Webcomic description

When Taran returns from his wanderings with the hope of being worthy of Eilonwy's hand, neither of them are expecting the day of their reunion to be the day the country is thrown once more into war. While the wounded Prince Gwydion is tended inside the cottage, these long-separated friends with feelings that are...complicated, find their own way to reconnect.

Fancomic adaptation of my fanfic of the same name, set during The High King, fifth book in The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander

I am sorry I didn't see this comment for so long...but congratulations! You have experienced one of life's finer things. :)

Personally I don't much care for the TV series...especially after the first 4 when they switched to a different Hugh. The books are all so much better IMO. Definitely my favorite stories of all time.

I gotta say that I love how Eilonwy's reaction in panels 3 and 4 are very similar to how you drew Taran's reaction when he sees her face for the first time in Spiral Castle. Perhaps they weren't thinking the same things but that's the difference between being kids and being adults XD

Yeah, ComicFury and Wordpress really like messing with my posts sometimes. Here, trying to using the arrow keys results in the page jumping around and sometimes pushing me back a page (has happened a couple of times, which is one reason I commented on the wrong page for Book of Three a couple pages back), but I've also had it happen on another comic that, so far as I know, isn't hosted by them, so I don't know what it is, but I'm guess it's something to do with Windows 10, Google Chrome, or possible some other combination. Whatever it is, I can't reliably reproduce the error so I have no idea how to avoid it.

I think your keyboard jammed, brother, can you try this one again?

This is beautiful, as always. I think Peter Wulfdane expressed my feelings better than I could have myself, which is unnerving, but not unwelcome, so just reread his comments and you'll be spared my overly effusive drivel. ;)

At the risk of being being very awkward, this is the sort of romance I grew up wanting and never found, even to the present. I grew up with sterling examples of women characters like Maureen O'Hara's Mary Kate Danaher (The Quiet Man), and Eilwony is the sort of gal, like her, that keeps a man interested. Sure, her temper might flare and her tongue might be sharp at times, but she's worth the frustration, anger or hurt that she might unintentionally cause.

Too bad I didn't grow up as an Assistant Pig Keeper in Prydain.
