That is one happy Alis.

Well, she has only fantasized about this for a while!

She did throw herself ass-first!

Sean's about to wreck this poor girl.

Sean looks uncomfortable in panel 3. Is she uncomfortable about the whole situation now, or just physically uncomfortable with Alis ramming into her?

This entire evening has been new territory, it's not surprising if she isn't entirely on board, 100%, all the time.

Sides, Alis has a bony butt.

I'm wondering the same thing, and whether the slow movement of her hand is due to more teasing or her discomfort
Susu edit delete reply
She's just learning, it's okay to take your time with new experiences.
Sheela edit delete reply
I think it's more a case of "incoming Alis", rather than a "this is uncofortable" kinda face, that sean is pulling in Panel 3.

Yeah, felt like she was more adjusting her position and the like from Alis smooshing her than 'I dislike this.' momentary discomfort.

Boy am I glad I didn't speculate last page, I would've gone off in the wrong direction! At least in actions, if not emotions.

This page reminds me a lot of when I was first handed a guitar. I set it on my lap and just plucked strings; not in order to 'play' it, but to learn how it worked, what strings did what, what holding it here or there did, etc.

Sean's focus in the last panel and her care in pressing into and exploring Alis in the prior ones strikes me as something very similar; getting to know her new toy. The paneling in general here is nice, the swaps between the hands creating a good feeling of quiet, slightly slow exploration that Alis probably takes as teasing.

I suppose Sean'd thought to use the wand to do that before, as Alis'd indicated use, but has gone to a more...overall appreciation. I think it's worthwhile noting the wand is still by her side, though.

I also really like the shading here, giving a sense of the pressure Sean's exerting with her strong fingers, and the shading of her own skin, the lightness on her fingers from the exertion. Expression-wise, I'm liking that for as taken with it and as happy as Alis is, we're getting a completely different vibe from Sean, one where she's very focused on doing things in the moment and cerebral.

I also find it interesting Alis' eyes are coloured blue while Sean's remain in grey. It's not down to wetness I don't think, but perhaps more of...perspective, or due to the mood. I think it's something Sean takes notice of a lot at certain moments (I'm reminded of 'You don't need an excuse' from a lot of pages back) that is being pointed out to us too.

Overall, very nice, as it shows Sean's consideration off well- her look from the prior page more obviously being a displeasure with the idea of going to fetch a towel and have a barrier between her explorations and Alis' reactions than I'd previously taken it. It'll be nice to see exactly what it is Sean's fingers have been twitching to do down there!

Last page? You mean the "z" sketch?
TDL edit delete reply
Both. Though I may have given slight speculation on the last page.

That last panel. Their eyes are so beautifully drawn and expressive.
