Somedays are better than others, I guess that's life.



Haha, gawd, I SWEAR I didn't concieve of this to be such a sad post until it all came out.
I do have a dark sense of humor and I think it's exaggerated in dark times.

Anyway. I miss you guys! I wanna come back.

Here's what's been going on, STILL no one is sure about the future of PAS. We're all hopeful and helpless. In the meantime I've been painting alot and reacquainting myself with the friends I avoided while I mourned.
I've been seeing clients privately and so far that's working out quite well so, this may become the story of an independent Dominatrix, instead of one working from a dungeon.

Except, not anytime soon. I still have scripts to last us a year or more and I'm not prepared to abandon my beloved dungeon-gal characters. Perhaps someday in the future, when it's not so raw, Nic will relive what's been going on here in reality...

But, for now, I wanna get us back to my fantasy world. I may post one or two more moody reflections of the times and I don't promise consistancy in coloring or style but if you'll give me that then I'll get us back to our regularly scheduled program.

Somedays are better than others, I guess that's life.

Oh, and PS, I totally got all of your amazingly kind posts and emails from all over the web. I responded to very few, I know, but trust me, you all warmed my heart deeply, just knowing you were out there listening.

Hahaha, damnit! And here I'd hoped you'd forgotten!

I suspect we have similar senses of humor... this didn't even strike me as a dark piece until you pointed it out, I just thought it was funny.

I'm really glad to see you back to work. And I'm kind of digging the shaved head on the real version of the caricature of your real self who is not to be confused with the caricature fantasy version of your kind of real self... wait now I'm confused again.

I really like your new hair and the way you are drawing it :o)

Nic said...

Thanks!

I've missed having it this way. And it grows freakishly fast! I'm already dark and fuzzy!

Glad to see you back Nic.

arlena said...

Yay! i have missed the laughter. *sends friendly hugs* i'd say welcome back but you never left. i like the dark humor, and the silly humor. You've just got a wonderful sense of humor. :-)

Josh said...

Glad to see you back in some form. I'd have been so sad to have lost the quirky antics of lovable little Nic. ;)

Nic said...

I miss you, too, Lace!

If it makes you feel better, when I went in to get my stuff the drawing was still there, unharmed. :)

I have always been confused about the characters. Are the other women really your co-workers? You just changed their looks/names or did none of those women realy exist?

Nic said...

None of the characters in the comic are 100% real people. I chose not to directly imitate my actual coworkers to avoid hurt and backlash. ("Why did you make ME the bitchy one?!" "That didn't happen the way you wrote it!" "My butt isn't that big!!!!") Plus, I worked/work with over 40 women and that's TOO many characters. I didn't want girls feeling left out and blah blah blah I could go on.

So what I did, instead, was take looks and aspects of every girls personality and physicality and compound them all into a set of characters that I could work with for every situation. Most of the comics are based on actual happenings, some are just from my head. I usually try to distinguish which is which in my commentary. :)

I hope that helped!

Nic,
I wish that I had been reading this comic when this first happened. I know this is 2 years later, but I can only say that with the support of those who love and care for you life does go on and good times will be had by all. Life is a journey with storms and heavy seas as well as gentle swells and sunny days. From another twin(May 25), you seem like someone I would love to know.

If it makes you feel better (and if you still read these comments), metahumour and dark metahumour like this installment are fun ^_^
