Hey guys! Some news.

-I announced a comic I've been drawing for nearly a year now? Shit, I don't know. Well, it you missed the announcement on the last page, the link for it is in the news if you're curious.

-So school's gonna kill me if I don't take a break from the comic. But a month off would kill me too so I'll just be updating once a week until I graduate. So for about the next four weeks? Preferably on Mondays but I don't really know. I'll try! It'll be worth it for the LbaMM animation, right?

-A question, do any of you have pairings you like outside of Richard and Timothy? If you do, I'd really like to know. No need to feel shy about it! I know the sting of liking unpopular pairings for any fandom. (ProtagonistxDojima, sigh.)

Ha, I wasn't crazy when I thought that comic was yours! I thought I was just losing my mind when I found it at first ^_^"

Yes, it is very worth the animation, and your school is more important anyway.

And as far as pairings, I always thought Timothy and Karen would make a good couple, although tat's not really possible. XD


[Posted by BlueKiwi on April 6th, 2012, 8:22 am]

Lol, Ian is so mean to Timothy.
As for favorite pairings, I like Daniel x Karen.


[Posted by Ilmir on April 6th, 2012, 9:23 am]

Ian, that was just so expected...

I always thought that, if timothy wasn't gay, karen x timothy would be a really funny couple.

But my favorite pairing is by far Daniel x Marker

Also, yu x dojima? That's news to me XD I never really got into shipping persona 4 (and 1) characters

I totally shipped persona 3 and 2 characters, though:

1- shinjiro x FeMC
2- Akihiko x Mitsuru
3- junpei x chihiro
4- tatsuya x jun
5- Ryoji x FeMC
6- tatsuya x maya

long wall of shipping text.


[Posted by sekoshi on April 6th, 2012, 10:33 am]

I think Daniel/Karen would be really cute. ;u;


[Posted by ErrePi on April 6th, 2012, 11:53 am]

@Nat816: Haha, sorry. Also, sexual orientation has never stopped shipping! Hahaha.

@Ilmir: Yu... is that Protagonist's name in the manga? Also, SEE?! You never heard of it! Having an oyajicon is hard sometimes, haha.


Gee, I was expecting more Timothy/Daniel based on some things people said but I guess I was wrong.

Still, really interesting! You guys've given me something to think about. But yeah! Don't stop telling me about them even if someone's already said it! I wanna knoooooow.

Haha. No one likes Karen and her husband.


[Posted by mk_insane on April 6th, 2012, 11:55 am]

Daniel/Kingly Duties
It's my OTP.

I don't generally ship unless I've given some indication that one or more of the characters in the canon is interested ^^;

I love Richard's look of mild surprise.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 6th, 2012, 4:34 pm]

@mk_insane: Haha. I've spent a lot of time with anime in my life where the entire purpose of the characters and their interaction was to give everyone a reason to ship whoever they want.

I think Tales of the Abyss and Vesperia are extremely guilty of that fact. (Graces too but that game is just balls. What a terrible game.)

And then the entire plot is just to lampshade all the romantic tension.

Yup. Nowadays though I'm more like you. Haha.


[Posted by Danny-kins (Guest) on April 6th, 2012, 6:20 pm]

Would it be weird if I'm not shipping anyone else beyond Timothy/Richard? XD Maybe, deep in my mind, I want to ship Daniel/Karen, but I feel like I don't know near enough about them to be certain with it. OTL

Though, the mystery is really key with Daniel (at least I've thought), but I rather want to learn more about Karen. haha :)



[Posted by thryn on April 6th, 2012, 8:59 pm]

T-TIMOTHY sdflhbsdfhlsdfb AHAHAHAHA NICEEEE omggggg


[Posted by Ilmir on April 6th, 2012, 9:32 pm]

@ErrePi: actually, yu narukami is his official name given by atlus (seriously)

It's on the persona 4 fighting game, and on the anime.

On the manga idk, before all that fighting game/anime stuff, people used to call him souji seta

....I actually like yu narukami better

either way, now the only persona character who doesn't have an official name is the protagonist from p3.
People usually call him minato arisato (manga name) I actually call him that way too.

It would be really awkward if atlus gave him a different official name later.


[Posted by The devil couple on April 6th, 2012, 10:02 pm]

Daniel and his wife and husband!


[Posted by ErrePi on April 7th, 2012, 10:25 am]

@Danny-kins: Nah, man. It's not weird at all! Always makes me happy to know people like the characters I made together... together.

Haha, neat. I should probably ask people what they want to know about the characters.

OK, GOOD. We'll support each other through all the jerks that say they couldn't read something 'cause the other guy was too old and hairy!

