FOUR YEARS!!! (plus a week or two)
So, as I mentioned Tuesday, I totally forgot that Far Out There turned 4 years old this month until over a week too late. I still wanted to do some kind of special page, but how could I incorporate the whole "forgotten birthday" element into it? Well, if any character in Far Out There were going to suffer the indignity of a forgotten birthday, it'd be the doormat of the universe: Jenna. Right?

But SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP, THAT'S THE SADDEST THING I'VE EVER DRAWN. Heck, it's so sad that, as soon as I finished it, I had to go and draw THIS to make myself feel better. And, in case you were wondering, no. This page is not canon. Jenna endures a lot of crud in her daily life, but I refuse to believe that even her own mother wouldn't remember her birthday.

(Also, if that wasn't bad enough, my original idea for this page was even WORSE. Instead of a big, empty room, I toyed with having the whole place decked out with elaborate party decorations. The idea being that Jenna had invited a whole bunch of people to a big birthday party and nobody showed - which I find even more heartbreaking than straight-up forgetfulness. Thankfully, there wasn't time to do anything so elaborate, and it's a good thing. I'd have needed to draw, like, TEN happy pictures to feel better after something like that...)

Jenna Hector: Woobie (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheWoobie)

I'm surprised that no one's created an entry for her yet.

I saw this update a few hours ago when I checked the site on my phone so couldn't reply then but want you to know that you made what was so far a nice day for me a bit depressing. I hope you are happy.

Also, I'm so glad not cannon, because if it was I'd... actually I don't know what I would have done.
At least there was the hug on DA.

@reynard61: Yes, I am also surprised Jenna isn't there yet... Ever since she was introduced people's comments have basically been that she should have a hug whenever she appears.

Hey, at least you didn't have to be the one to DRAW it.

Anyway, while I totally agree with Jenna's Woobiedom, I personally try to avoid adding anything to a trope that's in the Repair Shop. Don't wanna look like we're part of the problem, ya know? (Still, you're totally right)

(throws desk aside and stand up heroicly.) there is a birthday that needs saving and someonee who needs a hug. (gose off to spend life savings on great gifts and get a massive group of good people for jennas birthday, and hire a nice venue.)

@respectful fan:
If you organise a party and send me an invite, if I can make it I'd be happy to supply the hugs.

On a different note, if this page was canon it still wouldn't be her worst birthday - I refer you to page 327.
