So, despite my reluctance, I decided to accept this challenge. Inspired by one of the films directed by the American filmmaker John Landis, I drafted a storyboard and started to draw a sequel, which I called See You Next Wednesday.
To make you salivate about what's to come, here's a sneak peak:
Update: I want to thank a Reddit user who pointed out a typo in the text above. Thank you! I love you, redditers, despite all your hatred.
Esse seu comentário sobre uma continuação da historia "I Will Survive", que você postou acima, não sei se vc lembra de min e do meu comentário, que muitos também ficariam pedindo uma possível continuação ou reconciliação dos dois. hehehe
I guess I'll just do that: enjoy.
Not to sound hipster about it, I support your choice and can understand wanting to give attention to each option, but only if it's your desire to do so and not to just stop people from complaining. You can't please everyone and trying to will likely result in pleasing no one. The idea of it being stand alone and showing how sometimes things don't work out and it's not always a happy ending, while also making both characters sympathetic in a rather taboo subject made it stand out; your conviction as a creator is admirable. It doesn't matter if I LIKED the ending, we shouldn't always need to LIKE what happens in stories; not all stories can be happy endings. I'm not trying to be a pessimist, I love things turning out well and happy for all but we shouldn't get so complacent with happy endings that we feel that us not liking an ending is something inherently wrong. No one should like the ending of this story...that's the point IMO.
Again, this is your choice and I'd never say no to more art from you. Even if you are choosing to do this because you are tired of hearing complaints, that's your choice to make just do what makes you happy.
or am i wrong?
hope someone can enlighten me bevore i start imagine things.
By the way, sorry for this very late response!
I don't mind the idea of a sequel.
As someone whose biggest issue with I Will Survive was how it ended, I think the fairest thing is to reserve judgement until I see what the sequel is going to be. I might hate it, I might like it, I might be ambivalent again. But I don't know today.
Now for some speculation, which is usually not accurate but I enjoy it anyway: that could be either Bonnie Hopps or Nick's mother behind them, but if it's the latter I'm guessing Mrs. Wilde is indeed dead and it is her ghost watching over the pair. Her being dead also fits because maybe that's why they seem to be in a graveyard; Nick was visiting her grave and Judy knew he would be there. And maybe that's what the title means: Nick tends to visit his mother's grave on Wednesdays and he always ends by saying, "See you next Wednesday". And maybe at the end of this, Nick walks away from Judy without getting back together with her, but he says "see you next Wednesday", ambiguously implying he will see her again and so leaving hope for the future.
Borba have a knack for doing the unexpected
Thanks for your comment!
Hang in there! Don't let all these haters get to you.
