First: sorry this posted late. I didn't get the page until first thing this morning, and just as I was sitting down to do the update, I got word that my grandmother's brother, who has been in the hospital these last two weeks, was failing. We rushed to the hospital, but it takes nearly an hour and a half each way, and for all purposes it was too late when we got the phone call. We've spent the rest of the day beginning the arrangements for the funeral.

Second, there's a gag here which just did not work out- poor scripting on my part. I had intended the sign to be like 2001, except the 1 was replaced with a solid black ice cream cone. Ben and I will discuss whether or not to go back and catch that. As for the marquee, that came from something Ben forwarded to me.

Finally, after seeing the art, it clicked on me: yes, Butch is going to suffer some consequences for this. But first other things are going to happen. Think of this as domino #1, or possibly step A in a Rube Goldberg device.

...Oh dear, are we going to do the "transforms whenever she sneezes" shtick?

Also, it seems like Butch is getting stupider/more selfish/more desperate. Exposing Sarah to a werewolf hunter in public is a class A threat to Teh Secretz. Plus, it involves possible murder by proxy. Her previous plan was a bit sneakier and less dangerous.

Also also, JEAN PONY!

Also, also also, my sympathies for your great uncle.

Two possible ways it can get worse:

1) Pack finds out hunter is only there because Gus called him, making this look like a giant Hazen family conspiracy. Rest of pack is not amused.
2) Gus has plans of his own for Sarah, and angered that Butch nearly destroyed his prize decides to "punish" her.

Another thought: Lee is Gus's patsy.

If the pack knows there is a hunter in the immediate vicinity, if pack members start dying it's going to be assumed that the hunter was responsible. So Gus lures a hunter into the area, make sure everyone finds out about it (which Butch unintentionally is about to do by sparking a public brawl), and then start knocking off his rivals in the pack, making the hunter take all of the blame for it.

Not whenever, but there will be some sneezing.

By definition, werewolf hunters (at least the competent ones, not the monster-chasers like Feetlebaum and his friends) already know the Secret.

"Exposing Sarah to a werewolf hunter in public is a class A threat to Teh Secretz"

If the werewolf hunter, say, successfully slays said werewolf in public, that will leave a body and lots of witnesses to a complicated MURDER. That's the threat.

I was hoping up to this page that that was not another Butch plot to get Peter away from Sarah. I had initially assumed that the hunter's appearance was related to the call Gus made back at the end of book two, so It is really unfortunate to see Becca tossing away another chance after what she's been offered by the more caring (Dare I say maternal?), members of the pack, primarily Jean's mother.

However, the writer and the artist are very skilled at bringing the humor out of such a situation instead of wallowing in drama, so I have not given up hope ^_^

Oh, we've been bouncing ideas back & forth on humor for a while now. And I've been listening a lot to the Adam Carolla podcast.

I guess this will need to be resolved with an arranged marriage. Rebecca Cramer and Werewolf Hunter Lee Stebbins. :mrgreen:
