    I foresee a problem with the show.

  2. Holly says:

    AHH! So cute!

  3. Kelly Anne says:

    Okay, wait, wait. She was in Maryland, what, a day?

    • Hailey says:

      …more or less. According to my timeline, the battle was on a Friday. Charlie left Tuesday night, stayed Wednesday and most of Thursday, and left Thursday at night/Friday in the early morning.

      …she’s easily bored? Frankly, I never quite managed to work out my personal issues with several aspects of the ending, and that was one of them.

      • Kelly Anne says:

        Eh, I don’t much like Maryland, either. ;o)

      • Hannah says:

        I think you provided us with adequate reasons for her to come back.
        It wasn’t just that she was bored. You showed that with the letter, and the two brothers. She finally understands why Jeremy cares so much about this place.
        It’s not that she’s easily bored. She realized she made a mistake.
        Don’t beat yourself up.
        You have done an amazing job with this comic. I read a lot of web comics and this one is in my top five. I’m really picky, so you have to be a good storyteller to keep my interest. (And the artwork has to be amazing, which it certainly is.)
        No only have kept my interest, but I’ve fallen in love with your characters and your story.

        You have good storytelling instincts. Trust them.
        And congratulations on the first story arc coming to a close. That’s quite an accomplishment.

        I agree with everything Hannah said. For whatever it’s worth, I’ve spent the last 6 years working on a physics ph.d because I thought I wanted a cutting-edge research job, only to discover that I don’t like research that much and all I really want to do is find a small college where I can teach the undergrads neat things about Faraday’s law and the motion of point masses. :) Those research jobs require a monastic devotion to the discipline, and it really takes a certain type of personality to enjoy it. If you realize that you are not that type of person, it’s best to get the hell out fast, because research jobs are a *lot* of work. And yet, in graduate school in the sciences, the profs make it sound like research positions are the only prestige jobs out there, and to do anything less is to fail to live up to your potential (or some such). That’s probably true at the undergrad level in the humanities too. Any history majors out there?

  4. Maia says:

    Hmmm…is Charlie proposing marriage, or just that it may be a good idea to go on with the reenactment? ;) Either way, I love it!

    • Mika says:

      One more thing. I do believe that there are a lot of trvael insurance web-sites of reliable companies than enable you to enter your journey details and acquire you the quotes. You can also purchase this international trvael insurance policy on-line by using your own credit card. All you have to do should be to enter your current trvael specifics and you can begin to see the plans side-by-side. Merely find the system that suits your financial budget and needs then use your bank credit card to buy the item. Travel insurance on the internet is a good way to do investigation for a respected company to get international trvael insurance. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

  5. Shoe says:

    D’awww!!! I know I keep saying that, but, MAN is this ridiculously cute.

  6. Seanan says:

    Aww ^^ The first panel makes me think of Simba and Nala XD

  7. Redd says:

    They still haven’t remembered. What’s the next page going to be? Them trying to make up an excuse to the TV camera’s and the governor? xD

    Also, Charlie looks so different with short hair! o_0

  8. Wynne says:

    Heee…. I can finally die happy now. And Stephen’s right. They’ll probably have to make something up about their characters being brothers or whatnot.

  9. HermioneGrangerTwin says:

    First panel = love.

    The end. :)

    Can’t wait for tomorrow!

  10. Evelyn says:

    Does that count as bribery? ^^;

  11. Wynne says:

    Coming back (from the future ooOOOoo), my grandmother used to essentially make Charlie’s argument – better to have a higher position at a smaller institution, so you don’t have to deal with all the craziness and ladder-climbing that goes on in the bigger places, but you’re still on equal footing and get to hob nob with the people who do.
