I knew that's all Big Ears needed. Now I hope Thaco will say something to the effect of, "We're doing this for the serpent-girl, the human just wants it the most. DEAL with it."

Furthermore, It was previously lamented that we never got to see what those figures with the glowing orbs were all about. Well to free her, M'GAP now has that honor.

And I'm sure they'll have more work with getting past them than Kin did.
Seems like a trap.
One member of a party exploring, getting caught and unable to scream for help, making the rest of the party waste precious time finding out the party member needs help, and where it may be found.

Now let's hope when backtracking they won't encounter Kore, event hough ore should've fallen down somewhere deep, but so far that guy has shown a cunning ability to survive.

Am I the only one a little creeped out by the hair sniffing thing? I'd understand it if MM and Kin were a couple that, uh, knew each other's bodies well, but the idea of MM smelling her hair while they were adventuring platonically is incredibly weird.

I'm sure that if she was standing in front of him, her scent would be easier to discern. However, the hair is small and could be mistaken for a thread, so sniffing it differentiates between the two.

What I find sweet is that he saved the hair in his Ring of Holding.

Sure is sweet, but eeeeerm, where is he keeping it? See the first few panels? All fingers, no missing parts due to being inside the ring. So I posit the following: he's using it for his little gentleman...

Look closer at the panel before the ring appears.

Given that you need to keep a finger in the ring to wear it, he probably has it in a pocket to better grip Oblivious no matter which hand he grabs it with.

Remember that run carrying an injured Kin through a blazing forest, to save her life?

Well, Minmax sure does. It's not weird, it's a sign of how much he cares about her that he knows her scent instantly, instinctively. It may well also be part of them "seeing" each other.

EWWWWWWW

I think he's probably just storing it in a pocket under the armor.

Good job on the call. I was reacting to the previous response of where MM might be keeping the ring...

When you say the exact same thing that someone else already said without acknowledging them, you're making them feel worthless. 'Tis another brain-fart, sure.

About the gap in the GAP: I choose to believe this is Thunt's way of subtly referencing whichever Simpsons episode had a Village People cameo.

It wasn't my intent to make you feel worthless. His response elicited a reaction from me and I missed responding to you. My bad.

Sorry, hung up on the "d'aww!" of Minmax crying when he confirms it's really her. Big, stupid, lunk of an adorable sweetheart.

Boy, this is really dragging on.

Also, MM sniffing the hair isn't cute, it is super creepy. Especially when you consider they have only been separated for a few hours, max, in his timeline.

I used to despise him, but when he threw Goblinslayer out the window, he became one of my favorite characters.

"He was being a dink!"

Another favorite quote of his was the line about him doing lots of dumber things.

I found it endearing, plus, it's a hair. Who knows whose hair it is, until he smelled it, and smelled her. It was actually pretty darn smart.

I never understood why hair-sniffing is considered creepy except in regards to the invasion of personal space. If your hair smells nice, shouldn't that be a compliment? This isn't Kin's personal space, and our sense of smell is more strongly linked to memory than any other sense. When arguing with the goblins, he was going on semi-blind faith and borderline unreasonable hope; now he has the instinctual confidence that will lead to Kin's salvation.

That is, if solving the colored-ball puzzle will actually open the door. It'll be so Thunt if the door remains closed and only the mouth will open, thus prolonging the wait -for satisfaction of reunion and clarification- that sadistic story-tellers thrive on. And then when they finally get together at the exit, some combination of Kore, Junior, or FWIB will ruin it.

Dude's got one helluva good nose. That's just a single strand of hair. Even if it was dipped in ammonia, that would still be impressive.

As long as a scent is both familiar and distinct, our brains are able to identify even a faint whiff of it. Except for the disgusting losers who kill their own sense of smell because it's "their choice".
