    TORGUE LIKES YOU’RE NEW UPDATE!!!!!
    - Mr. Torgue

  2. Sejanoz says:

    While I understand that this is to get the cast of Enjuhneer up to date with ours, I kinda don’t get why Myra would be freaked out by the sudden change. I thought it was well established that their universe is broken as a result of the Pocky incident?

    Then again, I suppose we could just chalk it up to Myra being Myra.

    To answer your question, I’ve been re-reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

  3. Graham says:

    So, what happened to that second comic you were working on? Still in progress, or did you give up on it?

  4. Sam says:

    I found a few items on your list I haven’t read before. Neverwhere and American Gods both sound good. I’ll have to check them out.

    You should check out Epic, Conor Kostick which I really liked. The second book Saga was meh but Epic lived up to its name.

    Other than that I have been reading some John Green books which are really good.

  5. You’re back! I’ve missed your comics, here’s to the new update, cheers!

  6. Actually, that kind of weather change happened last week at my college.
    Berkshire County, MA. Around 1PM, we hit 50 degrees one day. Next day was 20 degrees, plus strong winds. All hail the weather, ruler of chaotic schedules.

  7. Lixie says:

    Yay you’re back!

  8. Seamus says:

    How have you read The Silmarillion without reading Lord of the Rings?

  9. Renold says:

    I’ve been reading webcomics. Too many webcomics. >.>;

  10. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @Mr. Torgue
    The proper usage would be “YOUR NEW UPDATE”, not “YOU’RE NEW UPDATE”. ‘Your’ is possessive, ‘you’re’ is a contraction that is short for ‘you are’.
    @Jenny
    Woohoo! Update! And even better, it’s on schedule!

  11. N says:

    Looks like Kyurem, Dialga, and Future Twilight all got together and decided to screw with the Enjuhneer crew again.
    Does anyone know where Pinkie Pie’s pocky went?
    To answer the question, I’ve been reading Halo and StarCraft books lately, and I just started reading a crossover fanfic between Pokemon Special and Harry Potter called Red Potter the other day.

  12. Spike the Dragon Knight! says:

    I time travel at a rate of 1 second per second!

  13. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Twilight Sparkle

    I MEANT TO DO THAT……….I THINK………..EXPLOSIONS!!!!!!!!!

  14. reynard61 says:

    “What have you all been reading lately?”

    Heidi, Spyri
    The Water Babies, Kingsley
    The Assassin, Coonts

    I’ve been super busy this Winter so I’ve only been able to read a few pages at a time per month. I’m hoping that I’ll make more progress during the coming Spring.

  15. Daikun says:

    I’m currently catching up on the Hunger Games trilogy. I have a few chapters done on Mockingjay. I’m really enjoying them.

  16. Boden says:

    The latest book I’ve read is “Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance” by Lois McMaster Bujold. It’s a sci-fi romance novel and I love it.

  17. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @Mr. Torgue
    Oh no, not my books! I just reorganized them again last night!

  18. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Twilight Sparkle

    F#CK YOUR BOOKS!!! BUY TORGUE!!
    - Mr. Torgue

  19. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @Mr. Torgue

    But Princess Celestia taught me pony trafficking is immoral and illegal!

  20. E says:

    Haha. Timeywimey stuff. I guess I shouldve seen that coming. Good thing they didnt fail that semester.

  21. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Twilight Sparkle

    I DON’T TRAFFIC IN PONIES! I TRAFFIC IN GUNS…..THAT MAKE EXPLOSIONS!!!!!
    - Mr. Torgue

  22. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @Mr. Torgue

    …are you related to Discord by any chance? :(
    Also, what is a gun? Is it similar to chocolate milk? I saw some chocolate milk explode once.

  23. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Twilight Sparkle

    AM I RELATED TO DISCORD!? THAT GUY’S A P@SSY COMPARED TO ME!!!!!!

    ALSO, A GUN IS SOMETHING YOU USE TO KILL SOMEBODY/SOMEPONY! IT”S NOT LIKE CHOCOLATE MILK, BUT I GOTTA ADMIT, CHOCOLATE MILK THAT EXPLODES IS AWESOME!!!!!
    - Mr. Torgue

  24. Hobbes says:

    @Boden: Nice! I keep reading and re-reading her books; haven’t yet been able to get any of my friends to try her books, but not giving up hope! XD

    As for what I’ve been reading recently… The “Greywalker” series, by Kat Richardson, and the October Daye books by Seanan McGuire come to mind first.

  25. Hobbes says:

    Also, just how wrong is it if one of my first thoughts was, “Holy crap, you people were wearing those for nine months?!”
    XD

  26. Oarboar says:

    Woo hoo! Welcome back!

  27. FreeFlier says:

    The problem is that Myra doesn’t have any pockey to eat.

  28. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @FreeFlier

    Oh dear, have Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash been stealing all the pocky again? You know, the easiest way to keep them from doing that is to ask Fluttershy to store it for you until you want it. Those two refuse to prank her.
    Oh, and please don’t give any to Spike. I don’t need him getting a bunch of gifts again and growing all big and mean again and scaring Rarity and ohnoI’mlateformynextmeetinggottagobye!

  29. Mr. Torgue says:

    @Twilight Sparkle

    Oh, that’s okay……CAUSE I GOT EXPLOSIONS FOR SPIKE FOR HIS BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!
    - Mr. Torgue

  30. UP says:

    Thankfully, I never delete good webcomics despite being on lengthy hiatuses in my bookmark folder :D Cant wait for more Enjuhneer!

  31. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @UP

    Yeah, some webcomics it’s really hard to give up on, even if they become REALLY TARDY!

  32. UP says:

    @Twilight Sparkle /)
    Evil Diva is coming soon yay. Only other webcomic im eagerly waiting to come back is The Meek.

  33. Twilight Sparkle says:

    @UP (\

    I’m not familiar with those two. Just looked them up, they look interesting. Guess I’ll have to check them out.
    Ugh, as if I didn’t have enough trouble finding room in my schedule for everything. I don’t even know when I’m going to find the time to do up my schedule for next month!
    Gotta go, I’ve got dinner with the Apple family in ten minutes and I’m going to be late! :(

  34. N says:

    On the topic of webcomics that I wish would update again, City of Reality hasn’t updated in close to a year except for one noncomic announcement in December and Venus Envy has updated twice since March of 2010. Pokemon-X sometimes goes ages without updates and other times updates several times a week for a few weeks before going back to no updates.

  35. Ramani-Rayne says:

    Just finished Wrath of Fate by “Captain” Robert Brown. Before that, Good Omens and American Gods, both of which are fantastic! I especially loved Good Omens as an audiobook, and listened through it twice as I finished up a big project for class. :)

  36. Soopergrape says:

    You really must listen to Enders Game in audiobook. I know the movie is out and has tainted the story by now, but the difference is amazing. I tend to make everyone sound the same in MY head. (Don’t know how the sound system is yours works.)
