Yeah, we were kind of supposed to be seeing more of the search going on and Marina annoying them with it, but like I mentioned, the chapter was running long and I kind of wanted to get to the point. Particularly given the plan for awhile was for Ella to be the one who ultimately found the place - both to continue the tendency established in Blues for CANDLE having a certain trend of getting things done despite how clueless they are and since she's probably the only party involved here that actually would honor the deal to call in the others right away.

Am rather happy with how this page came out on the whole, Miss Brooks is always fun and I like getting to have Marina as this weird wildcard who's barely paying attention to what's going on around her. As said her presence in the chapter was a fairly last-minute decision but I have been enjoying the stuff with her, even if it's not really been a huge amount of it.

Heheh... Yeah, not much to this one, mostly just a change to see Marina acting more obnoxious. The main appeal to me was seeing Miss Brooks again. her design got spruced up a bit, with the eyelashes and slightly nicer-looking haircut. You'll notice the weird little Egyptian-style brooch, which is a reference to how the character was originally based off Ozymandias's secretary in Watchmen. Who, ironically, was killed while in the middle of complaining about her boss's obsession with Egyptian decor. I guess it's grown on her since walking off her death.

Also Miss Brooks has a picture of Becky on her desk. I kinda like the idea that Miss Brooks works as a part-time nanny for Becky, and I try to work in little hints to that every time I can (last time we saw her she was actually changing her). Given we briefly saw her in the first chapter struggling to feed her, imagine she hated the idea at first and it's since grown on her.

Man, a lot about Miss Brooks.... Weird. Really like her. ^^
