In this installment, Lenore continues to be weird and creepy!

Yeah, my idea for the sort of specific level of detail gone into here. Adam rewrote this page (and I think a couple of others) and one issue he had with it was trying to make Lenore's dad's situation hit a little closer to home, and I pitched having her go into great detail about it.

Think this page and the next one are the only pages in this chapter that Lenore appears in, actually. Will have more to say on that one I imagine, though I'm pretty happy with this scene. Really, in general Lenore tends to make for fun times.

Anyone else kind of wonder where Lenore's from exactly? Based on her dialogue here she seems British to me.

Ugh... Proportions in this page bug the hell out of me...

Heh... Like Martin said, I had to re-write this page with his suggestions. The original draft had some really lacking... I dunno, "umph," and it felt like nothing was happening. With his help I re-did this page and the one following and they came out a lot better. Lenore's creepy monologue and one little detail from the next page I'd been looking forward to changed that.

Yeah, good question on Lenore's origin. I know what her powers are for when they show up down the line(specifically picked something that might be useful if needed), but I'm still kinda curious what her deal is. Why does she seem spooked and frightened by everything? Do her powers give her the ability to see a nightmare realm nobody else is aware of or something? Is she just kinda... y'know, weird?

For the dialect bit.... Totally forgotten about that use of "Mummie" or I would've re-used it here. If I had to guess I'd say she has one British parent and picked up some idioms. Again, I always picked Lenore sounding like the Oracle Turret from Portal 2.

Either way, pretty happy with this page and absolutely crazy about the one that'll go up on Saturday. You'll see why then. ^^

Talk about getting overly descriptive with the gory details, Lenore can be funny in an almost morbid kind of way.

Heheh... Yeah, Lenore got promoted from background figure to supporting character because I found her weirdly funny. ^^

Heheh.... Really tempting since she's so cute, but WaR and Blues take place in separate states and it would be hard for her to play into WaR if she didn't live in the same city as her dad.

But he interacts with songbird just fine, also she would have more screen time which means more cuteness. Also songbird could have responsibility to protect her and i really I want her there.

Heh.... Yeah, more cuteness would be useful, plus the thing with Songbird WOULD be adorable and make a lot of sense. We do have something in mind with her involving Blues, but on the whole we need her in WaR for certain events down the line.
