The screaming, on the other hand, was probably a bad sign.

(From... wow. From lots of stuff... Okay, I'll list. In order, it's Least I Could Do, Starslip Crisis, and goats. And Melonpool is mentioned. And the one above is from The Splendid Everlasting. And in case you were wondering, the title of the post is a Digger reference.)

To start out, I'd like to say that Digger is free right now. If you haven't read it, read it. If you have read it, reread it. It's much fun.

Okay, in case you didn't notice, I haven't posted anything here in a while. A while being... let's just leave it at 'a while', shall we? This is not because I no longer am feeling the love for y'all, but rather because school generally sucks, and I barely have time to read webcomics, much less write about reading them. So this is a probably vain attempt to cover everything that has especially caught my eye both today and over the past weeks.
Anydangway, this leaves me with lots to say and not a lot of time to say it in, so I'll attempt to be brief. First up is Least I Could Do. This strip is from today, and it made me stop and think for a second. In this storyline we've had an interesting view of Rayne going from being mildly offput by his long-lost sister and niece to truly growing fond of the little girl. They shot people with Nerf guns in Wal-Mart, quoted Star Wars, learned swear words, and insulted people, and somewhere in the middle of it he found himself attatched to his new niece. His line as he is about to leave underscores the contrast of his character. "When you're older, stay away from guys like me." He has no illusions about his behavior, but, on some level, he really does care about those he is close to.

It's good stuff, all in all.


...yeah. Straub has me seriously on tenderhooks here. Nothing much to say about this. Read Gilead Pellaeon's post about the many mysterious forces acting on our intreped heroes and the rising tension of the situation during the party, climaxing at this point as Jovia and her father are trapped in the pod that's about to fire its engines without disengaging. He pretty much covers all the bases.
Nextly: goats.

Yeah, it's an old strip, but I just want to say that it made me laugh so hard that the person next to me in study hall hit me and told me to shut up.

...Just thought you'd like to know.

Also, I wanted to express my *joy* that Melonpool updated again today. I'd been missing my comicky goodness from that particular angle.

Aaaaaand... yeah, I think I'm done. Go to bed.
