Miwa's character will become a lot clearer soon.

Sorry, it took a few hours longer than usual.

It is "Peace in Atlantis". With tranquilizer darts too!

Hmm. I suppose she really is a carefully assembled person. An ass only because it gives her a shield? I find that a bit hard to believe, though I do buy she's just a timid, nervous person on the inside. Perhaps the near death experience is what made her build the wall. She was much nicer before?

And /I/ want a hug by a girl with an ample bosom for me to rest my head on. All warm and soft and cozy even when wet...

What? She's not an ass normally!

Just to Mary.
JasperWB 29th Apr 2012, 10:58 PM edit delete reply
A passive aggressive ass to everyone. Less blatant to anyone not Mary. Maybe I read too much into things but I felt she thought she superior even to her friends. I probably just didn't like her and was looking for it though lol

And now, according to the A N page #041 we may begin to find out why.
JasperWB 29th Apr 2012, 11:09 PM edit delete reply
Well I may have been seeing some things that weren't there either. Matter of opinion stuff. All we will find out for sure is things between her and Mary, which I can hardly wait for! I'm guessing it will be complex and involve a story/flashback.
Sheela 30th Apr 2012, 1:50 AM edit delete reply
Well .. if it's so complex that it'll require a flashback, we'll need to get our nutcase conspiracies / theories into the comments before it happens ...

Miwa is really an andriod, that used to be human, but had parts of her brain and body replaced with computer / robot stuff due to a cancerous tumor. Hence why the lightning hit her because she has so much metal in her body. Offcourse, the lightning also blipped her QMem and triggered a partial PEC (Progressive Ego Collapse), but being part human, they couldn't just reset her to factory default, so now she walks around becoming smarter and smarter as she develops her human brain/computer chip hybrid intelligense, but also crazier and crazier !!

How is that for a nutcase theory ? :D

She was hit by lightning because she was carrying an umbrella...

You say "android" but seem to be talking about a "cyborg". She's definitely had pieces of her replaced by machinery!
JasperWB 30th Apr 2012, 2:07 AM edit delete reply
Eh. I'm really not sure what will occur. It will probably be emotional and I doubt a real fight anymore. Arguing maybe, but I think everyone will move forward. Good things I hope. I'm guessing we will learn about Miwas past now and everything. Especially the lightning incident.

And maybe, just maybe, Carol will appear somehow! My magic 8 ball disagrees though. But what the hell does it know anyway?

Ehem and a human with robot parts ins a cyborg, a robot with human parts is a android.
Sheela 30th Apr 2012, 5:08 AM edit delete reply
Ooops .. yeah, I meant Cyborg, not Android. My bad.

And dammit View ... umbrellas aren't very nutcasey ! XD

Ummm, no.
A human with robot parts is a cyborg.

A robot with human parts… Is still a robot. Someone else can have the protracted argument about which part defines the human or robot.

But an android is a robot. A robot that looks very convincingly like a human.
Also, an android is a cell phone running a certain operating system. But I don't think anybody here is getting thoooose mixed up with anything else. :-)

jedi power: calming hugs :)

with a wet face there is no proof of tears if she cries. no proof of tears and her rep of semi cold hearted superior intellect is secure.

Mary is a naiad and water is her power.
JasperWB 29th Apr 2012, 11:57 PM edit delete reply
Imagine taking a nice, hot shower with her. I'm starting to believe the naiad theory. Like Gremlins but in a positive way.

Or did Gremlins get evil when they were fed at night? What the hell did water do to them?

Made more!
JasperWB 30th Apr 2012, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
Oh yeah! Well then in any case its best to keep her wet.

Heh. Heh. Double entendres.
Sheela 30th Apr 2012, 1:52 AM edit delete reply
I'm pretty sure Mary's power is "Boobs". XD

To be applied topically too!
DarkGod75 30th Apr 2012, 3:05 AM edit delete reply
My theory goes a lot deeper, this entire comic has been about a single person having to deal with all of this, they are each character, and they feel each emotion, there was a glitch in the system, where now the person was separated into each character and now has a connection to each. Though if 2 are separated for a period of time then they begin to self collapse and become a shell of anger and confusion.

Hmm, the Pokemon is Ash on His Deathbed and Ed, Edd n Eddy is Purgatory theory. It's always such a depressing thought!

Wow... um... depression.

It's a really common "easy out" theory. That is, you can point it at literally any story, no matter what it is. You can point it at Friends, or Bugs Bunny, or whatever.

You get used to hearing it. I hear someone say it about some story or another just about every week.

I much prefer "X is secretly a time lord", though.
JasperWB 30th Apr 2012, 4:34 AM edit delete reply
X would be Hans here. You know its true. I mean he was reborn, the hat, his 'tude. It was fairly obvious what he was behind the scenes.

As I was going up the stairs
I met a man who wasn't there
He wasn't there again today
I wish I wish he'd go away

I wonder if that basement full of super computers is doing something besides 'weather reports'. Something prosthetic perhaps?

RE: Easy outs; What about the asteroidial option? It's way more flashy!
cattservant 30th Apr 2012, 6:19 AM edit delete reply
How about a quite possibly real thing? The Universe is alive and self-aware.* We, being the same to whatever degree, are the neurons of it's sensory system. Sampling, processing, and transmitting the inputs back to the Center.
Thinking, therefore Being...

*(God, if you like that label.)

This was just nothing like I expected, exactly. And it was wonderful. And… And…

Awww, man, you totally got me, View! :D
