Just a update people!

Thanks to targeted antibiotics and painkillers im back on the production of pages! I thought this would be a filler week but i pulled it off with the help of Rose doing a unbelievably fast script!

I did ask for some filler pieces and three people responded with lightning swiftness! Ill be running those on tuesday and thrusday so you guys get a page every single day ! :D enjoy!

and a double thank you to Revzet , Ilvaris and Prof Ethiric for guest art this week! :D
Ill post comic links on those pages! So give em a round of thanks! I have a appt with the oral surgeon tomorrow ( Monday ) to find out how much it will cost to get my issues taken care of.


PS Also Ben had his surgery and came though it with flying colors!

Tokyo Rose
When we brought Ben home and put him in his "recovery room", he got annoyed; he clearly wanted to have the run of the house as usual and wasn't feeling poorly. By Saturday, his leg looked awfully red and swollen, but a quick trip to the vet for a look-see brought the reassurance that the condition was as expected following a surgical procedure. (I might be a paranoid pet parent, but I prefer to be paranoid and proven wrong than overly-assured and not careful enough.) He's behaving fairly normally at this point as far as eating, drinking, grooming, and so on. He does favor that leg at times when he's moving around, but not as much as he did prior to the surgery--which probably says something about how much discomfort he was in.

The test results on the tissue should come back by the end of the week. I'm trying to take it one day at a time.

Did Samanta actually look ..... Scared?
Centcomm 7th Dec 2015, 12:22 AM edit delete reply

maybe.. just a little.. Shes watching a single woman cutting down men right and left. and no one can seem to hurt the other one. so yeah .. a bit unsettling . even for a cassian.
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:11 PM edit delete reply

Samantha knows when she's looking at a dangerous piece of hardware.

And you never, NEVER, want to be looking down the business end of the barrel of big a cannon.
TeeDee brought one, y'know? :)
Dragonrider 7th Dec 2015, 12:12 AM edit delete reply

With the turrets active and firing this is officially a Charlie Foxtrot that has gone SNAFU beyond comprehension unless Silver gets them shut down.
Centcomm 7th Dec 2015, 12:23 AM edit delete reply

oh yes :D
Fairportfan 7th Dec 2015, 1:46 AM edit delete reply

Astra would say that Charlie is definitely dancing the Foxtrot.
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:12 PM edit delete reply

The real question is, just how much of a tank is TeeDee and Ada?
If they can just take on the turrets head-on, then it's time to get the heck out of their way.
Stever 7th Dec 2015, 12:18 AM edit delete reply

Looks like it would be easy to be sliced to spaghetti in that room :O
Centcomm 7th Dec 2015, 12:23 AM edit delete reply

zip zap pew ! :D
revzet 7th Dec 2015, 12:34 AM edit delete reply

Yay! Glad to see you're getting better :)
Centcomm 7th Dec 2015, 12:36 AM edit delete reply

Yes painkillers and antibotics for the win! :D I am feeling a bit better.. and a bit spacy :D
chk 7th Dec 2015, 8:00 PM edit delete reply

Nothing wrong with spacy.
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:13 PM edit delete reply

Wait, waiiit a minute ... there's people who DON'T act spacey all the time?

... I don't believe you!
The Old Scribe 7th Dec 2015, 1:37 AM edit delete reply

Painkillers are our friends. Good luck at the doc's, Cent and Yay for Ben!

Samanta is a tad rattled seeing the meatware being sliced to ribbons, but now she has the gun turrets to fight with. I'm not sure what sort of firepower is in those turrets or if the shields can handle it. Either way, Ada and TeeDee aren't gonna just stand there and take it.
Centcomm 7th Dec 2015, 9:06 PM edit delete reply

thank you and nope Teedee and Ada arent going to just stand there :D
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:14 PM edit delete reply

Well, if they COULD take the turrets head-on, you'd definitly want to get out of their way. >_<
ProfEtheric 7th Dec 2015, 1:58 AM edit delete reply

First and foremost: I am SO glad you are feeling better, Centy. And that Ben is better. Now to see the damage... :P

Speaking of damage, I can't WAIT to see this scene through. You ladies are bringing s the finest in quality ultraviolence. (Also, I am clinging to the hope that maybe, just MAYBE Merek or Bishop can be saved. I know it's not likely, but it was never OFICIALLY called...)

And... YAY! Bonus days! I'm really curious what lirv and Revzet made, less curious about that other guy (for some reason).
Lukkai 7th Dec 2015, 11:12 PM edit delete reply

Not completely sure about Merek. But I'm afraid Bishop is a goner. That hit looked like straight through the throat (and probably back out through the neck).
mjkj 7th Dec 2015, 4:21 AM edit delete reply

Wow, great. Let us hope that Dr. Silver is quick enough...
Timotheus 7th Dec 2015, 5:08 AM edit delete reply

Why wait for Dr Silver? Teedee has the turret problem solver, she just has to be able to line of sight them quick enough. Considering they're not even moving targets...
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:16 PM edit delete reply

True, non-moving targets are easy targets.

