HAHAHA! And BAM, school election fight OVAH.

I love that this twist happens. When I first read the original manuscript for Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong (which at the time was called Voted Most Likely) I assumed that the entire story would be the story of the school election. But nnnooo, Prudence had a twist up her sleeve, and the real meat of the story is about to begin.

Enjoyyyy. ;)




This could not have gone any better! I love it when creators totally alter the plot halfway through their narrative, like how Holmes and Watson died to Moriarty’s bomb at the end of season 1 of BBC’s Sherlock and season 2 was just Lestrade going on a booze-fueled off-the-books vendetta against the critically-injured but still dangerous Moriarty.

Oh, wait. That didn’t happen. But I’m glad we got a Halfway Plot Switch here! I can’t wait to see what you do next.

I love this twist! They really didn’t deserve funding after that behavior. I’m glad the cheerleaders admitted that poor Charlie had nothing to do with it. I can’t wait to see where the story goes from here. ^^

P.S. I really love the way you do facial expressions.

wow, that was a sonic BOOM wasn’t it. Broke windows and everything. Hee.

I’m sensing a lesson from Sesame Street in “cooperation” that will get them both their funding. But we’ll see.

Wow, I did not expect that and yet it is a perfectly logical twist. It’s actually refreshing to see the principal see what is happening and just put her foot down. Really curious how it will proceed from here.

I agree, it’s a great twist and really refreshing from the kind of cliched school election/popularity contest that usually comes with stories about high schools. Hat’s off to Principal Getty (and Prudence Shen) for taking care of business! Faith, I love how you drew them in the last panel.
