So in other words it’s a pop-culture tomb, or something like that.
Typical, He obeys Maga’s orders and still gets yelled at. I may have said this before but, that $#!% is really getting old.
But as for the “vessel”, I can’t help but wonder exactly what it looks like. Humphrey should be able to recognize it on sight as that’s what it was designed for, but what is it?
They _really_ need to sit down and have a chat about goals, desires, expectations, and obligations. Maga’s culture almost certainly has guidelines for forced engagements(even if they’re nothing more than protocols for how to be polite even if you each loathe the other), and Humphrey doesn’t know them, and so is likely breaking some of them and coming across as offensively barbaric.
She slapped the marriage spell on him, she deserves all the pain she’s been getting.
Goal: to get released from the spell
Desire: to be released from the spell
Expectation: to at some point be released from the spell
Obligation: to release him from the spell
Maga reminds me of the so called protagonists in Jurassic Park 2, the so called “good guys” who were directly responsible for every death on the island and all T-Rex deaths in San Francisco, everything that has happened to Humphrey since she put that spell on him had been directly attributable to her but she has so far been abrogated of all responsibility. For the Greater Good can only get you so far.
Hopefully, unlike the protagonists of JP2, karma will actually come back to bite Maga.
Oh jeez… we’re about to get a pay off in PS238, only to have a new mystery here. Aaron really understands how to keep people coming back, doesn’t he? ^_^
Yeah, getting yelled at for something somebody’s never bothered to teach. Wife? Sounds like he should have some rights in this somewhere. Shouldn’t there be the equivalent of broker/lawyers who deal with abuses like this? If there is no consent or particpiation in this binding/wedding, it’s closer to a curse and slavery. Is Hefast saying the link is a marriage because they do have feelings or because the magic has changed or is different than we/Humphrey’s been told.
The vessel as something recognizable to someone from our sphere? Since Oz has already mentioned his war of the Stars plays, it could be something like Yoda or R2 or Han in the metal. Or something unrelated and common to our/his birth world. The superman ‘S,’ a Tut mask, Snoopy, an Enterprise or X-wing, or hugo award. My bet is something geeky more than a Gatway arch, though that is another good image.
I’m betting it has something to do with either Elvis Presley or Bruce Campbell…
“Hail to the King, baby.”
What Star Wars reference is certain to have edited *out* of War of the Stars, yet be instantly recognizable to a denizen of the 1st Sphere as something that needs to be smashed open?
“His soul is in that Jar Jar!”
A TARDIS, perhaps? It’s going to be a visual gag, that’s for sure.
The Tomb is the Bat Cave (Batman: Animated Series). His Vessel is the Giant Penny that instead of Lincoln on the face its a Han Solo in Carbonite design featuring Oz instead. Probably even tried/begged to force the poor “Vulcan advisor woman” to say “I love you.” just so he could respond appropriately.
Hefast is probably just assuming that they’re married because they’ve got the marriage-link spell on them.
Gotta be YT-1300 492727ZED
“…not recognizable to anyone not from the …”
From the what?
Hopefully, “first sphere”. So it’s a call box carved of stone and labelled “Nothing Important, Move Along” on the front, with “Ust-Jay Idding-Kay” scratched on the side.
“…wouldn’t be recognizable by anyone who wasn’t from the first sphere.”
By looking at it from a different angle on the screen, I can confirm that’s what he said.
I’m betting it’ll be a blue police box.
Look for him in the forty second grave.
His vessel is probably an eye. Or more likely a lightsaber
I am hoping for either carboanite, or the Millenium Falcon.
No, I figured out what *must* be on Oz’s tomb:
Jeez, I’m out of it for a little while and everyone gets delusions of grandeur!
Is it a requirement for spirit guides that they *never* give you the exact required specifications up front, and therefore leave you frustrated and floundering? I get that this is very much what Oz would do, but it does get a little old as a trope. Some trope-breaking on that one would be nice.
In the third panel it kinda looks like he’s indicating that the vessel is something fairly small…
