In case you thought today's comic was too sappy or happy, there's a lurking presence that may look a little familiar to darken the mood.
I felt this moment was necessary for these "couples" (even though none of them are romantically involved), but a reminder of the dangers around them was also necessary. I think Alduraithel's spying did the trick nicely. Whether he's helping or hurting remains to be seen (no pun intended).
If today's comic were to have a soundtrack, it would be the fourth movement of Rachmaninoff's "All-Night Vigil." There are many excellent recordings of this masterpiece, but this one is my favorite. Even if you think it doesn't go with today's strip, it's still an achingly beautiful piece of music.
Besides having a superheroic weekend planned, I'm also going to be finally catching up on my e-mails this weekend. I've fallen back into old habits and refuse to let it slide. Anyone who's written me an email within the past month or so should have a reply by Sunday. If you don't get a reply, your email may have gone to my junk mail folder so feel free to poke me again. I made a resolution for 2012 and I'm going to stick to it!
That's all from me for now.
Rock on and have a nice weekend!
