Wow, I really upset people with chapter 13... o.o s-sorry..
And I understand it was pretty unfair of me to leave you guys with such a cliffhanger. I hope this chapter is a little better that way.. ^^;

so, uhm, omg new record: 4 chapters in a week! yay..!
I need a break... XD or at least time to edit the chapters I already have, and write new chapters 'cos I'm still stuck on chapter 21.. :p




enjoy!

"-Spike had actually killed a person. Strangely, Sam found that he didn't care much about the death of Marco. Maybe because he just couldn't just bring himself to believe Spike was a murderer. He'd have to see it with his own two eyes, though he wasn't sure he really wanted to."

Spike and Sam are still children, half the time still not quite sure how the world works yet. With Spike being sexually, mentally, physically, and emotionally abused since the age of 4 or 6 years old (by the only family he has - adding more confusion and trauma quickly over time), he will naturally bottle his problems up as that was his only way to save himself from worsened abuse from his uncle Charles. Killing Marco scared Spike shitless, but do you really think that after having someone rape you since you were little, living with that predator and facing the constant abuse everyday and keeping it all inside, that he is just going to just willingly announce to anybody that he killed somebody? His uncle would KILL him, or worse..

And as for Sam, he is still very much a young,happy,confused about life child. Suddenly he realises that he is actually in love with Spike, and doesn't understand his emotions and feelings. Worried about rejection from both Spike, his best friend, and his very loving father. And all the sudden he finds out from his best friend that they killed someone, and now that he knows about your feelings, Spike never wants to see him again, ever. Sam lived in a very healthy and happy environment for a child (as best as his father could do), so suddenly all these things are happening and as soon as he has them figured all out he gets rejected fairly hurtfully (but on Spike's side of the story, his reaction makes sense, seeing as his uncle threatened him if he ever fell for anybody but him. And of course having these things done to Spike against his own will almost everyday will make him have a distorted view on homosexuality), it all crumbles apart in front of Sam in seconds. All these things probably weigh on Sam a lot, and as what seems to be Sam developing depression, Sam probably won't feel the need to talk about something that he doesn't want to even think about let alone tell someone.

So since they haven't told anybody yet (as of this chapter), it makes sense nobody has addressed it yet.

I will start by saying that I am truly in love with your work. Your book as well as your art have touched me so greatly. 

 One thing I would like to mention is in this chapter, before you include it in your finished work, I would like to suggest you change "humans" to "people". It is a miner change and it doesn't change the meaning of Saunders speech, but I feel the change would open the story up a bit more. What I mean to say is that quite a few of your fans are highly appreciative of the Anthropomorphic Animal side of your work. I know you have expressed how the characters are human in the story but anthros in the comic, but making the change would just expand the imagination of the story for them a bit more.

Never be sorry for your art, if it be writing or if it be drawing, never be sorry. You did exactly what a good writer does, you dug into the hearts of your readers, you brought out their emotions. This is why you must publish, you are meant to be a writer, this book or the next, you can catch emotions like so few can. As I read your book, I felt strong senses of love, I felt hate, I got mad, I felt kozy, you tangled my emotions as if I were in the book. I've not read a book in years that made me feel like this one does. No... You've absolutely nothing to be sorry about, you are a perfect writer. When you words can strike the emotions of your readers deeply, you... Are a magician with words. 

There are lengths I would go to make this book happen.

I've sent you a little note just now, thanking you for the comments you've left me, because, as I said in that note, your comments meant a whole lot to me. Every kind word I get from my watchers/visitors really do mean a lot to me, but your comments moved me. And I wanna thank you, because your comments inspired me to wanna sit down and write the rest of the book, like, right now! So, thank you for that, thank you for your kind words, and thank you for writing those comments - I'm very thankful that you took the time to share your opinion, because it meant so much to me. :hug:

I am honored you appreciate my words so dearly, I am likewise thankful to you.  When I read your book I took some lessons from it. I gained a stronger open minded kindness inspired by your character Saunders. The character Spike has been an inspiration to assume less and care more, plus Spike teaches you how to listen. Sam... He teaches you to appreciate even the smallest glimmer of light in the darkest of situations. Sam also teaches the power of a strong and mutually loyal friendship, he teaches about genuine love and the lengths he will go for someone he dearly cares about. If I had to choose just one point to take from the story so far (and there are so many good ones), I would choose how one should never give up on someone they care about just because that someone gave up on them selves.

I am currently implementing portions of the goodness within your words into my own life, I am finding it to be much brighter already! I believe everyone has something good to teach, you have taught me some good values and for that Elise... I am thankful to you as well. Because of this story, I feel ready to increase efforts into locating and helping young people in situations such as Spikes and then help save them because I have the ability to. Though you write this story but it's based on a true reality, Charles exists in so many places on the world. I don't know, something just kind of clicked in my mind after reading; like a warm realization that there is so much more I can do to help. The difference is, now it seems more clear on just how I can. I want to answer those cries for help.  

May peace and increased happiness fill your life and whom ever you share your years with. You are sincerely welcome Elise!    

What you do matters. Thanks for the hug. ^_^ 

P.S. Your reply meant a great deal to me, you read so many good comments yet you replied to mine, that means a lot Elise.
