#285 – “Morning Activities”

Today is a… day. Yes.

This is a page I’ve had in mind for awhile but first wasn’t sure where to put and then wasn’t sure quite how to design. There’s been all kinds of things like how much setup do I need, how much of the page do I dedicate to the actual sparring, do I need the following dialogue in the same page or can I skip it for the next one, etcetera. It’s a page I’ve been wanting to do though because it’s been a whole lot about Hani lately – how she’s changing, where she’s going, all that. This page, on the other hand, is about Te’len.

    Looks like Te’len still has not gotten her sea legs even though she has been out to see for weeks now.

    Nice page, I think it’s pretty obvious that the sailors aren’t watching the fight for the fighting. Also, Areen’s face in panel 2 made me laugh.

    Is that Areen or Rei talking in the last pane?

    Judging by the angle, it would seem those sailors had a great view up Te’len’s skirt in that last pane.
    Sheathed Knife + Friendly Hani = Combat Training

    Dawwww <3 That's so sweet. Never woulda guess that she'd ask Hani to teach her to stab things.
    Is it odd how endearing I find that?
    Though, and let's be honest here, the scabbard is merely a courtesy, not a necessity.

    @sych, the presence of a contraction implies it's Rei.

    @ Earmur Te'len is actually wearing a full-body suit that perfectly matches her skin tone.

    @ the sailors: /watch?v=LsHMliU0WME

      And how couragesly of Te’len. I know how strange it feels to be watched by others when you are losing again and again. Even if it is your teacher who is high skilled with whom you are practising.. And these watchers aren’t pupils too. She really must wanting this. And, i don’t know if it is intended, it brings her nearer to Hani who is really difficult to communicate with. If every way to get to Hani Te’len knows fail so this is could be the way to.

    Y’know, I have a new found respect for Tiny. Waking to find a giant gnome face looming over you is the stuff of nightmares.

    Te’len has reach, but Hani has flexibility.

    Sailor Thomsons log, Eastern Kingdom time: y.25 ADP (after Dark Portal).

    She did it again… walked around on the ship, in that outfit! Me and the lads were looking, but trying not too.
    Those long legs, not a single freckle of complexion on her face. The other men and i are feeling
    like its a mental battle, to see a female figure in sucha outfit! … but alas, she has her guard with her
    The tall silent one…

    Later they did some sparring. HAH! it was great, we all looked on and cheered! a great excuse for oogleing!
    Sailor Michael mentioned that he would try to see if he could get a date going. The rest of us agreed that
    the cap’tn would knee-haul him if he did.

    And the worst part! we wont even be able to find a wench when we finally get to shore, cuss’ em elfs don’t
    have any!

    Oh my Marie, the months will be long before we once more sail in known waters, and the frustrations with this
    log seems never stop rising! … bloody skimpy outfits…. She knows not what they do to those around her!

    Ps: Remind yourself to ask coisin Lu’ about that “Portal trade” he was talking about. Instant travel without
    having to sit through months of months of a boat… sounds tempting right about now!

    Yohoho? :D

      Bosun Ellesdottir’s log, Eastern Kingdom: y.25 ADP

      She did it again… walked around on the ship, in that outfit! Me, Ace and the lads were looking, but trying not to. Those long legs! We got to chatting on the forecastle later; Ace were mooning over her companion. Still haven’t figured if they’s handfasted, though they do make some couple.

      They’s something to look at when they sparred on deck: all strange lines and flashing eyes. Te’len, as is her name, took a tumble, though she did well. Lads as seemed fit to burst. I’ll be tending extra duty for fourday more at least to keep them busy. I know some cozy Dwarven lasses in Auberdine, as be happy to drink them under the table when they get shoreleave.

      Oh my Marie: how I miss you. Te’len knows not what she does to those around her…
