THE FORUM DEMANDS BLOOD...

Tamara said:
I’M BACK! It’s been almost a YEAR since Zules has kept me away from Exvulnerum but I’M HERE NOW. I’ve been doing some reflecting for the past 30 seconds and I just realised that I’ve been readlogging Exvulnerum since 2019! Back then, I was a broke college student with no life who was trying to find some entertainment (and $$$) after classes reviewing things for people and now here I am working my first job as a corporate slave trying to find some entertainment after work reviewing things for people. Thanks for giving me that, Exvulnerum! Btw, I went back to the very first chapter that I readlogged and - cringe! I wonder if I’ll be cringing at this one too in three years? Remind me to check back in when it’s 2025. But, on the other hand, I always wondered if people really did find it any entertaining to read someone else’s reactions to a comic and now I know that it actually kind of, sort of, maybe is (as narcissistic as that sounds).



Anyway, you’re not here to read about me! Let’s put the spotlight back on our dynamic duo who I’ve missed oh so very much! Evember! Should I be worried about the fact that this chapter is called “Something Ugly”. We’ve had terrible, horrible chapters and their titles weren’t even as scary as this one is. Haven’t we already had enough something uglies?! Why do we have an entire chapter dedicated to it this time?! What are you doing to us, Zules??? What are you going to do to us?!?!

6843

Tamara said:
Oh Amber, if only you knew what we knew! Actually, all of you! If only you all knew what we knew; Exvulnerum would only be 10 pages long. Ugh, the fact that out of everything we have witnessed over the past 18 chapters from suspected werewolves to monstrous scorpions, it was Dzuna who managed to dull Amber’s spark. Screw you, Dzuna! Where’s the hot dog song when we need it?!

6844

Tamara said:
Uh oh, I hope Amber sees what Dzuna’s doing here; Taylor Swift wrote a whole 10-minute song about it. People who don’t want you to suffer don’t use guillotines on you!

6845

Tamara said:
Anything? Like anything, anything? Can she make people fall in love or do the rules from Aladdin apply in this universe too? Couldn’t she make the King fall in love with whoever (like the undead hobo or modern-day Hitler) and then let the curse be transferred so they can all live their happy ever afters? I think I’m blessed to be on the extreme end of the introvert spectrum because I could happily live a forever life in a desert in the middle of nowhere if I had the curse. If things get lonely, I’ll always have Dzuna and her shenanigans! She can build me a minimalist palace and get me a lifetime Netflix subscription.



I wonder what Dzuna’s definition of fun is?! She definitely seems like she has the backstory of being the kid who ate glue and drowned little kittens.

6846

Tamara said:
A lot of uncomfortable things have happened in this story but somehow a parent saying that they needed to have “the talk” with their daughter about men is one of the most uncomfortable for me. Oh, men. One day they’re all sweet and romantic and the next day they leave you writhing in pain with a centuries-old curse.

Tamara said:
All that money and the Istobals couldn’t afford marriage counselling?! If only you knew, Mrs. Istobal. If only you knew. But I do feel for this woman, I really do. I hope her Evey is out there somewhere! Don’t let your husband stop you from finding the love of your life!

6848

Tamara said:
I mean, I don’t know what she did to have her own house and her own automobile but I don’t think Mr. Istobal’s love was completely profitless for her. Good thing not every man out there is Mr. Istobal, eh? *cough Cygnus cough* I’d agree with the matriarch here if she was talking about someone other than Evey. Otherwise, shush! Let your young teenage daughter live her young teenage girl experience (even if it is riddled with an unusual amount of supernatural curses and fantastical beasts)!

6849

Tamara said:
Omg, woman! An adolescent boy who you think gave your daughter the mandatory young love heartbreak does not deserve the same wrath as your absent husband! Leave them alone! But to be fair, if Amber was actually screwed over mentally and emotionally by a guy, I do find comfort in the fact that she has a mother who will look out for her. But still! Your motherly affairs are not required right now!

