The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 5—Page 64

255 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 5—Page 64

And the Circle of Banter is now complete.

I’m going to be in Toronto this weekend, May 26-29th, for Yaoi North! Yaoi North is an official part of Anime North and takes place at the Holiday Inn Toronto Airport East at 600 Dixon Road.

It is “the annual LGBTQ-centric programming track that runs as part of Anime North. Programming features a variety of informative panels and events including fandom-specific discussions, queer lifestyle, and yaoi/yuri fandom topics, as well as evening/overnight viewings and a multitude of contests. Popular panels from previous years include World History of Homosexuality, Gay Sex 101 (18+), Crossplay 101, Fandom Ate My Soul, Psychology of Yaoi, Yuri in the West, and Yuri 101.”

I will be there the whole weekend, and I’ll be giving at least two panels on Saturday about LGBT webcomics. I’ll also be selling and signing books in the “Industry Area” of the Dealer’s Room in the Toronto Congress Centre, table #IA-11.  Here is a map of where the Industry Area is. And here is a somewhat generic-looking map showing where you can find my table in the Industry Area.

Yaoi North is taking place this weekend, May 26-28, but there’s still time to get a pass. And, since Anime North is a “not-for-profit” fan event, the prices are quite reasonable! If you think you might want to go and get a chance to see me, please check it out! 🙂

So! Tsunami gave Fluke some love on the last page. Fluke now gives Tsunami some love back on this page (in a very Fluke way.) It’s amazing how saving the world can bring folks together.

But enough with the post-fight hugs and kisses! Now it’s finally time to join Commander and Kyle on the hunt for The Annihilator!

How’s that going to go?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

  • He almost cussed! What a bad boy 😉

      I know, where has this guy been for the ENTIRE REST OF THE COMIC? <3

  • jreed3842

    Maaan… Do I have to start shipping them now?
    Too many ships to handle!!

    Nah, but seriously. They are awfully cute on this page. 😛

    • Curt Clark

      Tsu and Fluke are straight (to the best of my knowledge), but I can still consider them a BroTP. ^_^

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Hee hee…I love them all.

  • davefragments

    Why is Spooky so silent during all of this?

    • stickfigurefairytales

      He’s concentrating on his healing spells. Also he wasn’t exactly aware to hear Tsunami’s speech, so he can’t weigh in on that.

      • Ulysses Paxton

        Could be that after all he’s been through that while he can do the work of healing he doesn’t have any extra energy to banter as he would if he was rested up.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Also a good possibility.

        • Yes, it’s a lot of healing at same time. Takes concentration an energy.

          (Back in the warehouse, when he checked Kyle for spells and injuries, he didn’t say much while doing that either)

          • Saxon_Brenton

            That’s a good point. Evidence points to Spooky being professional, and getting it right the first time.

      • davefragments

        I hadn’t thought of that

    • Curt Clark

      I’m almost positive there’s a deep, DEEP well of sass and banter just waiitng for the right moment to pop up.

      Hopefully before he and Kyle make out again. (<3 !!!!)

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I would DEFINITELY want somebody with healing powers on my team.

    • Curt Clark

      Designing a superhero team is a lot like designing an RPG party.

      You don’t NEED a healer to be successful, but it definitely does not hurt.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    i love this team
    that’s all i really have to say about this page dkfjgd
    it’s great, kyle has a good family

  • Nofsky8

    🙂

  • Tsu-Tsu and his embarrased ‘Oh Gosh, he heard me’ face in panel 2 is so adorable.

    Fluke banter is such a good cure for a lot.

    • Curt Clark

      Right up there wtih Spooky banter. ^_^

      • No wonder they get along well.

  • Stop hiding this side, Tsu.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Hmmmm……well dang it!I was going to say something about this…….but when I saw the last panel ……Kyle and Commander walking away……ummm……his buns cause severe memory loss! 😀

  • Pietro7

    Not sure if it means anything, but Spooky’s magic seems more yellow than green now, and before it was plainly green-dominant. Does this represent a significant change in him, or unfinished color work, or what?

    • Curt Clark

      Spooky’s magic turned several different colors in the battle and rescue attempt. I just assumed his healing spells were all this color.

  • Nirgal

    I don’t know if it’s funnier imagining Gordon saying “shut up” with the voice of a sassy black woman, or with the voice of Regina George in Mean Girls.

    • Jet Allen

      Like, for Regina – are we talking grouchy “Shut up,” or the disbelieving “Shut up. Shut UP!” that came with learning Cady moved there from Africa?

      I’m kind of partial to the “He doesn’t know the wooooords~!”/”SHUUUUUUT UUUUUUUP!”-type from Rocko’s Modern Life, though.

