In reality Brian had to spend a fair chunk of the day he normally spends making my comics doing animation. He got to do it on the computer, and it was a less time-consuming process than hand-drawn animation. Unfortunately, less time-consuming isn't the same as not time-consuming. Thus, my Scribb1e has to be cut a bit short.
Since you aren't getting much of a Scribb1e, maybe you should go find something else neat to do? Brian started rewatching Blackadder, because he got it on DVD for Christmas, and it's awesome! (Also, DVDs and Blu-Rays are awesome. At the risk of sounding like Anna, you should definitely try to get physical media of the things you like…There are no ads, and nobody can just decide one day that the thing is unavailable. Of course, you do still have to have a machine to play the stuff on, but nothing's perfect!)
Anyway, Anna Log needs to figure out ways to be "authentic" without exploiting her friends…In general, it would be nice if people didn't exploit others and leave them responsible for more than they remotely asked for—especially when it isn't their idea in the first place. Basically, if you're going to waste someone's time with something for you, you should pay them at the very least. Otherwise, you could make them resent doing something they genuinely love, because they feel screwed over by it. And no, there totally isn't a subtext here, what are you talking about?
(Anna needs to pay people.)
