Happy New Year!

Heh. Not sure how much I have to say on this one, though if nothing else, the first page is looking better than when we last saw it.

Guess the specific time that panel's happening is after she set down the pipe. Anyway, yeah, we'll probably touch on everyone's lives pre-Blue at some point, though it's not really the focus of this chapter or anything. Outside of Heather anyway.

Not a whole lot else to say, but hope everyone enjoys and we'll see you on Saturday!

"One in ten thousand" were the odds I finally settled on for Blue-Blood distribution. That's in the population that's twelve and under of course, since the gene started appearing around that time. I once got the national census for that age group in the US and did the math for how much that would come out as, but forgotten it sense. I was really curious exactly how scarce and rare the Blue Gene was and if anything, 0.0001% is too generous a number. Was very tempted to make it one in a million.

And like I said, a lot of characters in this chapter get speeches about why they're doing this. Since Lore was the one who more or less originated the idea, we haven't gotten much out of her for it, so liked getting to handle this. There's a lot to Lore's past we haven't gotten into, especially where it comes to helping people in need. Can't say when it'll turn up. ^^

Also we get to see Lori again, that's always fun. ^^ Try to have her pop up when she can, but not to the point where it wouldn't make any sense. It's a weird balance to hit; can't let characters show up so rarely it looks like you forgot about them, but can't have them parade in just whenever.

Heh... Also, Grant's line in the first panel is a semi-Man of Steel reference. Just realized partway into typing it that Clark gave his dad a similar argument in the film so figured I'd phrase it the same way. Makes sense given he's a Superman fan.

Speaking of Grant, he gets a speech of his own on Saturday, so swing by. ^^

There, I cut it down to one in a hundred thousand. That's 3,000 in the whole country.

This just goes to show the kids have the hearts of true heroes, and they're beating the odds to do their best to try and make the world a better place.
