Superhero Girl 019
So guess what! Skeptical Guy? Not a supervillain, not Superhero Girl's Archnemesis. Just a jerk skeptical guy, unwilling to take Superhero Girl's word that she is indeed a bonafide superhero. Sadly, you meet a lot of people like Skeptical Guy when you're pursuing, well, anything of worth. Like, y'know, say you want to be an artist! (Well, more a storyteller, but art's part of the stories you want to tell.) Boy howdy, will you meet a LOT of people along that professional road who are only happy to "constructively critique" everything you draw or write or scribble on a page or whatever, and NOT BELIEVE you when you say you want to be a certain kind of writer/artist/whatever and ACT OFFENDED if you don't believe their non-belief in your abilities, and that can be pretty horrible. But eventually you realize, hey, those people? They aren't supervillains standing in the way of what you want (okay, some are, but most aren't), they're just annoying Skeptical Guys, and you would totally do something non-heroic to them if you weren't ... completely exhausted ... from working an all-nighterzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Anyway. Art college can suck it. Yeah.
