The canon EGSNP storyline, Nanase and Her Fox, will be continuing in the meantime on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
While I need to finish planning the whole of the next arc, I know enough about how it begins to get pages done in advance, and intend to do so.
Speaking of the next story arc, it's title will be Hope.
I wanted to foreshadow that Ellen might have information about uryuom projections, but I didn't have any way of bringing up her "second life" without it being a little TOO obvious.
So I stealth foreshadowed by briefly mentioning Ellen.
I have NO idea if that reminded anyone of Ellen's dreams, but it was the best I felt I could do without putting up a big sign that said "Ellen might know something about this."
So, um... If anyone did think of that, enjoy your stealthy cookies. They're... Somewhere. I think. Gonna be honest, if someone's already eaten them, I'd have no idea.
What's going on back there?
Kevin understands very few of Ashley's interests.
I wanted something going on in the background to imply that Ellen was there to hang out with Grace. Grace wasn't part of this conversation, however, so I needed her to be preoccupied with something.
I left her in Ashley's capable hands.
