I apologize for alluding to the existence of an interesting character, setting it up in a way that suggests a future entertaining interaction with the protagonist, revealing that this character showed up to her professional photo shoot ready for Vogue and decided to glower at the camera like a Disney villain—can you even call it a look if your lipstick doesn’t match your hair beads? Again, this is for the head shot displayed in the foyer of the business she owned—and entangling this reveal with a shot of the maintenance lady taking down her photo.

I’ll let you know when I figure out how to deal with this emotionally.

For your sake and mine, Althea’s first appearance is going to be way earlier than I planned.

(don’t worry about the names, this took forever b/c I had to design 9 new characters, but I’ll do the work for you)
