It may be cheating to use the device of dreaming to let anything and everything be exposed to Winston, let him go as insane as possible, and then have him wake up and all is fine.

But hey, this does happen in dreams, so I’m allowed!

Wait a minute, this is my comic. Anything is allowed anyway!

Oh, okay. I’m still setting up the ground rules for this world, so I don’t break them in the future. That always annoys me in other stories.
