Once I had my shop set up on the sidewalk, the one person who bought more flowers than anyone else from me was the real-life Chelsea. She would buy at least one flower — usually multiples, in fact — each and every day once I moved the bench to the front yard. I doubt she was being threatened by my older siblings to do so, but at the time I still had to wonder what had triggered her fascination with my sculptures. Our epic feud was put on hold so she could buy a rose and a few daisies. Go figure.

Also, yes, the bandage on Chelsea’s face is indeed directly related to the previous story. Hooray for continuity!


Miles, I rename you pedocat. Although he’s probably actually not much older himself. But seriously, he doesn’t even get the concept of gift giving. Everything has to ultimately be for his benefit. Is he a walking cliche at this point or what. You know what I think? I think right now would be a great time for this story to turn into a gender bender. I think it’s an overused and tiresome premise normally, but I think it would be perfect in this case. And then female Miles needs to meet a male just like male Miles who tries to get into her pants in absolutely disgusting ways, and she’ll be like “is THIS what I put them through?”

Maybe that’s what Sesame saw in her dream? Her home being destroyed and her father dying?

perhaps….the more I think about it, Sesame as a character is a lot like some of the main protagonists of the following Studio Ghibli films as far as backstories seem to go:

– Tales from Earthsea

– Nausicaa: In The Valley of the Wind

– Princess Mononoke

Interesting… What sort of artifact we talking ’bout here? We talkin’ ’bout W.O.M.D. sort of artifact of somethin’ like “feed the hungry and do lotz of good thinz” artifact?

Currently getting a d!ck-ish vibe from King Alder. To be that old and frail and have a 21-year old son… T’is good to be the king, isn’t it?

I wonder if he’s insane?

He’s meant to be in his 50s or so, just very sick. Drayven is his eldest child though – so yes he had a younger wife, nothing less for a king!

like what Mel Brooks would say in his films “It’s good to be the King”

Like the sabre tooth tiger, but what kind of animal is the grey one talking to the king? Your characters are always so intriguing and also cute.
