So, I went into this page with no rough draft, no plan whatsoever outside of the rough knowledge of what happens later, and already an hour or so late. Frankly, I was too worn out to really bother with actually, you know, THINK of anything, so I just kind of started drawing, and a few hours later this happened. You know what? It worked, dang it! Layla tugging Avatar out of some little-girl's-feet-shaped-craters? That's just plain cute, right there. And this is the second time in recent memory where a page i just made up off the top of my head turned out better than the ones that were planned out in advance. Clearly, this whole "actually thinking about where the plot is going" thing is overrated.

Funny thing about that, though: as I was drawing it, I thought Alphonse was hacking the locking mechanism of the door... which made no sense, since we'd already seen that the doors have to be opened manually. I think the altered explanation is actually a lot funnier, since it's BLATANTLY absurd rather than just accidentally so, AND it gives Layla another chance to ask a perfectly valid question (If you're wondering, I'd say that Tabitha only had the idea to use the Alphonse projection to transfer power AFTER they opened the previous door. She's probably fiddling with all sorts of stuff as the ideas come to her... not unlike my writing process!)

considering the general lack of common sense that MAD SCIENCE! Has, I suppose doing things effeciently is never high on the list of priorities their stuff has.

Well... Either they've discovered the spiky blue thing (probably quite a bit bigger by now if the obvious happens - which I admit doesn't always happen in this comic) or there's some other glowy blue thing that's been thrown away.

Even Alphonse actually being there makes no sense - Tabitha being able to transfer short bursts of power through isn't much harder to swallow :P

I did enjoy this page, although it took me at least 30 attempts to actually get it to load. There may be something wrong with my net.
Hmm... This year's Christmas game seems likely to have a sci-fi theme, and now I feel like having some foot-like indentations in a space station or something. Just because.

And Zaealix is right - Mad Scientists are rarely concerned with doing things efficiently. Or, in any any way that may actually make sense. They are called "mad" after all.
