If you think about it, poor Heather. She's got to have the worst time sorting out how she personally feels about situations and people.

And... I accidentally posted as a guest down below. CF logged me out for some reason. Also, I'm a little tipsy right now, so that might be to blame. Anyway, I said things down below. Read them. :o

Reminds me a lot of Raven from Teen Titans!

In what way exactly?

I think she might just mean Heather's general attitude? Is that accurate in the slightest, Proxy?

Sort of--Raven is an empath as well (I don't think the cartoon ever showed that? but it's in the comics), and she was known to struggle with discerning emotion sources/keeping it separate from her own a little bit, and then she started projecting it.

Nice job on the effects of her powers. :D

I guess this is why telepaths/empaths are typically very neutral/non-emotional, since they're having to deal with everyone else's feelings being projected onto them.

Thanks, took a little tweaking to get it the way I wanted it.

Yeah, but the biggest reason I did it this way is because I didn't want it to be easy for her. I didn't want it to become a question of: "well why don't they just use the empath?" The reason being, because her powers aren't easily controlled.

True. Even mundane empaths have to compartmentalize a lot to keep their heads straight. I'm a pretty emotionally expressive person, but I have to keep everyone else's crap in its own little box to stay sane sometimes.

Seth did an excellent job with the colours and lighting in the this one.

Also, I'm really, really happy everyone has responded so well to Heather's little mini-arc here. Seth and I talked about this a TON and we have more stuff planned later down the road on the "being an empath is hard as frick" front, so it's super awesome to see people enjoying it.

I like how the consequences of her powers are being handled. Very cool. (Not so cool for her, but cool in a story way ;) )
