Roses? "When they're actively hunting prey"?

Talk about the waltz of the flowers...
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2014, 9:47 PM edit delete reply

Feral roses.. trust me they are bad.. but,... pretty
Sheela 23rd Jul 2014, 7:03 AM edit delete reply

I've heard of those.

Supposedly they roam the mongol steppes in large packs and can strip a murderturd to it's bones in a matter of minutes.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 12:08 PM edit delete reply

they are eeeeevilllllll !
velvetsanity 23rd Jul 2014, 11:29 AM edit delete reply

Feral Roses from Tokyo, perhaps? :D
Sheela 24th Jul 2014, 4:09 PM edit delete reply

No, the one that slipped away to Tokyo is special.

It has people that actually care about it. :)

Even if she had to make the people herself, Sheela. :-D

yes she does..

While Ceci keeps breaking <b>parts</b>... Wait until loverboy finds what's happened to his colleague! >:=)>

@Greenwood: this side uses BBCode, so you have to use [ and ] for bracketing, not < >
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2014, 5:21 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, mjkj. I use this site - BBCode for the valid commands (and thank you Cat for pointing it out to me).
cattservant 24th Jul 2014, 10:27 AM edit delete reply

That was back when I still had some clarity.
mjkj 24th Jul 2014, 7:21 PM edit delete reply

@Storm: though not all do work e.g. the color tag does not.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 12:08 PM edit delete reply

heh :D he might be impressed..

Oh myyyy... I wonder what face would Dolly put when she finds the gift xDDD
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2014, 9:47 PM edit delete reply

she would be confused.. :P
mjkj 22nd Jul 2014, 11:54 PM edit delete reply

Yup, he has totally fallen for Dolly. Poor him, it was not meant to be.

Hmm, I hope we will see the Rose(s) on the hunt eventually... ;)

@CentComm: Yeah, I like the incentives, thank you. :D

Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2014, 5:25 AM edit delete reply

You are right, mjkj. Probably not in the cards; however, I can't say I blame the guard.

Dolly has a lot going for her, and this guard is at least smart enough to realize it. The fact she is beautiful too, sure doesn't hurt either (though trying to push it WOULD hurt, a LOT! As the gutters found out in Joleet). :-D
MikeLinPA 23rd Jul 2014, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
You never know, stranger things have happened. He likes her the way she is. She wouldn't have to change for him, in fact, he wouldn't want her to! He likes her because she is smart and strong of will, that is pretty flattering when you think about it.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 11:40 AM edit delete reply

Your really welcome im trying to do nifty stuff for the Patreon peeps :D

As for love sick guy here .. He just found his dream girl :D
cattservant 24th Jul 2014, 10:29 AM edit delete reply

He's a Roma-tic!
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2014, 3:34 PM edit delete reply

Cat, that kind of pun will get you SKINNED. And deservedly so! :-D
Sheela 24th Jul 2014, 5:10 PM edit delete reply

Wall of text in 3..2..1..

