I love voice acting, video games and sketching. As of September 2015 I have entered the corporate world.... and it feels really nice!

Writing has recently been a huge passion of mine which has resulted in the resurrection of my current comic Roll To Save. I love making people smile and laugh. Peace and love forever, baby! <3

Sarah Vaughan - Black Coffee

Coffee is a very important part of the day for a lot of people. Sometimes it leads to the start of a brand new day! Other times it leads to a burglar with a gun, ready to rob the place you work at! Apparently coffee can be quite dangerous sometimes.
@sethtriggs: lol well she's not to that point yet but she's certainly not going out on a limb for that job XD
@Stephen: I think it's suffice to say that retail is pretty much in the eye of the beholder. Some people have worked in it for a good with no qualms whatsover.

In other cases, it can get as bad as Roxanne describes. And I admit, as the writer I'm a bit jaded when it comes to retail. I kind of have over 10 years worth of very bad experiences, so it's not done with unjustified malice.

When I was in high school, I was forced to choose between my job and attending my last chance at a talent show. Despite the fact I specifically asked for just that one night off. In another instance, working as a cashier at a grocery store, I was forced to clean the restroom even though we had hired people specifically for that job. All because some drunk doofus decided to use a urinal as a toilet. Again, my job being threatened if I didn't comply. Those are just two of my worst experiences.

Now yes, I know, retail isn't ALWAYS like that but dang son. For me, it really was. I don't expect everyone to like Roxanne or in fact, everyone in this comic. They're written specifically to be their own person and to live life their way. But I'l be darned if I don't voice my dislike for retail as profession. XD
@BarGamer: That is SO perfect XD
Harry Nilsson - Gotta Get Up

Some people enjoy what they do for a living. Roxanne isn't one of those people. I wanted to take this opportunity to shine some light on her daily life and her plans for the future. What better motivation to get a job you actually want than being subjected to retail? Which by the way, I maintain that you will never know true hell, unless you've had a job in that field.
@ValdVin: It wouldn't have taken too long. They lived with each other for a while, even before getting together so that would have helped him get more comfortable easier.

For John, once he overcomes his shyness about something (namely pet names here), it opens the proverbial flood gates and he just can't help himself XD
@xero: That's a darn good guess. Especially cause we haven't really seen hide or hair of her!
@BarGamer: John tends to roll poorly. Though he's WAY more cautious about that lately.
@Darkbunny: Thank you so much for letting me know, I think I fixed it! Not sure why it did that this time around... weird! o.o
James Ingram - One Hundred Ways

God I love writing for those two, they're so adorable together! This marks the ending to the 'Hobby Hunting' arc! I wanted to end on a potentially hopeful note. Has Heather really managed to change? Only time will tell! For now we're going to let these two love birds end the night. The next arc shall be filled with fiery enthusiasm, Murphy's law and a handful of surprises along the way!
Dionne Warwick - That's What Friends Are For

It's sometimes hard to keep in touch with good friends, especially when life takes you in very different directions. However that's not to say it's impossible to rekindle that friendship. It's totally possible to pick up where you left off. Heck, you'll have lots to talk about what with so much time having gone by.

That may not always be the case in reality but here in Roll To Save, I like airing on the side of optimism and positivity moreso than not.
@ValdVin: Hmm... that's a good question! X3

lol well I hope it isn't too perturbing. That's actually one of the reasons I wanted to focus on Irene for this arc. Gamers, nay, friends come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and ages. It all comes down to sharing common interests. =3
@Gildedtongue: You never know unless you try! Irene's giving it the ol' college try!
@Madelin: Hijinks are always possible in the world of RTS. However so are pleasant surprises =3
@ZSnazzy: Mmmm possibly =3
Bill Withers - Lean On Me

Losing touch with someone, doesn't mean it has to be forever.
@someone_else: Oh wow, yea I can imagine that they're hard to come by these days. I get my fill of traditional screen pinball games at a convention in the states called "MAGfest".

It's a celebration of all things video games and they always have a small army of pinball machines to play!
@sethtriggs: I'm glad you think so! We here are RTS pride ourselves in heartwarming content! X3
@ValdVin: I'm glad you like! Tailsteak was very on point with the designs there!
