Briar does get around. I guess her quantum tunneling isn't an unmixed curse.

I'm pondering... does our little Tumbleweed find this tall drink of water something she wants to sip?

Bill and Ted got lost in a phone booth, so she's in good company!

Doubt it. At least i doubt it NOW.

Have to see what happens.

Figuring out Briar may be a tangled, thorny problem, but at least Shawna ought to be used to that sort of thing.

There is definitely some uncertainty for anybody who gets entangled with her, though.

Well, the getting lost in an elevator lends credence to my walking at right angles to reality hypothesis. :lol:

Seriously, though, what can they do for her? Because this doesn't look like something she is in control of, or even aware when it happens.

So you think that they ought to get Castela's Kindergarten teacher to deal with her, rather than Ms. Alger?

That would work. Briar does seem to be pioneering a unique and novel form of rabbit transit.

Wouldn't that just be a Golf GTI?

Got lost in an elevator, eh? Definitely the Wapsiverse’s Ryoga.

You assume correctly. When he announced the restart, he said that new strips would be posted Monday through Thursday of each week.

That is so cruel, making us wait three days every week...

Elevator? That would be an off the scale nerdy cross reference. As in 'defocused temporal perception'.

Ah, succubus mainline, betting she has issues similar to big sis, with mental blind spots extending a bit further to location and time. Wonder if issues like these underlay the bad stereotype of the "dumb" succubus kids seem to have in this world. Non-standard perception of the world can be rough, and kids are mean. :(

As compared to waiting, oh, six or eight months?

As Kath said to Atsali as they were riding down the mine tunnel away from the fire and the old unstable dynamite, "Let's count our blastings."

On the other hand, Skylar, Selene, and Hellen are all at least partial succubi, yet they seem to be fine. Atsali even had to explain her problem to Skylar. So I don't think that it's a common succubus problem.

The only other siren we've seen (that I know of) was Atsali's mother, and there's not been enough to tell with her. So Atsali's problem could be a siren thing. Or Atsali's problem could just be an Atsali thing, and Briar just has a Briar thing.

And if the two gals ever happened to team up, it would probably result in the universe imploding or something. "One's a college-age adventurer, the other's a high school transfer student. . .and together, they totally confuse crime!"

I suspect our Miss Briar may be an example of an autistic paranormal.
