Wow, do we have a backlog on Blues built up - this is the second page of the chapter, but last night we got done the third page of the next one. I'm still kind of confused on how it's so much further ahead than WaR and BP are. Still, if nothing else that means everyone can probably expect to not have any holes in the schedule for a long time coming.

That e-mail caused us kind of a surprising amount of a headache, but not in its own right. Essentially, I wrote a reply to it before it itself was actually written, but then apparently neither of us saved it or something and it wound up lost, so I had to rewrite it which I put off doing until the page it's on was basically finished. We'll see that reply later on in the chapter.

But yeah, this starting point is pretty similar to Blue Bloodlines really, even as far as some of the extras we're seeing. We'll be going off in a different direction with it very soon, though.

Oh, and if you don't know how it is that Grant's e-mailing, try clicking on that Wright as Rayne link up above us. And maybe that The Black Princess one while you're at it. Which are the same link if you're reading this on DeviantArt.

My brain's really scattered from just getting the Wi-Fi back up, but lemme see about comments. ^^

Heheh... Yeah, say goodbye to Jenny and Nicky, you won't be seeing them for a while. They're not taking part in this chapter very much. Kinda half-knew it going in, they just didn't have as much in mind for what was happening in this chapter. To compensate, Jake shows up after spending most of the last two chapters MIA.

But yeah, like I said, this chapter is kinda directly picking up from where the last one left off, chronicling the next day. Hence why everybody's tired, the extras are pretty upset, and their parents are calling to make sure they're okay. ^^

Jenny playing violin was something planned for the characters since before the start of the script, so sorta embarrassed I didn't get to actually show it 'til now. There's a trait of Grant's I've been neglecting to show that turns up later too.

I'd say Martin's due to show Alex e-mailing Grant in WaR soon, but it'll be a few weeks before we see Alex reply to that e-mail, so that could make the timing really awkward.

Back in Blue Bloodlines Jenny did say she played violin and I wonder who got stuck listening to Stickset complain.

Grant takes his shoes off when using the computer? That's a weird quirk...

Heh. What happened was, I drew Grant barefoot in the first panel and then with shoes on later in the page, so to cover that obvious continuity gap, Martin added the shows by his feet in the first panel.
