    Don’t worry, Puck. Your whiskers are still there, they’re just harder to see with the more natural lighting.

    We got an early shot of Elvis and an early shot of Puck, but no early shot of Lupin! I love early Lupin. In fairness, I love them all then and now.

    I think Puck’s whiskers went the way of the Man’s “tail”. Maybe Puck’s whiskers will also grow back like the Man’s tail grew back? Wait! Now that Puck mentions it, just how has Lupin been “reading” Puck’s whiskers since they disappeared? And where have everyone else’s whiskers gone? <GASP!>

    Okay i’ve been bringing up the Bureau thing all week, but I didn’t think the STRIP would (Also props to georgia for using the early art too instead of going for the reprints). And my shipping for these two has offically gone from something I keep bringing up for my own amusment to “utterly adorable” as Elvis gets needing to hide under a bureau a while and the quite thank you elvis is quite sweet. I’m fully aware i’m just reading into this but it is adorable.. as is Puck being utterly confused as it’s been a while since we got classic “i’m a boy.” levels of confused puck. He raises a good point though.

    Oh so much to love. Flashback to Elvis’s “forward my mail” comment (we fans nailed it)! Gentle Sophie crying with her tissue box – we feel you, sweetie! And yeah, where are your whiskers? You were a lighter shade of black then too. (I know, I know, the artist has explained how she developed Puck’s appearance).

    I love comparing Georgia’s current style to the old one! It reads me of when I was a big Garfield fan, collecting the books and seeing how the art style evolved over time, which was pretty neat. Meanwhile, I am very much not an artist; my sister got all the artistic talent, LOL.

    Okay, so your heart’s broken

    You lie around mopin’

    Cryin’ and cryin’

    You say you’re thinkin’ of bureau divin’?

    Well, before you should completely crash, dig this

    Even Elvis gets the blues some time

    There’s no exception to the rule

    Listen, baby, strife is natural, but it’s not cool

    I ain’t lyin’, everybody gets the blues

    How can you help it when you know it’s movin’ day

    And all your favorite things have been packed away

    Oh-oh-oh, heck on earth is all you see

    You’re out of touch with reality

    And now you cry but when you do

    Your friends come around to comfort you

    Everybody has the blues, some time

    Things will happen that make life cruel

    Listen, baby, it’s only natural, it’ll be cool

    I want to tell ya that

    Everybody gets the blues

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    Previously:

    Beatrixia: _Have you considered asking for (your jewels) back?

    Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Excellent idea. I would like to invite our elven guests to have lunch with us where His Highness Fe-Anaro can make his formal request.

    Fe-Anaro: You are most kind, Your Majesty. I understand your royal jester’s troupe is most entertaining.

    The Queen: Indeed they are. I have instructed Lupinium and Ora Z to demonstrate their latest Thwump routine.

    Enter Thomios

    Thomios: Your Majesty and Honored Guests, it is my pleasure to present our lunch of fresh-caught Perfect Perch, courtesy of Fresh and Salt Water Cat. And a course of salad and vegetables from the Cosmo Nursery.

    Eldest Son Maed-Ros: Your offerings are most delicious.

    Thomios: For dessert we have pastries made with Queen Bee Titania’s Xanadu Honey. And for the cheese course we have a selection of the finest cheeses whose source we know not.

    Second Son Mag-Lor: Courtesy of those from the Ancient and Accepted Guild of Procurers, no doubt.

    Sometime Later

    Fe-Anaro: Your Majesty, Noble Cats, and Most Valiant Kittens, you have shown my sons and I kindness beyond measure. Now I would request one more courtesy: The return of the jewels we have long sought after.

    All: Hear! Hear!

    Mag-Lor: I must write this in our chronicles.

    Elvis-Anum: You are the family scribe?

    Mag-Lor: Yes. I have scrolls from the time my family began this quest.

    Beatrixia: Now there’s a treasure indeed!

    All the references yesterday and Georgia just went and did it! Incredibly sweet of the boys (including Burt) to go through the old footage to reassure Sophie, even if it brings up some odd things.

    Loving how Ms. Georgia presents the ‘old footage’ as a low-res, archival thing.

    Paraphrasing below: Reminds me of how some of the Second Episodes of a 2-episode arc would start on ST:TNG …

    Preview of Coming Attraction!

    From Georgia’s IG yesterday:

    “If all the recent changes and moves to and from the Big Pink House have you confused—you’re not the only one! I’ve seen many comments asking to revisit the old charts and had a few folks write in for a run down of who is where. Coming up on March 12, I’m going to run a Sunday strip that will show the whole Big Pink House in a cross section—like a dollhouse! I’ll label a few parts and give everyone a peek into the house itself. The changes came on slowly over 9 years, and now understandably it’s time for a new chart! (Puck will be thrilled, lol!)…”

    I wouldn’t worry about the whiskers, Puck. I’d be more worried about the fact that you now have gigantic eyeballs. Look at those BBs you used to have for eyes.

    I had a similar reaction when I realized, after avoiding the mirror for ages, that parts of my eyebrows were seemingly gone (very lighter, thinner) and I said “WHO STOLE MY EYEBROWS?!”
