New on Patreon: Behind-the-scenes bonuses from Leif & Thorn, circa 2017-2018! This one isn’t patron-exclusive, so even if you’re not a backer right now, come check it out.
(Don’t mind the content warning — this post is worksafe.)
Kale: I don’t know that it was Northwind, okay? But my therapist pointed out what a convenient coincidence it was . . . and now I can’t unsee it.
The night after my powers were discovered, I got mugged. For the first time. Out of nowhere. By a fellow magical girl.
Kudzu (flashback): You don’t want to hurt me . . . you want to go home and rethink your life choices . . .
Kale: I drove them off, healed my own injuries, got a job offer right afterward, and it never happened again.
Thorn: And you didn’t suspect that it might have been Northwind, even after they started ordering you to kill people?
Kale: . . . Let me finish the story and come back to that, okay?
