This was some really fun Aaron dialogue to write.
ALSO! I love this storyline, but it has a weird genesis. Part of it was just that I liked the idea of a band trip to help cheer Dan up; but the other half was that I was increasingly not comfortable with the realization that, without thinking, I had established that Dan was dating a smart woman with red bobbed hair named Miranda. Not comfortable with the surprise of having written Sex and the City fan fiction, I tried to write Miranda out of the strip. It didn’t take, over the long haul, but she does have very non-Cynthia Nixon hair when she comes back.
