If you look deep in their stories, they are pretty sad characters. Is not like they did the stuff they did out of completely evil intentions (at least not the ones I know the story)

I finally caved and favorited this because it's just so quotable!! "What is cost that is never paid?" I have made it my personal mission to find ways to insert random Roommates quotes into my normal conversation and pretend like I don't know what people are talking about when they call me out on it. It's vastly entertaining.

(I have to be very strict with myself regarding what I fav, otherwise I'll just fav the entire comic and that's not the /point/.)

I hope to reference this someday as a story dynamic. When there is no fourth wall, and the characters--particularly villains (and Jamie)--get to express their side in light of knowing the end, it's... it's kind of magical.

Terry Pratchett does it quite often, especially in his Witches stories. The anime Princess Tutu (ignore the silly name, the story actually ends up quite deep) does the same. It's fascinating to watch, especially once you start trying to learn how to create stories yourself...

"All things strive."
I love that quote of Pratchett's. More than love it. If someone could boil down the point and purpose of all beings, all events in the universe, it would be this - and he summed it up in three simple words. Bloody amazing. So thank you for using that most awesome quote.

That is a question I've often asked myself(and the basis for much of my fan work)and I love that you had him ask it.

What *would* YOU do, if you were a villian given the chance to be the hero? To change the story for even a second?

And the sad thing is, you don't even have to be the villain to wonder.

Is that why I'm always more sympathetic toward the villains than the heroes?

Panel 5 Jareth, what with the costume change and all... he is positively writhing. Very Baleful Polymorph-sorta vibe.

"All things strive." That reminds me of Imriél... And is a very strong summing-up of the theme. That one definitely hit the bullseye for our Antagonist onlookers. Again, you are so very much in control of your storyline in all its potential... brava.

Thank you very much! I always thought that, if we could *see* Jareth's costume changes, they'd be disturbingly organic looking, beautiful but unnerving at the same time.

I blame shojo manga, really, as an early influence on my drawing style. You speak of patience, as if I had the patience to do those amazing backgrounds and landscapes you do so well. Not to mention shading. You do such wonderful shading.
