I can only assume that her excuse for not being distracted by her terribly wounded friend is that Parley already teleported him straight to a hospital.

Good to see a resolution to this part of the story after so long. Shame it came at such a price to Smitty though. Looking forward to what's next.

Sure, the ghosts have moved on, but that was a perfectly real and working boat that could probably be a little bit helpful in evacuating the stabbed student? Calling it now, Friday's comic will just be the gang going about their business like normal, Smithy hearty and hale, no explanation.

Next page will be Annie staring at the boat, someone shouting for her urgently, she turns around and looks suddenly alarmed...end of chapter

You did it, Annie and crew. You did what no afterlife guide could before. Does this mean that because Jeanne is gone, her knife is gone too? Just like Mort's helmet disappeared? I get the feeling we're headed for the final chapters of this comic soon...

Jacob C.

No final record either. So was that the real boat that she put them in? I wonder where it goes now. Given the general lack of information about the geography of the court and the wood, it's never been clear where the river comes from or where it ends. I guess they had Parley teleport them down, so they can have he teleport them out now. Did she need Andrew's luck help to teleport accurately though, or am I mixing things up?

This is very pleasant, but why isn't Annie alarmed that Andrew has been stabbed? It looked like it could be fatal, I'm half expecting the next comic to be his ghost stepping up beside her.

Well. That's one thing done.

The boat budget will be fine. Look at all the techno stuff Kat gets just for wanting it. Resources aren't an issue at Gunnerkrigg Court. A boat is nothing.

Like everyone, I worry about Smitty. But Tom and Antimony aren't worried. And Antimony, at least, LIKES Smitty. We will find his case resolved in a satisfactory way. Tom is enjoying our discomfiture over the issue.

After learning Smitty is fine, we will begin the adventure of how the departure of Jeanne and Sweetie affects the balance between Court and Forest.

Stay tuned!

18 Jan 2017 | 9:51 AM
Parsing...

OK, let's parse this. The last thing we see any other character but Annie, Jeanne and Green Denizen of the Woods do is: Kat, running away from the boat with the arrow in its case. So I feel that has to be continued next.

Ah, good catch, Cave Story! (Bonus page of chapter 55) OK. I've got two question though. 1. Is Annie aware that Smitty's dying? (She could have been so engrossed in her role that she wouldn't have noticed anything else) And 2. What is Tom going to surprise us with in next update(s)? I feel this is going to be reeeeaaally special, after all that waiting.

As Psycopomp Annie would be aware if Andrew was going to die, it being her job to direct him thereafter. She does not seem to be concerned, therefore I shall assume that Tom has not overlooked this fact and I shall rest easy until the shoe finally drops.

So...they are finally gone...Smitty aside...im still worried about one issue...what was Jeanne guarding/protecting to "keep The Court safe"

18 Jan 2017 | 1:52 PM
Lurker

Everyone is getting sentimental over Jeanne and Elf Guy, or panicking over Smitty bleeding to death, but does anyone else realize the far-reaching implications this momentous event would have on the rest of the story? Think about it. The sentinel guarding the divide between the Forest and the Court (i.e., Jeanne) is now gone. Now nobody is guarding the Annan Waters. What implications would this have? Furthermore, Jeanne was installed by the Court, and now Annie, the *forest medium*, has removed her. Not to mention, Smitty, the court medium, is wounded and possibly dying. This cannot spell any good for Forest/Court relations, that's for sure.

Now, Parley has successfully unscrewed the knife. However for some reason Smitty isn't moving!! She further uses her medical acumen to perform CPR directly on the gaping wound.

Whelp, looks like Annie's having some real deep thoughts there. You're so emotional, Carver.

Ah, I get it... 'Nothing left' also refers to Annie's etherical scar.

What a waste of a boat.

I mean, Annie's wound didn't show up unless in the presence of these ghostly people. Hopefully she's rushing them away in part because Jeanne's presence fades and thus Smitty's wound fades with it?

