Another brilliant installment in this series. Serious fetish genius here. Plus, I love the color palette chosen here.

This is a super nice series! 
I like how the scenes depicted in it are basically scenes that anyone who likes DiD would kill for haha
The whole concept of this story - people telling stories of things they've watched on TV basically - is really different! 
Definitely interested in seeing where you take it! :)

Thank you, that means a great deal coming from you.  I am trying (and am going to try) some different things, maybe even some stories without any bondage elements at all... just focusing on the 3 main characters.  For now though, I am definitely having fun making up the scenes and titles, etc.  But yes, definitely taking some liberties and exaggerating various elements to make these scenes a little more noteworthy!  I'm glad you like it all, and I hoe you will continue to enjoy it!  ;)

A delightful conceit! Much fun.

I figured out really fast that you were inventing the scenes, because Indian soaps are so conservative that they'd never show a woman in bondage who was half-undressed! But they do have some okay bondage scenes (I've got a few a video clips in my Archives).

Thank you very much, I'm glad to hear you like it.  I agree, the Indian culture might not have busty women half undressed, however, in the aim to be believable, I tried to frame Ali Aggarwal's role in "Breach" so the reader might assume she is an Indian-American actress in a US film (as I did not denote the origin of the film, and the combination of a more Western first name with a typically Indian surname).  And the "Chattingham Manor" scene is credited as a British export.  They can get a bit randy at times, I think.  :)  But I am very happy to hear you picked up on those little aspects and that it helps inform your enjoyment of the comic.  Thanks, and I hope you'll keep enjoying the series.

I thought "Chattingham Manor" must be a real TV series but when I searched for it online there were no mentions.  Quite disappointing, as I'd like to have seen the episode referred to.

It certainly isn't my intent to disappoint.  I will be adding a disclaimer to the comics to avoid any further confusion.  I hope that the scene was believable because 1. You wanted to believe it was real, and 2. Because it felt believable.  But this is all fiction.  In the way that the mafia is a real organization, but Tony Soprano is a fictional character.  Or, the film Almost Famous is inspired by Cameron Crowe's real life journey as a young rock journalist, but Stillwater was never a real band.  In some Hollywood movies, worlds blend together.  The scene in the Ocean's 11 remake when Brad Pitt's character, Rusty, teaches poker to actual celebrities playing themselves (eg: Holly Marie Combs, Joshua Jackson, etc.) comes to mind.  I considered trying to blend different elements like those just mentioned, but ultimately chose to imagine every aspect of this story.

Again, sorry to disappoint, I hope you will continue following the series.  And if it's any comfort, nobody probably wishes a scene like "Chattingham Manor" existed more than me!  :)

I'm still not certain what your goal is here, even as I appreciate the result. But these aren't real scenes, correct?

Correct, none of these titles or scenes are real.  I am going to add a disclaimer to avoid any further confusion.  My only goal is/was to create a story people will enjoy reading and following, but with the added enjoyment/assumption they also like bondage and would appreciate the backdrop of the unique, DiD community.  A majority of what has happened in the story thus far (because this is only the fifth "page") is just to introduce the 3 main characters, and present what they do, what they like, etc.  Despite the confusion, I do hope you're enjoying the comic!

I suppose I'm puzzled as to why you have people recalling vicarious events rather than ones they themselves were participants in. I would find the latter of considerably more interest. Your art and storytelling ability is, of course, beyond reproach.

This is a story about average people who collect DiD scenes from mainstream media; that is why, at this point in the story, they are "recalling various events rather than ones they themselves were participants in".  That's how I am trying to introduce these characters, and present their interests and commonality.  Again, I hope this sort of activity is relatable to people who look at my work, or at the very least, slightly appealing, because if nothing else, it allows me to create many different scenarios with women in bondage.  As I have said before, I've only done 5 pages.  I have several arcs planned for these characters and a general path I hope to steer the story as a whole, but it is very early in the story.  I can't guarantee you'll enjoy everything I do with the comic (or that I will even be able to get to it or finish it), but I can promise I am not planning on making every page a retelling of a fictional DiD scene that no one will ever be able to watch in real life (however, if people are horribly disappointed these scenes are not real, I take it as a compliment because it means I was able to create something in one panel that captivated someone else's imagination!).  That will be a huge part of this, but there are many different things I'd like to try and experiment with.

I will also point out I have referenced the same fictional actress and TV show in two different "pages".  This is important.  I know it all might feel arbitrary, but believe it or not, I am trying to set-up stories and make way for new characters and new points of view.  I can't promise it will all happen (you know, because time/life/work/etc), but if this were a real book, we'd barely be past page 12.  Don't get too far ahead of me!  I appreciate your input and I hope you'll continue enjoying the comics (if I have my way, I am positive all of these guys will be doing things down the road you would definitely approve of)!!

My apologies if I'm too critical. Posting a continuing narrative in irregular bits can be confusing. I certainly enjoy your work very much and look forward to each new post!

I cannot overstate how much I welcome and appreciate any and all criticism, especially honest and observant perspective such as your own, so thank you for that.  Thus, for people who take the time to leave a comment, I really want to limit any confusion which could effect their enjoyment of the comic.  You're right: "Posting a continuing narrative in irregular bits can be confusing", especially when it isn't even clear it is a continuing narrative.  But I know this is not a comic for everyone, so for those who connect with it, I feel like they're ready for anything and expect something a little different.  I am hoping I can keep their attention and make something fun and interesting for everyone.  So thanks, I am glad you're enjoying it, that means a great deal to me.
