    Out of curiosity, how was it you came to be interested in/become a fan of One Piece?

    For the most part I just read your posts. If I feel like I don't have anything of weight to add to the topics being discussed I usually keep quiet. Of course if you mean general discussions between the two of us I'm always down for a chat too, in fact I might engage in more discussions with you in future because, differing opinions or not, it's always a pleasure to read your take on things.

    Yeah I didn't like how they were speaking to you so I got defensive but then saw the way you dealt with it in a more kind manner so I followed suit. Got your back anytime.

    I dunno if I'd recommend any of the Unfortunate Events adaptations, since I haven't watched any besides the film ages ago as a kid, but the books left a strong impression. I read them in third and fourth grade, and they were some of the first things I had read with a strong streak of dark humor. The author had a pretty eccentric style - and as you might know is a character in the larger plot-line too - full of digressions, rants on history and language, and frequent use of meta-plot and humor. One of the funniest and most infuriating bits about the series was the overall conspiracy that was formed, and constantly mocked in the latter books. I won't spoil it in case you dig further, but I remember how much it made me laugh and tear my hair out how the series would lay these clues and set-up that would seem to point to the increasingly bizarre and surreal conspiracy surrounding all the events and character, only to divert near the end of the book and continually poke fun at itself.

    Well that's not bad tactics per se, Oda was planning One Piece for quite a while in advance - though of course not to the extent the most amorous fans will declare lol - and that seems to have worked well in his favor. Though if you're planning a webcomic method of release, I'd imagine your deadlines/release schedule would be considerably looser, though a tighter one would help to up publicity/keep fans invested. And I have no real experience in this, so no need to take my 'advice' to seriously lol, but I'd think you'd also want to release on multiple webcomic platforms. The webcomic scene seems - to me at least - highly decentralized, which seems both a potential boon for creativity but also a challenge to attain a real following.

    And yeah, it's been great chatting with you! I guess one reason I opened up so much is it can feel semi-voyeuristic being predominantly a lurker for so long, so it seems only fair in a weird way heh.

    I'll have to apologize to you properly since you seem like a genuinely good guy. I could follow the conversation but my mind is filled with, let's just say an extreme distaste, with the upper echelons of society. On the other hand, I'm very, very forgiving of high concept entertainment. However, I shouldn't be allowing my distaste with elitism to bleed over and affect how I interact with persons that aren't necessarily elite, but just articulate.

    tl;dr: I'm sowie. T_T

    And yeah, while I have a lot of "higher" interests, the root of my hobbies and passions come from geeky junk too lol. Not to disparage that stuff any way, I'd still say they're probably the dominant part of my interests lol, and I don't buy into the idea that any kind of medium or genre has inherent value over any other, especially not due to respectability or conventional esteem. But in any case I've blabbered quite a bit more by now, and I need to get some sleep, so this'll be it for my onslaught of messages for now lol.

    Ah yeah Sandman! That's one I've been meaning to get into forever, I read Watchmen way back in my freshman year of high school, and just around that same time my English Lit teacher (she was a rather strict, older fashioned kind of teacher, but really appreciated her & got to know her well) introduced me to Sandman & had a large poster of it among her show bills & book related posters. It really fascinated me, as have the things I've heard and read about it in the years since then, but I've never really given it the go ahead. I haven't probed the web-comic scene too far beyond those ones I mentioned, and the famous/infamous Homestuck really hasn't ever attracted me lol.

    My sudden interest in biology though has been encouraging, as it's a path I had kind of closed off to myself without thinking about it too much before. But yeah, I'll be really interested to see how your projects pan out - have you got any prior work (not your current ones) that you'd feel comfortable sharing?

    Thanks for the kind words lol, I have a tendency to write a lot too - could work on being more concise too, though these character counts don't help lol - so I don't mind at all. I know I have talents, I just really need to distill for myself what they are, and how I can make use of them.

    Yeah, the internet age has a brought with it a whole ton of ramifications (kind of an obvious thing but still lol) and I think there's a ton of good, bad, and stuff that we've yet to see really play out. But it's really neat that you were able to hit it off like that, I still haven't quite found a "calling" if you want to call (bleh) it that. I'm passionate about fiction, but I don't think I'm really cut out to make it. Animation is probably my highest interest (tho it waxes and wanes like my others) but while I initially thought I wanted to actually make animation, it's been a bit of a tough road realizing I didn't' quite have the knack or drive to manifest that. I'm still trying to figure out how to best make use of my talents and interests, and hopefully finding an intersection to go forward with.
