i totally agree with "the humans too many"! worst critter invasion ever on the planet, word. ;)

btw, where could i read the german version online? i do speak german fluently (just curious, tho' just for the poem - otherwise i prefer english as much as possible, wayyy better than GER or FRE or whatever) ^^

@portisHeart: you're not the first one to ask for the German version of this page ;) http://sta.sh/011h9vw5m5ey
currently I'm not uploading the German version of this webcomic though.

how come you speak German? OöO
Guest February 28th, 2017, 12:15 pm
@ameoname: i'm swiss. hence, i speak GER+dialect, FRE and ITA (ita not so good, lol). and SPA, cuz my best friend is spanish.

can't access stash due to some cloudfront problem, but i'll leave a comment when i can ^^

@portisHeart @Guest: omg die Schweiz!!!
A friend of mine is probably going to start working at a video game studio in Switzerland soon :3 and thus she can't stop talking about Switzerland these days XDDD now I can brag about my new Swiss online friend hehehe
anche io parlo un pochissimo d'Italiano XD Basta per comprare la pizza XDDD

@ameoname: got the stash! i prefer the EN version, it's more dynamic, the GE seems very... peaceful..^^

the swiss might seem, to many people, as rich, cuddly and conventional. many are actually. not talking about zürich hipsters. personally, i'm a tough bitch, i'm queer, and i live in a dump with a bunch of cats XD. not typical. ^^
guess your friend might go work in zürich, that's the tech town. looks like any metropole in europe, cars everywhere and people running busy all day, fancy lights and parties at night XD. i went there a few months for a comp school.

non c'è bisogno di parlare italiano per ordinare la pizza. hanno invaso tutto il pianeta - anch'io sono una a metà XD

@portisHeart: XD so you need action! You'll get action, don't worry (°v°)

aaaaand yet another cat-person I meet on the net XD there are so many of you here!
I only know that rich people send their money to swiss banks to escape taxes XDDD And you make Kräuterbonbons! But I've never been to Switzerland soooo (>_>)"

My friend is talking about Genf. Is Genf a gib city?
Pizza-World-Domination-High-Five!
portisHeart March 2nd, 2017, 3:32 pm
@ameoname: swiss banks have money, true. but every time i ask them to give me some, they won't, bastards. XD
yeah, kraüterbonbons, chocolate, cheese. vital things, lmao.
genf is in the french part, and for the size of the country, another big metropole. they have international stuff there, like organisations and shit. personally i hate the place, but i guess there's much to see and lotsa hip people too..

cats rule the world! and we are their humble servants.. #bastet4ever

whaddya want, globalization, same food all over the planet. i'm sure there already is sushi-pizza with a side serving of coleslaw, yuck. XD
and swiss chocolate for dessert ;)
ameoname March 5th, 2017, 6:26 am
@portisHeart: oooh I know the bank dilemma XD
and chocolate + cheese are (not at the same time though XD)

I sense you don't like the big city life hehe I mean, when the zombie apocalypse comes the big cities are going down fast. very unsafe places indeed! A farm is the way to go (with big strong fences!)

I used to live with cats but now I'm allergic to them ;( Bastet's revenge for not getting cats on my own after moving XD
portisHeart March 5th, 2017, 8:12 am
@ameoname: actually, i love both big city life AND isolated farm life, big conflict since i can't have both at the same time, lol. but i don't have a choice, no way i can find a place like a cheap old house with huge garden for my meoows in the middle of town - so living in the outskirts (worse, of a very little city) is not a choice atm. i wish. about Genf/Geneva, i just don't like the place per se, dunno why. but zurich is ok, also bern, it's smaller but the old buildings everywhere are rad, they're all so different it's amazing. ofc, compared to less tiny countries like most of the rest of the civilized planet, the size of our "big cities" is dwarfed XD. living out of town has perks - no neighbors, no noise, good air - but many downsides too, every time you need something/someone, especially when you can't drive :/
when the apocalypse comes, i hope there won't be zmobies *freaaaak out*!! but anyways, with mad max terror all over the place and poor survival chances, maybe the best place to be is... 6 feet under the ground XD. don't even bother with the whole fighting shit, just RIP XD.

