[indulging in extra-feedback poll, nearly 2 YEARS after first planting seeds of this, gah] GND#245, and a certain person's course of action....

Un éditeur aurait dit récemment : "les auteurs vont devoir trouver un second métier s'ils veulent survivre". Bon... Ok. Mais ce second métier, ce sera encore de la BD, ce sera en local, en auto-édition collective, selon un modèle alternatif, coopératif, solidaire. À Lyon nous tentons l'expérience, en commençant par un journal mensuel proposant des histoires lyonnaises racontées par des auteurs lyonnais. Puis nous passerons à d'autres projets, d'autres idées, d'autres publications. Nous voulons ici, en local, un outil d'édition qui réintègre l'auteur dans un tissu social de proximité, parce qu'on peut faire notre métier autrement qu'au travers de l'édition de masse à l'échelle nationale, voire internationale. C'est un pari, et si ça vous parle, n'hésitez pas à rejoindre ceux qui ont déjà choisi de nous soutenir.

et j'en suis !

en plus d'une bande-annonce en vidéo, vous pouvez déjà lire l'intégralité du premier recit BD.

Ce n'est pas dans ce style-là que j'ai fait mes planches, mais j'ai quand meme travaillé en tradi, pour changer, à l'encre sépia...

English information on Deviation linked above ^ We need help kickstarting a really cool self-publishing venture with a bunch of other Lyon-based artists. If your French is up to it, there's a nifty presentation video and the entire first issue digitally viewable on our fundraiser page. :)

Thanks for your time!

(PS. just FYI, the Austin meet-up plans fell through in the end, alas.)

Hoping delays are due to positive intrusion of real life for you!

You know...with the number of Guy-likes-girl-but-girl-rebuffs-him (or is clueless), lost love, unrequited love themed characters in GND...I'm wondering if Snape is going to show up at some point...
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2015  Professional General Artist
Point... ish. OTOH Lily Potter is kinda ... well, she spends more time being a motivator/important by her death, than alive on-screen as a character, so I'm not sure she gets a post-canon Building ressucitation, y'know? AsheRhyder went into a bit more detail on that theme.
Snape may cameo yet but I've no inclination to add him to the main roster, nor as a sympathetic lovelorn stalker-suitor.

Makes sense. 

To be honest, despite his fixation on Lily, he strikes me as the least likely to stalk her at this point even if they were in your story.  He seems to have in the books allowed his self loathing to convince him he wouldn't have deserved her in the end anyways.  So he probably would have been the snarky voice of reason "I can't force her to love me, so I won't try" sort of guy that just bums people out by loving her from afar while hating her husband XD.  I mean, he was a wizard in canon who knew and practiced a ton of dark spells and yet it seems he never once considered using magic to force Lily  to love him, so he seemed pretty set from the get go on the idea that she would never be his (It sounded like his expectations for her when first asking Dumbledore to save her was less dark magic forcing love and more "I'm all she's got, so maybe without James she would grow to love me).

So yeah, he  makes a good self pity type, but a pretty bad stalker considering he stopped thinking she would love him long ago XD

Fair points. Thing is, regardless of the fact he has been "rewarded" with a new love interest, here in GND Erik had kinda reached that point of fatalistic glum acceptance that he wasn't going to be getting the girl, and Jareth reacted verrry poorly to the notion.

And... I know we're dealing with non-Good characters and I may be a mite hypocritical because i do dabble in such tropes with the Goblin King, but dang, getting cookies for "coulda love potion'd his unwilling love interest but didn't!" is.... underwhelming a moral accomplishment.

If you started a patreon for more frequent GND updates I'd pay up. It'd probably be the only patreon I'd pay to x_x I'm going through withdrawal here

Not quite so long now.
SanzosKitten Featured By Owner Edited Jun 29, 2015
I'm going to second this. I know with the color being added right now I'd also be willing to pay up to a second patreon for that artist for while that's going too.

Just re-read GND in its entirety and remembered the box under Jareth's bed (pg 200 SQUEE) AND WE STILL DONT KNOW WHATS IN THERE?! AGHH...does that come back as a plot point, or even just a gag? XD
