A Girl & Her Shadow

There's something under the little girl's bed. It likes to play hide-and-seek and it's always hungry. It's also her best friend.

Now includes The Story of a Lonely Girl, which is a story about someone telling a story.

@Peridork01: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed the story!

Hmm, that's one of the things that I didn't exactly define in the story, and so I honestly don't have a really solid answer for that.

But I think the old owners still have the memories of Thing, but they just stop thinking about it. Rather than saying they remember or don't remember Thing, it's just that at some point other things in their life became more important, and so they don't have any reason to think about Thing any more, or look back on their memories of it.

It probably has something to do with Thing being magical/supernatural, because it's not quite a normal level of forgetting or moving on from an old friend. I also think that if someone were to ask an old owner "Hey, remember when you told me that your best friend was a whiny cat-eating shadow monster?" the owner would be able to remember Thing, but might not be able to decide if it were real, or something they made up and told themselves stories about until it seemed as if it were real.

So it's kind of a vague area. Hope that makes sense!

Happy Halloween! Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed The Story of a Lonely Girl.

If you'd like to see more of my work, you can read my currently running comic, Maria, here on SmackJeeves, on Tapastic, and on Tumblr! I also have an artblog here.

Note: I don't really decide on anything until I've got it down on paper (uh, pixels), so even I don't know if that's a monster wearing a girl suit or a girl with a half-digested monster inside her.

This story is not a real one. It is a fake one. None of the things you will read in this or the previous or following pages ever actually happened.

End of disclaimer.

Halloween Special!
So, here's something I've been working on off and on since last summer. I'll be uploading the rest of the pages every twelve hours, so the last page will go up at 6 P.M. on Halloween. I hope you enjoy it!

This is what happens when Andrea lets the little girl decide what to play.
It's been two and a half years since A Girl & Her Shadow wrapped up and yet you people keep coming and reading it and adding it to your favorites. So here is a thank-you for all of you, those who read from the beginning in February 2012, and those of you who found it later. Seeing the number of fans go up is encouraging.

I'm working on a short one-shot set in the same universe as A Girl & Her Shadow, but featuring an entirely different cast. I was planning on releasing it here in October last year, actually, but I got busy and had to put it on the back burner to avoid getting behind on Maria. But things are calming down now, so hopefully I'll get to work on it again soon. It's called The Story of a Lonely Girl, and I hope that when it comes out you'll read it and enjoy it!

If you're reading Maria, let me know how you like it! It's barely off the ground - although there are sixty-some pages, we haven't even made it out of the introductory chapters - and it's quite different in style and content, but I'm hoping that some of the elements that made A Girl & Her Shadow enjoyable have carried over to it.

Thank you again, for reading and for adding A Girl & Her Shadow to your favorites!
