Aww. This page is making me feel emotions!
Vellikat 20th Dec 2011, 12:19 AM edit delete reply
It makes me feel slightly nauseous. So many camera angle changes...

Really? I was thinking that I'd relied too much on the same two camera angles.
JasperWB 20th Dec 2011, 12:32 AM edit delete reply
If you don't speed "read" I think the angles flow nicely
RandomTroll 20th Dec 2011, 3:09 AM edit delete reply
That is an amazing View angle.

Also, Jim has a condom(s) in his wallet, right?

Pretty much obsolete, given the fact that diseases and pregnancies are basically 100% controlled.
JasperWB 20th Dec 2011, 5:12 AM edit delete reply
Hmm. Two words, Jurassic Park.

Hmm. Two words, that's fiction.
JasperWB 20th Dec 2011, 5:21 AM edit delete reply
But it has a valid point. Man can't control everything. If disease can be virtually surpressed there must be other powerful consequences.

EDIT: I'm not trying to be an ass. I was just saying...

Waitwaitwait...view, are you implying NMTG *isn't* fiction??

Hahahahahaaaaa, awesome!

Laughter and awesome reply was to view saying "two words. That's fiction."

Why is Jim resorting to biological lovefare?

I think the first few panels are supposed to be a sort of thermal look. Not the lingering hand print on her rear there...I'd wonder if she had some kind kind of heightened sense of touch but if that was the case there would probably have been other indications earlier on.

Then again, this whole love triangle can pretty much be summed up as "Love doesn't have to make any sense."

Yes, that was immediately clear to me also. The warmth of his breath issuing in a cloud cone from his mouth, and the warmth of his touch where they are holding hands. And – this panel seemed very sexy to me – the warmth spreading throughout Mary's body, where we see just her outline, and no need to see any hint of the clothing.

I dunno if my mind is failing me, but I've seen The Princess Bride way too many times for it to be healthy and I don't ever remember Westley saying the second quote... >.< I HAVE TO KNOW IF HE DOES SAY IT AND IM JUST RETARDED OR NOT. <3

I'll give you a hint: Westley's about two hundred pounds too skinny to say that line.

yep. though i don't think the first one is a line from the movie

Mebbe I spelled it wrong. I dunno, I just thought it was fitting, given the rocky terrain.
Guest 2nd Jan 2012, 4:38 AM edit delete reply
Nah, you spelled it right, although I don't think he says I see. "You are using Bonetti's Defense against me, eh?" "Seems fitting, considering the rocky terrain!"

Something like that. Off to watch it again. xD

I don't have a DVD player here... so I'm working from memory.

You know, at about 130 I decided I really enjoyed the characters in this comic.

I adore how high-concept everything is. It's quite the Utopia.

Thanks, although I wouldn't call it a utopia.

Wait a minute, I recognize that face in panel 6 that marry has, its the "im turned on to all hell" face from Cheer.

Considering the track record of characters wearing underwear in this story, let's hope she did then...or didn't depending on peoples tastes. I won't hate.
Sheela 21st Dec 2011, 1:11 AM edit delete reply
I like panel 2 & 4, indicating how he's "filling her up with emotions" trough voice & touch.

Very elegant way to show it. :)
Sheela 21st Dec 2011, 1:12 AM edit delete reply
Panel 3 & 4 even.

'Twas kinda obvious.

Seems she feels particularly nice in the lower parts of her tummy. :D

And then he kisses her on the head .. not very sportsmanslike, is it ?

My god someone who makes amazing comics AND can quote one of the best movies ever? I think I love you.

Everyone can quote Princess Bride!

... not everyone can make comics, though...

Earlier in the comments, someone is referring to the second line and asking who speaks it. I assumed that they meant the second line heard in this panel, which seems to me to be coming from Jim. I think/thought Jim was leaning over to Mary and saying that, to be funny. Her reactions fit that interpretation, too.
