Creator's Notes

Here's a lighter page contrasting what came before. I plan on making 3 or 4 parts of those "flashbacks", because its a subplot of the chapter and it's fun (it's shorter and needs less to no words at all, which makes it a challenging job). Idk if i mentioned it before, but the poem is called Song of Nature by Ralph Waldo Emerson. (Having written that, I just remembered Josef already mentioned it several pages back. But meh, i'll just leave it here.)

As you can observe from the page above and the previous pages that displayed the Benoite Massingale Club's vicinity, it lacks--in search for a better word--in people. Well, that's because the BM club is strictly exclusive to people that meets the criteria set up by the widowed founder, Benoite Clarissa Massingale. It's not an A-list kind of criteria, just so you know. But i'm not going to elaborate it since it's not that important to the story. All I can say is that the members are carefully chosen, because they are "special to some groups of people" and that they're significant contributors.

If you're still wondering on how they squeezed that miniature boat in a balloon's narrow mouth. Well they just used a big funnel or ring (whichever) and let the elastic lips of the balloon's mouth wrap around it. Then they carefully squeezed it in there, without breaking or splitting the almost thin and elastic skin of the balloon. I just made that up as I wrote this.
Also if you notice the colours of the balloons, you'll notice it corresponds to the colour-theme of the female in the group. There's no male-hating on my part nor portrayed in my comic, just that I like pastel & candy colours. And that having dark blue, hunter green, and maroon coloured balloons doesn't seem an appealing nor realistic sense of what real balloons are. I mean, c'mon have you ever seen a hunter green balloon? ...maybe there is, but that's NOT what I wanted.

To note: if you're a keen observer on Meija and Josef's interactions, you might have noticed these glowing things floating near them. It happens when their moment is mutual, not just for the sake of touching. I wanted to bring it up because it has meaning to what this story entails. (actually, a lot more meaning. You wouldn't believe it if I tell you. That's why i'm going to ease those symptoms in to make sense as a whole, when it all concludes.)

That's it for my creator's explanation bit.
