Nun FartsBetter in than out

So I found this today at a candy store & it cracked me up so much…The lady at the store thought I was laughing at the dumb name…I kinda was but I was also laughing because it reminded me of yamino's Sister Claire (for some reason the mental image of epic nuns farting had me crying tears of laughter).

Amazing. XD

After the long, long afternoon and the stretching night that follows, Mother Yolanda invites Jackson into the little cavern she calls an office for tea.  The sky’s moonless in her window but full of hot, staring stars to compensate.

I decided to start off the color palette meme with my favorite character (which is a big deal, coming from a cast of almost-my-favorites) from the amazing, colorful, occasionally hilarious and occasionally heartbreaking webcomic Sister Claire! This is Sister Oscar in all her gorgeous, sparkly glory. I’m sure it’s some sort of sin to have her hair brazenly dancing in the breeze, but she doesn’t seem to mind, so why should we?
Thanks for the inspiration, Yamino!

Just curious, what kind of time period is this in? It's looking kind of medieval, but then there's pregnancy tests, but Claire doesn't realize what a motorcycle is. What kind of tech level is there?

Hi darlin’,

Sister Claire is set in a recently post-war fantasy world.  Technology varies widely from place to place, its presence and power largely determined by how badly any given region was hit during the war.  There are pregnancy tests, giant robots, motorized vehicles, microphones, karaoke machines, telephones… and indoor plumbing.  Remember how Gabrielle met Claire?

Claire’s not that familiar with lots of tech because she’s grown up in an abbey.  She’s probably heard and read about lots of stuff she’s never seen before (like, say, Gabby’s motorcycle).

Hope this helps!

She’s one of my favourites but I’m starting to dread her appearances

There’s this comic I read, called Sister Claire! Recently it got an extra author and the writing gained levels, and major backstory for the nuns (it’s a comic about nuns) and one of the nuns is transgender, which is great.

What isn’t great is the comments everytime said nun, Sister Oscar who is a lovely lady who sparkles and is based off the character from Rose of Versailles, appears. They’re full of ‘he’s more of a man than us!’ ‘is he Claire’s real daddy?’ and ‘CAN WE PLEASE HAVE SOME CLEAR EVIDENCE ABOUT WHAT GENITALIA OSCAR HAS’ which is giving me the flying heebies.

If you don’t know what something is, you ask. That’s a good life policy. Or googling it. That’s also a really great policy. Some concepts can be kind of surprising if you’re a lil’ sheltered. I once met a man (who actually was a total creep but that’s unrelated) who actually believed bisexual meant full on hermaphrodite. I explained, then he sent me a dick pic, and then I had to tell him if he ever spoke to me again I’d report him to every single moderator that ever existed but I’m pretty sure that had nothing to do with the first part but I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t include the whole story.

Anyway. Sister Oscar’s nethers. Why on earth would you need to know that? In what way is your viewing experience enhanced by knowing what’s going on under that habit? Do you lay up at night and think about trans people and go ‘GOD, I wish I knew if there was a weiner or a vulva down there god this is just burning me up WHY’ because it’s kind of unnerving. I’m not telling you what’s going on with me except for there’s a holy light and sometimes lepers are cured.

And I saw the mildest ‘please stop misgendering her’ from one of the authors met with ‘stop with the hostility it interferes with our LEARNING’ which is apparently super super fragile. 

I totally get the argument that someone being confused getting greeted with a wall of swears can be somewhat detrimental, but if just being told ‘hey, stop’ clearly is enough to set you off I don’t think you’re trying.

Oh yeah, I forgot to say! The nuns all have superpowers and there’s a mecha. And one nun is pregnant with the messiah. You know, basic stuff.

While Elena (Yamino) and I can’t relate to this issue as personally as you do, dear reader, we do also feel a sense of trepidation posting pages or stories that feature Oscar prominently because of the inevitable ignorance (and stupidity, and foulness) that floods the comments. We want Oscar to make people happy, especially those of you who find her relatable in some way — and we want to do right by her, if that makes sense. We know Oscar shoulders a good deal of representation in the comic and we want to emphasize that without it also being the only thing her character is there for: she’s transgender but she’s not in the cast to be the token transgender person, the end. She’s so important for so many reasons, for who she loves and what she fights for and what she does, and how she moves in the world we’ve made around her, and it is endlessly frustrating when someone in the comments ignores all that in favor of bugling, “LOL but does she have a weewee or a wawa?”

Still, Oscar’s a main character in our story, and we won’t let a little negativity reduce her to a stereotype or keep her from being seen. More than that, we will continue to keep a close eye on the comments and do our best to make them a safe space for our readers… we anticipate and will try to alleviate occasional instances of cluelessness, but slurs and transphobia will not be tolerated.

That’s a promise, from me and Elena and Oscar too.

We hope you keep reading.

I hope this is the right place to ask this, I was just wondering since you said you originally did not plan to explore romance in the comic, how the story was going to go originally (at least for the things that have already happened). It seems like such a big thing now that I can't imagine the story without it. I mean, I imagine the story's changed a lot over time.

Originally the story was, honestly, not very well planned out. I had vague ideas, but this comic originally a school project and then something I continued for fun, not my livelihood, so I made up a lot of things as I went, and I’m afraid it shows.

Regarding relationships, I wanted to hint at some but never make anything of them firmly canon. I think this was due to a fear of making permanent decisions affecting the story, as well as not wanting to break too many people’s headcanons about the characters. I also didn’t want romance to be a main theme because I worried it would detract too much from everything else going on.

Having Ash on board, she’s helped me see things from a different perspective, and although at first I was very stubborn (ok, sometimes I still am…) about changing things, I really think her input and insistence on making certain things canon (Jackson/Olga, Oscar being trans, etc) has benefitted the comic a lot. Rather than narrowing things down, I think it’s attracted an audience who doesn’t get much representation elsewhere.
Not to mention all the Missing Moments that help tie up so many loose ends about the characters’ pasts! Explaining why Claire has no friends at the abbey, how Marguerite changed, the Shards, reworking the reason behind the War, and generally fleshing out a lot of the characters- while these are things we discussed together, they’re almost all Ash’s ideas.

The story has most definitely changed in tone, because it started out with a completely different goal. I was trying to write something silly and funny, but despite myself I kept adding hints of a darker, more serious story. Now with Ash on board, that story is coming front and center rather than being a vague backdrop, and I think it’s all for the better. I only wish she had been on board from day one.

Catharine jerks to her feet.  Oscar’s blood drips from her fingers and the air around her takes on a glassy, blistered sheen, the same way heat dances over a dry field in summer.
