    I don’t know if this was intentional, but I laughed with relief when it turned from a horror story about Shannon trying to wrangle her kids through a divorce into a horror story about Shannon’s couch trying to eat her.Report

    I was also relieved when I realized the bruises were from the couch, and not that she had some horrible illness.

    (Or will part 2 surprise me again?)

    But yeah, very much would like to punch her ex in the mouth.Report

    Let me say again- I loooove this! And having the editor perk of having previewed parts 2 and 3, I can say it does not disappoint!Report

    eeee, that’s creepy! Talk to Abby Howard about doing the art for it, maybe.

    Will Shannon figure out in time that there’s a spell forcing her to go back to the apartment, or will she convince herself that her feelings of “this place isn’t so bad, I just have to stay away from the couch, I deserve this really, I’m such a loser, maybe I should just let the couch eat me and everyone would be better off” are entirely her own?Report
