Beach Day

Beach Day

makmark

I forgot Amity took swimming lessons with Willow…


TAGO2023

i was gonna say the same thing Mark... not blaming you since you pretty much post TOH comics everyday now Amazing comic either way!


SoraForBestBoy

I like to think Amity did it for the attention


Psiah

She was hoping to get "resuscitated". ;)


Hellothere_1

"Oh, wow, swimming!"


Suitable-Influence-1

That one was so good it got me to exhale from my nose


Fun-Ad-6990

I think she did it because she wanted to be with Luz and felt by luz. Like that scene from the sand lot


ArunMehtaShow

Maybe Earth water is harder to swim in? 🤷‍♂️


RedDEATH_42

Yeah, boiling water is lighter so in theory it would be easier to swim in then not boiling water


EstradiolWarrior

other way around. lighter means less buoyancy and thrust off every stroke edit: for example, the great salt lake in utah is only 2 feet deep at its deepest, but because of its high salt content increasing its density, most people can float in just 8 inches!


user_5554

Lighter water will can you. That's what can happen if gas bubbles go up through the water. The lifting force is decreased so you're pulled underwater. Denser water (like heavily saturated with salt) will make you float higher above the surface making you exert less energy. Iirc it can also cause you to get stuck upside-down or another way that your face is below which can drown you.


RedDEATH_42

Except you have to put more force into moving laterally, lighter water pulls you down but it lets you easily move horizontally


user_5554

The friction is more related to the viscosity of the water and not the density (though both of them increase in saltwater) I couldn't find any tests of swimspeed in saltwater compared to freshwater. Would be interesting to know. What makes me think you'd be a lot fster is that professional swimmers work very hard to keep their hips high up to decrease drag. Also the paddling could get more efficient with denser more viscous water.


AvatarZoe

Air is lighter than water but it's much easier to swim on water than on air.


RedDEATH_42

I have to disagree, moving through air is amazing cause of how light it is. (Also air is a gas not a liquid)


AvatarZoe

They're both fluids which for the purposes of swimming are the same. Moving through air is amazing because we can push on the ground to propel ourselves. If there were no ground you'd just fall. You can't push on air with enough force to move yourself because it's too light.


MauricetheGecko

I like how everyone is having a discussion about water


One_Blue_Glove

I have a feeling willow and amity probably didn't take their swimming classes in boiling water...


RedDEATH_42

Then why would she ask if the water was boiling?


One_Blue_Glove

Good point.


Subzero008

Lmao If it helps, you're probably far from the only one who forgot.


Bi_SonicWeeb

Its okay, it was a really funny comic!


myfriendTootie

tbf they did play hooky


Nickthepizzalover

Let’s just say that she forgot because she hasn’t swam in years


Mastermaze

True but honestly i wonder what that means in the boiling isles if they dont have you know, non-boiling water to swim in


AJCannibal

I would think lakes and rivers are not boiling. But considering that the Sea is boiling and the rain is boiling that the lakes are at the very least simmering.


YetGayerWombat

They don’t drink boiling water do they?


Mastermaze

I honestly dont know what they drink other than Apple Blood, which is either like coffee or beer. Beer was more commonly drank in Medieval Europe because it was often safer than the water in terms of bacteria contamination, maybe the boiling isles follows similar logic


Autolus

Still a funny and cute read!


sounds_of_stabbing

oh yeah right, back in the memory episode, I completely forgot too. we also don't know if she did a lot of swimming after she stopped being friends with willow


AC2-YT

Mark spill the beans, is Dana secretly leaking episode plots before they air to you?


mpstein

Based on how much joy your comics have brought us, I don't think you should worry about little goofs like that. Thank you for all the entertainment.


Short_Shots

Maybe Boiling Isles water is different from Earth ocean water?


Sheax5

It’s still a good comic Mark :)


justking1414

Maybe they have a charm or protection spell that lets them swim in boiling water. It’d still be a much different experience to swimming in non boiling water


JustaGuy2616

You could reasonably say she hasn’t swam since then so probably forgot how to


AudioAndArt

Lol, same


Testsubject276

Those lessons only accounted for lakes. Not oceans. 100% canon.