A dirty old monk drag an old cart down a dirty old medieval town street.
Monk : *bong* .. "Bring out yer cats!"
A first story window is flung open and a dead cat is thrown unto the cart. The dead cat haven't even hit the cart before the windows slams shut again. This repeats itself over and over again while the monk drags his rickety old cart down the street until suddenly, with a mighty wail, a cat sails trough the air from a window up high and lands with a mighty *THUD* in the cart and the monk yells at the lady, "Look you old fart, you're only supposed to throw out DEAD CA..." he stops midsentence. The cat is awfully quiet, not moving an inch. "Hrrmph .. very well then." the monk mutters and turns around to get the cart moving again.
The fat lady gives the dead cat a last haughty sneer, and then slams shut her window so hard that it rattles.
Monk : *bong* .. "Bring out yer cats!"
Stormwind : "Erhh .. I say, could you take this this cat to be skinned too ?"
The Monk looks ascance at the cat proffered by the dirty gentleman, it looks back at him.
Monk : *sigh* "This cart is only for dead cats, and that one there is clearly still alive."
Stormwind : "Noooo, no, no, no ... he can't be alive, he just died a few moment ago, you just can't see the difference yet, he havent had time to go stiff!"
Monk : ".. and the cat just yawned."
Stormwind : "What? Nooo, just a slack jaw dropping open because of extreme death, yessiree-bob."
Cattservant : "I'm getting tired of this, can I go back to the window sill ?"
Monk : "He even TALKS!"`
Stormwind : "Yes, well, I wish he wouldn't, nothing good ever came out of a cat's mouth, and the puns it makes are horrific."
Cattservant : "pfft, aint nuthin' worse thn' what com' o' yer trap." the cat mutters indignant as a hand has wrapped around it's mouth.
Stormwind : "Besides it would be a shame not to skin it. Beautiful plumage on the Norwegian Blue, eh? eh ?"
Monk : "..."
Stormwind : "What ?"
Monk : "Birds have plumage, cats don't."
Stormwind : "Oh, allright, allright, so he's a furry little fucker, but .." he's abrubtly stopped by the cat who screams "DON'T LISTEN TO HIM!!"
Cattservant : "Late at night, when he wears that abhorrent furry suit, he will come into your bedroom and make sure there's no way out, and then HE WILL DO HORRIBLE THINGS TO YOU!!"
Cattservant : "He will bugger you up, he will! He will bugger you up until it's all you can think about!"
Cattservant : "Please, please, take me with you, I still have 4 lives left, PLEEAAASSSEEE!!"
The monk made a quick furtive glance around him, many curious people were looking expectantly at him, and the Stormwind feller had gone stiff as a plank, and his pasted-on smile looked even faker than a lawyer at noon. He reached for his cudgel and *whack*, it was all done.
He looked at the fellow who had brought the cat, "If I ever see you around this cart, I will whack you with the cudgel as well!", the monk waved the cudgel at the fellow menacingly.
Stormwind : "No, no ... no punch, no punch.." he sidled away sideways like a crab, "No punch!" he bleated and disappeared.
The people who had been watching on in silence seemed to come out of a trance and started moving again, breaking the spell of silence.
The monk gave a loud sigh to himself, picked up the cat and flung it on the cart.
"Strange fuckin' day." he muttered to himself, "well, time to get this show on the road again."
He picked up the cart with a groan, pulled the cord and sang out the clarion call ..
Monk : *bong* .. "Bring out yer cats!"


I apologize for being so mean to Stormwind and Cattservant, the story was originally meant to be lighthearted with terrible puns from Cattservant and Stormwind arguing for having Cattservant skinned for it.
But somewhere halfway in, the whole thing rewrote itself in a much darker way.

... I'm so sorry ...

But I just couldn't leave it unwritten !
Please forgive me. :)

Oh dear god.. Sheela .. omg .. just.. wow * giggle fits *
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2014, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

The only thing I have to say, cats don't really interest me that much, Sheela. Cat GIRLS on the other hand... :-D
Sheela 24th Jul 2014, 5:53 PM edit delete reply

Lets just say, this story was originally a WHOLE LOT LIGHTER in it's first iteration.

But then, in it's second iteration, it got a WHOLE LOT DARKER ... than it is now.

SO in it's third iteration, and final form, I cut out about a full page of High Octane Nightmare Fuel from the part where Cattservant says "PLEEEAAASSEE" and to the bit where the monk hits him over the head with a cudgel.

.. in the second iteration, Stormwind was EEEVIL !
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2014, 7:02 PM edit delete reply

I never (and I do mean never) played Red-Side, Sheela. :-) I played a red character Blue-Side when that was allowed. Got a Corruptor to 42nd before they shutdown... Water Blast/Storm Summoning (go figure that, eh? :-D)
Sheela 25th Jul 2014, 7:31 AM edit delete reply

Oh man, I miss City of Heroes.
Stormwind13 25th Jul 2014, 1:53 PM edit delete reply

Me too, Sheela. :-( Every day.

Holding on until City of Titans launches. :-)
cattservant 24th Jul 2014, 5:54 PM edit delete reply

You should get checked for toxoplasmosis.
Sheela 24th Jul 2014, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

Heh, more like I watched "Silence of the lambs" yesterday.

Obviously, stormwind was the skin-dress fella, but with an "abhorrent furry suit" instead, which he would wear while dancing to Yvis' "what does the fox say?". Cattservant was the victim, offcourse.

And then the whole thing just got a shade darker, when I remembered that cats have 9 lives.

