I had an unreasonable amount of fun making this page. Especially panels 2 and 3, even though Jovi’s face was NOT cooperating for the longest time. In the sketch San is even more self-satisfied and Lena… just makes me laugh to look at her. Check it out here. Also, enjoy my chicken scratch writing.
Okay, quick background stuff so Ten’s concern makes a little more sense:
Visia is pretty much the kilms’ version of beer. Cheap, common, and available in a variety of strengths and flavors. The only other time we’ve seen Ten with an intoxicant was back on pages 123/124 (thanks for posting the link for people a page back, SRES!). That was a different drink (merum, similar to visia but made from a different plant base and a bit stronger.)
Papaver is one that hasn’t been mentioned in-comic before. It’s a harder drug that can be used in a variety of ways, including mixing it in with food or drink. Ten’s never had it before, but has seen what hardcore long term use can do to people (hint: nothing good) and is understandably a bit hesitant to cross that threshold.
On an almost completely unrelated note, I want to recommend the documentary “Happy” to anyone in need of a smile. It’s streaming on Netflix, but I’m willing to bet it’s other places on the internet for free if you’re not a Netflix person. I finished up the last bit of this update while watching it.
Oh, and if anyone’s having trouble with the dimness of the panels, let me know and I’ll lighten things up a bit.
Happy November, everyone!
