Old Friends - 7 / ( 8 )
This page gave me such a headache with the character placement. Schrödinger is always in the left of the panel - especially if i juggle a lot of text i try to keep the speech bubbles assorted in a way that mimicks the character s placements in their panels and keep those placements. There are iron clad rules about what side of the frame who is supposed to be... then again, this isnt film.
But i am working on a multi main characters long story, so i want to keep that part simple.
But... in the middle we see the characters from the front - basically from outside of that clock, so their positions reverse, but larissa talks first, so she had to be the first to be seen again.
But then i noticed, that i drew the speech bubbles wrong in the last panel in the middle. Mukoshi is the one who proposes the toast - indicating that he warmed up to the idea of finding L or at least not being totally devastated.
I also found the information important, that schrödinger really, really doesn t know, how to contact L and where she might be. But Mukoshi might have an idea and is not a liar - so he wouldnt say - wherever she might be.
About the no-liar-thing - he might have to lie, depending on whose side he picks.
I just played that through in my head. L is an expert in manipulation. If Schrödinger manages to get a hold of her, what would happen? She d inquire about Laurel of course, whom L and gang send around. L starts playing with organized crime - the very thing they investigated. Of course she could spin something about infiltration, finding new evidence, but Schrödinger feels so guilty about not checking up on her personally, that she d want to help and be informed and then she might stumble upon Ls awesome circle of helpers, whom she already had the pleasure with...
L has no desire to work with Schrödinger or bluff around her. She keeps an eye on her to know of far she s down the line of hunting imaginary serial killers. well. the kills are real, the Satanist BUTCHER of MAVERGATE is not.
