Re: [1515] Reset?

In this setting, I don't think we're ever going to 'lose' the Miho type of a story... even if only to become an example of how not to live your life. That's the point, actually. The Story is still there. Does it need an Analogue? If it can't have Miho, who will it take? I really hope Kimiko doesn't...

Re: [1515] Reset?

Without Miho to anchor it, what is her story going to do? Will it need to find a new Analogue?

Re: [1515] Reset?

This Tohya person really wants to live, but not live, she is really freaked out she didn't die, but can't get anyone to kill her or let anyone kill her; On the premise, I think, that so far she could not evade her death one way or another, for too long...

[Fanfic] Saved - A Megatokyo Story - Chapter 9 - The Death Wish

I do not know how long did I sleep. In my dreams, I ventured to distant lands, bearing all sorts of adventures, living the roles of a thousand characters. I opened my eyes, and saw the ceiling beams, the sun was shining through the hole in the wall, covered with linen. I tried to sit up, but then I ...

Re: [1515] Reset?

"eyes closed with raised eyebrows" His expression seems sort-of apologetic to me too, the inside ends of his eyebrows are raised ... like 'sorry, I had to, I've been blackmailed into this'... Would the Ninjagrrl have succeeded killing Miho if Yaku and Junpei did not show up? Miho seems to be faster...

[1516 development - confrontations of an angry daughter

Welcome to a thread that will (eventually) become a WIP thread for comic 1516! Fred started development sketching here . Fred seems to have been uplifted by how the previous comic came out, and decided to go full-on into drawing / developing this one. Fred returned to Twitch on 10 and 11th of March,...

Re: [1514] "Hard to Explain"

Heh, Fred doesn't dub himself 'master of a long-shot sniper Chechov rifle' for nothing ;)

he did not actually say it that way, but the way he described it on the twitch chat was with certain pride and smugness :)

This actually gives more insight into what she says she is (a little bit of data remanence, an abandoned path)... that was pretty obscure to me before. TIL.

Ninjas and open-frame CRT TVs

It actually was bothering me since I saw it first... In the scene where Junpei caries Miho to his room. Or on the following panels. It's in every ninja room they are passing. It is also in Junpei's room. A TV. A CRT TV. WITH NO CASE. An open frame, chassis only, TV or maybe a VGA monitor #remember20...

Re: [1515 WIP] I'll most likely kill you

I have the funniest feeling that Ninja Grrl is at least moderately concerned about making a mess in Junpei's room that would have to be cleaned up before he returns. [...] Luckily, Miho seems to still have some power left. Could still go either way tho. They'd need Yuki and Meimi to help them clean...

Re: [1515 WIP] I'll most likely kill you

Funnier still if Miho, having absorbed/exchanged something with Kimiko, starts experiencing 't3h awkw4rd' from PxM interaction... In front of two ninjas and a fox girl....but we're slightly early for that even here, I think.
Or if the KxM link suddenly started manifesting itself the other way round.

Doctor, if you are reading this letter, I am probably dead. Yes I tried everything.

Um...why is this thread here? The comic’s not going to be up for awhile. Because when the comic is in progress, traffic here inevitably dies...

There seems to be a pretty straightforward connection between Kimiko and Piro’s romantic interactions and Miho’s...goosing?
