Saeriellyn has been drawing longer than most people on this site have been alive, but only delved into comics a few years ago. She loves children's literature, celtic fantasy, Wales, and Assistant Pig-Keepers. She will wax verbose with anyone who interacts with her regarding all these topics, and her related work especially.

She's happily married to a fellow fantasy nerd and costume designer, and homeschools three kids, which means in her spare time she likes to go to the bathroom alone.

She enjoys singing, art, pretending she can dance, sarcasm, 80s nostalgia, Jim Henson, mountains, castles, and costumes. She does not like politicians, internet trolls, and when people clear-cut woods to build ugly housing developments.

It's not completely cut. I'm just doing some trimming for time/space, and some of that is the part they hoist her onto Melyngar. But she's still the first to tire, grow almost ill from exhaustion, etc. And honestly, I haven't even done the page yet. It could change. I'm just concerned about the pacing a little bit.

Beautiful page! I'm glad of the update, though I understand your stress.

I like to think Taran was just some random villager's kid. Maybe his father was one of one of the local cantrev lord's men. A foot soldier, a grunt, but a good man and proud of the work he did, and his wife was proud of him. But then they both died in the slaughter Dallben describes in The High King. Sad, but hardly a great, extraordinary tragedy, at least not in poor, war-torn Prydain. Alexander's whole point is that nobility is grown with a person's character, not present in them with a gentle birth. Most of his worst characters are nobility or high-ranking servants.

A bit sad Eilonwy's weakness is getting cut. I don't think it is a concession to convention. At this point in the story, Eilonwy trying to do more than she can feasibly do is as much a part of her character as rushing into a thorn bush is part of Taran's. She's brave and smart and capable--but she's so desperate to prove herself as such that she overreaches. As you point out, she's lived in a castle, while Fflewddur is a warrior of some renown and Taran is used to strenuous physical labor. It also gives Taran (and Fflewddur) lovely opportunities to be nice to her. While sexism is irritating, chivalry is not.

I used to scratch him up in every panel but I start to forget those details until we get a close-up. Nice to have the chance to throw it back in.
