The Asian kitty is out of the bag !
Leakingpen 18th Oct 2014, 12:25 PM edit delete reply
combined with your lady and the tramp avatar, that statement is hilarious.
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 3:04 PM edit delete reply

Should have been so much MORE than I seem. But yeah, Sheela, the cat is WAY out of the bag.

::Tosses a squeaky toy back into the bag to see if the cat can be put back in::

*throws in pandora's box as well, for good measure*

.. hrmm .. do you think it'll work ?

::Places a can of tuna and bottles of Fitz's root beer inside bag:: See about catching a... CAT. }:->
Sheela 18th Oct 2014, 1:34 AM edit delete reply

OOooooOoooohhh ... tuna !
Stormwind13 18th Oct 2014, 6:20 AM edit delete reply

Bad doggie. That is to get the cat BACK in the bag. Get your own tuna!
Haegan2005 18th Oct 2014, 10:17 AM edit delete reply

Okay, I am with Sheela on this...
Sheela 18th Oct 2014, 4:46 PM edit delete reply

Dibs on the tuna !

I didn't even see the tuna disappear!

Is Julia wearing just shirt and pants?
Centcomm 16th Oct 2014, 11:50 PM edit delete reply

she is wearing a light shirt and underwear .. thats it. :D
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 2:52 AM edit delete reply

Why would she dress up to play a game, shpenat? :-D
Rms2000 16th Oct 2014, 11:37 PM edit delete reply
@cattservant is she even wearing pants? all I see is a bit of something black and lacy in the corner of the topmost frame...

More to the point: you go, miraiko. Way to come clean about it. Why don't other heroes ever do this? Or people in general? It's often much easier to convince someone to help you if you tell them what you're doing first.
Rms2000 16th Oct 2014, 11:51 PM edit delete reply

I meant @shpenat
Centcomm 16th Oct 2014, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

well shes being a bit vague right now .. :D and well we try to make our heroes a bit more intelligent than Hollywood .. we are gamers after all ..
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 2:52 AM edit delete reply

LOL CentComm. Yeah, that is a good point.
mjkj 17th Oct 2014, 1:41 AM edit delete reply

And out it is.

I hope Dr. Julia agrees. She was kind and nice to Lynn. It would be a pity to lose her...

*lol* @alt text :D

Edit: ...and of course (after seeing patreon) I sure do hope Miraiko will survive also...
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 2:56 AM edit delete reply

Julia knows pretty close, inside a month, how long they have been together. To me that speaks of how important Miraiko, their relationship is to her.

Which is likely to make what is coming even MORE painful. Miraiko deceived Julia on a bunch of things... so is their love for one another enough to overcome that deception or not? Guess we will see.
Sheela 17th Oct 2014, 3:13 AM edit delete reply

What would hurt MORE, would be the torture that the prince would dish out, if he were to find out.

And Julia is oh-so-familiar with it.
She used to be his pet, after all.

Dethrone Prince D-Bag? Save someone about to be tossed in to the same soul grinder she was? She's in.

YEP you have that right..
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 2:10 PM edit delete reply

Physical pain only lasts so long, Sheela. Emotional pain can keep going longer and ultimately do MORE damage.
Sheela 17th Oct 2014, 3:44 PM edit delete reply

Oh sure, but I'm certain the prince inflicted a bit of both.

And frankly, visit enough physical pain on someone and it becomes a mental scar as well.
Centcomm 18th Oct 2014, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

Yep.. Most of Julia's scars are invisible...
highlander55 17th Oct 2014, 4:34 AM edit delete reply

SO her slave collar is the link Rose used to communicate with her. Probably bone induction.
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 2:11 PM edit delete reply

I think she has an implant, highlander. I wouldn't want to put my communication method into something that could be changed out on someone else's whim.
highlander55 17th Oct 2014, 4:48 PM edit delete reply

True Storm but a slave collar is common in Roma, an implant on a slave ( or ex-slave) may not be.
Tokyo Rose 17th Oct 2014, 8:00 PM edit delete reply

She's got a device in her skull that most scanners read as being a simple, inert medical "plate" fused to the bone.
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 10:44 PM edit delete reply

items and Tech that evades scanners is - while not common is wide spread. And Miriako even has the requsete "healed injury" that would have made such a thing needed... So they just ignored it.

Ceci is also packed with Sensor evading tech.
Sheela 18th Oct 2014, 1:35 AM edit delete reply

You could say that Dolly is made entirely out of "Sensor Evading Tech" ! :D
Stormwind13 18th Oct 2014, 7:44 AM edit delete reply

Any sufficiently advanced tech is indistinguishable from magic, Sheela. Dolly is tech BEYOND what people understand as tech, so they take it to be something it is not. :-)
jas 17th Oct 2014, 7:04 AM edit delete reply

Excellent dialogue on this page. I am equally impressed with the texture of Miraiko's shirt/blouse, very glossy yet it seems like you could touch the screen and feel it. :)
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 12:52 PM edit delete reply

its actually a short dress :D and thank you trying to match the look of synthetic silk :D
velvetsanity 17th Oct 2014, 7:17 PM edit delete reply

My impression is more semi-glossy vinyl than silk, but it does look really nice
Dragonrider 17th Oct 2014, 8:06 AM edit delete reply

Righ now the good doctor is feeling, confused, trapped, betrayed, scared for her life and friendless. All she can see is Kali turning her over to the Prince for rape, beatings and torture,
On another note my number one suspect for who set up this whole kidnapping mess goes straight to our inscrutable Asian Tokyo Rose. Who now seems to be setting herself up as the power behind each and every planetary AI making her the De Facto Ruler of Earth and possibly Luna also.
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 12:51 PM edit delete reply

LOL so Rose is now the villain INTERESTING :D
Tokyo Rose 17th Oct 2014, 3:40 PM edit delete reply

MWAHAHAHAHAHA! *clap of thunder*
Dragonrider 17th Oct 2014, 3:43 PM edit delete reply

See your clap of thunder and raise you two mega tonne warheads in direst succession on your central site.
Tokyo Rose 17th Oct 2014, 8:02 PM edit delete reply

Most people just send chocolates and flowers :D
Sheela 19th Oct 2014, 6:32 AM edit delete reply

That's because your "central site" is either a graveyard or a dating portal. :D

But, "Make love, not war.", is still a better rule to live by than two mega tonne warheads.

