Re: [1512] Which one

As far as the transcripts, I don't know if the person transcribing the comic thought it was m0h the same as the chat handle and so just wrote it down that way in the transcript, or if they were told it was that, or what. The anecdote I recall (presumably from old forum discussion but I don't rememb...

Re: [1512] Which one

( Maybe emphasize a bit harder that cross-posting from n+1/twitch back to n thread is not appreciated by most people ? ) Sorry for the double post, and sorry for harping on this (mostly dying I guess) issue. I have to ask though, why does "most people" have to be the threshold here? What possible p...

Re: [1512] Which one

Such as m0h is Miho's chat handle, but the character in Endgames isn't really named by name ever. Last panel of 1210 , Pirogoeth says "M0h?" (It's hard to tell from the all-caps font in the comic itself, but the transcript confirms it's spelled with a zero.) Also the transcripts for the strips in w...

Re: [1512] Which one

i'd say it deprives the forum of at least the possibility to mention the mood of the next comic... If no one is allowed to mention even what they perceive as the mood of the next comic, because they have seen it, then the forum discussion with the likes of me really dies out. I want to see Fred's c...

Re: [1513] - "Play"

Looks like my belief Fred wouldn't take us into the shower was wrong. Can't say I'm unhappy about that though. :D

@Fred really nice ones of Kimiko here. Bit sexy but a bit innocent, nicely done. <thumbs up emoji>

Re: [Your Input Wanted] Thread Timing/Organization

My vote would be basically an extension of how I voted when the question was just about Patreon: go ahead and start the 15xx as early as desired, to accommodate twitch/patreon/whoever users. The agreement then being that no discussion of 15xx should go in the 15x(x-1) thread (until 15xx actually sho...

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...

...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?

“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?

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.

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...

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?
