This occurs four more times . . . a testament to Rashala's patience and determination!

Hmnn, what was it the Serpent offered Eve, back then in the garden?
Rashala 26th Mar 2013, 8:34 PM edit delete reply

An Apple of knowledge.
cattservant 26th Mar 2013, 9:02 PM edit delete reply

Indeed! Knowledge of self-awareness and mortality.

velvetsanity 20th May 2017, 11:14 AM edit delete reply

A deep thought? Or perhaps a hint of foreshadowing?

cattservant 26th Mar 2013, 11:08 PM edit delete reply

RE:"questions..."; Cent-comm (Pages 528-537) programmed/activated CeCi* in record time with very few if any 'personal touches'. Then she tossed her right into the action!
[I think Cent-comm is being experimental. Rolling the dice, so to speak.]

*(Who is a (mostly) independent copy of Cen-comm.)
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 6:00 AM edit delete reply

that will be explained in time...
ranger_brianna_new 26th Mar 2013, 11:55 PM edit delete reply

The bad part of my imagination kinda has it that somehow, Ceci will be deactivated. :(

The hopeful part of me is that Ceci's request to be assigned to Dolly will be granted, even if it takes a good word or two (or three or four or more :P) in order for that to happen.
Rashala 27th Mar 2013, 12:14 AM edit delete reply

*starts protest groups* KEEP CECI ONLINE!!!...

and if peaceful protests fail.....*Slips into MArcus and Tedee's Little stockpiles Of "Special" Weapons to commit warcrimes toys
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 12:15 AM edit delete reply

Don't forget Dolly 2.0 is an unique individual in whom Cent-comm is vitally interested.
I imagine she will want Dolly very closely guarded/observed for the foreseeable future.
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 6:01 AM edit delete reply

Ceci's fate is a plot point. nuff said :P
Rashala 27th Mar 2013, 1:53 PM edit delete reply

Well Nuff said okay *continues to stare anyway cause I know it creeps centy out and I bet rose finds it hilarious*

CyberSkull 27th Mar 2013, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

I'm betting that as soon as Ceci is back within secure high bandwidth-wireless range of Centcom she will sync up with her main self and move to the same autonomy as any of Centcom's other mobile nodes.

Even if she doesn't want to return, the subconscious personality she has would probably force her to finish the mission.
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 12:18 AM edit delete reply

Cent-comm could always maneuver CeCi into being a spy in Breaker's 'House of Love'. She's got the perfect cover for it!
velvetsanity 27th Mar 2013, 3:18 AM edit delete reply

I agree on the synching...but as soon as Ceci's experiences are integrated with will Cent-comm be changed by it?

I'd guess Ceci goes right back online after that. And Cent-comm thinks long and hard about her dolls.
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 6:03 AM edit delete reply

Ceci's fate is a plot point. nuff said :P
velvetsanity 27th Mar 2013, 8:50 PM edit delete reply

doesn't mean we can't speculate ^_^
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 12:50 AM edit delete reply

Not to be rude*, but Dolly seems to be doing a better job of 'blowing off' this morning. At least this time she got juice!

*(It is dark and cold and early.)
velvetsanity 27th Mar 2013, 3:28 AM edit delete reply

But did she get something to eat?
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 6:04 AM edit delete reply

yep I skipped the shower , bathroom , throwing up scenes,.. and breakfast..
Rashala 27th Mar 2013, 1:54 PM edit delete reply

You skipped the best parts!!!!!

*still Stares*

Seems like Ceci is searching for her purpose in life!

She's an Angel they are only active to do a mission.
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 6:05 AM edit delete reply

remember Ceci is a "Black" Angel.. most "White" Angels are kept online and work as INT-Sec and other high end intelligence jobs for 3c and New troy.
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 7:14 AM edit delete reply

Such as Cella.
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 9:22 AM edit delete reply

correct... Cella is a White Angel.
Draginbeard 27th Mar 2013, 6:56 AM edit delete reply

I thought the scripting on this page came off very smoothly. The rendering in that last panel is just plain excellent. Im really enjoying the work you guys have put into this.

Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 9:22 AM edit delete reply

thank you I really appreceate it :D
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 7:32 AM edit delete reply

Cent-comm's dolls are remote controlled robots.
CeCi is quite a different proposition.
Is she unique?
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 9:23 AM edit delete reply

she is actually.. for a lot of reasons.
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 11:31 AM edit delete reply

Once CeCi grows up, I could imagine Cent-comm wanting to put her in one of the new style 2.0 bodies.
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 3:45 PM edit delete reply

Silly me! I should have looked at CeCi's designator code.

CC-E1-01 [MODEL -4C]

CC = Cent-Comm
E1 = ?
01 = first unit
[Model -4C] = body type

What does "E1" signify? (Experimental?)
velvetsanity 27th Mar 2013, 8:52 PM edit delete reply

Ooh, that's an interesting question.

How *are* designations determined, and what does each part mean?
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 8:56 PM edit delete reply

If experience is any guide, The Dynamic Duo has a manual on the subject in one of their drawers!
velvetsanity 18th Apr 2013, 6:12 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure that behind the scenes, at least part of it is deliberate choice by the authors (i.e. "this would provide a logical human name extrapolation)

But in-world, I'm wondering how it's determined :)
cattservant 18th Apr 2013, 10:34 AM edit delete reply

There is a definite answer in the Comments on Page 948.
velvetsanity 18th Apr 2013, 1:19 PM edit delete reply

Well, yes, but that answer is specific to Ceci. I was more wondering if there's a general convention of some sort involved, since the only commonality seems to be that the first part is all letters and the rest seems to be a mix of letters and numbers.
Centcomm 18th Apr 2013, 1:23 PM edit delete reply

there is a convention and its two parts - US as creators .. and one "in world... Ill say this much the first letters mean the indvidual such as type.. what matrix was used as a seed ect ect .. then a code for where and what factory or company designed them THEN the last part ( and most consistant ) is the model type always two part first a number 1 - 4 then a letter indicating "add ons" going from A to generally E
velvetsanity 18th Apr 2013, 1:27 PM edit delete reply

Ahh, that makes sense. Is there a master list of factories/companies somewhere I can peek at? :D
Centcomm 18th Apr 2013, 3:00 PM edit delete reply

nope.. having a "list" would defeat the second purpose behind the names...
velvetsanity 18th Apr 2013, 3:19 PM edit delete reply

A *second* purpose? Sinister...

Just makes me want to play in a DC game even more :D
KarToon12 27th Mar 2013, 7:42 AM edit delete reply

More self-awareness developing...should we be excited or scared?
cattservant 27th Mar 2013, 9:05 AM edit delete reply

As always...
Centcomm 27th Mar 2013, 9:23 AM edit delete reply

velvetsanity 27th Mar 2013, 8:55 PM edit delete reply

There's no point in fearing the inevitable. It's much more productive to embrace it and actively work towards it. If nothing else, it will help smooth things over when it finally comes.

Dolly's new body is clearly a large step towards Humanity 2.0

Now we just need a human transferred into an equivalent body, and solve the reproductive issues. Then the final step will be population transition.
Antonious 27th Mar 2013, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
I love the people who read and comment on DC. It is at least as much fun reading the comments ... *Rashala* ... as reading the story. Keep it up Cent - Comm and Tokyo Rose.

Panel 3: is this open to the sky? Why are there two shadows for everything? Did the great cataclysm create a second sun?
Centcomm 18th Aug 2014, 9:00 AM edit delete reply


i used 3 light sources and forgot to turn off shadows on 2 of them LOL wow is MY face red..
it is outside though..
Mark_L_A 14th May 2015, 4:58 PM edit delete reply

Some of the shadows reminds me of the low incidence reflection off of my solar panels. I have thrown my shadow on my panels and depending on just where the sun is positioned I can sometimes get a shadow behind me from the reflection off the panels. Depending on the angles of the roofs, there could be some of that going on.

What made me think of this was thinking that possibly they use solar for some of their power needs. Many people will mount their panels on their roofs, mine are on a stand next to my house.

And the render/artwork is top notch.
Centcomm 14th May 2015, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

good catch actually :D - its actually a combo of panels and clear panels over the "bus stop " "D
Mark_L_A 14th May 2015, 8:50 PM edit delete reply

Thank you Centcomm.
