The chapter ended on Wednesday, but I decided to squeeze in one more little scene. See, the prom chapter featured all the main kids in the story, and most of the teachers. There were even a few quickie cameos, to get a couple more faces showing up. Then this chapter caught us up with some of the young adult cast. At this point, unless I'm forgetting someone, every single major character save for Brother Arthur and Vincent have played some role in this past arc. Brother Arthur was intentionally left out for now, but Vincent... I unfortunately just didn't have much for him to do.

I was thinking about that at the start of the week. So this page was kind of a last minute addition, just thrown in to say I haven't forgotten about the guy. It also allowed me to keep Vincent in the loop about what happened at prom. I mean, if Fara's texting Jess all night, it's probably safe to assume she'd be texting Vincent too. It's otherwise not really that important of a page, but I just like the guy, and haven't been able to work with him in a while.

Little else to say about this one, but I'll just add that the blonde lady in panel 4 and 5 is his coworker, another therapist. If you go way back, you might even recall we've seen her before. She was Carmen's therapist. I can't recall if I've ever given her a name, though. If I haven't, how about Angie? She looks like an Angie, right? She's not important to the story or anything and we might not ever see her again, but I just like to make sure everyone's got a name... just in case. ^_^

(And yes, because someone will ask, I did consider giving Carmen a cameo here too, but it's kinda late for a kid her age to be at an appointment. So yeah, it's her therapist, but that doesn't mean she was that "last patient for the day". Presumably, Angie's got lots of patients besides ones that just happen to be future protagonists.) XD

I like being wrong 😜
This is a nice bonus scene to the chapter catching up with Vincent

I'm curious to see where Brother Arthur has been during all this.

During prom? Probably just home. Doing some light reading or really anything to leave him blissfully unaware. I'm sure he's the type that hopes "what happens at prom, stays at prom". XD

Wait what? The first 3 panels seem to show Vincent talking on the phone, (presumably with Fara) but then from panel 4 onwards he's texting? I'm confused.
Jocelyn 24th Jan 2020, 11:44 AM edit delete reply

He's reading the texts Fara is sending, and talking to himself in response to them. Sorry if that wasn't clear. ^^;

Yeah never mind... my eyes (or my mind) were playing tricks on me at first. The pose, and the bit of visible ponytail in the first 3 panels combined to give me the impression he was holding a land-line phone handset to his ear. Him talking to himself solidified the impression, and because the phone he's actually holding is black against a dark background I missed it entirely. Almost immediately after posting I looked again, and suddenly I noticed the details I missed the first time around. Don't mind me. :-)

I just assumed he was using a voice-to-text dictation thing, lol

Don't feel bad, I've looked at this probably 4 or 5 times and I assumed what you did UNTIL JUST NOW when I went back and looked. Magic!

If Angie is Carmen's therapist does that mean she'll have a more prominent role in "Magical"?

I’m sorry, your beautiful comic doesn’t deserve unsolicited copyediting

I admit I was debating whether to say it was "fazed" not "phased" myself.

I'm not fased phazed bothered by typos.

I mean... while it's not technically accurate, phased out still kind of means the same thing. It would mean that you weren't paying attention, your body was in a different phase than your mind.

I don't remember seeing puddles in these two chapters...but I could be wrong.

Yet another person moving in? Fara's really gonna have to get a bigger place soon! I'm not sure there's enough room in that apartment for her + Vince + Jessica + Rain + Emily + Baby Name Pending.

Vincent doesn't live there, he just hangs out a lot cuz of Fara.
