Aw... poor Ari...

Right. Four of my favorite ladies in comics, onward to the crazy AI that's gonna save everyone from the crazy Imperator! :D

I just wonder hat subtext will be transmitted from Dolly to CeCi to stun or knock out Arianna and she'll find herself waking up slung over a shoulder as they go through the last door.

Hrm, sounds like a missed a spammer ?

This is what would seem to be an Oh Shit moment. Part of Ceci' hidden agenda is revealed,and Arianna wigs out. Time for her to find a pair of Big Girl panties and soldier on, however as has been suggested I imagine she will. go as a bag of unconsciousness. Sorry to hear about the spam problem, would have thought we left that behind with AOL.

The Old Scribe 3rd Nov 2015, 10:27 PM edit delete reply

Sounds like a certain spammer needs their fingers massaged with a ball peen hammer.

Ari needs to be stunned and brought along. They can't leave her behind to be tortured and/or killed. The poor thing's mortally traumatized, but she's holding up the escape.
Stormwind13 4th Nov 2015, 5:32 AM edit delete reply

Yeah Old Scribe. If Arianna stays behind and gets caught, it could be BAD. Dolly has been talking about operational info, so Arianna could give up a TON of information if caught and persuaded . So not good.
rfaramir 5th Nov 2015, 8:29 AM edit delete reply
I hope she can get back to Democlus in time to help him... Or at least be with him in his final minutes. :feelz:
DLKmusic 3rd Nov 2015, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

well, I Guess I won't be posting from work during the weekends anymore, but I suppose that's a small price to pay for seeing the world become a better place.

Arianna, you aren't supposed to be the problem!?!?!

I still am dreading how Aeneus is going to react to a black angel on his doorstep, though.
Mark_L_A 4th Nov 2015, 11:59 AM edit delete reply

DLK you could always use private browsing so you can login from work. Unless your workplace network disallows that.
DLKmusic 4th Nov 2015, 4:39 PM edit delete reply

Unfortunately, it does. We can't log into any external database from work unless specifically work related. Not even personal email.

It's fine though. Not posting while I'm at work isn't the end of the world, but Cent and Rose losing control of the comments board which has, up to this point, been a wonderful place to exchange thoughts and humor with everyone, kinda is....
Mark_L_A 4th Nov 2015, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

Ahh I understand.
Thormation 3rd Nov 2015, 11:26 PM edit delete reply

Looks like Dolly still hasn't twigged onto the fact that Ceci is not herself yet. I wonder how much more ruthlessness and lies she's going to have to show before Dolly gets the hint.
xpacetrue 4th Nov 2015, 12:47 AM edit delete reply

Indeed. CeCi continues to call her "Dolly" instead of her more normal "Mommy."

It could be that Dolly is too focused on the situation to catch on. That, or perhaps Dolly -did- notice, but she's choosing not to question CeCi about it at this time. Maybe she plans to be more observant of CeCi to see what she does. Dolly is pretty old, even for an andy. She may be a sly old fox.
HiFranc 3rd Nov 2015, 11:36 PM edit delete reply

Working out how to react to Arianna is going to be a test of Acantha's leadership skills.
rfaramir 5th Nov 2015, 8:33 AM edit delete reply
A wise leader will use this to achieve ends she thought were otherwise impossible: helping Democlus if that is at all possible. And maybe get a message to the rebels.

Do NOT insist on having your own way, Acantha. That doesn't end well. Hopefully, she'll see her brother in that impulse.
Timotheus 3rd Nov 2015, 11:55 PM edit delete reply

It's amazing how many things I'm already registered on that are connected to other sites I'm interested in that I'm unaware of the linkages. I didn't know I was signed up here.
cattservant 4th Nov 2015, 12:31 AM edit delete reply

CeCi thinks it is a good idea...
Stormwind13 4th Nov 2015, 5:12 AM edit delete reply

CentComm has her own agenda, catt. I'm just wondering what it might be, and how it involves Aeneas.
cattservant 4th Nov 2015, 6:58 PM edit delete reply

Earlier in story there was indication
that Aeneas and TR had some resistance
to CentComm in the works.
mjkj 4th Nov 2015, 1:11 AM edit delete reply

Oh, Arianna...

...seems like she stays and gets Demo back to health...

So, it seems that fits with non-CeCi's hidden directive...

Well, let us see how that goes...

PS: sad too hear - I hope you can allow guest posts again soon, Cent...

