See, more setting up!  I am using my removal of Amber (and Mike, sure) from Shortpacked! to push this Leslie story along.  Leslie (and Robin) get to stay in Shortpacked!, because 1) they didn’t/don’t have as large roles in Dumbing of Age, so I had the mental space to keep them here, and 2) Leslie had kind of worked herself into the backbone of the strip.  She was a random addition that’d become its heart.  And, of course, Robin has to stay because she thrives in this farcical environment way more than the more down-to-earth Dumbiverse.

But, oh no, Amber might take Robin with her to Denver!  OH NO!  LESLIE NEEDS TO MAKE UP AND GET BACK TOGETHER WITH ROBIN!!!!  CAN LESLIE TURN THIS AROUND????
