    'The encumbrance limit of my sanity'. Gotta love Roy.

    Edit: So is Haley cured, or not?

    Really nice grapple check by Haley. Maybe she's on the long road to an aphasia cure.

    Heheheheh, another hilarious comic.

    I especially like how Haley didn't even say anything, and just started dragging him.

    That was great! I fear Oblivious Elan is not long for this strip... hehehe. Anyway, I loved Haley's smile when she first heard the news.
    Oh, and someone has to write up a spell description for the Power Word: Puppets. It causes all characters within a twenty-foot radius to make a Knowledge: limits of my sanity check and makes rational thought impossible.

    HOORAY!!!!! :D

    EDIT: Okay, now that I got my inital excited response out of my system, it occurs to me that I also want to add the following:

    --Great to see Elan so excited and wide-eyed, so much so that he couldn't even restrain himself from interrupting Hinjo!

    --Loved Roy's sarcasm, as always!

    --Nice grapple check!

    --Haley dragging Elan away was so cute!

    --Elan's reaction to being dragged was great as well!

    --Where is Belkar--and is Hinjo in on the secret, or is that potential trouble?

    --Although I'm sure he won't mind, it's too bad that Elan doesn't get to follow through with an idea that Roy actually thought was good! (I think Elan will be okay, though. ;))

    --Is our star-crossed rogue finally ready to reveal her true feelings? I can't wait to see how the "romantic evening" goes!

    --and, once more... HOORAY!! :D

    EDIT 2: (I'm so excited I can't even post straight today...)

    I loved seeing the whole strip start with just: "PUPPETS!!" :D
    HUMANS....... ARE....... SUPERIORRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But she was naked! And all... articulate!!

    Awww... very sweet.

    It's going to be strange when Hayley can communicate verbally again. Right now, the contrast between her and Elan is striking.

    Opposites attract, I guess.

    After an opening like that, it could have used more puppets, though...

    Most things could use more puppets.

    "Tha poor doomed fool"
    It's not like she could have reasoned him into coming:
    point 1, no talking, point 2, anything in plain English might have confused him as badly.

    Poor Elan...so clueless.

    I've done similar things to my boy on occasion. It's amazing what you can accomplish without any words.

    Ha, Haley is actually making a move. That's pretty bold by comparison to here former actions regarding her feelings.
    Anyway, great comic

    Well, you see, there comes a time in any relationsip where the female realizes that the male just doesn't get the hint...any hint...in which case she is forced to either seduce him or do something similar to what Haley has done :P

    Similtainiously funny and sweet

    Haley doesn't need to say anything. Tone and body language always get far more across than words, I think the figure now is that 90% of communication is non-verbal.
    Everyone makes mistakes. Our fate and our character is not determined by the mistakes we make, but by how we react to them.

    I have a friend who likes to start conversations like that. He has Asperger's, but I don't think that's the full story behind what makes him tick. :D Example:

    TIMMY'S!

    Translated, that means "Would you like to go eat at Tim Horton's?". Of course, I understand this because I know him well, but if anyone else is in the area, they can be highly confused.

    Woo hoo go Haley. Loved the beginning of the strip. What could be better than Elan walking into a room and saying Puppets? Haley dragging Elan away was very cute and funny too.
