This is the final page of chapter 13. Chapter 14 will begin Tuesday, and there’s going to be certain fans who will be very, very happy with it.
Woah! Emma’s DAD! I wonder if he’s ALSO a Namesake…
He probably is, and he probably fixed the house too…
Could be, but I have a theory (probably not the only one, but I haven’t read enough comments) that her mother is Sleeping Beauty. Although, maybe they’re both namesakes and that’s why Emma is so special.
YES! That’s what I thought too! It makes sense because remember that Emma’a mother went missing after her and her father got divorced?
If it truly is her father. Remember, the last thing that happened in this house was the attack by the ghost. It’s main target is Emma.
I have a baaadd feeling about this.
Wait, when was he supposed to get home? Is any of this actually happening? Is it all a hallucination? O___O
That’s exactly how I feel! I am so worried that she’s on the loose with magic messing with her brain and she’s running into all the wrong people except they look like all the people she should be trusting.
We get to see Mr. Crewe! Excellent!
Don’t be so sure . Remember nothing is as it seems sometimes plus , it can easily be something else .
+1 Point for pointing out what needed to be pointed out.
Yes Emma, there is a problem with your memories. Isn’t nice when everything slowly comes together. (Jokingly Sarcastic) Also is that Emma and Elaine’s Dad. Damn he’s hot! Wonder if he’s single? :3 I regret nothing!
OHMYGOSH WARRICK WILL APPEAR ON THE NEXT PAGE!! Possibly with Emma on the chapter cover?
Or maybe Elaine and Fred?
Freaking freaking cliffies! It feels like everything’s happening at once, and I wanna see it all! How did “dad” get back? when? why? is it really him? and what’s going to happen to Emma’s memories? What about Oz, Calliope, The Rippers and BeEF? So many questions!
Also, loving the family portrait. Nice little touch :3
oh wait, maybe not on the next page, but on the next chapter. Hopefully it will be full of shipping? =3
My excitement got the best of me, sorry u.u
I’m totally thinking Warrick, too! ^_^
Emma I must warn you their is a high probability he is not your DAD!
Yep, it is actually Warrick. That’s canon now.
aaaaand how much do we want to bet that’s NOT the real Mr. Crewe?
I’m guessing that that’s the ghost.
Hopefully I’m not the only one that read the page description and went “OMGWARRICKISCOMINGBACKI’MSOEXCITED!!!” On a more page-related note, what in the WORLD is going on? Is that really Emma’s dad? What is going on? Waiting until Tuesday will be painful. =(
Judging from the comments already made… you are most certainly NOT alone! …I certainly hope the poor lad isn’t frightened by the massive amounts of cheering for when he DOES reappear! (Fourth wall? …what wall?)
…so what would one prescribe to ease the pain of waiting for an update?
I love that so much! XD
this picture of Warrick is now on my lock screen for my ipod! its so cute!
Well there’s my cure for anticipatory update pain…
…I’ll just stare at the cuteness of panic-paralyzed Warrick.
And try to not feel guilty for it.
*Turns sideways and pretends to ignore shy Warrick, like a new cat skittered under the couch*
AGSHDSZYTRKJSXYNHG (I am the creature of your nightmares, Warrick :P)
Definatly not the only one. I love warrick!
*prepares confetti, streamers, balloons and evil, evil marshmallows for Warrick’s return*
*tries to not be too creeped out by what is probably a Not-Dad*
I can’t believe that Emma’s dad has returned. Is this really 37 who One said he had sent to “deal with” Emma?
That’s a real possibility. Several characters in these tales had the power to change shape or cast illusions, etc.
Considering there’s a significant lack of damage on the house and drama that would infect any normal person at said damage to their house, I’m liking this theory.
It all seems far too “neat.”
BGDAHHH!!! talk about a curve. “we found another rock layer, let’s dig a little deeper!”
I have no idea what magical bus I’m riding at the moment.
Your comment just made my day. :,D
I’m not sure what they’re cryptic message about chapter 14 means, but I hope I’m one of the happy ones.
What nationality is Emma? Just curious does anyone know?
French Canadian. Her mother was from Puerto Rico. Meg answered the question in detail in the comments of the last installment.
Oh oops must have missed it thanks for answering
WARRICK!!!! *explodes with joy*
It isn’t him. There is no way it’s him.
Something is up.
Emma’s dad isn’t really there and the house isn’t really fixed. It is all illusion.
Well, luckily it seems the ghost is not home… or the ghost is posing as Emma’s dad.
Disregarding the hair, beard, and eyebrows, he does remind me a bit of our friendly taxi-driver.
Orrrrrr I may just be going crazy and seeing One everywhere.
