Gabriola is the name of the font Lexi speaks in. Gabriel is one of the archangels. It was chosen pretty deliberately. Lexi is an angel.

I posted the last frame to the facebook page after I coloured it. In honour of my angels - MshFsh, Elefish, and Volandra. They've saved me more times than I want to think about.

I asked you once...long ago...about P's font, and never knew if you answered or not.

@JaxRhapsody: It is her last name, in fact. I either answered you specifically, or had it in an author comment.

Her name is Princess Harrington.

@GreenKrog: Huh...no...the font you use for P. I know you use different fonts to give the characters their own accent, or vocal pattern/style, not all "speak" in that monotonous comic sans serif.

I had been wondering why you gave her that "voice," to me it reads as if she speaks with a valley girl...for forgeting the right word; accent.

Though I did mention that I knew a rather dykish lesbian named "P," her name is April, though.

@JaxRhapsody: I'm confused as to what you want. As I said above, her font is also her last name. Her last name is Harrington. The font is Harrington.

Her font was picked the same way I picked everyone's fonts - by randomly looking on the list that photoshop comes come. If it is italic, I use it for a girl. If it is not, I use it for a boy. The only people with delibrate font choices are Tony, Annie, and Mr Stronarch.

As for accents, nobody got a specific accent except for the black nurse in the hospital and Zora, who is from the south. Valerie sort of has an accent which was intended to be valley-girl ish.

Tony's font being comic sans was very deliberate - it is either the most or second most hated font on the internet, Papyrus being the other. So moving off of comic sans and in to a real font was to signify a much larger shift than simply putting an italic on something.

You probably werent there right at the beginning, but I did have everyone except Tony using Times New Roman. I was highlighting the bubble with different colours to show who was talking. It was really quite bad. The more I wrote, the more I realized that characters offscreen/on the phone needed their own accent. So thats how it came about.

Is this thorough answering or did I still miss your point?
