Rumplestiltskin

Rumplestiltskin

by H0lyhandgrenade
Chris knows there's something out there better for her. She's young, cute, downtrodden (in her opinion) and orphaned; How can she not be destined for greatness?

When the chance to prove her worth comes along, she can hardly turn it down... Just a pity the only person she gets for company is a mysterious obnoxious masked fellow who just can't seem to leave her alone.

This has been SO GOOD! And sad but I still like this ending - all proper endings are at least a bit sad just because they are ending, anyway. It was nice being walked out of the story by a herd of cuiburn. :D
I feel privileged to finally finish reading this story :)
Thank you so much h0ly for the journey. I remember finding this comic, as someone else here has commented, on a different comic platform, I don't know how many years ago. Your art and story drew me in, and I can't believe I've made it here to the end of the comic.

I would absolutely love to hear/read your post-commentary on the comic, in whatever form you choose.
Wait why does this get three updates a month if its over? I'm confuzzled

It has finished! I feel so empty now... But at the same time I feel so motivated and inspired! I've always commented as a guest with this name, but just now I've finally created an account (and I'll probably finally start making a comic after inktober thanks to you XD ) Thank you so much for inspiring me and everyone else! It's so fun to see how much you've grown since the first chapters. It's been a blast to be able to be a part of this in the comment section ;P I'm so happy I found this webcomic, it's been there for me for such a long part of my life. It holds a special little place in my heart.

I've been reading your comic for years and years, since pretty dang near the start.
I've been making so many theories in my head. And by being so invested in the story, I even forgot this story is actually a retelling of a fairy tale several times. You really made this into something special :')

Now I have to know, will there be hard copies for sale? You previously mentioned that there'd be after the story would finish (which it has right now) and I NEED to buy them. (Is there some way to pre-order them maybe? XP )

Anyways, thank you so much for finishing this story! It's amazing, you're amazing, you deserve all the praise and glory you can get! >w<

It’s always irked me that I’ve never seen anyone else mention this
I mean- I've called it for a long time but... it's pretty obvious Gabe is the Fair's son.
I mean- he's in Mokepon wearing the same flipping mask.
I always thought these hood guys were some kind of expert mages. More the type to throw a fireball than give a man a bare-knuckled beatdown.
@CrassKal:
Here it is. I knew I made this comment somewhere around this point in the story. I did stop reading and eventually forgot about this story. Now that it's completed let's see if I can finish it.
Aw, he inherited his uncle/grandpa's face dirt.
Poor Toby. Was never allowed his own dreams. The man beat a trained knight while drunk off his a**, possibly having more potential than Chris.
Took down 1 and 1/2 knights while DRUNK?! Nicely done, Toby.
I hope you return to this weird fantasy land in a future story.
Dang I can't believe it's over. I remember seeing the first draft/teaser? on deviantart and followed the webcomic here when it officially started. Can't believe it finally came to an end but thank you for sharing this with us. Fantastic story and art
Thank you so much for sharing your comic and such a beautiful world with us. It is a wonderful story and you ended it in a heartwarming bittersweet way.

Thank you very much! It was a truly inspiring and interesting adventure to follow all this time!
Oh wow! I started reading this comic from close to the beginning and it's a little bittersweet now that it's ended. This was amazing and thank you for such a deep and wonderful story! <3
Congratulations!
I've been following this comic since... well I can't remember exactly. A long time. And I have to say this has been one of my favorite retellings of Rumpelstiltskin. There was the gorgeous artwork, of course, and interesting magic system and world setup. And I was impressed that, while I admittedly did find Chris kind of an annoying dumb@$$, it never got to the point where I hated her or wanted the bad things she was charging into to actually happen to her.
Thanks for your dedication to seeing this to the end... I hope I can afford to purchase this for my shelf someday soon (assuming you're going to be printing this) Cheers!
I'll miss reading this every week. You did a fantastic job.

Great story. I'm not in charge of deciding how it ends, but I gotta say I really like what you decided to close and what you decided to keep ambiguous/open-ended. Thanks for having us along for the ride.
