This one kind of occupies a weird place in things and is a big part of why this little arc is happening; it did feel pretty necessary to have something with Alex talking to Cathy about the whole moving away situation, but with her not really being that present it felt like something that it'd be easy to feel kind of bogged down in really showing directly. Working it in as a flashback as part of a great scene I thought worked fine for that, kind of show that the conversation happened and that there's some baggage hanging over it without really needing to devote that much time to it directly.

Really that scene was going to happen in the last post-chapter round of filler, but things kind of just weren't really coming together right for it. Either way, we've got one more page left in this set, and then we'll have the book 4 cover followed by starting up chapter 28, Four Weeks. Really hoping everyone's going to enjoy that chapter because it's pretty experimental.

Heh... This was drawn while my internet was out; I had to use my phone to send it off to Martin. Felt really crummy not being able to get more out, but I also had fun drawing up this crew all being cute. Especially that sentimental shot of Alex bucking up Ropun.

When you think about it, Alex is probably in a weird situation. They formed connections with this crew; heck he was seriously tempted to start dating Ropun. But they know that the odds of them still keeping them part of their life after getting their own body back is slim. It's a very bittersweet thought.

I loved the touch of when including the people Ropun will still have in her life, Alex included Chris, the male alter-ego Ropun used to date Dorothy. I complimented Martin on that funny little aside, but he clarified Alex was referring to Christina. I choose to believe they're referring to both.
