This is the end of chapter 17. Chapter 18 begins on Saturday.
That’s the determined Emma I know!!
The face in last panel is good, but I still think she should hug herself. I mean, the skeleton key Emma should hug the real one.
This is what I wanted to see! Both Emmas on a mission. Get that vorpal sword Emma!
So now the creation must kill its master. Emma must be the kne to kill one.
So now the creation must kill its master. Emma is the only
You know, I just realized something. When Daniel said “They’ve got my daughter, my *real* daughter, locked up somewhere”…he wasn’t talking about Elaine (though Nose purposefully misinterpreted it that way, I think).
He was talking about *Emma,* or rather SB-Emma.
He was talking about Elaine
He didn’t know Elaine was locked up yet though
We don’t know that.
Well actually when Nose mentions Elaine, he has a bit of a panic attack
This page is sort of dedicated to his reaction.
So, the creation must kill the master. Emma must be the one to kill one. I bet nose and some of the other rippers are gonna revolt with her.
Fish and Trinket look pretty happy to be evil.
Yep, Banshee and Bird not so much though.
Yeah, nothing much to say here except “go go ghost Emma!”
One is gonna get it now.
Yea, pretty sure it’s on now.
Dare I say it’s going to be…
One on One?
Yeah, I’ll see myself out.
THERE. Right THERE is the reason why I love Emma. Her own panic be damned. Someone’s in trouble, she’s going to do everything she can for them.
Look at that hard, determined look.
Look at the fighting stance she took.
Trying to help the girl from the book.
Oh please, One’s done. He’s totally done!
…I’m sorry, references plague my brain like catchy songs… I’ll just…quiet down now…
Time for Emma to kick ass and take names. Perhaps literally. Preferably to some kickass 80s music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYHGlWZjDLs
Edit: If anyone knows how to shrink/remove the thumbnail, I will gladly do so.
Isameg, I’m trying to get rid of this comment (or at least the obnoxiously large youtube thumbnail), but nothing seems to work. Removing the youtube link doesn’t remove the thumbnail, and for me, at least, deleting the comment just changes it to a guest comment. I reposted the comment sans thumbnail below (thinking that the original was deleted), so if you deleted this, that should exorcise the page of this demon thumbnail once and for all.
hmm I do hope our Emmas end up more akin to twins rather than one reabsorbing into the other…. ohh…. this kinda made me think of a darker rewrite of sleeping beauty. In that version the curse put her and all the castle to sleep for 100 yrs but once she was woken up all the magic was broken and time began to catch up with her, the thorns wilted, the castle crumbled and the Princess turned to dust in the Princes arms :/ Hope Sleeping Emma doesn’t have any magical backlash when they inevitably try and wake her up….
Haha oh man I remember that manga…. It was in that but I read it somewhere else too xD
Petition to make Emma and Elaine adopt SB as their sister and build her a blanket fort or give her a hug or something jesus
Elaine will Write a world made entirely of blankets and Care Bears. It is to be so.
Sad-mask encourages the appropriate reaction to the scene… If it had arms, it would hug them both.
I seem to recall reading somewhere that a few days without dreams causes insanity.
I’ve read that, too
Time for Emma to kick ass and take names. Perhaps literally. Preferably to some kickass 80s music. I’m thinking Dare, by Stan Bush.
(Note: this is a repost of an earlier comment. The earlier version had a link to a youtube video, but Disqus insisted on adding an obnoxiously large thumbnail that I could not get rid of, even after removing the link. Thus, I decided to delete and repost, sans link)
So “True”!Emma really is just a little, lonely girl.
“You need to go to the place where writers become stronger.”
So they’re holding a workshop at a gymnasium? =)
perhaps the library?
I was thinking a coffee shop.
There. This is the relevant info. Sleeping Beauty could have skipped the last page full of unnecessary and disturbing revelations and just started with this.
Noooooo ! Those were totally necessary. You know how long would we need to wait if she would be saving them for Elaine? (And Elaine would CERTAINLY want to know. Remember, writers wants all cards on table (except Fred)).
I’m talking about what’s important for Emma, not what’s important for us readers. (Although I feel we did not get all that much usable information from the last page either, just even more mysteries.) Emma did not benefit from hearing anything from the last page. Also, I highly doubt Elaine is going to hear any of this anytime soon, at least from Emma, since her sister will be too busy fighting One and co.
But such interesting mysteries.
This comic is full of mysteries, makes it fun to speculate, one reason I love it.
