Hmm. Well, perhaps Teedee has some fondness for it after all?
Sheela 17th Oct 2018, 3:35 PM edit delete reply

I'm thinking that we are looking at TeeDee being pragmatic, for once. :)
Rashala 19th Oct 2018, 12:03 AM edit delete reply

As much as teedee hated being in it, that body was still a lethal killing weapon and she'd never toss away a good weapon she's customized, though I imagine the times she actually uses that body willingly will stay in the low single digits til her retirement. So fondness no, practicality yes.
Sheela 21st Oct 2018, 3:54 PM edit delete reply

Hrm .. thinking of the Sprite body as a weapon, is just TeeDee's way of thinking.
megados 16th Oct 2018, 9:17 PM edit delete reply

TeeDee uses a phrase I often use: better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. (Now if I could only find it! >_< )

Sheela and DLKmusuc called it: she kept the body!
Oldarmourer 17th Oct 2018, 1:41 AM edit delete reply
My 'signature phrase' too :)

Wait … we can call it ?

This .. this explains SO MUCH !!

Heeere spritey-spritey, come get a cookie!

DLKmusic 17th Oct 2018, 4:36 PM edit delete reply

Here Spritey Spritey!
Good body, now here's the leash, you know how to take the doggie for a....

***Looks at Sheila*** WHAT?????

I don't know, I think TD May still be having some sort of sync problem because she sounds like a broken record.
Centcomm 17th Oct 2018, 2:27 AM edit delete reply

How so?
Just_IDD 17th Oct 2018, 3:54 AM edit delete reply
Well every one of the last three pages she's been asking if she's in the right freaking body. She should already know that she's in the correct chassis because what her connections are telling her.
HiFranc 17th Oct 2018, 4:18 AM edit delete reply

I think that it’s more lack of trust of CentComm.
Sheela 17th Oct 2018, 3:38 PM edit delete reply

Also, considering how badly wrong it went last time …

… TeeDee may be a little worried, and rightly so.
robnot 17th Oct 2018, 9:10 AM edit delete reply
.. so no love for the 12th doc....
and with out looking cant remember her name,, 4th panel with inhibitor, (rape victim) is now doc's (Silver) assistant..
robnot 17th Oct 2018, 9:35 AM edit delete reply
ok looked.. KLY-4016A Kelly .. horror show 224.
megados 17th Oct 2018, 11:13 AM edit delete reply

Yes it's her I think. I'm glad she's okay. That must've been very traumatic, at least it would be for a human. That has always had me wondering; do the DC androids experience trauma similarly? My guess would be that they do, since they do experience emotion.
Sheela 17th Oct 2018, 3:43 PM edit delete reply

Considering that the android consciousness is shaped after a human pattern, I think it's safe to say that they can experience trauma just fine.

That said, knowing that you can get a perfectly good replacement limb, would probably lower the physical-to-mental trauma by quite a bit.
Centcomm 17th Oct 2018, 9:32 PM edit delete reply

They do
megados 18th Oct 2018, 6:44 AM edit delete reply

OK, thanks; it's always good to have definitive information. :D

So then, that brings up another point: Is the device on her neck actually an inhibitor? (That would mean that they are OK in NT in some cases, as long as it's by 'prescription'.) Or possibly is it some kind of therapeutic/medical device to help with her trauma in some way? Combination of both maybe?

Hmmm, it might even be the current style; designer accessories! :D
robnot 18th Oct 2018, 7:41 AM edit delete reply
yes it is a inhibitor.. court appointed cuz she killed some thing. ..wood not call it human..
government an police use em only as necessary, even then they don't like it..
megados 21st Oct 2018, 5:14 AM edit delete reply

I think she was justified. I'd have done the same.
mjkj 17th Oct 2018, 1:18 PM edit delete reply

Oh, but there was a tiny glitch - that Doc overwrote...

yeah, keep the cute TeeDee body - you never know when you might need one - maybe TeeDee could talk to Ophie about body trauma... ;)

...and to have a backup is always a good idea =)
Sheela 17th Oct 2018, 3:47 PM edit delete reply

Heh .. they could start a support club !

