Thanks for reading!

If you haven't read, go to the first page. Do not rewind.

If you have read, there are a half dozen pages of ending you might have missed. :)

Do not discuss spoilers here. Feel free to do so on any of the other ending pages. :)

As always, I have several comics on ComicFury, check it out.

I'm pretty sure I recognize my own artwork, but I have no idea what panel your avatar is from.

I have to admit, it was such an unusual avatar, that I could remember it.

This was a trip and a half. I think I like it more than NMTG but a little less (and this is a very little) than space pulp. Lol add to that, I read this on 3 different continents. Weeeird. :D

So what's next?

Dunno, I have three projects I'm considering. Only one is a comic, though, so I'll probably do that one.

Out of curiosity, what are the other projects ?

Dating sims.
TeeKay edit delete reply
Hm.. I guess a comic might have a wider demographic than a dating sim. If that even matters to you, that is. A comic would also be a lot easier to create and publish in frequent incremental updates...

I mostly want to make a dating sim because I haven't made one before. I don't think it'll actually happen.
Sheela edit delete reply
Sheela
Frankly, do what you want to do, and create what you want to create !
And if you feel like creating a comic next, then that is what you should do. :)

Same deal if you feel like creating a dating sim.

If you made a dating sim though I'd play it for sure.
TeeKay edit delete reply
Absolutely agreed. Do what you want to, I'll read or play either way.

It would certainly be interesting to see a dating sim, but wouldn't you need a crew to build it? Or would it be more choose-your-own-adventure type?
Sheela edit delete reply
Sheela
It is possible to make a game, just one man hotdog high.
You just have to limit the scope of your ambitions a bit.
TeeKay edit delete reply
There's lots of different kinds of dating sims too. Many are very text heavy and the amount of unique art can be surprisingly low - certainly much less than in a comic.

That's definitely not the type I'd make. :)

Hey view!

Thanks a lot for the comic, really enjoyed it :)

I also want to cheer you up with the dating sim, writting a game is hard, but you are already good at history telling and drawing which are the most important components in a dating simulator, if you need help with the programming I can give you a hand :)

Thanks for the offer, but I'll make a prototype all on my own and see if it's any fun.

In case you were wondering, "Do I look perfect to you?" "Yes." is when I cried about this pervy webcomic. Thanks, View.

Hell of a comic, ol' view. They don't all have to be super complex twists where the end makes the entire rest of the comic different.. This was just pleasant and I'm looking forward to the next!
Lepinkäinen (Guest) edit delete reply
It's rare that I want to comment a work of art on the intermanetses, but... thank you. This was truly a lovely piece of fiction(presumably). Really looking forward to whatever you create from here on and in the mean time I'll have to check out the other pieces you've done so far. Thank you.

Oh View, thank you so much for all the stuff you've done, all the comics you've made have been so wonderful.

I adored this comic and I hope to re-read it many times. This was however, the first comic that I caught up to through the rest of your work, so I don't know if you normally take a lot of time in between comics, or if you have something planned already.

Thanks again!

I've been reading Scrub since Inception after finding your work somewhere I cannot possibly remember.

I can't wait to see what you come up with next. I also need an avatar so for now I'll borrow this if that's okay.

My favourite story on this site by far.

Thanks and all the best!

Congratulations on another finished comic, I enjoyed it very much. I think this might be your longest one yet, but the pacing was such that it flowed well and didn't feel TOO long at all.
Also, the experiments with art were pretty cool.
Looking forward to your next work, whatever should it be.

I'm a big fan of the universe that NMtG & Scrub are based in, you did a great job establishing that world. I need more! Not expecting you to do anything there again though, don't wanna be too restrictive! ;)

I'll definitely be re-reading both comics many times in the future. Thanks again!

I literally commented on 'Mind the Gap' about how much I liked it and Space...

Thanks for tipping me on this. I got no work done today because of it, but I love it.