Matt Knab 4th Nov 2015, 2:10 AM edit delete reply

You'd rather stay behind and die?
That's kind of a lose/lose scenario. Might want to rethink your stubbornness.
DLKmusic 4th Nov 2015, 3:37 AM edit delete reply

with all the Anti-Technology propaganda that has been filling the minds of the citizens of Nova Roma over the past 80 years, Ariannas fears and stubbornness really isn't that unreasonable.

This is just the second time we readers have seen first hand that fear and prejudice, but my guess is that most people in Nova Roma would rather walk through a pit full of Cobra's then go where she is being ordered to go.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 2:55 PM edit delete reply

She would MUCH rather have the cobras
Hornet 4th Nov 2015, 7:15 AM edit delete reply
Am I still welcome?
Stormwind13 4th Nov 2015, 8:04 AM edit delete reply

If you are polite to the commenters and not disrespectful to the comic then I would think you would be welcome, Hornet.

At least you aren't filling the comments with garbage and then posting Have fun CentComm deleting all my posts. I hope Comic Fury can send the police to visit him. Cyberbullying is a crime in the US.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 1:33 PM edit delete reply

Yes - You are still welcome Hornet. I dislike shutting off the guest comments but i had no choice.
sigpig 4th Nov 2015, 8:05 AM edit delete reply

Don't forget that on top of Ariana's fears, she just heard about the death of Democles and the possible death of Maxus and Irene - all to the Cassians. With everything that has transpired, Ari may have already passed her breaking point. Everybody has one, and it affects everyone differently.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 5:45 PM edit delete reply

Arianna just hit hers .. trust me.
chk 4th Nov 2015, 9:33 AM edit delete reply

Is Ceci being cooperative with Acantha or Cent-Comm? The Dastardly Duo have something up their combined sleeves, no doubt. I'm on the figurative edge of my equally figurative seat (as usual).

As for the 'Mommy' v 'Dolly' issue, I don't think it is of any consequence (albeit I've been wrong a lot). They are past the infiltration stage and she has no need to keep up her 'I'm just a cute love-doll' persona. It's down to serious business.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

Dolly is not making a big deal about Ceci's erratic behavior She HAS noticed it but shes assuming Ceci is in Combat mode and has discarded all the little quirks in favor of a Get the job done mentally. She also KNOWS Ceci is a black angel with all that entails good and bad.
chk 4th Nov 2015, 5:52 PM edit delete reply

Yep. It will, no doubt, prove interesting.
Sheela 4th Nov 2015, 6:02 PM edit delete reply

Besides, CeCi hasn't acted that out of character just yet.
RPET 4th Nov 2015, 9:36 AM edit delete reply
I like this comic, I just don't get why some think they have to get rude with it.
chk 4th Nov 2015, 4:50 PM edit delete reply

Unfortunately there as many assholes in the cyber world as in the real world. The world wide web just lets them spread their hate and discontent further and faster.
Rms2000 4th Nov 2015, 10:14 AM edit delete reply

I missed something. Who is this troll? I don't know what he said, but it must have been pretty bad to catch CentComm's ire like this. Also, if he's spamming the comic pages like crazy, would it be rude to counter-hack him? 'Cause I learned some tricks from this hacker community that I'm dying to try out, but I haven't found anyone who deserves the attention yet.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 1:36 PM edit delete reply

The little shit basicly came onto the comic page two days ago and posted a fairly rude comment - I wound up reporting the little fucker and CF dealt with him. ( proably a nasty PM or a warning ) So then he came back and posted something else insulting and shitty so i deleted that - then he posted a crap ton of one word guest comments SO i shut down guest comments on my comics to stop him for now. anyway thats what happened.
Sheela 4th Nov 2015, 6:03 PM edit delete reply

Oh .. HIM.
jamie59 4th Nov 2015, 6:23 PM edit delete reply

There's always one who's only desire is to screw things for everyone else.

Do every thing you need Cent.
Mark_L_A 4th Nov 2015, 12:02 PM edit delete reply

Can someone pm me the IP of the spammer? I have a friend who can do wonderful things with it.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 1:33 PM edit delete reply

I would love to .. I dont know it though.
Mark_L_A 4th Nov 2015, 4:46 PM edit delete reply

That sux. Would CF have that info? If it become a problem for other creators CF might want to file a C&D complaint with the IP server Administration.
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 5:47 PM edit delete reply

They might .. I highly doubt they would give it to me though,
Sheela 4th Nov 2015, 6:04 PM edit delete reply

Besides, two wrongs don't make a right.
Mark_L_A 5th Nov 2015, 7:46 PM edit delete reply

How would it be wrong Sheela? The person I'd give the IP to is US Federal Law Enforcement. If someone is doing something like spamming comment sections out of petty spite, there might be other issues going on with them.

