    Aha, and so the plot thickens!

  2. Eugene says:

    She knows their names encyclopedically, but of their histories, nothing.

  3. Mani says:

    That last panel is one of the better renditions I have seen of one of those “CLICK!” moments.

  4. TekServer says:

    The thought plickens …


  5. BunnyRock says:

    She may have known their histories, in fact i would be shocked if she did not, but she may just not twigged when the slug mentioned “the bones of the sea” . It’s a pretty obscure way to refer to an ammonite.

    Bloody prophesy.

  6. Walt says:

    It’s funny that Mani said that because I clicked my fingers right after I saw that last panel without really thinking about it.

  7. Murasaki says:

    “The bones of the sea” could also have been coral, so it was an honest mistake.

  8. werepixi says:

    the slug was only passing on the prophecy from the aspen, I never did trust aspen’s

    I’m probably barking up the wrong tree, I should just leaf it alone

    Darn, I didn’t even connect the bones of the sea to the ammonite, I was thinking more like Chalk, which is the still-calciferous remains of such things as nautilus shells (yay for The Wee Free Men putting me in a misleading mindset!) or more literal bones, like a dead… god… *glances at comic tagline* …of or in the sea… hrm…

    This is my second read-through, and I still didn’t see it coming.

    Werepixi, you’re on thin ice there buddy.

    I’ll just go out here and say I missed it, possibly from too much Pratchett. ^_^ I was expecting chalk.
