They’ve “landed” on the way but never actually… stopped… on the ground. So more like they kinda bounced off the ground and idled while everybody had their in-flight walks and potty breaks and stuff… 😉

But anyway! In more interesting news, the Fey Winds – Book One Kickstarter HAS MADE THE GOAL!! AND THE FIRST STRETCH GOAL!! So, for those keeping track, both versions of the cover will have spot gloss, and if we make it up to 35k (it’s close!!) there’ll be bookmarks for everybody who ordered a physical book! There are 5 DAYS LEFT TO PLEDGE!! (And if we make it to 40k, everybody who ordered a book will also get stickers and I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT ALL OF THIS!!!)

Fey Winds Book 1


Just in case the emotion was getting to you…
Not much charcterises Fey Winds quite like sudden mood/art changes. :p

. . .

As for landing, how much could it go wrong, really? These guys have crash-landed a dragon before, the Trashy Gasbag ought to serve them fine…

Also, I do not want to imagine a fly-by toilet break… ?

Well, on the bright side, the only way to go is down. And there’s snow everywhere if they’re still over the mountains. On the other hand, well there’s this pesky gravity.

Also, that first panel is very sweet :3

Excellent page as always 🙂

Emergency evacuation plan:
1 -Toss Sid out of the gassbag so he turns into a Dragon instantly.
2 – Once he’s flying beside the Gasbag let everyone but Kit jump onto his back.
3 – After everyone’s mounted Kit can drop her control and quickly join her friends atop Sid.
4 – Arrive to the city like a boss, riding a Dragon Prince.
5 – …profit?

hi hi

Landing is just like crashing, but you do it on purpose. Oh, and try to crash softly.

Also, I really wonder what Nigel is considering there on panel 1. Is that looking-away glance a sign he’s not entirely in the present? The world may never know.

And in this world, they use gasbags *for* crashes.
Man, there are so many good lines for this.
“flying is the art of throwing yourself at the ground, and missing.”
“Can you fly this plane and land it?”
“Surely you can’t be serious?”
“I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley”
Maybe my favorite:
“In the event of an emergency, please place your head between your knees” “and kiss your bum goodbye”

I actually went to school to be an aircraft mechanic. The joke even the instructors insisted was the closest to true, was that landings are only controlled crashes. Just look at the plane. It knows. >.<

So very very sweet. My teeth hurt and I love it!!! Then the shock. Great mood swings here. 😀

Wait, so they did get near the ground (I imagined they threw their poop overboard)? If so, then its more of a problem of figuring out how to anchor the thing. If the propellers are providing lift, they just need to gently reduce power and turn them off.

If the lift-gas is hot air, then they can just vent it. The real problem would be if it isn’t and they might need the preserve it in case they need to use it again.

But I guess that magic is holding the whole damn thing together and they have no idea what they are doing?
