Shaenon: I’ve been drawing Nick piloting the Violet droid for a while now, and it’s a pleasure to finally get to draw this ridiculous development in the strip.

Also, today’s my husband Andrew’s birthday.  Everyone wish him well!

Channing:  Happy birthday, Andrew!

I gotta say, if these sketches don’t inspire someone to do some fanfic already, I figure there’s no hope of it.

Shaenon: Only if the fanfiction is about all the adorable outfits Nick could wear.
