I am writing the fuck out of this thing. Just because I’ve never written these guys before, they mean SO MUCH TO ME and writing them interacting is fun as fuck. Here’s the first bit. It’s like 10 pages now but this first bit is only a few pages. IF YOU SHIP TERRA x EDGAR or at least like Edgar being awkward you should enjoy this. I’ll upload more later. WISH ME LUCK AT JOB TOMORROW.

“You know what, I can’t keep hiding from this page and I think it’s long past time that I stopped being so damn apologetic about it.
It’s a bad page. In fact, it is a TERRIBLE page for numerous, insurmountable, cumulative reasons but you know what, I didn’t write it. And it’s not bad because I didn’t write it, it’s bad for other reasons many of which I helped contribute to. This page single-handedly encapsulates what was wrong with the Sonic comic both verbally, artistically and editorially (yeah, I said it) back in the day.
I was told to draw Sally slapping Sonic, so that’s what I did. I was a freelance artist. I get paid to interpret scripts via art. If the script tells you to draw a character like they are blacking out and slappin’ the taste out of someone’s mama’s mouth then you draw that character slapping the taste out of someone’s mama’s mouth and then some.
I remember putting my all into this page and trying to really convey a lot of force into that slap. And its weird too, ‘cause outside of the electrical force coming off of it — that’s all I drew in that panel. Given my penchant for overdoing everything when I first started, that nothing is was shown there is a very small and glorious miracle.
I guess I must’ve succeeded in spades with that scene because somehow the entire Sonic comic community cracked itself in half, launched itself into the sun and then collapsed into itself like a black hole because I still see the colored version of this image along with Sally’s crazy-cat-lady-style tirade get posted up everywhere like the fandom equivalent of a scarlet letter. But you know what?
I wear that scarlet letter proudly because, regardless of the motives behind it, regardless of the fervor it caused and regardless of the rancor it still incites Archie Sonic fans with to this day — that, in the end, is what art (bad or good which is subjective depending on the eye of the beholder) is supposed to do. It’ll make you care about the characters. And the results of this page either made many fans either realize they’d stopped caring altogether OR made other fans realize that things needed to change and soon. So I guess that’s exactly what this page, warts and diarrhea and abnormally giant head-eating Sally and all accomplished and still does.
(OR some just kept reading like nothing ever happened — and that is just fine too.)
The perspective is weird, Sonic’s arm turns to rubber in one panel for whatever reason, Sally’s boobs are pronounced and looking like they’re about to lactate like there’s no tomorrow — SO MUCH WRONG WITH THIS — but, for me, the focal point always keeps going back to that slap. That’s the key focus on this page and, for better or worse, it did what it set out to do and then some.
And when people make fun of it online, I ain’t mad at that either, ‘cause now I know better and deep down, I make fun of it too.”
I always thought that was some crazy overreacting on Sally’s part, but I never blamed you, Jon. We love you Jon. :) (and are jealous of you cuz we wanna draw for the comic and get mocked mercilessly by people who don’t bother to understand us or our work either)
The legendary coin toss cliche. Cliche plot twist says that the coin will have two heads.
SEE WHAT I’M SAYING
HOW THE HELL CAN PEOPLE THINK HE’S A DICK HE’S SO SELFLESS SAFSDFASDF
For the... both of us, you're gonna live. My honor... and my dream , they're all yours now. You're the proof of my existence.
I just don’t understand the people who think he’s this huge dick. He obviously wanted Terra to join the resistance, but he made it incredibly clear that it was entirely up to her. When Banon tried to attack her at the Returner hideout, Edgar stuck up for her.
Sabin says to her that she can trust Edgar implicitly. He protected her all the way up to the second time she sees that Esper, and he was clearly pretty concerned for her afterward too. (He was all “get away from that thing! D:” when it started to glow)
Yeah he has problems with keeping it in his pants but that doesn’t mean he completely disrespects women, per se. He never seems like he perceives them as weak or beneath him. He just really likes them. All of them. XD
I dunno. After his initial hitting on her, he never pervs on her again and becomes more like a mentor to her. I DUNNO. I SHIP IT A LOT.
In other news here’s what I do when I write fanfic: I stew over it for like two days and then I write two pages and I’m all “this is boring who would even want to read this”

The service will be called Kindle Worlds, and here’s how it works: Amazon has purchased the licensing rights to shows/books like Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and more. People can write their fan fiction based on these properties and make them available on Amazon legally (on Kindle, obviously) —but more importantly they can sell them. Proceeds will go to the rights-holders, and if the authors’ works consists of over 10,000 words, the authors get the standard book royalty rate of 35% of total sales.
Hey Jenn lol you think G*R is over 10,000 words? Bahahaha. No but seriously…
I WILL JUST CHANGE ALL THE CHARACTERS’ NAMES TO MATCH GOSSIP GIRL CHARACTER NAMES.
THIS PLAN IS FLAWLESS
i actually do wonder how many words it is jesus
Sadly looking at the content rules they don’t allow pornography
- Pornography: We don’t accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts.
I was thinking of you too Jenn when I read this, but now I’d kinda love to see your story written with all the Gossip Girls characters. lol
WHO EVEN READS FANFICTION WHERE THE CHARACTERS DON’T FUCK. THAT’S THE WHOLE POINT OF IT
I don’t know anything about Gossip Girl Dib would probably be the blonde one
