i never thought i'd see the day when I got warm fuzzy feelings due to Alador and Odalia...


Lukthar123

To be fair, awkward hands-on nerd x career-oriented, professional witch? Alador x Odalia sounds like OG Lumity


SFH12345

All this time we assumed Raeda was the Lumity of their generation, but it was actually Odalador.


MGD109

Huh, I never thought of that but they do make a pretty good shadow counterpart don't they?


Willow_Park01

please... stop... this is hurting my soul...


[deleted]

Except they grow up to be abusive shits


EleiteRanger

Evil Lumity


drizztstorm

How much you wanna bet we get an episode that shows us why Odalia did what she did, and it is honestly a good reason. Doesn't excuse what she did, but was still a good reason.


[deleted]

I'll give you ten thousand bucks if that actually turns out true.


Torture-Dancer

Except amity is nice and Luz doesn’t look like Belos sucked the soul out of her body


RequiemZero

Not yet she doesn’t


feistyfox101

Alador is a working man with 3 kids and little sleep. I think it’s more life doing the soul sucking than anyone else. He seems to be the only person Odalia respects because she wants to respect him.

teredacted79

Origin stories are great, canon until proven otherwise.


Mornar

All MoringMark comics are canon until proven otherwise and I am willing to fight people over this.


teredacted79

I agree 510 percent


SFH12345

The mantra of not only r/TheOwlHouse, but also r/gravityfalls and r/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil.


GrossM15

"Now tell me human. Where do you think you are?"


AlexisTimeBoyWells

... maybe leave that one as 'extra canonical' or 'alternate universe' until proven otherwise, eh?


Thannk

Canon in the sense that her mother has it as a nightmare?


Planem1

*becomes Canon


SFH12345

There is some love in Odalia, just buried deep down. Deep, deep, *deep* down.


Rigidsttructure

So deep, it's near the planetary core.


Jack-of-all-trade4

It *is* the core


Lukthar123

Only Alador can reach it, with the right equipment..


Luhood

*"Equipment"*

poppymeow11

You forgot about 67 deeps mate


SFH12345

I had assumed 97 deeps, actually.


TheAkloaf

Like REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY DEEP


Meenero777

I think it's so deep that isnt actually in her


Treemaster099

She took the love out and put it in her necklace like a horcrux


SFH12345

Season 2B features Amity and Luz going on a quest to find the horcrux and put the love back in Odalia.


GORUDOEXUPERENCU

She buried the love deep within


AmitRozYT

The deepest a being can ever get into


DrManowar8

I honestly hope she gets a redemption arc. She has potential to be a good character


FedoraFerret

I kinda hope she doesn't. Redemption arcs are all well and good but sometimes you do need character's who exist just to be hated, and narcissist mothers are very fun to hate.


DrManowar8

We have kikimora


Sky-is-here

Consider this, two characters that are made to be hated


DrManowar8

I mean we have boscha also Bria. To a lesser extent King’s father (he’ll likely get redemption, we still haven’t seen much of him). Also belos but he gets a pass for being the primary antagonist


CedarWolf

King's Father seems really nice so far, from what little we've seen of him.


DrManowar8

That’s why I said to a lesser extent because we still don’t know much about him. All we know is he left his child for unknown reasons. Also why I said he’ll likely get redemption


epicarcanoloth

Happy cake day!


CedarWolf

Thank you very much. =\^.\^=


Kanna1001

I actually like Kikimora. I'd rather keep hating Odalia.


Kanna1001

Agreed. Like Pacifica's parents in Gravity Falls.


Zeebuoy

or Sniper's biological parents in tf2 comics, they both left him and like 5 others to die, for literally no reason when everyone could've fit in the submarine. oh also they killed the entire population of New Zealand, minus 3.


[deleted]

Exactly (and apply this to Boscha too)- esp when you take in the fact that she's literally an abusive mother- and I feel like it'd be a bit insensitive to redeem an abusive person, especially when there's so much room to get it wrong.


BlueRaith

They're also pretty cliche tbh. I'm hoping for a more nuanced take. Like, Odalia realizes she's a shit parent, but by the end of the series, doesn't really understand what to do about it, and admits that fact. Amity and the twins understand that she *wants* to be better, but the series ends with them being in that awkward place where the problem has been identified, but they haven't yet done any significant healing and none of them are sure that they forgive her. A bit of a loose thread, but relatively harmless one and the audience can draw their own conclusions, plus gives the lesson that you don't *have* to forgive family who hurts you if you're not sure about it.


