A Long Time Ago 20 by Hammelherd A Long Time Ago 20 by Hammelherd
Sweet Truffula, I've drawn twenty pages of this! o.O

So, first off, yes. This is a comic about the Once-ler and Norma's relationship. If it wasn't evident up to this point that that's where I was going with this, then I'll just put it out there. I ship NormaXOnce-ler. (Norm-ler?) I think that there is a large gap in the Lorax universe just begging to be filled with cute goodness, and as long as it keeps popping in my head, I'm going to keep drawing it.

That being said, I also want to explain those last two panels. They shared a very long, potentially deep talk while walking, and he read the signals a little wrong. (Hence the journal saying "I feel like I'd made a friend" while he's going in for the goodnight kiss ;)) She honestly did not realize that he tried to make an advance. Also, since I'm pegging her at eighteen or so in my comic, he's a few years older, and she likely doesn't think that the Once-ler would be interested in her. She also is a little scared of getting hurt, because her parents have a somewhat rocky relationship. Therefore, she tries to avoid developing those kind of feelings in the first place.
For now.
