I like the implication that HP stayed with Undine until they kicked her out.

I wonder if Momdine will be excited for her to have a partner, only for Undine to be all, "It's not like that."

I wonder how close they are if Momdine is surprised that Undine's hanging out with another magical girl.

I'll more curious about how she feels about Undine still being active so soon after everything. She clearly aware of it.

This is also the first we've seen of any of Undine's issues getting adult acknowledgement outside of Mark.

Well, we're also not sure how much magical girls tell their parents about their doings after dark in general.

Undine: What is 'updog'?

The alt text immediately reminded me of this Game Grumps moment.

Seeing how this setting uses Roman numerals always puts me in mind of the Safehold series by David Weber. The main character, going by the name Merlin, is in a Giving Radio to the Romans situation at there's a scene in the first book of him showing off Arabic numerals (0-9) to the Crown Prince, which is later stated to have revolutionized mathematics (which was the point, as the use of Roman numerals was part of enforcing a Medieval Stasis on Safehold).

That mental image of Kokoro constantly looking back at the nurse for artistic reference [lol]

Also so many good Undine expressions in the span of this one page.

I wonder if the reporters just heard about the rescue or if word of "Heartful Wave/Water Punch" has gotten out.

Rewinding a bit, I guess HP's letter means she's going to talk about why she works alone instead of in a group.

sgamer82 from Meridian, ID

I'm thinking the same. There's been a lot of little hints that suggest that Heartful Punch has got something in her past that helps her to be the single most empathetic person to Undine's issues even if, by her own admission, it's not on Undine's level.

She's said she fights solo because, scary as it is, some things scare her more, something Undine's influence causes her to later regard as its own kind of cowardice. She's noticably zoned out when the girls discuss their Dreams, and she had a similar moment when Claire and Undine talked about Magical Girl heredity.

She has a more personal understanding of what Undine is experiencing than she's let on, and we may be about to find out why.

Edit: I just realized you can see the change of clothes and HP's note in the comic where the Woman in White crushes Undine's bad dreams.

Tessa is so out of the loop on like everything that's happened since The Incident.

Just binged through this comic! I totally love it. Haven't seen any fandom stuff, so I guess I'll share the theory I came up with here: since Tessa's powers are what's keeping Undine alive, when she gets old enough to lose her powers Undine will die. Hence Goops' assertion that Undine is already dead, and the mentions of an "unsustainable situation."

If you want fandom stuff, there's an SD discord channel at https://discord.gg/t2h7mGU

For the theory that assumed what Tessa did is the only thing keeping her alive. If she's healed since Undine may be fine down the road. Still, it could make for a good twist if you're right.

I always took what Goops said as meaning Undine was "dead inside".

The other day I was in the SD Discord and the conversation that struck up caught my attention. Apparently Mary Cagle finds it surprising that people refer to the Woman in White as the Woman in White, as opposed to an alternate name, the Girl in the Dream.

Out of curiosity, I went back to the pages where Undine dreams her and I thought I'd remembered her being noticeably taller than Undine, possibly remembering the center-left panel in the first page, but the height difference isn't all that much.

I think the general theory is the Woman in White is the city Founder and/or source of Magical Girl powers, but do you think she might actually be the Girl in White?

Also, given her speech bubble colors and how long she's likely to have been around, would it be out of line to call her a The Golden Girl?

Well, The Woman in White is an excellent book (even if the male lead is boring and chooses the wrong love interest), so she should take that as a compliment!

The fact that the author has drawn attention to that is suspicious, though. Maybe she was the first magical girl?

sgamer82 from Meridian, ID

That's been my assumption, given how closely tied she clearly is to magical girls in general and the mention Vedika once made that the dreams are theorized to be a form of contact by the Founder, and the apparent fact that every magical girl seems to have forgotten meeting her.

It would be interesting if the fact that all magical girls are teenagers wasn't because of manipulation, like Mark thinks, but naivete. She died/ascended while still a girl, still carrying the attitude that Adults Are Useless, so she gives all the power and responsibility to kids.

I like that. Personally I was just thinking maybe she was a Magical Girl otaku pre-Cataclysm or something.

More seriously, Tessa's having another "I don't know how I feel about this" moment
