I definitely put Crow and Sho together just for that "Power Hour" line. What can I say? I'm a hack!
The big conspiracy was something I managed to put together using elements I'd set up in previous rounds, but it was never a cohesive picture until this round. I'd like to claim I had everything planned out, but I always liked to keep tournament entries fast and loose, because if you commit yourself to a story you might never get to tell its ending if you go out before the tournament's end. Take Sho, for example - in his rounds there was a sexy pink Doonlup trying to have him offed, and we never got to find out why! I got to provide a reason instead.
You know, I kinda wish I'd drawn Ralph dressed as some sort of god-king-emperor in his colour panel. Hindsight's a bitch.
This is also the point in the story where Mister feels useless without his magic and requires all the hugs. Because he is currently the Woobie.
