For all the shit we talk about the culture of fandom, shipping, and all the recurring problems that may emerge from it, I just want to make it clear that I think it’s the coolest thing to come out of the internet for young (and not young!) people.
On shipping specifically, there’s no feeling quite like figuratively meeting someone else’s eyes across the room [internet] and realizing “I want those characters to fuck. YOU WANT THOSE CHARACTERS TO FUCK TOO? HIGH FIVE LET’S BOND OVER THIS.”
Fandom can be wonderfully inclusive and also allows people to forge relationships on similar interests alone, which is such a brand new thing and such a great way to make friends.
I’m so grateful for the relationships I have that, without the internet, would just never have fucking happened.
Heeeeyyyyy guys! I did an interview with Hansel Moreno about Basement Dwellers over at All-comic.com, you should go check it out! I really enjoyed talking about the reason I’m making the comic and other silly junk.
man if people start saying things about basement dwellers I gotta too! Because it is amazing and staying silent would be a shame. Not only do I love your artstyle (it has a nice flow to it without going into the abstract that really shapes the mood of the comic) but the story is filling me with a lot of anticipation; I'm really invested in the lead character already, which doesn't happen often, usually I'm only excited about the setting or the story alone. :)
AH DUDE! This is so wonderful to hear!! I think writing an interesting lead character is the hardest thing for me (and others?) to do, so I’m really really excited to hear that Zoe holds some weight. Thank you so much!
