Yeh, I know, I just keep pulling on the strings...I'm not done, either. Seriously, if you think this is bad, just wait until...ah, you'll see.

Don't forget to vote! The current incentive is a gift to all you ladies who can't get enough of boys who kiss boys. Totally safe for work.

There are no words that can describe the look on panel 4. But if I could harbor a guess, it would be that Andy's words now are sinking in.

I will return later, my fellow fans, to update you, as I often do, of the rankings (as long as I do not get a cease and desist).

Um ... how do I see the vote incentive? I've been diligently clicking on the little vote button, filling in the number verification and getting a 'thanks for voting' reply for a while but I've never seen a picture yet. And this picture I want to see...

@ Yayness if you vote at the big "Vote Here To cleanse your Palate with CUTE" sign, you'll get to see the picture after clicking. You probably went voting on WebcomicZ which is good too XD

Ok Mr Twist I teared up twice in a row this week before even going to work x_x But that's just part of a good story so..hm, awesome drawing really

BAWWWWWL!!! So I've slagged Patrick off (little jerk) in the last few pages, but now it's all ok. Nothing like the feeling of failing to protect your little sister.

Damn you Gibson Twist.
Most books, comics TV shows and films fail to evoke an emotional response out of me, and you manage to make it into that tiny 1% of things that actually make me BAWWWW...

He looks so remorseful? (couldbt think of a better word) on the second panel even with so little facial features..
Can't wait for more!

Laura (Guest), June 16th, 2010, 7:56 am

(Awww, voting rocks)

Poor poor Melanie. :(

And man, Patrick! I'm glad it's turned out like this. He's awesome after all, just needs to take it easy with his emo tendencies.

Amazing page Mr Twist!

Wow, this is beautiful really it is.

Stopped in to update everyone on the rankings. Last night when I posted my original post, TWC had Pictures of You listed at 55. Now at the time of this posting, PoY has jumped 5 spots and is teetering at #50. The nearest comic is climbing back fast though, and we will have to wait to see what happens on that poll next.
As for webcomicz.com, PoY is still holding on to the #4 spot like it is no body's business.
Good job in the voting everyone, let's spread the word of this comic and see the numbers climb.

TacoTotes, June 16th, 2010, 11:57 am

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. This is very touching--I'm glad Patrick (at least doesn't seem to) won't go all "I told you so" on her. Poor thing.

jd_singer, June 16th, 2010, 3:56 pm

Melanie's face is inexplicably beautiful in that fifth panel.

And Patrick just got much more likeable to me. Thanks for the relief.

vitaldose, June 16th, 2010, 4:56 pm

Okay I have yet to cry during this whole thing, but, well, I'm sniffling here!

Amazing work.

NicoleW (Guest), June 16th, 2010, 5:01 pm

Another gorgeous strip. I know Patrick can be a pompous ass sometimes, but hey, so can I. I still like him.

Redcrow (Guest), June 16th, 2010, 10:04 pm

Patrick did the right thing! Yays!


That's because most films and tv shows and comics are written by tools.

This is way I spend 10 times the time on individual media like this than on the steaming platters of shit they call entertainment.

youngcannibals, June 16th, 2010, 10:36 pm

You should be referred to as the Bard of the Internet. Nice panel arrangement, too.

Jodie (Guest), June 16th, 2010, 11:56 pm

ahahahahahahaomg someone has to make an avatar of patrick's face on panel2

i'm sorry laughter is not appropriate now but i couldn't help it

reidavidson, June 17th, 2010, 12:38 am

Panel 2 out of context makes it look like he walked in on Melanie and Kara doing naughty things... >.>

Guest818 (Guest), June 17th, 2010, 1:09 am


First the Andy/Patrick/Alexander love triangle and now brother/sister/girlfriend threesomes? This comic is AWESOME! :P


yayness (Guest), June 17th, 2010, 2:27 am


(found the voting picture)

LeyLegbreaker, June 17th, 2010, 3:42 am

yayness, glad you found it hehe.
And Yay, POY is on 48th place! Going to keep it up, I bet we can manage better xD

Marsac (Guest), June 17th, 2010, 5:18 am

Loving it
Just found this comic last week and I'm so sad to be caught up, can't wait for the next page! Keep up the good work.

SharpSpoonful (Guest), June 17th, 2010, 3:29 pm



lol, but seriously, its good to see him come through for his sister.

mc3 (Guest), June 17th, 2010, 9:39 pm

Thats the way a big brother should be. It sucks knowing you were right, but You've got to be there for the little sis.
Great work. awsome drama. Just stright awsome. I'm not a long time reader. IK just found you about a week ago. You play on real life. I think all of use can find a little peace of our-selfs in every charictior you wight. And we all know some-one just like one of them.
You may not be the greatest artist around, but this is a web-comic, and your art matches youre stoy. it gets the point across. In fact, I'd say you do better then most at a web-comic. Man, keep it up,cause you've found the right way. I cant denie that you are a great story teller. in art, and in plot. you've got the perfect drama, and I think it's because you lived it. Dont get me wrong, here, cause the ability to understand people, then wright them in a comic, That's far beoned the norm, and it shows an understanding of how the mind works.

Keep it up! Mr twist works well for you!

Guest, July 5th, 2010, 6:25 am

This...made me cry. I don't think I've ever cried at a comic before.
The way you put across emotion is incredible.

TheVoicesTalkToMe, March 14th, 2012, 8:39 pm

More strings to pull! *Gasp*

Must read next page...

Amber Mint, May 31st, 2012, 8:12 am

Ah, I've been waiting to see this one for awhile, Patrick has finally shown her some kindness :D
