Day 3, Page 40 (The End)

June 5, 2016 Characters: ,

This is the final page. I planned for the story to be open ended not knowing at the time if I’d want to continue. I’m glad I could share these idiots with people. If you have any questions I might answer them since I’m officially putting the story to bed.

I still have to create bonus material and edit content for print. I might also finish a few Ask A Character strips I neglected. When book 3 is ready to order I’ll make a new post. You can keep an eye out here, on Tumblr or sign up for the mailing list I created specifically for this (you won’t receive emails about anything else):

Mailing List Sign-up

Continued Support

All of my money goes towards moving my homestead off-grid. A portion of net profit will go to Nena for her alt text which she’ll probably spend on alcohol. If you want to show appreciation then one of these things would be the most significant:

• BUY THE PRINT BOOKS
The books have sexy extras and a few short, dumb strips. There will be no reprints so once I run out they’re gone forever. If you don’t already have the first two chapters you probably want to wait until chapter 3 comes out so you can save on shipping by buying the trilogy all at once. Sign up for the mailing list above and I’ll ping you when they’re available.

The charm prices have been greatly reduced. Every book order will receive a random free charm until they’re all gone. A few lucky people will get a charm on clear acrylic or wood instead of black acrylic.

Please note that orders won’t ship until the end of June because I’m out of town.

• FOLLOW ME TO MY NEXT PROJECT
My friend and I are developing a haunted house virtual pet for mobile platforms. I don’t want to reveal details yet so I’ll just assure you it’s really cute and depraved. If that sounds interesting then keep an eye on us. I hope to make a number of strange little digital curiosities in the future.

• THROW YOUR MONEY IN A PIT
If you don’t want any shit and just appreciate this train wreck narrated by Nena I guess you could donate. For every dollar you send Nena will whisper a word to a cat. If you send enough dollars, some very lucky cat is going to hear the entirety of Boned whispered at them.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me in any way whether it was to leave a comment, link to the site, translate or just read this. I appreciate everything! (ˊᗜˋ )੭

  • Nena

    FINALLY IM DONE

  • PuddingCup

    Nuuuuu I don’t want it to end! D:

    • Sorry I cannot continue! Imagine that whatever you wanted to happen, happened.

  • Aww, it’s finished. What a sweet and great end. I like endings like this, but same time it’s bittersweet, because of that End means no more.
    I will like to imagine that Sil will be back in town for a visit some day, and will look up Mace again.

    Thank you so much for this great story Alice. I’m one who hasn’t gotten any books yet (damn finances), so will order all three together (international shipping) and hope there’s enough left of book 1&2.

    • I’m confident there will be enough books remaining when the third one drops. Thank you for all your comments, I’ve enjoyed reading them! (╹◡╹)

  • InTheLittleMe

    But but what about but but QAQ it can’t end like this! *blubbers to the corner*

    • All things must come to an end. (´ㅂ`)

      • InTheLittleMe

        Yes yes.. Sadly yes they must come to an end… *sighss* now i gotta figure out what to do on my sundays… (Probably study and do homework but naaahh who does that anywayss…… Ohdearlordimintrouble)

  • <333 Enjoyed this quirky comic so much and will miss seeing it popping up on my feed. Congratulations for finishing a project of such a large scope and good luck, excitement and success for your next endeavours!!

    • Thank you for all your comments and support! (♥‿♥)

  • Sabrina Vögeli

    There never was an online comic that touched my heart more than this one. The ending came so sudden, It caught me totally offhand. I will miss it so hard and there is definitely a hole left in my heart which nothing can fill up. The end is not really a happy end but also not a bad end and thats why I absolutely cant deal with it properly. Im sobbing so hard right now. I definitely will get the whole comic now as soon as the third chapter is available. Thank you so much for this outstanding masterpiece!

    • I’m so humbled by what you’ve said and don’t really have an adequate response. I didn’t think I would touch anyone like this. I’m sorry for the abrupt ending, there was a chance I’d continue the adventure with a new arc but many reasons caused that to be impossible. (-‿-) Thank you very much!

