aww bless you. And yeah, I like to write comics that — aside from confict resolutions — don’t have “spoilers” and the interesting things aren’t *what* happens, but *how* they happen. It’s like how when I was reading Harry Potter the whole “snape kills dumbledore” spoiler didn’t upset me because like… um that doesn’t tell me SHIT. How does it happen, why, what leads up to it, what happens after… that spoiler made me wanna read the book EVEN MORE because the context was so dang important to me.
So I try to write stuff in a way that like, if I say “Claire quits her job” even though it’s a key plot point, it tells you nothing because the context really matters — is she mad when it happens, is it sudden, is she on talking terms with people after that, what is her continued involvement like, does she get another job, if so *what, could she get her job back, why would or wouldn’t she want to, etc.
