Veronica: The first panel was a pretty bad experiment, it looks like a failed attempt at Silent Night, I just wanted it to look really dark without the pencil scratches.

Lucy is getting pretty brave right now.

I think it was “Starry Night” you meant, by Van Gogh. Silent Night is a Christmas carol.

Don’t feel bad for him!!!! He is a total jerk! I could say something nastier, but I don’t feel like this scene deserves it. Very sweet. If short-lived.

This is a very emotional and drama filled comic…but I love it and this page does a good job of showing the characters feelings in a subtle way (without the usual screaming and beatings).

Ok, girl, you should say it now.
And be prepared, for he will probably still say he wants Sandy at first.
Be brave.
>_< I feel idiot here hoping for the development of that!

Don’t worry, Taeshi, you don’t have to cut off your ear to make a good ‘Starty Night’

Beccccaaaaaaussse she would be naked if she took it off? :unsure:

actually if she really wanted to excite someone she would wear a bathing suit with her bow, then take off her bathing suit in front of mike. XD

The pets are really heavy sleepers. I wake up at the sound of a pin dropping. But they survive at the physical rustling of bedsheets? I’m jealous…Not really. Being a light-sleeper is great. :)

Don’t pull a Daisy, Lucy. No date-rape here, please.

The black panel… it speaks to me… there are entities inside wanting to get out and steal me… I see dead people…

Awwww. Lucy with all her pets sleeping around her is so cute!

And yup. There’s the one guy you need more than anything, sleeping over there, in the cold, on the floor.

I like the first panel, it looks like van Gogh’s Starry Night.

I know you said the first panel was a “bad experiment” but it REALLY connected to me somehow, like that describes what i feel when i look at or think of nothing, weirdly enough. idk. but i thought id share anyway
