As promised I'll tell you now the great news and new information about the "Web-Sondermann" Contest"!
(ﾉ*≧▽≦)ﾉ First things first: YAY! TEN got into the 10 best visited entries and thus got to the second round in the contest! (there are three in total Q_Q#)
This is all thanks to YOU! Thank you all very much for your visits in the first round!
The second round goes like this:
All the entries had to upload a 20 - 30 pages long extract to a German webcomic site called MyComics.de - they're partners with the whole Sondermann-thing, so...
Anyways, they made a page for the contest - I threw it into the google translator and it turns out translated okay-ish: http://bit.ly/NflxiO
Now on that page there are all the 10 extracts of the contestants that got into the second round and next to every extract there's a big orange vote-button. Now here's where it's getting - imho unnessecarily - complicated: you need to be logged in to vote. Which means you have to sign up.
It's not that hard though and it's free of course. You just need to put in a nickname and your email-adress. Then you get the usual registration mail with a validation-link and your password. Nothing out of the ordinary.
After you logged in you can vote for your favourite. =)
You can VOTE ONCE EVERY WEEK. (◕‿◕✿) So it'll make sense to use that if you want to support your favourite.
Despite this voting system being a bit complicated for all of you I would be really really happy if you take those 2-3 minutes to register and vote for TEN - but of course I do not force anyone to help out. (◕‿◕✿)
So then! *w*ﾉ HAPPY VOTING!
After a few of you wonderful people asked I figured I should add some information here. It seems after logging into mycomics it's kind of hard to get back to the voting site. But you should be able to bypass that problem if you log into mycomics.de and (without closing the logged in mycomics-site) just klick in the link I posted up there again. That should open the voting-site with you logged in, because the second browser window should remember you being logged into the mycomics site in general.
(^///^) I hope that helps!
... or not.
I just tried logging in to mycomics and opening the link. But okay, you can still just open the link I posted and log in via the log-in panel to the right. You will stay on the voting-site even after logged in then. =)
I absolutely love how Dez sleeps on the couch. Looks like he sort of died in pillow heaven. <3
That bed looks like heaven to sleep in OuO
This page update is so cute! Also, congratz on getting in the top 10 in round 2!!! XD If you get to the next round, I'll try and see about drawing some chibi fan art of them but I'm not sure how good it'll turn out since I... Kinda suck at drawing guys. XP
Lmao Dez the way you sleep is epic XD
Congrats! 8D Hope the next round goes well >w<
LOL Dez XD Looks like he just passed out on the couch as soon as his clothes were off. Plop! lol Goof
This page,it's so funny and adorable and the same time :3
Took me a hot minute to figure out how to get back to the voting site after logging in, but now we're all good ^_^
i will have to go and give mah vote yay!
haha:D The way Dez is sleeping is so cute:D He's to big for the couch!
and.. he's pretending he saw nothing until Kae gets better, huh?
Damn that was more difficult than it should have been, almost made me give up there! Guess about a year or so of german in school over a decade ago isn't much help... But yay it's done! :D Cast in my vote!
Now as for the page... D'aaww at Inori givin Kae his bed. Though I bet to Kae that sofa is looking a lot more comfortable right now... ;)
dec looks like he's trying to recite shakespeare in his sleep ;3; so cute!
Congratulations on your success in the contest. I wish TEN makes it through the second round. I will keep on voting for the next few weeks.
On another note. I am curious as to why didnt Dez ask him about the similar tatoos. I know he propably didnt wanna disturb a sick person but isnt his past a quite important matter?
Part of me wishes that Kae will invite him to the bed in order for him to be more ... comfortable. I kinda feel sorry for him being all squished up.
lol Dez sleeps exactly the way I do on any couch >8D
Hello there! I have been an avid reader of your comic for about a year and your two characters and story have charmed me! :3
I registered and logged into the website and saw that your comic is one of the top ones on mycomics.de and I found the page with your comic on it but am unsure of where to vote; I had google translator help me since I don't understand German. I rated your comic 5 stars but am unsure if that counts as voting. Please help. :3
I shall make a bookmark at the top of my page so that I remember to vote ^^ I tried to vote last time every time I saw 10 in my SmackJeeves list 8D
Good luck to you! I would love to see this comic win soooo much. <3
the last panel looks really uncomfortable.
Fuuuu~ this page gives off such a warm feeling!! From both sides <3
Voted :) make sure to remind me in a week to vote again!
Haha, thank you! (⌒▽⌒)☆
Some things just never change. He always slept like that (there's a panel with him on a couch sleeping in this suffocating position in the prequel. X3 I wanted to do that again. The only time when he's not sleeping on his tummy is when he's sharing his bed with Kae. (・｀ω´・)
I kind of let him sleep in that position in the first place because of his cat genes. X3 And how my cats usually slept when there was no place to roll into a fluffy neko-cushion. *lol*
So many pillows... (●´∀｀●)
Thank you very much! (*w*)
Wai, I'm looking forward to chibis by you! - Even though I can't say you'll start on them. XD ahahaha. (^///^) I'd already be happy with getting to the next round.
