ooh, and first comment (:

X-Kal says:

Silly, silly km :P

Though I wonder where they were housing the elf while the whole ordeal was going on.

Mogget's Little Sister says:

very funny. Keep up the good work!

Odo says:

Alien -- really wonderful work with the expressions on Ayne's face. It is also very clear now that her skin is changing hue.

Lovely strip as always.

Tensk1234 says:

um...birthmarks, thats what they are.

Lee says:

Ah, spam off, ya feckin eejit.

Chariset says:

Feiht stole Ayne's necklace in panel 5!

Dark Dragon says:

whoop-de-freaking-doo. People who don't live up to stereotypes. That elf seems to deserve being kicked out of her room...stiiiill...nice faking Ayne! (and nice call Chariset. I wouldn't have even noticed. :) )...I don't like politicians... not even ketchup can fix the way they taste.

Pulsy says:

wowww look at that room in panels 2 and 3 ... lovely! Good job drawing that perspective Alien ^^

Aerinelf says:

xD Nice timing on the dwarf's part.

Mogget's Little Sister says:

Oh yeah, the necklace is gone! Good eye!

bookbook says:

wow... awkward moment avoided just in time...

Skreyola says:

hehehe... Love the line about forgetting the dank and dark. :)

Nebra Reppalk says:

I thought the stereotype was that dwarves were a bunch of gruff, reserved warriors.

Jynx says:

Well, I think they are living up to the 'gruff, reserved warrior' stereotype pretty well...

Jynx says:

Actually, now that I think about it, wouldn't dwarves view living in a dark, dank cave the way most humans would view living in a cardboard box?

ThosRTanner says:

Wouldn't it have been Sohac who nicked the necklace? Isn't Feiht in a little cage still?

That elf lady has a nice tan!

hkmaly says:

So dwarves don't have a spare elven embassy in case a civil war happen and some elven kingdom divides ? :-)

Also, it seems that this elves don't have so good army :-)

Nebra Reppalk says:

Jynx: Yeah, you make a good point. Our caves certainly aren't dank. Understandably they're on the cool side, but they're not dank. In fact they're quite comfortable. And darkness, well, we have darkvision so it doesn't exactly bother us too much.

*Skittles* says:

Yeah. Awkward just about sums it up. What's up with nothing living up to their stereotypes? Dragons (well, Myhrad anyway), trolls, Amazons, and now dwarves...

veralidaine says:

Stereotypes aren't any fun. That's why.

lylia123 says:

Who else can't get into the Pixie Forest?

Jynx says:

lylia123: I can't either. The site must be down...Eh. It'll be up again, no worries.

Nebra Reppalk says:

Does anyone else think it's interesting that Christmas trees are a version of an old druid practice?

bookbook says:

wow... christmas eve already? the year passed so fast...
click on my name to find a politically correct, extremely stupid version of "'twas the night before christmas"!

... says:

Okay, colour me confused.
Two strips the guideago said they had to clear "one of" their elven embassies for Ayne. This morning the newcomer complains about the dwarves kicking "us" out of "our" embassy.
In my book that adds up to two or more embassies, including at least one with two ambassadors. With that much space surely a more flexible solution could have been found?
Then the newcomer expresses her delight at seeing "an elven face" around. Not "another" or a "new one". Seems to suggest she's the only elf around (before today) but there are others in the same room even...

Oh, those markings? Birthmarks. Blue birthmarks. Yeah. Would I lie to you?

Seemtorecall... says:

Well...technically aren't they birthmarks?

Jynx says:

Nebra: about the trees...yes,I find it interesting too. I believe it started when the Christians in more ancient times were trying to convert the 'heathen' into Christians. In order for the 'heathen' to accept the message of Christianity, the Catholics adapted pagan/natural religious beliefs to Christianity (hence the Christmas trees, I believe). Their beliefs were that the native people would accept it better.
I have heard that Martin Luther started Trees, but I kind of doubt it, unless he got the idea from a pagan religion.
I mean no disrespect to any other religion under the sun by putting this up!

Jynx says:

Nebra: are you a Wiccan or something? Or just interested in old druid practices (like me ^_^)?

Nebra Reppalk says:

I don't subscribe to any specific religion, but I was raised Catholic.

I enjoy following pagan practices though, scares off the boring people...

Midget says:

Would have been so outta there!
Lovely art as always.
The shading has gotten even better!
Anyone else realize it's over 400?
Really awesome!

bookbook says:

wow... christmas has come and gone... (mostly! you would think that it lasts the whole of december from the commercials on television!)
i was actually raised jewish, and i celebrate all the holidays, but i'm not really sure what religion i am.
it doesn't have as much impact on my life as other things like education, so i don't really worry about it.

Neko says:

Saved by the dwarf!=

JuneBug says:

Ayne: Markings? What markings?
lol ;p

-Norbert- says:

Ayne must be really shocked in panel 5. So shocked her birthmark droped from her cheek down onto her neck and nocked the nacklace away :P

No seariously...
Why is it that in the last and this comic her birthmark on the left side is on cheek and neck, when before it was symmetrcal with the small line on the forehead and the big line on the cheek on both sides of her face?
