@tinyhydra If there were an Agree reaction button on profile posts, I would have slammed it so hard just now. Mar 3, 2018

      I got up early specifically to work on the comic so of course I'm scrolling through Tumblr instead of comicking.

      @pixels Coughs Loudly is a beautiful work of art and regretting nothing is exactly the thing you should do.

      @sicknastyspades I don't always have to have context to enjoy. Might wind up hunting context down myself, though.

      @Elaienar thanks. It feels weird to complain about given that its a constant in my life by now to eithe rbe in pain or on pain killers but meat suit majorly failing in unique and novel ways is A BIT MORE CONCERNING ACTUALLY and I might have a doctor put me in the hospital for a big times checkup in a few weeks over that so that is a thing.
      1. Elaienar
        Elaienar
        Oh wow, that sucks. D: I hope your big times checkup results in good things!

        And I think a lot of people with constant/chronic pain feel like that? My mom does, she's been having a hard time getting used to saying "YES I hurt and would like it to stop, please."

      omfg we just used the exact same wording. "a polite business transaction."

      a polite business transaction, i think the idea is, basically. which yeah, "thanks" might be totes meaningless as what it literally means yet as a signifier of "i see you as a person, not just a dehumanized automaton," it does mean something?! one of those social cues, i guess.

        Yes, I think you are correct. Saying thanks for something you're paying someone to do isn't necessary, so I guess the fact that they do it anyway indicates goodwill and yeah, seeing you as a person and not just a fleshy dispenser of services.

      :D nice. and yeah, like it is easy to end up saying "thanks" ad infinitium when people just keep on saying/doing things that it seems appropriate to say "thanks" for and rude not to. like, if i don't say, "thanks" again, will they think i hate them or something ridiculous like that?
      1. Elaienar
        Elaienar
        Yeah, I get that too. And then sometimes I get mixed up and say thanks for something I'm not sure I should be - my boss sees me off each night with "thank you" so of course I have to say "thank you" too, but like, I thought this was a business transaction?

        If I say "thank you" does that make it a social interaction? or just a polite business transaction? Am I saying thank you for giving me work, or money, or both, or what is even going on here I'm so embarrassed and confused now.

        (Yeah so I may be terrified of my bosses because they're super polite and nice and I'm not sure if that means we are friends or what. Am I allowed to be friends with a boss, that seems irregular.)

      @Elaienar thanks again! (goddamn it I hope i got the etiquette right and aren't saying "thanks" too much here.)
      1. Elaienar
        Elaienar
        I have no idea what the etiquette about how many times you're allowed to say "thanks" is either. Actually, when I was a kid my siblings and I used to play a game that went like this:
        Apr 20, 2015
      2. Elaienar
        Elaienar
        Player One: Thanks!
        Player Two: You're welcome!
        Player One: Thanks for saying "you're welcome"!
        Player Two: Thanks for saying "thanks" for saying you're welcome!

        Repeat until bored or laughing too much to continue. Anyway, yeah, you're good.

      Accidents so far: scraped up my ankle with a razor, hit my leg with a car door, slipped in mud and executed a perfectly elegant pratfall.

    "Miss"
    Perpetually sleep-deprived energy-depleted webcomic artist with an interest in a lot of things, like languages, theology, human behaviour, culture and society, the way the light filters through the blanket over my garret window (I'm an artist so I live in a garret, starving), and why there are only two pairs of socks in my drawer right now when I'm positive that there were two dozen just the other day. I like to write but I don't do it a lot. I don't enjoy drawing (usually) but I do it so much that I think I must like it.

    My name is pronounced el-ay-en-ar (like the letters L-A-N-R) and can be shortened to El or Elai if you like. It's the name of the character I usually played as in my fantasy RPG forum days, and it's a bastardization of Quenya elen (star) + ear (sea). I've used it pretty much everywhere for about a decade.

    Signature

    I draw webcomics.
