I wish I had left more room for the dialogue in panels 2 and 3. When laying out this page, I thought I’d be clever by repeating the exact same five panels for the top and bottom halves, as Cass and Flint’s stories begin winding down and syncing up. But Cass’ portion was much wordier and that landed me in trouble.

This is either Flint’s first or second grounding in the series, depending on how you look at it. His first “grounding” was literal, back when his membranes weren’t large enough to support him in flight. Now he’s getting the traditional version…which includes the same punishment, incidentally.
