Title Text: vacations help me think

Something tells me that he's about to get the greatest source of inspiration soon. What better way to end a series?

Res is back. I kind of forgot about (I want to say him) that character.

I WAS RIGHT! He is Canadian :3

Also, Book 7? We only knew of like 4 before. Man, I hope Rick has names for all 7.
Hunters of the, Glory of the, Fall of the, and Hope of the are ones we know from before.
Also apparently the bookseries is called "The Pridelands Cycle", interesting note.

He can’t do it, our author,
he can’t begin the final chapter
He gave no thought to an end
and what he’ll go and do after.
Will he write like Rowling,
a vacant casual vacancy
or will he find a new way
different, the same, safe and scary?
It’s time to end but to break
and keep the pridelands alive
To find the great finale
is now the compelling drive.

(I am, of course, only talking of Res.)

*Ahem* Also, whoa, Pridelands is coming to an end! That's an interesting tidbit of knowledge. I have a feeling this crashing of temples may give him a bit of unexpected inspiration :D

Look at it this way Res, whichever way the finale goes, none of the fans would know to judge you for it.

Not gonna lie, I had a mini freak out session once I saw Res. I was already half-shaking from seeing the title "Meanwhile in Canada". It's been too long since Res has been here. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to open my window and scream to the heavens that Res is back.

I'm liking all of these older characters coming back recently. Crazy Steve, Fiddler and Keys, Res... Who's next, Jasper? (I hope it's Jasper)

Speaking of older characters... When was the last time Rex showed up?

As an aspiring author myself, I feel so much sympathy for him right now.

I have shoeboxes full of stories, I have an FF account with a bunch of unupdated works, I feel his pain so much.

I'm even behind on a blog I wanted to do a post a month on for my new years resolution.

Writing is hard. You can take all the notes you want, draft up a million and one excerpts, sit before the screen for a full week, and still feel just as stuck as before.

A million ideas can go through your head, but they don't take you one step further. I'm...probably rambling.

All I can say is maybe a break will do you some good Res. I'm at least rooting for you man. Or...tomcat. Just keep at it. The muse will strike again, so take it by the collar when it does.

Of course he's Canadian, his little symbol is a maple leaf. What else would he have been?

I was quite happy to see this when I watched Rick stream the comic earlier in the week, as not only is Res one of my favorites, but way back during RMFC (RIP) when he had a Housepets Q&A, I asked if Res was ever going to show up again, and he had said yes - so I'm happy to see that fulfilled.

I forgot how much I liked Rex.

and I can relate to Res as well. I probably would have created my own comic or wrote a book if I didn't keep getting artist's block.

Well, this one is "End of the"...

But, but...

It can't be the end!

He'll find he can't stop, and he'll have to do prequels or something.

Book 8 will be Pride of the Pridelands.

It's set before Fall of the Pridelands but you don't find that out until halfway through the book because it uses new characters including a wild cat, a yellow dog, a warrior fox, and a mystical rabbit prophet. Then you realize those weird bits in book 7 you didn't understand were hidden teasers.

The moon is high in the sky,
You're walking in the woods,
there's no one around,
And your phone is dead.
Out of the corner of your eye you spot him,
Shia Labeouf.

He's following you
About 30 feet back.
He gets down on all fours and breaks into a sprint.
He's gaining on you.
Shia Labeouf.

You're looking for your car,
But you're all turned around.
He's almost upon you now
And you can see there's blood on his face!
My god, there's blood everywhere!

Running for your life
(From Shia Labeouf.)
He's brandishing a knife.
(It's Shia Labeouf.)
Lurking in the shadows
Hollywood superstar Shia Labeouf.
Living in the woods,
(Shia Labeouf.)
Killing for sport,
(Shia Labeouf.)
Eating all the bodies
Actual, cannibal Shia Labeouf.

Now it's dark and you seem to have lost him,
But you're hopelessly lost yourself.
Stranded with a murderer,
You creep silently through the underbrush.
A-ha! In the distance,
A small cottage with a light on.
Hope!
You move stealthily toward it,
But your leg! AH! It's caught in a bear trap!

Gnawing off your leg,
(Quiet, quiet.)
Limping toward the cottage,
(Quiet, quiet.)
Now you're on the doorstep,
Sitting inside, Shia Labeouf.
Sharpening an ax,
(Shia Labeouf.)
But he doesn't hear you enter,
(Shia Labeouf.)
You're sneaking up behind him.
Strangling superstar Shia Labeouf.
Fighting for your life with Shia Labeouf,
Wrestling a knife from Shia Labeouf,
Stab it in his kidney.
Safe at last from Shia Labeouf.

You limp into the dark woods,
Blood oozing from your stump leg.
But you have won.
You have beaten Shia Labeouf
