She's going to go with the "Peace in Atlantis" route...*

I really admire your pacing (timing?) on this page!

*(I think. Maybe...)

Do I sense a discussion regarding Jim in the upcoming pages?
JasperWB 26th Apr 2012, 9:58 PM edit delete reply
Indeed. What a pair to discuss relationships at the moment.
cattservant 26th Apr 2012, 10:01 PM edit delete reply
You could very well be prescient!
JasperWB 26th Apr 2012, 9:56 PM edit delete reply
This has to be one of the best pages of the entire comic. Pacing, subject matter, art.

I guess I was close in my guess. Now it seems they have gone from frantic sex to romantic sex in their relationship. Bit of the old vino there.

Now give us some hot stock tips!

And, they know how to appreciate a rainy afternoon there in the future.

The only thing I predict is the return of Carol one day in the future, wearing a Playboy Bunny outfit in a sexy pose.

I saw it in an Elder Scroll.

Elder Scrolls: Sexy Bunny Girl. I'd play it.

Glad at least the loud members of my audience like the page's pacing. The pacing has been on my mind, because sometimes it's not so easy.

Well you hit it square and fair on this one!
JasperWB 26th Apr 2012, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
I would totally be in that game's Dark Brotherhood. I was happy enough with just Astrid alone from Skyrim, but to have a dozen like her wearing assassin stylized bunny outfits. Ooh and the Thieves Guild. "The Gray Rabbit" but still a fox.

And this page really is that good. The large panel depicting the whole room really seemed to do well at giving a lot of information without slowing the page down action wise. Not that I probably even know what I'm talking about.

lol , if you really want i bet you could find a mod for just that somewhere. there's a mod for just about everything now a days. i'm also really liking how the entire story is progressing. its painful to have to wait each day or so for a new page ): but i can imagine how hard doing each one of these can be

@view: Did the Octopuses get a thank-you card too?

I have to say I laughed at Mary in the last panel, a very human emotion there.

Yes, me too!!!
I read her delivery of the line to Miwa as very flat. Like "Gretel told me I have to come yell at you so I'm going to come yell at you, because Gretel told me I had to come yell at you. So ... I am."

Always possible it is a very angry delivery, too. Well, I will see in a moment.

By the way, I also noticed the thank you note with Gisele's self-portrait on it. Awesome touch!

Giselle's thank you note gave me a great big case of the Aaaaaaawwwwww's!

You know this is really not a fight I want to see. Two very passionate women. I don't know if anyone will be a victor or completely happy in the end.

Nah, who could fight with Mary?
cattservant 27th Apr 2012, 1:32 AM edit delete reply
"Peace in Atlantis." But it did require tranquilizer darts at least one time...
JasperWB 27th Apr 2012, 2:58 AM edit delete reply
I don't know. Miwa is about the only one I imagine, and only in this situation. Things just seem ominous!

The last panel is a few events in my life

I've yet to post a comment, partially because of laziness, and other because of meh. Been following for awhile now, got here originally because of cheers. I enjoy how its turning out its creating a very nice story with many open ends.

I think there needs to be an emoticon like it. Maybe ʊ_ʊ

Really love the change from happy to half tired/angry in Mary's face that was VERY expressive :D

Somebody recommended your comic to me last night, and I ended up spending the last four hours getting caught up instead of going to bed at a reasonable hour. I just wanted to tell you, what you've got here is magic. It's cute, it's beautiful, it's got all the good bits of things that matter. I really like it, and I can't wait to see more.

Statistically I didn't get much of a bump, but I sure got a whole lot of comments!

I think this might be the first onscreen interaction between Mary and and Miwa, actually(unless you count Miwa's stalking).

Funny how that works, huh?
JasperWB 27th Apr 2012, 4:15 PM edit delete reply
Waaay early they talked with one another briefly. And Miwa was actually...courteous to Mary. Enough to wish her well in her endeavors even.

Pages #40, 41 and 42. The Author Notes on page #41 contain an important reference to what is beginning to happen now.

I'm hoping for some hawt Lesbo hatesex on the next page!
