Author Notes

11/13/2022, 12:23 PM And finally, we reach the centerpiece of this arc. Everything has been building up to this one, tragic moment, as suddenly both Tiny David's and Kenzie's nights come crashing down. In certain cases a bit more literally than others.

I was a little apprehensive about the third panel, but I think it really turned out well.

11/13/2022, 12:28 PM Wow, holy shit, I really didn't expect a slap coming! I mean, it's not too out of left field considering they're teenagers and emotions run high and cloud judgements and all that, but god damn. I really didn't expect Kenzie to do something like that. Those last two panels are just stunned silence. It's also really cool we get to see Erica's and Kaiden's reactions to this as well. I think it adds something to get some outsider reaction to the whole thing.

I have no clue how they're going to reconcile something as dramatic as this.
11/13/2022, 12:33 PM If they can reconcile it at all. Teenage relationships can be pretty damn make or break.

11/14/2022, 9:23 AM Unfortunately, she did...
11/17/2022, 12:20 PM That third panel is visceral! Well done!
