I think that's enough syrup for now, don't you?

Same old thing...as soon as you get a little money, it goes right towards debts, am I right? HAHA

PANCAKES!

Remember this important lesson, kids: never give in to peer pressure unless there’s money in it.

The trio of regulars applying said pressure to sweet, innocent Gogo are Bill, Larry, and Todd; the “House BLT”, as it were. Blue-collar local yokels of the sort that can stretch breakfast into an hour or two of lingering at the counter, nursing cups of coffee and watching life’s rich pageant unfold around them. Happily for them, life’s unveiled a horse of a different color today in the form of an apparently bottomless stomach sitting a few seats away.

This fact is also apparent to the bystanding Fishers. Gogo may be rather expensive.

Aaaand we’re back!

Okay, maybe it isn’t the most explosively dynamic way to get back into the swing of things, but breakfast gives you energy for LATER stuff, so PANCAKES!

Thanks for waiting, by the way! Sorry for the hiatus!

Only moments ago, she was putting the burn on colossal beasts. Now she's marooned in some desert with no kaiju in sight.

Absolutely nothing further can possibly come of this. The End.



...for now.

Whew!

Sorry for that there delay again, folks! I ran into some problems with my old (legal) copy of Photoshop not wanting to function properly, and, long story short, spent a good deal of time getting back to "regular" functionality here at HQ.

At any rate, remember how Gogo came to town a couple nights ago? Well, the desert is hardly right next door to Andy's neck of the woods, but Gogo's not alone in making explosive entrances.

Stay tuned!

This sequence of story was one of those instances where I thought I was more or less settled on how this particular conversation between Andy and Gogo ended: on page 120, which was going to be the “end” of the first leg of the story. However, Levi pointed out that Andy hadn’t asked the rather obvious question about Pablo yet. Andy would certainly have gotten around to it—I’m sure he’s got PLENTY of questions for Gogo—but now it did seem strange that he’d save this one for later. So now we’ve popped THAT can of worms about “Papa”, hehe

It was also bugging me a little bit that we introduced the idea of Gogo “staying” with the Fishers somehow, but we didn’t really indicate where Gogo was going to be spending this particular night. The thought of Andy inviting Gogo into his apartment would definitely have been fun, but it also would’ve extended into more of a scene than I wanted to make of it, and I couldn’t easily see Andy taking on the hassle of explaining the situation to his mom, either. So I settled on the “sleeping out on the porch” idea as a simpler solution, safe in the knowledge that Gogo isn’t one to balk at sleeping outdoors, and setting the scene for this little bit of epilogue.

Of course, this all leads to one MORE question from Andy, and just a LITTLE more follow-up before we FINALLY move on. Stay tuned! (and sorry about the wait, hehe)

FINALLY! Sorry about the wait between updates!

- van
Originally, my intent was for this to be the final page of "Book One" of Bomango, before jumping into the next chapter. While it's possible that may still be the case, I may instead tack on a slight bit of epilogue ahead of officially declaring this "THE LAST PAGE".

Either way, this is no ending, because now that we're more or less all good and set up, it's time to finally get a little NUTS :D

- van
My apologies for the lull between updates! Between a short holiday out to Minnesota for a few days and the excitement of midterm elections, I've been adrift for a little bit there.

ANY-hoozle…

Things are getting a little more chummy-aggro here on the roof as the parameters of friendship begin to be explored!

- van
Gogo's being kind of nice about it, but Andy's got a point.

As you can see now, the entire point of this story is to present a scenario in which people from Wisconsin are interesting in any way that doesn't involve cheese or the Green Bay Packers. It turns out that in order to do that, you need to find a hybrid monster-human from another dimension who's never even heard of the place.

Now that's taken care of, and we can move on.

YOUR OWN...

PERSONAL...

BUTT ITCH...

Heartwarming sentiment, but not a nickname you really want to be stuck with.

- van
Things that make perfect sense in your head sometimes turn silly when you articulate them out loud, like "I escaped peril in another world by smashing my way to safety in another dimension as a massive kaiju", but Andy's pretty chill about it.

A good egg, that kid.

- van
...and that's how she got here.

Teller-warping.

VERY scientific.

"Beyond these Stygian skies
Our fortress lies
Across the Rainbow Bridge!"

...what, me miss an Ayreon reference? Perish the thought!

- van
Let's finish up that flashback, shall we?
but Gogo owns up to it pretty well. We'll call it a moral tie game.
"Oh yeah...that stuff I did to scare you earlier..."

Accounting for one's behavior is always such a DRAG, man...hehe

- van
Gogo is BACK, and talkin' CRAZY!

Get on up there, kiddo!
