Hmm, we needed to see Cary again, didn’t we? Also: Les may be the first person in this comic to ever swear by Christ.
Damn, Cary, you have zero confidence in people who are not you, don’t you? Even Waffle House took three days to reopen its doors after Katrina; have some patience.
Unfortunately, patience is a virtue and Cary has none. Or is trying very, very hard to get rid of the ones she has.
And even more important: Make sure you’ve got an actual grasp of what’s going down before barging in.
Notice a trend in Cary’s relationship with her gang.
She treats them like shit, but if they force something, she always listens, even if she never changes her mind.
Cary is always fully open, uncomfortably rudely honestly open, about her thoughts and feelings about anything, whenever she can get away with it.
Cary is a crazy but comfortable “Leader”.
The gang never knows what she’s gonna do next, but the gang always knows how she feels and how she’ll react, and they know that she is safe as long as they hold to her standards.
And the award for highest density of swear words in a sentence (in this comic) goes to: Cary!
Points have been deducted due to a lack of originality.
So… Christianity still existts in this universe? Wouldn’t three “ends of the world” count as Apocalypse… s?
Not really, this is like Sideshow Bob yelling “By Poseidon’s BEARD!” Actual magic popping up and the world blowing up three or four times had a funky effect on religion. Not to say there isn’t, there’s a whole LOT of it. But it tends to take different forms. The old ones are still remembered, though.
Sarin: SAFE (no clothes, no magic, no equipment, but victorious and enemy free)
Mori: SAFE (still stuck Ur-Limbo writing the story in a way that works, but victorious)
Kili: SAFE (toddlerized but enemy free)
Goro: TRAPPED (enemy free, but dying fast in a time bubble)
Goro will either be saved by the crossbow-fired crystal shard, or something all-together different.
How much magic is available inside of a time bubble?
Is this when… Max stabs Cary?
You mean the next sentence being along the lines of “I’m the mole!”?
I would be more concerned about who informed the demons that her plan to hire the doctors
That would be the one who was recently a giant blue werewolf.
How would she have known? Cary isn’t exactly writing her plans all over the walls.
I’m not sure the Demons did know about Cary’s intentions; I doubt they needed too. The doctors are powerful, well-educated magic users who are determined to bring order to chaos, joy to sorrow, and above all fix the worlds problems. They are the demons natural worst enemy.
That’s why I sometimes regret that English has such limited amount of swears. See, if this comic were in Polish, you’d have variety of swears to choose from. For example, Cary’s line in panel 3 would be in Polish “Co się do chuja pana kurwa dzieje w moim pierdolonym mieście?!”
I could have varied it but I thought it’d be funnier if she said a long string of the same word. But now I know more Polish swears, thanks!
Just remember pronunciation and meaning:
Kurwa (pron. coorva) – whore, bitch, sometimes used like “fuck” is used in English.
Chuj (pron. Hooy) – dick, as in penis.
Pierdolić/jebać (pron. respectively: Pyerdolitz/Yebatz) – to fuck.
Dupa (pron. doopah) – ass
Following up on EcchiKitty’s point: if you’re interested in English swearsmithing, Chris Kluwe’s political remarks include some choice examples.
English has a fair number of swears, just that ‘fuck’ is kind of on a level of it’s own.
Isn’t “fuck” only word which can be used as ANY lexical category? Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun, …
