Hope you enjoyed them.
Thanks for reading…and see you next week for more.
Man, that’s a powerful moment you’ve written there, Scott. How many years has it BEEN since they’ve seen each other, again? And she didn’t even know she was real until recently…
YAY! Happy reunion is happy :’D
Pure awesome, Scott! Just… pure awesome.
Well this has had many new developments in the past week or so a little rushed but still cool.
Eeee! The happiest face!
(My comments have been pretty incoherent this week but only because I’ve been so full of happy glee when I read this comic.
Thank you so much, Scott, for writing something so wonderful.
I’m glad you put this reunion in here. It’s very sweet!
Crowning moment of heartwarming right there. That is beautiful and sweet. Awwww.
kitty cat and ponytai!
D`; That’s what I was gonna say. So touching and sweet. T~T
Aww… how delightfully mushy. *sniff*
*sniffsniff* That’s so wonderful… *sob* Someone got a tissue?
*hands box of tissues*
Yep. Got a problem with that dust cloud getting in my eye again.
Must be my allergies allergic to sad but happy reunions with these 2
This page hit me harder than any of the others. Pet names… get you every time!
I find the lighting of this page outstanding.
This week is great for the reunion itself but even more so for the fact that ANY lingering doubts they had concerning the reality of Dreamland are gone!It is so cool! (I have been reduced to a little excited kid!)
Scott, these pages have been so much fun, and it’s awesome that you worked it so that Nicole got to see Felicity again. *another Snoopy happy dance for joy*
Also, I’ve been voting as often as the system allows. I’m so happy to see that DL is at #5. This must make you very happy!
Have a great weekend.
Lots of thanks for your votes, Tink!
Here’s what I’ve found out. While TWC says, ‘You are allowed to vote once per machine per 24 hours for EACH webcomic,’ it’s actually one vote from one IP address a day. And hey, it’s them who set the rules.
Alright Scott Christian Sava, you win. I have been pretty good at abstaining from any of the “d’awwww” conversations and tissue passing these past couple of pages, but this page brought involuntary tears to my eyes. Well done~
And I’m so glad they can hear each other ^___^
and this is the 3rd time I’ve looked back at the page and I still feel a stuffy sensation around my nose bridge area every time I look at it no matter how much I prep myself for it…
They both still have that little kid inside them. They remembered their nicknames for each other, even after all these years!
Thank you all!
I had originally had the panels reversed in the script.
Felicity looked up and smiled, “Hey, Ponytail!”
Nicole said with tears in her eyes, “Hi, Kitty cat.”
I think that worked better for their personalities…but visually (especially with Nicole looking down into the water) this way worked best.
Sigh. No page is ever perfect….
this is such a beautiful page!
I think it is perfect this way. Yes, Felicity has the more forceful, outgoing personality. But with this arrangement, there’s a subtle nuance of a hint that this reunion not only completely floored Felicity, but also provided a much needed boost to Nicole’s confidence in herself and her belief in Dreamland.
If you allow for that, it’s perfectly acceptable for Nicole to speak first.
No, this page is perfect because this is where Nicole finally acknowledges to herself that it’s real and her story has come full circle.
i second it its is perfect just the way it is scott, dont change a thing
So cute and heart warming! Nice to finish the week like that!
Reader, reader on the Net,
What’s the best webcomic that you get?
Lift up your mice and VOTE!
Dreamland is the very best.
As I’m sure you all have guessed.
I vote every chance I get!
Have you all been voting yet? (Yes, I’m talking to you lurkers out there.)
I think you’ve made me tear up every day this week. That must be a webcomic first. Seriously, this was a very sweet scene. Well done.
‘sniff’… ‘sniff’… WAAAAAAAAAAH!! … ‘sniffle’
Fine just as it is, Scott. Don’t change a thing… :’-)
Huh. So Felicity isn’t crying after all. At least not yet!
And so nice to not have a cliffhanger on a Friday!
@Jakesdad: I think Felicity is totally crying, but she’s underwater, so it doesn’t show. Her tears simply join the salty sea.
Lovely, Scott. *hug*
Maybe she’s just not a ‘happy’ crier. She cried and tears showed back when Nasti was being a jerk the first time they had mertails.
This has absolutely been the best week of the Dreamland Chronicles EVER!
Just FYI if she can’t touch her, then she wouldn’t be able to hear her either since sound waves are also physical (and have to hit the ear drum to be “heard”). Let’s just chalk another one up to “magic” huh
Well, maybe not?
/* begin geek rant How about an impermeable event horizon at the top of the pool in Dreamland corresponding with the water’s edge in ‘realspace’. The ‘technology’ of dreamland creates hyperstrings causing both to vibrate, but without the subject being in proper phase-shift, normal matter cannot travel due to an active control mechanism?
