A sad notice: As many of you may already know, Comicality has been fighting an illness that took him away from us repeatedly for the last year or so. That illness as it turns out was a failing liver. On Tuesday, April 16, 2024 Comicality lost his battle and quietly passed away with family near by; taking a piece of all of our hearts with him. He leaves many of us with the amazing work that he has shared throughout the decades that he has been “COMICALITY” to us and much like that work, I know my heart along with many others, is now forever incomplete. We will continue maintaining the Voy forums but will need to ask for forgiveness as we figure out how to do that agin. It's been a very long time for me at least. - Jeff


Please help us give Comicality's mom a hand with the unexpected final expenses that she no longer has help with: https://gofund.me/7dadd629

  • Imagine Magazine Question for 6/15 -- JeffsFort, 00:37:42 06/13/24 Thu


    After quite a few conversations with other readers of the works of my favorite online bossy boss ::giggle::, I've come to the conclusion that we all have many things in common when it comes to how we respond to the characters in our favorite "Shack" story. I think it's funny that of any other author, if you ever said you had an honest crush on their main character in 'X' titled novel, everyone in the room, including the author, would probably give you a weird look. That's commonly not the case with our Shack group and a day going by without some form of character crush being outed is an off day for any of us. (I see you nodding over there ;)

    So, of all the stories that Comicality wrote, in all the worlds that he created, which character is your "I wish he was real..." character. You can wish it for any reason. You want to help him, you want to hug him, you want to be his boyfriend and do unspeakable things to him... You get the idea.

  • Not sure if anyone noticed. -- TurtleBoy, 10:02:01 05/06/24 Mon
    In the last issue that Comsie released, the Christmas issue, #103, there was a piece about Trey Braine, a talented 10 year old dancer on TikTok. It probably didn't get as much attention as it deserved because Comsie didn't include any videos of him, which is literally what he's know for. :P

    Here's the article: https://imagine-magazine.org/releases/volume-103/trey-braine-snow-angel/

    Anyway, Trey Braine made it onto Britain's Got Talent a couple weeks ago. Thought it would be cool for people here to see:


    You should check out his dancing on TikTok, too (while you Americans can! :P) https://www.tiktok.com/@treybraineofficial

  • Words for Comicality -- Cirrus, 14:51:44 05/05/24 Sun
    It feels like I’ve spent about a week writing this and re-writing this and adding to it and changing it. But eventually you just have to get it out there. You may see this cross-posted in a few different places. Just trying to reach out to different audiences.

    WORDS FOR COMICALITY

    It seems only a few weeks ago that I learned Comsie was going through such serious health issues. And now, just like that, he’s gone. It’s dreadfully unfair that he was taken from us with so much unfinished business. On NIfty, a site he contributed stories to for 26 years, his departure is marked by the message “Author Comicality passed away”. That’s it? That’s all after the hundreds of thousands of words he wrote? Comicality deserves more words remembering him. Hundreds of words. Thousands of words. All of the words. And I can’t write all the words he deserves, but I’m going to give my best effort at writing some of them.

    I first stumbled across Comsie in 1997 or 1998? I can’t remember the exact date, but I started reading “New Kid in School” from the very first chapter. Then he started the website and got an email address and I reached out to him to say how much I liked the stories. The internet was a different place then. Everything seemed hand-made in Times New Roman, Facebook, Google and Amazon and their algorithms hadn’t taken over the internet, and communities were finding each other for the first time around topics like how hot teenage boys were.

    I kept emailing him on and off ever since then. People you only know online tend to flitter in and out of your life - closest confidant one minute, vanished into the ether the next. But for over 25 years, Comsie was a constant. He’s the friend I’ve known the longest that I never ever met. Because I wrote to him so occasionally, I would write these long, rambling emails with many, many questions. And Comsie being Comsie, he would feel like he would owe me a decent reply, so sometimes it took weeks or even months for him to respond. They were always worth it though - my long emails sometimes got even longer replies.

    Comsie was the exception to most of the authors you’d find on Nifty or Gay Authors or elsewhere. Through his forums and emails, he put so much of his own life out there, the good parts and the bad. Being so open brought on a lot of hate mail. I’m not sure how he put up with it year after year. He shared parts of his difficult childhood, the constant money worries of being a retail employee, his love for Chicago. I’m sad he never made it back there, but glad he was surrounded by family at the end.

