Thousands of shipping-obsessed tumblr users just felt a sudden urge to make new fanfics or gif sets and are wondering why.

So, this is another one of those pages that's EXTRA frustrating because it took forever to finish, but the average reader would never know it. I mean, two girls sitting on a couch, how hard can THAT be to draw? Now, those of you who've been reading for a while now have seen me complain more than once about drawing characters leaning all over each other like this (move one of them around a bit and suddenly you have to redraw the other, which then means you have to go back and redraw the first one and the cycle continues). So a page where such character positioning is literally the entire joke? That took a LOT of fiddling to get right, and I still don't think that last panel really came together properly.

But all complaining and fanservice-teasing aside, this page DOES serve an important plot-related role: even when Tabitha's being painfully self-conscious, she's still one of the least self-aware people in existence.


5/19 EDIT: Okay, just a heads up to anyone coming by Friday and wondering why the comic is even later than usual. I had a MASSIVE headache last night (like, "if I move more than an inch I'm gonna throw up" massive) and that kiiiiiinda made it hard to get any work done. The next page IS coming, but I only just now managed to start working on it. If nothing else, just keep an eye on Twitter, tumblr, and Facebook for an alert when the page is actually done. Sorry!

Bit surprised layla didn't move out of the way as Tabitha went from leaning on her to laying upon her, buuut I can imagine it as either being a sudden thing or Layla simply being patient with Tabitha. To me it's only really fan-servicy because well...Layla's build.

I wanted to say a couple of things regarding the page/characters, one; that i think that you did an excellent job with the positioning and body language in *all* the panels. And two, my natural impression of the dynamic between Tabitha and Layla is that of two best friends, one being really touchy-feely, and the other who likes her personal space, but puts up with the mannerisms of the friend because that's just how their relationship *is*. Frankly, the only reason someone might see a romantic thing going on between Layla and either Tabitha or Trigger, is due to that being what *they* want to see. anyone that says the comic says otherwise is, confusing the comic for their headcanon. that second part was just me saying that if you were, no don't worry, you're not missing some aspect of the writing that might unambiguously say otherwise; and if you weren't worrying that, just me trying to say not *all* of your readers are trying to mentally pair off characters regardless of the way they're actually written.

Yay for authorial intent triumphing over headcaonon! :D

Possible Layla reactions/thoughts:

First panel: We are two friends talking.
Second panel: Umm, a little close, but I can live with this. Just give me a minute.
Third panel: Don't shove!
Fourth panel: Ask before you use someone as a mattress!

More seriously, the only panel that looks like it'd be uncomfortable for both of them is the third panel.

And of course it'd turn out that the jagged metal spike isn't actually metal, but rather made out of some kind of cheap plastic.

I see this comic being the act of Tabitha both literally and figuratively completely untensing herself from the act of meeting and interacting with either and/or both Stillez and Avatar. You even have her collapsing as her muscles relax!
