I have been waiting to get to this scene for YEARS. An embarassingly long time. I didn’t always know what was was going to be said, but I knew the ghost scene was somewhere on the horizon. Like Ed’s story and the revelation about the tail of the peacock, it’s been one of the touchstones I used to steer the plot.

Having reached it–well, gang, this is kind of the beginning of the end sequence. I mean, Digger still has a good chunk left to run–I suspect we’re looking at close to another year, if not more, since I always seem to run long (remember that I expected Digger to be less than a hundred pages long once!)–but having reached this scene, we’re definitely barreling towards the climax and picking up speed.

Remember Tunnel 17!

    rikchik: I think they’re ignoring what the ghost has to say because it *isn’t* really saying anything.

    Yay for endings — WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many webcomics go on ad infinitum, getting worse with each passing strip. Sad.

    I’m with the CD of the GW. Its very important that trusses (of all types) continue to hold up that which needs holding. (Phew – managed to dodge that ending-with-a-preposition thing.)

    Ending with a proposition:
    Ya wanna?

    This ghost reminds me greatly of the dark mother legends that Murai’s peers… created, or believed into being. Theogenerated.

    Now I am conflicted. Digger may be over recently, but it may have tun even longer than Ursula thought it might, and both reaching the end of the archived strips and reaching the end of the story fill me with dread and sadness!

    *wishes on a star for Ursula to be inspired to write a Digger sequel*

    I don’t remember anything about a tail of a peacock. I’m gonna have to buy the book so that I can read it quickly enough to keep more of it in mind.

    @Tamfang: on the very slim chance that you still have Digger comments in your rss reader (or even still have an rss reader), the tail of the peacock thing was where they fell down the crevasse and Murai broke her arm.
