YMMV / Silent Hill: Promise

  • Archive Panic: Promise was a daily comic. Sometimes it got more than one update per day.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The letter describing Vanessa and James watching Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Vanessa writing she likes the smell of smoke because it reminds her of James is oddly sweet.
    • This is Silent Hill we're talking about, and there's something not quite right about their relationship. Look at the way the picture has changed since she got into town, as well as the caption on the back. There's a reason that Vanessa is affected by Silent Hill the way she is and it looks like it has something to do with the relationship she had with her uncle.
      • Like the Incest Subtext? Yeah that's becoming...kinda more prominent. Vanessa does seem to have a certain bitterness towards Mary in addition to the photo's inscription changing from "to the prettiest bridesmaid" to "the prettiest" and how the picture goes from happy and positive to quite bleak. Yet Mary's expression never changes until recently. And she finds Borje so attractive yet comments he looks kinda like her Uncle James...
      • She's also recently encountered a monster that resembles two figures having sex on a chair, that and her memories now tell her that she was drinking a lot at her uncle's wedding. It seems to imply they may have well slept together, or at least something happened.
      • And now we have Vanessa finding herself rather aggressively attracted to a mannequin of Pyramid Head. And we all know who he represents...
