Also check out the Christmas story contest entries here, they're all delightful: https://sites.google.com/site/cosecretsantastories/home
Never thought of putting one together. I'm probably missing a drawing or 2 as well due to a few computer crashes over the last few years. Why I have a flash drive at the ready at all times. Just in case.
It's getting late for North American anons, and a new work week approaches. Why aren't you preparing for a comfy bedtime, /co/mrade?
Since I screwed it up and lost the original, how about Mimi and Sora from Digimon Adventures Tri in Christmas hats for The Happy Hulk? I know it's more /a/ than /co/ but dangit someone should draw it.
I'll see what I can find. If anything I can drop a few here that I think I haven't posted in a while. Maybe post a screenshot of what you have or something.
I prefer drawing at night. Which I might do soon.
Battle Pop is many things but subtle is not one of them.
Merry Xmas Boobies, it's that time again time for another Riddler Xmas Prize Puzzle Penis Pentration Extravaganza (ignore those capital letters kids, seriously those were a joke). Speaking of time what do you think of my new portrait it's got quite a festive name. Fitting don't you think?

How goes the puzzle Batboobs?
Wanted to post my list in this thread but couldn't find any other christmas-related pictures on my computer
I hear good things but I have no idea what its about.
I completely forgot this was out, consensus? good or bad?
What a mad cunt. It's been good today, I got myself a blue heaven milkshake while I spam some Helldivers with a friend.
Ended up adding Battle Pope to my wishlist cause of the story time. Dat Virgin Mary and dat Succubus.
Cheers mate. Now, a story about the world's greatest detective!
Anyway, season's greetings from across the pond
It's almost six in the morning here in the UK, and because of my recent unemployment, my biological clock is all fucked up, so I might as well do some storytiming.
I present to you a flowchart depicting how british people see the royal family:
Hmm, I would've thought blue heaven was just a universal flavour name, I thought it was blueberry but google tells me its a Raspberry/Vanilla flavour. And Helldivers is like a Starship Troopers top down shooter from the guys who made Magicka. Very fun.
Although I might be slightly biased, seeing as how I'm just another slav subhuman stealing jobs from honest, hardworking Pakis.
>blue heaven milkshake
This sounds delicious. Haven't has a shake in a long time, since 5 Napkin Burger closed by work.
There are always future threads with future storytimes.
How far across the pond?
MTM is weird as shit, like a lot of the Adult Swim stuff. The episodes are hit or miss, case of the week dependent, but the voice acting is wonderful. Norm Macdonald is a talking pigeon.
Right next to it, actually, depending on how you see it. Bit south of Liverpool.
I'm not even sure a place to get a milkshake around here besides like Mickey D's. Is that Helldivers game a steam game, or do you guys play on console? A friend and I used to play Magicka quite a bit on steam.
>I have not see one fucking bay yet
I'll figure out a "Baywatch" joke eventually.
So are there any not exactly christmas stories anyone wants storytimed? Like not completely unrelated, maybe just "wintery"?
Anyway, the weather here is not Christmassy at all. A bit chilly, maybe, but that's all.
So anyway, my wishlist is 2VJQYBU5P3M1A (co.uk). I've only recently started branching out from being a Marvelfag, so any recommendations are welcome.
I've got a couple of Dredd ssstories that are tangentially Chrissstmasss-related jussst by virtue of taking place around that time, sssso I figure as long as the theme is there, it'd be fine.
Here'sss a little short ssstory (aren't most in Dredd?).
Oh shit, sssorry. I'll be done quick.
inb4 Dredd arresssts the /entire/ Block.
I hear Barney as having the Heart of Gold's really obnoxiousss, high-pitched voice from the BBC Hitchhiker'sss Guide mini-ssseriesss.
>captcha: choose all the pictures with grass
>one of them's straight up a grave
Hey fuck you too, buddy.
Thisss is sssuch a fucked up ssstory and ending. Really warmsss the heart.
Here'sss my lissst if anyone wantsss to do a little Barney-ing of their own: 1IT1G4KXCJJGN
So... no-one objecting?
It's winter all year round in the Yukon!
Getting late for me so I will catch all you guys later.
Well, there is a jolly fat guy riding reindeer-sleigh later on...
Goddamn, Captcha's becoming more of a cunt with every post
See, it IS Christmas-related after all!
Buck McDuck, the original spaghetti spiller
Captcha's still a cunt, but a promise is a promise.
is there anyone even here still by the way?
I'm all about blu rays. everybody I know thinks I'm weird for insisting on using them over netflix or whatever, but damnit when perfection is available, why would you ever settle for "good enough"?
Man, can I just like... not work and curl up under a blanket and read all the storytimes? Totally not feeling the need to work today. Or this week I imagine.
As an aside, does anybody else who watches Riddler do his stuff this time of year just sit back in awe and think to themselves that what he creates is some sort of vodoo cyber magic?
I'm leaving to go home from college on the 18th, would it be better to put my apartment address or my home address? On one hand I don't wanna wait until I'm home to see it, but I also don't want it stuck in the post office until February.
Computers are black magic. My roommate does a lot of sys admin stuff, and I just stare at his screens like
>the fuck is this
>the fuck is that
>the fuck is everything
Gooooood Morning Secret Santa Threeeeead!
How we all doing today?
Good morning /co/mrades! Does anyone still do 4craft? I was Darkseid13/the guy with the DNA Star Lord costume.
Hope everyone's holidays are going well, is anyone streaming anything today?
Hey, thanks for reminding me to check if there's another volume of Fantagraphic's Don Rosa Library announced. And there is, second part of Life and Times. Ballin'
And a new Carl Barks, too.
I'll happily take a dvd over a blu if it's cheap enough. Why I get so much from the salvation army. Plus some movies just don't need to be in hd.
