Plot Line B?

Please someone say if they've read a couple stories of the series that don't appear in this forum. The last few days I've been thinking about what happens next for plot line A. With that I think it helps to have read over at least part of Iron and Steel & Team Time Troubles. Otherwise some stuff might feel like it's coming from out of the blue. That second story has been touched on a little in Loaded Stone ( to be accurate the second time the character pairing of Zack & Finn comes up. Also a detail I hope isn't buried to people following what is happening ) . But that story it's self has roots back to Iron and Steel. The Carmen & Ivy short also is a side connection here but I know at least that has been read.

I kind of see this page of the story as the first to show it's CS inspiration not counting the minor mention of Ivy earlier or use of Zack here. It's having Zack say what was part of the plot formula which existed in the first cartoon ( of Carmen's ideas played out in parts to her thefts ). That idea really is used in the plot line as the gang attempts to deal with Finch and Bruce.

( Editing in: It just hit me I failed to mention about that beginning scene in '48 at ACME HQ in NYC. That scene was written to outline about three months before I started on drawing the pages for Loaded Stone. It got integrated into the plot but wasn't there for early draft writing. That's why I didn't think of it off the bat here. )

Thank you so much for asking Lucy! 🙂

I started on page 95 I'd say nearing an hour ago. Things have been really busy offline. Not something I've said before online anywhere, but I'm about to move. The lot rent fee goes up next month, so I have to move to another RV park.

While page 96 looms on the horizon for returning attention to plot line A. I need to look into a cultural detail I'm unsure if it plays any role to modern usage for plot line C. I came in here just now hoping someone here might know the answer.

Has anyone started connecting dots together about what is happening in the story?

I finished this last night but I've been very busy offline. If people want, I have some comments in regards to this page and a little of what is about to happen. Just ask if you'd like to hear them.

*Gives @Everly a hug!*

Again this dates into content before the current story. At near the end of Devil's Blood I introduced an administrative access network to HAPPY named On-X. This is the first time it's been visually refenced. If you know what cartoon it's going off of minus a Google search, kudos to you. Team Time Troubles also introduced an access network meant for HAPPY employees who don't have administrative power. That is called EC-CO. EC-CO is again another cartoon refence I'm curious if people will catch minus Google.

I know for page 98 it sounds dark what is being implied to Zia but in different terms a similar idea, kid friendly was done in canon.

Editing in: I forgot to add, that poster in her cubicle dates back to Iron and Steel.

I think Lucy is the only person who saw this post in the chat box. I need to make another B&W short to help with the buffer on ComicFury. That's going to start right after I post page 99.

It's 11 pages long named "An Extravagantly Priced In Value Meal". ... I know Vocal Canvases has at least been read by two people. ... This story which is truncated to make it short, touches on a little of ACME's history, brought up in Vocal Canvases. It also brings up a villain from witwics? for the first time.

Hello Systemcat.

I'm so glad you are doing well enough, despite your health problems to keep drawing and posting on here.

I know that all the writers on here appreciate 👍, ❤, etc, Views 👀 and especially Comments. I'm so glad you have been getting some good feedback from some other people as well.

I do like this story and and storyline, and I hope that you will keep up with it.

I was doing well keeping up with it, because I'm trying to finish a story I am writing on here, that I am literally writing on this site, because at the time I had run out of paper, or was having some kind of printer problem, so I posted it on here, and I was able to work on it the past few days.

But in the last 2 days, due to my bad time management, I haven't been on, so I have have fallen behind on my reading on here. That is all. (The story is in in Character Journals, and is called "A Sweet Surprise" and it is about Julie's personal life; which up until now, I've only really talked about in statues. The only reason I've got over 300 Views 👀 for that particular story is because I wrote it on the site; and the Views 👀 go up as I get closer to finishing it).

As far as mentioning your writings on this site, in chat, yeah, that is a good idea. I've been on this site for the last 7 years; and back then, the only area we had for "chat" was Neutral Grounds (also sometimes called the Shoutbox). Back then, one of the primary uses of the Shoutbox was for people to announce a new story they had posted--and also for Chase, Carmen, Sophie, and some of more international members to have some interesting chats in the late-night/early morning hours. But in about 2018, Chase did a major "update" and made some minor, yet significant, changes to to the site. People who hadn't posted in a long time started posting again--and a lot of new people joined--and suddenly Chat became a lot more "chatty." And other rooms were added after that.

So, if you want to mention a new story you've posted--do it in Neutral Grounds--because that chat is seen and used by everyone the site. Keep in mind, though, that because chat is more active these days the best time to post a comment about a new story is at some odd time of day, when there is a "break" in the conversation--when noone is talking.

So, please keep doing what you're doing--and even if you don't get all the comments you would like, don't let that discourage you. What you do is well-liked. 🙂

    Just thought I should give a heads up about this. Those "ACME Detective Agency" shirts from Walmart.com . I finally decided to order one today as a late Christmas gift to myself because I was given a gift card for the store. Those shirts through Walmart have unknown shipping restrictions through the site. But get this? Same provider on Amazon is selling the shirt and there the shipping isn't restricted. ... Not because of ordering a T-Shirt but this isn't the first time I've seen P.O. Box rejection. .. Yeah, the gift card was useless on Amazon of course but I didn't want to give up. My new shirt is due to hit my box on the 7th.😎

    @Lucy , I need to make another short to help with the buffer for Comic Fury. The best idea to quickly producing a comic would be the B & W route again. Already I have a basic plot figured out. I have no idea if you've read Vocal Canvases or not. But in that story the roots of ACME are touched on for the AU. What would you think of a story set in 1901 in India using Jocelyn & Patrick and Raj Mahal? Part of the plot idea is coming from a Classic IG story.

    Something those of you who follow my work might get a kick from in my forgetfulness. The start of Loaded Stone was the last time I thought I'd ever be drawing Jocelyn in comic presentation. Because she's being brought back that way for the short. ... In character design she is the only one of the whole AU I have to remember how to have hand use dominance. I forgot which side here before looking back at older drawings to make the correction. This ghost arm in rough art clearly will not be in the final presentation of page 1.

    I know it's taking sometime for me to finish B&W pages, that normally wouldn't take much time.

You could even look an a detailed map of San Francisco and know what is being story refenced. 🙁
