    My one fear about the title has been confirmed. But also, it seems right on the money for Things You Never Noticed, so yeah...

    Actually... there's no proof for that. I was making a joke referring our thread title mainly. I saw the "Wrong Thread" edit text only and couldn't help myself from making the joke. Because I thought it'd be hilarious if indeed that was the case.

    Update: Well I did what I was going to, but didn't yesterday (as I couldn't find it ironically enough) and check the MitD thread. And yes 2 minutes later LadyEowyn posted in the actual MitD thread. I'd call that confirmation.

    The fact it actually happened makes the thread titel worth it just on that alone.

    I don't think I noticed Jirix backing away from Xykon in the first panel of the second page. I assume it's to avoid Xykon's paralyzing touch.

    I think that if you're standing close to someone, and they suddenly fling out their arm, you are likely to flinch. Even if the don't have a paralysing touch.

    How does paralysing touch work, anyway? Is it automatic, i.e. anyone Xykon touches is paralysed, or does he have to deliberately activate it? To put it another way, can he touch someone without paralysing them?

    Yes.

    In panel 3, Redcloak says "no pun intended", but I just realized I don't actually know what pun he made. The only thing Google gives me is Lions Bay, a town of 1300 in British Columbia, but somehow I dont think that's it.

    I finally noticed the parallels between the two times V fought Team Evils forces in Azure City, the first time V clearly sees magic as being the only thing they bring to the table, so when they run out, they turned invisible and ran away. When they attack Xykon, they are placed into a similar position, after losing the soul splices, the only thing allowing them to have a chance of beating Xykon, they turn invisible and go to flee, but this time V realizes the harm that their ego has caused to the Order, Azure City, and their family, and decides to help O-Chul despite the great personal risk to themselves.

    I didn't pick up the complete implications of this when reading it originally, but it now seems a key first step in V's development across the whole next book.

    Uh so when I first found giantitp, it was on the kindle internet browser. Um so I read the comic on that. (Also explains several typos on some of my earlier posts), The kindle does not have colour, hence how I read it without colour. No clue why I waited till now to read it in colour but oh wellll..

    I find that incredibly charming. Like watching a TV series on an old black-and-white set and rediscovering it on a color set... except in the modern age, lol.

    I completely skimmed over the parallels there too, Aidan. Makes that scene even better.

    Yeah it is I guess. It's like being able to enjoy everything all over again but with new things to look for still, I actually kinda recommend it!
    EDIT: Although I will add that Giantitp no longer works on my kindle browser, not sure about other people's kindles, but I think the giantitp kindle browser community is probably fairly miniscule.

    EDIT 2: Just got up to rereading the part that made me think Jirix was blue. https://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0832.html

    Wow. And so the Greg Initiative (panel 4) is also a reference to Lost, and is, at the same time, a reference to Dharma and Greg.

    I always thought The Greg Initiative was a reference to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Initiative from season 4.
