Veronica: HEY EVERYBODY!!!
WELCOME TO A NEW CHAPTER!!!!!!!!!!
.. Or is it? Some of you may find this sequence veryyyyyy familiar…
It’s “Dinner Time”, a Bittersweet Club International member-exclusive chapter that takes place in the midst of Volume Three. When Souppy and I were working on the omnibus, we thought this was a very valuable chapter to include as part of the canon story, and so we posted it while that campaign was running, as a flashback. Now it’s in its rightful place in the archive, happening whe nit was supposed to happen!
Back when BCI started out, there were a few times I would draw canonical stories that honestly deserved to be real chapters! It happened with “Another Trip” (Remade into “Escape Route”), and it’s happened with Dinner Time now. It took a bit of time to settle on the AUs that fill the members’ archive now.
I always regretted Dinner Time being trapped behind a paywall, because there’s a lot of Lucy’s mother here, a character who’s not often depicted. This chapter shows that she was certainly aware something was up with Lucy, but felt a bit powerless about how she should deal with it, as she didn’t want to smother.
