Saturday update! Surprise! But alas, it's because I can't update next week because I am away- sorry again, these next two months are going to be chaos for me!

This is so sweet! c:

Reply Rogue (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 3:01 am

@Toast: you might think it's sweet but maybe you've failed to notice the horrifying flashbacks and the subtle mind-controlling or at least thought-influencing butterfly making Hero doubt and mistrust? hmm?

Reply Guest (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 10:44 am

@Rogue: I'm not sure if that's a flashback. Assock is reacting as well to Negative

Reply Kata (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 11:19 am

@Guest: Nah I think Assok is reacting to her squeezing the stuffing out of him, if he were stuffed.

Reply Toast (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 11:07 pm

@Rogue: Well, yes, but i was referring less to the fact that the butterfly is trying to get hero not to trust RGB, and more to the fact that hero is finding ways around that. I mean, the butterfly is clearly startled when hero talks about trusting the others to make judgments about RGB, so that's probably not it talking!

Reply Wafflehead_Man (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 3:00 am

Oh cripes, I have no idea whether that butterfly is going to be evil or not. Immense suspense!

I'm sooooo glad to see negative again!!!
Also the butterfly seems suprised about hero's response

Reply Hana (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 4:15 am

Yeah! Digest that butterfly, Hero!!!

Reply quoi_space (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 8:01 am

I know there's a huge amout of important things on this page, but one of my favorites is the fact that hero can say 'TOby' correctly. So if rgb can do the same then he literally has no excuse not to

Reply martha (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 9:45 am

noo but toby told her she's gonna die she shouldn't trust him D:

Reply Danana (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 4:46 pm

@martha: nah i think TOby only told her that more as a warning because of how many heroes failed before and what happened to him with the getting ripped apart anf all that. I think thats what he meant, i guess.

When I saw that butterfly on the last update, I thought it was part of the design of Hero's shirt and that I'd missed it this whole time.

@Tijopi11: I saw the butterfly and thought it was on the shirt, but I love its;"OH CRAP" moment.

Reply narc (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 1:59 pm

Ooooh no no no. Bad things are happening.

I'm guessing the butterfly encourages/feeds on mistrust, because it seems shocked when Hero goes on to say she trusts Assok and the rest...

I'd rather trust RBG than the butterfly.


Reply Guest, May 16th, 2015, 4:13 pm

RGB hasn't done much to be trusted or liked since the first page of this comic. So I can't blame Hero for being distrustful.

Yet I still feel a little bad for the guy, he seemed pretty saddened by her answer.

Reply AceofSpades, May 16th, 2015, 8:40 pm

I'm pretty sure the butterfly represents wisdom or trust itself (which is funny considering the caterpillar/worm-like creatures are doubts). But I don't really think it's evil.

This makes me feel really bad for RGB. This one time, I genuinely feel like he's being sincere, only to be shut down. I mean, I would trust him... Then again, we see just how badly Hero's experience with BW has scarred her mentally, so I don't blame her.

Reply Toast (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 11:11 pm

@AceofSpades: The butterfly actions wouldn't make much sense if it were wisdom or trust, given that it is encouraging hero not to trust rgb.

Reply AceofSpades, May 17th, 2015, 10:36 am

@Toast: that's not entirely correct. The butterfly never told hero not to trust rgb. Looking back, all it did was ask if she trusted him (to which she replied no), and told her that "this is not his journey" and "these are not his decisions". I think the butterfly is more encouraging her to think for herself.
Besides, based on what might have happened to previous "heroes", maybe it really is wise not to trust rgb. In which case, maybe not trust, but Wisdom could very well still work

Reply idk just thinking out loud (Guest), May 17th, 2015, 1:46 pm

@AceofSpades: nice theory, but I'm still vying for the butterfly being 'anxiety' or something along those lines. IE something that seems to be wise or makes logical sense at the time, but really just makes you panic and thus more vulnerable.

Also, butterflies in your chest/stomach? Eh, just a thought.

Reply AceofSpades, May 18th, 2015, 5:56 pm

@idk just thinking out loud: that's also very possible. I know I said I didn't think the butterfly is evil, I could very well be wrong. Or at least, it could represent something negative.

The whole "butterflies in your stomach" thing is a really interesting thought, too.

Reply ara_macao (Guest), May 21st, 2015, 12:35 am

@AceofSpades: Doubts are caterpillary things ... perhaps this is the mature form of a Doubt.

Reply Mano (Guest), May 22nd, 2015, 1:14 am

@ara_macao: it could be skepticism. Telling you to ask questions and think instead of just distrusting strange things on instinct alone.

Reply nealywilly (Guest), May 18th, 2015, 7:51 pm

@AceofSpades: Could the butterfly be independence? Surely that must precede wisdom. But then again, that has to be preceded by self awareness / consciousness.

