Very little actual SLEEPING going on
Oh man, I love how this one turned out. It's been a while since we had a page that was completely dialog free, and I think it's especially nice to have one after Layla's rant earlier. What's more, though, I just love how many little character moments are wedged into this:

It's neat seeing Ichabod just hanging out with somebody for once, though one wonders what a Nitpicker and a Mad Scientist would talk about all evening (also, check out the brief appearance by The Cap'n!)

There's just something delightfully wrong about Layla having a book on seduction. In retrospect, though, a funnier title would have been "12,789 Seduction Tips for the Young Businesswoman." Drat.

A microcosm of the Hector siblings' entire relationship: Megaweapon's a brat, Jenna's unhappy, and Kevin's oblivious.

...which is no doubt what's bothering Trigger here. However will he act on this displeasure? :D

And, once again, THERE'S A NEW PAGE IN THE FAR OUT THERE MAID CAFE SAGA WAITING FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO VOTE FOR THINGS! Actually, it's been up since yesterday (Oh, I'm so sneaky!)

"(...)though on(e) wonders what a Nitpicker and a Mad Scientist would talk about all evening(...)"

Um...nitpicking and mad science? (Duh?)

What I MEAN is, I'm not sure I'm up to the challenge of depicting what that dialog would sound like. It's hard enough writing ONE character who's clearly smarter than me. I can't even fathom TWO of them feeding off each other's eccentricity. (but man, if someone ELSE could pull it off, I'd sure love to read it)

My guess is that their conversation would go something like this (as seen through "muggle" eyes):

Icabod: "Jargon-Jargon-Jargon-Jargon."

Dr. Hector: "Techspeak-Techspeak-Techspeak-Techspeak."

Icabod: "Jargon-Jargon-Jargon-Jargon."

Dr. Hector: "Techspeak-Techspeak-Techspeak-Techspeak."

Either: "Arcane joke related to knowledge of particular skill-set."

Both: *raucous laughter*

See, that shouldn't be terribly difficult to write. ;-)

Ironically, that's actually rather close to what a lot of my technobabel-involving stories look like until I sit down to type out the specific dialog for a given page.

"We have to find the *insert science-y sounding thing* before *insert dramatic sounding thing* happens!"

As long as the actual plot points are clear, the tech-speak is really an afterthought.

I prefer the current book title.
So hey, at least I'm pleased!
