Ugh, trying to submit this last-minute and Chrome just decided to spaz out and keep bringing up the file select menu over and over again.

Anyway, yeah, like this page a good bit, nice little parallel conversations here, like the touch of doing that. Sort of helps show that it's really not just a one-sided issue with only Alex having to face the idea of this.

Also like the callback to the whole thing of Nicky being afraid of Grant in the first chapter. Fun thing to bring up there, though I dunno if there'll ever really be a chance to touch on it again. They get along very well now and all.

Anyway, that's about all I've got. Kind of funny the first page to feature Alex post-fourth year anniversary isn't a WaR one. Speaking of, if you're a reader of that comic and haven't seen, we posted a preview of year five - go take a look!

Yeah, I think that was Early-Installment Weirdness, since it feels sorta strange to look back on. One reason I wanted to poke fun of it here.

But yeah, the parallel conversations here were the main reason I wanted to cut back to the center and have Valerie interacting with Xandy. Think Val can sympathize with someone in Xandy's situation and wanted to talk with her on that. At the same time she's not telling her her parents are objectively evil, wanted to be clear on that. Things like her expression in the last panel kinda move that a fair deal.

I do feel a little bad Jenny's dialog and thoughts get shoved in toward the end there, but think they go a long way toward it. Ah, well, hope folks will enjoy. On Wednesday and Saturday are two pages I'd wanted to draw since the outline to this comic was written.

Uh guys Alex isn't wearing glasses in the third panel. Oh Nicky your parents treat Val differently than you.
