One of my favorite comic storylines ever...

Was the Something Positive Halloween 2006 story. One of the things I like about S*P is that while its cast of twenty-somethings with varying degrees of misanthropy does occasionally engage in the thing we fantasize about doing when someone pisses us off, there's a good mix of showing these characters are human, and gut punches in that showing that sometimes a snarky retort isn't going to magically make things better.

This is one of those storylines -- a mix of snarky commentary and a gut punch at the end. Plus, demon ferrets. (Which are cute -- I want one.)

It starts here. I so suggest you read through the entire story before making comments. And don't forget to read the bylines at the bottom of the comic.

And, yes, I'm writing about my emotional reaction to a webcomic about D&D stick figures. Deal. Also, the folks at Wikipedia do fast work -- the bit above was already on OotS's page.
