    Flimm: “Yes! Betrayal! One step closer to the goal…”
    Slynderfell: “Yeah, yeah, you win the bet and it’s free ice cream for life. Just remember, I win and you have to marry Oggalulu.”

    Hard choices.

    He must already be brainwashed… “she looks after herself”? when they have been following her blood trail?

    Justification. Not necessarily associated to truth.
    He’ll come busting into the pipe when Twila shows her true colors.

    Tension, apprehension, and dissension have begun. (Mr. Bester would be proud.) What will it take to restore the Alliance? Or has Flimm won again?

    Are those the eyes of a boy in the throes of shame or the thrall of Flimm?

    Can’t help noticing we can’t see Twila’s face any more.

    TSOJ: You made me laugh! : D “Flimm and Ogga, sitting in a tree, K – I – S – S – I – N – G…”

    paha_siga: They’re not ‘sure’ the blood trail is Goatsucker’s. They are only ‘deeply suspicious:’

    jmcx4: Agreed. Rufus cares for GS. He’s just overwhelmed with the emotions of finding ‘Twila’ right now.

    Sisyphos: : ) Fabulous storytelling for sure! Kory’s spinning a beauty!

    J2P2: “…we can’t see Twila’s face…” Uh, huh; yup, saw that subtle clue, too.

    So much pathos in so very few sentences (and artwork). Incredible, as always, storytelling and artwork.

    Wouldn’t it be a better idea to drop her off at the mushpitt’s or the professor’s? Flimm is still after our dear rufus and biff, which means that it’d be more dangerous for “Twila” to be with her brother than not

    Oooooooor did Rufus pick up on Twila saying that she was not worthy and realize that sounds out of character so perhaps she is being controlled? He may actually be doing something extremely brave by tackling that front of the battle by himself. If he realizes this then he can not say anything without tipping off Flimm. I wonder if he will try a version of the cafe game which calmed Twila in the past to see what the response is?

    On a separate topic: many thanks for making several of the fonts easier to read. With worsening vision that has kept this pleasure still available for me.

    …i think waycyber nailed it – hard choices…

    Rufe, Flimm says if I bring you to him, then I will be worthy

    Some have wondered whether Twila (assuming it is she and not Verminosh or some other imposter) was speaking of her own volition or being controlled by Flimm. Maybe it’s fair to ask if the same is now happening to Rufus; I’m sure it won’t be long before we find out. But right now, it’s the sheer uncertainty of the situation that makes this scene so unsettling. And no, we have not seen Twila’s face ever since she emerged from the drainpipe. It’s frightening to think of what might appear when she shows it again. Probably not a completely different face, though; a marked change in expression would tell us all we need to know. And it wouldn’t surprise me if it turns out to be something like the nasty, malicious smile (worse than any frown) that appeared back when she and Michaela Bachman mocked Rufus, but infinitely more sinister.

    I see the rumors of Flimm and Oggalulu being (or having been) an item still persist. Even considering all the sharp, sudden turns in this story, that’s one I take a dim view of. But who knows? I’ve long since made it a rule never to assume that certain things will happen. Or that they won’t.
