When I initially wrote this scene, I was somewhat embarrassed for Lehn, on his behalf (my typical reaction to scenes like this).  But somewhere over the years it’s turned into a sort of anticipation – eagerly waiting to share these key scenes with people after keeping them to myself for all this time.  Working on a story for so long does weird things to your head, I guess.

That last panel was a doozy! Took absolutely forever, and I almost forgot Yata’s mark again.  And we’ve learned Skybold’s name now, so his cast page is up too.  (I secretly called him “Skybold of the Ridiculous Name” in my head when I was writing the script but whoops it’s not secret anymore.)
