The blood thickens...

The blood thickens...
I polished and pondered.
This isn't how it's supposed to go!
It was all topsy-turvy! While the elf was asleep, the master of the house snuck into the empty building to create work for her.
I staid up during the day, hiding in the stables, staring at the block.
By this time, I was out of food. I went out into the forest, picking food and setting traps.
When I came back, the axe was still clean, but there was a note pinned to it. "Elf, Do not leave your post again. Signed, Grene".

I realize this page is eleven years old, but do you have any interest in spelling corrections?

Depends on what they are, I guess. Right now, I don't see any issues, but it's early morning and I'm not awake yet.

Okay. In panel 3, "staid" should be "stayed." "Staid" is an adjective meaning "settled, quiet, sober, lacking in excitement."

I confess I'm not clear on whether you're simply reposting these strips, or redrawing them as well, so I don't know whether it's worth your effort to correct spelling at this stage.

"Staid" is a preference that is not going away, I'm afraid. I don't have many spelling quirks, but this is one.

If I was redrawing these comics, they'd look a whole lot better and I'd be a whole lot poorer.
