Cloaks do need to be a thing again. Especially with the big hoods to keep feathered friends in.
I actually have a cloak!!! Its midnight blue velvet!
I have a black cloak with a red satin lining.
Mine is St. Patrick’s blue, with a black fake-fur lining. It’s part of my S.C.A. garb.
Are you sure it’s blue and black and not yellow and gold?
*spritzes with water bottle*
*whaps with newspaper*
I’ve got two. A deep royal blue with silver interior, and a brown, furlined one :)
I think Cloaks got replaced by their modern and far more utilitarian cousin the full-length Trench Coat.
I have 3, a navy blue one with a nice deep hood (it’s waterproof! courtesy of scotch guard), a simple yet kinda fancy one that’s teal with gold trim on a non-functional hood, and a red crushed faux velvet with a fur collar. The red one also has slits for arms. The big problem with that one is it’s made out of upholstery fabric, and is very itchy. I keep thinking I should re-make it with something less…. stiff. And rough.
I love how Phineas’ midform is still very animalistic. He looks like a teddybear- very different from the much more humanoid midforms we see from modern-day beings. Such a thoughtful detail to add. =)
He’s still pretty new to using his medallion, but he’s just so, so very proud of it.
I take it Worset and Jostica don’t take requests?
Or was Phineas hoping that Wosret already had some Nemean Lion Medallions done, and that one was unused and available for his friend.
I’m guessing that raven is called Muninn, the way Phineas regularly forgets stuff – it looks like it’s reminding him what he came to do in that frame.
I’ve just been assuming that the bird is Ravi.
That would have to be a nifty disguise, since concept sketches indicated Ravi’s not even a mammal. . . .
Bird is not mammal.
*Googles * Um of course, silly me. Though the art I remember wasn’t avian, and would have really bugged you.
I went bavk to check and earlier in the chapter Ravi mentions not being bound to a single form and says he didn’t look human when he was freinds with Phineas. If that means he can look like whatever he wants to I’d say it’s a safe bet he’s the bird.
or int he wonderful world of the awkward it turns out he is actually the cloak he is wearing.
Kory included that art in a sketchbook available to Patreons.
There’s a reference to it, in a painting on the wall of Ravi’s kitchen in chapter 1, page 24.
He would be murdering Phineas if he was awake enough, but as we established, no caffeine.
In small doses, alcohol can be a stimulant, apparently.
Still waiting for that Harpy answer. Jocasta is Greek by origin, assuming Sphinx live at least as long as Gryphons do. She must know about them and I’m now wondering by Wosret’s answer here if she allied Harpies with the Fury version of them which Krory has said are malicious.
And of course the dragons, but that’s big plot stuff clearly.
You’re thinking of the Celean Harpies.
Readers Questions number 9, August 2011
But there’s 4 types of harpies, and in the first frame of the Vision which Michelle sees on page 22 of this chapter there’s an Allelean Harpy in the group.
If I ever had a mid-form, it would look like that: haunchy legs and paw-like hands. But I’d be a Eurasian badger.
I myself would probably go with a full spectrum of different midforms with varying degrees of humanness for different situations.
American red fox. Narrow snout, floofy tail. Haunches and paws. If midforms are carefully-controlled medallion magic, does one use a mirror to envision one form at a time, the first few times?
HOW DID I NOT SEE THAT RAVEN ON HIS SHOULDER THE WHOLE TIME! i go back and see it was there the whole time… i must of been out of it. or it was sphinx magic or something. Ehh not sure but still. Phineas is absolutely adorable to me. i don’t know why i can’t stand Ravi but love Phineas.. maybe for the same reason i love Colin. so much energy.. naive but so easily excitable. dorable fluffy gryphs!~
Well the difference between Phineas and Ravi is that Phineas isn’t being condescending to literally everyone else. Also Phineas is a lot easier on the eyes then Ravi.
mm very much so.. i kinda think phineas is adorable!~
So far, the bird has yet to make a sound.
So we can’t yet be certain if it is Ravi.
Even Ravi would look quiet next to Phineas. Perhaps there just hasn’t been a silent moment for Ravi to chime in yet.
Assuming that the bird is Ravi, I wonder if Phineas is the only one who can hear him.
The answer to your question is that you need a certain amount of coffee in you to do the coffee-deprived murder.
Also, you have to have a caffeine addiction to want to do coffee-deprived murder in the first place. All you addicts are the same. If you’ve never been exposed to it, you’re not as murderous in the mornings. Me and my siblings are good test subjects in that respect: Some of us started, some didn’t. You can tell which, by looking at whether we are morning people all these years later.
I guess you’d call me an addict then as at the height of my coffee drinking I would consume 4 – 5 12 cup pots per day.
Even when I was a kid, before I discovered soda and coffee, I was never a morning person. These days I haul myself out of bed with much less grumbling and I’m actually pretty alert… it’s a few hours later that I actually need the caffeine, once my ‘I’m up!!’ adrenaline wears off.
To your question… I’m really not sure. I’m homicidal if I have to wake up before 7 a.m. as it is…
It was also an age where psychological diagnoses like ADHD did not exist either.
Phineas is protected from harm by his adorableness.
And the bothersome necessity of hiding the body.
Since nobody else has mentioned it:
Likely Lorne ancestor incoming yaaay!
Hopefully it’s Jonathan, whom us folks on Patreon have known of since mid Feb 2015.
Is that bird the phoenix, or Ravi? It might be the bird from Michelle’s vision, anyway!
My money’s on Ravi.
My money’s on Ravi, specifically because of Michelle’s vision.
I don’t think he’s completely got a grasp on his midform yet. XD
If his medallion is as new as he’s implying, even this slight degree of midform is something of an accomplishment. He can likely be expected to manage a wider range with more practice.
We’ve never been given a clue as to the average minimum time it takes to learn how to create a midform.
All we know from Colin in the stories is that it takes more than a day.
His is also among the first medallions. I’d say that if all you want is to stand on your hind legs and thumbs, then this midform is pretty darn good!
Anyway, even Wosret here is basically just standing on his hind legs and wearing proper clothes. Maybe the typical midform we see elsewhere in the comic is a more modern thing.
Well, obviously the raven is Ravi! And Phineas is JUST SO CUDDLY, I’M GONNA DIE!! lol
