Strip by: Nyperold

{Tiffany paints an unknown, probably unauthorized surface with depictions of Quincy (r) as the Wizard of Research, herself (l) as the Grand Master Knowledge Huntress, and Max (c) as the Arbiter of Information. They stand on rolling hills amid flowers and butterflies as the sun smiles down on them -- wait, what? AAAAAAAAAAAAA}

The author writes:

In the Group Projects arc, Ms. Monster assigned groups randomly instead of simply letting them choose who to work with. This resulted in the Sapphire Lake kids being in the same group as Copper Road kids, to varying degrees of success. The end result was that the Sapphire Lakers stopped treating the Copper Roaders as non-existent, and led to a few friendships outside the group.

The first two strips of the Break Week bit, immediately after, had aftereffects of this mixing: Bud and Kaitlyn giving each other a friendly wave and smile, and Autumn reading her Copper Road binder. The day following this one's original would feature Jacob and Suzette in jester and queen attire (respectively, of course), much as they did when working "together" on their project. Strip three, however, had Tiffany painting a picture of herself... with her same three friends!

I felt it would be good - not necessarily better - to continue the theme perhaps not intentionally hinted at by the first two. (Break Week 5-7 seem to lend credence to the idea that it wasn't intentional. Still.)