6850

Tamara said:
Gee, sexist much? I wonder what she thinks of her own sons? Deal with it promptly by all means but let Amber go do what she needs to do!

6851

Tamara said:
Yay, she’s finally leaving! Go! Shoo, shoo! Is this when Evey is going to catch up with them? Is this where we’re going to have our next Evember moment?! Let’s gooooo!

Umm… Evey? If you’re going to show up, now would be a very good time to do so.

6869

Tamara said:
Knock knock! Who’s there? Evey in his Chevy (or it better be because we’re wasting too much time already)!

Yeah, sorry about that. I’ll leave the joke-writing up to Zules from now on.

6870

Tamara said:
IT’S THE WOLFMAN! IT’S EEEEEVVVVVEEEEEMMMMMBBBBBEEEEERRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m just going to stare at this page for another minute and pretend that everything is alright with the world again.

6871

Tamara said:
I wonder how Evey is going to explain that he couldn’t help Amber on the worst night of her life because he was… hibernating. Where were Dirty Dan and Pinhead Larry when we needed them?!

6872

Tamara said:
“I’m sorry, Amber. I messed up and fell in love with you. That was never the plan!” <3



Fun fact: I once unironically used “plummeting moons” in a normal conversation. I hope you’re happy that you’ve indoctrinated me with your wacky vocabulary, Zules!

Tamara said:
I just want to take a moment to say that these 5 panels of a 2D comic are so well done that I can vividly visualise Amber reliving her torture in the hospital and being on the verge of a nervous breakdown due to the trauma triggered by the memory of it. Everything from the eyes darting back and forth to the hyperventilating; it’s all so real! Only you, Zules! Only you!

6907

Tamara said:
… I’m sure she’ll be able to stop thinking about the crippling, agonising pain that would have killed any normal, mortal human being but, oh yeah, she cannot die so she had no choice but to live with it! No big deal! And oh yeah, it’s also kind of, sort of, maybe, perhaps your fault! No biggie! Don’t worry about it!

6908

Tamara said:
I know it’s not exactly the same but it’s amusing to see the parallel between now and when Evey was the King of Pain (hah, this is just the attention deficit talking but for a split second, I mentally pronounced ‘pain’ in French as in ‘bread’ and being the King of Bread sounds a lot more ideal). Evey couldn’t quite tell her why he needed to go where he needed to go when he needed to go there; it was almost the exact same back-and-forth between the two with the “We need to go!” “But-” “Let’s go!” “But-” Ah, I’ve missed these two!

6909

Tamara said:
Hmm… Judging by the nature of this situation and the title of this chapter (I’m still not over that, the inevitable dread that I do not know of is looming in the back of my mind), I wonder what’s really in Calit?

6910

Tamara said:
An unsolicited, genuine compliment from Evey?! Is this a fever dream?! Please excuse the noise that is my fangirling!

*FANGIRLING INTENSIFIES*

No words, just incomprehensible noises.

7011

Tamara said:
HAH. Don’t worry about the purple ghostess! The hot dog song is to Dzuna what crosses and holy water are to regular demons.

7012

Tamara said:
I was going to ask Evey if he was sure about that but then he beat me to it. Ah Dzuna, you know you’re a special kind of evil when nothing nice can be said about you without a disclaimer!

7013

Tamara said:
*Googles tree nether regions* Oh my!

I’m convinced Dzuna dreads going back to Evey as much as he dreads her coming back to him so this is a win-win situation she’s playing at! But will Amber buy it? Let’s find out…

7014

Tamara said:
Ugh, Dzuna. Why are you anywhere?!

7015

Tamara said:
I’ve never been the King of Pain and therefore, I cannot judge the things one would do to get rid of the curse… but damnit Evey. You’re being your own prosecutor in this case!

7016

Tamara said:
I see that Dzuna is permanently in her mean girl era and nobody is here for it. Burn her at the stake! Are all curse guardians like this? What would happen if you put two Dzuna-like curse guardians together? Would they out-curse-guardian each other?