It's cute, dammit!

@Ilmir: Ah, right. I remember it for the anime but that thing just looked so terrible that I pushed everything about it out of my mind as soon as possible. SMT games are great and that's usually where my focus with the series goes.

Yeah, I always thought Souji Seta was pretty awful but it was mostly 'cause I kept thinking back to Yu-gi-oh.

Yeah. I know Minato Arisato and where it's from.

I guess. Haha. I don't really need a name to love them. Or dialogue or personality associated with them apparently.


@The devil couple: Really? You don't even know anything about them, haha!

But it's cool!


[Posted by bocaj (Guest) on April 7th, 2012, 11:19 am]

I only ship BOATS!


[Posted by Glassy (Guest) on April 7th, 2012, 12:14 pm]

Hehe, I just started reading this comic recently, but I felt a need to post since you asked a question and all. :3

In any case, weirdly enough, I don't really have any ships for this comic. I'm not a big fan of Timothy/Richard (Not that I dislike Timothy, I just want Richard to stay ignorant forever! lol) and as for other pairings, I guess I don't feel enough chemistry in the characters' interactions for it.

Though, I do love Daniel's fatherly/big brotherly interactions with Ian. Does that count as a ship? DanielxIan as a non-romantic family unit. XD


[Posted by Ilmir on April 7th, 2012, 1:51 pm]

@ErrePi: I'm happy to know that i'm not the only one that absolutely hated that anime. It was AWFUL in ways I can't even describe.

Also, raidou kuzunoha is the the best SMT character ever. Raidou >>>> everyone.

(Also, I recently got a copy of devil summoner 1, and I was SUPER EXCITED. It was a super nostalgic time.

then I remembered that my ps2 cooling fan is broken, and I have to change it for a new one.
Now I'm with p3, p4, digital devil saga 1 & 2, devil summoner 1 & 2 and nocturne. And no ps2 to play them.

Karma is a bitch)

I'll eternally fangirl raidou.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 9th, 2012, 1:10 am]

@bocaj: I only ship your mom and me.


@Glassy: Nah, that's cool, that's cool. I was just wondering if anyone had a preference outside the canon.

Also, Richard being ignorant forever is kinda adorable.

Haha. I wouldn't say that's a ship but a good... combination? Hahaha. I do that too. I just like these characters together!

But yeah! That's great to hear!

@Ilmir: Haha, sorry to hear all that. Ah. I wish I had time to play video games. Especially a SMT game, those mothers takes forever.


[Posted by Helix_luco on April 9th, 2012, 1:59 am]

i haven't felt compelled to ship anyone but Timothy and Richard, but i like stories about friendship more than romances. ...which is why my sister and i watch Star Trek looking for evidence Uhura is friends with Mr.Sulu.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 9th, 2012, 5:42 pm]

@Helix_luco: Haha, that's fine. Glad to know just he canon is fine with some people.

Haha, that is cool.


[Posted by anonanon (Guest) on April 10th, 2012, 8:45 am]

shipping ian and his denial for timothy XD too bad livestream was cancelled, get a good rest vi! maybe try everyman sleep cycle, sleep 3 hours with 3 20min naps and still be energetic.google it up!


[Posted by ErrePi on April 10th, 2012, 10:02 pm]

@anonanon: Haha. Cutest. Pairing.

Aw, thanks. Also, I know about that. I always wanted to give it a try but I don't have time to train for it. Haha.

Maybe over the summer.


[Posted by Odd1Out (Guest) on April 11th, 2012, 11:10 pm]

It's alright if you can't update every week considering your busy school schedule. If anything, artists sometimes post up funny rough sketches of their characters, with maybe a message on what date the fans can expect you to be back.
If you post up the LbaMM animation, that'd be awesome. I want to see how you do the characters' individual movements.

As to answer your question...
I haven't thought of any couples beyond Richard x Timothy...at least until now.
There's potential for some Timothy x Daniel considering their love-hate chemistry... although, they'd probably would have to be REALLY DRUNK, to be even slightly plausible. XD;
As for non-romantic pairings... well, Karen having a beautiful bromance (???) with Richard would be good. *nodnod* And how Daniel acts like a father-figure to Ian easily makes one go: TwT ~ <3

As for Persona 4, Dojima was definitely a favorite of mine--partly due to his scruffle. *Laughs*
Older guys + Facial Hair = Good in my Book!
Even better, is if they happen to wear glasses! *Megane fan*


[Posted by ErrePi on April 12th, 2012, 12:18 am]

@Odd1Out: Man. I'd do it if I didn't hate fillers so much. Haha. Which is why LbaMM has so little. One of my least favorite things about going through a comic is when the pacing is suddenly broken by a sick day or something.