  • NobleHam

    Just a thought, but have you considered making some SFW prints of the books? I have a lot of straight friends I think would really love the story, but might be a little squeamish about dicks and whatnot.

    • Haha, I considered making a “safe” version for my poor mother to read but realized I’d be censoring almost the entire story. I could easily remove just the graphic scenes if there’s a market for that. Maybe a really cheap PDF would work?

  • Angry Angel

    I read “The End” and was like, what? No. Like. No. I was seriously protesting on the inside. I adore this story, and although I kind of saw this coming, because I wasn’t sure how Mace and Sil would even continue to see each other, I really didn’t want it to happen. Regardless, this has been a fantastic story, thank you so much. I find the ending bittersweet, and real.

    Still not happy it’s over.

    Sigh.

    • Aw sorry! They would have definitely met up in the sequel if it makes you feel better. ◎ܫ◎

  • Kate G

    Awwwww, I’m sorry that it’s the end. *sniff* Now I have to imagine the rest. (Sigh, I know, I have to use my brain. But, what about the fun alt-text! I’m so going to miss that….)

    • Just imagine Nena alt-texting everything that happens in your life from here on out. Thanks for all your comments!

  • Amanda Victoria Williams

    Thank you for making such a fun and wonderful comic! I admit, i’m going to miss Boned, but I am just happy you chose to share this story with us. Do you think you might make any other comics in the future? Thank you again, and good luck with Ghoul House!

    • Thank you! I have another crappy one that’s almost finished and I’m writing a couple of novels but I think I’m done with comics. The most I’d do is something short for Filthy Figments or an anthology.

  • Palii

    Are you currently writing and more comics, or do you plan to?

  • Cat’s Rainbow

    Thanks for so cute story, it was awesome!

  • Lightningscar98

    but but I wanna see them get back together and go on another drug filled illegal gay buttsex adventure!! now i’m bummed….

  • Cricket

    I mean it is bittersweet that its ended,despite my initial thoughts on the comic I ended up really enjoying the story, because there is no more. However, I’m glad you ended it instead of dragging out the story to the point where it is no longer enjoyable and you ended it at a good place. Best of luck with your future projects!

  • Dee Sama

    IVE read many but yours is a masterpiece. I love the style the humour the flow even the ending. Thank you for a wonderful time

  • Haha, omg *sits here smiling at the screen like an idiot*. I gotta say, that was a really cute and beautiful way to wrap up this hilarious and sexy adventure! An ‘open ending’ is so perfect for these two; and of course in my future interpretation they will meet each other again to pick up where they left off, hehe <3

    This comic truly is a gem; I'm grateful to you for sharing it with us, Alice ♥. You're amazing both as an artist and storyteller. I loved every entertaining moment of the past 4 years, and I learned quite a few new things too! haha ;) Nena darling, your alt-texts and witty banter gave me life ♥ A+, 5-star, sheer works of art – a 'peasant' like me remains unworthy *lol*.

    Here's hoping I get the pleasure to enjoy more of your work in the future. Bless you guys, and much success to you both ;)

  • Aaawwww… :hug: I’m sorry I missed the ending. I switched browsers and … I’m sorry.

    I didn’t think it was going to end like this, but it’s a nice slice of life ending.

    I was actually going to say something else until I saw the words ‘The End’.

    I was going to say I know that building. You saw it over on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn didn’t you?… but I don’t care so much about that now. I feel like crying that it’s all over even though I was gone for so long.

    Take care. :)

  • Mohrovia

    Awesomely executed. You’re a bloody master…mistress…[insert preferred gender-neutral noun]. Thank you & Nena!!!

  • Momo Peach

    I found it. I read it. It ended. Now I has a sad. Wonderful art work, humor, dialogue! I aspire to this level of wittiness. <3

  • Read this all in one sitting after someone on Tumblr recommended it to me. While the art was lovely and I loved the full page and double page painting spreads, the writing was fantastic and my favorite aspect of the story. Witty, hilarious, slightly dry–everything I love in humor. Great storytelling, great characters. A wonderful read with a slightly bittersweet, but realistic ending. Well, besides the talking (??) birds. Great work!

    • Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed it!
