- Sorry for the wait on this.
Funnily enough this arc was only going to be three long pages originally, which is why I wanted to get them all done pretty quickly, but as soon as I actually drafted it properly it ended up much longer. I wanted to be able to get the pages uploaded pretty close to eachother so that people dont have to wait an entire week between each one, but that isnt possible when I work full time.

Some fun facts:
-please google 'sydney botanical gardens satyr' if you want to see that actual real statue. I thought it would be funnier to just not explain that whatsoever to leave the readers with the exact same sense of 'what the HELL is that' that I had when I first encountered it out of nowhere without expecting to, but it is an actual statue of the smuggest satyr I have seen in my life, and Syd wouldn't be too flattered to be compared to it, even if Mel is joking.
-Both the crane game and the photo booth stuff would have happened in the area around the Capitol Theatre where there is a whole load of the things. The original draft had Mel getting angry at the obscene markup Sydney charges for using the photo booth machines - the same machines that are 400 yen in Japan will cost you $12AU+ there.
-The sunset view is from Observatory Hill.

Mel is super adorable in this. You can really see how he is starting to let himself relax as time goes on, even though he's still somewhat wary.
Also, the satyr comparison amuses me intensely, 10/10. I keep grinning whenever I think about it.

@Lora: unfortunately they've actually gotten worse, I also don't have time to draw backgrounds anymore so have to incorporate free-use photos.

Smug as that satyr is it's still not the worst statue Mel could be comparing Syd to. What about Il Porcellino outside Sydney Hospital? I doubt Syd would appreciate being compared to a pig, even one that will bring you luck.