    You felt like you knew him, but maybe that’s the illusion on online-only friendships, where you only know the parts of someone’s life they share with you. Despite being so open about some parts of his life, he guarded his privacy zealously in others. In over 25 years of emails, he never shared a picture of himself with me. I visited Chicago a couple of times (he had numerous suggestions on where to visit, and was very amused by my attempt to eat a whole Chicago deep dish pizza by myself) but we never met up. Maybe it’s better that way: the Comsie in my head will probably be forever in his early 20s, the age at which we first started talking.

    The Comicality writing process could be maddening as a reader. He never liked to focus on just one story at a time. I think he wrote chapters about whichever characters were interesting to him at the time. And he always had ideas for new stories. It seemed like for every story he brought to a final conclusion, he would start four more. And some of his series had epically long hiatuses between updates (“Taryn’s Song” had a SEVEN YEAR gap between chapters at one point). I used to joke that he never wanted to finish a series because he never wanted to say goodbye to the characters he created. Now my Comicality thoughts will be filled with questions that will never be answered.

    * What was going to happen at the party and would Brandon and Billy ever get back together in “Billy Chase”?

    * Would Artie and Scotty start talking to each other in “Jesse-101”?

    * How was Eric and Dustin’s story going to end in “Untouchable”?

    * Would Justin fulfil his vampire prophecy in “Gone From Daylight”? And how did Taryn and Alec get separated in “Taryn’s Song”?

    I’m sure everyone has their favourite Comicality storyline that they wanted to see resolved. It seems somehow appropriate that Comsie’s legacy will be dozens of dangling plotlines. Even “New Kid in School”, the story that started it all, was still unfinished after 27 years.

    If there’s one story I’m glad Comsie did finish, it was “My Only Escape”. It’s the most deeply personal story Comsie’s ever written, built on memories from a very dark part of his life. Being able to write from his real lived experience gave the story a reality and rawness I could never emulate on that subject. From the first chapter to the last, it took him 21 years to finish. It was sexy and heart-wrenching and moving. I’d urge everyone to read it again - even just the very last chapter. I was in literal tears during Zack’s conversation with Mr Raffe. It wasn’t just a conversation between Zack and his teacher - it was conversation between Comsie and all the people both real and in his head that told him his stories weren’t good enough. Out of all his stories, I’m glad his readers got to see that one in its full, final, finished form. Did you know at one point the early chapters were adapted for Australian radio? Wild to think about.

    Comsie did soooo much in his online life. It wasn’t just the stories. It was the website, the forums, “Imagine Magazine”, the advice to other authors, the advice to people young and old going through tough times, the YouTube channel, the gallery. I have no idea where he found the time, and the volume of work probably didn’t get nearly the appreciation it deserved.

    He motivated me to write my own stories and share them (although very carefully). My major interactions with him over the last year revolved around submitting the chapters of “Dear Ronan” to “Imagine Magazine”. I told him I was holding the story hostage, and wouldn’t let him see the finished complete product until he published chapter 450 of “Billy Chase”. He laughed at my threats and happily ignored them.

    He deserved better. He deserved longer. He deserved the time to finish all of the stories he started. I think I’ll always have regrets that I didn’t write to him more, that I didn’t tell him everything I liked about his stories at every opportunity. I always wanted him to stretch himself, to challenge himself to be a better writer because he had that talent in him. I teased him about some of his tendencies as an author: like starting every new story with a three paragraph inner monologue from the protagonist, or his fondness for “wise sage” characters who dispense advice in long soliloquies. Like perhaps most authors, he remembered every negative thing I ever said about his stories. But I hope he remembered all the positive things I said too… like how much I like Ariel’s “voice”, or how hot the game of footsie on the couch in “Sneak Away” was, or how moving I found the conclusion to “My Only Escape”.

    I’m not sure I believe in an afterlife, but I’d like to believe in one for Comsie…. Something like “The Good Place”, where he has all the time in the world to finish all the stories he started, preferably with a cute speedo-clad teenager (or three!) by his side. And then when he finally puts his pen down for the last time, he could return to the universe with a sense of mission accomplished.

