I think CeCi should at least put on some different clothes Something with pockets, especially as it's cold. She will look out of place otherwise.
Centcomm 29th May 2015, 12:53 AM edit delete reply

By the time anyone notices her dress they probably will notice Dolly first
Also Ceci is already known to be a android so her being cold won't concern them :)

Hmm... Amalthea didn't say she won't tell anyone, just that she shuts up unless told otherwise.

Also, is that a We Were Soldiers reference from Cici? I didn't know she was a Plumley fan :)
HiFranc 29th May 2015, 1:39 AM edit delete reply

In this place, people may assume that she's the entertainment. That is until she kills them.

The game is afoot, "Cry, Havoc, and let slip the Dogs of War."

Please tell me the comic isn't going to have David Bowie's crotch as a guest star lol (not that I'd consider it a problem if it were to happen ;) )

Note: any of the following are acceptable guest stars to me: David Bowie's crotch (did such an excellent job in Labyrinth, you know), Robert Downey Jr.'s ego (without it, Iron Man would have flopped), Vin Diesel (between Riddick, Fast and Furious, being a huge D&D nerd, and "I am Groot", well...crush central for me *blush*), Q...I mean Discord...I mean John DeLancie, Scarlet Johannsen, Kelly Hu, Allison Hannigan, or Felicia Day.

I seriously feel sorry here for Amalthea... If Dolly and Ceci fail, it will not go well for her.
Stormwind13 29th May 2015, 1:57 AM edit delete reply

Even if Dolly succeeds, Almalthea may die, DLK. If Dolly gets Lynn and runs, Douchimus is still in charge. The Caasians would torture and killed her to find out what she knew. So unless Acantha is FIRMLY on the throne, Amalthea's days may be numbered.
Dragonrider 29th May 2015, 2:53 AM edit delete reply

@Stormwind13; Remember, Acantha is underage and SFB has a Doomsday switch when his life response stops.
Centcomm 29th May 2015, 2:12 AM edit delete reply

Remember Dolly is registered as a freelance merc so for all anyone knows she could be on a mission for the prince
Tokyo Rose 29th May 2015, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

Why would it go hard for Amalthea? She's a slave, and a transhuman slave at that. She's nothing and no one. The powers that be have no reason whatsoever to even look at her, much less waste time and effort torturing her for information. Who would give important information to a mere chamber slave?

. . . this particular Nova Roman attitude is why Miraiko has gotten away with an awful lot of shit under everybody's nose, by the way.
Stormwind13 29th May 2015, 11:08 AM edit delete reply

If Dolly's part of Lynn's escape becomes known then ANYONE that had contact with her, Rose. Amalthea would immediately be pulled in, the Cassians are smart enough to know servants (and slaves) see and hear things. The second they got her, it would be obvious she knows something (judging by her demeanor). They would take her apart to get it.

Nice glasses...

...and where is the shooting? XD

Centcomm 29th May 2015, 2:13 AM edit delete reply

No shooting yet
mjkj 29th May 2015, 6:57 AM edit delete reply

No shooting, yet? great *is happy for Amalthea* she seems to be nice...

...and would Amalthea not hear the bursts?
(it is suggested so in current comic 1181)
Centcomm 29th May 2015, 12:41 PM edit delete reply

At this Point it does not matter
HiFranc 29th May 2015, 1:41 AM edit delete reply

What does the message mean?

Is Amalthea a spy? Even if she's not knowingly a spy, has her master (or someone else) bugged her?
Centcomm 29th May 2015, 2:14 AM edit delete reply

Could be?
ProfEtheric 29th May 2015, 1:59 AM edit delete reply

YES! YESYESYESYESYES!!!!! Go Dolly GO!!!!!!!
Centcomm 29th May 2015, 2:15 AM edit delete reply

Would you believe it gets better?
ProfEtheric 29th May 2015, 2:24 AM edit delete reply

Yes. Yes, I would. :)
Mark_L_A 29th May 2015, 2:36 AM edit delete reply

Rereading this again, CeCi's "MOMMY!" leads me to think that if Dolly and CeCi survive all of this, CeCi will have a genuine emotional attachment to Dolly and once everything calms down, Dolly might actually take CeCi under her wings as her foster daughter.

Just thinking.
Centcomm 29th May 2015, 2:44 AM edit delete reply

I think your right
mjkj 29th May 2015, 8:52 AM edit delete reply

Me, too.

In addition to all her Taylor daughters... :)
Aetrun 29th May 2015, 12:41 PM edit delete reply
Which made me think: Oh good, now all the Taylors will have a black angel sister.
Tango Xray Actual 29th May 2015, 4:14 AM edit delete reply
Ahhh.... The subtle whine of the compressors spinning up the turbines in the background just before the fuel nozzles load the combustion chambers and ignite....

As for CeCi and Dolly: more than Master and Apprentice; family.
Tango Xray Actual 29th May 2015, 4:35 AM edit delete reply
I like it that Ceci's ethical code moves her away from scorched earth type ROEs and she trys to restrain Dolly from too much collateral damage amongst the populace.

I doubt there are too many 'Good Germans' in the general society except for the echelons of the Empire's bureaucracy and номенклату́ра.

I think I hear a story coming from all of this that will be passed down in many a drinking hall! The story would tell of The Lost Girl, The Mad Prince, The Zealous Protector, and The Boy who Died. Hopefully not twice though....
jas 29th May 2015, 9:00 AM edit delete reply

I don't know why I find it so hilarious every time Ceci calls Dolly "Mommy!" but I do. Especially with Ceci being a Black Angel.
KarToon12 29th May 2015, 9:05 AM edit delete reply

The password is always "swordfish". XD
The Old Scribe 29th May 2015, 3:38 PM edit delete reply

I can just imagine the surprise on the faces of Prince Douchebag's personal guards when a pretty little girl in hotpants rears back and leaves a smoking crater in their chests. "Peekaboo, I see through you."
