hello from beijing everybody! >w<

@Cannetella: haha thank you!
@siskhi: love the way you follow them XD
@Elizabeth Plaid: i think tristan might get a new hat in chapter 4. that military cap is so last season.
@Stitchedbullet: haha i thought so! that's really cool though, good luck, i can't do the tones at all.
@Bien: that depends if "suul" speaks ;)
@Tiuni: thank you! <3
@Kohikki: in my head at least, he has the same voice that he did when he was human ^^
@Draumur: thanks!
@Aica: i wonder how easy it is to tell the facial expressions of a frog...
@jello-bomb: haha it's going well so far, except for my stomach being all over the place right now >_< so frustrating...
@Gracie Geek: the familiars can speak to any witch or human, just that most of them choose not to. tristan hasn't quite caught onto that yet, but you'll notice ulla's rat and simo's horse never spoke.
@polkadots: damn straight.
@pororocaplanet: thank you so much!
@Mythee: they're usually painful when it's cold actually >_< in the bones, kind of.

I love Tristan's face in that first panel!
Hopefully the plane ride is nice and smooth!

Love the way you put up the pages! C:

Darn, I was hoping for an exchange about frog fashion sense (which I mentioned in my comment on the previous pannel). Good thing Lumi's calling Tristan Suul. Kolya's not ready to know Tristain is the frog.

Frog? In a hat? Blasphemy!

(Whenever you read this XD) I said it's really cute in Chinese on the previous page. C: I'm half Chinese~ XD I'm still learning though. D:

Oh my, they shall keep it a secret? Won't he notice "Suul's" voice though?

July 22nd, 2011, 3:38 am

I wonder if Tristan will know to play along and pretend he's Suul...
Or if Kolya will recognize his voice right away.
That sorta makes me wonder if his voice changed at all from becoming a frog.
Great page as always!

Awesome page! :D

July 22nd, 2011, 9:48 am

Lets hope Lumi and Tristan are good actors ;)

Just keep your adorable mouth shut, Tristan, and it'll be fine... just... pretend you have a frog in your throat. Ooh-er! :P

Hope your trip is going well (...did go well, by the time you get this!)

July 22nd, 2011, 11:13 am

If he speaks, will Koyla recognise his voice? Different body, different vocal cords, 'n all that.
Or will he speak English at all, or do only witches understand familiars, since...well, animals can't physically talk in real life.

July 22nd, 2011, 11:37 am

I was so sure he would say: is that...TRISTAN? And then he was like: a frog...in a hat.
duhh, she's a witch, frogs with hats are necessary.

I LOVE THIS COMIIIIIIC!!!!! hope you have a very nice flight and an even better time wherever you're going :)

July 24th, 2011, 10:10 am

Hoo boy, I hope your flight back is better then D8 (unless that was your flight back)

I looked up pictures of hammertoe and it's really not augh-inducing like the bound feet... (Part of that is that they still look like human feet, and another part of that is that people are born with it, so it's not like a chronically painful injury or anything. ...Or so I guessed o-o;; ) and for lighter cases it seems like you can keep the toes positioned in shoe-friendly shape using tape but if I were you I'd probably use it as an excuse to wear sandals with socks all the time. (I love to wear sandals with socks! xD)
