Aww. Crest is so CUTE.  He's got it BAD for Suspira. At least he gets it.  Yes, he's going to have to be VERY patient, but Suspira will be totally worth it.
Either that, or she'll get the shits with him and in a burst of rage and magical power explodes him into a cloud of rapidly expanding incandescent gasses that used to be Crest.

Crest is going to take Suspira to Taco Bell?! :o

Dum dum dum... Regina!

Or again this is Fata...

Still it would be interesting if that was real Regina, maybe she got bored with her life and wanted a change so she choose to be like May and became a jester?

I bet May's just gonna calm down and say: "Oh wait, it's just Fata, again. Oh she, and her silly illusions."

Very surprising to see Regina! I wasn't a fan of her in Book 0, so if this is the real Regina standing up, I'm interested to see how she's changed over the course of time. It'll also be interesting to see if May still has feelings for her.

Didn't even think of the Fata option... I guess May will have to pick up on if she's real or not.

If she is real, Maybe her relationship died and she lost faith or motivation to become a good Vespel sorceress and folloowed this avenue due to Maytag's inspiration... She can't be that bad if she's made it past the first round of the competition... maybe she adds a few minor magic tricks.

Maybe Regina has gone all Glen Close in Fatal Attraction and turned into a Bunny Boiler?
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

Alright, if Maytag, Bern and Suspira are the super powered team, who's the underdog team?

Crest for Rogue
Regina for Mage

Or do we presume that Crest covers both the Rogue and Fighter roles?  Heck, Maybe Regina has a split role with Bard now.

It's nice to finally find out why Bernadette is always wearing that scarf! Also, I don't remember, but is that the city where Bernadette grew up / joined that gang with Clarien or whateverhernamewas? Did we ever learn where that part of her life took place?

On Regina - I think it's the real one from book 0. I suspected it would be her from the foreshadowing pages, which if I remember also included Moss and Fata in a separate panel, so my bets are on a real one.

I also think she's going to tank and burn in the competition. Unless her personality did a 180 she never seemed to have the self confidence to succeed at something as brutal as stand up comedy. I thought the mage test would be easier by comparison and she failed that due to low self esteem. But who knows?

I am much more curious now to see if Moss meets Regina again, and what sort of snark he would have for her. And whether or not she's grown enough to snark back, heh heh.

Will we have some Bern origin backstory now?
At least the mystery of the scarf was revealed, no wonder she wears it all the time if that's the last thing she has from her mother.

And if this is indeed the city where Bern joined Blackbird gang, maybe that first Bern crush too will make an appearance, crossing fingers ;)

That city (is that Galahad?) looks very industrial. Very different from all we have seen yet.
Maybe they have less magic?

It would explain Bern take on magic if she was raised there, indeed the city looks more industrial and technology oriented than magic.

And current page, it's Regina all right, and it's pretty rare to see May so shocked :D
I now doubt it's Fata.

Regina's back! And next miss Maneater (forgot her real name)! And then we get to find out where Mary's been this whole time!
Hi.
I've been out for two years, so warn me if I act like I missed something obvious. ^^;

...oh, and to anyone who missed me, I'm open to hugs, kisses, and intense tearful cuddles.

Well, as opposed to miss Maneater, Regina didn't left the story by being captured, restrained by a magical device, and reduced by a powerful fire spell into a little pile of ash.

I figure it's real Regina as well.  Experience tells me that Maytag is observant enough to catch on if it was someone impersonating her.  Also, I take it that the comedy act didn't go too well, so that fits what we know of Regina.  Fata would have been better at it simply because of her ego.  She wouldn't have been able to play herself down that way I think.

Yeah, I'm thinking the real Regina.  Interesting to see she gave up on a career as a Vespel sorceress, or any sorceress for that matter, but she's young and I think this shows a better truth of youth not being simply excellent at something from the get go but stumbling around as they try to find their place in the world... I wonder if her material is really good of if she just told all the jokes that Maytag told her...

So she's a below average sorceress and a below average entertainer.  This is what happens when you multi-class people! :P

Didn't Fata already pretend to be Regina that one time in the Bed and Breakfast? I doubt we'd be seeing her pull the same stunt again. Plus we wouldn't have seen her face shadowed out, looking at the entry list and saying "Maytag, could it really be you?" or something like that.

Just a silly thought, but I realize that Regina's new life as a jester was foreshadowed back in one of the very early intermissions! Just as a little joke, but it's amusing to note nonetheless. On a more topic-related discussion, what's the consensus here? Did Regina fall for Maytag after what the latter said to her while she was unconscious (maybe she could hear after all, or at least felt the kiss) in Book 0, and is now emulating the jester's life is a very stalkerish sort of way?

Seems so, Regina realised that she loves May and/or her boyfriend was more interested into magical studies than her, and the crush burned out.

Now the question is how May will react to maybe only person which could tempt her to cheat on Bern, since we know May has feeligns toward Regina.

Or being positive when Bern will return we may get a threesome :P

Now we need Bern to get her own temptress in her part of the story.

Oops!  I hope Bern likes a threesome because Maytag really does love Regina.  If Regina loves her back now, it won't be a "fling" like Umber was.

I still like Crest better than Regina as the Dr. Who companion, though.

Man... I knew it was going to be awkward as soon as Regina showed up, but this is getting creepy.
She's a stalker now...

Hmm, Kiran, I like the idea of Bern being seduced somehow. That would be an interesting, hitherto unprecedented development. Especially if she falls to temptation, and the sound-transmitting rings are still active. 0_o

Two questions here. One, does May actually love Regina? There were instances in Book 0 where she seemed more-than-friendly (especially at the end) but more with either admiration of Regina's efforts, or generally smitten with the cuteness, or maybe it was just Maytag's trademarked libido acting up. If anything, I'd say Maytag views Regina as a very close gal pal, while Regina might be the first one to take it further. And on that note, my second question...How's Regina going to react to Bern's existence?

Also, non-comic related, but how do I edit my profile pic and signature and all that? I'm new here, and the profile tab only asks me if I want to delete my account...

Hmmm, I dunno.  It'll be interesting to see just how much of that story about Fata that Maytag decides to relay.  It'll pretty much mean she has to confess to kissing Regina, let her know that she was tempted by the idea of Regina coming onto her, let Regina know that she's a bisexual and in a relationship with Bern... If she tells her the whole story.  I don't see why she wouldn't let her know that she and Bern are an item now though.

I'm not sure what to think about Regina as a lesbian or bisexual.  I get the impression that she looks up to Maytag more as a mentor, big sister or hero than a potential partner.

No need to really ask about Lucient.  He'd been influenced by Seraph for a long time in how to act towards women and believe that they're simply over emotional burdens that get in the way of advancement in magic.  I'm thinking that with Seraph's death he felt like he had to live up to his teacher/mentor's hopes for him and continue Seraph's work.  But maybe things got even darker in his drive for knowledge...

I do like the idea though that Maytag might be sorely tempted with Bern away and Regina as a girl she also cares relatively deeply for.  Love the other suggestion that Bern might even run into an old flame and be tempted.  If all goes well though, Bern shouldn't take too long to find her father in that city and reunite with Maytag for a few hours.  I'm sure the rings are helping as well.
