Thistle's dialogue in the fourth panel is a reference to the entirety of Chapter 9.
Did you also catch how Chapter 10's cover is an embarrassing childhood photo of Deer Friend?
It's wild to admit, but we're almost through the entirety of our buffer that we made while on that forced hiatus. I've been busy with a lot of things, like dealing with Etsy shutting down my shop for a trivial reason and then stonewalling me, setting up a new shop on my website, and the usual full time job obligations - so this buffer has been a godsend in these times.
Anyway, I've got to get back to it! Thank you all so much for reading. I hope you're having fun. :)
