Dreams of Stardom by TheGouldenWay Dreams of Stardom by TheGouldenWay
Poor Riley doesn't have the slightest idea of what she's signed up for.

Punsters like Ellie are the perfect characters for me to make comics about because I love puns, so their dialogue comes naturally, and I love drawing terrified, disgusted, and generally uncomfortable facial expressions, so people's reactions come naturally.

See, puns are a display of linguistic knowledge, so you'd think more people would appreciate them, but apparently, during the Enlightenment, people started looking down on them for their humorous and imprecise nature.  Once again, the Enlightenment spoils everything.

He who would pun would pick a pocket!

Or so Stephen would say in "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World".  :)

I love puns....and this was cute as all get out.   I think you really capture Ellie's nature really well with these.

Thank you.  Ellie's probably my favorite character to write for because I don't have to force the puns.  She'd actually use them.

Naughty Dog really outdid themselves with Ellie, and with TLoU period.  :)

Game Informer (both readers polls and editor reports alike) cited TLoU as Game of the Year! :)     FTW, babaayyyyy!!! :)

I think it's "a lenient disposition."

lenient
le·ni·ent [lee-nee-uhnt, leen-yuhnt]
adjective 1. agreeably tolerant; permissive;

00110001 is correct.  A well-formatted response, too.  Very professional!  Prize-worthy, in fact.  What do they win, other Tom?

Other Tom: Glad you asked, Tom!  They win... a non-specific though reasonably sizable amount of respect from the linguistic community*!
Regular Tom: Woh-HOH, you lucky dog, or should I say... "Naughty Dog"?!
Other Tom: Don't actually post that.  It's embarras--

*The linguistic community has not shared with Mr. Tom (regular or otherwise) the right to arbitrarily hand out its respect.
