Believe it or not, this is NOT how this chapter was originally gonna end. It was gonna be one big tease; Xandy would be going back with her mother at the end of the chapter. That's why in the lead-up to it, if you watch carefully, me and Martin never said she'd be a permanent cast member.

But I think in the process of writing this, Xandy got along with the other kids (especially Xandy) way too well for her to leave, and while we do need her in WaR, she can go back after spending some time here. Plus the Alex's arc through the whole thing is becoming more comfortable with the idea of Xandy staying in the school so would kinda defeat the point if she'd gone back. Though could've re-written Grant's speech pretty easily to help enforce that option as well.

She has, easily, gotten more screentime here than she has in her own comic by virtue of Alex not being able to see her, so it's good exposure for her. Heh. Are a couple of jokes between her and Lenore we were looking forward to doing when she left at the end of the chapter, but guess they'll be on hold. ^^

Grant finding out who Starchild is wasn't something I was planning on either. I was just gonna leave it with him glad he could work with someone who was trained by Alex; it was Martin's idea he be told. Was almost kinda surprised Martin wanted it to happen but really glad he put the idea out. ^^ Should make future crossovers... very interesting.

Yeah, this chapter has a lot of stuff that really went off the rails as it went along, but very happy with the end result. We're not quite done yet though, still a couple more pages to come.

Think this is the last time we see Heather pre-redesigns, and not actually done hers yet so... Yeah, should get on that. We do have some ideas in mind there at least. Nearly the last time pre-redesigns we see some of the leads too but they do pop up again at the very end of the chapter.

Yeah, dunno what all else I've got here. I like how hopeful Lenore looks in the third panel, she looks so happy. By her standards.
