If the Internet were a Twinkie, drama would be the oily sheen that oozes from its pores.

I actually feel sorry for her, because she clearly seems to be suffering from a mental illness rather than being actively malicious. I've struggled with bipolar depression and I can see myself in her.

That's a new idea for me...I just thought she was terminally self-centered as a character flaw, not as an illness. But I guess if that's how she sees the world, it's a disability, isn't it? Thank you for the insight!

I'm looking it more in this light -

I know an artist who knows her fans and has them wrapped around her finger. She can totally say something that is just ambiguous enough to make people feel sorry for her. She appears to be totally be oblivious to about how people will react, but she knows. And she says things like that ALL THE TIME to get support from her fans when she feels insulted.

Not sure if Sakura is going to turn her fans on the guilty party, though. The artist I spoke of will then give names, and the angry mob moves in for the Internet kill. A person smarter than me and I managed to reveal the true character of this artist, but it took forever. And lots of proof. She had emotionally hurt a lot of her rival artists before we were able to stop her, though.

I feel Sakura knows exactly what she's doing. She isn't sincere about people deleting her - she's intentionally being ambiguous to rile up her friends so they'll give her tons of support while growling at Minty for her. While Sakura appears to be innocent and sweet.

D: Noooooo, not Kimono's sister!

Hmm. That's a plausible interpretation. That would actually be an interesting storyline for the comic to pursue, although possibly too dark for my favorite dose of sunshine. It's just when I've felt like shit I really do feel that my friends might as well delete me from their lives, although I've gotten better over the years. Hint: love your friends but don't put them on a pedestal.

That's a good hint.

One of the problems with people who idolize themselves is that their friends and fans are often self-blinded to the narcissism going on. Some people just want to be elevated by the people they feel are awesome, whether it's good for both parties or not.

I'm hoping Kimono's sister isn't that kind of manipulative, but I kinda got the feeling from the way Kimono tells Minty about her sister that Sakura is really manipulative.
