I would have like to see more Young Neil closure.
That was resolved too quickly for my liking.


I agree. It seemed as if he was becoming more and more estranged from the group, yet in the final book he's still hanging out with Knives, Scott and Kim. In a way he represented what sometimes happens with friends, where you stop hanging out and wonder "why why don't we hang out anymore?" and wish things were back to the way they were. It's not out of malice, it's just people sometimes drift apart. It can bum you out when you go from being close friends to barely being on speaking terms. Which is something I can relate to at the moment. The thing about friends though is you can not see them for months at a time, but when you do see them you can pick up right where you left off and get into the groove again. Maybe that's what happened to Neil. He was in a funk because he thought his friends were no longer his friends, when they were really all too busy with their own problems to notice.

Still, his falling out with Stephen wasn't really explored. But in a way the two were only friends because they were roommates.

I haven't been able to come to a conclusion, is young Neil a homophobe as expressed by calling Stephen Stills "Captain Homo" or was he just doing that in a gay as an insult thing?

I don't know. It would be a low blow if he knew Stephen Stills was gay when he called him that. Although it might explain why Ramona acts so coldly towards him.

Or she acts coldly to him because she's a bitch

^ You just had to say that twice didn't you :lol: ?

But maybe Neil IS a homophobe prick, I always thought he was the innocent young kid who liked to hang out with the older crowd, but now I think that O'Malley wanted to show us the complete opposite.

I don't think that a kid who the greatest day of his life was getting called by his actual name would be malicious enough to be a homophobic prick

Well, I think it would be quite weird for O'malley to have young Neil as such a background character, seen as an innocent, and then all of a sudden whip out this total character twist moment and slap us in the face with it

Was challenged by a friend to draw all 7 Evil Exes. WOORRRKKKING ON IIIIIIIT.

So far I have Matthew Patel and Lucas Lee complete (although I want to revisit the Lucas pic and make it more epic) and some really gay doodles. ENJOY!

And some super gay doodles: (mixed in, some Original Characters and a self portrait, but mostly a lot of Patel.)
FFFFFFFFFFLOWERS
I'm a firm believer that Patel has a really dreary day-job working at his father's Deli and being hassled for his emo hair and hatred of hairnets.
Also, 7th Grade Matty was a Fatty.

Up next: TODD THE VEGAN MAN.

P.S. Totally didn't see a Scott Pilgrim thread. Guys WHAT GIVES?? I've somehow managed to go a year with only going to the theater maybe four times total, and saw that damn movie twice. It's just. Eyeball candy. Like a bad trip I can't escape. So yeah feel free to talk about the movie/comics too I don't mind. X)

Those are brilliant - you should totally send them @radiomaru's way when you're done.

I AM TRICKSY LIKE THAT.

And also apparently unobservant! That's what I get for making fanart threads instead of sleeping!

I linked the Patel one to Radiomaru over Deviantart but IDK if he noticed it in his swarm of fansquees on his page. XD When I finish all seven I might send him a note with them, though! (My Patel pic is the second thing that comes up when you search "Matthew Patel" on DA XD I can't believe it's got so many faves for what I consider a doodle. )

Gotta' sell more Gguns so I can go buy all his comics fer srs >8| In the meantime we'll see if I can get Todd done over teh weekend. X) Hurm, how to disguise the number in the third.... ((has idears!)) Thanks for your support guys! I'll add in the Exs as I finish. X)
