(Internal Monologue) *sound* [Gesture/action.]
Cassieu: Crrk—emember now, this is an ambassador we’re talking to. She manages healthcare provision and medical records law so don’t be— Ahem. Eosinophile asks, “Where do you get your wardrobe ideas?”
Japhet: Dumpster beneath the School of Theatre.
Cassieu: BULL crap, that’s tailored and so was the suit!
Japhet rolls their eyes, and entire head, dramatically.
Japhet: Drat. Truth is, back when I was ten, I realized I would never be the most fashionable. Someone was always more up to date than me. I couldn’t take it, so I gave up on staying a la mode in favor of anachronism.
Japhet raises their finger triumphantly .
Japhet: Now no one, no one, can top my superlative anti-fashion.
Cassieu: Yeah, that sounds more like you.
Cassieu: Anon asks, "what you do to stay calm under pressure?"
Mads concentrates on the question, stimming with raptor hands held up close to her torso.
Mad: Pressure, huh? I try to break down what’s causing the pressure. Break it down so far that the problem loses its name and face. It becomes a system of little obstacles to topple one at a time. This way, I never have to stare down anything daunting.
She folds her arms and looks off to the side, jaw set.
Mad: In my head, it’s already in pieces.
Cassieu appears on screen, reading from a list of questions.
Cassieu: For Cassieu? That seems against the spirit! But I don’t see why not. Anon asks, “Aren’t you a bit..
Cassieu gives the document a Samuel Johnson meme squint.
Cassieu: “Inexperienced to handle the safety and lifestyle challenges of...loving..."
Cassieu deadpans the camera .
Cassieu: Mom, you invented the private message function. Please use it, I’m begging you.
EDIT: It looks like the weekly hiatus mini comics need to become bi-weekly, i.e. every other week, both for saving time to build the color comic buffer and also make sure the ratio of color story to PR questions is higher. Hopefully that's okay early on, as it may change as the Unnatural Life team expands!
Sevigny and I are still working out the kinks in getting the production of comic proper and hiatus mini comics to run like a well-oiled machine long-term, but we're getting there! So uhh, here's three weeks of mini comics at once! Now we pick up and try again at weekly mini comic posting.
Hope you can take some time this week to take care of yourself and the people close to you. The world has been nightmarish, suspicious, and isolating lately. My own instinct is to barrel headfirst down a path of constant research, protest, and news feeds, and I cannot stress enough how inhumane that path is. I have to remind myself a lot that despite any circumstances, people are still people, and people need to care and to be cared for. So I'm hopin you too can find time to be humane with yourself and with your family, blood and found.
