So this topic exists for the sole purpose of explaining how you found Dreamcatcher and started reading it. Pretty simple.
Mine's a pretty funny story. Ya see I have a friend with a werewolf character named... Luna. So when I voted for my favorite webcomic (Slightly Damned) and the name of the character who's picture was shown (you had to identify the correct name of the character in the picture for the vote to be eligable) and it was... a werewolf character named... Luna! So I clicked on it, planning to read the webcomic to tell my friend that he might need to find a new name (just to joke around) but when I read on in the comic I found out that the main character's name was Riza (the main character of my comic's name was and is Rika. She also similar to a half creature.) So I felt like I wasn't one to talk
And that's how I discovered Dreamcatcher. Also I've always had dreamcatcher's up in my room and I used to imagine that it was a portal when I was little, so it was like it was meant to be.
Also I think that this topic might need to be stickied (because it is an important topic for newbies XD)
I found Dream Catcher in a similar way. I was voting for pebble-version just to see the bonus blooper-reel comic. Luna popped up for the name identification, and for some reason, she caught my eye when none of the others had in previous times I'd voted. (maybe it was because I had a dream catcher as a kid and I never wanted to give it up.) I started reading, and in a way remembering because in several points I experienced Deja Vu, (Which has happened with a few other web comics, one of which I could recall quite a bit of before I even got to those parts...yeah...weird.... )
On the whole this is probably #2 on my favorite web comics list.

I saw an advert when I was logging into SmackJeeves. Not very exciting, LOL. XD At first I was just reading it while I waited for something to load, but I was soon hooked. I'd say it's one of my favourite comics now.

Hmm, how did I find DC...oh. Wait. Right.
Actually, as far as making it goes, this story/the characters are just something that kind of happened when I was growing up. Like, I'm pretty sure Luna's been around in one form or another (fun fact: most of DC's main cast were once fan characters for something or other. Cookies if you can figure out who came from where) since I was 11 or so. Riza probably appeared when I was 12-13, and Dae shortly after (the funny part about Dae is that I originally made him up as someone to put Riza in her place once in awhile, because she was getting too full of herself in my head. Yeah. That didn't last). Xan was actually the last one to be created. (Raus has been around for a long time too, actually; initially he was much meaner and significantly smarter. Now he's just an egotistical moron.) Originally these guys just all kind of ran around and wreaked havoc in my brain; it didn't occur to me to put them all in one comprehensive story until I was about 14. And then, the comic happened. Oddly enough, when I started drawing it, I didn't even have the first chapter totally written. In fact I barely followed the script I did have for that (You should see it; it's about 11 pages of written and rewritten scenes, most of which I didn't use anyway. Chapters since then are 2-3 pages.) However, by the time I actually finished the sketching for chapter 1, I had through 3 written and a lot more of the story figured out. Now I've got around 30 chapters written and the whole thing pretty well plotted out in my head. I hope you guys stick around; it's gonna be a long ride.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my "how DC came to be" speech XD I just haaddd to put my 2 cents in this topic.
XD Also, If there's one thing this topic is telling me, it's that my ads and such are apparently working. Which is good Now I know they're not a waste of time/money.
