A couple of answers, actually. This fulfills a promise Jack made years ago, and also sort of maybe explains why Sandra appeared human during her walkabout, and why she eventually changed back. And I suppose this resolves something that Sandra's been looking for from day one.

They grow up so fast.

Now, fair warning! Next Friday and Monday are going to be illustrations celebrating April Fools and Easter. It seems only right! Right? Not like I need some breathing room while I try to stay on top of the current breakneck pace with which this comic is hurtling wildly towards its conclusion! Let's all just enjoy our little holiday. Well, not all of us. Some of us still have to work. But maybe you've got it easy.

Huh. I thought he'd say "I found out how to return you to human form" but that she'd decline at this point. You normally think "what's done by magic can be undone by magic."

Well the funny thing is one of the strongest magic users in DC is unable to simply reverse something that is done by completed magic. Doctor fate can interrupt in alter or red do the effects of incomplete magic magic that has not run its course once is complete he is helpless to do anything at that particular moment. Maybe he can find something that will make gate the effects later Li can't simply go O you were turned from human to would I don't want that and do it. Case an example if you're being in turn slowly to stone by a curse and hes there he can't interrupt a reverse the curse love your are ready completely stone then he cannot simply undo it.

Being able to undo something is a strictly human notion, the means to which is sought by Wizards, the desperate, and quantum physicists alike. There is no evidence any such thing has ever existed in this universe.

Time. Marches. On.

Sort of expected. What Sandra is has become integral to who she is. Undoing that would go against character development. And, as we know, magic has a flair for the dramatic.
A question, however: how exactly does this explain why she was human? The Omphalos decided to deny Sandra herself until she found herself, from what I understood, but doing so by reverting her form to the time when she was closest to her caretaking nature seems a weird way to do it.

Wait, does magic has a 'flair for the dramatic' here too? How I'm supposed to keep the webcomics' worlds separated then? Or they simply aren't?

Magic ALWAYS has a flair for the dramatic or it's not really magical. :P

Hmantegazzi - If you're referring to EGS, Moperville was actually mentioned in this comment just recently. Plus there's that chick (forgot her name) who's existence in comics is to appear in any that a creator decides to include her in, and she originated here in Zebra Girl.

So I don't think this world needs to be separated from any others. ^^

Hmm. Are you referring to Jen Stone, Novalyyn? I did say that if anyone wants to adopt her, they're free to do so.

I think Novalyyn is referring to Jenny Everywhere?

Yeah, I thought that sounded more like Jenny Everywhere, but she never appeared in this comic. I wanted to have her once or twice, but the closest she ever got to Zebra Girl was... maybe a crossover. It's hard to recall, it's been so long.

As the comic draws to a close, something I really hope isn't left unsettled is her relationship with her own mother. We've had little glimpses and so far everyone else in her life (old friends, Mike, etc.) has been brought in on what she is now, while the forced distance from her mother has apparently been a consistent source of pain for her.

They do grow up so fast. You for example grew up from a very entertaining comic book writer into a skilled writer that leaves very little (maybe nothing) to chance and manages to tie up things that most writers would forget about.

(Unless you have always beem so and played us all, long con style! o.รด)

Great work, Joe.

This is why I love the Forsaken in Warcraft.My nerds and I did a sort of Otherworld kind of side story, in a nasty, arctic purgatory zone where the dead were just as alive as the living.

Watching the Forsaken and Death Knight characters deal was amazing.

My own character got herself frozen to death because being alive is hard, then rezzed by her paladin buddy, only to be pretty okay with her undeath.

Her life was pretty miserable, but as a sentient zombie, she made so many friends and even got to help fight demons, naga and giant, zombie dragons, as she didn't have to be so afraid.
It was pretty sweet to really see her come into full acceptance of her existence. She was one of those fictional characters that really feel like they're an extra person that takes residence in your creativity.

I like those arcs. I like Sandra's arc.

I started reading this years ago, but kinda separated a few years to now. Something brought me back and now I'm glad to be caught up. This is a wonderful story and I love the evolution.
