Author Notes

11th Sep 2021, 12:00 PM When in doubt—just take a step back for a bit.

You can’t run from yourself Evan. I’ll just keep saying that from behind the fourth wall like DLK always screams at Kairo ༼ ಥل͟ಥ ༽ maybe that will help me write all this anguish


11th Sep 2021, 12:03 PM Poor kid.
11th Sep 2021, 5:18 PM You said it (;•͈́༚•͈̀)
11th Sep 2021, 12:57 PM Evan definitely seems worried for his sister, but just imagine if he went through that wall in a panic for Kat's safety, only to find she's having a tea party with stuffed animals.
11th Sep 2021, 5:19 PM Kat does have a lot of stuffed animals X’D
13th Sep 2021, 1:20 AM Oh boy, we going to see them soon?
13th Sep 2021, 6:49 AM Before too long we'll probably see at least a few of them--I should probably figure out which ones to draw lol
11th Sep 2021, 3:06 PM Yep. That was "enough" for the day. And the art on this page was very good (not that the other art isn't). Is this the first time we've seen Evan go through a wall?
11th Sep 2021, 5:20 PM Aw, thank you! And no, this isn’t the first time. Evan walked through the wall a couple of times in chapter 1, and in chapter 3 I believe he walked through a door. The effects for the blue misty stuff may have evolved though.
11th Sep 2021, 3:35 PM Forget combat training, what this kid needs is a counselor. Shame there don't seem to be any certified psychologists around who also happen to be super mutants.
11th Sep 2021, 5:22 PM Right? And even so, The SP probably could get Evan some kind of counsellor (they’d have to screen them first) but this is something Evan has adamantly refused. He won’t even talk to his family about this stuff. We’ll get more into this topic in the story later on.
11th Sep 2021, 3:50 PM Hmmm I wonder, will he run to his sister for comfort, or do the opposite: actively avoid her to reduce the chances of accidentally injuring her.

11th Sep 2021, 4:08 PM uuuu nuuuu I'm a bad influence on Sharose!!!! not gonna stop me from screaming at Kairo though...
Hey Evan... Slow down, take a deep breath, then go in there and give your sister a hug. Thinking about this is hard, but it's a lot less hard when you do it in a safe space...
now go in there and HUG!!!!
great page, Sharon, I can palpably feel the anguish.

11th Sep 2021, 5:27 PM Good influence, good!! It’s all good :)

Aw man will Evan listen to us?? Stay tuned : O

Thanks man, I’m glad it comes across clearly.
12th Sep 2021, 12:53 AM In the second panel, it almost looks like he's running through Kairo.

Just a question, since I'm not sure if you addressed this before, but does Evan's intangibility power deplete his energy the same way Kat's powers do? Could he just stay intangible all the time if he wanted?
12th Sep 2021, 7:37 AM He is!

Evan’s powers are not physically draining at all, at least not the intangibility. To him it’s as easy as breathing. The only aspect of Evan’s ability that does have some physical side effects (that I can think of) is his X-Ray vision. Evan can use it fairly easily, but it strains his eyes to do it too much, and he could get a splitting headache from it.

Oh and actually, now that I think of it—Evan’s defensive trance state could exhaust him if he was stuck that way for a while. It’s partially because he tends to freak out afterwards, but also because in that state he moves even faster and hits harder than he would normally, and he can’t feel the effects of it until he’s back to normal, which can be ouchie…
13th Sep 2021, 10:40 PM Evan has x-ray vision too? I guess being able to move through walls (and people!!!) negates the need to be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
14th Sep 2021, 5:50 AM Haha I guess Evan is pretty OP--but he doesn't have super-strength either, or a green rock that makes him faint XD
25th Sep 2021, 5:55 PM Dang really like how you do the effects and emotions for even here!

Poor guy doesn't want to hurt his sister , on top of all the other stuff that's happened to him, bringing this into his awareness is heavy for him D:
25th Sep 2021, 6:04 PM Thank you!

Yeah, it’s a perfect way to tip the already shaky little tower :’(
26th Sep 2021, 10:43 AM Yeah, horribly upset the young messed-up superpowered guy. What could go wrong.
26th Sep 2021, 11:13 AM *laughs nervously*
19th Oct 2021, 11:20 AM I think he really earned the Bluemist name at this point... now he deserves some happiness.
19th Oct 2021, 4:19 PM Totally!
