    Also, October. She was more shy back then. Even if she would choose vampire - and she would be MUCH more likely to choose "wizard Sarah" - she wouldn't specify "sexy". Probably.

    Wait. Does "wizard Sarah" counts as transformation? I mean, she transform in her fantasy, but that would be hard to explain, as she's only get to be taller and more sexy.

    I wouldn't say Sarah was that much more shy in October than she is now. She had already spent her summer as Tedd's guinea pig, after all. But yeah, there's no way she would have chosen vampire over wizard.

    I don't think "wizard Sarah" counts as a transformation. If Sarah had been around to tell Pandora she would like a spell that turns her into a wizard, that would have been

    1) redundant, because she would have to already be a wizard or a mage to be able to use any spells

    2) impossible, since wizards are born, not made

    3) useless, if it meant she would only get a cool wizard costume whenever she used that spell.

  2. Damn! If only Sarah had been there to answer that question, her hot vampire form could have become canon!

    ...Except for the fact that this happened before the card games. And that Sarah doesn't really even like vampires, she just likes reading vampire smut. *sigh* Never mind...

  3. To quote Sid the Sloth: "This is either really good or really bad."

    So, Pandora realized that her master plan is about to fail and has now decided to fix the damage she's done. Great, but how is she going to do that, exactly? I very much doubt that magic marks can be removed without Awakening their owners. I think all Pandora can do right now is unclog the magic drain, assuming that she's the one who clogged it in the first place, but then what? Will she finally tell Adrian what she's done and ask him to help everyone she's marked? Or will she do something incredibly stupid like try to change the mind of magic?

    Hmm... I was under the impression that Pandora had never reset at all, but clearly I was wrong. She had already reset at least once back when she was getting bored with her current life before she met Blaike all those centuries ago. I assume she spent her first life/lives playing with mortals for fun just like she used to do in this life. Perhaps the only truly noteworthy thing that happened during her previous life was the magic system change.

    Also, it seems that perhaps Tedd is a wizard after all. An unusual wizard, but a wizard nonetheless. Nice, now I can stop calling him a mutant.

    Ah ha, Tedd's "dangerous rarity" must mean that he's not only immune to a system change, but would likely be able to quickly determine what has changed and how to adjust.

    I'm guessing people like Tedd are rare because they'd be a form of safeguard to prevent magic from being completely forgotten. I wonder if they are born at a certain interval, like 1 every century, or only when there is a possibility of a system change.

    It's possible... Or then they are just really, really rare. Like, maybe less than one percent of all wizards are like Tedd, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are in any way tied to magic system changes.

    And so Magic gets what It was really after, a little sit down talk with Pandora via It's Emissary, showing that Pandora isn't the only one who can lay convoluted plans.

    Of course, there is the matter of how will Pandora fix things?  She wants to give her family a changed world, where Magic is used openly, but Magic doesn't want many people using it.  So... let's eliminate a whole bunch of people?  Let's cause a crash in civilization so most people are too busy surviving to learn about magic?  I know, let's blind people so they can't read and release a whole bunch of carnivorous plants, oh wait, that was Day of the Triffids, different Immortal Tantrum.  Just saying, "fixing things" for an Immortal who is Chaotic and perhaps Insane might not be so fun.

    I don't think Pandora is that insane. I still consider her a villain of a sort, but I doubt she would kill everyone she's marked in the past few months just to stop magic from changing. Of course, she's not even allowed to do that and even if she were, there's no guarantee that it would work and she would definitely know that.

    Why didn't Disco Wizard assume that the notes she had from the previous incarnation were themselves preserved from a previous incarnation?

    Disco Wizard most likely knows more about immortals than we do, so perhaps immortals can only remember information from their previous incarnation.

    Assuming that Tedd is one of the "rare type of wizard" who wouldn't be affected by a system change (which seems very plausible), is it possible that just such a change occurred in Lord Tedd's dimension, and helped him become, well, 'Lordly'? I'm doubtful that plot thread will come up again soon, but it strikes me that being virtually the only human left with working knowledge of magic would be a very big advantage if you were interested in rising to power. The chance of other humans being depowered made me question it, but I actually think the only magic users confirmed to be from that dimension were seyunolu (Nioi, and possibly Shade Tail).

    That's a pretty good theory. However, I'd like to point out that Lord Tedd, Nioi and Shade Tail are the ONLY people we've even seen from Lord Tedd's dimension. Well, there's also Kaoli, but we haven't actually seen her in person.

  4. This made me laugh. My sleeping patterns have been completely messed up for weeks - I actually slept through the entire Thursday plus a couple of hours more - but suddenly I feel better knowing that at least I'll never sleep for an entire week. I know it's stupid of me to stay up too long because I know that I'll just end up sleeping the same number of hours I've spent awake no matter what, but I can't help it. There are just too many good cartoons to watch, books to read and forums to write on and absolutely nothing better to do with all my time. :(

  5. Interesting... Of course, I knew Pandora didn't want to hurt Grace from the start, but now she's acting like she's the one who is right and Disco Wizard is the bad guy here. That's probably because she doesn't believe him, but it's still pretty weird how the tables have suddenly turned so completely. What's more, Disco Wizard sees her point. I'm not saying Pandora is lying, but once again she's showing off her manipulation skills.

