And thus it ends. Just like it started, with all the right messages. Both MA3 and DC. A positive vision of sex, and of all things sexual, and of all characters who freely enjoy their sexuality. Even if they are promiscuous. Even if they are cheaters. Even if they are children. Even if they are demons from hell, lol. Well done. To the very end, Giz and Dave kept on doing their own thing, completely ignoring the fundies and loonies who polluted the forum with their trollery. (I admit it: I laughed heartily at the scene of succubized Abby, right on the sofa with the other girls, watching the live porn stream of her brother and Chloe shagging like minks. Hah.)
And, actually, when I say "ignoring the loonies" I mean it in the old obsolete sense. This is a little tidbit of information that you may not know about: Giz and Dave don't give a flaming rat's ass about the forum. Harsh, but true. Giz and Dave don't read the forum, don't care about the opinions of the people who write here and don't pay attention to their messages, praises or flames. I've had confirmation from Giz herself -- she wrote to me (in reply to a pm) and stated it candidly:
Of course, this also explains why the trolls and haters in the forum had so little success when they tried to pressure the creative team. People like Fluffy or Error of Logic practically spend their lives glued to their screens, posting huge bricks of text to bash the comic and denounce the evils of the authors... and they are systematically ignored, as if they weren't there. Of course, knowing that Giz and Dave have never ever read their messages, this comes as no surprise. I kinda wonder, though: do these little trolls know the truth? How would they feel if they knew they have wasted years of their lives writing here, trying to influence Giz & Dave, for nothing? Oh, the schadenfreude of it all.
This was fun. It was fun while it lasted, and it'll be fun on future rereads. Thank you, Giz and Dave, for your hard work -- for staying true to yourselves all along, and creating real comic masterpieces.
