I was mixing a few of my thoughts on friendship into this one, even as it builds on the world of the characters. There's the continuation of this idea that Knowing rarely comes from advice, that really knowing comes from inexorable consequence. Real heads know it! I was also still exploring this idea that internet friendships aren't exactly real, that favs and RTs (and hell, cancellation) will always come from someone who's only getting a partial story. If we want to be known, we'll surround ourselves with a few good people who don't indulge our every thought. The question then is, do we want to be known? It's not easy - especially when we frame our lives a certain way, and ask leading questions. But Eve and Jane have been comrades in this fight for a while, maybe even from the instant they met.
I think I effed the gag with Marigold dusting the vase. I meant to show her snooping in on what is clearly a juicy conversation.
