Comforting Layton by JustCallMeMental Comforting Layton by JustCallMeMental
Haha, the title is a liieeeeee

To be honest, I feel like I'd have a pretty tenuous grasp on reality if most of the people I'd met in recent times were robots, hallucinations, secret denizens of an underground city, or Don Paolo. I'm sure there are even stranger things in the prequels. I congratulate Luke on his general saneness.

I think I was going for something different with this, but the joke ended up being 'a child's soul is crushed,' which is also the joke in every other Layton comic I've done. I'm so very horrid to fictional children. :noes:

I mostly drew this at five a.m on no sleep, so I'm sure to realize how little sense this makes when I'm more lucid. Also the art is inconsistent oh my god my apologies

Oh my gosh poor Luke is scarred for life >.< I hadn't really thought about it much but a lot of their adventures are just illusions in one way or another O.o

I figure on DA people can generally exercise caution when looking up fanart and all that since it's a given they'll be rife with spoilers, haha. Then again, I don't think I tagged the spoilers on tumblr either, where it can be kind of impolite not to. :,D So thanks for reminding me! It's something I should keep tabs on next time around. c:

Does Luke cry this much in the actual games? Because that would seem a fun game to play, making him cry. XD

I love how Layton's always such a jerk in your comics. I really need to give the series a try when I have extra cash. :heart:

This is funny, don't worry, it makes sense to me! When you lay out the context of what Luke has been through... it's pretty odd. x'D
Oh have you heard? The 'final' Professor Layton game has been announced! Apparently, it'll be the last one in the series with Professor Layton as the main protagonist!! :icongrosssobplz: I need comfort!

Oh, that's good. 8D I'm glad I've made a little sense. xD And Luke's been through some strangeness, indeed. :icongreennoesplz:


I knooowwww, I just heard. D:> I haven't played any of the prequel games yet, but now I feel as if I should savor them. :noes: I was really hoping to see more of the story after Unwound Future! ;A; Maybe they'll have Luke as a main character with Layton being secondary, which wouldn't be horrible, but I dunno. D: I sort of like Protagonist! Layton right where he is, aha.

So which ones haven't you played yet? So far, I've played them all up to the latest released one in the UK. If you haven't played them yet, then you must! They're all really good. :iconasdfghplz: Yeah, they haven't followed the story from the Unwound Future yet, and they really need to!

I'm really hoping its not the end, I have hope from wiki as it says he won't be the main protagonist anymore, which means more games with another character right? I'm guessing it will be his son, as another game is based around Laytons son... or something. I really hope it'll be Luke though. :iconcryforeverplz:
