I started talking with my pals about this and uh

Q:What cultural influences did you draw upon for your culture's general clothing standards? The Qenotese designs seem rather Spanish, especially noticeable (at least to me) in its women's fashions, while the Enorans look like they drew influence from somewhere in or around India, but I could be horribly wrong in my guesses.
Ok uhhhh let’s see… I’ll just list what’s in my inspiration folders for each culture.
Enoran: 1/3 Traditional Punjabi clothing, 1/3 paintings from the Mughal Empire, the rest Tajik and Thai
Qenotese: 1/4th Peruvian, 1/4th Spanish, 1/2 Mexican
Deotian: 1/2 Belarusian, 1/2 Norwegian, a smattering of Uzbek and Turkish clothing
Mailkenite: 1/2 Circassian(Adyghe), 1/4 Turkmen, 1/4 Yoruk
And that’s just for this continent weeee
Q:I seem to remember you saying once that you'd do an annotated version of the comic with pages having the Miasmaska Effect when the chapter was done (or for rpint? or something... I can't find the ask now but are you still planning on doing that so we can read all the underlying meanings and stuff Meora, etc say?
I remember that vaguely too… I think it was in the comments section and not an ask, so that’s probably why you can’t find it.
I still plan on doing an annotated version but not until a certain part of the story passes (about halfway through chapter 6). There is a particular reveal that is foreshadowed in one of the effects, and despite it being a relatively minor reveal, there has been discussion surrounding it in the comments and I kinda don’t wanna just stifle all that by plainly explaining it. Reading speculations is honestly my favorite pastime right now B—)
And I know for a fact that at least one person figured out the reveal from one hidden line of text— so this isn’t just me being mildly paranoid haha. Miraculously, he hasn’t spoiled it for everyone. That probably will end with me saying that, though.
Q:I love how all your characters have depth and reasons behind their actions, and just all seem /genuine/. It's great and I'm excited to see hoe everything turns out in both your comics. Also Trosce is my baby. I want to bake his pouty face scones and pronounce his name correctly so he can be all 'fine i'll be HAPPY.' Sorry - now I'm just fangirling in your ask.
Glad you’re enjoying both comics so far!!! Here’s a happy Trosce for your fangirling.
