Does the world need another one of these stories? Probably not. Do people have better things to do than saunter into someone's life and completely rearrange everything? Probably.

Meeting Maverick was an accident. Meeting Maverick’s friends was a bigger accident. There is no other way for Trace to describe it. Boys like that aren’t just handed to people like him, and when they are? oof...

Sounds exhausting.

uuuuuuuuuuhjdj
Happy summer! AND the end of mercury retrograde-- it's been wild my guys. I'm starting to be more & more okay with taking breaks. And more & more okay with Not making promises.

I have one promise!!! One promise that matters. I'll always make this story for My heart first. Public second. It's too soon in the game to treat this like a job. i'm married to this story & a bitch gotta stay in the honeymoon period for a lil bit.

ASIDE FROM THAT--- NEW CHARACTER PROFILES!!! check out Maverick's parents. and his cats. I'm so excited to finally share these.

As always, thank you for your eyes & your hearts & your time.

I'll be back. Hopefully sooner than expected ; ,)

much much love,

mickey.
this PAGE..
..gave me a stroke. I'm not outrageously happy with the layout or the colors, but I don't wanna break my brain with it anymore. OPEN CRIT!!!! y'all are artists too!!! Can someone tell me why the colors seem /off/ compared to the last page?

Despite that, i'm very proud. There are a lot of personal easter eggs i hid in this page <3

thank you for reading, and I'll see you next week (even if the update is delayed a bit. I'm visiting my girlfriend for the week. She is highkey priority because I miss her)

as always, thank you for reading.

much much love,

mickey

@contemporarygay: Thank you :"

Glad to know I put a smile on your face ^-^

Keep the great work! <3
@Sam: uwu https://tapas.io/series/we-stubborn-prideful-creatures !!!! The text is blurry as shit 'cuz I had to compress pages but! It's here! and hopefully more mobile friendly
@Xabel Mind: THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!! and thank you for sticking around. Always makes me smile when u leave kind words on my pages.
@Sam: <3 thank you so much for reading!!!! Very understandable about the navigation LOL. It annoys me too. I tried webtoon for a short while, but the upload requirements were too much of a hassle D: i had to save separate images and compress my files down waaaaayy low. It messed with image quality so much that I trashed it. Also I'm not crazy about the vertical format. TAPAS THO. YES. I have plans to publish on Tapastic very soon! I'll have to re-research controversy surrounding the site (I know a lot of creators ended up leaving for reasons). But I will let everyone know in a post when pages are available on a more mobile-friendly platform!
Oh, my gosh X"D

Welcome back! ^o^
I am absolutely ecstatic that We Stubborn Prideful Creatures is back! Just a quick question though, will this comic also be uploaded on Tapastic or Webtoon? I love this comic, but navigating Smackjeeves can be difficult at times. Either way, keep up the amazing work, ContemporaryGay!
WOAH ok so
hiatus is DEFEATED!

look, this year was crazy. If you wanna catch up on the personal stuff, i'll be making a news post explaining some deetz.

otherwise, enjoy the update! my heart is so happy to be back, truly. I'm lucky to be healthier in love with everything. thank you all.

mickey
love your stuff, the car animation was really good
@Elaine P.: I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. And I'm so happy you found my little project!
This is all mine. From the storyboards to the pencils to the lines to the colors. And the site itself. It was definitely a feat, but it's my baby.
You have kindled so much of my creative energy. I'm so grateful. I haven't forgotten about that peacock you let me paint on my t-shirt. Those little things were monumental.
Can't wait to see you again soon. Thank you for seeking out my little corner of the universe. Much love
Proud
Hi Mickey Dyer, I am so proud of you. This art is awesome. Is it all yours or do you have some prisoners in art catering to your every whim? Keep up the great work. Selfishly, I hope I was of some motivation for your art. But, it's from your hands and mind now, so the world is yours! So proud.
@samdad: LOL, maybe a lil biased. thank you <3 tell the cats I said hello
your a pretty good cartoonist.i may be biased
.i like em
@contemporarygay: C'mon, he's gorgeus with the hairclip! XD

Oh, and https://www.linguee.com/
I rarely use it but it's fantastic to find rare expressions, cause it searchs through texts from various sources so you can see how others solved that gap between languages :D

I say it cause I also started like you and I ended up relying in those three due to practicality and usefullness :3

The heck, do I look like I'm selling it? o-o"
@Xabel Mind: THANK U LOL!!!! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

and thanks for the reference! I'll be sure to use it to triple-check my translations
I loved the last one X'D

Dunno what's your language, but... I use http://www.wordreference.com/ to confirm the words that I use when I translate, it shows the meaning depending on the situation to apply (Then I confirm once again by paragraphs in Google translator just to correct verbal tenses) :P
SO MAYBE I HAVE FINALLY REALIZED.....
.
...that I can post little bonus comics in between updates to avoid overwhelming myself! AND satisfy my desire to post regularly on this page! wild.

Why haven’t I been doing this earlier? It’s a lovely way to get you all familiar with the cast without really spoiling anything. seeing as it will be a little while before we get into some serious character arcs.

In the bottom comic, Trace’s mom is asking where her earrings are, and he’s screaming back “UHHHHHH RIGHT HERE!” i think the visuals made that relatively easy to interpret, but it's always good to clarify. Also! I don’t speak Italian! I use a blend of ReversoContext and my friend Klaire (klairehumanoid on Youtube. she makes really amazing content guys!!!) for my educational Italian needs. Didn’t use her for this one ‘cause they were simpler phrases and seemed to repeat themselves verbatim when I google searched them in a sentence. Let’s hope I got it right.

Thanks for tuning in for this little intermission! did u like it?! what was your favorite of the three?

I’ll try to crank out an actual page for us next week <3

Until then, take care everyone.
