Gaaaah, so not in a commenting mood right now... Lemme see....

Yeah, a lot of this chapter takes place in the principal's office now that I think about it. Guess it's a good thing I didn't make the background behind him too complicated since it gets a lot of use. ^^ Though no excuse for why Christina and Alex talking got no background.

That's something else that comes up in this chapter alot- characters talking while superimposed against this background, flashback image.

Pretty sure this is the first time we've seen Cathy since chapter one, isn't it? Isn't that big of a player in things, obviously. ^^

Is this the first time it's come up that Dorothy is mixed-race? Believe so, don't really see where it would have before besides the information page halfway through the first chapter and I just checked to see if it was mentioned there, which it wasn't.

So, yeah, Dorothy's dad is half-black, which is why Dorothy generally has darker skin than most of the cast - should probably be moreso, we'll see that changed a bit down the line I imagine. We will see her dad at some point, for those wondering, but he's not too relevant to things right now. Instead, let's talk about the page itself, hm?

Alex's point is kind of ruined by my opting to make the group Christina gathered of varying ethnicities, and I have no idea what she's supposed to be with how her skin is - probably some sort of Latino or middle-eastern - but I'm not really intending for Alex's point to be anything more than snark anyway.

The imposed pictures thing does happen a lot in this chapter, as Adam said. Really probably kind of overdid it on it, but it is a good way to denote that something is a flashback.

As for Cathy, yeah, pretty sure this is the first she's appeared since the first chapter, though she had offscreen dialogue in the fourth.

Also, might I go ahead and extend an early Merry Christmas to all of our readers? Hope everyone has a good one.

When are we going to learn were the Ropun nickname came from?

Definitely chapter ten, though couldn't hurt to say that on the DA mirror one of our joke pages mentions it - it was Sarabeth's high school nickname and Alex picked it entirely to screw with her when they're together.
