My gf stumbled onto this and sent it to me - we've both spent the last couple days on a marathon read.  Let me preface my remarks with "HOLY FUCK YES!" because that's my overall reaction.

First off, the art is gorgeous.  When you do straight art it makes my heart ache for sheer beauty (THE BALLROOM SCENES OMG).  When you do comic style art, the expressions and body language show the emotion so well.  I know backgrounds can be a pain in the ass for not a lot of reward, since many people don't pay much attention, but you clearly invest some time in those as well.  You are one hell of a talented artist.

And then there's the writing.  This may have started out as a bit of fluffy spin-off, but it's become its own story.  The characterization is excellent.  It's hard to do one-off jokes and fourth-wall-breaking fun while maintaining an overall plot and consistent characterization, but you did it, and did it really, really well.  Both my gf and I are waiting with baited breath for the next installment.

Hello, I'm new to this and I really enjoy the the character interactions. 😃  I was just wondering about James and Eponine and how they started.

that came from Roomates. The first hundred or so of GND were drawn as an alternate vision of the events AsheRhyder was showing....

LOVE THIS! Now shamelessly plugging this to everyone I know.

Also can I say how much I love your characterization of Sarah? She annoyed the hell out of me in the movie. Your grown-up version of her is WAY better.

I am touched! I am also a bit grr because I am very defensive of Sarah. But enjoy!

This might have already been answered somewhere in the plot but I was just struck by a question.
How does the GDN/Roommates universe handle multiple versions of the same character? The ones that come to mind are Legolas, Howl and Sophie, Jadis, Luna and the POTO cast which all have book origins and a movie but I'm sure there are more examples. Are they viewed as just part of the characters psyches, or an alternate reality, or could there be some hoodoo voodoo, paradoxical metaphysical shenanigans where both versions meet?
Do you think they'd like their alternate selves? The POTO guys are the messiest in this regard and the idea of seven /more/ psychotic versions of Erik running around is terrifying.
I would look this up myself but 265 pages... plus roommates... It's a bit daunting.
