Re: [1512] Which one

So am I the only one who has a problem with an angel smoke a cigarette? Especially in a hotel room? It's a holy one who smokes ;) /More srsly (but not totally) since it's celestial, probably undetectable by human smoke detectors... /Even more srsly but not totally, it's Piro's imagination smoking.

Re: [1512] Which one

Oh, one nitpick: Piro did know about Pirogoeth’s pregnancy when (s)he killed m0h. “Well, we weren’t exactly talking when I found out.” https://megatokyo.com/strip/1350 I know, and Miho didn't... (We could have saved them! I wouldn't put her through that if I knew...) Didn't change much of the outco...

Re: [1512] Which one

> maybe that is what he’s been the most afraid of. Interesting. I have a vague idea that it might be opposite; that ever since Miho destroyer their prior relationship, Piro’s been afraid to accept any kind of reality beyond what’s right in front of him. “I haven’t understood anything since then.” A...

Re: [1512] Which one

game choices. (Betraying his friend. Murdering the father of her child. Exposing the hack. Abandoning the girl in hospital who cut her hair and made the nurses angry. There seem to be plenty of things to regret alone or in a mix.) Wait did I miss something... You're implying that all Piro told Kimi...

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. It's kind of odd, in a way. Back many years ago Fred declared he was going to stop dragging...

Re: [1512] Which one

Nah, Seraphim has been on him about dropping the fantasy world stuff and dealing with the real world since she first appeared. I think this last panel is Piro saying loving Miho in the online (fantasy) world wasn't any different than (or inferior to) loving a real-world girl like Kimiko. Hmm, i won...

Re: [1512] Which one

There are a good many parallels between Arthur Dent and Piro, really. Most notably the insistence by their creators that they must suffer horribly.

Re: [1512] Which one

On pure appearance, this is not likely to happen next: Panel1: upper bodies of Kimiko and Piro, in the shower, maybe Piro tries to reach for her arm, she has her normal hair again, looks around. Panel 2: she turns around, they reach their heads to kiss but arms apart. Panel 3: they still kiss but he...

Re: [1512] Which one

I'm with @darrin on this one,

Seraphim just expands on what the choices really are, till it is obvious what the choice is supposed to be. She wants him to get more autonomous on this too. He just is the kind of guy who ... Errrrr...

Sleeps with his conscience...

But, look at his back, yo. That must be sore ... Wonder why there's no blood stains drawn on his t-shirt (unless it was not a white one). Showering that will require some gentle assistance... Just what the very girl wants.

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

What exactly Miho was thinking in 1121/1122, or if those plans changed or not, is a mystery. Since she didn't, the question of if Miho would have stayed at the ASF forever will have to remain unanswered. Likewise, we don't know yet if a Miho story can only end with her or others dying, since nobody...

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

Miho was playing with Piro and Largo, expecting them to lose. Then Largo started "winning" and Miho changed her mind and decided she wanted Piro to win too. This is when she makes the comment "he's not going to lose, but he's not going to win either" and she decides to take action so that Piro can ...

[Fanfic] Saved - A Megatokyo Story - Chapter 6 - Blind Summit

Cathal sat in a chair in his room, looking out of the window, recollecting scenes from the day gone by. It actually did not take long, from the estate house, just a couple of hours by horse, to reach the top of the mountain. There was a terrific vista opening to anyone who climbed: ocean as far as t...

Re: The Visual Novel

Fred mentioned financial concerns from what I saw on the rants, a total of one time. You are trying to give it more meaning than it deserves - he was sick, then he got better, and then he wanted to make up for the lost value by embarking on something new - that is what I see as an outsider. Wanted t...

Me neither (the team were telling what was up with the VN project ever since, so it's not just Fred's word) that's why the second part of the timeline is also important.

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

I don't really think Piro is ready to accept going back to Miho yet. He's barely nursed his emotional state back to being sort-of normal (from not being able to even talk to school girls at the start of the comic, to surviving the Miho-death scene now, with some apparent composure) (or more importan...
