Yeah, I know that this chapter has been kind of slow actually getting to, like, the Halloween special. Had some things to address first and like I said before, this is most likely going to be the longest chapter to date. We'll be touching in on it very soon, don't worry.

That said, hey, had to get Misty's mark in there somewhere and here it is! It won't be too horribly long before we learn what exactly the deal with those is, don't worry. Not going to be that belabored a point.

Speaking of, is good getting to go a little more into the demon thing here, and actually give that form a proper name. I pretty much just came up with the Midnight Maiden name off the top of my head working on the page, with some of the ideas I had been kicking around for it but wasn't really a fan of being ones Sareena and Misty are throwing out. And yeah, Ana's complaint was kind of part of my hesitation with those names. Though not the only one, they also didn't really sound too descriptive or fit the theme enough in my view. Plus it works with how Sareena and Misty use their titles within the Black Family, while Ana of course doesn't have one.

I'll say now that Paxton is in a Halloween costume. Anyone want to take any guesses what it is?

Ughhh... Tooth's coming out tomorrow. Really not looking forward to it.

But yeah, was fun doing this. ^^ Got to see some of Ana's personality as she winces and squirms while people talk around her. The idea is that she's sort of easy to push around, which is probably the main reason she hangs out with Sareena and Misty to begin with, so trying to play that up a little. Also contrasts nicely with her demon self's take-charge personality.

Speaking of, I think some of this conversation was born from me badgering Martin about details of the demon thing. Ana's other half isn't a demon in a religious context, like a fallen angel or tempter of man or anything, it's just a sort of monster-side. And "monster" just sounds sort of silly. And like Martin said, it's really nice to have a name for that other than just "Ana's demon side". Was really awkward for me and Martin whenever we had to discuss it given that.

Funnily enough I totally forgot me and Martin had already designed Misty's symbol. I got the basics right in that it was an eye, though Martin refined it closer to the design in post.