    Anyway, if these two can keep things civll, perhaps this conversation will be useful to them both. I doubt Pandora will change her mind about her plan, but that's just because I think she will simply refuse to believe anything Disco Wizard tells her. Disco Wizard, on the other hand, might learn things that he can later tell Grace or someone else to help them stop Pandora, assuming that Pandora won't lie to his face about everything he asks her, of course.

    Didn't Pandora once put Adrian in danger to teach him a lesson?


    15 minutes ago, PSadlon said:

    No she put his students in danger after Adrian had put himself in Danger. She has put Noah in danger however. I guess wards don't count to her.

    In short, she has put a lot of people in danger and didn't care. I can feel sorry for her because of her past, but that doesn't mean I can forgive some of her actions. If she had reset, she would have been more reasonable and warned Adrian about Abraham's attack, even though Adrian saw it coming himself. As for Noah, I still don't get what she would have gained from his death, so I must assume she just wanted entertainment. Still, surely she knew that Noah couldn't beat the dragon because she was cheating by giving Dex so much power that the dragon couldn't be unsummoned, so maybe she really did mean for Noah to die or she simply didn't care.

  6. I suggested Téa the Magic Tea Shop Girl as a joke, but I suppose she really could be Greg's girlfriend, assuming that Dan hadn't decided who the girlfriend should be before he designed Téa. However, I have a feeling that the magic tea isn't exactly canon, so Téa would be just a regular tea shop girl in the comic if we got to see her with Greg.

    I think Magus was referring to himself as Ellen's father in the similar manner that people were teasing Elliot about being Ellen's mother. Because it was Magus that amplified Tedd's emotions to get him to zap Elliot in the first place.

    Isn't that exactly what I said?

    5 hours ago, Scotty said:

    Magus is Elliot's alternate because Terra, whom Magus was seem sparring with, is Tedd's alternate. Terra apparently developed her wizard powers as expected though.

    ...Wow. I can't believe I never noticed how much Tedd and Terra look alike. Still, has it been confirmed by Dan that she is his alternate, or is it just highly likely?

    ... waaait. How could he break the TF Gun? I think he just used the opportunity of broken TF Gun to amplify Tedd's anger. I mean, the gun was likely broken even before Tedd used it on Elliot and that use "finished" it, similarly how it broke because of having too little power when Tedd transformed Sarah in "incident".

    Hmm, maybe, but I'm sure Magus had already planned Ellen's creation long before that. Also, he was working with Pandora at the time, so maybe she broke the gun somehow.

    I favor a crescent moon, a bow-and-arrow, or both. Why? Well, Diane is a form of Diana, the Roman goddess of the moon and the hunt. Artemis is her Greek counterpart, as any classically educated person or any of the much more common Sailor Moon otaku already knows.

    It also suggests that while Susan always has the hammers, Diane might have a ranged attack. I find it easier to imagine Diane as a stealthy sniper than another hammer queen.

    Good suggestion. However, like it's already been mentioned, the shapes of the magic marks really don't matter and the marks also disappear once their owners awaken. They're not like MLP's Cutie Marks.

    Anyway, I agree with you about Diane possibly having a ranged attack. I could see her with a spell that lets her shoot magic arrows at vampires, and maybe also different magic arrows at boys that will make them attracted to her. That is, unless she's matured past that by then.

  9. This was easy to predict, but damn, the way Blaike died was still a shock. I agree with all of you who theorize that the wolf monster that killed Blaike was the one created from the Dewitchery Diamond. It would certainly explain why Pandora seemed to hate Abraham so much and wanted him dead so badly.

    Next we might see Pandora go on a rampage and kill the monster herself despite it going against immortal rules. However, I bet the other immortals will go easy on her because they know why she did what she did. Immortals falling in love with humans might be rare, but it's clearly not forbidden, so immortals must understand love. Pandora certainly loved Blaike and she probably still loves Adrian just as much as she did when he was a kid, she's just much worse at showing it these days.

    Has anyone else caught on that Magus is the alternate version of Elliot from his own universe? Why else would any hope of getting "his" body back depend on Elliot and Ellen?

    Or maybe he's the alternate version of Elliot's father. He did call himself Ellen's father at one point. Of course, he may not have meant it literally, since it was him who planned Ellen's birth when he amplified Tedd's anger and broke the TF Gun after Tedd had zapped Elliot, but it's still a theory as good as any.

  11. A magic lion bear? What is this, ATLA?

    Also, Blaike has some nice clothes, so I'm assuming he was rich. I learned from the previous comic thread that only rich people had decent clothes several centuries ago.

