I don't know if I want this to happen sooner or later. I check every day for a new page but also kind of breathe a sigh of relief when there isn't one because that means Roommates is, for the moment, keeping on. I've said before how long I've been following this comic. I've already picked out what I want to use to bind it into volumes when all's said and done.

I don't know if the rumors of the comic ending are true, but no matter what, I want to thank you for creating this wonderful, beautiful comic that has quite literally shaped me as a person.  Words cannot express how much "Roommates" means to me.  I've been following it since December 2013 - I binged the entire comic up until whatever the latest panel was at that time in one night before finals - and it has both reinforced my love of familiar characters and introduced me to numerous new ones.  You, Ashe, are the one who first showed me Good Omens and Der Erlkönig and so many many more.  There are certain lines and moments from this comic which never leave my consciousness, chief among them the one about redemption way back in 11 as well as Jareth's first statement about Story pushing back.  This comic has not only brought me countless hours of enjoyment, it has changed the way I see the world and fiction's place in it.  THANK YOU, Ashe, for spending years of your life on this much-beloved project.  Thank you.

Or maybe our two main characters will fuse like Dark Crystal (just a weird thought) (and wish I could get to the larger version of this picture anymore - you'll see it)…

People are saying this is really the end. I don't know if this is just people taking the recent comics the wrong way or if it is true but if it IS true, I want you to know how much your comics inspired me. I've been reading your comics since 9th grade. I am now a senior in college. Your art style has improved so much over the years and it looks incredible. You inspired me to keep drawing and get better and better. I'm still working at it but you should know that you were a big inspiration to me and I'm sure lots of others. If this is really the end, thank you so much for everything. This story was something I didn't know I needed in my life. I don't know you personally but I really wish I could give you a big hug.

Thank you so much! I wish you all the best with your studies and your art. I'm glad the story was able to help!

I remember the bunker. Asher, I've been reading that Roomates is ending? I just want to tell you that this comic literally changed my life in late 2014, for good, and for best. I wish you the best in the next endeavour (which I would love to still be a fan of) and I know life will return to you with thousands more what you gave me and that is so so much. 

As some comments are recommending I will re-read it to get ready to the end and practice my indesign abilities to save a copy to have in my life. 

Thank you for so much and lets celebrate the non-apocalipse.

I’ve been following this comic since 2014. Not as long as others, true, but still a damn long time. It got me to read Good Omens, ship Valvert, watch Phantom of the Opera and Labyrinth, rewatch the Pirates series, and so many more. I quote it way too often and some of the most heartwrenching, awesome, and breathtaking lines and exchanges I know come from this comic. “Come then, and see what kind of king I am.” “I don’t believe. But sometimes, I wish i did.” “This wasn’t the ending I wanted and that wasn’t a request.”

I don’t know you. I don’t know anything about you at all. But I know you are probably one of the greatest storytellers I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to, and my deepest and sincerest wish is that in ending this comic, you’re going on to create your own stories and get the recognition you more than deserve. Thank you for four years and however much longer I have to enjoy this story before I finally get to print the rest of it out, stick it in a binder, and call it “the end”.

yours, Hans

Thank you very much for your kind words and your loyal readership. I'm very glad the comic could introduce you to more things that you've enjoyed. If you do decide to print it out and binder it, get a Really Big Binder. The originals are on cardstock, so they're thicker, but they take up a a four inch binder and two two-inch binders.

I'm so happy that you've enjoyed this story. Thank you again for reading.
