Okay. So I’m a tad embarrassed that there hasn’t been a new News post since the Pair-a-Thon last year. It’s a little awkward seeing them back to back, but that’s what happens when you can post news with every comic. Heh.
Anyway! The 6th Pair-a-Thon has been going on, even if this post took over a month to post. But! Here’s your official rules post, and where you’ll find the links to the entries. I’ve decided to post everything at once this year–On the 10th!–to shake things up.
So get that entry in while you still can! Thanks guys! And official rules are repeated for you below the cut. Good luck everyone!
EDIT: ENTRIES AND WINNERS ARE UP! CHECK THEM OUT HERE! :D
That’s right! The Pair-a-Thon is here for round five! Few changes this year, mostly revolving around the prizes, but that shouldn’t change the core fun of it! :D
Let the Forth Annual Adventures of Wiglaf & Mordred Pair-A-Thon Begin!
WINNERS HAVE BEEN POSTED!!
EDIT: It was a close call this year, but the winners are up & we’re good to go until the 6th Pair-a-Thon! :D Thanks so much for entering everyone! It was a small, but really fun year. :3
See Below the Cut for more rules and information!
I wrote a book. I know I said I wasn’t going to shove it down people’s throats, but I was strongly encouraged to post it somewhere that will hang around for a while…and since I almost never update the blog, this seemed like a good enough place to do one more shameless bit of advertising:
Here’s the original message I posted on a comic update:
CHILDREN OF HEPHAESTUS : Yandere androids, a killer complete with an eye obsession, a disgruntled detective, and engineers thrown into parenthood–there’s a bit of everything in this sci-fi/horror novel. It’s more serious than WaM though, and leans more toward the mid to older-teen level of reading–so fair warning that it’s not for all of you WaM fans. :3 However, if it looks up your alley, I’d be happy if you checked it out! (Kindle Here, Paperback Here!)
Also, it’s got an entry on Goodreads if you want to add it to your To-Read list! :D
Also, since it’s been forever and a day that I last updated the fanart & fanfic page–I figured I should tell you I did it.
I updated the fanart and fanfic page. :D
Been putting that off since February. Whoo. Now go read my book.
It’s Easter! A time to be thankful for Christ and all he does (though really, that’s a daily thing…) and because of that I’m in a really good mood, so…here’s a special treat:
I got off my lazy bum and updated some stuff around the site!
I’m now officially caught up with updating the fanart page & the fanfiction page (if you don’t see yours and you sent it…resend it. I may have missed it), and I managed to get up Benjamin & Éclat’s cast pages.
Productive-ness, go! :D
And now for a soapbox aimed at the Manga fans out there since you’re more likely to read it here than my blog! Because no one reads it! XD I’m not sure how many of you this actually affects, but as an avid manga reader myself I’m sure a few of you out there are, too.
Also, agree or not, I’m not here to argue with you and am unlikely to really discuss this in the comments–I just want you to be aware of alternatives & my opinion on the entire thing. This topic has been bothering me lately and I just need to get it out there.
Please do not use Manga Aggravators (online manga/comic readers or mass download sites that run on pirated material & ads). Don’t even visit them.
Once upon a time, Scanlations were pretty much the only way to get manga that wasn’t super mainstream like One Piece or Naruto (aka anything Viz or Tokyopop picked up). To everyone’s delight–publishers listened/noticed what fans wanted and started to print smaller run one-shot manga that were popular with Scanlators (Like DMP Books & the Blu Division of Tokyopop)–and that was awesome. The anime/manga industry is one of the few entertainment industries doing things the right way and listening to fans (which you can also see with Simulcasts on sites like Funimation & Crunchyroll).
