I mean, he's not entirely wrong there.
Ysengrin here spilling the tea
Whoa.. OK, THAT sounds...legit. But surely the psychopomps wouldn't let the Court take her "Far away" would they? They wield some pretty powerful abilities...
Oh, I see. So this is the point where Annie learns The Terrible Truth.
Ysengrin is so tragiiiiic D: It's such a great story but man, mannnnn I feel for this character and I really wanna know what he's talking about. Can't wait for this story to progress, the suspense kills
Did he just say oh?
Don't know whether he's implying something far more ominous, or if he's misinterpreting Annie potential expulsion as something far worse.....
This makes me so goddamn interested to know what he's talking about. I cannot wait to find out all the secrets
Is Ysengrin.... crying? That would be even sweeter if we could completely trust that what he says isn't being influenced by Loup.
You tell her, Loup.
She's to be the new "Jeanne"...
Way far away!
Hello there, Other Shoe. Nice of you to drop in.
Bullshit: see conversations Coyote and Ysengrin: what if Ysengrin held Coyote´s power. THat´s just a trick to keep Antimony. A mix of Coyote´s procedure: there´s a grain of truth (the Court is not, under no circumstances, to be trusted: truth. Does that make Coyote or Loup trustworthy? Ha! Haha!) Would Anthony protect his daughter at all costs? Yes.
Annie looks like her mom at the bottom right somewhat.
Well then, if she's going to Far, Far Away perhaps she'll meet up with Shrek's in-laws.
Everyone knows that the Court is awful. It has restricted access to spells that turn off people’s superpowers. The resistance will eventually just be you, your dad and your legal guardian, Annie.
I hope explains their plans to here, a little less vaguely. I means it's obvious they want to dos something terrible to the aether, probably destroy it, and all the life that relies on it.
This new knowledge is making me waffle between liking the Court/hating the Court and liking the Forest/hating the Forest, all for valid reasons. I trust Ysengrin (and oh, those are tears, AGH my heart) and I hope he comes back for realsies.
I just want a fight already.
Well this is awkward...
Well, that's interesting.
Cue Loup cutting him off, both so he won't say too much, and because it's funnier that way.
Mmmh, if that is true wonder if her father knew about this ...
A galaxy far, far away?
Ysengrin, please try and explain coherently!
Does far, far away mean from Loup and Tony? That would be nice.
I love Ysengrin's ethereal depictation, he's so frickin' beautiful.
I definitely wasn't expecting this - but based on what we've seen of the Court, it shouldn't have surprised me. Ysengrin's probably not telling the entire story (he was resentful of the humans there even before he killed and ate Coyote, and Loup's shifted his plans by now, making his threat to Gunnerkrigg a means - to threaten Annie into staying - rather than an ends), but it still raises a question Annie probably hasn't thought of so far in all of this: is Gunnerkrigg worth protecting?
Taking her away?
Now that is far worse than I imagined!
Oh no.. Is he crying? He's crying isn't he?
That breaks my heart. Poor Ysengrin. :(
His intentions are pure but his methods...
Aaahhhh ... but dad (Yes, Tony) will prevent that from happening!
Outer space! Space is far away!
Loup has a pretty trippy face, it will follow Annie wherever.
not as far as Jones, though
At least this explains why they are super attached to Anne.. on one hand, they..are kinda looking out for her..knowing the court can do some serious damage to Anne and her mental state...on the other...they are so not going about this the right way...if only there was a middle ground...but after Loup's attack on the court..any bridges are effectively burnt, salted and ground into dust...
I am imagining this conversation the same way Mufasa did with Simba in The Lion King. "Antimony!!! remember who you are!!!" "Now I have to go because I dont have enough credit bye!!"
Those aren't tears, its Loup being melodramatic
oh ysengrin, dont cry...
Can I just say how I never get tired re-reading this comic. After I learn new things from the new chapters, I read back from chapter 1 again. Loving this whole journey
God I love this comic. The art, the characters, the story building. I've been reading since highschool I love it!!
I just noticed the blue on Ysengrin's face - as though he's crying. Maybe he really did what he thought was best?
I can't help but feel a little sorry for him.
