Who remembers the Frost Queen? From wayyy back. (More later on Shiarra!)
See her only reference thus far (from 11/23/09) here: http://legendofbill.com/2009/11/23/prophecy/
Next Episode: Thursday! BE HERE!
The Frost Queen is pretty hot…..
… but she’s also cold as ice.
This is where someone who isn’t working at their day job would have the time to find a YouTube link for Foreigner’s song “Cold as Ice”
I’m right there with you Don!
Damn link didn’t work. Try this …
oh boy, this wont end well for him
key.. oh noes its the frost queen run for you lives.,
No worries … she is the enemy of the enemy. For the moment, at least, a powerful “friend.” Remains to be seen where her actual alignments tend, but I’m kinda hoping she turns out to be a Galadrial of the North.
But, she is one of the heavy-hitters in this world, Vasheeva’s godmother if I recall that correctly. Been around for quite a while. It is to be noted that the Dark Underlord hasn’t taken her out yet over many, many years … meaning even he is 1) afraid to try &/or 2) has tried and failed. Think about that for a few moments.
And old Diplomacy (da boardgame!) adagio says: The enemy of the enemy of my enemy is… my enemy.
Not sure if it ever got so complicated yet in Bill’s story but it probably did – I’m certainly a bit confused by now and hope that the hot-cold Frost Queen will eventually explain us something (if she just does the belly dance I’ll be happy too).
Soooo Coooooooool!….Get it COOL? awesome as always guys!
When did she last make an appearance?
Really curious how this will tie in to the story… I mean Craven is not even what he seems!
Ok, so I get why Vasheeva and Gina are scantily clad as they are from some warmer regions, but why Shiarra? Wouldn’t she wear something a little furrier? *shrugs*
Maybe I should just shut up, sit back and enjoy the view.
Naah, that’s what those tattoos are for… +60F or comfortable temperature
I would also guess magic tattoos.
Cold and hot are just relative terms. Asking someone in southern Florida what cold weather is and asking someone in Northern Canada what cold weather is, will get you two completely different answers.
Besides, she wouldn’t be nearly as sexy looking wrapped up in heavy clothes with just her face peeking out of a parka, so yes Tim, SHHH!!
Yep. Despite the wheeze in the media about how warm it is, for 3 straight years, the Pacific NW has not had it’s usual spring weather by about 20 degrees. Brrrrrrr. Been hard on farmer’s crops and people’s gardens. When I was a kid, it was normal to have sun and 50s to 70s during this period on the high desert. It’s been 20s at night and 30s, 40s and 50s for the most part during the day. Even into July. This year we’ve had exactly 3 days where it got to 60.
So, why would a presumably evil “Frost Queen” want to help our G-nome?
As Robert Heinlein would rightly retort, ‘taint so. Such a woman would be just as much a traffic-stopper if dressed for the weather as otherwise, just in a different way.
Heinlein’s particular attitudes aside, many women (and most men), including some cartoonists (ahem), have forgotten the incredible power of “modest but alluring” dress.
Leaving all that aside, this is a vast improvement over the Butch Scottish Fae look.
As a Central Floridian I can attest to this!
Aww man, I was enjoying the tiny flying punk.
Any one remember the “my god-mother Shiara” comment?
Shiarra was mentioned even before that:
But I had to use the WayBack machine to find it.
As much as I was enjoying the introduction of a new character … I have been soooo waiting for Shiarra to turn up! Spends her time hanging out in taverns impersonating snorkel fairies, huh? I feel like I just got a surprise birthday present!
Thank you, David! Looks like she has a strong, direct blood relationship with Vasheeva. And very similar taste in clothing.
Although, I think it would have been a good bit of a practical joke not to have revealed her name immediately … would have sorted out the old timers from the n00bz here. Quick! To the archives, all you newbies!
3X, I’m so glad to hear that. Thank you all! Wait ’til you see what she can do. Oh, yes. It’s ON!
That plot twist practically took everybody’s heads off, David. Will be interesting indeed to see what she can do. Is “modest but alluring” one of those things (see above rant in reply to Don)?
OMG!! That’s crazy… hanging out in a tavern disguised as an ale-snorkeling fairy??
I can see where her goddaughter gets her fashion sense from…
But how does she know Giles’s name?
Not to mention: What the…?!?
Maybe Vera Vansova can play her in the movie?
A slight resemblance…
I messed up; here is the full-sized image:
I concur. There are definite similarities.
Wow. That wasn’t a twist I was expected.
Μr J likes!
Ha! We already knew Shiarra was Vasheeva’s godmother, just not her fairy godmother. It’s obvious in hindsight, isn’t it? ^^ And a fairy of ice and frost would not suffer from the cold, which explains the clothing; outside her native environment, she must be getting a bit hot under the collar.
Not surprising at all, *I* knew it was going to be Shiarra all along!
errrr, i mean WOOW!!!!
Twelve is going to get iced and put in a tray with eleven other cubes? (Couldn’t resist those bad puns.)
Frank will breathe fire and melt the Queen?
I’d guess some major story details are about to be revealed…
Sorry to be tardy to the party! *refreshes everyone’s everything!*
A female version of Thrymr has arrived. Can Surtr/Sinmoera be far behind?
So that ale she was having a bath in should be ice cold by now.
