Whew, just 1 more page and we'll be at the end of chapter 6. At which point I'll be doing the usual hiatus song and dance to rebuild buffer and catch up. More details on that next Sunday. Thanks for reading!

Big thanks to Barbara and Leon who donated to the comic this week, appreciate your support guys!

This...better not be the start of Fridge's downfall.

This was hard!
Feel bad for both of them.

oh noooo! :-( I hope they find a middle ground. They need each other to make this work! Great page :-)

I hate stress!
I hate cortisol!!

I hate situation like this :(

On the other note, I wonder if Fridge can kiss at all? There's no lips, no tongue? *curious*
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:16 PM edit delete reply
No lips, but sensation receptors so he can feel *being* kissed. He does have a tongue also, check out the Ask Fridge supplement for more Full-Synth anatomy related questions.

Oh my ... didn't see THAT coming. But I must say, I know stuff like that. And I know that the lack of proper conversation can ruin everything.
Makes me kinda sad.

Oh, one thing I have to ask: When are we gonna see Papa O. with THIS outfit? http://www.furaffinity.net/view/11775545/ :D
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:17 PM edit delete reply
Ha, not sure. Maybe I'll work it in a some point before the story wrap, we'll see, depends on how much more screen time Papa gets before we're done.

I like Sybel's outfit :)
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:17 PM edit delete reply
Was kind of fun to draw her outside of her "work uniform".

Oh, no! No, no, no! :'(

*sigh* I know they'll get past this. It was a tough discussion that needed to happen. You can't operate effectively as a team when one person is making all the decisions and steamrolling anyone else. Which I don't think Fridge ever set out to do—this is as much Vinnie's fault as it is Fridge's—but if they were going to continue to work together, they had to address their creative differences.

…And now I really want to peek inside your head to see how soon they're going to reconcile, because the tension is going to be killing me over the upcoming hiatus!!! :P
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
Yeah I wanted to make this scuffle seem to have reasonable points from both sides.
Hopefully the hiatus won't be too rough, I always like to end on some sort of cliffhanger, keeps ya'll coming back.
Danny Zephronic 26th Apr 2015, 12:11 PM edit delete reply
Man... Sybil has one sharp tongue
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:19 PM edit delete reply
She's quite the word smith indeed.
Invisiblebear 26th Apr 2015, 12:14 PM edit delete reply
Aww don't fight you too.
Grall 26th Apr 2015, 12:25 PM edit delete reply
Hmm, this sounds familiar. I had a similar conversation with a music partner many years ago. In the end, there were a lot of hurt feelings that never got resolved. >_>

Great update!
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:22 PM edit delete reply
Thanks glad you liked it! Dang, that sounds rough, sorry everything didn't get ironed out! I have zero experience in that sort of field, so interesting to hear this sort of disagreement isn't uncommon in that industry.
Liska 26th Apr 2015, 12:50 PM edit delete reply
Aw man, no happy campers on either side! It's easy to burn out, though, if you take on too much too fast, so I understand where Vinnie is coming from. and I applaud him for getting his feelings out there. Sometimes you just have to walk away, when the one thing that brings joy doesn't do it anymore. Fame is not the end-game (or rarely is it!).

Hopefully they can sit down and work it out.
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 2:27 PM edit delete reply
Yes, super easy to burn out when someone starts to be more of a job than a hobby/love. Gotta keep a balance!
Liska 26th Apr 2015, 2:56 PM edit delete reply
and that's the hardest part. I'm a self employed photographer, and I'm wake up, worried, every day that I'm going to burn out and loose my passion ... i'm lucky that 3 years into it as a business, I haven't lost a thing. Still worry though! If there was someone else other than me involved in the business, though, I probably would have already walked away already - there's something about loosing control and being forced into a timeline when we're not ready. hmmm.
Jina 26th Apr 2015, 7:26 PM edit delete reply
Personally i would much rather them not be a couple it would seem like hes only dating her to get to the top which i don't support but then again him and vin were great before they got scouted so i guess its ok. By the way i have a question what exactly is "buffering" and why does it take too long?
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 10:40 PM edit delete reply
Buffering means building up a backlog of completed pages so I can release them on a consistent schedule for a stretch of time. For example, I am currently totally out of completed pages, so instead of reliably having a new page every Sunday it would just be "whenever it's done".
It takes long because I draw this comic outside of a fulltime job as an animator.
Gregory in Seattle 26th Apr 2015, 8:19 PM edit delete reply
Reins, like what you use to control a horse. Unless Vinnie is accusing Fridge of taking control like a king.

