I was totally dreading drawing the food for this one, but came out okay. Much less of a hassle than that one scene in Blues where the kids are eating dinner. I think I've become slightly more aware of what food looks like.

Weird my typing about this subject while getting over a cold; the only major symptom still lingering on me is that I have no appetite. Weird.

But yeah, not much to say about this one. Favorite part is Alex laughing at Laura's barbarian act in the last panel. Wasn't in the script; it just happened and it's adorable. ^^

This is the only page in the filler Cathy appears in, but it is a mark in how she's kind of increasing in screentime fairly steadily after this point. She's in the next couple of chapters at least, though next one's really just a cameo to lay some groundwork for things, and has a pretty good shot of appearing in a bigger capacity in the one after those.

Either way, pretty happy with this whole little sequence. Basically just an excuse to flex the characters' muscles a bit and give Alex, Laura, and Lillian some more time to play off of each other but with Lillian being loosened up and having some fun herself. Don't be expecting much of plot relevance given that, though we will at least touch back on one lingering note from the previous chapter. Albeit one more comedic than anything.

A big part of the point of this filler is to lighten the mood and have a little fun before the next couple of chapters, which will be fairly heavy with a lot of high-emotion. It'll be kind of a rocky road for awhile, so might as well get in some lighthearted fun while we can first.

Do really like the touch throughout this filler - isn't just in this page - of Alex looking all amused at Laura's antics. Pretty much all Adam there but it fits very well.

Oh, and that bit about Candice and Maria being in town is indeed a set-up for the next couple of chapters. Was kind of supposed to come up in the previous chapter but there wasn't really a natural place to mention it.

Heh. More silliness to come you'll hopefully also like.
