Aw! She’s so adorable! I love the mood of all of the pages like this!
Is that Yuen..?
Yes it is
I’m… so very confused. XD Poor Meela in the white shirt doesn’t look so good though. :(
Meela had another brother? :O
If you go through the gallery, Tanner had a twin named Conner, whom I am assuming was killed in this attack on their family.
Hmm… A suspicion of mine from many pages ago is confirmed… I think ;)
We’ve always wondered who Yuen is/was; and it’s been pointed out that he looked remarkably like Meela. Now the last panel of this page has Meela referring to “him again”, though he has her new hairstyle.
This is my suspicion: that whoever Yuen is/was, we don’t actually know what he looks like, because Meela’s placing herself as him. I’ve been wondering ever since her hair was cut if Yuen would appear as he used to, or if he would share her new hairstyle.
I know she doesn’t name him here, but about who else would she say “Why do I keep dreaming about him?”
Anyway, whoever Yuen is/was, we probably don’t know what he actually looked like; which means he could possibly be Feral, or maybe Meela’s father. I’m still not convinced that Yuen is Feral (I’m pretty sure Feral has to be Yuen or Mal).
I guess I’ll end my speculations :) I’m excited about what comes next!
Hehe… I now think that Yuen may be Feral – as Feral also has a blue notebook/journal (see page 111, and note how battered it is in the present).
But isn’t the guy that killed yuen’s dad feral?!
nah that was a guy called Korin look at eg page 161
yeah, Feral has a Journal, but we still don’t know if it belongs to him or someone else, like.. Yuen xD What if Feral accidentally killed Yuen when he tried to help him while his new aborving power went out of control? D: and then he kept his journal like a reminder of the awful past?
Time will tell… but this is getting so exciting! :B
I agree with She-Griffin! It makes sense if Yuen is Feral because Meela didn’t start having those dreams until she met Feral. I think some how his magic is affecting her, allowing her access to his buried memories since he doesn’t remember who he is/can’t talk about it and took on a new identity as Feral.
And since Meela is experiencing the dream as Yuen, she naturally sees it as herself since she has no way to look at herself in the dream save a mirror or if she has a bird’s eye view of what’s going on. But in the dream she IS Yuen, hence why he appears to be her, sharing the same hair cut here as her even after she got it redone…. But as She-Griffin points out: the blue notebook! More then coincidence!
Either way, I can’t wait to see more connections and the final revelation. This is after all one of my most favorite webcomics! (I still have to buy the book of it…. PFFT-fail!)
Actually, a mirror wouldn’t work. If you’re dreaming and you look in a mirror, the mirror doesn’t really work. (It can’t reflect correctly, or at least can’t reflect what’s moving). This is one way to begin lucid dreaming… Which would be neat for Meela to do.
I also thing that Yuen is Feral. When Meela dream about that clan fight, it was told that Terin (Yuens dad) and Korin (the guy who challenges him) are related: Terin is Korins uncle. And both of them are remarkably alike Feral. :)
I agree, I don’t really think feral is yuen yet.
Light Bulb! I think you’re on to something here… Beautiful storytelling leaves little hints when you go back and look…
I agree that Yuen will look like Meela while she dreams, and that we have no clue what Yuen actually looks like, but I don’t think it’s Feral.
I’ve always thought that Mal was Feral, even before someone had translated the diary entry that Yuen had written. There is actually a translation lower down on the page here right now. Mal takes a demon’s power, similar to how Feral has the power of a demon. But I’ve also always thought that Mal looked like he could be a young Feral.
I would like to point out that in a previous dream we see Yuen expressing a love for pears. Later on, back in reality, we see Feral sneaking around the castle and coming upon a crate of pears. He smiles then grabs it.
Small, but I believe important.
Actually, it is Mal that first expresses the love for pears. He says “oh, are those pears? I love pears!” and Yuen goes “me too!”
Mal also refused to get a clan marking, which Feral also lacks.
I’ve been wondering about this since a while back now, and noticed that the beads that Mal has on his necklace look strikingly similar to the ones Feral has as earrings. Could be a total coincidence or me looking for things that arent really there, but I’m rooting for “Mal is Feral” anyhow.
*delurk* Count me in as one more in the ‘Mal = Feral’ camp; I’ve been thinking that for a while. But either way, I’m pretty sure there /is/ a tie between the dreams and Feral.
Either way, I’m looking forward to finding out. :)
meeelaaaa ;_; <3
Hey Im looking for the translated alphabet of the weird language. I know that the letter was decoded but Id rather have the alphabet instead. Also is a dot the space between words? Thats whats throwing me off in my decode quest
Someone translated it all on the forums. The first two letters would be combined or something, though, so it gets pretty confusing if you don’t know the alphabet. They deleted the forums, so I don’t know where you could find the alphabet anymore.
The dots between the cluster of letters represents the separation of one word from another.
The underscores (or this thing “_”) stand for an actual “period” marker.
(ex: “_ _ _” equals “…”)
I actually have the translated alphabet drop me an email (b/c i don’t understand that whole forum thing ([email protected])) and I’ll scan it to you. Translating it’s kinda hard if I remember right (or at least time consuming) because the author (as it is never stated who wrote the letter, but is heavily implied to be Yuen) condensed the “characters” (or letters) within certain words.
(ex: The word ” the” consists of only 2 “characters” b/c the letters “t” and “h” are condensed into 1 “character”.
Haha, I designed the letter.
O so it was you and not Celesse. Well i must say you gave me quiet a headache decoding that thing, but I enjoyed every second ^^
Holy crap! You have a lot of time on your hands. xD I swear that it must be yours and Celesse’s secret language.
Well the letter said:
“So the village is as quiet as usual. Mal’s parents treat me like their own son, but I still miss mine. Especially mother.
Mal seems to be LP(let’s play?) in spirits today.
He’s talking more and more about going out on an adventure. I’m not sure what he means but he’s been going oun and oun about this after a strange visitor me encountered. Mal was telling him how was practicing to get stronger. The stranger told mal about a power he could give him that would help him. I kept telling him he shouldn’t but he went ahed and agreed. When it was done, Mal had this weird mark in his palm. It’s kind of freak since the middle has what looks like an eye that just stares at you when you look at it.
I’m concerned for Mal. H’s getting wore reckless every day now. I’m afraid to tell his parents because I don’t want him to get in trouble. Though I might have to after yesterday. Mal killed a demon. And took it’s power. He’s changed a little. But I still see him as mal.
I’m so confused”
OMG! So Mal has the demon power that Feral has! Hmmmmmmmmm, gee, I wonder….
Hmm, has Feral ever been barehanded before/have we ever seen both his palms?
On page 195 there’s a very clear illustration of Feral using the glowy magic hand on the cat-dude.
There’s actually a few goofs on my part. the “LP” should have been “UP”
Mal HAS to be Feral HAS TO.
I’m working on a alphabet right now I’ll post it when I’m done
Alternate universe Meela = Yuen??????
Awww @ first I was like OMG, CONNER’S TWIN IS STILL ALIVE…. but then I just realized it was just poisened Meela =_-.
I think its so cute that Meela wears Feral’s shirts as pjs :}
I think that’s Meela’s daddy.
Why can’t this update more then once a week? T-T
Weird, but not the weirdest dream sequence I’ve ever seen. But DUDE! Meela looks CREEPY! Poison will do that, I suppose. The last panel supports my idea that in dreaming about Yuen, Meela’s subconscious superimposes her own face over Yuen’s real face. He couldn’t have gotten a haircut ala’ Holland JUST like hers.
i feel like i’m missing out on something. we saw her father, then eventually her mother, get killed. but her brothers? where were they previously in the comic? i was certain feral was one of the pack that attacked meela’s father – and that his adoption of her was a result of his feelings of guilt…
Her Father and mother? Do you mean yuen’s parents?
Feral does not remember anything from his past, and Meela has just decided she is going to follow him around, since she is lonely. Now we are starting to just learn more about Meela’s and Ferals past, since it seems Meela has an ability with dreams, and something with feral sets that off.
I believe she’s talking about pg 09 where you see the “shadowy killer” (for lack of a better word) over 2 bodies. The 1 in the foreground is Meela’s and Tanner’s father while the second body is Conner (I always though it was the mom too until i looked at some concept art of Tanner in the Gallery and it mentions/shows a picture of Tanner; if you look about you’ll notice the hairstyle on the second body matches Conner’s).
thank you for taking the time to explain. i reread the story. i see now why people think feral is either yuen or mal. in either case, meela and feral have similar baggage to deal with…so it’s more understandable why feral, the bounty hunter, is so attached/concerned for her.
