Jakkal Writes: I've had a lot of people ask me about the above filler comic. It is from an actual log from the Public RP (About 2 years ago).
But mostly, people want to know why Lorelei has wings.

I thought I'd relate the tale.

For some reason or another, Lorelei was reading through magic books. You see on Kaerwyn, she's not the homeless, forlorn drifter. No, infact she has the largest house in town (Comes from her hording all the gold she had for years) not to mention it was a large blacksmith shop that she coverted into a house... and now I'm rambling. Anyway, she's got a library in her house.

Many people don't realize this, but Lorelei's an avid reader. Like we watch TV, or hang out on the internet, she reads books. Her favorite stuff is non-fantasy fiction, because to her that's fantasy. Irony. Anyway, the Kaerwyn Library blew up at one point, and she scrounged to take as many of the books as she possibly could. This includes a bunch of old magic books. You know, the kind you don't fuck with unless you're trained.

Lorelei never really figured out that lesson, mind you. So anyway, there was some dire circumstance going on that required this magic-fearing girl to tread where she never has before - studying magic books. I think everyone can see where this is going.

Lore + Studying = Sleep. Lore + Sleep = Drool. Lore + Drool + Magic Book = Random happenstance.

And to top it off, she was drinking a RedBull. Redbull drool on top of a magic book. Redbull gives you wings. Literally so, if you drool RedBull on top of a compendium of infernal arts.

While she enjoyed the power of flight, she's not been brave enough to try it again to regain the wings (That she lost during a werewolf attack.)

And that is how the Lorelei got her wings.

So that's how it was. Very little that happens to that girl surprises me anymore.

Knowing the inkling I do about the Kaerwyn universe, did the books "grow back" in the library, or did she just return them?

Anything that's not made or owned by the K-dragons doesn't return or regerate or anything. When something in the town gets destroyed it has to be rebuilt manually. The same goes for the books. She took whatever survived the library's destruction. She's still got them in her library to this day in the RP.

If anything to keep others from using them.

Also note that the public RP has different rules and constraints than the comic. What's true for the RP may not be true for the comic and vice versa.

Quite right, quite right. I was referring, naturally, to RP.

I like it when people gets confused on such tiny things. Even if they should know they are made from rps ^^

RedBull + drool + magical book = wings. And it worked like that.

[critical hit]-> TaileS' mind

What...is going on on Kaerwyn RP!? :D

In Galaxy Quest, the counter stopped at 1 because 'hey, it always stops at 1 in the series too'.
Now I remember that being the last such mental brick with a slip of paper tied to it saying 'this will make you too exhausted to laugh' or 'beyond lol' to hit my head before this.

This is pretty interesting. So how much of the rp will make it into the comic, or would that spoil the comic?

Re: wow.
None of this goes into the comic. This is the public RP we're talking about. It has no relevance to the comics at all.
