Heh. Yeah, this page is one of our favorites of the chapter (NOT the chapter's MVP, you'll see why very soon), just because of how disarming it was. The pair have been awkward-as-fuck for their entire date until Ana had a mini-breakdown over dinner and Paxton comforted her. Then... Well, it's not a good-night kiss or anything, but suddenly the pair are having a sweet, adorable moment between each other. Like... I was totally caught off-guard by how genuine and cute they were together here.

It doesn't feel out of play either; it feels like this is naturally where the pair would go after their thing at dinner. Just... Awwww. ^^ You can tell a page is gonna be great when I'm really blown away by the script and this one really surprised me.

Especially since I spent the entire chapter wondering if the demon was going to show up. I think that was the plan at one point and it just never happened, but this was worth it. For the record, I like to see that Paxton knew about the demon bit and seemingly understood that Ana had been stuck on a date she didn't agree to. Like, he still made her go through with it, but never acted like he expected anything out of it. He's an asshole but he's not a creep.

Yeah, this page kind of just came together through what felt right as I was writing it. A couple other ideas were either the demon actually showing up or Ana just putting on like she had to see Paxton off, but this felt more appropriate and I really like how it came out.

I figure the two probably had a conversation about the demon aspect of all of this offscreen, given had been mentioned before they hadn't actually worked out a time or anything - likely they probably slipped away and talked about it at some point during the Halloween party. I feel like Ana figured she should go along with it since it was still technically her saying yes, plus she might be worried that the demon wouldn't take her cancelling it well.

So yeah, this ends this leg of the plot, and is the last we see of these two for a bit because they're not in the next chapter. I do hope everyone enjoys this one and keeps reading - we've got just a handful of pages left and we'll be cutting back to Alex and Laura for them.
