Now all I want is one of the guest lecturers to be a friendly 4-foot-tall fellow who speaks at length about the importance of courage and perseverance even when securing victory by yourself is hopeless.

Perhaps with one panel of him shaking Jones's hand, and when finding it impossible to move, smiles and goes "Oh hey, my wife's a cyborg too!".

Parleys ferocious swoleness makes me think of Eddie Murphy saying "I'll squeeze my butt cheeks and rip your dick off!" every time I see it

Fuck that keep going Tom.

Make the big finale a kung-fu energy blast super fight with Annie's Flame as a deliberate Kioken reference.

I mean, it's been clear since forever that Eglamore's had supernatural physical abilities. Ever since Parley got picked to train with him we could have expected the same.

Smitty's face. The caption. Indeed.

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is for this scene to be re-touched so that Parley and Eglamore are eating Toriyama Roast w the bone sticking out both sides

Anthony's the only character who's mentioned it, though Kat's dad seems to know what's up too.

Hm. Hmmmm. HM.

I don't think we'd be seeing this much of the strings thing if they weren't gonna get cut or something later.

Cutting is a central symbol in GC, so I wouldn't be shocked. I wonder what the other strings attach to.

Jeanne's what you're getting at, but both Annie and Coyote (through his tooth) have cut etheric connections before.

Jones explicitly cannot be cut by anything.

Yes, that's true. But the I was reacting to this page. The juxtaposition and timing suggests Jeanne and does not necessarily bring in the others.

Like, here are some mysterious etheric threads. Here are two people connected by threads, walking with our hero. On the very next page, these three people decide it is time to confront a character/force whose most lasting contribution so far has been etheric cutting, specifically Annie's ether-face and the permanent scar she has there. If you're working on the assumption that said threads will be cut, this timing is, at the very least, suggestive.

I was making a quick and facetious response to above posts: People theorizing that threads will be cut, and the immediate return of Jeanne's plot thread. Personally I'm not entirely convinced that the threads will in fact be cut, nor will I be surprised if they are. But I guess we'll wait and seeeee~

Yeah I think we're agreeing at one another. I do think that the threads connecting Smitty and Parley will come into play, as will Jeanne's ability to cut the ether. But I also think that Annie and the Tooth will also come into play, and I have an inkling that Jones will be involved somehow.

It all fits together so well, you see

I don't care so much about the outcome. Not anywhere near as much as I care about Parley punching a ghost.

If only she could drag Ysengrin down with her and they could take turns ghost-punching.

Annie can set him on fire again for good measure.

In my heart-of-hearts, I hope Annie can manage to set Parley on fire as well so she can deliver flaming Parley Punches!
