... i hope im not wrong,, panel 2, Katya don't haz a collar.!!
Centcomm 13th Jun 2017, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

that is correct.. no collar no cuffs. :D
Sheela 15th Jun 2017, 8:54 AM edit delete reply

She's gonna be *so* envious of Dusty's awesome collar, just you wait and see.
Maybe she can get a new one, maybe one with colors on it. >_<

How are you going to keep them down on the farm after they've seen Paree?!
Centcomm 13th Jun 2017, 9:32 PM edit delete reply

good point!
Stormwind13 14th Jun 2017, 6:05 AM edit delete reply

I don't think Katya cares for Paree particularly, catt. She just wants food to eat and a warm place to sleep, I think. Katya would get along great with Mira as neither needs all of civilization's trappings to be happy.

Having her sister will just be icing on the cake.
megados 13th Jun 2017, 9:07 PM edit delete reply

Katya is happy again! I'm glad she can go live with Dusty. They have a lot to catch up on!

Everyone seems very happy! It's good to see. :)

Correction: it's a freaking GREAT page! Thank you!

Also, it sounds like your news is more good than ok, so it's good to hear. :)
Centcomm 13th Jun 2017, 9:32 PM edit delete reply

hehe thanks mega.. and yes its ok.
megados 14th Jun 2017, 7:24 AM edit delete reply

Well, I know you hate all ze maths, but I see it as: If good=10, and ok=5, and bad=0, and half the news is good, and half is ok, that averages out to 7.5 which is better than halfway from ok to good. Best I can do without knowing what is good and what is OK.

Yes I'm being a pedantic schnitz. :)
Mark_L_A 13th Jun 2017, 9:51 PM edit delete reply

Thankee for the page, what is the news from Mayo?

You said some bad some good? Feel up to talking about it yet?
Mudge 13th Jun 2017, 10:08 PM edit delete reply
Uh, she said "a mixed bag of good and ok." No mention of the word "bad."
Mark_L_A 16th Jun 2017, 8:11 PM edit delete reply

when my Dr says I've got good news and ok news it usually means more spine injections instead of the surgery I've been asking for for the last 3 years.
Cal 13th Jun 2017, 10:13 PM edit delete reply
Sleep good...

May we all be so lucky.

Heart and hopes with you both, ladies.
DLKmusic 13th Jun 2017, 10:22 PM edit delete reply

A happy ending? Am I reading the right comic?

Seriously, I'm glad you're feeling better, Terri! Anytime you want to share, you have a full auditorium of people who wish you well!
velvetsanity 13th Jun 2017, 11:23 PM edit delete reply

A happy ending for Katya, yes.
Stormwind13 14th Jun 2017, 6:16 AM edit delete reply

I have to wonder at the speed that they are dispatching Katya though. Is it ONLY because Maxus is a good man? Or could it be that someone (a Douchimus supporter) might try to grab her?

Katya isn't overly intelligent, but we know she has a memory. What secrets has she overheard in Douchimus' presence that might be teased out of her? There might be some real grenades locked away in her head.

Getting her away quickly might be for the safety of Nova Roma first!
megados 14th Jun 2017, 7:34 AM edit delete reply

Stormwind, I was under the impression that Dolly had communicated to Maxus that she had promised to Dusty that she would rescue Katya. Once she was incapacitated by Kali, she was no longer able to do so herself. I don't know if that was Maxus' only motivation, but I thought it was his main one.
Stormwind13 14th Jun 2017, 7:58 AM edit delete reply

You're correct, megados, Dolly did tell Maxus. I was just wondering if the speed that he was moving with had other motives besides reuniting the sisters. Maxus frequently thinks ahead after all. :-)
megados 14th Jun 2017, 8:09 AM edit delete reply

Hmm, well she wouldn't have to remember anything. All it would take is someone that THINKS she knows something to put her in harms way. Maxus may be thinking of that, but I'm not sure Katya crossed his mind before Dolly mentioned her. There are all kinds of slaves, staff, and personnel besides Katya more likely to be able to articulate useful information, I might think. 'Course, I might be off in left field again. :)
Stormwind13 14th Jun 2017, 11:33 AM edit delete reply

My thinking was that Katya was CHAINED to the throne. She was always there with superior hearing even.

