For the first time since 2011, BICP has a new site header. Or rather, it has four new site headers, randomized. Click through different pages (or just refresh the one you’re on) to collect ’em all.
You might have noticed other things neatened-up in the layout recently. For instance, all these buttons finally color-coordinate, with each other and with the rest of the site:
But the headers, those seemed worth writing home about.
Should’ve realized that committing to a busier updating schedule would be jinxing myself.
So earlier this evening my laptop’s power cord, which has been on the fritz for a couple of weeks, finally gave up the ghost. And the one I had on order was either delivered to the wrong place or stolen off the front porch, because it ain’t here.
I’ll get another one, but not within the next three hours, and possibly not even within the next two days. Which means BICP’s update schedule is temporarily borked.
You’d think this could have happened a couple weeks ago, when BICP actually had a buffer in the queue, but noooo.
(I’m typing this post on the small emergency backup laptop, which will let me keep up with the internet, but is not strong enough to run art programs. It’s barely strong enough to run Firefox. It once crashed on startup.)
My deepest apologies, readers. Leif & Thorn still has plenty of queue, so no worries there, and BICP will resume hopefully by Friday, possibly next week. Cross your fingers the gremlins won’t win this round.
Panels you want clear/in-color versions of, characters you’d like to see together, costumes or AUs you’d like them to try on?
Thursday’s BICP page is being bumped until Friday due to a bad case of Artist Is Falling Asleep Standing Up, so I figured I would open the floor to art prompts in the meantime.
In other news, Leif & Thorn continues on-schedule, and the next strip is gonna be a fun one.
Tuesday’s page, for the first time since the start of chapter 19, will not be up on midnight Tuesday. And it was such a good run, too! Made it all the way into June before slipping.
Look forward to the page at…some time in the evening.
While you’re waiting, why not backread the official But I’m A Cat Person Tumblr tag? (Art! Crossovers! Bonus Q&As!) Or get sucked into the black hole of fannish attention via the BICP TVTropes entry.
And of course, Leif & Thorn continues to update at either midnight or 1 AM, depending on whether it was Daylight Savings Time when I queued the page. (No, seriously. WordPress is quirky like that.)
Turns out I haven’t run out of these!
More of the webcomics that put girls and women front and center. Even better if they have shippable subtext. Best of all if there’s outright f/f in canon.
Waterworks — possibly-supernatural mystery adventure, ongoing. A woman visits the local waterworks to confront them about her pipes spewing sludge, and gets caught up in much more weirdness than expected. Video-game-ish format a la Homestuck, and one of the few that has kept its momentum instead of petering out.
Flaky Pastry — fantasy comedy, ongoing. It’s basically a wacky roommate comedy, except in a world where the roommates include a goblin and an elf, rivals include a vampire and a robot, and the landlord is a dragon. The cast is mostly women, with a rich variety of relationships, including some refreshingly frank romance.
Chaos Life — autobiographical gag-a-day, ongoing. Fun and relatable strips about a queer couple (f/x) and their adorable cats.
Serenity Rose — fantasy drama with gorgeous artwork, complete. Our heroine is a shy twentysomething witch/cartoonist whose uncontrolled powers have caused a couple of high-profile disasters, living in a town that’s half serious-ancient-magic, half witchcraft-theme-park. Lovely AU worldbuilding that grows up on you slowly (think SU). First time I read this, I remember getting a serious “confused lesbian” vibe, but figuring it was more wishful thinking than authorial intention…and then, nope, turns out it was all intentional.
…and if you got linked here from offsite, do start reading But I’m A Cat Person (modern fantasy comedy/drama, ongoing), about the struggles of a bunch of queer women to wrangle their dubiously-sentient shapeshifting pet battle monsters.
