I don't pray, but let me wish you good luck anyway. Even if it would mean that you have less time for the comic.
And about the comic, I really like the dialogue here. Brent did warn Thistle he sometimes says the wrong thing sometimes, back when he first offered. Good save, though. He makes her laugh not 20 seconds later, so it can't have been all that bad. And wow is Lyra rude. Orrig really does have thick skin.
EDIT: this is in the wrong category, but I can't delete this thread or start one in the right category.
