I don't think that really fits the setting. Outside of the Gefendur gods, who may or may not be alive depending on whether Ssaelism is true or not, there aren't really any 'divine' creatures. There's senet beasts, like the walking tree from the first chapter or Uaid's baby ogre body, but they aren't really divine in that sense. They were the first creatures the Gods created, so they made them immortal and unchanging. They also don't reproduce. But there's not, like, any particular penalty for mistreating them - and indeed, their bodies are the source of the First Materials that make pymarics work, so many varieties of them have been hunted to extinction.
I'm not sure I myself have a coherent theory as to Sette's nature and origins (besides the possibility that she might have been artificially constructed in Mikaila's image as a control mechanism for Duane) but there definitely seems to be some connection between her and the inner workings of the khert. Not only can she get inside of it which is unusual, she seems to be able to manipulate memory by hand, like when she tore open Murkoph's prison or poked through to that memory of a ritual sacrifice. In the case of Murkoph's prison, she tries using her knife, but it can't affect the memory walls. Only her bare hands have any luck.
Then there's her relationship with pymarics. She seems to have an unusual affinity for ghosts and intelligent constructs: her pet gossamer spider Boo is the prime example, but there was also that time she made Swarm drop Duane during the big pymary rumble - Quigley said, after he took the scarf back, "What's wrong with you, Swarm? Since when do you listen to other people?", implying that normally, even if someone were to take the scarf from him, the beast it projects would not listen to anyone but him. Given that intelligent pymarics are programmed by blending different memories together until they form a rudimentary personality, that suggests that she has some sort of special power over memory, likely related to the memory-gathering functions of the Khert.
And finally, there's that thing Madame Tittybird kept yelling at her over and over: Malakhomit. Duane tells her it means "run away", but if you look in the Tainish language primer included in the second volume, "it" is not a valid ending for a verb conjugation - not one listed, anyway. That suggests that it might be a noun instead: "runaway", not "run away".
I don't know what it all means, but it's some interesting food for thought.
>>233335 I'm not sure if it is spoilery, but if one looks into Ashley's older work in the deepest reaches of the site, one can find some very interesting things regarding Sette, Duane, Bastion, and Murkoph in particular. Perhaps the most interesting part in regards to Sette is the information posted underneath this image.
Sette and her brother, a blue-eyed lion named Jacaranda. They're searching for a fabled white lion reputed to grant wishes to the worthy."
Make of this what you will. Going off of how much Ashley seems to occasionally use/make reference to her old material in the creation of the Unsounded universe, I think there's some worth in considering this. Also, Sette totally referred to her tail as a lion's tale.
>>233420 That said, Sette *did* refer to her tail as a lion's tail in the comic itself early on. Whether that was self-aggrandizement or foreshadowing (or even a sly reference to the earlier incarnation of her) is up for debate, but it's canon that Sette at least publicly thinks of it that way.
>>233994 Some are suggesting that is from when Zimmy Sprint Punched him. I do adore the utter contempt people have for him. Just waiting for the other shoe to drop and it to come out that he had best interest at heart.
>>234405 >Court gives her an important job >Finds out she's a cheat and a slacker and not really the best face for the job. >Forest doesn't care >Fire Elemental Lineage:Volatile if provoked. >Time to call in the big guns back from space to get her on the right track.
Everyone shitting on her pops being very cold and strict. But she's become quite the truant slacker over the years. She needs a bit of a nudge I think.
I don't think anyone's shitting on him for being cold and strict. Everything he had to say in this particular page is justified and correct. But before that, he repeatedly singled her out in front of the class for unexplained and arbitrary punishment, and this after just showing up out of nowhere after bailing on her for YEARS. That part wasn't just cold and strict, that was incredibly unprofessional of him as a teacher and unbelievably shitty of him as a father.
>>234410 >>234412 Also, while perhaps her father's behavior would be justified if he were actually part of her life up till now, a father suddenly appearing after years without seeing his daughter and launching immediately into stern taskmaster mode instead of starting out like "Hey pumpkin, I've missed you so much! But this shit you've been doing, it's not gonna fly." still makes him an asshole.
>>234482 DeviantArt being extremely arbitrary with the banhammer is something that's been going on for over a decade. It sucks, but this is literally nothing new. Conversely, there are also a lot of artists on that site who post a lot of explicit porn on that site and are left untouched to this date.
>>234591 I kinda want him not to. I want someone to offer her an out and it fail in the face of his fatherly logic. Also any place is better than a Sitcom Apartment. And I don't think Kat heard that last bit.
>>234604 >Also any place is better than a Sitcom Apartment.
This is provably false. People in a Real Life New York Apartment would murder to get the Friends Apartment. That place is HUGE. Big enough for TWO COUCHES. That aren't ALSO BEDS. Because there are actual beds, in actual bedrooms! That are not the exact size of a bed!
>>234610 I mean setting wise. Because its so obviously the Friends Apartment down to the same color its just cringeworthy in its normalcy compared to Underwater Rooms guarded by a Kraken. Course that might just be the joke and Annie's singles apartment will look like Jerry Seinfeld's place.
