Dina from David Willis's Dumbing of Age ( [link] )

Making Dina an immortal from Highlander inspired by David Willis's Tumblr: [link]

For anyone unfamiliar with Highlander, immortals kill other immortals by chopping off their heads. Then things get all zappy for a bit in what they call "the Quickening", which is also apparently what it's called in for realsies life when a pregnant woman can first feel their baby moving. Nifty.

Thanks for combining two of my favorite characters/stories, Dina from Dumbing of Age, and Highlander: The Search For Vengeance (2007 remake).

Huh, so who's the poor sod she decapitated...

And I was never clear just what kind of power an immortal would gain from the quickening, I mean did they get... more immortal?

Replying to over 2 years old comment since 2014*

Because I've watched most of the series and the movies, allow me to lighten your knowledge dear Leviadragon99.

When an immortal strike another immortal down. They basically gain the life force of the stricken foe. It's not so much more immortality. As it is things like their skills, knowledge, know-how etc. That you garner from their life. I'm not clear if the victor also gain some of their memories or not. After all, it's been a couple years since then and I was a rather young gal with not so much attention for the more minute details of such shows. But yes. It's why the immortals that were around for longer, and not just hiding, but fighting all the time, like McCleoud were such strong fighters. They had their own honed fighting ability, plus all the skills and ability taken from the foes they faced in the past.

All that winded up answer, to basically say. That the quickening was the transfer of life force from the downed to the victor. And not like... more immortality

wait... David has a new comic, and it's recycling characters from It's Walky? Why wasn't I told!?!?! Awesome news!

And props for the awesome Highlander reference! It seems like I just get blank stares when I mention it...