Also, does the name ‘One’ remind anyone else of the Matrix? Mr. Anderson was ‘the One’, and his online username, ‘Neo’, was an anagram of ‘One’.
Reminds me, if Neo had a successor, how would he be called? Now, let’s find an anagram of ‘Two’…… hmmmm, ‘Wot’. Yes, ‘Wot’ is cool.
This seems suspicious. #1 and Ina said they were sending #36 to help ‘fix’ Emma. Emma comes home to a house that looks like a demonic ghost monster NEVER destroyed it, and her ‘dad’ has come home from where ever he was when the series started… is Mr. Crewe #36? That is if he really IS Mr. Crewe? *lol*
Or was that Ben’s house that the demonic ghost monster destroyed when he was there with Elaine and Fred the card soldier?
Alright, looking past the shock of seeing Emma’s (maybe real) father, and fangirling over Warrick (which is really hard to do because OMG WARRICK) , I noticed the family photo in the background. Emma’s mom!!!!!!! She looks SO MUCH like her!! I’m assuming that’s baby Elaine she’s holding.
What is Emma’s heritage? It’s obvious from the picture she takes after her mother, I was just curious where the darker skin and hair came from?
Emma is French Canadian. Meg answered in more detail here http://namesakecomic.com/comic/fragments-of-memory/ midway through the comments.
Meg answered that on the last page, I believe. The abridged version is that their mother is Puerto Rican.
That is correct – their father is French-Canadian and their mother is Puerto Rican.
I’m going to laugh if the person who shows up on the next page isn’t Warrick. If it is Warrick… I’ll do a fangirl squeal.
And then Mr. Crewe removes his mask, makeup and fatsuit, and the shocking revelation is made that Warrick is Emma’s real father.
Warrick: “No, *I* am your father!”
…Won’t the fanbase be angry since that situation kinda makes shipping really weird?
Yay! Warrick! This has been stated before, but wouldn’t it be so cool if Warrick came to our world? It would be like an ancient Maya trying to navigate the subway system. That made little sense, but Yay anyway!!!
Made perfect sense to me… dunno what that says about MY state of mind, heh!
Y’know… an ancient Mayan would probably be convinced the subway system was some kind of dragon or serpent.
Mayan: “Quetzecoatle… you are… less rainbow-y than we had imagined.”
Subway: “ROAR” *spits up people, inhales people* “ROAR”
Mayan: “…and a little crankier, too. Is it indigestion?”
You, Sir(?), have an intriguing and wonderfly unique mind. I applaud you.
You are awesome! I’m half Mexican so I try to respect part of my mom’s side of my heritage and her country’s history. :3
WolphStrykes: Your post actually did make me laugh out loud.
Ah, I was hoping it’d be something Wonderland-related on the next page. But, apparently, everyone is hoping for Warrick. Oh well. Keep them pages coming!
Yes. *rubs hands together*
Ah, a picture of domestic tranquility. We are being set up, right?
Tuesday: “… there’s going to be certain fans who will be very, very happy with it.” And the rest of us will be doomed?
there’s definitely something strange about her dad. Just look at his hand at the bottom of the page… it doesn’t seem right.
Our artist has confessed, on occasion, to errors of things being left in. A recent one was a six-fingered hand.
So she could have made an error. Or it could even be a deliberate act of kittyness, my dear fellow mouse.
Yeah, it’s a missing line.
The mistakes slide in a lot, but are usually fixed before printing. Sorry about those. My time to draw is a bit limited so sometimes I really rush thru a page.
Or maybe Mr. Crewe is who he says he is, but he’s also a double agent for somewhere and that little fact has been hidden from Emma and Elaine for their whole lives. . .
And I’m hoping that it’s Warrick on the next page, or maybe Fred and Elaine.
(First time theorist/poster, 6 month reader, stopped skulking in the shadows because no one has posted the above theory yet.)
Ah! Im all caught up! Amazing webcomic you have there! Glad to be able to hope aboard the Namesake express!
And is it just me but does Emma even look a little bit shocked in the last panel, like she really did not expect to see her dad and she feels like something is slightly off? Or maybe Im reading too far into it
Knowing that the evil isameg is writing this comic… we’re probably in for some dad-transforming-into-creepy-something-or-other. Or an epic battle. Or both!
I just read through everything in two days and now I am waiting (impatiently) for updates like a normal person. I don’t know how I am going to survive this.
*offers you cookies for the wait*
The same way you survived the rest of your life up to this point, most likely.
Geh, all of my paranoia/conspiracy theories
Anybody else notice the family framed photo in the final panel’s top-right corner and how much Emma’s mother looks like Emma, especially in what she was wearing last chapter (almost)?
He’s number 37
