Yeah, reason for the filler was Laura wearing that outfit. .... Well, one reason, but the other won't be apparent until waaaay later.

I'm honestly rather annoyed with that penultimate panel; Martin said in the script to get a good look at Laura's room, and told me to make it really cluttered and messy. I was really down for that idea, but right before I drew that panel I had to re-draw the layout of where the characters were and wound up making them too big; therefore less space for the background. I really love the idea of seeing Ropun's room and that super-cluttered idea to it. You can kinda tell I regretted it since I tried to cram as much as I could in that space; especially love the picture of her mom on the wall.

I love how Paxton wearing the clown suit is something nobody comments on. They're having a totally normal conversation with him still in it.

Given how crazy in-character Ropun tends to be, is a bit surprising she's so willing to break character when asked. Then again, if she didn't she'd be a huge asshole.

Kind of two notable reasons for using this outfit in this sequence - one that I wanted something from an in-universe show, and two I wanted something that wouldn't be too distracting for Laura to be wearing while out of character in the next few pages. Speaking of I think this is actually the first time we've seen her in an outfit with no green on it at all - I kind of just couldn't really think of a way to work it in in this particular case. She does still have her green eyes though, and wouldn't surprise me if under that she has on green underwear. Plus of course her bedroom has green walls and a green blanket.

I like getting to see her mom here, nice little thing. We'll definitely see more of her mom down the line but for now do like this quick glance at her.

Kind of hard to comment on this one really since both of the next couple have something more notable within them in following up on this one. Both have major shake-ups for the comic but in rather different ways, so be sure to swing by for those.

Also would like to point out Laura also dropped character when asked to earlier while in the Inkling costume, though to be fair at least in that case she kind of had to to be coherent while here she really was robotic manner of speaking or not.
