Using Google Translate, it comes out as the same word. Languages- gotta love 'em.
Glad Guin wasn't JUST being a jerk, I must say.

Wow, really liking Guin's actual reason for wanting to drag her over the coals. It is good to be reminded that she's not all about that womanizing life.

Really like the red-tinted word balloons too.

Guin's got her obsessions.

The word balloons were a bit tough, because I didn't want to reduce readability by making things black-on-gray, but I needed the contrast to show it wasn't a whisper.

I imagine “not a whisper” is what Tia objects to?

Guin has a point. But I can't go along with her on this one. It's time to let go. Let the past pass on. But Venne is wrong also. They're both overlooking an important consideration.

Are Guin and Venne talking about the red-wearing chick from the spirit brothel? Or was it another person from there?

I might need to re-read the last chapter, cus of how out of it I was-

Nah, it was Lacey, the tall one in the red outfit with the spiky hair, who used to be Venne's Book Knight protector, during the period Venne recalls as herself being drunk most of the time and might have slept with her, she can't remember.

Wow, that’s some good misdirection. With their last conversation about Lacey in the brothel you implied that Guin was jealous of her (and this isn’t to say she’s not), and then all of her bitchy behavior afterwards could be presumed to be related to that jealousy — as all the comments show that was p successful. And here we see it’s not just the jealousy that’s been driving Guin’s behavior. Masterful misdirection.

Also, I love how you show Venne starting out to whisper with the subdued color speech bubble.

'Masterful' is a bit strong, but thanks.

She is, however, also jealous.

Can someone explain to me how the whole situation with the brothel ended? Because I didn't understand any of it and it seems to have some impact on the rest of the story.

Aww, sorry, I tried to make it clear.

The old guy mage broke several laws. The knight was supposed to take them east to stand trial, because our heroes were going west.

The knight didn't do that. Instead they also went west.

So now they're getting in trouble here for the laws they broke.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't get that they went in a different direction than they were supposed to.
So does that mean the knight is still allied with the old guy? If so, I find Venne cares surprisingly little given that he tried to kill them, I think?

Venne doesn't give even half a shit about any of them.

Yeah, I get the impression that Venne can be sort of ruthless to those that are not near friends.

None of our gals are particularly warm and cuddly to strangers.

On page 144, Venne healed a bunch of poor strangers and refused payment. http://dragonsandsilk.thecomicseries.com/comics/144/

That's right! But she didn't do it warm and cuddly.

Like Seinfeld, the usual characters are not warm and fuzzy, noticeably selfish, not particularly likeable. People tune in to watch the train wrecks.

WhyTF did Dax choose to defy Venne after all? What will he be charged with?

They probably didn't expect to run into Venne again … ever!

That doesn't answer the question. That only goes to poor risk assessment. Not rationale.

And I'm not asking about they. Dax only.





Frame four. There's a cute li'l derriere.
