It didn't feel like the characters connected enough, so why not physically connect them? I also made it top bottom. I'll soon post some more things, because things have changed quite a bit over the past couple of days.

It looks great! I like the new direction you're taking things in... ... ... was the new writing direction taken from my one I showed you?
Is there no start to my talent? [:3]

When I don't buy snacks and they aren't sitting around, I tend not to go through the effort to go to the store just when I feel peckish.