Haha, ok, THANK YOU. Someone mentioned Timothy/Daniel! So I'm NOT going crazy. Haha.

I'm not a big fan of pairings that fight either but I know people that do are out there somewhere.

Haha. Karen and Richard? Girrrrrlfriends.

Aw, fuck yeah, dude! Facial hair+older guys.

Hahahahaha. My other comic, A Well Lit Path, is broken up into groups and all of them had one old guy with facial hair and glasses. We had to go through and purge it a bit and get rid of glasses here and there or facial hair on the other one.

It didn't help that they all had dark hair. Hur hur.

I make no excuses for my action.


[Posted by Odd1Out (Guest) on April 13th, 2012, 6:51 pm]

@ErrePi: Ah, fillers and their affects on pacing -- that's one of the odd points about online comics, I'll admit. Even though comics books have 'breaks' (i.e. side illustrations or afterwords), it's not as bad because the reading experience is more immediate and more in the reader's hands (and not their slow Internet browser's control).
Sometimes I can't help but to draw comparisons between technology and holding the actual book in one's hands; both have their strengths and weaknesses (like price accessibility, for instance).
I could probably keep talking about the differences in reading experiences, and how it could be more engrossing or explored. I can't help but to notice stuff like that, and how it affects the storytelling experience.

Ah, and as for drawing your characters with a noticeable trend for facial hair and glasses... haha, I had to "purge" that a bit of it too with my characters. *Laughs*
Have you ever heard of Natsume Ono? Her works feature plenty of older men (gay and straight) who wear glasses or have facial hair. One of my favorite works from her is "Not Simple" although she's known by more famous titles. It's hard to describe her storytelling style, but I do enjoy her subtle characterization.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 13th, 2012, 10:43 pm]

@Odd1Out: Yeah, in terms of comic books versus online, being able to break it up is a huge part. Which is a problem I keep worrying about with LbaMM when I print it.

Haha. Yeah, I love dealing with the shared apartment internet.

Haha. Good to know I'm not the only one with an uncontrollable urge.

Actually, YES. Natsume Ono is actually my favorite BL artist. I've read nearly all her work? But my favorite of hers is definitely her BL work, she writes the greatest one shots.

I actually like her segmented work more but I think "Not Simple" was still pretty effective.

And, man. All those people who say they don't like Ristorante Paradiso 'cause it's too old and gross are wrong! Just wrong! (Though I didn't actually like that one too much, haha. I just like old guys.)

Now that I think about it, Timothy might enjoy her work, haha.


[Posted by Odd1Out (Guest) on April 14th, 2012, 12:33 am]

Huh... so folks complain about 'Ristorante Paradiso,' eh? *Tilts head in thought*
It's different strokes for different folks, haha. There's a storyline for everybody, or if not, one that's waiting to be made by you.

When it comes to media, my interest is often self-contained and privately enjoyed. I'm often one of those fans that arrive late into the game when everybody else moved on. Ah, but at least that leaves plenty of "treasures" for me to dig through. *Grins*
I'm not often involved in the social aspects of fandom so not many directly confront me about my preferences. I've only seen general comments, but I never take them personally since everyone needs to vent every now and then.
As long as those complainers aren't actively getting in my way, like issuing legislation against liking older men, then I've no complaints. As if they can even enforce such a thing! *Laughs*
Imagine someone attempting legislation against liking older men...PFFT. *Shakes head*

I can imagine some of Timothy's potential reactions after reading Natsume Ono's works: "It's such a beautiful love!" or "This man is adorable......but Richard is still number one in my heart."
Ugh...so cheesy, Timothy. So cheesy.
He'd probably read those books when he thinks nobody's looking. Well, unless Daniel discovers it and tease him about it. Haha.


[Posted by ErrePi on April 18th, 2012, 9:44 am]

@Odd1Out: Hahaha, I will fight with my life to keep old people in my BL.

Haha, to be honest, I'm not usually aware of what people read what, But I do talk about these things with a friend of mine who hangs out on anime sites with reviews and shit so she tells me about them and we get angry together, haha. Otherwise I'd be blissfully ignorant.

Hahahahahaha. I think, compared to most yaoi out there, he'd probably enjoy Natsume Ono. One being the age of the guys and then also for the stories.

Ah. I'm having a good time.


[Posted by MegaAnimeFreak7 on August 27th, 2012, 6:19 pm]

I'm just expecting Richard to be all, "Alright MOM. >.>"


[Posted by rattleandhum on December 28th, 2012, 9:33 pm]

i know this is dead but

don't mind me
