There’s never a to-do list so long that fate can’t intervene with one more item.
I picture Felicity as someone who has limited empathy for those under stress. I think, up to this point in her life, the world has been pretty predictable for Felicity. She has a personality that makes it easy for her to play by the world’s rules, and she doesn’t quite “get” why other people struggle more than she does.
But don’t worry, I won’t leave Felicity as a two-dimensional character forever. There hasn’t been much opportunity yet to explore her personality, but just wait, faithful readers. Just wait.
So maybe Lex’s night isn’t turning into a total dumpster fire after all.
Have you ever had a clever friend do you a favor to give you some alone time with your crush? I’ve been on the receiving end and the giving end of this phenomenon. Matchmakers of the world unite!
One of the things I like about writing the On Campus comic is that I get to spend a fair amount of time poking fun at my own anxiety. Lex’s face in these panels is a rough approximation of my face when I’m all wound up about nothing.
Anxiety can really be a jerk. Sometimes it’s reassuring to make it funny instead.
What makes YOU have this kind of face?
Can other creatives relate to that moment when you’re working on a project, you have the materials spread around you, and the bed you’re sitting on becomes the whole world? Nothing outside of that exists. That’s a good feeling. (Maybe less so when doing homework…)
Or maybe your creative raft away from the world isn’t your bed, but a desk, a couch, a dining room table. Most of the time, mine is the long end of my sectional. Tell me where you do your best focus work!
