We've finally seen the last of the checked shirt DX There's nothing good about this page ): For one thing it reveals my first and hopefully my last plot hole. Jason does not actually have a locker, I used the top right panel as a getaway from the fact that jason ran out without his bag and coat. I couldn't have him sneak back in to get it, hence the locker.

I fail miserably on this occasion...

SO! to distract you all from my appalling self pimping skills; I'd thought I'd talk about... "Where the hell does the name "Fruit Machine" come from?"

Well I swear it didn't come from this: (which I really need to watch)
Or this:
Isn't that weird??!! I swear I had no idea this existed before I wrote FM. I thought of the name and I thought I'd better google it to make sure there wasn't a story already called "Fruit Machine", and this came up! O_O The world works in mysterious ways.

Anyway the real inspiration for the name was the Ting Tings song "Fruit Machine" If you listen to the lyrics you may even find some clues about the plot... ;D
Have listen to it if you haven't already:

Thank you as always for the fab comments guys! They mean a lot.

XD ahhh I've made this kind of mistake so many times! Theres way too much to remember in comics XD You'll figure out ways to get over that after a while :P

Oooh I love it when titles/stories are based from songs, so many of mine have been loosely inspired by songs too ^^

So that's where the name came from...
I was way off..

I'm gonna go listen to the song now and see what I can come up with, until then I'll be hoping for the next page.
