    Default Dan and Mab's Furry Adventure IV: Hey, I like the comic too

    Link to the comic.

    So, I saw that a thread got zapped, and I'm hoping it was for violating thread necromancy rules. Otherwise, I'm screwed.

    I enjoyed the whole mini-arc with Dan providing ad hoc therapy to a godlike being having an emotional breakdown. Before and after, the weird little jokes about Creature "sexuality" provided some good laughs. The little "Boop" was terrific.

    Um... anyone here have actual experience with Furcadia? I thought about joining back in the day, but never got around to trying.

    Oh yea. It was for thread necromancy. You'd think with a subtitle of "45 days is too short", but ...

    Meanwhile we are now up to episode 2000! Woo! Talk it out!

    Oh, I hadn't noticed! Neat.

    I'm once again impressed by the maturity and grace with which this comic is handling its early years, in this case its early portrayal of succubi. The first hundred or so strips were just a manic, joke-driven series of wacky adventures, the later ones... still regard those adventures as canon, and are willing to look at how petty and hateful their actions often were. Every comparable comic I can think of (Sluggy Freelance, say) just shrugged and tacitly regarded its wacky early years as non-canonical.

    Lets not forget in one of the early B&W's, Amber basically had a text comic where she said she could either spend dozens of strips on a point, or ...

    She then proceeded to have an info dump about Alexi's mother.

    Which turned out to be canon, and revisited over dozens of strips :-)

    http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_078.php

    Interestingly, http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_081.php shows that the plotline at that point was the mallet being stolen by the twinks. And later, of course, she "kidnaps" her daughter to say hi.

    Oh my ... Re-read http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_085.php and realize that A- that's Bridget, but Dan doesn't realize it, and Dan's dressed as a female.

    ... Still archive diving, looking for that comic. Found this:

    http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_343.php

    Kira explains the whole "might makes right" to Jyrras. The very source of the current plot to make anti-magic-defense weapons.

    Ohh, and shortly afterwards, http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_367.php

    Found it!
    http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_405.php

    A black-and-white Q&A strip about Destania and Edward.

    So ...

    Did Destania ever love anyone, really?

    We may find out real soon now.

    She probably did, at one time... before the rest of the clan was killed.

    Then the series of events with Fa'lina and Cyra ... well.

    Oh, snap, Dan offers some actually decent advice to A which relies on something he learned from his father. The end is nigh!

    Every comic with a warp aci is a good comic.

    I just finished reading the Abel's Story spinoff. It's quite good and worth a read on it's own, and I think it answers your question.

    Namely, I think Destania did love Aniz at one point.

    Apparently, so is Jyrras. Especially if some of Amber's ... sketches become canon.

    Still, given the magical environment, it does make you wonder how well he healed.

    If I remember correctly, wings are HARD to heal on Cubi.

    No, 'heal' isn't so much what they're doing.

    They have nothing to work with, so they're regenerating them entirely.

    IIRC there was something in Abel's Story about how morphing wings can be dangerous if you turn them into something breakable.

    But I agree, I am looking forward to seeing Abel again.

    Or something that could be damaged in some way.

    Wasn't so much the wings, as just parts of the body. Cause it makes them more vulnerable.

    So http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_2015.php and http://missmab.com/Comics/Vol_2016.php seem to be trading insults among ... What's the equivalent of "friends" for people you tolerate?

    Jyrras is upset at Kria, and Kria points out that she's just being competent at her job. Then Kria manages to get Jyrras self-conscious in a really low blow.

    Yeah, the "low blow" got a laugh from me.

    The slower update schedule does seem to have improved the comic's visual quality a bit. The composition of the last few comics seems more dynamic than before.

    Win/win.

    So, do you think she prefers the one that benefits her city, or the one with personal emotional desire for raw destruction!?

    I think she prefers a situation that benefits her city via raw destruction.

    I like the subtle nod, in the first panel, to Jyrras' knowledge that the fairies are responsible for his award.

    Right, but she doesn't seem to acknowledge the possibility that it go "go horribly wrong" in a way that involves an ancient dragon killing her personally.

    I caught it, but I probably would have missed it on an archive binge, if I wasnt seeing them as they came out, with plenty of time to look at each one as I wait for the next.

    The visual aid plus punchline were a good device to make a name memorable. The more characters a story has (and DMFA has lots), the harder it gets to introduce new ones, without them immediately falling into a memory hole.

    Ahh yes.

    Remember, if you are asking for help, make sure the person you are asking knows who to help.

    It's like asking a doctor for help, only to find that they are going to help torture. Asking your daughter for help dealing with the interaction between father and uncle might turn up some daddy hate issues.

    Or, at least, what they'd consider 'help' in regards to the situation.

    You know, the simple things. Stepping on the fingers of someone hanging onto a ledge, killing someone when they're screaming in pain...
