Say it with me now:
Loving Syr’Nj in this one. Panel two is one of my favourites :)
I third this D’AWWWWW, most definitely. I particularly liked the awkward blushing in panel 4. Also, Byron kinda looks like Marty McFly with the clothing-wise, pulls it off too.
to the Nth power!
I sooo like the 4th panel.
By the way, I wonder why Syr’Nj says what she says in the 2nd panel.
“Nothing they can do to me can diminish what I do for them”
What’s yer point, Syr’Nj ? You like working for people (and risking your life while doing it) and let them hate you or throwing stuff or hitting you ? Are you a masochist or what ? ^^
No, it’s just that she defines herself not by the way she’s treated but by her own actions. Neat.
Looks like good writers…ship.
Go for it. Out of the 3 choices, probably the best one, Byron.
threesome with bandit and Syr
Bandit’d take off before it was Byron’s or Syr’s turn. :P
So, wood elves turn red when they blush? I bet they’re real pretty in autumn.
Probably hard to rouse in the winter though.
Wood elves have blood too, you know.
I just figured their sap would be more brownish or something.
Syrn’j would be cute here, but DANG, she needs some more meat on her bones. Or more meat in her diet, period?
i dunno. there’s a difference between anorexic and just naturally *willowy*. frigg’s meaty enough to compensate.
I swear to Frog, if that prophet’s name is Cassandra, I am going to kill something.
Why? What if she doesn’t even tell the Truth?
She does tell it, but you won’t believe it.
Hmmm. Know what? I don’t think Frigg gets more then her one chance. Guess she blew it.
On the plus side, we can now imagine horrible euphemism confusion between these very different races if it goes that far. I’m imagining something about pollination and axes being mentioned and it all going hilariously wrong but sexily resolved.
Fine, I’ll be first… Syr’nj is just doing what’s in her nature. She gave byron some wood. (horrible but too exhausted to think of better).
Augh, and now when I read panels 3 & 4 I notice the slight difference in the lines of Byron’s pants!
Oh. My. God.
It’s called not copying and pasting (unlike some comics). Also, haven’t any of you noticed the seam in the front of your pants?
Most of us (repeat, most) are aware of the small differences that crop up when dfrawing each panel by hand.
Keeping that in mind would have killed a funny joke, however.
I really don’t think the man’s that small.
Have I mentioned I’m thoroughly digging Byron’s Han Solo threads?
Does this mean we’re going to have to start arguing about who swung first: Him or Best?
Only after the revisions.
syrn’j seems so much more relaxed. like, even aside from the casual dialogue. her whole body is normally so stiff…it’s good to see her like this.
ah! soothsaying. because everyone wants to think of their future in terms of smelly animal entrails.
Oh, goodness. I hope that’s actually (/not?) how they do it. How would Syrn’j react to such a thing? Oh me oh my.
pretty sure that was a common method. some people read stones, some people read tea leaves- but back in the bad old days it was all about the animal entrails. mmmm-mmm. i thought your future smelt bad from the outside.
Well most fortune telling had to do with the fortune teller reading into their own intuition within random cracks or twigs or bones. But the animal entrails started out as a way for traders to know if a certain province had a disease rampant by investigating animal organs from that area.
that’s interesting- i was thinking about something more like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haruspex
oh snap. an axeman and a tree. how did i not get this before? that’s awesome, T and P.
Dear Alt-Text: I don’t get it.
Also, I want Byron’s hair. I want it. It’s the manliest hair I’ve ever seen. I’d be unstoppable.
Exotic things are not handy, and feathers are not heavy, and seriously, people who hurl exotic feathers do have problems. Trust me on this.
… Wow, that was really forced. I have to say, that feather joke just did not tickle my fancy in the least.
Han Solo and Elizabeth Bennett, together at last.
Awwwww, such a cute innocent comment with an awkwardness chaser.
@ The Indomitable Eric: Oh my god, he totally does look like Han Solo! ^w^
If only the guys hurling handy or heavy objects combined their logic and started throwing gold coins if not their entire sack of coins at you.
ok whoever saw the awkward date scenario, well done.
Awwwww, what an adorably awkward first dat…I mean daytime-reconnaissance.
He Says Sooth Said By The Sea Shore.
She says she sells Said Sooth surely.
Something in my cold dead heart stirred when I read this.
It turned out to be vomit.
Someone punch something in the face, hurry!
might wanna get that checked.
don’t think puke is supposed to come from there.
You carry vomit ducts in your heart? Man, I heard of heart burn but this is just preposterous!
Worse yet, the vomit was COLD? Are you sure it was your heart, as in the one you have in your body?
Well, it was a heart he OWNS. That should count for something.
I want some of MY sooth said. . .
‘course, I’ll settle for Byron and Syr’nj’s (Man, I’m glad I’m typing this so I don’t have to try to say that one out loud), and can I say that I’m looking forward to the foreshadowing?
Have fun storming that castle Byron!
Is there a reason there’s a white space under Byron’s pants in panels 3 and 4?
BOY, IS THERE!
HERESY. BURN HIM!
I had sooth said to me once. It was anything but sooth, lemme tell ya.
“Leaves are green, skies are blue, let them stare 4 I have you.”
“Roses are red,
Hydras are green,
The monsters I’ve seen.”
Well… Miss Medical Instrument maybe an ugly girl, but I bet, that I would love to be in Byron’s place… Of course with muscles.
The alt-text reminds me of a scene in the 1989 Batman where Jack Nicholson kills a man with a thrown feather. Closest thing to a clip of it that I found was around 0:14 in this youtube vid:
1. I can’t believe this is happening. BUT there’s a lot to analyze in Byron’s lines.
2. I take back what I said before, half of the way: Syr’Nj should NOT wear pink. Outdoors.
3. Byron looks kinda… goofy. In Panel 1. Panel 2 might be the most detail we’ve seen on a skull yet, so I can just take that as further defining his appearance, but panel 1… is off.
4. The return of the ‘f’-S !
The ‘f’-S is called a “long S” and has distinguishing features which Wikipedia can explain at length; in a nutshell, that sign really does say “Fortunef.”
Incidentally, the end of a word is the one place where a long S was never used. I’ll give the benefit of the doubt and assume deliberate satire rather than compound research failure. ;)
Now I got thinking about who’ll they run into inside that fortune telling tent. Can’t help but wonder if it’s Best in there running a scam.
Oh ok, it’s not really a tent I guess…
What’s the white thing between Byron’s legs? Is there some inexplicably white and clean piece of backdrop there amidst the sea of smudgy purple, was it a miss with the fill tool, or is there actually some sort of tetrahedral something in front of or in his crotch?
