    Oft when the summer sleeps among the trees,
    Whispering faint murmurs to the scanty breeze,
    I walk the village round; if at her side
    A youth doth walk in stolen joy and pride,
    I curse my stars in bitter grief and woe,
    That made my love so high and me so low.

    O should she e'er prove false, his limbs I'd tear
    And throw all pity on the burning air;
    I'd curse bright fortune for my mixed lot,
    And then I'd die in peace, and be forgot.

    He even had the tact to not actually say it out loud. I like this guy.

    I was gonna say that the gods could shrink at their will, given how Argent(oo a doggie! Don't pet it dad, you don't know where it's been) is not so small near Odin and Thor and such.

    And Thor is indeed a bufoon-like god, nice.

    Another great comic, but boy am I looking forward to what he and Durkon need to talk about.

    Y'all just got THOR'd!

    Have to say I've been refreshing manically all week.

    Let the endless speculation about Minrah's thing begin.

    Also, Durkon's little smile in the last panel is just the cutest.

    Check this game out! Or at least give it a thumbs up.
    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    Related to Minrah's love life is a high odds bet.

    "There's just a lot going on, and I think it's time you-", I'm guessing he was going to say something like "learned the whole truth" or something like that?

    annoyed Re: OOTS #1135 - The Discussion Thread

    Mkay, Thor casualness annoys me. Please get your crayons out already, big dude!

    Also, why has Minrah been worrying for a while about something Durkon-related? Or is it not specifically Durkon-related but something she's embarrassed about in general?

    That is... entirely how we should have expected Thor to be, and yet it still somehow comes as a surprise. Nice :)

    That was classy across the board. Also, good shrinking animation with him picking them up in the glove to neatly set them down, although the loss of detail on the fur cuffs and boots saddens me.

    It's the beard that saddens me most. That thing looked luscious.

    Apropos of nothing I just want to say I really admire the panel layout in the middle row.

    Also that title.

    it probably isnt related to durkon but she still doesnt want him to hear about it. probably a personal thing.

    I’m going to guess she’s gay or I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.
    Nale is no more, he has ceased to be, his hit points have dropped to negative ten, all he was is now dust in the wind, he is not Daniel Jackson dead, he is not Kenny dead, he is final dead, he will not pass through death's revolving door, his fate will not be undone because the executives renewed his show for another season. His time had run out, his string of fate has been cut, the blood on the knife has been wiped. He is an Ex-Nale! Now can we please resume watching the Order save the world.

    I'm not getting the joke about Thor'd, but looking at the pose, I'd guess is something related to the "Jesus is cool" meme/trope, maybe?
