Second panel – “unluck” its secrets.
Third panel – Jaspar shows off that you remembered he was missing a hand.
So they are rats, or at least Jaspar was a young rat once. Wasn’t there a time when Marah was guessing if they were rats, rodents, woodchucks, etc and they insisted that they were just pirates?
uh huh. So their species is called “Pi Rat”, although they refer to themselves as “Pirate”. They are actually very normal rats who have been given humanoid size, capabilities and intelligence through a complex mathematical formula that people in Yeld refer to as “Math Magic”. In the Pirates of Yeld story we see that the spell can be used to turn them back into rats. Pi Rats reproduce as normal. we haven’t seen any female Pi Rats yet, but they exist.
So to be clear this is an entire species that has had its nature shaped by someone who thought puns were funny.
Pi Rate…which means they have just over three-and-a-tenth of something, right?
Which someone is thats? >o.o<
I think you have a typo in panel two: “unluck”… although I do love the concept of stealing the luck from something to render it ineffective.
I don’t comment often on… anything really. Thought I would add that I am digging this story.
Thanks. That U looks so much like an O I guess my eyes just passed over it.
“…and a way home… ”
You might have convinced Marah until that part slipped out!
A cautionary tale, to not end up like Jasper- jaded and unable to believe in magic and wonder when talking to a giant serpent about a girl who was a vampire’s apprentice
I cut some bits here where Jaspar goes on about how that kind of stuff may exist in Marah’s world, but Yeld is a more realistic place.
You are my favorite person.
(I’ll apologize to everyone else sheepishly later)
Well, that would have been a fun line.
I found out about MM…I think it was some time last fall…and I mainlined it…and I just wanna say, it’s a hoot!
