Fables No. 4

It is Remembrance Day. A day when the Fables remember that they are exiles from their lands, driven off by the heretofore mysterious Adversary.

Thankfully, Beast has returned to human form.

I pity Beast, I do. I mean, what if your human looks depended on whether your wife or girlfriend loved you. Holy shit. Admit it, you and I will be be living in the Farm with the non-human Fables. Hahaha.

So they have this lottery, this year the prize is Prince Charming's lands back in the old country. Anyway, Beast is not making it easy for him to remain human. Just keep agreeing with your wife you fool - in your case it's agreeing to remain human.

During Remembrance Day they have what they call the 'Sacred Reading'. Let's visit some of the more interesting parts of this reading. Here we are shown the invasion of the Homelands.

On the one hand it's a bit insulting. On the other hand, I wouldn't invade this mess of a world we live in either.

And Remembrance Day is celebrated not just in the Woodlands but everywhere Fables live.

Let's not forget the non-human Fables.