Well, I hate to give it to her but she does have a point…

Tamara said:
YOU resolved and are causing us to suffer horrendously, Dzuna PurpleGhostess.
You! No one else but you!

And lest we forget the things she has done to cause pain to the already suffering King of Pain… Tell ‘em, Evey! Tell ‘em!

7133

Tamara said:
Can we all take a very long moment to appreciate the character development here?! I’ve been waiting YEARS for these two to arrive where they are (well, minus one of them having the curse and all that) and it’s finally happening!!! Shut up and kiss, you two!

Did the understanding and compassion in this room repel Dzuna?
7134

Tamara said:
*HEAVY BREATHING* *INTENSIFIED FANGIRLING* *SCREAMING, CRYING, THROWING UP* OOOOOMMMMMGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this isn’t the greatest testament of anyone’s love (Evey transferring the curse to Amber and Amber wanting to bear his pain for him) then I don’t know what is!

My heart rate: 120bpm. My standards: raised.

7135

Tamara said:
Dangerously hitching rides on truck beds and gifting rodents to each other! Oh my! Probably the most twisted things that have happened in this story other than setting an entire building on fire and burning people alive just so one person could feel the pain of them all! Shiver me timbers!

Tamara said:
So, Dzuna’s game plan is to convince someone with Exvulnerum (who quite possibly experienced one of the worst episodes of it) that someone else who had Exvulenerum is the bad guy for wanting to get rid of it? Seems like a solid plan! How does Dzuna manage to talk so much without a mouth?!

7159

Tamara said:
Gee, for some reason, I never even considered the possibility of a baby being eligible to inherit Exvulnerum. Surely Zules wouldn’t be that evil?! Let’s say that a baby did get cursed, I’d like to comfort myself by assuming that the baby would instantly transfer it back to their parent/guardian. Right?! Right. Also, Evey is a literal kid who bore this curse just after he witnessed his father unalive himself. You can’t blame the guy for his 2% skimmed evil.

7160

Tamara said:
Why do you do this to us, Zules? Why? Can someone just read the rest of the comic for me and let me know where the happy part that I can fast-forward to is? I’ll give you $3 and half a Snickers bar for your service.

7161

Tamara said:
The amount of secondhand mortification I’m feeling right now for a fictional 2D character is unreal.

7162

Tamara said:
I don’t know how and why Evey is still standing there, I would be halfway across the country by now if I were him.

7163

Tamara said:
Evey in the last two panels is an embodiment of me at 2am remembering that one cringey thing I did on a random Wednesday back in 2016. I’d quite literally die if I had a curse deimon in purple leggings play a flashback of it with an audience.

Tamara said:
Why are you making Evey (and us) live through this twice, Zules?! WHY?! WHAT IS THE REASON?!

7228

Tamara said:
Yeah, I definitely forgot how bad this was. Thanks for the unsolicited reminder of something I’ve tried very hard to repress, Zules! I hope this tirade against you will end soon but at the pace we’re travelling at, I highly doubt so!

7229

Tamara said:
I’m going to ignore everything else (for the sake of my sanity) and say that the emotion in the last panel is just incredible! Amber not wanting to believe that the Evey she knew was capable of doing such a heinous act and Evey not wanting Amber to believe that he was. Ugh, perfect! And it’s hard for me to give you compliments right now, Zules, so take it and go before I take it back!!!

7230

Tamara said:
I have to give props to Amber if she isn’t even the least bit sympathetic towards Evey after she endured an entire night in the hospital like damn girl, that’s some next level pain tolerance you’ve got there to maintain your morality like that. But… she still hasn’t had the curse for long enough to understand Evey’s desperation to get rid of it.

7231

Tamara said:
Well, I was expecting something ugly… but this is just hideous.

7232

Tamara said:
I wish Amber could see a flashback of the burning building and just about everything else Evey had to go through to understand why he arrived at that conclusion… You can’t like Dzuna if you hate violence! That ghostess is just unholy…

7233

Tamara said:
… I should just destroy all my hopes for Evember into tiny, bite-sized pieces and bury them deep in the grounds of my mental cemetery, shouldn’t I? Amber, oh Amber. I’m sure Evey wishes he didn’t care about you either so that you’d never have to be in this situation in the first place.

