Hey, I was sick a couple days - so to fight boredom I did a couple pages in a day. This pace won't be maintained haha. Dreamtime is coming again soon...

Totally agree Kallikak. I live near a clinic that has 4 doctors; one of them an immigrant from Pakistan. Most of the patients request to see the Pakistani doctor, even though his english isn't that great, simply because he is so nice and really seems to care. As for if it all could be a dream, I think it's cool that you have go "hmmmmm?" But I do feel it has to be handled well or it feels like having the rug pulled from under you when the 'Big Reveal' come. The movie 'Boxing Helena' is another example, where you have tons of plot and events happen, only to have the guy wake up at the end and realized he dreamed it all - I felt cheated.

hehe, the last panel. my recent trips to the doctor have had me wondering if in the 12 years of schooling, why doctors never need a class on talking to patients as if they were humans! a lot of them talk at you, and are very discouraging and negative about the diagnosis they give. when she first woke up after the dream experiment, i actually thought the same thing as plymayer! it could all still be a dream (although, unlike most other stories that use that idea, the news wouldn't necessarily come as a relief this time around <.<)

Thanks Paul :) While I will play around with the theme of uncertainty to a fair extent (the dreams are incredibly realistic, and reality is getting pretty weird as well), I can promise that when the finale comes, it won't be like Season 9 of TV series Dallas (for those too lazy to google, they retconned an entire season of episodes as one of the character's dream... blech). I hope you like the different spin I'll be putting on this type of story in the coming chapters.

I knew from the start that this is not one of these run-off-the-mill "is it a dream or is it?" stories. It's one of the reasons why I love this comic.

Thanks, plymayer, with these kinds of stories, that sort of ambiguity makes it part of the appeal, in my opinion. Having to give the nature of reality a bit of thought is fun. Let it be said, though, that I really dislike stories in which it's revealed that most or all of the story was just a dream. (it's a cop-out ass-pull) The most recent twilight movie sort of fits that (Twilight aren't good movies in most other ways, imo, but that's another story - they do have cool cgi wolves though)

Bad news always first.
Not to take away from the current page, which is great by the way, I'm wondering if the whole thing isn't a dream. Maybe she never woke up. Don't say if that's so. I want to read the rest of the story and be surprised no matter what.
