Umm…. There was that one CSI episode that involved pigs…
This theory is:
*Hides Zero’s matches*
*hides Auto’s dueling banjos and DVD of Deliverance*
The flames… Wren feels them. He fights through the pain, to reach his fallen friends…
But, it’s too much. The heat overwhelms his senses, and yet, he’s somehow aware of the distant sound of rain. He runs, unseeing, towards the downpour. He stumles into the deluge, instantly feeling the relief of-
“Wha’?” The inferno, instantly washed from his mind… Wren is overwhelmed by a visage of pure beauty and bewilderment. Rivulets of water run down reddened cheeks, cling to the neck, and vanish into a huge, sopping wet towel. “Uh! Aaa! S-sorry! Aaa!”
The lips gradually curl, from shock to amusement, as understanding twinkles into her eyes. “I still have five minutes of shower time left, Soggy Tail, so scram!”
He backs, unblinking and unspeaking, from the spray, as she tilts her head into the stream, splashing a silky, raven lock from her brow.
He stumbles, zombie-like out from the bathroom, water dripping from his fur, leaving a sine wave of drops on the carpet as his tail slowly undulates, side to side. The corner of mouth starts to rise, and he becomes aware of a new, and alien emotion… Joy. He relishes the strange, yet pleasant concept, as-
He backs quickly to the doorway, fumbling for the knob, as he dare not turn his eyes in that direction. His hand encircles the knob, and he jerks a little too eagerly, causing a bit of a slam.
He hears elated, muffled snickering, even cackling through the door, and realizes that Anna, too, has found joy.
A new vision enters his mind… Her body, wrapped in white, not a towel, but a dress, not merely a dress, but a gown. Her face and her hair, the shared, eager smile, covered, but not blocked… draped actually, in the delicate threads of a veil.
Dang! This comic is too amazing! The characters are too real! I started to write a 2 paragraph joke, but somehow ended up going all fanfic.
I guess that since madsniper took a headshot to the happy times Wren was having, I felt that I needed to give him and Anna one more moment of joy to hold onto.
If the readers feel obliged, even responsible for adding to the fleeting snippets of contentment and family, then maybe Pascalle was right. Maybe Snipes is too mean to her characters. ;D
Whooooa! I just realized something. My kids are these ages! Bye! Gotta go put deadbolts on the bathroom doors!
Lol, has Pascalle said this somewhere? I would be highly amused if so, haha. She’s plenty mean to her own characters!
Yeah, she did. In the comments of one of your pages. Of course, her saying that you’re too mean to your characters, brings to mind glass houses and thrown stones. (I hope that doesn’t give either of you any ideas) 😉
Aww, that’s awesome! Wee, I got fanfic! XD I’m bummed it took me so long to find, haha.
