A fun stop.
I want to know who Adam is.
Go figure, Hetty. Typical.
Why does Renard seem so... uninterested?
I'm suddenly imagining a support group for possessed toys. Or maybe a union.
pink floyd leedle grunt
I hardly think that Annie would approve of being called simpering.
So, Adam perhaps deserving... but Annie a 'simpering miss...', I think not. Hetty doean't know Reynardine's true relationship to Antimony and this is a Very Good Thing. now, where's we be going Rey?
So... she's also a woodland spirit trapped in a doll?
Is this going to be a red herring, where what we think Adam did to her is really minor and she's just being melodramatic, only to discover she's being completely serious and Adam is actually a completely abusive monster?
Something tells me it won't be as fun a stop as you advertise, Tom. :/
What the Miyazaki is going on here?
Also, theory coming on; the plan involves needles. The chapter icon in the list of chapters is a kit of sewing needles. I have one very similar to it. THERE WILL BE NEEDLES, PEOPLE! NEEDLES!
I hope she's not planning to use mercury. While no amount that they could gather would kill Adam, it would certainly cause great damage to him.
i miss snarky renard plush
I'd like to hear Adams side of this story.
Annie used to lock Reynard in a box, would hetty call that an evil terror?
Do unto others as they do unto you.
Nothing wrong with that. Reinstated as Vindictive Prankster. Still adore her design.
Ah, yes, it now makes sense.
A touch of greenery in the last panel. A rare sight for Reynardine these days.
Have we seen this character before? Maybe I missed something that happened awhile ago. Also, when do we see more Kat and Paz?
I like fun stops. :>
They look so cute together!
I'm guessing she's something similar to what he is then, but with an unpleasant master.
Maybe she killed someone? Maybe she's just a victim? I'd like to help if I was at GC, but then I think that'd only be because "OMG SO CUTE!!! ^_^" and possibly not wise.
Even admitting the fact that plush Renard isn't that smiley, Renard doesn't seem to be enjoying Hetty's company much. Could be that Hetty is a bit to dastardly for him, or not dastardly enough, but most likely Renard just has other (Plot related?) things on his mind.
Plot Twist: "Adam" is a perfectly civilized gentlemen, Hetty is just a big narking bitch who resents Adam curbing her destructive horribleness.
Evils he's done to you? Oh! You're one THOSE kind of dolls...
From the way she goes on I have a feeling there are more sentient toy people out there.
Adam sounds like a peasant. I hate the Peasantry. Revolting creatures.
You know, I think I like this little lady. If she's telling the truth about her circumstances, then she's revealed herself to be assertive and resourceful.
HOO boy... Wait this guy played with DOLLS?!?
Hetty MUST be that girl who was after the rabbit!!
So she's just getting revenge. Fair enough.
A wholly unexpected storyline, and it looks like it will turn out very interesting. And great art as usual.
Where are these perculiar fellows headed off to?
is she a china dool? and also; awww, she looks so cute!
So is Hetty somehow bound to this Adam fellow just as Renard is bound to Annie? Interesting!
This gets better and better! Hetty is an extremely cute evil boozy SPIRIT TRAPPED IN A [WHATEVER THE BRITISH EQUIVALENT OF BRATZ IS] DOLL!
...And now I wonder what horrible things Adam did to her. Tommm, why must you be so mysterious?
...Wait, that's the entire point of the comic. Nevermind.
And... it just hit me. There are more. Trapped. Spirits. In the Court. (:| )
Ooh! Plot twist!! YAY!!!
So Hattie is a creature of the forest condemned to live as a doll is she? Intriguing....
And yet more questions arise...foremost among them why a high school-aged boy has (had?) a little dolly...
So she's both possessed and "owned", like Reynardine, but hasn't made friends with her master like he has.
This does not compute.
Is she some sort of Chucky's bride? ;)
So she's also a deity/entity trapped into a body and chained to a master. I like her.
Simpering is a good word for it.
What will happen!?
