    Yay deer!

  2. bookwyrm says:

    I just hope he’s not a hunter… *cough*

  3. Dawn says:

    Isn’t Herne a god? And deer + hyena = trouble.

  4. Well, looks like somebody DID smell a deer!

  5. Aelfwine says:

    Oh, interesting. The plot doth thicken!

  6. Eman says:

    This will play havoc on poor Shadowchild. A deer that talks!

  7. Rags says:

    Okay, now they just have to ditch the kid, and it’ยจs basically “Inherit the Earth”. ;-p

  8. Ysabet says:

    **blinkblink** Okay, how many people stared at this and involuntarily said “Oh dear…”? **raises hand**

  9. Kitty says:

    Herne the hunter is either a god or a cursed ghost. depending on you pick of literature.

  10. annie says:

    Herne is indeed a god, though maybe not in this story.

  11. RhiLeeReally says:

    Oh Deer…..

  12. Domino says:

    Ysabet….*raises hand*

  13. Jon says:

    I thought “Dear lord, there’s an earthly use for a deer. Oh, and poor Shadowchild. This CANNOT end well…I’ll get the popcorn.”

  14. ShadoCat says:

    Ysabet – That’s right where I went too.

  15. Gr0wl says:

    Is Herne related to Eland in any way?

  16. Eugene says:

    It’s a Deer Man!!

  17. Tom Long says:

    This is going to cause so many kinds of trouble…

  18. Zeynep says:

    I didn’t say “Oh, dear.”

    I _did_ say something stronger, though with the same flavour…

  19. TekServer says:

    Yeah, my first thought was along the lines of “Shadowchild is going to be SO confused … ”


  20. Sammi says:

    Not to mention what Digger’s going to go through when she realizes the same thing.

  21. Mad Luc says:

    ….TAlkInG DeEr?! So.. confused… DAMN YOU URSULA!!

  22. fishboy says:

  24. Serenity says:

    Herne is generally a Celtic/Pict god of the forest and the hunt.

  25. autumnkeeper says:

    I would bet my money on Herne if Grim-Eyes decided to get “hungry”.

  26. BunnyRock says:

    I just handed in a report on Red Deer mtDNA in Scotland. i thought, relax, have a few beers, go on the internet where you wont have to think about any large cervids again… dang.

    In Hind site (feel free to throw stuff) I may have had one to many beers if I forgot this was coming in the course of my re-reading.

  27. TekServer says:

    > In Hind site (feel free to throw stuff) …

    You’re forgiven. We know it came from the hart.


  28. Sildraug says:


    …I’m kind of disappointed nobody else seems to have caught the reference. Although they still need a moose. Assuming Grim Eyes works as a fox.

  29. Absconding_Cascade says:

    dear god(s) the fallout from this is going to make the aftermath of a colbolt bomb detonation look like a sunny flower filled meadow.

  30. Pangolin says:

    @Rags & Sildraug:

    That’s exactly what I thought.

  31. Lycanthromancer says:

    My first thought was, “Oh deer lord, this can’t end well.”

  32. Naler says:

    Well, Shadowchild is going to have FUN with this guy.
    “Sir, you’re a deer that TALKS, right?”

  33. I LOL’d…

    in the blink of an eye, we go from the Indian sub-continent to Gwynedd province in Wales… this comic makes me so HAPPY!!!

  34. Deraekan says:

    Henre! your making grimeyes drool!

  35. Elkian says:

    Oh, he and Grim Eyes are going to get along like a house on fire.


    XD Shadowchild and talking deer!

  36. JET73L says:

    As in Herne the Hunted?

    Yes, yes, Herne was an antlered god of the hunt and the forest, but… Can no one else honestly say that wasn’t at least tied for the first thing they thought of upon reading the name?

    Hmm… A mute deer-human that spoke with sign language would really throw Shadowchild for a loop, though since normal deer are typically incapable of sign language it might not consider it a deer, and consider it a one-thing like itself.

  37. AngelicDirt says:

    Oooooh… talking deer. I love when you realize that something was foreshadowing. ๐Ÿ˜›

  38. BunnyRock says:

    @Rags & Sildraug: I always quite liked Inherit the Earth. Need to look it up again.
