The lighting looks good though!

Also Anna's response is perfection.

Thank you! It's a little fiddly though... XD

Anna knows him well enough to be truly afraid...

Fire and drunks, fire and drunks... I know it doesn't always go bad, or even particularly often. That said, I make a point of separating drunks who consume things more flammable than beer, and their poison, from absolutely all sources of flame. I do this because of a past, traumatic, incident.

The bottle was good stuff, it shouldn't have been wasted as a momentary incendiary trick. If you just want to make a big fireball use some gasoline or rubbing alcohol, damn it all.

Yyeeah fire and drunks are never a good combination, I don't blame you.

Huh, so ditching your brother is the same as match maker?

...

Actually it sounds much better than half the shit you see in sitcoms.

Seth being a matchmaker would probably be one of the more horrifying things ever...as Anna seems to be picturing in her head in the last panel there. XD

I love how equally awkward Seth and Karen are here :)

And I feel like Anna will be more afraid if Seth's plan actually works!

Seth is a social animal, but is astonishingly bad at first impressions. I think Karen is just flustered.

Ha, yeah, I tend to change it on a whim! I also wanted to attempt to draw my current weird haircut.
