I feel so bad about that last panel.
Which is really silly, because the proper "we're commenting on Fable 2" move would 100% be for Not-Arthur to have done something matching the menace shown in panel two, and I do think it's funny.
Nonetheless, her expecting people to be there, and them not being there to eat the sandwiches with her MASSIVELY triggers my empathy receptors or something, and I genuinely feel like I have to make it up to her somehow later.
See, this is why I mostly write comedy. I'm capable of writing drama, but I'd crash and burn badly if it was on the regular.
