Can you tell working on the IDW comics made me feel a little inadequate about my paneling?

Funny story about the runup to this: My five-year-old laptop, on which I'd made every page of the comic thus far, bricked last week! I was already planning to move the operation over to my more powerful desktop anyway, and I didn't lose anything critical... but still, what timing!

Anyway, here's what we'll call for the moment The Ticket Master.

Bricked a five year old, huh? Story time is about kids getting hurt, real life, in game, it's all good!

Just recently my character Doc in Fallout Equestria took massive damage while assisting a town defend itself from a pirate raid. Doc was in the town tavern, helping in protecting a large chunk of the citizens with guns and molotov cocktails.

And then a pirate shot Doc three time in a burst, with two bullets being critical hits. Doc took a massive 159-point damage to his chest and head. His max HP is 149. Doc was nowhere near full health at the time.

Taking armor into account, Doc was in critical condition, laying half-unconscious in a pool of blood and -61 hit points. Some NPCs grabbed him and dragged him to another room in the tavern and someone tried to stabilize him. The other players don't know where Doc's at or what his condition is. He's MIA to them. Meanwhile, Doc is in a kind of half-coma dream where he's fighting voices and inner demons because he refuses to just let himself die this way.

And the townsfolk really don't want him to die. He's the most skilled doctor in town and not a bad shooter. They need him right now!

Dang it, Doc! You can't die now! Your one of the few reoccurring characters left that I enjoy reading about!

When I was ten, my best friend and I had to watch my three-year-old brother one day, so we took him to the school playground, where he enthusiastically took to the monkey bars. He was fine climbing up the circular rungs in the center on his own, but he slipped once he reached the top. Down he went, hitting his head against every bar as he fell.

My friend and I watched him land. I suspect our stunned looks matched his, waiting for the moment he'd catch his breath and burst out crying. I was dreading having to take him home and the tongue-lashing I'd get from my mother when I did.

"Wow!" my brother declared, with that bewildered look still plastered on my face.

My friend and I couldn't help but crack up. It was a good five minutes before any of us could stop laughing. What a relief. My brother remained as Abel as ever, and I'd be spared a Caining.

Years later, I had to tell that story to his four-year-old daughter after another kid pushed her foot and caused her to slip on a different set of monkey bars. She'd never split her lip before, and the combination of the pain and the bleeding freaked her out. Knowing her daddy had been through similar events was about the only way to console her.

...I didn't tell her about the time I came within millimetres of sacrificing her older brother to a ceiling fan, though.

Accidentally burned down an orphanage while trying to kill a rat swarm. I was throwing an alchemist fire, missed, and it hit the building instead.

Our group's Paladin spent a lot of time running around and rescuing orphans. It was inspirational.

this is why alchemist's frost is a much better investment for those who can't readily extinguish fires with magic.