>>234648 Permission to do what? He couldn't have snuck into a class without anyone knowing, so he's almost definitely a real teacher this term. As for forbidding Annie from visiting the Forest and taking ownership of Renard away from her, the Headmaster seemed in-favor of both of those courses of action back when Smith was made Court Medium.
>>234695 >Goal is $3800/mo >Been active for about two days >Already at $3500 That's... that's pretty neat. Hopefully by the end of next week it will hit $4000 and we can get weekly Lackadasiy. She should really open a $100 tier that is just the $50 tier for late-comers; I bet that would sell out with 10 slots as well.
http://www.awkwardzombie.com/index.php?comic=041315 >Another thing I did for the first time this weekend is get engaged! To my boyfriend, who's now my fiance! His name is Norrin and he's my best friend and probably the greatest person I know, and I wanna marry that dude! This has nothing to do with Awkward Zombie and probably won't affect it in any way, I'm just telling you because I THINK IT'S PRETTY NEAT Our little girl is all grown up. ;_;
So after seeing some people on /co/ say that Kid Radd did the whole "every page is a gif." thing way before Homestuck did I decided to check it out.
I just finished binge reading it, and for a sprite comic from the early 00's it was way better than it had any right to be. Even ended with a flash video, so it was probably the first webcomic to do that too. Huh.
Ashley said the Senet beasts are kinda awkward looking because they're direct creations, the gods went with evolution to streamline stuff for their second try. Senet beasts even have their own reality field to keep them together
Also deleted scene was gonna show Duane offering her his cloak to cover up her titties
>>234916 Okay Annie is going to leave, what is Kat going to do to make her stay? But really if this ends up being mind controlling whatnot and all he does is cackle and flee into the night like a comic villain and everything returns to normal. Boo I say.
>>235670 First place a homophobic fuck. Second place a homophobic country.
Which makes all that "lolol I guess tolerance won this time" shit from last year a huge farce. Which is hilarious, because noone will talk about that bearded thing ever again.
I'm kinda sad next ESC won't be in Russia, where half of the audience isn't allowed to participate because you know... half of the audience is gay. That would be SO funny, like man, what a fuckup to all that "loving and tolerance" bs. Everyone should just admit that people are egoistical, easy to manipulate shits.
>>235777 Kat is blamed and the rift opens back up between Annie and Kat. Focus really should be more on "why is he doing this" than "I got to find out his plan to stop him". Her ignoring Annie's pleas will come back to bite her, I know it.
>>237101 Considering the entire shift into a more complex storyline, throwing away a lot of the comedy from before, a more expanded and pretty attractive universe and all this melodramatic developments, I think it's the latter. Also, that really felt like a Shyamalan tier twist.
>>240349 The former wasn't just hinted at, but seen a few hundred pages ago. Although I suppose you could be forgiven for thinking that was just some sort of anime-style barbie doll anatomy censorship rather than a genuine plot point.
I think anon means "no sexual organs" implied "no vagina," not simply a lack of nipples or some other secondary sexual characteristic. No navel means no umbilical cord which means she wasn't born in the traditional sense, too.
>>240511 Not until Robot tears Paz in half, because "it was worth it." Also awww Lab Assistant Paz with slightly different haircut. Will she get to say anything or just be around to remind the reader that Kat and her are still a thing.
>>241039 >Its Patreon in a nutshell. Why do 4chan douches get so angry when they see creative types making money off their art, anyway? Patreon, Kickstarter, commissions, whatever, nothing makes 4chan more angry than seeing someone get paid to make things.
>>241042 some bitch that it "cheapens" the artist others because it shows they are popular and it makes them angry because its no longer in a niche. Others because they are making so much sometimes. And then there are those that will shit just to watch the world burn and what to see anyone suffer.
>>241042 Certain imageboard denizens had it drilled into their heads that if you ask for any amount of attention (even if you deserve it), you are automatically an attention whore (the worst type of person to them).
They think everything must be done for free, and you must never tell anyone that you done it (remain anonymouse till you die). If you make something, and then tell everyone that you made it, and ask for any form of compensation, you are a greedy capitalist sellout attention whore. Stay anonymous, do everything for free, or we will h8 you.
Don't know if it's alright to just post webcomics you like, but I've been enjoying this one: It Hurts!, first page on http://gobolatula.com/ithurts/?comic=chapter-1-pasqualo-falls-in-love, since the homepagecan spoil it. Was storytimed on /co/, too. boards.4chan.org/co/thread/79341864/it-hurts-storytime boards.4chan.org/co/thread/79355971/it-hurts-storytime-part-2
>>241507 Eh. It wasn't a straight line from Civil to Shit. I remember the threads about the Raine Dog or however it was called was a bunch of jokes regarding the author's gender. It didn't help that the comic itself was unhealthily fixated on the romantic relationship between the dog and its owner...
It oddly enough got back to "okay, we should cool it with the pisstakes" once the author moved on to a more general audience comic about a girl and her unicorn. I'd say maybe it comes in waves. Though that'd be optimistic of me.
