When I told my brother about AuTalkz being featured on Asperger's 101, he said that I should remove the old political ones because they could be traced back to and might get the website in trouble.

Since I definitely don't want that, I'm going to be overhauling what I call "season 1" of AuTalkz (which has most of the political and satire issues).  That "season" will now be known as "Kairy's Rants".  So, the title of it will be changed so that it's completely different/separate from AuTalkz.

I'm also going to remove the numbers on the issues of "season 2" of AuTalkz for continuity (since the first dozen or so are going to be changed as a predecessor to AuTalkz and called something different).  That, and since they don't have a "to be continued" on them, there's really no reason to number them anyway.

This means I'll have a lot of work to do with the links; the first thing I'm going to do is change those satire/political strips to be independent of AuTalkz, since that's the most important.  If there's still an issue, I'll take them down completely.

So, just mentioning that because the changes will be worked on immediately.  It might be a two-day project or so (and tomorrow is an AuTalkz release day to boot), but it's an important one.

My name is Nicole, though you can also call me "Nikki" or "Kairy".
I'm an adult (according to the numbers, at least), and I have ASD (autism).

I don't need to be "cured", I'm not an idiot, and I'm not dangerous. I'm just another person that loves to draw, write, read (fanfiction and mystery fiction), play video games, and watch anime.

In fact, I'm pretty big on raising autism awareness. I've decided to dedicate my art to that, which is why I run the AuTalkz comic series weekly, and do at least one drawing every April for Autism Awareness Month.
I may not be good at public speaking, but I can talk through my drawing.

I've been drawing for over 10 years, now, and I'm completely self-taught except for about 1-2 months of college Photoshop class (which I nearly failed miserably, to be perfectly honest).

Nice to meet you!!

Thank you very much!

My original intent with my comic was actually to target people who didn't have autism to try and help them understand people who do.  But I also find joy in the fact that people with ASD feel they can relate to it.  ^^

your comics are being informational and adorable with the drawing style. My mom works with autistic children and as soon as i can i'll show her these i guess just has an inside look of what it's like and can give her more info :)

I dunno; I have a couple friends on the spectrum who are in relationships, and they're doing just fine (one of them is going out with someone who isn't on the spectrum, and the other two are both on the spectrum and going out).

As for me, I can't really see myself in a relationship unless it was purely an emotional one (welp, maybe with some hugs now and then).  My mind can't get past the whole "kissing" thing, let alone what comes after that.
