An easier mistake to make than at first imagined.

Felixscout July 25, 2018 at 8:22 am 10 months ago Oh dear. I mean it’s an easy mistake to make but still. Oh dear. Schismatism July 25, 2018 at 8:30 am 10 months ago I’m surprised the Gounder hasn’t pulled the trigger yet. I mean, not that it’d likely help against an unclamped Eeb, but you’d think… Also, Devyat, why are you giving him time to think about things? KQY July 25, 2018 at 8:51 am 10 months ago Now, I have this extra dialogue in my head regarding her seeing blood vessels in his head…. 😉 So, she didn’t give him as much time as she might have. Kaidah July 25, 2018 at 9:06 am 10 months ago For muttering “Oh crap” as he faced down an unclamped Eeb he just threatened to not only enslave but kill her friend in the process, the winner for understatement of the storyline goes to…The Gounder! PeterK July 25, 2018 at 12:16 pm 10 months ago Ah the sound effect of the Gounder’s hope of winning this fight completely fizzling out. tony July 25, 2018 at 12:47 pm 10 months ago I really want to know why Devyat dresses like a hobo… Oh yeah, also, Space Trawler is awesome! I had the good fortune to discover it recently and spend many satisfying hours reading from the beginning. Spacetrawler should be two (or three) movies. It’s my favorite web comic, with Unsounded a close second. I hope Devyat “adjusted” the Gounder’s attitude so that he’s the polar opposite of all he had aspired to be, and he just wants to apologize and fix everyone a nice cup of tea now. Felixscout July 25, 2018 at 1:09 pm 10 months ago Not a hobo but a babushka. So she dresses like a Russian grandmother/old woman. Christopher Baldwin July 25, 2018 at 1:11 pm 10 months ago Mixed with traditional Eeb garb. tony July 26, 2018 at 1:26 pm 10 months ago thanks! I didn’t catch the Eeb aspects. tony July 26, 2018 at 1:24 pm 10 months ago ohhh.. thanks! I never would have realized babushka, but I get the Russian connection, Dimitri her father, but why grandmotherly? That I don’t get at all. Muzhik July 25, 2018 at 6:50 pm 10 months ago @tony, Oh, yes. She adjusted “… the Gounder’s attitude so that he’s the polar opposite of all he had aspired to be …” He is now dead, which is pretty much the polar opposite of “alive”. (For extremely small values of life, of course.) jediadept July 25, 2018 at 2:24 pm 10 months ago Mr Baldwin, I really like the daily format. Thank you! Night-Gaunt49 July 25, 2018 at 11:32 pm 10 months ago It appears that Grounder’s grandiosity made him forgetful. Devyat reminded him of it. Then when that happened he deflated. (I liked how you accomplished that, very visual and easily understood.) Such is the Eeb legacy. Also just enjoying all that goes on in these stories. Been reading them for years. Peter Rogan July 25, 2018 at 11:52 pm 10 months ago No no no no no no! Now Devyat’s inserted herself into the sticky web of action/consequence/responsibility that Jabby likes to apply to lesser beings. Heaven knows if there’s a way out now. Is she complicit with Jabby? Does she now owe Mauricio the death she practically handed to him on a silver platter? With the Gounder out of the picture, it’s Eeb capability versus Jabby’s endless inventiveness and its fondness to project its own urges onto others in the name of ‘justice.’ IF, that is, Devyat doesn’t get confused long enough to get manipulated in turn. It’s not just the slinten pod that pulls this sort of shit, you know. Leave a Reply to Night-Gaunt49 Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
