    He is smiling in the first panel of 0056 immediately prior to committing thievery. Not sure if it counts though.

    If it does:

    Find Elan wearing a hat. (His wig & bandanna costume from 388 is not a hat).

    Roy imagines him in a dunce cap in #14.

    Find Nale smiling (and not speaking), with no expressive brow marks, while performing a theft.

    Not Elan, Elanicalicus, a name more befitting a mighty wizard like him. He's wearing a wizard's hat.

    Thievery IS one way to put that

    If that is correct, then find Vaarsuvius without their cape on.

    As a lizard (without robe): 0177

    If Larre Gannd was correct:
    Find a blue quill.

    That is #665, nonth panel, right after Roy's resurrection. Vaarsuvius is still paralyzed and drained, and somebody removes her cape to temporarily cover up Roy. We can only see half of a head and one arm of Vaarsuvius though. Vaarsuvius gets her cape back before her next appearance in #667.

    Hmm. I thought it was the feather in Belkar's hat, but nope, that's not blue.

    Update: heck, even the quill provided to Vaarsuvius in the library of Shojo's personal wizard is not blue. It's strange to see a red quill in Azure City.

    This phrasing also breaks the rules, because it would require demonstrating where the demon roaches first appear, which requires every strip before they appeared to prove they weren't in them.

    How about "find a strip that has MitD but has neither the demon roaches nor a flashlight"?

    Hm? No, you'd only need two strips- one with the page with MITD, and one where the demon roaches appeared, which took place earlier. You don't need to find their FIRST appearance, because if you can find ANY earlier appearance that means it takes place after they first appeared.

    Although I think by the point you need to add a condition like that to your question, you might as well scrap it and find another.

    I'm finding a lot of white quills, and a red one, but no blue ones.

    Almost time for a hint, but this was such an easy one I'm reticent to do so - is anyone actually trying to figure this out? I'll give a hint if anyone says they need it.

    It sounds familiar, but I can't remember where it's from- not even enough to narrow it down to a chapter or so. So I'd need a hint. Can't speak for anyone else, but if no one's responded for this long I think it's probably because they can't remember either.

    Except that doesn't answer how the question (Just how sexy is Belkar?) was worded. Answering with the "As stubborn as he is stone cold sexy" using "Stone cold" to measure how sexy he is, even though "Stone cold" is part of the adjective. Easily fixed by changing the question to "How can you describe Belkar's sexiness" or just inferring "very" from the previous panel where his illusion is refusing to eat to answer.

    It's not a bad thing to have questions guessed quickly. Difficult questions aren't necessarily better.

    There are also ways to narrow it down without making it too obvious- you can indicate what chapter it's in, mention who it is that says something, point out something that happens on the same page, etc.

    Gah! I've flicked through every page until Elan became a Dashing Swordsman, as well as every occasion I could remember where Elan sung afterwards, and I still can't find it! Did I flick past it by accident?

    The closest I've found is this which has 11 notes, and this which has 10 but none of them are Elan's.

    Comics I tried after Elan became a Dashing Swordsman include Elan singing while having his blood sucked, rub, rub, rub my father's face in my uselessness and Therkla's death.

    The most notes in one comic seems to be on #41 with 14.

    That'll rule out some possibilities for whoever tries after me.
