Lenore's bit wasn't a joke. I really did have a nightmare and wake up to realize I had no filler.

Yeah, so this was kicked off on the fly and I have to get dress in two minutes now because I delayed setting this up so I could take a shower. Comment when I get home.

The funny thing with Guin is that conceptually for me she was actually pretty different from how Adam decided to implement her - my idea was more that her body was very weak and limited in what it could do so she slept all the time and operated as a ghost. Back when she first showed up in ghost form that's kind of the way I wrote it, but I think the personality split way works better.

But yeah, very last minute idea on this one. Basically just didn't want to sink the time into doing the blog post right now since it'd take a lot of set-up, particularly since we're going a little more flashy with it this time. That'll most likely be next up.

If anyone's curious, in my nightmare I went to work but was for some reason really, really tired and unable to think straight, so I just clocked in and then just wandered out of the building again like I was half-drunk in some bizarre stupor. Then after stumbling around the neighborhood around the theater I came back 24 hours later knowing I was going to be yelled at. Nobody ever did it, but there was this looming feeling in the air that the second foot about to drop... Then I somehow stumbled back out of the building into the parking lot and my car had had one of its tires boosted off it so I couldn't get back home. Yeah, a lot of my nightmares involve unemployment.

Yeah, I think I'm realllllly running out of students for these things. I genuinely wasn't going to do a Student Spotlight on the basis that I wanted to do some different stuff for this filler. Buuut, hell, we're doing the Blueblog for the next slow-buildup storyline so might as well do this too. ^^

I didn't have Xandy and Lenore go into it, but when I first drew Louis (Waaaaay back in Chapter 1) I was trying to get his hair to look more like Pikachu's ears. Wanted to make a Pikachu-Expy among the kids and wound up with this lunatic. Weird, but happy accidents, I guess. ^^

If I had to guess...it's 'cause being a meat bag is depressing and tiresome while being a ghost is awesome and fun and care free! Ask Casper! He's a ghost and he's super friendly!

...yes, I know being a ghost has its depressing aspects too but being able to project your state of conscsiousness outside of your body into an incorporeal form without the restrictions of your physical one sounds pretty sweet.

And if you run out of students to spot light...spotlight family members! While we normally get all we really need when they show up in story, getting a bit more detail might be a nice way to help pad these out when you finally run out of actual students.

After all perhaps Guin's love of being an adorable little spook might be explainable as her parents encouraging it. Or it might be something depressing like a defense mechanism for who knows what, leaving all her 'troubles' behind with that meat suit she calls a body.

But yeah, family members could be fun filler.

Huh... Yeah, spotlighting family members could go really well. I might have to start doing that. Be a good chance to draw a few more of them. Lori especially I love to doodle around with. I mean, she's even appearing in the next chapter....

Interesting theories on Guin.... Really not sure which one is true but all could be good. I think that parent-encouragement idea especially seems like it'd be fun. ^^

And now Wolfintina will stop asking. XD

In all seriousness, I think your choice of characters is interesting. Guin in particular is someone I’ve wanted to look into for a while; maybe because of her tsundere personality between forms. Anyway, hope the nightmare wasn’t too bad.

HA! Yeah, she IS a tsundere! That's awesome! Never quite thought of it like that. ^^

I thought devil-kids name was Luc not Louis, and I can still think of a few extras who haven't been in the spotlight yet.

Wait, was it? Crud, the font I use for my list of the students is a bit small and hard to read. That's possible. But yeah, there are more extras, but running out of ones I really wanted to talk about.... I might wind up going with that family idea.
