Sleeping beauty awakes.

And that's probably a good job as his sleep doesn't look like it was all that restful, eh? There's a lot going on in that brain...
And the bit that kills me is the way, when he wakes, he quickly settles; as if this sort of dream is nothing unusual to him.

Well, I never left a comment before (I'm the shy kind) but this page was so beautiful I just needed to leave one.
This is an amazing job, and a great story. I love the characters, their psychology, the design...
You two are amazing artists, it's a pleasure to wait for a new page every monday.
Good luck for the rest of the story, I'll happily wait for it :)

Whooaaa! This is such a great page!! I absolutely love it <3 <3 You really get to see what is going on in Cort's brain and I just think that is soooo freakin' cool! Awesome job ^-^

This page is perfect in every little detail. We don't get to understand all the things that are haunting Court's past but the little bits and pieces we do get are like walking on shards of glass.

Also you are a fantastic artist... I can't stop staring at his chest. Court is a beautiful young man and the curls of hair at the nape of his neck are downright precious.

Lovely way to show his dream - or should I say nightmare? :)

Wow! I wonder who's the person he was kissing in his dream?

@Joemon8: There's some weird stuff in his head, eh? I'm waiting for people's theories now :D Glad you like it!

@SoraKazuma: Aww,thank you ^_^ Yeah, we definitely get a glimpse at what sort of a weird life he's head up to this point. I wonder what theories people are putting together!
And awwwww your beautiful young man comment made me smile :) Cort of course is convinced he's something hideous and awful - silly boy. He just can't see what others (and Ian) see.

@magicmau5: Well, it looks like the same person from the left looks a little different on the right when they lean in...and is that smoke in his dream? :D

Oh my gosh, what a fantastic page! There is so much going on! My eyes are just bouncing all over the place. I love how it all seems to tie together in some way. I don't really understand what is going on in most of the pieces, of course... but you can really sense the emotion coming from this page. Those cracks that appear in his dream are an awesome concept, if horrifying. And the way you had him wake up is sooo well done.

Now I'm wondering though. I see a rope... around someone's neck. What happened there? The girl he appears to be kissing suddenly sprouted freckles - like Ian, maybe? ;) Argh, and who is that costumed person in the background on right?! Why are there bugs crawling on child Cortland? So many questions. I can't wait to see where this goes :)

@AngryAngel: ooh I nearly missed this comment. Thanks so much. And ohooo - you have good eyes! So yes, there's a rope and that's important. And the girl with freckles appearing on her skin - well spotted! The costume, the bugs - all will be revealed in time, but it's great that you've picked up on so much as you'll be able to tick things off. I'll say that the 'costume' looks a little like a British lawyer's wig. :)

WOW such a beautifully composed page!! So much to look at too, I spent a long time staring at each individual image, I'm curious if some parts are dream and some parts Cortllands history? :< Very interesting!!

@Theorah: thanks, hon x yeah, I can say that everything on the page is related to something real...though Cortland's mind has twisted some of it a little.

Memories mixed in a dream. There is no doubt he has a disturbing past.

Ugh, this poor guy... I really hope that one day he finds some peace. A tumultuous mind is draining.
