Strips like this one are the ones that make me read sinfest. Please, more like this.


Put the Fuschia / Criminy arc in a book, and I'll buy it.

BUT - I'd want color, preferably including the strips that have been "colorised" by fans and posted on the forum.

Last panel, only one side of the "book fort" remains.

At last will we see it down?.

Notice that The Devil hasn't only not actually gone looking for her yet, he hasn't even sent Blue out for a second "search." Heck, he didn't even SEND Blue on the first search, she ANNOUNCED she was going to look for Fuchsia and he was basically "yeah, sure, good initiative on your part, be sure to keep your head in the game, good luck or whatever."

The Devil may not even care one way or the other that Fuchsia's gone. Nagging her to do her (literally) damned job was probably starting to get on his nerves, and he's already acquired TWO new employees to handle her duties (maybe that's where "Russet"'s been all this time, stabbing souls in Hell, while Lime's upstairs on hang-around-looking-sexy duty).

Maybe Lime will soon be promoted to Booth Babe. That'll probably be fun.

===

Okay, Fuchsia spent however many years in the bowels of Hell inflicting (literally) searing stab wounds upon people who were already screaming in agony because they were for all intent and purpose burning alive.

Seriously, think about it for a few seconds. That's the "reality" of what her painting depicts. Okay, yeah, according to the belief system which set the parameters of such a work environment (OSLT), that's simply part of her and Blue's job, to punish people God has designated "deserving" of such punishment, but she and Blue didn't find to be simply a tedious let alone unpleasant chore, they ENJOYED it. It's only a relatively recent development that it even started BOTHERING Fuchsia a little.

She's been away from that environment for a few days and now she's losing her grip on sanity.

Hm.

Serious thinking may now DE-commence. Thank you for your cooperation, if any. Wink

Learning to save yourself is the second greatest love of all.

Or something like that.

Panel 9: Powerful depiction of fear right there. Fear of the devil (natch), but also fear that she'll have no choice but to obey him.

Hold me.

Fuchsia-centric strips coming up. Our favorite sweet devil girl is gonna have to own up and face down what she's done soon.


I don't quite like the way you phrased that. 'Own up', like she's denying she did anything wrong. She never denied anything. In the earlier comics She knew she was doing bad things, the devil and blue did their best to change her back, but they couldn't. She wanted to change. She wanted to be good. She did good and comforting things for the damned souls she used to torture, she even owned a squishy toy pitchfork.

Also, from the context of your post, calling her 'favourite sweet devil girl', sounds like sarcasm as well.

That is just my interpretation of what you said. It is more difficult to figure out nuances in posts.

I apologize if I am completely wrong in interpreting what you said. The words 'Own up' simply rubs me the wrong way.

Teacher: Come on, own up. Who put thumbtacks all over my chair?
Class: *silence*
Teacher: I will punish the whole class if nobody owns up to what they did. Do you want that?!

__________________________

What's done is done. Atonement and doing whatever 'good' is in Sinfest is another thing. Learning to live with one's past is never easy, accepting it and forgiving oneself near impossible.

We don't know anything about her past though. There will be some strength in there which may help her come to terms with everything - then there is the devil who wants her back. It'll be near impossible figuring out whether it is a real flashback or he is actually there - due to the nature of Sinfest though.


Actually, you got the wording of 'own up' 100% correct. As we saw earlier this week, Fuchsia still has a lot of bottled-up internal pain from the torment she caused others from before she met Crim. And, clearly, she's trying to keep it bottled-up if she won't even try to talk about it and is subconsciously painting it. So, yeah. She's going to have to say, out loud, what she's done and then face down Satan if he tries to take her back.

As for the 'favorite sweet devil girl,' don't take that seriously. It was just a little nickname for Fuchsia.

@Everyone who doesn't want Crim to save Fuchsia: I have no problem with him doing that. We've all seen lots of stories where a girl saves an emotionally crippled boy from a life of sin by using the power of love, it'd be a nice subversion of the trope if a boy saved a girl this time.

I know you're obsessed with Glossy and feminism but we're capable of talking about other things as well.

Like how Fuchsia should totally paint pointillism.

Im wondering if its her past that is haunting her or her devil girl nature that wants to take over her.

Also, i think i had a mini heart attack or something like that as my eyes went from panel 11 to 15. anyone else did?



Yinello: My hole being agrees with you, she should totally paint pointillism.

I think it is her past haunting her..

The comic is saved as Post Traumatic Stress (My computer loads super slow sometimes and it popped up before the image). I've actually been doing a ton of research on the subject and really like how Tat incorporated it into the strip.

I'm inclined to believe the former, but the latter makes for good storytelling too. Tough call.

Definitely. Also, felt very cold inside from panels 5 through 10.

My question is did she - herself - paint the portrait of herself torturing the damned or did some supernatural force do that? I ask because though she starts off painting a tree in the first two panels but at the same time... it seems that nothing before panel 16 actually happened so I'm just... confused as to whether or not she was truly painting that tree, or if she was simply imagining that she was....
