  1. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    This is true, but that's also hypothetical right now, since, as you just said, transformation magic is all it's getting right now. Not that we got a lot of screen time with said blondie. *shrug* That is a possibility as well, yes. We don't have a set time for age when Tedd's parents divorced, though we can assume one for Susan's. The youngest we've seen Tedd was with the bit with William and Jillian, and that was apparently long enough a time that Edward was concerned about how reserved and quiet Tedd was being. I think that depends on how much of Mr. Pompom's Edward would have seen. Also, if he was already upset about the divorce, he'd likely not be thinking logically if he thought his wife and his friend had betrayed his trust in that manner (conclusion jumping is alive and well). Yeah, only 5. I have to be to work by 5am, and it's almost 9pm right now. Well, in theory, anyway; this is going to be tricky with the buses not running and the curfew between 8pm tonight and 6am tomorrow morning (I'm in Minneapolis )--the letter for COVID might work, but I don't know for sure, as this is a different situation. I know about the wiki, yes, but I didn't know about the discord I've seen mentioned. Is it an invite-only chat?

    That's my take on it, too. Granted, it's making an assumption on when said divorces happened, but since this door seems interested in transformation magic in various ways, I'm still wondering if she might be the blond Susan found him with. Also, if she brought him over and/or Edward just happened to catch them in a romantically compromised position as well, it would certainly explain the rift between him and Adrian. Susan did say Adrian is a near-dead ringer for her dad... I'm not sure. I thought I saw it before, but I'm not on here very often. Yes. Him. Thank you. Also, a good point with the name/title. (I already have four tabs opened on various points in EGS and didn't want to open a fifth. A-heh.)

    Also wouldn't be surprised if he already knows Uromoco. Not to mention knowing how to use said sword. This is true, yes. I can therefore also see her recently-divorced self being attracted to Mr. Pompom's also-recently-divorced self... [insert grining sweat-drop emoji here] Well, he could always ask... Hetep? Was that the name of the god Pandora visited?

    Personally, I think he's keeping up the Britishness for two reasons: first, it gives him a valid reason to be eccentric (recall the ascot on his first appearance?) in a way that no-one will overly question his reasoning behind (though they may question why he's in the US in the first place). Second, British English, when spoken with the right accent, comes off as potentially posh and educated, thereby allowing him to be quite verbose, and, if he is so inclined, to be rather on the sesquipedalian side. I mean, English in general has 171,476 words, and the average person only knows about 20,000-40,000. (Yes, I did google both of those facts.) As for the comic, I'm more inclined to think it's Noriko (since her kvetching would be at odds with her sleeping with him later), but I like the idea of it being Mama Kitsune. Also! Since the door is upside down and the griffons are supposedly from the "flip-side of the coin," I think it would be interesting if the doorknob is being tried by someone from that world, since the door is now facing the right "direction" for them to use it.

    Glomp from above? Or that they talked before. Regardless, you're reinforcing my point. *shrug*
  6. Story Wednesday October 31, 2018

    She may not have a choice when it comes to Pandora; being immortal, she could just pop in randomly going "Granddaughter! " Given her previous incarnation's penchant for pranks, this would most likely possibly include a glomp from behind. I woould like to assume that if her mother wasn't a prostitute (and the whole, "we agreed it was a one-time thing" seems to indicate that they at least knew each other), they would have talked about their careers or similar things before finding a hotel for the night; she would have known Raven is a teacher, and probably at which school, and could have sought him out. Granted, having never participated in a one-night-stand (being demisexual/ace, myself), I could be completely wrong about that; I'm not sure I understand how random hookups work. *shrug* No comics next week, eh? So long as Dan doesn't end Friday with a cliffhang, that should be fine. >_>;
  7. Story Wednesday January 31, 2018

    *reads comic* *reads commentary* Huh. Okay, well since Susan isn't there, it will have to be Van that makes the suggestion. I wonder if Wizards will continue getting spells of their own, while other magic users will have to be content to learn magic from spellbooks others let them reference? Hmmm... -------- Side note, I'm not going to be around here much for the next few months; I'm taking 16 credits on top of working full time, and the two core classes (which I need to take so I can declare my major), which should be easy, involve a lot of reading. I'll pop by every now and then to comment on the comic itself (as I am right now), but I'm most likely not going to respond to being quoted unless I have a rare completely free day.

    So I should search for an app, then. Gotcha. Oh, I know there's all sorts of issues with it. I was putting it out there as a suggestion of a small change, not as a suggestion of what to actually *do.*
  9. Story, Wednesday January 17, 2018

    What is Discord, anyway? I thought it was a forum thing but Google shows it might be an app for gamers? O_o (ie, may I have a link to this egs forum type thing, please?) Regarding Raven wanting to talk to Diane, the only thing I can think of if his asking if they can talk later and please don't tell others (ie, her classmates) about his heritage, let him know if she wants to be transfered out of him class. Alas, he's probably not thinking logically right now (more like emotionally), so it's just as well that Susan stopped him. If this truly is magic getting Tedd's attention for changing the system, well, please bear in mind that magic doesn't have to change a lot in order to change. There can always be the caveat of "people who see magic working won't remember seeing it unless they're either awakened magic users or dreaming." The magic system changed to make it harder to remember seeing magic used. Have wave it away, and all that jazz. Magic users won't have to learn a new system, and magic won't be majorly exposed even if someone mimics what Pandora did with the blockage.

