into the village. weird looks get got, a heckler arrives to heckle whoever pacem is friends with.
Do I spot a third protagonist? ;)
just some jerk!
though the other protagonists are also just some jerks, so that doesn't narrow anything down. author ambiguity!
Nah, I checked the extra art out and (I think, anyway?) the design doesn't seem to match, soyeah, it is just some jerk I guess.
I need to know now so I don't do that thing I do where I pronounce a character's name wrong for all eternity: is Pacem pronounced "Pach-em" like I think it is?
bingo, that's exactly it!
I thought I'd commented on it before, but it looks like I didn't. I just wanted to say I really like that short moment in the second panel. Not a lot of fiction is mindful of things like preferred pronouns, and it's really nice to see it brought up so naturally and casually. I like it a lot. :)
thank you! gender, sexuality- they're fairly lax things on diculn. writing lucid spring is an exercise not just in changing my own vocabulary, but also in writing something that's very inclusive and also very natural.
i appreciate that you appreciate that!
