Hope you’re enjoying the pages…
Alex needs a hug…
the look in his eyes in the third panel… did you hear that? that was the sound of my heart shattering for him. Don’t you get it, everyone? Alex is fine with not being King. It’s his girl- the thought of loosing her forever- that’s what he cares about, that’s what he doesn’t want to let go, and everyone is telling him that he has to let her go, step down, step aside. Poor Alex. And Dan gets it. He doesn’t want to be the reason Staj and Alex are torn apart, not at all.
He looks like he’s about to cry. I’d cry, I know I would. WHY AM I SO EMOTIONAL OVER FICTIONAL CHARACTERS?
by “everyone” I mean Nicole and Nivene and the Royals.
Yeah. No one has even asked Dan if he wants to be king yet. I mean, if he has an interest in it he hasn’t talked about it much at all. People just tell him, “You’re the REAL king! Here, have a sword.” or what have you. He never has any agency, or any input. And that ain’t right.
I think Dan should speak up. It’d solve a lot of problems.
True no one has asked, but he has made it clear that wants to see dreamland for himself… thus why he created the Dreamland chronicles.
I’m not entirely sure that Nicole has made up her mind that she’d be okay with Dan traipsing about another world with pretty elves and cat girls, so we might be a little premature in assuming that she’s in favor of Alex stepping down. I just think she reacted the way she did because she doesn’t have the highest opinion of Alex and she (apparently) thinks the world of Dan.
You’re emotional because it’s a well-written story that makes you care deeply about the characters in it. Now pass the tissues, please.
And… as deeply passionate as he is in this moment, as much as he means this more than anything he has ever done, the moment is about to go byebye when he realizes he is talking about his girlfriend to her parents, wearing nothing but his underwear.
In front of 2 other people.
What the heck is Nicole even mad about? Dan doesn’t seem to care if he gets ‘credit’ for his actions, he just wants to help. And he cares about his brother. So why should she care? I think if Dan had objections, he could voice them himself. He doesn’t need anyone else to be his mouthpiece.
She’s mad because Nicole is a proud/protective girlfriend. She’s the kind of person who wants credit to be given where it is due, and from where she was standing, it sounded like the “lazy” brother just took credit for a lot of things he couldn’t have done without Her Daniel.
I would defend anyone I love if their major contributions were being minimized. Though I know that’s not what Alex meant at all.
Though of course that there are Elves in front of him opens up the possibility that Alex can physically go to Dreamland or Nastajia could go to the real world. Though it would make more sense for Alex to go, can you imagine the paperwork to get an Elf American citizenship? I don’t think they recognize Dreamland marriage certificates either.
All right – he said it. And his life will never be the same.
Ah HA!!!!! The truth finally comes out!
Now to see the reactions of everyone….
D’awwwwww!!!! Well done Alex!!! This is a HUGE step for him, and I’m so glad he finally got there!
LOL. This conversation is too serious and sweet to be had in Alex’s underwear. :}
LOL – thinking the same thing!
third panel just broke my heart. I feel for him, being apart from your loved one is realy painfull
He has said it before, to Nas!
Way to go, Alex!
as if that ‘d be helpful … I dunno. It mighta been best he be discret about THAT.
Ummm, Scott! Could I suggest making the third panel the last one of the page and double its size? Then the last one could begin another page.
Just my two cents.
awwwww poor Alex
