Hey, I was told they weren't dropping hats. HAD THEY BEEN HONEST, I would have realized that they had undergone hat-related transformations, and I could have gone about this in a way that allowed them to keep those forms if they so desired.
"But you're the writer, and it's 'wrong answers only'."
I WAS UNAWARE AND DELIBERATELY MISINFORMED MOVING ON
I know Luke and Larry are not the only ones who are going to say "aw" in response to this, but as nifty as those changed forms were, I didn't want the rest of this with them in those forms.
I wasn't sure I was going to do a change back in spite of wanting to, as not all of my choices are based on what I think I'll like most (I do base choices on what I think people want sometimes). When I realized the middle panel could do more than give my avatar different proportions, however, I knew what my decision was.
Plus, gosh darn it, I want to see George as George. Evil femme Larry is a fantastic form, I'm sure I will draw it again, but Larry can be evil femme Larry when that time comes.
That being one of my reasons, one might wonder why we don't see George in all his glory in this comic. The answer to that is simply that George would barely acknowledge the momentous return of his original form, and I chose to focus on the two who would react most to transforming back (Rhea's pretty chill about the whole thing, too).
