Most readers of this story will likely agree on one truth of this comic above all else- the twist at the end of Part 1 was a complete and total shock. For some, it was a Wall Banger
, and the abrupt, seemingly out of nowhere Genre Shift
that accompanies it were just too much, and they stopped reading. But... really, was it all that bad?
First of all, it was intended from the very beginning
. There's a lot of stuff that actually makes much more sense, like Lia's reasons to not be with Fiona and Conscience's (Or shall I say, Mary's)... entire existence.
And that's before you even get into the amazing Character Development
that happens post-twist. We learn that there's more to each and every character than meets the eye. It adds depth by simply showing who they really are underneath the surface they (willingly) hid under for all of the first part. Enemies become friends, friends become... not friends, and we still don't know the fate of a certain character that we're all on the edges of our chairs for.
Sure, there's still a lot of stuff that doesn't make sense quite yet. But that's because it's a story
, and one that still isn't finished at that. It'll inch along at it's own pace, allowing us to take it all in slowly as the characters grow and develop, one Monday/Wednesday/Friday at a time.
And isn't that
what all webcomics, regardless of plot or lack thereof, are all about?
So please, read it. It hasn't gotten any worse, in fact, I'd say it's an improvement. If you still dont' like it anyway, that's cool. You certainly are under no obligation to. I'm just saying, it's likely worth it.