*sage nod*
Dragonrider 17th Oct 2014, 3:40 PM edit delete reply

Who else would think long term to plant Miriako as Julias lover, engineer the romance between Lynn and Kyle, give Callie the upgrade designs for Dolly, pass the word on Lynns flight to her Birthday Party and a few other projects so she can repair the Nova Roma AI, betting Sparta and the other smaller AI's are, probably unknown to them, linked to her mainframes. I'm sure Cent Comm might also have a link or two even if Cent Comm thinks she controls the link. The goal of the Asian Sphere always has been world domination, through economic means of by more direct confrontation if necessaty.
Sheela 17th Oct 2014, 3:46 PM edit delete reply

Deep Blue.
Tokyo Rose 18th Oct 2014, 4:31 PM edit delete reply

Deep Blue WAS originally designed to play chess . . .

Too bad for him that you play Poker and Dolly plays innocent, eh ?
Melody 17th Oct 2014, 11:50 AM edit delete reply
Wait, wait. Are Julia and Mirako/Rose lovers?
Dragonrider 17th Oct 2014, 12:07 PM edit delete reply

Julia and Mirako are lovers, have been for 4 ears 7 months. Rose controls Mirako due to ancient family ties that bind Mirako's family to Rose as master to servant.
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 12:36 PM edit delete reply

Yep Julia and Miriako are lovers. Julia technically "owns" Miriako by Roma law. however Julia treats her like a girlfriend rather than a slave.
Phil 17th Oct 2014, 1:57 PM edit delete reply
"Love Slave" Or "slave of love"? And which one is truely the slave of love?

Yeah Melody. See Happy Girl and the cake is a ?, page 427 and 428 (currently) from 29 September 2007.

What ?
You're pregnant Centcomm ?
With rose ?

But how can that BE ???

/lost in translation
highlander55 17th Oct 2014, 4:50 PM edit delete reply

Yeah Sheela! Giving birth to a bouncing ball of Hate! LOL
Tokyo Rose 17th Oct 2014, 8:04 PM edit delete reply

A bouncing SPIKY ball of hate.

Epidural, please.
Haegan2005 17th Oct 2014, 5:51 PM edit delete reply

Pregnant again?!?

How many times is Rose going to be born this season?
Sheela 18th Oct 2014, 1:38 AM edit delete reply

As many times as people tries to put pandora (Rose) "back in the box" again!

Am I just being paranoid, or are there horribly mutated and genetically engineered vultures flying over Julia's head now?
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 7:20 PM edit delete reply

They are certainly peeking in to see what happens, DLK. If she says or does the wrong thing, they are getting fed, I believe.
Centcomm 19th Oct 2014, 1:05 AM edit delete reply

KarToon12 18th Oct 2014, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

Put it this way; if you don't help me, I'll have to kill you.
Centcomm 19th Oct 2014, 1:05 AM edit delete reply

yeahhh looks that way..
Stormwind13 19th Oct 2014, 8:11 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, KarToon; however, I don't think Miraiko wants to put it in those terms. Runs the risk of Julia panicking and Miraiko would have to kill her now. Worst, Julia might say yes, and then break down later and blow the entire operation.

Miraiko needs her to be freely and totally committed to the mission. Or there is too much chance of it all going South (Antarctica here we come). If Julia believes in Miraiko though, she has a better chance of getting out of this alive.
velvetsanity 19th Oct 2014, 11:26 AM edit delete reply

I don't think she'd put it in those terms, but for a different reason. They're lovers, and have been for several years. Putting it in those terms would hurt Julia as badly if not worse than drekhead did. If anything, I'd guess she's more hoping that Julia will go along if only so that whatever happens, they stay together.
DLKmusic 19th Oct 2014, 3:59 PM edit delete reply
Come with me and let us fulfill your hopes and dreams. Make me proud to be with you,
or do not, forsake your dream, and not be worthy of either me or yourself....

Some choice, Miriako.
Centcomm 19th Oct 2014, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

I know right?
DizzasterJuice 18th Oct 2014, 4:34 PM edit delete reply

Very talented actor if she can keep up a fake accent for almost 5 years. I went out with a girl once that faked a French accent. She blew it as soon as she got drunk. lol
Centcomm 19th Oct 2014, 1:06 AM edit delete reply

Well once you do it so long it almost becomes natural. Actors run into the same thing..

So, what part of you is you and what part is a lie?
Stormwind13 11th Dec 2014, 3:54 AM edit delete reply

I just realized something... Miraiko is 22 years old. 4 years and 7 months ago, she would have been at BEST 18... could have been 17.

DAMN, Rose was cold sending her in to play slave. I mean Miraiko probably was beaten, if not raped, in introducing her to her new status as a slave. Awfully young to be tossing into this cesspool.

That is just FRIGID if you ask me. Rose needed an agent on site, and pragmatically sent in the one to do the job. The consequences to someone that young though... ::Shivers::
