Author commentary

Veronica: Hello and welcome to a very late installment! We have here a new style, too! Traditional lineart, digital colouring. Or rather, toning the background and shading the foreground. Enjoy the show!

ohhhh did somebody say flashback?

Don’t miss a thing!

Every Monday morning, we send thousands of BCB fans a week of pages, a note from the two of us and a shippy comic strip celebrating a random pairing of characters.

We’ll put the link your inbox straight away.

So what do you use to create this style? You still scan it in, then use Photoshop or GIMP, or something?

I’ve been so used to black and white that this is just strange. But I’ll get used to it after a while, I’m sure.

Holy art upgrade…. you have come so far!

Your arts are now, officially, AWESOME.

All that, and great writing too? Wow.

I have seriously not been this wrapped up in a comic series since I first read all of Omaha Cat Dancer.

That had more sex tho.

Oh wow. It is now 10:12 in the morning. I spent every waking moment AND every sleeping moment thinking about this comic, although there wasn’t exactly any chronological order to it, unfortunately, after I fell asleep. Heck, did I even fall asleep? I knew for the longest time that I was cold, and my thoughts/dreams didn’t seem to change whether I was asleep or not, like my dreams were just thoughts all along. XD Not only that, but I have a job coach meeting at 10:45, in about a half hour, and I am having hot cocoa and bread for my breakfast just so I can get back to reading. And I only feel a BIT tired. And I WILL READ ALL OF SEASON 2 BEFORE I GO TO BED TONIGHT, JUST AS I DID WITH SEASON 1 YESTERDAY!! >:D Yeah, I am DEFINITELY crazy, but hey, I’m as mad as a hatter that way, and I have friends who love that side of me. ;) That and I love showing off, even if I’m only showing off to myself. For some reason.
