Wait, what about Hybrids?

I always thought a breed of Werewolf/Vampire Hybrids (known as Bloodwolves) would be pretty cool to see

I see a possibility for some hybrids, but actually werewolf hybrids are a huge no-no in my story!

I wrote that 99% of hybrid pregnancies end up in miscarriages, and those that survive through pregnancy are always violent by nature. Violent to the extent that they are dangerous, especially if they were to reach adulthood. Just an interesting lore piece I wrote randomly. =P

Yes, get well, draw (and write) much more.

Although -- is there a way to put a little status picture on the site without replacing the strip? Say a little "out of service" sign on a lamp or bottle for when you're on hiatus?

Options are either to replace the strip, or write another comment that I mark author so it's all the way up.

Unnecessary speculation: The next time RJ goes out, he starts seeing multiple instances of supernatural / paranormal people (and things) that were already there. He then realizes he didn't ask if there was any way to admit to them he knows and won't tell, or to tell about Griha

And then we find out that half the people he knows are paranormal while he's just that oblivious. XP

I mean... if he didn't notice, it means the supernaturals were doing a good job. =P

Magic

Nearly everything gets way more awesome when you add magic to it. Even magic gets more awesome when you add more magic to it. I might even go so far as to say a eldritch elder god might be more awesome with a little extra magic...still terrifying and maddening, but more awesome.

Take care of yourself, don't come back too soon! Oh, and how about an Elder God who does stage magic to get applause because what he REALLY does is too scary!

The original genies are sort of elder gods actually =P But I would be up for one of them doing stage magic.

Stage magic? How about a street performer? A combination of mime and slight-of-hand artist. (Of course that's just a cover. Their real purpose is to subtly mess with criminals so they get caught and punished.)

One half of that is doable. Originals have a strict ruling to not meddle with people's affairs. That includes humans and other supernaturals.

There's no exploitable loopholes? "I didn't do anything to them -- I just held open the pocket they were reaching into." (And thus let the victim know they were being pickpocketed.)

Well... I haven't thought about the other originals as much, but I do know one of them would probably, kinda, sorta, most definitely, do that and argue that they were totally not meddling.

I'd think "human obliviousness" would be even more useful.
On the health issue, aside from letting us know where you stand (at least once a month, even if it's just you or a friend posting "I'm alive!"), take the time to keep you healthy. We (freeloaders that we are) don't have the right to ask you to risk your health for our entertainment (that's what "reality TV" is for). For that matter, you don't even need to explain the details; "health hiatus" is perfectly valid.

I still feel it's best to give an idea to people so they know not to worry. And what about my patrons? They're not freeloaders hahaha
