Updating a wee bit early this week since I'll be out all day Sunday.
Thanks to all who participated in the Ask Big Gold and Sybel segment! Although I can't include all the great questions you all had I appreciate everyone who took part.
I didn't know how I'd handle these two doing a Q&A given their "quirks" but I think it came out pretty fun.

Next Sunday will be the chapter six title page and end of the winter hiatus, thanks for your patience!

Thanks goes out to Rachel T. who donated to the comic this week, cheers!

Some typos abound. "Writting" on page 15, "Surpise" on page 17.

Also, "amoung" in the fourth last page
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:04 PM edit delete reply
Thanks, updated.

"Flare" on page seven should be "flair" also.

That was awesome! And of course quite educational. Thank you Big Gold and Sybel for taking time out of Big Gold's busy schedule!

Also, thank you, Notos!

Hello! Fancy meeting you here. :D

Ha Ha Thanks for giving me the honor of first answer! That's pretty cool dude.
I actually got the idea for that question from an old female comic character I remember who had a bionic voice box. I think it was a DC comic character.
I'd sure love to have a synth voice box and be able to hit any note perfectly and effortlessly. That would rock.

Congrats... Surprised mine got picked, even more so it was #2.
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:04 PM edit delete reply
I think I know the character you're talking about, or, a similar one from Wildstorm comics.

I love the Q&A segments; they're so informative! But there's one thing I love about them more than anything else

It means the wait is almost over! :DDDDD
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:05 PM edit delete reply
Yep, not long now, thanks for the patience.

Thanks for all those answers! But I must say I had most fun with The Hyperion Eye! Although I'D never wear pants like these, I like the look ... and Big G's rump. And ... "I gave birth to my future self!" ??? GREAT! :D
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:05 PM edit delete reply
The tabloid style was kind of a last minute decision, seemed fun.
Hours Left 11th Jan 2015, 11:59 AM edit delete reply
Great Q & A. Gold has a nice butt.

A few typos. The aforementioned "writting" and "surpise". Also there should be a comma after Polish.

I can't wait for the next chapter. :)
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:06 PM edit delete reply
Yep someone beat ya to them, thanks.
ChristinaSJ 11th Jan 2015, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
Awesome :) Thanks! Was great fun to read.
MoonByte 11th Jan 2015, 1:22 PM edit delete reply
As interesting and/or amusing the answers were, what really made me laugh loud was that last page with the fan. It just looks so hilariously weird with how both he and Sybel are sitting :'D
Can't wait for next week!
justkeepondriving 11th Jan 2015, 1:52 PM edit delete reply
Interesting Q's and A's. Pity there wasn't room for more. Thanks Notos! Looking forward to the title page!
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:07 PM edit delete reply
Yeah there were a lot of good questions I'd like to have included, but I only have 3 nights to put it all together so gotta cut it down sadly.
Draginbeard 11th Jan 2015, 1:55 PM edit delete reply
LOL this was a great, and EXTREMELY humble interview!

I thinks its my favorite Q&A so far!
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:08 PM edit delete reply
I had fun with it, originally thought it wouldn't be very interesting visually since BG doesn't ever move, and Sybel doesn't speak, but I like the end result.
dougwarner59 11th Jan 2015, 2:37 PM edit delete reply
looks like someone likes themselves a lot...and I'm not talking about myself this time.
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:08 PM edit delete reply
It's fun writing characters that are full of themselves, I've got a few in this story.
Chantaru 11th Jan 2015, 3:35 PM edit delete reply
Very educational! Thank you.
NobodyImportant11 11th Jan 2015, 4:20 PM edit delete reply
So Sybel does all the gesturing for BG and BG does all the talking for Sybel? That's an interesting relationship.
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:09 PM edit delete reply
It was fun making the 'eccentric' pop star for this world.
Finz_ 11th Jan 2015, 4:41 PM edit delete reply
When I saw the voting I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this Q&A as much but it was definitely one of the more amusing and informative ones. And thanks for entertaining my question Notos, it was just as I imagined it. But no one could have depicted that rump but you ^^
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:12 PM edit delete reply
And it was an honor to depict the iconic look.
Like Madonna's cones or Bowies lightning bolt.

Polish Japanese! XD Not sure if that's a typo or not; but still sounds super interesting either way!

