When I first came to this site, I was very much a lurker. My brothers and I had gotten into BIONICLE from its beginning in 2001, and we eventually stumbled on this site in the early, awkward days of the World Wide Web. It was here that I saw the creative output of the fandom – sprite comics, artwork, MOCs, comedies, epics, and much more.
Fourteen years ago, I became a part of that creative output with the premiere of Akano's Comics.
It's been six years since I made a comic (sorry, everyone, grad school happened; I do want to make more, though!), but my creative outputs didn't stop. I made set reviews and Equation of the Day (which I'm still working on, I promise!).
Thank you, everyone, for being my first audience. Now that I'm a professor, I'll have many, many more, but you were the first to truly see the crazy inner workings of my mind. Thanks for sticking with me, and thanks for helping me improve. You guys helped someone who stumbled to craft paragraphs become an author. You helped someone who enjoyed comedy but couldn't quite formulate a joke become a half-decent comedian.
Here's to more creative output.