  • davefragments

    I wonder if Amanda wants to talk to Kyle separate from the group so that she can look into his mind and figure out all the new and strange things going on in there?

    • Curt Clark

      I automatically assumed they were going on a Duncan hunt. She’s telepathic and he can read heat signatures, right?

      I’d suggest Spooky go with them, but you know. Heal duty.

      • davefragments

        Kyle has baggage (big time baggage) with Duncan. This is going to be an interesting sequence.

        • Klaus

          And it was less than 24 hours ago.

    • bandanajack

      i immediately thought amanda and kyle had peeled off to do some serious talking about reorganization matters, and perhaps even that spooky kiss.

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      I wouldn’t mind “going there” 😉

  • Look at Mitch being all happy. ^_^

    • Jeldenil

      I was about to say something about the slightly crazed happy eyes XD

      • Jet Allen

        He looks like he just ingested a metric fuckton of LSD or something. “Flying isn’t the only way I get high. HEHEHEHEHEHEHEH… shiiiiit, man.”

        • Klaus

          Eyes of an eagle, ears of an owl and high as a kite.

  • Curt Clark

    PLEASE tell us there’s more planned after this arc’s over <3 I want these guys to be aroudn FOREVER.

    • Alex has confirmed that we’ll get at least one more arc once this is done.

      I look forward to find out who’ll be the main focus character in that one. My first guess is Mitch, second is Spooky (or possibly Kyle again). One of these three, as they’re the gay or bisexual male characters.

      • Doki votes for Mitch, but wouldn’t say no to Spooky.

        • Klaus

          I would not say no to Kyle.

      • Klaus

        No doubt you are right. On the other hand, Tsunami has this traumatic episode in his past.

        • I know, but this site is called Yaoi911. There should probably be a love-interest or at least a good guy-guy smooch for the main character in the main story.

          Kiiinda doubt Tsu-Tsu would agree on that one 😉

  • timemonkey

    Are we going to have a round of Duncan realising how much he was played, that could be fun.

  • bronakopdin

    xDD
    I really like the good mood but at the same time it’s making me feel on adge as it kinda suggests there is some erious bad stuff to come… maybe… x’D
    So let’s see how Duncan is doing…

  • Juliette Leroux

    Aww, lookit them, being like a family again, cracking up jokes nd generally bringing good feelings to each other. That’s a really nice page… Still impressed by the incredible quality of their costumes here: the white parts are still so white are being burned! That fabric and the shadowloins are going to be so popular if they are commercialised.

  • Sunseahl Silverfall

    I feel kinda awkward…. Flyboy’s bug-eyes in this page kinda freak me out.

    • camelotcrusade

      LOL, I thought the same thing but I wasn’t gonna say. Sometimes you get that one shot where you wish you hid from the camera, right?

      • Sunseahl Silverfall

        Totally.

    • Look at it like this. Mitch is happy but stunned about Tsu and the banter happening before his eyes. That can leave you a little wide-eyed.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Further: This might be one of the few times (maybe even the first time) that he’s been allowed to see this sort of thing happen. Going by the first interlude story where Tsunami gives him the lecture about the dangers of porn, he usually gets treated as the very junior team member who has to be treated carefully.

        Now everyone (including Tsunami) is giddy with relief at having survived, is acting casual and letting their feelings show – including some smack talk to conceal any embarrassment about those feelings. And for once Flyboy is being being allowed to be in on it.

  • Sunseahl Silverfall

    lol.. you just want something to grab onto when you play with him, dontcha? 😛

  • Ethan

    How is my Anni???

    • Klaus

      With all the fire that has been thrown about the general area, my guess is medium. I think he was not close enough to be well done.

  • TwilightDreamer

    Haha, love these boys 🙂 and aaawww…love Tsunamis face in the fourth panel 🙂

  • Zephyr10101

    I just need em to kiss

    • strangeangel24601

      But I’m pretty sure that Kyle and Amanda aren’t attracted to each other.

      • Klaus

        A caste, friendly kiss, then.

      • Jet Allen

        They can share a passive-aggressive kiss as the ex and the current S.O., and then trash-talk each others’ kissing skills to their friends later.

        That made more sense in my head.

      • Zephyr10101

        I’m not even talking about them

    • Will Parkinson

      Which ‘them’?

      • Zephyr10101

        My two husbands tsunami and fluke

  • Lyleen

    love it!

  • Will Parkinson

    Ooh, a Fluke and Tsunami kiss? I’m there!

    • T Dibbler

      Me too. I wasn’t before, but I am after this page.

