Blind Date II Pairings

Okay after a random drawing of names from a hat - here's your Blind Date II pairings. (Click read more to find out the pairings)

The rules are simple: the two of you brainstorm out and create a comic in the spirit of Valentines Day. Define "spirit of" however you want (we're not going to be as strict as the WCCA is with the Romantic Comics category).

We will start posting submissions on Valentines Day (February 14th) on a first-in, first-up basis and keep posting them as they come in through the month of February. I'd prefer to post the comics at frightnight.org to prevent future link-rot, but I can link to something posted elsewhere too. Either way email me at xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com with the essential information. The absolute deadline for turning in Blind Date II comics will be February 25th.

Also try and link up with your partner early next week - if you have trouble getting connected or someone quits talk to me next week and we'll try to sort something else out for you.

If you have trouble finding contact info for your partner (first, check their website and try to contact them thru their Comixpedia user id, if they have one) email me and I'll see if I have their email already.

I'm just going to give a heads up.

fesworks's picture

Since I am presenting an award for the WCCA, My time has been taken over until the 14th (when they are due as well) So Mine won't show up until after the 14th, but I should have ours in well before the 25th.

That's ok

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

First in, first posted will be the procedure. We'll try to space out the posting of the Blind Date comics to give everyone maximum exposure.

Alrighty

Just wanted to double check ;)

Rules?

fesworks's picture

Are their rules on content? Web Rating? Swearing? I have one, possibly TWO things that may come into question.

Not really

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

No rules on content really. Other than your conscience and your government I guess :)

I'm a writer! At least, that's what they tell me! And I'm a fan of Flint Again! Pick me!

Yeah... I sent my partner,

thecolorblindartist's picture

Yeah... I sent my partner, John Troutman [pairing 10], an email to get a hold of him, and it has been a week with no replies. So... anyone up for a partner? I draw, so I need a writer.

I never got any mail. Did

I never got any mail. Did you try basilflint@gmail.com?

No

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

No I don't think I had that one for you. (You don't have that on your contact info for your Comixpedia acct).

I'll ping your partner with that email - see if we can get you two started.

Everything should've been

Everything should've been forwarding there anyway, though. I mean, I got the notification that you commented here. Plus, my e-mail address is pretty blatantly advertised on the Flint Again homepage. But whatever, let's get it going.

The "blatantly advertised"

thecolorblindartist's picture

The "blatantly advertised" email [which I'm assuming is the "E-Mail the Author" link] sends off to john@basilflint.com, not the basilflint@gmail.com. So... that's probably why you never got my email.

Email Me!

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

If you're having problems finding your partner email me at Xerexes AT comixpedia DOT com.

I'm going to email Troutman this morning for you.

Thanks!

EEZY, if you're out there...

EEZY, if you're reading this, I need you to get ahold of me soon. I emailed you via your site, and would have PMed you if you were registered. Thanks, and talk to you soon!

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

If you're in the I want to do this but missed the signup date (last Friday) feel free to try and connect with a partner this week - if you do have a pairing please email me so I can add you to the official roster.

After this week's grace period though I think we'll have to call it officially closed.

That would be great

Sounds like a plan. I would be happy to do all the drawing. That's what I am best at anyway. I do a daily comic...so I can produce pretty quickly too.

Am I too late?

Left a comment before but it didn't show up... :(

Am I too late?

I too would like to go to this prom, if I am not too late. That'll teach me to not keep up to date with Comixpedia.

If there is still time for this...I am way up for it.

If, after getting all these others involved, you still find yourself with an odd number, let me know. I'd be happy to write something for this, but have no desire to block anyone else from participating.

Is it too late to take part?

This is James I'm a writer from RPG-TV.com and I was just wondering if it's too late to take part in this? If it's okay id love to get involved :)

Sure

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

Well it is late (Friday was the deadline) but sure - I'll do art for ya or if some other artist steps up on Monday we'll pair you off. I guess I'll try to arrange pairing throughout Monday - but Monday's the last day!!! :)

If you're not listed up there and you wanted in I'll still try to arrange pairings the next couple of days. If the writer from Eat the Roses still wants to go (he posted above) maybe you could pair up with him? Were you going/able to do art?

Oh I want to do the art.

Nicholas Ivan Ladendorf's picture

Oh I want to do the art. I've been wanting to draw something I wan't writing for a while, but didn't want to spend too much time on it- so this is perfect.

(Sorry if it looked like I got bent out of shape, I was more freaking out that it said that I wasn't logged in/my password was incorrect)

Well, Eric got to you first...

But if he decides he doesn't want to do it, I'm here.

 

I write Eat the Roses btw (http://www.eattheroses.com). But it's on hiatus as the artist has gotten busy, so I have time. :)

Website Link

Looks like Ozark will be an interesting "date". I think we can come up with something great.

I did notice that neither me or Ozark has their website linked. Can you help us there?

Maybe. Hey Nicholas Ivan, I've got 2 questions:
1) Do you want to write this thing or do the art?
2) What color dress should I wear? Please say black.

Easy...

Xaviar Xerexes's picture

Easy there - it's the law of odd numbers and the pick of the draw. I've already been pretty clear up there - either we'll pair you up with someone else who wants in on Monday or I'll be happy to play.

Don't worry it'll all work - just chill until Mon/Tues...

I can't log in, it says I've only been a member for 45 days (I think I signed up years ago) and now I don't have a date.
