FINALLY! Sorry about the crazy delay, guys, but between work, walking to and from work, convincing myself that it's worth getting up in the morning, and occasionally sleeping, it's getting harder and harder to find time to draw anything. Which is why I had to go back to just inking the rough draft for this one, unfortunately. And with Intervention comming up next week, it looks like I'll have to keep doing that for a while.

And speaking of things that are late, I'm afraid there's no Voting Incentive right now. I mean, I've got it drawn and everything, but for some reason Photobucket doesn't feel like loading new files at the moment. Thank you very much, technology. Things have been going so smooth and uneventful lately, I needed something to go wrong. Just for variety, a know?

Ohh, so many good facial expressions. Layla's embarrassed, Ichabod's mocking, Trigger's never-failing concerned, and Avatar's "You're still evil" face. :D

Oh, how inconsiderate of me. I hope your life gets more organized so you can relax...
... But does that ever happen for you?

Blitzkrieg1701, September 14th, 2012, 11:40 pm

Does that ever happen for ANYBODY?

Still, I am really pleased with how all the expressions turned out. The whole reason I WANTED to draw each panel separately was to make sure I didn't screw up any details, but I guess the important stuff came through anyway, huh?

EDIT: Sorry I haven't updated the Fan Stuff page, but Photobucket's problems are messing that up too.

Seros Senric (Guest), September 15th, 2012, 7:02 am

I like it how Ichabod's nitpicking instincts kick in on the first panel :P
Although he does look a bit too pleased with himself in that last panel...

Layla, I hope you learned not to mess with grey goo.

And yes, the facial expressions are good on this page.

Also, I hope that technology decides to work a little more in your favour in the immediate future.

Stick (Guest), September 15th, 2012, 7:15 am

As expected, when one goes against the nitpicker, one must be ready to lose "it" all. XD

Blitzkrieg1701, September 15th, 2012, 1:16 pm

It's hard to come up with excuses to have Layla and Ichabod interacting with each other, which is a shame 'cos it's always entertaining. The both know EXACTLY how to get on the other's nerves.

Antonio (Guest), September 15th, 2012, 8:07 pm

And again it must fall to me to carry the sad duty that etc.
"Hated out guts"?

Also, excelent incentive as usual. Thanks for getting to it even going against technology itself.

Blitzkrieg1701, September 15th, 2012, 11:23 pm

Fixed! Thank you!

Seros Senric (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 1:57 am

@Antonio: Of course, if we mentioned mistakes instead, what would keep you commenting?

Incentive: Of course it is. What else could it possibly be? There's no chance at all of anything going wrong.

Also, I see you added CarrotSticks' stuff to the fan page.

Antonio (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 3:36 pm

No, thank you, for fixing things. For showing that you care. This comic seems very much worth caring about.

Also, how do you make a comment be a reply? I had thought it'd be a registered user thing, but here I was notified for Seros Senric's reply. Unless he (she?) registered with "(Guest)" as part of the name, I guess.

Stonefoot, September 16th, 2012, 8:50 pm

Comment Title
Actually life does get more organized periodically, and the reason actually is so that you can relax... because then you let your guard down and... BWA-HA-HA-HA!!!!

Also, rushed or not, the art on this page is very good, IMHO.

And @Seros Senric: True there's no chance at all of anything going wrong. There is, however, a definite chance of everything going wrong. BWA-HA-HA-HA!!!! (Oh, wait, I already said that. Oops!)

Blitzkrieg1701, September 16th, 2012, 9:33 pm

D'awww thanks for all the kind words, guys!

Also, I honestly don't know how a "reply" would be different from any other comment. I don't see any button to that effect when I'm logged in, and I've never gotten a notification like that myself. IT'S A MYSTERY!

Seros Senric (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 10:23 pm


I don't have a registered account at (although sometimes I think I should), but replies are effectively just using at sign name colon, pretty sure. Like I have at the top of this message.

I would have got a reply notification from Stonefoot there I imagine, if I had bothered to enter my email address.

Antonio (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 10:27 pm

@Seros Senric

Testing. This would be dumb of the programmer if it works, though.

Also, I just realized I'd like to know; why 1701? Somehow I doubt you are three hundred and thirteen years old...

Seros Senric (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 11:37 pm

Well, it notified me that time, since I did give it my email address.

I must admit, I am a bit curios about his 1701 as well...

Antonio (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 11:42 pm

@Seros Senric
Well, that is good to know I guess. Now, how to exploit this...

Also, that was three hundred and eleven, sorry. I realized while in the shower.

Blitzkrieg1701, September 17th, 2012, 7:24 am

Way back when I was a young pup and started picking e-mail addresses and the like, I needed to tack some sort of number on the end of the name. "1701" is the registry number of The Enterprise on Star Trek, so that seemed as good a number as any.

Seros Senric (Guest), September 17th, 2012, 8:03 am

So it was the NCC-1701? I did notice that but didn't think it was the reason.
But yeah, a good a number as any.

MrTTAO, September 17th, 2012, 10:49 am

He is supposed to be picking on nits not picking on little girls...

err. how OLD are they btw?

Blitzkrieg1701, September 17th, 2012, 1:47 pm

Heh, see this is why I need to hurry up and finish the FAQ, 'cos that's one of the questions it answers (look for the FAQ topic in The Forum)

I'm trying to avoid giving specific ages of any of the characters, just so there's plenty of wiggle room if I want to change anything later (example: Trigger and Layla were supposed to be the same age when the comic started, but since I never SAID so, it was easy to change). Just for conversation purposes, though, Layla's in her mid-to-late teens, while Ichabod's probably in his early-to-mid 30s. Until I decide otherwise, obviously.

Stonefoot, September 17th, 2012, 6:47 pm

Well, I initially assumed that 1701 was the registry number of the Enterprise, and when I found out otherwise I kept quiet. But since it has come up I must reveal that out beloved author/artist was actually born in 1701. (B.C.) So, remembering that there was no year zero, he is actually 3712 years old. Almost as old as I am. (But I'm not telling. Just lying.) :-0

Blitzkrieg1701, September 17th, 2012, 9:39 pm

Well, to be honest, calculating my "actual" age is very difficult, what with all the time travel involved. :)

Seros Senric (Guest), September 18th, 2012, 12:35 am

I know what you mean with that. Even only counting my current incarnation, with the time travel, time dilation, and other phenomena it's easy to lose track.
