There's a LOT of disgruntled self-deprecation in this page, believe you me. See, this is another one of those instances where this page was SUPPOSED to be part of the NEXT page, but after hours and hours of trying, I just couldn't make that version of the page work. It's extra frustrating because this was supposed to be the page that dropped the first seeds of Ichabod actually initiating the next major plot arc, something I've wanted to start building momentum towards for a while now... and IMMEDIATELY I've had to push part of it back a page. How's that for an encouraging omen?

Well, for a page that had to be reimagined from the ground up at the very last minute, I DO like how the shading turned out here. Compared to the last time I I tried to depict Ichabod's room with the lights off, this looks a lot more like actual light and shadow rather than just, like, smog or something.

Oh, and speaking of light and shadow, today's Voting Incentive has a lot of that going on... though I had to drag myself away before I was actually done with it. I was fully prepared to spend another three hours doing multiple layers of shading before I realized how late it was. I swear, I've gotta stop getting more wrapped up in the Incentives than the comics. This is getting kind of silly...

@ "Bod Bod": HOW MUCH OF THAT DID YOU GET DOWN! DID YOU AT LEAST GET THE MAIN POINTS? TELL ME YOU GOT THE BASICS AND THAT YOU DIDN'T JUST FORGET EVERYTHING THE MOMENT YOU WERE CALLED. ALSO, SAVE, PRINT, EMAIL YOURSELF AND EMAIL YOUR BOSS WITH WHATEVER YOU JUST WROTE, NOW!!!

@ Incentive: She's getting rid of what remains of her Xmas decorations now that it's safe enough to approach in the environmental suit, isn't she? (since it looks a little like a Xmas Tree star). Also, in my headcannon of what happened in this incentive, if you agree with what I've already said, that "star"-like object absorbed/devoured the rest of her Xmas Tree Decorations in something akin to a survival of the fittest battle.

Absolutely no part of that paragraph contradicts any established part of the far Out There universe.

Not. One. Single. Part. :)

@ Blitz: Well, yeah. Almost anything's possible in the established Far Out There Universe. I could imagine insects that use dust bunnies as a medium to time travel and it wouldn't contradict any established part of the Far Out There Universe. Or an intergalactic monstrosity theoretically capable of destroying civilisations or even the entire Universe that can't due to it's fatal weakness to and/or fear of any and all ants.
