Sequences with children are hard to write because they know so much less than everyone else. They make all kinds of mistakes, and that really grates.

By the way, it's like 1 PM. There really are no excuses why everyone has just woken up.

Hey I myself was still in bed an hour ago. I understand the plight of sleeping in. That's right, its a plight! I'd kill to sleep normal hours again.

And is that Mary there? The eyebrows are throwing me off.

Her eyebrows look different? How odd.
JasperWB 25th Apr 2012, 9:44 PM edit delete reply
Well to me at least. Thicker maybe? It does add a cute factor though.
cattservant 25th Apr 2012, 9:50 PM edit delete reply
What eyebrows?

(And, any sleep is good sleep!)
JasperWB 25th Apr 2012, 10:04 PM edit delete reply
What...but.. Ok now y'all are just trying to shatter my psyche.

I do think they look different but they make sense to me though, considering her disheveled appearance. Eyebrows can get ruffled up too.

Look at today's page again...

But yes, the depth of her feelings must affect her emoto-displays and she is venturing out into new territory now!

...You know what, it doesn't matter. I'm starting to feel stupid here. I'll just wait till tomorrow.
cattservant 25th Apr 2012, 10:36 PM edit delete reply
No, you were right! I was fixated on Gretel. (And that's why adequate sleep is so important...)

Things never go straightforward for me. I feel like I'm Larry David, I mean look how long this conversation is over me just wanting to know if that was Mary or not lol

What a sweet little mono-winged angel!
As innocent as a boulder rolling down a mountain side...

I think that today's page has a strong relationship to this page.

"I'm just a prop" can I infer a small 4th wall trespasement here?

Rufus in more self-aware than he generally gets credit for.

No fourth wall breakage.

It could work. Have him trail off mid sentence and have his face get all serious as he gazes into the "camera" and slowly, panel by panel, zoom in on him and his now dilated pupils.

Like one of those avant-garde films from early in the Twentieth Century?
cattservant 25th Apr 2012, 11:58 PM edit delete reply
Zoot alors! It's Cat-xistential!
JasperWB 26th Apr 2012, 12:55 AM edit delete reply
Bravo. Just like that cat is misunderstood, perhaps the same be for Rufus. A genius in a humble shell! I always knew your characters were deep but never to what degree...
cattservant 26th Apr 2012, 12:59 AM edit delete reply
And much too polite to call it to anyone's attention... (Rufus, that is.)

I sense a threesome coming on.

You sense... wrongly!
Running Joke 26th Apr 2012, 6:55 AM edit delete reply
All I sense is a bad idea brewing. And probably not the sort of bad idea you look back on, consequences et all, and still call 'worth it'.

Praying for a shitstorm.

So things are about to take a turn. By now we know enough about everyone's nuances to make a prediction somewhat chancy. One important question; is Mary home alone at this point?

And did the Octopuses bring Gisele back?
JasperWB 26th Apr 2012, 9:13 PM edit delete reply
Heh. I was wondering that myself. I think Gretel would either be scarred for life or in heaven to suddenly see Jim appear behind Mary wearing nothing but a robe himself that was wide open showcasing his svelt body and fully erect member...

Yeah I said all that. If I'm going to paint a picture there is no point in half-assing it!

...of Parliament?
JasperWB 26th Apr 2012, 9:33 PM edit delete reply
Yeah. Parliament is in session with the Prime Minister in attendance.

Hear! Hear!

Mary. Is. Glowing.

I wonder if Jim is there too.
