OHMYGOD I remember when midnight was 'late' XD. Now it's like, two in the morning is 'a little late'. Hah.
First page of "The Muse and I", the story behind Nikki and her androgynous elf muse. Y'know, there's something to be said about the girl/guy-ness of the muse, and the fact that he came out of the closet, to relate to my own (and the current dreadlocked Nikki's) bisexuality, which was only recently realized. I was selectively homophobic in high school ... I had no problem if someone else was gay, but there was no way in hell I would ever have believed it of myself. I think I was aware of the metaphors here even then, but dismissed them. Oh snap.
