Wow... Let's just say Dr. Silver is annoyed... but FOUR Assault drones? And here I thought TeeDee was the one to worry about overreacting!
Stormwind13 19th Dec 2014, 12:22 AM edit delete reply

Doctor Silver isn't planning on leaving witnesses. She was going to pound the entire checkpoint into the blood-soaked ground and then escape with that much firepower. :-P

Not only was she about to activate four assault drones, they were HEAVY assault drones.

Remember VINNIE, the medium-heavy drone that Mira drooled over ?
Yeah, he was only labelled a medium-heavy ... so I wonder just how nasty the ones they brought with them are.

I doubt they are the small floating death bots that Dr Silver has had flying around with her so far.
Stormwind13 19th Dec 2014, 8:00 AM edit delete reply

You are absolutely right, Sheela. They wouldn't be the little balls. Not the HEAVY assault units for sure. I think I remember something about super beach balls of DEATH for some of the drones she had along. I'm thinking those might be what she was getting ready to activate.

I keep forgetting about Dr Silvers choice of "Companions". (shiver)
Sheela 19th Dec 2014, 5:25 AM edit delete reply


Ok, that was hilarious.
Hornet 19th Dec 2014, 1:17 AM edit delete reply
Okay the Doctors response actually made me chuckle out loud. That would be fun to watch... From about 4 kilometers away. :P
Stormwind13 19th Dec 2014, 7:45 AM edit delete reply

No, no Hornet. Better make it 5 kilometers... that was the kill zone around Aeneas when he was attacked. The Doctor might have try to recreate that kind of devastation. In the mood she is in, better safe than sorry.

I Really didnt expect Teedee to restrain herself this well. I thought for sure she would be in melee by the second panel!
Sheela 19th Dec 2014, 5:27 AM edit delete reply

Well, she knows Marcus is in the rafters, if anyone is in an opportune spot, it's Marcus.
But I agree, if she was *really* serious, she wouldn't be jawing off, she would simply attack.

I think she's still hoping that there is a way to do it without endangering the mission.
She is after all a veteran S&R agent, she knows how fast things can go down the drain. It may not be a conscious thought, but rather some sort of feeling deep down, that makes her leary of just straight out assaulting, hoping someone else on her team has a better solution.

That said, she really, REALLY, wants to have her own pound of flesh to chomp down on.
velvetsanity 19th Dec 2014, 7:24 AM edit delete reply

She's probably holding herself back due to a combination of orders from Marcus and the understanding that taking action here would well and truly blow their cover worse than a $2 crack whore that's in the middle of dying from an overdose.

Quit dragging it out this guy deserves a real painful ass kicking and perhaps a bit of urinating on.
xpacetrue 19th Dec 2014, 10:12 AM edit delete reply

I'm with plymayer on this. This is starting to get painful to watch. So, I'm hoping we get to the proper face-pounding phase ASAP.

That, or at least some sort of resolution. (And then waiting patiently until we can see him get his just deserts.)
Sheela 19th Dec 2014, 10:43 AM edit delete reply

If you read it straight form the archive, like you would read a normal comic, ie. a page every 20-30 seconds or so, it wouldn't seem so long.

One of the troubles with webcomic formats, is that you follow the story as it's created.
Meanwhile, with all the calls for anger and violence, I'm going to add a bit of cute to counterbalance it ..

Here - Have a bit of cute :


Y U waek me up?

I knew I liked Dr. Silver.... :D

Well, I doubt she will act quite yet, but preparing to do so - and most importantly keeping TeeDee in check...

I wonder why they were speaking in quick speak and not - like Dr. Silver and Marcus - in their group radio - the soldiers might have a device to detect android speed talk...

I wonder how douchebag junior will react faced with the drones... :p

@alt text: yeah, let us, please. Anytime now. Now? Gah, still waiting... waiting for weeks now... *sighs frustrated and annoyed*

PS: Ada is looking good :D

Pirtnac 19th Dec 2014, 3:38 AM edit delete reply
They started with normal voice, Teedee "started it" on quick speak when she had pretty much decided to blow cover, meaning she was about to make being detected irrelevant. After that, everyone else kinda had to so their two cents wouldn't arrive after the fight started. Marcus just wants everyone to simmer down for a sec. He's giving Mr Black a chance to salvage the situation or a chance to let it get far enough beyond help they can continue with the mission.

As for Mr Black, thus far he's been setting up situations to his advantage but hasn't had any "Saved you! Woo!" moments. I think this is his chance to change that. Pummeling Big Red is out, and anyone he calls would put him under a microscope. This is either ending up badly or they get invited for an apology dinner with the the price at the palace.

Ooh, does he have a Caspian on speed dial? THEY don't have a problem eliminating royal guards that step out of line and I'm sure someone needs to bring them tech discreetly.
DLKmusic 19th Dec 2014, 3:49 AM edit delete reply

Putting A Cassian in the same room with Ada and TeeDee who are trying to pass off as humans is a VERY BAD idea....
mjkj 19th Dec 2014, 4:44 AM edit delete reply

@Pirtnac: I did not only meant today's update but also the last ones.

Ada is looking at your SOUL !!!

Gah, sorry, it seems I accidentally deleted the "good" that was there...
Tokyo Rose 19th Dec 2014, 9:48 AM edit delete reply

Dr. Silver and Marcus have a distinctly different style of "speed speak" bubble to reflect that their mechanism of doing so is different. It's effectively short-range cyber-telepathy.
Sheela 19th Dec 2014, 10:39 AM edit delete reply

You mean Implanted Instant Telephones ?
CptKerion 19th Dec 2014, 4:47 AM edit delete reply
Didn't I see Dickless Gorilla in reference to him in the comments recently? It has to be one of my favorite insults of all time now.
mjkj 19th Dec 2014, 4:53 AM edit delete reply

Oh, by the way, who is that talking to TeeDee and calling her short? Then thinking don't kill hurt me? Could be Dr. Silver - but that thought in the bubble does not fit her...

...the thought bubble could be Connie speaking though... (that would fit, except for the shape and color of it.)

Sheela 19th Dec 2014, 5:36 AM edit delete reply

Could be one of the regular guards too, I reckon.
And if it is, it seems he has successfully figured out that the situation is really bad.

After all, anyone who would confidently go after Mister Redshirt Guard barehanded, despite the fact that he is fully armed and armored, would have to be pretty nasty themselves. Besides, they're supposed to be wastelanders, and they are not exactly considered to be soft to begin with.
velvetsanity 19th Dec 2014, 6:20 AM edit delete reply

Judging by the weapon charging sound effect in the same panel, Sheela's probably right and it's one of the other redshirts...err, red armored security

Edit: could be the customs agent
Stormwind13 19th Dec 2014, 7:54 AM edit delete reply

I'm thinking it might be Optio Silius, Sheela. He was there and they were talking out loud about turning Clod into a grease spot, so he might have had to object (bad for morale letting any of the lobsters be turned into fertilizer).
Sheela 19th Dec 2014, 10:40 AM edit delete reply

Ah, but Mr Redshirt wouldn't thing "don't hurt me" ... he's absolutely certain that he is superior to all of them.

I think it's more likely to be one of the regular guards under him, or even one of the regular customs agents.

If I may quote the Demoman at Arseface McShithead.
