His good mood didn't last long.
Just a tiny bit full of ourselves, aren't we?
That escalated rather quickly.
Well, it wasn't really on purpose, man.
Sigh. Loup, Loup, Loup… I was expecting him to lose it over the lake water, but he didn’t last even THAT long, did he?
She dares when bringing gifts.
Aaand there goes the concentration.
It takes a lot of concentration to control the forest huh? Well I guess loup is as all powerful as he told then... hmm... Also that last panel is real nice~
Ooh, interesting turn! Will we now have three or more Annies?
Or half of one...
I love panel 4.
A) No, she hadn't. A dark-eyed wizard did it. And B) Even if she had, what of it? It's her own self. She can do what she likes with it.
Yes, yes, we did and if you want to stay one individual you won't do anything about it.
My, isn’t he a quick study!? 🤔
Temper, temper, Loupy! 😤
"Nice to see you too. By the way..." *FWOOM!* "That's for pulling that stunt. Thanks for the bonus."
Boop the snoot, Annie
Well, I expected something like his anger at Antimony's condition to happen, but the fact he's putting forth an effort at ALL at control is far more than he did before. Character development, perhaps?
So Loup made Court Annie so that the forest is left alone while He made Forest Annie to be his ideal girl. That actually makes a lot of sense now.
That was rather rude, no?
Those 2 blue geese got REALLY angry..
Bad Doggy has the same hind as the last one?
I love that I can't predict this story 🛋 It's technically Loup's fault: If he hadn't forced the elves out of the Woods the Court wouldn't've let them in, boosting the number of kids/teens & triggering Zimmy's PTSD which engulfed the Annies & made them face their feelings for Surma which led to them reuniting. Ironically Annie figured only Loup could undo it since the Norns' temporal authority couldn't & even they were overridden. 💥🦜 I think that's to do with "territory": Time may be the Norns' "territory" but whoever controls Gilitie controls its reality ‼️ Is that how to save Annie? She becomes Gilitie's "admin" & as long as she's inside/aligned with the woods she can control her own life, life span, maybe even life cycle: "You look well, Kat" "Silly great-aunty Annie, I'm Nat! Can Surma come out to play?" 🦋🚬🏡
The fourth panel is really cute. Loup is actually a child. Which can be dangerous, nothing is worse than a irritatable kid with almost unlimited powers.
You didn't ask permission first, dude. Not cool.
Wait a minute, how DID Annie become one person again? I missed it...did it happen when she was in the weirdo land with Zimmie and the green kids from the forest?
Dare you to try the nose flick again.
Well, that went south in a hurry. I suppose that's all you can really expect when you put a raging, narcissistic sociopath in charge....
okay. He won't be lasting all that long either.
OH JAIL! JAIL FOR FIREHEAD GIRL! JAIL FOR FIREHEAD GIRL FOR ONE THOUSAND YEARS!
Told you he wanted to see both of them.
Is she though? She feels more like a merged person. Before, she was a single universe person, then two parallel people, now it seems like the timeline and personality got spliced. She's not Court Annie, nor is she Forest Annie.
Her style is kinda wild urban. Stylish brown shirt and jeans. Long hair, but perfectly managed. Even her face is sort of natural-looking but with makeup.
Get the fuck over it, Loup.
It was an accident, Loup!
how about you split yourself in two instead, huh loup?
Well, technically, she wasn't even asked if she wanted it.
So much for being omnipotent.
Blame Zimmy for reversing it.
Blame Loup for not doing it well enough.
Blame the court. Not for any particular reason.
Now THERE'S the Loup we know and love
........well that took a turn.. o.o;
Does every interaction with him really have to be like this? I'm kind of waiting for Annie to just calmly say "Yes."
they hate to see a girl boss reconstituting
Loving the last panel :)
Loup is not a good boi.
"Actually, we're two people in one body now."
"Ah, I understand..."
I didn't do it, the demon girl Omega device did it! Now let me show you my increased fire power.
haha, imagine if he makes FOUR annies this time amirite
The ysengrim is showing a little bit.
