    And I should say that all my headscratching isn’t meant as whining. It sure as hell isn’t meant as “Ursula sucks!”–which I could see it sounding like to someone, given Internet facelessness and all. Even if it turns out that Ursula just plain forgot what the room looked like, I still love the story, and Ed is awesome, and remember tunnel seventeen!

  2. Matt says:

    Okay, now I don’t sound dumb here but where did we read that the cold servants work for SGV? So far all I’ve seen is that they try and keep everyone away form the body and the heart. But I don’t remember ever seeing anything saying that they were the “bad” guys.

    What if some of the theories are correct and taking out the heart will set SGV free and the cold servants are really just guardians that go to very extreme measures?

    Please be nice.

    Flawed link? That clinches it: *must* be a recent patch-up…… not even Dwarves would accept such shoddy workmanship…… 7@=Q

    Swing that crow bar Ed.

  5. The_Rippy_One says:

    Lucius – you just made this go fridge brilliant! Ursula, you magnifenct *person*, we’ve read your book!

    …And it is awesome…

    Someone’s loo-hoo-hoooosing…

    I’m with Marc Antony cheering for that Big Damn Heroes moment.

    We know SGV can’t get too far away from the heart. And the monastery where they encountered it before is pretty far off the beaten track. So I’m guessing SGV is kind of out of practice in dealing with anything other than his servants, and he’s a bit rusty at proper temptation techniques. And he’s offering the sort of standard devil’s wages – revenge, luxury, power – and making the usual devil’s mistake of not realizing that not everyone wants those things. Ed has certainly never wanted revenge from those who ate his name – he understood that a price had to be paid, and he was the logical one to pay it. And he seems perfectly happy in his own little cave, with plenty of wall space to paint on – just as long as he occasionally gets some company.

    And I don’t think the heart is all _that_ high up – isn’t it still more or less in the proper position in what remains of He-Is? Who is, granted, bigger than your standard hyena – but maybe by a factor of 10, not 1000 or so.

    I think.

    … and I’m cheering the presence of “Firefly” fans …. 🙂

    For those unfamiliar with this tragically short-lived show, here’s the reference being…. referenced:


    Mal: “Well, look at this! Appears we got here just in the nick of time. Whaddya suppose that makes us?”

    Zoe: “Big damn heroes, sir.”

    Mal: “Ain’t we just!”


    Count me in as well; I would love to see Shadowlescent again in any case, and Digger and Ed could probably use the assist anyway (although…. maybe not desperately 😉 ).

    Also hoping that, up above, Murai is OK. Jhalem could always have chosen… badly. I’m still a bit worried about all that.

    I just found this comic about a week ago, and only just today finally reached the current comic. I just wanted to say I love it!

    Will the finished version be available in print? I noticed in the author comments that individual chapters are being sold, but will there be anything purchasable for us latecomers?

  10. Creatura says:

    I’m not much worried for how Ed will get down from there, I’m worried about the likely Collapsing Lair scenario.

  11. AngelicDirt says:

    Go, Creatura. Everyone knows He-is and SGV are acting as a Load-bearing Boss. With at least two forms. Three, if Sweetgrass is as sore a loser as he sounds.

  12. We could always give Ed the name Dances With Crowbar.