TeeDee : "Hello, I am TeeDee and I suffer from reload issues, what with my body being WAY too small."
Ophelia : "Oh, oh .. me too!"
TeeDee : *eyes breasts* ... " 'small' is not the word that comes to mind."
Ophelia : "Oh come on!"
mjkj 22nd Oct 2018, 2:08 PM edit delete reply


TeeDee: ...and I lost my SLTs...
KarToon12 17th Oct 2018, 3:48 PM edit delete reply

Who is that on her T-shirt?
Sheela 17th Oct 2018, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

Hrn .. hard to see, what with the angle 'n' such.

Frankly, I would expect a Max Headroom shirt, but with the dynamic duo, you just never know.
megados 17th Oct 2018, 4:33 PM edit delete reply

Doesn't quite look like Max Headroom, (Matt Frewer) but that would be a good choice.
robnot 18th Oct 2018, 7:44 AM edit delete reply
hence my "no love for the doc." quote..
it's the 12th doctor who. Peter Capaldi
Thormation 18th Oct 2018, 1:23 PM edit delete reply

Doesn't look like Capaldi to me. If I had to guess, it would be either Peter Gabriel or Grand Moff Tarkin.
Ebonbolt 18th Oct 2018, 8:26 PM edit delete reply

Gregory House, M.D. aka Hugh Laurie (I'm not 100% sure, but that's who it looks like to me).
Keera 19th Oct 2018, 2:14 AM edit delete reply
It maybe Patrick McGoon from the TV show back in the 80’s “Prisoners, The” ( original ) or the lead singer from “Mechanic, The” song called “Can you hear me”
Sheela 19th Oct 2018, 10:04 PM edit delete reply

With all the wrinkles in the forehead, it could be Gordon Ramsey. XD
Speedy 1st Nov 2018, 11:45 AM edit delete reply
At first I thought that the wrinkles and enlarged forehead were due to boob stretch of the shirt, but it's probably because he's concentrating so hard on how he can get her to put the shirt on inside out. ;)
lalverson 17th Oct 2018, 4:59 PM edit delete reply
Looks to me like David Bowie.
stormbringer77 17th Oct 2018, 9:35 PM edit delete reply

I have to agree because I watched "Labyrinth" Saturday with my 5 yr old great niece,and the face does look like Bowie to me.
Ebonbolt 18th Oct 2018, 8:19 PM edit delete reply

Wait, wait, wait…

Teedee, being sentimental? Time to stock up on winter coats to sell to the devil…
jamie59 18th Oct 2018, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

Put it on ice brings up a hypothetical could a rich android keep several bodies & swap them at will?

Also Ada you got a date? You sure are dressed to impress.
megados 19th Oct 2018, 6:26 AM edit delete reply

I believe she does indeed have a date with Kevin.
Rashala 19th Oct 2018, 12:04 AM edit delete reply

Still feel intensely sorry and sympathetic to Kelly given what she endured, I really hope things get better for her/ happier.
Morituri 19th Oct 2018, 10:42 AM edit delete reply
I see that Kelly is still wearing an inhibitor collar. I understand that, even in New Troy where it's otherwise illegal, an android who has in fact killed somebody can be forced to wear one, as a precaution, or as part of what we'd consider a "work release" program for criminals.

