How to win friends and influence people...

Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 9:10 PM edit delete reply

yup ! :D
cattservant 19th Nov 2012, 9:12 PM edit delete reply

That could apply to Lynn or Decimus in quite opposite directions!
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 9:26 PM edit delete reply

yes it could .. very easily.
McHozers 19th Nov 2012, 9:32 PM edit delete reply

Hard on his toys... Wow, that is creeping me out, cause I knew a guy once who was "hard on his toys" I won't elaborate too much... but police were involved... *shivers* bad flashback.... bad flashback...
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 9:38 PM edit delete reply

Sorry about that... I know some might find this stuff unsettling but we do tend to go for a brutal reality in somethings. and its very sad that Acantha. knows enough to use that line. shes seen far more than any 16 year old should. the coming days will reveal more and more..
McHozers 20th Nov 2012, 8:19 AM edit delete reply

The sad thing is, when I say hard on his toys... I actually mean toys... it was totally f'd up.

Okay the sollution is easy Tranq Deci...stick his butt in a chemically induced coma for the rest of his life *or however long it takes to deactivate his failsafe to acantha....and then flush his ass into a volcano.
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 10:36 PM edit delete reply

hahah - if only it were that easy...
Rashala 20th Nov 2012, 3:31 PM edit delete reply

Oh....kay.... Long range snipe shot to cervical vertibrae Followed by second shot to frontol lobe with a tranq dart needle to disable speech center of brain...Deci is a quadrapalegic mute

How about.... a 'hunting accident'? With say...a trained Tiger? Catapults are fun too...Tell him its a new carnival ride and promise a net, then launch him just short of the landing zone, reload his screaming, broken body in and fire again until the problem is solved.
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 11:12 PM edit delete reply

oooh boy I take it you guys REALLY dont like this poor bastard *grins*
Draginbeard 19th Nov 2012, 11:48 PM edit delete reply

Not so much, no. =P
Centcomm 19th Nov 2012, 11:51 PM edit delete reply

I feel really flattered that we have created such a hated villian :D
Sleel 20th Nov 2012, 4:05 PM edit delete reply

Well. For me he does fall into the category I usually reserve for terrorists and pedophiles, and the execution method they deserve. To me, their manner of death should visit upon them the same degree of suffering they visited upon their victims. Ahem:

Injection with suitable drugs to stabilize them against death by shock. Flay them alive, including the eyelids. Douse them with lemon juice, vinegar would work good too. Slather in honey and place fluid filled goggles over their eyes so they wont dry out and go blind. Stake them out on an anthill with multiple CCTVs set up so they have to watch themselves be eaten to death no matter which way they look. And having no eyelids, can never not look.

So, yup. Not winning any popularity contests, this guy. :} No. I don't think capital punishment acts as a deterrent. If it did, we'd have no crime happening that called for it. It DOES eliminate recidivism. See no reason certain types of trash deserve a chance to re-offend. Letting them go is the state,(and those that make the state adopt this position) forcing the citizenry to play Russian Roulette with their lives.
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 4:12 PM edit delete reply

wow.. thats .. brutal.. I like it.
Fefniir 20th Nov 2012, 4:11 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, this is the kind of villain that I don't think I would hesitate to eliminate. Contingencies be damned, this bastard needs to be put down!
Rashala 20th Nov 2012, 3:32 PM edit delete reply

TO quote one of my favorite shows..

There is a special kind of hell reserved for Child molesters and people who talk durrign movies.

And Deci is going there.

*free cookie if you can name what that quote is from*
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 3:57 PM edit delete reply

I remember it .. but cant remember the name of the show...:D
Rashala 20th Nov 2012, 5:52 PM edit delete reply

Give you a hint.

1 season. Did amazing on DVD. and got a movie.


