Comics, links and leftovers!
This section contains a number of comics that were part of the original archive but were later removed or replaced. Consider them half-canonical.
- Unfulfilled dayyyy: 9 pages, first published 5/3/06. BCB’s first chapter. It was a bit aimless, so Simple Pleasures replaced it.
- The First Meeting: 4 pages, first published 5/23/06. Mike and Lucy’s first encounter.
- First Interaction: 4 pages, first published 5/27/06. A continuation of “The First Meeting”.
- Development of Friendship: 8 pages, first published 5/29/06. Sandy’s first appearance.
- The Burden of Parenthood (Original version): 4 pages, first published 5/19/06. Replaced with an updated version after the release of Volume One.
- Up to Bat: 4 pages, first published 6/6/06. You guessed it: baseball. We reused the title here.
- Chirpy’s Introduction: 4 pages, first published 6/9/06. A chapter for Chirpy!
- Confrontation (Original version): 12 pages, first published 7/18/06. Replaced with a rewrite in late 2009. Time didn’t treat the original very well.
- Unfinished Abbey Chapter: 3 pages, never published. Originally planned to follow “Moving On”, this story was later covered in At Loose Ends.
- Mischief Night (Deleted pages): 3 pages, first published 10/18/10. These pages were removed from Mischief Night after the release of Volume Two.
- Magical Girl Lucy-chan: 10 pages, first published 12/24/13. A years-old summary of an embarrassing pre-BCB story Vero used the characters for when she was 12.
- Another Plan: 9 pages, first published 1/7/14. A speculative bonus chapter that was published during the comic’s “holiday break”.

Comics We Love
- Look Straight Ahead: A dark, deeply involving story about a boy with some terrible problems. Complete.
- I Do Not Have An Eating Disorder: A gut-wrenchingly honest autobiographical comic. The art plays with your head and offers insight into the mind of a person suffering through an eating disorder.
- Polyamory Isn’t for Everyone: A different perspective of the girlfriend who appears in the previous comic. A fairly upsetting tale of how multiple partner relationships can go wrong.
- Cheap Thrills: A truly dramatic slice-of-life comic. (Sadly cut short!)
- Drop-Out: A suicidal couple are driving to the Grand Canyon to end it all. Raw, realistic and terrifyingly relatable if you’ve ever felt those dark feelings.
- Lighter Than Heir: A great fantasy story with a “dynamic” protagonist.
- Girly: A sweet and silly romance story about a leader and her sidekick. Now complete, it is one of the first comics your author ever read and it is very close to her heart.
- It Hurts!!: Fun, energetic banter between a bunch of rambunctious kids. It’s really good, and completed now so you can read it in its entirety!
- Brawl in the Family: A Nintendo fancomic which sets itself apart with funny observations. Now completed. If you know the material, you’ll love it.
- Rare Candy Treatment: As above. Clever video game humour, but this time it’s centred on Pokemon! Also completed.
- DAR!: Erika Moen’s naughty, often grotesque diary comic. Now complete, it’s frequently not safe for work. Same goes for her newer project, Oh Joy Sex Toy!
- Shrubmonkeys: Yet another amusing diary comic with a pleasant art style.
