Your teacher instincts or habits are kinda twisted. But I see how it's so YOU! You refuse to give us the information or confirm big things but you get joy out of making us think broadly and notice detail. Cruel. Truly. But hey, we're thinking hard at least. Heck, all I've had on my mind since yesterday was this comic, sifting though ideas and crumbling in pain because it's all guessing and hoping and I'm rambling--
Well, I actually don’t think of it as ‘teacher instincts or habits’ - I’m an artist/storyteller first, and a teacher second. I’m worried that people are going to start chalking it up to ‘Xedra’s a teacher and doing teacher-y things’ instead of ‘Xedra’s telling a story and she’s doing storyteller-y things’.
So if anything, I prefer you think of my storytelling instincts/habits are kinda twisted, if you please :)
But anywho, your feelings are right, valid, and beautiful! “Sifting through ideas and crumbling in pain because it’s all guessing and hoping” is a fantastic way to put it! It’s so accurate and I’m glad you’re having the feelings that you’re having! I’m sure there are others who feel the same as you, and others who feel very different from you.
Let those feelings enhance your experience with this comic!
