#117 – “It’s Perfect, Really”

Hooking right into the dialogue from last page, we have this little.. offering. Though I’ve come to believe that Beyond the Tree might actually prove to become a more complete experience when you can read an entire story arc from start to end since all the references will be fresh in memory.. I’ve also come to accept that it is released in an episodic manner and that each page has to atleast pause the dialogue somehow, since it can’t just flow seamlessly across half a week in time.

Both this and the previous page were pretty much scripted together as one entity and only split up after the fact so I’d have space for everything. A page doesn’t have infinite space, so sneaking in all the apropriate panes, expressions and dialogue can take a bit of fiddling.

    While it’s true that NE aren’t nearly as well endowed as human females in WoW, I’m sure there are many who appreciate… well, ‘leggier’ frames. *slowly raises hand*

    Get Te some cut-off shorts and a mid-drift tee shirt and she’d make a great barmaid. :D

    The comment on belves that is only too true they are scrawny and the female one’s have a really sterotypical stuck up laugh that makes me want to just smack some sense into them on the spot in fact that could also be said for the male ones too. I personally cannot stand them out of all the horde.

    As I will say if I see one on my RP realm which I won’t name in case anyone thinks I am a belf basher I will Kill on Sight.

    To think Bloodelves are related or part of the night elf race is embaressing even if they did go seperate ways. Anyhow that’s my horde hating rant over. Off to get some mint tea :)

    Excellent update on the comic keep it up :)

    haha xD awesome how Te attracts all the attention with her yelling about her figure XD

    it’s alright compared to Ne standards but compared to a human they’re to skinny ;p

    and i start to like the barmaid with the accent, wonder how she would sound IRL XD

    so what’s the job suggestion for Hani? :D

    well one of my friend said this in Sweden
    Swedish version
    “night elf är så smala att dom skulle kunna komma i genom ett nyckelhål om det inte vore för axlarna” ((but as i the only one here that speak/know Swedish translation will follow))

    same English goggle translated
    “Night Elf is so narrow that they could come in through the keyhole if it were not for shoulders”

    my translation
    “Night elf are so Thin that they could squeeze through the keyhole if it wasn’t for there shoulders”

    but well cant complain on that i men 80% if not more of blizzards Dev employers are male.
    btw how did Tiny get that ide? dose she wish the life of Te or dose she intend wish to make Te lose her…”virginity” ((best i could find in my word library although not complete what i was aiming on))

    Skinny? What! Never seen those Night elven thighs?

    Oh my, someones abit senetive about how they look it seems :P,, No wonder she is showing so much leg *shakes head tsh tsh* young nightelven women i tell ye… Now i wonder how they are in the sweet 16 years >.> (or 160 or… whatever that sums up to in NE-age). Back to topic! haveing the group with a normal job… its.. BRILLIANT! and infact its new!.. I mean, i was sitting here thinking that they would do what EVERYONE does.. Find some bounty and go merc. However if those 3 were to get jobs in SW… hah! That would be interesting!

    However if Te’len were going to be a barmaid… Gosh, recall that one sailor who tried his luck? … WELL id guess she would meet his club of “Oi there lass!” follow by a “/slap” … which she would most likely reply with a /slap. Anywho, the fun question would then be, what would Rei’s job be :P… Rat exterminator or maby Diplomat!… Hani im guessing guard thing.

    Anywho, loved the page :) shows that even the (formerly) immortal nightelfs are very much human ^^

    they are working on getting their immortality back :)

    when will they meet the horror elwynnn HOGGER!? :O

      .. I am not sure I could handle that.. I mean.. Hogger.. Hogger is epic by virtue of being HOGGER.

      A combat between Hani and Hogger would be.. well, more epic then Murkdeep and his entire tribe of fish. and Hogger has his own clan of Gnolls around too. That might be too much for our hero’s. *Chuckles*

      Page; Pure awesome. I adore the barmaid and for some reason she seems really familiar too me… Oh is that the lady with stuffed Moonkin doll? Heeh.

      And Te is just.. awwww. Poor Te. *Giggles and pats*

  12. June 12, 2009 at 23:17

    Another good issue, and i have to admit, it made me laugh.

    I loved the page, especially the last three images. Te’s reaction in the last image is brilliant!

    Please keep it up! ^_^

    Well Nhani! now u know what thing u need to make for your wallpaper section! Te’len dressed as a barmaid!!
    would love to see it happen!
    Just think about the possibilities for the other 2, like what job could Tiny do? Children’s entertainer?? and Hani ofc bodyguard or your standard adventurer.

    For the rest, keep up the good work!! :)

    I think Hani is still upset about the banishment + the lots of people in Stormwind, she has been saying less and less, particularly post #111 is this a foreshadow of a huge exploson on her part? It would be intresting to see her snap.

    there are not enough healers in WoW to clean up the mess Hani leaves behind when she snaps. bad idea :p altough i hope she kills King Varian >.>

    What I’d find ‘interesting’ about Hani’s snapping is that the results of her actions in that case would not be able to be ‘brushed aside’ by stating she does as she considers is best. I’d say a Hani that snaps would severely burdain said Hani afterwards. Probably, she’s more scared of the prospect of snapping, than of many a foe she has faced in her militant past.

    No update so far, I know. I spent the sunday with the trek of moving home for the summer, combining that with all the packing and preparing it required, I’ve been lacking either time or awake to get #118 assembled. Sorry about that. I’ll try to catch up on thursday; in the meantime, there’s atleast a new voter image of the week starring Areen.

    when Moltrazahn said that tiny could work on [quote] what would Rei’s job be :P… Rat exterminator [/quote] blast it Moltrazahn now you made me think on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daxter he has the same job and some fans have already taken up the simuers of daxter and Tinny. note daxter is an bug exterminator but thats not of importense.

    is it only me, or does Rei seem abit in love with Te? ((I am new to the series and havn’t read what you othes said so this might already be said)) while Hani is obviously in love with both Tyrande and Reane…

      One of these days, people are going to straighten out the English language, to the point that it’s possible to differentiate loving somebody (caritas), which is sincerely desiring and seeking to provide for their good, and being in love. While the latter should always include the former, the same doesn’t apply the other way around.
