Ah, back from work and really pleased with this page. ^^

Yeah, good way to end off the chapter; seeing Patricia freak the fuck out and wreck shit. Hell, when I was added dialog to this page last night even had a brief, odd discussion with Martin; does Patricia really love O'Hera? Like, does she actually buy the bullshit rhetoric and affection she claims to have for her "children?" Or is she close enough to O'Hara to know it's all an act and really only liked O'Hara because O'Hara indulges and enables Patricia's latent homicidal tendencies? Until this page I was 100% convinced it was the latter (and... you could read it as that still being the case). Now I'm not so sure. Martin said it's probably both.

I always really love the hidden-eyes thing. It's smething that always looks shitty in the lineart but great when it comes back in color.


Okay, what do you think of more when you see a character trashing a room? Citizen Kane or The Room?

For anyone wondering, no, Patricia is not the next outright arc villain - things aren't quite together enough just yet to start directly setting that up, though it'll become clear who it is before too terribly long. There is a plan in place for following this up, just not sure when exactly it'll be. Am looking forward to it though.

Anyway, yeah. I would say the most likely answer is that Patricia does on some level believe O'Hara's claims to care about her and her family and recognize what she's done to help people, but end of the day the biggest reason Patricia follows her is because she gives her an outlet for her destructive urges and pretty much actively encourages them. I could see in Patricia's case here pretty much seeing enabling those as a sign of love.

Going on a little break after this chapter, more details to come, but after it we'll be starting up chapter 21, Loving Family.

Patricia needs help, people with mental states like hers you do not want wandering loose in the streets, wonder what's going to happen next.
