Chapter 6: Page 21 – Focus On Lily

Posted by / in Comic / 65 comments

New page! Sorry it’s a little late, the kiddo has been off his sleep schedule lately.

Couple of things:

  1. It’s my birthday this week!  So, you should like, give me something?  I dunno, maybe a nice comment, or a social share, or a fanart/fanfic or something ;)
  2. My wife opened up an Etsy shop for cool crocheted things.  So if  you want a viking beard hat, or maybe a crocheted Tenzin or deathbot (I’m 99% confident she could make one as a custom order), or a stuffed animal for a kid you know, whatever, you should check it out :D
  3. Next week, when this chapter ends, I’m going to be running a week long scavenger hunt/sweepstakes, hiding clues/answers all around our websites and social medias and whatnot.  For every clue you find you’ll get an entry into the prize raffle drawing.  I’ll probably give away some posters and ebooks, but I’d love to hear some other prize suggestions :)
  • HAPPY BERFDAY!
    Also, LILY quick perform an evasive spin move!

    • *UP+UP+B*? Oops, she uppercutted the doctor. Eh.

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        “Get over here!” *harpoon toss*

        Happy birthday!

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        Lily summons “brick”, it is very effective!

      • DrCrazy102

        No, no, Lily merely corrected his fall. Lily wouldn’t hurt someone intentionally … right?

        HAPPY BIRTHDAY

  • Amberlight

    Tenain wakes up to save the girl, jumps from the bed and throws Jane’s core that is tethered to hi skull across the room, smashing her on the wall. He falls from the bed and hits the floor with an exposed part of his head, resulting in a fatal brain injury. The scalpel hits Lily in the neck and severs the artery, she bleeds to death before help can arrive. The end.

    Also Happy Birthday!

    • Shihchuan

      CRUEEEELLLLLL

    • Delta-v

      Wow, It’s like you’re a mind reader or something! The whole everybody’s-a-zombie 7th chapter was supposed to be a surprise. :(

      ^^

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        Just wait until the “we accidentally opened a portal to what could only be termed hell and eldritch things are coming out” section.
        Tenzombie and crew still don’t catch a break even then.

        • Dusty Coyote

          Matt, have you been playing Munchkin bites? I swear about a week ago you kicked down a door and found HP Lovecraft, thus becoming a cultist.

          • Matt [in Middletown]

            Heh heh heh.

    • You’re even eviler than I am ;P

  • Hipopótamo

    Now that’s really giving him a good shake-up!

  • Well, it is a series full of Sharp instruments….

    • NickDA

      Insert cymbal crash here… then inform the pun police!

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        *Pun police arrive…. they all look like Deathbot*

      • Pemigewasset ex pat

        s/:rimshot

    • Dusty Coyote

      In the next page, Tenzin gets to the point before lily does.

      • It may seem impossible,but need’ll drive him to cut through all obstacles. (Oops! Sorry, kid.)

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    Doc “doom” Kavi, Jane is SO correct in messing with him.
    That is, if that is actually happening out there.
    *screen saver mode…activated. Thank you for downloading the ‘horror theme’ pack! Enjoy!*

  • Ydo Ucare

    Is the text in the first panel supposed to be legible? It’s pretty hard to read. Or is it just supposed to be background muttering? It’s sort of distracting either way.

    On a less whiny note, happy birthday week to you!

  • Pemigewasset ex pat

    Happy birthday in surviving another trip around the sun,

    • Is this a real link? I can’t make it work.

      Oh wait, replace the word dot with a . and then it works :D That must be the link you commented that got caught in the spam filter.

      • Pemigewasset ex pat

        Yeah, some websites using discuss have some arcane rules & object to url & then there’s the nice language nanny which prevents using grown-up language like ‘a$$ume’ which then necessitates a$inine looking workarounds… you can’t say bloody, assume, or anything which might be remotely offensive to somebody or appear to have its root in salty language at the WMUR website, my home state television station (New Hampshire) where I keep abreast of the news.

        • Matt [in Middletown]

          Fox news used to use Discuss.
          Back in the ’06 midterms, Discuss blocked the use of the words shellacked, shellacking, shellac, etc.
          Of course, that may have been more the moderator they had as the moderator also had an issue with the statement “the sound of failure is “clunk”.”
          Fox dumped Discuss in favor of something else.

          • NickDA

            I have loosened up a few of the Disqus rules, and whitelabel people once they have been around for a while… I think the only swear words I left in the “blacklist” were the ones that were just flat out vulgarly offensive (racial slurs, sexist slurs etc)… but the good ol fashion swear words shouldn’t be a problem when used in context and not aggressively against another commenter :D

          • Matt [in Middletown]

            It was really weird to see what they had blocked at Fox.
            One news article in particular had any reference to basketball blocked.
            Why, who knows.
            I abandoned that particular Discuss profile a long time ago.
            There were times you’d type all of one sentence with nothing offensive, hit post and see the “you can’t post offensive material” message for absolutely no reason.
            Then, you’d see people posting single words in an effort to figure out what they’d blocked that day.
            LOL!

