Uh Oh......this does not bode well.

poor Galeatea...

I hope she has sent out a distress call...

@alt text: Galeatea has just called the man Reese - now the sneaky woman's name is Reese, too? 😲
(or did I misunderstand something here?)
Evervigilant 13th Apr 2022, 5:47 AM edit delete reply
Reading the last box of text this is how I see it. Dizz is crowbar girl who Reese apparently takes out after she hits Galatea thus the "wham unh clang!" Then Bruce steps in with his sword and apparently proceeds to get whipped which is why the guy with the gun is saying Bruce should be ashamed before becoming fed up with it all and apparently shooting Reese. That's how I read the last box and built a mental picture of what is going on. Not sure if I'm right or not.
Centcomm 13th Apr 2022, 6:54 AM edit delete reply

Dizz is indeed crowbar girl. Jacco is the gun thug.. and we know bruce.. as for what happened.. well we know as much as Galatia here. :P

ok I know what happened.. :P
robnot 13th Apr 2022, 6:51 AM edit delete reply
Galeatea, Reese,. gunman (no name), Bruce (sword), an Dizz (crowbar)..

reminder,, there is a floater bot above, recording all this...

Thank you all for the explanation πŸ’—πŸ™‚

At the risk of sounding clichΓ© Reese apparently never heard the old axiom that says don't bring fists to a gunfight. That "Blam" and his gasping cry of Galatea's name does not bode well. I always remember what a wise man once said. "Good.... Bad..... I'm the guy with the gun." Remember shop smart and shop S-Mart!
Centcomm 13th Apr 2022, 6:52 AM edit delete reply

this is true!
Lurker314 13th Apr 2022, 5:19 PM edit delete reply
But Grimjack taught us not to bring guns to a sword fight, either. It's important to keep in mind what tech works here.

Having said that, it *sounds* like guns work just fine here, so the the usual rules do apply.

The usual rule I'm missing is "diplomats don't go ANYWHERE in a foreign land without their bodyguards". Assuming that Galatea's...personal...needs caused her to skimp a bit on the usual protocols, I'm rather disappointed that the cavalry has been so slow...
megados 13th Apr 2022, 5:33 PM edit delete reply

Well, the cavalry might be just around the corner, depending on whose surveillance drone that is up above there.
Centcomm 14th Apr 2022, 5:51 AM edit delete reply

that was taken into consideration.
megados 13th Apr 2022, 5:06 AM edit delete reply

Welp, so much for my silly notion that crowbar girl was gonna help. :(

Wow! the new card really seems to help! look at all the BG and overall detail, as well as highlighting and overall light effects. Very Nice!
Centcomm 13th Apr 2022, 5:41 AM edit delete reply

Actually the scene corrupted itself to unuseability thus the fade to black the new card IS helping and ive gotten 2 more pages done in the time i could have only done one or half of one.
Guest 13th Apr 2022, 5:51 AM edit delete reply
I honestly think it ended up working to your advantage to have the fade to black and make us readers use our imaginations to visualize what is happening as we read the text. Sometimes less can be more and personally I think it works great here and builds tension.
megados 13th Apr 2022, 6:34 AM edit delete reply

I have to agree. The fade to black looks intentional, so I'd never have guessed it was a way out of an issue. It works well here!
Centcomm 13th Apr 2022, 6:52 AM edit delete reply

why thank you.. i got the idea for it while laying in bed cuddling my cat and half asleep worrying about how i was gonna fix the scene.
megados 13th Apr 2022, 9:48 AM edit delete reply

Cats always come up with the best ideas!
Rocket Fueled 13th Apr 2022, 12:48 PM edit delete reply

I agree, the fade to black scene worked very well and inspires the proper foreboding and fear of what's next.
Centcomm 13th Apr 2022, 12:49 PM edit delete reply

you have aslan to blame.. thank :D
Microraptor 13th Apr 2022, 5:08 AM edit delete reply

Whatever happened there, one thing is for sure...

Bruce fucked up again.
Centcomm 13th Apr 2022, 6:52 AM edit delete reply

yes he did..
Mac 13th Apr 2022, 10:19 AM edit delete reply
Well shoot, was hoping for something good happening. Should have known better .... lol
Centcomm 15th Apr 2022, 11:02 AM edit delete reply

we aim to misbehave...

W00t! New voting incentive.

A teaser of what's to come? Dark and scary! Is someone going to have a bad day?

Oh and Galeatea better be okay at the end of this, we only want harm to the bad guys.

So, … an android walks into a bar … CRUNCH! … WHAM! … CLANG!
Gilrandir 13th Apr 2022, 10:47 PM edit delete reply
It was at this point that Galatea sparked … and not in a good way.
Gilrandir 13th Apr 2022, 10:52 PM edit delete reply
Are we going to see Galatea uploaded to a Commander Pauline chassis? I understand one has recently become available. ^_^
Centcomm 15th Apr 2022, 11:02 AM edit delete reply

I think Ophelia is going to personal see to the destruction of that entire line.
Rashala 13th Apr 2022, 11:09 PM edit delete reply

I believe the following is Appropriate

It was at this moment they realized that they had farked up bigtime.
Evervigilant 14th Apr 2022, 4:41 PM edit delete reply
Yup! I"m thinking the same thing. the "shitwhistle" is about to hit the oscillating air mover.
Centcomm 15th Apr 2022, 11:01 AM edit delete reply

SPLAT!
Haegan2005 14th Apr 2022, 7:16 PM edit delete reply

I have to say that I watched Cent put the next set together. She did two versions and decided on the second one. I have to say that the preview was pretty awesome. But then I am a 3D geek so I freely admit a lot of bias in this!

I think we are all in for a treat.
Centcomm 14th Apr 2022, 7:18 PM edit delete reply

I think so! and i enjoyed showing ya!
Kiddeagle 15th Apr 2022, 11:46 AM edit delete reply
@Cent
That a warning or a promise?
Rocket Fueled 15th Apr 2022, 1:02 PM edit delete reply

My guess: "Yes."
Ictuan 15th Apr 2022, 4:41 PM edit delete reply
Ya! New Patreon Irays! I'm so glad the new video card is making this stuff fun again.

Someone needs to win the lottery and gift Cent a full new system powerful enough to produce her creations in a timely fashion. Or better yet Cent needs to win the lottery so that she can just enjoy life and have time bring her ideas to life.

Im not adverse to someone driving up a truck full of money..
megados 16th Apr 2022, 9:14 AM edit delete reply

You're not alone. A lot of people would be down with that. πŸ˜…

There is a wonderful joke about a guy praying to win the lottery every day for a month all the time and finally God gets fed up and says "At least help me out a little and buy a lottery ticket!β€œ

I personally consider lotteries and scratch off cards to be a stupidity tax. I mean sure in some states you can offset your winnings with your losses, but if you are doing that, you are still losing money for the most part.
