In stark contrast to the last character introduced, this is the OLDEST member of the DotX cast thus far! (Not including the Pirate.) (...Also not including the Demon, whose age is unknown.)

At one point while drawing this page, I had drawn Frisky's head and body on separately, and when I put them together they were wildly different sizes! She looked like a bobble-head.
I texted Heartless about this, and she told me that I should mention it in my author note for this page. "You know what?" I replied, "Watch me. I will." "Good," she typed back, "I fully expect it." I told her I was going to summarize our entire conversation and put it in the author note, and asked if she had anything she'd like to say to all you reading this.

She says "Hi!" AND she instructed me to add a wave in along with her greeting because, and these are her words not mine, she was feeling 'spicy'.

This conversation was weeks ago because I make these pages in advance. You forgot all about this, didn't you, Heartless? Didn't think I'd really go through with it, did you!?

...This is all very silly.

Raspberry (her name is Raspberry, I'm guessing) seems like a player. One can only hope she doesn't end up intervening in other people's relationships.
Nice work on Raspberry's character design! I really like the colors of her hair. Actually, they're kind of making me hungry...

I wonder how Frisky knows most of these people...

Darth Escar: I was actually wondering the same thing! There are so many new characters suddenly, but they're not just coming out of nowhere, Frisky obviously knows all of them from somewhere in her life!

Ah yes! That's the exact wording I was looking for.

Thank you! : )

Believe it or not her name actually ISN'T Raspberry! That might actually be a better name for her though, in retrospect... The title of this page is simply referring to her hair color. Her name IS that of another food though, so you getting hungry feels appropriate!


That's fantastic!! I really hope at least one person sees that and comes to check out DotX expecting a post-apocalyptic story. :P
Love that lighting!

That's a great question! A question that I can't answer right now! This chapter will actually delve into that topic a bit, and after it's over I'll be happy to clear anything up that hasn't been already! Maybe I'll post a chart showing who knows who and from where. I promise I've thought it all through, even though I'm really giving you no answer here!

Basically! That's really just the short answer to what I said up above! The details'll be told later.

Nice avatar!
