    I'm starting to think Elan has a negative concentration score. It's so bad that he can't even focus on the subject at hand.

    Still funny, though.

    I guess that's what Elan gets for not concentrating in class.

    But it is such an essential and important question! You do not need to concentrate on it, it is always there at the back of your mind ready to pop out at the most inconvenient moments...

    Going "we didn't crash, I'm awesome at this" after a collision, tells us something about Andi's ego.

    Yeah, maybe. As chief engineer he's not the best choice.

    In the thread for 1063 or 1064, someone predicted that Elan's next mend would be interrupted by the next maneuver. They called it, so a tip of the cap!
    -----------------------------
    So many things to enjoy about this strip:
    1. Helmsman once again calls for a decision when Andi dithers ...
    2. Sound effect of props hitting mountain/glacier/ice. Skrrrrtk!
    3. Flashback to Bard camp which explains why it's so easy for Elan to lose concentration.
    4. Vanilla, the obvious answer.
    5. I'd have hoped for more material in the last three frames, but Rich has often used the "awkward pause" of just facial expressions before. This is a good follow up / emphasis on Elan, the Unconcentrator. (Not to mention the slowly increasing amount of leaking gas ...)


    Good strip, and I once again really enjoy the new art style.
    Thanks, Giant.

    But clouds taste of butter...and tears. Suppose that doesn't strictly rule out vanilla though.

    The nice thing about Bards is that Elan has a lot of Mendings to spare.

    Also, Andi is not going to be in the Order's good books.

    While that's probably true, I doubt Andi cares.

    Never change, Elan.

    That's only on the assumption that turning to port would have resulted in more serious damage or a crash.

    Though I understand your point, of course.
