With apologies to the Rolling Stones...

It's Only Girls in Snow
To the tune of 'It's Only Rock 'n Roll'

If I could fill this board with fanart
Or write a handful of filks
Would it bring you fans back?
Would it make you fans laugh?
Would you say this strip's been milked?
Way too mil~ked

If I could write on
If I could find Con
Or post here ev'ry day
Would it be enough for you fickle fans
If that snow would melt away
Melt to gre~ey

I said I know it's only girls in snow but I like it
I know it's only girls in snow but I like it, like it, yes I do!
Well, I like it...
I said can't you see this fanboy has been so ronery

If Fred would write some jokes in this strip
Gamer jokes back on the page
Would you get a kick from a moe schtick
If ev'ry girl looked the same?
Just the sa~ame!

If I could ask Kyubey for one wish
I'd ask for two strips in a week
Then make that meido magic
And just a little tragic
Then have her sit next to me
Next to me~e!

I said I know it's only girls in snow but I like it!
I know it's only girls in snow but I like it, like it, yes I do!
Well, I like it...
Can't you see that this fanboy has been so ronery?

And do you think that you're the only fans online?
I bet you think that you're the only comic online!

I said I know it's only girls in snow but I like it...

...and I hope you liked the filk. Though I've wanted to do 'It's Only Girls in Snow' for a long time, I wrote this in a single burst of energy just this morning, so forgive any rough spots. ^_^
Fanworks 2012

(Off of Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway), apologies to Billy Joel.)

I've seen the life go out of SD
I saw the filkers all laid low
And all the artists stuck in just one thread.
The tributes slowly died
as Freddy's output slowed.

We used to live in SD proper
with ideas coming out our ears.
But then some folks complained
and made the system change
but we can't stay that strong in here

I've seen the comments stop in SD
I saw the traffic charts stand still
If this were my site, I'd be used to it
I don't get visitors.
I prob'ly never will.

They kept on going out in Central
They never paid us any mind.
But even in SD
They used to come and see.
Feels like they left fanworks behind.

I've seen the life go out of SD.
I watched the post counts finally fall.
If we were rampant like the kudzu vines,
our soil's been washed out.
We've never been so small.

I hear that Shoka's now a lawyer
and smurd writes ads for P&G.
And Con and Rapierman
will do the best they can
But it's an audience we need.

You know the golden age of SD?
That wasn't all that long ago.
Before the author had a family.
Before the comic press bought Megatokyo.
There are a few still making fanworks
with pictures, fictions and end rhymes,
But no-one's watching us
and no-one's stopping us
I guess that means we're still alive...
