Oh sweet Ceci ....lok I would NOT wanna be Douchy anywhere NEAR A when Acantha tells him what he did.....Whoa....I wonder can Nova roma Nuke its own castle?
Centcomm 24th Jan 2013, 9:54 PM edit delete reply

yes perhaps but a lot more than just deck would be killed by such a action. people that have no reason to die.
Dragonrider 25th Jan 2013, 6:46 AM edit delete reply

I have a feeling a battalion of Warbots may be activated and put on standby to return as a Praetorian type Guard for the girls.
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 6:48 AM edit delete reply

that would be awesome.. :D
Dragonrider 26th Jan 2013, 7:08 AM edit delete reply

I can see it now, Acantha and Lynn fly in followed by 4 troop transports, they all land an honor guard unfolds out of Acanths's car, takes up a perimeter guard as the Battalion forms up. With Acantha and Lynn in the lead they go to the throne room and confront Vinegar and Water explaining how "His" Throne room is now somewhere around what was Death Valley and he can build any kind of palace he wants out there. A ship will drop him bread and water every weekday when the name of that day that doesn't end in a "Y".

Panel 4...superb staging! Great!
Centcomm 24th Jan 2013, 9:55 PM edit delete reply

thank you! but in what regards?
cattservant 24th Jan 2013, 10:00 PM edit delete reply

You're so subtle!
Let's see if you get any comments about Lynn's shock bracelet having switched arms...
Centcomm 24th Jan 2013, 10:04 PM edit delete reply

did it? nope just checked its been on her left arm all this time. although I did switch the idle color for it :D
cattservant 24th Jan 2013, 10:11 PM edit delete reply

Nope! It's a tribute to your clever use of juxtaposition in panel 5.
Centcomm 24th Jan 2013, 10:19 PM edit delete reply

ah - where Lynn is holding her left arm with her right hand.. I see what you mean now.
cattservant 24th Jan 2013, 10:22 PM edit delete reply

See! So subtle you don't even catch yourself. Very smooth!
Draginbeard 24th Jan 2013, 10:38 PM edit delete reply

Its a troptical delusion! yeah..dats dah ticket!

Heh, for a brief moment, I saw panel 5 and thought Lynn had left a hand print on A's chest. Quite an after image that bracelet leaves behind!

I really like panel 4 though. I like the way you lit her face and the shadow play from her hair.

I tried sketching Lynn from that frame... it didn't take long before I realized how bad I needed the practice.
Centcomm 24th Jan 2013, 10:42 PM edit delete reply

awww would love to see it! and thank you yeah panel 4 came out really nice. trying to improve the way I do smiles. raytracing shadows are a pain! I think I redid that several times the bunk bed kept throwing too harsh of a shadow. till i got a sufficint fill light to off set the darkness, ( im also surprised no ones mentioned Lynn has earrings again. she got these from Arianna. thye are not her originals. )
cattservant 24th Jan 2013, 11:45 PM edit delete reply

When you post the next page, could you AN a brief time and space orientation?

(RE: Earrings; I was blinded by science and midriffs!)
Centcomm 24th Jan 2013, 11:46 PM edit delete reply

will do.. I had planned to anyway :P although it should be easy to tell .. :D
cattservant 24th Jan 2013, 11:49 PM edit delete reply

Thank you!
Short and sweet; just Dolly and Ceci vs Lynn and company.

Ides of March, that is what a Roman History nut would use on his luggage. And 1-2-3 obvious. How about 98378, 9 August AD 378, Adrianople, the end of the Western Roman Empire. (Go Goths!)
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 5:33 AM edit delete reply

Thats why Acantha said what she did. she knows her brother. but it is something that isnt common in "this" day and age.. :D
and thats another good one !
Dragonrider 25th Jan 2013, 6:42 AM edit delete reply

It's been interesting to watch the dynamic between Lynn and Aeneas begin to change and become what she is accustomed to with androids. Also the subtle changes in Aeneas's reaction to Lynn and the slight improvement in his grammar. Now the real fun begins when Dolly,Ceci and the other two crews descend on Nova Roma. I'm sure one of the hidden directives the androids from home have is total destruction of Aeneas so Nova Roma is removed as any type of power base. While one crew and Lynn struggle to save and repair Aeneas.
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 6:46 AM edit delete reply

you sir, have been paying attention, yes his grammar has improved over the last few pages. and hes warmed up a bit to Lynn and she to him. as for the "rescue" crew .. im sure sparks are going to fly in spades...
cattservant 25th Jan 2013, 8:17 AM edit delete reply

They are really going to dig in!
Dragonrider 25th Jan 2013, 11:14 AM edit delete reply

It's useless as well as pointless to read unless you pay attention, mindless drivel is available 27/7 from the babble box most folks have in their homes. It tells us how to think, what to buy, how to react to various stimuli. I fear in R/L by the time this age arrives Androids will feed us, bath us, dress us and prop us in front of an improved TV that stimulates our nerve endings so we think we really do things rather than vegetate from birth to death.
Sorry that's my rant for the day.
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 11:19 AM edit delete reply

frightenly enough you just discribed a sect of New Troy to a "T" more about them later >_<
cattservant 25th Jan 2013, 8:20 AM edit delete reply

The motivations of major AIs are deep, dark and duplicitous I think!
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 8:23 AM edit delete reply

they can be.. after all they are normally thinking several weeks or years ahead.
cattservant 25th Jan 2013, 9:00 AM edit delete reply

No doubt they believe* they are creating reality.

*(With considerable justification!)
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 9:02 AM edit delete reply

you know only ONE AIS actually suffers that disorder..its ( CLASSIFIED SHUT UP ARTIST!! ) ok ok sheeesh... sorry its a plot point later.. >_<
Dragonrider 25th Jan 2013, 11:22 AM edit delete reply

Can't figure that one out, how about a hint please.
KarToon12 25th Jan 2013, 8:15 AM edit delete reply

Clever password code...

