This is page 300! To celebrate it, I'm posting an extra story about Jean-Marie and Maria's family, where do those neurotic bad guys come from exactly?
I got behind schedule making it so I'm posting now even though I'm not finished uploading it. It shouldn't take too long!

At the same time, I happened to draw filler for Spitfire at Sandbox Drama, she linked to this comic, so I'm waving back. HI SPIT!!! *waves*

There. I'm all caught up. I get a strong sense you are drawing on the Canadian Aboriginal experiences, misinterpretations due to cultural reasons etc... I like how you show care and understanding of completely different cultures like when an insult to a human may mean an absolute compliment to an Orc. This is well though out, and I think that I've only scratched the surface.

I'm honored to know my writing was worthy of that much reflexion!

The inspiration for orcs is mixed (and for the specific culture, mostly made up) but on the political situation, yes I did borrow from Aboriginals, I thought not literally for the most part, but close enough, apparently, for people in Australia and the Americas to recognise it too. (The actual use of the word "reservation" might have made it a little unsubtle alright!)
The fantasy races allow to explore interactions between peoples more different than real life ones, and it's an interesting mental exercice from the author's perspective. How people as different as trolls and fairies coexist in the same society, as well as how different and not always compatible cultures happen in fairly little space.
