Bernard was a very awkward looking child.

- Wordy page is wordy.
Sorry about that.
Anyway, looks like we know who one of Lily's former clients is now. (Even if she didn't have to bully him for psych evaluation.)

This is about 2 days late.
Still gonna try for another page on Saturday, but Sunday might prove to be more likely. Life stuff, blah, blah, we're tired of your excuses, guy. Sorry.

From the one panel of Bernard's dream compared to Lily's exploration of Chris's dream earlier, there's some differences... (Lily's in glourious technicolour... and Bernard can see her) We'll get to why... eventually.

And while this stuff happened five years ago, the picture with Bernard and his parents is from when he was 12. He's 32.

Think that's everything I wanted to point out here.
Welp, thanks for readin' folks! Hope you enjoy!

- @constant_boredom: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it and think so. Pfff, It's very typical of Chris. He's just like "Oh, okay, sure, whatever, please let me go back to work now, I'm done with you crazy people."

@eishiya: That would've been a lot more interesting than his story, hahaha. I thought that the age around when he lost them might've been a bit unclear due to the picture. >__< At least it wasn't so unclear that it made no sense though.

I'm glad it was readable. :) Thank you!

@P!K: He's sexy!? Mmm maybe it's his lack of pants or decency? XD I'm glad you enjoy him, haha.

@Angel: That's a good question.
I have Lily's backstory all thumbnailed out already, and have since summer. Originally, her backstory was to be chapter two. Instead of Bernard, there was another fellow from Lily's past that we'd have met. (She likes to surround herself with older, bespectacled gentlemen, apparently.) Instead of going back in time to show that though, I decided to move things further with Chris first.

Lily doesn't really talk much about herself, she doesn't grasp the concept that maybe people can understand you better if you explain yourself first before trying to get people to trust you based on nothing. Bernard, while... pantsless and sleeping on a couch, understands human interaction more and decided "Hey, maybe telling this guy an actual reason why I believe this stuff might be better than trying to cut to the chase here", so that's why we got his first. :D

While more information about why and how Lily does what she does will be revealed gradually over the course of this and the next chapter, I'm not really sure when I'll be able to work her actual backstory in. Since most of it is based around her tattoo, I am thinking maybe chapter 4 at the soonest.

@mildtarantula: But that would require effort on his part! Aw, gosh, thank you. I wasn't sure how it it ended up looking after everything. I'm glad you think it looks nice. :)

@Stella: Thanks! Yeah! It was supposed to be a creepy dream. The crowd doesn't stand out as much as I wanted them to because the speech bubbles coverin' most of them, but I'm glad it still looked creepy! And hee, nope. Lily's just wearin' a big sleep shirt there. :D
Maybe that's why Bernard and Lily get along so well together. Her sleep shirt does come down low enough that it's not like she's flashing everyone though.

I actually like the wordy-ness for this page. Bernard's story is really interesting; I find it so funny that, after everything that's happened and that he's learned, Chris doesn't look the least bit intrigued LOL

Before I read your explanation, I thought his family died when he was young (didn't notice the different glasses) and Lily came into his life around the same time ( he would've been using Usenet, heh). And that would mean Lily hasn't aged in 15-20 years and that would have been very interesting in itself.

But I think I like the more mundane explanation better.

The page is wordy but it's readable. I like how you broke up the next in the second panel, I never thought to do that. I always just think one bubble = one blob.

And when do we get Lily backstory that explains how she does all this!

Love that dream panel. Lily pops out so much from the rest of it. It looks like a pretty creepy dream. Btw, she looks in there as if she was wearing just her panties ^^ or does she wear some skin colored pants?
