Hurt by Darqx Hurt by Darqx
:saddummy: Oh i made myself sad.


Have you heard about the Butterfly Effect? Basically it's when one small change at a point causes a different outcome later. Like being a second too late or a second too early in noticing something ~

This is something i've wanted to animate for a long time, except i realised i just dont have the patience to do it (the original idea would have been animated twice for the different viewpoints) and so figured i should just make it a comic and then at least it will be finished to some degree |D It follows the same WHAT IF? as Redback's Revenge but shows both of their resulting timelines simultaneously. If you want to read it "properly" you should follow the split panels straight down and they'll give you one of the boy's timelines, though the song lyrics branch across both sides to tie them together.

The original inspiration for this comic was actually this {Runaway} song (hahaha..."happy hardcore" they said, not whilst i'm listening to it i said) which would have worked fine for an anim but a bit harder to show in a comic. So then i was listening to a playlist by t3h-b4n3 and re-found Hurt - Johnny Cash (odd to think it's a cover of a Nine Inch Nails song lol), to which i was like "wow this is such a sad song...it's perfect." You should have it playing as background music for this thing it's great.

You know... for the first time, I realized that in the comparative panels where the two grow up, Izm's smile grows, and A.E.D.'s smile dims.  But both look equally sad and I just died a little.

That's because Izm smiles almost all the time, even when he's not :<

The song in the background gives it that much more impact. Now if this WAS animated with that music behind it...
You wouldn't have to animate it, twice, the way I imagine it. Of course, the way I imagine it would confuse some people.

Thank you! Haha well it was originally planned as an animation (but to a different song for copyright purposes) but i had it in mind for years until it was like ahhh fuck it and did the comic version instead XD Otherwise this still wouldn't be out here! |D;

The way i was originally going to do it was to have one anim from .D's POV, one from Izm's, and then a split screen option so you could watch both things happen at the same time. Hence the animating twice aspect :)

You can't really miss Izm's goggles considering how they're worn, but .D's bracelets are more subtle c:

Not often ??? Everytime they hurt, I cry ! And it happens a lot ! X3
They'd rather not call an ambulance, if I survive I'd end stalking them. Or I'd get shot again because this scar bastard would come again...

The fact that .D kept Izm's goggles almost made me cry. ;-; But in the panel when he was driving, I swear, I'm so used to Izm with goggles I thought Izm magically appeared out of nowhere. XD

Izm also kept something of .D's ;) Lol! The goggles are too iconic they can only belong to one person eh? XDD

Julaksa Featured By Owner Edited Jul 20, 2014
I never paid much attention to .D's details, but I'll try to spot what he kept x3 And...Ikr?XD And I love Izm so much I bought random red goggles myself last year, now they're gone somewhere, probably hidden in the darkest corners of the house XD

And another thing, out of the topic of the deviation right here, but I lol'd a bit too hard about it and writing to you again would not make sense, and would take more time,  so:

With my best friend we were just being random, I stole my brother's hat and my friend stole her mom's glasses, and after we dressed up as Zeke and Ren we did a little rp in my room, , but to the actual thing - We were just talking, she randomly said "Nice curtains you have there, Rire~"in a very sexy voice. O.o XDD I don't even know anymore, don't judge me XD
Sorry for the very long comment, stalker of your account - out. c:

I don't know, I'm right here with her right now, it's 05:10 AM, we're even more drunk on air, and she keeps making stories up for Rire and Caleb that they're not bad people at all XD I think that too, I can make so many stories up for them, but I won't spam your comments anymore, and I might draw some HH fanart soon. c:

This is an awesome comic and that song is really sad when Johnny Cash sung it. I looked it up a few years ago and I cried listening to it.
