Thank you from both of us!
That expression...oh god...it still breaks my heart. There is a lot being said in that moment. Betrayal is high on the list. ;_;

Oh, Ian, honey


When Cort's yelling, he looks frustrated, pissed, pushed past his limit -- you can see the shame, and fury because of the shame and then he's face to face, right there, and he clenches his fist and then it slips...

He is angry -- angry enough that the pattern isn't just in the background but becomes the backdrop of that penultimate panel that slithered all the way in from behind/under.

But still, more importantly, he looks so fucking *hurt*.

And Ian (you idiot!) almost looks angry! Shocked and challenging (which I didn't expect, but anger comes as a close second when you feel stupid)

My *GOD* the interplay between these two is killer!

Keep 'em comin, ladies.

Being able to consume these kinds of stories, both verbal and visual, is fantastic. I feel lucky! I hope my own works are even half as good.

Also, Ian's eyes in this one are lovely. That last panel's heartbreaking.

Omg I love their expressions so much in the 4th and 6th panel, there is so much emotion conveyed there. Cort feels so betrayed and hurt and Ian feels regretful and scared that he hurt Cort, and just realised how deeply he had hurt him...
This page breaks my heart *hats off to the artist*
Btw I love Young Avengers, it's so awesome you worked on issue 14 ^^

Of all the times when Ian's big mouth surely would have come in handy, this definitely wasn't it. And it's fascinating to me how he was then completely stunned into silence by Cort's outburst. I'm sure this wasn't how he planned this party to go at all. In fact, I bet he thought that the two of them were doing quite well up until that point. He should have just been honest in the first place, and certainly not such a douche rocket when confronted with the truth .__. Cort doesn't seem like the type to trust easily. I bet it won't be easy to make a comeback from this.

The expressions on both of their faces are brilliant in this exchange. They really just make you stop and stare. Cort's balled fist in the 4th panel makes me wonder if he considered striking Ian during that moment of utter hurt and betrayal, but then decided to just walk away.

Your move, Ian. What are you going to do to fix this?

I don't even know who you refer to with "that expression breaks my heart".

Now, this comic is gaining his title for real. It BREAKS our heart into thousands of pieces with just a gaze T___T

I'm such a sadist! I love that last panel!!! It is perfection

ah! we're almost there! at that scene from the prologue on the stairways and GAH CAN'T FUCKING WAIT

Oh my god. Don't do this to me. I can't stop looking at their expressions. They both look so hurt, especially Ian, but really both of them are killing me right now. The only thing that keeps me going is that the scene of the prologue is near! Go after him, Ian, don't let him go!
Well, brb, I need to go draw my feelings out.

I keep coming back
To look at this.

I wonder if Tanner's making that angry face in bottom left panel because he almost *wants* Hunt to hit him.

Because he *does* feel guilty.

@CatastropheJones: there's so much going on here...it's just excrutiating. But it's all worth it when we know you guys are picking up on it all ^_^ Hurt is the word *sigh* It's probably ranking highest in Cort right now, other than anger at himself for being so damned stupid as to think Ian was actually earning his trust. ;_;

@Ninhursag: Thank you! I'm so, so glad it all comes through that way for you. THere's so much going on in both of their heads it was so hard to try and express it all on their faces!
And yay! Young Avengers is wonderful and I can't tell you how chuffed I was to be able to finish Billy and Teddy's story ^_^

@martathecat102: haha - that's probably his inner monologue right now XD

@AngryAngel: I knowwwwww. poor Ian. And you're so right - that silent panel is telling in itself. He's stumped; lost. That's rare for him - and he knows it. He must really care! I'm just so glad it all comes accross clearly ^_^

EmmaVieceli, February 8th, 2016, 11:57 am     Reply

@MoonByte: Yeah - sort of both, honestly. They're both dying a little inside right now!! ;_;

@SamJ: Ohhh yess...so soon! And this is my favourite scene because of the rollercoaster of emotions! ^_^

@Eryth: Sorry! xxx But they have to go through this...they'll be fine. But they both hurt like hell right now, for different reasons...argh!
Draw your feelings out? Are you drawing? If it's BREAKS related, please do share!! x

@CatastropheJones: Whether he wants it or not, I'll leave the story to tell, but he certainly seems to expect it. ouch! There's a real shock when cort just walks away...0_O

Poor guy probably has so many hang-ups over accepting charity as it is.
