Here's That Day...
"Every two weeks. I could set my calendar by it. Bog it! Greenwich could set itself by it!" And of course, there it was, exactly as expected, on her dresser, in front of the mirror. Except that "her" dresser and "her" mirror were no longer the same ones accustomed to hosting this small, should-have-been innocuous clear sphere of is-it-crystal-or-glass.
Apparently moving out of her dad's house, going to university, and living in the dorm (1,500 miles away, thank you!) wasn't going to make delivery of this item late or non-existent.
She had pondered whether the change in time zone would make delivery seem late. What if the Underground went on Absolute Time instead of following Daylight Saving, or was it Daylight Savings? She didn't actually get to find out, as she was attending a mandatory new student orientation that somehow seemed to last from half an hour before the possible arrival until 45 minutes after.
"But that's new," she mused, considering the feather. She

A FEW DAYS LATER : ... OMG so many of you have been so incredibly generous. I am verklempt and pleased as punch and eying a lightboard for purchase and so very grateful and ... well, I just tried to hurry up and get you the next page, kay?



Buy Me a Coffee at


OK, so. I am tackling a long list of proactive, arse-shifting To Do things, and this was one of 'em.

After looking around a bit, Patreon felt like a daunting amount of *commitment* and I am currently about to be freaking-out busy and stressed trying to pitch a new BD project to a publisher after 2017 was a year of Things Falling Through, professionally - bah humbug.
But even though my GND page updates have slowed down something fierce I still get the loveliest, touching, just-only-a-tad guilting, messages from people who care about this 'verse, and first-time-reader comment-sprees and some who are looking for ways to show their appreciation and.... well, finally getting into the 21st century content creator mindset and all that - I've set up what seemed like the most hassle-free version of a digital tip jar in the form of a Ko-Fi page. Works with Paypal - you can "buy me a coffee" for a few bucks, as a one-off, no subscription or pledging or suchwhat.

Yeah, verily, I do this at this point of barely monthly updates. And I know, the comic was not even my original idea to start with. Feels cheeky af.

Disclaimer and general British not-wanting-to-make-a-fuss and all..... I'm not in a financially sticky place.... there are far more needy and productive (fan)artists out there deserving of your paypal pennies. But eh. It has been 10 years of pages, and producing tiptoeing-around-copyrighted-characters merch on Society6 is a whole other affair, kinda. Let no-one here feel in any way guilted or tripped up or obligated (and hey, comments is always nice too =D ). And I make no promises of faster updates nor nuthin' neither!


(Really, I had more hopes to monetize GND readership on the day I finally get something published in English, but that seems a pretty fuzzy horizon rn.)


As a repeat of my anniversary post, thanks again, and always, to everyone who's ever commented, those who keep doing so, and all of you who have made telling this story this so much interactive fun.


So, insert Labyrinth-y pun about being generous and whatnot, and cheers all. :iconsparklesplz:

PS. BTW, that facebook group linked to last post - I've seen several other dA-familiar pieces there since, they are a nasty lot of print-selling art-yoinkers...

Hi!!!I have been looking at your work since my senior year in highschool and now I’m a senior in college. I love your work, it never ceases to make me smile and it’s so nice having someone carry on such wonderful characters in such a fun way. Thank you so much and please never stop!

Hey! I absolutly adore and respect your art, and you are such a major inpiration to me. One question though...I can't seem to figuar out how to read your whole comic series from start to finish, with it getting all mixed up. Do you have a folder its all in?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2018  Professional General Artist
Hey there! And thanks! And yeah, I really do still have about 200 "Next page / Previous" links to edit on the comics, but there is in fact a separate GirlsNextDoor folder in my Gallery you can read through with dA's Prev /Next buttons. Finicky to link for me rn on mobile but shouldn't be too hard to find... ?

For those that fantasize about an Adult version of something like “Labyrinth”, or “The Dark Crystal”, we can finally take heart: “The Happy Time Murders” adult Muppet crime Dramady is only the beginning. Something serious, “Game Of Thrones” level of serious is surly on the docket.

I want to share a reddit conversation I had, but I lost the link and will recount the conversation by memory.

The post was "What was the weirdest sexual thing you have been asked to do that you agreed to?"

A guy in the thread talked about how his girlfriend would make him act out her erotic fiction about an immortal and arrogant space elf.  I responded glibly "Jareth!" before I went to bed, and he sent several replies within the few hours I was asleep asking "What!?  How did you know?  Did you know her?  Do you know me?  Who are you?" and had to wait until I logged on after work the next day to get my explanation (he'd seen the movie, but forgotten it and didn't really seem to get the connection.)

Virtual high-five to whoever that girl was, and virtual hug to the dude.

Y'know, culturally, we're full into this whole 80s nostalgia, retro remake pandering to grown-up geeks with purchasing power phase, and once we've powered through the obvious (Star Wars, the suburbs of Spielbergia... ) and the boys' toys, I think it is only just starting to show how strongly Labyrinth marked the girls, and how damn many paranormal romance love interests can be directly traced back to the lasting impressions left by one Goblin King. I mean, most women authors, actresses, content creators various, whose work I enjoy, they all know the Magic Dance. The fanfic output is a statistical aberration compared to the usual canon expanse/popularity/age parameters. And mainstream pop-culture awareness may spare a nod for "glitter and cool puppets!" and Crotch jokes, and friendly male ubergeek co-worker will acknowledge it in the great 80s fantasy films lineup, but they totally misunderestimate the undercurrents and female Deep Fandom here.
Admittedly I am biased and this is my major fandom haunt, but.
