Thanks guys, @Jeikor and @D'Artagnon! In the first draft, the nightmare was actually Doyler's and significantly different from the one that found it's way into the story (a version of that will appear in issue #4: Summer's End) but on reflection I felt that it gave too much away regarding Jamie's fate and the events on Pāpa'i beach eleven months prior. The decision to give the nightmare to Kibu instead was as @D'Artagnon says, to not only show that the Island and the Forest could worm it's way into the mind of someone seemingly as hale and hearty as Kibu (who's only knowledge of the Island extends to where to find the best weed) but also that with Kibu in company Doyler has a firmer footing and perhaps a little more control, a little less reason to be afraid. If that actually works is obviously up the reader.
You 've done it again. I just have read quickly some parts. I will have to sit down to read it all.
Some parts come together while again another story lines are created.
I believe it will continue for a while...
However it would be nice if Kyle would post at least a chapter a year.
But he has had good reasons why not, but a man can dream..
An outstanding chapters!! The boys friends Dylan and Garret has a complicated relationship, even if Dylan dose not know it yet. The old addage of gayboy crush on straight boy. In Rob theboys coming to his aid was a God send to him. Yes we see this way to othen in life. This may only be a story, but let us not forget the childern like Rob having to live this out. If only the members would read this story they could relate to it. It is way over looked. A well wrighten and heart worming read, well worth the time.
