The Little Things. Nicole would act as my editor by making sure I spelled stuff correctly. I would also do little mini comics of the strips.
In 2003, both of went to SDCC. During the con, there were a bunch of CBR meet-ups. One being a beach meeting/weenie roast.
During a moment away from the group, I faked that I noticed a mistake Nicole didn't catch in one of my comics.
What I had done was secretly work on a comic and pasted into one of my mini comics.
I then got down on one knee and asked her myself.