But given what she endured, specifically because of and by means of an inhibitor collar, I'm sort of amazed that she's not constantly in a PTSD panic whenever something reminds her of what it is.
megados 19th Oct 2018, 5:42 PM edit delete reply

I can surely understand what you're saying; the collar was a big part of her trauma, but I think it's also possible that she realizes that it's just a thing, and the real problem was the dirtbag wielding it.
Bullwinkle 21st Oct 2018, 12:31 PM edit delete reply
Knowing doc Silver it's probably R.Daniel Olivlaw.
The first humaniform robot in Issac Asimov's the caves of steel.
knuut 23rd Oct 2018, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
More likely Daniel Olivlaw, R.Daniel's primary architect. Not that a casual observer could tell them apart.
megados 23rd Oct 2018, 2:56 PM edit delete reply

R. Daneel Olivaw?
knuut 23rd Oct 2018, 8:23 PM edit delete reply
Sorry, it's been more than 60 years since I read it. My spelling wasn't so good back then. I stand corrected.
megados 23rd Oct 2018, 9:26 PM edit delete reply

No need to apologize. :) I was asking (Bullwinkle) for clarity.
HeSerpenty 21st Oct 2018, 12:37 PM edit delete reply

Haha Ada.. like...why even WEAR a shirt? :P

Jk jk.. I'm glad TeeDee is in the body she prefers! It's about time! <3
Morituri 22nd Oct 2018, 6:16 PM edit delete reply
I know, right?

Definitely, definitely not "casual" wear. She has an evening planned.

Nice of her to take time out and come be with Teedee waking up.
robnot 23rd Oct 2018, 7:35 AM edit delete reply
@Morituri: nice,,? ,time out,,?. no these two love each other, (tho won't admit it.) that they would make time..they have an will give their life for the other.!!
megados 23rd Oct 2018, 9:09 AM edit delete reply

I'm with robnot on this. There's no way Ada would fail to be with TeeDee here at this time, no matter what.
robnot 23rd Oct 2018, 6:07 PM edit delete reply
yeah,, lets look at examples,, Ada hates killing. .she uses a stunner,, but wen Teedee is about to become paste on the wall,, FULL combat mode..or wen ejecting, she waited till she knew Teedee was safe..
an Teedee,, wen Ada was down an out...HELP ADA.!! even tho she was on fire an bout lose herself.!!!
Sheela 23rd Oct 2018, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

Ah, but they *do* love each other, but more in the line of sisters, than formal lovers.

It's a family thing, y'know ? :)
robnot 23rd Oct 2018, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
yes these two "Do" love each other,, an never said anything bout eros love...
Speedy 1st Nov 2018, 2:58 PM edit delete reply
I think Sheela is right, that they love each other like sisters. I think Ada did wear that shirt for Teedee, but only because it probably bugs Teedee as much as the baby talk does.

Since Teedee hates the sexy, squishy bodies, Ada is showing hers off as much as she can. She's almost literally rubbing Teedee's face in it. ... Wait... Um... What was I talking about?

Oh, yeah... I was gonna say that Ada can be quite running, like that. She probably has fun pushing Teedee's buttons in ways that Teedee doesn't even realize are intentional. Or, if she does, she can't prove that they were intentional, which would drive her even more crazy. (Ada is so good at pushing Teedee's buttons, that she doesn't even have to touch the D-pads on Teedee's new boobs)

Ada is using baby talk, to mess with Teedee's feelings about being "reborn". But, even that was done out of sisterly love. If Teedee is pissed off at Ada about the baby talk, she can't be feeling anxious about the body swap. Ada knows that being pissed off is Teedee's "happy place".
Guest 1st Nov 2018, 3:09 PM edit delete reply
*cunning, not running. Darn you autocorrect!

I've gotta stop being lazy, and get an account so I can edit.
Morituri 23rd Oct 2018, 8:10 PM edit delete reply
Of course these two love each other. But not in the kind of knockin' boots way that outfit says Ada's got planned with somebody (presumably her boyfriend since she's known to have one) tonight. They love each other in an entirely different way, which Ada is demonstrating here to be every bit as serious if not more so.
Speedy Marsh 1st Nov 2018, 3:46 PM edit delete reply
I think I'm about ready for a physical remount, too. This frame has about had it.

Problem is, I don't have one of those fancy, top-of-the-line mil-spec brain modules, so I can't remember where I left my spare body.
