Added DiffLines:

* MostWritersAreWriters: Gary is a wannabe comics artist, and Yuki is a wannabe comics writer (and the daughter of a manga creator), and sometimes collaborates with him. On top of that, Yuki, Zii, and Sonya are in a band and Giz used to be a professional musician. (Sonya, the band's bass player, even looks a bit like Giz, who played bass.)