  • Even from the grave, Chester brings joy to us all... -- bwctwriter (), 20:48:51 02/25/24 Sun
    From what I can tell, the song was more of a concept Chester, et al created, but was never finished before he died... They released this short song a couple days ago, and I honestly hope they do more with it. I don't even care if they AI the shit out of it, because Chester Bennington's voice was just.. Unique and gritty, full of lots of emotion... But who knows if the rest of LP would be willing to go that route.

    At any rate, it's still pretty cool hearing something from Chester that we never heard before. :-)

  • Slowly on my way back... -- Comicality, 21:42:03 02/17/24 Sat


    I truly TRULY cannot thank a few of you enough for all of of the amazing help you've given me to help me start my way towards putting back online and getting things back online here. It took some hours of dedicated help, and thanks to you, I'm starting to get back in working order, and they are both making it possible thanks to their expertise.

    Also, my health is picking up. I still have to go through a bit of physical therapy, but I'm able to walk again, and I can think straight again and I'm I'm thankful for as well. So I will be in contact again soon, and I'm happy to say that my email is up and working again as well! Cool? I'm catching up as quickly as possible. I'll be in touch soon, and I love you lots!

    Ok...soooo...ummm I died. Just about as good an explanation as any. I will try to give more details as I can, but I was recently released from the hospital yesterday, and I'm rebuilding my life as best as I can, and I'm also working from an entirely different laptop that I don't understand at all. I can't reach my old files, I can't even seem to find a way to login to my email right now. I'm going to try my best this weekend, though to at least find a way to make contact again. I spent the last month trying to survive some really tough times, and now I have to retrain myself all over again. Hang in there with me so I can find and rebuild everything that I lost. K?

    I love you all. And I'm sorry for being so lost here. Everything looks so alien to me right now. :(

  • Why? -- MeLoveYouLongTime, 13:56:49 01/28/24 Sun
    Why Why Why can't or won't you ever finish a story?? You're so concerned with vampires and zombies and other weird things about boy celebrities that you've never satisfied the desires of your original fan base when you actually used to have a fan base. It's no mystery why you've got like 4 or 5 guys that still converse with you anymore on any of your formats. Finish something! Bring us to a resolution on something! Make Billy actually get a driver's license after he should actually have children! Make the new kid in school actually go to college for God's sake! He'd be like 28 by now! The reason your readership has waned is you've ignored your readership. You're extremely talented. But being talented isn't enough. Self indulgence is great if that's all you're looking for. But you could and should be so much more. A fan.

    I am having some internet problems at the moment that I've been trying my best to solve, but I am totally out of ideas and was hoping somebody here could give me some help.

    Does anybody here work for Yahoo.com, or have a connection to someone who does? What I need to do is seriously a ten second fix. Ten seconds, and everything is back in order. But I can't get to the place I need to be in order to put the ten second fix to any use. If that makes sense.

    Please...if you think you can help me somehow, just send me an email at Comicality@shackoutback.net as soon as you get a chance so I can get everything back on schedule. It's been a few weeks now. Ugh! Frustration!

  • Imagine Magazine Question For 12/31 -- Comicality, 20:49:08 12/31/23 Sun



    zone-less-day.jpg


    Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock...

    Do you ever really think about it? Every single second, more time passes you by. Time that you could have been using to have fun, to make love, to pursue your goals...there it goes. There goes another one. And another one. They add up pretty quickly, believe me.

    Do you have any goals for this year? Maybe you want to ask for that raise at work. Maybe you want to travel to that place that you've always wanted to visit. Maybe you've been building up the courge to ask that one cute boy out on a date. Maybe you want to get in the gym and drop ten to fifteen pounds and get a routine going. Who knows? Whatever it is that you might want in the future...what happens if you start working on it as soon as you wake up tomorrow morning? Better yet...where would you be right now if you had started working on it one year ago?

    Nobody gets to live forever. And while procrastination is an art...do you ever stop and think about how much time you waste just doing nothing? I know that everybody has their responsibilities and we all get tired from time to time and end up having to crunch everything together all at once when the pressure is on...but how much time do we just 'waste'?]
    ]
    Watching TV. Playing video games. Sleeping for more hours than we really need. Watching Youtube or hanging out in chatrooms or reading Facebook. Think about all things you could accomplish in a single day with just a little bit of focus and determination.

    Our first question for the new year is...do you feel as though you waste too much time doing nothing? Or are you a real go-getter when it comes to the things you want most? Maybe there's a balance between the two? Who knows?

