Centcomm 20th Jan 2013, 9:29 PM edit delete reply

had to totally delete the two pages and re-post .. >_<
cattservant 20th Jan 2013, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

Reprogram with a fire ax!

Now you can relax the rest of the night in an "AUUUGH!" free zone.

I think the Ladies will modify their opinion fairly soon.

It's okay. Posting things in the wrong order is something we all fear doing. :P
Centcomm 20th Jan 2013, 10:44 PM edit delete reply

Meh, had a little trouble with this myself, only it was due to me being sloppy and inattentive to what I was doing. Mostly it was me trying to upload a few pages on very little sleep. Sleep is NOT over-rated.

Page looks good, dialog is solid as always. =)
Centcomm 20th Jan 2013, 11:02 PM edit delete reply

thank you- sorry for the mix up >_<
Draginbeard 21st Jan 2013, 6:55 AM edit delete reply

No worries, you update a hell of a lot more than I do, and with barely a hiccup to your name. That's pretty impressive =)

It is never easy to learn the ways of a leader. Vision and drive are always a preferable method to lead and usually with great and wondrous results. However, in the real world of humans sometimes it is necessary to lead from the point of a gun. This will be a very hard lesson for Acantha to learn, but learn she must and he knows it.
Centcomm 20th Jan 2013, 11:26 PM edit delete reply

you are far more correct than you know :D

Are we still missing the instruction-manual and ammo/recharger ?
Also, I would insist on some rounds on the range...
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 1:08 AM edit delete reply

You must be a gun owner :D or a aficondo because those are some excellent tips..
Death2Bravo 21st Jan 2013, 1:43 AM edit delete reply

Definitely going to need a training course. Few things are worse than pulling the gun and thinking you're safe and then discovering you have no idea how to turn the safety off.
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 2:11 AM edit delete reply

oh that sucks .. >_< click. aw crap wheres the safety! >_<
Dragonrider 21st Jan 2013, 6:39 AM edit delete reply

Ussually it's ,"Oh God it hurts, make it stop hurting, he's gonna kill me now, why didn't the damn thing fire", or "Why the hell am I sitting on my ass and everybody is laughing at me?" my favorite is,"Gawddammit! my head hurts and there's blood running down my face, this dam thing kicks like a fricken mule, and who is the idiot that designed this with that fancy handgrip with the curved lip."
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 8:14 AM edit delete reply

ive seen that happen! its almost as funny as it is sad..
Dragonrider 21st Jan 2013, 6:35 PM edit delete reply

I guarantee the ones that do that number are the ones that learned how to fire a weapon from watching TV. What I move for cover when I see about to happen are the idiots that think you hold the weapon one handed and sideways when you fire.

Upon reflection giving the girls a couple toys like Lynn started off with might have been a smarter thing. Supposing of course that Aeneas had the technology to do it. Of course right now all he is doing is thinking about keeping Acantha from being pregnant by her brother forever, not the psychological results of what committing fratricide would do to Acantha. Typical straight line computer logic, remove blockages once and for ever.
cattservant 21st Jan 2013, 7:53 AM edit delete reply

Well it would only be half as bad as it could be...
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 8:15 AM edit delete reply

oh? what toys? her Taser Blade? or the backpack that she packed?
Dragonrider 21st Jan 2013, 6:40 PM edit delete reply

Oh the Teddy Ruxpin she had in her backpack obviously, give it to Decimus and hope that among other things he's a furvert.
OH, wait, was I being sarcastic? The Taser Blade of course.
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 8:00 PM edit delete reply

well the back back had some things too.. but yeah the taser blade was confiscated by the gutter gal. dont worry we will see it again. the back pack still hasnt show up >_<
lalverson 21st Jan 2013, 7:56 AM edit delete reply
If Aeneas was a straight line logical unit I would agree. But given he is a unit that has been damaged and for who knows how long had a literal torrent of data stream into him it isn't a far reach to think he is a great deal more aware of things as he's been forced to watch the patterns form around the various people and cities. I would not doubt for a second that this gun he has given them is possibly the only high speed communication device he has and these gals will be carrying it out for him. Something tells me that when the weapon fires it will be Acantha pulling the trigger but Aeneas making it go off.

He did say that it will not fire there. this tells me he controls the weapon to some degree. Maybe even to the point of being able to verify what is at the business end of the barrel.

The weapon will protect her from her brother taking his liberties but it will also end him as Aeneas wants to be repaired and or have more interaction with the humans he has been segregated from.

well .. all Ill do is point you at the Minx story arc. about "smart guns" :D
LooeyQ 21st Jan 2013, 8:19 AM edit delete reply

Bad idea? or Adventurous idea!
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 9:58 AM edit delete reply

hehe your so silly MD :D
LooeyQ 22nd Jan 2013, 11:58 AM edit delete reply

How did you know he took over my mind when I wrote that comment:-O

Centcomm 22nd Jan 2013, 12:01 PM edit delete reply

because that is a trademark phrase by old MD :D
KarToon12 21st Jan 2013, 9:44 AM edit delete reply

Acantha's expressions are so well done. :)
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 9:58 AM edit delete reply

many thanks there ! :D I do try my hardest!
EdInFresno 21st Jan 2013, 7:21 PM edit delete reply

Ouch! I feel that one for you, Centcomm! The first work I posted here had somehow gotten all the pages scrambled (I'm sure it was my own fault but I still haven't figured it out.) Still, the pages do appear to be in order so that's all to the good. Also, great update. Looking forward to more.
Centcomm 21st Jan 2013, 8:00 PM edit delete reply

thanks - ive almost got it figured out..

"The power cell was very complex to make".
Cent, hats off. What A. just handed Cantha probably makes a Black Angel's armament look like a Nerf gun, right?

P.S. Love you stuff. Where do I vote? ..and how can I help get your comic out?
Centcomm 2nd Feb 2013, 3:42 PM edit delete reply
