Crappy life comic, now with colour!

Completely true story, I swear. Besides Amam being coporeal and everything.

I was invited to a fellow schoolmate's 18th birthday thing. I...don't really talk to people at school. It's a nature and nurture thing...I take after my dad who was a chemistry lab monitor in his lunchtimes at school (enough said), and I'm personally emotionally and socially scarred. But the girl turning 18 is an awesome person, and I'm in biology with her.

My mum really did cry when I got the invite. She was so surprised. "People *sob* do *sob* like you! *sniffle*"

~lootz, the only person that I can talk to properly, was there, but had to leave after an hour, leaving me by myself to make small talk with drinking teenages for two extra hours before I could go home and bounce around until Doctor Who started. It was good to be there, and great when I could involve myself in a conversation (usually about school), but I think that Amam would have been better at the party. He would have drunken all the booze and then hit on most of the girls.

I really can't relate to people my age. I just can't understand them.

Oh, and Amam and I would have ended up wearing practically the same thing if we both went. His trenchcoat was designed before I got mine, but they are almost the same. His has a hood, that's the only difference. And he would wear his 'literary construct' shirt that I gave him after I chucked him off a building while I wear my COEXIST shirt (love that shirt)

*ehem* Back to the comic... :lmao: i think i woke my mom up from laughing XD "So i'm talking to a figment of my imagination instead" XDXD awesome pic :D

Lol i know kinda how you feel i had one party and people came i talk and mingled but the majority i was hiding and pretending i was a talking tree, I found out that it was more entertaining to talk the tree than to the people but i usually talk to the social retards its nice just to sit in a high stressed place and laugh at all the non-social retards especially when there REALLY social then you take out the camera!

You're imaginary figments talk to you at parties too? Omg, I thought it was just me :O_o: Then again, I do tend to drink things other than water when fending off social awkwardness ... that may be why ;)
Amam is so cute. Your figments give you alcohol. Rock on ;)

I have an almost constant stream of narrative running through my head, my imagination is too hyperactive. I try writing it down, but unfortunately it doesn't go in any particular order :P When I'm not thinking about storyline I tend to imagine conversations with my characters. Mainly Amam :D He tries to give me alcohol, but his heart isn't really in it. He figures that if I don't drink it its more for him :D

You and me both ... the results are incredible complex and interwoven storylines, little actual productivity, and an astounding amount of characters doodled on my school notebooks ;)

Oh my gosh, I really know how you feel. I am so bad in social situations, I'm too shy and I'd just rather be by myself! [Or with like, the two people that I can talk to normally.]
I love the comic though-- when you think about it it'd be fun to have your characters actually being corporeal. :P

Aphrael7 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2007
I'm also too shy for social situations. I'm always better by myself :P But I don't think that all of my characters would be much fun to be around if they were corporeal...Taeli gets angry too easily and when she is mad things catch on fire. It'd be okay if I had really fireproof clothing :P

Oh yes. Hehe. Social situations are just... Well uncomfortable. You know, the whole loud crowds around. 'Specially if people are drinking and all.
XD You know, this is a good point. If you have somewhat violent or dangerous characters, maybe it is best that they don't exist!
Much safer for you, and the general public.

You know...I can relate to this only too well...because there's no one too old to be discussing life with a figment of their imagination (*punts Ronts for good measure*)...and yes, small talk is scary...especially at 18 and onward...eep...

This is hilarious because its so familar. :ahoy: Best of luck! (*snerks some more at "same outfit awkwardness"*)

Everyone always wants to talk about what boys they think are cute! *headdesk* I swear I am asexual, which makes these sorts of conversations very difficult. I also have no idea who certain famous people are. Damn small talk! :shakefish: The figments of my imagination are much more fun to talk too.

Indeed. And they don't require excessive bloody knowledge of gossip of who-did-what-in-soandso-bathroom-with-soandso... Even as a guy I seem to have to require this knowledge.

What the heck? (Though figments /do/ have fun dirty secrets about soandso mythical creatures... :D You know, interesting stuff.)

lmao. how funny. my friend had a party yesterday for her 3 yr old son so i went, and took my boys with me, and stood around not knowing what to say to anyone. they all talked about sports and college. and everyone else's kids were like 3, and my kids are way older than that. Seth was like, "Tell me again why I had to come with you?" I said, "So I'd have someone to talk to?"

you are so not alone. :)
