Hello and welcome! I’m River - also known as Riverfox, River Babble, or TheRIU across the interwebs. And this is the patreon hub for my MLP comic, “I Am Not An Alicorn!”


For Tumblr IANAA, CLICK HERE
For Webtoons IANAA, CLICK HERE

IANAA is set in a slightly modified but close-to-canon universe of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and stars a cast of my original characters. The main character is Salespitch, a TOTALLY normal traveling salespony who just happens to have a super-rare genetic abnormality that caused him to be born looking like an alicorn. The story is a mix of comedy and slice-of-life as Sales and his friends/family answer reader-submitted questions about his condition and daily life for his “vlog.” It’s mostly business as usual, except for the cultists, and being accused of impersonating royalty, and just what IS Pitch Black’s mystery job with the weird hours and the occasional worrying bruises? TUNE IN TO FIND OUT

While this whole thing started a few years ago (and continues) as an Ask Blog on Tumblr, I have recently also been posting on Line Webtoon, and the positive responses have really encouraged me that this story is worth finishing! But it's still just a hobby that I do on my own time, and, as we all know, the modern world finds it hard to justify anything that takes time and effort if it doesn’t earn money. =P 

Never fear, I hope to continue telling this story for as long as there are readers who enjoy it! But by supporting me through Patreon, YOU can be a HUGE help in encouraging me, increasing how often I can update, and making more time to interact with my readers! And did I mention COOL REWARDS? Such as:

- Exclusive access to my Discord!
- Early access to new pages!
- Free drawing commissions!
- CAMEOS???

“So how’s this work?”
This is a per-creation Patreon! You would donate a certain amount of money per page that I finish and post. You can also cap your donations so you don’t get billed for more than a certain number of posts per month!

“How many posts do you make a month?”
Right now, I’m trying for a minimum of two Webtoons posts a month. These might look a little different on my Tumblr site since I post smaller pages individually there that I would combine on Webtoons, so we are going by the Webtoons number for safety. But if I get enough support, that may increase!

”I don’t have a lot of money... Can I still help?”
DEFINITELY! Even a dollar a month is fantastic and so, so appreciated! It means so much to me that you want to support my work! 

(And if you really can't do Patreon but would still like to support me in other ways, I am also open for commissions!)

And that’s the gist of things, my peeps! So if you wanna toss a dollar in my hat and get cool stuff in return, welcome aboard! And know that YOU ARE AWESOME!!!*

*You’re probably awesome anyway. The dollar thing just means you’re a little EXTRA awesome. :D
