    Woot!! First post!

    This is the best comic evah! ;) Gah! It's the attack of the multiple Haleys! Wow Rich, excellent way of (partially) resolving the Haley lack of self-confidence subsubplot while at the same time lampooning all the critics of the subsubplot, as well as those who seem to think every strip has to end in a "punchline!" Well done and bravo, sir, I say!

    Well looks like we are in for another round of decrypting. Nice though that there is a new personality that wants to get back to the fun stuff... although it feels a tiny little bit like you shot at all those winers in the forum *g*

    Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?
    Does the reverse side also have a reverse side?

    ROFL! It's my celestial super-reflexes! ;) I've never gotten to post earlier than the third page before, and here I achieve my life-long (would you believe, month-long?) ambition of getting not only on the first page but the very first post!

    As a celestial, a paragon of goodness, I must say however that I feel your pain. :D

    Great comic, like usual, by the way.

    Meh. Not among my favourites.

    - Am I on the first page? The only reason I feel moved to post at all is to prove to those who think that the first page is always filled with uncritical praise that it is also possible to put uncritical er, criticism here :)

    - Nope, this is page 2. Ah well, I'll go back to my usual practice of not even noticing which page I'm on. :D

    Ha ha! You are too late, evil talky girl! I have spoiled your evil plans to ruin the first page! ;D

    P.S. I have to say though, I didn't like Haley's new personality's short hair. She's not the same Haley I fell in love with! ;)
    P.P.S. I could put that criticism on the first page, but I won't! Neener neener! :D

    Haley's self-reliance is blonde. That brings up questions.
    Is she meant to look angelic.
    Is Haley not a natural red (gasp!)?
    Should this even be discussed?

    And why is the humorous one short-haired? I don't get it.

    Silly Personification-of-Haley's-Self-Loathing! Romantic subplots are never, ever resolved until the farewell episode, years later!

    I guess revelations of that sort are more the business of Personification-Of-Haley's-Daytime-Television-Watching, huh?

    I'm the part of Haley's brain that's sick of all this emo crap and wants to get back to the comedy.

    Brilliant :D And a great way to snap back at the whiners.
    Haley's comedy sense is hot.

    And aww, Haley was such a cute kid, judging on the Haley's optimism -character. But who's the self-relience -one? ... has Haley been blonde? :o I doubt it - who is she?

    And, wtf, how can a stick figure have fat thighs? :D

    (Edity edity! Second page yays.)

    Love the personifications. It couldv'e been funnier though.

    But the self-loathing has a point.

    Woot, second page!
    Bah. It really shouldn't be this hard to think of a decent signature. Um.

    I normally don't read this thread, or post here, since the first 5 pages are about who posted on what page, and the last 5 pages are about where the new comic is.

    But I had a question.

    Because, this might be important.

    In the very last panel, Haley says "Next comic! Geez!"

    Now, is it my imagination...or does she ACTUALLY say that? It almost looks like a normal white speech balloon. But I might be imagining it. But if I'm not, that means Haley is cured.

    No, if you look closely you can see the window pane lines - it's still transparent. But it is less transparent than the others. kinda SPOILER-y Maybe now that she's not being adviced by her self-loathing, she might start getting better. Or for some other reason. The getting better -part was the point. [ /spoiler]

    (I'm new, so I'm not that sure what I should tag with spoilers. I took precautions.)
