I KNEW IT - I KNEW IT - I KNEW IT - I KNEW IT !!!!!
It’s just like in Transformers — where the Dinobots prefer their ‘folded up’ dinosaur form over their ‘unfolded’ robot form…

You know... part of me wants to correct your misreading of what I wrote and the other part of does not want to be a killjoy.

Sooooo... you have fun envisioning me as a Teddy-WereCarebear, Beta...
Why do I feel a little dirty saying that?
Dude, you're arguing with frigging GANDALF there. The point is, unless you have the ability to un-destroy folks on those occasions when your nose and guts are actually wrong, you need to keep your itchy finger _outside_ the trigger guard.Teddy-Werebear wrote: ↑Tue Aug 18, 2020 8:59 pmI trust my nose and my guts, D. They both tell me that Miho and Moeria are far bigger threats.
It's been Teddy's schtick, err firmly held opinion for as long as I've been on the forum. He's the one constant here. Don't ever change, Teddy.

I mean, she does seem to be occasionally prickly. She also comes of as being a bit of a schemer. Evil, though? I just can't see it. In the early part of the comic there was some hi-jinks going on but it didn't look like she was evil (except in Largo's eyes). I am really curious about this because Teddy seems to be so darned insistent on this notion. Does anyone have any information that could justify this belief?
Don't encourage him/her/it
If you understand Miho then you realize that everyone she loves and gets close to will die, usually horribly. She even said that the worst thing she did was allow the people who thought that they could use her to use her.
Oh, I fear the olde evil well enough. But there's considerable danger in a young new power that doesn't understand the harm they can do. Miho is old, and has come close to destroying the city before and had that go very badly. While she might bend it into a pretzel for fun, I doubt she wants to break it. But a nine tail Kitsune? From the legends she could destroy the city without realizing she's going that far, and likely in more than one way.Teddy-Werebear wrote: ↑Tue Aug 18, 2020 8:58 pmYou do not f34r teh olde 3v1l enough... this could lead to your undoing.Roamer wrote: ↑Sat Aug 15, 2020 1:03 amIf Megumi has fully manfested and her future mindset reflects her emotions during the manifestation, I suspect you'll be proven wrong on this one, Teddy. Depending on the source, the power range of a 9T* can be pretty terrifying, and she's got no experience in controlling them. They may need Miho's help to keep Megumi from wrecking MT in this mental state. I very much hope not, but I can't recall a single good piece of luck she's had up to now. And everyone has a breaking point.
* I am hereby declaring that '9T' will be the short version of 'nine-tail' in the forums hereafter. Because shortcut.
Some of the legends say a that when a kitsune grows a ninth tail, their hair changes color to silver, white or gold. Would be an interesting look for her.
Teddy is our north star, always unchanging. Even Fred acknowledges this.
Largo has identified her as a species of Undead so, naturally, she must be Evil because that's how the games he likes all work. For Piro she is a Schoolgirl so automatically a potential romantic heroine and therefore Good - or at least saveable (one reason I believe Largo distrusts Piro's games is because of that automatic alignment of Schoolgirl and Romantic Target). Teddy is firmly in the shoot-em-up camp and agrees with Largo. He may continue to hold this belief even if Largo changes his mind, but may change his mind if Miho is released from her story cycle, although that could mean her destruction.Eraden wrote: ↑Thu Aug 20, 2020 4:32 pmOkayyyy, I have to ask the following question: why does Teddy think that Miho is the fount of all evil?

I submit that the north star is useful because it actually, you know, shows which direction is north.
The north star was useful because it was a fixed reference point for navigation. It pointing north is convenient, but for navigation it could have pointed South-Southeast and it would have been just as useful.
The important point is that it gave information about the external world, as opposed to "Whatever direction I am facing must be north, because my nose and my gut never steer me wrong."
Lots of people would be "right" to call Miho a "potential danger". I would never argue against calling her a potential danger. Miho being a "potential danger" is not a specific prediction of TWB's model, but rather that is she is intrinsically and irredeemably evil, that all of the events of "danger and destruction" around her are deliberate and of malicious intent.And in the past, Teddy was right in that Miho was at that time the clear and present danger. Given that she just destroyed most of a wing of a hospital,
[...] she is still a potential danger
Look at the base of her spine. She clearly has 9 tails. There can be no doubt. She has just been escalated to the top tier in the Megatokyo universe.Initial B wrote: ↑Fri Aug 28, 2020 3:08 pmPoor Megumi, I feel bad about her luck with love, but I don't know if that angst means she is going to destructive bender. I do get the feel we're going to see a lot of plot advancement chapter.
I have some doubts whether Megumi is 9 tails. That little bit of visible tail that pokes out from the tail 3rd from the bottom could be part of the same tail if it just curved in an 'S' shape. Still, probably a lot of power even if it's only 8 tails. Can't help but wonder if this thirteenth chapter is going to be the last.
Yes, actually Fact is... some of the original stuff that was Megumi's night out was SUPPOSED to be the Omake for this chapter. Then it became what it is and got included in the chapter. I'm going to do one more TTDP then get cracking on the next chapter.