          • Pemigewasset ex pat

            Remember the scene in the incredible’s when Bob is so frustrated and so aggravated he hoists the car over his head? I make the same faces and noises when I see “Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by WMUR.” & I haven’t said anything foul or vulgar. Then I check to see if I accidentally said something about an assumption or an associates degree, but sometimes you just can’t find whatever has the cyber gestapo in a tizzy.

          • Matt [in Middletown]

            Sometimes all it takes is to say something that requires an associates degree.
            *Snicker*
            And yeah, I know the feeling described.

          • NickDA

            Cyber Gestapo… my new title

          • Pemigewasset ex pat

            Well whoever is in charge of it for channel nine as it cranked up to the “nobody’s allowed to say anything that might offend somebody else or hurt somebody else’s feelings” level.
            Salty language not withstanding.
            Frakking bloody smegging everybody play nicely with each other minder.

      • Pemigewasset ex pat

        You can’t say bloody, assume, or anything which might be remotely offensive to somebody or appear to have its root in salty language.

  • Once again, the day is saved by Dr. Butterfingers.

  • Hornet

    Tenzin’s going to end up falling on the floor isn’t he?

    • I’m enjoying seeing everyone’s thoughts and theories, but shall remain quiet until this resolves in the next couple of pages :P

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        Pop up onto one leg and then it’s “Timbeeeeeeer!”

        • Chuck Elliott

          Or maybe Jane is making him see that, and no danger is really happening. She believes a perceived threat to the girl will wake him up, so she generates a fake one

          • Matt [in Middletown]

            Yup.
            She downloaded the “horror themes” screensaver pack awhile ago.
            She hasn’t had occasion to use it.
            Until now.
            Of course, she’s in Tenzin’s head via a large spike.
            I wonder what happens if she gets unplugged while in his skull?
            Welcome to meatspace, Jane.
            Enjoy the view.

        • DrCrazy102

          “Posh voice” I believe you are meaning “Tenziiinnn” but that would be hilarious to see

      • Pemigewasset ex pat

        I have a thought and theory but it doesn’t have a great deal to do with what’s currently going on. Something that I read once that I’d really get a kick out of seeing actually.
        So eventually Tenzin et al have a face to face parlay with the tribal leaders and generals of the attacking forces. (Visions of mad Max beyond thunder dome esque scene)
        Bored, Tenzin begins examining the medals they garishly festooned themselves with and discovers that high president so & so is the sixth grade national spelling champion or some such thing.

  • monolithic222

    I wonder what Lily is thinking. Anyway, now would be a good time to wake up, Tenzin (though I suppose he’d be too far away and too slow to step in, but even so).
    Happy Birthday to Daniel, I hope you have a great week :-)

  • Delta-v

    Happy Birthday, Boss! It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. :)

  • Dusty Coyote

    Jane. Stop it.

  • As an IT professional by day… This is why you have to tape down all wires. Junk gets dangerous.

    • NickDA

      Gaffer tape… the only thing in this world that is better than duct tape…

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        In floor channels.
        Sometimes works better.
        Unless some idiot makes a bird nest of cat 5 in there.
        Then you want to hunt him down and devour his soul over Sterno flames with a fondue fork.

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    Prize: Viktor’s Advanced Tactical Brick Mk1 mod0 with finger grip channels and Minerva logo?
    Engraved with a Viktor quote?

    • So…a normal brick? :P

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        Pretty much!

        • If you win, I’ll mail you a brick :P

          • Matt [in Middletown]

            Lol!
            I likely won’t win, so no worries!

    • Adriano

      I want this brick so bad !

  • Adriano

    Happy birthy late ! Sorry guy I was out of the comp for a week or more. Like maybe two ? Whatever, have a long and nice life, Dan !

    About the page : Oh God, is really Dr Kavi the mad scientist that left-handed ?

  • Adriano

    For the shop, it doesn’t accept MCs ? I think I got some to spend ;)

  • Ow man, noooo… you should organize those wires man! Who am I to talk, we just organized all our cords and wires at the studio after 2 years of working there and a number of stumbling accidents… (Happy belated birthday, btw! Though I technically already wished you happy birthday… kind of… ;) )

  • Citrus Reaper

    D’aw shit. This guy should pick up his feet when he walks.

  • theRoUS

    I smell a Jane manipulation of the vidcall..
