Phil was not so sure about Frigg using her sexuality to further rattle her opponents, and for the plot, it’s not strictly necessary. But in terms of her character, I felt that Frigg would use whatever blunt instrument she could lay hands on that was likely to do the most damage.

The fact that she’s appealing to the laws of thermodynamics is the real “never thought I’d see it” moment.

Phil’s reluctance wasn’t prudishness, that much I can testify: if anything, I was the prude in our group. In fact, he and Erica were working on a submission (ultimately unpublished) to the anthology Smut Peddler around the time this page was drawn.