    • bandanajack

      that kind of icks me out given tsunami’s role as a mentor protector. i think a big brother younger brother hug would seem more appropriate.

  • Jet Allen

    Mitch is kinda lookin’ reeeeeeal creepy right there.

    Also, end result of the Anni hunt:

    “Welp. He’s dead.”

    “Yep. Grab a burger?”

    “Let’s do it.”

  • Jet Allen

    Why’s that? Easier access for Spooky later?

  • Karol Chmielewski

    Annie keeped his and of the barging with devil daddy so his probably immortal and forever young but powerless do to that machine blowing up in his face.

    • John

      I don’t think anni NEEDS superpowers now; they were just handy. He’d lex luthor it up with science and henchman and money if he didn’t have superman powers

      • EyeDontNo

        But then we’d miss out on the battles like the one in the Hong Kong flower market.

        • John

          I’m sure if he’d NEVER had powers we’d still have had that better, just probably with an anti-tech device or similar.

          But I was referring to future battles with him if he no longer has powers.

          • EyeDontNo

            And with the many enemies he’s made on both sides of the law, I’m sure he’ll still be ‘randomly’ attacked powers or not.

  • bandanajack

    @alexwoolfson:disqus as a favor, keep your antenna up for any YUZUVIER fandom. this one is kind of unusual since it concerns two actual human athletes, figure skaters yuzuru hanyu and javier fernandez, a friendship so intimate it crushes all boundaries and has tongues wagging and imaginations, including mine, on high alert.

    it only becomes more complicated because their shared coach is brian orser, former champion and himself gay, and their good friend and gay icon figure skater and now commentator johnny weir has nicknamed them papi and pooh. (yuzuru always has a stuffed pooh bear on hand when he competes, adding fuel to the fire, javier recently acquired a stuffed tigger, oy vey)

    as for their bona fides, one or the other of them has one gold in the past 4 world championships, so they are no lightweights. yes, i who never ships, am totally smitten by the intimacy these boys share.

    • Mary Klemzak

      This is something I need in my life. Thank you.

    • Kate G

      Huh? Who? What? What is this about figure skating? Someone fill me in?

  • Toli Bera

    and Kyle and The Commander sneak off to neck in the woods.

  • Emma B.

    I’m awaiting quite an interesting conversation in the next page!

  • Jason Moon

    Ooh, cuddlies!

  • David Welbourn

    It’s so nice to see that at least one superhero group has a healer on its team. Every D&D party of adventurers knows the value in bringing a cleric along, but somehow most superheroes haven’t learned that wisdom yet.

    • Klaus

      Or maybe they are just hard to come by. Spooky was courted by two of the adult teams. Could be that his healing powers were what they were after.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Spooky has several advantages that super teams would find useful. Powerful magic user, with healing abilities. Also, one of only two sane magic users, and the only heroic one, so he’ll have knowledge that can be tapped when they have to deal with one of the insane magic users. And if you want to get really crass, he’s popular because of his cartoon show, so he’d been useful for publicity.

    • Shadizar Silvermask

      Most super-hero settings has the power of healing be almost completely non-existent. Finding someone who can heal is a quest in a super-hero comic usually. Heck in all my decades of gaming I’m having trouble remembering ANYONE who actually had a character that had healing powers. The closest would be if someone said they ran in a cosmic level campaign and had someone like Silver Surfer on the team (one of the few Marvel Heroes who has healing powers in his vast package of powers) and healing is way down on the list of powers that people recognize him as having.

  • Larkle

    New rule: Everyone tease Tsunami it’s fun.

  • Klaus

    It seems that Gordon, unlike Amanda, does not find Spooky’s healing erotic. I wonder how Mitch will react.

  • Jeff Baker

    Hmmmm…things are going too easy….shouldn’t Galactus or Starbreaker or somebody pop up right about now? 🙂

    • davefragments

      The Abominable Doctor Phibes might Rise from the Grave

      {wink, wink}

  • Dekira

    Omg the LOOK of MITCH’s face on the last panel. I know it’s just his goggles but omg he looks so NERDY and CUTE AF. Omg

  • Dennis Grace

    Mitch’s face? Only thing I see is Kyle’s ass.

    • Jac

      That suit is so flattering I can’t imagine Kyle *hasn’t* checked himself out in a mirror at least twice.

      • Jet Allen

        Probably quoting Buffalo Bill, at that.

        “Would you fuck me? I’d fuck me. I’d fuck me so hard.”

        …Or maybe he checks himself out in the mirror and says, “It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again.” Who knows.

