Can we come up with a cool name for you, please? I think it would be cool to call you something neat and clever, instead of just "readers."
Yoko had a tough week this week, and so she is still meticulously pouring over colors. This is my fault more than hers for working on a week to week basis for the comic. I'm learning my lesson, though - the break between Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 will be a long one so that I can get a buttload of pages done in case something like this happens again.
As for names, you could go the Toph Beifong route and call us "Lily-livers" Or mayby "Lily-lovers"?
Also, I'm curious - how much does the group know about Thistle at this point? I remember the sketch comics you did a while back with this group, and I'm wondering if their knowledge of her is the same or if it's changed.
SUPERFANS SHOULD BE CALLED LILY LOVERS OR NEWBIES CAN BE CALLED LILY LIVERS HOLY CRAP. Yes. We shall make it so. What about "Buds"? For the general DotL Reading populous?
...I'm a little hesitant to answer questions like this because the comic should do that, but it's a question about a generally abstract concept that is established through behavior through anything else... BLEH, word vomit. This is how my brain thinks. To answer shortly and without a lot of detail: not much. These events take place either immediately before or are flashbacks prior to the point the sketch comics started. I know I've mentioned this on Patreon in a private feed to people funding the comic, but I'll tell you, too: Chapter 3 is going to end with a very, very familiar scene.
