Best. Gift. EVER. Amnesia related!

Dude, you guys.

You guys.

YOU GUYS.

Guess what Luster got me for Christmas?

Omg. OMG.

She got me. An autograph from Mikael Hedberg. And who is Mikael Hedberg? The writer for mother fuckin' Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: Justine!

But no, it wasn't just an autograph/signature. No no no no, this man went all out in this gift.

He actually wrote an excerpt from Justine's soul journal entries from age eleven - a part regarding Justine and Clarice that wasn't in the game!

Was that all? Oh no. Oh no no no no, there's more.

On the opposite side of the page is the picture of Justine and Alois I drew ( this one, actually: fav.me/d4f86dh ) with a small letter. It reads:

"Among all the tragic figures I have created over the years, Justine will always be special to me. Her disturbing childhood and teasing persona has lingered with me for quite a while now.

"I knew from the start, she would be difficult to sympathize with, and realized many would simply dismiss her as insane or evil. All I could do was hope some would take the effort to understand and care for her as I did. After reading your excellent comic, I think it is safe to say, you do.

With deepest gratitude and appreciation. Thank you, [my real name]."


And he signed the bottom.

Even now, I'm still speechless. Oh god, the one thing that drew me into Amnesia in the first place was the storyline. It's so deliciously demented and disturbing; I've yet to find anything with such amazing visuals/strong story in a short amount of time - especially regarding Amnesia: Justine. And to have the writer read, like, AND tell me that I get Justine from my fan comic is just. Oh god. I'm at a loss of words again! Hell, the actual letter/excerpt itself is printed on what imitates a torn/slightly burnt page from a book, rather than a plain ol' piece of paper.

I didn't expect this at all. And to think, originally I wasn't planning on uploading my doujinshi at all, because I was mostly using it for practice! I don't even-

Thank you SO much, Luster! And thank you Mikael Hedberg for going above and beyond to make this a truly unforgettable holiday!

I seriously have the best girlfriend in the world. <333

I keep asking her how she got it, and all she said was "Magic~ <3". xD Either way, I'm astonished!

I'm leaning towards it! It's pretty short, but it gives magnificent insight to Justine and Clarice's relationship, as well as a possible fear of Justine's. In the excerpt, as with the soul entries, she "was the one kneeling" that day. <3

I never understood what she meant when she was like "I was the one kneeling" or etc.
