While you can, and do, come and go as you please, you figure it's always a good idea to let your staff know where you are. Without your steady hand at the helm, this enterprise would fall to pieces, what with you having slaughtered the previous administration wholesale.

You call up the DEPUTY DESIGNATE, your second-in-command. You tell him you're going out. He asks where. You say hostile takeover, a bit of fun, the usual stuff. He sends his best and asks if there's anything specific you want done in the mean time. You reply that he might as well check up on the COMPUTATIONAL DEVELOPER and make sure he hasn't bungled anything important. His quirky personality provides no end of comical delights, but frankly, he's a tad on the doltish side.

Taken together, this comic is the story of how I finally read Homestuck. I had made two false starts prior, once shortly after the conclusion of Problem Sleuth and then another maybe about a year or so later. Trying to figure out mythmonster2's avatar led me to the MSPA Wiki months before I was inspired to do this; at the time I hadn't realized Jack was a Homestuck character.

The script was constructed backwards based on snippets I'd read on the wiki, starting from "You could not kill the girl" and building a comic around it. Ever the perfectionist, to ensure I got Jack's nuances right, I hunkered down late December and read the entire archives in under a week. Originally the cartoon was to be done in "my" style, but when I began, I suddenly had the stroke of genius to imitate the MSPA format.

I'm very happy with the result.
