Hi everyone. Its time for the annual Holiday Modest Medusa sale! This year all of the proceeds for this sale go toward my shipping fund to get Yeld books to kickstarter backers! Thanks for your help and support!
Check out the online store here to see all of the deals!
You literally brought tears to my eyes.
(Now the Theorizing: I suspect that she may have found a way out but is too old to leave Yeld, but Modest isn’t.)
Marah can’t go back because her body’s been altered by both the time she’s spent in Yeld and the deeds she had to commit leading up to Modest being rescued from the Prince.
It’s just like what happened to the boy that became the Knight of Chains. At best, she could come back to our world to visit for a short time, but she wouldn’t be able to stay withiut getting ill or dying.
Nah, she can come back just fine. So could the Knight of Chains. It’s just so many years have passed in our world that it’s now alien to him and he sees no point in staying. Not sure if Marah can use any portal though. In the Yeld Tabletop kids that turn 13 and become monsters can only go home after defeating the Prince.
Actually, thats not true. Marah is bound by those same rules. She’s too much of a monster now. She can’t go home. She knew that at the end of Season 3, which is what prompted her sacrifice. The Knight of Chains was a different situation, since he was saved from that fate when the gorgon transformed him into something else.
Wait ..a …min….a mermaid can cross over but Marah cannot? Huh
Yeah. The Gorgon and Naga have a powerful family spell that allows them (or others who they give it to) to travel between worlds. We don’t actually know if that would work for Marah or not, but at the end of Season 3 Vargas said that now that Yeld had changed her she couldn’t go back, and Marah seemed to already be aware of that.
Marah is alive and well and living in Badass Heaven (no, I’m not letting that go! >;=) and getting glomped by Modest in Yeld.
LT: And her hair! Don’t forget us! We love Marah too! *wraps around Marah*
RB: Yes! you look so awesome! *wraps around Marah, intertwines with LT*
LB & RT: *nom Marah’s horns*
With the horns and without the glasses, it’s still sort of hard to think of this as Marah.
Medusa uses tackle! it was super effective.
Mara used Constrict!
upside of becoming a “monster” you get 20/20 vision . (works at night too) Marah going to get pretty bored standing there for an hour being hugged. Marah: “modest can we move..” Modest: ” NO! I thought I lost you forever! I got you and I am not letting go any time soon. So SHHH!!!” Marah: but modest I have to pee.. and my leg going to sleep.” Modest: “NO! you can just hold it.. and your leg will be fine. now SHHH!” HUGGGGG!
Her vision probably still sucks. She just lost her glasses.
But what if she had new monster-vision like being able to see auras?
TOTALLY worth being blind as a bat otherwise.
In that case, I wonder when she will realise that it is Modest.
Isn’t that most of Yeld? XD
Jake. You dragged this girl though a toilet. landed her in a world where nothing made sense. she nearly lost every one she loves. she fought a battle she pretty much knew she couldn’t win. ( which she won) got killed and lost. you gave her horns (even though they look awesome.) and made it impossible for her to ever return home. Toss the kid a bone please. let he have at least normal vision maybe not 20/20 but don’t need glasses (night vision would be awesome.. but it’s most likely too much.) said with the utmost respect and love for the world you have made. and the art you draw. your talent is what keeps me reading. I just want marah to catch a break.
I will give her glass eyes. Don’t tempt me.
And an eyepatch.
Ouch. I hope Marah can dodge that pen. XD
You’ve got me blubbering like episode 10 of book 2 of Korra when that special character appears in the spirit wooorld.
I’m gonna need a wallpaper of this.
I want lamia hugs too! I’m… dying to get some! (lolz)
I hope that strange look on Marah’s face (on both pages) isn’t because she has no memory or something.
At least this part of the reunion is happy.
Previous comic was all the ‘Dun Dun Dun!’s. This one is all the ‘DawDawDawwwww!’s
Oh lord, she’s ALIVE!!!….Mara is really gonna need some new glasses. The headaches-!
So many tears
^that as myself after read the whole site, dozen of strips daily, after a friend show it (and the RPG) for me =)
wonderfull story, characteres, art! Now, I’ll miss the days when I readed lots of pages, trying discover what will happen next 🙂
PS: sorry the broken english ^^”
MODEST USES HUG!
IT’S SUPER EFFECTIVE!
IT’S SUPER EFFECTIVE! in melting your heart
Weren’t her horns more like a rams before? With the swirly bit? Not pointing straight up. . . .
Yes. They’ve straitened out since then. Uncoiled.
I just hope Marah remembers Modest. My favorite little medusa has had a rough day. 🙁
her heart grew 4 times that day
Just wanted to stop by and say:
One of my favorite aspects of reading webcomics is watching their creator evolve as both story tellers and artists .
You sir, have nailed it .
Just compare the first page (for the art ) with the current one , and you can see how far you’ve come .
And the writing, well, you seemed to have stated off with a general idea about a snake girl living in an unfamiliar world , told through gamer /pop culture , and have evolved that into an overarching story .
I’m really hoping you don’t go back and remaster the comic like so many do . Because that just ruins the journey you have taken together with your readers.
Thanks. I’m not a big believer in fixing old work, but I have wondered if the first volume could use an update. I’ll probably never have the time though.
I agree with your evaluation of the strip, it has come a long way with writing and art, its a must for me to check out now.
