Note: The current story-arc begins at Strip 621
June 29, 2006
Well, I'm all moved in to my new house. I'm beginning to realize that owning a house is a continual battle against... the house. I may as well get a cardboard box and live at Home Depot instead, cause I'm there more often than not.
Anyway, Cheshire Crossing seems to have gone over well. A lot of positive feedback. So much so that I am going to stick with the present update plan. 2 C&A's per week, and working on CC on the side.
And, to all of you: Yes, I have heard about Alan Moore's "Lost Girls". For those of you who don't know, "Lost Girls" is a graphic novel by Alan Moore that features the same three main characters (Alice, Wendy, and Dorothy). I was halfway through making CC issue 1 when I first heard about it. But "Lost Girls" is porn (yes, really), and Cheshire Crossing is an adventure story. So, aside from the fact that we both stole the same characters from popular literature, there's no overlap.
Plus, "Lost Girls" has no Mary Poppins. I mean, c'mon! Also, it's not out yet (though chunks of it have been published here and there for years). So, since it's not actually out yet and Cheshire Crossing is, we can safely categorize Lost Girls as "Cheshire Crossing slash-fanfiction".
When writing the current story arc, I considered having it take place in Fremont 1886 (instead of Washington, DC). And there would be ancestors of all the main characters in the story. Including "Newtonian Cop" (Cause Quantum Physics hasn't been invented yet).
