#559 - Give It Up
Einar, the hairy little dwarf says:
Okay, that last panel was just great - though my cats disliked the sudden loud noises coming from me.
Black Mantha says:
I really like the mouseover text, too.
Sir Gawain says:
Maybe leaf did pass the test after all.
Is that a rubber duck in the middle of Malv's magic words?
Sir Gawain says:
I think it is.
Interesting. He said Leaf had magic, AND the furies...
Step 8 - Take a bath.
He's totally being a species-ist here. It was one thing to want to get rid of the furies at first but after Feiht talked to them, I really feel they want to do good in the world. It's not really about having power anymore. They are people too, not just the raw power of hate. They deserve a chance to make a differece. Simply destroying or trapping them seems heartless at this point. I just can't believe that is the only way to go.
Isn't the mage being overy harsh here? How did the tests show that Leaf would use his powers to become a threat? He saved Ayne instead of concentrating on his "focus". I was positive that was the right move but now it seems like the guide was correct and that it was not.
I'm really suprised by this turn. I don't understand or like it.
Man, that mage is seriously scared of power! I guess he's done something really horrible in the past. Whatever it was, he seems to have swung too far the other way, so far as to make him look very funny in panel 6. ^_^
I wonder why he's trying to lose his staff.
Oh! He judged Leaf a safe keeper for his staff... and obviously considers himself an unsafe keeper.
TomaO2: I think you misunderstood Malvenicus there: Leaf passed the test, and Malvenicus, convinced he would not be a threat to the world, can go on doing whatever mages do these days.
he has probably more important things to do than helping every child looking for his father...
He's right about the furies only being able to solve things by destroying.
But sometimes, sometimes destroying something is the right way to solve a problem
Remmon: Correct. Just ask Ayne.
I hope Sally will be able to find her lair now... Also i'm kind of surprised the castle didn't turn into a snowglobe and Malvenicus (Krakatowww) would still be there holding it. Probably floating while the others plummet down.
The last panel made me laugh XD
Let me get this straight. Furies are powerful manifestations of anger, right? So they have only the power of destruction. Normally, they are not at all selective about this. These furies, however, are trying to only destroy things that should be destroyed. Given that there are some things that should be destroyed, what is so terrible about this?
I concede that people, naturally tending towards evil, should not be trusted with power than necessary. That said, this kind of behavior should be, if anything, encouraged in furies. Furthermore, odds are that if Leaf somehow exorcises them, they'll give up on their little scheme and revert to the standard kill everything type of fury. Of course, things work differently in this world than the real one ...
I just don't agree on what he says, the furies CAN be good, they simply just chose to be part of the evil side
Well, there IS such a thing as "Righteous Fury", so I think they could be used for good.
The Paladin says:
Why are people calling Malv a mage? He is a Magister
Are you sure this guy isn't part pixie?
Anyone able to translate what the Mage said? It looks like at least part of it is in Farsi, although that may just be a trick of the authors. Too bad I don't know Farsi well enough to read it, ugh.
Not farsi at all, it's the CtS magic font that I made years ago and which you can find in
the pixie forest
He said "Magic castle go pop."
The Furies aren't inherently evil, that's just the way people use them. Leaf is a safe keeper for the furies because, as LadyFox said, there is such a thing as righteous fury, and the only way to anger leaf is through injustice.
However, the last line of the Alt text should read "Would never have fit on this page" to properly fit the pattern of a limerick.
:) Leaf gets to keep the magic staff. Dat dadadi daaaaaa!
heh.. the last panel actually made me laugh out loud. that was a great comic guys.
Go go gadget castle!
It would have been helpful if he said a little on "how" to get rid of them.
Cool. I had not realized you made a font. However, the font about half of it looks like Farsi ;).
I think that Leaf could always get a job doing demolition! Malvenicus *Krakatowwww* clearly hasn't thought of that.
Chariset: He's not. For pixies it's natural, in his case it's learned behaviour :-)
"Step 8 - Take a bath."
That made laugh as much as the least two panels ^^
I think Malv should stay away from Ayne for the next.. uhm... few centuries.
Hmmm! *light goes on* Am I the only one who thinks Malv is THE wizard that caused the flood that washed Leaf's father away?
It could be that the test isn't over yet...Like he is testing how Leaf would act if he failed the test...sorta like he is seeing if he can control them, as being told that you lost often makes people mad which in turn would cause the furies to exsplode something...Hmm...although...I'm still not sure that Malvenicus actuly plans on doing anything...seem to me like he's just having fun with them.
P.S. Behold my power to say names and not make lightning.
Wonderful Plot Twist..now all we need is a Payed Commercial..
Tudden, you just spoiled our Authors' April Fools day joke for this year.
i agree with blakcdrake, yet still, he is stupid enough for it, to think they will grow stronger if he goes away. I hope we will see feiht back soon, i really miss her
Go go gadget castle! :)
