Just thought I should put some of the scene props to use.
She really should be more careful with the random acts of violence. If she accidentally kills him, then she will have to marry the person who is next in line to inherit that family fortune. If she thinks she has it bad now….
What? You don’t like Roderick? But he’s such a sweetheart!
Probably more equal to the task of dealing with her temperament.
At least he is willing!
Ouch. Ouch! and OUCH!
The rating of this conversation is rapidly escalating 🙂
You mean we’re approaching PG? Do you think I should go for the R?
I think Charlie should start thinking of get out of line of fire, both verbal and balistical 🙂
Now I understand Philo saying this is a dangerous place for a child… with them!!
About the rating, well, it depends on how Philo is going to phrase his reply, and perhaps the point of view if Alice decides to jump at him over the table 🙂
It’s a mug’s game.
Between “Philo and ME.” I’m sure she has a grasp of proper grammar, as with so much else….
Sincere thanks, Nomi! (refresh to see fixed version)
Shouldn’t the correcter phrase be “Philo and I.”? ‘Me’ tends to go first
Guesticus needs an award because he’s right as well. Spoken dialogue doesn’t necessarily have to follow prose rules. As for my poor proofing, that’s inexcusable!
Hey, hi. Glad to see you over here too 🙂
(this do not nest the comments!)
Intended to be reply to Guesticus.
Sorry about the comment nesting. It’s not broken. It’s just that the WordPress template this is built on top of doesn’t support sub-nesting. My CSS skills are limited, but I’ll see if I can come up with a work-a-round.
Hope you do not mind…
I know nothing about WordPress but a quick search give me a couple clues.
…it seems that you do have “nested comments” active (they have the “reply” buttom), in that case the problem is that there are no indented… (MESSAGE ABBREVIATED)
Thanks for looking into it, NotFred. I’ll take a look. I hope you don’t mind that I abbreviated your text here. Don’t worry, I saved the original 🙂
That’s one resilient cup.
It’s a metal cup based on the sort used aboard ships of a certain era. At least that’s the idea I was working with.
I like the detail of the flat bottomed mug, I recognised it as being a ‘boat mug’. I imagine it would be quite difficult to drink the last bit though.
I assume the wide bottom was for stability at sea, but I see the problem with drinking from it. I’m now picturing sailors wearing baby bibs to catch spillage.
I am going to guess that eventually it will be shown Alice wants him for more than just his money. She wants his furniture too.
Poor Alice. I’m not sure she even wants Philo’s money, let alone his furniture. He’s got a pretty good butler. That might sweeten the deal.
And his family jewels.
Um… I mean the diamonds, emeralds and carnelians etc.
Prediction: The mug ricochets off of Philo’s (admittedly hard) head, lands on the “Start” button (and damages the mechanism, thereby preventing the occupants of the vehicle from stopping it), and we begin our incredible adventure! There’s no stopping now!
Ooh, early but nice, I was just guessing what kind of event would trigger it.
However I will bet to the aftermath of Roddy pranking Godfrey.
PS: Greeting from Case 😉
You guys are making me feel guilty 😉 As long as that word “Prologue” appears in the header, you’re not likely to see the plot move forward.
NotFred: Hehe 😉 Wonder what Molly’s up to these days?
Next on my to-do list: Hack web site and change header….
Brilliant plan!!! How can I help?
Excellent! – another recruit to my devious plan! Most important rule: Whatever you do, don’t tell the guy that runs this site – I hear he’s trying to make the Guinness record for longest Prologue.
Slight spelling/grammar problem in panel one: “But try you keep it to yourself for once”.
Fixed! I apologize for my proofing ineptitude. Let’s blame Daylight Saving Time 😉
Not as good as two heads being bonked together, but it’s a start 😀
So, ‘Gack!’ is Charliese for ‘Klunk the idiot in the head!’?
‘Gack!’ is Charliese for ‘Uh oh, my sister’s about to go off the deep end again!”
That works, but it seemed more like Charlie was giving Alice the go ahead (not that she probably could have stopped her anyway :P)
Mug uses tackle
It’s super effective
‘Mug uses tackle’? I couldn’t find the definition on Urban Dictionary, but it sounds unseemly.
Search for ‘It’s super effective’ 😉
Aha! Apparently, it’s a Pokemon thing.
Fail for me on the Pokemon reference. Yet another demonstration of how out-of-touch I am: So much so that I’m making a comic set in Regency-era England!
I found this while my regular web comic is on Hiatus, and wow. Thank you so much for this regency awesomeness!
On another note, it should be added to everyone’s common sense that one should not accuse someone of marrying for money in the third person when that person is across the table with a mug and lethal aim.
Always happy to have new readers 🙂 Welcome Silentreader!
P.S. What was the comic that went on hiatus?
The Dreamer. It’s based on the American Revolution. The writer deserves a break, it just gets a little lonely. 🙂
At 500+ pages, I think the author of The Dreamer deserves a good long hiatus!
500+ pages – wow! that’s a lot of pages. he must be almost done with his “Prologue” by now. 😉
You know, I didn’t think of it until I started reading the comments, but it suddenly occurs to me there are other things that mug can hit on the rebound. Things like levers, dials, … the start button! 🙂
Is that a giant red button labeled “Do Not Press This Button”?
The button you’re looking for is next to your F1 key 😉
I’m still looking for this “Any” key that I’m always being told to press….
Early days of D&D-ing (before fully understood the alignment thing), when ever it said that a class could be “Any Alignment” they tended to be “Neutral Evil” (N E + Any), so now press the ‘N’ key
