@RandomEgg: Yeah! Kalo's sound powers help him tune up. He wishes there were some instruments to play around with at Croft but there aren't.... he really misses his guitar and keyboard.

just me being the musician nerd that I am, it would be interesting if Kalo developed perfect pitch as a result of being able to sense and manipulate sound so well. also it would help him being a musician

@Deimos: i'm glad to hear that your stay was restful, as it's supposed to be, and i hope that you're in a better situation now.

my stay, and what i witnessed of a lot of my fellow patients, was not great, and in talking with a lot of people, you're lucky if you land in a genuinely nice facility. i don't really talk about the details because i don't want to dump a heavy load onto strangers lmao. so i let it speak through the comic instead. and you're right, the comic is a dramatization, so some of the cruelty is cranked up, but at the same time... the amount of it that has a stable base on reality is Worrisome.

@spiremint: I've been wondering since the FLOOD notes if Croft has been inducing Kalo's nightmares, and possibly other's to make him more susceptible to whatever the hell the FLOOD is.

Croft, dude, REAL hospitals have patients, not subjects. Maybe drop the kind control too?

I find myself wondering how much of this was inspired by your actual experiences in a mental health facility because it seems like your experiences were far more dire than mine. I know facilities vary (and of course this is a dramatization, not biographical), but the suggested depersonalization and isolation seems cruel.

That said, I checked myself in voluntarily and 72 hours of rest and peace away from a full load of AP classes and constant homework, unforgiving extra-curriculars, peers, and my family's toxicity - it was a huge relief. Only thing I missed was webcomics. My experience may not have been typical, or maybe anything was better than real life. I did have access to the phone at the facility, and was allowed visitors.
