He looks awesome.

Like seriously, he's a badass already when he has the mask, but he somehow looks even more badass without it. :P

hehe - you can thank Rose and Diana silver here for suggestions and tweaks on Aeneas's looks :D
Tokyo Rose 13th Jan 2013, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

I'll cop to it; I was a very loud voice in describing exactly what I wanted Aeneas to look like. Di is responsible for the base model design (thanks, Di!) and Cent managed the cracked-porcelain look I insisted on . . .

What is the next milestone on the master plan?
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:53 AM edit delete reply

Dolly blowing up nova roma ? and doing horrible things to the prince?
Dragonrider 14th Jan 2013, 11:14 AM edit delete reply

Sounds reasonable, but won't Little Miss Quick Trigger Finger get PO'd about someone else doing it?
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 11:15 AM edit delete reply

most assuredly :D
Dianna Silver 13th Jan 2013, 9:50 PM edit delete reply

Suggestions. :P Been years, but at last. Nice to finally officially see him make an appearance.
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:53 AM edit delete reply

@Dianna - Ill second that :D

He's also one of our sort of anti-mascots :)

I bet it missed her..I have a feelign it has a AI in it too

hehe :D
Tokyo Rose 14th Jan 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

Acantha did mention that her friend IS this place. (But yes, Aeneas implemented a subroutine that oversees the climate control, lighting, plumbing, and other details of Acantha's room. It has nothing to do except basic maintenance when she's not there, so it's actually kind of reasonable to say that her room "misses" her...)

Strong character introduction. This has been a really great scene so far!
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:50 AM edit delete reply

hehe - this scene has been giving me fits.. men are NOT my forte.. >_<
Tokyo Rose 14th Jan 2013, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

Di designs spectacular bishonen, though :)

Can't argue with that... Even I think he looks kinda pretty :-)
cattservant 14th Jan 2013, 12:13 AM edit delete reply

"No Cake"...
How much Spoon is there?

Careful what you wish for Lynn...

How loud is the 'little bird' singing?
Decimus must be a little grumpy if he knows where Lynn is at!
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:50 AM edit delete reply

ah but that would be telling :D
Death2Bravo 14th Jan 2013, 1:32 AM edit delete reply

This guy looks like he posed for a few romance novel covers before becoming an AI. His expression in that first panel is priceless.
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:51 AM edit delete reply

im glad it came out so well .. :D
Tokyo Rose 14th Jan 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

I LOVE that expression. He's so adorable. Squee :D

The AI seems to have that cute tormented prince look that two young ladies could warm up to very easily. I just hope he doesn't start "Testing"
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:52 AM edit delete reply

testing .. oh my! ( well in the girls favor ) if you are talking about what I think , its not in his programming.. XD
Tokyo Rose 14th Jan 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

The "cake" line is a direct callback to the source of the "testing" remark. :D
KarToon12 14th Jan 2013, 7:44 AM edit delete reply

Ah, thank you. Maskless is much better.

Also, the cake is a lie.
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 7:52 AM edit delete reply

:D and yes.. yes it is .. the cake is indeed a lie ...
velvetsanity 15th Apr 2013, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

You mean he actually has cake? O_O

(since, you know, he mentioned a lack thereof...)

A great scene, further establishing that Aeneas is immensely (dangerously) powerful and fragile.

It's also great seeing Acantha in a place where she feels truly secure (as her own quarters in the palace turned out not to be). Lynn may be in for some surprises as her new friend really lets her hair down.
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 5:59 PM edit delete reply

yep :D you are probably correct :D
Dragonrider 14th Jan 2013, 11:20 AM edit delete reply

I might assume that very soon the birdie will be singing from Nova Illium as far as Decimus instruments show and the bracelet is deactivated, if Lynn comes to trust Aeneas. Right now all she wants to do is rabbit, even back to Decimus just to get away from close proximity to the loony tune in charge.
Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 6:00 PM edit delete reply

well... hes SCARY!
Tokyo Rose 14th Jan 2013, 6:27 PM edit delete reply

As Acantha's noted several times, she doesn't really "understand" the tech around her, and even knowing the stories of what Aeneas did, she doesn't really connect THAT to him as he is now. Lynn DOES understand the tech. She knows what a city AIS can do. She would be happier if she were on a unicycle juggling antimatter right now . . .

Ah, the AI mentioned cake.

Centcomm 14th Jan 2013, 6:01 PM edit delete reply

oh yes,.. be afriad . be very afriad.
mushroomisland 18th Jan 2013, 2:14 PM edit delete reply

oh yay sleepover with the crazy AI :D

velvetsanity 15th Apr 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

Can't think of a more relaxing and entertaining way to spend a cold winter night :D
antrik 9th May 2017, 8:52 AM edit delete reply
Considering that Rosie is the one working on making Lynn's wish come true (about Kyle being there) -- does that makes her a goddess?... ;-)
