The moral arguments this comic brings up are the best.

Yeah, that explains it.

And there's your answer, Rig.

Making up for lost time with an extra upload!
I'm wondering how Pace is going to take all this. He doesn't seem super receptive to the idea that deer can actually feel things like love and stuff, maybe as a way to avoid guilt for killing them or something? I'm glad your dog is ok, anyway!
I always mentally gave Deadwood a similar voice to the beast in OtGW but never considered it male or female
I'm glad your dog is okay!!

And it's so cool that they are having this conversation. I didn't expect it but it's these two that need to talk things through. And it might help them both.

It's a curious thing about names. I turned the names of dead pets into a sort of prayer, something to say in my head when I need them but grief definitely comes in many shapes and forms, including "just" withholding it from the outside world, I guess.
@bug: Hello! I'm glad you've liked the read up until now ^^ DoD is basically all of my favorite subjects smashed into a comic; sentient nature, deals with the devil, fear of mortality, etc. It makes me happy that other people have these interests as well!
@Oly-RRR: Thanks!
@AmyOf Darkness: The head tilt was my favorite part of the page ^^


Little brat even as a child, he was.
I love the different mindsets and customs of all the animals.
@LordOfPandemonium21: He's not in the best shape to go attacking her, since standing up a minute ago made his wounds reopen.

Plus it's tragic backstory time. Etiquette dictates all fighting is on hold.
@Frost Fox: I'm not sure if it's sarcasm if the only way she's ever known him is also the way he's saying he used to be.

"I once had black fur-"
"...you...you still do?"
@Skeletalwidow: Rig: -processing-
@Kingfish: Thank you, I was quite proud of it!
@Seredawolf22: So lonely~
@ShadowStalker1128: Get him a pretty collar!
When telling your tragic backstory to a deer casually mentions killing other deer.


Sorry for the delay! I was able to make an announcement about it on DA but SJ doesn't really have a convenient way to post minor-updates on stuff that isn't like, the comic's News section. Anyway I was having company arriving on Friday and needed to make a few tweaks on this page before uploading, and then my dog got suddenly sick. She's fine now but I put off uploading until I had free time after my company left. So back to regular updates now!

i just read this comic in one sitting and i wanted to let you know that I'm absolutely entranced by this!it revolves around a lot of themes that really resonate with me, as someone very fixated on the necessity of death and the idea of immortality as a sort of punishment. rig is a very endearing and relatable character to me, she's strangely comforting. i won't stop thinking about her for a long time i suspect

Her comment to pace saying nothings changed since you were a pup is a sarcastic remark but in Rigs case, it was just a fact she stated xD

Until he met Clay...
That loneliness explains why he would follow him so far