7234

Tamara said:
I’ve waited NINE HUNDRED AND THIRTY–THREE PAGES to hear these words and THIS is how it happens?!

Tamara said:
All the pain in this world that Evey has experienced and it’s the pain of love that causes him to have a psychotic breakdown. Sounds about right.

7247

Tamara said:
Well, she’s not going to go home with you after this, Evey. She’s not going to go anywhere with you anymore. You dug your own grave and then Dzuna unearthed you so that she could kill you and bury you again.

7248

Tamara said:
How many more pages of agony do we have to endure?! How many?! I never thought I’d be complaining about Exvulnerum having too many pages but here we are! You’ve done it, Zules! Just when I thought we’ve all lived through the worst! Put me out of my misery already!

7249

Tamara said:
How about you help everyone and remove yourself from ALL of our lives, Dzuna?! Petition to erase the rest of her because clearly her mouth alone wasn’t enough! Maybe if we all collectively protested, Zules will kill her off?! Is that too much to hope for?!

7250

Tamara said:
No words. Just tears. Lots of them.

7251

Tamara said:
Not the disgusting spectacle talking! Why is Evey just standing there and taking her abuse?! Surely he can at least try telling Amber the things he had to go through that drove him to act the way he did?! Surely he can tell her how many of those things were caused by Dzuna for absolutely no reason whatsoever?!

7252

7253

Tamara said:
Not the trash talking (pun(?) intended)! UGH, Evey! I wish you’d use that anger in the first panel to slap Dzuna back into whatever deimon dimension she was birthed from!

7254

7255

Tamara said:
Your mother was NOT right and you better put that bracelet back on right this instant!

I’m literally going to stop reading this if she says West.

IT’S FINALLY OVER! I’m telling you right now that the redemption arc better be in Chapter 19 or I’m calling the webtoon authorities!

I’m not even going to react to this Dear Dzuna because there’s NOTHING Dear about her and I don’t want to read anymore speech bubbles coming out of her non-existent mouth! Death to Dzuna!

7382

Tamara said:
WHAT IS THIS?! Who asked for this?! Okay, I know I asked for this at some point but I don’t want it anymore! I petitioned for Dzuna to be erased from this comic and now there’s an entire chapter dedicated to her?! I’m STRESSED.

7383

Tamara said:
Wow, did we just miss a 1v1 between an adult female Karen and a teenage male Karen? We all know who lost this battle (I mean, as an adult, you’ve already lost the battle when you choose to pick an unnecessary fight with a minor for no apparent reason). I’m glad Amber doesn’t take after her mother…

I wonder what Dzuna would be like as a mother?

7384

Tamara said:
What does this woman even do?! Does anyone know? Is she just here for plot (in)convenience? Jeez, if only she would spend as much time being a good mother as she does complaining about how bad her husband is.

7385

Tamara said:
She looks like the kind of woman who would name her daughter Amberleigh, no surprise there. Well, I have a family who insists on calling me the name I don’t like so I can relate (though I really wish I couldn’t).

7386

Tamara said:
Ah, the classic divorced parents experience! Does this mean we’re getting closer and closer to seeing West?! Ugh. I almost don’t want Amber to go home. And if she goes home… Robin will be there. Surely she realises? Surely she does?!

7387

Tamara said:
I wonder what details her mother filled him in with… And as a parent, I’d say that a teenage boy-induced tantrum of that magnitude is more than worthy to be a cause for concern. Is it too much to ask for half a caring and attentive parent?!

7388

Tamara said:
Is this where Dzuna executes her “BFF” duties? Can she really be any one of those things? Best? Never. Friends? No. Forever? Maybe.

"I'm glad Amber doesn't take after her mother!"

Yes. I too am glad that Amberleigh "SooYoo" Istobal doesn't partake in her mother's wanton threats of legal conflict.
