I recently was lucky enough to find the Sailor Fude DE Mannen pen in a local shop! I’ve been wanting to try one of these for a while. It’s basically a fountain pen with a bent nib that’s meant to imitate a brush, producing different line widths depending on the angle at which you hold it relative to the paper. It is super fun to play with.
Q:I love your comic I started it last night and got all the way to the most recent post an hour ago but there has been something that bothers me. Why is it that sometimes Perrault sometimes appears as a cat and sometimes a humanoid. Is it that he is a shapeshifter or is it symbolic? Or is it going to be explained later?
I have a feeling that more people are going to be asking this question by the end of this chapter. :) He’s able to put on a human-ish appearance as a way of dressing up to impress people. When he’s by himself, of course he has no need to “dress up”, so he appears as a normal cat. It’s not really “shapeshifting” per se; it’s more like a change in perception. I guess you could compare it to the wolves in Wolf’s Rain who disguise themselves as humans, or to Hobbes in Calvin and Hobbes who appears as a stuffed tiger or a live tiger depending on who’s looking.
“But what about when you see him doing things that would be physically impossible for a normal-sized, opposeable-thumb-less feline?” Um… uh… a wizard did it?
Kronborg, like Castle Bran, is another castle I’ve actually seen with my own eyes… but the photo on Wikipedia was better than any of the ones I took.
This ship came up when I Google image searched “spaceship”. It appears to be the ship from Andromeda, which wiki tells me is called the Andromeda Ascendant? (I never really watched the show)
The pen I put my brown ink in started skipping, so I dipped the tip in water. This watered down the ink in the feed and made it come out all pale, so I started scribbling like crazy until it got back to normal saturation. Somehow it turned into the 4th and 9th Doctors staring down a bunch of Daleks?
