Odd, you would have thought that Centcomm would have known about the smuggling and given CeCi a basic introduction to such things.

Governments rarely admit even to themselves any more than strictly necessary about the importance of smuggling. These habits tend to be hard to break, so they don't even always admit to themselves enough how vital they are. Because what government really wants to admit that the limits they've put on trade are ones that not even they can live with?

But for New Troy, any android half of Dolly's age would know about android smuggling in New Troy and that it's one of the forms of illegal trade that is actually usually strictly enforced.

I do not always comment. I am enjoying the story - just do not have any thing to say or add to the conversation, :)

Great page. I especially love the text - very good and thought through. The landscape is very pretty also.
Centcomm 1st Jul 2014, 9:46 PM edit delete reply

Thank you dearly ! :D

It is true - and you are welcome :D
dpallee 1st Jul 2014, 9:44 PM edit delete reply

reputable smugglers is almost an oxymoron. Great page!
lurker 1st Jul 2014, 10:57 PM edit delete reply
I guess its probably good that you know so little.

High end drug smugglers have been known to brand their products.

Anyone who can reliably do a job is in a position to be considered reputable.

After all, if you're smuggling tea to the US (because you aren't paying the tariff), the British are just ONE of the armed marauders you might face.

LOL look at Han solo :D

You might be surprised about the room for 'illegitimate legitimacy' in this world; if you fulfill a customer requirement well enough to attract repeat business and referrals you can be a 'reputable' just about anything. Reputable courtesan, reputable meth cooker, reputable mutual fund manager, reputable used car salesman, reputable radio personality, reputable lawyer... there may even be reputable politicians.

BA DUM Tss at the last one... sadly

Very true, anonymous. Takes some time, but if you deliver what you promise people will see you as (more) trustworthy.

The black market is the only free market.

Reputation spread by word of mouth is about the only advertising a smuggler (free marketer daring closed borders) can use. Legal advertising is closed to them.

Unfortunately, their reputation has to include a tough stance on getting defrauded, since they also have no recourse to the state-monopolized legal system. That may make them look less 'safe' to peaceful law-abiding types, but it is necessary.
Sheela 2nd Jul 2014, 2:16 PM edit delete reply

No such things as reputable politicians.
Especially the higher up the ranks you get.

And reputable lawyers are few and far between as well. And as for stockbrokers ... not a one!
anonymous coward 2nd Jul 2014, 3:45 PM edit delete reply
You're rich enough to know? I didn't know that multi-billionaires who have bought the services of many politicians read webcomics and comment on the internet.
Tokyo Rose 3rd Jul 2014, 7:30 AM edit delete reply

Why bother being a multi-billionaire with many politicians in my pocket if I couldn't have the leisure to read webcomics and comment on the internet? :D
anonymous coward 3rd Jul 2014, 8:29 PM edit delete reply
I'd say it's crazy too, but generally people who get that rich are animated primarily by greed and often care surprisingly little about other things.
Some Ed 4th Jun 2017, 12:55 PM edit delete reply
Depends on who's checking the reputation. If you're a millionaire or billionaire, you really want to go with the reputable politician who will actually do what you've paid him to do, rather than one of the ones who will take everyone's money and then do something to screw everyone over.

Reputable stockbroker seems to me as plausible as a reputable bookie. Which is plausible, it's just not quite in the way most people think reputable should be.

Dolly with the John Lennon style eye-ware= win!
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2014, 7:35 AM edit delete reply

heheh - Those were a last second idea - glad they went over so well :D
velvetsanity 3rd Jul 2014, 5:07 PM edit delete reply

They really do look good. I bet what we're not seeing about them is the built in display replicating the combat HUD that she's used to having :D
Vivocateur 2nd Jul 2014, 12:03 AM edit delete reply

Well...I suppose that's one way to maintain your cover...
Stormwind13 2nd Jul 2014, 2:54 AM edit delete reply

If you get people to classify you (erronously) then you will be largely ignored. They will see what they EXPECT to see, not what is really there.
Just look back at Breaker, he saw Dolly as a human. Despite her all but beating him over the head with it he CONTINUED to see her as a human, instead of the gynoid she is.
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2014, 7:41 AM edit delete reply

yes it is :D

I'm really digging Dolly's glasses. XD
Centcomm 2nd Jul 2014, 7:42 AM edit delete reply

Wow I guess they are a hit :D
Stormwind13 2nd Jul 2014, 2:45 PM edit delete reply

That's Dolly? I thought it was Clark Kent! :-D Sometimes the simplest disguises work well. :-)
Mister Black 2nd Jul 2014, 4:50 PM edit delete reply

Obviously not Mr. Kent....her hair is too well behaved! :-D
Stormwind13 2nd Jul 2014, 5:01 PM edit delete reply

I don't know about that, Mr. Black. I mean, most of the Superman's I remember Clark's REAL power seemed to be not getting too messed up. Including his hair. From Bud Collyer's Superman thru George Reeves to Christopher Reeve to Tim Daly's representation. :-D
Mister Black 3rd Jul 2014, 12:39 AM edit delete reply

You're forgetting about the Spit-Curl of Power that was the true manifestation of his Kryptonian heritage :D
Centcomm 3rd Jul 2014, 10:32 AM edit delete reply

Oh my god thats right.. although Smallville did kinda remove that..
Stormwind13 3rd Jul 2014, 2:00 PM edit delete reply

Granted, Mr. Black; however, that one curl never MOVED. I mean, nuclear blast... it stayed in one place. Getting zapped by Darkseid, stayed in one place. :-D

Okay,as usual I'm confused. Am I supposed to use this new thingy or can I still use the donate button like before?
Sheela 4th Jul 2014, 10:15 PM edit delete reply

I suspect the donate button still works.

However, the Patreon thing is a re-ocurring thing, so it's like hitting the donate button once a month, only with much less work.
