Chapter 5: Lit, page 105.

Her college-ruled notepads are filled with columns of “Mrs. Hypatia BJK” and little hearts. Over and over and over.

In other news, I hope to get back on track, now. Things have quieted down a little, over here.

In OTHER other news, I’m on Goop, or +, or Google+, or Google Plus, or whatever we’ve all decided to call it. it’s pretty fun. I blog there. You can read it here.

    <3 BJK

    I love the speech bubble embellishments. The music note and the sparkles look brilliant. Patti’s expression in the fourth panel is adorable/hilarious. In fact I think all her expressions in this scene have been great.

  3. myles says:

    Also it just occured to me that this could be the beginning of Templar turning into a harem comic based around Ben where all the girls have prominent facial markings. We’ve got freckles girl and now birthmark girl, all we need is a couple more and then they move in with him and boom, harem complete. I mean, Ben is pretty much an anime protagonist already. I think this could be a bold new direction for the comic.

  4. Carabug says:

    I hate harem shows so much, and yet…and yet… I want this to happen.

    Also, I love Unimpressed Val.

  5. Hanna says:

    Starting to look like it really is Ben… except this comic has a tendency to make obvious choices turn out to be nothing more but smoke screens.

    • Abandon says:

      To be honest, if I got to read the rest of that story Ben was working on that started out as slash fiction and ended up violent murder fiction, I’d want to read more of it.

      • Hanna says:

        I would like that too, but I don’t think we’ll get more than a snippet there, another here – and that’s at best, too.

  6. Pearle says:

    Butler’s wake, huh? Sounds like a festival of some sort.

  7. coldfrog says:

    I’m curious what kind of writing could make a girl like Hypatia swoon. And I wonder if I want to know that Ben actually wrote it. And yeah, the details really are pointing towards Ben, but I’m not going all in on that just yet.

    • alec says:

      Probably boys fucking.

      What am I saying, it’s definitely boys fucking. Slash and its disciples are an emergent property of the universe. There are self-replicating peptides in the Jovian atmosphere as we speak disturbing their normal Brownian motion to take the vague form of a fully naked Leonard Nimoy with wings. If anything, it would be weirder if there weren’t.

  8. Cyanmanta says:

    *smacks forehead* I can’t believe it took me so long to figure out who BJK was…

  9. M says:

    Goop will steal all your datas and sell them off in slavery.

    Just saying ;)

  10. hielario says:

    Maybe it’s Mesmer… using the Ben’s name?

    • Abandon says:

      That wouldn’t surprise me.

    • George Spelvin says:

      Mesmer only just opened Ben’s laptop, so it can’t be him. Yes, I know it’s been a long time for us, but not for Templar. Ben’s only just left Kingdom Come. Besides, can you really see Mesmer stealing Ben’s work but still credit Ben?

  11. leslie says:

    val seems jealous. :)

  12. alec says:

    Hah! I told you the baldo was a girl!

    I… think?

  13. wut says:

    I love Hypatia’s expression on the bottom left. It has that level of exaltation that I would typically respond with, “Dude stop making that face.”

  14. Osten says:

    Okay, now I really really really want to make a copy-book. We should do this people. We should make it a thing. Go out, make copy-books!

  15. aboulic says:

    well, she certainly makes me wish i was BJK.
