[ So Delightful ]

Title Text: Only someone so arrogant would act so humble

It just so happens Zachary is also Opener-atheist.

I have a feeling this is going to end with the two of them becoming very good friends (maybe dating, perhaps?) and her being the only one of the forest animals that will treat him normally. I also have a feeling she is going to go back to the woods and fake believing in the Opener.

I don't know whether I want this back and forth to go on longer, or for the realization that he just doesn't want to be a prophet to get through to her.

Don't you hate it when a culture worships you as a god, and the only member of said culture that does not worship you doesn't believe that you hate being worshiped?

O Zachary, this explanation may take awhile. Fortunately it's what you'd try to explain, and she came to 'talk' about. I like the distance effect in panel four, it helps with the delivery.

It sounds like all her friends are so she'll have heard all the scriptures if she believes them or not.

For dear Zach, life is hard
when it comes to ferals..
What he says and what he does
the truth never quite levels.
There's a reason for it all
and, if not, there's an excuse.
It makes it hard to argue
when accused of being obtuse.
She's worried and confused
and anger's her best defence
She'll make him admit fraud;
she'll break this 'mild' pretence.
So stand by for a visit, Tiny tum.
This 'prophet' is gonna come
whether it's as in the holy book
or by the power of Jess’s right hook...

Just give up, you can't win against her. But if you give up, then she will think even less of you. Either way your bucked.

I would like the dialogue for the next strip to go something like this:

Zack: Look here! The only reason any of this 'Opener' nonsense keeps going on is because nobody's been listening to me! And the only reason it started is because I pushed some stupid button on a door!

Jessica: Wait, that's not what I...

Zack (interrupting): Then I was forced to stand around in a cold, dark room everyone says it was a temple until I pressed another button.

Jessica (quietly): Wait, that doesn't match what...

Zack (still monologueing): Since then, I've been mercilessly followed around, had my personal belongings stolen and can't get a moment's peace because of all the chanting outside the house at every hour!

Jessica (quietly): So that's where Falstaff and Truck keep sneaking off to.

Zack (continuing): Well I've had it! I'm sick of all the mindless followers who refuse to fend for themselves despite every opportunity. I'm sick of being harassed and stolen from!
Zack looks up and shouts at the ceiling...
HEY MISTER GIANT BIRD! GET DOWN HERE! I KNOW YOU CAN HEAR ME AND WE NEED TO TALK!

*POOF!*
Pete appears.

Pete (smugly): Having a nice tantrum, are we?

Zack: Shut it!

Jessica (really quietly): I'm just going to feint now, is that okay?

To be continued...

Sorry i haven't been making comic posts much guys, but my charge cable for my laptop is broken (in ways it "shouldn't" be) and i'm trying to get them to send me a new one for free. Now i have to use the computer in the buisness office of my apartment complex, which logs me off every hour, and is only 9-5 :(

I'm not sure where this is going -- that is, I don't know if it's going to develop into a relationship or just teach Jessica some manners -- but i really like the direction it's taking. I'm pretty sure I have an old DVD of Life of Brian around here, somewhere...

Could be, or maybe he'll somehow end up helping Ink's son and unwittingly turning Jessica into a full believer.

It goes on to show she was not nearly as disbelieving as she.... well, believed.

I agree with TheOne: Zachary should grow a backbone and stand up to those critter bullies!

Perhaps even Zach will accept the role by Openermas time.

At first I tought Jessica is a stereotype of an atheist, but now, I see she's only the immature half of it. If I was her, I would inmediatelly hug Zach and say "THank you, you are on my side! I promise I will never Worship you like the other ferals do. Lets be friends forever and I love you!"

She's a realist but, like it or lump it, she's been indoctrinated into the stories of the great opener. It may take quite a few rebuttals for her to believe the legendary things 'he did' were nothing special.

I'd say Jess already believes that Zach did ordinary things, but she thinks that they were tricks of his instead of accidental or coincidences.
