I noticed with A Fatal Error instead of telling a story straight in progression you often jump from one point in a story to another then return to something that correlates with that scene currently happening. Which I must say is genious. You give the story more suspense and energy just by doing that and I gotta say it's mesmerizing to see it so greatly pulled off. My question is what inspired you to do that? How'd you come up with a story structure like that. Its Very interesting and I love it!
Oh my gosh, just, thank you, oh wow what a compliment!! ^///^ It makes me extremely pleased to know you think it’s being pulled off well! I’ll be honest, some days I feel more anxious about it than others, but seeing people respond in a way that I was either hoping for or that exceeded my expectations really keeps my morale up. :’)
I’ve always been a fan of non-linear storytelling (when it works, sometimes it just doesn’t or a more linear format just fits better) but I can definitely say that two of my favorite UT AU comics, Echotale by @yoralim and Handplates by @zarla-s, were what inspired me to commit to telling this story in the way that I am. I love how, in their stories, isolated events can have an exceptionally big impact on other aspects throughout the progression of the story. There’s not a wasted panel or page, all the little details seem purposeful but effortlessly integrated, and all the separate pieces -no matter when they’re introduced- line up seamlessly. Even all the fun and lighthearted bits and extras can lead into a better insight to the main story!
I just appreciate how they didn’t only develop a story, but an experience as well. And that’s what I’m aiming for, too :)
