The biggest problem is overthinking. This was probably behind the kiss, which in turn cemented the apprehensive feel of the forum and was the definitive one among not-so-many "Oh, pity her" moments. Even the strangest of things can become mundane, as evidenced by the fact that you're alive and typing into a worldwide communication network without being muted with wonder. DCS has been working on the storyline for a long time, so she sees Raine as a thinking being and everything else is secondary. She's certainly depicted as a young girl and an equal. Certainly fellow sentiences would turn the world on its ear, and certainly talking cartoon pets have first-grade implications of discrimination, oppression and superiority. There's a story to be made there.
But you have to let the readers get used to the ideas that are now obvious to you. Otherwise this happens.
My idea may or may not collapse when faced with the ridiculously unfortunate choice of illustration in the following strip.
a) it's not like DCS is new to the whole "writing a webcomic" thing (although she's sure acting like it the past two years), and
b) she made the mistake of trying to release it like a normal webcomic, when it's apparently the kind of thing you need to read in one sitting.
but really, even these first 30 pages or so, even if it IS just the beginning, it's such poor quality most of us would not read the whole thing.
I like watching porn of Doog...
Shut the fuuuuuck upGo away, please...
Personally I think that goes back to overthinking things, look at OOTS, a coherant narative that if you read issue by issue or in one large block still makes sense, still keeps up your anticpiation.b) she made the mistake of trying to release it like a normal webcomic, when it's apparently the kind of thing you need to read in one sitting.
The only change in the characters I've ever really noticed is when Ozzy stopped having emotions and they stopped being kids and started being DCS's way of dealing with being picked on as a kid and that happened years ago.
