673 This was a really difficult chapter for me to write and draw and I was really nervous about the response. And while this might sound weird, your reactions have been everything I'd hoped for. Thank you! <3

I don't know what was really the point of this girl. Oh well.

@Salimus: Pathos. We get to know her so it really hurts when she dies. Makes the bad guys that much more reprehensible.

@Magnus Archon: What we know about her isn't sympathetic though. If a character is written to die, you don't write them as a jerk. If they are, no one cares when they die. In fact, some readers and happy when characters like that die. It makes you want to pat on the back anyone that killed her.
If you're trying to make a reader feel for someone who's going to die, this isn't it.

@Salimus: I guess as a writer, I bungled something.
Phoebe wasn't intended to be a hated jerk and I guess my attempts to portray her as a sympathetic character were too little, too late.

I'll try and learn from this to grow as a writer :)

I’m reading through this for the first time, and the Phoebe discourse made me pause to say: I actually found her to be a good character. Snooty, sure, but her interactions with Angela were cute, and she was only 15 (16 for a brief while :/). I actually got chills when she died, so I don’t think you messed up anything with her character! Sometimes people just won’t react the way you had hoped.

Tbh I actually was convinced Ginny was going to be a reborn there for awhile, especially when Doug was going through his hit list— I was totally expecting it to end with Ginny. Anyway, I’ve really been enjoying the Reborn so far!
