Yes there’s also a mention of sacks that smell like onions...it’s just a smorgasbord of unpleasant odor in this chapter!

New subscriber here! Found your comic and your fan fiction a few months ago during Google searches for Lloyd Alexander and the books. These were my favorite books when I was in the 5th grade and I'm trying to get my kids (11 and 15) to read them - but they won't. Sob! I think they can smell my desperation and are repelled by it ;). Anyways...in the last few months I've read all of the books again, read lots of fan fiction - I had no idea there was Lloyd Alexander fan fiction out there. There's an enormous amount of talent, I've really enjoyed reading fan fiction and this comic is amazing. Great work!!

Welcome! Thank you so much for your sweet words! New readers, both comic and fic, are so welcome always! I feel your pain - my kids won’t read the books either. I have managed to sneak it into them with the audiobooks to a point.

Yup. Those are tough ages. Mine is now 19, and she read some of those kinds of books I was recommending ... in secret.
Maybe have a teacher assign it for Summer reading.

So is that the whirlpool above them - the lake is the ceiling and they just fell through to the floor? I don't remember how it worked in the book, and unfortunately don't have access to it at the moment...

The book description is rather vague, which makes sense in service of keeping things mysterious and confusing from their point of view. There's a mention of a far-off roof glowing with a strange pale light, and multicolored lights that don't seem to illuminate much hovering here and there. There's also a river running past them, the only thing I didn't include here. In my mind it's just out of view. So it's not really clear how they go from full water immersion to lying in a cave, but - hey, that's Fair Folk magic for you.

In light of this, Taran's last line makes me laugh...yes, thank you Taran, the fact that we are not lying drowned under 20 feet of water would indicate that this is not, in fact, the lakebed. Brilliant assessment. I'm sure this would have been Eilonwy's next line, if circumstances had been different.

...I love Taran's crestfallen look, and the quick transition to a look of total determination...

Yes. That. Exactly. Once that boy owns up to any outstanding failure, the next step is "man up" and suddenly he is STUNNING.

I'm getting some Labyrinth vibes from those shadows. Boy, the opening of that movie (with the goblins hiding in the darkness, and the owl at the window) really freaked me out when I was little.

Freaky. Creepy. Excellent.

Labyrinth is my favorite fantasy cult classic and it is just possibly a guarantee that my Fair Folk are heavily influenced by the Froudian style of fae.

I had such a crush on Jennifer Connelly. I mean, who didn't?

And Ludo was the best.

Man, that panel? of the ...ceiling thing is just stunning. The slight transparency of the stalactites really draws you in.

The transparent stalactites were an accident...of the Bob Ross variety, I guess, because I wound up liking them too.

The boy has character, and he always mans up. No wonder Eilonwy fell for him.

That's the point when leaders are asked to stepped down, once they assume responsibility for their blunders. Eilonwy looks like she might have been willing to bring that up if ...

It's decent of Taran that he takes all the blame on himself, but he would not really need to. After all, everyone else but one in the band had supported what had only been his suggestion and had willingly followed him downhills, even Gurgi and Melyngar had, and the one opponent had had her own reasons for accepting Medwyn's possibly outdated travel guide at face value. That she wouldn't miss her chance to rub it really deeply in - well, that's Eilonwy.
