Okay, bad news first: there's no Voting Incentive AGAIN. I know, I'm not happy about it either, but as always, the latest Conventional Wisdom update left me way behind on everything else, and didn't even get started inking this page until LATE. What's more, I really wanted to work on all the facial expressions for this one, and splitting my time between TWO comics wouldn't leave much time for that (So, yeah. Poor me. I had to spend all night drawing pictures of cute girls. Boo Hoo)

I think it's a fair trade this time, though. Layla and Tabitha continue to be great fun to bounce off each other, and we even get another bit of Alphonse cuteness in the mix!

Is it just me, or does Layla have trust issues?
Which would be perfectly understandable given her life.

It's been brought up a few times that Layla is a better person than she wants people to know, but it's also true that she's capable of pulling some pretty mean stunts. But then, who isn't?

(I had some stuff about children's reactions to people here, but it seems more fitting for the forum (both in length and content), I may post it over there if anyone is interested)

Back on topic, I've been enjoying this scene.

Don't forget that she's basically a professional supervillianess. It's not called "trust issues", it's "survival skills".
But yeah, she's nicer than that career would suggest. Whether she likes it or not.

I'm starting to think this as her having been with Trigger for so long that people within his category fits nicely into her "ignore everything else" zone. :x

On the side, this could be the typical villain weakness sort of thing. XD

As Antonio says "Don't forget that she's basically a professional supervillianess." who was fired because she wasn't sufficiently evil. (Waaaaay back in the very first arc.) I don't know if she was simply not intrinsically evil enough or if she was 'contaminated' by all the time she spent with Trigger. And since then she has been surrounded by people who range from good (Trigger, Avatar, Tabitha) to basically decent (Ichabod, etc.) so she's now hopelessly contaminated with (GASP) decency. (And finally realizing that that isn't necessarily bad.)

Oh man, it's hard to know what all I should say here, lest I should give away future plot points (Layla's inner workings and past figure strongly in some future arcs) Hmmm... I'll at least throw this out: for all the talk about Trigger and the other characters "contaminating" Layla with their insidious goodness, we also have to remember what we've seen of her Dad. For a lying, thieving con artist, he was definitely a caring, loving father. How do you think those conflicting messages have influenced her?

Also, regarding Layla and Trigger... well, let me put it this way: Layla ADORES Trigger, but that doesn't stop her from seeing him as a silly little boy who doesn't have the first clue how the world works. As far as Layla's concerned, the only reason Trigger likes her is because he doesn't know any better (why do you think it bothered her so much when he actually got angry at her earlier?)

(though nobody will be notified if I link it that way (unless I just happened to stumble into some cheat code thing (in which case I wonder if I will be included as part of "everybody" or the computer will assume I know I wrote it and won't tell me)))
I never said that she was intrinsecally "evil", though I mantain that she's perfectly capable, and presumable willing, should the need arise.
But Seros Senric was talking about "trust issues". That, at least, shouldn't be an issue; she was surrounded since very early by people she really shouldn't trust, and I assume she at least learned THAT much.
