cameo?

Well isn't that shopworker just adorable?

I wanted to give a shot at drawing more diverse characters. So with that in mind I designed the shopworker.

Turns out I accidentally made a carbon copy of my boyfriend. I didn't even notice it untill he pointed it out himself.
I think I'm still secretly obsessed with him, even after 3 years of dating.

Q&A

Since there didn't appear to much interest in the idea of an ask blog on Tumblr, I thought I'd throw out the idea of running a Q&A that will be posted here at the end of Chapter 4. So, from now until the day page 25 (the second to last page of this chapter) goes up, you can all send in your questions to the cast by commenting here on this site.

No guarantee all questions will be answered. It depends on how many questions we get, and how many pages worth of answers we want to have. Still, feel free to send your questions in anyway, because your question might get picked! Nothing spoilery will be answered, though.

The abilities of the Five-Headed Dragon and the name of one of the legendary dragons (Tiamat)? Nice!

As for questions... How dark can we expect this to get? Can we expect to see Alexis be forced to endure any transphobia or homophobia? How would she likely handle it if she had to, even if she won't be?

@TallMist: Yeap. In the original first chapter of The Changing Stone (back when it had its name "The Book of Change"), the main characters went to a store and found a booster pack (just like Alexis here did) containing the Five-Headed Dragon from Yu-Gi-Oh. The scene has been rewritten over and over, with the newest version of Changing Stone completely scrapping the whole idea altogether. So, since this and CS occur in the same universe, I thought I'd give Alexis the same scene, but changed up a bit to avoid obvious copyright reasons and to introduce my own TCG.

Also, you'll notice her effect is similar to the original Winged Dragon of Ra where her power was equal to the things used to summon her. The fact "nerf" she received was me making fun of the horrendous nerf that Ra got (though they solved that by releasing the new Sphere Mode card, which makes Ra freaking OP as fuck, like holy shit!)
