I really did make this strip months after the first version of the hallway scene…which led to some awkward moments of “wait, how did I do that effect, again??”
Thorn (thinking): –okay, I think I’m making this weird.
Thorn: Who are you?
WiB: Unmemorable agent from the opera. Now in a bonus time loop. Here to watch Kale so you don’t have to.
Thorn: Do you seriously
WiB: I know, I know, it was more convincing when I had all your lines memorized! But I took a few loops off for impromptu marriage counseling, so I’m out of practice.
Thorn (thinking): At least I don’t feel like I’m the weird one anymore.
WiB: And, wow, I never thought it would be so refreshing to see you! Feels like it’s been months.
