You're awesome.
this looks helpful, I'll have to try it.
I watch you mostly in hopes of young wizards stuff at some point but your art is really good in general!

Well, I'm not sure if I have anything left to say about YW as the series stands right now. If I eventually do again, though, it will probably end up here.
well in any case, I really do like all your work, I didn't follow just for yw stuff, so yup~

as the series stands now? /confused
speaking of which, have you read wizard of mars, and if you did what did you think of it?
..I- I never have anyone to discuss the series with so like. sorry. OTL
I did! I didn't like it much, it kind of bothered me with regards to some gender and romance tropes of which I'm not very fond. I mean, I understand that it's an homage to older science fiction, but therein, I think, is my issue with it--I actually actively avoid reading anything from the literary epoch from which most of AWOM's allusions are being drawn because I am always acutely aware of how it's being directed at an audience of a different gender and race from myself.

If you're looking for a place to talk about YW, though, there's a group on deviantart and a community on livejournal and, of course, the official forums themselves.
that's true, I suppose- I thought all the references to other stories were interesting, but to be honest I didn't have too much of an opinion on them, as I don't really read science fiction much and so I wasn't really familiar with the stories being referenced.
the things that I really disliked though, were that for one I thought she was going to end the series with wizards at war- it was my favorite of the series, but I honestly didn't expect any more books after that. I mean, they saved the entire universe, so I wasn't really sure what could top that. but then another book comes out, but of course I bought it anyway. but then you discover that roshaun isn't really dead which kind of put me off because I do love roshaun, but things where a character is supposedly dead but suddenly everyone finds out they're really alive! kind of irritate me.
and then there was the whole nita/kit thing which is just me not approving of that pairing because the reason I liked their relationship as partners was because it was, you know, one of the few series where a boy and girl are actually friends with no romance involved. but that's just my personal opinion, I'm quite biased on the subject. I did see it coming, though, so it's not like it surprised me very much.
also, this might be just me but I dislike how the plots are getting so much more complicated and difficult to follow as time goes on- not that I have anything against intricate plots, but it just comes off as trying to top the previous books somehow. this is probably just my opinion, I'm ridiculously picky sometimes.
I am starting to like the book more after rereading it a few times, though. it's not my favorite of the series, but it wasn't my least favorite either. /long ramble

ah, I'm always scared to join groups, they're kind of intimidating to me- but I'll take a look at those anyway, thank you!
Give it a try! It can be intimidating, yes, but it's often a good way to find like-minded individuals.
the groups do look interesting, I just get very intimidated by people I don't know, especially entire groups of them. but it would be nice to have someplace to dork around all day without getting weird glances, so I'll probably think about joining~
