Continued from last week!
UPDATE: Here I am thinking the “four elements” were universal. I was just schooled on the traditional Chinese five elements of fire, water, earth, wood, and metal, which would be a more obvious choice for Daiyu to reference! Had I known I would have had to scrap the joke (with a touch of seriousness… I mean, fire breathing ducks=Certain DOOM) so I’ll just pretend Daiyu was schooled someplace where they were all about the fire, air, water and earth. You should too!
Either you get this one or you don't.

You know, I put these reference comics below the strip now for handy reminders of where youve seen things before or to enhance a flashback or just because. Sometimes there is strong plot-related significance, other times, its like hey thats neat! This is probably neither but I didnt want anyone to feel they needed to reread all of Oceans Unmoving (unless they really want to) when I go ref: Caribs. Nuff said.
This is technically half a comic. I realized I couldn't pull off all 6 rows and have the comic up by dawn so I had to split it right down the middle. You guys will see a legible timeline and some clarity tomorrow!

BTW today's comic is the ONE panel that I was supposed to finish yesterday's comic with. And I barely finished it in time. Almost two full days on this one. Clearly I have time-estimation issues.
