I’ve done another painting…
Hope you like…
Oh Snap!!! It’s prob. just Alex coming back.
Oh snap! indeed!
Nicole: O_O Wait… what? O_o
Dan: Alex…! >_>
Alex: Heheheh… (steps out from the bushes) *sigh* sorry. -_-
Lovely painting as well Scott, talk about talent! You’d think you’d been using watercolours for years.
Yes. “Snap” right AFTER you say “don’t need anybody finding out we’ve discovered a portal to dreamland.”
And I don’t think that’s Alex comming back. 1, he’d be INSIDE the house (I hope) and 2, it’s still night. He’d still be asleep (I HOPE!)
OOh, Quick, use your sword! Unless it’s just some nosy old lady. then I’d say don’t. but yeah. this looks like it’s gonna be awesome! I get the feeling we’re gonna have a cliffhanger. Possibly with major danger. *crosses fingers for major danger*
Also, Scott, thanks. I’ve been having the worst month- just the worst. And Dreamland been one of the few constant things I can hold on to. It reminds me of home, and, this is gonna sound cheesy and stupid, but it’s one of the few things that’s made me smile in the last 28 days. It’s helped me so much. So, thanks.
I hope things get better for you, AnamCara!
I’ll send positive thoughts your way, AnamCara!!
Oh…and Nicole, I LOVE your new avatar.
Thank you! I doodled her out last night.
So sorry to hear you’re having a tough month.
I can honestly say… I’ve been there. And Dreamland has helped me through many tough times as well.
Thank you for letting me know it’s helped you too. I hope all the happy thoughts and well wishes from me and your fellow dreamers helps some.
nothing cheesey and stupid about honesty, AnamCara
it’ll be okay –<@ (is flower, sorta)
Here’s some more well-wishing for your collection! My bad months tend to come in bunches, but whenever someone asks me how I’m doing I try to respond, “better and better!” It brightens their day, and if I say it often enough I start to believe it.
Give it a shot! Couldn’t hurt.
Must be something about this comic. I honestly think the only reason I made it through my first year of grad school so successfully was because I found TDC within a month or so of starting.
Thank you all so much. :’ )
You guys are the best.
Uho… who is that? lol
I’m really enjoying this act of the story. Great going Scott! 😀
Nicole just stepped in one of their mom’s antique bear traps.
Way to go, Daniel. You’re smart enough to know you’re not supposed to tempt fate like that. 😛
But seriously, my guess is that it’s Daniel’s mother. Daniel is out real late on a date and they’re in front of the house talking. And my impression was that Daniel hasn’t dated much, if at all. (I seem to recall a “My Daniel is growing up!” or some such squee from his mom.) So, yeah, it’s late and his mom might be tempted to see what’s holding him.
If I’m right, though, I wonder how she’d take all this talk about Mermaids, Elves, and Dreamland?
Why on earth would you think Dan is that smart? We already know Alex is the genre savvy one in the family not Dan.
Except that Scott’s told us that this is Nicole’s house they’re in front of…so maybe it’s Nicole’s father?
Actually, I’m more worried about wraiths.
That is what I was worrying about as well. Plus he is walking around with a giant sword so anyone that sees them will be highly suspicious or terrified.
I don’t think the wraiths have corporeal mass in the waking world. They can interact with it by directly focusing on the item they wish to, but would otherwise just flow through obstructions and not have the weight to break a twig by stepping on it.
oh snap, stuff just got real. Of course if Dan is going to be king of the world then stuff would kind of have to get real and with only this chapter left it is going to have to escalate quickly.
I’m guessing it’s Daniel and Alex’s… was it their cousin? I can’t find the page the kid was in, but they saved him from the pirates way back in a chapter long ago.
I’m sensing a Friday cliff hanger coming up!
Lol, at least this one wasn’t Friday’s! :3
If they’re worried about an eavesdropper, they just need to improvise some line about hoping they level up next session because they want to pick this or that skill. Then they can talk about magic portals and elves as much as they want.
So… the Nightmare Realm finally managed to smuggle a material defender into Wakeland?
We’ll see, I guess. Meanwhile, here’s our TWC status.
#6: 12,457 <= us
Remember to vote, folks!
That’s what I figure. A human would pose too little threat.
They don’t need to smuggle someone material in…the wraiths have attacked people in the real world before (which is part of what got Arthur stuck).
Oh, that’s true. I forgot about that.
AFAIR, Wraiths aren’t quite material in Wakeland. They can spy all right, but have never caused anybody any physical harm.
At least, not until now.
They attacked Merlin, didn’t they? (I’d loook it up myself, but I’m at work)
Actually, it was bothering me enough that I looked it up myself anyways. Here’s the page where the wraiths attacked Merlin.
Attacked but never harmed. Would they? Certainly, see next page. Could they? I doubt that.
Why raise a dagger behind someeone’s back if you can’t actually hurt them?
The wraiths attacked Merlin and the centaur helping Arthur in Dreamland at the same time. Merlin defeated the wraiths but the Centaur was slain thus trapping Arthur in between worlds.
They distracted Merlin, that’s true. Could they kill him while being only shadows?
The only time they were able to arrive here physically, they immediately started a war. They needed a portal for that, though, and after the portal was destroyed, the war stopped. Why would it if they could still kill in their, erm, wake bodies? More grief, more nightmares, more fun for their dark lord.
LOVE this painting!
Don’t be scared, he’s got a great big sword at the ready.
I sense young-child-who-wanted-to-take-part-in-Dreamland-advetures-waaaay-back-in-one-of-the-earliest-chapters!
Hm… Potential, silly ways to explain carrying a HUGE, unsheathed sword around at night while talking about going someplace after hours and other gibberish to a police officer or general onlooker #1:
School project on the reflective properties of metal at night? XD
uhh, there’s was a really big spider in her shower…
Okay, that’s a good one.
I like three, myself.
I love Nicole’s eyes in the last panel. 😀
That watercolor is very nice! I like it!
I thought Dan was dropping Nicole off, is he picking her up?
I hope Dan finds a better way to carry the sword, that’s gonna get heavy after a while!
I was about to say “oh snap,” but it seems people beat me to the chase. XD
But yeah, I suspect this is about to get bad…
Nice painting, Scott. ^^
OOOh. I hate Friday cliffhangers. I hope nothing bad is going to happen. *chews fingernails nerviously*
Don’t forget to vote! http://topwebcomics.com/vote/4274/default.aspx
It’s Dan’s mother taking a picture with her camera.
It is possible they both had a revelation about the portal or most likely her mother just walked up to him holding a sword with her daughter. great story Scott
I think Nicodemous has been stalking the pair since he figured out who helped Alex.
My guess would be Dan’s and Alex’s nephew, if he’s around, or failing that, their mother…
But um… how did Dan hear about the portal? I assume he means the Egyptian portal that was broken up? Alex hasn’t woke up since hearing about it, and Nivienne did not mention it… Or are we talking about the pool of Auryrn? The pool is not exactly a portal is it? It requires extensive magical training…
Small nitpick: unless Dan is super-strong or Excalibur is made of super-light materials, there’s no way he’d be able to gesture with it like that. He’d be having just as much trouble as Alex did with his sword, and Alex was using two hands.
