Did you know that Rayne is in panel three?

I didn’t, and I made the page!

No, really. Just noticed now, while jockeying the panel into position. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read over this one and not even noticed him. Kinda like previously-uncaught glitches in other pages, I suppose.

Crop, crop, scalencrop, scale, scale. Plenty of wiggle room for dialogue.

Also. I’m either going Mostly Deaf in 40 minute increments or the Buffy The Vampire Slayer theme music is WAY LOUDER for s7 than it was for s1-6. Or I’m watching it in AC3. Too tired to figure out which, too deliriously happy I’m not totally FREAKING OUT ABOUT BUGS right now to bother to find out.

Are you ready to finish this, bitch?

(Eight pages left of the chapter when I stopped writing above; seven left when I bothered to tack on this bit. Next up was 5.48, or reflex -18-. Go there if you’re a Chronological Order person. Though if you’re a COP (Chronological Order Person, c’mon!), odds are you’ve already wigged out at the state of 2e metadata documentation* and have raged about it on IRC at some point.

Me, I’m just happy I still have something to say about each page.

* The art pass words, the writing pass words, the occasional massively ginormous rants, etc. I mention dates wherever and whenever either because I think they’re important for personal reasons, or to underscore the fact that big steaming 20 to 40-plus page whacks of story don’t just Manifest. There is no segregation of art pass, word pass, and rant pass. Maybe there should be. In some cases there’s as much as a month (or more!) between paragraphs. Random edits, revisions. Documentation – one of the bigger inconsistencies of the second edition.

20090907 (44) – Lettered. Seem to be running out of steam – I spent a good 20-30 minutes just kind of staring at the page before I flattened it and saved off the webscale.

Mastering notes, 2016.12.07 – Reworked quite a bit of the dialogue.
