HEY, I bet you thought I wasn't gonna get this page up today, didn't ya? Well DON'T BE SILLY! It's not like I completely lost track of what day of the week it was and also spent waaaaaaay too long messing with the details of these backgrounds that you only barely even see in the final version of the page. There's NO WAY that would happen! ...yeah, I kind of got really wrapped up in using my extra day off to do some much-needed chores around here, this was supposed to already be done this morning.

But there's two things: first, there's finally a new TWC Voting Incentive up! And this one actually WAS up in the morning! ...technically. The second thing is that all my talk about only doing one update this week was, um, kind of not true. This is the only "real" comic going up this week, but since tomorrow's Halloween, there's still a special page on the way for that! Yep, once again, I didn't really schedule my break very well... or maybe it's VERY well, since otherwise I'd be trying to squeeze this in between TWO regular updates. Well, either way, the Halloween page won't be going up until around the same as this one, so around 8-ish in the evening. Clearly because Halloween is SOOOOO SPOOOKY that the comic has to come out AT NIIIIIGHT! ...and also because I blew so much time fiddling with this page that there's just no way I'd be able to get another one done in the next couple of hours. The funny thing, though, is this actually works out pretty well for what I've got planned. See, after ten years of group shots of the whole cast in out-of-universe costumes, I kind of need to do something different this Halloween, and the idea I settled on honestly works better if it comes out fairly late. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it! So see you tomorrow night!

@ Comic: So he still works for the guild, good for him!

@ Incentive: I don't think that this was originally a Mad Science Lab. It's possibly more of a re-purposed high-tier restaurant, likely based around baking or confectionery. Possibly for those people who have plastic skin, due to Laminating after Seasoning. Soul Calibration is to ensure that emotional strain, pain or negativity doesn't affect the sweetness of the product.

One of the unstated goals of sending apprentice nitpickers out with veterans is to scare off anyone who isn't fully committed. If they can put up with the inevitable annoying behavior of their mentors without quitting, The Guild knows they've got members for life!

Also, I really tried to come up with some sort of scifi parody of the "Oh, you never would believe where those Keebler Cookies come from" jingle just now, but I came up empty :(

...A place that requires Soul Calibration would never do mass production. After all, the only real effect it has is to make Snobbish Rich People feel more Snobbish about the requirements for the food they're eating. It's the type of place that charges over $50 for their most basic biscuit. A singular, plain, biscuit you can buy as a supermarket in packets for something like $2 for a pack of 20, with nothing to mark different from any other biscuit (unless everything produced there has a stamp of authenticity).
