Aww! This was a beautiful short story! So much emotion! I'm happy this ends as it does! :)

@SamJ: I drew all the pages in pencil on paper, and added the shades much much later digitally and gave it that sepia hue.

did you draw these in pencil and added the background in the last pannel, or is everything done digitally? either way, it looks awesome

this sketchy style, it's beautiful! yeah I'm jealous as fuck, but honestly, you're amazing. I adore the last panel, the way it fades into each other... It's unbelievable

Nice timeless message there, hell might be other people as the saying (and the werewolf bigots! :P) suggests, but paradise can be as well.
It's great to see him having found his paradise, even if it wasn't so much a place as a person. Something we all hope for I think.

Also really good to see a happy end every once in a while. <3
Great job, you two.
As for sequels, I think it would spoil the message. Some things are good precisely because they are short and concise.
I do however think that the world it is set in could be an interesting one.

We all now want more! But I think it's perfect right where it is. But if you did keep on going I would read it for sure!
Only thing I have to say it was to short for my liking but the more I think about story the more I fall in love with it. You did a wonderful job!

I'm sorry, it ends here, but we couldn't possibly tell their whole life story from here on. Especially not since this was planned as a shortstory to begin with.
Consider it not as an ending, but a wonderful beginning for the two of them :)

Q////Q That's mean... perfect ending but... mean!! >__>

snow crystal is right. I'd looove. to read a sequel of this... even if this ending has a deeper meaning... I just don't want it to be over. Nope. Not gonna accept this. û__u

ANYWAY: You two did a reeeally great job. The story was addicting. The art was beautiful and kinda... don't know how to say this right but "powerful"...
Besides: I want to see you next year on the GC in Cologne. So be there so that I can buy stuff and stalk you and so on. (Haha. I don't intend to be creepy, really. ^w^" )

... I think at the moment the grief that it's over is stronger than the happinees about a sweet ending... goodness. This story is far from over; in fact, this is just the beginning of something great and adventurous and interesting... that makes the fact even sadder that you two stopped here :( Very sad indeed... I would have liked to read a lot more about those two adorable characters.

Well, yeah, maybe he has never learned (or forgotten again) how to form words; but... talking can happen this way, too :) And this scene is so sweet it nearly makes me cry... OH THE SWEETNESS... I am so happy right now, for both of them. *sniff*

Yup. He WAS scared. Seems like he didn't have it easy, either... poor thing :/
At least now they both have someone to talk to.
