Chapter 5 ends.

And they never saw Michelle again. The end.

Have a good weekend, everyone. The final chapter of Book Three starts Monday.

Until then, don't forget to vote for us on Top Webcomics and help us push our way up that Top 10! Alt dialogue served up on the other side! http://topwebcomics.com/vote/8932/default.aspx

Uh oh. This looks like the beginning of the end, now, doesn't it?

Vicki (Guest), October 14th, 2011, 12:08 am

Oh, please tell that isn't true. Please tell me we haven't lost Michelle forever. Don't break my heart, too.

Gibson Twist, October 14th, 2011, 12:12 am

Don't worry, Michelle will be back.

stephen (Guest), October 14th, 2011, 12:12 am

that's awful. she's been my favorite all this time.

/edit - damn you for toying with our emotions

Michelle is probably the character I relate to the most. I'm so sad to see her like this, and so proud at the same time. I really hope she sticks around.

I take back what I said about best alt dialogue ever two days ago

Katlamos, October 14th, 2011, 12:15 am

This whole comic, especially the last few chapters, keeps making me think of this:
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace."

Not really all that religious, but it seems to fit the tone of this. But it does seem that the end is nearing.

If they never see Michelle ever again, I'll kill you. Or I'll die. Probably the second. But oh em geee, I am so not ready for this, or their all falling apart and ending >.<

As for the alt dialog, I half expected that when reading it XD Did Peter overhear? He must have, for his comment. But if he didn't, I'd've died right then and there if he'd actually said that lol

This is near the end of book three. If I remember rightly there are 10 books in total. This is certainly a shakeup but I don't think there'll be a massive explosion any time soon. We're still building characters up and organising pieces.

Or at least I think so. Might be wrong.

The end.

leonardhbrown, October 14th, 2011, 7:23 am

That was tough. The conversation coming between Christo and Peter might be tougher.

Jeffko, October 14th, 2011, 8:23 am

Extra panel
Should be a wee extra panel at the end, where Peter comes into Christo's room:

Peter: Hey, wanna get blitzed?

Christo: Oh, sweet mother of god, yes...

Gibson Twist, October 14th, 2011, 8:39 am

@Jeffko: Don't go getting ahead of us! Still one more chapter to go!

Jeffko, October 14th, 2011, 8:44 am

@Gibson Twist: Oh crap! Sorry!

VoxAngeles, October 14th, 2011, 8:50 am

Michelle looks insanely pretty in the fourth panel.

Goodbye, Michelle. I still love you.

I hope she doesn't completely disappear from the comic....Good lord that would suck.

Finfan (Guest), October 14th, 2011, 9:33 am

Actually as far as break ups go that was exceptionally civilized. Sad but true, not all couples are meant to be together.

Midsie, (Guest), October 14th, 2011, 11:39 am

We all knew this was coming from the prologue...but it doesn't stop you from hoping it all works out somehow...

Also, for some reason Michelle's hair is distracting me in this page. It seems rather stiff....it still sticks to the art style of the comic but for some reason the fact that its not a little more flowy....(or is it flowier?) irks me a little.

Jade (Guest), October 14th, 2011, 12:35 pm

Good 'ol Peter, the shoulder to cry on.

ce (Guest), October 14th, 2011, 12:49 pm

This is a painful Gibson plot Twist, but it signals significant growth for Michelle and Christo.

If they don't get past this, at least they've come a long way with taming their demons.

I suspect Christo won't give up that easily.

Guest, October 14th, 2011, 1:53 pm

could it be thats she's in love with peter?

Guest, October 14th, 2011, 2:52 pm

@Jeffko: Love your icon

Jerel, October 14th, 2011, 5:03 pm

I wonder if Peter and Michelle have a future? Time will tell.

white4lima, October 14th, 2011, 5:41 pm

am i the only one who feels like that alt dialogue would still fit in the story as is?

youngcannibals, October 14th, 2011, 11:16 pm

You know, before I checked out the alternative dialog, I said to myself "Sweet, she's single now."

Hana-Cake, October 15th, 2011, 6:40 pm

Is Peter still with Kara? I can't remember if they broke up but I don't see them together much anymore D:

Arysthae (Guest), October 16th, 2011, 4:15 pm

Wow. It took me three days to read through your archives and it was so worth it! This is really great! If anything, It tells me what not to do when going to college. But the charcters are so alive! It's amazing! This deserves to be number one on TWC!
