an interaction i've been very excited to draw for a long time!

[page description & captions]

[lick heaves a huge sigh of relief. dusty is frowning indignantly.
lick: "okay... please, don't mess that up again."
dusty: "oh, that'll be easy. i just have to NOT think about crashing. about the infinite ways things could totally go wrong."]
[lick smirks.
lick: "hey, relax, ok? the more you freak out, the sooner you'll kill us."]
[dusty is frantic, shouting:
dusty: "BE QUIET!!"]
[overhead, the train winding through the mountain valley. up ahead at the tops of the mountains, snow starts to come into view.]
[the train further ahead, snow closing in and blanketing the canyon floor now.]
[lick is curled up, staring ahead tiredly.]
[they curl into themselves tighter, shivering.]
[hearing a noise, their ear perks up.
dusty: "...choo choo..."]
[across from lick, dusty is staring intently past the windshield.
dusty: "chugga-chugga-chugga, chugga-chugga-chugga..."]
[lick watches with amusement, smiling softly.
lick: "choo choo!"]
[dusty is surprised at lick's voice.]
