I really hate doing filler but it's better than saying nothing. Regardless if I get the comic finished by next week or not I will post be posting Con pics. :D

No worries! I totally understand the small things piling up into a big thing. Getting your cosplay finished is a very important thing and can get stressful, been there done that 🙂 So focus on that and most importantly, have fun at the con!
Also, they're not excuses but relatable reasons and we appreciate even the smallest note letting us know you're still there ☺

Denver comic con is always a good time and the guest list this year looks really good.

(I occasionally indulge in filking, for which I probably ought to offer my profound apologies -- or would if I had any shame at all. ^_^. In any case, I originally put this up for another webcomic, but it seems that it will work here as well and may possibly amuse, so I took the liberty of reposting it here. The musical reference link is here because some people may not have heard this one before. Note: I based this on what I heard from the video, not what I got from the lyrics sites, because there was (to me) an inexplicably large disparity. Constructive feedback, both positive and negative, is always welcome. Please enjoy.)

(Michael Jackson:)
You put the word out, you're looking for some help to fill the gap.
You hate to do it, but sometimes you just feel like total crap.
You check the files, in case you have some content in the buffer.
It's no surprise, there's nothing on the disc that you can use.
You're gonna lose.

When you got started, you thought drawing a comic would be fun.
Now it's your job and there's weekends that you never see the sun.
It isn't fair! You know just how the story needs to happen.
But deep inside, your characters are all of different minds,
Won't say their lines!

You have to wonder how long it's been since you last saved your work.
Another blackout, and you feel like you just might go berserk.
It always seems the system knows when you are up against it.
You're almost done! Maybe this time the world owes you some slack ...
Oh no, it's black!

(Vincent Price:)
Darkness falls across the LAN
The deadline hour is close at hand
Eager readers just can't wait
To see the latest page update.
And any artist caught up in
The whirl of Life's incessant spin
Confronts a choice caused by the stall:
To update late, or not at all.

Feel the tension in the air,
No matter how much you prepare.
And though you try to keep ahead
You need to sleep, you aren't undead.
Temptation grows, you know you need
To finally deliver.
So you give in and offer up
The evil of the filler!

(Michael Jackson:)
It's just a filler! Filler night.
You try to keep to sched, but nothing helps your aching head!
Filler! Filler night!
You hope that they'll forgive you for the filler, filler tonight!

It's just a filler! Filler night.
There's so much left to do before you give them something new.
Filler! Filler night!
You hope that they'll forgive you for the filler, filler tonight!

It's just a filler! Filler night.
You finally swear that yes, you're gonna get that UPS!
Filler! Filler night!
You hope that they'll forgive you for the filler, filler tonight!

(Repeat filler under credits, with dancing fanboys)

It works here too - and will be easier for me to find now. Again = FotFL! [Flopping on the floor, laughing]

Well done, sir. Or other sapient. Will we see the cosplay results then? Because that is cool too.

I love the comic. I love the commentary. But what I love the most is the joy I sense from you as you post 'IE' and how much you love the characters/setting/some of the game's absurdity. If you need time to rest and refresh the joy? Take it! This needs to be fun for all of us!

PS = also! Con pics good!

I don't think anyone will get upset of you decide to push the comic to biweekly for a while, instead of weekly, if that's what you need to take care of real life issues and still keep posting comics for your fans. Life does get in the way of fun sometimes, and we don't want you to burn yourself out on something because it's just adding stress on top of other stresses.

We completely understand. You don't owe us anything, and shouldn't feel as if you do; take all the time you need. A late comic is far preferable to a burned-out artist.

As a more general piece of advice: 2017 is not a good year for meticulous plans. Think trajectories, not paths.

Good luck!

Good luck I hope the rest of 2017 quiets down for you. Have fun at the Con! I'm sure everyone who reads and enjoys IA knows that IRL is more important than the fun stuff we do online... take a break, come back when you can :)

It's okay. Get what you need to clear cleared and then continue the comic.

Take care of yourself! <3

I hope you're able to push through, be sure to put your own health first, and have a wonderful time at the Con! We absolutely love your series, but you shouldn't have to sacrifice your peace of mind in order to meet some quota, web comics should be fun for the creator too <3

Definitely take some time to chill out and get things sorted...I definitely understand the 'Death by papercuts' situation where any one of those little frustrations by themselves would be easily handleable, but in combination they make you want to put your head through a wall. :-/
