Yeah, I hated it when they canceled Firefly, too.
Marry me. Okay, marry me and the person I’m actually marrying.
Thank you all, I’m here all week! Try the chocobo! Or GA Plus!
Hey, we only go for that sort of thing over at Fans!
Have you forgotten all the “Internet crushes” many of us Penny and Aggie fans have on each other? ;)
Oy, is there a line one can stand in, in order to marry you ?
What a douche.
That’s the wrong kind of vessel for a douche.
Looks about right to me.
…That’s angry, not douchey.
Trashing a magical item they all risked their lives for before the entire party can use it. Sounds like a douche to me. :P
Ditto, i mean i acutally hoped he had turned into a less-er douche but this? It just ain’t right.
….And why do i have Bandit as my avatar? I can’ remember choosing her! …True i like Bandit but still! ^^
Umm…ok. Just relax. A pimple is a pimple :)
What did he see 0_O
That someone else got the high score.
Sounds about right. *nods sagely*
He got forum banned.
Reminds me of many a game of Magic the Gathering at my college.
He’s disgracin’ the basin.
I waited SO LONG to say that.
Just losin’ face, n’ displacin’ not disgracin’ …
The destiny he’s chasin’ is not one he’s embracin’
So better call a mason, cuz this altar he’s defacin’
These rhymes are amasin’
I wish to be embracin’
All you bros who are erasin’
These puns are miracles and I’m not hatin’
That joke I be casin’
And now I’ve totally stolen it for my good friend Jason.
I took a tracin’.
I think we’re racin’ to the place in which the gang is embracin’ the fight they’ll be facin’ without help from the basin.
Yeah, you really DID miss your last payment. WELCOME TO THE BIG SHOW CALLED ADULTHOOD.
Gravedust looks nonplussed…
Poor Gravedust, not tall enough to ride. He must be as confused as us right now
You would think someone would have offered him a piggyback ride.
Looks like he might get a consolation shower.
Great, he flipped it over and now no one else gets to ask questions. There better be a chest behind it or else somebody’s getting a vote-kick.
*takes bets on whether it lands on Gravedust’s head or not*
To be fair, while they did discuss getting a turn to use the basin amongst themselves, nobody mentioned that plan to Best. So far’s we know it’s a “diplomatic challenge” they never actually took on.
This is where Best finds out he’s going to become a villain.
I fully agree.Even if he isn’t…I think everyone else just missing their turn looking at the basin..after they all put their lives on the line for it
The basin might have shown him the forum’s discussions about him as a character?
Very interesting that everyone else’s faces echo Peyet’s…maybe it’s not just showing him that he has no special destiny…maybe it’s something worse…
Well, that or they’re just stunned that he overturned the basin after promising them each a looksie as well.
Well, they look pretty horrified in the two panels before that, too.
(Whatever it is, T’s evil for making us wait to find out. >_>)
You’re right. I hadn’t noticed their expressions because I was focused on Payet’s.
*nod* Also, on that note? Kudos to John for the expressions on Frigg and Syr’nj’s faces – Payet and Byron, it wasn’t hard to have the slow progression to horror/anger, since their whole faces are shown, but to pull it off with just eyes and eyebrows is damn good artifying.
Thank you, Kamino.
such a cute avatar.
I just checked the archives, and he never made such a promise “on-screen.” They just mentioned that they would ask him about it.
Perhaps it is showing him ‘the real world’?
Maybe this action of throwing away the basin is what cracks HR’s monitor in chapter 9?
Byrons face > everything.
Oh god, I just looked at Gravedust’s face after reading the comic. I can’t look at it again, I’ll die of laughter.
With the raise of an eyebrow, he can command legions of laughter.
First post here on this webcomic, ever…but has it ever occured to you that we just saw what he saw? That he was going to be stuck with the rest of the team forever?
After this week’s comics, it’s unlikely that would get such a furious reaction.
It’s cause he’s not really the prophesied one. Remember waaaay back when that second elf came to the village who fit the prophecy’s description even better? Five bucks says that Best has been trying to live up to a mantle that isn’t his.
yeah,said the same thing a page earlier.
I also Bet that he “finally” saw that he is not a destinied hero.
Or at least i sure hope so. Even thought he changed mostly for the best (no pun intended,really.) in the last 4 pages. He still could need a good blow to his ego.
He already has the new ability to care-for-others,if he loses his overconfidence now, he may be finally a likeable character.
I can understand his reaction.
I doubt anyone would be happy when they find out they’re destined to spend eternity making faces in a pool of water.
It’s only showing him the growing friendship between himself and Byron. The 4th panel is where they hug. In the next one they kiss…
“You will all serve me and die painfully.”
Ummmmm… if this is a place designed by Sky Elves…. wouldn’t the basin be MAGICALLY activated? o.o
Yeah, they need to fire a magic missle at it.
“No, guys, it’s still good. Gravedust can answer your questions as long as the basin is on his head.“
Epic helmet slot item: The Basin of Foresight
The magic is lost forever one day when Gravedust stoops to pick up a copper piece from the floor of a tavern.
He knew it’d happen, but he just decided it was about time.
I just realized GD can’t reach to see into the basin. :P I suppose the party filling him in will be a good excuse to inform the readers what went on.
Doesn’t his eyes in panel one say it all, too? “Yep, once again, I’m short.”
It does though it may also be referring to Best’s cajoling with the basin.
Has anyone considered that it might have shown them the real world? Where they’re just characters played by folks sitting in a tube?
I was going to draw parallels between Best’s reaction and the reactions I was seeing in the comments during the whole “real world” section of Guilded Age.
Epic face, epic face, epic face, epic face, jizz in my pants!
For those who don’t know what I’m referring to. :P
Whelp? But puppies are supposed to make you happy…
Ah, I see the problem! This is not the Basin of Foresight, it’s the Basin of Foreskins! All it does is show you what a dick you are.
waugh mental image
brain bleach! brain bleach!!
Yeah, I hate it when people forget to flush, too.
dude, it took me a second read to see byron’s face slowly change. and then i giggled. musta been bad.
Really, who DIDN’T see this coming?
Might just be because I saw the original Tron last night but I can’t but imagine:
Panel 2: Basin of Foresight coming online…please wait….
Panel 3: Basin of Foresight online…User Payet Best indentified…
Panel 4: Current Status: Hero of Akkerra….seeking destiny…
Panel 5: ERROR….Payet Best is not the prophecized Hero of Akkerra
Panel 6: Correct Hero of Akkerra….Peter Blest… error corrected….
Panel 7: Destiny of Payet Best….stable boy for three additional years…death by infection…end of line.
…really should double check myself
Gold Star worthy imo.
The group is his destiny. That’s why he is angry.
OR, his destiny is to look into the basin to see his destiny. That’d be amusing, for sure.
No, then it would just be called the Basin of Inception.
Yo dawg, we heard you liked Destiny, so we put your destiny in your destiny so you could see your destiny while viewing your destiny.
