Hee! Yeah! :)

Though, I think poor Portia's suffered quite a bit by now. Perhaps at some later date Stillwell will re-open the wound with hilarious result. :)

Fawn's turning out to be rather popular, actually. I'm a little surprised, myself!

You shouldn't be surprised at all, Matt. So far, Fawn has been nice, cordial, sympathetic and responsive to the attentions of the main character, Yerzle. The only other recurring female in the strip is bossy, condescending, aloof and rude. Gee, I wonder who the fanboys like? :roll:

Fawn is definitely being portrayed as a much more pleasant and easygoing individual; she certainly seems like a much better match for Yerzle than Portia does at this point.

Why not complicate the cast further, and have her sign up as a regular member of the group? Given the regular disasters the group meets, I'm sure that the services of a competent alchemist (healing potions, you know!) would be handy. ;)

Check this strip, Andrick. That should explain everything.

erg... As if the group wasn't big enough already! Still, it's a thought.

Who said anything about her being competent? You've seen the skill levels of the others, right? :wink:

Wouldn't that make her competent by comparison? Image

Portia wasn't supposed to wind up the harpy she has become.... :(

I guess that I think of her the way that she was originally written, instead of the character that she has evolved into. The good thing, though, (for me, at least) is that Portia is beginning to look at her behavior in ways she hadn't before. She can still save herself, no?

I think she can. :)

I certainly hope she will!

It's just that now Fawn seems like a nice gal, I hope she doesn't get hurt!

Ah, but isn't getting hurt part of maturing? Pain, loss and grief do wonders for causing a person to stop being childish. Hardship and reflection upon such makes for a wiser person and one which is respectful of others. If anything, this could be the start of a change in Portia.

We've already seen a change in Yerzle, though he still has a ways to go to be the heroic leader arch-type. In much the same way will I expect to see Stillwell evolve and possibly Sashi. Dozer, on the other hand, already has his diploma in the School of Hard Knox, knows his shortcomings and is confident in his abilities; in other words he is the arch-type of the wizened guardian angel.

If THAT was supposed to have been an apology then there should be another panel added to today's comic with her outside and the door slamming shut!

Please, please let Yerzle just turn around and say, "Look, we can talk about this tomorrow. Goodnight, Portia." This isn't about pettiness or revenge on his part; Portia is intruding on Fawn and Yerzle about something that can wait. Something even Portia knows can wait.

She knows she screwed up, she even went to Dozer to get some advice and she still couldn't swallow enough of her pride to apologize. Yerzle had it right, the no-longer-a-princess needs to try harder.

Actually i think that because you can get us (your audience Matt) so involved in the development and growth of your characters I tend to see this as agood thing.
