Although, there was one thing that was kind of confusing with the word balloons. I couldn't really tell when it was Thistle or Lyra talking and it took a while to figure it out. I don't know if other people have that problem too, but it might be a good idea to change the colors slightly so it is clear that there are two different characters talking? Sorta like how Gunnerkrigg Court does it?
But I look forward to seeing more (on my birthday no less!)
