Me on panel 5: what idiot thought it was a great idea to make me draw so many Dómari-damned zigzags??

Leif: Ohh! I get it!
I shouldn’t keep you up much longer . . . it’s getting late.
Thorn: It is? We get two hours of light a day, and you can tell?

Thorn: I would prefer that you answer my question first.
