Announcement+Update on Paying the Debt

Hi everyone! First off, I just have to say thank you. Thank you all SO much for following me and showing so much support for my work. Seriously, I am so blessed to have you all!

Now, I just have a few things to say!

I just want to let you all know I do get quite a few messages, and not enough free time. I work a full time job Monday through Friday (and sometimes Saturdays), so please, please be patient with me if I do not respond to messages or chats right away. 

2nd, chapter 02 will be ending this week, the schedule will be Monday-Friday. (YAY!!)  Chapter 03′s script is still being worked on, but when pages do start coming back, I am going to post the pages Monday and Friday (possibly Wednesdays but I will let you all know if I do). 

So in the meantime, during the wait for chapter 03′s pages, (which I hope to get out next month), I will work on small comics (such as Collecting the debt and Young Cups and Mugs…plus a comic strip connecting to Paying the Debt) and other sketches or artwork! 

Thank you all so much for reading this, and have a wonderful week and get ready for some comic pages! woo! :D

Trump Allies Allege Mueller’s Obtaining Trump Transition Emails Was ‘Unlawful’

Opponents of special counsel Robert Mueller ramped up their attacks over the weekend with a new claim that he improperly collected thousands of emails from President Trump’s transition team and is using them as an illegitimate basis for much of his investigation.

Mueller’s office said his team has obtained all the evidence it’s using in its investigation properly. And Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed him, told Congress last week that he monitors Mueller’s operation closely and has seen nothing improper.

This weekend’s dispute is the latest chapter in an ongoing campaign by Trump’s Republican allies against Mueller and his team.

The anti-Mueller camp raised the stakes on Saturday by charging that Mueller had improperly obtained tens of thousands of emails from as many as a dozen accounts associated with the Trump transition, and investigators had been using information they contained in their investigation.

At issue is how the special counsel obtained the materials.

The emails were stored with General Services Administration (GSA). It’s a government agency that does a range of things like providing office space for federal employees. It also hosted the incoming administration’s email system, which ended in “@ptt.gov” – or presidential transition team.

Former President Barack Obama ditched the coat and tie for a more casual look while surprising Washington, DC, middle school children at a Boys and Girls club this week: a leather jacket topped off with a festive Santa hat.

About 50 kids were excited to see the former President and greeted him with handshakes and cheers when he walked through the door with a big sack of gifts slung over his shoulder.
“There’s no better time than the holiday season to reach out and give back to our communities,” the former President tweeted alongside a photo of the Thursday visit. “Great to hear from young people at the Boys & Girls Club in DC today.”

Below is the fake leak some people have been talking about. If you want to know why we know it isn’t true. Look at the fourth episode title. It’s a reference to a no nothing line that only appears in the comics. It’s never been referenced by the show runners and is only a big deal inside the Klance fandom online fans. It would be meaningless to any other fan.

That title is one that a Klance fan would come up with, not one of the show runners.

Edit: Apparently the person who made it has said that this is fake. I’m looking for confirmation on this right now.

A Thank You to Other Members

S: Recently Koyama-san said “Good luck with the play!” and gave me vitamin supplements. I told him “I don’t even drink supplements!” but I drink it properly. (laugh) I’m really grateful for that. 

K: Massu, thank you for always making cool outfits for NEWS. I think coming up with outfits is very hard. But I am the thing Massu envisioned in his head (??), I believe in his vision. This time also please take care of us!

T: This year Shige gave me some pretty serious advice on personal matters. Our personalities are completely different but our senses match. I wanted to thank him for listening to me quietly while thinking about various things.

M: In Tegoshi’s case there’s actually something I want him to be grateful for.  (laugh) I’m the one who gives him birthday presents all the time (and he doesn’t). Also when I’m buying coffee I’m also asking “Do you want some, Tegoshi?” and buy it for him.

Blog overhaul

So, in order to celebrate the holidays (no not really) we decided to give the blog a nice overhaul that makes it more user-friendly and dual serving as some kind of database. Nothing major changed, but we hope it makes it easier to navigate. What are the changes?
