Drawing sunglasses (and glasses) is haaaard! Look at how huge and clunky they look on Steve aaah
Also hey, don't they get along well? Steve and Eve even got matching tattoos, damn!
OH WAIT I remember something actually worth mentioning (for once) :D
There actually was a story behind Allan's immediate strong reaction to the fire going on (I mean, apart from the fact that it's a freaking fire going on), in my mind he had already lived a house fire once when younger and probably with Lillian too, and freaked the fuck out. Was this also a backstory I had in mind for his ears being hidden all the time? Probably. I probably thought something like "oh and that's why he keeps his ears hidden, one of them got burned in that tragic event" :D (that smiley face shouldn't be there, right?)
But then I went back on that idea later on, and went with his ears being smaller than the norm when born. (I forget what that's called!)