    Give us your thoughts on this one! I'm curious as to what you might say. And be sure to tell us why! He give me a couple of sentences at least, will ya? Think about it. It might just help you put things in perspective!

    Anyway, I spent yesterday and will spend a few more hours tonight answering emails! When I get to about 200 or so, I'll release them all abd they'll be heading your way. Some of them might be from a few weeks ago when I was in my unholy writing frenzy...so if you get something from, like...Thanksgiving or something, it's because I didn't get a chance to answer them until now. So sorry for that, but you might get some of those emails tonight. K? I'll keep my fingers crossed! And I'll try to answer more next week as well! Start off the new year with a few hugs and giggles!

    Stories start again this weekend! So I'll seezya then! MWAH! Take care! And stay beautiful, Shackers!

    Merry Christmas, Shackers! Sit back with some hot chocolate so you can have some fun this year!

    ”Guardians Of The Galaxy Holiday Special"

    The-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Holiday-Special-poster

    Whether you're a big Marvel/MCU fan or not, this was a one time holiday special that is definitely worth a watch for the sake of a couple of chuckles today! Now, I know that all 25 to 30 movies and TV shows are all connected and you may think that you have to know them all before you get into this one...but you really don't. Basically, the lead character was abducted as a child in the 80's and has been a Han Solo type of space smuggler ever since, with his new family of other misfits. Oh...and someone he loved very much died in one of the movies not long ago. There. Everything that you need to know in order to watch this is all summed up right there. Done.

    Guardians is one of the most beloved Marvel series of the bunch, and this is just a Christmas special that they put together for a good time. You get plenty of laughs, some action, some warm and fuzzy feelings, and some music on top of it all. Basically, even though everyone is in it, the story is mostly center around Drax and Mantis...who make for a ton of giggles just by themselves as they visit Earth for the first time in order to kidnap Kevin Bacon! Hehehe, long story...

    Anyway, stay warm today, put on those new slippers you got from under the tree, and let this hour long presentation leave you with a great big holiday smile on your face! :)

    Enjoy!

    MV5-BYTYw-Nj-Vh-YTIt-Yj-Q0-Yy00-OWRi-LWFj-Zj-Yt-Mj-Vm-Nz-Bm-Mz-Q2-MWQ0-Xk-Ey-Xk-Fqc-Gde-QXVy-MTA4-Nj

    Despite being funny in some of the grumpiest ways, there are a lot of really heartfelt moments in the movie that people who haven't seen it yet missed out on. And it just makes for a good time, you know?

    Bill Murray plays Vincent, a grouchy older man who smokes, drinks, gambles, and is always a few dollars away from being completely broke. And that's all that you get to see of him until some brand new neighbors move in next door, including an extremely hard working single mother who ends up needing someone to watch after her young son when she can't get home. Despite his frustration and annoyance, the isolated Vincent agrees to babysit the boy...for a fee of course...and the two find a bit of an uneasy bond between them.

    This is one of those movies that just makes you feel good once you realize what's really going on here, and it'll leave you feeling warm and fuzzy by the end. Sometimes a gruff exterior isn't representative within. Enjoy!

  • Quick question... -- Comicality, 10:14:52 12/15/23 Fri


    ...does anybody here know how to make a 'cover letter' for Nifty.org? I never needed one before, but I might this time, and when I tried to look it up the internet was NO help at all. :( And all Nifty says is "Be sure to put this in your cover letter". Ummm, WHAT cover letter? Can I see a sample? Get an explanation? Can anybody hear me?

    I don't want to send an email to ask and be a pest, but...I'd like to know what the heck they're talking about.

    Can any of you guys help me out here?

  • Feeling a bit better... -- Comicality, 04:48:54 12/02/23 Sat


    I'm feeling a bit better. Sorry. It kind of hits me without warning, but I'm doing ok. Just needed a bit of medicine and rest. So that's cool.


    Starting on Monday, I'll start our Christmas Cutie Jukebox on the Shack's main forum! ( http://www.voy.com/15900/ ) And that's every day for the holiday season. Might as well have some fun and get our hearts in the spirit, right? Seezya then!

