So... this is what young devil lads do on a dare, is it?

So does this mean that devil people cannot exist in the real world? Shocked

Although, I am quite fond of the short one now. Hunky, I would say. #justsaying #sorrytat

Well, there's this one of Fuchsia:



http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2013-07-19

And a Sunday one where she stepped into the Reality Zone and while she didn't catch on fire, she saw her hand turn wrinkly and start to crumble, as though she was aging rapidly. Yet Li'l E seems to enter and leave the Reality Zone with impunity -- perhaps because he's half-human.

I love Fuchsia's glare at the reality zone in that one.

As for today's bullies-playing-reality-zone-chicken... meh. Back to Abby and 'Nique!

See, that's what I keep saying (it's not as if I don't know that I'm repetitive; it's not as if I don't know that I'm repetitive), if The Reality Zone is "reality," then what do the characters think that they're living in?

Also, if that's the only piece of "reality" in the Sinfestiverse (it's not a Reality Zone, it's The Reality Zone), shouldn't it get a lot more tourism?

In a fictional universe that is now making at least a moderate effort to take itself seriously, The Reality Zone seems more trouble than it's worth. But what do I know?

On a tangent, mention of Fuchsia's glare reminded me of another notable reaction of hers:


http://sinfest.net/view.php?date=2009-05-03

Gotta wonder exactly what she's saying to Ezekiel and Ariel (yeah, great job on the secret identity stuff, kids) in Panel 11.

So, and I'm not sure, but I think this is the point where Fuchsia's identity crisis started. Curse 'em out again, Fuchsia!

Then again, she was still happy in her job over a month later, so I guess that was just the first step.

She doesn't often seem as happy as she seems in Panel 3 there. Oh well.

Her "identity crisis" started before that: As Big D notes before that, she's somewhat distracted from her work. As is obvious by the fact she's leaning on the pitchfork, not jabbing anyone. Her happiness is not work-related, and she appears to be fairly happy with what she's got now - occasional conflicts with the Reality Zone and Seymour wanting a portrait of Jesus notwithstanding.

Fuchsia started wanting a life away from the Mansion probably from when Crim grabbed her hand and appealed to her better nature to try and stop her from finishing Seymour off.

Incidentally, don't she and Blue look *so* much better wearing, you know, clothes?

We've seen that a number of times. Any time Tange or Fuschia tried to go into the Reality Zone things went bad for them.

To me it's always represented the reality the person/character doesn't want to face. What else could be so terrifying?

i would say she was telling her boss she was happy in her job - but given the nature of her original answer, i think her happiness in fact stemmed from sources _outside_ her job. like crim.

but she was too smart to tell the boss that.