know what? i was allergic too. for 4 years after deciding i was still going to live with cats i inhaled this powder med crap daily, but then i found some homeopathic stuff, worked within 2 weeks! now i live with over a dozen of them critters, and i breathe freely without meds. ^_^ & ):x = <3
ameoname March 7th, 2017, 5:23 am
@portisHeart: you need $$$ and then you can have your kitten kingdom in the middle of any city!!! get aggressive with those banks XDDD

and don't just die asap when the apocalypse comes!!! take at least a few attackers with you 6 feet under XD

yeah the doctors I asked didn't even bother to try to solve my cat allergy. they gave me some medicine to surpress the symptoms and after I found out how bad it is for me I stopped taking it. I had a mysterious itching all over my body for years and no doctor wanted to search for the cause because "it could be anything" -__- I really stopped believing in most western doctors. they just subscribe chemicals!!! They are good for surgery though ;)
portisHeart March 7th, 2017, 12:18 pm
@ameoname: about your itching.. try searching on the web for food intolerances in general. also, especially about histamine intolerance, ask yourself whether you've also noticed other body symptoms like digestive disorders, headaches, sudden weird highs in blood pressure or heartbeat that you can't explain (like, you just ran upstairs, lol)... try to remember if you had physical reactions after certain foods.
read good articles, in different languages (forums are tricky, sometimes you can read stuff you don't find elsewhere, but often it's too personal.. or crap).
and if you think you do have something of that kind, see an allergologist and ask for a test, tell him what you think you might have.
many people have had this kinda shit for years, didn't know, and doctors telling them it's nothing, it's "psychosomatic", it's something but they have no idea, or even that they are crazy and need meds. :/
i have this shit and honestly, FML...
ameoname March 8th, 2017, 8:22 am
@portisHeart: I already solved the itching problem! or let's say it just gradually disappered after 4 years of torturing me. But you're right, it was probably some food sensitivity. Maybe lactose? I stopped drinking milk for a year now. Although I still eat cheese... dunno.
Thanks for all the advice though! happy to see you don't fall for that "it's nothing just keep taking the sponsor's medicine" doctor BS :D

As a poet, I am going to dissect this! Scalpel, Nurse!!

The first two lines:
"Ravens, hear me, Take care of your kind!"
Possible Meanings: Someone (Garvan, our Raven King) calling to the stand or fight together... The ravens being a "united force" against something... (Why do I think of Power Rangers... :/)

The second two lines:
"A Raven is free Within a calm mind."
Possible Meanings: Thoughts are burdens (cryptic af)... Calm mind is a calm body (metaphor thingy)...

The third two lines:
"To fight is to lose, The humans too many."
Possible Meanings: Are the Ravens losing TO the humans or are they losing TOO many humans? (I do not know... ;-;)

The last two lines:
"With hands full of greed, No hope can they carry."
Possible Meanings: The humans are buried under their greed... The humans have no room for hope with all of their greed...

All eight lines meaning (OPINION):
Garvan (RAVEN KING) wants the ravens to be stronger than the humans [or Garvan wants to be stronger than his human side] so they [he] do not fall into GREED (human sin/emotion). He wants the ravens [or himself] to have a clear mind away from human culture (ENVY and GREED at the same time). To take on this fight (internal fight; one mind, one body), is to lose at the hands of GREED.

Conclusion: In a bass ackward way, GREED is a part of being a human and Garvan does not want to be human with the GREED...

DOES ANY OF THIS MAKE SINCE???? (I got lost somewhere... :/ [SEND HELP!])

@Liv3lafLuv: oho Momma Ratcoon is a poet too! :3
a very through analysis, Momma! Some parts sound about right ;p You'll see what this is about later on *throws a life-saver*
Maybe you can write Haikus with the ravens one day XD
Liv3lafLuv (Guest) March 3rd, 2017, 2:27 pm
@ameoname: I'm more of a free verse than haiku type of poet, but I will except any invitation to write poems. ^^ I have not written any, in a while. College is eating up ALL of my time. ;-;

I'll read poems at MY SON's bonded ceremony. XD
ameoname March 5th, 2017, 6:28 am
@Liv3lafLuv: freestyle G-Rap straight outta (insert your hometown) XD
ooooh what are you studying? What's Momma R. up to?
The Orange Cow March 1st, 2017, 12:14 am
Humans aren't greedy, just capable. Imagine if other species could do what we can.
ameoname March 2nd, 2017, 10:45 am
@The Orange Cow: :D yes, this is going to be the right comic for you to argue about humans! keep your point in mind ;)
featherpencil March 7th, 2017, 12:27 am
