Alex W. (202 posts)
Much like Han Solo, Alex W. was a stuck-up, scruffy-looking nerfherder before he met his awesome Rebel wife, Barbara, from whom he learned much about responsibility, courage, and kicking serious ass. (The similarities to Han Solo pretty much stop there.) A key part of his creative process is remembering to write down funny shit that she says.

Ian S. (33 posts)
Most of what Ian says is extemporaneous, don't hold it against him. If you see a man wandering in the snow and mumbling to himself, gesticulating with twitchy fervor, occasionally blinking and looking around before changing direction but not demeanor, that's probably Ian. It's part of his process.
