@sans sleep: Thanks!

@Té Rowan: They do have a lot of similar personality traits, don't they?

@Arlo Vance - Enough that it was the first thing I thought of.

Luna Lovegood?
I googled that, expecting a Bond femme excelling in the oral arts, but found … Harry Potter.
What was JK thinking?!

At any rate, the face is outrageous, although the serif on "e" breaks the spell for me.

@Nick Thanks! (I think)
I see what you mean with the e. Perhaps an update with an alt is in order.

@Khaito Glad you love it. It was a joy to create.

Although I like radical experiments, I generally stick to the internal "rules" of a typeface, rather than make exceptions for the sake of appearance. But your premise, that only the "o" be unserifed, is also quite logical.
