Kitty McKitten says:

ooh first comment!

Kitty McKitten says:

Is the fire dragon one of Myhrad's parents? that would be super cool!

Lina says:

"I've raised them for over a century to be my lunch!"
"These mortals have short memories."

*dies laughing*

Don't think I've commented before, so just to say I love CtS very much.

Kuddles says:

No, his parents were revealed earlier ... Uncle Joey maybe?

Qzole says:

I'm still saying what I said before, they are Myhrad's parents, but they changed....a lot... Maybe it's becouse they went a bit insane when they lost Myhrad, and this really affected their appearance...maybe
It seems that the lava dragon can't stop the smoke coming out of her nose ^^

Bastet says:

Myhrad is good at lying.

Chariset says:

They're not his parents. His mother had very long teeth and his father's horns pointed backward, not out to the side

Bob says:

Very good blending on the wings of the lava dragon. (does it have a name?)

*te he he* Short memories. I think I even rember the first comic. maybe...

Dragonfear says:

Can we be sure he's lying though? I mean he did cross his toes when vowing not to be evil and then later he tried to torch the countryside...

Offski says:

I'm beginning to entertain Qzole's idea that these are Myhrad's parents gone to seed, it all makes sense.

thewatermelon says:

4th comment! Is Mr.orangethundercolorwithyelloweyes myrads dad?



Did i spell "myrad" right?

Mia says:

Hmm... That lava dragon looks a bit like Myhrad's mommy. Maybe it's her sister or somesuch? o.O
Mebbie Myhrad reminds of mommy! ^^

Wildy says:

Or maybe they were/are friends of Myrhad's parents, and knew him briefly? Hey, is that dragon orange with brown splotches, or brown with orange... stuff?

Wildy says:

By stuff I mean stripes. Love the dragons! =D Little odd that Myhrad has pupils and the big dragons don't... perhaps a part of the 'don't look into their eyes' they're grown up?

Sarge says:

what about the poor ole big blue dragon...he's the one that actually caught them...doesent he het to have a say if he wants to eat or not?..lol

Sarge says:

oops...that last sentence should read "doesent he have to have a say"

Ivellios says:

why is everyone asuming its Myhrads parents aunts uncles etc if you want proper holywood clinche/ cartoon clinche it has to be something realy obscure prefrably an imaganery name with second cousin twice removed somewere in it :)

Ivellios says:

sorry for the double post but i just noticed that the lava dragon only has 1 eye and there is a red scar were the other one was is that why you were mostly doingshots from the right of it so you could have a semi dramatic reveile later on but decided to put in a image of it now to see who would notice it?

bookbook says:

"They're my elves! I've raised them for over a century to be my lunch!"
"Oh my. And you say this in front of them?"
Leaf looks squashed in the third panel.

Pixie Slayer says:

The lava dragon don't look happy to see Myhrad. I wonder if they aren't family friends, but rather family enemies.

MB says:

The big blue dragon doesn't seem to be very intelligent; check out the way it's eyeing its own tail. Maybe it serves the lava dragon in a similar capacity to a dog ...? "Fetch, boy. I see some food."

The lava dragon may, indeed, be an enemy of Myhrad's parents. Or a hunting rival. Or maybe, just maybe, just as Leaf is searching for his father and making a reputation for himself, Myhrad's folks are looking for him and gaining a reputation in dragon society?

june says:

what happens next?

Narissona says:

MOMMY!! DADDY!! THE BIG DRAGONS KNOW MHYRAD OR HIS PARENTS OR ARE MHYRAD'S PARENTS!! I wonder if they'll eat them anyway.

Squirt says:

If they are Myhrad's parents,and of course reconize him, why would they eat him?

Obithree says:

I don't see Feiht anywhere... maybe she's pranking the blue dragon, and that's why he's staring at his tail?

Flaming Mono says:

Ivellios, it looks a lot to me like the dragon has both eyes in comic 351.
And where do you see the scarred eye?

