Awesome says:

Never challenge a Pixie to a battle of wits...

Chariset says:

Nice going, Ayne..

Why don't you bet the nice Amazon pearl next?

Pulsy says:

Oh noes, Aynes make-up will be crooked next comic :P

Lee says:

As always, Myhrad's dry sarcasm spices the strip's humour.

bluedragon_012 says:

need some work ayne.. pixies are well.. trained yha thats the word..

Eri says:

Wow. I can't believe Ayne still had that mirror on her at all... Feit was slow!

Arya says:

For Bath and Glory? What is that supposed to mean? Nice strip Anye's eyes look pretty big in the last panel.

Nebra Reppalk says:

Well, the usual exclimation is "To Death and Glory!" Usually followed by a muttering of, "Hopefully the latter opposed to the former." Anyhoo, since our intrepid heroes are adventurers who have spent some time outside without a bath, it is reasonable to assume they are much in favor of taking said bath.
(Trust me, I spent a week backpacking in the outlands, and the first thing you want to do when you get back is shower.)

bookbook says:

hah! well, maybe they can make some kind of deal. or the hell's pixies will show up again, or that weird pixie Feiht found early in the comic.

Windseeker says:

Never challenge a Cecilian when death is on the line! - quote from Princess Pride, during the battle of wits.-

raisin says:

Don't you mean Princess Bride, with a B?
Love that movie... did you know that the giant flesh eating rats were actually a troupe of midgits in costumes? They even have their own gredits at the end of the movie.

raisin says:

whoops-i mean credits, with a c. (haha)

Corbeau says:

Feiht is funny ^^
And OH NO! Leaf is going to make up another plan! Hide, everybody!

Watermelon who IS NOT HERE says:

shiny new laptop; don't tell feight.

elvenfairy says:

that certainly was a short battle!

Katara101.9 says:

SHIIIIINEEEEEY! Feiht is SO funny, But I must say! Where does she KEEP IT ALL!?!

Lightwing k'Sheyna says:

Ayne's look of surprise, 'did-that-really-happen-just-now' and confusion in panel five is hilarious.
Probably somewhere where it is promptly forgotten.
"Out of sight, out of mind" is a pixies motto (or it should be).

Nebra Reppalk says:

The Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies. Quite humorous frankly. "Good work today Wesley, sleep well. I'll probably kill you in the morning. Three years he said that to me."

Kirie says:

You should read teh book. Ten times better than the movie and you get to read all the things that the movie missed out on such as what happened AFTER the fire swamp and why she REALLY left him.

Kirie says:

And I totally meant the, not teh.

Ingeborga says:

Hello world! I'm from Latvia, I now have a computer and Internet! It's so interesting here! But on some forums I see strange posts, they offer to buy some pills or something and they look very stupid. It is robots posting? I thought moderators should delete such posts. Maybe somebody will explain me what's going on? But at all it is very interesting to speak to all you people!
Kisses! :)

Nebra Reppalk says:

Latvia? That's interesting, never met anyone from there. That would be a good question, where is everyone from anyway? I'm from the heartland of the United States myself. No place that's interesting...

Kirie: I did read the book as well, helped me undersand the plot. (In my younger days I found the movie somewhat confusing.) Of course my Mom said it was more of a "chick" book and she didn't understand why I wanted to read it.
Of course she ended to read those sappy romance novels all the time. You know the ones, big muscular guy with no shirt on and some sappy title. Please, I'm a dude, I need action, adventure, excitement, conflict. (I'm babbling now aren't I?) Anyway, I stand firmly behind the statement that The Princess Bride is one amazing book/movie.

Awesome says:

Ingeborga - Yes, those are bots... never click on one of those links, like the one in the post just above mine. It's called spam and is either there to harm your computer or steal your money - or both.

AnyaDraconis says:

Or masquerade as you on a road-trip to Vegas :P

I'm not a big romance fan either. I think I've mentioned that. *cringes* The only thing I've read willingly that could be subtitled "romance" is Twlight and New Moon. And they are absolutely AMAZING.
But generic romances...no way. If somebody doesn't get stabbed or eaten or blown to smithereens, I get very bored. Very quickly.

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to DIE." I love that movie :)

Mogget's Little Sister says:

Sorry to change the subject, but I'm gonna quote another movie now and you guys guess what it is!

"Aaaaaa! The word that the knights who say neep cannot say!"
"What, is?"
"No, of course not, you can't get very far in the world without saying is!"
(Sir Robin enters)
"Hail, Sir Robin! Did you find the grail?"
"No, I didn't find it."
"AAAAAAA! The word, the word!"
"Well, let's wait for Sir Lancelot and see if he's found it."
"Stop saying that word! AAAAA! AAAAA!"

Feel free to stop me anytime.
That one was REALLY easy but I think that's just the funniest joke in the world.

The play based on that movie is coming to a city that is near mine! SQUEEEE! I saw the play on Broadway and I really want to see it again! SQUEEEE!

Ladyfox7oaks says:

I take a wild guess and say "Monty Python and the holy Grail" with "Spamalot" for the win? Classic movie, and I've heard the show is good, too- have fun when you go!

EdorFaus says:

Nebra Reppalk (and everyone else wanting to know where people are):
There is a frappr map showing where people are - I should remember to plug it more often though so more people join it... :)
Been a good while since it was made, and a while since it was last mentioned too...

Lee says:

Mogget's Little Sister: Actually that's "ni", not "neep".

Dragoness says:

Is it just me, or is Ayne's sword shorter in the 1st panel?

Alien says:

's just you, I'm afraid. They're standing on a hillside.

Watermelon who IS NOT HERE says:

Ni! Mwa ha ha! Mith, you must cut down the largest tree in the forest with a herring! Alien, i want shrubbery!!!


AnyaDraconis says:

Bring forth the holy hand-grenade!!

I think we established that most of us are Python fans a long time ago :)

BiteMe says:

Why mess around with mirrors when you could have the sword? Bad Feiht. THINK!

Disregard that last bit.

BiteMe says:

*I* think we've established that we're all scarily similar.

Nebra Reppalk says:

It's quite simple really. This site attracts a certain type of person. Furthermore, of those people only a certain handful decide to comment. What compels these people/entities/beings/whatevers into commenting is probably the same root cause, whatever it is. (Don't ask me I have no clue) Because these people are similar in motivation they are probably similar in interests, personality querks, behavior patterns, etc. etc.

Unicorn says:

What happened to ayne in the last panel?

Raisin says:

i think you are right, i guess. remember how many of us (including me) found the site from Muse magazine? Im a Monty Python fan too, though that is the only one i have seen. I would see more, but that is the only one i managed to "borrow" from my dad, who loves them. My mum dosnt like me watching them...humph.

AnyaDraconis says:

Raisin, you must sneak off somewhere and watch them ALL!!! BWAHA!!!

Nice insight, Nebra. *applause*

Nebra Reppalk says:

Gratia tibi ago, Anya of the Dragons

bookbook says:

"We don't have a lord. we take it in turns to be the temporary chief executive, for a week."

raisin says:

that is precisely what i try to do on the weekends, Anya. unfortunately, i am unable to drive to a video store and do not know where my father keeps his stash, though i am trying to find it. I have become rather obbsessed, actuallly.