So he lost his first life on being skinned for the "abhorrent fursuit", which was the guys "beautiful plumage".
He lost his second life due to ############ ##### ## ######## ### ##### ##### *BEEEEP* /Stop-Abort-Reset

Stormwind13 24th Jul 2014, 6:28 PM edit delete reply

I've never dressed up in costumes... at least not since I was a kid for Halloween. :-D I do like other people that know how to do costumes and like to dress up in them though. :-)
Sheela 24th Jul 2014, 6:38 PM edit delete reply

Heh, it's probably best that way. :)
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 23rd Jul 2014, 7:23 AM edit delete reply

I like the framing and shadowing in panel 3, with Ceci's self-satisfied smile hidden in the darkness, thematically reinforcing that she's just put one over on these guys without them realizing it. And if that wasn't intentional, just lie and say it was!
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 11:38 AM edit delete reply

Oh it was totally intentional.. Ceci knows what she did :D
KarToon12 23rd Jul 2014, 8:13 AM edit delete reply

Looks like someone's in love....XD
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 11:41 AM edit delete reply

heheh - Yep seems that way :D
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 23rd Jul 2014, 10:00 AM edit delete reply

I like that this guy who's into Dolly wants the challenge of a REAL woman, and not just a maid/sex toy. Nice counterpoint to the hopeless horndogs.
Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 11:39 AM edit delete reply

Yep Roma Respects strength of character and personality. its one of their core beliefs(?) maybe that's the wrong term..
Rashala 23rd Jul 2014, 2:16 PM edit delete reply

So In the future only one man can get Roses for romance.......

Centcomm 23rd Jul 2014, 3:33 PM edit delete reply

he is the only one brave enough to brave the sands of the wastes.. and come back with the "feral Rose bloom" .. A rare prize indeed..
Rashala 23rd Jul 2014, 3:50 PM edit delete reply

I am guessing Gettign Roses now REALLy proves your courage and love for someone.

*borrows MArcus' Stealth suit A Mono-edge Katana from Rose with a promise to return it clean and unscratched. and slips out into the wasteland* Seriously I think Centy. ceci , rose And NOT tedee but dr Silver's Assistant back new troy deserve some signs they are appreciated.
Centcomm 24th Jul 2014, 8:00 AM edit delete reply

heheh :D
Stormwind13 23rd Jul 2014, 5:16 PM edit delete reply

I'll bet on ROSE! Tokyo Rose should be more than a match for the love lorn agent there. :-D
Hornet 24th Jul 2014, 5:15 AM edit delete reply
So the roses are the reason you need an APC to hunt the chickens. :P
Centcomm 24th Jul 2014, 8:00 AM edit delete reply

Quite :D
cattservant 24th Jul 2014, 10:32 AM edit delete reply

I still think the feral roses could have some kind of symbiotic relation with the scythe lizards.
Sheela 24th Jul 2014, 5:21 PM edit delete reply

Hardly symbiotic ... they eat the scythe lizards.
Maybe population control ?

And if you think the chickens are bad, then you should see the hedgehogs and armadillos. Last time someone tried that, the APC collapsed from the weight of the armadillo trying to mate with it! :D
Speedy Marsh 4th Feb 2017, 10:07 AM edit delete reply
+1^ These comments are in serious need of an upvote button.

That poor APC... Getting lept upon by a ludicrously large erotic, leprotic armadillo...

When those armadillos have a crush, they mean it literally!
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2014, 5:46 PM edit delete reply

CeCi is cute in the second panel there. I see a dusting of freckles. And the way she looking is adorable.

And the landscapes in the bottom two are very well done, CentComm. However you did that, the background there looks really good. :-)
Centcomm 24th Jul 2014, 6:27 PM edit delete reply

*smiles*( i have my many and varied ways :D ) and yes A lot of little details go unnoticed sadly :P
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2014, 7:05 PM edit delete reply

Maybe not commented upon, but always appreciated, CentComm. :-)
Mark_L_A 16th May 2015, 3:21 PM edit delete reply

Just a thought, Dolly, err excuse me, Ms. Dolores Blue has a surprise flower delivery at her quarters in the Black Palace, with a Comm Code and a dinner invitation. The flower are "Roses" and everyone looks at Dolores as she blushes so red her face almost lights up the room.