X'D haha, it is, isn't it?
A friend told me yesterday that it was possible without suffocating. I don't believe her.
(#^^#) Thank you!
I guess he kind of did that. *lol* Hmm... he might have showered in between.
(*^▽^*) Thank you!
Wuah. That system is evil, isn't it. But if you just open the link I posted and log in via the log-in panel to the right. You will stay on the voting-site even after logged in then. =)
Also thank you very much for voting!!
(*≧▽≦) Thank you!~ <3
That couch never really was intended to sleep on. òwo hurr hurr hurr.
and ... you're absolutely right. (^^) I was hoping it's kind of... understandable.
(;A;) nuu. Didn't you use the english google-translator link?
But anyway! (´ω｀★) Thank you very much!!
The couch isn't really looking more comfortable - though alluring. But the prominent thought is that it's really uncomfortable for Dez and that it's his fault. XD
He is? *laugh*
Thank you very much!! ∩( ・ω・)∩ <3
Well you just kind of said it. Dez' priority right now is getting Kae healthy again. He's not really doing it consciously but keeping the stress, that asking him about the tattoo would cause, is part of that.
(Plus I think men aren't usually the "let's talk about it. tell me what you think" - type anyway. I'm trying to not have them act like girls.)
And you didn't suffocate? (\(°A°)/) *lol*
Hi! And thank you for your praise and trying to vote for me! ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ
The stars are not a vote though. Getting to the voting page when you don't understand German is kind of tricky after logging in BUT if you just open the link I posted and log in via the log-in panel to the right. You will stay on the voting-site even after logged in then. =)
With Kae sitting up in bed? Why is that?
（ ´∀｀） <3
Thank you very much! *w* I will do that!
@Soen Kai: Oh I did and it was very useful for the first page.. My problem was only that I couldn't stay logged in using the translator for some reason and that's just crazy but it kept logging off... So in the end I had to find my way back to the voting site on my own. But I made it and now that I've gotten some rest I can also think of it as a kind of linguistic adventure down memory lane... Learned some new words like 'wählen' too, very useful! ;)
And yeah 'alluring' is probably a better word for it. Though I highly doubt sleeping in those arms would be in any way uncomfortable...<3
Since some people might still be having trouble:
Click the provided link. Log in.
Click "Sondermann 2012" under "Comic Events" on the right side of your profile screen.
Scroll slightly down the page and click "Web-Sondermann 2012" in the main body of text - TADA, you're on the voting page again!
Vote for TEN!
Count me in !! << going to try the voting thing and hopefully I'll remember to do it weekly :P
So is it the big orangy box that has "log in" ??? I mean where I can vote?????
It's so hard for me coz it's not in English :S
Though I already clicked on it !!!
Yuppieeeeeeeeee ehehehehe~ !!
I followed your steps and then the login box changed into "Wählen" <<< Though I don't know what that means but I clicked it and it says "Danke!" now (similar to thanks) so YES !!
I think I made it through the voting thing
:D GO TEN GO ^.^
Complicated, kinda fuzzled and busy sorry TTuTT
but I do wish you luck. And I'm telling another friend who's into JU to see if she'd vote for ya. She doesn't comment here though, since she has no SJ. XD
Also last panel=lol his "fever" is acting up XDDD
Yes, that's what it did with me when I tried to do the steps I wrote down for you. D= stupid page hrnsgrml.
Mh~ you're right, Dez' arms couldn't be unconfortable in any position.
Aye #°w°# "Wählen" is "to vote" (or to "choose") so yes! You did it! ^0^# Thank you!
=D Thank you for that explanation!
It's okay <3
Oh by the way I reopened the guest comments again. =) So if she wants she can comment again. :)
Ok, I think I managed to vote. At least the text in that orange button changed to "Danke" :D
I'll sure remember to vote again in a week when the next page is up. Congratulations for making such a beautiful comic, I hope you win this contest, you deserve it
I understand! i shall go to the voting site and vote for i am brainwashed by your words... and your comic. @__@
Amazing storyline and amazing drawings. Is there a way to have a paper version of it? :)
10 posted on the 10th.
Dez has the bestest most attractive sleeping position EVER.
Oh my gosh D:
Kae is SOOOOO CUTE!
And Dez is so jump-able~!
Occasionally I also sleep in strange positions! Even when he's eating a sandwich, Inori is beautiful. Oh boy...
Btw, I'm trying to vote, but I can't get on the page. I'll continue to try!
Thank you very much for your beautiful work.
@KermitsGirl: Thank you so much!! I was in the wrong place and your directions were a sign sent from heaven!! x3 Thank you!!
@DaShou: lol I think it looks more like he slapped his face to the pillow and passed out. XD
voted. Hope I don't forget to vote every week o 3o;
Dat leg :3
I love that subtle spacey background. =D
I LOVE THE WAY DEZ SLEEPS LOL
@DaShou: As someone who tends to sleep on their stomach a lot, I'll tell you that it's really bad for your back and neck, especially if the pillow is that poofy. :c
