Must not judge yet…*judge judge*
oh, blue Claire… sad songs and waltzes aren’t sellin’ this year… but we’re bound to listen, I wonder if Mason will lend an ear here too?
somebody sound the bitch alarm
Don’t be so quick to judge her mom. We know almost nothing about her. Maybe she has a stressful job. Or she has a medical/psychological condition. Or MAYBE Claire’s dad is a good dad but a bad husband. When it comes to family matters, nothing is as it seems.
I was just making a educated hypothesis based on available data
I feel just like Claire’s mom when i have a migraine, they suck.
maybe so, but she clearly appears uninterested in the family business or science or her family’s interests
anthro cersei lannister without that one redeeming quality of love for her children….and no incest….but still carrying a glass of wine every other panel.
my latin is rusty
latin? what latin?
oh, never mind then
Idk, If the headache is bad enough you could offer me $1million and i’d probably still tell you to fuck off.
good for you and your self control
which in turn is way too early to say anything,
its never to early
Well that red wine ain’t helping either. Alcohol is the wrong intoxicant for someone who has migraines.
Well you know what they say, hair of the fox that bit me…
what a bitch…..
more likely she married him to peeve someone and found she chose wrong.
I want to make claire happy. Young claire is cute.
Yelling sure doesn’t help with the headache……
Only one comment for her mom..
You bitch! >:[
CODE RED! We have a character’s mood down! I repeat: character mood down! Send moral support ASAP!
crimson tiger this is Gravedigger I am inbound with BIG HUG MISSLES!
Roger that, Garvedigger. HQ is also sending the ULTRA cheer-up package your way. ETA is… now!
you do realize im flying a fighter jet right??
Sending the package to you so you appear as a gentlemen when you give it to her. Who’s the idiot now?
Should I send in the rainbow and fluffy missiles?
Give er fluff, 155! over
*activates rainbow transition and fluff launching*
its a good plan, except I don’t have a suit and top hat
Lucky for you the package comes with a suit. We couldn’t get the top hat, cause of budget cuts. Well, that and the package we sent you cost us a small fortune. As for what the package contains: 1 triple-nutty-choco-fudge ice cream (she’s sad and she needs the good stuff), 2 spoons and bowls (cause misery loves company), best laptop we could find with cross time-space 1GB/s internet, a holographic projector that projects a cheer up musical scene and an autographed picture of Keith Keiser (I personally went through hell and back to get this, so DON’T LOOSE IT!). Now, go and put a smile on that girl’s face!
my dancing is known to cause spontaneous laughter

I’ve got my Rainbow shelled ASG, ready to move in at your command, comander Gravedigger.
don’t look at me, EdgeKnight gives the orders around here
and now we are introduced to the anthro version of Cersei Lannister.
Uh Claire, you need to keep a watch of your surroundings. There might be a reason that particular stretch of stream is unpopulated.
In fact, large rocks alone in the middle of a stream is VERY likely
Im confused? She isn’t by any body of water, it’s just a rock in a dirt patch surrounded by bushes/grass.
I thought that was muddy water (which is NOT a safe place to sit around).
Dang, she would be relatively safer in a dirt-filled clearing than a muddy stream. You are the artist, so I suspect you know and I’ll accept it is a clearing.
Now, I see the spiral she made in dirt. I originally thought it was waves (like a stick in water would make). See how small details can change perception?
I read all the comments, everything I wanted to say has been covered:
-We should all comfort sad Claire – Check
-Excited Dad about his brilliant prodigy daughter – Check
-Mom is alcoholic/not very nice/not supportive – Check
Claire, you should stop ruminating. It can lead to depression. Not to mention, you are stressed out about being in a foreign land with a broken way to get home and you don’t know where the only family you have left is or how they’re doing. Alex’s advice: Go back to the group, grab yourself that big Elk for a few minutes of some much needed de-stressing and get you mind focused back on the task at hand. Or, you know, keep ruminating so we can see more of you backstory.
actually this whole thing adds depth to her character
oh no, Claire had one of those mothers
“Ice Cream Laser Beams”? I like her thinking!
is young Claire wearing braces?
so apparently Claire’s dad is friggin’ awesome….her mother…not so much.
if you photoshop the bitch pretending to be her mother out of the picture it would be a happy memory
I must admit, Claire must’ve been one hell of a top-notcher if she got a university scholarship by that young age.
