Hiatus D:

I'm sorry to say we're going to have to put Full Circle on hiatus a bit. We're making a big move from one state to another, and with all the craziness I'm just not feeling up to the comic right now, and as a result I think it's showing in the art and layout. I can do better, I know I can. We have a big long story to tell which a lot of love has gone into and I want to do it justice. I want the art quality and the frequency of updates to improve. And we need to step back to make that happen. Once settled in a new place, and taking the time to get a head start on planning the rest of this chapter and onward, will help a LOT. I've given this a lot of thought and it will be good for me AND good for Full Circle.

Hang in, folks. I really do think it will be worth the wait.

In the meantime I really encourage you guys to discuss character development, plot and world design, and more here! I'll be offline altogether for a while towards the end of June, but not for long. So I should still be able to mod here and take care of business. Questions about Full Circle or character development in general are more than welcome too, so ask away.

Again, I am sorry to do this. And at the same time, I know it's the best thing and it WILL be temporary!

Is it nice in your snow storm

Woot, finally happy with the Sphlynx. One down. :) Never done a snowy scene before, really, so this was a fun challenge. Plus this is an awfully cute muse of mine, who manifests as in a few different forms in Full Circle. S/He hasn't shown up yet, but s/he will. But this is what hir spirit looks like.

I'd rather play here With all the madmen For I'm quite content they're all as sane As me

Ever felt like you played or wrote your characters a little differently than the people around you? You may have a disorder called DICD, or Dissociative Imaginative Characterization Disorder. The test below has been designed to assist in self-diagnosis.

LOL! Amarin sent us this test, and KW and I flunked it too. XD The amusing thing is that a lot of my favorite authors have similar issues. For example Niel Gaiman complaining that his characters wouldn't stop going on and on in a pointless dialog that wasn't getting him anywhere. ;) Honestly, I'm very grateful to have this particularly disorder. It's made me a more rounded person. There's a lot of music, foods, concepts, movies, you name it that I'd never have tried or would have been unable to enjoy in the past that these muses have blessed me with. I enjoy a lot more with them around and learn a lot more too. Even if they are difficult, stubborn, and a pain in the butt sometimes. *eyes the brat in the icon* Yeah, that's right, I'm lookin at you, Eryk! Yeah, keep it up and I'll stick you in pantaloons again.

My Dissociative Imaginative Characterization Disorder Diagnosis Purity Test Results

You answered "yes" to 30 of 39 questions, with a total value of 33 points out of 42, making you 21.4% dicd pure (78.6% dicd corrupt).
According to the scoring guide, your dicd experience level is: Seriously DICD: it might be important to remember that those people in your head aren’t actually real. Remember RL? Interacting with real people is occasionally beneficial. In any case, you can’t let the characters forget who’s in charge, or they’ll walk all over you. Maintain your authority, or you’ll never have any peace!
Your Weirdness Factor (AKA Uniqueness Factor) is 21%, based on a comparison of your test results with 208 other submissions for this test.

The average purity for this test is 49.5%.

I keep meaning to post more about character development in this comm, but keep drawing blanks. I've spread myself a bit thin lately too, which doesn't help. But really, if you'd like to see more content over here asking questions and leaving comments helps cause it's then easier to think of things to say. :) I do believe though that the little commentary bits here are helpful in revealing some of the character and world development work that's been done on Full Circle, as well as letting it come out in the story.

Also, I know the chat box on the site is dead. We need to replace it. It doesn't get much use, so we're taking our time. We'd like to redo the whole site, and are currently giving that thought. Again I'm spread pretty thin, so thanks for your patience there!

March 21st

Just a heads up, even though the comic is up on the 21st and I usually do an announcement with commentary here along with, I won't be this time because I'm participating in the One Day March 21st LJ strike. I will, however, post commentary on the 22nd. :) The comic should be up on time in any case.

In the meantime, enjoy a vid by Eryk's favorite band Apocalyptica. (he really enjoys their Metallica covers too)
