Identity confirmed. Also, she continues being suspicious and Dan talks suspiciously long about her design ...

... also, Grace is suspicious, but can still pretend she padded her bra. Also, introducing herself as someone's girlfriend to someone who likes gossips ... I know, we talked about it not being that big gossip, but still.

Did you notice the suspicious font?

Yes.  Different fonts, with one exception, mean something.

Pizza girl does that when she's lying. Labeled for your convenience.

I'm convinced this is gossip girl, the school reference adds to the lined up dots. And she is aware of something, Smoke is still a good bet.

"I love transformation magic" - she's going to get invited to the party. Somehow. She knows too much.

I'll take a cookie on the gossip girl recognition, I'll also take a cookie on her noticing Grace's boobs being bigger than they usually are at school.

She claims that Grace startled her by way she opened the door, but there was definitely a hesitation like she was trying to decide how to proceed, which the whole exchange could be her trying to play it cool by mentioning school. Of course though, Smoke might not want to linger too long so pointing out Grace's boobs is probably not a good choice even though it's not rousing any suspicion from Grace, the other thing though, Smoke is interested in transformations, delivering this much pizza would certainly make her think "this is for a party" and then seeing Grace like that could make her think "this is a party where people are transforming themselves". Would the temptation to get a peek be greater than the thought of "this is the girl that I couldn't copy her transformation, what are the chances her friends are similar? also they might kick my arse if they found out that was me the other day."

There is a code of ethics observed by pizza delivery professionals the world over that prevents them from gossiping about what they see on delivery

UNFORTUNATELY, it is not observed on THIS particular world, and probably not in the Moperverse either

There is a question of whether the gossip/pizza girl works for the same pizza place as Matt Cohen did, and whether Matt had mentioned anything about the time he delivered to Tedd's house, which gave gossip/pizza girl expectations.

Of course there is a code of ethics for pizza delivery persons.  Its existence is  parodied by tonnes of porn however.

So shortly after the comic was released, discord started wondering what the change in font could mean, theories spanned from Gossip/Pizza girl being possessed by another bodysnatcher that avoided the aberrationcide, to Pandora in disquise for some reason (I really don't see Pandora being ready for a return yet and the Gossip/Pizza girls' first appearance was like 2 days after the mall incident and Pandora's forced reset so I highly doubt that Pandora would have completed her refresh that fast and then why hide from Tedd and her family?). Anyway Dan did say we've seen a font change like this before (mostly it's been to convey an emotional tone or mood of the speaker) but also just had to point out that he wasn't talking about Pandora.

Seriously, in this case, there is no mystery, she does it when she's lying; well, covering up her true intentions, at least.

"You opened the door so fast that it startled me" - no, she's reacting to seeing Grace.

"it's just - You don't look like a Tedd" - if you transform, you could have been Tedd.

Grace, on the other hand, gets a normal font for "I have no idea what you mean,". I guess we didn't need the assistance for Grace.

Last panel, pizza girl does not like having her own game played on her.

The font in question is a bit weird; it has a bit of a pseudo-Asian flavor, merged with a comic style script look. All the people that hate Comic Sans ought to really go nuts over this font. It is slightly difficult to read.

Dan uses a similar font here for Grace (perhaps the same, it's all caps), but for emphasis; "Nothing shall remain!" (of the pizza).

I'm still thinking that pizza girl is Smoke.

"Mind if I smoke on your porch?"

"Nah, go ahead."

"OK." <Poof!>

"Gaahhh!"

That might attract the notice of DGB, even if magic isn't the big secret any more.

The exact font Dan used for Gossip/Pizza girl here he also used for Diane when she was getting everyone's attention and saying she was a virgin. Though in Diane's case she was being loud to make sure people heard her say that, also Diane's being truthful in that case, so I don't really seen any connection here.

Bad idea. She's wizard and would be able to learn a lot.

And Edward.

I got answer from Dan that the defenses around Tedd's house are not made to prevent people from entering, so Diane was ok and even this girl would be ok ... if she tries to enter as human. Maybe she will be stopped if she tries to enter as smoke.

I got the impression that the magical defenses at the Verres house were less pre-emptively proactive and more reactive--rather than automatically blocking entry, they would be triggered by e.g. somebody firing up dangerous magic as opposed to simply keeping out unidentified persons.

It might be a case of if they're entering through the door, it's likely they've been invited in, which doesn't set off whatever security Edward's got in place. If someone were to use magic to gain entry without the door being opened for them, then it triggers security. It might be possible that someone in a hard to detect form could sneak by Grace right now while she's talking to the Gossip/Pizza girl, but otherwise trying to slide under the door while it's closed wouldn't work.

Yes, that could also work.

So it detects vampyres who enter places that they are not able to enter?

Agent Veres, let me help you with your next security upgrade
For JUST $1,000.00 per day I can keep gangs of 50 or more banjo playing, unicycle riding, cannibalistic Methodist Bishops from roaming the streets of Moperville*

*No guarantee offered against Episcopalian Bishops or if the author actively circumvents the security system
