Someone should eliminate him.
Centcomm 18th Nov 2012, 10:25 PM edit delete reply

you are proably correct there :D

Billboard i saw a couple years back.

Coffin with flowers.

"He beat her 150 times. She only got flowers once."
Fairportfan 18th Nov 2012, 10:39 PM edit delete reply

Heh. If you search Google Images on "she only got flowers once" three or four of the top hits go to this page.

We are amused.
Centcomm 18th Nov 2012, 11:57 PM edit delete reply

saw that.. pretty sad huh.
Draginbeard 18th Nov 2012, 10:59 PM edit delete reply

The whole page is excellent. The dialog is unnerving. I know far too many women who could relate to this.

There is a series of twisted factories somewhere cranking out defective, abusive people.

Check the link in my second post above for, among other things, what inspired Goffin and King to write "(He Hit Me And) It Felt Like a Kiss"...
Centcomm 18th Nov 2012, 11:56 PM edit delete reply

Yes sadly Acanthas story isnt all that far fetched. Lynn however has no wish to see it end like so many do.

@Draginbeard- Thanks Rose did a fantastic job with the dialouge. she kept the gest of my proto-script but she really brought the point home.

Men, too.

Absolute despotism works great until a psycho becomes despot. And eventually, he will. Peisistratos has to pass on his crown to someone, and all his yes-men won't be able to tell him that his son is wack.
Rashala 19th Nov 2012, 12:08 AM edit delete reply

Yeah....Acantah needs an icepack.....and an ICEPICK under her pillow from now on.
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 5:47 AM edit delete reply

heh - Indeed.. just wait.
Rashala 19th Nov 2012, 2:56 PM edit delete reply

Or better yet a small Panic button that only Kali and CO can hear if Deci gets a little drunky and worse again
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 2:58 PM edit delete reply

that might be a good idea .. and by CO you mean Maxus?
Rashala 19th Nov 2012, 3:57 PM edit delete reply

yeah him
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 4:01 PM edit delete reply

heheh... dont sound so thrilled :D
cattservant 19th Nov 2012, 3:26 PM edit delete reply

Or a pseudo pskunk psystem unit...

What seems to be circular logic is, more often than not, actually a descending spiral.
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 5:46 AM edit delete reply

yep thats so true!
Death2Bravo 19th Nov 2012, 4:59 AM edit delete reply

Great dialogue. And nothing better to offer than a cold pack? I'm disappointed in the future. :D
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 5:46 AM edit delete reply

to be fair.. Lynn kinda stopped before she offered anything more they didnt have. dont worry. :D
McHozers 19th Nov 2012, 7:46 AM edit delete reply

Nice page. Good drama and as always excellent visuals.
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 7:48 AM edit delete reply

Danke - I know the scene is taking a while hopfully no one minds this isnt something we can just rush though , thank you for the compliment !

RE: tt; The situation is re-equilibrating...

Big rock of experience.
Dropped into the pool of existence.
Waves of disturbance momentarily subsiding.
But the rock is still in the pool,
The levels are that much higher.
And therefore, that much closer
To spilling over the rim.

KarToon12 19th Nov 2012, 4:18 PM edit delete reply

Lynn's got a good point. I love how the roles of "big sister" and "little sister" between these two keeps reversing, depending on the situation.
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 4:22 PM edit delete reply

Im really glad that aspect is coming though. on a side note

"technicly most of Acanthas "adult" behavior is a pure act. shes only 16 Lynn is Technicly the more mature. when shes not freaking out."
Rashala 19th Nov 2012, 5:27 PM edit delete reply

Hmm I am guessign No Ho ho's and Twinkies in the future huh

cept ones already made un eaten....and still fresh after 4 centuries
cattservant 19th Nov 2012, 5:31 PM edit delete reply

After all this time and plague and radiation the Ho Hos must have become Oh Ohs!
Now they live in the Waste as feral attack pickle predators.
Fairportfan 19th Nov 2012, 8:28 PM edit delete reply

"After the Apocalypse, all that will remain will be cockroaches, Twinkies and the lingering scent of cat pee ... and Keith Richards."
cattservant 19th Nov 2012, 8:38 PM edit delete reply

I believe you are right!
Dragonrider 19th Nov 2012, 5:44 PM edit delete reply

Lynn either has so advanced studies in Psyc or she is speaking from watching mommy and ever absent dad. Too tired to get too philosophical tonight
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

actually .. its also just good ole Tri-V for her .. and "info-net" browsing
Kuratenshi 19th Nov 2012, 6:04 PM edit delete reply
@Rashala: Considering the guys who make twinkies are 'gone' in just the past few days, it would actually be a 1813 year old potentially radioactive twinkie. Don't think we'd need to worry about bioweapons though, they usually need something with at least some nutritional value to survive on.

@Fairportfan: Are you really David Weber's older bro? If so, tell him I absolutely love all his work, and STOP TROLLING ME WITH CLIFFHANGERS. Both the honorverse and safehold have me screaming for more after every book.

Finally caught up on this comic. Lost track of it years ago and only found it a couple days ago by reading the comments of "Never Mind the Gap". Love this comic and how the characters grow, develop, and grow on you. Decimus is an excellent character. Even while hating him, I notice how a lot of the comments on here can be paraphrased as "what the HELL is his malfunction?!" Please keep up the amazing work.

oh wow ! welcome back! - I left a message on the old comic gen site - im so glad you found it again ! and thank you for coming back - there is a subscribe function on comic fury and its freeeee! :D
Fairportfan 19th Nov 2012, 8:32 PM edit delete reply

Yes. Yes i am. I just saw him (and my twin Cambodian-orphan niceces) for the first time in several years at DeepSouthCon in June, and at our mother's funeral in August. Even though we only live 150 miles apart, neither of us does much traveling these days.

(And you can thank me for introducing him to Toni Weisskopf, his editor/publisher at Baen Books).


Let me rephrase that - neither of us does much traveling to where the other is likely to be. He was leaving for Poland for a convention the day after DSC ended...)
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 9:08 PM edit delete reply

O_O oh wow , My condolences :/
yay for editors !

thank you for shareing that Fairport. if I recall you have been a long time fan of DC and you have my thanks :D

did I alreay say that the bastard prince should die? Did I also say he should die very very painfully?
Fairportfan 20th Nov 2012, 10:18 PM edit delete reply

"Wesley must die. Painlessly, if absolutely necessary."

She almost said "my slave", didn't she? I wonder what happened to her...
antrik 7th Oct 2016, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
(I *suspect* Lord Headcase abused and murdered here, after which Acantha never wanted another one...)
Centcomm 7th Oct 2016, 7:28 PM edit delete reply

Ding right on the head..