Flaming Mono says:

never mind, I thought you said the blue one... yeah, it does have a red scar where the eye whould be

Flaming Mono says:

It's got a lava eye! able to shoot beams of heat just by looking at you!

Squirt says:

Scary.

bookbook says:

Will Myrhad EVER grow up to be that big?Will I EVER be able to type in italics?

Rhea Hiryuu says:

Hey look! I'm commenting! heheheh...Yeah, this is my first coment whee!

Anyways, I just wanted to say that the comic is GREAT, I love it to death! I've been reading for a while and the artwork has come a long way (Though it WAS awesome to begin with, make no mistake), and you're expressions are really something else.

To the comic; my first thought was that they were some weird version of Myhrad's parents as well, I mean, what if he doesn't remember them correctly and the picture we saw wasn't really what they looked like? That could happen. OR they could have NO relation and be sorta like friends of the family, and Myhrad reminds the orangy fire dragon of his parents. It could happen. Guess we'll find out eventually!

dragonqueencr says:

It would be very bad if the dragons did eat the elves because it woud end the strip. Unless of couse they slay the dragon but that would be bad too because everyone loves dragons. Am I babbleing?

Bob says:

So far you are unable to see the red dragon's right eye. Even in panel 4, from where you can see straight down, you are unable to see either eye. As far as i can tell the scar is a regular scar. By looking at the dragons closer to find this out i noticed that the dragons' eyes are set at the side of their heads. Being preditory animals this dosent make sense. My only theory is that they didn't have time, or the need to evolve that way.

Qzole says:

No new comic :(

Silverwolf says:

What if the dragons are suffering from dragon alzheimer's?

Moonclaw says:

Yes, sadly I've found mortals to have very short memories...Great comic, can't wait till the next one!

Nebra Reppalk says:

Normaly I don't wait half a century for lunch, takes far too long.
And honestly, don't you get tired of all these stories where the main characters are related to half the people they meet? Maybe Myhrad's face ended up on the side of a milk carton because he was missing and the lava dragon remembers it.

Nebra Reppalk says:

And Ayne is still armed if you didn't notice. Is anyone else concerned she might do something incredibly rash?

Aklon says:

Heh and there goes the Food for the big Dragons, YAY go Myhrad. So is Myhrad going to Grill them or Roast them?

Elemnar says:

Bob - If you're that big, can fly and can breathe fire ...I guess placement of eyes suddenly becomes a very minor issue ^^;

verrie badd speler says:

Would dragons actualy drink milc form a milk carton?

Grey Fox says:

Heh...what happened to the lava dragon's smoky nostrils in the fourth panel? the dragon inhaled? :)

Love the comic - Myrhad is adorable.

Bob says:

My point is proven thanks to Elemnar

Osk says:

he realized smoking is bad for your health

dragonqueencr says:

but he was addicted so he started up again in the next pannel.

Flaming Mono says:

oh, and I can't believe I'm saying this last, but man that was a funny comic!

Squirt says:

What happenned to the new comic? Huh? HUH?

Bastet says:

I wonder if this works...

Bastet says:

The first row is especially funny!
I really don't like the word 'especially'. I always spell it 'ecspecially'...

Thecatteam says:

Bob- For the red scar, check out panel 2....
blah

Thecatteam says:

Panal 2 thing.... mabye. It might just be a thing on the lava dragon's forehead.

Thecatteam says:

Red scar-NO GO mabye

Tas says:

That is truly a kickass dragon

*just finished reading the archives* great stuff so far. This'll definitely be added to my dailies and my list

~Tasiha

thewatermelon says:

when is the new comic!?!/!?

Mithandir says:

Err .... right. I\'ve removed the HTML tests some people were performing here so readers don\'t get scared and re-added the explanation of what HTML tags you can use below the comment form. I\'ve also added a new feature, now you can link to any strip by adding Comic number or Strip number to your comment. E.g.: Comic #301

Shadow Phoenix says:

Thank you Mith, that makes life easier. Now I can put in links to comics! I like links. I hope you can get that next comic up eventually, we're all dying to know what happens next. Our new issues of Muse can only keep us entertained for so long. ;) Also, I love the blue dragon in panel one. He looks like a pixie dragon who just realized his tail was shiny (that's the best comparison I could come up with). BTW, where's Feiht?

