I was expecting her to freak out or be scared with that of Martha being a ghost dog, but she’s dealing with it quite well.
At this point, she just rolls with shit. If No ones freaking, she’s not gonn waste time doing so.
Her reaction is a nice balance of “Not the strangest thing I’ve seen (like, even just today), but notable.”
Honestly, this is probably the least-weird thing she’s seen since her turning.
Haha, I like Michelle in the first panel being like, “Did anyone else see those floating letters?!”
She’s watching everything falling back down, noisily.
I know, but can’t a lad try his hand at humor?
Is Martha supposed to look like a puddle when she’s not “physical” for lack of a better term?
I still maintain that Martha was pouting.
You figured things accurately.
Martha looks like she’s happy with the newcomer – and that Michelle will get a wet (?) welcome C:
Yaay! It must be “now” in America again!
Martha makes me think of Nanny in Peter Pan. Biig fluffy dog.
What does she eat I wonder?
I’m not sure what you mean by “now in america”!
The lightswitch, Kory
UK property, US configured lightswitch.
Light switches can be installed upside down, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that that is what happened here. The house is old and was probably wired by amateurs. It certainly wouldn’t be the first upside down light switch I’ve ever seen.
I imagine a family of satyr contractors :-p
HA! No, I wouldn’t call this “wired by amateurs”. Just “wired by somebody not paying attention”.
“Wired by amateurs” would have to be the apartment I used to live in, when I was working for Texas A&M-Commerce.
The only light switch that actually controlled the lights in the room it was in, was the switch in the master bathroom.
The switch for the kitchen was in the laundry room.
The switch for the laundry room was in the living room.
The switch for the living room was in the kitchen.
The switch for the master bedroom was in the hallway outside the bedroom.
I’m not joking… except for that one light switch in the master bath, every switch controlled the lights in some OTHER room.
Either the people who wired the electric were amateurs, or they were doing drugs.
My parents’ new house had something similar, with a lot of switches set up to be hit as you were entering the appropriate area, rather than if you’re already in there and think “it’s getting dark.” We wound up putting post-it labels on all of them until people adjusted.
Wow, and I thought it was bad when my bedroom’s light switch was in the kitchen.
Another possibility occurred to me while I was re-reading this: If you have a space like a hall or a stairway or a large room, you may want to be able to turn the lights on or off from either end; that’s what 3-way switches are for. They have to be designed for it, and the wiring isn’t as simple, but it’s practical. Then, it doesn’t matter if the switch is pointing up or down, but whether it’s pointing in the same direction as its mate.
Granted, we haven’t seen such paired switches yet, but are they actually ruled out?
Well, in Oz, we have to wait for ten/eleven hours for America to catch up and have the same day as us. There is a running gag of my friends asking “hey, is it “now” in America yet?”. In other words, we’re wondering if the time zone has swung ’round to the point where the good people of the two American Continents are in the same day as us. It’s not a criticism, it’s a celebration. Most webcomic reading is done in the afternoon, after work, anyhow. But it’s a standard shorthand comment for Australians.
I’m sorry if I’ve worried you with the light switch thing: We’re currently renovating our house, and so I’m noticing them more. If it helps, they often do get installed upside down. Plus there was a house in Tasmania which had some hanging light pulls, and some switches, in the same room, for the same lights. Pull the light pull, then turn it off at the wall on the way out, and hey presto, it’s upside down till you do the reverse. No big.
Sorry about misunderstanding what you were referring to.
Yeah, I know all too well about time zone differences. So used to it, in the online chats.
Oh I didn’t know that, that’s a funny expression, I like it!
>What does she eat I wonder?
Hyde: SHE EATS THE SOULS OF CHILDREN
Isaac: She does not!
Hyde: HIDDEN EYES THAT ARE LIKE COAL WITH A WHITE DOT IN THE MIDDLE
Isaac: Shut up!
Perhaps she eats Fear, Hyde! That would cause you all sorts of problems…
The ghost of a bone perhaps? It would make it easier to feed her. Eat a good lamb roast for dinner yourselves, then serve her the ghost of the leg bone for breakfast.
Heh. Naughty Puptergeist.
Hey, at least the furniture isn’t getting chewed on. ;-p
Wait is Martha a ghost dog or a dog ghost?
Also just got the revalation, but now Ghost dog!
It’s cool they can still stroke her. :)
WHAT A GOOD DOG THATS TEH BEST DOG IVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE I LOVE THIS DOG
Michelle’s either drifting back to human, or at least a wingless midform. I’ve noticed that wings kind of come and go with everyone else in the house, except maybe the mother.
The events in this and the previous page, happens straight after Illumination chapter 1, page 40.
Some stuff happens in the house over the next 5 pages in chapter 1, then Michelle, James, Ravi, and Martha return just in time for dinner, in the final page of chapter 1, page 46. It is there, that we first see Michelle’s midform.
