Another Tom Petty hit.

Even though the lyrics are pretty rough, the song itself is surprisingly mellow. Oh, and the acoustic lyrics are slightly different than the performance lyrics, so if it seems like I switch between the two, its because I never remember which is which.

..those wounds aren't closing, are they?

If after an altercation of some sort, Toni feels like singing these lyrics, then some sort of paradigm shift is taking place in her mental constitution, something for the better.

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: After being attacked for no good reason, the mind goes in two directions - despair, fight, or exaltation.

Usually when Toni is attacked, verbally or physically, she shuts down and goes into despair. The only time she really fights back is against her brother.

Exaltation, in my mind, is something else entirely. Abuse is taken, and then instead of feeling bad, or fighting, it is used to make the person experiencing it stronger. For all the times Toni has been taken down, she rarely uses it to find strength. But now, she is outright attacking the hurt in herself and trying to be stronger for it.

You are right - she is going through a serious mental shift.

I know it took me a long time to get to that same point, and now that I feel it, I can never go back. When I have a problem, or are run down, I latch onto a song and sing, or scream, or do whatever I have to in expressing myself, until I am beating whatever caused me to feel down. (Holy crap that was a run on sentence). I just hope Toni is going to find her strength and grow from every experience, positive or negative, to shape her life.

BTW---Crummy drawing and art style or not, depending on one's taste in comics, congratulations on this installment, your 300th one ! A major accomplishment, indeed ! You have also doubled your fan base to 12, since I was Fan Girl Number 6 when I came on board !

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Thanks! I noticed that too, it just didn't feel like anything important. Plus, its technically with 3 filler pages, so we have to wait till 303 for it to really count.

As for the drawing, you should see page 530. It singlehandedly shows me that I can do real art if I try hard enough. Took my two hours on 1/9 of a page, and man did it work out.

I'm really glad you've been with me for so long. It means a lot to me, regardless of when you joined.
