Turns out! Heheh. Sometimes thrashing a random stranger doesn't make you feel better. So weird, right?

Wow, I really like this page!! I really like the lineless stuff going on in the last panel and I REALLY like Jaunt putting all of this in the terms of feeling good about himself :')
And although I'd like it if Kurt was okay, this is the logical choice for his character to make. Rest in peace, bugfriend.
This page had a pretty interesting effect on me, I'm not sure what to even label these feelings as, but I just... really love where you went with it, composition-wise and story-wise!! I like "what a strange experience." I dunno how to articulate this!! This page just feels super professional and you did a really good job!!!

Woah D:

I really didn't expect anyone to really like it so much, I guess :') Not to be self-depreciating or anything but I was very unhappy with how this whole thing turned out, it felt really weak to me.

I guess you've helped dispel some of my fears, though, thank you very much :D As always I'm super glad when you like a page, hehe!

Am I getting it wrong or did Jaunt REALLY expect Kurt to beg him or show hesitation?
Wow! Would not have guessed! If it is true.
I get him though. This battle happened because Kurt had issues but in the end there was no reward to win, no real stakes.

He thought that Kurt might change his mind about his whole self-sacrifice clause with the knowledge that Jaunt was not just a smarter shambler, he was actually an agent of an elder god.

Discovering that the human he murdered earlier wasn't there made the frivolous nature of the fight really stand out, so he regrets it now for sure. :')

Oh well, he tried!

Just look at him. "I lost a fight! I know, I'll have a drink.. I'll get into a fight, I'll..!"

Sometimes even when we win, we lose...

I'm still favoring the humans over the monsters, MNP. :P

Eh, if he impressed the onlookers enough, maybe they'll buy him drinks in celebration of his victory.

Bright side of darkness and all that.

Haha, maybe!

He's probably not in the mood for celebration, whatever happens :)

Kudos for the textless second panel. Sometimes it is best to let the art tell its own story. And that panel conveys a lot without needing a single word of dialogue.

I'm super glad it had the effect I was going for :) I wanted an isolated, silent panel to represent the discomfort and silence of the situation.

I love how what Jaunt says in the last panel is literally what he's doing... It's not really a figure of speech.

Is it me or do I find the ending for this extremely sad? I mean he is just standing up to his beliefs but I don't want Jaunt to get hurt either.

It's not happy :(

Jaunt is sort of coming to terms with the emotions that come with becoming sentient. He's adjusting to loss, and just learned the hard way that starting fights doesn't make anything better.