Next page is going to be a "the murderer is you!" detective scene, featuring Detective A.N. Timony brilliantly deducting who mysteriously murdered Smitty while everyone was busy watching the boat float away.

Zed This is a beautiful, meaningful and long-awaited moment and all, but I can't help but feel like it would be easier to appreciate if not for a SLIGHTLY *Hearth* PRESSING CONCERN Fixed *

Welp. Looks like that's it for that plotline.

It's surprising how few fans of this comic seem to appreciate pacing.

Good good everyone's been rescued that's great Now turn arOUND AND DEAL WITH THE OTHER SITUATION PLEASE

I'm guessing the next stop is at the ROTD, where Annie & Kat will assist Jeanne & her boyfriend in creating their final records, thereby driving Gunnerkrigg Court fans crazy as the comic ignores Smitty & his fate until February. :)

Yes, The true love happy ending is all very well and good BUT WHAT ABOUT SMITTY!!!

18 Jan 2017 | 6:34 PM

I think his chest wound is only in the aether like Annie's face wound... I want to believe that real bad.

18 Jan 2017 | 7:25 PM
Antimony

One of the books they made me read at the Court was Godel, Escher, Bach. In it, the ideal method for hiding a surpring ending is put forward: continue the story unnecessarily afterward. I should have looked away. As soon as they were out of sight in the white glow, I should have looked away.

Just about every boat in existence has a long rope on it so it can be tied to a dock ... might've been a good idea to hold onto that rope.

Smitty: T...That's beautiful *shed tears *COUGH COUGH COUGH* OH GOD!

I wonder... what would Kat see if she looked at Coyote?

18 Jan 2017 | 9:36 PM

Smitty is bled out by now or, he's all triaged by the crew by now, or it was all an illusion created by Blue, or he's been bipped to the emergency room, or The spirit knife is erased like Annie's wound, or by luck the knife missed all vital organs and arteries, or Mut has taken his spirit to the Real of the Dread, or It was a rubber knife Coyote slipped into Jeanne's pocket, or IT WAS ALL A DREAM.... any questions?

18 Jan 2017 | 9:52 PM

spoopy now we just gotta find out whether or not andrew's gonna bleed to death

18 Jan 2017 | 9:53 PM

Hey, Annie, maybe now is a good time to direct your attention to your probably dying friend? No? Okay...

18 Jan 2017 | 10:26 PM

Great. NOW how are we going to be able to tell when we're looking at the REAL, real-world Antimony or the ætheric... Æntimony?

She was meant to be a guide this entire time. It is her calling. This is the beginning of the end, isn't it, Tom? :(

With all the forest medium stuff I forgot that she is also kinda afterlife guide

And then Parley abandons Annie and Kat to bring Smitty to the hospital :)

I just read through the comments. Gee, people, don't you trust Tom to tell the story? I sincerely doubt Tom just forgot about Andy and his horrible wound. Annie said "Please, hurry" to Jeanne. What's the hurry? Maybe once Jeanne and friend are gone, the dagger and wound will disappear. If not, I have three other ideas: Maybe Annie will be able to say "you've got something on your chest", wipe with her thumb, and the dagger and wound will be gone. Maybe Andy's powers, if he could learn to use them to their fullest, might extend to healing. If he can take a deck of shuffled cards and fling them in the air, with them landing shuffled... can he take an injury and make it sort itself out into uninjured condition? And can he learn to do it really fast while bleeding? Also, it seems possible that Coyote could heal Andy, but likely weird side effects would happen and/or owing Coyote a debt. And I would hate to owe Coyote anything.

Wait... if she disappeared, what happened to her main gauche?!

18 Jan 2017 | 11:59 PM

I totally understand and share the concern about Andrew, but I'm not sure what people are expecting Annie to do about it. She's a spirit guide/human flamethrower, not a doctor.
