Remember that song from page 4? It came back.

In case we haven't made it clear this tournament/comic wasn't safe for children, let me go and slam that coffin shut. And in case you need clarity, yes it's a song about rape and ripping out unborn babies from pregnant mothers as a source of population control. She makes an off-handed reference to the practice on page 6. It's kind of really horrible. Had to revise the poem three times, still not very good.

And that's the song she uses to represent Pripyat.

But wait. She's not finished singing yet.

I hope this wasn't too horribly offensive. Well I know it kind of is but I hope I don't get any angry comments from it. Also, I've done a lot of dissections. Intestines don't work that way. Just wanted to clarify.

I entered Zasha (as a shape-shifter who moves between human and canine forms) in another tournament and lost in the first round. I've been writing a lot of side entries and this song seems fitting. With full credit given to you, would you care if I had her sing it to herself in one of the side entries? If not, that's fine, too. :) Just wanted to get permission before I did anything else with the idea.

I don't recall if I said this before, but after re-reading this I'm confirming that all I hear in the background while reading this song is Don't stop Believing. C: Not sure why though. xD

Tell me it isn't Bosso.

It wouldn't be, saddly. It's a disturbing thought.
But what's more disturbing is that I was all, "No, he can't do that! I luvs him!"
Then I remembered he's a murdring, cheating, lying assface who deals in cannabalism and prostuion. Oh, and Speaks has similar attribues, and she's pretty much the coolest thing since pencil sharpeners.
You can't judge by actions alone. It's a weird, weird thing to apply to real ife. Which facet of their personality is more pertinent? Personally, I say the murdering cheating bits, but I still find the characters endearing and want to hear their story.
God you wrote this well. Thanks for tripping me out. xD

I did try to make him charismatic and a likable character. It's a personal pet peeve of mine when people make villain-esque or 'bad' characters really over the top in order for the audience to understand "hey look, this guy is doing bad stuff!" We understand they're not supposed to be the 'good guys' but you can still make them three dimensional. They don't have to be constantly slaughtering babies and laughing maniacally to get that message across. Maybe that's why I gave Bosso white fur and blue eyes, the typical attributes of 'good' characters, instead of, for example, black fur and red eyes. Is too predictable. Oh cuss I rambled, sorry.

Thank you very much for your comment, it was quite enjoyable and insightful.

Don't worry about rambling, concisness is for silly-heads.
I like the idea of Bosso having the typical "white hat" image. I hadn't put that together, but now that the idea is floating around I'm doing mental backlips. It makes me want go and re-read the comic (for the third time) to see what other little easter eggs you left us.
And thank you for continuing the conversation. I love talking to people about their work. It's a shame so many talented people are too busy to respond, but it's marvelous that you make the time.

Actually, on the subject of Easter eggs there are a few of them intentionally in my audition pages. Pay attention to the little notice signs that occasionally appear and try to read what they say.

Awww, what a sweet song. As beautiful as a nursery rhyme.

I love Speak's face in the last panel. I don't know why, just something about the way her muzzle is shaped and how her ears are back. One could almost say she looks... cute. You know, if you ignore the gore that's visualized right next to her.

I also like how the blood is dripping outta the panel. Has a nice effect :D

Wouldn't you sing it to your own wee lads and lasses one day?

What, with her yellow teeth and misshapen face and dull yellow eyes? That's cute? I suppose I've seen uglier before.

Thanks, that was fun to add. The story is leaking right out of its panels and into reality~

Oh gosh, will her bile be next to seep through the fourth wall? D8
