This page likewise is not very surprising, and I considered compressing it into the next. Glad I didn’t, especially given how important Penk ended up becoming. This moment may have been one that you could guess would happen, but it needed to be felt.

(I also appreciate how, in the scenes of spiritual communion, Tectonicus generally takes over the alt text. It’s a subtle thing, but it makes his presence feel more spiritually pervasive. Even Frigg’s scenes with the wolf don’t function on quite the same level, because she will never submit to her god’s will as Penk and Harky do.)
