That last panel wound up being really simple, but I was trying some absurdly complex, "the system can't take it, captain" nonsense with a whole mess of overlapping text at first, and I was having SO much trouble with it.

Given that the whole point was to give the impression of getting rid of all that text, I'm REALLY not sure what I was thinking.

Fairy Exposition!

There have been times in the past when I've gotten into the technical details of things not because they were immediately relevant in some way, but because I thought they were neat.

Because of that being a thing I have previously done, I thought people might assume I was doing that again when talking about Susan's fairies.

"Whoops, Dan's off on a technical tangent again! Silly Dan."

It took a lot of willpower to not broadcast "this is extremely immediately relevant, actually!"

There are a few reasons why I decided to give Susan a dedicated spell for doing this, but one was simply so they had a reason to talk about it in time to provide context for this.