Two people called out sick today and we're already severely understaffed. So I'm stuck going in no matter what.
I'm gonna have to start getting these soon.
And so another week starts.
My move went well this weekend, for anyone that cares. Could've have asked for better weather really; 40s and sunny in December? In Minnesota? Ridiculous.
Now I just have to wait to get internet set up there.
This thread needs music
Early Christmas gift in! Thanks so much, man!
Merry Christmas ya'll!
yeah, it's been stupid mild here too.
Hey Tajador, I just wanted to say thanks for choosing my story and that all the others were pretty great too. Good luck to all the other anons doing your next contest and whatever you got me, I look forward to it.
Hahahah most of this stuff isn't even that magic. I watched an awesome tech talk about a month ago in prep for this where the guy was doing things like hiding images in programs and then shifting a bit would reveal them, but shift another bit and you have a zip file. That was like black magic.
So it seems to me that I might have made the puzzle a bit to hard for some for the next hour, I'll be hovering to answer any questions you might have. I won't be giving out direct answers if I can avoid it, but plenty of helpful hints may be had.
I'm in one of the snowiest cities in the northeast and it's snowed once, maybe twice. I know when the roads are a sheet of ice I'm gonna regret bitching about it, but seriously, where's the snow?
I want winter, not wishy washy I'm sorta hot sorta child shit were getting. Near 60 in December? Fuck.
Still, no snow is a good thing. This time 2 years ago I had fallen on ice and fucked up my shoulder. Still hurts a lot today.
I went to participate last year but I work at a cloud security company, so I deal with virus algorithms, making sure detection is in place on scanning services, etc. "Polymorphic MD5 hash sum" is the current new craze. I realised that I was basically taking my work home and after 10 1/2 hour days, my brain was too fried to give it a decent shot. Kudos to you though mate, I enjoy reading the results.
Yeah your work sounded really interesting, sorry to hear about the shit going down at your company. If it's any conciliation I'm sure you could pick up a spot in any other big tech company. IoT is blowing up right now. Stupid money in that.
I wish - I've got to go into hospital in the next few days for a transfusion. Got a severe health thing so they're getting me in and pumping me full of drugs. If the kidneys hold out under it, I'll be home in time with xmas. If not, I'll be in for a while. Either way if shit goes bad, I go in for major surgery in my redundentness and get a bag on the hip. Not an ideal situation. It's why I'm pursuing being an author in my spare time. I would rather do that then listen to people bitch about them opening cryptolocker/dridex emails.
Whats up guys? Hope everyone is doing well.
Not really Christmas related, but I did these a couple years ago and people seemed to enjoy them. And 1E3AR0WCCFIRG can be taken off the unloved list
hope it gets better man
The way I see it, there's people out there that have it a lot worse than me. It sucks but it could be so much worse so I'm grateful for that.
Thanks bud, that's very kind of you
You put a massive smile on my face and I'm not ashamed to say, a little misty eyed. If you enjoy it, let me know and I'll send you a link to the others for free.
If you don't enjoy it, no refunds :D
and that's the end. I have more I can do later if people are interested.
There's a preview up on amazon so you can check it out. I write primarily YA as that's where the money is at (or will be when I get an agent). I'm pitching but it can take months for them to get back to you.
They're horrible things alright. But it's not an amputation or anything and people live with them. Just not a fun thought, you know?
I'm gonna make a deal with you. If I get something picked up and published in your country and I have to go over for a media thing, I'll drop by and we'll go out for a drink and shit and I'll pay. Totally serious. In fact I think if it happens, I'll want to do meet ups with /co/mrades wherever I go. I've been speaking to someone who wrote their first novel here in the UK. I live in the same town as her and it's been picked up, film rights paid for, done national media and tours, and now she's off doing the global tour. She's a housewife in her 40's and about to embark on this crazy tour, been invited to film premieres, the works. I met her getting smokes from a corner shop.
That's incredibly generous of you. I'll absolutely take you up on the offer, and if you're ever swinging by the US and end up in Ohio for some ridiculous reason I'll be happy to head out on the town with you.
Sounds neat as hell. Reminds me of a story I was listening to describing how train travel became the primary US transport when this train owner started making it the height of luxury with the best food and service around. you've just made another sale!
Just got home from a particularly shitty day at work (the pre-Christmas shoppers really are an absolute delight to engage with) to find this waiting for me, so thanks ever so much to the kind anon who got it for me, I really really appreciate getting the chance to finally read this series!
Ohio it is, mate. Oddly enough it's inspired me to do a chunk more writing tonight.
Thanks buddy, you didn't need to do that, but like I said to the other kind anon, if you like it, let me know and I'll put up a link to dropbox where you can download the others (and the sequel) for free.
This has got me thinking. Surely there should be some other anons who put stuff up frequenting these threads. Webcomics, etc.
I've never seen that. If it's as tragically horrible as I've heard, I'm in.
Patebins are updated, we're up to 87 gifted, a 52% gifted rate!
This playing of Star Wars Holiday Special is 15 minuets in but there will be another playing at the same link >>78005890
at 6:00 PM PST
Good pre-afternoon, all! How's everybody doing today? The missus and I got bored last night and looked up pop culture-related ugly Christmas sweater designs. While not usually m thing, we found some pretty excellent designs. The ones based on John Carpenter's The Thing, Evil Dead, and They Live were particularly awesome.
Best wishes, SHEOL.
Book tour or no, I'll buy you a drink should you find yourself in Anchorage over the next four years.
Just got a gift, thanks bud!
I'm still getting some dosh together to get a gift or two sent out, but I'll storytime in the meantime.
I have Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn's "The Last Christmas" cued up for when I have a free night this week...
