When first posted, this comic boldly noted I might take a vacation someday soon. I don't mean, like, going anywhere, but rather I might take a brief comic break. I have nothing definite planned, it just seems like something I might need sometime soon, and I don't want it to come out of nowhere if I do.
ANYWAY! This page!
In case anyone forgot, Susan is TECHNICALLY Susan's middle name. Her first name is Tiffany.
And her last name is Pompoms.
Gosh DANG IT, 2003 me... (Erhem)
Jill is among the first names I considered for Jay, and I initially considered it because wizards can learn other people's spells, and the expression "a Jill of all trades, master of none".
Why she's apparently going by two names, I won't elaborate, but I'm going to go ahead and unleash the minor spoiler that she's not trans male. Normally, I wouldn't do that, but given what comic this is, and Jay most commonly being a masculine name, I felt it better to just be up front about it so there's no concern about pronoun usage and the like.
Speaking of traditionally masculine names starting with "J", I would have also considered "Jack" for Jay if not for Mass Effect 2, which had a female character named Jack. Though, for all I know, that character existing put the thought in my head in the first place without me realizing it, SO MAYBE I WOULDN'T HAVE?!
Ah, minds are mysterious.
