Yeah, not sure what to say on this one; good to see Alex and Sareena exchanging face-time, but dialog-heavy stuff is always fun to do. ^^

I do really like the way Alex handles Sareena. He still hasn't forgotten it's HER fault he's like this, and I like the idea that he treats her in a "Ugh, this bitch" manner. Likewise, love the idea of Laura being annoyed with Sareena pulling her into adventures without asking her consent and Alex standing up for her. A nice touch toward Alex and Laura's relationship that he's willing to look out for her like that. ^^

Sareena looking cute and guilty like that was fun too. I kinda like the idea of playing her up as almost a spoiled princess, but half-wonder if I took it too far. Her sitting on the bed makes her look like a little girl being scolded and that really wasn't the intention in drawing it.

As for why she freaked out seeing Dorothy's Mom... Well, we'll get to that. ^^

One thing I've rather liked about the past couple of chapters is showing certain situations at a point then later backing up showing how exactly they came to happen. Naturally coming up on another one of those out of this, to back when we saw Sareena and Misty talking in the rain in the last chapter.

Another location turning back up for the first time in a long time, Sarabeth's bedroom! Don't think we've seen it since waaaay back in chapter seven. Of course don't really get a very good look at it here, and it's not even drawn attention to in the dialogue really what room it is, but hey, it's something. A more significant returning locale's coming up a little later in this story along with a character we haven't seen in awhile.

Of course we also get a little more insight into what exactly the next chapter's going to be about. There's a bit more to it than that and a few other plots that will be running besides that, but that's what the mains' leg of the plot will be. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, chapter sixteen is still a good ways off. For the record the reveal of the Halloween costumes we saw silhouetted on the anniversary picture will be a little bit late but only by a few weeks, so not any huge deal on that.

Turning it back around to the current subject at hand, we also see Cathy again. Decent appearance streak going for her at the moment, even if she still largely isn't doing too terribly much. We'll touch in on things involving her a bit more later on though.

Oh, right, since I finished scripting the chapter recently (and am a decent bit into the next one actually), I can weigh in further on that note from awhile back about how the Sareena story would probably be the longest one of the chapter - it and the story after it are tied for that. Appropriate given who's spotlighted in that one, but that's a subject for a couple weeks from now.

Come to think of I should actually try and go through figuring out who actually gets the most screentime in this chapter across the various stories. I have a few guesses as to who it could be.

I can guess why seeing Cathy upset Sareena so much, looking forward to the next page.

Yeah, probably not too hard to get an idea of that one. Hopefully you'll enjoy what's coming.