Awww... Miscommunications between friends suck.

Obviously Fridge is a go-getter and business-minded and Vinnie needs to feel his way around, as well stew upon his thoughts some.

I hope the work this out. I doubt Galena will allow this to stand long.

Great page Notos!
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 10:42 PM edit delete reply
Galena is usually good at getting her boys in order.
jodie 26th Apr 2015, 9:59 PM edit delete reply
finally some character development
Notos 26th Apr 2015, 10:41 PM edit delete reply
I know right, finally.

A Barenaked Ladies song comes to mind "You can be my Yoko Ono"
Notos 27th Apr 2015, 12:46 PM edit delete reply
Ha I was wondering if someone was going to make a Yoko Ono comparison.

I have to wonder... Do YOU know what Sybil said? Or is it a secret just for Fridge?
Notos 27th Apr 2015, 12:48 PM edit delete reply
To be completely honest she doesn't say anything important to the story, it's more of just a bit of a gag to cap off a bit of a downer of a page, and play up her usual whispering quirk.
jaimectio 27th Apr 2015, 1:26 PM edit delete reply
Would Fridge need a/c? Or was that for Sybil's sake?
Notos 28th Apr 2015, 12:29 PM edit delete reply
I suppose it would be more for his visitors sake. I originally wanted to show AC units in all of the low level apartments and destinations to drive the idea of it being more of a sweatbox the lower you go, but kind of forgot to run with it.
Draginbeard 28th Apr 2015, 10:41 PM edit delete reply
I feel ya Vinnie. Money or the promise of it can really put on the pressure.

Really nice job with the dialog!

Sybil is adorable, I have to say it.
Notos 30th Apr 2015, 12:20 PM edit delete reply
Glad you dig her, she's a fun character to work with, despite not having any dialogue.
justkeepondriving 29th Apr 2015, 7:49 PM edit delete reply
It was a discussion waiting to happen, but it certainly could've ended better! It's hard not to clash with someone when you're opposed to what the other is saying. I hope they make up soon!

Thanks for the update Notos, no idea what you've got in store for us on the last page of the chapter :O

Looking forward to the upcoming Q&A though :)
Notos 30th Apr 2015, 12:21 PM edit delete reply
Thanks! Not sure what I'll do for the Q&A this time, I'll likely put it up to vote again.
justkeepondriving 3rd May 2015, 9:34 PM edit delete reply
Yea, I like having it voted on, it's kind of fun
josbell975 30th Apr 2015, 1:14 PM edit delete reply
I just typed forever some deep thoughts then my fat ass hand hit a wrong key and selected all and the next key WIPED OUT everything I wrote and now I'm to pissed to re-type it -_-

Stupid fat hand...but all the boys love it
Notos 1st May 2015, 3:08 AM edit delete reply
Leave it to stupid fat hands to destroy something deep and well thought-out.
Appreciate the comment nonetheless!
josbell975 30th Apr 2015, 1:18 PM edit delete reply
Vin stressed about credits and DPL (I couldn't leave it as DP, heh) and feels Fridge is cheating.

Fridge is dating Sybil b/c she's hot from day one. No agenda, but Sybil thinks they're good enough for another deal.

blah blah, deep thoughts, in a nut shell, drops mic and walks off.
crowwinters 2nd May 2015, 5:12 AM edit delete reply
Because I side with Fridge almost entirely on this, I was arguing with Vinnie throughout the panel in my head. I felt that keyboard warrior push to argue at Vinnie. And then I realized they were /characters/ and damn you for having such good writing.
Notos 2nd May 2015, 1:50 PM edit delete reply
I'm kind of glad at that, was hoping to create a situation where people could see both sides, or, not lean toward the MCs side just because he's the MC.
Marron4Gateau 6th May 2015, 6:25 AM edit delete reply
Um... if they stepped out of the apartment, wasn't that conversation charged to their personal accounts? I'm surprised their hand helds didn't chime @ them that they had left the apartment and their conversation was NOT covered by BIG GOLD PRODUCTIONS, etc...