I assume the inability to cross worlds is not so much a natural phenomenon as an artificial lockout due to a higher power.
end geek rant*/
Nah, magic is probably right!
Think of it as dreamland skype. Solves everything.
And magic, by definition, follows its own rules.
………very well said. Quite true. And sound waves are vibration and water is a wonderful conductor of vibrations (whale song [it sounds way different if you aren't hearing it through water]) Also? SHE HAS MERLIN’S STAFF!! All arguments against the reality of this page are mute!! Now stop the serious talk and start handing out tissue boxes! Q~Q
Actually, even though the physical substances containing the sound waves can’t pass through the portal, the energy causing the waves can, and would duplicate the sound waves in the substance on the other side of the portal. A good example is how electronic devices use energy to receive and duplicate sound.
Just saying it is logically possible…
Light&sound are both waves.
And to be very precise, if quantum mechanics is right, even matter is actually waves. Something very wrongly interpreted by the New-Age crowds, hence their talk about getting oneself into “higher vibrations” when they mean the buddhist kind of “enlightenment”
Perfect. You nailed it spot on. Thank you, Scott.
being older I was taught that men shouldnt cry or show that we are effected in a manner that we could maybe cry.. so can someone tell me why my eyes are moist with joy right now? its my wifes fault im sure she softend me up over the years….my only regret is they cant hug…
Yet. They can’t hug yet.
A master stroke I’d say! So is this the end of this chapter or are there more pages to go?
About 40 more pages to go until the end of Chapter 17.
they can talk! They can most indubitably talk…
Wow. *opening new package of tissue*
whatba hreat start of my weekend!
Ugh, big hands, small iPad keyboard.
“What a great way to start the weekend!”
This is better than the bonus they gave me at work today.
The longing. The realization. Soon we trust, the fulfillment.
The best news i’ve received all month
OMFG SCOTT!! Each time I look at it and read it, I can’t help myself from tearing up! Were you crying while writing the script then finally drawing it out? Or are you not affected since this has been apart of you for so long?
….crud. I just re-read from when Nicole walks into the water up until now. If I didn’t have a User on the line (Help desk rep), I prolly would have started flat out crying. Q_Q T~T ;^O^;
Hello Scott! Hi faithful readers! I just finished reading everything (and many comments) over the last two days.
I’m sorry I missed out on voting for TDC on ComicMix. However, I did discover TDC via TWC. I will be sure to vote regularly.
I look forward to coming back daily.
BTW (from posts back in 2007), I play WoW.
Welcome to Dreamland!
It’s all I can do to stop myself from… no… can’t anymore…
Oh my god, this page!!!!
I have nothing to add – I just want to say that this is beautiful!
Next Sentence “Nice Ear rings”
*sniffles*… *bawls*… (read the last four pages at work, is getting funny looks now ^.^)
Felicity is just delightful on this page, and I never noticed before how glowy those armlets of hers are… O_o
Still, it’s hard to convey in words, but staring at the second panel I dare say one gets a sense of what it must feel like, to be Nicole in this moment. Felicity looks so very, very close, and impossibly vital, so very much alive and near, yet too far to reach, too perfect to be a part of the waking world. Yet there she is, alive, seemingly just inches away.
In short, Felicity is an inspirational character, and this is, for me at least, an inspirational page. Thanks again Scott!!! ^_^
What a beautiful moment.
And I think we can now safely say that Nicole will be a full convert.
BEST POSSIBLE END EVER! Thank you, Scott!
Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
Timely quote! +1
If I can put it another way: “The ending has not yet been written”.
GREATEST. TWO PANEL PAGE EVER!!! (sorry but that deserved all caps!)
That would make a nice desktop. Maybe with those panels side-side and some fade?
Scott, what is the original render resolution you use? Would you have to re-render them?
Well done Scott
Incredible page Scott. An only Nichole could get by with calling Felicity kitty cat
Pages that make ya go ….Q.Q ::shniffle::
Best. Update. Ever.
…dammit I’m crying too… <3
All of that build up…for THIS!? I can’t believe I hung in so long, *sniff!*, just to be let down, *SOB!*, so terribly! I expected so much ……WAAAHHHH! Sorry, I have to go……..
Pages like these are the proof that well-done CGI can be as powerful as the classic drawing styles.
By the by, just 1 little niggle. Nicole’s left eye seems a bit odd, you’d expect that the eye that’s in the light, would be sqeezed for a bit, but it is the eye in the dark.
Or is that just the result from hand-painting the tears? *scratches chin* hmmm.. Still loks a bit off.
On the other hand, her mouth is spot-on! Júst a-symmetric enough to convey Nicole’s emotional turmoil.
