Mt. Denali VS Mt. McKinley

A little long, I know- But I had to get this out. Ohio is making a bill that would void the name change, and they're gathering fuel from people who don't know that full story. Which is pretty much everyone. So all I ask is people just be INFORMED.

Thank you,

Possibly Some Help?

I’ve been getting a lot of messages asking where my next comics are. Sorry folks, I’ve got a lot on my plate. I will say this though, I am actively trying to write and if anyone’s interested in my work, I’d be grateful if you’d check it out. 

Just smile and Nod’s Genres are: Young Adult, Physiological, Adventure, Suspense, Abuse,  and (possibly, I haven’t quite decided the extent though..) Young Love.

(Skipping straight to story)Prologue 
(Cover/Table Contents) Summary:

I guess the only story I am actively updating at this point is “Just Smile and Nod”. I had a Sci-Fi “Project: Decent” that I really wanna try and publish- but I don’t think a publisher will want it if it’s already posted entirely on a site, so for now it’s on hiatus. Basically I want to advance my writing skills on J.S.N first.

So yeah- if no one minds, I’d appreciate any thoughts or critiques on my stories (You can comment here don’t worry.)

My other works aren’t high on my concern list, they’re just fun ramblings.

As for comics- I should hopefully be soon updating a new comic for everyone- Don’t worry.

When I was Little, Part IV

Also seen on Imgur @:

Okay kiddies, rant time.

So I’ve received some messages that this story could not possibly be true because as "Septic Tank Experts"- it’s impossible to back up a toilet in the second story via the septic tank. *SIGH*.

Here’s the thing, I’m not debating physics. But telling me, a real memory of my childhood did not happen because you’re going off a diagnosis I made in my comic above… is a little laughable, don’t you think?

Allow me to enlighten you;

Firstly, this comic is a recollection (I am 23 now) of what happened when I was little. I WAS 10 YEARS old. So, my point of this is…  you are taking my half remembered fears (oh god the septic tank must be backing up)… and grading me on it as if to see if I got the answer right.

Duh, I didn't know what was 100% accurately happening in technical terms. I was ten, you twats. And yet I’ve been getting messages of people scoffing at me, saying a septic tank backing up on the second story is IMPOSSIBLE, so YOU ARE A LIAR.

I googled… you know, just to know if there are other liars out there, and guess what? The search “My toilet on the second story is backing up” has hundreds upon hundreds of hits. Simply put, the main line is clogged and backing up the toilet causing murky shit water to spill over.  The clogs can happen on any level, and depending on how far away from the actual toilet they are determines how much back water you get spilling over. Oh hey now, that sounds oddly familiar.

The end.

See though? See how easy that was?

Using common sense and such. We’re getting places guys! 

Shit like this DOES happen (pun intended). But for the love of god, don't hold your fucking breaths to see if I correctly and accurately discern a problem and draw it accordingly in a web comic. 

 Who cares if I misdiagnosed the mechanics behind the back up? (heaven forbid, I know. I am the devil). 

But now I’m faced with ignorant messages from people saying my whole story has become void because I said the septic tank backed up, and not the deep clog in the main lines got backed up. 

For fucks sake.
I'm afraid of you lot. I’m afraid that you take everything (even a ten year old memory) as the most literal fact there ever was. Like I sat there, a 10 year old girl, diagnosing the toilet and its issues. 

Unless its correctly laid out in front of you, you don't seem to be able to create conclusions or assumptions about what  probably happened. 

Toilets back up on any story of the house.
But the septic tank wouldn't cause any of the higher elevated problems. That's due to blockage and/or other drains (like the washing machine) draining into it and clogging it.

When I was little Part III

RIP Grandma, you magnificent woman you. 
Aw and yes, I actually have dark brown hair. But I am lazy and just don’t like coloring in my comics- sorry if that shifts your reality.  I think all in all, I played with it for a whole 7 months. This is the key here peeps, because you don't get mercury poisoning by just touching that broken thermometer. It takes constant exposure, and the right temperatures (for its vapor to release) for it to harm you. Your skin surprisingly doesn't absorb it like you think.

I say this because I am getting a bunch of messages from people self-diagnosing themselves after reading my comic.

If you really feel that Mercury was the cause of your migraines… then you need to go to a neurologist and get diagnosed with it to be helped. Otherwise, please refrain from telling people that you too got mercury poisoning, because there’s nothing I hate more than people who use unfounded diagnosis they got off the internet. Don’t disrespect the illness like that and just assume because I was medically diagnosed with it- that’s what’s wrong with you too. GO SEE A DOCTOR and get a professional’s opinion. That’s what I did.
And finally, please remember my gran grew up in a different time, she meant no harm. I loved her to death and feel no ill will towards her. Please be respectful.

Glow-Stick Ghost

Also seen on Imgur @:

I don’t remember if the glow sticks at the party were the toxic kind or not- but honestly- I never felt sick afterwards so that’s good. That or (already having mercury poisoning) my body just doesn’t give a fuck anymore.

I’d say I broke about 30 of them since my friend Chris (who threw the party) worked at a Party Supply Store and he bought a whole box of them with his discount. And he bought a lot.

For those asking YES THEY DID STAIN ALL MY CLOTHES so don’t do it (even with the nontoxic ones) unless you are prepared to ruin an old T-shirt.

Also, the reason I broke a bunch of them is because after about ten minutes of open air, they lose their glow. So being drunk as shit and sitting next to a box of a seemingly unlimited supply…..

Well you get the point.

Any more questions?

When I was little, Part I

I was a little bastard. This comic was done because my first one "Potty Parking" was a hit. Anyone else got stories like this? I read through the comments on my last post and couldn’t stop laughing at them. It’s honestly comforting to know I am not alone.

Potty Parking (The Prequel to "When I was little" Series)

I'm 22 now. I still half cry half laugh myself to sleep. Children can be so oblivious but so... point blank. I was planning on making a confession bear- but there wasn't enough room to explain myself. So I made this. And yes, in case anyone wants to know- this really did happen.

Forever Alone Guy- Origins

Yeah, this was a super old sketch collection I did when I got bored. Like my other long comic-story TWICE, this was colorized and pieced together via my iphone. Not what the ap was ever intended to do but its the closest thing my cheep ass will ever come to photoshop.

** I have tried to go through and re edit the font, but due to the size of this story- I can not upload  it as a PNG image (which keeps it clean and pretty), but only as a JPEG Image (Which pixelates the text, but it makes it capable of uploading.)

If this story was smaller, I wouldn't have a problem, but unfortunately I draw too much.
