Runaway to the Stars: Page 39 and 40

Morning in Shikaviil Port! I get bored drawing big landscapes and hide Easter eggs to amuse myself. There's a rat in here. Somewhere. Good luck.

Transcript It's 09:00. The view of the habitat dome zooms out, with small comics appearing connected to their location in the dome with a tail.
Gillie pokes her wife Idrisah, who is tucked into bed, in the face several dozen times. Idrisah shifts in bed and signs, eyes still closed.
Idrisah: (ASL) 5 more minutes....
Mel scrolls through their phone contacts while brushing their teeth, stopping at Ohwitiil. Meanwhile, in a different apartment, Ohwitiil is filing down their upper bill. In yet another apartment, Cheevwut is asleep.
SFX: BEEDLE BEEDLE BEEDLE BEEDLE BEEDLE
Talita's alarm goes off on her bedside desk. After a while, she props her head up with her eyes closed, wobbling with drowsiness and mane feathers rumpled into an unflattering lumpy profile.

  1. If centaurs breathe in through their heads and out by their torsos… is morning breath a non-issue, since they exhale away from where others inhale? Plus, their speech airway is discrete from their digestive tract…
    So, are they morning breath immune?

    1. Their mouths can still stink from bacterial buildup but they aren’t blowing the smell out with air. So maybe it’s less obvious.

  2. oh my comment got deleted! my theory must have some truth after all lol. i won’t say it again but I would like to let you know I’m really looking forward to how the story will play out, you’re work is incredible!

    1. I don’t delete comments. Maybe the site glitched??

  3. Seven Foot Rat, Rats Along His Rats.

  4. just-woke-up talita is sending me. She looks like that picture of an owl that got caught in the rain.
    I have grown to love Cheev even more because of their awful room.

  5. I know shes like 30 but Talia’s got extreme “Teenager who just woke up” Vibes. Same hat, girl. Same hat.

  6. I don’t know why but this is one of my favorite pages.

    Guess I just love seeing characters going about their mundane every day lives like this XD Feels like a nice bit of worldbuilding I guess

  7. “Wobble” is the perfect word for how my moving bits move right after arising.

  8. He makes all of the rules.

  9. Dang, that a big rat!

  10. Is that some kind of Avian sleeping donut? It looks cozy as fuck.

  11. The rat may have a lot to do with why people are leaving…
    Talita clearly doesn’t do mornings.

  12. the giant rat that makes all the rules

  13. On of the most relatable double pages in comic history if you ask me.

    1. Eepy talita looks like a muppet. Love her so much

  14. That is some really finely captured “ugh something is ringing” just woken up. I’ve been getting a lot of spam calls lately waking ME up, so I really feel the mood right now.

    1. Mood. I have to keep the ringer on my phone active due to parents in ill health, and the morning spammers and robo-callers make me fume.

  15. the RAT

  16. Talita looking especially muppet this morning!

  17. Guestie McGuestor

    Found the rat! Hahaha! Awesome! I’d judge Cheevwut more…except the clutter doesn’t bug me (save the food containers).

  18. Found the rat!!!!

  19. Found the rat as soon as I zoomed in! Idrisah is such a mood. Cheevwut is sometimes also a mood, on my bad days.

  20. A very “cat” way to wake someone, in my experience …

  21. Cheev, NO….

    1. Nothing like the risk of spilling stale avian cereal and milk all over your phone and live electrical wires every time you get out of your nest. Makes the morning more exciting.

  22. Oh wow Cheevwut is such a disaster

    1. Ha! Thank you for making me zoom in on that panel more closely.

  23. I like Talita’s contact picture

    1. Mel insisted they take her picture for it.

  24. The eepy page

  25. rat detected

    1. Rasheed might have more to worry about than just the spider mites!

      1. RAT RAT RAT

  26. average eid al-fitr morning experience

  27. ah found the rat, it is in the least, LEAST!!!! expected place, that is amazing, now that I know where it is it’s obvious but oh before that, absolutely invisible
    I don’t know how to mark spoilers in this comment section, or if I even can, I shan’t spoil it for y’all

    1. oh it really is. who put that rat there i’m scared

    2. i will interpret any future drawing of this area which does not include the rat as noncanonical

  28. Incredible Talita “just woke up” face
