I really like the pacing of the dialogue on this page-- it's always good imo but this page stood out as really natural to me. Yay for school being over! 1 more week for me (though as a teacher it's never *really* over lol)

@Rara Avis: Judging by the first incarnation of this comic, you have nothing to worry about. She's building relationships first. Be patient!

:C This is sad.

I'm a little confused by the line "His brother wouldn't been bartered him away" though... is it too early in the morning for me, or is there a typo?

@Kara, @Kit Sorry I have to butt in here but I have what I consider some knowledge on this topic. Apologies in advance

First of all, yes, synesthesia is a thing, it's when two or more senses overlap or combine, such as "smelling colors". It's absolutely something that some brains do. However--

What Kara is talking about (like grass smelling green) is something, I think, universal to the human experience. We associate a lot of things (emotions, scents, temperature, concepts) to colors, and we seem to do so innately. (I mean, really, associating the smell of grass with the color green, which grass is, isn't that big of a cognitive leap; I don't think you could pull a diagnosis of synesthesia from that.)

This is a bit of an aside, but-- the whole study of color psychology deals with associations we attach to colors, and it's fascinating. We seem to all agree that red, orange, and yellow are 'warm' colors, for example-- they "feel" warm, and looking at a picture of only these colors certainly has the psychological effect of warmth or heat. Our brains pick out the color yellow first before any other color (this is why the lines in the middle of the road are yellow). Some associations are cultural-- like wearing white on your wedding day in America to represent purity, while you wear white to a funeral in Japan-- but associations, whatever they may be, seem inevitable in the human experience.

Taking a step back from that deep philosophical conversation; many companies that artificially flavor their food do so in very broad trends, i.e. red = cherry, purple = grape; and these very flavors are so synthesized that they barely taste like the fruit they're based on. And I mean, when's the last time you saw a blue raspberry (often the flavor name given to something blue)?

In essence, calling a flavor 'blue' instead of 'berry' is more honest and accurate. And I would be surprised to find someone that doesn't automatically know what Dake means when he calls the flavor blue. I know I can recall the taste of 'blue' flavor without a problem.
Tommy please find another color in your wardrobe you look like a malnourished silhouette babe lol
