@blueshark: Are you back in high school and your Calculus teacher asks you to define something in the middle of class?? ;)
I'll re-letter panel two for print. For what it's worth, the text says:

@unwittingcornpls @JackRubyCoverup
If C.B. and the other Empaths just did a bad job closing breaches, wouldn't there be remnants of "them" that could still be volatile?

@DuanSevy
LOL.

@DuanSevy @JackRubyCoverup
You're saying adduction isn't real?

@uniwttingacornpls @DuanSevy
Narc.
I know it's a bit illegible -- the last two lines of forum text on Kappy's phone should read "the motive isn't what we think or need."
@LJ: haha, oops. Noted & thank you!
@randnum: Thanks! Thought it was about time I harkened back to the ch1 intro pages ;)
Page 15 posting on the 15th? That's gotta be lucky~

If you celebrate Christmas, this is the last week I'll probably be able to mail out anything from my shop in time for your holiday gift~

I have print copies of chapters 1-5 of this comic, some rad lenticular prints (both for this comic, and some Utena and Marvel comics fanart ones!), and various high-quality art prints on lovely textured stocks!

Happy Birthday!
I don't know if you read this comic, but if you do, happy birthday to my little brother!
@guest: It was! Thanks!
@dzai: Haha~ Thank you!
@blueshark: Thank you!

That scene hasn't been shown explicitly yet (it will, though!), but there've been some other glimpses that may help: http://fst.smackjeeves.com/comics/2484973/31/
@IronDog: Thank you! That'd be a good birthday present to me -- my characters getting along <3
It's my birthday tomorrow! I'm not doing anything special with the comic this year because I'm traveling >_>
*wipes sweat off brow* That's it for the colors this chapter! I think all those color palette ask drawings really made a difference, so thanks to those of you who read on Tumblr who chimed in with requests!
@ZenPanda: Thanks! She's one of my favorite designs. It's fun to do the family members of the main characters -- riffing off their facial features but changing them slightly. I'm not sure if facial expressions are more learned or inherited, but either way, she definitely passed down the bitchy glare to Day haha
@dzai: Thanks! Yeah, it took me up until, like, ch4 to really lock down what he looks like!
@Auldr: Thanks! Yeah, I never played baseball as a kid, so it took a bit to familiarize myself with the game enough to portray it (hopefully) believably
@guest: Heh, yeah, it's a fun challenge to use the cover art to try and capture a bit of the personality of the character as well as hint at what's to come in the chapter.
Look what I found:
