Comic 38 - And there we have it, a god who plans for the long-term future!

And there we have it, a god who plans for the long-term future!
Aléas: How long is a while?
Wakatonka: Oh... a few years. We don't need them just to show the ladies a good time, you know? There will be babies to take care of. If your questions are important enough, they'll be worth it. And something tells me that they are. Of course, you can still back out. At this point, you don't owe me anything.
Aléas. All right, we'll do it.

Well, I'm a little impressed; ole Wakatonka cares about giving kids a full family experience, with a mom and a dad.

The prospect of seeing his village's bloodline continue seems to be an exciting one to him... *cough*

Hmmm. Since he asked for men... Is the majority of Wakatonka's people perhaps female? Is that why they're so fond of him?

... Or was that just because men have an easier time with conceiving multiple offspring in a short span of time?

About 150 years. Longer than a human being, but not absurdly so.

That also brings up the question, do faeries experience the passage of time in a manner similar/identical to humans?

Pretty much. You won't find "What's a hundred years to an elf" in this comic. The lifespans are all pretty proportionate. Goblins live a little shorter than humans, but mostly because of their violent lifestyle and poor hygiene. Gnomes live a little longer but show what to a human would look like signs of age earlier.

Gods, on the other hand, do live very long, but this is a result of the apotheosis process, and not a genetic feature.

Aléas is assuming a lot of authority here, isn't she? Is she Thrashbarg (sp?)'s designated successor, perhaps?

And am I wrong in assuming that at least some of Emea's faeries were based on the Smurfs? :p

Well read on...

Oh, dear. All the buildings in Wakatonka's village are boner-shaped, aren't they? o_o;

Yep. the architecture is phallic, the jewelry is phallic and the millinery is phallic.

(Hopefully, this will get this comic a googlewhack for "Phallic millinery".)
