I was actually, and I don't really know why, a little bit surprised at how many people figured out it was a smoke bomb from the last page XD. I mean, I know it's by no means original, but still. Actually, this wasn't even in the original script for the chapter. Originally, Luna was going to turn around and Lunos just be gone...but then I realized that that was probably not possible. So, at risk of being cliche, I gave him a slightly more realistic escape opportunity. ^^; Emphasis on slightly.
Anyway. Thankfully, that's the last we'll be seeing of Lunos for awhile. I actually just wrote him back into the story a few chapters ago, but just for a small scene. And my script is way, WAY ahead of the actual comic. I think I'm writing chapter...21? Something like that. Yeah, this isn't a short story by any means. More on that later.
Anywho. Chapter's almost over; 3 more pages. So if I keep up this rate, chapter should be finished on Sunday. And then I can take a break XD. So, see you tomorrow.
Yeah, you're right, having Luna turn around and Lunos disappear while she's turning around wouldn't work.. can Lunos even move that fast?
Trite ploy, yes, but effective here... I get tired of some comics that overuse that ploy to the point that it's all meh, another smoke screen?! I love the fact that you try to avoid those cliches, but admit to using them when you can't. XD
Anyway, I'm enjoying this chapter so far, but wow... 22?