Hopeful_Squirell

Mabye Alador gets a redemption arc


vicapuppylover

> She has potential to be a good character I've never understood when people say something like this or wasted potential. Every character has potential to be a good character or a bad character. It's just how they're written. Doing more with a character doesn't necessarily mean it will be good or not.


Mastakillerboi

Highlight the shit out of that deep


Amity__Blight__

Deep.


realemira-blight

No


EE54

Season 2B is talking too long so Mark is expanding the Owl House cinematic universe himself.


Chariotwheel

If 2B features content that contradicts MoringMark it will be non-canon.


[deleted]

I mean, how long do you except shows to get made?


EE54

As long as it takes I guess. I just think it's cool how fans are sort of expanding the lore themselves.


No-Mathematician3921

Odalia: "Congrats. You just got yourself a business partner." Alador: "What I have...is an overcompensated apprentice." *Takes a shot of apple blood*


Th35h4d0w

[So who's the bartender?](https://youtu.be/GimrxP2U0ZE?t=177)


No-Mathematician3921

That's a good question


MakaylaPringles

Ladies and Gents this is what you've been waiting for


shadowblade159

Well, *now* I wanna see someone animating that whole sequence with Alador and Odalia, so thank you


No-Mathematician3921

You're welcome lol


1milionand6times

Eda was the one who buy it. And she stole the money from Odalia to do so.


poppymeow11

Eda is on the potion track, the one who bought it had red outfit


1milionand6times

She disguised herself


poppymeow11

Technically she can't, those outfits are magical. Only Bump can change them


Osama-recycle-bin

What about paints


poppymeow11

Okay still, why would she disguise herself? And other than that, Eda is 4 years older than Odalia and Alador.


Twist_Ending03

She is?


darsparx

Uh didn't willow change hers herself when she told Luz that bump was impressed and decided to switch her over?


poppymeow11

Bump allowed her to change the outfit


poppymeow11

Also also- that guy's skin colour was not accurate to Eda's. Her skin is way brighter


1milionand6times

Funnily enough, it's not, her skin just got a lot lighter the more she aged for some reason, maybe the curse. Compare the images of her younger self to her older self side by side to see the difference.


poppymeow11

So why did Lilith also have bright skin?


1milionand6times

A have no idea, maybe she just didn't got out that often or some other thing like that


poppymeow11

I just checked young eda on google, her skin colour was almost identical to old eda's


1milionand6times

Uh, sorry, maybe I confused because of the flashback effect


Mrwright96

Maybe Raine?


MidnightSwan90

It can't be them, either. The skin color is way too light.


Reborn1Girl

Raine bought it, knowing Eda would want one. And that she'd steal the money to pay them back later.


poppymeow11

Read the other comment


TheGhostofCipher

Shit we really need a scene with Odalia and eda


SFH12345

I refuse to believe otherwise.

thunderj9

Thanks for always posting the source


Radium_Cobalt_847

Delightful couple, horrible parents. *Perfectly balanced as all things should be.*


DarkestAKnight

Horrible and neglectful parents if you ask me


realemira-blight

You are correct


Amity__Blight__

Yep


poppymeow11

Can't wait to see more fan fics about the past!


acelie26UwU

Awwwwwwwwwww This is what I'm looking for. As much as I hate Odalia's gut, I just wanna see her and Alador have some actual married kind of interaction. ***And thank Titan we have MoringMark, our Lord and Savior***


Amity-Bight84

I've always wanted to see an origin story of the blight parents because tbh they're some of my favorite characters in toh


No13-cW

It's stuff like this that reminds that she's had 3 kids with the guy... edit:lime.


Nuigi12

This is canon in my head


Exciting_Article_746

So wholesome, but damn, Alador is kinda hot though


Chuck__g_

First panel is Apple


Real_meme_farmer

I love how they’re talking about the sticky launcher and then there’s basically the Direct Hit in the background. Pretty cool to see TF2 easter eggs here!


CaptainEli24

Welcome back to another episode of “God this family needs some therapy”


Amity__Blight__

All of us


I_asked_about_drill

Alador always has that face you cant quite describe even in their wedding photo


Ozzt98

And that night they make the twins.


dozensofdonny

interesting take, but I can't imagine them getting three children as bussiness partners. On the other hand, maybe it works a bit different in the Demon Realm...


kekkres

It's not that strange, marriages where largely economic arrangements until pretty recently


No-Nefariousness1711

Yeah, yeah, they like eachother and fuck this comic is actually cute... But that doesn't mean they aren't still abusive shits.(this is directed at myself, you can direct this at yourself if you want)


Yellow_Persona

Yeah, I don't feel like this version of Alador would blackmail Amity into cutting off Willow.


jauxro

idk, people can have sweet moments and still be elitist snobs


Fitzftw7

And then E&E happened.


