Not exactly a Christmas page, but Merry Christmas!
Some parts of this page are weird. This is intentional. Hopefully it makes some amount of sense, but some of the differences should be explained in the next couple pages.
Basically, I would like to re-state from the page that his memories of the events are somewhat confused and inconsistent (like the colors in the first two panels, which are not possible for him without magic), at least in part due to trying to repress his memories. This is the first person he killed, and his friend just died in front of him. Things are bound to be a bit weird.
Also, if you happened to check in the first hour, you would have noticed the image was broken... oops.
Edit: FYI, The next page will be the second part of the cataclysm/history extra, since I am out of buffer, and I am at my folk's place for Christmas.
