my webcomic

Posted Over 1 Year ago by Aviatrix

Riven banned me from the discord because I got upset with Knuckles/Grey Echelon for threatening to rape me, and then showing me his penis. Ask me anything.

Sounds neat! Will check it out.

Your website isn't working by the way.

It's working on Firefox and Chrome on my end? Hmm. Weebly sucks, at any rate; I'm looking in to other options. It's just that their UI is so damn user friendly.

EDIT::

Riven was also confronted for his blatantly transphobic remarks and got mad and banned people for that, too. Apparently 'gaslighting' means 'pointing out why I am wrong'.

I used the www.furyofthedawn.com url to read(look at?) the first several(few?) pages.
The art is beautiful!
I think the writing is also well-done.
I’m intrigued by the world-building.
I look forward to having time to read more!

You've been wanting to finish a webcomic for years now. I remember we threw aroudn some ideas one based aorund a crappy short story I wr ote in high school and the other....Well th at's a long story that you may or may not remember. I remember seeing old designes of a woman in a bloodstained coat that you made like thee to four years ago. Sort of had a Two Fisted tale vibe that yo u would get from an old adventure serial damn sure I at least remember that much

@Aviatrix:
I’m at the page where Edmond Locke is hanging upside-down in front of all those big gears with a crescent wrench in his hand.
How do I get past that?

@chiarizio

It's cover art for the next chapter! This is a new character named Ben. You'll get to meet him once I get off my procrastinating butt and draw more. I felt weird about posting just a new cover and this is exactly why lol

So that’s Ben, not Edmond? Oops!

Is Captain Locke modeled on you?

I am neither tall, hot, nor redheaded... I actually had Rita Hayworth in mind for modeling her.

@Aviatrix:
I meant a model for her personality.
She flies; you’re an Aviatrix; I thought you might have other interests in common.
(Though I’ve seen nothing yet to indicate she writes or draws or paints. Maybe she does, though?)



(I couldn’t tell from your picture how tall you are, but I could see you’re not red headed; and you don’t have any gray streaks as she does now (but didn’t at the time of her husband’s death).)

———

Anyway;
Rita Hayworth, huh? She’s a bit too old-school for me to have thought of her; I’m only 68 y/o!
But maybe I’ll see some of her movies now. Quarantine is a great opportunity to catch up on her oeuvre.

....

Since Captain Locke was a governess for Edmond before they married, I’d guess she has stepchildren?
Will I find out if I keep reading?

You're sweet.

As far as her internal character... I've always thought of Ailbhe Locke as the personification of unresolved grief. She has some trauma in her life, and I like to think it's the kind of helpless trauma that is synonymous with being a woman in the 19th century; the shock of sudden widowhood is a real universal pain, and, historically, it's an event that tends to spawn some nasty mean female pirates (look at Ching Shih and Jeanne de Clisson, if you want some badass further reading). And while she's not a terribly empathetic, or emotionally available person, her reactions to pain are predictable: the bloody coat, for instance, I borrowed from Jackie Kennedy; when JFK was shot, she refused to remove her bloody Chanel suit until the next president was sworn in. I find that to be very expressive.

As far as back story, I have an eventual prequel planned that really focuses on Ed being the central character. A very 'The Prestige' esque mad scientist's tale. At this rate, I'll be retired by the time I get to it. :) There is very much a family for them, I'll say that much, and these people are involved in 'Fury of the Dawn'.

Also I'm drunk. That was a book.

Ailbhe is pronounced Alva and is Old Irish for “white” — right?

@Aviatrix:
I never heard of Jeanne de Clisson before!
Charles de Blois (and King Philip VI) seeem to have ignored Machiavelli’s advice on three counts:
1. Only execute people you can prove something against.
2. If you do have to kill someone it doesn’t hurt you to be polite about it.
3. If you have to kill someone, for goodness’ sake leave their heirs and their women alone. No-one can protect you against someone who doesn’t mind dying as long as he gets to kill you.

I’d heard of Ching Shih before, though I had forgotten her name.
(Was she also the basis for the Dragon Lady in Terry and the Pirates?)
Her code, including requiring Pirate husbands to be faithful to their pirate wives, and prohibiting crimes against civilian villagers who helped the Pirates, was pretty famous; that’s how I recognized her.

Thanks for adding some excitement to my Saturday!

@Aviatrix:
I tried to look up Rita Hayworth movies, but the only one that came up that actually had Rita Hayworth in it doesn’t really;
it’s a docudrama about her that’s rated only 3 stars.
So I decided to watch Ava instead.
It’s about a woman and her mother and sister, all of whom are seriously red-haired.
That’s the closest they come to being Rita Hayworth.
OTOH Ava is probably kinda like Ailbhe. She’s deadly and her name is kinda similar.

I'm trying really, really hard to find a new job. Taking a slight break from illustrating to catch up on some writing, too. How's life on your end? How's your health?

Good luck with the job hunt!
Also, good luck with the writing!

Relevant to “How am I?”
It’s 9:41am here at the moment.
My alarm went off at 8:00am.
I’m finding it more difficult than usual to cheer myself up enough to actually start my day.
As a compromise between
  • getting up and getting moving, on the one hand
    versus
  • rolling over and seeking renewed oblivion, on the other hand:

    I am spending about 100 minutes on-line on my various social media.

    Thanks for asking!

    Idk wtf is going on but I DEFINITELY AM NOT OK WITH SEXUAL HARASSMENT/ABUSE

    Ya, I'm not either problem is some people keep assuming with surety that I was some random accounts I'm not. There's a whole lot of drama about it and we're all pretty tired and the community is pretty shattered. I could try to dispute some specific claims about why people think it was me if you want but I'd rather leave it be and hope you can give the benefit of the doubt. Also it wasn't even my penis from the screenshots I saw of it and I could prove THAT, but like... seems like a bad idea for obvious reasons.

    Ok thank you for giving a bit of context. I won't pry for now. Going into something so sensitive without knowledge of the events seems foolish.

    This sounds like some troll hacked Riven’s and/or Grey Echelon’s account(s) on Discord and posted shit pretending to be from Riven and/or Grey Echelon.
    Aviatrix assures me that what she posted in this thread is actually from her and accurately describes what she thought (thinks?) happened based on her experience and observation.

    Based on my own experience with Aviatrix and Grey Echelon and Riven:

  • Aviatrix wouldn’t make this shit up.
  • Riven wouldn’t act like this.
  • Grey Echelon wouldn’t act like this either.

    I don’t have any idea what could be happening consistent with the above.
    I’m not sure when if ever I’ll be emotionally ready to find out; “some time after my own (lesser) life-stresses have abated somewhat”, is my guess.

    I regret this thread is now no longer solely about Aviatrix’s writing and art.

    I have started a new thread.

    I did some pretty fucked up stuff last month that I'm owning up to on the site sometime tonight. I'll try to explain things from my perspective a bit. I don't know what she told you exactly but most of it is probably true.

    Grey echelon also did some pretty fucked up stuff last month -- this was conjecture and I sided with him instead, but then recently I found actual evidence. I shared this with a couple people, and it has since become public.

    I do have other issues myself personally with the other part of the community, but in light of the above I'm going to look past them and make the first steps here.

    You had your own reasons and other people convinced you like you said and like you told me. I don't see that as necessarily "siding" with me if you were doing what you did with your own reasons. I assume this is what you mean, but it is weird wording.
