So I've decided to upload this unfinished manga-styled comic that I did earlier this year. It's an idea that was quite close to my heart at the time and that I needed to get off my chest. However, working it out and turning it into a short story took two months and during those two months my life transformed a lot (due to unrelated factors) and what happened was that before I was done I had lost all connection to it - I still felt the story, but while when I had started working on it I had this urge to get it out, two months later I really needed to leave it behind in the process of growing as a person. Now I look back at it and think how terribly sappy and emotional and cheesy it is, but I know how much it meant to me at some point, so I will share it for everybody who might currently be in a phase where they can connect to it.

The ending is slightly rushed and the whole thing is missing background inks and screentones, but all the core elements are there. So please read it if you're interested, and let me know what you think or if it induced some feels.

Read from right to left.

still like it ;) waiting for mooore!
Hey alpen, I think you're doing a great job with this story. It's very rare for me to follow a story that I find here on dA. I think the panel set up and dialogue sort of invite readers to see what's going on. Hope that makes sense. Anyways, looking forward to see where this goes!

Irgendwie repräsentiert dieser comic gerade auch mein Leben. Ich bin gespannt wie er sich noch entwickelt wird. Ich mag das Charakterdesign der Hauptdarstellerin, ihre Frisur und Verhalten erinnert mich ein wenig an Chihiro aus Spirited Away :)