Douchimus pretty much discounted her presence (see Programmed... from 3 November 2007). There he was talking about his plans with Kali. Over the years, who knows what he said in front of Katya.
antrik 14th Jun 2017, 11:46 AM edit delete reply
@Stormwind13 see discussion on previous story page: when I suggested that Katya's position with the Prince *might* be considered a problem, @Tokyo Rose clearly stated that it isn't.
megados 14th Jun 2017, 5:16 PM edit delete reply

@antrik, Rose only stated that Katya couldn't really be relied upon as a source of political information. She couldn't relate things she doesn't understand. A lot of political machinations tax even some of the best minds.
Tokyo Rose 15th Jun 2017, 5:36 AM edit delete reply

Maxus wants to get Katya into a situation where she'll be safe and well-looked-after. Dolly asked that he do so, since she wasn't able to fulfill Dusty's request. Getting Katya into Dusty's care means that she'll be one less helpless person that he has to worry about in the confusion that is Nova Roma right now.
Deoxy 14th Jun 2017, 7:13 AM edit delete reply
Terri is obviously NOT feeling better... and the proof is this happy ending. Clearly, she is not herself... :-)
Stormwind13 14th Jun 2017, 8:08 AM edit delete reply

Don't count your happy ending just yet, Deoxy. I'm put in mind of Colonel Blake's leaving the 4077th. Shot down and killed on the way home. That would have some symmetry with the START of the story. :-p
Deoxy 14th Jun 2017, 2:45 PM edit delete reply
That was so amazingly wonderful/terrible. Doing something like that to an innocent like her would be... oh, no... exactly the sort of thing you would do to your readers! :-)
Sheela 15th Jun 2017, 9:03 AM edit delete reply

Go into any warzone and give the commander of the place a solution to a potential big problem, and he will be positively happy to make it happen.
Dolly gave Maxus a solution to the Katya problem on a silver platter, while he already have a thousand other problems to worry about.
To have someone deliver a solution to the Katya problem, is probably the best news Maxus' has had all day.
And his lover seems happy about it too, bonus!
HiFranc 13th Jun 2017, 11:11 PM edit delete reply

I'm guessing that one reason that Dusty was so concerned was because of Katya's mental age. I'm guessing that Dusty was her protector.
Sheela 15th Jun 2017, 9:15 AM edit delete reply

No, no, Bearfriend was her protector.
Bearfriend is so brave!
And strong!
Bearfriend don't even need special go-outside medicine or anything!
HiFranc 13th Jun 2017, 11:15 PM edit delete reply

I hope that you continue to get better news.

* Hugs you *

And yet, for Katya, despite the best intentions of the good guys, it will all go horribly wrong.

Rashala 13th Jun 2017, 11:44 PM edit delete reply

Centy I speak from experience take any doctor visit that is just good and OK and no helpings of bad and worse and call it a win!
mjkj 13th Jun 2017, 11:50 PM edit delete reply

Great she will be visiting her sister :)

...and great to hear nothing bad crept up, Cent =)

HeSerpenty 14th Jun 2017, 1:08 AM edit delete reply

Awwww she is precious <333

I am glad they are taking care of her!
Centcomm 15th Jun 2017, 12:56 PM edit delete reply

I know right!
Matt 14th Jun 2017, 3:35 AM edit delete reply
Did she just drink the Kool Aid?
Sheela 15th Jun 2017, 9:04 AM edit delete reply

The Kool Aid was too slow to get away from her !

The red laser dot, however.
One day she will catch it!
Romfire 14th Jun 2017, 4:27 AM edit delete reply
Ahhhh, just a feel good moment.
Stormwind13 14th Jun 2017, 4:49 AM edit delete reply

Glad the news wasn't bad, CentComm.

And YAY for new page! Looks good. Thank you. :-)
chk 14th Jun 2017, 8:57 AM edit delete reply

I'm with Stormwind. Great page and good news.

Re: vaccinations - Rabies, feline distemper, etc...

I'm so glad that you didn't get any "bad" news from Mayo, Terri!
HiFranc 15th Jun 2017, 2:58 PM edit delete reply

Anti radiation stuff as well.
antrik 14th Jun 2017, 11:53 AM edit delete reply
Well, that seems to have taken her mind off the late Prince rather quickly ;-)
HiFranc 15th Jun 2017, 2:55 PM edit delete reply

She is a cat.
antrik 14th Jun 2017, 11:54 AM edit delete reply
I wonder, why does Katya's skin look so shiny in the third panel, while it appears more normal in the other ones?...
Centcomm 15th Jun 2017, 11:46 AM edit delete reply

the shaders for the G3 female are a bitch to work with not to mention shes using the same skin as her v4 version its just a glitch in conversions .. I couldnt fix it before i ran out of time
megados 15th Jun 2017, 5:33 PM edit delete reply

Hmm, I might have thought it was sunscreen for going outside! ;)
KarToon12 14th Jun 2017, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

"Everyone nice now. No yells or bad words."

That's happy and terrible at the same time...
Sheela 15th Jun 2017, 9:07 AM edit delete reply

She's so excited that she even mispelled her own name in that last panel.
Tokyo Rose 15th Jun 2017, 8:36 PM edit delete reply

Oh for fuck's sake. This is what we get for doing this shit on very short notice. *corrects*
Sheela 15th Jun 2017, 11:27 PM edit delete reply

Aw, I thought it was a cute misspelling, and in character too. :)
Ictuan 15th Jun 2017, 7:12 PM edit delete reply
Cent, I'm so glad you are doing better. Hopefully your mending will progress steadily. Now please make sure Katya has a happy ending as well. She has also suffered enough.
