    Wouldn’t have mattered how Kirbee wrapped the rope. If she grabs the end to keep it from ripping loose, she’s either going to strangle or choke herself to death. If it had been around her waist, the weight would pull her straight down the shaft.

    The Triangle Is Complete!

    No, not the circle. The Triangle. The fire triangle. Oxygen, fuel and sufficient heat for the fuel to reach its ignition point. Too bad they don’t have the means to remove any one of the three.

    I’m still going with Kirbee’s panic allowing her to save the day (and our heroes).

    I can tell Kirbee is falling and is Holly falling too?
    It must be getting quite hot.
    If they fall back down, aren’t they going to die?
    I’ll have to wait till other good people that know more about the technics of fire!

    Is it happening? It feels like it’s happening.

    I think Firbee lost the rope. And that is why she fell backwards and hit her head.


    But who, or what, is keeping tension on the rope? Could the dittos have mutated into a more tangible entity?


    Well, we didn’t get answers today, maybe later.

    I’m thinking all three of them wind up wedged halfway up / down the shaft.

    “Fire! I’ll take you to burn! Fire! I’ll take you to learn!”

    Likewise, the panic… I think the rope is still attached and she will brace against the sides of the shaft with her feet and back and start making her way up that way…

    “Is it getting warm in here, or is it just me?”

    They are not falling, but they are hanging out in the chimney and there’s a monster of a fire in the fireplace. ;-)

    Um Kirbee is not falling. She has mad a perfect triangle to.
    Back pressed against one wall and her feet against the other.
    .
    The rope still seems to be around her neck.
    So Holly and Chick are not falling.
    .
    Now would be a great time for Jim to lend a hand.
    But he can’t lift a finger.

    Everybody needs to get the heck out of there. The question is whether Kirbee is able to get through the hole without compromising her ability to handle the load or whether Holly and Chic can climb up and then up the rope, through the hole and pull Kirbee in.

    I just had a horrible thought. What if a heroic sacrifice is part of the plot? Hope not, I like this ditzy Reptilian.

    Ok. Look closely at panel 4. That hexagonal shape is the hole that Kirbee was looking through in Monday’s strip. Her feet are braced against the wall right below the hole, and her back is smashed against the opposite wall. The rope is hanging down behind her back and she can’t move because of the combination of down-rushing air, and the weight of Holly and Chick pulling down on her shoulders.

    Kirbee isn’t falling, but she is trapped. She can’t shift her weight to go head first through the hole, and she’s positioned wrong for trying to shimmy either up OR down as long as Holly keeps holding on to the rope. At the moment, she has two options. Cook. Or lose her grip on the wall, slip and fall into the flames.

    @Three Steps Over Japan

    In the position you described, but straining to get her hand to the edge of the hole. If she “squats” too far her back will leave the wall and she’ll fall. If she can grip the hole, maybe she can pull through.

    You all do realize that a heat explosion pushes outward and upward, right?

    A split second in free fall before the shock wave pops them out the top into the waiting stumps of?
