If I may quote one Sara Velte: “Will you just. Kiss her. Already?”
Man, I’d get up for free ale.
Shalalalalala my oh my, looks like this boy’s too shy, ain’t gonna kiss the girl.
…That was not the comment I wanted to reply to.
How about, “Oh Byron you’re so fine…you’re so fine, you blow my mind! Hey Byron, hey, hey, hey Byron!”
But the ale isn’t free.
This is ale you buy by saving someone’s life.
This better be some damned good ale.
Alternatively, a very cheap life.
That’s how wars with yeast elves get started.
Those irritating skirmishes were a rash on the elven body politic. It was a happy day when the troops were finally discharged. Now we wear a patch of cranberries, in remembrance.
I’m thinking “Let me buy you an ale” would also translate into “Nice boots” under certain circumstances
or “nice bottom”
Those two are just so effing cute, seriously.
It could just be me, but it seems Syr’Nj has already mastered the human ways.
Aaaand the elf goes for broke!
Good on ya, gel!
The Auld Grump
I love that she ahemed before saying it. Good little detail.
“Let me buy you an ale” Sounds like a date invitation to me.
Also I love the image of Syr “approaching” in the 1st panel. She looks ever so ethereal.
I saw Lord of the Rings. Elf favors are serious stuff. Destinies are built around such things. Buying a brew for a comrade is, of course, the direct equivalent.
“Let me buy you a drink.”
A mating call of the modern age.
“Oh god I’m drunk!”
“I’ll attract the enemy with my human call!! ‘I’m so wasted! I’m SO wasted!’”
Wow, she understands human men PERFECTLY. Well, actually, maybe not, if that was the case she would have opened with the invitation for free booze. Still, she’s made amazing progress.
I can’t see Syr’nk as a young maiden because the way she’s drawn, she looks like she’s 60 (human years). Must be the crease on the cheeks.
she’s probably like 200 (human years)…
but we’ll never know…because phil dodged the question on question day.
Beer. The ultimate reward.
it seems their relationship is starting to flower.
You sir, make me groan.
Shouldn’t Byron be groaning, since he’s getting ‘lei’ed?
My money says Byron doesn’t figure it out. He doesn’t have any points in Sense Motive or Insight – he let Best B.S. him big time, and usually ‘just takes whatever price they offer’.
He’s smart – HELLA smart – but he’s not *savvy*.
Tbh I have a feel that Byron simply isn’t interested in Syr “that way”. Most of their interaction that we see as foreshadowing of a relationship was imposed by external influences and whatever issue he might have I don’t think Byron would be that reserved when it comes to woman he “likes”.
I sort of expect Syr will learn that life isn’t as rosy and that the real challenge lies in maintaining one’s principles and morals in the face of disappointment. She will also need to sort out whether her enthusiasm for this mission came from her desire for peace or simply because she wanted to be close to Byron.
This just seems like the sort of thing the GA authors would do.
Whether he figures it out or not (i.e. maybe Bandit clues him in, or whatever) is independent of whether or not he would reciprocate if/when he finds out.
There’s a decent chance this comes down to issues of race for Byron. After all, he has stated he doesn’t like killing humans and doesn’t think anyone should kill their own race. Maybe he just isn’t into mixing flavors, y’kno?
it would be cool if that viewpoint was presented…i mean, at the end of the day, the race issue in the world of GA runs a little deeper than in RL. these are actually completely different species- syr’nj is probably closer to a tree than a human.
I don’t know, I’m the kind of guy who’s terrified of a woman once I reach the love (caring) stage. I simply can’t make a mistake with her, because my happy existence (with her) is at stake and in the balance. At least as I perceive things.
Anyone else notice his lack of facial hair, third panel?
Now that you’ve pointed it out, I can’t stop staring at it.
We’ll fix that sooner or later.
IT’S A MIRACLE.
IF ONLY BYRON COULD GROW A MOUSTACHE THIS WAY.