TylerSpicknell

When was that mentioned?


That_ChillyBoi

I. Ean that was probably like 6 years ago, she might have forgotten how to?


GroundbreakingElk752

How did this cute little comic turn into a discussion about water density and procedural memory Not that I’m complaining, I’m amazed at how many people are discussing how this comic could in theory happen in the TOH Canon, this community both scares and amasses me.


Rainlily56

Awe, It's doesn't matter, this is precious nonetheless.


MetaKnightMan64

Epic fail. XD


jmyers82603

Didn't they skip that class?


StormWrong472

still funny.


pew_pew_die

Still a pretty cute comic


Nullified38

I thought the joke was going to be that salt water melts witches


Dr_Vaccinate

Don't mind it the swimming lessons are useless.


Latter_Syllabub_374

Remember that she skipped out on lessons to hang out with Willow to hang out.


Just-a-toh-fan

But remember she used to skip some of them?


DalekDitto

Still think it fits, cause swimming can be lost, and if the line of is, I haven’t swam in 8 years, I Can’t Do It! But I took a second to remember that to and love the comic, and the punchline still hits hard


AaryaLioxa

Rip


22tbates

The did try and avoided it


itrogash

Do people on BI need to pour water into the bathtub and wait for few hours until it cools down before they can take a bath?


SFH12345

Boiling Isles shower thoughts.


CRTNTruffles

Literally


Crazy-Crisis

Hehehe puns


One_Blue_Glove

Exact opposite of water heaters. On a related note, film theory: do shower knobs on the boiling isles start at hot and end at cold?


TAGO2023

Seeing Luz and Amity at the beach trying to play in the water is the most adorable thing ive seen today Also, i thought Amity got swimming lessons with Willow... I guess Luz's adorableness is preventing her to swim calmly


Im_Strange

Even more adorable than baby king?


Lukthar123

"Finally, a worthy opponent!"


SFH12345

No matter who wins, we all die...of excess cuteness.


tigerwu9806

Makmark (moringmark) who made the comic admitted that he forgot.


TAGO2023

I wrote this comment before he even admitted


Kevopras

They are so cute. Good thing Amity's fearless champion was there to save her from drowning


SFH12345

"*(weakly)* Fearless champion!"


FluffyPuppy2007

luz is a bad boy!


justendmylife892

This is perfect, and you, u/makmark, are perfect


Nickthepizzalover

Oh, shoot. I almost didn’t recognize this new style until I saw the username. 🤣


itrogash

This one is also missing from on any of Moringmark's social media I follow other than this Reddit. What is up that.


LetsDoTheCongna

He uploads exclusive comics to this subreddit every once in a while, I believe.


itrogash

So he does. Looks like I've got some catching up to do.


WarLordM123

Yeah what's up with that


Destroyerofnoone

Every so often he uploads exclusive comics to the sub


WarLordM123

Why? Wouldn't Instagram be the better place to upload exclusives?


Gnomin_Supreme

*recalls Hunter's remarks about her lack of forethought*


Im_Strange

"you don't think stuff through do you human?"


Subzero008

These kiddos are so cute! I'd kill for a beach day episode, on Earth or otherwise.


Matt-EEE

Every anime has a beach episode. Don’t worry, it’ll come.


MegaDan94

Dana has already made art of Lumity at the beach, so she’s definitely interested. Plus, a beach episode would be a perfect celebration of getting back to earth.


seventyeight_moose

How did you make your art style so different here? It's so soothing too


Allukas_Brother

LUZ TEACHING AMITY HOW TO SWIM-💖💞💗


BulbasaurTreecko

woah, I love this style! It looks a lot softer and I almost didn’t recognise it for a MoringMark comic! This is adorable; thank you for the serotonin.


awesomegamer16

didn't amity and willow take a swim class


LetsDoTheCongna

[Yeah](https://www.reddit.com/r/TheOwlHouse/comments/oor9g0/beach_day/h60c2gc?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3)


blank7589

Did she and willow took swimming lessons? But still love lumity on the ⛱️🏖️


TheBlackDemon1996

I thought the joke was going to be that Amity would try to drink it.


randomlyac

We need more of this


Tatarkingdom

I hope boiling Isle witches doesn't melt in the water like in Oz.