YAY! Yuen with colour! Guys…. Feral’s a black wolf… Ergo- cannot be Yuen.
SO pumped! Now I must wait another week xD
Yuen is identical to Meela, it’s been heavily implied that she’s superimposing herself over whatever Yuen actually looks like (especially since Yuen’s hairstyle changed in her dreams when Meela got a haircut, too). Due to some of the similarities between Yuen and Feral, it leads to a lot of speculation that they’re the same person (a lot of the comments above you have info on that).
Or that Mal is feral, since in the translated letter(in the gallery) says Mal got some demon powers…
Yes I was implying that feral is Mal/Mal is Feral :P Mainly because of the letter yes, but even before I read the translation(some people have a lot of time on their hands o__o) I figured Feral is Mal because of the scars on his leg and his personality.
In response to Ren, I think Meela’s placing herself in Yuen’s paws because they look similar, anyways. As to the hallucinations? It makes sense(to me, many people just get confused when I try to explain what I think to them, I’m not the best at converting thoughts/feelings-words) that because she remembered getting a haircut her brain gave Yuen, who looks like her, a haircut, too.
Also, it could just be the artists refining art styles/giving Yuen a cleaner look, but that is doubtful, very doubtful.
As for how Meela would be gaining dreams because of Feral of Yuen, I think the artists took wolves and their natural tendencies(pack behaviour, community animals) and boosted that into the graphic novel.
Not saying that this theory applies to this novel but it could, you never know: I’ve heard of/ read up on theories that pack animals share thoughts. They pick/choose the thought to convey, but in a relaxed state(unconcious, dreaming), their subconcious takes over and sends the dream around. Running with this, it could be Yuen shared his experience with Mal, his best friend, his pack brother, and Mal(Feral, in this assumption) is feeling guilty about his past and what has happened to Yuen, and dwells on it constantly. Being in close proximity to Feral, Meela recieves these dreams.
Also, the magic in him could project thoughts just as well as any theory.
Same person? My mind jumps to split personality disorder, then to an imaginary friend :P
If this is the case, why do both cubs have complete families(until they’re killed)?
ugh. It’s late, and, like I said, I have troubles explaining things, especially if they’re only half-formed in my mind.
I vote Feral is Mal.
I more agree that Yuen is probably Feral. It’s been pointed out that Mal might be, but… Mal has freckles. Feral also has a resemblance to the males from Yuen’s family.
Maybe something happens with Mal and Yuen (Feral?) takes whatever power that Mal is using (see above letter from the gallery) to save something or someone or do something. Guess we will have to wait and see!!
Freckles can go away. I used to have a bunch of freckles. Now I don’t. Not a one.
Im notgoing to join in on the debate about who Feral is, but i am going to say that all of you guys here are really observant. I mean honestly, how do you notice the colors of a book?! Anyway, really Meela! He didn’t lie! Its not his fault he died……….
We are the insane fans who A) notice small details and B) speculate constantly anyways. XD
The poison causes premonitions and hallucinations, some majorly weird stuff is going to start happening.
As long as she doesn’t see flying bunnies sucking on fish, I’m fine with delusional stuff. XD
Maybe she will…. O_o
Someone should make the final book into a movie! It would be so cool…..
Sounds cool! I’d love to see it as a movie or even a series! :D
The whole thing could be a movie, or an animated tv series… I know one webcomic that is making their own animated series to try getting on the tellie, I think it’s “2Masters” and “E-depth Angel” on Mayshing.com . It’s a fun series so far, I’d like to see where it’s going to go.
Poor sweet Meela…
@.@ This is so confusing yet so fun!
I will have to agree with you on that. Next Friday cant come fast enough!
Poor Meela! T^T
They had a brother named Conner?
And the second Meela in the last pannel is Yuen?
I’m so confused now.
There are sketches and scrap work of Conner in the gallery.
Poor Meela… she looks so sad :(
hope Meela will feel petter…
oh… Yuen looks a lot like Meela when colored o.o …
but it’s probably because it is Meela’s dream… ^.^
She has contracted poison.
Wouldn’t it be simpler for feral to be Mal? I mean he did absorb the energy of the poison dude; and has that red eye going on.
Have Feral’s palms ever shown throughout the story?
You’re right! Feral’s always wearing gloves, and he did absorb the energy of the “poison dude” XD!
