    Oh yes, everything’s going swimmingly.

      Damn it, it cut out the most important part of that link
      Oh Crap.

      • Ahh it still works if you click on it! Succinct and true.

  • Yeah, this isn’t going to end well. One hopes they can bargain with Pride to unsummon it. Well, or shoot it.

    I kinda hope we get to find out why letting all the Deadlies loose near the Anchors is a bad thing.

    • SleepingDragon

      They definitely won’t unsummon it since the deadlies are being set loose one after another. Also I’m sure we’ll learn eventually, though I find it unlikely it’ll be in this specific story. We get bits and pieces of the bigger picture with every episode and I think all the info about the Anchor was our share for this one.

  • Nomen

    Wait, so she used her magical abilities to show that she didn’t need/was better than her magical abilities?

    Also, what does it mean when her mask glows purple instead of green?

    • Ragashingo

      It does seem pretty hypocritical doesn’t it!

    • KickFailure

      Sometimes you’ve got to fight fire with fire.

    • SoItBegins

      It means, run away.

    • She’s a member of Team Plasma. “Making Pokemon fight is evil! We will steal your Pokemon by fighting you with Pokemon.”

  • ShadeTail

    Pride, huh? OK, that works too, I guess. It sure seemed to me that a lot of Envy was going on, though.

    • Yeah, there’s a fair amount of overlap between the two. I’ve tried to make it “me me me” rather than “give me what you have” though.

      • ShadeTail

        True enough.

        • Taijutsu

          Well, Pride IS the great sin. You can pretty much interpret any other sin as an outgrowth of pride :)

          • SoItBegins

            What about Lust?

            • Me-me

              Pride in one’s physical attractiveness.

              • Wyvern

                That’s vanity, not lust. I’d say that selfishness is the root of all (or at least most) sins, and both pride and lust are offshoots of it. Pride is thinking yourself better than others, and lust is desiring another person without regard for that person’s feelings.

            • svartalf

              Hm… That’s going to be an interesting deadly, I think…

              As for the other, I don’t know whether it counts as an outgrowth- but Pride’s one of the first “original” Sins… Most of the others ARE outgrowths thereof.

  • taijutsu

    Woo! Totally called it!

  • AsimvSideburns

    “Oh, this is going to suck

  • KickFailure

    “My Prrrrrrrrrrrrrride!”

  • I was wrong. I thought it was Envy…

  • Since we’re coming to the end of this adventure, will next one feature Mal and wossname?

    • Mal and Wolfe will be back, but not in this next story.

  • =Tamar

    I think it’s going to be a good thing that Sidney is essentially humble.

  • jeffepp

    Aaaand, as we all know, Pride goeth before…

    • SoItBegins

      before the autumn, right?

  • This is why if you have magical aptitude, you need proper magical training.
    Lei clearly thought this was going to work and doesn’t seem to have had any idea what a horribly bad idea it was to use such a strong emotion as Pride, which she would have known if she’d had any training. Sid may have told her at some point before, but I guess she wasn’t paying attention . . .

    • Sid is also horrendously scatterbrained, and is probably the worst possible teacher for anything at all.

      • Me-me

        “What a lovely looking gun! I can see right down the barrel!”

      • That, and the “lesson” showed when he was talking about Lei looked rather more like a date . . . so I doubt either of them remembers what they talked about.

  • Alex

    “My strongest emotion, of course! PRIDE!”
    Oooooooh shit.
    Oh shit.
    Oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit oh shit.
    Katie, you are brilliant and I love you, but DAMN you are mean.
    I can’t wait for the next page.

    • FlashXX

      *clapping enthusiastically* Well said!

  • I wonder what the Lust story will be like?

    • AsimvSideburns

      Extremely awkward.

      Especially for Sid.

    • SoItBegins

      Incredibly awesome for readers of both genders. :D

    • Gotta admit, I’m nervous about that one! I have the bones of a story in mind for it, but these things change so much from initial idea to final product..

  • Me-me

    “..Why? That’s-”
    One of the deadlies? Yes we know.

    “[…]goeth before[…]”

  • Odo

    The problem is that both Vee and Harry are full of pride in their work. There is about to be a summoning by two totally untrained marginally magical prideful humans. Nothing good can come of this.

  • SoItBegins

    Well, crap.

  • Sgt. Howard

    First time commenting- Pride, greed and sloth, eh? Are you sure this is Widdershins and not Washington DC? Hmm… you need only add lust and you have it covered rather well… poor Sidney, the boy needs an infusion of spine and … other anatomy… and he would do well. And Verity… girl, you need to go decaf. Lei… wow… an advanced high-school Sophomore mentality as a criminal mastermind. Wile E. Coyote in bloomers. THIS will be interesting… or gruesome… remember that there’s an anvil following you after you fall off that cliff… and of course, Harriet- I think she and I could understand each other… and I will leave it at that…

    Se7en: The Victorian Saga

  • Wyvern

    Aaargh! Stuck on a cliffhanger, and no new page! I can’t stand it!

  • Love the way that the pride of all three ladies is summoning the deadly. Talk about cats in sack. Time for Sid’s humility to save the day.