Some kid says:

gulp

Somesuch says:

A random observation: Myhrad's orange parent was stricken by lightning. Those patterns might be a scar over its body if the lava dragon is Myrhad's parent. The blue, though, I'm not sure about.

Bastet says:

Maybe the brown is where it got scorched by lightning!

Flaming Mono says:

I remember a while back at the party, the king mentioned time travel usually involving tentacles, and you said it was a tribute to Discworld. Was that from any particular book? I just started reading the series, and I like tentacles... don't ask.

Flaming Mono says:

hehe... suction cups are funny

Irish Drinker says:

I don't think they are his parents. Even if the motehr was scorched by lightning, her horns are far diffrent, and are yellow instead of red. Father didn't really have horns, and doesn't have that fin looking thing on his ehad nor on his tail. Hence, these are new dragons.

Shadow Phoenix says:

Actually, that's a really good idea. Also, if you look at, say, Comic #282, you can see that she (for some reason, I automatically assumed the orange one was his mom in backstory) had a row of little horns down her face. This one has a row of broken-off horns. She also had larger arms than the blue one. But the blue dragon in this comic definitely couldn't be his dad. Different body shape, different head.

Shadow Phoenix says:

Sorry for the double post, but maybe the orange one could be a maternal grandparent?

CryptoGirl says:

or it could be that the backstory was drawn that way because it was myhrad's memory.....so maybe they could be his parents, but maybe not.

Grey Fox says:

The tentacles would be from the denizens of the Dungeon Dimensions (which tend to have way too many arms/tentacles/probes and not enough body.
Yeah, I own every Pratchett book he's written (unless he's written a new one recently. heh)

Grey Fox says:

Oh, and it's not from any particular book - the Dungeon Dimensions are in MANY of the books, in fact any book which involves magic has them in it (which is nearly all, btw). Most notable, however, for descriptions of the Things is Sourcery. (Rincewind combats them inside the Dimensions.)

Mithandir says:

And there\'s also the thing in the Light Fantastic. Its number lies between 7 and 9, it is twice 4.

DragonFire says:

the orange dragon MIGHT be myhrad's mom but i dont know about the blue dragon heh

Aklon says:

they dont even look like Myhrad parents

bookbook says:

Uh-oh. I just had a vision. Look in the last panel on Comic #55.
"A fire based creature in a shop that can go boom? This is why I love traveling with you guys!"

dragon egg says:

I think that is Myhrads mom and dad, the lava one was shocked by lightning and therefor the lava mark and stuff were made...

Grey Fox says:

Heh...I'd forgotton about him. Amazing what a really powerful flash can do...

Flaming Mono says:

OK, thanks. When I was reading what you guys had written about the tentacles, I thought you meant some specific book where someone time travels and something involving tentacles happens. Yeah, I've already read Thud!, The Light Fantastic, and Equal Rites. Good stuff.

Tallguy says:

well for one thing. the story of Myhrad and his mom and dad, was very simple illustrated. the dragons look alot like how Myhrad discribed them.
this is what they could really look like as opposed to what Myhrad remembers

Squirt says:

If they are Mhyrad's parents wouldn't he look a bit more them?

Master_click says:

*knocks on the computer
anyone home?

wwolf says:

Just wanted to say hi. I'm really new to this comic, and I've been reading it from the very beggining. So far i'm only up to 250 something. A lot of u i havent heard of before. I regognize invellios and a couple of others from the comments way back in the beggining. I liked the comment setup more back then. Do they still have feiht with them?

wwolf says:

No one replied to my comment? :(

Bob says:

OUI!};^p

Kieah says:

Irish Drinker says:

Well, The Lava dragon DOES resemble his motehr, the horns, the tail, the two large teeth. I was looking a tthat paticular effects. Also, remember that the Blue dragon was in a battle, with the humans in his memory. So, WHILE it is quite possible, its all up to teh writers if they are or not :P

bookbook says:

I think Mith and Alien should decide. Probably Myrhad WAS on the side of an elf carton (ya know, milk carton) and everybody was looking for him for a while.
Be careful, Mith and Alien. I'm no a hyper six-year-old but I have the patience of one.

bookbook says:

Waitaminute. Ayne is still armed? So where's Feiht?
Uh-ohhhhhhhh....





bookbook says:

























Nicholas says:

Most of you think that theas dragons are related to Myhrad. but i think that theas dragons had a child of there own and lost it or it died and becous of the madnis the dragon finds myhrad familiar.

zanarkrimshot says:

sorry if this has already been said but i have to say it anyway the fangs on lava drag are to small to be his mumisita

0/ yay ;) first post

thewatermelon says:

Mith, this is the "new comic" kid. do you WANT me to send a dragon to make you medium rare!? MAKE A NEW COMIC!!!!!!!!!

thewatermelon says:

put feight in here! here are her cheerleaders:

kookoocheerers says:

PIXIE!!!!!!PIXIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!

thewatermelon says:

what did i tell you??


someone respond! bookbook? Gray fox? helloooooooooo??!!

Bastet says:

The purple dragon doesn't seem too interested in them.

dragonqueencr says:

look if you keep telling them to update they would probably want to wait longer so stop spamming up the comment board and give the poor authors a chance!

Mith and Alien if you are reading this take as much time as you need. We will be waiting! : )

Squirt says:

Bastet, the dragon is BLUE NOT PURPLE!!!

Squirt says:

Oh yeah,bookbook, how come you didn't comment?

Squirt says:

And I sort-of agree with Nicholas. He might remind of

someone

.

Squirt says:

BTW Mith, what do all the things at the bottom do?

Coyo says:

Every time someone asks when the new comic will be up, it gets delayed by two weeks.

-grin- Sound familiar, Mith/Alien?

Wildy says:

Parents don't just FORGET what their kids look like if they haven't seen them in a long time. If these dragons were Myhrad's parents, they would KNOW it was their kid. Not just suspect he was familiar. I go with the milk carton idea.

Aklon says:

Im have to agree with Wildy, but then again its up to the author.

*lays some pixie bait out*

bookbook says:

hi everybody! If there is not a comic by Monday I will set a [ozor and a seFib on you, Mith. For you, Alien...
You get a rbo; ibw. Don't ask what those are because I don't know.

Oh goody! People are finally noticing me! Squirt! thewatermelon! Thank you! I exist!

Nebra Reppalk says:

First: I can be very patient so I'm not going to complain about the delay in comic production.
Second: Supporting my own idea of the milk carton, if any of you read Jeremey Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher or knew obscure facts about dragons you would know dragons can be fobbed off with offerings of milk, the reason remains unclear, but hey it works, the village is saved.

Grey Fox says:

*gnaws on bookbook*

ShokBaton says:

*kills bookbook and gives him to the dragons as a peace offering*

wwolf says:

Yay! I am finally done with all the archives! umm, me forgot what i was going to say. The blue dragon ( not Myhrad) is shineeee!!

wwolf says:

I love the 1rst panel!!!!! " I have raised them for over a century to be my lunch!" " Oh my" and the 2nd panel too. " and you say this in front of them?" Funnyfunny

Squirt says:

Your welcome for noticing you bookbook

Zelda says:

Thats a long time to be waiting just for lunch!

Draginladee says:

Whooooo boy, this conversation is gonna get even more interesting, I can just feel it!

Draginladee says:

And I mean both the comic and the comments.

thewatermelon says:

all right, dragonqueencr.



whats your favorite color?

4WindsWanderer says:

"Parents don't just FORGET what their kids look like if they haven't seen them in a long time. If these dragons were Myhrad's parents, they would KNOW it was their kid. Not just suspect he was familiar."
But grief can cause people to be in denial when they see the thing they lost, because they fear it won't turn out to be true and they'll be disapointed, or they tucked away the painfully haunting memories in a far part of their mind.

bookbook says:

Dear ShokBaton
This is the only clue I am going to give about my identity................. I am NOT a boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, dragons don't take humans as peace offerings. That only happens in the faerie tales.
*takes on Spanish/German accent* Unless I am not human... heh heh heh...
Yours sincerely,
bookbook

bookbook says:

I will gnaw on you too, GreyWolf. As play. Isn't that what wolves do?
Did you ever go to a place called, "Camp Concord,"?

bookbook says:

HUR

Wildy says:

Yes, 4WindsWanderer, you're right. People (perhaps dragons too) don't care to hope for something very important, just in case they might be wrong. But I was wondering... Is Myhrad a name his parents or the elves gave him? If it's the name his parents gave him, they would definately remember that. However, based on the comment by the orange dragon ("Hmm... a very elvish name.") it could make sense that the elves named him.

Empress Catriona of the Cat People says:

Cats think a lot like pixies... well this one does... *Vanishes off with a cart of fireworks, in the general direction of dragons* A fire based creature and whole pile of things that go boom...

Pixie Slayer says:

Either Myhrad didn't feel safe enough to mention his dragon name (which would imply HE sure doesn't think these are his parents) or Myhrad is his dragon name and the lava dude didn't recognize it. Either way, it seems far to easy and unlikely for these to be his parents.

Bob says:

I see the countdown HALLELUUIA!!!

bookbook says:

Oh great countdown...
You are the ruler of all elves
You are hecka cool

Auryn says:

You guys need to chill out. A new comic will be posted when it gets posted. You do realize that Alien and Mith both have lives outside of this comic and that usually comes first, right?

Auryn says:

My two cents on the parental debate. The 'lava' dragon could be his mother. If you go back in the archives you will see that on the same day that Leaf lost his dad, Myhrad's mother was struck by lightning while rescuing him from those baddies that kidnapped him. The two look very similiar. As for the blue one...I'm not really sure. We'll find out soon enough.

Shadow Phoenix says:

*Does a little happy dance*
Yay! The countdown! Now I can finally find out what happens next! And escape the overenthusiastic discussion! This is almost as bad (in terms of overenthusiasm) as some of the mail in Muse was after the whole pink bunny thing was implemented.
(For non-Muse-readers: No, I'm not insane. Check out the Muse fan page glossary.)

Shadow Phoenix says:

Oops. That didn't work the way I wanted it to. The HTML stuff is confusing. Only the word finally should have been italicized. You guys need "Preview" and "Edit" buttons or something.

DragonRyder says:

OMG do another comic already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive been waiting forever!!!!!!

wwolf says:

What are shlck mrcnry and kvn nd kll? Are they comics? Pwease no one get mad at me if they are bad because I don't know what they are:( Someone tell me? :)

Wildy says:

Ah yes... the hot pink bunnies... I doubt we shall ever get over it... And I think I missed an issue, I had no idea what they were talking about when they had a picture for "I hate Milton Rupines" Who the heck is Milton Rupines?


Yay! countdown! Too bad I won't still be up when it comes out...

Qzole says:

And I will be in school :(

ShokBaton says:

Okay, bookbook. Are you a Martian? How about a worm person?

Bubbles says:

They could've forgotten what he looks like becos their insane : milton rupines is a person who sent in a letter saying how much he hated the LOTR movies andcaused controversy

Mogget's Little Sister says:

Pink bunnies are nice and cute and they stop nasty arguments!!!

jUneBug says:

What IS Myhrad's dragon name?

JuneBug says:

Myhrad:Grandma!
XD

spark flare says:

how do you say Myhrad?

spark flare says:

hello??
any one there?
am i talking to myself?
