  • Yup. As if we needed any more pointers this woman was evil. And fingers crossed the expert the mercenary guild brings in to validate the head isn't Gwendolyn.
  • Clearly, this comic understands how to subtly make the reader dislike a character very quickly and very strongly. This woman spoke about four sentences, none of them too harsh or clearly out of line, and already she almost ranks up there between Do…
  • Granny Smith said: Sparklies and shinys everywhere!  And the background conversations, especially those in the last panel... brilliant!  (my ribs hurt from laughing.... I've experienced dinners like this!) Thanks for convincing me to go…
  • John said: I really don't understand the point of AU's. The events that the author of something makes are canon. No amount of wishing will change it. The point isn't to change the canon, through wishful thinking or anything else. …
  • John said: Eh, you have valid points, but it still feels lackluster and disappointing to me. Oh well. Well, I guess there's no way to change feelings. You can't please everyone, after all.
  • John said: The readers are led to believe that Thistle has an appearance under the hood that makes everyone terrified of her. That she is somehow disfigured. An appearance that wouldn't sit well in the fantasy setting. I figure it would be…
  • John said: I gotta say I am rather disappointed by the reveal.  All of this build-up to her not fitting in with society, looking truly inhuman, alien, or monstrous instead she looks like a cave elf. I feel this ruins her character since there …
  • John said: I gotta say I am rather disappointed by the reveal.  I thought she would be outside the norm of having something close to a humanoid face.  Instead she looks like a cave elf. I feel this ruins her character. Sorry you feel …
  • DreamAfflicted said: Now I'm excited for the backstory behind it! Was she always like that? Was she raised by humans? How did she first get involved with the Drath? Do cave elves use magic or is that something that makes her unique? SO MANY QUE…
  • wolfgirl279 said: DAMN! XD I know we/DOTL wont actually be able to see her fully until some point that you have in mind (or maybe that comes next idk, but I am so excited! I didnt think that thistle wold have fangs! that makes me curious be…
  • Bum said: My main problem with the cave elf theory is http://www.daughterofthelilies.com/dotl/213 I just can not understand her being surprised that she even scares cave elves if she is one. Not a bad point. And believe me, I'm fa…
  • *scree* But seriously ... arghhh! Okay, no way of dealing with this seriously. What is that? Are those claws? How do her gloved fingers look normal? Is that some kind of "divine" (dunno what else to call it) magic sparkling in her eyes? Does it not…
  • Oh, my. I won't get my hopes up and believe this is really it. "But Meg said 'one of the last chances you have to discuss your Thistle Theories with one another', and this really looks like this could be it!" Of course this is just a ploy. Actuall…
  • AngelicDragoon said: Hmmmm *Goes to Google* Search Results "Empaths are highly sensitive. Th is is the term commonly used in describing one's abilities (sensitivity) to another's emotions and feelings. Empaths have a deep sense of knowin…
  • Once again, so many great things about this page! 1. Glad to see Thistle does indeed take no exception at Brent's inelegant handwriting, and is even kind enough to reassure him. Awesome Thistle is awesome. (Even better considering we get another p…
  • Skalla_Resco said: I think maybe it wasn't that Thistle was holding onto his arm super tight but rather he was reaching to grab her hand but she moved away before he was able to. Now that you say it, that does seem more likely. Stupid…
  • p_stein said: orrig's signature is sick, I love it Who wouldn't? But yes, it's cool. Nothing fancy, quick, efficient, strong hand, and well-practiced, by the look of things. Just like the man himself. And poor Brent ... Thistle probab…
  • There are some characters in this comic that you like almost instantly. Thistle ands Orrig are prime examples of that, in my opinion. And there are those you might be luke warm on first, until you get to know them better. And then they are the best …
  • Phew. Bummer. Well, I guess all these delicious pieces of information couldn't keep coming forever. And I guess getting the plot moving forward again is, strictly speaking, somewhat necessary...
  • BellisPerennis said: I don't know if Brent already loves her yet; although I may have read to many shoujo mangas in my life; but I hope we get at least one scene were he thinks about her and realizes that he loves her. A bit of arkwardness befo…
  • One more thought: Maybe it wasn't the drath summoning, but the "exorcism" that disfigured/otherwise changed her. It wouldn't be the first time (although historical parallels may be less than accurate) that such an undertaking comes at a cost and lea…
  • May said: Hello! I definitely think Thistle was involved in some sort of ritual that involved the Drath. My personal theory is that something went wrong during that ritual and not only was she left with an Echo, but she was physically marked …
  • Drath tend to twist any good qualities they find into evil, I think. The adaptation would be more or less voluntary, like the drath using what he finds (characteristics, abilities, memories) to his own advantage or pleasure. For example, you could s…
  • In the spirit of getting prepared to switch to this forum for discussion, I'll leave here what I wrote on the original site this once: I'm a bit surprised we get more information on our mystery "light drath" so soon. By now, I'd have expected at l…
  • Certainly possible, especially if the summoning somehow went awry. Yes, we've seen "drathification" doesn't always disfigure the victims, but maybe there are exceptions? Like the drath in question or the summoner specifically seeking that outcome,…