    "I AM GROOT!!!" :P

  • Some cheering up for the holidays! :) -- Comicality, 21:51:55 11/29/23 Wed


    Sorry to say that I'm feeling a bit sick at the moment, but I'm so used to being ill every couple of weeks that it barely gets me down anymore. I guess it just is what it is. ::Shrugs::

    BUT...I've been writing so much over the past few weeks, that I'm still close to being on schedule! So all of that hard work isn't going to waste. :P

    So check back in an hour or two for the stories to continue while I get myself back in working order. Cool? And more emails are going out tomorrow! Promise! And I love you lots!

    Also, hehehe, I got a Christmas pressent as a donation to the https://paypal.me/Comsie account! And that was super awesome! So thank you so much! And a couple of you asked what I might want for Christmas so they can help out! Hehehe, well...I want what I wanted from you guys EVERY Christmas! And it's free! ::Giggles:: So yeah, bring me that!






    LOL! Just wanted to feel silly for a little bit! Makes me feel good! Mwah! I'll be back in a day or two when I feel better...

  • ~ ~ ~ Monday Movie Matinee ~ ~ ~ -- Comicality, 11:22:39 11/27/23 Mon


    This week’s 3M selection was quite the surprise, and just as creepy as you would ever hope that it could be!

    ”Talk To Me"

    talk-to-me

    I never, in my wildest dreams, would have thought that the hilarious crew behind the Youtube ‘Racka Racka’ videos would have eventually evolved to the point of making one of the creepiest internationally released horror movies of the whole year! And yet, here we are!

    There’s just something that’s fundamentally unsettling about this movie in general, to be honest….and it seems to touch a nerve deep down that you can’t quite explain, but it sticks with you, regardless. The movie is about a dark ritual that causes a temporary possession by the spirits that lie just beyond the limits of our physical world. And what do we use this for? We have a group of college kids making a game out of the evil practice and using it to basically get ‘high’! Hehehehe, like you didn’t see THAT coming! :P

    However, when a young woman and a couple of her friends take things a bit too far...they find themselves dealing with an evil power that refuses to let go of them! And our creepy movie begins to unravel from there! A very cool surprise, and definitely worth a look! So check it out, and have yourselves good time. ::Nods:: Hehehe! >:)

    Swords just look like they hurt! Hehehe, like...a lot! This week's 3M does its best to make you all remember that!

    ”Blue Eyed Samurai"

    Blue-Eye-Samurai-poster

    Now this is a show that I'm still watching, so I haven't reached the end yet...plus I saw that there are plans for a season 2 so I may not get a bunch of answers...but what I've seen so far is pretty badass! :)

    It is both an action story, a tragic story, and a mystery, that you sort of have to get in to and follow the twists and turns to watch the story unfold naturally. So, it is what it is, and there will be blood! Oh yes! Quite a bit of blood! :)

    Just...if your gonna cute me up, break my bones, and knock out my teeth...can you not drop pearls of wisdom and deep quotes on me while you do it? Hehehe! How embarrassing, you know? LOL!

    So check this amazing animation out! It can be a lot of fun!

  • I've completely worn myself out. I really don't have anything more to give...//////////////// -- Comicality, 11:52:04 11/19/23 Sun


    But...it'll pay off. I'm sure of it. :P

    Also...

    "What If...?" Season 2! Sweet!!! If you missed the first season, you've been missing out! A little Adam Warlock this season? A little Shang Chi? And wait...is that BILLY at the beginning??? That would be awesome! Not nly is Julian Hillard older and 'Young Avengers' age now, but he'd be the first (and cutest) openly gay teen boy character in the MCU! Sighhhh...dreamy!




    Hiiiiiii, Julian! ::Blushes::

  • Don't know why people are giving this show so much hate without seeing a single episode yet... -- Comicality, 20:01:17 11/16/23 Thu


    ...Other than people who think it's funny or necessary to complain about everything...but the show looks fine to me. What's the big problem? I've never read the books, so maybe that's it. But I saw the movies and didn't have any problem with them. So what is it...? I feel so bad for people who can't enjoy anything in their lives. It must suck to never EVER be happy with anything! You know? And then hate other people for finding some joy in their lives where you can't. Yikes...what a meaningless existence.

    I'll be there. I wanna see this. :) Let's check it out together!

    Honestly...

    I totally would have voted for Jacob Tremblay for President. :P Hehehe, cute...

    (Of course...this episode shows us that voting for an immature spoiled brat of a child has its consequences. ::Nods::)
