When you don't have a car (part deux)

...sometimes you just don't get anywhere.
It was someone's birthday today. Unfortunately, I didn't attend even though I would have liked to.
My fault, really.
Though I mentionned it, I didn't remind that I would have liked to go.
Curse my bad habit of not wanting to bother anyone. Always afraid that I'd be a nuisance.
Leaves me in my little corner.
Hmf.

Enough of the stupid self pity. Blah!
(See? I'm bothering you with that, ha ha!)

Let's post some rough Water Tribe pages instead.


I really must return to "notes mode". Guess I'm having too much fun again.
Nuh! Must finish, must move on!!





Last time I based (very loosely) material on Shinto beliefs. Now I'm using reference on poltergeist stuff, which tends to manifest a lot around kids and teenagers.
Who knows why.
If you want to read a cool poltergeist case, google "Enfield Poltergeist" for some freaky material. Brrrr...
(I'm not making statements if the events reported were true or hoaxed; it just makes for a great story)

Have to get back to note mode?

Since it's a fanproject, I don't think you have to do anything ;-)

As long as I'm welcome for the ride, I can take both :-P

It's more of a note to self: doing notes instead of page layouts like these go faster. I need to go faster.
I just wish the ideas would stop coming, ha ha!

Once again, the need of going faster is just your personal decision. I bet everyone that reads the comic don't mind to see it drag on ;-)

Hehe. I Googled it (took a while, since my usualt copy-and-paste isn't working).

For WT, I'm just glad I'm along for the ride. For the birthday party thing, I empathise, as I don't drive, either.

Sorry, I should have posted a direct link or something. I just couldn't decide which site had the best report and would leave it to people to find one that was enjoyable to read.
Hello, fellow carless person!

Hehe. I did find a couple things, first up being Wikipedia, which was asking that people verify, link, and all sorts of things to its article.: but what you did, in and of itself, fits in with he Avatarverse very well, IMO. The poltergeist bit, too, from what we know of the phenomenon,

okay FREAKY spirit faces. yikes. just imagining the noises that tree-face is making has me whimpering.

Although, when the girl screams at the first one and leaps into Payu's arms I just about laughed myself silly. You have an awesome ability to portray scenes. Love these, thanks for sharing!

I just had to break the mood with some comedy.
I can't keep a straight face, even in comics.

Mountain spirits like kids.

Benevolent poltergeists?

I don't know which kind of spirit this thing is. Perhaps related to a mountain spirit.
I don't know if there is such thing as a benevolent poltergeist. They mostly seem to like to cause mayhem and throw stuff around.

If the spirits are awake, it's mostly because of Azula.
At the same time, with spirits, if you're caught in the middle you're in trouble whoever you are so...Zhao is in deeper trouble, yeah.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet yet creepy! I wonder what the spirits want ....

right now, this one is just curious.
Gotta hope its mood doesn't change.

dsflkjfds The smile in that almost-last panel is freaky. Nice job. *shudder*

Not the kind of smile that would make me go and want to embrace that thing, that's for sure.

There supposedly is a correlation between poltergeists and emotional turmoil. The period of adolescence is often a time when individuals are under alot of stress and emotions are running high. The poltergeist feeds off of this in order to manifest itself
rufftoon

You'd think that would apply to a lot of adults with highly stressed jobs, ha ha!
But you're right; it is one of the theories I had heard (and obviously forgot- dur!)

Actually some poltergeist activity has been known to happen in places like office buildings.

I think I'd be jumping-running away very very fast from any random faces on the ground too.
Ain't forgetting about notes. I need to go faster! Pages only when the inpsiration hits me.
Which tends to be rather often.

Oh man, the earth spirits are creepy. Really really cool.

They're just trying to appear somewhat human. They don't quite do it too well.

Ha ha, so if we lived close by each other, we'd never call or meet because we'd keep thinking "oh, she must be busy and have her own thing going on. Let's not bother her".

Thanks- trying to make these spirits a bit creepy.. I don't think I could do scary.
You can bet there is some Miyazaki influence- definitely an inspiration.

Thank you!
Not sure I'd want one appearing everywhere I walked.

I empathize about the not-car thing. It can make things tricky, especially when you always feel like you're being a bother for asking for a ride. I still feel bad for constantly bumming rides to my friends' gaming group. Haha, people who are afraid they're bothering other people unite (but don't tell each other, we don't want to be a bother)! :D

Just do whatever feels natural. If you've got a scene and dialogue, go for it. If it's just notes, yay notes. I'm happy with whatever WT stuff is going on. It is all good.

Funny and creepy. Wow. That spirit does not look like one you would want to tick off (Li-Yi and Aku, I am looking at you guys). The girl is just adorable.

i have to say, if i were in Aku's place, i'd probably scream like hell too, despite the fact i'm probably 10 yrs older than her :P

Have you found a name for the girl? I kinda like the supernatural stuff that you're adding into, like the inclusion of Shinto folk culture throw in some Tao I hope the mountian gods/spirits are benvolent and that Shona shows up again lol

So creepy, ack! I love it! These spirits really do seem alien and ominous.. I can't wait to see where this is going!

Wow. That Enfield poltergeist is pretty weird.... they seem to have such a solid case for it. Maybe it's time to reassess my belief in ghosts ;)

And: Iroh! Yay!