    Yeah, but it took a sword and really flashy magic to get it done.
  11. Story: Monday 15 Jan 2018

    Which makes me think it's something that would cause burnout leading to death if a mortal tried to cast it. Not sure what would happen if it was cast via a wand instead.
  12. Story: Monday 15 Jan 2018

    Impose more restrictions on him? Make him move away from the family he just met? Demand the government do something about him (which, for all we know, Arthur might do anyway)? Send him to the other side of the world coin? Otherwise make his life miserable or arrange him to be put in jail? (Planting rumors and manipulation are old-hats for most immortals. Just look what Voltaire did to plant animosity between Raven and his mother simply by giving Dex a pendant with a Pithos on it and having Noah involved/find it! Raven blamed her for putting Noah in danger during that event, and didn't look anywhere else. What's to keep an immortal from taking his shape and bedding one or more of his students? Unless he keeps track of exactly where he is at all times and makes sure other people see him, he may not have an alibi in a case like that. His reputation would be trashed, and he'd be in jail and not able to do anything about it. The only way I can see him getting out of that situation is if someone has a tell-me-true spell like the Heralds or Valdemar! Somehow I doubt that would be admisable in a court of law, unless there's some very interesting court cases in the EGS world.) Speaking of Magus and Pandora... Hey Magus? Mission accomplished! I don't think you were planning on this being the way to "end Pandora" but that's what happened. So... Congratulations, I guess? I have to wonder if Voltaire was expecting something like this to happen when he set Sirleck on Adrian, or if this caught him by surprise? Hmmm.... That would be awesome! Bonus points if he casts it on Sirleck while he Dad can see him doing so. How fast are you with your camera phone, Tedd? If he has picked up on the immortal connection, I have to wonder if he'd be included in any conversations that Voltaire tries to have with everyone? Light side/Dark side to that. Hmm.... Yeah, but will Raven have the wit right now to take the dam down? Methinks he might be a tad preoccupied with the events of the last minute. If he's that on the ball, though - awesome!
  13. Story: Monday 15 Jan 2018

    I'm guessing most abberations are in the cities. O_o Last panel makes me wonder if Tedd sensed something of that spell happening. Or if she's been overdoing it with adding spells to her wand. And yeah, this being a world-wide event, I'm guessing magic's gonna change. Then again, with what's going on in the mall, it might have anyway. D'oh! Edit: Ooh... How many of those immortals are going to blame Raven/his relations for what Pandora just put them thriugh?
  14. Story: Friday 12 Jan 2018

    This is a good point. @Tom Sewell How is refering to Noah as family not showing affection for him? O_o I'm assuming that the lack of connection would also have to do with Diane's lack of magic. Remember, he was specifically sensing Susan's power as an awakened magic user, not just that there was "something about her." @hkmaly 1) I don't know about that; given that Arthur apparently wants to deport him to Russia, it's not that hard to believe he would consider Raven ineligible for adoption, or otherwisse stand in the way of the process. Happens to normal people all the time anyway. As an aside, it would be really funny if he wants to deport Adrian to Russia because his daughter is Diane's bioMom. XD 2) Just because Edward hasn't said anything about Noah on-panel it doesn't hold that Edward doesn't know about him. I don't know of anyone else Noah could have been referring to when he said "they asked you to take me in." If Edward isn't involved in that "they" I'll be rather surprised. 3) Also a good point. 4) We don't know that Diane is going to age normally, though. From what we saw of him in Pandora's story arc in the beginning of Sister III, it looks like Adrian was aging normally anyway. Age 10, appeared to be 10. It's possible he hit the mid-twenties and just stopped aging. Depending on how old he is, he might start aging normally, and if that's the case, he might welcome the prospect of dying from old age. Provided he doesn't suddenly crumple into dust, I don't see a problem with this. Supposedly, they were planning to see a movie, so how close they are to the mall depends entirely on where the movie theater they're going to is in relation to the mall (I know MOA has a mall inside it, but I believe it has closed in the last few years; another mall near me has an AMC attatched to it, but the entrance is external to the mall, so they really just share the parking lot). Given that the SIster III story line has been progressing over what is now almost a week in comic, I won't be shocked if it rolls into Saturday as well.
  15. Story: Friday 12 Jan 2018

    Am I the only one upset by her not giving him a hug goodbye? Hmmm... Connection, eh? Connection between the two sides of the coin, connection between immortals, or connection with her blood line? Will Diane and Susan now have actual Vulcan ears, instead of Vulcan-like ears (which Dan hasn't really been drawing lately, anyway)? Awesome as that would be (Susan would probably love it), I'm assuming it's the connection between worlds. I'm assuming it has to do with the dam she put up, since (I'm sure someone already mentioned?) she wasn't legally allowed to take it down before. I have to wonder whether Adrian will be able to remain relatively composed after this. I can't picture him having a sobbing fit, but I'm not sure that he would sigh and move on, either. We might have a repeat of panel 8. You know, something I've been wondering about with Adrian and Diane - did he ever even know Diane's bioMom was pregnant? If it was a one-night stand, he might not have. If it was a relationship, on the other hand, even if the child wasn't his, I have to wonder why Diane was put up for adoption when Raven was clearly okay with raising children who aren't his (biologically speaking). Makes me wonder if he was allowed to. Given that Arthur J. Arthur doesn't like him, if Arthur was the one in charge when Diane was born, he might have been denied being able to adopt her, and later was only able to adopt Noah because Edward was the one calling the shots by that time.
