The Depths, an adult furry webcomic – Page 27: Breathless; Prisoner

Poor, sweet Kalea. She’s just not in the same class of diver skills as her companions.

We thought we’d add a little foreshadow there; were you immersed enough in this comic to figure it out?

Well, anyway, we didn’t figure Jamie was evil enough. Sometimes you want a villain to have a few flaws here and there, or something that makes him endearing in a way, and honestly we thought the “Scottie” channel would be enough. Well, maybe not.

This was the last page we did before 2019, by the way. At the time, we thought it fitting to end the year on a cliffhanger.

And what a year it was, at least from Leilani and Riff’s perspective. A few health scares, a few good times, a few bad times. A very sad death of a loved one and a very joyous addition to the household. This is how life is though, ups, downs, backwards, forwards, side to side, diagonally, and sometimes you might feel like you’re just going in circles.

Of course, you should accept all of these “directions” and work with them. And you can’t ever give up on life either. As long as you have breath in your lungs, or thoughts in your head, you need to stick around.

It’s like that cool movie “The Truman Show” – a must-see if you haven’t yet. There’s a slogan on a button affixed to Truman’s love interest’s sweater that says “How is it going to end?”, meaning how is his “show”, which is seen by the whole world, going to end. This man has never lived a normal life – he’s lived a life that’s been 100% arranged for him, from the things he learns in schools, to the girls he dates and eventually marries, to his job, and his hometown friends and acquaintances, who are nothing more than paid actors.

What we were trying to say as we drew a curtain on “The 2018 Show” was that…well, we’re not really on that kind of show. No one is really watching us 24/7, or pretending to be our friends and families in most instances. No one is controlling what we want to do to a point. No one is guiding us to our destinies. And clearly, no one is getting rich off of us through product placement.

But this is YOUR show.
This is YOUR life.
Live it until it ends – and please try not to end it yourself. =(

There is a whole world out there that needs you. You could be the one that, as an example, mentors someone later in life to grow up to become a great scientist, or speaker, or engineer, or one of a million other things.

Or maybe you’re the driver in the right-hand lane that pulls over for an ambulance in heavy traffic, which automatically saves the life of the little girl inside who was struck by a car.

Or you could be that one person who tells a friend that he should go to the convention across town, and subsequently save the lives of hundreds of people in a fire. Remember: YOU ARE CONNECTED TO THE WHOLE WORLD IN SOME WAY.

And that is such an awesome thing, isn’t it? And this is why your life is so amazing.

We just proved, without a shadow of doubt, you need to stick with it, through the bad times and the good times.

Here’s to you, the viewer, and to your friends, families and loved ones.

When we wrote this the first time, “The 2019 Show” was about to begin.

Obviously, things didn’t get much better for us but…guess what?

We’re still here – and so are you.