        • Nofsky8

          Where is the second quote from? I’m so confused,

          • davefragments

            Buffalo Bill is the serial killer in “Silence of the Lambs” who causes Clarice Starling to consult with Hannibal Lecter.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            Thank you for the explanation …….I’m from Nebraska……my mind went directly to another “well known” Buffalo Bill……and trying to picture him saying that…..no……not going there!

          • davefragments

            If you are thinking of Buffalo Bill Cody then I would say that we can pair him up with those Ghost Riders in the Sky …

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            That would be the one !

          • Nofsky8

            Ohh, thanks!

        • davefragments

          now that made my eyes pop

        • Jac

          oh my!

  • Jac

    Everyone is just so cute <3

  • Snorlaxation

    I’m gonna go back and read it anyway, but what happened to the Platinum Priestess?

    • davefragments

      The last we see of the Platinum Princess’ slightly smoking body is on Chapter 4 page 50 (you can get to it from the “ARCHIVES” link above.

      That’s the page where she calls them all “children” and threatens them. She opens the portal to escape and Kyle blasts her through it.

      Let me explain “slightly smoking” because on occasion someone is referred to as “smoking” meaning sexy and acting like it. In the Platinum Priestess’ case on Ch4Pa50, take “smoking” to mean singed and smoldering or slightly on fire, possibly burning at the edges. With Kyle there’s always two meanings to “smoking hot mama.”
      {wink, wink}

    For your camping entertainment: hellsnake fanfic

    Shane And The Hellsnakes – 27th Bite
    (A Young Protectors occult sitcom fanfic. Inspired by the stories of AMW comics.)

    Final story arc: (rest of urls at end)
    22nd //disq.us/p/1i1o3nj || 23rd //disq.us/p/1i8pi3l || 24th //disq.us/p/1ifcthp
    25th //disq.us/p/1imod46 || 26th //disq.us/p/1itxr7z ||

    PAGE 1 – Meanwhile… Shane
    (1.1) Establishing panorama shot of city street, shown in perspective. In the foreground is the St Erewhon ambulance still parked at the corner of the block, where it is hemmed in by various abandoned cars, with a hastily established triage centre set up beside it in a sort-of defensive position. The building where the shamblers originated can be seen around the corner and half a block away, in the distance in the background of the panel. The medical officers have a few people that they’re treating for various injuries.
    Pointy fingered narrative caption: It’s fifteen minutes later. Abandoned cars have hemmed in the St Erewhon ambulance. Unable to drive anywhere, Shane and his fellow medical officers have made the best by pulling back out of sight of the building where the shamblers started from and have set up a triage centre.
    Pete the coffee cart guy: “Most of the shamblers seem to milling around the entrance of the building.”
    Kat: “So, they’ve set up their own defensive perimeter too? Huh.”
    (1.2) Medium shot of the makeshift triage base. Pete is keeping an eye out while also taking occasion pictures to send out on social media. The medics are treating people, including one man in a business suit who suffered a heart attack and who is laid out with an oxygen mask. Bits and pieces of gear can be seen lying about and being used, including a bullhorn loudspeaker.
    Joel: “I wonder what they’re up to.”
    Shane (to Pete): “You don’t have to stay here you know.”
    Pete: “Yeah, I guess. But, you know, I’d rather stick with the people who’ve got a track record with punching Nazis.”
    Shane: “You mean punching zombies.”
    Pete: “That too.”
    (1.3) Medium shot. Pete’s eyes widen as he sees Louie approaching.
    Pete: “Uhh.. But now we’ve got a snake bearing down on us.”
    Joel: “What? A zombie snake?”
    Shane (glancing at Louie): “No, calm down. That snake is with me.”
    (1.4) Wide shot of triage centre. Silent panel. Everyone watches in bemusement as Shane kneels down and extends an arm towards Louie, who crawls up his forearm.

    PAGE 2 – Report
    (2.1) Closeup of Shane, with Louie perched on his shoulder.
    Shane: “Hey there, bodhisattva snake. Anything interesting to report?”
    Louie: “Probably not much that you don’t already know. The police are establishing up a cordon. They’re set up about three blocks that way. Those mind controlled people have been coming out of a few buildings around the city centre, with some moving out to attack and others having around the base of their building.”
    (2.2) Medium shot of makeshift triage centre.
    Kat (fitting a sling on someone with a broken arm): “Actually, we’ve only gotten some of that so far. The reports on the two-way from hospital dispatch have been kind of scant. Still a bit early for an overview yet, I suppose.”
    (2.3) Medium shot of triage centre.
    Pete (to Shane): “You’ve got a magic talking snake? He’s not going to try and tempt up with apples, is he?”
    Louie (straight faced): “No, I’m the other type of magic snake.”
    (2.4) Medium shot of triage centre.
    Pete: “What, a rainbow serpent?”
    Louie (still straight faced, and now nodding head towards the medical symbol on the side of the ambulance): “No, I’m the type of magic snake that appears on a medical caduceus.”
    Louie: “They didn’t get my good side, of course.”
    Shane (rolling eyes): “I swear, you people. It’s like trying to herd cats.”

