Brendan (my 9 year old) laughed when he read this page.
“Why would he want to touch her, dad?”
“You’ll have to read tomorrow’s page, Brendan”
First time commenting recently caught up with the story VERY GOOD read
Welcome to Dreamland!
its a trap!
Brendan is a dear. Seeing is believing, but touching makes it Real.
My thought exactly. Verbatim!
Nicole’s look in the last panel is priceless.
Last two panels, really…
Waddya know… her face DID “freeze that way”…
haha nicole’s like… you wanna WHAT?…
Seriously, Scott?!?!? This is a children webcomic!
It’s alllll downhill from here.
Soon? We shall have to register our date of birth before getting our daily dose of Chronicles.
Civilization won’t last long once the rioting begins in the streets.
Yes–with a PG rating–which will be easy to keep. He just wants to be sure she is really here.
And Where do you think he’s going to touch her Zack?!?
I doubt he has any intention of groping her, especially with his girlfriend right there!
nicole’s thoughts: He never asked me that question…!
I doubt that children would see anything but an innocent question in this.
That being said, Nicole doesn’t seem to be very happy by any of this. Penny for her thoughts?
And: I would love to see the others through the surface of the lake! All in good time, I guess.
That brings up a very good point. If Nastajia has heard everything that Niviene has said, then she must be seething with anger. Alex is the King of Dreamland, not Daniel as Niviene has implied.
Maybe there is a reason that!Niviene has been alone all these years.
True king versus actual king perhaps? I think there was something resolving that around the time of nic’s fall though, that Dan was the true king, but Alex was the one that can actually be in Dreamland to rule.
Oh Dan you are so classy.
Because touching makes it real, yes.
He’ll know he isn’t just hallucinating.
This is the moment Dan has been waiting for for his entire life, really – the absolute proof that Dreamland is real. It’s not surprising he can’t quite believe it, yet…
Hey Scott, I wonder if your readers (or you even) know you are in a webcomic competition and in need of votes?
It’s tournament style, and Dreamland Chronicles is currently only a few votes behind it’s current competitor.
Have a look:
Just voted. Come on fellow dreamers, we can totally take this thing!
We’re slipping! TDC is 163 to 216 for its competitor!
It’s now TDC at 206, the competitor at 238.
307 to 291. We have taken the lead! Whoot!
Still leading, 451 to 428 (51% to 49%). Too slim a margin! GO VOTE!!!
Ack! We’ve fallen back: it’s 50%-50%, but we have 616 votes to the other guy’s 620!
We are in the “Simon Division,” and after my vote we are still behind. Step up, people!
I did not know.
Daniel … our very own Doubting Thomas.
I’m seeing a poke in the shoulder coming …
Great story, as always can’t wait until tomorrow!
nice comic as always!
This time I’m making a comment just to warn you about a new app for Android (DailyComic) which makes money out of your intellectual property (and that of many other webcomic authors) ripping out your comic and adding ads:
At the moment they removed it from the main App store, but it is still present in many minor ones. You may write to the author to remove your comic from their list (like many other authors have already done, like OOTS or LICD).
Have a nice day,
Sorry, I noticed only now your yesterday post just about it…
(scott, when you dont like this post just remove it.)
AM, and that is a very sad thing.
Did you ever looked at DailyComic your self. Before you go walk after someone that has not have his comic on that app?
It is a very nice tool for watching and learning new webcomics from your android phone/pad. Before i watched this comic trough the webpage i did used that APP many days and now i watch most of them trough the web. Only when i’m on vacation i use the APP.
Most of the time the comic i read on it are 1 or 2 pages older then those on the web. So people who want to be up to date need it to watch on the web, like me. Also it shows the url of the comic in a nice info box and give all credits to the comic writers.
It looks to me Chris Hanel is frustrated because HIS comic is not shown on the APP and now it wants it removed, i find it very sad.
Looks to me like he’s upset about the app developer making money pushing other people’s creative work…
I’m sure the app is really great at what it does, and it’s real convenient. It’s also unethical. That’s what he’s complaining about.
It occurs to me that, with their lights shining on her, Niviene probably can’t see Dan and Nicole very well. Unless she’s got exceptional vision…
That’s quite true. Has she even acknowledged Nicole’s presence?
“Who is this female human with you true king of dreamland? “
I find it interesting that even though she greeted Dan as the True king of Dreamland, he didn’t say “Wait, what? I thought Alex….? I’ve never BEEN in Dreamland…? What?” but this is good, too. Seeing is believing, but touching makes it REAL.
Remember that Alex views Dan as the true king. It was Dan’s planning that saved many lives in the battle that knocked Nicodemus off the throne.
hehe Nicole doesn’t even know how mermaids greet. Yet…
q up dramatic music. (or dramatic gofer comes to mind)
I hadn’t thought of that…
I’m sure that Dan hadn’t thought of it either …. or maybe he did!
Dan the Scoundrel!
How do we know that, I’m sure Alex has told them about the kiss.
Isn’t that only when they need to breathe water? Or is that just a side effect??
Keep in mind what the traditional Merpeople greeting is. If you want to see a priceless expression on Nicole’s face, wait until after he gets a big smooch!
5,156 votes, and we’re still TWC #8.
We did better today, but so did others. Yet, we hold. We hold!
Dreamland expects every reader to do their voting.
I think what bugs me most — we haven’t seen Alex or Nastajia tell Niviene who they are or what they want. She seems to know who they are…and it looks like they are being distracted with the wonders of the Pool. And she knows that Daniel is the “true” king of Dreamland. When would they have told her this????
Who would have told her all this? Maybe one big, red wounded dragon whom we last saw sinking into the depths of the ocean….
Nastajia has spent quite a bit of time with Niviene while waiting for Alex to return. So chances are Nastajia has been talking lots with Niviene. You must know about girl time right.
Also, it would be really boring to watch Nastajia recap what has happened up to now. Instead Scott just showed that several hours had passed and implied that Nastajia had told Niviene their story.
I mean, can conceive of two ladies meeting for the first time and NOT talking for hours on end?
Nivienne has also spent centuries living in a cave with a magic pool for viewing things and had deep interaction and training with Merlin. We know it can see various human places. It stands to reason, with Merlin and Arthur entrapped, she would have wanted to monitor his successors down the ages. It may well also be able to see other places in Dreamland, too. Never assume the solitary mage does not know all that goes on by magical means. Think of Galadriel in LOTR and the visions in the water.
All those are possible… but I’m still going with the Big Red Dragon…
i wouldve said that too if i was nine years old and i used to read the dreamland chronicles one or two years ago
niviene: no, your pervert! D:<
lol sorry just had to throw that out there.
Electrical storm knocked out our power TWICE this afternoon. Killing two 8 hour renders.
(My power back up died a couple months ago)
The renders should be done (barring any more lightning) by the morning.
Ouch. So, what type of UPS died? You in the market for something that gives you a few minutes to logout or run +30 mins? Simple one would cost you maybe $45. Complex +$3000. BTW, I felt your pain. I’m just glad the storm only grazed my neighborhood…unlike a year ago when a house across the street lost it’s roof due to a lightning strike……
Is Niviene missing some clothing in the first panel? She seems to have bare shoulders there but not in panel 2
Why does a mermaid have a staff…
Its Merlin’s staff, He gave it to her.
