Brisbane Adams and Kimberly Taylor had been friends, rivals and potential love interests when they worked in the Minerva Theatre. Just as they were getting close to figuring each other out, the Minerva Theater shut down. As their friends scattered to the winds, Brisbane - now jobless and homeless - was left to fend for himself. The only person he could turn to was his friend, rival and potential love interest, Kimberly Taylor.

The two of them faced the world, both its victories and defeats, together... and cautiously waited to see who would be the one to make the first move - who would say it first...

You Say it First is the sequel to Unlike Minerva. You could start there if you're a completist. Or we've got a nice jumping-on point about halfway in, if you're in a hurry.

It ran from 2004 and concluded in 2013. We recommend starting at the beginning.

New Logo! And official linking buttons!

I'm proud of the job Isabel did on them.

And year in review! It's been a while since we've done one of those. In 2015, Namir Deiter ended its sixteen year run. Isabel started The NDU, which will be coming back in March. And we started Nicole and Derek, which brought Namir Deiter and You Say it First together, like we've been threatening to do for years. Year One of N&D set up the three conflicting factions that dominate the sophomore year of this high school. It's been a year of beginnings over here.

01.04.2016 - Terrence Marks:
Firstly, we've got our first piece of Nicole and Derek fanart! We're sorry about not posting it earlier, but it was hanging out on our card wreath for the holidays.
Please enjoy Nicole, by Alicelights.

Secondly, we're trying to decide what to do with The NDU.

Thirdly, we've got another week of Nicole & Derek Asks! We'll probably be running them between chapters. If you want to send questions in - addressed to individual characters or the entire cast - please do; let us know how you want to be credited if we use yours (like "Terrence asks, 'Avery, what boy do you like?'", or "Mr. Marks asks, 'Derek, what girl do you like?'")

12.12.2015 - Terrence Marks:
And holiday cards are sent out! Thank you to everybody who supported the comic and everybody sent us a card! You should be getting a card soon. We have sent out very nearly all the cards we made and thank you all for your participation.
11.18.2015 - Terrence Marks:
Starting next week, we'll be running Nicole and Derek Monday through Friday. The NDU is going on hiatus through the end of the year.

We've still got some holiday cards available! Sign up if you're interested!

11.15.2015 - Terrence Marks:
We're doing a holiday card exchange again!

How do you get one?
If you were a part of NamirDeiter.net this year and we have your address, you get a card.
If you ask for a card, we send you one. If you want to send us a card, we'd really appreciate it. Quantities are a bit limited, so the sooner you email us, the better.

Our address is:
Terrence and Isabel Marks
PO Box 2246
Glendora, CA 91740

Who's on the card?
The card features Nicole, Brisbane, Kimberly, Dennis and David (the twins, Nicole's older brothers). The inside features Nicole and Derek.

We'll probably be sending them out around the beginning of December.
