Ack, the feels, they burn!
the feels are through the roof of 278 Empire State Buildings.
And now the petty criminal drifter shows his soft side. It’s a trope.
Everything’s a trope these days, ain’t it?
Tropes are the genes of media, & deconstruction its inhibitors. Tropes are observable patterns in media that most likely have they’re roots in the culture hence they came, culture is a construct of sentient beings, therefore you are tropes.
Well, generally you have to have something about a character to root for. That’s why in horror movies the axe-wielding psycho is killing obnoxious annoying college kids instead of doctors saving children from a burning bus. Or for another example, Breaking Bad – Walter White was a horrible person but it at least made you *think* he was doing it for the benefit of his family and because life had been shitty for him. If there isn’t a human or relate-able element to a character you probably just end up hating the characters and want the other characters to ‘get them’.
Making villainous characters relate-able to give them depth? That’s understandable, nobody but sociopaths think of themselves as being the “bad guy”.
Even Lex Luthor doesn’t claim to be the bad guy. He thinks the ‘Metropolis Boy Scout’ limits humanity.
Not to mention he’s pretty much the *only* plain-Jane human on earth (except maybe Batman) capable of posing a threat to said Boy Scout.
Dante comes to mind
i’m detecting a sympathy act.
IT’S A TRAP!
IT’S A TARP!
you just made Gravedigger’s day
I’m laughing so hard, I can barely breathe!!!
Oh please don’t ethier be a conjob. They clicked so well in just one page!
I’m with the half of the comment’s section hoping this isn’t a con attempt by the little girl.
Am I the only one who thinks Farron should adopt her? I mean, he’d probably be a terrible parent, but at least he could understand her. And she might soften him up a bit.
You are not the only one, I assure you. (I also think Farron should be the one to adopt her.)
That Dahaki girl is pretty cute, even with the rags and dirty face. Kind of makes me wonder just how beautiful she would look once she cleans up.
My problem is… if he were to adopt her, wouldn’t she be in the cast profiles?
not if she was just made for this particular story because if she is a permanent one you know the cast roster will change don’t you?
Indeed, it would. There’s now been enough time about we mentioned that ‘mistake’ to have fixed it, so it is not an oversight
Aww, the big bad man has a heart after all ^^
Speaking of Dahaki, Skidd is gonna start to colour Milo’s Mark pages again of his gonna keep the traditional black and white colours ?
I’ll adopt her, where do I sign the paperwork?
What you say? She’s not my species and I couldn’t handle caring for a young Dahaki? Try telling that to my wife.
What you say? She’s a comic character and doesn’t exist in my world or dimension? Don’t care, we’ll find a way to be there for her.
start a patreon account for her???
Somebody, quick, GIVE THAT GIRL A HUG!!!
This comic was leading up to an “adopt a character” auction the whole time!
T_T… I will adopt her! I will raise her and treat her as my daughter. Of course meaning over protective father.
Does she need a protective parent? *puts on large metal diving suit with a drill*
ah bioshock. is there no place your references apply to?…
should I start calling you “Mr. Bubbles”?
Nah, subject: errm… *checks the Greek alphabet*
Subject: Theta, yeah that works…
Farron: usually acts like a jerk, but has a heart of gold.
I’m sure he stole it.
Methinks Farron is looking into the proverbial pond and seeing his own reflection when looking at that girl. It would be so cute if he would let her follow him around ala Sesshomaru and Rin from Inuyasha
what a coincidence I thought something similar of sorts (growing attached to her in the long run and she helping him out some)
I will adopt her!!!
Turns out Farron isn’t as bad as we thought!
Dammit Skidd why must you make us cri?
Farron is now my favorite character.
But dem FEELZ man.
Farron is not dumb, he knows she’s just playing with him so she can rob the guy.
This whole scene is too emotional… too suspicious.
Can’t be too sure, suspicion can be unfounded, chances are she is telling the truth.
Yeah, you were right… but still… i’ve got my eyes on that lizard-girl.
my goodness, she’s a cutie O.O
at least we know Farron has a heart in him
Oh my, this is so stinking cute! X3
And they are similar in this ‘all alone’ topic as I can see in last panel.
The poor girl….Wouldn’t be better if she go with Farron, so she wont be alone anymore?
Awww. Poor girl.
she is either the most heart breaking character ever or the worlds greatest con artist. personally i hope its the former though it is possible from what we see of Milo’s begining. also its good to finally have a name for his species and not assume hes some form of demon
wait a sec, even her own kind wont adopt her, damn that sucks
This is all softharded and all, but I’m starting to get the feeling that Farron had some sort of involvement in her parents’ death…
I think Brittney Karbowski’s voice would be perfect for this girl
she’s a voice actress, she voices “Wendy Marvell” from the anime “Fairy Tail”
sill no clue
She’s grifting him so hard, isn’t she?
