Tomorrow. The Bag. I promise.
Wonder if they’ll have her send a message to Felicity later.
I hope Nicole writes a message to take back to Dreamland to read to Felicity.
LOL! David and I had same idea at the same time!
Ouch. Sounds like she’s going back into med student mode, but at least she’s forced to, regretably, acknowledge it. Great timing for the bag, and I *love* how “last night” was technically all the way back in January.
Nicole seems to have reconciled her repressed past surprisingly well. Good thing too, because Alex is going to push the limits of her new-found acceptance real soon now.
A message from beyond? Not to mention Felicity’s health? For someone who has been working the detached scientific observer persona, it’s got to be unsettling for Nicole to find herself on the inside of what she’s been observing.
I anticipate future eventuations with subtly controlled glee; keep up the good work, Scott.
I assume that that will bring us to Felicity’s condition and then the letter (possibly with some stuff in between) which will, in turn, inevitably lead to bringing a letter, from Nicole, to Felicity to bring back her will to live. Is it going to flow similarly to that?
No worries, Scott. I liked Alex’s reaction to the whole dinner with Nicole event. And now the conversation comes full circle back to Dreamland…
and we shall find out the true contents.. of the letter… >.< i’m itching to know!! XD
So, if Nicole wears the sword necklace, do you think she could return to Dreamland and visit Felicity, and give her the will to recover?…
I couldn’t help noticing the person in the background in the last panel. Took a few seconds to work out why it was nagging me.
Nice re-use of textures, the rock giant breaks into reality, as a top!
Actually, what I can see of the hair looks familiar too.
Even skeptics believed once…
I’m glad Nicole is accepting, uh, reality? And thank you Scott for telling us that the bag will be in the strip tomorrow :).
Well well weelll, looks like someone is trying to forget but can’t. Why not give up.
This is good for you, Nicole.
Even though they’re clearly visible in the establishing shot of page 915 ( http://www.thedreamlandchronicles.com/?p=1304 )
I -JUST- noticed there are extras on the library set! Another small detail that adds to the veracity of this finely illustrated illusion. When the chapter is finished, think we might get to see them close up and in focus? I’m wondering whether they actually have faces. Like movie facades, why build a whole house when the camera is only going to see the front door?
Love the library light and scenery … and the story, of course
Still have to get to the issue of the medicine bag and, the MESSAGE TO DAN, Scott, before we go the “message to Felicity” route!
It is about time for the bag to be given to Daniel. And, I hope that Nicole joins Alex to visit Felicity sometime soon.
Still, are you fine folks aware that the TWComic voting restarts every month? And, our fave comic has dropped to number 7, already, this early in August? We have a chance EVERY month to make Scott #1, and according to the blurb about his 8 million readers worldwide, there should be no issue keeping him there. I vote as often and early as I can manage, just like I do at TVTally for Firefly.
Moreover, I just can’t conjure why TDC isn’t at the top of the heap. Perhaps others have a more compelling story or appeal to a different (and more numerous) audience, but…. So, come on, peeps, VOTE!
Ah, resignation to remembering a time when things were simpler and more fun. OK, she must have a scientific reason why she stopped going to dreamland and abandoned felicity to captivity.
This is all just so cool.
Now that we’re all aware of the existence of Dreamland as a place your mind can travel to during sleep, perhaps she can devise a way for Alex’s mind to overcome it’s reluctance to accept abilities and physics which are not attainable in the physical world. I still think there’s a little bit of Matrix and Star Wars Force here where your imagination can shape and manipulate what’s happening in the vicinity.
@duelhearts – I wouldn’t get your hopes up… I have a feeling Daniel will keep it to himself…for now (but to his defense, probably at the urging of Orion)
I think Nicole’s acceptance will depend on how good a scientist she actually is. Scientists may resist adopting a new theory (such as General relativity), but once the evidence is in, they find a way to make room for it in their world view.
Nicole wanted evidence that Dreamland exists. There’s Alex’s flatlining when he dreams, and now her own experience as a child, corroborated by the matching pictures of Felicity. Dreamland exists, and she has come to accept its reality. So, the message bag should be no major challenge to her.
It might be harder for her to accept magic working in our plane of existence, on the other hand.
Last month Dreamland was briefly at #1 Top Webcomic, then slipped to #8. This month it started at #8 (as far as I can tell) and has already risen to #6. Keep on voting!
Yeah, I’m anxious about seeing the message, but acknowledge the possibility that Dan may keep it to himself. On the other hand, I’m also really interested in whether on not Nicole sends a message to Felicity.
Still voting for ya, Scott.
Oh, you wanted to forget it? Then here’s a note from your childhood friend IN Dreamland! WHAM!
And good job all, moving us into 6th place so fast!
I wonder if Alex ends up letting Nicole go to Dreamland instead of Dan.. or was Dan just supposed to read the note and not actually *go* to Dreamland? Hmm.
It’s a means of sending a message, though there is always the possibility that if Alex gives someone else the necklace, they’d come instead.
I am now saddly current and caught up, :’( I’ve been going slow for a while ’cause its nice to have a few pages to read ahead of me to look forward to. Now I’ll have to suffer day by day like everyone else that was caught up. I love the comic. Thanks for the wonderful suffering. TDC is now 6th in the top 10
i cant help but wonder if all three real-worlders will get drawn in eventually. clearly Dan deserves to go. as supportive as he has been ill find it personally very satisfying if he finally gets to see the world hes been writing about all these years.
I don’t like time-zones… it’s wednesday already and I still have to wait till afternoon to read the next panel
great comic though – love how it’s updated week daily
We all saw Nicole’s history in Dreamland with her friend, Felicity. And the final scenes, added with the fact that Nicole had been back on numerous visits, only to find NO Felicity. What reason did Nicole to return any more? Her friend was gone, the parting was a very scary dream, so why would Nicole WANT to come back, especially at the age when it all happened?
Nicole is older now, like Alex, and has demonstrated a prior ability to enter Dreamland, where Daniel has not. We’ll have to see where Scott takes that thread in the story, tho’.
Several people has suggested Alex allow them to use the necklace (with the sword) so they can visit Dreamland. If I recall, the sword was intended for the next true King of Dreamland, and Nickodemos, who couldn’t free the sword of it’s pedestal, was keeping all human kids away from it until Alex came along and got it. The sword was meant for Alex. What would happen should someone else go to Dreamland with the sword and it’s lost again. Alex is an adult and cannot enter Dreamland without it; besides, like King Arthur, he’s meant to be the next rightful Human King over Dreamland. I think it would be irresponsible for him to just let anyone else have it even for a single trip. Orion said adults could make the trip through dreaming or vision quests but it was mentally and/or physically draining.
That’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.
Another great comic. Can’t wait to see what’s in the bag. >_< And Nicole SHOULD send a note to Felicity.
Right after she fixes the problem with her shirt cutting into her arm.
I love how the main character (brain fart so cant remember his name right now) is wearing a thunder-cats t-shirt
Just a reminder: Scott has previously confirmed that Alex is the only one (in current times, anyway) who can use the sword/necklace to enter Dreamland.
Thunder cats HOOOOOOOO!
I want that T-shirt
