This week in Epic Fail: Tinuvielle distracts Yoru from his awkward questions by (dramatically) explaining interrupting Martin’s story was bad manners. With a rapt audience Martin continues the fiery tale of his adventures with demons.
Webcomic Creator’s Commentary:
I love Tinuvielle’s hammy acting, the throwing up her arm and the “Woe! Woe!” I hope you found it as funny as I did. I’m nearly finished with the Elven Pussy now. Nearly.
Poor Martin does have a tendency to do what he’s told without thinking it through. In other news: Fire burns. Yes I did reference Labyrinth in the comic, not so much a tribute to the late David Bowie so much as because it’s my favourite movie so I possibly reference it too much. This joke may have been inspired by the Amanda Palmer Labyrinth with Sock Puppets version though.
You know that red thing the characters are standing on in panels 5 and 7? That is a platform painted with a symbol of chaos and you only keep seeing a fraction of it. I seem to keep redrawing the entire thing because I’m a dumb, dumb artist who wants it to be accurate and like making life hard on myself. Grr.
What I’m not too happy about is that big gap on the left og panel 7 actually. I think maybe you should see the second demon or some of the other adventurers standing there. Hmm, editing may occur.
Sorry I’ve not been playing Dungeons & Dragons so much lately as the One Night Ultimate Werewolf card game and it’s game expansion Daybreak. We just intend to play a few hands then get to the D&D but end up playing Werewolf the entire evening *guilty face*. It’s true.
YORU: In the story...
TINUVIELLE: [Thinking] Quick! Distract him!
TINUVIELLE: Oh my goodness! The STORY! We have rudely interrupted Martin's story. Woe! Woe! We promise to listen to the rest in absolute silence don't we Yoru?
YORU: Uh huh.
MARTIN: So where was I? Ah yes...
[In the story/flashback]
MARTIN: That's just fire there's no way through!
RED DEMON: Try walking through it.
MARTIN: [Walking through it] AHHHHHH IT BURNS!
RED DEMON: Why didn't you tell me you're not immune to fire?
MARTIN: Humans usually aren't. Shouldn't you know that?
RED DEMON: Shouldn't YOU know that?
MARTIN: [Hair still on fire] It's okay I'm through now.
RED DEMON: Stupid goddamn humans.
