    Sombrero wearing bird. Well that's a new one.

    But a nice insight to V. Thanks for the new regular posts, Giant.

    Is Inkyrius the name of V's mate?
    I admire Blackwing good sense.

    Panel 4: Excellent I shall eat in the library, then, to take best advantage of the silence.

    Having seen some very chatterish kids in my time, I can appreciate the sentiment of wanting silence.

    On the other hand, V could have simply bought some item of silence.

    I hope V will send a message (via sending) to his/her mate to explain why and to apologise. If V only signs the form, his/her family may construe that as he/she not caring about them

    Well, those of us arguing that the divorce was based on normal issues, not the earth-shaking events, seem to have won a point or two here.

    This does close out one way to get the party involved with the previous generation, but perhaps that would have been too much complication anyway.

    A possibility...

    And Vaarsuvius continues to prove that V really has developed as a character.

    Blackwing has been pretty chatty as of late, I guess.

    V did the right thing. I feel sorry for him/her, but I totally agree with his/her decision.

    I keep liking Blackwing more and more with every strip

    I love that we're getting further development on V's character. Blackwing and his insight into V is brilliant. He's shaping up to be a great team member.

    i have to wonder, could V contest the divorce even if he wanted to?

    anyhow, it's a somewhat noble gesture, though i have to wonder what his kids will think of all this.

    Its soooo sad, though at the same time, V is being very wise....... I don't see how (s)he can simply give up just like that . At least cast some sending spells or something, if (s)he just explain, then maybe just maybe.

    Can't say V's decision is unexpected. The story can't exactly run off to Elf land for a long, tiring divorce trial, after all.

    Ahhh, V. To save his family, he ended up losing it. Here's to hoping he can set things to right somewhat when the world has been saved and all...assuming he doesn't die horrifically, of course.

    Great comic, I laughed at the last panal quite a bit.

    Poor V, I hope it works out for him. Putting the his family and the fate of the world before himself should hopefully redeem him in some peoples eyes.

    This is the noblest thing V could have done. I only hope (s)he takes the time to explain h**self to h** family at some point.

    I think this is the best evidence so far that Vaarsuvius is male. Men are more likely to be oblivious when their mate is making an effort.

    You are so reasonable when not provocked or under stress...
