Just a Status Upate (About DeSTRESS)
(Crossposted from dS’s mainsite)
This is just a casual update that I am alive and simply drowning in bad planning and final projects. After this week is over (6-15-13) I can return to drawing/buffering/updating- with any luck I can get back to drawing sooner, but that is only in the best case scenario.
I apologize for that as it is entirely my fault for not planning my work and comic buffer out better.
Also dS became ~3 years old~ on the 7th (I’m sorry for not posting something up for then too OTL).
Anyway, thanks again for being so patient and supporting the comic, I’m trying very hard to finish the 11 page treat* and resume posting more updates.
*For those curious the 11 pages are a chapter 0 of sorts that I’ve wanted to make and post for a while. I thought it would have been best to post it all at once and after ch 5 was finished. It contains the EXCITING TOPIC of how souls are handled when they arrive at Mionfaer as well as give a better context for how ch 1 started off as it did.
Part of the Mr. Pilot Series!
Sometimes I like to revisit it and randomly doodle something from here because I am a monster and because apparently I just can’t get enuff of duh homoromos.
For those of you concerned with the ~canon~ of Mr. Pilot, this takes place after Alock gets Versh to stop constantly asking him about the Auzzy. This is also a reminder that Greys are just REALLY friendly sociopaths. Also to those of you that enjoy this series, how do their tweaked appearances look?
Tired of those haters, trolls- people asking questions about anything? Rly rly harsh critiquers? Are you sad people are not APPRECIATING you enough by worshiping you like the creative god you are?
Allow me to tell you about a revolutionary new webcomics hosting site: HugBox Hosting where people post comics they DON’T want critiqued in any fashion
because they’re giant babies.
Free accounts will have all comment features disabled, Instead only the finest bots will post the most generic compliments after a certain number of comic page hits has been reached. Additionally, each time an author posts a page, the bots shall dispense a randomized, but congratulatory comment to the author! How rewarding!
By 2014 we expect the next phase of
asskissing the hands-off praise system to be implemented. There are categories of “Writing”, “Art”, “Feels” and “Give the Author a Cookie” that can be voted in daily, when the comic reaches a certain amount in ANY category, a generic compliment shall be dispensed to the author. It’s so comforting to the author!
By 2015 we hope to have the premium features fully implemented. For the bargain of $29.99 a year, premium users may have a comment system! But worry not! All comments shall be screened by certified HugBox staff to ensure only appreciation, sunshine and rainbows shall reach the author!
Please look forward to the KickStarter that will be launching in the next month or so! ^_^
HugBox Hosting, where everyone’s mouth is firmly planted on your ass or genitals!
For everyone else, fuck you all for being mature enough for trying to achieve improvement with critique. Fuck your hard asses. And fuck you critique-givers and your stupid brains and questions and STANDARDS! These webcomics are FREE you pieces of shit!
If you have a problem with this, go here to clear things up (x)

walking crawling, talking, corpse tree appears! Also Ch. 5 is FINALLY OVER! It’s been a long road, now onto the next chapter- SOON! And as always, thank you guys for being so supportive and reading dS~
Today’s incentive is a very silly congratulatory card, it has cake on it! Vote to see it!
*Don’t look now Raz…
DeSTRESS Ch. 05, Pg. 90 is up!
Texty does a magic trick.
In similarish news, I have finished the roughs for an 11 page treat! If I do things right I can have it up before dS’s 3rd birthday! :)
Today’s incentive is Lisair doing something action-y. Vote to see it! The askbox is now empty! I guess I should finally get cracking on those NSFW requests!
*You do the glitch by talking to Ilium and then pacing up and down in front of Razzy’s Church until you get an encounter! Remember not to feed it any Candies or Level it Up in battle!!
DeSTRESS Ch. 05, Pg. 89 is up!
Let Texty into your heart Raz. Go on.
!SJ has been having image issues recently, you may have to reload to see the page!
Today’s incentive is Sex-Swapped Mortal Cycle/Blue Page characters. Vote to see it! There is also only one request left in the askbox!
*So its teeth are black with cavities? MY HEADCANONZ
I’ve lost it. Maybe this is what destroyed my last shred of patience. I honestly don’t know what else to say or what I should even do. I’m at a loss for words. How the fuck am I supposed to react?
So while I’m sorry to post this, I’m NOT REALLY THAT SORRY.

Who is being more of an ass, the author about updating or Texty in the comic?! YOU DECIDE!
Today’s incentive is Amvisile’s pranks. Vote to see it! You can also see Martae’s pranks in the freetalk- and with that all the Bezzafrayl pranks are done!
As an aside, I am slowly converting the image hosting from PB to imgur since PB has some bizarre redirecting going on. So far MiniMags and all the Asks have been fully converted~
*But Texty you’re a TREE THING this time around!
DeSTRESS Ch. 05, Pg. 85, 86 & 87 are up!
TRIPLE UPDATE, JINKIES!! Mags sassing Sid, Sid being a worryBrick and Raz buckling down for QUALITY CHATTIME with Texty.
Today’s incentive is a stupid joke about how Texty plans on helping Raz. Vote to see it!
*GDI Sid this isn’t rocket science. It’s SIMON SAYS!
I’m flattered you enjoy them, Anon!
And I’d be honored to critique/review your webcomic! You can contact me about it via the Askbox, or on SJ by PM. I also have no problem giving an informal/private critique if that is what you want. Simply tell me when you feel up to it.
Now as for my tastes…. [A shitton of text under the cut]

Today’s incentive is Raz having the time of his life. Vote to see it!
*There is a level that exists in a hell below pickup lines. This is an example of one of those.

Today’s incentive is Raz spouting the words of a true Romantic. Vote to see it!
*But does Sid cease being a 3rd wheel if he’s part of an OT3?
DeSTRESS Ch. 05, Pg. 82 is up!
Oh look it’s some homoromo, I bet some of you forgot that was a persisting thing in this comic- don’t worry, no one blushes with the kawaiis.
Today’s incentive is if Mags could channel knighthood into a single image. Raz is not impressed. Vote to see it!
*That’s some STRONG LANGUAGE YOUNG MAN.
I honestly don’t know how to respond to this aside from express my condolences that I alone managed to crush your webcomic hopes and dreams, as well as be a little confused as off the top of my head I do not recall reviewing any comics whose genres I had no interest in and even further, failed to provide any help in at least the art or technical categories of your comic (lettering, etc.).
Lastly, I will assume you are not this person:
(source: (x) scroll down to the disqus comments)
If you are, well, I’m glad this is cleared up, on the other, I don’t appreciate how my name was used as part of a fabrication to dislike a website and community and hope your next foray into SJ will go smoother. Or if you come to actually dislike SJ, it will be due to events/interactions that actually happened.
Thanks to anyone who had discussion or defended me in the comments, I really appreciate it. :)
