w00t! First comment! It's 2:44 A.M. EST by the way, so it took some dedication.

And I think Feiht shouldn't have weapons. Nope, bad idea....

Odo says:

Pixies definitely should not be allowed to have weapons, but how are you going to stop them? Leaf has chosen the easy way out, is all.

X-Kal says:

Now wait a second, since when was Feiht able to carry such a heavy weapon? I suppose there is no gravity in the void, so she can't drop it? Because I remember some serious axe-dropping early on in the series...

hkmaly says:

X-Kal: You didn't see that balloons raising it ? Without them, Feith wouldn't be able to carry such heavy weapon, but with them its different ...

Gossamerblade says:

Balloons! I should put balloons on ALL my heavy stuff!

Painted Cello says:

I think the furies may have shifted him, note the redness of where he was...

Sabreur says:

I love the balloons holding the weapon up.

X-Kal says:

Whoa, no, I guess I was never paying attention to them being connected. Though I suppose it's only pixie logic that's holding the thing up!

Bibbedybobbedyboo says:

An army of pixies armed with large weaponry stabilised by helium balloons. Thank heavens for shiny distractions.

Khyrhon says:

Yay! I just got back from vacation last night and read the three comics I had missed. And then I check again today, not hoping to believe that there will be another, and yet there is.

bookbook says:

that is paintball, isn't it?
oh no...

Faticia says:

Ok, WHY is there a spiked ball on the end of that cannon? Do I really want to know? I'm thinking not.
Btw, what happened to Sohac?

Awesome says:

Faticia, it's a MACE... a ball and chain MACE... it's not a cannon! LOL! Nice balloons. :P


Are those not flails?

Lightwing k'Sheyna says:

I worry for Leaf.

Zela says:

Yay, Leaf escaped! Nick of time!
Art comments: Brilliant work, Alien - Leaf is looking very mature these days. Mith, great colouring, but you might want to smooth out the burn tool just a bit - that is what you're using, right? I think the explosion thing in the last panel is lovely! And it's nice to see Leaf in his old clothes again just for a bit.
On another subject, I always thought the Void was black. Black is the absence of colour, and therefore light, since white light is light of all colours in equal amounts. So, Feiht wasn't quite right when she said there was 'nothing'. ^_~7
"foop" is "poof" backwards, I also note, but it's a pretty neat SFX too!

Faticia says:

Ok, now I feel stupid. XD Thanks for pointing that out Awesome.

lylia123 says:

Now those balloons are what I call creative thinking! Go Fieht!

Icy says: she went to the real realm and got a mace, then bought the mace to the Void? Clever. Wait...WHAT AM I SAYING??!!

Nebra Reppalk says:

Technically, that's a flail. A mace is a heavy weapon with a fixed head attached to a handle. A flail has a head attached by a chain to the handle. Sorry to split hairs, but that's what I do.

Aebliss says:

Wow, the furies are actually starting to be useful. o_o Weird ... I hope they remember to stay useful, rather than go vengeful over the slightest slights.

Chariset says:

Technically, isn't that a morning star?

Anyway, it's good to see that the Furies won't let anything happen to their host. That could be useful

Lightwing k'Sheyna says:

Depends on how far they go to prevent harm......
Imagine, someone plays a simple prank on Leaf and the Furies blow them up!

halfdragon_mage says:

wow! it sure is hard waiting soooooo long for each comic to come out!and for some reason it takes like a week to get to my computer! kinda weird? now, feiht with whatever that thing is CANT be agood idea!i feel very bad for leaf.... at least he got out of there before feiht got to him!

nippermon says:


Faticia says:

Is it safe to say that we have firmly established that Feiht's weapon is a flail that is being upheld by balloons? So how in the world is she going to be able to swing it? How will the balloons effect her swing? And how are those balloons with such thin strings holding up such a hefty weapon? So many questions...

Faticia says:

...And so little to do during the summer...

Mithandir says:

Faticia: but is there really gravity in the Void? And if there is, is there Logic there? Especially with pixies around?

*Skittles* says:

Remember, pixies can do anything they think they can do. *shudders* If they think they can hold up something that's VERY heavy with balloons, well, bully for them.

Faticia says:

My world is crumbling... XD
I must admit that I am finding the combination of both the physics in the void (or lack of) and pixie magic intensely amusing. This story just keeps getting better!

Faticia says:

Wait. I just realized that this strip is titled "bedtime story." I am just not going there.
But wait! If pixies can do anything that they think they can; does that mean that Feiht can somehow make hitting someone -I'm presuming that her plan is along those lines, well, with many shinies involved- into a bedtime story??! That is intensely disturbing!

Adi Sagestar says:

Stop arguing over names for the weapon. Instead, you can call it what I call it! The BIG SHINY SPIKY THING OF DOOOOOOOOOM! Neeheehee...

Nebra Reppalk says:

I've found that questioning the physics of a situation with heavy magic content rarely achieves anything.

It's like anime, just shut up and don't ask questions.

Lilycat says:

O.o Uh oh Feiht has a weapon. Does the poof mean Leaf is gone, of the Furies have taken over?

Dragyn says:

Anybody else notice that CtS has been watched by the Evil Overlords?

Great work though, as always!

[Edited by moderator]

CryptoGirl says:

it's so hard not to spoil it, isn't it? it's just so tempting to discuss.

Nebra Reppalk says:

Good Gods! What I said already happened in the PREVIOUS BOOK. And if you haven't read that yet, well you're just a tad behind then, aren't you?

Mithandir says:

Nebra: Yes, I know. But that doesn't mean it happens again in the new book. I'm sorry. I'm in the difficult situation of having to protect about a thousand people from spoilers, so I'm not taking any chances. I hope you understand.

Nebra Reppalk says:

All right, I understand your situation. I grant you complete forgiveness and will tell you now I wasn't going to summon the wrath of my divine ancestors. That's only for if you REALLLY tick me off.

... says:


Oh my God they killed Harry! You bastards!

(Wait, you meant finished the book...?)

thefieryonionofDOOOM says:

I wannna Feiht-bedtime-contraption!

eric says:

there was a much earlier cartoon where Ayne threatened Fieht with her sword, then Fieht conjured up an axe-and it dragged her to the ground!
