When you look into Abbey Road, Abbey Road looks into you

The ongoing story of Chelsea Chattan, a witch, who after a three year absence, returns to her hometown only to find out that things are not always what they seem.

When you look into Abbey Road, Abbey Road looks into you

Postby Sidhekin on Wed Nov 01, 2006 1:18 am

It just occured to me ... Abbey Road runs through Camden and the City of Westminster, right? Right next to Chelsea.

So you could say Chelsea has been looking into the Abbey Road for a long time ...

Geographically, Westminster is sandwiched by Camden and 'Kensington & Chelsea' so.. not a direct line of sight but I imagine if Chels' was in London for the weekend she'd likely hang out in Camden ;)

or I could kill everyone off and end it. I'm sure that would generate a good 5 minutes of buzz. ;)

Take care,

Tsk. Am I going to have to launch a "Save the CotC Forum" drive, Jamie? :D

Well, commentboards will attract more people... not sure why registering is such a hassle for some, unless they don't read any other Spot comics. *Shrug* But people do seem unsure about what to speculate on--a lot of the comments seem to simply be just that: "Love the comic!" and "Oooh, scary!" Just comments.

There are plenty of characters still in peril or of uncertain physical or mental state (Diane, Jacob, Van Helsing, Ben), and who knows what Lilith is really up to. But even with the prevalence of vampires and weres and illusion-generating vampiric warlocks... this is Jamie's universe, and too much is left unclear for there to be any real speculation. With some comics, forumites pass the time debating what could happen next, or simply extolling the minutia of art and storyline (or pointing out errors).

It's been said before that the CotC readers, possibly being mostly of an older generation, simply don't have the time to converse (or even compliment, as the case may be *Shrug* ). I guess we'll just have to get used to that fact. I suppose it's not so different from producing a print comic and having little contact with anyone besides the editor, publisher, etc. Except for the part about getting paid.

And yeah, I started posting on the commentboard because there was no one over here.

EDIT: But don't mind me. I'm just babbling. :)

I think you'll find that, becase we're older, we don't feel the need to comment unless something relatively dramatic, unexpected, important is happening in the comic. We've already discussed the implications of the current scene and, unlike younger readers, we don't see any point in going over the same things again and again. When Chelsea makes it out of Hell then there'll be new things to discuss but, for the time being, I, for one, am prepared to wait to see how she gets/is helped out.

Yeah, I know. (The current scene? You mean Gustov, Drac and Lilith being revealed, Chelsea actually turning the tables, and whatever is happening in the final panel? Jamie said it had been tweaked a bit, and was indicative of something to come, but no one can seem to agree on what we're seeing. (That falls under the "conversation" stuff I was talking about. ;) ) )

But even you yourself were doggedly making a new post for each strip for a while there, even when no one was commenting (I think that was also back when the strip wasn't updating thrice-weekly, either).

I'm not saying it should be endless, mindless chatter. But I can have a 40-hour-a-week job and still enjoy the details in the comic--but anyone can have a different interpretation from my own (I would hope). I comment on the off-chance (in this fandom, anyway) that someone may voice their opinion to counter my own. *Shrug* First impressions (of an online community) are hard to break.

And because I'm too lazy to have read the comic through any more than twice, I miss a lot of details, or run across them by accident while trying to refresh my memory... "What the heck is going on, now?" "When did we see that guy last...? Oh, it was a year ago. No wonder I'd forgotten." "Hey, where did that thing go? Wasn't it there a second ago?" And I know I'm not the only one to either remember certain details, or be willing to trawl the archives to look for them. :P

Eh. A more silent fandom means Jamie has more time to himself.

At that's exactly the reaction I wanted. :D

There lies part of the problem. I have plenty of that already.

I guess it would help if I was a little more interactive, but I'm not the pitchman I need to be for this line of work. "Chelsea's Court", the LJ Community was supposed to be a springboard for me to discuss the comic, but I can't help feeling it would be a bit too pretentious.

Good Night and Good Luck,

It doesn't help that there are other more-active forums out there as well. So you end up wondering "what am I doing wrong?"

Heck, I usually get comments on the reviews I write when I talk about something contriversial. So I'm left with both trepidation and excitement when I find comments on the Tangents forum. I want to hear what people think of the review... but don't want to get into "drama" and arguments, especially as I tend to annoy people by trying to be accommodating. (Several people feel I should stand up for myself more.)

Jamie deserves a lot of commentary and praise for his comic. I honestly don't know why he doesn't get more, other than the fact the forums have a critical mass at which point you get a lot of commentary... and the health-related hiatuses may have caused some of the Forum Cats to stop posting here.

Heck I'm always here I just curl up quiet in the corner. Actually over 100 posts in 4-odd years aint bad for me for a forum ;)

I'm still curious as to what happened in that last panel there with Gustov (11 Nov) but I'm a patient woman..

This forum is about as active as several others belonging to web strips that I read...The only exception being CRFH, but I can't make out what the people there are talking about half the time, anyway. ;)

(I've just gotten back to reading COTC after losing track of it for a few months...amazing plot developments in the meantime! I'm frustrated now because I'm caught up and want to know what happens next. )
