[filk] Where, Oh where, are you tonight

Inspired by paarfi . I used this , but got lots of YouTube hits as well while googling, you gotta watch those. Now Endgames was my game, I was the sole master For me each new hero was just one more rube When you came along, I thought "Here's a true chump" But you stabbed me first and then called me ...

Re: [1512] Which one

Fred keeps insisting that he can't allow the character that's supposed to be based on himself to have a nice ending with either girl, but most of the time he doesn't end up listening to himself anyway. Ha, yet another parallel between Piro and Arthur Dent, namely the ending of "Mostly Harmless". :l...

Re: [1512] Which one

...huh. Well, I’m disappointed, but I’m sure longtime fans of Piro/Kimiko are screaming in joy, so that’s a positive. Maybe the majority had it right all along. Buh? I had thought the opposite position -- Piro loves Miho, and Kimiko supports this (what you called "paarfi's camp" in the 1511 thread ...

Re: [1512] Which one

“This Piro," comes the cry from the furthest reaches of the Interwebs, and has even now been found inscribed on a mysterious "cool thing" thought to originate from a faraway island nation across a cultural abyss too hideous to contemplate, "what is he, man or mouse? Is he interested in nothing more...

Re: [1512] Which one

Piro here appears to be saying to himself he doesn't need to justify the imaginary past in favor of the actual present. Nicely put. This time, the rescue is over, they've been joking (well okay she has) [...] 1511, panel 4, he is playing the Straight Man here, the tsukkomi to her boke. He's not fli...

Re: [1512] Which one

Either Seraphim is being singularly (deliberately?) unhelpful here or I am really missing something. "Which one were you snogging?" Piro already answered that with his "Who?" in panel 1 of 1511. ("Miho? Uh, sorry, doesn't ring a bell...") Hmm... to the extent Seraphim is "just" a representation of h...

Re: [1511] "cold water and hot lava"

Holy Zarquon. If Kimiko is "dumping Piro to get him back together with Miho" she sure is going about it in a seriously freaky deaky way. Not sure how much more blatant she could be than panel one. "See anything you like, squire? ;)" She just said last strip that it's time to "stop being her" (to wha...

I have to disagree. Piro [...] he still loves Miho [...] May I ask what that belief is based on? Gut feeling, or hints Fred has dropped, or something from specific strips? If the first two, that's none of my business of course. But if the third, I would really appreciate being shown what I've misse...

Yowza. Huh, I had been referring from time to time in previous threads to Kimiko wearing "two" articles of clothing; had not taken into account the possibility of the strapless. But we are pretty much back down to two at this point so no worries. 8-) EDIT: (Duh, stupid me, it is visible right there ...

Yeah, good thing "is in love with Miho" and "TOTALLY DOESN'T FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL FOR MIHO!!!!ONE!!!" are the only two logical alternatives here.

After Largo presses a button marked "PWN" on a device he's cobbled together, which (at the very least) triggers a blackout over several surrounding blocks? I'd bet that regardless of any physical damage to the outer case, the electronics in said laptop are completely non-recoverable. It's an inconve...

I'm not saying Piro's in love with Miho [...] What he is right now is confused . He's been avoiding this decision - this choice - ever since he found out who Miho was.

Wait, you are trying to put more clothes on Kimiko? Piro, dude, you are doing it wrong. I am still failing to see unambiguous evidence in-comic that Piro is "in love with Miho", so I'm interpreting his jitters here as more or less overthinking things. :lol: Also people keep using "Kimi-zilla" in con...
