Just finished reading through this. This is probably one of the best things I've ever read. Completely blew me away...

I'll be on the lookout for more of your stuff. Fan for life.

Since when do kids get baptized then? Like he seems like 10 years old already.

@Linn: Thanks for reading! I always appreciate your comments. Later down the line, I have a brief epilogue planned :) Until then, it is up to your interpretation!

Wait did both die, did one die?
Did they die? Or both survive? Maybe a cliffhanger who's supposed to leave us more questions than answers? Either way its been a wonderful comic!
Especially this page illustrates their relationship very well. I will miss it dearly.
Its awesome you finished your comic, i got the same thing with my first comic where i feel it could've been better but one learns so much from doing them! Seeing this is your second comic i'll point out i've not seen much flaws in it and i think its been wonderful so don't be too hard on yourself.

The End
I can't believe today's finally the day! I began writing Petrichor at the tail end of 2013 and developed the comic as my senior project at SCAD. In January of this year, I completed the final pages and celebrated finishing my second graphic novel. Stumbling through this messy story was a huge learning experience. In retrospect, I can see how problematic this whole thing is, but I take pride in finally finishing something I set out to do. I'm going to miss updating a webcomic!
So I hope you've all enjoyed reading. You can follow my current work on tumblr (rugops.tumblr.com). I have another book in the works that should be completed in 2018, so keep an eye out for that!
Thanks for sticking with me. I'll leave you with this Petrichor-themed playlist as a grand finale: http://8tracks.com/lisa-naffziger-930/petrichor

It's important to flesh out a character's backstory when putting together a larger narrative. This helps avoid any inconsistencies and aids in understanding their motivation. It is a strange realization, however, that a large amount of this personal information will not be revealed during the duration of the story. While I have DeRenne and Ariadne's full relationship history scoped out, Petrichor only highlights a small portion of it. Maybe someday in the future I'll put together some small companion stories.

@Linn: Oh, that drama.
It's hard to pick a side :|

Oh wow, that drama.
Honestly he was the one who kind of.... Wanted to do those wishes for her and fullfill them.
Its a bit dickish to then claim she's been using him when she wasnt even that cool about the idea in the first place. I guess hiding wanting to take those pills as well is a dick move but again its no reason to blow up.
Sorry man, i'm on her with this one. Though she's done too I know that's been pretty bitchy, but in this case lets stay on the subject. I love how people pull out old stuff from the past in a new arguement that had absolutely zero to do with it XD

Well shit. I wonder where this will lead to.
I had to google those pills, im guessing she's going to take them for...something that's not so nice.

@Linn: It's sad, but true. I'm more likely to be harassed if I'm by myself/with a group of girls than if I'm with guys :|
