Violet (narrating): Cymbeline wasn’t an actor. She didn’t have money stashed away from her past life. Her old job wasn’t the kind of thing you can pick up from scratch after a couple of decades. Plus, at that point she needed to sleep about fourteen hours a day.

She spent a couple years just catching up on history, advances in science, magic . . . literature.

Cymbeline: Did you finish the last book yet?

Violet: It was so good. I don’t even want to look up fic for it, that’s how good it was. I’m gonna be a knight like that one day.

Cymbeline: Maybe I should write a book. I looked up some of the people I used to know . . . there’s definitely a market for a tell-all.

Violet: Ooh. Who did you know and when did you know them?

Cymbeline: I shouldn’t answer that until I’ve talked to my agent.

Is it unsettling for anyone else that Cymbelline is pretty much Cybelle?

Friendly reminder that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have been recurring characters in EVERY ONE of her comics, I think. Shard is right, once Erin finds a character design she loves, she sticks with it.

And yeah, it’s fascinating that both characters are adorable centuries-old little girls.
