Ooh, Tempus baited you good with that fake leaving thing Hieros.
If some of you were wondering just how my sister Zimeta was involved in writing this story: To keep Hieros as in-character as possible, I'd ask her constantly if the lines I was giving him were good (sometimes she would adjust them, sometimes I got it dead-on), and I simply asked how Hieros would reply to something Tempus had said. So, I'd say at least 80-90% of Hieros' lines were given to me and/or adjusted by my sister.
In addition to that, she helped steer the conversation as well as the story. So this mini-comic really is more or less a 50-50 collaboration.