Doesn’t she? Now she knows the situation and some of why it’s happening. Won’t that inform her actions from now on?
Well, our Emma did ask the other Emma “You’re me?” and she simply replied– and also if there’s something our Emma can do to end the world, I think warning her not to do that is a pretty significant piece of information. She didn’t say exactly -how- the key would be turned, but maybe it would be obvious to our Emma now if someone tried to make her do that. Also as our Emma was getting hysterical other Emma might have taken it as a cue to back off.
I do agree though that the transition could use another panel, a beat between the hysterics and being able to listen again to what she needs to know right now, but layout being the tricky beast it is, I don’t mind. I’m not confused by the transition, and it’s easy enough to imagine a break while flipping the metaphorical page.
Are you *sure* Elaine wouldn’t want Fred on a table?
*Innocence, total innocence*
Well, not completely sure, but I think it wouldn’t be comfortable. It would be better laying him elsewhere.
And now the Asskicking Face is ON.
The more I read and see the more I am getting the feeling that the real Emma ‘Sleeping Beauty’ is the missing mother of Elaine.
I know I’m probably being odd or else very mislead by things. It’s just… in the memories the Emma we know was very young when she met a young nose. And it sounds like the real Emma was/is a namesake with Daniel as her writer. So for them to know that the real Emma was a namesake would she not have to be about the same age as Daniel?
To paraphrase an (awful) old movie, “Emma looks like someone who has come to chew bubblegum and kick ass….and she’s just run out of bubble gum.”
I have been a long time reader and these last two pages have been my personal favorite. Congrats!
cant wait!!! This story is really compelling, you girls have made a really good plot here. Good job!
Last panel says nothing, but everything all at once
I love her look of determination in the last panel. She is ready to fight.
What does SB stand for?
Lol! Thank you for not saying “duh”!
If ghost-Emma becomes her OWN story, does she then take on a name of her own, and no longer need the other stories inside of her to remain ‘real’?
No dreams? One is a monster!
Uh oh. Serious face. :3
… let her at him!!!
[there are some evil characters in fiction who make my blood boil as if they are a personal offence to my very being. yes i am that weird]
OH IT IS SO ON!!!!
Not to be a grammar natz, but “There’s never any dreams” –> “There’re (or “there are”) never..” Unless it’s a colloquial kind of thing, then don’t mind me.
Things I have learned about Emma:
1) Do not mess with Emma’s sister.
2) See rule 1.
I think other-Emma is damn well close enough to count as a sister. Some One’s gonna get wrecked.
The success of the pun is the oy of the beholder!
And that’s the Emma we know and love there in the last panel.
She’s crying. Somehow that makes me suspicious of her.
Gawh tears make me sad
Okay, but DOES THIS MEAN that one Emma can go *whispers* back to Oz/Warrick?
I like going on to my friends about Namesake’s art and the lovely unique style that charms the eye so effectively, but in this update I have to congratulate the succinct and powerful writing and the strength of the teamwork between writer and artist.
The way Emma gets hit with one of the worst existential punches you can take, and the way her disposition changes from panic to determination when she’s confronted with someone who needs her help, it’s communicated beautifully in the art and expressions and it says so much about the character in a mere two pages.
Congrats, that was amazing.
Ya want to bet that if Emma uses the Vorpal blade on One she will be playing right into One’s hands?
Poor both Emma’s. I wonder what will happen to OUR Emma if the other one wakes up? Will she have to leave the only life and family she’s ever known when the original comes back, or can they all live together as a family, probably with OUR Emma, or the other one, having to change her name or something and become the original’s twin? *lol* Though exactly what kind of life is O. Emma going to have? If she’s been ‘asleep’ all this time since her mom sold her to One, and they created OUR Emma to live O. Emma’s life starting from what age?
Hey everyone this is something important you should ALL check out BEFORE March 19, or else we’ll lose our rights to post fanfics, fanarts, fanvideos, etc. Check out this link: http://sakuralisel.deviantart.com/art/Important-Stop-SOPA-2014-Campaign-Petition-440362007?ga_submit_new=10%253A1394835693&ga_type=edit&ga_changes=1&ga_recent=1
VORPAL BLADE TO THE RESCUE
Does anyone else think Emma looks like a superhero in the last panel?
WAIT. So when Emma’s Dad says “they have my real daughter” he isn’t talking about Elaine HE WAS PROBALY TALKING ABOUT SLEEPING BEAUTY BECAUSE HE’S THE WRITER OF HER STORY
The saddest sentence ever. “There’s never any dreams.”
