This chapter was really hard for me to write. I've been really nervous through the whole thing. Hell, the fight scene basically put the whole scripting process to a grinding halt. Since I was already nervous and this particular comic doesn't have any Blues characters anyway, asked Martin if he could handle the script for this one. And here it is. ^^

I did give him an outline though, explaining what goes on in every panel, just felt rough handling the characters myself without having any of my own to bounce off them. Other scripts so far have been handled by me, and hopefully you'll enjoy 'em. ^^

Martin did give me some points on drawing though; wanted to cultivate a sorta Goth look for Melissa. He mostly did that himself in coloring here, but made sure in later pages she has a more Goth-ish outfit. Also when drawing Xandy sleeping I got to ask what kind of stuffed animal she was likely to have. He answered "Toucan."

Persephone's Children, you'll recall, were mentioned way back in Darker Blue. Meant to discuss them between then and now but fell by the wayside, I guess.

Here are Martin's lovely comments. ^^

Yeah, my Internet is still acting up. They're supposed to come fix it tomorrow.

Anyway, woo, I wrote this one! First full Blues story script I've written (done bits within pages before), probably not the last. I wound up putting this one off for a bit myself, mostly due to being unsure how to approach it. Once Adam outlined what he wanted done with it it was a pretty quick write.

Funny this, this actually forced a change in the WaR chapter. My initial plan was to have Alex come to Stonewall by way of getting Sarabeth to fly him there under a guise of shipping something, but Adam thought the driving alone thing would be a bit more poignant, plus of course it allowed for the radio bit. It fits more with Alex's goal of wanting to prove to himself he can get out to see Xandy there if he must too, since he's getting there under his own power.

If you're confused as to why we keep calling this teenage girl a man and why we're saying she's a little girl's dad, you should read Wright as Rayne! Or at least look up the premise, that'd explain it.

Oh Melissa Alex is a lot closer than you think. Is Alex driving his own car? and is Jenny to be hugging Xandy or someone else?

.... I think it's Dorothy's car. Wait, no, it's Purple, Alex's. Yeah. ^^ But for the hug... You'll have to see.

I can feel that this is going to be very heart breaking for Alex. He is meeting is own daughter, but really can't say much about it.
