Smoking hurts your sense of taste and smell. Modest was stinking up the lake. After Modest left the lake smelled better and Jenny quit smoking. When she came to our world and met Modest again she wanted a cigarette again.
It all makes sense now.
Hey, don’t put the blame for Jenny’s bad habits on Modest.
But it sounded sciency, so Modest would agree 100%.
Jake you should be thanking Jenny. Without her there wouldn’t even be a story.
After that, yeah, the only way they’re gonna let Jenny stay is if she has something that they all really need.
lol Alas, my dear scary mermaid chick; I’m totally with you there! (Not that we can be friends, or anything!)
I love your “characters telling stories” panels and the simple, yet still expressive, ways the characters appear in them.
so she CAN breath underwater…
So is it an error that everyone’s calling her Medusa and not Modest?
No. Jake and Charles (and even Modest) didn’t know her name for the first several months that she lived with them, so they just called her Medusa or The Medusa. It’s only since she and Jake have been back from Yeld that they’ve started calling her Modest, and they still call her Medusa sometimes. They probably think it’s her last name (she probably thinks so too), but it’s more like a series name. We have the Medusa series (Modest, XBox, Glados, Racoon, Shut Up, etc) and before that the Gorgon series (The Gorgon and her sisters) and before that… who knows? Jenny (the Mermaid) is aware of all this. She knows how it works. But like many adults who don’t like Kids, she finds a label for them that isn’t actually their name. Also, she may not actually know Modest’s name, outside of her “last” name. Well, she probably does now, but she may not of before she came through the toilet and heard people call Modest by name.
But they’re referring to Modest specifically, when compared against the rest of the Medusa ‘series’. Isn’t using the series name in that scenario a bit confusing?
In this case they all know who they’re talking about. Plus, Charles and Sarah might not be aware that Modest has sisters at all.
To be fair, she WAS eaten by the lake monster (which also happened to be the portal to Jake’s earth)
