A quickly suppressed flash, but message delivered.

[The Ladies are colluding. Watch out!]

First panel, Connie is holding back something that is bothering her.

Third panel of Teedee, Not even an A cup size? No wonder she was so pissed at rebirth. Looks like she is a pre-pub.

Android Etiquette!

[RE: TeeDee's lack thereof; What Ada asked when she first woke up in 3C Recovery!]
Centcomm 7th Jul 2013, 7:20 PM edit delete reply

well technicly Breasts on a andriod serve no purpose unless they are a sex worker or just like the look.
highlander55 7th Jul 2013, 7:41 PM edit delete reply

Maybe, But it is also part of her outlook of herself. Something that is no longer there is some part of her ID that is gone! Like a Cancer survivor maybe!?

Or space for more power packs!
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 8:50 AM edit delete reply

Boobs just get in the way of Ada's hugs. >_<
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 9:14 AM edit delete reply

now your looking at it with Ada's perspective. :D
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 10:44 AM edit delete reply


Besides, she's such a pretty little boy. :D
anarcha 7th Jul 2013, 7:48 PM edit delete reply

Pretty amazing shadow action going on here!
Centcomm 7th Jul 2013, 8:19 PM edit delete reply

Thank you! I liked how those came out .. :D shadows are tricky things...

Awww, poor Connie *hugs her* getting volunteered like that...

Ah, well, that seems like the right time to address the Reload Trauma (or the reload trauma stress syndrome?) that especially Teedee seems to have. I wonder though that Ada is coping so good...
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 8:53 AM edit delete reply

Yeah Connie seems so disappointed in Mr Black ... she had hoped he was better, and would respect her for who she is and not treat her as a machine, or worse, as property.

As for Ada coping, she did get what she wanted, so there's less disharmony to deal with.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 9:13 AM edit delete reply

also Due to Ada almost crashing during reload Dr. Silver "clipped" the affected memorys thus removing the issue for Ada her "memorys" stop right before the crash not during or after. unlike TeeDee. TD showed no signs of trama during reload so Silver had no idea.

Sheela: I don't think Black is treating Connie badly. Marcus stuck his nose in and neither Black nor Connie have had any time to adapt to the new situation. At the very least, Black hasn't had a chance to clear up any misconceptions Connie might have. I'll bet that he rectifies that very quickly. He seems a man of strong ethics and I don't think he gave Connie her freedom just to treat her as another machine.
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 10:47 AM edit delete reply

Maybe so, but lets not forget that his main line of work is smuggling. He may not be quite as nice as most seem to think, somewhere under that polished appearance, there's gonne ba some hard edges and an iron fist of some sort.

That said, I don't think he's a bad guy either, he's ... just not quite up to the standards of her imagination.

But then, few can live up to being put on a pedestal.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 10:53 AM edit delete reply

Marcus is also a "authority figure" being Mil-sec and due to fairly deeply ingraned "tradition" you dont argue with people that can shoot you. or that run the city defense. hes WAY above her pay grade, after all she was a glorifyed customs inspector. she feels really out of place and a bit intimidated by him.
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 11:55 AM edit delete reply

Well, I was talking about Mr. Black ... but I guess it goes for Marcus too. :)

Hard men can be hard to cope with, even if they're wearing silken gloves. *sage nod*
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 2:30 PM edit delete reply

what threw her was his apperent surrender to Marcus telling him "Fine" now that put Connie on the spot - she says no she looks like a coward. or worse. she really wants to make a good impression.
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 2:45 PM edit delete reply

Oh .. I read the "fine" like when a wife says "fine" to her husband ... he damn well *knows* things aren't 'fine' and she'll have her revenge on him real soon, even if he haven't figured out what he did wrong.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 3:18 PM edit delete reply

Oh you read it right.. Marcus isnt always the brightest picking up subtleties...
cattservant 8th Jul 2013, 5:50 PM edit delete reply

He penetrates instead of infiltrates...
Stormwind13 8th Jul 2013, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

I get the feeling that Mr. Black has a tendency to tell someone one thing and then do whatever he thinks is RIGHT. So agreeing with the Major might not be as cut and dry as one might thing.

On the previous page, panel 3 Mr. Black tells Connie to "Come talk to me later and we'll go over the details." I wonder if those details MIGHT completely change the way things go as far as Connie is concerned.
KarToon12 8th Jul 2013, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

I love Connie's expression. She's trying to put up a brave face, but she must be terrified. :(
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 3:19 PM edit delete reply

Just a touch. from her POV shes just been told oh we are going to handcuff you and stick you out on a stick as bait.. who wouldnt be scared.

You know, I don't really notice the shadows in this comic much. Probably because they are done well enough that they seem natural so I don't get a !!! moment where I think they don't look right. I like what you've done with them In panels 2 and 4. Nice contrast and sets the mood just right. Also I seem to have missed the pattern on Veronica's dress up until now. It's the little things like that makes it all the more worthwhile to browse the archives to see what else I've missed. I've gone through the entire run no less than six times since I discovered Data Chasers. Like all of the good stories I've read over the years, once isn't enough.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 11:15 AM edit delete reply

aww now your just making me blush! THANK YOU! :D
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 12:01 PM edit delete reply

Heh, I have to admit, I have not run it trough 6 times ... 2 or 3 times or so, I think.

As for the shadows, they are almost best when you don't notice them, because the focus should be on the characters, and not their shadows.

Well ... sometimes at least.
Draginbeard 8th Jul 2013, 10:49 AM edit delete reply

I'm with Don B. on your shadow work. 4th panel in particular, came out excellent!
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 11:18 AM edit delete reply

YAY! i really do try to keep a eye on the shadows - if i do it right they arent really noticable unless I want them to be.
Rashala 8th Jul 2013, 1:11 PM edit delete reply

Okay am I the only one who noticed in panel 2 and 3 that Tedee seems a little EXCITED..... In her chest area?
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 1:18 PM edit delete reply

Well, obviously she's not wearing a bra, so a little poking trough would be normal.
cattservant 8th Jul 2013, 1:40 PM edit delete reply

One post for each one? (EDIT: Never mind!)

[I think her SLTs are having illusions of grandeur, given their relative size to their surrounding location!]
Highlander55 8th Jul 2013, 3:02 PM edit delete reply
I noticed it too! But zoom in and looks like a glitch or over spray when colored. Unless her nipples are skin tone and not normally darker.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 3:17 PM edit delete reply

actually - Ill claim responsibility for her shirt whoops. the shirt looked fine form the front BUT I didnt check it from all angles. and when im shooting i guess i just happened to grab ALL the angles you can see down her shirt. her nipples are actually flattened, its a light trick that makes them look otherwise , my apologys >_<
Sheela 8th Jul 2013, 4:27 PM edit delete reply

Aww,you mean she wasn't deploying her SLT's ? :D
highlander55 8th Jul 2013, 4:41 PM edit delete reply

Good thing she wasn't wearing a skirt. Or maybe too bad she wasn't.
Rashala 8th Jul 2013, 5:02 PM edit delete reply

sorry bout the double posts ...was not meant as a joke..was my isp beign a pain
Centcomm 8th Jul 2013, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

cattservant 8th Jul 2013, 5:52 PM edit delete reply
