I decided a double comic was definitely in order for this final ending of the Ways. I been thinking about it for quite a while. Speaking of things to think about, anybody wonder why Dark Stalker seems to be afraid of the sword? I been thinking about that one too. Question is, should I let you know before the end of Eye of the World or not?

Someone tried to get into my room tonight. My room is connected to another room by a door and at one point while I was making the comic, the door suddenly started making noises like someone was trying to get in. It went on for like 5 minutes and I was totally confused because whomever was on the other side musta been stupid. I have a deadbolt on this side to keep them out, how are they supposed to get in? Well it was definitely an interesting experience.

If you want to know how I fared the storm, go back to the last comic and scroll down to the bottom. Speaking of the last comic, I found it surprising that nobody seems to be particularly enthusiastic about getting a spot on my rant section. Is it the contest? Is it that it's not that great a prize? Does anybody even care? *shrug* I expected at least one entry by today but I got nothing. I guess you all have got until July 25th to see if I get even a single entry. Good luck.

Lets discuss Burnout...:

OK, so what would you do if you were in Burnout's shoes? You find yourself in Randland, circa Book one. What do you do? If you have read the series, you would know what is going to happen and where, would you capitalize on that for your own gain, or would you try to help out Rand and crew?

Randland is a dangerous place, I admit to the temptation of going off to where I know that there would be valueable items ( such as the Hold in the Stone of Tear- you know THAT isn't terribly well guarded...) stealing them, and heading off to hire a Sea Folk Raker. I would be tempted to use the stolen items to buy passage and tell them:

"Head that way." (pointing vaguely South) "There has got to be a tropical island free of Seanchan and Tarmon Gaidon events out there, somewhere..."

The idea of heading off to a tropical island on a boat with a bunch of topless women has its appeal, but I suspect that it isn't what I would REALLY do. I would want to help the good guys. The problem is, I am really not the superheroic type, no matter how much I WANT to be. I would probably just be greasestain #23 if I came across a Myrddraal or the like...

I have some training with swords and spears courtesy of the SCA, but I am no blademaster. I would need special powers like the comic version of Burnout if I were to survive. I mean, come on... the guy is on FIRE with no ill effect or discomfort. If that isn't a superpower, I don't know what is.

...I need a superpower...

Rant Contest:

Very nice, I see people sneaking it in under the wire. And to think, I was afraid nobody wanted to do it ;). Thanks for proving me wrong guys :). Since I love that stuff, anybody who gets it in by tonight will count towards the extra points for having it in by this comic.
Yeah 'Mad, I pondered a lot of the same stuff. During myWoT RPG game, my characters ended up taking a trip back in time to Randland of 20 years in their past to when Rand and them were running around in the books. But for them, they needed to make sure not to screw up the past because that could have dire effects on their future. I personally would fear being in Randland because I know too much. What would happen if I change events and that screws everything up. I'd be more inclined to find a quiet hole somewhere far away and hope I didn't get stabbed or something.

Fantastic Four:

I just got back from the movie, I thought it was really good. Then again, I am the kind of person who goes to see movies to enjoy them. 90% of the time, I don't care whether or not there were bad parts or whatever. If I was interested, I enjoyed it. It was an interesting experience for me really.
Some of you may have searched around the site, found my bio, wondered why or maybe found out why the original site was called I have two good buddies whom I have known for over a decade(which is starting to scare me cause I swear it was just yesterday that we hit the decade mark). For the sake of the internet, these two buddies are named Darknight and Magius.
Since the beginning, we have fallen into the roles our names imply. Darknight is the fighter, Shadowkiller is the rogue, and Magius is the wizard. Thats the way we are, that's the way we've always been. We consider ourselves soul brothers, as there is no other way to signify the bond. It doesn't matter what happens, we will always be there for one another. We've always known that when we get older and each of us gets a family, our families will know one another, our wives will be friends, we are bonded at more then a social level.
Life isn't always like fantasy though. Darknight was a football player and a wrestler in highschool, but since then his ways have turned more technical and he has lost a lot of the physical power he once had. I was a jack of all trades, friends with everyone, could do anything, but master of nothing. Since I have been forced to change my ways, to learn a trade, to be good at it, but much have I lost because of it. Magius has excelled at everything he does. As far as I am concerned, he is the one that is doing what he does best, and he will have his PhD in Physics. But he has left me and Darknight for Seattle.
Each of us has also had our relationships. Some of us more then others, some more intense, but each of us has also been hurt. There was one point where each of us had a girlfriend whom we cared for deeply. The time was good, it felt right. Only one of those girls even remotely stuck around, and that was mine. We had become good friends, she was probably the only one of the three who had a chance of being one of those wives we dreamt about, but I had some serious issues at the time. I speak of her at times as Dea.
As I watched the Fantastic Four tonight, I saw a group of four people, three guys and a girl. Each of the guys seemed to hold characteristics of two of us three. The Thing is big and strong, yet seems to be very timid at times. This seemed to be more of Darknight and Magius. The Human Torch, while physically much like myself, has a daredevil personality and an awesome charisma much like Darknight. Mr. Fantastic has the brains of Magius, but when it comes to many of the other things, including stupidity with relationships, he falls under my umbrella.
As for the Invisible Girl, she reminds me so much of Dea. She stayed with me for so long even though I was a total moron. And then she got tired of waiting, moved on with her life, and I feel she became someone else. Maybe she has, maybe she hasn't, I can't tell. The only thing I never got from her was an explanation of what I did wrong. There were so many things that I can think of, but appologizing and trying to make up for it doesn't seem to be working. I'm not sure if there is even a chance of winning her over again.
Maybe all it means is that I should move on, grow up a little, learn that change is good. Maybe I should just forget about her, even though I don't want to. Maybe we need to be put into a situation where we can release our pent up anger and aggression and get it all out into the open so that we can heal. Maybe there is nothing more to us then a maybe, and I dwell on the past far too much.
All I know is that I can't take it anymore. I need to move on and learn to live again. I can't be making a stupid ass of myself just because I don't know how to act. Life is a potato, cold and boring unless you cook it(I just made that up ;)). Figured I'd share, thanks.