Especially for an angry android with a big gun. :)
Also, right about now, TeeDee is probably happy to be a small target ... aka. the "pre-teen twerp model".
cattservant 7th Dec 2015, 5:38 AM edit delete reply

frying pans and fire
Stormwind13 7th Dec 2015, 11:34 AM edit delete reply

Lots and lots of fire, catt. If it keeps up, it will MELT the frying pan!
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:17 PM edit delete reply

Eh .. I usually set the pans on fire, and shoot them at the enemy with a rail gun. :)
Matt Knab 7th Dec 2015, 5:55 AM edit delete reply

This is starting to feel like the battle where everyone dies. o.O
velvetsanity 7th Dec 2015, 6:09 AM edit delete reply

Everyone dies in every battle. Even those that walk away afterward die a little...

There are no victors in war. Only survivors.
Visvires 7th Dec 2015, 9:39 AM edit delete reply
Except TeeDee. TeeDee grows a little, and learns to stop hating all humans.
Sheela 8th Dec 2015, 8:18 PM edit delete reply

TeeDee is always a winner, since her video feed channel gets new material, and she earns a pretty penny on the ad revenue. :)
Wolfsbane 7th Dec 2015, 6:15 AM edit delete reply

TR - Very glad to hear about Ben's recovery. Lots of good wishes and prayers going your way.
sigpig 7th Dec 2015, 10:46 AM edit delete reply

TR, you are so perfectly right about Ben's hiding his pain. First, it's a survival instinct, because an injured cat (dog, or any domesticated fuzzy-people) would be a target for predators and/or their pack hierarchy. Second, as you well know, (so-called) "pets" (really, fuzzy family members) are pain sponges. When you are hurting, they come to help take the pain away. Fingers (ant tows) crossed for Ben!

And CC - I well know that there is almost NOTHING that can come close to the pain of injured teeth. Sending good thoughts your way for a full recovery. Just do yourself a favour - do what the nice dentist says and you WILL heal faster!
Stormwind13 7th Dec 2015, 8:51 AM edit delete reply

I'm glad you are feeling better CentComm. Hope the Dentist can get you all fixed up now that the infection is under control.

And yay, Rose. Glad Ben is doing better. Hope that the test results are negative, so you can share company for a few more years.
Haegan2005 7th Dec 2015, 9:06 AM edit delete reply

Ladies I am pleased beyond all expectations that Cent is feeling better and Rose has had a successful op on her little boy.

by the way, dang cool turrets! Good dialogue and nice effects as always!
Dragonrider 7th Dec 2015, 1:52 PM edit delete reply

Rose, thanks for the updat. Keeping thoughts and prayers your and Cent's way.
Wolfsbane 7th Dec 2015, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

It just occurred to me that if those turrets keep coming online in various places around the castle, we may have a case of turrets syndrome here....
chk 7th Dec 2015, 8:04 PM edit delete reply

Har, har.
Lukkai 7th Dec 2015, 11:14 PM edit delete reply

*rimshot*

It's only those at this door though, as far as we know.
KarToon12 7th Dec 2015, 6:21 PM edit delete reply

Glad to hear that both of you are doing fairly well, given the circumstances. <3
DLKmusic 7th Dec 2015, 8:07 PM edit delete reply

Hey Cent... glad the antibiotics are helping, infected teeth are no fun at all!

Also, I'm thrilled that Ben is back and almost his normal self, Rose! I'll be praying for both!

I have really mixed feelings about this page... I want Samanta to survive, but not at the cost of Ada and TeeDee. I'm really hoping the two of you are pulling something out of your evil bag of tricks here!
Lukkai 7th Dec 2015, 11:15 PM edit delete reply

Hmm... Can we interpret that last panel as Samanta having run out of bullets?
Stormwind13 7th Dec 2015, 11:57 PM edit delete reply

It is possible, Lukkai. Or she has to concentrate on the turrets and can't spare the attention to continue to fire down range.
Lukkai 8th Dec 2015, 7:57 PM edit delete reply

I wondered a little about which Cassian Tennyo is. And found she's the third one that Noctis found to be offline when trying to get status reports. We know the situation of the other two (Malati, Hrist) and that Nox (still answering then) has since been eliminated.
We don't know as of yet why Belladonna's transmission was lost. Eliminated, damaged... several things would be possible here.
Stormwind13 8th Dec 2015, 8:46 PM edit delete reply

Yeah me too Lukkai. Tennyo's transmissions seem to indicate that she has suffered damage, possibly severe damage. Her range may be restricted by the damage.
