View Transcript [Scene: the break room at Bookmoore's]
Robyn's co-worker (Sunny Perkins): Sooooooo...
Seems like you've really taken to Steve, huh?

Robyn [thoroughly flustered]: Look, Sunny, I know where this is going, a-and no, I only like him as a *friend*.
N-nothing more, nothing less.

Sunny: Bullshit, you're totally into him.
Look Robs, one of these days you've gotta give in to your inner hopeless romantic.
The pain, the anguish, the pent-up sexual frustration that's so prevalent in your various manuscripts, it's gotta be indicative of *something*.
You wanna be with someone.
Don't deny yourself that.

Robyn: Wait, you've read my manuscripts?
Sunny: Yeah.
They're kinda hot.
Actually.

Robyn: ...You know how weird I get when I express my feelings like that, though.
It's why I could never keep a relationship for more than a week in high school.
I... don't want Steve to see me like that.

Sunny: Y'mean like *this*?
Robyn: Wait, what?
Sunny: Coffee's overflowing.
Robyn: GYAK--
MY FEATHERS!
Sunny: See, this is why people wear, like, *clothes*.
Robyn: DAMMIT SUNNY YOU *KNOW* I CHAFE EASILY!

Author Notes

4/9/2022, 1:02 PM Enter Sunny Perkins, main cast member number 11. The best way to describe her is that she really lives up to her name, she's bright, energetic, and, well, extremely perky. I originally created Sunny as part of a concept I made for a team capstone project, my team decided to go with a different concept so I got to keep the characters, and well, I just really liked Sunny's design, so I decided to put her in the strip.

By the way, if you're wondering about her facial expressions (what with the cat mouth and fangs and all), the original form of Sunny was a catgirl for no particular reason.

4/9/2022, 2:44 PM oopsie. I definitely wear clothes just in case I spill coffee.

In all seriousness... Manuscripts? Is Robyn a writer?

Sunny seems bold but I guess we all need that one friend who tells it like it is.
4/9/2022, 2:57 PM Aspiring! She's a lit major and she's working in a bookstore, Robyn knows her life is on the right track.

As for Sunny? That boldness comes in handy sometimes. You'll see.
4/9/2022, 3:26 PM I'm curious to learn more about Sunny. She seems fun. And bright. And sunny.
4/9/2022, 3:33 PM Believe me, you'll be seeing quite a bit more of Sunny in the coming strips.
