Hang on, he's wearing a hat like that, and only the person he's been spying on gives him an odd look? And I want a copy of that catten. The book looks lovely enough, but the catten shall be mine! --Vitenka
I don't think he was actually spying... It isn't until later that he is told about the High Elf going out with one of the /Twilight students and he has no reason (yet) to draw the connection. I did like his response to Nikolai's look though :) Now, what's a catten? --K
Oh, and why is the store person objecting to /PhelanMidsummer's hat? Is it too large and keeps knocking things over? Is it too bright a neon colour to look at directly with sunglasses? Does it have "Heero/Duo 4evar!" emblazened across the back in gold sequins? We shall never know. --K
Well, not actively spying, no. The PimpHat? is probably just distracting all the other customers. And a catten is a semi-grown-up-kitten. --Vitenka (Pixel is too small and fluffy to be a full cat)
PeterTaylor thinks it's the UL? rather than a store, and wonders whether the objection is simply to wearing a hat indoors, which is surely at the least bad manners.
Revising together... sort of
Anyone recognise that computer game? Looks Japanese (why am I not surprised...) - CorkScrew
Sounds like XenoGears or similar. From the tiny screenshot (or, at least, the font) though, it looks like a SquareSoft? game. --Vitenka
its final fantasy 8 - i can just make out squall macloud
Yep, but I couldn't make out the scene? :) Any guesses how far through they are? --K
Pieces of the puzzle
Well, /Rin seems to be at least as good as any of us are at figuring out the plot. Probably slightly better, actually, since she hasn't seen as much as we have. That's probably why she has a fan club and we don't. Nice to see /Rin has the correct opinion of /Niea, anyway.... Further than that, hmmm. The /MysteriousEvilDude needs the aetheric level to reach a specified threshold before he can cast a spell, does he? Is he actively trying to repeat the /GreatImmolation?, and if so, why?....hang on. I have an idea. Connected to his past and stuff. I'm not going to say it on the off chance I'm right. And the /StudentCommittee? is trying to stop him? They're not on the same side? Cool --StuartFraser, applauding SunKitten....
Oh go on, tell :) - SunKitten (I won't say anything whether or not it's right...)
CorkScrew strongly suspects that the fire that was supposed to have "killed" the /MysteriousEvilDude centuries ago had a cause involving high aether levels, a phoenix familiar used as a channel, and a spell to halt ageing. Given this, I'd guess that the next big spell is either to resurrect said phoenix or to strengthen the immortality thing. Either way, the guy is probably gonna try to kidnap /Daedalus.
funnliy enough i was thinking that as i read the strip as well - the question now is, how can our intrepid band of heros stop him....
Is anyone else ever reminded of the line from the Hitch-Hiker radio series "As this is an exceedingly irritating point for the narrative to change direction, this is precisely what it will now do..." ? --SF, not really annoyed, more amused..
note to self - must pester someone to teach me how to play go - it looks....interesting...macloud
I like the ship watercolour. I do remember our visit to Great-Uncle Arthur. He was also very nice to me- he showed me the family tree records he has (we are related to Juggins) and I remember how he patiently explained everything. One of his daughters was there too (Mum's age) but I can't remember which one. It was quite a small apartment, so its amazing they kept 4 restless kids happily occupied! --Julia?
I can't decide whether the last response from /Yozhik is a nice save, or a large bit of hole-digging. On the one hand, it's nice compliment to /Megaera, but on the other it's an admission that he thinks /Rin is as pretty as she is. Very nice scena though! Me approvals mucherly, particularly as the confusion regarding the Snow Ball seems to be about to be cleared up for Meg. --CH
