Nearly exactly two weeks ago I had a nightmare of a day where everything was super sucky. But then someone did something completely altruistic for me and it was so thoughtful that it kept me going til quitting time. Little good deeds by strangers (or non-strangers) can really make all the difference sometimes.
I really don’t like doing comics that are A) not based in reality and B) solely meant to move the plot forward, but this caps off the arc started at comic #99 so it was necessary. The next ~super serious~ storyline isn’t going to be for a while so I hope you got your fill of pathos this time around.
