Author commentary

Veronica: Hey everyone!

For those coming back to look at this chapter, you might be surprised by the HUGE change in, uhh, everything!

The basic gist is that Another Path, the previous chapter in this 59 slot, was an indulgent “what if” scenario that had no real place in the canon — it confused people over whether Another Shoulder happened the way it did and served better as a goofy side comic before we had a place to put them (now, it’s our member club, Bittersweet Club International.) So I wanted to get rid of it! I considered redrawing it or making a chapter inspired by it, but I also thought the Volume Two book we produced in 2012 had a SUPER VALUABLE BONUS CHAPTER in Mother’s Day. And that’s why it’s the new chapter 59!

ANYWAY LET’S ENJOY A FLASHBACK INTO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

god these last two pages have been So ****in Cute, & so nostalgic……. i loved the goofy “do you guys just follow us everywhere” bits in the early comics so im absolutely Delighted to see that again!!!! aa!!
that being said, this REALLY puts into light how……not down w/ it Lucy is….. she got even more blank and emotionless the second mike showed up. it seems like she just kind of shut down her feelings as soon as she saw him. LIKE… SHE SEEMS.. like she’s just uhhh Not Happy to be talking to them, despite the fact that she’s engaging in conversation and like. idk. giving feedback on Daisy’s life, she’s not doing it in any way that shows she’s Invested. ya feel. like this is the sort of talking people do when they’re Over It but like “ill just talk so it’s not obvious im over it” but it still comes through.
also? i love the style of Daisy’s memory/explanation, it’s So ****in Cute
