  1. Scrutinizer says:

    So, what now? Is Alice going to rappel down to the drill on one of those ropes to save Charlie?

    • mvandinter says:

      Rappelling in a long dress? Sounds tricky. I somehow doubt Charlie would like the idea of being saved by Alice.

  2. wnp says:

    Alice would not make a very good Mary Poppins. I would expect to meet her together with Philo again sometime. Charlotte has to do something extra-ordinary yet.

    AAAAnd THERE’s the Roddy we’ve all come to know and loathe….
    “Shame about Charlotte.” – brrrrr! That boy is COLD!

  4. Uhl says:

    No Roddy, you’re not an idiot like the professor. You’re a whole new breed of idiot. I don’t know if Darwin exists in your universe, but if he does, he’s polishing a nice, shiny award for you.

    • mvandinter says:

      “Professor” was and wasn’t a typo. It had read “precessor” but was supposed to say “Predecessor”. It’s fixed now anyway. Sorry.

  5. Kelvin Zero says:

    You know, he is in a perfect position to be pushed into the hole by someone coming from behind…

  6. DLB says:

    That kid is a complete sociopath.

  7. das-g says:

    Nepal, eh? Will you be working on disaster relief?

    • mvandinter says:

      As much as a webcomic can bring relief to disaster victims, that’s the amount I’m working on.

  8. Aslandus says:

    End of chapter 1? Are the chapters going to keep getting shorter until chapter 10 is only 3 pages long?

    • Thorin Schmidt says:

      Yes, but for every 10 page reduction, there will be a subsequent extension of time required to produce it. This is according to the Law of Energy/Mass Conservation, so, by reducing the mass of pages, you are actually increasing the amount of Author Energy required to produce it. This is why those webcomics who update tri-weekly, or even, *gasp* daily, don’t have the mind-bending story quality that we enjoy here. We are lucky to have an Author who chooses to invest an entire week’s worth of energy to each update….

      • mvandinter says:

        So, what you’re saying is that if I did only one page per year, that one page would be better than all the weekly pages that I would have done put together. I’m all for it. The next update will be May 2016. See ya!

  9. wnp says:

    Weeel.., since the butler is with Philo I have no doubt whatsoever they will be returning. Just how will be the fun part.

    • mvandinter says:

      That sounds likely. Of course, we won’t find out for another year and a half, but that’s the price we pay.

  10. wintermute says:

    Now THAT is a truly large hole!

    • mvandinter says:

      THAT sound wrong. Just wrong. I don’t know why, but I have a bad feeling it. Where ever you’re going with your large hole theory, don’t go there, man! πŸ˜‰

      • wintermute says:

        The internet has ruined you. I meant nothing wrong at all by that. It’s just really, really big πŸ˜‰

    “The new heir to the Earldom of Farthing is not an idiot like his predecessor.”

    Then that little piece of dirt he’s standing on, next to a gigantic unstable hole, crumbles inwards. He’s evidently an even bigger idiot.

    • mvandinter says:

      Hi Ooorah! Thanks for joining us.

      Isn’t is curious that no one commented about where all the dirt and rocks went? One page it was solid ground, and the next there’s a mysterious hole in the universe.

      • wintermute says:

        Oh, you’re right!

        A big giant gopher hole would be harder for Roddy to stand on the edge of though. And look less artistic.
