So like, what you're saying is, neither of us exist yet, and because we don't exist yet, we can't exist period?

Yeah, more or less, that's exactly what I'm saying.

But like... What if I tried really hard?

Wait, Marcel-

I don't think I looked like this. What is this hair?
And these clothes?

This is why I tried to tell you to wait.

What is wrong with my arms?
And like... All my muscles are gone!

And what have we learned?

Can you not antagonize me right now? I'm having a crisis over this.
Like... You didn't force yourself to manifest yet-

And I'm not going to, because I am not an idiot.

I just feel so... So...

So woefully incomplete. You're supposed to be the main character. You weren't supposed to look this drab.
Am I incompetent?

Wait. Wait, please.

The earlier version of you looked so much better.
Wouldn't this comic be better if you were him?
I suppose I would have to erase you, but... You forced me to animate your birth, and I didn't want to.

No, nonono. Please, you don't have to do this, please, don't kill me.

I'm not sure whether you get a say in this.

God, no, no, this wasn't supposed to be how this went. This is why I tried to come here alone.
Marcel, I swear, I wasn't trying to abandon you, I wasn't going to leave you for dead.
Please. Please. I'd sooner... I'd sooner kill myself than kill you.


*Sniffle*... Ah... Ahuh?

Don't grovel, that's so out of character for you.
