Never realized how much terrible stuff he was responsible for over the years (its been so long!) until Lottie organized it so nicely for all of us. Tim is really the worst.

Ahh, thank you. It segued from Lottie and Mildred to the whole gang so quickly I missed the jump.

Oh good, so the end of ScaryGoRound is when the Bad Machinery kids brutally murder Tim.

It's a metaphor, I think.

I mean, we don't know, but we can make a pretty good guess based on who would favour Shauna being allowed back on the swim team. Hint: uudd is making a pun.

Default I'll admit it. It's awkward at times.

How you people remember the names of a cast of 100s at this point is beyond me.

I can't remember the names of 9/10s of the IRL people I meet.

Yeah but this comic only has like...a half dozen sezzy (female) redheads so that narrows it down tremendously.

I've been reading X-Men comics for 25 years, this is easy in comparison.

The panel of Tim pushing Mildred out in today's comic has some very Kate Beaton facial expressions.

Tim appears to be turning over a new leaf and talking sense, so we know this is about to all immediately go to shit.

if this fucks with Ryan and Amy being happy I shall become Quite Cross Indeed.

I'd feel smug for calling this, but it'd be like being proud of correctly sussing out that a bowling ball will drop to the ground if you let it go.

he grew it out? One of Allison's recent little tricks for story arcs with multiple timelines is Distinguishing Hairstyles so a reader can quickly orient themselves on when the things they are seeing take place happened. See: Lottie's different haircuts in the fairyland arc between the frame narrative and the fairyland story.

Scary Go Round un-cancelled

Due to the fact that I am working on some Exciting New Things in 2018, I am extending Scary Go Round indefinitely into 2018. I don’t think I can make up an entirely new webcomic whole cloth alongside these other (mystery) tasks. So I guess you’ll be able to continue visiting Tackleford into its 20th year. The current story (Hard Yards) will end as planned on December 18th. The SENSES-SHATTERING CONCLUSION will now be re-branded as the PRE-CHRISTMAS IMBROGLIO. I have no idea what will happen in 2018′s stories yet, we’ll see what I can dig out of the shattered timber and glowing embers of what remains on December 19th.

Allison can quit any time he wants to. He just doesn't want to.

I'm curious to see what, if anything, Tim changed with his teapot.

So I was right that Tim's dad is definitely real but maybe wrong that he was responsible for getting Tim arrested? Maybe still right about that though.

We've seen this same visual effect before, but both times were kinda meta-narrative stuff involving Lottie, so I'm not sure what to make of that, if anything.
