If only everyone had someone in their lives to cut their drama and self-centeredness down to size before it became a lifelong habit. Particularly future world leaders. :P
hehe everyone needs a elowyny .. "D
So a question, as I had never thought of it before. Fflewddur has his harp encased in some kind of protective cover? Makes sense, as it would be damaged were it out and exposed to the elements, fighting, etc. It just never occurred to me that it would be protected. But of course it would be!
Lloyd just writes that he carries it slung over his shoulder, but that doesn't make practical sense really. He'd have to protect it from the elements somehow, so I decided he carries it in a leather case.
As someone who played the harp for four years, let me just say that Fflewddur's harp would be out of tune ALL the time. Harps don't like being exposed to hot weather or changes in pressure. Fflewddur would be constantly tuning his harp. So while the case does make sense for protective reasons, in the end, it's still a big hassle no matter what.
Oh, yeah, I can vouch for this myself on any stringed instrument. I mean heck, even assuming it was hermetically sealed when he wasn't playing it, the strings would constantly be out of whack just from the harp's lie detecting shenanigans! :)
Ah, Eilonwy the voice of reason... =P
Somebody has to do it!
I haven't been here in a while, so maybe you don't remember me telling you before that your art is incredible, so I'll tell you again: Your art is incredible. And I don't know your source material, so all new to me.
Thank you dear! I apologize if my commentary is ever spoilery for the unfamiliar. I try to be vague, but sometimes things pop up.
Love the expression in panel four. "here. Have a spear. Idiot."
"Hands him weapon and tells him to man up" could just about sum up their relationship for the next several years. Figuratively speaking.
