Re: yesterday’s strip — it is so satisfying, as a writer, to lay down a bunch of clues and then watch readers work as a group to put them together.
Here’s one more detail to fill out Cedar’s backstory that I hadn’t covered yet…
Jax: Hey, Cedar, I think glasses look fine on you. Not as great as on me, though. You must have some good associations with them.
Cedar: Uh . . . well, I remember one time with one of the older actors on the show . . . He was a teenager already, and he was basically like a brother to me.
I guess his boyfriend needed glasses? I overheard them talking about it at a cast party. He said he thought they made any face cuter.
Jax: And this guy was “like a brother,” huh.
Cedar: Well, yeah . . . He played my brother on the show. What else would he be like?
