Tokyo Rose
We hope you enjoy this lovingly-crafted explosion.
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 12:36 PM edit delete
For you Long time readers - We have redone the first 50 pages of Datachasers - check it out .. comment give us some love darn it!

(( So I can convince Rose to crank out more for you! ))

These reboots take care of Minor inconsistency in plot .. tech issues Plot holes.. BAD HORRIBLE ART! and Gavin and Dari are much more believable characters now.

Lynn gets a upgrade as well as far as personality and writing.

Rose did a fantastic job on cleaning these up! So give her a party!

It is nicely done.
Centcomm 28th Jul 2015, 9:23 PM edit delete reply

thanks .. and this really does not do justice to the 4 tanks of explosive gas the 80 pounds of High explosive and the 2 canisters of Liquid explosives 10 gallons each AND the fusion core going boom..

and yes we are approaching the point where Ceci and Dolly will FINALLY link up with the girls !
Haegan2005 28th Jul 2015, 9:50 PM edit delete reply


Dolly! Dolly! Dolly!

I admit to a slight prejudice here!
Sheela 29th Jul 2015, 12:07 AM edit delete reply

'Tis a nice shrubbery ... erhh .. I mean, a nice explosion.
Now you must bring us another one, and place it next to this one, only higher, so we can have a lovely path down between them.
StellarJay 29th Jul 2015, 12:10 AM edit delete reply

We accept that what we are seeing is the beginning of the explosion and not the extent of it. To see it all would require pulling the point of view back a few blocks.
Anyway, reading this page was a blast!
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 12:35 PM edit delete reply

Yeah .. that pretty much was JUST the impact explosion.. then everything else goes boom .
That one guy 29th Jul 2015, 3:36 PM edit delete reply
I don't know, I think that looks pretty accurate for the explosion soon enough after triggering that you can recognize even the background.

Another 10-20 milliseconds or so and it's just fire or a zoom out of a large part of the city with the explosion (not mushrooming yet at less than 1 second).
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

thank you. that makes me feel a lot better :D

Oh yes.. Well at least it was painless.
Sheela 29th Jul 2015, 12:09 AM edit delete reply

Eh, betcha she survived it and went airborne.

Probably blew her all the way back to WhiteOut !
Lukkai 29th Jul 2015, 8:04 AM edit delete reply

I don't think it was. Just quick enough that it didn't really register. XD
That one guy 29th Jul 2015, 3:40 PM edit delete reply
I think the question "Is a death painless if your brain is incinerated before it can register the excruciating pain your body is put through?" is a bit more clear cut than "Does a tree falling in an empty woods make a noise?" question.

Bidda Bing-Bidda Bomb-Bidda Boom

Can just hear the first meeting between CeCi and Lynn.
CeCi: SIS..Mommy has told me all about you. I just know we're going to be the BEST of friends!!

Lynn: What the HELL...SIS? What hasn't Mother told me?

Dolly: Lynn this is CeCi, She's a bit excitable but she's on our side.

Acantha: Lynn how the hell do you have an Android for a sister?

Lynn: 'Cantha You tell me I sure don't know and this day can't get any weirder.
Centcomm 28th Jul 2015, 9:25 PM edit delete reply

hahah good one ! and yeah I kinda got confused and posted my response to this on the first one
Dragonrider 28th Jul 2015, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

That's OK I made about three edits, was thinking about couple more lines and decided enough was enough.
DLKmusic 28th Jul 2015, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

I'm still wondering how Lynn is going to react when she sees Dolly!

