"This little mother has sharp claws" was a compliment to Wanda's minion Claude, who came up with the idea of animating the portal column. Big Think has not yet cast on the portal column--when casters cast, the comic shows them do it. No magic-word-slash-cultural-reference means no magic.

I suspect we will find the meeting of minds between Big Think and Jed sufficiently dramatic, and that it will advance the story significantly.

    ... but it looks to me like Deiform _did_ just cast. He picks up CC's incapacitated golem from the cart, utters "Verwandlung" -- and tosses aside a golem greatly altered in form.

    I think the portal, Deiform, Claude, and Ivan just had a kid. Poor little thing...

    "Prague never lets you go... this dear little mother has sharp claws" is a Kafka quote about the oppressive and claustrophobic nature of Prague, his hometown. It refers to a place he can never leave, either physically or psychically, no matter how much he feels like he needs to get away from it all. The reference could just be about the MK, not necessarily about the portal column itself. An alternate interpretation could be that the rules (and following the rules) are home, no matter how claustrophobic and oppressive they may seem. Perhaps not cheating is the "little mother with sharp claws".

    we will probably know once the hyatus is done. the only things we got clear so far is that Isaac put himself in front of the doll in order to make a crotch view. and that he polymorph the doll into a kawaii betsie. o3o

    while waiting, I just opened a rhymeomancy contest (link on my sig) for those that suffer from idle thumbs symphtom. :v

    You know, I'm actually kind of surprised that there hasn't been a Discworld or even a Harry Potter reference in all of this (unless I've missed it).

    I forgot about this one, though more because I had forgotten Dumbledore's first name. I originally thought it was a play on bumblebee, what with more iconic references to bumblebear, bumblebeetle, bumblebat, etc. Practically any other animal with a name beginning with 'B' has been parodied. Especially the buzz and grunt and fly around the room bit. It's a bee and a boar. You can even see it hanging behind her.

    Did we? Was it an image, description, or name?

    Even still, this is two minor references at best. And we've not seen any for Discworld, by in large, the inspiration for a good deal of Harry Potter's premise.

    What's the point in parodying a parody? To make a better parody?

    Against Terry Pratchett?

    Earlier this year I discovered that Always Look on The Bright Side of Life originated from Monty Python's The Life of Brian. Learning that killed my dreams of making a hit parody song titled "Always Look on the Bright Side of Death", which I had been working on for several years[1] (I only did one line besides the title). It didn't help my moral to discover that my title was also a lyric to the song I was parodying.

    [1]And by "working on for years", I mean put on the backburner since I was 11.

    You should have repeated that smiley an additional 39 times. That way you'd be catching 40 winks.
