And they DID get Dr. Silver. Pocket change, but I love that they dinged her for her part in things. :-D
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:20 PM edit delete reply

yep .. that they did.
Rashala 22nd Sep 2013, 9:05 PM edit delete reply

Love her self realization....

*hands tedee a massive shovel* You got yourself into this hole you gotta dig yourself out
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:20 PM edit delete reply

oh i think she needs a good deal more than a shovel.

Here are the keys to a tunneling machine. Signal us when you are about to surface. We will rendezvous then.

may need that mining drill from star trek

I don't think that this bodes well for TeeDee. At least she now realizes just how much of an asshole she was being. I hope Ada can forgive Veronica, Marcus and TeeDee for their roles in the fight. Connie requires none of course. Hers would be the only actions during that mess that Ada would approve of.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

yep - theres a lot of factors here.
Don B. 23rd Sep 2013, 7:42 PM edit delete reply
actually, now that I've had time to think about it, this incident may get TeeDee to reconsider her views on "meat sacks" in general. Her discussion with Ada just before their encounter with a plasma rifle was very much a mirror image of Aurelia's views towards androids. The specifics are different, but the bigotry isn't.

If only it was that easy to make bigots realise the error in their ways...
jamie59 22nd Sep 2013, 9:18 PM edit delete reply

Teedee time to find Ada & say "I'm sorry". Marcus too!
Sheela 23rd Sep 2013, 9:54 AM edit delete reply

I'm certain Ada requires many hugs in order to be appeased.

Offcourse, the fact that TeeDee isn't too much into intimacy in the first place, might have something to do with it.

Plus TeeDee's new body has proved that it's very huggable. :)
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

yeah shes gonna need heaps of the "im sorry" sauce
Antonious 23rd Sep 2013, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

Would you like that delivered in drums or tanker.
velvetsanity 22nd Sep 2013, 10:06 PM edit delete reply

And so, we learn a little tidbit about android physiology, as well as see that Teedee is definitely in a much better mental state. ^_^

Naturally, Cent, I am extremely interested in learning more about this aspect, integration, the effects of not being integrated, etc ^_~
Sheela 23rd Sep 2013, 9:57 AM edit delete reply

True ... I find her words on how she perceived her body before very interesting .. a dead shell.

No wonder she was getting the creepy crawlies.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:22 PM edit delete reply

oh its a complex subject to be sure of. and to answer sheela as well yes.. she felt trapped in a puppet body, apart from herself like nothing was real.
Antonious 23rd Sep 2013, 5:11 PM edit delete reply

Kind of like a person whose mental illness leaves them feeling like their body is a costume that they are providing movement for.

And now*
And on to Nova Roma
Where things aren't quite so reasonable...

*(That the fun and games are concluded)
mjkj 22nd Sep 2013, 11:49 PM edit delete reply

Was that not rome's motto: bread and games? So they actually trained for that.
cattservant 23rd Sep 2013, 4:28 PM edit delete reply

Panem et Circenses!
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:22 PM edit delete reply

hehe :D
Rashala 22nd Sep 2013, 11:36 PM edit delete reply

Funny thing.....I am doing what Ada is doing right now to keep my own mood from getting worse......
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:23 PM edit delete reply

yeah music can help lots - I had a song picked but Rose didnt like it..
Tokyo Rose 23rd Sep 2013, 4:44 PM edit delete reply

Seeing song lyrics written out in a static medium has always been awkward, at least to me. If the reader isn't familiar with the song, it tends to read like VERY bad poetry, since there's no reference for the intended rhythm of the words.
mjkj 23rd Sep 2013, 4:54 PM edit delete reply

So true, Rose.
mjkj 22nd Sep 2013, 11:46 PM edit delete reply


Poor Ada *hugs her*

Well, at least TeeDee has found reason again. And yayy for dr. silver having to pay more :) even if it is just a hundred.

Re: alt text: Yes I did :) thank you so much.
Sheela 23rd Sep 2013, 9:58 AM edit delete reply

Ada requires many hugs to become happy again!

