Ok, so, this was made.. Uh… The summer after my senior year of high school? I had tossed around the idea of becoming a comic book writer and got towards the end of this and decided that full books were just “not my style.” I prefer short stories or jokes that can be contained in a few panels.

This also featured Derek, who was a combination of a few of my male friends, and his story was that he liked me, but I really didn’t like anybody, but was grateful for a friend who put up with my wiley antics. Em²a was a lot more sarcastic back in the day, and smiling was supposed to be a rarity or a scary thing.
