Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Nancy is wearing a clean white party dress, standing in her living room, talking to Aunt Fritzi}
Nancy: I'm ready for Suzie's party!
Fritzi: Have fun.
Caption text: LATER
{Nancy enters her house. A large blotch is on the front of her dress.}
Nancy: Aunt Fritzi --- I beat Suzie.
Fritzi: {from the other room} Good for you, Nancy.
Nancy: {with an evil grin} Heh heh heh

The author writes:

I've made most of the Nancy strips I plan on making, but I've got a few left in me. I'll be spreading them out more, though, so as to avoid another 403 situation. Although... if someone did make another strip as funny as that one was to me, I might prefer that outcome... hmm.

This one ended up being a lot more involved than I initially had in mind. I was just going to remove the first and fourth panels of the 08-29 strip, then change the dialogue, then add in a new third panel of her walking away, pleased with herself. When searching for a suitable third panel, I stumbled across the 11-15 strip, which fit so well with the idea that I decided to expand the strip out. Then I found the perfect evil grin in the 09-07 strip, which I think adds a lot to the strip.

Anyway, I'm quite pleased with how this turned out, it was worth the effort. ^_^
