Gigi was twittering something about how there's no good webcomic criticism, and reading that inspired me to finish starting a project I'd been sitting on for a while, namely a series of webcomic reviews which I intend to be good. I started with Cucumber Quest.

Summer Games Done Quick 2014: Donations have set the filename for Paper Mario TTYD as "Almond".

I stayed up all night just to see if this would happen.

I'm so happy

Just finished reading this front to back. Best use of downtime I've had in a while!

Found a pretty nice fandub of everything through Chapter 0, too.

So I guess the girl Princess Piano mentioned would be Princess Ametrine? I mean, probably, since they mentioned Queen Sapphire and the names fit.

Also, I have to wonder if Gigi made up "nightmare_child_35" or if there's actually someone with that alias.

My modus operandi when it comes to this comic has been to let it stew for a couple months and then binge it at once. That way I get the characterization all at once -- after all, this comic is about the characters above all else, and if you just get little glimpses of the characters a few times a week, it can be tough to see the big picture.

Am I making a mistake here?

Gigi posted a thing on her tumblr asking for voice auditions reading parts from Count Legato for "an upcoming project." ~Mysterious!~

So, I've seen these Peridot facts before (as mentioned, they were on Gigi's tumblr), but holy hell, color makes them a billion times better.

I especially like, in the second one, how most of the panels are all done in one color, except Peridot in the last panel is still green while everything else is Nightmare Purple.

Is that a spoiler? I don't think she's even trying to be subtle about it.

I dunno, I wouldn't be surprised if it went in that direction but had one last minute twist on the concept. Though it's also possible she's going to play it totally straight and be like 'well DUH'.

Okay, Rosemaster was amazing today. First you had the obvious change in her word balloons, then the leaves on her shoulders changing to pointy leaves. Those details!

Also, am I only the one leaning towards NK going to turn on her. I mean, his panel reads that way to me.

Well, the entire story reads like NK is going to wind up being the hero, so...

Default Reiterating the obvious here? Yeah probably.

Yeah, if anything, I look for NK to end up working with Cucumber to put an end to the whole "hero saves the world" cycle. Cuco's already pretty hardcore against it, and NK practically opened the door to the other side of Melody Kingdom for him. After seeing what went down after Noisemaster fired off his orbital ray gun dealie, I'll eat an entire rack's worth of hats if the Oracle doesn't wind up being the true Big Bad here. It was almost like NK wanted Cucumber to see how one-sided the "conflict" really is.

So, Nautilus isn't with the rest of the group right now, and she's missing from the characters page.

do u think id ever create a character with a garbage name like nautilus. what even is that. i had to google that.
Someone expressed relief she was still on the character page. And she immediately vanished.

And then R's rundown of princesses didn't have her, and the author comment for that page is "that's all of them, right".

She mentioned her when doing "cucumber quest character super smash brothers headcanons", but then immediately went back to denying.


Basically her twitter is wonderful.
