My desire to make a short comic about these two is intensifying..!
I very much love their interaction. And I loved writing more about WOC through these flashbacks! Once I knew a little bit of her background, I thought it important to share it, and add more character to this person who later on appears all-wise and all -loving... that wasn't always the case!
Manisa, let's call her by her name, definitely had her period of depression and self-doubt, self-hate, you name it. Alice definitely helped her out of it, but it was by Manisa's own will, in the end, that she could turn the page for a better tomorrow.
The 'random' incident that Alice talks about, with the seemingly mad woman, was something that had happened to me at around that time. Same with Alice, I wondered, weeks later, if I could have helped that woman in any possible way.
--> This is a rerun of the finished webcomic Go Get a Roomie! You can find these two strips in the old archive >here<!
