Sky: Oh I see, I didn't realize it was just a temporary deal. Must pay better attention before I start ranting. Didn't mean to sound overly negative by the way, I only brought YU+ME up as an example of investing a lot into a story only for it to essentially be abandoned in favor of a totally different one halfway through.
DarkVisor: Wow, if you really deduced the entire plot was the protagonist's fevered coma-dream just based on that I have to salute you and suggest you look into the PI business. Also, I did actually pick YU+ME up again a couple of years later and I did enjoy it but at the time I just felt disappointed the story I was so caught up in turned out to be a falsehood and all of a sudden I was supposed to care about all the totally unrelated business about the dream world. Imagine if aliens had invaded an hour into Lord of the Rings and now Aragorn and pals must pick up the laser cannons and fight this new enemy IN SPACE.

Stripey: I totally sympathise with your views. The core success of SS has always been in portraying as realistically as possible either my own real life experiences or those of others and enjoying how you the readers relate to them yourself. To drag the comic into fantasy world would undermine all that and naturally affect your personal interest so I wouldn't do that. Just relax and enjoy this short diversion while it lasts. ;)

Wait, the comic was called "YU+ME _Dream_" and you were shocked when it turned out to be a coma-dream? O_o You really shoulda stuck with the 2nd half, the end was well worth it

Oh man, I'm not sure about this. I trust in Sky to deliver awesomeness as she always does but I still remember that other lesbian webcomic YU+ME Dream when the author decided to yank the rug out from under her reader's feet and reveal the whole story had been a dream and the whole thing quickly changed from secret highschool lesbians to some kind of weird Alice in Wonderland story. Not exactly the same deal but the sudden and complete change in what kind of comic it was resulted in a lot of us jumping ship simply because the comic had become something we weren't interested in reading anymore. I doubt what's happening here is anything worth getting worried over but the whole "it's all not real!" revelation is a tricky storytelling technique and I've had a few bad run-ins with it in the past. Like I said though, I'm sure Sky will do something cool with it. Just feeling a little antsy.

@tommym: Absolutely right. Sarah exists in our minds and she reflects ourselves. We paint ourselves on what we see. We like the positive bits and we hate the bits that remind us of our foibles, failures and fuck ups. She is still a fully rounded character, which is why I am still reading.

Dear Sky, Yes I am keeping up. I have some first hand experience at being in the Twilight Zone :) Thanks to Rod Sterling. I am thinking this is like a "confession" or "revelation".
We know Simply Sarah is mostly an autobiography,now we know a bit more about your motives. You have turned into a master story teller. I am sure Mr. Sterling would be proud of you Sky. Love top panel, The expression on Sarah as she brain storms. Will she realize she exists in the minds of the readers of SS? -- That We Want Her To Be Real!!--Therefore Sarah IS Real!! tommym

I'm a bit behind but I'll catch up.

*Still looking for Rod Sterling on lamppost this is definitely "Twilight Zone"* Waiting for Christmas scene they would freeze their fannies off dressed like that in December.

Ah. Now I understand why Janey's been packed off to the wilds of Scotland in the middle of winter. It's the Simply Sarah version of being sent to Siberia.

Oooo! Things are getting in-ter-esting (the 4th wall hasn't just been broken, it's been shattered into a scadillion little snowflakes)
