Tokyo Rose 15th Dec 2015, 9:00 PM edit delete
Tokyo Rose
Upon this day, some years ago, I was birthed unto the world. She who bore me would no doubt cheerfully agree that it is subtly appropriate that the observance of this day has now been marked with the publication of a line like "gift-bag full of dicks".

It's like leaving a dead bird to show that you care that the one you give the bird to is a terrible hunter?
Lukkai 16th Dec 2015, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

Soo... Does that mean that we stop Teedee from behaving badly with a short spray of water?

And happy birthday Rose!

OMG. I truly love this comic. You have me crying Im laughing so hard
Stormwind13 15th Dec 2015, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

Happy Birthday, Tokyo Rose. Hope you have a good day.

And now I will run away, so that TeeDee doesn't make any POSSIBLE mistakes.
Centcomm 15th Dec 2015, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

heheh Teedee yells .. Dont wear blue!
Sheela 16th Dec 2015, 11:03 AM edit delete reply

She would need tweezers and a magnifying glass to find Douchie's.

Don't wear blue? Good idea!
*removes blue jeans*
*sees blue boxers*
Ooooooooooh crap!

I actually I can take very little credit for the dialogue but it was a mutual decision that they both lived :D And yes you can have 3d merek :D

Happy Birthday Rose!

I really think that comes under the War Crimes Tribunal Classification of Desecration Of The Dead. Otherwise, ~~~~ROTFLMBFAO~~~~~ Yeppers, its certain, TeeDee's fallen in love. Ain't it grand?

Rose Happy Happy and many returns.
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:22 AM edit delete reply

That particular Tribunal passed long into dust about a thousand years ago in the great wars
ProfEtheric 15th Dec 2015, 9:35 PM edit delete reply


I am SO happy there is a chance the cameo soldiers might pull through (and not just because one of them is based on my character and the other is based on my fave SoO character). I mean, they need patched up, but that's better than dead.

And Teedee's gift idea... *shudders*.
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:23 AM edit delete reply

Well we hated just killing off ALL the poor rebels and Ada is well versed with Trauma injury ( it is her job after all )
mjkj 15th Dec 2015, 9:47 PM edit delete reply

Yayyy, they survived!!!

Oh, happy birthday, Rose. :)

Happy Birthday Rose!
The Old Scribe 15th Dec 2015, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

Happy Birthday Rose!!

The Cassians have been ordered to stand down? Noctis has been a busy girl.

Merek and Bishop are chewed up, but they will live. Good.

Hee! A bag of dicks. She should wait until she can add Doucheimus' cocktail weenie to the collection. Some of our guys in 'Nam collected bags of VC ears for reasons known only to them.
HiFranc 15th Dec 2015, 10:32 PM edit delete reply

I'm confused: They don't seem to have made any progress but they seem to be waiting. How did they TeeDee have a conversation with the Cassian?
Centcomm 15th Dec 2015, 10:37 PM edit delete reply

They are waiting for the Shattered door way and molten reamins to be safe enough to continue and Ada is using the time to provide Fist aid to Bishop and Merek :D
The Old Scribe 15th Dec 2015, 10:42 PM edit delete reply

Fist Aid? I thought that was TeeDee's department? (Just kidding) :D
Lukkai 17th Dec 2015, 2:22 PM edit delete reply

Nonono.. That's Last Rites, you're thinking of! ;)
Timotheus 15th Dec 2015, 10:36 PM edit delete reply

So, how many walls beyond the T-rail barrier have been breached by that pop gun? (It's hard to tell through all the flame.)
And happy post natal memorial date Rose.
Sheela 16th Dec 2015, 11:01 AM edit delete reply

Probably an explosive round, so it wouldn't breach, it would just go ka-boom on impact.
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:25 AM edit delete reply

It blew though the Security blast door and though six corridors and three offices.. So.. yeah .. It basically bored a hole all the way to the core of the palace. If she had fired it on a upper floor it would have exited the building :D

And its only mildly explosive. It mostly vaporizes material.
TheD-Wrek 15th Dec 2015, 10:45 PM edit delete reply

Happy B-Day, Rose! :)
xpacetrue 15th Dec 2015, 11:00 PM edit delete reply

Yes, Happy Birthday Rose!

Teedee's gift is gross... -_- But, I guess Bishop will appreciate it. Good for Bishop and Merek. (And I would assume their vox tech would sound human enough.)

Teedee: "That Cassian's Secured."

What does that mean, exactly? Did they tie her up? Or did they lock her in a closet or storage cabinet? Can she still move after that injury?
Timotheus 15th Dec 2015, 11:16 PM edit delete reply

Duk tape, obviously. Suitable for both first aid and security on a Cassian.
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:27 AM edit delete reply

Samanta cant move. Her legs and one arm are none functional. And she surrendered Teedee saw no reason to terminate her. And Ada would have been a bit upset if Teedee had killed a person who can not fight back .
Fairportfan 15th Dec 2015, 11:28 PM edit delete reply

That's our girl!

