Omg. If I thought last weeks comic was funny, this one is the FUNNIEST!!!!!!!! :D :D :D ROFL! I just can't get over Selina's faces in the first two panels.....SO FUNNY!!!! And ah-hum, Selina.....you've got an extremely bad case of sunburn!! (or embarrassed/love burn!!!!!) :D :D :D

@Elizabeth Weadick: Ha ha! I'm glad you like it! And yes, a "love burn" might be more accurate. ;-)

@Livin4thelamb: I LOVE it!!!! :D yep, I was thinking a "love burn" was WAY more accurate!!! LOL!!! :D :D

I really like how you emphasized Selina's fangs and pointed ears in the third panel. It reminds readers that, despite how we've come to see her, she's not human. Can I also say Silas is really rocking the casual-royal style. I love the sideways crown!

@Becky Farb: Thank you! Yes, not entirely human, anyway. This is somewhat obvious, but Selina is half human, and half Underworlder.
Vellian is too, since Selina is her clone (duh) and since the female Underworlders are a little taller and have apricot colored skin, (not green like the males) it wasn't too ridiculous for the Underworlders to believe Vellian when she lied saying that she was 100% Underworlder.
Vellian grew up secluded above ground with a human father named John Machia and an Underworlder mother named Vhri Vellian. Once both of her parents died, Vellian moved back underground and assumed both of her parents' names and began ruling the Underworld.
Vellian would NEVER admit to being part human. She even alters her appearance to look more like the Underworlders (paints and files her nails, slicks her hair back, etc). But Selina guessed Vellian wasn't completely telling the truth about their heritage, because one day she went above ground and got to see what humans looked like from a distance. She noticed that she and her mother look a lot more like humans than Underworlders.
Whoa - sorry for the wall-of-text exposition. But to answer your observation, YES, Selina is not completely human. Just half.

@Becky Farb: Oh, and in regard to the casual-royal style, Thanks! Silas's motto would probably be "Stay Chill and Carry On" ;-)

What Selina thinks is going on:

What's actually going on:

At least, that's what went through my head, haha : )

@MJ Neal: YES! It's so true. But hopefully Silas will be a little less angsty than Robin was. :D

@Livin4thelamb: I think that's a given! I have a tough time envisioning Silas doing much brooding : )

I just noticed something that I can't believe I overlooked. In the last panel, Selina has this RED RED blush, and is looking so embarrassed, and there is Silas, looking off into the distance, not knowing that a thing is wrong! It's SOOOO funny!!!! :D :D
Livin4thelamb February 9th, 2017, 4:43 pm
@Elizabeth Weadick: Yup! Selina is embarrassed, but pleased. And Silas is completely unaware that he just made her day. :D

Haha, love this! Looks like Silas is a quality guy... ;)

But I notice he mentions her ears, not her teeth (I didn't even notice their prominence until reading Becky's comment). Vulcans and elves have pointy ears; that's cool. But vampires have pointy teeth...not so cool. Maybe they'll be harder for people to get over. And are they awkward when kissing?? (File under things Silas might need to worry about in the future...)

@Alex M: Oh my gosh, I'm dying. Ha ha! XD Would you believe I hadn't thought about that until now? Who knew kissing could be so dangerous?
And thanks for noticing, Silas is a pretty legit dude. Oh, and so he complimented her ears because she specifically tried to hide them with her hair. He didn't want her to feel self-conscious. But yes, I agree, the pointed teeth would be scarier. Luckily, Selina's canines teeth aren't THAT sharp, so...hopefully it won't be a problem, ha ha ha.
