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's perfect." You should have it playing as background music for this thing it's great.

This is heartbreaking T-T The fact that they'd both dedicate their lives to avenging the other's death...

:iconsupertighthugplz: This is why i sat on this "what would happen if" idea for like years before deciding everyone could share IN THE MISERY

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 :)