They're not gonna be using them any more...

i'm all about happy endings! great page girls!

I'm also all about happy beginnings! Happy Birthday Rose!
Visvires 15th Dec 2015, 11:48 PM edit delete reply
Happy birthday, Rose.

I guess Merek's survival answers the questions we were tossing about regarding armor utility. I'd written those two off. 0_0

Two minutes, TeeDee. How many can you collect?

Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:29 AM edit delete reply

Teedee Snaps open her vibro blade. " Lets find out "

Ada : oh god Teedee .. REALLY?!?!?
Speedy 29th Mar 2017, 5:03 PM edit delete reply
TeeDee: "Hey, look! I got enough to make a necklace! ... Oooo! I just had another idea!"

Ada: "No! You may NOT use their sacks to make purses!"

TeeDee: "But, but, I was gonna sell them on Fifth Avenue!"
Mark_L_A 15th Dec 2015, 11:58 PM edit delete reply

Happy Anniversary of your entrance into this world and your first rotation around the star at the center of our solar system MiLady Rose.

I like how Ada is "Trying" to shut TeeDee down here. I doubt it works though. :)

Glad I wear mostly Black, Khaki or Olive Drab.

I wonder if it takes a while to get used to a synthetic esophagus. I rather have a synthetic tongue, so I could stop burning it on pizza. (oh and a 'roof of my mouth' protector) XD

Hahaha! Bag of dicks! XDXDXD
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:29 AM edit delete reply

Mind you New Troy tech would be better for rebuilding her neck But Roma can do wonders with Bio Tech.
Speedy Marsh 29th Mar 2017, 5:28 PM edit delete reply
Reminds me of a Grey's Anatomy episode, where they 3D printed an esophagus using the patient's own cells.

I can't remember exactly how they did it, but I think it was something like they printed a flexible, porous, biodegradable latticework in the shape of an esophagus. Then, brushed on a few of the patient's throat cells, and then kept some kind of nutrients flowing over it, till the cells multiplied enough to fill in the structure.

That may or may not not be real yet, but some body parts are printable now:
sigpig 16th Dec 2015, 7:52 AM edit delete reply

Happy birthday, TR!

I totally ship TeeDee with "Bishop". She seemed to actually be happy with Ada's news.

Re: alt-text - There are many of us who constantly feign hyper-confidence, if only to mask-over our very real feelings of inferiority. Sometimes, that causes us to be labeled as cocky, braggarts, or douche-bags. The thing is, while we FEEL incompetent or inferior, we actually ARE very good at what we do. We simply cannot believe that, even when the evidence is right in front of our faces. Ada looks (to me) as if she's coming down from a "combat high", where she turned into (literally) a killing machine. It does not surprise me that she has the jitters, especially since she loves humans, and she's wet-wired for the RESCUE portion of the NTSR...
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:30 AM edit delete reply

Good catch there Sig!
sigpig 16th Dec 2015, 3:42 PM edit delete reply

Thank you! What part? lol
Tokyo Rose 16th Dec 2015, 4:47 PM edit delete reply

It's not post-combat/post-shit-wrecking jitters; Ada's trying to put a good face on the conditions of Bishop and Merek. She knows just how bad off they are.

Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:31 AM edit delete reply

Heheh I know right .. Had a player that liked to collect " hats " So every bad guy with a helm he told . "I want that hat. You will give it to me. "

Thankfully he didn't keep the head.
Lukkai 17th Dec 2015, 2:28 PM edit delete reply

Everyone knows the importance of a good hat!

And remember: Any plan where you lose your hat is a bad plan!
pastutopia 16th Dec 2015, 10:11 AM edit delete reply

Nothing says "get well soon" like a bag of... yeah.

I suppose from an android point of view fixing broken things is usually more optimistic "Well, it's still alive*, we just replace all the parts that are busted and bam, fixed!"

Plus then they get cool cyborg perk points to spend, as long as they don't turn into sun glass wearing emo people (Deus cough Ex).
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:32 AM edit delete reply

hehe nice gig there on Dues EX :D

On a sidenote : Rank 10 !
How long did we have to stay at it to make Dr Silver // Major Ramesy's date happen ?

Umm we shall See! :D
mjkj 16th Dec 2015, 11:42 AM edit delete reply

Yayyy for rank 10 :)
Sheela 17th Dec 2015, 2:50 PM edit delete reply

Still Rank 10 !
Mark_L_A 16th Dec 2015, 11:37 AM edit delete reply

Number 10 currently, can we break through to 9 or 8?
Stormwind13 17th Dec 2015, 10:01 AM edit delete reply

Not easily, Mark. Just over 800 to take over 9th. Nearly 1900 to make it to 8th. So going to take LOTS of people voting to make up that.

So, if you like Data Chasers, please vote
for it!
chk 16th Dec 2015, 11:46 AM edit delete reply

A bag of dicks. Perfect gift for any occasion.

Eeeegh. Desecration of corpses does not make you look good in the aftermath of a battle. Those corpses will be recovered by Rome's already anti-synth citizens.
