Re: [1563] That performance

On the flip side, there are things that Largo can do that she can't. They'll still need each other for something. We just won't know what that something is.... …..yet. Tanking damage meant for Erika comes to mind immediately. Also keeping her stable as her power appears to affect her deeply - in ot...

Largo had better expand on that statement, or Erika's going to uncork '73e pow3r' on his skull...

Welcome back Fred. Hope you're doing better, and the family is well.

Re: [1562] The only thing I'm ever able to do

Whoa hold your horses peoples... you assume that what Moeko says is true, right? Miho was the Bad Magical Girl? That is right out of 'she said/she said' (edit sorry been looking for a word for a long time) fallacy... You assume that, just because she's the miserable one that spent most her life in ...

Re: [1562] The only thing I'm ever able to do

I am a bit confused. In 'Girl Phase', Magical Moe-bo used a magic croquet mallet to punish evil most severely. The real Moeko has a magic wand and wants to save the "evil" Bad Magical Girl FEZ from Ireland by giving her life. Does that mean the Bad Magical Girl isn't *really* evil, just misundersto...

Hoping I'm wrong, but those sounded like last words. Although maybe it would be a relief for her, to finally be free of this prison.

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

She had just shared her favorite story from Erika's show, one pretty revealing about some aspects of Miho's character. Somehow I am getting vibes that that passage (and the girl-rescued-by-pirates-who-then-died-after-they-were-killed story) is something we might get even more clues from... Almost c...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

It might also help to explain her willingness to waltz onto a known killing field and get blown to bits by a dozen Killballs. That reminds me. We know that she wasn't planning to be discovered by Yuki after that (and Yuki was looking for her why...?) hence she was very visibly surprised by that. I ...

Moeko clearly has fangs... in every shot. Clearly having a nervous breakdown, also. Has it been a slow rolling nervous breakdown for years? A decade or more? Some things you cannot fix. Some things you cannot replace. Some things you cannot throw out. Some things you cannot escape. Congrats, Teddy,...

Re: [1561] Little girl stuff

I have always greatly admired CS Lewis's defense of fairy tales and children's literature. I think, had he lived long enough to know of them, he'd have felt the same about magical girls. You don't have to give up little girl stuff when you become a big girl, Moeko. Never stop dreaming. Especially w...

Re: [1558] Getting through

She seems to be strongly exaggerating. For example, she says hayasaka almost "killed" her best friend. In truth she apparently just broke her nose. And then she says, "it did happen, right? I don't know, I was stuck in coma". Apparently, she is relying on third party information, maybe what fans po...

Re: [1558] Getting through

No, this isn't just happening in Erika's head. This isn't mind control nor is it possession. Largo is completely blind to what is happening and it's not an SEP because Largo thinks everything is his problem. OK, if it's not in Erika's head, but Moeko is still in a coma, how is she moving & talking?...

This is all in Erika's head... Moeko has possessed her and is gaining full control while mocking Erika. This Moeko is going to start driving her body around like a supercharged bumper car! Totally in her head with full VR sensorium, using Erika's own senses. Nope, no mocking. Fred's subverted this ...

Re: [1557] I wish I could hear you talk

Well so far the only people that we have seen to be able to interact with Moeko are Miho, who provided energy and life to her, and Erika who gave life to her character as portrayed in Girl Phase. In both cases where Moeko directly interacted there was a great deal of surprise. Miho was of course co...

Teddy, you have a nasty, suspicious mind, and I'm leaning strongly in your direction (THAT'S a first.) ... And I really, really hope Teddy's wrong about Moeko.
