Hoo boy...you know I hope that this works out for them, but there are so many "in love with love" alarm bells going off in my head right now.

So we're happy to finally be getting to this point in the comic, here are some fun-facts about this plot-point

-Originally this would've been far later in the comic, but approaching nearly 5 years of being online and not yet having a new relationship (that wasn't side characters, sorry Leon/Gwen!)
-Sesame would've been too nervous to ask and beat around the bush, but we wanted to avoid the tease to get to the meat of things
-Mason was going to be WAY more oblivious to her advances and about relationships in general, including a line 'I can't kiss you, I don't want to get you pregnant!' highlighting his very childish viewpoint on things (and probably what his Uncle told him) again - this just seemed maybe a bit too extreme so we ditched it.
-First draft ever ; Sesame would've never confessed her crush.

Interesting changes but I'm kinda glad you did this now. This moment in the comic is a golden opportunity for Sesame to finally talk to Mason alone about how she feels towards him. Doing this now addressed an issue you all obviously wanted addressed as well as made a lot of the fans happy. I'm also glad you decided to have her just blurt it out rather than being all super nervous about it, goes along well with her headstrong personality. I can also appreciate Mason being pretty oblivious/ignorant about relationships in general due to his sheltered upbringing and abuse from his uncle. I could also see his uncle deliberately putting some wrong notions in Mason's head about women, doing it as a way of keeping Mason from running off with some girl and staying under his thumb.

These revisions did bring up a stray thought about a previous moment in the comic. Back during the first Uber dream we saw several different alternate versions of Sesame. Were some/all of these alts different ideas you had for developing her character when you first started coming up with this comic? Ideas that maybe got tossed aside or altered to bring us this present version of Sesame?

I can't say *too much* on the different versions of Sesame (major spoilers but hopefully its not too cryptic to put together) she saw in her dream, but they were not original designs or ideas. She hasn't really changed *too* much since her inception design wise.. although she used to have brown braided pigtails! Thaaaaat didn't last long lol - then some very long Hatsune Miku inspired twin tails but that got ditched too.

I think Amp will appreciate your decision to ditch the pig tails! :) I guees I'll have to go back and look at those comics to see if I can figure some things out.
