So here we have Part 2! This strip was longer than the ones I draw now, and I couldn’t have all the build-up I wanted if I cut it into 4 panels. So that was why I decided to cut it into 2 parts for these strips! I particularly like Chapel’s expressions here, especially in the 3rd panel. And Chibi Chapel at the end wrapping up her story gets me every time! That was a detail I didn’t have in the original strip, so I’m glad I could add it.

For Season Two, I wanted to create a game room where Chapel and Fred play their games and Chapel engages in her flights of fancy. I decided on an old-fashioned room with wood paneling and I imagine it’s full of games like the darts on the wall.

The title of this strip is in reference to the song The Gambler by Kenny Rogers. I Googled it and found cool references to The Muppets, David Tennant in Blackpool, and Alvin and the Chipmunks, but none of those are as cool as my mom telling me that during my dad’s years at Apple, when he had a beard, some people would ask him, “hey, are you Kenny Rogers?”
I notice the "Keep Calm and Scrabble On" poster. Emma, how are you so impossibly awesome?

Also, I have a song about gambling that I know and love, called "Shape of My Heart" by Sting.

... where I live a full house (which needs 5 cards, after all) beats four aces.

Hmm, really? Every guidebook I've ever read, four aces beats a full house easily...

I wouldn't want Fred to babysit me either......

All he'd do would be beat you at poker!

Lovin' this. I think it was Girl Genius that lead me here, though I am a Modest Medusa fan as well as some of the others here. Keep up the good work.

I learned the word Chibi from the front woman of "The Birthday Massacre" Fun times. :) Last time I got a full house in poker I got hosed as well. Chapel is like my weird alter poker ego.

I love your work! So much fun. :D

Oh, I actually like and listen to the "Birthday Massacre!" Well, I have only heard a couple of their songs, but I like it!

Thank you so much!

The expression in panel three is the best. I love it!
Miss L.S.P 12/5/11
Thanks so much!
