Poor Adrianna, I think everyone saw this coming except her. Just to warn those of you expecting some sort of Baywatch-esque rescue, that’s the end of the scene. Though you can probably assume she doesn’t drown. Probably.

Ha! I really love the pacing of those top 4 panels.

Particularly 3 and 4, I like that the water is not visible until there is a giant splash.

I wonder, if Adrianna had never punched Rhea, would she still have been shoved into the water?

Meh well. In the third-to-last panel, I was hoping Galak was going to do the same to Rhea…

Wow! The facial expressions, the splash, the surface of the water in panel 6, it’s all amazing! Rose, you continually stun me with your talent.

Hehehe! I love the last three. “Blorp” Has to be one of the most awesome sound effects ever!

I sense punchings in the future. :)

And so Rhea joins Adrianna and Danil amongs the perpetrators of random and unprovoked violence, of which there seems to be a lot in this comic. Maybe a Scottish thing? ;P

Really love the expressions too. Those last panels are priceless.

lol.. do we get to see her in a ‘wet cat’ expression next? =D.. that would complete the whole ‘here’s how you learn to swim’ theeme rather well hehe.

I vote too for an Adrianna painting with a furious “wet cat” expression. To be used as a desktop wallpaper for 15” of awesomeness!

Yet it was the sigh of someone who managed to DROWN a mage today, life is getting a little more fair now!
I am falling for these characters. They are friggin’ awesome.

I’ve never really commented before, but this piece of epic fail just needed a comment.

Bloody brilliant! That’s sadly how I learned how to swim, I got thrown in the pool followed shortly thereafter by my mother who floated around with me on her stomach.

Huzzah for crash courses!

I loved that dead panned expression on Galak’s face in the last panel, I can imagine Rhea feeling a little nervous right now. I think she expected Adrianna to somehow get super awesome swimming powers from her dad, who happens to be a magic fueled merman? (jk)

I have a feeling Adrianna will become an excellent swimmer before the comic ends, especially if this trend continues.

“I can’t swim.”
“Really? Well, now I’m going to tell you a story.”
“Wow, that was a neat story.”
“Yes it was. *shove*”
“*sploosh*”
“Huh. D’you think she meant it when she said she couldn’t swim?”

I LOVE that. Granted, I would probably throttle anyone who tried it with me (assuming I lived) but eventually I would find it funny because I’m that kind of person.

Well there is a difference in learning to swim at a pool, vs learning to swim while fully clothed in winter clothing. Try it sometime. Unless you know what you are doing, the clothes will pull you under even if you know how to swim.

I know what you mean. Having gone through boot camp in the Navy, I can tell you swimming with clothes on is no fun. You can do it, but it is almost three times harder. I had to do it for my finals. It was to simulate an abandon ship situation. I had to jump from the side of the pool out as far as possible and then stay afloat without assistance for as long as possible. I barely qualified as a class 4 swimmer (least likely to need dry clothes in a real emergency).
