Leeds, United Kingdom - Meg
You tell ’em, Emma!!
Yeah, they need to be just a tad less efficient and disciplined.
i dont care that they work for glinda and ozma
I officially really dislike this female guard, and hope she gets a time out for being so stupidly paranoid
Just wanted to say I am really enjoying the story. These usually come up in my news reader while I am working on my own stories (and thus, procrastinating by looking at my news reader), and I enjoy taking a break to read them. Now, back to work!
Ok… they might be Glinda’s guards, and they might have had justification tying up Anlise since she’s currently under poppy influence. But WARRICK??? Yeah, he’s “Wicked.” But does that really justify tying him up? The worst he’s done is steal some stuff. I don’t see how that’s grounds for suspecting him of being on Renge’s side.
Either way, Emma’s got a point: They’re trying to help Ozma too. You don’t just swoop in and shackle up some of them, and say the rest can’t help in the endeavor to save Ozma. Accept the help when it’s offered!
I’m not sure how much Emma’s mellowing out Warrick, but when you think about his sister at the beginning of this, there’s probably reason to believe he hasn’t been very nice lately. Besides, the “Wicked” title’s given for a reason, and she would know he must have earned it somehow. (and I think at least some people believe he’s responsible (in a more direct way) for the disappearance of his mother and/or Ozma)
IMO, the story could benefit from a Moment of Awesome right about now, such as Emma or Scarecrow telling them off and putting them in their place.
You’re right: They should point out that they’re supposed to be on the same side and that it’s foolish to ignore help when it’s offered. It’s the job – the DUTY of the Dorthy to fix things. If they try to shut her down, they’re standing in the way of that purpose and their own belief in the role of the Dorthy. What would Ozma or their own Glinda say about it? Besides, I thought most Dorthies died of old age.
And what’s with Glinda’s guards doing their own thing, while the Queen of the Field Mice says nothing?
Scarecrow, now would be a good time to say something I think.
Agh … I’m caught up again, and again anxious for more.
Ladies our zealous warriors who won’t listen to reason because they believe doctrine in all they need. Sorry if I went a little over the top there.
Warrick, I don’t think attempting to pull out a knife is going to help your case.
I believe he was trying to pull the Tin Woodsman’s [Grandpa’s] Axe. Still… not likely to help matters.
Ah, that does make more sense. But yeah, weapons don’t help prove your innocence.
Rhetoric and doctrine should be guidelines, not ironclad rules. People like this need a good swift boot to the face. Love the comic so far!
Let’s tie everyone up that’s willing to fight for Ozma. 😀
But, I think she is making sense. She thinks they’re ready now, and anyone who may pose a threat would be safer out of the way (if there’s enough people already, more people could hurt rather than help). It’s just that they’ve probably misjudged how effective they will be.
Yeah, just a bit. Gas masks aren’t going to protect you from THESE poppies. I don’t think it really matters what you can or can’t smell when they can root in you brains. They really do need Emma to get through them.
I’d like to see them shackle up whoever’s been responsible for the Project Wonderful ad with the scantily-clad woman in it. It shows her walking mindlessly towards the right of a vertical banner, and I really don’t appreciate having to block /all/ of the images from Project Wonderful just because of one poorly-conceived campaign.
Sorry if this is off-topic. The fun part, now, is that I unblocked my images, and the same campaign didn’t load in. Now I’ve found the “Worst Paladin Ever” mini-banner campaign from “Twice Blessed” about which I’ve already complained (but I had mentioned that one some months earlier). Commerce is just so much fun.
I wholeheartedly agree with this comment. I’m tired of that ad.
Found it. Will someone please tell Crowden Satz, and others, to clean up their ad campaigns? This time it was “Chuckle-A-Duck”. …And the others need to be vetted, too. Just sayin’.
I appreciate your efforts, but please stop the witch hunt on people advertising on the site.
SECONDED! This is a webic on the storm of all information and huckstering, the INTERNET!
I am amazed that you are so sensitive. AND trying to force your delicate feelings on the rest of us.
Somewhat randomly I just now happened across this somewhat goofy comment and felt it was worth a response. Seemingly some individuals, and I’d have to presume FrankNW falls in the group, have a somewhat tenuous grasp on just how webcomics operate. Meg opts for ads which support her site. To block them is to hurt her directly. I, otoh, pay to have ads placed here, which drive traffic to my site. You might presume that I’ve experimented over the years with a variety of ad types. And you’d be correct. And you might further presume that I’ve run the ads that are most effective in driving traffic to my site, viewers who, once there, like what they see and look through the archives. Which thereby garners me some small revenue because of the ad placements on my own site. Unless you’re one of the tiny minority that actively PAYS Meg to help her continue her cartooning, you will get but little sympathy for me for the fact that you don’t “like” my ads. I really don’t care whether you like them or not and there’s little reason I should. They hurt you not at all and help support both Meg and myself in our mutual endeavors. I’ll suggest that you learn to simply avert your eyes if you find my artwork to be so painful to behold. I can assure you that not everyone agrees with your view, happily for me.
Lately all these princesses seem to have a combative spirit, why can’t they be more recluse like Princess Kaguya and just spend the whole day surfing the net and playing DS? =P
Because that’d be boring. Besides, which princess would you rather have: One who spends all her time being a ‘proper’ princess and reading/surfing the Net/doing whatever, or an ‘improper’ princess who goes out and gets sh*t done/fights for her kingdom/whatever? More improtantly: What if you change all instances of ‘princess’ in this conversation to ‘prince’?
Sorry for the late comment and possible-antagonism! I just wanted to say that.
You might have a taste for adventure, but we’re not letting you see if you’ve got any talent for it.
Not that I think Emma does… aside from someone putting an awesome protective spell on her.
So he stole stuff and lit a few things on fire. At least he didn’t like…harvest anybodies organs, or run like a child trafficking ring or something. Ozzians would be horrified if they came to Earth.
