This is episode 120 of The Middle Age. You can read the story from the beginning here.
And 120 episodes in, we meet Quimp’s love! I almost sidetracked us with yet another subplot but I figured you all have suffered enough. 🙂
This week’s episode was delayed by a last-minute rewrite, and that rewrite was delayed by a last-minute veterinary visit for my editor/cat. My cat/editor, The Lady Sir Doris Persimmons Buttcake, is medicated, and doing much much better but I was unable to get a lot of revisions done while sitting in the vet’s office. I realllly need to rebuild my episode buffer – and I really need to quit being so fickle.
Somewhere in the chaos of putting this episode together, I decided Phosphene shouldn’t only breathe fire. To that end, I found myself drawing Sir Quimp’s and Empress Vesica’s skeletons – something I hadn’t expected. I reserve the right go back and draw Maledicta’s skeleton as well – once I consult with the Department of Cosmological Chicanery and Metaphysical What-Have-You to figure out what that might look like.
