Leif & Thorn prompts for #OTPober: Leif/Thorn/Kale, wedding comfy sweaters.

Related: the character profiles list has been updated! Featuring important new arrivals like Atarangi’s headmates, Hermosa, and the color-coded vampire servants, especially Valrún.

And speaking of…readers, how do you feel about the cast page? Do you like the “characters are placed in loose groups with their co-workers/families/friends” organization?

Ducks in this world have fangs and claws, as established way back in this Tumblr Q&A. For whatever reason, this doesn’t make rubber duck debugging any less effective.

The teacher here is Dave, a backer cameo from the BICP Master’s Edition Kickstarter.

…yes, I put cameos in those rewards. Even though there’s, well, not a whole lot of opportunities to put new faces in BICP. Luckily, there’s enough audience crossover that most people reported they’d be fine with a Leif & Thorn cameo too — so keep an eye out for the rest.
