I'm pretty sure there's direct pictorial evidence of Trigger breaking every one of these rules (except the last one)

Another late, half-finished page? Yeah, and it comes with another unexpected excuse. See, on Christmas, SmackJeeves unleashed their LOOONG promised new site design. Among other things, it features bigger cover pages for all the comics instead of those little rectangle title banners... which, despite MONTHS of heads ups, I never got around to drawing before the new design went live. Any comic without a title page can't show up on the SJ main page when it updates, or in recommendations, and I think it won't turn up on searches either, so I kinda had to get that taken care of QUICK. Well, I managed to get at least some temporary covers up for Far Out There and Conventional Wisdom (the main comics anyway, still working on the Incentive/Patreon galleries), but that extra work sort of ate into the time for this page... which I was ALREADY running late on due to how late TUESDAY'S page was. As a result, I don't have a new Voting Incentive up yet either. There'll be one by tomorrow, though, presumably when the colored in version of the comic is posted. Sorry for all the delays! I'll be back in a normal groove soon!

Oh, and it didn't help that this page was deceptively hard to write. I mean, it all boils down to a joke about groping. That took many, many, MANY rewrites to achieve a sufficient level of wide-eyed innocence for that not to come off as creepy. At least, I HOPE it doesn't come off as creepy.

I'd say you succeeded on the anti-creepy front. I also like how Tabitha starts out totally captivated, then fades to casual listening. I went and checked out the title page, and I think it looks really good. I was expecting less from 'thrown together at the last minute,' but I guess you have lots of practice at that particular skill :P.

I'm with Tabitha on this one. So, not creepy. ;-}}

@alt_txt: Trigger had to learn these rules some way. Probably by breaking them. For the last one, I'm guessing there was once pictorial evidence, but Layla "took care" of it.

I don't know if Trigger could sound creepy even if you made him say something creepy. It would still just seem like he was saying something without knowing/realizing what it meant. Because Trigger.

He's right, though, that danger zone does take up a much larger than usual area on her small frame, so probably harder to avoid. Fortunately for him, his sabotage training included detection and avoidance of dangerous traps! Who would have guessed that sabotage and Layla-hugs was an overlapping skill set?

Trigger: They're too big! It makes hugging her hard!

Everyone else (particularly the male readers): ...shame she hides them so much.
