– Another ask! Thanks for your patience.
– Here’s the March Sticker of the Month for Patreon backers. Starting this month I’ve reduced the sticker cost of the sticker pledge to $15. If you’d like to learn more or support my patreon please check out this post!
LEGO steering wheels are a healthy, though not inexpensive snack, high in dietary fibre for peckish hair!
See, that was going to be the punchline, but I guess most readers don’t remember that. Every time I reference it no one knows what I’m talking about.
Well, I remember.
Her hair is too thick to be stuck in those anyway.
I was going to go with cigarette butts.
So, is she DMing and the snakes playing or did she just steal all the DM’s stuff?
i think the snakes are like her DM helpers. They keep the pages book marked, hand her notes and move all the miniatures.
People like snake-girls here, right? https://i.imgur.com/stXLD74.jpg?1
Safe for work! The artist is ‘sookmo’ on Pixiv.
(Should we only send these to your mailbox? Not trying to start a flood of cute but off-topic snake-girls, lolz!)
No, thats fine. Post things that you think people here will like (although you might get a better response on the discord)
No idea where the discord is, but I updated my membership.
My old PC couldn’t work with it, but the new one seems fine. I’ll try searching for Modest.
Here’s an invite: https://discord.gg/YsW3D7
Boo! It expired, and I’m super busy until Wednesday :/
I searched Modest, Modest Medusa and Jake Richmond… couldn’t find anything.
Sorry. I keep setting it to “never expires”, but it always does anyway. Here’s another invite: https://discord.gg/M9sMdb
Well, there’s no accounting for taste.
Thank god, none of it’s expensive. Also no frozen mice.
but the question remains, where/how does her hair poop?
Maybe there’s an upper part of her GI tract in her head, and her brain is in her tail. “It’s life, Jim, but not as we know it.” Otherwise, I guess it’s one of the many things the Greeks didn’t think of when they came up with this stuff.
Sneaky is about to eat the dice.
That doesn’t seem to be Sneaky to me…
Sneaky is a crap-shooter. He’ll roll a nat 20 for Modest, no sweat.
Hey, where’s today’s pic? <:( Jake must be busy.
I totally forgot to post it.
Has anyone yet asked the question of what happens to whatever the Hairsnakes eat? Snakes don’t chew, of course; they swallow things whole and digest them slowly.
Where does the partially or wholly digested food go next?
By default, the end of their own digestive tracts are connected to Modest’s skull. The notion of four snakes periodically shitting into her brain doesn’t seem like a functional system.
So here’s my anatomically acceptable theory:
I can’t recall we’ve ever had a clear look at the back of Modest’s neck from behind, as her hairsnakes tend to drape down like regular hair for a bit before curling back up as they choose. I’ll therefor feel free to assume that the more conjoined parts of the snake “body” extends down the back of her neck as far as her shoulders. Within this portion is where the 4 snakes “stomachs” combine into a single tube, which from this point enters her body at the base of her neck (possibly two parallel intestines, one to each side, perhaps disappearing between her collarbones more to the sides of her neck… though we’re now stretching into the territory of things that would be visible in Jake’s drawings if they existed; it actually wouldn’t look bad, I think; like a pair of pig-tails that just disappear behind her collarbones instead of dangling freely).
From this point, the snake-intestines travel within Modest’s main body cavity to rejoin her primary digestive system. Whatever the Hairsnakes ate would have to be reasonably far digested to pass through these narrow intestinal tubes, more or less liquefied (with snake stomach acid adding moisture to help everything slide along smoothly).
Well, that’s a workable theory from someone who spent some time studying anatomy for a nursing program, and is decidedly less gross than imagining snakes shitting into her head. What’cha think, Jake?
That sounds feasible to me. So far the closest thing we’ve seen to an explanation was Marah’s imagining of Modest’s head full of snake poops in season 2.
Unless she has a totally unexpected anatomy. Because nature is weird.
Or what doesn’t get digested gets coughed up later by the snakes while she’s sleeping, like how owls bring up the fur and bones of rodents they’ve eaten. There could be a whole mess of snake hair pellets under Modest’s bed. Who knows what that’s doing to the dust bunnies!
They may even do a Roger on it, transforming the pellets into something else. Think they could cough up chocodiles?