Course, we know nothing about the futuristic society, so I’ll leave it at that.
Meh, maybe her mom just had a hell of a day or that she completely objects the idea of Claire being totally smart and growing up, with hypothesized neglection.
Or you know, the mother is literally a douchebag.
I chose the former.
Claire is a genius afterall — even if she doesn’t seem to have much common-sense. Her father was quite intelligent too — so yeah she took alot after him.
as for the not being good at social skills aspect of Claire…..I guess her mom passed on those genes.
It wonten be 10 year secen thier in the past…would it?
10 years ago from Claire’s timeline. 10 years ago on Evyr would have been different obviously cuz time-travel.
Daddy’s a fox, but mommy’s a cat?
Claire is most obviously a fox, so it seems daddy’s ‘donation’ is dominant. It also seems so in the ‘brains’ department.
Don’t have to look very deeply to see anything wrong with the situation, do we? In panel four, mommy doesn’t look like someone with a headache. She looks bored. As in “they’re at it again”. I suspect mommy has very little interaction with daughter or daddy.
Her father is a fennec fox, her mother is an arctic fox. So she has lots of fox genes!
an arctic fox, you say? In that case, since the weather outside in the flashback looks like that of the spring and summer months, wouldn’t her fur be brown with tinges of white rather than all white (fun fact: their fur color changes in accordance with the seasons and the hemispheric temperatures during those seasons)? Furthermore, I apologize wholeheartedly if that statement sounded like a nitpick.
I am slightly tempted to do that with some characters. You are right on the whole fur-changing with arctic foxes in warmer weather, but for the sake of making her appear more like her namesake I went with her pure-white coat. It’s possible we may do this with Dante (as she is a mink and would have a white coat in colder regions). It was at least true with Mason whom as a child had white spots like most fawns do but ‘grew out’ of them with age.
ooooooooooooh…..so if it’s winter and we have Date with white fur, dressed in all white…….WOOT!!!! Bijou Cajun Mink Snow Ninja!!!!!…………and for some reason that sounds like the title of a SyFy channel B-Movie.
My wife suffers from Migranes, so I can actually sympathize with Claire’s mom
well this is interesting
Makes me wonder if Proto has ice cream laser beams now.
or what if he’s a Claymore lightsaber?
You mean the Cross-Guard Lightsaber?
What the hell? Claire grew a lot in ten years how old is she?
Check out the cast page. Claire is 11 here and 21 in the current timeline. (though admittedly she looks a bit younger then she should here, the next page she looks a bit older.)
mmmm not sure about this how it look. look at Clair’s mother got nice dress , earring, candles, and wine. it seem she mad about miss their anniversary . i think
wait….Claire’s las name is O’Connell?……..and now I’m for some reason imagining that her dad sounds like Brendan Fraser.
Black hearted wench.
I wonder what Helen and Poppy were like when they discovered Helen was pregnant. Maybe she wasn’t ready, and he was all too eager. Ooh I want to know more about them!
10 years ago?
More like several years in the future!
Hmm I get the feeling Claire’s mom did a fair amount of drinking.
Hmm… she’s sure dressed fancy for someone with a migraine, i don’t recall wine making it feel any better. i believe my out look on this is the father and mother don’t have a good relationship i believe she has a hang over not a migraine and the nice looking outfit and fancy earring… I dunno about you all but if i had a migraine i wouldn’t be dressed up as if im going out for a date, i’d keep my ass in my room sleeping it off, or watching tv, resting waiting for the asprin to kick in
You got a headache and you think that the best way to deal with it is to drink wine?
Get a glass of water, a pill for headache and get a nap.
