I was expecting dashes and asterisks, but this is quite hilarious (and ominous)

It sounds super ominous... but when I look up Simurgh, supposedly she's a benevolent gryphside-like creature? So it could be the spaceside aren't warning Rachel of a threat to *everyone* - just a threat to *noside.*

"The queen of the flying-types is coming. Make way, or else."

Yeah, it's kind of an inherent contradiction to the message's perceived tone; The only thing ominous about the original Persian Simurgh myth is her very very large size. She's also considered to be definitively female, and benign.

Maybe the size issue is why they're saying "You must create rest" ?

I was also thinking that the simurgh (if I'm allowed to borrow the fish comparison that the comic made earlier) is a lot closer to a whale than something that's actually malevolent.

I imagine that many things that aren't food for a Baleen whale get caught in the crossfire when it filter feeds, which could be part of the reason why the simurgh rumors always mention that it destroys/consumes/takes anything in the vicinity when it does show up.

It could also explain why survivors don't really know what it looks like, as it's pretty hard to get a good look at something when you are roughly half the size of it's eye, and its moving very quickly

It could be a Thunderbird, a Roc, or something just as big if you think about it.

Those things are said to blot out the sun. And the shape didn't look like a Whale to me. But we know that's what tore open the airplane. But the question is how and why didn't Shanti's Gryphside friend not see it? That's what I want to know. And I wonder if Shanti will get her phone back and if the Spaceside did anything to it to make it better.

This comic is absolutely amazing! I just got caught up last week, and I am absolutely hooked :)

The Simurgh is the creature that devoures everything, mentioned in arc 1 page 61? That... doesn't sound very good.

Oh damn, I can't believe I didn't notice this. Nope I don't wanna see the Simurgh nah xD She certainly does not sound good nope. Hope she doesn't hurt anyone, I'm not ready for the feels! xD
Fitana (Guest) edit delete reply
Wait whaat? They can chat? xD I didn't see that coming!

And OMG I was re-reading "Simurgh???" over and over thinking what it is until I had a sudden realization that it's from MY language like, !!! aaaahhh!!?
oohhh ohmanohman I'm so exited now! and ya know because when I started reading this comic, I couldn't really find a name in my language for, for example Gryphside. and I used to refer to them in the back of my head as, like "those creatures looking like Simurgh" hehe xD

Hope to see this Simurgh soon.
Looking forward to whatever you plan with it, good role or not! ;)
Fitana (Guest) edit delete reply
Nope I take it back, I don't want Simurgh. oh God! xD (Sorry I've been so blind I didn't remember she was mentioned before, and she might be the reason of Shanti's plane crush!)
Fitana (Guest) edit delete reply
But still, we're not a hundred percent sure those things they said about her were right. Might just be rumors. I mean they weren't even sure if she's real ,right?
Guess we just have to wait and see ^v^

This was the first page I saw of your comic, and I irrationally thought it was Page 1, so I read through it and it creeped me out so much. But now it just seems funny. All these spaceside so marvelously fascinated by this little piece of technology, fawning over it and fighting over it like five-year-olds. It's so charming! And now that they've finally figured out how to text, the first thing they do is spam someone! I mean, it's terrifying spam, but still, spaceside is just a species of precious little wonderful weirdos. Their language seems decipherable... I wonder what we'd find out if we could read their dialogue.
