INO right? I considered taking a break from reading it for a year, except that there'd only be 30 new comic pages.

    About the discussion titled "Vanna can't work for Charlie" :

    Do we have evidence that order given by a ruler is still valid after that ruler gets croaked? I couldn't find an evidence which makes us think so.


    It was not an order, she required that her casters swear an oath not to work for anyone but Royal sides. It did not state the oath was to her or her side, so it is possible/likely that is was an oath made before her to the Titans themselves. We have also seen enough examples and hints that such promises and oaths given in negotiations and such are binding and enforced by Erf itself, else why would Parson have to still give Charlie his calculations as we have seen repeatedly Parson Gotti is not above cheating anytime he can get away with it.

    Hedley? Umm, no. Hedy. Look it up yourself (oh wait, that's an in group joke on the IWC/LMoO forum, not here. oh well).

    I'm sure there was one more recent, though.

    Or maybe I'm just thinking of Jim Carrey?

    No, it was definitely an actress or model.


    You completely missed a Blazing Saddles gag.

    Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians fail to get a Blazing Saddles reference. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even those who should be up on the latest TV and movie tropes are under considerable emotional stress from such failures.

    I've only seen it twice, and once when I was so little that the only scene I got was when he held himself hostage.

    And I of course didn't understand the joke because I didn't know about Hedy Lamarr at the time. Now I'll certainly get it!

    It was an expected, on the forums, turn of events. Meaning, other forumites than me foresaw that the GMtTA (or just the Thinkas) will keep Parson safe by preventing access to Spacerock. I was happy to assume that Janis will delay Parson, just for a short while, with dr. Morgan's tea.

    As to who exactly predicted that. Well, I forget the exact stance, but Infidel was arguing with someone else on this exact topic, for example.


    Cool, someone remembered:) I hate to plug myself, well maybe not. Sometimes everyone is caught off guard.

    Yea! Nearly everyone was going on about how Parson's run through MK would be uneventful, any deviation would be bad writing was one argument. I argued that there was room for misunderstanding of Maggie's message, and the consensus was that of course there couldn't be confusion since HE wrote the code, how could he misunderstand his own code? I also argued that there were good storytelling reasons to delay Parson, should Rob follow that path. And I really hate the bad writing argument. Creating tension is a standard writing technique, and people forget that the end reader is reading this all at once, not in one page bites once every week or two :P So while a delay might make US groan with agony, a book reader might get all tense in anticipation.
