There's so much of these last dozen or so pages where we had to condense stuff down and trim stuff to keep the chapter from running too long since we were so, so ready for it to be over. There was a lot of thinking of "Stay or go" for some things. I wanted Jake's speech about how losing is what makes you who you really are to be a big thing that went on through the entire page instead of just a couple of panels.

The thing is... Nng... I reallllly wanted to do that gag of Lenore's brain going silly whenever she used her power too much. ^^ I dunno when I'll get another chance to make that joke so absolutely had to put it here. Yeah, been wanting to do this joke for a while.

I was really curious if Lore's "... Good for him" bit was too bitter, especially since she just got a speech about not having Marvelous Man, but don't think it's unreasonable for her to be a little angry given what just happened to the group.

But yeah, one thing I dislike about Jake's revised speech is how I was gonna preceed it with him saying there's no one yardstick or attribute to measure a person by; they're more complex. Who you are is a mixture of all the things everyone has mentioned thus far. Marvelous man believes who you are is defined by action, Insomniac by thought, Su by fear, and Jake by failure.

OH! Crap, was gonna give Aurora a little mini-speech about a person being defined by how they perceived beauty which would've been juxtaposed with Insomniac reading her mind and finding out she actually had criminally low self-esteem and contemplated suicide and.... Yeah, that wasn't cut for time so much as I forgot about it. The last... dozen or so pages in this chapter were all written in like a big binge one night.

But yeah, the kids have NOT had the best night.... Sort of a pity, isn't it?

Yeah, this chapter wound up with some corners cut in it for time, pretty much because Adam didn't want to have the longest chapter to date two chapters in a row. Granted still significantly shorter than WaR's Halloween chapter came out to be so... Something.

This one was a little time-consuming to do but nothing too bad, helped by how almost everything in it was also in the last page. Still, heavy head count, the last two have had probably the biggest either comic's had in a good while. One of several reasons why we're planning to take a bit of a break when the chapter wraps up, though we'll get more into that when it's time for it.

Adam was actually unsure on whether to include the Lenore gag or not, wondered if it might distract from the mood of the page too much. Personally think it worked out fine, particularly since it's pretty much swept aside after the first half of the page. Plus really needed a lighter moment after how heavy the past few have been.

Eh. They JUST had the crap kicked out of them. Think it's okay for Lore to be a bit bitter over that.

I want to hug Lenore. She's great in this.

But now she's involved. Dun dun DUUUUN. I wonder how this is going to play into the future of the gang.

Heh... Nah, it's fine. ^^ Lenore has known about the kids being heroes since the Insomniac chapter. The comic never drew a lot of attention to it, but she did thank them for it afterward and hang out when training for it.

Don't worry though, they'll pay her with shares of Halloween candy.^^
