a lot of things that make sense to normal people don't make sense to me. Such as college, work and generally functioning as a fully grown person. I found TNH a few years ago, just as I was leaving required education, and it helped me a lot to figure out things like what I wanted to...
amongthegentlymad asked: For the possum's name how about Hambone?
dorkboy asked: I wanted to thank you for your d&d advice. Found a board and started playing a solo adventure with one of the DMs. Also, I think I may have nabbed a few ideas for a project I'm working on from Runewriters ... I hope you don't mind?
Alan: I'm glad you shared this with me. I feel our friendship has deepened.
Shazz: Oh good!
Alan: Every word, like a spade digging into a trench.
Shazz: That's the best possible way to describe our relationship.
Ahhhh GOSH thank you! I’m so happy other people are interested in my weird video game story idea! I’M HAVING A LOT OF FUN WITH IT. I think it’s probably in the same place Runewriters was six or seven years ago — I’m working on developing it and I’d love to tell a real story for it but I’ve got so much still to figure out! Right now I’m still just...
tarltarasa asked: Every time I see a tumblr post from you I miss Today Nothing Happened! Will there ever be a chance of it coming back?
Anonymous asked: Umm... I know this isn't a question, but it's really cool how you're totes up for putting up things you came up with when you were younger and fessin' up to how terrible some of it was. I'd be mortified about sharing some of the things I came up with merely a year ago, let alone the terrible fanfiction of my teenage years. Ugh! So yes, congratulations on being all mature...
pennhurst: spending 300 hours developing characters that arent even main characters liking them more than your main characters Esra was originally invented when I was drawing Quentin and needed him to be talking to someone. He got a name so that Quentin could refer to him by name. And that’s why none of my side characters are allowed to have names anymore.
I've waited my whole life for this moment
Mike: I even had a dream where I was decapitated!
Shazz: Wow. Did the dream, like, continue after that?
Shazz: ......or did you QUIT WHEN YOU WERE A HEAD? 8D
Shazz: *spends five minutes laughing at own joke*
dorkboy asked: Do you have any suggestions for someone who wants to get into d&d, but has nobody to play with locally? I wanna play so badly, but I don't have anyone to play with :(
Anonymous asked: What did you major/minor in?
She was supposed to be proofreading
Rachels: I'm sorry that my first thought
Rachels: upon the second to last panel
Shazzbaa: oh dear
Rachels: was that Tareth looks like "AND WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO HOLD THIS BARRICADE"
Rachels: (#might have been listening to les mis in the car #no regrets)
Shazzbaa: Tareth: Character Least Likely to Burst Into Song
Rachels: that or "THEY SHALL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM"
Shazzbaa: Tareth: The Reason This Comic Cannot be Adapted Into a Musical
Rachels: that kind of makes sense
Shazzbaa: even moreso than Jonan
Rachels: I could totally see a musical of rw
Rachels: because one: Jonan would have that one soliloquy that is or is not a song but completely breaks the fourth wall because it can't be "in canon"
Shazzbaa: I WAS THINKING THE SAME ACTUALLY
Rachels: two: tareth would be the one doing something like, front stage right through an entire musical number
Rachels: and then once everyone's done and exeunt
Rachels: she turns around
Rachels: and is like "...why do i feel like i missed something?"
Shazzbaa: But no I was thinking the same
Shazzbaa: Jonan would DEF get his own musical number and it would involve everyone on stage basically freezing in place, while he sings about what IDIOTS they all are and WHY DON'T THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS VERY CLEARLY TRYING TO COMMUNICATE
Rachels: LOL PRETTY MUCH
Rachels: man no I would actually have a lot of fun writing his asides to the audience is that weird to say
Shazzbaa: so uh basically Jonan would be the best character in a musical?
Rachels: HE'D BE A LOT OF FUN
Rachels: cuz I feel like one of the best ways to make him not insufferable
Rachels: would be to make him the snarky viewpoint into the action
Shazzbaa: LOL yes.
Rachels: where he's the one kind of engaging the audience like "are you seeing this"
Rachels: "like, it's not just me right"
Rachels: "this is ridiculous"
Shazzbaa: xDDDDDDDD wonderful
Shazzbaa: I approve
Shazzbaa: let's adapt RW into a musical right away
paulandnocompany asked: I'm getting SQL errors on the Runewriters site.
zimmay replied to your post: Seth has always been a master of backhanded compliments; they are the only kind he knows how to give. You forgot to mention the part where ST was in-potion-love with Seth too. I can see that bashful anime blush, ST, you’re not hiding anything. YEAH UH YEAH THAT WAS ALSO A THING THAT PROBABLY INFLUENCED SNAKETONGUE’S DECISION TO TRY TO MAKE HIMSELF LESS...
