    No you won't.

    • Link

      So you unfollowed me a commented this, likely because you're buttmad over the pet/master disagreement on FD_2.

      You sure showed me.

      • Link

        Oooooooooh

        • Link

          That whole thing was a laugh. I'll PM you.

      • Link

        Huh? Unfollowed you where? I just saw this on the index O_o
        I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to be mad about?

        • Link

          You just saw this in the index and made a comment like that?

          • Link

            Yeah, like "No you won't" because the fandom will always give you reasons to make more comics like this. Which I enjoy. I've commented on them before.
            So I'm confused; I don't remember any comment you made on the thread? Directed at me? Unfollowed you where?

    I SPENT MY RENT MONEY ON SOMETHING STUPID EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS!

  • Link

    i guess in the case where making a living is a struggle and welfare does not hold out but yeah i totally get where you're coming from. this gets irritating

  • Link

    I feel terrible doing this, but knowing that psychologists found the more we see a word the more meaningless it is to us is why I refer 'emergency' commissions as 'the baked beans fund'. The money I received two years ago -the only time I had to do the baked beans fund- was enough to not spiral endlessly into debt, and also buy baked beans. Ohhh Yeaaaaah~

    • Link

      Oh, this is certainly not about asking for emergency stuff in general. This is about people who abuse the word 'emergency' when needing money for things they knew were coming. Emergency, to me, is something out of total left field and sudden.

      • Link

        The word itself is telling of its nature! Emergence, to EMERGE as if from beyond some vast and vile threshold unbidden. At least in the human brain, anything that can be described as emerging is generally a bad thing.

        Cancer emerges.
        Godzilla emerges.

        Your heating bill does not emerge. It punctuates, or it drops, or if you're like me it piles up until you can create the Leaning Tower of Postage, but it does not emerge.

  • Link

    egad, it annoys me to no bounds when that happens. This one artist will beg for emergency commissions literally every two weeks because he's starving and his rent is a month late etc etc... and then he buys a fursuit.

  • Link

    The fandom is going to have to become less cynical and dumb first.

    • Link

      I think it could do with some more cynicism to be frank. It's people being optimistic and gullible that allows people like this to keep doing what they're doing.

      • Link

        You know, you DO have a point.

        I still stand by my "dumbness" assessment though.

        • Link

          Maybe we can settle somewhere around the maxim, Be a good dude don't be a sucker?
          And maybe a paper on identifying prevalent logical fallacies in the fandom that keep shit like this alive.

          • Link

            I would enjoy seeing a furry comic about logical fallacies actually. Perhaps we could call it Ad Furminem.

  • Link

    Why should only banksters can get away with perpetual crises? ;P

  • Link

    I've also seen a lot of EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS where the person ends up not even doing the artwork. Y'know, since they're busy with the emergency. Forever.

    • Link

      and saying 'donations' wouldn't be as fruitful i guess

  • Link

    Guy I knew had an emergency three months in a row, kept on taking donations to help him make ends meet. Always had an inordinately high amount of art to post up that same month. I'm not one to point fingers or make assumptions but man...

  • Link

    Noo but I love your cynical comics don't ever change

  • Link

    Resist menstruation joke... resist menstruation joke.... mmmeeerrrrRRRGGHHHHAAAAA sets self on fire and dives out the window

  • Link

    frame this and put it in the Met. Pure masterpiece

  • Link

    THIS, and hey it's real cool when people do this and then say "oh wait, emergency over! i'm fine and don't actually need your money. but i'm keeping it".

  • Link

    I imagine that some people's lives really are one continuous emergency: no order, no control, like a failed state. But I always feel queasy when I see panicky offers of underpriced furry sketch commissions, used like a universal get-out-of-jail card. Who's exploiting whom in that transaction?

  • Link

    But I love your cynical snarky comics about the fandom. They're witty, well rendered and so entertaining. I beg of you! MORE MORE!

  • Link

    Cynical is fine, mostly because good lord we need to hear this sort of thing more often.

  • Link

    I don't get it with some artists, some have EMERGENCY SKETCHES periodically while that shit is like once a month or every other month for others. On top of this, I'm also getting skeptical on those types of things.

  • Link

    The Furry Who Cried 'Emergency'

  • Link

    'oh no, rent's due! just like every month! EMERGENCY EMERGENCY!!!!!!!!!'
    or 'oh no, tuition's due, but i just bought a fursuit! EMERGENCY!!!'
    but the best is 'oh no, i want this item that is completely nonessential and 100% a luxury item but i don't have enough money, EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS!!!'

    it's gotten to the point where everyone yells emergency so much that i don't try and get 'emergency commissions' even when it really is an emergency.

  • Link

    Just spent 200 dollars on fridge repairs. Didn't bat an eye. No emergency here.

    Yay for financial responsibility!

    • Link

      Financial...responsibility?

      What is that is that a new video game is it on steam I'ma buy it

      • Link

        Its called a full time job that then means you can't have any fun due to working so much ._.

        • Link

          Alas! That seems to be the choice most of us face. It's either money without the free time to enjoy it, or free time without the money to do anything in it.

          • Link

            Free time and a social life, but broke as piss, or financially stable and FOREVER ALONE. :C

            • Link

              I, personally, am looking for the cheat code. >.>

              • Link

                Its not like the cheat code works anyways. Its like, you have to enter it well over a million times to even have a slight chance of clearing...

  • Link

    Eeeeeeeeeemuuuuurrrrrrrrrr........ into infinity

  • Link

    thank you for this holy shit

  • Link

    Guys I need help because I can't make rent. There's nothing I could have done to avoid this. Please ignore that $200 fetish commission in my recent uploads.

  • Link

    This reminds me of a story long ago..

  • Link

    EMUUUUUUUUR!
    I literally lol'ed
    <3

  • Link

    I work in the billing department for a communications utility company (TV/internet/phone) we always get so many people calling in desperately tring to avoid being disconnected after Christmas. I always want to say to these people, "What they should do with Christmas is hold it on the same day every year so people could plan for it and not be ambushed by the sudden expendatures."

  • Link

    since they can't get off their asses to fix it for themselves, lawl...

  • Link

    Why can so few furries who draw/write well keep a job for ten minutes
