She is proud of Tirin for not quitting but still recognizes she may not survive the ordeal, Not sure what Sampson, Billy and Aunt would do if she doesn't survive. (But then we know she does at least until the impotent wonder shows up with super fleet, including a half a dozen functioning Death Stars.
How does getting hit by magical lightning help one to become a magician? Following the same logic, getting hit by a car does not turn anybody into a good driver. Or is it precisely not logical or understandable BECAUSE it is magic?
Yeah, Lil Tir has the potential to be a finger-wriggler, this just jumpstarts it (or burns it out, along with her life force)
Kinda reminded of a now non-canon Star Wars story concerning Han's three kids (Jaina, Jacen and Anakin), Anakin is just a kid (about the age of Lil Tir in the original version, maybe younger) butt he has the ability to 'repair' machines using the force, his older siblings bring him a machine that isn't working to fix, he examines it, says it's "a little melty" inside, attempts to fix it and ends up making it "a lot melty"
Fortunately we know Queenlock doesn't make Lil Tir "a lot melty" inside, just wonder how much smoke will end up coming out of her ears though :P
So, I've worked the symbols in Queenlock's speech into a numeric cipher from the unfamiliar text font, save for the possibility that items 16 and 17 are a single symbol. Anyone know a good way to decipher random numeric substitution?
Edit: Never mind, got it.
May the forces of magic rise within this child... rise to the surface!
Edit2: Wait a minute, I recognize that S symbol! This is Blambot's Wizardspeak font, isn't it?
@Merceneiress: No, but I once decoded a note in the same font from another webcomic, Last Res0rt, a week short of five years ago. I used the same process then, and one of the other commentators provided a link to the font. It was long enough ago that I'd forgotten, which is why I did it manually this time too.
Edit: I'm sorry, but that first your should be a you're.
@Ganurath: sounded more like it is awakening her abilities, or bringing them to the surface
Was Abby a prodigy before or after the Ritual?
A prodigy is simply someone with a tremendous talent, not necessarily an innate or natural ability. It's kinda like a fancy word for 'extremely proficient'
@Merceneiress: thank you, so Abby never had to go though this?
Every now and then, will take a dip in the archives, an just want to say, every time Tirin has had an image change, you have provided an in-world explanation for it (not with Lil Tir though, originally she had a slightly different nose, everything else is the same)
See we have new cover art She seems to be in the mood to shove the hogleg up the Emperors ass and see how many times she can pull the trigger before his body is not useful as a silencer anymore, so she turns to Ephraim as the next candidate. Question when they get back this far will Flynn be around anywhere?
@Guesticus: Yes, the original little Tirin was a different model. I tried to model the current lil Tirin to match the original, but you're right --- doesn't completely match. Perhaps the new timeline has altered her nose a bit :)
@Dragonrider: Glad you liked the new cover art! Yeah, I figured it was time for a change and you typified her expression brilliantly.