Dolly: Lynn! we're here to rescue you!
Lynn: Uhm yeah, sure... who exactly ARE you?
Dolly: Don't be Silly, Dear, it's me, Dolly!
Lynn: Dolly? Uhm, I don't think so... you're HUMAN....
Sheela 29th Jul 2015, 12:11 AM edit delete reply

Ha ha, yeah, there's gonna be some explaining to do. :D

That said, Dolly seems resourceful she's probably already thought that over while flying to Roma.
Lukkai 29th Jul 2015, 8:06 AM edit delete reply

Hey. If anyone's got the inside knowledge to prove his (or her in this case) identity to Lynn, it's Dolly!
Mark_L_A 29th Jul 2015, 8:13 AM edit delete reply

Dolly: ANGELA LYNN TAYLOR!, I changed your diapers and I KNOW about THAT birthmark you had removed.

Lynn: Nooooooooooooo don't talk about THAT!!!

Acantha/CeCi/Aeneas/Kyle (in Unison): Birthmark?
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 12:23 PM edit delete reply

LOL! watches Lynn turn pretty colors of red .. :D
That one guy 29th Jul 2015, 3:44 PM edit delete reply
I've been assuming that Calliope showed Lynn her work. Possibly requested her opinion on some aesthetics, too. After all, they both look at Dolly as a mother figure, and there's a very human tendency to want to share the anticipation of really big gifts like that.

I was assuming Lynn might be sad that Dolly emergency jumped to that body to save her rather than being able to consider it and make a choice about it as a gift the way Calliope had been intending.
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

I cant comment on this yet. :D
Mark_L_A 29th Jul 2015, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

True, if she even remembers that at the time, with all of the stress she has been under.

Also the possibility exists that while Lynn knows her mother was working on a new body for Dolly, that's ALL she knows. She doesn't know it's design, nor it's features. Although with the reboot pages going up, it's possible that the face and hairstyle transferred over quite easily, so Lynn would know that instantly.

And Lynn's reaction would be something like,

"Dolly?, Ohhh you got your new body!!! SQUEEEEE. I'm sooo sorry I got us all involved in this, can we please go home now?"
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

Actually I can comfirm one bit.. Dollys OLD face ( Ie her reboot looks ) the facial features are exactly the same. Just skin rather than the synth-flesh she had before. SO more than likely Lynn WILL recognize her after a few moments.. and her body language and expressions although the "Human"( Model 5 body) Dolly has a bit softer features than her android ones.
Sheela 30th Jul 2015, 1:03 AM edit delete reply

Plus Dolly is in heavy armor, so only her face is showing up anyways.

So there's actually a good reason why Lynn could/should recognise Dolly.

I guess this makes Bidi the Big Bad Wolf... She huffed and puffed, and Blew the house down!

Just_IDD 28th Jul 2015, 11:10 PM edit delete reply
I just came up with a way to disable Nox. Nox almost certainly has the code to stun Lynn. If Lynn goes down cradling the gun, Nox may not check her as thoroughly asuming that she is out of the fight. I'd definitely go for a body shot since droids are not likely to keep the brain in the hard to armor external sensor lump. of course that ther android suicided by going in through the ear, so who knows.
That one guy 29th Jul 2015, 3:50 PM edit delete reply
I suspect Noctis is intending to step in with Nox. My only guess at the moment is that Noctis intends to place herself in a position to be first line with the two girls running so that Nox doesn't break their legs or something.

Alternately, since Nox is stated to be very anti-human, it's possible that she'll view Lynn, who was pretty well raised by an android in a society where androids are deemed to have damn near the same rights as humans, in a much more positive light than anyone from New Rome and will behave somewhat atypically to what Malati expected anyway.

Sheela 29th Jul 2015, 12:15 AM edit delete reply

On a sidenote, the android brains are in fact placed in their heads. They were made to mimic humans to begin with, a design they stuck with.

But, on combat android, such as the cassians, the skull is armored.
Centcomm 29th Jul 2015, 12:22 PM edit delete reply

Correct .. All android Brains are in the head.
NTAS Standard do not allow non standard placement of critical components ( Brain MACCS Power core things like that.. ) this standardization actually is meant to help allow androids to be given emergency help in a timely manner .

