Ladyfox7oaks says:

Poor Leaf! Tormented by dreams of the Furies I presume? Though Ayne looks so much more mature in that third panel - I'm surprised they haven't suggested the Pixies go torment the Sea-King instead...

Fiore says:

Oooh! Especially nice job with the text on this one.Love it!

Mithandir says:

But does anybody know the original verses?

Coyote says:

It sounds like The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

Coyote says:

Bleh, nevermind, I just saw the title and I guess everyone knows this :D

dragonqueencr says:

I know the second one is water water everywhere and I think the last one is based off the one with Mudville and Great Casey but I do not know the other ones.

Black Mantha says:

From memory:
Water, water, everywhere,
and all the boards did shrink.
Water, water, everywhere,
but not a drop to drink.

Black Mantha says:

Four times fifty living men,
with not a sigh nor groan,
each of them ..., a lifeless lump,
they all dropped one by one.

Black Mantha says:

Panel 3 is mostly the original version, only it's in singular and from "the land of ice and snow"

Black Mantha says:

And, hey, it looks like children can see pixies.

Tensk1234 says:

Aw poor leaf

Black Mantha says:

Follow the link for the original. It's: Part 2 - stanza 8, 2:9, 2:12, 3:16, 5:20

Mithandir says:

Yup, Black mantha has it right. That's the same page I used for a base :)

Pulsy says:

wow pixies working together :D Funny how that kid is actually pointing at Sohac robbing the purse in staid of alarming the grownup :D

Nebra Reppalk says:

That girl is an albatross, Captain.

The way I understood it, an albatross was good luck until some idiot decided to kill it. Yes, I've read a poem, try not to faint.

eric bloedow says:

if i remember correctly, humans who believe in pixies can see them, humans who don't beleive in them can't. the kid is trying to point out the pixie in the purse, but the man is staring at the bubbles, which he CAN see.

Lise says:

Haha, I knew it was the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Had to read it in high school. ...Not that I really liked it... but this version is great!

Lee says:

Oh, yes, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Wasn't that by Bruce Dickinson? (Ducks)

thenablessed says:

I absolutely love the third panel--gorgeous! ...along with the rest of the comic, of course! :)

Lise says:

That last panel must've been a pain to draw... it looks amazing though.

Mogget's Little Sister says:

Ladyfox, Leaf is having nightmares about pixies, not furies. Right?

Great comic today! I can't wait until the next one!

Ehrenmann says:

I just finished going through the archive and reading through. Right as I realized this was the latest page I let out a long, low cry of anguish.

Painted Cello says:

Maybe Leaf is having nightmares about both pixies and furies?

*Skittles* says:

I love, love, love the last panel.

*Skittles* says:

In panel 4, is the girl looking at the pixie or the pretty colors?

xp194 says:

Most likley, children can see pixies, as they haven't been "logicalised" like the adults have.

Kaiou says:

Yes children see pixies because they haven't gotten to the age of non-believing.

queeclite says:

May be im a mourner may be i deserve to do something else.
Need to feel the sense.

kickme says:

Any idea when the next one is going to be up?

'unkown' is a bit vague (;

tom says:

Ese says:

I'm shocked I found this comic only just now XD Love it!

wolvercote says:

I really love this page, it's fantastic. Good job with the rime, and I adore the last pane, it's beautiful ^_^

Mogget's Little Sister says:

Wheehee the note says IOU (NOT!)! I love that!!!

Wawuty Gibit says:

Wawuty Gibit says:

Fionn says:

Cue the Iron Maiden music.

hailstorm says:
