God, been a crummy day... Nnng...

But yeah, we don't really see Grant hear about Alex's identity, just his reaction after it's all been explained. Thought that would be a good deal funnier. Because of the time limit on Alex's voice-thing, he can't really press on it, though he does send the e-mail seen in the first panel of this Wright As Rayne page-

Other than that, not much to say, mostly because my brain's fairly empty right now. I liked getting to write the fairwell between Alex and Xandy, and the amicable-exes relationship Alex has with Melissa.

Can't remember if the Alex offering to pay Melissa money to see Xandy whenever was Martin's idea or mine. Wanna say mine but could go either way. Eh. Might just be because I wanna do another parent-visiting chapter sometime and be a good chance to see her again.

Heh. Final joke? After all this stuff about Xandy entering, the next chapter barely takes place in the center at all (possibly won't feature the center period; I'm not done with it yet), so we don't see her. We'll get more into what the next chapter'll be about on Wednesday. That's the last page of this one, and next picks up just after it.

I've always pictured it as something where Alex probably does pay for anything Xandy and Melissa need but doesn't formally do child support, pretty much just being supplemental income when they need it. Besides that he probably spoils Xandy rotten, likely gets her pretty much anything she wants. I picture there being this other thing Melissa probably gets him to do for her a good bit but that'll come up later.

This marks the last sighting of Alex in the chapter, but probably not the end of his role in things period. We've already got a few further ideas floating around for crossovers between each combination of the comics, so we'll see how that goes.

Oh, if you only read Blues you're confused about how Alex can talk in his own voice, it's something he got the ability to do within WaR itself a long while back. Look at that patch on his neck, that's the reason he can do it, but as Adam said there is a time limit on it.

I wanted to see how Alex explained all this, Xandy may be spoiled but it sure doesn't look like she's let go to her head.

Heh, true, she stays very sweet regardless.

Poor Grant, I would need to lie down after finding out I spent the entire day with my hero and didn't get an autograph.

Heheh... True, that's probably the bigger issue than Alex being a girl. ^^