IT’S AN ACT OF THE BEARD GOD!!
BEARDS FOR THE BEARD GOD!
Is that a Dwarf Fortress reference?
warhammer. khorne is the blood god. his minions are constantly yelling- “blood for the blood god”
Ah. People on the Dwarf Fortress forum do the same thing. Now I know where they got it from.
I’ve been laughing at BEARDS FOR THE BEARD GOD! like all damn day today.
So, Gold Star.
about time i got one of these.
You fixed it! How could you hide a miracle of the BEARD GODS?! Heretics! Hiding the TRUTH!
That was the miracle!
Well. If Byron doesn’t get the hint, Syr may have to get a little more…hmm…direct.
*goes off to write raunchy fanfic*
Well, see, there’s this thing we wood elves call “getting moreso…”
It occurs to me that any culture could use that excuse to try to get away with things. In my culture we remove our clothing and jump on bed. what? its customary damn’t. I swear i’m not making this up.
legen-wait for it-dary mating call of the Bazoomians of Amazonia
was “I amme SOOO drunke.”
that’s sounds an awful lot like the dryads from warcraft three. you know, when you clicked on them too many times and they would say “I’ll use my human mating call, I’m SO wasted”
What happens if you click on them FOUR times?
Imagine that scene from Evil Dead, except… Well…. You know what, you *don’t* want to know.
*timid voice* Okay I get it. I take back what I said.
Best. Translation. Ever.
He got lei’d!
oh god how did no one make that yet?
Some o fus were practicing restraint…
I don’t know. I don’t really see the two of them together. Not in a romantic relationship, anyways. The favour translates into “Let me buy you an ale.” That hardly strikes me as romantic. The flowery appearance, while potentially romantic in nature, I’m more inclined to write down as being due to “Wood Elviness”.
While I could be wrong and there COULD be romance between them, I would not be surprised at all if they continued as simply friends.
The favour translates into “Let me buy you an ale.” That hardly strikes me as romantic.
Well, how about ‘Can I buy you a drink?’
Am I the only one bothered he called Syr’nj a ‘ho’?
It was more of a “Sing ho! for the life of a bear” kind of ho.
What, there hasn’t been a d’awww yet? Someone fix that.
I’d be more than happy to.
No D’awwww for you. Except for Pi but he doesn’t count.
when in hawaii. it’s called a “Lei” isn’t it?
syr’nj in a grass skirt, there’s a mental image. wait, i’m an artist. why does it need to be a mental image? brb.
This is the meaning of art =)
Also, please show us when it’s finished.
Damn she has nice thighs.
i should do this kind of thing more often.
guilded age deserves more fanart than it gets.
(and less about raping the monarchy. who encouraged that?!?)
to Dojang :
It’s … quite unusual to see Syr’nj in that kind of garb. And very interesting, by the way. :-)
…what’s with that caption? Ale is the only reason most of us wake up in the morning.
‘Cause whiskey puts us out ’til noon.
I’m surprised the comments went this long without making a wood joke.
It would seem soo. I only stick to other branches of jokes.
You missed two perfectly good floral puns above, most of them pertaining to Byron’s new rose-ary.
Okay, yes, I know that that one was just reaching.
just leaf it alone.
(also, lei-ve it alone…)
I refer you, sirs, to the following:
Just because you all deserve to have it inflicted on you.
I’d hate to go out on a limb here, but-
this isn’t by the platinum grit guys, is it? looks a little like their stuff.
….So, how does he know she didn’t just propose to him and he unwittingly accepted? She’s supposedly the good and honest type, but hey, I’ve known characters who’ve pulled the ‘you don’t really understand my culture and I’m the only member of my race in this group so I’m gonna pull a fast one on your ass the entire campaign’.
True incident: Back around college days, my girlfriend’s straitlaced, shy (and virgin) female friend went to a New Year’s party with us, and afterward commented “I got a little horny and a lei.”
Don’t take that drink– she’s trying to slip you a leafy!