    On the "how old Immortals tend to look" thing, I think that it's mostly a matter of "You are as old as you feel". An Immortal may choose to look elderly in order to convey wisdom and gravitas--Jerry had that "everybody's favorite uncle" air about him right before his reset, while Pandora uses a child form to convey playfulness and lack of concern for consequences.

    I agree. Helena and Demetrius most likely felt old so they looked old, or then they chose to look old so they would look more convincing to Susan and Nanase. After all, everyone knows that old people are wise and trustworthy.

    Only six panels in, and already I'm invested in this ship! (Helps that Raven is one of my favorite characters)

    I'm calling it now that the reason Pandora didn't reset at 200 like she probaby should have is because she had a son to take care of, and Raven's father was dead or otherwise incapacitated or incapable. 

    Or then she simply didn't want to lose her memories of Blaike like I suggested before. Either that, or she wanted to become more powerful than any other immortal in order to protect her son from every possible danger.

    I hope Adrian's father is going to fall in love with her too and not something darker, but with this comic things don't usually get very dark, they mostly get very cute, so I'm not too worried.

    I hope by "something darker" you mean that Blaike could have married Pandora just so she could get him everything he could ever want instead of implying that he forced her into anything, because frankly, I don't see that even being possible. Pandora is intelligent and extremely powerful and immortals are allowed to defend themselves against mortals, so I don't see how Blaike could possibly have forced her into anything or abused her in any way. Also, if he had, I don't think she would have kept his last name. Nope, I bet there's only cuteness ahead (until Blaike's death, that is).

    People are implying they think this is a previous life pandora? I'm pretty sure it's the same one, and that the reason she hasn't reset is because of her son. If I'm wrong this has to be even further in the past...

    Uh... I don't recall anyone implying that they think this is Pandora in her previous life. If anything, we've been making theories about why she chose to not reset and yes, I think Adrian is one of the best guesses. Perhaps something happened to him in his youth and Pandora decided to look after him better with all the extra power she would gain over the centuries.

    "Evil" may be debatable, but if Sarah turned vampire she would became aberration, which is not good idea. Super speed, strength, flight and this look, well, why not, would be likely similar to Not-tengu monster form in the "how much evil is that" sense, and he wasn't aberration and noone even commented he's on way to became one.

    Hypnosis ... first, I don't think Sarah would want that. Second, that is sort of power with pretty short list of non-evil uses.

    So I guess that's a no, then. I know Not-Tengu wasn't an aberration, but I suppose only truly evil people can get spells to turn into monstrous forms like his. It seems Sarah's awesome vampire form is stuck in fantasies and pinups.

    Btw, hypnosis can be used for good. It could be used for interrogating criminals or putting armed assailants to sleep or stuff like that.

  13. We finally get to know some of Pandora's backstory and you all talk about Susan and Diane. Figures.

    I definitely see where this is going. Pandora will decide to have a child as her legacy before resetting, but something unexpected will come up that will make her not want to reset after all. Maybe she will fall in love with Adrian's human father for real and never want to lose her memories of him? Or perhaps something will happen to Adrian that will make Pandora want to keep her identity forever so she could better protect him with all her extra strength and wisdom? That latter one seems like a very unselfish reason for losing one's sanity and becoming increasingly more bored with everything, so it might well be good enough a reason for Pandora. However, if she still just wants to remember her lover who's been dead for centuries, then I personally think that's not a very good reason to lose one's marbles for, especially since she will eventually put everyone around her at risk.

    Also, I like that dragon. Burninate them peasants, Trogdor!

  14. Everyone saw this coming, but that doesn't make it any less exciting. So we'll get to see both Susan and Diane and Magus and Sirleck in this chapter? Nice.

    On 4.7.2016 at 1:56 AM, ijuin said:

    A thought on Magus: his plan apparently involves Ellen zapping Elliot with her FV5 beam and Magus riding it into Elliot's body, and then splitting himself from Elliot (possibly involving the Dewitchery Diamond). Given what we know of the TF beams and the Diamond, wouldn't this leave Magus' new default form as a girl form?

    Uh, why do you assume Elliot wouldn't change back long before Magus could make him touch the DD? Surely Ellen would zap Elliot back as soon as Magus stopped amplifying her emotions and then she would have no idea why she zapped him in the first place. Also, I have a feeling that it wouldn't matter if Elliot were transformed while touching the Diamond under Magus's control. I bet the Diamond would think that separating the mind controlling Elliot's body from him is more important than creating another sister for him. And even if I'm wrong, then surely Magus is smart enough to force Elliot to stay in his default form while touching the Diamond.

    On 4.7.2016 at 1:05 AM, hkmaly said:

    Right ... soo, Elliot by Magus, Magus by Sirleck, Sirleck by Voltaire, Voltaire by Pandora. We have 5. Anyone can prolong to 6?

    Well, we have no real proof that Voltaire is being manipulated by Pandora. He is clearly working against her, and even though Pandora probably could find a way to somehow make him work to her advantage, we don't even know if she's aware of Voltaire yet.