I actually like your worlds more than any of the characters. Very high concept. I also appreciate the very limited exposition, it makes your worlds so much easier to digest in this format.

It also makes the discoveries so much more 'wow'.

Your characters are great, though. And so varied across your work. The smutty portions are dealt with carefully, which I appreciate.

I dunno what else to say. Great experience.

HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! ^^ (I have written four separate paragraphs, so reply on the very last one, sorry I wrote so much!) This comic is really sweet, like super super super sweet! :D You really deserve more recognition and praise for all of the hard work you've pulled off. With topics such as sexuality (WOO LGBT!), race, drama, fear of losing a loved one, and (to some extent) abuse from a relationship.
Raitera (Guest) edit delete reply
Are there some flaws? No comic is truly perfect, there are some flaws. But the flaws here are overshadowed by the character dynamics of the main characters, and they are just wonderful. Relates to me when looking at the struggles of just telling her "I love you" and try to say it without just faint or worry that she would feel uncomfortable with the relationship and leave completely. The feeling of just a same-gendered, as well as interracial, couple in a relationship, and rather not get harassed for it, or really treated differently than any other couple. It's something that I find admirable, after all any relationship should not be forced upon by others who just view it as "wrong" or someone just praising them all the time for "going against the norm." Rather, just you focus on whom you love, and why you love that person, no matter who they are, just the personality and the relationship and I love that to bits.
Raitera (Guest) edit delete reply
The drawings here are just wonderful, adding color to just whenever the characters are in water, and the water itself. And sometimes not even, from the emotion, the characters show color, and that takes a lot of hard work. You've worked so hard in this comic, and that really shows off here. Make the comic represent such personality, personality that you've worked tirelessly on as well. The emotion that these drawings can create are just astounding, letting the colors speak for itself throughout the environment, and how it has created such beautiful backgrounds and terrific artistry. You feel for the characters when you see their expression, and just from those facial and body features. These features show how much time, effort, and dedication the artist throughout this comic. And it heavily pays to end in such a wonderful (and colorful) ending, and make it all better for the main characters at the end.
Raitera (Guest) edit delete reply
The emotion and character here, just wow. You don't even need dialogue, the emotion can just speak for itself it's amazing. The humor, the drama, the love, the lust. All just mixing with one another in such a way for readers to show the complexity of the characters and story in a creative way. To create a unique dialogue color for Alis to differentiate her predicament of her illness. The background on these characters are really nice, and you don't have to focus so much on them. I feel for Sean and Allis, with the emotions of trying to be calm, cool, and collecting, mixed in the emotions of cheerful, fun loving, and caring, respectively. But even these characters have flaws: Sean's flaw being that she wants to identify herself in relation to Alis, while Alis is trying to go past pessimism and just wanting to tell the girl that she loves her (as well as trying not to be as salty as a pearl sometimes!) Even the more minor characters have background and unique personality that you just love. Such as the best friend, her bf, and Alis' mother, to name a few. The interaction of those characters is sometimes just so touching and heartfelt.

Your comic is just extraordinary. Just these controversial topics being handled with such care! You are a wonderful creator for doing all of this! I would love to see another comic done by you, because what you have shown us the audience is something truly wonderful, and I wish more people could read. And like this comic, you are really wonderful for doing this! Thank you so much for showing us such a beautiful story. I wish you such love, respect, and luck for your other projects that you would be doing, and keep on working so hard. I'm sure it will pay off someday, especially for someone as talented and hard-working as you! ❤ (Also sorry, I wrote five, I am really tired at the moment, but I did want to write to you this really long comment!)

Glad you liked it, and there are several other comics by me. Click my name!

None of them are exactly like his one, though.
Raitera (Guest) edit delete reply
Does it matter? Every comic won't be exactly the same, and so far, each of your comics have a good theme built to them. May I ask if you have a Deviantart, Picarto, or Tumblr? I would like to see more of your individual art if you don't mind.
