I love Kin's reaction to Minmax....
Oh Minmax.
No.

I have a few problems deciding who says what from offscreen.
Thaco, Minmax, and Fumbles are off-screen most of the time, and most of them can say either of the offscreen words in the first two panels.
Panels 7,8 same problem....

Anyway, preliminary transcription (might change with more information on who said what):

Alright. Is there anyone who DIDN'T see this coming?

I was kinda hoping a paper dragon would've seemed harmless enough to not bother attacking.

Also, if Kin can tell whats happening, shouldn't Minmax be able to tell that's her familiar? Unless I'm wrong about how true seeing works.

Heck, maybe he'll think some wizard's pretending to be her.

Minmax may be a dunderbutt, but he's not paranoid; there's nothing to suggest a wizard other than possibly Kin is present. And true-seeing will surely kick in if she needs to mourn Parchment's slaying, but he very well might start the next page with a feeling of doing the wrong thing. If not, a retreat back through the crack will hopefully tempt him into chopping at the wall.

That was my thought. Plan B! Retreat to Kin and have MM help her out of her current predicament.

Her facial expression made me LOL... because I've done that expression on many an occasion for both my ex-husband and my daughter. Sigh. :lol:

My line of thought was more like "I ruined things so badly that anything's more likey then her wanting to be around me"

I think you're right though. Speaking of the wall I'm enjoying the mental image of Minmax koolaid manning his way right through it. :lol:

On one hand, he did confess that she dumped him; but I understand that his way of thinking can be mapped with a relatively simple mathematical equation. That is to say, optimism and minimalist thinking are both priorities to inform his beliefs and expectations. That positive outcomes sometimes require more than the most simple thoughts are how he's able to fight smartly; but accusing a desired reunion of being an illusion -even with the reason you said- requires both pessimism and extra thinking. Right now is a good example: in his line of work, creatures -especially in dungeons- are to be slain.

Well, I did see this coming, but figure Parchment will head straight for the crack in the wall. I can totally see Minmax digging at the wall trying to get his 'oh so important XPs'. What I'm not sure about; is the true nature of the wall's enchantment. Is it just to trap and silence its prisoner, or does it have another terror waiting for Kin and whoever tries to rescue her?

Best Outcome - Parchment unfolds and is able to be read "Kin, your love, is behind the wall"

Worst Outcome - MinMax's inability to read gets in the way again ...

Anyone know what the green bug that's on big ears arm? I thought it was the AC shield that we seen fumbles playing with however it's different shape and size. Maybe it changes size and shape to fit user much like rings? Or is it something totally different?

I made a meme... Hoped Tarol would retweet it, but he's likely busy or something.
Anyway, I decided to post it here too...

While I too find it typical of Thunt's writing style for Minmax to accidentally stab Kin through the wall, she's probably smart enough to keep her distance from it.

This is funny, if expected, I just hope that everyone is wrong about it turning tragic with Minmax stabbing Kin.
Hey, I'm writing something. Check it out.

Unlikely.

The first two times, it was "when the serpent becomes your prey" and Forgath was present and, IIRC, being addressed. It could have been just referring to Forgath and Minmax as a team, but I think it's actually super-critical that when Fumbles is talking to Minmax alone it turns into "his" rather than "your."

There's been another development to take into consideration, when it comes to this prophecy.
So far, everyboy seems to take it fro granted that the friends who become enemies are Forgath and Minmax.

We saw Forgath starting to bond with Idle. That will not please Bowst for sure. I can clearly see love fueling hate there...

Yet, "the Serpent" comes into play. And so far the clearest and most obvious "Serpent" would be Kin.

Unless the serpent is simply an analogy for something dangerous and deceitful, people that are like that are often described as serpents. In that case, it could also relate to Junior. Which is incredibly far fetched and I don't think so, but I'm just throwing in some out of the box thinking here.
I feel smart, but I'm pretty sure I'm an idiot.

Actually, it may not be quite so terrible a thing. Kin is still probably full or near full on hitpoints, so a single offhand accidental stab from oblivious hopefully wouldn't kill her outright. And if Minmax nicks her arm, he would feel it too, and maybe he would finally connect the dots like he did before.

Or maybe he would get irrationally angry with the wall that hurts people that stab it and back off or attack harder.

Hey, maybe Kin will figure it out and start prickin herself with a needle to try and get him to figure it out.
The point is to have fun.
