New Readers: We're currently doing a side story that involves reader interaction. See here for details. The main story will resume Tues, March 13th.
Yay! Longish was picked! First time the option I had hoped for was chosen (yes, apparently I'm horrible at predictions). Now I can launch my evil plan! ...okay...so it's probably more devious than evil, but the latter sounds much cooler in a poll situation. And instead of hoping you'd pick the one I'd prefer (which obviously rarely happens), I thought I'd spell it out and then let you decide.
Over the weekend, as I was musing over story ideas for Annie, I came across Page 02 and had a spark of inspiration. Annie could be the girl in blue with the black braid! She could have just recently entered L.i.F.e. and the boy next to her is helping her figure things out (no, they didn't know each other before meeting in L.i.F.e.). Her story would have a more "slice-of-life" pacing but it'd also be fun to have her witness some of Kleya's experiences as well, such as the opening library scene. And you'd get an extra character (the boy) to try to spot during the main storyline. A good plan, yes?
If you agree, pick "Evil Plan!" in the poll. If not, umm...perhaps you could pick the Braid so I could sneak this in anyway? 😉
Obligatory Disclaimer: Though I obviously have a preference, I can work with whatever is chosen.
And for the vote incentive, I re-scripted panel 1.
