My original comic draft called for a scene where Sliver walks in on Dorioth kissing another girl, followed by a rather hurtful exchange of words. However, I felt that the scene was too clichéd, and made Dorioth look like a huge douchebag. While he did lead her on (which was a douchebag thing to do), they were somewhat drunk during their hotel romance (note near-empty wine bottle on page 12 of Ch 2). This implied that the romantic moment may not have been 100% sincere.
I also thought it’d be more meaningful to have Dorioth reminisce about their friendship.