Why do I have a feeling that her...master? simply won't let her do the hideous things she wants to do.
A doll, bound for vengeance? Could this be related to the "Sennentuntschi"-Motif found in the alps? Though she would be a bit small for that...
I'll say it again: Wow. Looking forward to learning more about Hattie! I wonder how Adam hurt her and why...if dollies were alive, I'd be terrified because there are some pretty vicious owners out there! Rey doesn't seem very upset with Hattie's calling Annie 'simpering,' but he seems very preoccupied today.
Red eyes. Orange dandruff. Run, Reynard!
So, what alchemical symbol does Hetty have on her head, binding her to that body? Sulfur? Magnesium? S-Silver?
OH SENTIENT TOYS. I GET THEIR CONNECTION NOW.
So she's owned by someone terrible then, I presume?
I seem to remember an old saying "A fellow-feeling makes for strange bedfellows".
Now I'm going for the "possessed doll" trope that others have suggested. Hetty is almost saying it outright.
Ooh, this reminds me of vengeance demons...
I concur. They are going to the League of Possessed Toys Meeting.
Also, Rey, you are a pushover.
Maybe she does have a sympathetic motivation? Only time will tell
It must be a long walk. Thank goodness for trees. Just turn arround while I take care of this "stop".
Hetty may be my new favourite
I still don't understand what she is (besides evil) and why she knows Rey. I also don't get what this adam guy could have done to warrant such punnishment.
Oh I see! Hetty is the same kind of creature as Reynardine!
Aha! The plot thickens!
(Nothing worse than thin plots.)
Simpering Mistress?!?! Wait till Annie hears that! Miss Floaty Fancy Fiber Glass won't be making any more comments!
The ever-growing story of guys and dolls.
Fun stop? Have no clue!
This girl=Danger. Also hopefully a VERY fun stop. :)
Ah, she's a trapped spirit, huh? Evillll.
So there really is a support group for demon-possessed toys? Good to know.
Is 'like' in the air?
Do we know who Adam is? I tried checking the cast list but there weren't many names.
Maybe they have a union.
I simply love Hetty's hair, and those orange thingys that float aroun her... What are them?
Simpering ... good way to describe her.
Reynard's tail is so cute!
Poor Reynardine doesn't look like he's enjoying himself lately... :( Maybe he misses Annie?
:O really excited to see if she's another being possessing a toy! New characters!
Well, "simpering" is a little strong. Rey strikes me as a loose-leash sort of creature in any case. And, of course, there is that little difference that he loves Annie and she, him. Except for the time he tried to kill her.
I'd gotten so used to Renard being Renard, but THEY'RE BOTH TOYS HERE.
Who is Adam, and is he really a dick?
Will he and Annie and Renard and Hetty go on double dates?
ONLY THE PROGRESSION OF ODD-NUMBERED WEEKDAYS WILL TELL!
She used 'we'. Does that mean, one, that she too is a possessed doll like Reynardine, and two, there are more possessed dolls besides Hetty and Reynard?
"A fun stop"? And the mystery thickens.
bad news dolls are
Reynardine, in the attic, with the poison.
CALLED IT! League of Evil possessed toys
So, Rey ISN'T the only toy in town possessed by a spirit and "owned" by a mortal? Hmmm, he probably got lucky since Annie's descended from a fire elemental.
He is providing assistance to the doll... He has... changed, since the inception of his character in the comic. :3
I bet that the big horror she went through was something like being put in adam's mouth when he was a baby, or something similar.
i figured out what the orange dandruff falling from her head is! HgO, (mercury oxide) which is a compound orange in colour and is composed of mercury (quicksilver) and oxygen (air). YES! i just figured out the chapter. maybe i shouldn't run it for everyone else...
Let's face it, Hetty And Reynardine make a cute couple.
I bet Adam didn't actually do much
@Zirka: "What the Miyazaki" LOL (really). I wonder how many others will get the joke?
I get the feeling Adam is the headmaster. just a hunch.
