And why is it so hard to figure out that he had a long-standing illusion as human on him which he did not know about, and he is transforming into whatever he really is, slowly, because the medallion was not the right one? Or at least, that’s my take on it.
Because when you don’t know that you don’t know something, it’s easy to make yourself believe you do know.
And because most people don’t want to believe they didn’t know as much about themselves as they thought they did.
You guys hurt my brain.
Thus the reason everyone believes in things they shouldn’t ;)
Blue pill, red pill… there’s only a spoon if you *choose* to believe there’s a spoon. You’re only human if you think you’re only human. Often, the truth hurts, and folks choose the comfort of the lie.
Not an illusion; its a painful TF. Dispelling an illusion shouldn’t be painful. This appears to be a transformation.
Is anyone else thinking of his father at this moment in time? His dad could’ve been something and not have told his mom, so they both know nothing about it.
How do they know what sort of medallion is for whichever creature when the medallion is blank?
Well that’s simple. Just keep it written down. I imagine Madame U keeps good records. And it can only turn or disguise the correct species, so the turning tests work for the medallions as well as people.
Blanche looks like a marshmallow in panel 2 :)
I hate to nitpick, but I think you have “dissipate” for “dissapate” here.
At least Anthony makes for a handsome magpie!
Kory, I think you mean dissapate instead of dissipate. Never caught that typo in all my re-reads. Good catch, Merle.
Nope. “Dissipate” is the correct spelling.
(From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:)
to break up and scatter or vanish.
