Re: Cool Down 2012-08-07

On the other hand, the way Phix referenced the Library as "her turf" makes me inclined to think she can overpower anyone who enters if she so chooses (as long as the great Power that we once heard voiced in the Library doesn't object, I'd imagine :)). I'm envisioning Phix, channeling Mrs. McGreevy ...

Hi - I'm another Dave (one of many I suspect). Confirmed Wapsiholic since the spring of 2011, confirmed punster since pretty much forever, and a very happy camper now that the Wapsi forum is on-line!

Re: Cool Down 2012-08-07

There's an immense amount of wisdom and human insight buried in those beloved legends about the gods. Just look at the way CEO's, Politicians and their ilk high-up detatch themselves from the lower-ranks. Often it's not even malintent. They just get só absorbed in the macro-view, that they complete...

PUN JAR! NOW! I assume that's directed at me, and you're quite right... I do owe. Had to hunt around for a while to select the proper offering. Here it is: http://rjohara.net/images/coins/rjo-55.jpg It's an ancient "lion" coin from the Lydian empire, and is one of the first (and perhaps the very fi...

Re: Cool Down 2012-08-07

How 'bout Shelley, Phix, and Brandi need a new cat toy? Well, re Phix - as far as we know, Phix doesn't have Titan heritage. Inside the Library nothing can harm her, but outside the Library she may well not be a match for Bia. On the other hand, I have a feeling that Bia may be very reluctant to bo...

That is fantastic work, Jay-Em (in both senses of the word). I was impressed seeing the work-in-progress photos you showed before... and these "afternoon of a faun" photos in the garden are even more amazing.

Oooh. Very very leonine. Yes, indeed... moreso than we've ever seen portrayed before, I think. It's consistent, though, with what Euryale is saying, and with what Brandi said to Bud after the big bar fight, and even with what Bia said to Shelly. Sphinxes are apex predators. Their nature is that of ...

I'm related to the real Wahnee family, and you bet your bippy I'm invested in my imaginary cousin. Kinglash - can you describe the traditional naming-inheritance conventions among the Comanche for me? Do children usually inherit their father's family name, or their mother's? Do women adopt their hu...

Re: Bia, Phix, Shelly - A Family Affair 23-27 July

Well, let's see. A Griffin is half lion, half eagle. A hippogriff is half griffin, half horse, or in other words, one-quarter eagle. That's $2.50 in gold. The study of mythology is full of surprises. So these guys could be worth a couple of bob at least... The Pun Jar wants at least an eagle from y...

If it were anyone other than Euryale speaking, I'd agree, but in this case I think it's her dialect/accent.

I have my doubts that the feelings of Shelly, Phix, and the others will heal as quickly as the Library wall.

Great Ghu, what a stewpot of intrigue they seem to have been dipped into... up to their eyeballs and beyond.

Re: Bia, Phix, Shelly - A Family Affair 23-27 July

I just realized that there may be a Chekhov's Platoon hanging around. It's canon that Shelly is not an "only child"! She has seven older brothers. . I don't think we've ever met any of her brothers, and from what Bia has said they might not be able to shape-change... but unless the Wahnee family sit...

Luci and this new guy both are freckled, and some seem to opine that they might both be redheads. Any chance that they are related?

Well, I can say that I didn't find Wapsi Square. Paul found me when Blank Label Comics was put together, and I hosted them. I still have a copy of the old BLC forum; I may see what I can do about breaking a copy of the old Wapsi threads loose to plug into here. (Read only, of course) Thank you on b...

Could be. Where You Come From says Shelly's father was the 'half human child of a sphinx', so he's human.

What a revelation this who sequence was. It answered a whole lot of questions while raising many more, as usual. So by the action line: 1. Bia wanted a titian who could change shape for some reason of her own. Hunch - it has to do with Sibyl (the Oracle's) prophesy that Bia would have a descendent ...