But only from very specific persons.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:23 PM edit delete reply

yeah Ada actually does have a temper .. somewhere :D
Draginbeard 23rd Sep 2013, 12:36 AM edit delete reply

Im glad to see Dr. S got her fine, though it could have been worse, all things considered.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:24 PM edit delete reply

oh could have been MUCH worse.
Mayyday 23rd Sep 2013, 3:59 AM edit delete reply

That awkward moment when you realize what an asshole you've been.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:24 PM edit delete reply

those are the WORST moments .. when you realize you are totally in the wrong.
Dragonrider 23rd Sep 2013, 5:34 AM edit delete reply

Who is this and what have you done with TeeDee?
Stormwind13 23rd Sep 2013, 8:16 AM edit delete reply

LOL Dragaonrider. TeeDee still needs to be shipped home, in my opinion. I wouldn't miss her in the least.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:25 PM edit delete reply

awww - she had a lot to deal with. I do realize that shes done some major damage but remember these are all friends and this IS her very first "reload" from death - its enough to rattle anyone.
Pirtnac 23rd Sep 2013, 12:05 PM edit delete reply
So I just realized: TeeDee was running in safe mode all this time. I hereby forgive all transgressions, since that would be a justifiable excuse for crimes far higher than a bar fight.
Draginbeard 23rd Sep 2013, 12:21 PM edit delete reply

Safe mode?

She has been an ass since before her new body. Since then she has been boiling over for a fight and ready to kill for no very good reason.

This is one of the few redeeming moments she has shown (and its basically an inner moment), in or out of this new body.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:26 PM edit delete reply

wait till tomorrow Dragin :D
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:26 PM edit delete reply

Safe Mode .. thats actually a good way to put it :D
Toaster 23rd Sep 2013, 2:14 PM edit delete reply
I think Ada wants more than a hug from TeeDee, remember her very first question when she say TeeDee's new body.
Someone asked a few pages back which rescue mission was the red herring, I reckon all of them. Cent Com and Rose are working together (just like in writing this comic) and their goal is to save one of their own, humans are incidental to that.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:26 PM edit delete reply

my lips are sealed :D
cattservant 23rd Sep 2013, 4:34 PM edit delete reply

I think the younger AI generation wants his share of the 'pie',
And that a certain 'immortal' is stirring the pudding with a big 'wooden spoon'!
Stormwind13 23rd Sep 2013, 7:33 PM edit delete reply

I don't think it is wood, Cat. I have a feeling that it is a VIRTUAL spoon. :-D
KarToon12 23rd Sep 2013, 3:27 PM edit delete reply

I'm sure Ada will forgive TeeDee; they've been friends for too long.
mjkj 23rd Sep 2013, 4:14 PM edit delete reply

I believe so, too. They are friends after all. Though I believe Ada needs a bit to cool down before she is ready to receive an apology.
Centcomm 23rd Sep 2013, 4:27 PM edit delete reply

many many years.. this wont distroy thier friendship some dings probably but not distroy it.
cattservant 23rd Sep 2013, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

Just maybe down under her 'nice layer', Ada thinks that if she and TeeDee are going to share the Major, she should go first as TeeDee is a little rough and debilitating...
Guest 23rd Sep 2013, 8:11 PM edit delete reply
I wasnt aware I was being shared
cattservant 23rd Sep 2013, 10:28 PM edit delete reply

It may be one of those mysterious 'female things'!*

*(Male participation not required.)
Antonious 23rd Sep 2013, 5:15 PM edit delete reply

The pot may not sit well on the burner or look good, but it is far from being thrown out.
xpacetrue 5th Apr 2014, 9:52 AM edit delete reply
Mr. Black was betting on the outcome and won a windfall? Hahahah! Hilarious! He did have inside information on the participants, though.

It begs to question, however, on who actually won that fight. True, by the end of the fight Teedee seemed to have the upper hand as she was doing more damage. But Marcus got the last blow in (punching Teedee across the room) before the fuzz broke things up.
Mark_L_A 26th May 2015, 5:15 PM edit delete reply

I still think Justicar Admin Frey was "Alicia" there to meet Mr. Black, which is why she was dressed so snazzy.
niauropsaka 23rd Aug 2016, 5:21 PM edit delete reply
Duke actually predicted the outcome well enough to clean up? Well, he has spent some time on an aircraft with the two cyborgs, so I guess he had an advantage there.

I really like the way you represented Ada's music here.
