Everything looks the same... and yet... so different. Feels different.

Less screaming. Less furniture being thrown about. Less bottles being smashed.

It's like something's missing...

I will come and eat your face

Hey Danni the melty Muppet he knows its a nightmare because we all know his mom was either a vegetable after sealing his memories or he wiped her mind so he has a cover to blend into society. If you wanted it make it realistic you should have added a bunch of demonic sealing circles or some stained sheets. 2.3 out of 10 and that's because you at least knew breakfast is meant to be eaten in the mornings. If you really wanted him to believe it to be real you shouldn't have gone for happy, maybe just make it not as shittu (food for thought for next time).

Considering the last rating was a 7.8 out of 10 for too much disembowelment, combined they're just a bit above 10 XDDD

Danni likely looked at Dust's memories, went "oh wow this kid is real sad, let's try some happy... how does one do 'happy'? This is NOT my forte at all. Hmm... bright colors? Lots of food? Yeah, that might work".

Happy for Mina maybe. Maybe show Dust's sweetheart and his other friends eating those biscuits welcoming him home. This is just the utopia paradox. If you make something so happy and perfect a persons mind will read as fake and reject it. You know what Danni's answer should be to Dust asking him what his question should be "I'm your other Mother with her eyes monetarily turning into buttons." In a cheeky reference to Neil Gaimans Coraline.

Ah. So we're seeing Dust strangely in some place...dimension where things are more positive for him.

Yet he is confused by this right now.

It makes me think of the movie Star Trek: Generations, where Capt. Picard ends up in this strange place called "The Nexus", where he gets everything he ever wanted in life, but realizes it's all fake.

...This is just what I'm guessing is maybe going on...

I'd say that's pretty accurate to the situation, yep :D Even irl, if life has been just terrible and suddenly there's a bout of good fortune, I would be very suspicious XD

That's where I'm at right now. I have had a run of good luck, so I buy lottery tickets, expecting to lose, to even out the luck... lol

Remember kids, that behind every silver lining, there IS a dark cloud!

ok, two comments. the first is: Fish for breakfast??????

the second is that this is a far cry from The saddest 5 strips in the history of webcomics.

whoever is behind this (even if it's Dust's own subconcious desperately trying to find a "happy place"), this is seriously messed up.

First: Yep! We call it "daing" or "tuyo" (literally translates to "dry", since it's dried fish). It's common to have for breakfast in my country, being surrounded by seas on all sides (Dust's home country, Ariavesti, is also the only country in the mainland to be along the coast with an actual beach. Khovard would also count, but it's mostly hard cliffs and forest down south for them). Usually eaten with vinegar and rice.

Second: XD I can't believe you guys still remember that hahaha! Comparing that strip and this page, this pretend happiness does feel like a perversion to his memory of Dust mom...

I agree with Jarvi 110%! That strip earned that title!

That strip is what stopped me from facepalming along with Prayformercy, and starting to cut Dust a little slack

Hey Dust, after what you've been through lately, just go with it.

That's the response Danni was probably hoping for, yes XD

...yeah, who is she? a figment of his mom? or of one of the demons? or of Mina or Clio? :o

I'm thinking.. either Clio is retelling the story a bit differently, and he just remembers bits from the other version.. or it's Dantalion again making mush out of his brain.

@mjkj We'll see some evidence by next page, I think, but most peeps seem to be leaning towards Dantalion at the moment.

Is this supposed to be his mom, or a fake sister or something? I wonder how our demon friend is gonna twist this one up...

This is Dust's momma, but not quite? Though you all know that already, it's just a matter of what's going to happen next.