That' how a certain murderer whom I refuse to name started out and nobody reported his behavior before he took a gun and killed some people.

I'd much rather be on the safe side with sickos and weirdos.
Cal 4th Nov 2015, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
Dear sweet dread Cthulhu... can we sic Douche's Royal Guards on the spammer, just because? Or maybe send a Cassian or three?

Aside from that nonsense... Aeneas is going to have some demigod proportions by the time they get there.
CptKerion 4th Nov 2015, 2:28 PM edit delete reply
Please correct me if I'm wrong, and Rose, I apologize for reminding you of its existence, but I think Maxus's character page entry is in need of an update, seeing as how, at least if I am remembering right, the praetorian guard are the blueberries and I don't think he is in charge of them in the present canon.
Tokyo Rose 4th Nov 2015, 4:11 PM edit delete reply


(see, another reason why I hate the fucking cast page; not only is it Spoiler Central, the characters and their roles change and evolve so much that it stops even being accurate.)
CptKerion 4th Nov 2015, 4:54 PM edit delete reply
Then why not remove or or completely revamp it?

If you want, I have a thought on how you could organize it to minimize spoilers (basically, if you get spoilers, it is your own damn fault under the system).

EDIT: thought for you, why not just names, pictures, some stats about them, and a fun fact about them?
Centcomm 4th Nov 2015, 5:48 PM edit delete reply

a lot of people really like the cast page. and well.. Rose hates it but I have not seen any negative response to it as of yet.
Sheela 4th Nov 2015, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

Eh, sometimes Rose even hate the comic itself ... like that one time, in bandcamp, when Lynn got her ovaries pierced and one egg was sampled, and everyone made crazy theories about it?

... she hated that bit. >_<
chk 4th Nov 2015, 6:57 PM edit delete reply

Yeah. She kinda did.
CptKerion 4th Nov 2015, 9:38 PM edit delete reply
Honestly, what I'd really recommend to clean up the biggest trouble would be to just organize it chronologically, with a "first appearance" marked and just color code to denote affiliations.
DLKmusic 5th Nov 2015, 3:13 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but things like that ALWAYS happen in Bandcamp, Sheela....
KarToon12 4th Nov 2015, 2:42 PM edit delete reply

So sorry that you got bombed with so many bad messages. :( Hopefully, this person will take the hint and leave.

Yeah apparently I got the double dose of troll this time.
chk 4th Nov 2015, 6:11 PM edit delete reply

I suspect that most serious commenteers won't have a problem registering with Comic Fury. It takes a couple of minutes and you can have all the comics you follow waiting for you every time you log in. It's my favorite site.
Timotheus 4th Nov 2015, 9:57 PM edit delete reply

I didn't remember I was registered on it until I looked into registering on it. I'm getting s-o-o o-l-d.
DLKmusic 5th Nov 2015, 3:18 PM edit delete reply

Welcome to the SOP club, Timotheus! (society of old people).

I tell people I'm not getting old and I'll argue the point further after I've had my nap.
highlander55 4th Nov 2015, 7:22 PM edit delete reply

Arianna will be a pile of mush if forced to go any further. Her mind will probably turn off due to over whelming fear even though she is human. Something she may never recover from the rest of her life.
Boren 4th Nov 2015, 10:48 PM edit delete reply

Sad to hear you had problems Cent, on the plus side I now have locked this name on CF and you will know this is me every time lol

It's a week late, but I ran across something that I just had to share with the commenters - Dr. Silver's halloween shirt
DLKmusic 5th Nov 2015, 3:15 PM edit delete reply

Can we get a Thanksgiving shirt too? Maybe a picture of Decimus's head, and underneath saying....

"Turkey. It's what's for Dinner!"
Mark_L_A 5th Nov 2015, 7:53 PM edit delete reply

Oh Crud. I just realized now Anon Coward can't post. And I REALLY like his/her comments. Though I tend to believe AC is a Male. AC does have some really insightful comments most of the time, plus throws out some gigglers.
Stormwind13 5th Nov 2015, 8:40 PM edit delete reply

Good job you two. The second panel, I can FEEL Acantha's emotions. She seems to be on the edge of falling into a deep dark HOLE, if no one will listen to her.

Acantha REALLY needs a mother's hug. ::Looking at Dolly::
