    Death does wait, for all of us,
    for everyone to take this bus,
    to the grand old other side,
    some ashamed, some full of pride.

    Admit the thought has crossed my mind,
    when the world is harsh and blind,
    ignorin’ my needs, my woes, my pain,
    when all you do ends up in vain.

    Yet here I sit, and write these lines,
    still holding on, the little signs.
    Life’s harsh and cruel and unfair too.
    So yes, I know a thing or two.

    The reasons differ, as do we,
    some fall, some live, now hear my plea.
    Hold on to loved ones, on to joy,
    think of, for me, my little boy.

    Remember those, who’d miss you so,
    if you were gone, a major blow.
    How did you feel, when they were gone?
    Loss ain’t sweet, no it’s not fun.

    Sometimes you feel, you’re all alone,
    that you don’t matter, lost to the bone.
    Yet now please take a look around,
    and I’ll just bet, hope’s to be found.

    Don’t end yourself, since people care,
    life’s harsh and cruel, can you be fair?
    Of course the thought has crossed my mind.
    But I hold on, made up my mind.

      According to the Discord server, the page went up at 2 PM CET.
      My poem got posted at 5:30 PM CET…so I really don’t know about ‘fast’ or ‘timely’. πŸ˜€

      As for the ‘how’…yes well, usually I sit down, open the new page and the editor next to each other, pick something from the page as theme…and then I kinda go with the flow of things.

      You see, I’m what you’d call a ‘chaotic’ writer, meaning I don’t spend a lot of time planning things…this makes ‘foreshadowing’ difficult for me, since I myself often don’t quite know what’s coming. πŸ˜€
      So sometimes ‘the big reveal’ comes completely unpremeditated and the reader is caught off guard.
      Some people like that, others don’t.

      And while I am at it, I’d once again would like to thank my biggest benefactor, without whom my stories would likely be either dead boring or a complete mess or both…well, more than they already are. πŸ˜€
      So thank you, gut feeling. I wouldn’t be know where to start or where to go without you. πŸ˜€

    “The third time was when the demons appeared. I was in a group that decided to kill themselves and drew straws to decide who should kill the others before committing suicide. I drew the short straw, killed everyone and then got ‘rescued’ by the military before I could end my own life. God, there was so much blood everywhere. Then I met you kids and felt like I couldn’t just leave you to die, what with Rob and Ada being able to actually fight back. Even though I feel worthless I should at least give you whatever knowledge I can share, even if that means having to rummage around demon guts for the rest of my life.”

    Sorry, couldn’t resist. πŸ˜€ I wonder how many more people will have committed suicide in the coming pages.
    Don’t worry, I can’t read ahead and this is just some nonsense head-cannon.

    I wonder if his boss was gay.

    >Boss develops “unhealthy amount of interest” in guy. That person tries to kill himself and fails. This causes boss to kill himself<

    if that was actually the pΓΆot of a story, I would find it as way to melodramatic. But as background for a character it works, strangely enough. And it is really effective I mean, even the girl that just tried to kill herself is shocked.

      A lot of plots that wouldn’t work as “actual story” can work very well as backstory. It’s pretty neat.

    Ah. This might not be the best news, but, there’s a grammer mistake in there. He’s talking about an event in the past, and during that event the boss realized his actions further in the past had caused harm, so it should be “he’d” rather than “he’s”.

    New sketches on your Twitter, yay! I particularly like the one in the upper left corner of Ada and Laura reading together.

    What the f***.

    That’s way heavier shit than I was expecting even for this comic.

    And I gotta say, I like that you’re introducing the idea of male-on-male sexual(?) harassment and treating it seriously.

  9. NoriMori Reply

    I really want to know the story behind the murder. That’s the kind of thing you hear about on Forensic Files. Was it a random attack, or a targeted killing? Was it motivated or random? Did they catch the murderer? So many questions!

    I love how Nina was like hey don’t try and by my therapist, and then Stefen just turned it back on her like, ah you misunderstand, it is your who is the therapist today, now then let’s talk about my trauma so my brother his wife and their child got murdered in the same house I slept in–