Joss whedon.
Dragonrider 20th Nov 2012, 5:50 PM edit delete reply

Tthe exact full quote is, I believe,"If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater... remember, a special hell - Shepherd Book " Most often attributed to Firefly.
Rashala 20th Nov 2012, 5:52 PM edit delete reply

@Dragonrider *hands over a cookie* Hello Fellow Browncoat.
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

I had heard that Looooong before firefly.. like in highschool .. I think Joss used it yes. but I heard it long before then
Rashala 20th Nov 2012, 6:28 PM edit delete reply

still no cookie for you centy
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

bpbpbpppth! *sulks*
Dragonrider 21st Nov 2012, 5:00 AM edit delete reply

*Gives cookie to CentComm* Read my cite..."Most OFTEN attributed to Firefly".
Also I am not a browncoat, I don't own a TV never saw the series just know how to use a computer. I can dig deeper and find the original quote but as I seem to recall this is a radical paraphrase of the original.

Another insightful page of conversation. "Hard on his toys" Didn't they tell him that slaves aren't toys? They're an investment!
ryuskrew 20th Nov 2012, 8:23 AM edit delete reply

D'awww..I feel bad for the one woman :(
Kuratenshi 20th Nov 2012, 9:57 AM edit delete reply

Yay, subscribed! My condolences as well Fairport. I've been fortunate in not losing any close family of my own yet.

On a more pleasant note, do people here have recommendations of additional web comics to read? I follow about 100 regularly, but I always like finding new ones!
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 11:07 AM edit delete reply

awesome! thank you for the sub! - as for other comics I have a Links page listed at the top theres quite a few up there.
Hornet 20th Nov 2012, 10:04 AM edit delete reply
This still brings up a question if Dex's killed his parents why didn't these contingencies come into play then? Or was it that he waited until after 1. he reached his majority and 2. after being named Heir apparent?
Or are the contingencies something Dex had added after his murders?
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 11:09 AM edit delete reply

I really cant answer that yet , due to spoilers.. :P all shall be revealed in due course. :D
Tokyo Rose 20th Nov 2012, 1:51 PM edit delete reply

Not too big of a spoiler, really. Valerius was a popular ruler and didn't feel he needed contingencies to secure his position. Decimus is very UNpopular and would most certainly have gone the way of, oh... Caligula, Vitellius, Commodus, Pertinax, Elagabalus - let's just say that a fair number of Roman emperors found out slightly too late that their own guards or own army really didn't like them.
hrwilliams 20th Nov 2012, 12:05 PM edit delete reply

Pretty good job with the facial expressions, mate.
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 12:40 PM edit delete reply

thank you very much ! I love comments like that - expressions are NOT easy - esp speaking ones .. I try hard to not have the same position for each panel. but there are only a few positions that dont make you look like your sucking on a lemon or trying to suck your own lips down your throat >_< those sounds would be "ow" and AA or "ah" I use variations on those .. yelling is a lot easyer :D
LooeyQ 20th Nov 2012, 12:35 PM edit delete reply

"Toys" Dang yo!She is brainwashed!
Great page as usual! :D
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 12:38 PM edit delete reply

Shes being sarcastic, at least its a trace of her normal snarkyness. this is a good sign.
KarToon12 20th Nov 2012, 1:29 PM edit delete reply

Hearing this conversation about visiting each other's cities, for some reason, I just thought of the song, "Part of your World", from the Little Mermaid. XDXD
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 1:44 PM edit delete reply

Hee! thats kinda cool - didnt think of it till now :D well NT and NR are almost as diffrent hopfully the girls will get a happy ending ..
Dragonrider 20th Nov 2012, 5:56 PM edit delete reply

If she doesn't have a permanent scar on her throat I'll be surprised also wold not be surprised to find her with a broken collarbone.
Centcomm 20th Nov 2012, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

well ill not discuss her injurys much as it will be gone over. but a scar on her throat ? not sure how that would have happened considering what he was doing.
Dragonrider 21st Nov 2012, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

Panel two came from the way he was holding her
Centcomm 21st Nov 2012, 6:05 AM edit delete reply

hmm, still now sure how that would scar :P
mushroomisland 20th Nov 2012, 9:09 PM edit delete reply

this just broods more and more hatred. He should be buried alive D:<
Centcomm 21st Nov 2012, 6:06 AM edit delete reply
