Messy Zoophobia Ramble

From the YT description:

I get a TON of questions about ZP and I wanted to address some of them, I have been super busy and things have been hectic though so if I seem extra all over the place-that’s why! haha a BIG update is coming soon!

also a few things also I didn’t mention
People seem to think My patreon was for ZP, it never was, I had zp listed as one of the things I was working on, but patrons were aware it wasn’t my focus and were still given ZP content. I have updated my Patreon listings since the decision! I still do ZP related content, but my patreon has never been for the comic itself.

If the video is too long, here is also the post I made before!

Zoophobia is being put on hold, pending a complete reboot.

why is it being rebooted?

Very simple! I’m no longer happy with how the comic is. I could say the environment around the comic stopped being fun, people started finding every possible flaw and it started to reflect on how I personally saw things, I can’t look at it without cringing at all the mistakes and holes, and just how messy things are. I jumped into the comic without any experience, and without a conventional structure or the proper thought for such a huge story.

The early pages though are special, I TRULY was enjoying working on the comic at the start, its a story that matters so much, and still does. Those early pages were made with love, but overtime I just let too much negativity in, and now I just want to recapture that love again.

How can I do that? Give it a rest, and re-imagine things, develop it, write things out, plan and use my current skills to better it. I already am having a TON more fun thinking about the changes I can make, and how much better I can execute my original vision with my current skills.

I’m not remaking it to just improve the art, or the style, when it returns EVERYTHING will be improved. Writing, story, structure, flow, focus, the art is just a plus. But don’t worry, some things will be very similar, just much better told!

When will it return?

That I can’t say, right now I have a TON of things in the works, including Pilots, and films. The comic is being shelved until I have the energy to return to it, but in the meantime I plan on doing lots of concept art for the reboot, which will appear as prints/speed draws as well as exclusive Patreon content going into the future. So if you REALLY want to see glimpses of how the reboot is being conceptualized, feel free to check out my patreon entering into 2017!

Don’t look down. Too late. I should mention that I’m afraid of heights. Which I just learned.

