It's now after 5 pm in Jamaica. Hah.

Aisel courtesy of Spelledeg. For those of you who follow MSV, she's the "FNG".

I think you can be assured that Wednesday's page will be a lot shorter than the last few.

What's love got to do with it?

Lir, your artwork is the sh*t.

Indeed, love has nothing at all to do with the artwork I'm generating, it is all easily achievable by anyone with some spare time and a total lack of shame.

Answered yer commentary on the PM... but yeah, Spelledeg and I have been talking.

Tattoo art is from her hand--it's easy to rip that stuff with the Multiply layer setting and Mesh Transform.

I've gotta say that if the topic of love and marriage comes up that most people have confused, conflicting or even self-contradictory definitions in their heads that they never adequately examine until long after it gets them in trouble--if ever. Key phrases for disaster in the making I'm familiar with are, "Love at first sight," "If he/she really loves me he/she should know without me telling him," "The guy/girl is great but their friends/family are all a bunch of assholes," and, "I'm waiting until we're married to (fill in the blank)."

A.C. - I love your comments. However...

"Love at first sight..." Well, for my beautiful wife and I, it was mostly true. We met in a dance club, cheesy pick-up-line, blah, blah, blah, gave her my number - and she called me back. We have been inseparable ever since for over 18 years (well, except for that deployment to the Middle East)...

@Sig: I too "fell in love at first sight" but I won't lie and say that we don't have to work on our marriage every single day.

And ditto on the "government procured air travel"... that's how I knew she was the one.

@AC: Compromises can be troublesome when both sides haven't agreed to the same set of rules.

And yeah, I agree that all of those phrases are warning signs.

Congratulations to both of you on finding someone worth spending the effort of building a relationship with. I think you both get my point about a valuable relationship not being effortless, or coming primarily from magic other than the hard-work and open-communication varieties.

I wasn't thinking of compromises though, my focus was on the fact that everybody I've ever known has wanted at least one thing that's impossible and at least one thing they would be better off never getting. Not knowing what you want can be even worse, leading to getting taken advantage of, hurting yourself and other people, and realizing too late that what you have is not what would make you happy or content.

Three hundred of your closest friends. That's a hell of a lot more names than I could come up with. XD

I really like how you colored those first three panels. It gives me that ethereal feeling.

Rainbow gradient, duplicated and then modded + hard light.

Thanks! And I have no doubt that you could come up with three hundred people to take to a party, even if a few of them were attractive strangers.

Such salt.
The way I get her is that she probably built whole MSV just because of inner feelings. Tough stuff then but...
Dunno. Feels like a switch flipped inside her. I like Sonja but something tells me she is going to make choices that are not compatible with her thinking.

Heh. Suddenly enabled ratings :D

Oooooooooo! This page is woah o_o..and Sonja oh myyy. (she's not wrong about Aisel.)

I hope Sonja thinks some things through, or uses her new hubbo appropriately to get what she's aiming at. As bad as that is.

I'm honored to have Aisel in this(and holy heck she's talking). *_*

Thank you muchly, Lirv!

What is FNG? Friggin New Guy?

Maybe so is Aisel: The deepest and most twisted of murderous intrigue is spouse against spouse trapped in a loveless marriage playing a superficial shell game of acting like a loving couple in public. It's not like neither of them is a stranger to murderous violence and assassins.

@AC: TBH, I need Spelledeg to crank some pages of her upcoming work Now Hiring to be able to speak with more authority on what's going on in Aisel's head. In the absence of context, I don't think she's being sarcastic... but I don't know.

@Nef: Big picture? She's thinking infinite canvas.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Well, big picture or small, Jeniffer's behind up there on panel 1 makes her role more than a one time appearance. Even if only her behind is showing, hopefully the pay is good. She is a starving actress.

I'm gonna boop in @Anon: Aisel has played the game of loveless marriage for a short span, but much of that was her own fault. She's not the sort to be insincere in regards to someone else's marrying though, since she's been there, done that.

@Lir: Now Hiring is being scripted rn actually, I'm scripting chapter 1 in spare moments between buffering my big project.
