"Not to cut you off, here, but I'm getting a message from the tiny spider that lives in my ear. She's saying the demon who murdered your son is claiming ignorance, and also that guilt is a totally foreign concept to her. I'm sure her alternate self feels somewhat differently."

In all seriousness, I do like Ana's demon self quite a bit. The philosophy of "this being lives inside you and kills anyone who crosses her." It's something that's kind of uniquely terrifying for her human self and like seeing the dynamic explored.

Heh. Come to think of it, if Ana wasn't with the group that night, could've done a decent gag with Blasko interviewing the two sides of Ana. Like one of those shows where they try to work out a couple's relationship problems.
"Coming up; one's a quiet little pushover, one's a rampaging kill-machine whose thirst for vengeance cannot be quenched. What're they doing in the same body? All that and a trip to the zoo, next!"

.... I-I was in the dentists' office for like thirty minutes waiting for an appointment and.. yeah. Fuck daytime television. Oh, right, I'm getting another tooth out, so there's that.

Okay, forgot the speech-balloons to this page and adding them at the last second, something occurs to me; Ana always takes off the glasses when she goes demon. So... does her demon form have vision problems? Does she have difficulty reading? I'm going under the assumption Ana's vision problems aren't that serious and it's more a "Small print/driving" sort of deal but still. Does she use demon magic or some kind of hyperfocus to fix the eyesight?

I get the sense Ana's eyesight is probably not too terrible anyway, and her demon form probably still has issues with it but tends to take them off to be dramatic. I try to play up Ana as being a dork and I see that still being a trait in demon form, just kind of of a different flavor.

One thing I've been trying to do throughout the chapter without being too hugely obvious about it was having Blasko not actually directly speaking to the group or referencing them in such a way as to make it 100% that he can hear them. Like very clearly can, but been wanting to portray it like he's kind of reacting to them only within the context of the show without really directly doing so. Think this page is probably the most obvious that's been but it's something I've been trying to do throughout.

You know I don't think we've ever actually had a scene of Sareena and Ana alone together? Multiple times now with Misty and Ana but don't think the inverse has yet happened. But then between when they met up with Laura in Black Princess... On Ice! and the parking lot scene in Storms Are Brewing we didn't see Sareena and Misty alone together, so don't suppose it's that weird.

Very weird, very creepy, what in the world is going to happen next.
