The current thing isn't a flashback, so to speak. We're just going into the story of how Mimi became Her. I guess GT WHAM could be considered the current storyline, then this is an off shoot.
Flashbacks are an insanely popular way to tell stories, especially for most web comics. Like The Zombie Hunter's Comic. THE biggest god damn flash back that I've ever seen. Its a great way to tell a story or provide background information, but its also the easiest.
Bleed uses them too much.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.
