Great Food for a Great Cause 04/23/2011

by Joe

Sorry it’s late, everyone! I went to a fundraiser at a local school for the victims of the big quake. It was very heartening to see kids of all ages enthusiastically spending their Saturday at school for a very worthy cause. :D

It was also a pot-luck lunch and with dozens of families from around the world attending, it was a international smorgasbord. Food brings the world together!

Also, I wasn’t expecting so much feedback for Against the Machine in the forums! Thanks! I have the weekend to advance the story :D

Enjoy Scene 14 – “A Rusty Heart”!

Please continue to vote! :D The Mystery Mutant’s sketch is still the incentive! Thank you for voting everyday!

Have a great rest of the weekend and Easter! :D

You can see that Rusty actually care because he lie. showing he did not to hurt the kid to much.

Hi, new member here and… First post, yay!

DramaNoMore on April 23, 2011 at 6:56 pm

wow, brought a tear to my eye… he isnt just a heartless bastard, he is just afraid…and a bastard…

Curator on April 23, 2011 at 7:03 pm

frida on April 23, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Awww… Warm and fuzzy moment.

Willy on April 24, 2011 at 2:16 am

still hate him a little, but hes good…. maybe…

dragoduval on April 24, 2011 at 2:34 am

I wont lie Joe, you almost made me cry with this scene. It was very sad, but it developed the characters very well. The amount of kindness i saw in Rusty almost shocked me. You’re a great story teller.

Enzeru Kagai on April 24, 2011 at 2:38 am

now that he’s redeemed himself (sort of), he can rest in piece…or should I say…rest in pieces.

Theory: The kid is a vampire and Jan is a machine. Discuss.

Infinite Virginity on April 24, 2011 at 6:27 am

Well rusty certainly upped his game now that jan is gone I hope he can show more compassion for everyone in the group(sorry can’t remember their names).

Zerotech68 on April 24, 2011 at 9:03 am

Awesome i just read it how do you get these stories are you like god or something
are like a super hero you heal people with stories Go Joe
we all know you are totally cool do you draw the the people and cars and buildings and roads and stuff next scene make it good

niko on April 24, 2011 at 10:33 am

Amazing, a beautiful turn around for a character who became very hated, who would’ve guessed it would be down to these few numbers, Joe you always know how to make great plot twists

Also, food does connect many different people, we may not look the same or share the same culture but we can always gather around the table and endulge ourselves in company over food

SpiritOfAdventure on April 24, 2011 at 11:36 am

You, sir Joe, have mastered the art of Jackass Compassion. It’s really weird to look at the previous scenes.
I laughed out loud when I saw the “scared-big-eyes” look on Rusty’s face.

Chaotick on April 24, 2011 at 1:45 pm


Curse you Other-joe with your things and the stuff and the words and the BELGIUM. Curse you to HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELL.


Greybane is still awesome.

Delta Pangaea on April 24, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Greybane made a point when he called Rusty a coward, since he said he always looking out for himself. Yet when he sees how much it hurts the two others he knows that he has to step up and see that people who work together survive and that maybe hero’s can exists too. Yet I feel bad for Nathan still since he is only a child but the world is cruel and don’t care if your young or old.

sykes on April 24, 2011 at 2:30 pm

I’d just like to say that I totally called it.

Aethrys on April 25, 2011 at 7:09 am
