    Whoa, temporal whiplash!

    Hopefully Annie doesn't feel like an insect compared to Jones, now...

    Now we just need to launch Jones into space to see what happens.

    Mystery solved!

    This is the real killer. Everything Jones just told Annie contradicts Coyote's theory of human thought being the source of the supernatural. Apparently Annie was told something about Jones from Yes, but she didn't realize the extent of it until just now.

    I think the time travel theory is highly unlikely. My theory is that Jones is an inversion of Coyote's theory, a supernatural being whose thoughts indirectly caused life to come into existence and humanity to be created (explaining how she can appear human and act passably human, but predate humanity).

    "...I worry that modern gaming is gradually shrinking the wide spectrum of gameplay mechanics into a single narrow red bar with "KILL" written on it sideways. Exploration, navigation, puzzles, platforming, all gradually shrinking away until only one thing remains, being taken by the hand from room to room, moving on only when nothing remains alive in each one." - Yhatzee Crosshaw

    Jones has been pantomiming her backstory throughout this entire flashback. She just got to the part where she strips naked.

    Also, this comic is hilarious. I mean the drawing is great, but Tom totally blindsided me with a punchline in the comments.

    I didn't even realize all the wikipedia linking would form into a punchline.
    I cackled like a maniac when I saw that last link. Well played, Tom, well played.

    Annie's face and that wiki link made this whole chapter worth it. I laughed so hard people stared. Well played, Tom!

    Also, is this actually going to answer any questions, or is that it?

    More specifically, she's naked from the waist up and is pantomining how she wrestled a buffalo.

    If she is as dense as shown, certain forms of physical intimacy (if they are even possible) sound bruising and painful.

    More and more, I get the feeling that Jones has no idea who Jones is. That the fact that a species that just happened to look like her appeared after billions of years is a mystery to her too.

    You say this as if that kind of thing ever stopped humans from getting it on with mythological entities.

    I mean, someone in Annie's family tree got it on with a living bonfire. Compared to that, some crushing seems minor.

    Which princess does that make Jones?

    (/* has only a tangental knowledge of the other series)
    • Sometimes, the knights are the monsters
    • The main problem with the world? So many grownups, not enough adults.
    • Pain is nature's way of saying you're not dead and the other guy is.
    • Current Project: Sky High, the superheroic High School campaign. The school's name isn't the only thing I borrowed...

    More likely she's not a Princess and is more like Billy.

    We honestly don't know enough about what an elemental is in this universe to really say for sure. We do know that Jones is dense and incredibly resilient.

    You get this sense of incredulity from Annie's expressions in this particular comic that is particularly interesting, especially since she is usually not the skeptical one.

    Well! That was more than I was expecting. I was all but certain we wouldn't find out exactly why or how Jones is so old (either Annie wouldn't be told, or we'd skip past it). That Jones doesn't know either is intriguing.

    I can't help but be reminded of this exchange from the Fellowship of the Ring:
    Frodo: "Tell me, lady, who is Tom Bombadil?"

    Goldberry: "He is."
