@V: Interesting thoughts here! I'll let the future pages reveal some of those details, but as far as the name, i'll go ahead and tell you that Dr. Butterscotch is a nickname! :3

no one's a fan of their numbers [obviously] so once a nickname like Starkid, or Diva, forms, they collectively stick to that and abandon the number.

and also from a backend storytelling perspective, i feel like it would be a little tasteless to constantly hammer the numbers into readers' faces. you already know the numbers exist and how terrible they are, so, i much prefer them lurking in the background.

finally the REAL main character of the chapter is here. it's dr. butterscotch! they were supposed to talk in the last chapter but i cut all of it out, so you had to wait an extra year to confirm that the cat is in fact another kid.

@RandomEgg: Yeah! Kalo's sound powers help him tune up. He wishes there were some instruments to play around with at Croft but there aren't.... he really misses his guitar and keyboard.

kalo's not only practicing his powers, he's also rehearsing a new song!

hey, i'm trying this new thing where i make the pencils+inks of each page go public on patreon once the finished page posts here on sj. you can see the wips for this page, originally drawn a whole month ago, right here! and while you're there you can check out all the other stuff that's gone public. take a fuckign sip

@Deimos: i'm glad to hear that your stay was restful, as it's supposed to be, and i hope that you're in a better situation now.

my stay, and what i witnessed of a lot of my fellow patients, was not great, and in talking with a lot of people, you're lucky if you land in a genuinely nice facility. i don't really talk about the details because i don't want to dump a heavy load onto strangers lmao. so i let it speak through the comic instead. and you're right, the comic is a dramatization, so some of the cruelty is cranked up, but at the same time... the amount of it that has a stable base on reality is Worrisome.
