Guys, I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the support you give us.
**Edit** I'm sorry guys, one of the big reasons I want to do this comic is to make other people happy, and the last thing you guys need to hear is all this stuff.
I'm not going to delete this post, since I already said it, but I'm going to minimize it because you know what? It's not important. I'm god damn lucky for everything I have and I need to stop freaking whining about this money thing. I know things will work out, I wouldn't dare put myself in this position if I didn't believe in us. I need to re-work the site and stuff, because I don't like the vibe of all this. We need to be strong and have faith; I'm sorry you caught me in a moment of weakness.
Below is the original post. You don't need to read it. I kept it because I already said it, and I won't go back on what is said, but it's just me pining on about the situation, which really isn't that bad.
To be honest, I really hate asking for help...it makes me feel like a failure, which tends to bring about a whole other slew of bad emotions with it.
As some of you know from the trans thread about 2 months ago, I already stated we had been living precariously and didn't know where money would come from in 2 months. About a month ago though, we were able to secure enough cash to last at least until August...but then when all this happened, the bank ended up taking our cash from a business debt with our bank.
I didn't realize they could siphon the money out of my personal bank account from money owed on a corporate debt, but apparently they can without a court order or anything. I kept my account active with them in good faith to show I wasn't running from the debt that I fully wanted and intended to pay off, but that apparently isn't a good idea since they took all our living money with no qualms. The good news is its being settled now, but at the cost of our living cash. I feel especially bad asking for help since we've had a lot of help form a lot of people already and this feels like a self-inflicted wound.
But, yeah, we're kinda out of options. I can only reduce our living expenses so much and I'm having trouble finding reliable income. I would go move in with family, but out of Pie's family and mine, there are only two people who we can live with; my dad and my grandpa. My dad wants Pie and I to split up and for me to go "rebuild from scratch" and my grandpa lives in Las Vegas. Along with the humidity concerns of Vegas in regards to Pie's skin, since my Grandpa doesn't know about Pie, I'm a bit worried.
With any luck, I'll get more contract work to supplement whatever LiA makes to meet our living expenses, but right now the radar is blank.
I confide all of this in you not as a plea for help. You have already shown us how much you care I am confident somehow, something will work out. I don't know how, but I know they will. Even if people can't support us with money, just reading and appreciating what we do is a LOT. It's not lost on us one bit. I guess I open up because I feel like, if you guys are here on the forums, you stepped into our house. You aren't fans - you're friends; and just as you guys share yourselves with us, I too will share what's going on in our lives.
Anyways, thanks for being so supportive. We both have a huge sense of appreciation for you all. It should be interesting, if nothing else, how the next few months pan out for us and LiA. No matter what, Life in Aggro won't be going away; we've come too far to quit now =D
