He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

Tinaaaaaaaaaaaa! I'd give you my coffee order but it seems to already be on the counter ready to go. *happily drops a big tip and gives the best barista in town a huge smile*

Stinkweed has to be putting out an aura that should have Tina reading her like a neon sign...

I'm liking this look on Tina... she looks more human for some reason...

I would still love to visit that coffee shop just once.

Well, I guess that those NDA's were very broad-ranging if Castela's just casually revealing the secrets of paranormals not even involved with her training. Or else Castela's over-estimating the contracts' scope. At least Luci seems to be taking it all in stride so far, and hasn't run screaming for the police or the army.

If someone were introduced to me as a coven of demons, I think I'd back up a step or two. Luci seems to be handling it better.

Scleral. Good word to know.

I wonder how the demons keep coming up with different looks for their 'ship'. Is one of them really into fashion and wants to try out new ideas and the others just go along, or are they doing this collectively for a reason?

Her hair's grown back, and I think this is only the 2nd time we've seen her without her choker necklace!

We've seen that Tina has been evolving in a direction which may lead to her becoming more of a single being than a collective group... in Wapsi terms, a coven of demons rather than a covey. If the process continues, Tina 3.0 might be a real "she", rather than a "them".

So, it's possible that your second suggestion is true - it's a collective trend - and that "becoming more human" could be the reason (in two senses of the word... it could be both the mechanism and the motivation).

(Whether this is fully possible for Tina without undergoing a fusion with a human soul, as happened when Connie came into existence, remains to be seen. And, as Connie has Tina 1.0's soul, it's an open question where Tina would get one in order to undergo such a fusion.)

Where did the souls originally come from, though? Could Tina simply grow one from scratch? Or perhaps the story that Nadette told Castela years ago about the Fae gaining souls will come into play.

[ requisite Ego a Big Foot'n Reply]:

Man casually walks in to Mucho Mocha. He seems to be moving swiftly yet unhurriedly and as he approaches the end of the counter, finds the Barista has arraigned to meet him there, Tanzanian Peaberry, brewed strong and sweet in hand.

She passes him the java in a travel mug as he lightly embraces her, a quick nuzzle of the neck & a kiss behind the ear, he pivots back towards the door, a near inaudible sigh escaping his otherwise calm visage, a 'Love ya Babe, See ya later...' sounding both familiar yet unique follows him out the just closing door...

I wonder what (fan-fic) Stan has been up to...

Eh, she'd have figured out I was gay two minutes before I even walked in the door. Most people can't tell, but Tina would see right through me :D

I'm starting to think that eBay is accident prone: more often than not, pinups of female Wapsi characters seem to have had their airbags deployed, when compared to their normal appearance on the daily strips... :roll:

Because she's feeling a bit sheepish about the saltpeter? :)