BeastBrony

I head canon that the twins were conceived within a week of this


TorpidT

Good comic and all but the concept of Odalia and Alador's relationship starting as business partners and then staying that way for the next like 10+ years is so wacky to me lmfao


Hopeful_Squirell

I remember it like It was yesterday. I still have the slingshot.


_-Giorno_Giovanna-_

DID SOMEBODY SAY STICKYBOMB LAUNCHERS?


dicemonger

Why do I find Odalia cute in page 6, panel 3. I can't think of any logical reason why I should, but yet..


Planem1

Aaaaw


bluefalconlk

Me cry now


Icy-Performer-9688

Why do I get the feeling that those who simp for Odelia is going to go crazy over this.


Maycrofy

Alador could've done better. #changemymind


MGD109

He definately could have. Thing is, he didn't want better he wanted her.


stupid_machine

This, this is beautiful


Zodiac36Gold

This is actually heartwarming. It made me smile.


ZeanH

I feel sad for Alador


hmansloth

Wonder who was the witch who bought it?


Icarusty69

I hate how much I love these two. They’re horrible abusive parents (well, more just passively neglectful in Alador’s case, but still) and don’t deserve to be happily married. *So why do I love seeing them be adorable with each other so much?!*


jauxro

I love the idea that they were fake-married lol


TChurroc

When I read "Sticky Launcher" I immediately heard bagpipes...


Hotdogmorty

don’t humanize the enemy you fools


Snobu65

If you are fighting people always acknowledge them as people, but don't let that stop you from doing what needs to be done.


HollyhocksAndRoses67

This is canon. I refuse to believe otherwise. Odalia already on the lookout for making profits makes me think her parent(s) were business people as well. Cycle of abuse, perhaps? Amity's comment about always looking for opportunities proves that Odalia has tried to drill this into Amity as well, but fortunately, Amity has found like Luz that stands up in the face of abuse. I'm not saying Alador is a bad person, but he is more or less apathetic/ignorant to the way Odalia has manipulated Amity.


eclipse_mirror

i am not crying you are


SwordfishHoliday88

Welp, now I’m kinda sad. Time to go hide in a blanket cocoon until I am in-sad.


Crazy-Crisis

Awwwww so sweet


kingofsouls

Wow. Odalia *does* have a heart! A very tiny one but still a heart!


TheWyster

This would be cute, if it weren't for the fact that they're abusive parents and Odalia is an attempted child murderer


Gian-Nine

YEAH, sure, as if she even HAD actual feelings


RG1997

She does have feelings, she’s just an asshole


MGD109

So good, so plausible and so weirdly sweet. Their terrible people, terrible parents and everything, but I honestly really like that they do genuinely love each other.


Current-Guide8265

Okay, how many people are loving the image of Odalia being a greedy little gremlin? BECAUSE I LOVE GREMLIN ODALIA!!! SO MUCH!!!!!


Thicc-Anxiety

Girlboss and malewife


Closeted_Axolotl

Aww


TheAuthor-dipperkid

Aldor is my favourite mystery character in a long time. I still think he's masterminding something behind everyone's back.


eret_the_mushroom

GOD MY HEART Y U DO THIS WE MEANT TO NOT LIKE HER alador we love hes wholesome dad


Spectral_Flames

Not the best parents. But probably not the worse


Partymasteryt

Heart warming still hate her but heart warming


MixelMan0106

Odalia, you get a pass. But, only for today...


Bad_RabbitS

I do hope Odalia gets some moments like this in season 2B. Not a full on redemption per se, but just something to show us she actually gives a damn about her family, at least a little.


realemira-blight

Clearly false. Odalia is not capable of love


Background-Top4723

Ah yes, my favorite Trope: "Horrible people, wholesome couple".


SilentB3ast

So who payed for that slingshot?


Black_Thunder_

I love them so muchhh 😩😩😩✨✨💜💚


GrunkleTony

This is great, and I can easily imagine it happening this way. Please someone do a fan comic anthology and include this in it.


pizza-parker76

Moringmark TOH comic number 188


randallllllll

Chros777

YEEEEEESSSS, VILLAIN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!!!! YEEEEEEESSSS!!!


MagicTech547
