This is one of those pages that will make more sense further along in the story. The final panel is incredibly significant. I'll be making Mersnai in panel 1 into a free wallpaper if I'm half-way alive tomorrow.
Please vote for a random pic of Siveki. Finally, if there's not $15 more in donations, you'll get a Cast Q/A on Thursday instead, and Not Alone will remain on hold until April. Details in the news over there.
I know there was something else I wanted to say, but my throat hurts too much to think. Going to bed. Nighty, folks. Thanks for reading.
THE NEXT MORNING: Ug, I feel even worse today. I really hope this isn't the flu. Starting to get body aches. D: I remember what I wanted to say last night: about the final panel, the important bit here is that Mersnai is turning AWAY. He could easily have killed Vrin right there. He didn't even try. Why why why?
Also, does Mersnai's tattoo intrigue you? It actually MEANS something. You can even get it on a shirt.
