After several months of delays, Aether Torrent has updated with a new episode!
Episode 29, “The Sisters and the City,” introduces the celebrity Phoenix Sisters, guest characters whom I’ve had off-stage for half a decade or so. Tori and company are ordered to chaperone the Sisters, but more dangerous eyes than theirs are watching the potentially explosive monster siblings.
Aether Torrent is a party-based adventure about four friends who, despite occasional personality clashes, rely on each other for companionship, their respective goals, and defense against mutual enemies — which they have an unfortunate tendency to collect.
Teaser “clip” for the new episode below the cut. Forgive the loss of proper formatting in the copy/paste.
(And for context, “Grays” is simply shorthand for numerous gray-suited Secret-Service-analogue agents.)

“'Two Birds with fair wings, knit with bonds of friendship, in the same sheltering tree have found a refuge.' Okay, now you.”
"… The big line with the handlebars is a T, right?"

Avani and Cirrus and literacy, as drawn by the amazing Pickles who draws Distillum. Felt like a steal for the price.

Heh, you beat me to posting it! I’m glad you like it :D

Oh, definitely, I couldn’t wait for a reblog. Great stuff.
Every image of any of my characters helps balance the abundance of words I’ve written about them. At a standard picture-to-word ratio of 1:1000, that leaves… about 1400 more drawings. Every one counts! So thanks for this one.

Ronald Reagan pretty much ruined everything for millennials.

fuckin’ ronnie

I try and bring up how he ruined free in state tuition in the name of hippie bashing when he was California’s governor often, but don’t exactly have the biggest platform.

"Worst of all, these students’ sense of the future is constrained by planning for and then paying down their student loans, often for decades. Economists are waking up to the fact that when young Americans enter the workforce burdened with over a trillion dollars in cumulative debt, they become risk averse, unwilling to move, less able to make major purchases, and slower to become homeowners. Not coincidentally, they don’t feel safe enough to register any major protests against the society that’s done this to them.”

Damn.

How Reagan and a general fear of youth and change produced the modern debt-prisoner class.

And this is the man deified by tribal conservatives.

May we forever remember the Reagan Memorial Debt, and of course Reagan’s Disease.

So is September 24th’s combination the equivalent of Moon Moon?
