A quick shove, a pounce ... and shove her not-pale head under water...
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

hehe good one :D

Well, judging from the last panel, Lynn do look like she's about to put some back-sass unto Acantha's sassing mouth !

... erhh ... I meant she'll talk to her, and not .. "do stuff". >_<

Yeah, things are more or less at rest.
Why rock the boat?
Leaking Pen 9th May 2014, 11:11 AM edit delete reply
Rock the boat baby.
Stormwind13 9th May 2014, 1:27 PM edit delete reply

Because cats like moving targets, Cat. :-D A rocking boat is MUCH more interesting than things just sitting there. :-)
cattservant 9th May 2014, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

Not to mention that hot lunch might appear!
Stormwind13 9th May 2014, 5:24 PM edit delete reply

Hot Lunch, Cat? Not sure that would FIT in a boat. Sure wouldn't in a ROW boat. :-D
cattservant 9th May 2014, 5:43 PM edit delete reply

In case you weren't being ironic;
I was making a very veiled reference to an old depression era story about two hobos and some decisions that they made.
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:47 PM edit delete reply

hehe rock da casbah?

Okay... If Lynne gets a complete makeover, with hair extensions and another color even, and ends up capitulating to the suggestion of a "melanin treatment" (aka, a good tan), then Kyle really won't be able to recognize Lynne.

Poor Kyle... If that happens, he'll never hear the end of it. ^_^

But then, why is Acantha so weirded out by Lynne's paleness? Methinks Lynne's complexion is almost normal for Troyans and Spartans and that, if anything, Romans just have a tendency to be slightly darker (whether hereditary, a preference for tans, environmental factors, or some combination).

Q: Does New Troy's environmental controls include U.V. filtration? I would think that a nuclear apocalypse and other weapons of insanity would have destroyed the ozone layer a long time ago. If so, that'd be yet another reason why it seems impossible to reintroduce Eden plant life.
Stormwind13 9th May 2014, 1:28 PM edit delete reply

That would be pretty funny, xpaceture. Both of them made over and passing each other in the hall without recognizing one another. Sounds just like something the (EVIL) CentComm would do too! :-D
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:49 PM edit delete reply

Its very possable - but I think you will like the new 'dos :D

Well part of it is good Natured teasing.. she isnt really wierded out as much as just joking around..
And yes New City shields have full UV protection and the ozone can be rebuilt.

Rashala 8th May 2014, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

Hey she's having her first cold. Give her a little leeway with sas I mean she almost Made Acantha Queen :)
velvetsanity 8th May 2014, 9:36 PM edit delete reply

Acantha's the one that's being sassy
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:50 PM edit delete reply

hehe - this is true thus the page name :D
Sheela 10th May 2014, 1:31 AM edit delete reply

Sassy is good. :)
plymayer 8th May 2014, 9:56 PM edit delete reply

Working nights my skin tends to be really white. Since my home is here in Florida my face isn't too bad. Let me pull up a sleeve and I can light a dark room like a flash light with my pale skin.
Stormwind13 9th May 2014, 1:38 PM edit delete reply

LOL plymayer. I wasn't working nights, but I've been there too. :-) Fish belly white they call it around here. :-D
plymayer 12th May 2014, 12:25 AM edit delete reply

Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:50 PM edit delete reply

yep night pale skin happens a lot :D
plymayer 12th May 2014, 12:25 AM edit delete reply

Like a vampire.
mjkj 9th May 2014, 12:30 AM edit delete reply

Great one.

It is great to see Acantha loosening up and being comfortable with Lynn about...

Good to hear that Lynn is quite well.

Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:51 PM edit delete reply

yep Acantha is doing her best to get on with her life :D
Stormwind13 10th May 2014, 5:17 AM edit delete reply

I think a large part of Acantha's being comfortable is that she is somewhere that she doesn't have to worry about Douchebag. The other part is that she has found a sister, someone she can be friends with that Douchebag can't (or won't) automatically shoot.

Douchebag put Lynn with Acantha as a PUNISHMENT. I'm SOOOOOO waiting for that decision to bite him in the ass. :-D
jamie59 9th May 2014, 3:56 AM edit delete reply

Get some sun Lynn.
Stormwind13 9th May 2014, 1:32 PM edit delete reply

Maybe she just likes her pale skin... or maybe she thinks (unfiltered) sunlight is bad for her, jamie. Or maybe she is like Sydney. :-D
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

that is too funny :D
Kitty 9th May 2014, 8:18 PM edit delete reply
Which it is, hence sunblocks in the real world. Just sayin'.

Liking the details, I can even see the stitching on Julia's top. Cool.
Stormwind13 10th May 2014, 5:13 AM edit delete reply

Too much sunlight is bad Kitty. A little though is actually GOOD for you (see vitamin D). So adding a LITTLE color wouldn't hurt Lynn. Burning her to a crisp on the other hand... :-D
Sleel 10th May 2014, 3:00 AM edit delete reply

Yeah. Vampires have nothing on crazy l'il Syd. (dunno how to embed the link in a word like you did, never tried before) This and DataChasers be a couple of my all time faves. Now that I think about it, it'd be fun to see a swear off between Syd and Miss Rose. Twould be epic, sailors everywhere would blush, even those yet to be born.
Stormwind13 10th May 2014, 5:10 AM edit delete reply

O_o Don't even SUGGEST that, Sleel!!! That 'conflict' might be enough to blow BOTH planets out of orbit and into the cold reaches of space!
xpacetrue 10th May 2014, 12:11 PM edit delete reply

@ Stormwind13
@ Sleel


mjkj 11th May 2014, 2:29 AM edit delete reply

Embedding links is easy, Sleel: comic fury sites use bbcode, so that would be: []description[/url] or [url][/url]
Dragonrider 9th May 2014, 4:29 AM edit delete reply

It would seem Acantha is really into the make-over for Lynn. Might she be ,beginning to look at exit strategies with changes for both so it might be easier to slip past complacent guards and get a head start on pursuit if they run for the border?
Stormwind13 9th May 2014, 1:36 PM edit delete reply

That is actually a great idea, Dragonrider. Acantha and Lynn know they can ditch the tracker whenever they want. And that it is only a tracker. So if they dramatically changed their appearances they might be able to get past many of the obstacles (guards, crazy Princes and servants) when they decide to leave. :-)

It is a good place to start, though you wouldn't want to leave their 'disguises' in place too long or too many people would see them for them to be effective.
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

always a possablity :D
KarToon12 9th May 2014, 8:14 AM edit delete reply

I guess at least her immune system will be stronger after having this cold. So there's that. XD
Centcomm 9th May 2014, 3:53 PM edit delete reply

yes it will actually :D
highlander55 10th May 2014, 4:36 PM edit delete reply

And when she gets back to New Troy she will cause an epidemic too!
Centcomm 11th May 2014, 9:14 AM edit delete reply

heheh thats funny :D
Rashala 11th May 2014, 1:43 PM edit delete reply

DAily side comment. I wonder.....if Centy has given calli her present today since she IS Technically her mommy sorta
Anonomised 11th May 2014, 3:52 PM edit delete reply
As the Taylors are to CentCom are the Livius' to Aeneas?

Would just like to say, having read everything here and in Luna Star in one day, I love the stories and the artwork!

Ave Imperator!
Johninaustin 11th May 2014, 7:09 PM edit delete reply
I much prefer "sassy" Acantha to "he's gonna kill me" Acantha. :)
Stormwind13 12th May 2014, 2:50 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, me too John.