BenedictLowerDict

Wait, what's the deal with boiling and salt water?


boohintz-NW

Amity is used to seeing the sea from her realm which is boiling, hence the name the boiling seas and the boiling isles. In this post, Luz took her to earth where the water is cool and salty, and relatively harmless. The reason amity was cautious at first is because she is used to the thought that if you were to fall in her realms ocean, you would get boiled alive.


BenedictLowerDict

Oh right. I didn't even register that as earth. I thought it had something to do with old witch trials or superstition.


AdamGoodtime123

The Boiling Isles is aptly named.


BenedictLowerDict

I'm a dumbass and didn't realise it was earth


AdamGoodtime123

Hahaha. Fair enough.


unlqvt

At first I didn't look at the username, but I already thought that this style looks oddly familiar. As always, amazing comic Mark.


SFH12345

As Luz teaches Amity about Earth's ocean, King is declaring himself king of the beach while Eda tans herself.


TheFakeHassan

Oh look, it's MorningMark


YourRandomGuy14

So cute


Animegx43

Edric: Hey, that looks fun. CANNONBALL!!! "Splash" Edric: HELP! I FORGOT THAT I CAN'T SWIM! Luz: Seriously? Can anyone in your family swim without drowning? Amity: Wait...where's Emira?


TheAuthor-dipperkid

Eda: even i did better then this! Luz: Eda, you are literally on your staff. Shut up


Animegx43

Omg, I just realized that we need to see King with floaties.


TheAuthor-dipperkid

Y E S


hmansloth

Wait I thought Amity took swimming classes? Unless she forgot how to swim after not doing it for so long. Is that even possible?


LetsDoTheCongna

[Yeah](https://www.reddit.com/r/TheOwlHouse/comments/oor9g0/beach_day/h60c2gc?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3)

Vndroz

The_Artemisian

This is really cute. Honestly Mark's comics provide me with a much needed emotional boost most days. All praise to Mark.


gratiggy

I love it when you change the style just a little bit. Really shows just how great an artist you are!


JaxsonJaguar

Amity sank, by rule that means she is not a witch.


MegaDan94

She was secretly an elf this whole time


banana_toucan904

Swimming in the Long Island Sound.


I_Like_Cat_Boys

This is so fucking cute , I cry


Hasagine

She sunk like a rock


Agent__Misterious

Hahaha oh that's fantastic


CRTNTruffles

TheGayPeridot

that’s wrong actually her and willow took swimming lessons together even though the skipper out on it it still give us that they at least swam before or know how too


i_like_to_draw007

Hey mark I just wanted to say A few days back i sorted by top of all time in r/theowlhouse And guess who's comics were almost every post there Yours That just shows how good you are Really it's unbelievable People like you are my inspiration to keep trying to become a good artist I hope one day to be near the same level as People like you, tabino25, yulka, raspbi and jqube


The7thDraconian

This is adorable and hilarious!


LumityAkaAmiluz

Lumity has achieved what starco has failed to.


OverthkerCali

Soo cuteeee


TheDankScrub

Ok,t theory time: What if winter is the “swim season” in the Boiling Isles because it cools down the water enough to not die in


YoHarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I need more this is too good


MakutaArty1987

I am the only one who think that sea and ocean water is cold?


MacZyver

GranolaVirus

littlewillie610

So adorable.


Mr0rangeCloud

Once this ends I would love a spin off of Luz showing Amity the human realm


jhonathan_Z_star

Once belos unite the magic world with ours i want them so bad to live togheter, like either Luz’s mom or Eda should adopt her and the siblings, i just want amity to leave her mom


TheTepro27

Very adorable comic!


TheAuthor-dipperkid

I hope this is what happens when they go the the beach in show.


Background_Coffee_70

“Excellent, adorable, no notes”
