I told you this was full of callbacks. First person to dig up all the strips being referenced gets a No-Prize.
Nigella (pronoun: he, seeking: m/f/x): Nigella Badiane, potion shop manager. Hey, did I ever sell something to you . . . ?
Juniper: Yes. You also thought a fourteen-year-old was my kid.
Florian (he, m/x): Florian Amande, magitech support! You look familiar. Did I date a friend of yours?
Juniper: Sort of . . . and I thought you were too young for him, too.
Lobbyist (she, f/x): Marula Boatman, political lobbyist.
Juniper: I’ve seen you on the news. Aren’t you married?
Lobbyist: Well, yes, but it’s an open —
Juniper: Still not what I’m looking for.
Deliveryman (he, m/f/x): . . .
Not sure about the deliveryman specifically tho. Tags + Minor characters mean it’s narrowed down a lot to begin with, though :p

And of course my submission to the “contest” gets put in moderation XD Four links will do that to you!
Commiserations, friend. I didn’t include links as I knew that’d happen.
I thought links to *this site* were fine, maybe it worked last time I linked it? Alas
Nigella: I Got Eight Problems page 19/27 (also had a date with Rowan)
Florian: Night Out page 1 through page 14. Thrown out by Rowan.
Marula: Leaves That Are Green page 12. Advocate for the Pie Council.
Deliveryman: I got Eight Problems page 1. Comes back for The Show Must Grown On: Overture. Color me Deeply surprised if he’s not arrested next page.
Bonus round: The Marula that is not Marula Boatman: Marula Sheever, former associate of Thorn’s Team. Was not present for the Remembrance in Watching Over Me page 6. Has not been in a strip, but IS featured in a few tumblrposts. She draws a Heart-Bonesaw. Likes cutting up people, But not, like, in an evil way?
Earlier link-ful comments were hidden in the moderation queue, so everybody gets a prize =D
Even better than I was expecting!
What’s wrong with the deliveryman?
Being a known criminal bagman usually doesn’t make for a good partner for most people.
Yeah, I read the strip with him again after posting this and realized he’s a shady person, I totally forgot he was only pretending to be a deliveryman, bringing illegal potions.
Does a one night stand count as a date?
It’s a date that ended very well…and then the after-date ended very badly
LOL at this strip and how, er, “lucky” Juniper is. I won’t say that KIND of luck. 😉
