First off - yeah, we're going to have to skip the weekend update for this month I'm afraid. While we're keeping moving with producing pages, we are still lagging a bit behind the usual rate we do get them out so we'll need to catch up later. Apologies for the delay.

Hey, Power again! Yeah, she has a role in this chapter beyond just that one panel joke earlier. Not much of one though, it's limited to this page.

Yeah, this is just setting up something in the next chapter admittedly, and a segment of it that doesn't have Weapon in it at that. Weapon being in there's mostly just because I thought it'd be neat to see him - wanted to have someone along with Power, he's a good fit for it, and if you'll notice Alex and Glory have yet to actually see each other (outside of the chapter seven cover) which is on purpose.

That first panel ties into Black Princess's current chapter, by the way. That should answer a question or two about what's going on in it, but it's mostly just here to set up the next chapter, and to explain Alex's plans being pushed back. The plan actually was to have a scene with Alex breaking into the Monroes' house at some point in this chapter (probably bringing along Carla instead of Misty due to what all's going on in BP), but it wound up being delayed due to wanting to end the chapter early for a few reasons. As such that scene is early on in the next chapter instead.

Oh, and since this page draws attention to it, it is intentional we've barely seen McShay do anything on screen and have mostly just heard about her abilities rather than having seen them. We'll get a more direct demonstration a little bit down the line, I assure you.

I really like Power driving a convertible. Really suits her.... Even funnier since that wasn't planned. When the script called for Power and Weapon to be standing next to their car, I got hit with some weird Fridge Logic.... What the hell car cold they have driven there in? Because there's no way someone as big as Weapon could ride in one comfortably.

Relayed this complaint to Martin, since the only option that sprang to mind was "Monster Truck." I also added that a pick-up truck might work since he could ride in the flatbed and he instead suggested a convertible. Really fit perfectly and solved the problem. ^^ Good thing too, because let's face it; left to my own devices I would've put them in a Volkswagon Beetle. ^^

Rather like Power's outfit too; very "Movie star undercover" here. Weapon's I kinda just threw together. The two siblings aren't from Atlanta, so was gonna have his t-shirt be of a regional sports team from their hometown. Buuuut their location wasn't pinned down precisely yet, just the general area, so fumbled and just put Pony!Weapon's Cutie Mark on it.

Like getting to draw Weapon of course, so was really neat to do so.

Sorry about the lack of a bonus page this month.... I'ma get to drawing now.

So that's what you meant when you said the tint on one of them probably gives you a good idea, it's Alex talking in the purple dialogue box in panel four on page 15 of BP's currant chapter, this is getting really weird.

Heh, right. They don't really intersect after this but I did think about doing a little more in WaR to show what's going on in BP; decided not to mostly just because it was kind of out of place and unneeded.
