oh my god the cuteness i can’t aaaaaaaah
so adorable, isn’t it?
:33< *ac pokes karkitty* •U•
Aaaah, it’s too cute! He’s too cuuute!
Holland, you… you… You little waffle with whip cream on top!
great, now i’m thinking of adult Holland sitting in a vat of whipped cream…
It is isn’t it? XP
Maybe Feral is reminded of him and Mal when they were kids whenever he plays with kid Holland.
Aw he is so adorable!
Some kids just have that special thing about them. Holland definitely has it with Feral. Whatever he is doing. Do we get a chance to find out in the future? Or is it just left up to speculation?
For a second I was like “Why doesnt he just turn into a swan and fly out the window?” but then I realized he probably isnt old enough….unless its different rules for lyrians. Maybe he’d just turn into a baby swan….a swanlet or like a swanling? Oh wows… WAIT CAN HE TURN INTO A SWANLET??? (>A<) OMGAH BABEH SWAN HOLLAND!! Grey fluffeh lil swanlet just floppin around trying to cheer up poor Feral.
EEEEEEEEE Cute! ^-^
EEE Cute seconded! Want to see that now…
OOH! Make a voting incentive out of that!!!!
For future edification, a young swan is known as a cygnet. :)
I agree; that would be absolutely adorable.

– I don’t think my computer likes me ~ sorry girls :(
Pokemon instantly comes to mind.
A roe deer is a kid? XD I thought “fawn” was universal for most cervids except for moose, elk, caribou, etc.
A baby rat is a kitten. *shivers* I can think of some cruel pranks to come from that.
Dude, if someone said they got me a kitten and they handed me a baby rat, I would be ecstatic! (Currently have two adorable ratty boys)
Aren’t baby swans supposed to be ugly though? Unless the Ugly Duckling was just a big fat lie! My childhood! noooo
They’re actually not all that ugly. I think they’re utterly adorable.
Where did he get all that cloth and i really want to see him as a baby swan!
Baby swans aren’t ugly per se… though they’re not particularly graceful. The point of The Ugly Duckling was that baby swans make pretty weird looking ducklings. It was that he was being compared to a baby duck and falling short of that ideal that made him ugly… not his swanness in particular. You could reverse it and have The Ugly Cygnet just as easily (in theory, in practise ducklings are beyond adorable and the story would be weird).
Cygnets are adodorabler than ducklings.
I’m not sure at what age Holland learned to transform (I’ll have to check with Algy) but even if he could right now, he is not yet old enough to fly. So yes, he’s still an awkward, fluffy gray cygnet at this point ;)
All I can imagine now is this little cygnet waddling over to giant demonic Feral-wolf like “lets be friends!”
Or maybe poofing into a cygnet to evade capture making Jyaku chase him around–which would be hysterical.
Either way if Holland poofs into a baby swan it would SIGNIFICANTLY improve finals week.
If you can draw. This MUST be done. Like, now. Go. Do it. Before I set you on fire. THE WORLD NEEDS THE CUTENESS. >.>
Actually I would love to do some fan art :3 Ive just been so swamped with finals. Is there any fan art policy? Algy, Celesse, may I draw your lovely characters?
Cygnet. Baby swans are called Cygnets. It comes from Cygnus, the Latin word for swan.
I feel edified! :D
And now I know what the constellation Cygnus is suppose to be, haha.
Ever hear of:
POLOPHYLAX, THE GUARDIAN OF THE POLE – GLOBUS AEROSTATICUS, THE BALLOON – CANCER MINOR, THE LESSER CRAB – MACHINA ELECTRICA, THE ELECTRICAL GENERATOR – MUSCA BOREALIS, THE NORTHERN FLY – PSALTERIUM GEORGII, THE LUTE OF KING GEORGE III – OFFICINA TYPOGRAPHICA, THE PRINTING OFFICE – LIMAX, THE SLUG – or SCIURUS VOLANS, THE FLYING SQUIRREL?
>_> Was there a point to that very strange list?
they are constellations that “might” have been … we were on the topic of constellations – somewhat. :P
THE DUDE. THE BIRD CROW DUDE. RIGHT THERE IN THE HALL THING. CROW DUDE’S HAIR.
Haha, those are two of his brothers. eue
I hope at some point, I know it’s unlucky now, that we could see more of Holland’s brothers look like. Perhaps in a vote incentive or something.
This is about my 5th time completely rereading the comic, and I love all the little details I had over looked before, like Holland’s brothers’ appearance here, or how sometime back, Meela’s blood activated the mark of Feral’s hand
I SEE HIM BUT WHAT DOES HE MEAN? WHEN DID WE SEE HIM BEFORE?
We didn’t see these kids before. As Algy said, those are Holland’s brothers and they’ve only been mentioned in passing by Holland (who has yet to give up on his habit of escaping the palace to follow Feral around, apparently).
As for “crow dude” . . . he’s talking about a certain individual who was up to no good. The job he hired Feral for, which led to the battle between him and Visrial (and Meela’s poisoning) was related to what “crow dude” was doing and that fight actually took place on his roof.
“The job he hired Feral for” — “he” being Holland. Just realized how vague that was. ^^;
holland is such a problem child ^^ but he’s lovable like that.
Holland’s face in panel 3… Oh my god, so adorable in that ‘i-hate-you-mom’ way! :3

Why would I question my own eating habits sense they mirror yours? :)
(brings slow churned lemon butter)
Come, let us gorge ourselves on these legs of Crabs!
SAVE SOME FOR MEEEEE!!!!!!
Can… Can I keep him? Please?
Be honest. Little Holland’s angry face was inspired by the “Angry Bluebird” photo, wasn’t it? http://www.songbirdgarden.com/store/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=7722
OMG, he’s so cute!
Lol! I think it was!!
Hehe… from Holland’s perspective, Sexy Deery Guy is too tall to fit in the panel. <3
He’s still so cute. I really like how this page was drawn fer some reason. really great job!
Hollands face in third panel is Soooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!
Why didn’t Jyaku move their camp to where Holland couldn’t find them again?
Who says he didn’t? He probably put up all kinds of wards too, but Hollands child-wonderment was unstoppable.
Yes, he did try moving around, but it didn’t really work. Plus Jyaku started to worry about the little babu wandering around the forest alone and in danger looking for them.
Could it also have been that Feral started getting attached to him, or does that happen later?
Oh my! He is SO adorable!!!!
Isn’t Holland currently still unconscious in the background while Jyaku’s giving this enlightening exposition?
He sure is.
Omgosh! Holland is unconscious!!!! Let’s tell emanrassing childhood stories about him!!!
