    Oh well I'll start it then!

    The story comes to an end and it seems the GK might have outlived his usefulness!? Those last 4 words are so chilling and such an immensely powerful way of setting up another week waiting for the days to pass before the next mind rush.

    I think I'm going to be Crossed myself by the end of this! Just from the tension week to week.

    Dammit I knew that would happen - I've been double crossed :)

    "Go home, my love".

    Never before have I read something that was both heartwarming and pants-shitting terrifying.

    I'm worried Shaky's going to kill her.
    I don't know, but the patterns this comic makes I would bet Shaky is going to kill her.
    He always does the thing no one wants him to.

    Zezin, I like your thinking. It would be just like Shakey to kill the nun right after (or while) learning that she somehow resisted the Crossed virus.

    Or she's got something indescribably horrible in store for him. We still don't know under what circumstances they parted ways... and she didn't tell the Gameskeeper...

    This is some of the most epic storytelling I've ever read, and I've read everything. Well, a lot.

    I think (I hope) we are going to close on a positive note, one where roles are reversed. We'll see a non-crossed fucking the brains out of a crossed. And rather than being a painful, torturous affair, it will be sweet ecstacy for both, the best sex they've ever had. The end.

    An Interlude would be especially cruel with that final line. I'm reminded how the scariest point is not when he opens the door, it's when he's just about to open the door.

    I cannot believe a webcomic project turned out this good. Way better than Badlands and up there with some of Garth Ennis's best work (which is probably the highest praise I can give). Avatar, and us, hit the jackpot when they signed Si on for the project!

    In retrospect, it should be to the surprise of no-one that Shaky helped wreck it for everyone, again.

    At this point, his amazing good luck in getting out of London seems to have resulted in hundreds of people losing their lives at last count. If he'd died in London, there would have been at least a better chance of both Cava and the Drift Fleet surviving, as he wouldn't have brought you know who with him.

    @ Zezin & BigSven - When reading your comments about the idea of Shaky killing the nun, I thought to myself... "Ha. Just like a Romeo & Juliet tragedy. That'd be very Shakespearian." Then I remembered what Shaky's nickname is short for and I added, "OH SHIT."

    @ Shan - Went to my comic shop last week and picked up the first three volumes of WYWH and began re-reading it from the beginning. You were absolutely right when you spoke of the increased entertainment value of revisiting the beginning of the story, knowing what we all know now. SO much foreshadowing and one-liners that, in retrospect, I now realize are brilliantly and subtly worked into the narrative. It really is a treat. Re-read value is so very high with this story -- a sign of a great narrative, for sure.

    Also... Jesus Pants Shitting Christ what in the hell is happening back on Cava right now?!

    Jesus Pants Shitting Christ,

    What in the?

    Hell is happening on Cava.

    ...probably.