Now for the fun!!
  • So over the ships pretty sure Rucas is happening now on to the "game changing" news that's going to happen in sweet sixteen! So I'm going to try my hand at predictions! Mind you I'm bad at this stuff so bear with me lol
  • So first what we know
  • ~Everything relies on a decision (so the game changer may not happen)
  • ~Topanga has some say in the decision
  • ~Depending on the decision Cory could potentially not be their teacher anymore
  • ~It has nothing to do with money
  • ~it has nothing to do with school
  • ~there is no threat of them moving back to philly
  • ~ Cory was not offered a better job
  • ~ an opportunity did not present itself to Riley
  • ~Farkle dos not get an early acceptance to college
  • ~the game changer makes Riley Auggie and Maya sad and cry but it in itself isn't necessarily sad...it's actually good
  • ~if it happened it will affect EVERYONE including even Shawn
  • ~ Farkle does not know and his reaction should be particularly interesting
  • ~ someone if not everyone is finally going to "explode"
  • ~no one came out as gay bi etc
  • ~ may seem to the "bird watchers" (wtf is that) that it is good for rucas but in fact it isn't
  • ~ no one dies and we already said the game changer was actually good news so this is like common sense
  • ~no one is pregnant (although that honestly would be like the BIGGEST game changer of all time in my book especially if Riley was pregnant but that's like OVER pushing the envelope lol)
  • ~this game changer could potentially affect Rilaya and it seems not in a good way
  • ~Maya is not moving in with her dad
  • ~If they film the show where the game changer does happen,again, everyone will be affected and they could potentially end the show on this ( if need be i.e. Get canceled)
  • ~if no cancellation again everything will change
  • ~there is the potential to lose someone
  • ~in this episode no one is moving
  • okay so with all of this information to me the most obvious predication is that Cory, Topanga, Riley, and Auggie are potentially moving. Really the only thing that will affect everyone and the very premise of the show itself with these perimeters is them moving. Because really nothing would affect Shawn other than Maya and Katy and let's be honest most of all Cory lol. We know Maya isn't moving to her fathers but still if Maya was the one moving why would Auggie be crying and Topanga have a choice in the matter?
  • -So we know Cory didn't get a new job offer and Riley didn't get a new opportunity. I thought about maybe one of their parents got really sickly and they had to move back to be with them but nahh because of the hint the news is good and they are not moving back to philly. So this kind of only leaves either Auggie getting a new opportunity and them moving for him or Topanga once again getting a new opportunity (and I say once again because there's always something going on with Topanga esp if you watched BMW). Also as far as tying into Topangas say in the matter the girl meets world writers already said sometime in this season Riley and Topanga were going to have a huge fight and this might be the catalyst. Also there was a hint at possibly someone realizing they like another person while being in a relationship because reality has a way of making things clear with the potential of losing someone. Let's all be honest and say we now this has to do with Riley and Farkle. and also it was stated the show if canceled could easily end this way (also hinted that it's common. What's a more common way to end a series than the main character moving away). Now there was mention that no one was moving (In this episode). It was real suspicious how "in this episode" was added to meaning probably the decision hasn't been made yet about the move.
  • Well those are some of my thoughts where and why they are moving is a mystery but it might become clear soon.
  • I got all of these hints from a tumblr user who was at the live taping of the episode. I honestly forgot their username so if anyone knows it please link or something 😁 oh found its "girlmeetsherworld" I don't know how to tag people lol but there is probably more hints on that blog
  • Feel free to let me know yalls ideas
  • UPDATE: it's recommended to watch these BMW episodes "A long walk to Pittsburg 1&2" , "Graduation", Angela's Ashes, "Brave New World 1&2" now I JUST finished binge watching all of BMW so I don't even need to go rewatch but if you haven't watched these episodes then wow it's almost completely obvious lol
  • "A long Walk To Pittsburg 1&2": episode where Topanga MOVES AWAY to Pittsburg because one of her parents got transferred!!!!
  • "Graduation": episode where they graduated high school and everyone was MOVING AWAY to college and on to the next chapter of their lives. Topanga had to make the decision to go to Yale or stay with Cory (she stays with Cory lol)
  • "Angela's Ashes": Angela MOVES AWAY with her father to Europe
  • "Brave New World 1&2": last episodes of BMW everyone is preparing to MOVE AWAY and again on to the next chapter of their lives. Again, Topanga gets a job offer from a law firm in New York (hello gmw lol) and Cory and Shawn MOVE with her there
  • I mean idk how much more blatant could this get and multiple people have said watch these episodes. And can we please talk about how basically ALL of these episodes have some shit to do with Topanga? Perhaps a hint? Even though Angela was the one leaving in Angela's ashes Topanga was the one zooming around and interviewing for the New York job so The episode was about Angela but HIGH KEY Topanga.
  • Lol I'm going to stick with this moving away thing but knowing my luck it's not going to be this because it would have been "too obvious" haha
  • Another Update:
  • So after an interesting message today I'm now like 87% sure that this is happening 🙊
  • So I watched True Maya and Jexica again because those are the recommended GMW episodes to watch and let's just say in this theory I'm missing exactly who is moving (I think Riley and fam but I'm not exactly sure), why they are moving, and where they are moving
  • Let's just say that after watching those episodes I see that at least one of those answers is defiantly hinted at 👀👀
  • A hint: something pertaining to one of those three questions will be mentioned 3 times over both episodes. All of the mentions are different but they all have one thing in common. Another hint, after you watch the episodes and think about it, look back over the recaps of my BMW episodes. It's literally written right there.
  • Okay actually...after some things I realized that basically everything you need is in this theory lol just put it all together. like I said isn't there a common theme in the BMW episodes? And watch the two GMW episodes and think about what I said. All of this should answer who, why, and where (:
People explaining why they don't like Empire of Storms
  • Person: I really liked the book on its own but compared to... Er let's say the first two books it really pales in comparison
  • Me: *??????????*
  • Person: the world is confusing, there are major plot holes, certain characters are one dimensional and serve no other purpose other than to make Aelin look good
  • Me: *?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!*
  • Person: the plot drags and the characters are out of character(*if I hear this one more time*), they are nothing like they used to be
  • Me: *character development anyone?*
  • Person: like nothing makes sense? The world is a completely different world, like other places that have been previously mentioned are now nothing like they where first explained to be and she still hasn't cleaned up ALL THE PLOT AND WOLRD HOLES! Like where is my explanation as to why Nehemia died?
  • Me: *gets headache*
  • Person: and she seems to have completely forgotten about some of her characters and is pushing ships on us that none of us wanted to see-
  • Me: ahhhhhhhhh it all makes sense now
  • Person: also the sex scenes where disgusting and pointless, we didn't need to see that and honestly I don't even like Aelin anymore! She's so snarky and egotistical, just NO.
  • Me: *what????*
  • Person: I can't give it more than 3.5 on goodreads, all the characters are amazing like can I have one? But not Rowan because even though he acts exactly like the rest of the men in the series act... He's abusive
  • Me: OMG THE LOGIC!!!!

ecurps  asked:

why hasn't anyone mentioned that Chandra CHORTLES. just imagine that; our fair-skinned redhead, eyes slightly squeeze closed, nose gently curling upward as she lets out a short laugh, the inhale that makes her softly snort just a bit.

Makes you wonder how the rest of the Gatewatch laugh
Nissa: through her nose, probably, faking a lot of the time because she Doesn’t Get It™
Liliana: a really low, dark chuckle, sounding like a really repressed villain laugh
Jace: silent, but obviously laughing, a lot of slapping his knees and wheezing
Gideon: THUNDEROUS GOD-LIKE LAUGHTER seems almost forced but is always 100% genuine
