I know, my "epilogues" are often misnomers, and rather show things that are tangents to the chapter's main plot, but didn't really fit in.
Which is the case here too - the initial idea here was the last panel, and I just thought this might be a good opportunity to put it into the comic...

In a week, right at the beginning of February, we'll continue with a spanking new chapter!

Just objects? Or people?

Could be a bit abused, that power.

You mean that she can see how people she is watching will appear (or what they will do) in the future? Or even people who are not present at her location right now, but will be? (And who might not even have been born yet?)
To all I say: Sure, why not!?

As for abusing this power, I'd say that it's working a bit too unreliably random to use it in a "targeted" way. Meaning she has visions of the future, but can't control when they appear.

Hehehe! "We're all completely normal." *pans over to lady with glowing eyes*

Well, Keisha did say that Isabelle is the exception! ;-)
But yes, that's exactly the comedic effect I was aiming for! :-D
Cooke edit delete reply
Yep, that's just a revelation you casually drop in conversation! XD

"Please tell me a bit about you", can be such a tough question, can you blame Keisha for answering with the first thing that came to her mind? ;-D

After what I saw in the previous page, what if she can predict Tarik's future?
Microraptor edit delete reply
Isabelle: "I foresee... An attractive, very athletic woman will enter your life..." ;-)

(Tarik: "Phew, for a moment there, I misheard this as 'end your life'...)

She could honestly tell Tarik that he'll be ... chased by a French chick. :P

Haha, yep! :-D Unfortunately for him, it's not Babette!

(Even though I didn't envision Umami to be of any nationality in particular - but there is no reason for her not to be French, and given that her hideout is France, it would make sense too... Let's just say that's canon now! ;-) )

Mwahahaha poor Issette! I hope she never has gone to Stalingrad...
Microraptor edit delete reply
Ugh, that would be outright traumatizing!

Come to think of it, both World Wars have littered Europe and the world with a lot of places (or will litter, from her perspective) that Issette should better avoid...

We're all basically completely normal people...well, except for the girl at the end of the table with the glowing eyes who can see the future. :D

I like the Eiffel Tower bit in the last panel too!
Microraptor edit delete reply
Well, Keisha did point out that said lady is the exception to her statement! :-D

Also, glad to hear that the last panel at least works as intended!
(The sizes of people & tower in relation to each other are certainly off, and in general, city landscapes are not my strength.)
