Aaw, he got shy! 💜

I like the shadows on Jeriah's face as well as the rain and lightning effect on the page. =^.^= 💜

Haha yeah, he doesn't know how to go about any of this. Thanks!

Go on man, do it! Ask to see her again and then ask her to marry you! It ain't so hard. You already know she'd probably say yes.

Haha! I mean yeah well... perhaps invite her over for some dinner first? XD
9th Sep 2018, 2:37 AM
But, wouldn't that mean *sharing* his dinner?
9th Sep 2018, 11:02 AM
Alicia
I mean... you could invite her over for dinner, have her make all the food, then eat all of the food while she sits there and stares at you awkwardly.

...Uh... maybe skip the dinner part. X'D

Even though it's sad to seem him all depressed, it's kind of still refreshing to see him in a normal life situation given the past. Mixed feelings, nice page. Lol.

Thanks! Yeah he's got a lot of emotions to work out and he's all alone at his dead parents' house. :'D It's rough.

Awww Jeriaaah <33... I love that second to last panel! This is such a sweet scene!

So many crumpled up papers on the floor. So many times he's started to write and can't get the right words. :'D

Yuuuuus. Just say you love her and you’re perfect for each other! Simple and straight to the point. You’d better hurry, before Theodore snatches her up. Lol. ;)

Honestly, I think Theo is asexual. I saw a piece of fanart that doesn’t support the theory, but technically it’s not cannon. In the comic proper, I never saw him ever being sexually attracted to anyone, but it’s just a theory. :)

LOL Yeah Theodore isn't the type to snatch anybody up.

...But maybe if someone snatched HIM up... ;)

Just text her, J-dawg

LOL I can't even imagine how awkward Jeriah text messages would be.

Wait why have you guys not been together this whole time starting a beautiful little family??? XD

Yeah. There should be pups by now.

Seriously! X'D

Well, the epilogue isn't over yet though. >_>;

Poor Jeriah, that rainstorm is entirely the wrong weather for writing awkward letters to, but it's nice to see him getting some peace and quiet.

I'm quietly in awe of whatever forces managed to persuade Annabelle it was safe to let Jeriah out of her sight even for a few minutes, let alone a few months.
9th Sep 2018, 11:03 AM
Alicia
Haha yeah... He's got all that time to himself, but he's caught up in everything going on in his head too. We'll get to see what Annabelle is up to later. ;)

just caught up i think this is near the recent page, to this awesome story loved it so much your right felt like a movie withngreat pacing and vibe and the ending was great. Abraham i had mixed feelings for him at the end usually i just want the bad guy to die but instead i can kinda understand him this is excellent writing. i really like all the character too i think jeriah is my favorite
9th Sep 2018, 11:04 AM
Alicia
Thank you so much! Yeah, Abraham was a really challenging character to write for-- I wanted people to be able to see where he's coming from versus "oh man he's the bad guy who is evil." He has motives. Technically, there are no villains in RL-- only people with different views.

Hello. I'm 80% not-awake and so I don't have much to say right now but this page is looking really good

OK, just how long have I been away? I turn around for a while to do my American Literature exam, next thing I know, two new pages! I'm definitely intrigued as to how the epilogue will lead into the prequel.

As for Jeriah, I can definitely see where he's coming from: he hasn't really had many opportunities to write a letter like this. Though I'm sure that, whatever he decides to go with, Annabelle will appreciate it.
13th Sep 2018, 4:35 AM
Alicia
LOL Well, I was gone all summer doing things with family and writing, sooo it's been a while?

And judging by the letters already crumpled up on the floor, Jeriah is never going to write a letter to Annabelle he feels like he can send. X'D

Interestingly enough, I have been checking every now and then for any news for the prequel/kickstarter/both, and the one time i need to dedicate my attention to something else, BOOM: Two pages XD It was a pretty pleasant surprise :)
14th Sep 2018, 7:30 AM
Oh, Jeriah. You sweet, awkward boy. That letter is NEVER going to be perfect, sorry to say. You're just going to have to suck it up, finish one, and send it. I promise Annabelle will be thrilled.

I like how he isn't even aiming for a trash can. Just tosses the crumpled almost-letters right on the floor. Good job, Jeriah. XD

The art on this page is lovely. Panel one does such an excellent job of setting the scene, and I like how you transitioned over from the last page. That's something that doesn't get talked about enough. Page transitions. It's something I've really only just started paying closer attention to and I have to say, you do a really good job with them, just overall. I love the rain on the window in panel one; it does SUCH a good job in both the transition and the setting of the scene.

Shadows too! Again, something I've not noticed a lot of in the past, but I love how it genuinely looks like the light in that room is coming solely from that little lamp on his desk. Really does a good job of setting tone and mood, especially with the black-and-white color scheme this comic has going on. Jeriah's expressions are spot on, as they always are. I've got a particular soft spot for panel three; then again, I have a particular soft spot for how you draw faces in profile in general.

And that last panel. Oh, Jeriah. And again with the hands that I love so dearly! And there's that pesky lightning, coming in with a crack of thunder. Smells like a scene change to me!

Haha yeah... if you're going to crumple up every letter to Annabelle that might give away your feelings for her, you're gonna be here all night, Jeriah. X'D

Thanks! Yeah I try to make the transitions as cinematic as I can and easy for the reader to follow. I try to play out every scene in my head kind of like I'm watching a movie and select certain parts to freeze and put on each page, lol.

Once again, those are my own hands I used for reference to crumple up the paper, haha. X'D

And yep, scene change on the next page. And I think you're gonna like this scene too because a certain someone is going to be there. ;)
