I really wasn't sure if I wanted to invoke ponies in panel two, but then I started sketching it, and it sort of became a thing I had to finish.

And now I'm linking to a color version that's twice as big as that if you're in to that sort of thing.
The color choices might seem odd, but I REALLY didn't want to just keep their natural hair colors and be done. What I wound up doing was a bizarre alchemy involving color schemes using their original hair color as a basis, then using one of the new colors as the basis for a new color scheme, and... I'm not entirely sure how to describe it. Coloring happened.
As for this storyline, yes, it's wrapping up and will end Friday! 78 comics seems far too short for... Wait, 78? Holy carp. Um... I'm certain every last comic was 100% necessary!
But before we move on, I promised to link to glove-related comics in the previous commentar, and then completely forgot about it. Go me! On the bright side, I can do that nowish:
Less in the background and subtle than I remembered! Thank you all for finding that. Some people pointed out Tedd's gauntlet, but that is a gauntlet. I mean, yes, it *is* a glove, and I can understand one thinking of it, but it is something else and has nothing to do with the watches.