Yay! I can't wait to see Dolly and Ceci again! :D
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 8:24 AM edit delete reply

Rose came up with the code :D
oh I think everyone will enjoy this next segmemnt, its a lot lighter on the mood actually.. :D
cattservant 25th Jan 2013, 9:04 AM edit delete reply

Dolly learns about ethanol and Ceci gets in touch with her inner pole dancer?
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 9:05 AM edit delete reply

Gahhhhh - I dont want to give spoilers !! augh! *head bang desk* I really do want to answer trust me..

Hell with Ceci as a pole dancer can't handle the pink bubblegum hair, I wanna see Dolly as a Pole Dancer, and I wanna get a lap dance from her the new improved body, whoo mama!!!!! She is hawt.

Splish Splash!
Dragonrider 25th Jan 2013, 1:35 PM edit delete reply

Small of the back is a convenient concealed carry for someone my size, provided I'm not hiding a hand cannon that will blast through six people standing one behind the other. I would suggest you design some shoulder leather for Lynn and take advantage of the larger parts of her body. With a bulky button sweater she could carry it off fairly well concealed and still get to it in time to pop Old Vinegar and Water to save the day.
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 1:42 PM edit delete reply

actually - her placing it there is intentional. shes seen dolly do that for some functions. although Dolly prefers a side holster or a shoulder one. BUT Dolly has used a lowbelt holster for "diplomacy reasons or when obvious weapons would be sour. or as a back up weapon. Acantha also doesnt have a extensive knowlage about carrying firearms as everyone she knows eather carrys openly or doesnt need a gun ( re: Kali and often Maxus ) but shes seen vids of people doing it hollywood style. both girls are being guilty of this right now. the artist is aware that Lynn is not carrying the weapon in the smartest method just as when Lynn used the candle stick the "wrong" way. however I am glad you pointed it out. because some readers may not be aware of the diffrences. :D
cattservant 26th Jan 2013, 4:58 PM edit delete reply

Lynn could drop by Mushroom Island and get a Steelheart modification...
Centcomm 26th Jan 2013, 6:45 PM edit delete reply

Hah. if she had that I dont think the kidnappers would have gotten her this far .. ^_^
Sleel 25th Jan 2013, 2:07 PM edit delete reply

Yayayayaya. CeCi \o/ Now where's my time machine. Not often I 'want' Monday here. x]
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 2:12 PM edit delete reply

I guess Ceci has some fans out there - Sorry its been so long! >_<
Rashala 25th Jan 2013, 9:52 PM edit delete reply

Fans. Lovers.

people who would love to meet her irl and marry her...Yep Ceci is popular.

so is centcomm's main tedee for target practice ;)
Centcomm 25th Jan 2013, 10:05 PM edit delete reply

yes one of them still has a explody headache thanks to TD... >_<
Rashala 26th Jan 2013, 12:43 AM edit delete reply

I thought TD blew that one's head OFF
Centcomm 26th Jan 2013, 1:06 AM edit delete reply

just blew the back of its skull out . its a laser not a explosive round..:D

Still wondering: if Aeneas can do delicate work (like the ring), wouldn't he be able to repair himself/doll/base ?
Dragonrider 26th Jan 2013, 4:44 AM edit delete reply

Probably not so much the ability to do delicate work as the availability of spare parts, and access to the portions of the brain that contain the information of how to complete the DIY project. Plus the fact that he no longer has a human staff to do routine maintenance, R&D and manufacture the needed replacement logic frames he needs since Acantha's Grandfather murdered them in the revolution.
Centcomm 26th Jan 2013, 9:42 AM edit delete reply

IM going to just smile and nod here. but for Aeneas to "fix himself" it would be the equivalant difficulty of someone doing Brain surgery on themselves. way too risky even if he knew how. making the ring and gun are projects he could focus on. and do "by hand" or make with small scale fabricators.. but more about those later..
Rashala 26th Jan 2013, 4:22 PM edit delete reply

TRue but I bet he could Build things that could do the repairs for him hmmm?
Centcomm 26th Jan 2013, 4:32 PM edit delete reply

yes perhaps he could but would you trust a janitor to do brain surgery , Aeneas doesnt have "access" to the information to repair himself thats part of whats damaged .. as Rose Pointed out earlyer.
cattservant 26th Jan 2013, 4:51 PM edit delete reply

Besides, nobody has been in much of a hurry on Aeneas's health and well being up till now...
cattservant 28th Jan 2013, 2:32 PM edit delete reply

Has Aeneas reconsidered explaining to Lynn just how 'thin the ice' she's skating on is, or has he just not gotten around to it yet?
Hana 13th Jul 2014, 12:47 AM edit delete reply
Hes so frayed at the edges he is, hes so sweet and cute and goofy...i love their friendship.

Sidenote: Our dear "Cantha" seems to have red-headed protectors...
Centcomm 13th Jul 2014, 1:45 AM edit delete reply

Yes she does and welcome to the story ! :D
GhostRider 13th Nov 2015, 9:10 AM edit delete reply
I really hope the Julius Caesar reference is foreshadowing. *proceeds to beg Cent to kill Prince Douche*
Phil 21st Mar 2016, 7:18 PM edit delete reply
Cute code.. but it really should be

Italy -> Europe -> ISO standard date order :p
Oldarmourer 20th Jun 2019, 5:36 AM edit delete reply
Nova Roma is in what used to be Canada so it should be 15344 dates go smallest to largest here, ie: day-month-year, not month-day-year :)
megados 18th May 2017, 12:10 PM edit delete reply

Good to be rereading; reminded of how great Aeneas is!
