One more bonus, dear readers, for Seven Years of Tock!
Here are five small moments, each crew member of the dear Bucket in their experience of the world – before they came together! These happen at varying times in their lives, and speak to the reasons they’ll end up where they are in the comic – which is yet to be seen, in full, but I hope you enjoy this glimpse in the meantime!
Thank you so much for your continuous support and enjoyment of this work. I’m so pleased to share Tock’s world with you and look forward to sharing even more adventures and stories of Faerie magic and Love ❤
A roar tore through her throat as Onna lunged at her opponent again, the battle rush blissfully in her veins. They clashed, axe against club, force by force trying to push each other down. Their teacher shouted, they broke apart, swinging back around to try again.
~ A “Tock the Gnome” fairy tale, of the Brogh – the badger-folk. ~
Extra Happy and Grateful Seven Years of Tock, everyone!
I’m very excited to share this with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your readership.
Fairy tales are obviously a big part of the story, inspiring Tock herself to go on her quest – and the further we get, the more we’re going to see versions of certain fairy tales (that we humans are familiar with) pop up in Tock’s world.
So here’s the first, as a special treat! Hope you all look forward to more of these as much as I do (and as for how they’re going to pop up? Shhhh not telling!).
Thank you again, dear readers. Tock’s journey would not have gotten this far without you.
~ Beauty and the Beast ~
Long ago there lived a fair maiden, with her father and two sisters, in a sett much farther down the shoreline than here. Her mother had vanished before her babes were even walking, leaving their father to raise the girls alone. Still, they brightened his life, and he worked hard at trade with the neighboring setts and other nearby peoples – in order to provide for them a good and prosperous life.
As it says on the tin – on August 30th, 2010, this project was officially launched and “Tock the Gnome” was born ❤
I am so very grateful to everyone who’s kept an eye on the comic and everything else related to Tock’s world – and as such, this month leading up to her ‘birthday’ will be filled with lots of bonus content! Stay tuned for more bonus art, bonus story snippets, a look back at what got this project started in the first place, and a special surprise on the 30th itself!
If there’s anything that you’re curious about or would like to see, please leave a comment or send me a note. Also, page 78 is well on its way and will certainly be part of the celebration. And in the meantime, lots of existing goodies are available already over on Patreon.
Thank you, always, for your support dear readers! I hope you look forward to what this August brings.

Look there’s Tock 😀
So, though, page 77. In the 7th month of this year, 2017. And very serendipitously, next month marks 7 years of “Tock the Gnome.”
(I do have a couple special things planned to celebrate, so stay tuned everyone!)
And as I said last page, sometime soon I will be posting a short written scene that shows what’s going in that big yurt there while our heroes wait. That will be available ONLY on Patreon, so make sure to check it out there and pledge if you want to see that (and other) bonus story content! Not to mention the oodles of bonus art and world-building material that’s already posted. Just saying :heart:
Thank you, always, for reading!