@idk: also intrigued by butteryfly / anxiety

Maybe it's meant to be more than one thing (like a butterfly's metamorphosis): caterpillars of doubts lead to anxiety then awareness / perspective then independence (of thought), then wisdom???

I'm way overthinking this GREAT COMIC!!!!!

Reply lacan76 (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 10:23 pm

Maybe the butterfly is hero.

Reply Toast (Guest), May 16th, 2015, 11:12 pm

I don't think the butterfly should be trusted, given that the page after its introduction where it told hero not to trust rgb, hero was found with a lie.

Reply Izu-chan (Guest), May 17th, 2015, 12:29 am

.......Is Hero's schism healing?!

Please make panel 5 into a wallpaper, it is creepy/groovy as hell

Reply Guest, May 17th, 2015, 5:24 pm

The one time RGB attempts to genuinely be nice towards Hero. U tried, bro

Also I love how RGB goes straight to soldier position when Hero shouts at him xD

Seriously excited to see where this will go, regardless how long I have to wait. I love this comic to bits

Reply Shmu (Guest), May 17th, 2015, 6:23 pm

Yikes. I don't think my feelings can handle the amount of cuteness and horror packed into this page.

Reply snip snops (Guest), May 18th, 2015, 9:06 am

did anyone ever think that the butterfly might be hate,,

Reply AceofSpades, May 18th, 2015, 5:59 pm

@snip snops: I swear to god if it is, I'm gonna be pissed xD
I've noticed that it only appears to Hero and is pretty much hiding from rgb... so that's something to think about.

Reply quoi_space (Guest), May 18th, 2015, 10:58 am

alright ok. mod said a long time ago that the butterfly was supposed to look like a face, with the light-grey part looking like a mouth of sorts. It doesn't mean much, but its fun to look at the eye-and-mouth expressions together that the butterfly makes

Reply Gizmo, May 21st, 2015, 3:13 am

Just read the entire comic in once ! This is absolutely awesome !!! I can't wait to see where you laed us ! <3

Reply Zee Werecat, May 21st, 2015, 10:00 am

the look on the butterfly's "eyespots" in the third-to-last panel seems like a look of "Say WHAT now!?" to me. XD

looks like RGB wins this round you little monochrome menace! Yeah, i don't trust that butterfly. ^^;

Reply Guest, May 23rd, 2015, 11:19 am

I love how RBG reaches his hand out in this page and before when Hero reached out to hold RBG's hand, RBG didn't like that. So cool.

Reply Yellow (Guest), May 27th, 2015, 2:55 am

does anyone else notice how the butterfly is appearing in/on Hero's Schism? (might've spelt that wrong)

Reply Faustintine (Guest), May 28th, 2015, 11:10 pm

Shouldn't we be more worried? The first time we met the butterfly it was resting on a plant that proceeded to wither and die horribly after it departed from it...

Reply empyrean01, June 2nd, 2015, 2:41 pm

"SO PLEASE... JUST THIS ONCE... TRUST ME." Aaaaww!!! i get so many feels when rgb says "just this once" >.<

Reply angelccccccc (Guest), July 15th, 2015, 2:21 am

'Trust me.'
Way to ruin the feels butterfly......
And replace it with an even better feels

I want to think that neither the butterfly nor RGB is bad and the buttedfly is trying to protect the hero from the true evil that lies ahead while RGB is asking her to fight it

Reply RadicalTrain, April 7th, 2016, 8:18 pm

I highly doubt TOby trusts RGB..

Reply dynamo5, June 8th, 2016, 11:58 pm

Based on some clues we got from the previous pages, I get the feeling that butterfly is either Hate, or some entity that works with Hate. Examples:

- TOby's "She tore me into twenty pieces and stitched me back together" may have been done with the 'butterfly scissors' shown a few pages back

- It's no secret that Hate and RGB are on opposing ends, and the butterfly seems very intent on painting RGB in a bad light while making itself look like a helpful guide.

- The entire "why am I here" conversation back at Suture that occurred right after Hero spoke to the butterfly and the follow-up "I HATE you!" that happened afterwards.

- This one's mostly speculation, but after rereading this page, I think the butterfly is somehow responsible/had something to do with Negative!RGB's appearance. After all, after witnessing that, it effectively gave Hero a strong reason to distrust and fear RGB, no matter what he says to them. Also, the eye on RGB and the eyes on the butterfly's wings in these panels bare a very strong resemblance. According to Mod's tumblr as well, RGB has no knowledge of Negative!RGB and only seems to appear when he 'dies', which sounds like he either has another personality that he doesn't know about or it's the work of an outside influence.

im currently rereading this comic and have noticed things that i didnt in my first time. in panel 12, where rgb goes in a soldier position, i noticed that the white panel under the black one on his settings seems to be glowing red. it does not make sense as the place is quite dark. but then, it maybe has something to do with the red color bar on his screen. just wondering tho.
