Re: Sketch of the Day

Apparently my timezone puts me in a curious position where i see most of thesketched before other people wake up so: We have a wholesome moment between Raine and Rose on a nice family visit to the festival . I am not sold on the whole aesthetics of the piece, but otherwise it is adorable. Both have...

Re: Comic for February 16th, 2019: Outside World Lesson One: Emotional Support

Tom probably is stretching himself rather far just in terms of the number of apparently-central characters. His characters list contains 20 "major" characters, of which three are dead and one's taking a very long nap - but that leaves sixteen. All of whom are at the estate, along with Rose and Reni ...

Re: Comic for February 16th, 2019: Outside World Lesson One: Emotional Support

"Cousin" in English can be a general word to refer to *any* sort of distant relation, though usually a blood relation. Thus the sentences "Raine and Rose are cousins" and "Rose is Raine's aunt" both sound completely valid and normal to my ears. I would agree that they both sound valid, but to me th...

Re: Comic for Feb 2nd, 2019: The Dungeons

And I still think that Rose didn't teleport them. She just triggered a preset spell, cast by Nora or Trace, with a preset destination. If I'm right, asking why she teleported them there rather than elsewhere is like asking why you drop things down rather than sideways.

Re: Comic for February 10, 2019: Madelyn's Motivation

Wow, for a supposedly military-based nation, they don't have much respect for Covert Operations do they. I think it's more a question of whether, when looking at Madelyn Adelaide, one sees "a covert operator" or "the king's daughter". She's been prominent as "the king's daughter" for 17 years. She'...

Re: Comic for January 17th, 2019: Between a Rock and a Lizard Place

Oh, MSWord's SPELLING checker is a completely different matter. It's good. The only gripe I have with that is that I need a set of custom dictionaries for THIS world and story, and an entirely different set of custom dictionaries for THAT world and story - and changing custom dictionaries is not a s...

Re: Comic for January 17th, 2019: Between a Rock and a Lizard Place

I'm fairly used to writing in such a way that Word's grammar checker doesn't yell at me.
For me, that was "turn it off" - it was worse than useless.

Re: Comic for January 17th, 2019: Between a Rock and a Lizard Place

I have never thought of using google translate on that phrase. And let me tell you: the results it is way off. However artificial intelligence has a lot of problems dealing with context and in this case it would need a priori knowledge of what I am actually referencing. So I am not surprised. Earli...

Re: Comic for Feb 2nd, 2019: The Dungeons

I don't think Maddie thinks she should be a clone - rather, she believes some other people (including several generals) think she should be a clone, and resents it. And I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if there's a substantial amount of evidence supporting that view. (But if she thought about h...

Re: Comic for January 17th, 2019: Between a Rock and a Lizard Place

Yeah, on the old version when I zoom in to the point that the comic page is about twice the width of my screen I can see a faint line that might be pink.

Anyone who thinks that's suggestive is trying too hard.

Re: Comic for Feb 2nd, 2019: The Dungeons

And for a militaristic society, they seem to have a poor grasp of just how devastatingly effective a good covert operative is. I don't think it's that - it seems she's earned a good deal of respect within the Intelligence division (otherwise she wouldn't have the rank of Lieutenant, and the contend...

Re: Comic for Feb 2nd, 2019: The Dungeons

You know, leaving aside for the moment Maddie's brittle front finally shattering, There's still the question of why did Rose teleport them to the dungeon ? . Maybe it's the only place she can teleport people (because it was only included as a security mechanism), sure, but why would OldTrace have p...

Re: Comic for Feb 2nd, 2019: The Dungeons

Personally I can relate to Maddie and yeah it really sucks. People here talk about how she shouldn't be feeling bad about her size when her mother is such a big gal, obviously she shouldn't Shouldn't, I agree. But, given what we've seen of basitin psychology, it would be rather surprising if she di...

Re: Comic for Feb 2nd, 2019: The Dungeons

I never did believe her claim of being almost 14, in a species that ages "like humans". It didn't fit with her rank, her being acceptable as fill-in for the (as yet undetermined) Intelligence General, or her alleged status as one of the Basitins' more-highly-regarded spies. 17... in that society... ...

Re: Sketch of the Day

Didn't know Judy Hopps was that kinky. In most Zootopia fanfic, she is. Usually, the results are about what you'd expect - in one author's work, the two of them end up adopting an orphan squirrel. However, there is at least one author who has Judy give birth to twins, one a bunny and the other a fo...
