A broke college student with aspirations of becoming an animator someday. I LOVE to draw and paint, write, read, play my drums, play soccer, listen to music and hang out with my friends. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart and always try to look for the best in people. I've got a thing for guys with long hair and musicians *sigh*. I'm a big nerd for cartoons and video games (Currently addicted to: Prince of Persia and Guitar Hero 2) I'm currently attending the Art Institue of Houston and am LOVENG IT!! Hopefully that won't interfere with the comic too much, but if it does, I'M SORRY! I also plot to take over the world someday...I'm just not sure how to do that precisely.

Guuuuuuuh, I think I'll have to switch updates to Saturdays. I can't seem to keep up to get anything done by Friday >< Sorry guys :C
On the bright side, lookey here! This page was really FAR too much fun to plan out. All I kept thinking when I was drawing it (with an obscenely large grin on my face) was "tsun-tsun! dere-dere!~" :D
Oh, and what would you guys like to see me do as a special Valentine's day picture? Suggestions anyone?
Wow...Not even back a mont, and I already miss two updates *shoots self in the head, Kim Pine style* x_x

Apologies guys, no excuse except I didn't give myself enough time/room to catch myself up. I'll do my best to NOT fall behind again!

AND! As per request, if you guys want to keep up with what I'm doing and see when updates will be late, check out my twitter feed! https://twitter.com/#!/Tempest_Lavalle

So, I wanted Sarah and her brother to have a verbal exchange here at first, but I didn't want to take up too many pages to expose important stuff, so I gave them just a funny little visual thing they always do. And Mikey wouldn't be a good 12 year old if he didn't try to take advantage of his big sister's weakened state to try and beat her....to no avail X3.

I'm still fiddling with size and quatliy, let me know if this is ok!
:I....I feel like a jackass. I didn't even realize the comic hadn't updated till today. Turns out I set it to update on January 13th of NEXT YEAR....*facedesk*
This makes me look like a right tool, after saying I'd be updating on time and all that hooey. BLUH. Sorry guys >< I dropped the ball. BUT ANYWAY! As per a suggestion, I promise to let you guys know when I'm going on a hiatus should the need arise again (which it probably will at some point, but no worries).
I'm fiddling with the size and quality of the pages. Let me know if you can still read the words alright on this page!
*slowly peeks out from behind the webpage*
Heh...hey everyone! Yeah I know, it's been well over a year since I
last updated and I can't TELL YOU how terrible I've felt about it,
especially since I've gotten a few more new readers! Suffice to say,
life got crazy hectic for a good while, especially since I've had two
HUGE life changing events happen, including my GRADUATION FROM COLLEGE
:D!!!
But I digress, I'm back! And I'm going to take things slow for now, just to get my pace back. Updates to resume on Fridays.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate y'alls patience and encouragement!
There is SO MUCH I can't wait to get into with Sarah and her story, and I hope you guys will come along for the ride!
So without further ado, we return to our story!
Flirts!
*GASP* Oh noes! Tis Friday the 13th! *dons her lucky hat*
Hope this most notorious of days is treating you guys well!
Oddly enough in this page, it was easy for me to decide what Evee would to do flirt with Jack...but I was kinda stumped as to what JACK would do. Question: what do you fellas do when you flirt with a girl? What physical things do you do to hint to some lucky lady you're interested in them? I'm curious.
Cause let me tell ya, searching it on google was a mistake....>~<
*ahem*...Still Here ^^;

I still can't believe this happened XD
I know, this is about a week late. And I haven't updated in FOREVER.

Suffice to say, life has not been very kind to me since January, so I've been trying to get stuff in order. I'll try to start updating by the weekend, but I can't make any promises. Hopefully, this little bit of fluff will do for now.

Those of you who read Heroes United or Heroes Alliance or Shell will recognize Vora's little crush. If not, YOU SHOULD GO READ THEM ALL RIGHT NOW :U

I'm so sorry everyone. Thank you for your patience <3

This was AMAZING XD I don't think I've laghed this hard at ANYTHING Pokemon related in YEARS! WELL DONE!
I hope you all will forgive me for the lack of updates (again!) Once school finished, I had a lot of things to take care of for NEXT quarter at school (WHICH IS GOING TO BE MY LAST! WOOT!) so I've been rather busy. I'm now currently in lovely Florida, spending time with my family. But I will start updating again come Tuesday (maybe sooner if the Christmas goodies run out quick X3).

That being said, I would like to say to each and every one of you, have a very Happy Holiday, whatever it is you celebrate. No matter what you do, this time of year is about sharing, about caring for others and being thankful for what you have and for the people you love. So, today, make sure you share a smile with someone, a "Merry Christmas", or even a hug.

Merry Christmas guys :3

Eeee! This fills me with SUCH mirth! Thank you secret Santa!! <3 <3
This makes me laugh SO HARD X3 I still love you, even if you would be a naff wizard <3
I hope everyone who celebrates it had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving ^^ I know I did :D

Ok, first, I would like to apologize to any and all psych majors reading! I really have the utmost respect for it and have a deep fascination with psychology and sociology.

It's just that, sometimes when you know someone who understands your feelings better then you do, and they point it out in such a logical way, you just wanna stick your tongue out at them and say, "Shush, let me be irrational and stupid for a little bit longer"

Least that's how I feel X3
Hey everyone! Happy Thanksgiving to you all! The comic shall resume on Saturday!

I'd like to take a little time to say a few things. No matter how you celebrate today, even if you don't necessarily celebrate Thanksgiving, think about all that you are grateful for. I have had some difficult times in my life, but I am thankful for what I have today. I am thankful for my wonderful friends, my awesome family, and for the fact that we have the privilege of enjoying this holiday with each other. I am thankful that I am healthy, that I have a wonderful home, and that I am never want for someone to help me out. I am thankful that even in the worst of times, I have people who can and will help me.

But I'm especially thankful for ALL OF YOU. You guys make what I do here very special to me. You guys are the reason I push myself whenever I can to make the best damn comic for you guys. So here's to you. Here's to us.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


...Anyone got any antacids? X3

Skipped a week cause I got behind in some school stuff. I really didn't like drawing the hospital room. Mostly because I wanted to make sure it was identified as one, so I used reference and it was a pain in the patella to get it to where I liked it >:I
Otherwise, I'm happy with this page. I've learned about glow effects from these last 3 pages then I've learned in the past couple years messing with photoshop XD

I've never been hospitalized (knock on wood!) but my sister has been. And even though her injuries weren't as severe as we feared, she looked like HELL lying in that damn bed. Poor Sarah :C
Also, look! Sarah's little brother is here!
First and foremost, I'd like to thank EVERYONE for your kind words and condolences. You guys fill my life with sunshine :3

So...drawing Marty so distraught had me feeling the same. Beware: Drama llamas are about to be set free. 8|
I apologize for not updating last week. I'm afraid the passing of my dog hit me quite hard and I became a bit distraught for a good portion of the week. To some of you, this may seem trivial, but Fancy was in my life for 15 years. I loved her deeply and her passing has left me deeply saddened. The only thing that kept me from sinking into a ball of grief was school and some wonderful friends (you guys know who you are). So I beg your forgiveness on the lateness of this page.

Even with the unhappiness of last week, I really liked working on this page. I really love hearing Jack's voice as he sings in my head. Not to mention this is one of my favorite songs :3
