The Princess

To My Beloved Royalty...

I'm enjoying all of your speculations on Molly. Yes, she is..... wildly annoying. But I hope to do the work to make her understandable at the very least.

I'm considering doing a Patreon donation thingie for this comic.  I'd put a Paypal button on the drunkduck site but didn't get anything, and this is a labor of love. Still..... this is something I'm considering doing, thanks to your kind interest in helping me out.

You are all the best!

I'd totally throw you a dollar if you set up a Patreon. I'm seriously loving that site.

Yikes! Somebody really needs to regulate this kid's meds. Or get her on some.


It'll be interesting to see what Irma's reaction will be to a friendship between Sarah and Molly. (I'm sticking with the name "Irma" for the sake of convenience, since that's the name s/he's primarily known by). In a roundabout way, it might get Irma and Sarah talking again. And if Irma and Molly meet, I pity Molly. Irma does not suffer fools, or annoying people, gladly.

You do have a pretty good knack for that!

Curious, Molly went from a vest to a jacket between last week and today?

I actually kind of liked the vest look. I'd probably love it if it wasn't on a character that terrifies me.

What's with all the Molly hate? While she is not my favourite character (that honor goes to Irma), I don't understand why you seem to dislike her so much. Yes, she seems to be rather clingy and she is trying way to hard to become Sarah's friend? But terrifying? And wishing for her to die? Really? Don't you think this is a little bit too harsh?  At this point we don't know anything about her or why she behaves like this. I say let's wait until we find out more about her before we wish death upon her. Maybe she is allright after all. But if she turns out to be skinning other girls in her basement to make a bodysuit I'll take everything back that I just said.

That's quite the releif. Looking forward to learn more about her. And I hope Irma isn't too harsh on her if she and Sarah do end up as friends.

And thanks for making these comics. I have discovered your comics somehere in January and kinda became addicted to Sarah. Keep up the great work!  ThumbsUp

@Thelastinline Because she comes off as having some very terrible ulterior motive. It's the Free Candy van personified.

She doesn't like Sarah for Sarah, she sees some object, and it's shiny and pretty, and typically, that kind of personality tends to smash the "shiny and pretty" thing when it turns out to not be exactly as their imaginary ideal put it.

She mirrors a very dangerous, obsessive personality type, and Sarah will most likely end up being abused, mistreated, and greatly hurt.

Now, it's totally up to the author how this plays out, but in general, it's a "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!" scenario. Someone who should be avoided at all costs. Sarah, being the innocent little thing she is, isn't ready to deal with the fallout from setting that kind of personality off, and in general, it means she'll likely get physically hurt, and make a very dangerous enemy for quite a long while.

When things like this happen in real life, it's often the need for restraining orders and early funerals. So, seeing all of the warning signs, and watching her recur and not deviate from it, it's very chilling.

It could be sent many other ways, but at the moment, Molly is highly characteristic of a dangerous abuse relationship, and Sarah is in the typical "vulnerable" stage that most abusers take advantage of to implant themselves into the victim's life.

Considering Sarah gets physically assaulted every few dozen pages, I fear for her safety greatly. This is a great comic, but if you've been paying attention, it's pretty dark. It's helpful, but Sarah does take a lot of punishment. Chuck and Penny take out their angst on her because she's a socially acceptable target. It's somewhat impersonal. Molly would be set up to hunt her.

I want to believe there can be a happy ending to that, but in general, it's not, and even if there is, it seems like it would be hard to sell it.

TL;DR: It's like watching the girl in a horror movie run upstairs--always a bad idea, and virtually never ends well. Confused

Speaking as one of the Molly "haters", I don't necessarily think Molly is dangerous, but she IS overbearing in the extreme, the sort of person I go out of my way to avoid. I agree wholeheartedly with Being Useful's statement that Molly likes Sarah not for WHO she is--she hardly knows her, after all-but WHAT she is. Maybe that'll change, but boy, is this kid making a lousy first impression.
