- You want that, Cat? Let's start by not being the same stiff-necked blockhead that you were when you went to the bunker. Ignoring the advice of a hospital full of experts might not be the dumbest thing you've ever done, but it has to be right up there. ><

Wow, Hjels, Cat's body in Panel 3 is horrifying. Did you use references, or just your imagination?

- @Delta-v: I did set out to look for references, but a google search like that brings a lot of miserable fates to your screen, so after a while I decided to just goole the picture of a skeleton, and put some skin on top of that.

Same thing for her surgery scar. I started out doing some research on what that would look like, but it became too much. So in the end, I remembered that a character in Battlestar Galactica suffered a similar injury, and they showed his scar. So I just decided I'd copy that, and hope it was accurate. :)

- Christ, Catherine's pain is palpable, especially with her specific, eloquent, and tragic descriptions of what she's going through. She seems to have all but given up on surviving, b

- It's been a while since I've got the chance to drop in and comment, but I have to say, Hjels, I'm truly impressed. The storytelling, the subtle details, the character development; this is fantastic. Excellent work!

- Being in constant physical pain in and of itself can really crush a person's soul. Add to that all the emotional trauma, and I guess in a way it's kind of a miracle that she's even doing as well as she is.
But Cat really needs to listen to her doctor (therapist?). Whether she likes it or not, this person really cares about helping her. She needs to reach out.

- @NitztheBloody: She's struggling to pick herself up, that's for sure. And with two weeks left to go, things aren't looking good.

- @The_Hankerchief: You're too kind. I do feel the plates are spinning pretty well right now, bit we'll see what people think when they see how the chapter ends. Not everyone will be thrilled, let's say...

- @melaredblu: Reaching out to people is putting them in danger. She's lived with that for more than a decade at this point. It's second nature for her to pull away, to bat away any outstretched hand. It's just more difficult in the position she's in right now.

- @The_Hankerchief: I understand that we have you to thank for The new and improved October 20th, and I've been hoping to tell you face-to-face (so to speak), how much I appreciate what you did for Hjels, and how much your input has shaped what we have to read today. Thank you, thank you indeed. :)
