Thief of Hearts

by Sachelarot
This is a revised and renewed version of my old comic,
"Thief of Hearts".
--------------------------------------------

Erik Coeur is a heart thief; an individual cursed by Death himself with a rotting heart. His only solution is to gather select hearts from victims in order to fill his prescription for a devilish apothecary, and Charlotte, an unfortunate victim of circumstance, is on his list! Her only salvation is to make a deal with Erik, but could his simple exchange for sanctuary lead to much more than she bargained for?

----------------------------------------------------
"Thief of Hearts", which was once written under my pen name "Surrealmasque", has undergone a massive rewrite.


I will warn you that I cannot guarantee that there won't be copious amounts of the following: gore, crude humor, mature situations, innuendo, and alcohol usage.

Thank you for reading!

They look more like siblings like that!

I'm looking forward to see what you've planned.
I was really happy with how this turned out! A major improvement from this page's first incarnation wayyy back in 2008...

Anyways, Charlotte, Brett and Erik together again after such a long time.

Brett has undergone a bit of a redesign, with medium brown hair (as opposed to blonde), and has been aged up quite a bit from his 12ish appearance to a high schooler. Charlotte's hair has become lighter colored and a little fuller, with more to her bangs (no more giant forehead. Muahaha), and is now in her new work uniform. And Erik's out of the high color jacket for once. Yayyy!
cool! had to rightclick and choose 'play' to make it work, but really neat
Prologue Complete!
Click the heart to activate it.

So yeahhhh it's not a super complicated animation or anything, but eh, I thought it would look cool. Also, I was totally going to put "Oh Glory" by Panic! At the Disco to play as the page slid up, because that is basically my 'dream theme' for this whole thing nowadays, but I don't want to get in trouble for using licensed music ~_~...

Anyways! Prologue Completed~! *fanfare*

I also went back and resized all of my pages up til now from a 600x960 ratio to 500x800. I figured that would look nicer... but I kept the bigger files, in case people want me to post that size again instead. We'll see how this works. (I can't tell if the text is too small this way? IDK. Work in progress.)

Anyways! Goal reached! Finished Prologue: The Wallflower before Halloween~!!!!
Non-Animated for the Mobile Folks
Since flash doesn't work for most mobile browsers, here's a "non-animated" version.
Dust to Dust
Yeahhhh a little bit of a nasty image...
but figured "I should probably show what happened to the keys!" before I forgot (he stuffed them in his pocket), and list in the comic (instead of just in comments...I have a bad habit of that), what the Heart Burn Threads kinda do...

And she died 2 pages ago, so she's not alive for the dissolve. Just... um... a little reassurance? Maybe?
Anyways, gruesome way to go....

And yeah, Erik likes to talk to himself a lot...
Heart Burn
So yeah, another use for the Heart Strings is the 'Heart Burn" feature, which is used for body disposal. After making the line re-attach to the corpse, a supernatural flame, started from a snap, will cause a small spark to descend the line to the vessel, burying it inside. After that, the corpse will quickly burn from the inside out, leaving only dust and no scorch marks.

Yeah, no 'heart attack' excuse this time.
It's too bad that Amy's gone, because now I can't draw her adorable freckles anymore. *sniffle*

Lovely heart she got, uh.. mean had!
Did no one teach him not to play with his food.....? XP
Edit Page
I realized that I uploaded the wrong version of this page!
Amy's dialogue is now fixed.
Yowch.
So I like this approach to exploring Erik hunting, versus his first incarnation... where his victim was already shown dead before he went after Charlotte. This time, Erik is active and shows one way he retrieves his 'ingredients", using his 'heart strings'. He does have a whole arsenal of harvesting tools, this one is just the simplest method(though it definitely doesn't tickle...).

Just a tidbit of trivia.
Poor poor Amy...
Lost her heart to the first man she ever danced with.

Don't forget to check the Thief of Hearts Tumblr for extra things, like the gallery and concepts!

I'm gonna break your heart an get away with murder.
You shoulda known from the start that it wouldn't last forever.
I cant control myself - I feel like someone else.
I'm gonna break your heart and get away with murder.

There's a mystery inside my head...
It was you dripping all in red.
Did I hurt you? let me make it safe an sound...
Can you feel me breathing down your neck?
Your just a perfect little human wreck.
But I like you... enough to destroy you, tear you down.

Being Productive
This is what happens when my online courses' website goes down... more pages.

Oh well, being productive is good, right?
Yeah, maybe it was a dumb idea for a person with a serious heart condition to go dancing about then go for a jog through a garden... Go figure.
