I found myself wanting to show more of Fairy Ellen, so... I did.
Also, I wanted to show Lady Elf Larry with regular Rich, so... I did.
I would say this EGSNP is self-indulgent, but that feels like an indulgent statement with EGSNP.
(Also, that last panel is totally cheating visually, because Larry referencing meta-gaming would definitely be out of character.)
(I don't care that it's cheating beyond the desire to let y'all know that I know.)
