Y'know, for all the talk of Sandra and Marid switching bust sizes, we haven't actually seen any art to indicate that Sandra now has Marid's cup size.

I assume we will in the next Strip?

Look at the last panel. There's one line in the art that hints at how big her (currently squished) breast is.

I'm pretty sure she can't put her elbows together right now.

Yeah... about that.... I'm a bit concerned on how she'd be acting at this point. IF she was wearing a bra before hand, that thing would suddenly be trying to hold back at least twice the volume now. Imagine if you will, even in looser fitting pants, suddenly gaining twice your weight and your sudden reaction to being trapped in your own clothes as they dig in and possibly cut into you. Despair doesn't sound like the immediate go to emotionally. Should be more of sheer panic and pain I would think.

@Cortanis

If you look at earlier pages, you can see Sandra not having bra straps. True, she may have worn strapless. Who knows?

I suspect the wish magic would have resized her clothes enough that they wouldn't actually hurt her. If she had a bra it's bigger now.

It might still be undersized but not so undersized it's painful, that's my theory. Just undersized enough to underscore the lesson.

Maybe. Maybe not. But the size is there.~

How will she respond to the news that it’s a 24 hour thing?

I suspect it’ll be worse if she finds out after she leaves the building?

Depends entirely on when she finds out XD With Sandra you need to pick your moments carefully.

Suddenly, I like Sandra a whole lot more than before. She at least realizes she was acting poorly, and I'm sympathetic to how she feels right now.

Not to say she's perfect... but then again, who is? (Not RJ, that's for sure.)

Hahaha RJ is far from perfect! I agree!

But I love my characters for their flaws. Flaws make them relatable and flaws are the real key points that tell the story as the characters develop!

Also I'm glad to hear you like Sandra a bit more now! She is not suppose to be liked yet, but with the story moving on, you never know how things will develop with her :)

Shame that shame tends to be felt too late to be useful, if at all by those who would most be improved by being more sensitive to it. See, right here, Cassandra should be feeling ashamed of being this obnoxiously melodramatic over a little embarrassment she earned fair and square. But no, the shame she should feel about that is not stopping her from making stupid statements about becoming a vagrant squatter while having a home to go back to.

Oh, come on. That was obviously rueful humor... classic exaggeration. Like when a person says "Kill me now", they usually are not actually requesting death.

Gotta agree with Steveha there. Females, especially at teens, blow things out of proportions. Especially when they're embarrassed.

And reason why shame comes later is because it doesn't sink in until you've calmed down. Sandra is very impulsive person who jumps to conclusion and right now has her emotions running her behavior rather than her logical side.

Let's just be glad she felt shame at all.

@SteveHa Are you really sure that people usually don't want to be executed on the spot when they state the imperative, "Kill me now?" Also, do you have any advice on how to apologize to their next of kin if one makes that mistake? I'm asking for a friend.

@theartist I admit that there is definitely a significant number people who could improve the world by being more (appropriately?) responsive to shame. In the case of Cassandra here the shame is clearly not helping. She would be better served by getting doused with a bucket of cold water over the head to cool down her overreactions.
