I know this is very, very late, and I apologise. My goal is
to catch up by this weekend (as I'm back to a thrice-a-week
schedule...theoretically, at least). This has been a crazy, busy,
energy-draining week from hell. Also, classes start again
tomorrow (technically today, but I don't teach on Tuesdays this term).
By next Monday, I hope to be back on track.|
The results of Summer Contest #10, as well as the results of the whole string of contests together, will be posted whenever I get Monday's comic up. With luck, that will happen either very late tonight or tomorrow evening (likely tomorrow evening). I teach for six hours on Wednesdays, so there won't be all that much time to work on the comic during the day, even with the introductory classes being short ones.

|Panel 1: In
the title panel of this Sunday-style colour comic, Davies alumni Elisa
and Athar smirk at a clapboard bearing the words "West of Bathurst by
Panel 2: Elisa and Athar speak directly to the camera that is filming them.
Elisa: Hi...I'm Elisa.
Athar: And I'm Athar.
Elisa: We're Davies alumni.
Athar: Welcome to the college.
Elisa: We've actually been banned from making any more of these videos.
Athar: No one will tell us why.
Elisa: The last time someone banned us from something, we ended up at the top of the Davies bell tower with paintball guns.
Athar: And that wasn't even what we'd been banned from.
Elisa: At any rate, if you're new, you should probably fear us.
Athar: We're currently on the other side of the country, but still.
Elisa: You should also be aware that Davies is a cult.
Athar: Which is why there are robes and Latin graces. Cults like those.
Elisa: I was thinking more of that time in the quad with the Necronomicon.
Athar: Shh! They're always watching.
Elisa: Welcome to Davies, which is not evil in any way.
Athar: Don't ever eat the chicken wings.
Panel 9: Marie, Frankie, and Baldwin are watching all this on a tablet. Barbara pokes her head--and a stake--into the panel.
Frankie: They must be stopped.
Barbara: You can borrow my stake.
Alt-Text: Then there was the time we opened the Hellmouth in the library, and Willow had to do this spell--no, wait, that was an episode of _Buffy the Vampire Slayer_.
