WOW! DOUBLE DIGITS! AND THERE'S STILL A FEW MORE PAGES TO GO.

I really like how this is one of the few chapters where things are played straight and he just talks about his mom. Don’t get me wrong, I love the metaphorical pages that are both a combination of his thoughts and feelings and inner turmoil, but pages like this help make it feel like things have broken through in a sense. It’s like the next step. You wrestle with your feelings for a bit, and then you try and come to terms with things. I really love how you’re able to give that sense of progression with this story.
SPIKE
thank you
this page is one I really needed to include, I think. it's hard to bottle things up and keep them bottled up indefinitely

Jesus, dude, I’ve been there.

I really like these pages where Speedy is genuinely opening up about his past. It feels very real and it’s clearly still haunting him.
SPIKE
I'm glad it feels real. this part was very emotional to write. it's been six years for him but it's hard to cope with when the only coping mechanism is drugs

DAYYYYYUM this is really sad. I really love how you took your time with these backstories, just giving them to us slow and letting the magnitude of them build.
SPIKE
thank you
it's been a slow story and I think this is the first "payoff" moment so far. I'm glad everyone is enjoying it. those moments when foreshadowed hints are delivered upon are so important

I just want to give Speedy a hug, and not let go until he's okay again. I know that's weird to say, especially from me, but I think we both could use one right now.
SPIKE
it's not weird
sometimes a hug and a cry are the right move
Speedy kinda looks like he has a Kraft's single on his cheek.
