Derek: Wait, WHAT?
Gabe: Ha, I'm just joking Derek. Can't you take a joke?
Derek: ...somehow, I doubt that it was a joke...
HOLY CRUD I ACTUALLY TRIED TO MAKE AN INTERESTING BACKGROUND. Okay, I didn't try that much, but it was still effort!
While Gabe could have been referring to CR-S01 when he was talking about an old friend of his, I think that we would prefer it if it was Derek he was talking about. But he's already old friends with Naomi and lots of other notable people such as the heiress to a prominent ninja clan and a rather powerful politician.
Conclusion: Gabriel is old friends with everybody. EVERYBODY.
And with that, I'll be going to a summer camp until July 18th, so I won't be able to upload any more comics. I'll keep on thinking of more ideas though, and I'll be checking in on deviantART pretty frequently as well!
