Typed up from handwritten notes by: Leon Arnott

The author writes:

It may be a bit of a cliché that every webcomic in existence, no matter how "realistic" or "slice-of-life" it claims to be, invariably resorts to some small instance of magical realism or outright fantasy. These instances tend to be such well-worn and weary beings as ghosts, robots, vampires, the Grim Reaper, and time travel.

But, I feel that there are some "realistic" stories where the careful and measured injection of a very minor - and creative - magical element serves to enhance and augment the natural and realistic elements of the story.

I believe that the focus of my comic's humour is, and always will be, the characters and their relationships, and that today's introduction of a hovering telepathic female pie from the future merely provides a focal point for those relationships, and an opportunity to develop my characters further.
