Welp, the point in LeftoverSoup where I decided not to read any further ahead has just arrived. Five
strips left, and I'll read 'em honest.

I'm pretty sure I've been sneaking ahead in the archives since the 200s or so. A loooooong time. Even earned myself a boon once for it!

But LeftoverSoup is on its way out and I wanna give it at least a little bit of respect there. It's...important to me.

Approx 995 strips ago, I found the talented and famous @tailsteak and started sending random @-
replies. To my utter shock, he returned them!

That parlayed into chatting on the forum and to sending email* and to one of my best friends in the world and that's really cool.

So, if you've never read LeftoverSoup, now's a great time --you'll likely finish right when the comic does. It's a hell of a run.

...And its creator is a hell of a guy. I can't wait to see what he does next. <3

((*emails --ah, footnote's too long for here, I'll just have to put it in LJ instead.))


Hopefully I'll write a longer memorium sometime later. It's a really fascinating comic, written by a clever and fascinating guy. It ends next Monday, April 10th, and is probably the only webcomic I'll ever read consistently, every update as it updates, for the entire run. ((Skin Horse has already had a healthy chunk in the middle where I stopped reading for a while, and I can't think of very many others I actually started at the beginning.))


*So, Tailsteak is the only person I've ever met who could meet a random womanish** person online, send her a bunch of porn, and parlay that into a six year friendship. He is one suave motherfucker!

((Yes of course there's more detail to that story, but it's more fun without it.))

**For the purposes of being sent internet pornography, I definitely align myself with my female-socialization and...opposite of privilege? Basically, if you send dicks at me, unless you are the aforementioned suave motherfucker above, I am probably going to feel like you're trying to assert male power over me-as-female and feel attacked.

I started reading Leftover Soup the last time you recommended it & have been reading it ever since! Also been cheerfully ignoring the fact that he's been saying it's ending soon too 'cause brooding on it isn't good for my brain1 >.>

I, too, sent him a message or two (email, in my case) about various parts of the strip and was amazed that he responded to me like he knew me or something! Literally never had that happen to me before with an internet web-person. Our conversation ended with me failing to respond the last time because of my aforementioned brain & have always felt vaguely guilty about that but the draft of the response I started sits in my gmail drafts waiting to see if I ever gather enough muster to actually finish it. Doubtful, but Who Knows!

1: I have this Thing in my head in regards to Losing Things... A strip ending is very much like losing a thing to my brain's way of seeing it. Aggravating.

*sigh* Now I really want to play "Rock, Paper, Scissors Chess".

(And yes, that does mean you've inveigled me into reading through an entire webcomic - I'm just trying not to do it all at once so I don't regret the time I should have been doing something else.)

I Blame Kat!

Yesterday I had the headache that was working really hard on becoming a migraine(*). Today my head hurts for a totally different reason and it is all Kat's fault!

So, there I was, reading , which led to , which means werewulf is going to appear in this webcomic.

(*) I almost never get headaches... except when I've got a concussion... or for some unknown reason, for the last three weeks.
