Jillian and Vinny's reaction to Ansom's death. "Hey, you're the only one grievin' right now, right? Right?! IZZAT WHAT YOU THINK?"
This◊ is either one, or narrowly avoids it by virtue of snarky hamster.
The story of Wrigley, Stabber of Unaroyal. He was born into a world devoted to war, with the sole purpose of fighting in that war. Yet, he never got the chance to serve in combat, living a mind-numbingly dull life. When the city he is in finally does come under attack, the enemy so outclassed the defenders that it was like he wasn't even there. And so he sits chained in the mud, waiting for his execution and the only thing he can bring himself to wish for is to know what happened to his spear.
Stanley isn't what you call a nice guy and he isn't the most mature, but he's smarter than he looks. It's a little odd to see him doubt Wanda and, a little sad, when he starts telling himself◊ that Wanda didn't try to set him up and get him killed in the attack on Faq. Of course, the audience knows that she did try to get him killed and she really doesn't give a rat's ass about him at all. She's just interested in his attunement. Given what he was saying in previous strips, it's obviously been bugging him for a long while.
The journal entry of Trammenis aka King Trammenis the Reluctant. He's filled with self doubt regarding his worthiness to the throne which is not helping the fact that he is currently Jetstone's Only Sane Man.
Trammenis: I must be brave. But first I must find a Chief Warlord who will agree with me. And how can I do that, when I lack the bravery even to turn a few pages and read what my father wrote of me?
Parson straight up asks Sizemore what's wrong, and gets an answer. Parson hasn't just forced Sizemore to kill, he's completely ruined his life. Sizemore used to be everybody's friend in the Magic Kingdom, loved by everyone he met. Since Parson turned Gobwin Knob into the most feared side on Erf, everybody hates Sizemore now. And then Parson went and brought the war to the Magic Kingdom, destroying the only place Sizemore ever felt safe, forever.
Sizemore: I was Qualified, you know that? Everyone here was my friend. Now I'm nothing. It's over.
Tommy Firebaugh's sudden death would have been heartbreaking for Wanda, but the kicker is that she knew before anyone else because of her croakamancy senses, which she took great pride in.
