This is a short story that's part of a bigger story I've been writing for quite some time.
Her name is Abby, and she's a character that close to my heart.
I would have never been able to submit this without the help of Celx-Requin.
He's the guy who put the whole shebang together. Check out his stuff!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I had writing and drawing little Abby.
Happy Halloween!

Jesus Christ people, will you look at the credits before messaging Celx about "stolen art"? How can you people mistake my drawings in this for his? I'm not trying to be an ass, but to some of you see a sketchy style and go "OMG DAT SUMEUNES STUFF !!1111!"? The art and story is mine, Celx graciously did the programing and the panel animations. I mean come on! Read the goddamn commentary below the flash people.

You need to do Castlevania music. You're that new special someone with a new idea on old tricks. I really hope money finds you and lets you explore further.

I once dabbled in piano when i was younger, sadly the passion withered away though i've had ideas for other things. I hope things work out and at this point i will do something that will kill me and be happy then hate a job and kill myself. thank you you are too kind.

I love it, the well thought out story, I really felt sorry for Abby and how her childhood was stolen from her, the drawing is unique and quite beautiful and the music is enchanting and really sets the mood for the story, I hope more like this one.

Absolutely Beautiful, Yet Perfectly Horrific

This story is the perfect blend of beautiful pain and agony with the struggles our lonely main character Abby has to go through. If there are truly Vampires or demon blood-sucking creatures, i'm sure their emotions and characteristics might match Abby's. Well Done, well done...

Rated 5 / 5 stars


An engaging story of the pains of immortality with a touch of insanity to drive the point home. You didn't shy away from the risque either. The detail put into the religious part of the story and the attention and wording of her lament over never being able to have a child were as beautiful as they were heartbreaking. This is, without a doubt, one of the best halloween submissions on this site.

I would love to see more works like this from you. It didn't need animation or color or flashy effects to be brilliant. Just a good solid story with clear brilliant pictures and complimenting music.

a talent for storytelling such as this is so rare. I got a taste and now I want more. I await with bated breath.
