- I'm beginning to feel really shitty about all these updates I'm missing and also beginning to worry I may have to cut back to one update a week because of my new job being a massive energy/time suck. Ugh.
I don't want that though.
My days this week are all in one short cluster so I might be able to crack out two updates next week.
I'm still going to try like hell to get something out for tomorrow though... I'm getting super frustrated at myself.

Oh, and I forgot a couple things about the page itself.
Just some music references that pop up.
The poster in his living room is for a concert that featured Pavement, Broken Social Scene and Band of Horses (as well as Beach House and a couple other bands) It's copied from a real poster for that concert. Likewise, the design for Chris's t-shirt is from a real Los Campesinos! t-shirt.

Los Campesinos! have lots of slightly bitter romantic songs, so it fits that Chris would like them, I think.

Anyway, here's a new page!
Thanks for reading and I hope you all enjoy!

Hehe like it!
The speech boubles look a little too bright though.I have seen night scenes where the speech boubles are not white but pale blue, it looks quite nice. You could try it.

And thus, Chris learned a valuable lesson about home security.

Also, I am very sad to see shirtless Chris go.

Ooh, new banner!
I think it might look better with more space between Brookemonster and the edge. Unless uncomfortable is the desired effect?
Edit: The high-contrast backdrop makes the text hard to read too D:

@eishiya: It's hard to read? I thought it was pretty okay, but thank you for the feedback, I'll fiddle with it a bit.
I should probably move Brooke though.
it was more sorted before I remembered the dimensions for the banners and I had to rearrange things. XD

@Ang: Yep, when you're being stalked, lock your windows.

@Sunshine Moonlight: I had them a sort of bluish shade that matched with the actual scenes originally, but it made the text sort of hard to read so I decided against leaving them that colour and just made them white. Thank you for the suggestion though. Maybe I can see if I can't find a way to make them fit the scene better while still being easy enough to read?

It's legible, but takes conscious effort. Ideally, text should be readable at a glance. It isn't so bad that that you should really worry about it (with this banner design, there really is no good way around it), but it's something to keep in mind for next time.

I'm generally not a fan of coloured bubbles, but I think here they could work. A very pale blue would darken them a little bit, but it might be enough to reduce the contrast.

I hope this blue is alright and not too hard to read. XD
I also moved Brooke a little in the banner and changed the font to be just black and that is a lot more legible, I think.
Thank you again. =)

Chris, you are such a grump! Since when is it abnormal to have a random girl break in and half-smother you? Sounds pretty legit to me.

Also, I'm liking the new banner ;D I'm definitely a fan of the dream realm you made ;)

Her intentions are great but maaaybe just a little... overbearing XD Then again with someone like Chris that might just be warranted

Also, cool new banner! ... what does Le Valse de Reves mean anyway :V

@constant_boredom: I know right!? What's his deal. And aw, thank you! Hee, not all the dream realms look like that one, but Chris's does for now and I'm glad you dig it! =)

@Zane: Maaaaybe just a bit. XD
And it means "The Waltz of Dreams", it's sort of hokey sounding, I know. The story itself was was inspired by "La Valse Des Monstres" from the Amelie soundtrack, the sort of dark, circus-y feel I got from the song inspired a lot of the concepts that come into play later on so I made the title sort of an homage to it.
And thanks! I'm glad you like the new banner. =) I felt like it needed some changing from just random Chris staring angrily at the readers. XD
