*slides into your dms* yes hello, I noticed you have Alone and Sublime on Connie's playlist (gr8 song, gr8 artist) and I was curious, as someone who also has it on a character's playlist, what it means specifically to/for Connie?
Oooh what a great question! The track order on Connie’s playlist is intentional and meant to sort of track the shift in her mindset over the years, and in my mind Alone and Sublime represents where she is around the first like, two thirds of PoF–feeling worn down, disconnected, and struggling to align herself with the people who should be in her corner or the things she’s supposed to be championing. In particular I was really struck by these lines the first time I heard the song:
I wonder, did they make me right? Aren’t I supposed to wanna fight For love? And life? Everything that people say is right?
It was actually one of the first songs I knew for sure was going on the new playlist.
Everyday that you wake up, you find a note on your nightstand. Each note is exactly the same. The note tells you simply to “Wake up. For us.” These four words start to appear everywhere: billboards, labels, store signs, etc.
I….I finally did it after a along ass time scrapping scenes
The lyric comic is based on a comment in the music video which was this: “This version sounds like she’s mourning the potential.”
The idea began from that, where a different color on your skin represents the love and affection you have for the person. If you don’t see your color on them, then your love is unrequited.
There is some elements of my GTA 5 AU in this comic hence the guns and stuff. Also fun fact: Wildcat’s convo with Vanoss hints to my Minicat comic that I made before. Wildcat knows what Vanoss is going through and he didn’t want his friend to suffer the same heartbreak like he did.
