Let's hope he actually takes that advice - he comes on way too strong.

I get the impression Lynda is Talbot's first crush.

Correct. Other than his mom, Talbot's never even seen a shewolf before.

Hey Peter, a weird question (my mind is an odd place): what would the 'wolves to with a human that was, well, "left" for them.

In this case, some criminal ties them up and leaves them somewhere in the general vicinity of Wolverton assuming that wild animals would maul the person.

Other interesting scenarios in my brain are abandoned babies and lost children/people. With the latter I assume they'd turn human to help them find their way back. Abandoned babies, however, could be trickier.

Well, it's never going to come up, I can tell you that. With the exceptions of Jon and Grandparents/Archibald who are integral to the storylines developed for Floyd and Gavin respectively (and one other scene I'd like to with somewolf else), I'm not doing anything with humans.

I seriously hope your scenarios wouldn't actually be done by anyone (yes, they probably have been or could be) in the first place. But I suppose it's as you speculate. They'd help, then wash their paws of it with the good deed done. They'd leave the baby with authorities in town, for instance, not track down the parents or find foster parents themselves. And no, they would absolutely not "take it in" and make it a werewolf. That's against the Code of Conduct.

I wasn't expecting it to, like I said, my brain goes weird places sometimes.

I've seen one too many of those old serials where the villain will tie up or leave a character to their doom only for something to save them at the last minute, which is where that first bit of weirdness comes from.

For the others, getting lost does happen sometimes, and I'm sure they'd want to help someone find their way back home. I wasn't even thinking the last since you've expressed that before, though it'd be a bit more interesting in the case of a kid abandoned because they're going to turn into a werewolf (on a certain birthday due to being a seventh son or some similar thing).

Hmmm... Y'know? Outta all the wolf idioms Talbot could have come up with, he came up with the one that seemed the most normal. But that's what I like about this comic is that the wolves are just other people, just a bit fuzzier, so they don't necessarily need special idioms and the like.

Lol Talbot crushing hard like a teen in high school. Love Talbot's shirt. Is that supposed to be Riqurélio's ship?

That's the idea. :D They do use 'special idioms', though such as saying "Aw wolf" instead of "Aw man". Gotta have SOME fun. :)
Yes, that's the Baía da Lua on his shirt.
