Not sure what all I have to say on this one. Lot in the way of new colors on this page and all, given the new locations and extras for this bit. Actually, I kind of wonder if we'll see the fire station again at some point. Well, besides the later page in this sequence we briefly see it again, anyway.

I do like that last panel a good bit especially. It seems to do a good job of depicting their relationship. Though it does present something that might soon be sort of weird when it comes to Blues if you read all three of our comics - next week's WaR and BP pages are the last time the dog muzzle sort of side view is on display in those comics, as we've switched to a new style, but Blues is far enough ahead that it'll be awhile before the pages being posted for it reach that point.

Anyway, I don't have too much else to say here, so be sure to swing by on Wednesday! We haven't entirely decided if it's going to be the next page or something for Christmas, but either way, we're hoping whatever we go with everyone enjoys it.

Do wanna put something together for Christmas, just not sure what. ^^

Either way, very happy with the page, and the idea of Heather being homeschooled at a fire house. For reason see that whole scenario working out like a Cheers-style sitcom with the various people at the Firehouse having funny misadventures. Heh.... Phrasing it like that makes it seem like we'll probably see the firehouse again, but probably not. Her parents definitely, I have a few good gags planned with her dad, but Firehouse might only come up if we show her homelife briefly.

In the flashback, you'll probably notice she's wearing an oversized fireman's coat and boots. Since the containment suit was given to her by the school, I had to figure what she probably wore before that. My original idea was that she'd just have really burnt-up, scorched clothes that she was constantly replacing, but think the coat would be a lot cuter.

You could probably argue about if it's legal for a school to forbid Heather entry due to being a fire-hazard, but I figure her parents could've sued but didn't want the hassle.

The dog-muzzle thing will still be up a while, but eventually you'll see we've changed how we do side-profile. If you go to the Wright As Rayne/Black Princess Deviantart page, you'll see it in the two most recent Friday Fillers.

Heather certainly seems to have lucked out when it comes to having kind, caring and understanding parents, but Val, Grant ,Guy and I imagine a lot of other kids haven't been as lucky.
