A pretty basic page after a lot of action. It was nice to just think of things in small beats again for a minute. I still dig the sleepy smiles on all the injured guests. I kind of regret that Julie's "goodnight" balloon isn't smaller or more in the background - it makes it seem like there's about to be a conversation.

That weird feeling when it's between way past midnight and dawn and everyone's exhausted but sleepy-happy. It seems like it's always been prime time for a lot of emotional moments- or maybe I'm just missing those times when the party would be winding down in the company of friends.