Farron, you surprised me. I am truly happy you did.
I know sometimes things may not always make sense to you right now…”
-Eminem in “Mockingbird.”
I think that maybe be Farron’s theme song, anyone else agree?
Okay, I don’t want to be that guy, and I really do feel this scene, and I’m loving it, buuuuuut….
Farron hasn’t bought the flowers…
Actually, I just had a thought…
Daaaaawwwww the feels *sniffle* I like this side of Farron.
She reminds me of an NPC in Skyrim: Hearthfire, living under similar circumstances. If she sells enough flowers, she can afford a meal that day, and if she’s luck she can buy lodging so as not sleep in the cold streets that night… I forget her name…
Oh, I know that one! She was my first adoption! 🙂
btw, her name is Lucia 🙂
No… Lucia is in Whitrun(I usually adopt her too)… This one’s is in Windhelm.
Huh. Whoops. I’m suddenly having everything coming back to me now… Lucia just begged for a gold coin, but who was the flower girl…
Well, when I first met Lucia, I went to adopt her immediately, Then it told me that I need a house. I said, ‘Lucia, I’m going to build you a good home, give you a warm bed, and find a bunny to keep you company for when I’m not there.’ I rushed about, (at level 15) grabbing wood, clay, iron, and every bit of gold I could trade for. She got everything 🙂
Found her on the wiki. Her name is Sofie.
*Ahem* Curses for logging me off without permission, any who, it warms my heart to see someone act so kind to a orphan.
And the “D’awwww” gets cranked up to 11. <3
I’LL ADOPT HER!
awwww…I’d adopt her in a heartbeat! life’s no fun when your sad like that all the time and I’d make it a point to make her happier!
she’s already mine BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
*eyes turn red* GRAAAAAAARGHHHHHHH!!!!
don’t make me call Gravedigger
can I make a request?? I know you do not have to oblige in this request, but I want to formally request that whether or not you have this planned, if it would be possible to have the dahaki girl become a permanent side character! I do not care HOW you do it, but I want to see more of this cute girl, whether or not farron adopts her, or she just joins the group of fellow party members, that I will leave to your guys’ imaginations, all I know is I want to see more of this cute girl, and I do so hope that it involves farron adopting her or her becoming a member of the group… I just know that I for sure want to see things improve for her and would greatly like to see more of her. PLEASE MAKE THIS HAPPEN! who all agrees with me on this? I want to know how many people think this too!
i agree with you
If you want an argument, you are going down the wrong damn path. Being alone in an insecure life gives one ‘iron’ in one’s soul. I am sure this little one has already built some and will be a wonderful asset to any team.
I think this little girl would be a wonderful addition to Sesame’s bunch even without Farron. Hell, this could start a “Farron’s bunch” as a sort of ‘team bravo’ side story.
The only request I have is this girl kills off Dante
…… No I was not trying to start an argument…. that’s my legitimate request. Not sure where or how it came across as wanting to start an argument. Far from it, I just want to see more of this girl as well as see things improve for her.
Well, here’s *your* argument, Val.
That ‘iron’ bull**** you spout is pure idiocy. Unless you’ve lived that life, and understand it, then I can’t fault you for that line of thinking.
If you haven’t, then really *think*. Living alone, with no one to really care, leads to nothing but not caring back. At all. This is especially true in children living alone, who have no one to care or support for them. They grow into still beings, who don’t grow any more, beyond shutting out everyone trying to help.
could she be the cute stalker like madylen in twokinds?
…is that a pair of boobs gratified to the second story wall?
That was a technical accident; the page is still available and you can read a full explanation here: http://forums.katboxad.net/threads/ow-56-home-let-me-come-home.11080/#post-191345
Must be 18 or older to look at crudely sketched cartoon breasts.
Simpsons joke in panel one!
HAHAHAHAHAHA! TITS OMFG!
You can go with this, or you can go with that, or you can go with this…Aaaand now that song is stuck in my head.
lol That’s me on a road trip: playing a game, look up, “hey, where are we?”
Great job man!
I see a very familiar airship in the background…
This is to good to pass on doing a parody….
“In restless dreams she walked alone…. nibbling on the yummy scones.”
Oh sh-oot it’s flowey, RUN!
Sandwich pooping clouds are the best! Unless you think too much into it. XD
No but seriously, something tells me that Tina will learn a valuable lesson about the power of friendship and achieve ENLIGHTENMENT!!!
I fear everyone is in their own ‘perfect’ world…
