Reality & Fantasy
God this story is painful. It reminds me of all my screw ups is life. But i see now what is happening, Ellis is a fantasy brought to life, while Tim is miserable brutal reality brought to the fore. I pray that can find a middle ground, and not lose this chance to be together finally.
Okay, I'm going to sound like a total Cpt Obvious here, but Ellis feels guilty. I think that the reason why she continually made up the different scenarios of her and Tim, all happy, is because she felt guilty for slapping him that night.
Again, this may have also formed because of her feelings for Tim, and anger that he didn't date her or anything, and how much she wanted to be with him.
Again, I think I'm being a captain obvious here, but if not, then yay. ._. as always though Ben, very awesome pages, emotions, and i just feel a little empty after reading some of the pages. That's quite a good thing you know. Not many other comics *I really can't think of any* on SJ are of this caliber. You AND the awesome writer Gibson Twist *didn't forget you man. XD*
Retribution and Reminiscence
Gods, your stories are good, guys. Gibson, I've read your other work, and I have to say, your writing evokes deep emotion. Ben, your art is inspiring to say the least. It brings to life the words written. Together, you bring the story. Together, you breathe it life. I appreciate all your hard work, both of you. Keep on bringing those emotions. Keep on bringing the pain and pleasure of imagination.
