#384 – what’s familiar

Haha Eve what an asshole. Have I talked about this whole 9/11 backstory I carried in my mind the whole series? 9/11 was meant to be the culmination of all the worst events in Eve's young life - a shared trauma with Park on the day they'd long planned to have sex for the first time, her parents' decision to divorce, her Mom's conversion to a post-911 neocon, and a family-splitting departure from the city. It played out hilariously and painfully in my head. Looking back I still think this is a great story that I would've loved to do, but it just never happened. Anyway that's what this page was sort of alluding to. The Octopus Pie 9/11 story.

  1. Well at least you NEVER FORGOT that planned backstory haha

    1. You! YOU! How dare you. Have my upvote.

  2. You should write the story sometime! As sort of a bonus or something. When you've got free time of course.

  3. Whoa!!! That is a crazy backstory. it sounds like it would work as a stand-alone "collective worst day of our lives" comic. That actually makes sense for how pessimistic Eve is… sigh. 9/11.

  4. That story makes a lot of things make even more sense. From Eve and her cynicism, to her relationship with Park that has obviously become stale and incompatible.