Okay, I don't know what I expected when these two won, but that was totally awesome!

Also, leather chaps. Woo!
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:16 PM edit delete reply
Yeah wasn't sure how I was going to handle it, they are an odd bunch, but it was fun.

"Wait for Chapter 7"

Sybyl confirmed as Buying Time's version of Deadpool.
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:17 PM edit delete reply
Her schedule management is so good it breaks the fourth wall. That's why she makes the big bucks.
Harry Bentley 11th Jan 2015, 7:20 PM edit delete reply
Always kind of you to service your fans Case ;)
Another fun Q&A ^^
Can't wait for the next chapter :D
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:18 PM edit delete reply
Cheers, always kind of the fans to take part in these.

Sybel speaks Polish? That's so amazing, I feel aprreciated as an audience :D

Sybel, could you answer?
Jak się dzisiaj masz? :D
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:29 PM edit delete reply
Not natively, but as good as an online translator might handle it. So;
Dobre, dziękuję.
YangYueLan 11th Jan 2015, 9:50 PM edit delete reply
Just a quick note, Sybel's cuffs in the last page/panel are white and they were yellow/glowing in all the others. See you next week!
Notos 11th Jan 2015, 10:18 PM edit delete reply
Ah good catch, thanks.
natranr 12th Jan 2015, 6:20 AM edit delete reply
I can't believe you actually picked my comment! I'm ecstatic. Now to wait for Chapter 7 ;3.

P.S. How do I get an avatar on here?
natranr 12th Jan 2015, 6:25 AM edit delete reply
Nevermind, I figured out how to register and all.
Pete 12th Jan 2015, 11:25 AM edit delete reply
Great Q&A - some fascinating background info.
A few more typos for you: page 5 "in charage", page 9 "Sybal", page 16 "you" instead of "your".

Thanks for the great read; I'm always looking forward to the next chapter.
sirBloble 12th Jan 2015, 1:59 PM edit delete reply
You do a really awesome job writing these two. Normally self-absorbed characters end up being annoying, but they're actually really adorable.

Also, ass-less chaps. Arguably better than him just getting naked.
Notos 13th Jan 2015, 3:08 AM edit delete reply
Glad. Maybe they are so self-absorbed they pass into the realm of ridiculous rather than annoying, that's the hope at least.
Glad you dig to chaps too.

(my question was answered! ermahgawd!)

Looking forward to next week!

Thanks for taking part!

Hey Notos, great job as always when doing your comic. I just got finished rereading BT like the billionth time and I have a question that the comic doesn't seem to have stated in anyway. How long has Galvin and Vinnie been dating? The comic doesn't say so do you mind telling me/us please. PS keep up the great work!
Notos 14th Jan 2015, 4:24 AM edit delete reply
hey Armor Bear, thanks!
As for your question it's tough to put an exact timeline on it, a lot of people have asked the same question. I try to space each of Galvin and Vinnie's dates or general 'events' 1-2 weeks apart. They went on 3 or 4 dates before being 'official' and since then there have been another 4 or 5. There is some time between Chapter 4 and 5 before they venture into the sub levels. I'd wager they've been dating for 3 months or so.

even if I became quite quiet about this comic I enjoy it each week, also the hiatus packages and HOLY I anticipated this Asks section and xD TOTALLY loved it again :D
ekihane 16th Jan 2015, 6:44 AM edit delete reply
Absolutely loving this comic, both for the refreshing presentation and the intriguing content!

Noticed a small typo in Sybel's response to the free time question: "Reccently" should only have one "c" (recently)!
Notos 17th Jan 2015, 1:36 AM edit delete reply
Thanks ekihane glad you're digging it.
angua 16th Jan 2015, 10:23 PM edit delete reply

Yep almost back into the swing of things.

I loved this! It basically answered my question about what Big Gold thinks of the system: that it's oppressive and stifling except to the elites. I don't know if that was intentional, but even if it wasn't, thanks for working that in!

I've also went from feeling squarely neutral about Sybel to being pretty damn impressed by her. She's shown a lot more of herself in that interview—not an easy feat, Big Gold could make Boy George look like a shrinking violet!—and I'm definitely going to see her very differently in future chapters. :)

I don't want to say "You've hit GOLD with these characters!" because puns. Yet, here I am...