Cassians do have some non-standard builds but generally the brain ( designed after the human one sits in the skull ) Malati drove her blade into the MACCs junction and severed her own spine. The power feedback is what killed her instantly.

MOST Andriods who expect combat get a "skull armoring system" made of Carbon Biphase Dualloy making the brain-case one of the toughest locations on a Android to damage a direct shot with a MK 3 weapon and lower will not damage the brain in any way.

Now the eyes and senses are another thing.

Drones and Robots can have there SID core anywhere the anatomy allows it.

Well, it looks like the gate is now open. Drastic measures to get through a massive gate always seem to be called for. After all, "one does not simply walk into Mordor."

Indeed :D

♫Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time,
I feel alive, and the world it's turning inside out, yeah!
I'm floating around in ecstasy, so,
Don't stop me now, don't stop me-
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time!

I'm a shooting star leaping through the sky,
Like a tiger, defying the laws of gravity,
I'm a racing car, passing by like Lady Godiva,
I'm gonna go, go, go,
There's no stopping me!

I'm burning through the sky, yeah!
Two hundred degrees,
That's why they call me Mrs. Fahrenheit,
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light,
I wanna make a supersonic stain out of you,

You, Deckhead - you, Deckhead - you, Deckhead...♫

On the bright side, we did NOT get to see him grow old, fat and pass out on the bathroom floor, after suffering for some time of high blood pressure, liver damage and an enlarged colon.

Bidi has an explosive reaction to everything, except hot girls. :D
velvetsanity 29th Jul 2015, 1:33 PM edit delete reply

Bidi has an explosive reaction to hot girls...a different, more pleasurable sort of explosive reaction of the sort that leaves underwear dripping wet, but still :D
Dragonrider 29th Jul 2015, 4:46 PM edit delete reply

@velvetsanity knowing how much Bidi loves things that go BOOM in the night (and day) would offer good odds her panties were dripping wet by the time she pushed the go button.

Seconded, Mark. They are doing an awesome job on the redo pages. I enjoyed the original pages enough to keep reading the story for sure; however, CentComm's art has improved and Rose has added layers to the dialogue. :-)

And then ... the Mockingbird chapter.
Centcomm 30th Jul 2015, 8:24 PM edit delete reply

Oh .. you just WAIT till I redo that.. If it does not send chills down your spine than ive failed.. Art wise there will be major revisions - story wise only a few points will change .. when we first did it we hadn't finalized a lot of the world building about androids . and we now have .. SO those will be taken into account :D also Ray and Minx have gotten major upgrades sense mockingbird so they will look even better Im hoping :D
Sheela 30th Jul 2015, 8:41 PM edit delete reply

Nice to hear that.

How far do you intent to go with the remastered pages ?
I'm guessing up to where you change from single frames into pages at least, but what about after that ?
Ranger Logrin does look quite a lot different in the cast pages, than in the comic.
AeonOfTime 30th Jul 2015, 2:59 AM edit delete reply
Somehow I managed to misread "So give her a party!" as "So give her a panty!". I blame it on those awesome 50 pages you've redone :)

So, errrm, I suppose Rose gets a party with a panty as bonus.

Dammit, now I got a very weird mental image of what just happened !

Centcomm : Hey Rose, our commenteers are weird.
Tokyo Rose : If by weird you mean awesome, then I agree.
Centcomm : No, I mean weird!
Tokyo Rose : What have they done now?
Centcomm : They're throwing a Panty Party because we have remastered the first 50 pages.
Tokyo Rose : Told you, awesome.
Centcomm : They are japanese schoolgirl panties.
Tokyo Rose : Totally awesome.
Centcomm : They have initials embroidered on them, they are not just some they bought from a shop.
Tokyo Rose : Epically awesome.
Centcomm : This means they stole them from some girls laundry.
Tokyo Rose : Astronomically Epically Awesome!
Centcomm : The initials are T.R.