*Somebody's* feeling all thwarted and stuff.
And... what is it you did, exactly?
Aaaaaand there goes his grip on reality. Also, the double-take in panel four made giggle maniacally...well done!
Classic abusive relationship energy here.
It's time for Loup to meet the other entity that can alter "reality". Even though both have trouble keeping control of things, Zimmy just might be strong enough to be Loup's nemesis.
I'm afraid for her. Poor annie
More unstable than a 2 legged chair...
Next page: Loup splits Annie into 20 people. 12 in-comic years are spent dealing with this.
wow that is an ANGRY pupper, hopefully Annie can calm him down with the lakewater... though the shadowmen might freak out around now
Wow I hope that lake water fixes his attitude
Kinda channelling Ysengrin's less savoury attributes. Somehow, despite Coyote's infinite powers, I can't imagine him beginning many phrases with "You dare ... ?"
Still betting Annie is going to make him two people again.
C'mon, Annie, smoke him! And warm that oily little midget's toes, too.
And then the whole forest went to shit.
He should have told the both of them he did not want a reunion... Now it´s too late.
Hey, if it makes you feel any better, the commentariat was dismayed by it as well.
Wanna see me split you into two people?
…wanna see me do it again?
Welp. That answers a few questions. And introduces more problems. Also, he might want to calm down- anger isn't good for maintaining concentration.
Just throw him his bone and give him a drink of water. He'll be happier after that. :)
Hoo boy! Someone‘s a bit shirty!
Glad to see you Insane as ever Loop. I wonder if she'll say that it wasn't her that caused her to be one again.
Though I doubt Loop would fully care.
Ruh roh, time for zimmy show up and dance with loup
Also, regarding 'Friends', some sad news regarding the James Michael Tyler, the actor who played Gunther:
His good moods never do.
Also, someone clean up the wiki.
What an arrogant jerk. Wonder if this will lead to some trigger-happy action
O no Zimmy's in trouble now.
You think he's pissed now? Wait till he finds out a young girl undid it... Centuries scheming to get Coyote's power and Loup loses to someone he's never even met.
Saw that coming.
Annie: *flicks Loup's nose*
In case my first comment sounded sarcastic, it wasn't. 🤭 I really thought that because Loup has Coyote's time/history/story-sniffing nose and was so calm last time we saw him, he'd instantly know what happened and move on, glossing over that mystery again so we won't get a proper explanation for a few years like every other thing in this comic. 📆
I love Coyote.
I love Ysengrin.
I do not love Loupe.
The snap between the cartoony take and the bloodshot rageface works pretty well for his character.
It'd be really funny if he just does it again.
I didn't expect this. :O I'm so used to Coyote seeing every outcome coming and acting like it was all according to plan. I forgot that Loup can be more Ysengrin too, be surprised and angry.
Oh, I love Loup by now, please don't let anything bad happen to him.
…and that’s how we got four Annies this time.
"You dare reverse what I had done?!"
"How clever of you to notice! Yes, I did. Now behave, doggie, or I'll have to put a leash on you."
He's lost his good mood now. So we know who did it, just not why. Now he is pissed off. How do you handle that?
"It takes a lot of concentration" ... and then he lose all concentration in two frames. Looking forward to what will happen.
Of course, it didn't took a lot of concentration from Coyote. HE knew how to just let it go. Loup tries to micromanage.
Now that everybody's mentioning the almost definitely intentional blue and red geese in Loup's fur, I can't un-see.
Somebody’s looking for another spankies
Bodily autonomy: rejected
What a jerk
Loup, if you don’t behave, you’re going to get the spankies!
god he's so annoying
Still an ass, I see.
Now I can't help but imagine Alan Rickman's voice coming from Loup's mouth.
I knew Loup wouldn't like it.
I think it would be amusing to see what Zimmy would do if posed with the problem of Loup.
damn, must be pretty annoying to have two people you care about combined into one, loup!
anyway, ysengrin’s temper plus coyote’s ego and childish persona— it makes for some combination!