    She started out smokin’ hot and ended the scene simply smoked. 🙂

  • davefragments

    Hello Campers,
    How are you this Friday update night?

    • Nofsky8

      Pretty good, how are you?

      • davefragments

        Reasonably well. I roasted a pork chop today and throughly enjoyed it.

        • Nofsky8

          Yum, we haven’t been grocery shopping in a bit so we had ramen noodles,

          • davefragments

            I haven’t had good oriental noodles in a long time. I like the pan-fried variety.

          • Nofsky8

            I don’t think I’ve had that, sounds good though, kind of like stir fry,

          • davefragments

            It’s like MuShu noodles fried crispy and then covered with a chicken in brown sauce with green beans. Most oriental restaurants won’t serve you that because it’s peasant food.

          • Nofsky8

            Huh, sounds good though,

    • Morning.. from a very foggy night here. Sun is just up, not that you can see it since skye is very grey, and living by the inlet means fog. Lots of fog, because the weather is going to be hot later.
      It’s the big carnival weekend here, so hopefully most of the clouds will be gone in a few hours when parade starts. Or maybe some clouds will be nice, since sun can roast you that day, if you walk/watch the parade 🙂

      • davefragments

        Oooh, you got a parade today? What’s the occasion?

        • Aalborg has had a carnival parade the last saturday in May since 1983. No special occation, just a big event. Evnts going on for a week here. One of the biggest carnivals in Northern Europe now, though it can be debated these days, whether the main event is a parade or a huge costumed drinking party xD
          (It’s changed a little during the years)

            That sounds awesome!

          • It’s been almost a handful of years since I’ve gone watching, because bus transport is a nightmare that day for the hours around the carnival, but it’s quite a party. A yearly carnival king queen is picked, and they will lead the parade for a while and have other duties during the day.
            Thousands of people in the parade, even more watching, and many meet in the big city park (if purchased access) and the partying continues with small concerts/music and loooads of booze. Will go on all day, and when the park closes around midnight, many will move the partying to the big ‘drinking street’ (we have a smaller street that contains only bars and a few eating places – one of the most well known streets in the country for anyone over 18)

          • davefragments

            Near me it’s called Groundhog Day and “Punxsutawney Phil” makes his appearance at the end of a nearly week long booze party.

          • davefragments

            Sounds like fun.

      • Kate G

        Oh, you have a carnival this weekend? That sounds like so much fun! I always loved it when the carnival came to base in July. I used to eat until I made myself sick.

      • Morning Danish!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Pretty good – I’m in Providence for my sister getting her Master’s degree (although she’ll be staying on to complete her PhD). Camping from my hotel room now!

      • davefragments

        Cavaliers won

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Darn right they did!!! ^__^

          • davefragments

            Penguins too…
            And I tried to find that puck on my TV. Damn my eyes aren’t that good!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yay Penguins!!

          • Nofsky8

            My band teacher likes the Penguins, but they were playing against our local team, the Capitals, and someone suggested he not go in to any alleys, (we have like one actual alley in the entire county, so,)

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Haha, at least it was easy for him to avoid, then!

          • Nofsky8

            Yeah, and a bunch of the boys started hating on the Penguins with no solid backing and he trashed them, it was so funny,

          • davefragments

            I have a vested interest. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and my Niece’s son (who’s 22) played ice and deck hockey. They met the penguins over the years. Handled the Stanley Cup, too.

          • Nofsky8

            Wow, that’s awesome,

    • Kate G

      Mine is okay! Vince was very naughty today. I was trying to get him into a nice walk for the canter and he decided to walk into a cross rail like, “Nu uh. I ain’t doing no canterin’. Not today I ain’t.” So we cut our lesson short because he was being a big butt.

      I was getting peppermints out of their film wrap (I bring enough peppermints to give to all the horses when my mom doesn’t have her appointment at 3) and my coach came in and asked me if I was paying today (sometimes I pay the next week) and I said next week followed by, “I’m hot.”
      He said, “How can you be hot? I’m cold.”
      “I just got done riding. All you did was sit on your butt and yell corrections at me.”
      He looked at me shocked, then looked at Nick (my former coach) and said, “Did you hear that? She said all I do is sit on my butt and yell at her.”
      And Nick was walking around in the office cackling.

      Larry was formally introduced to Autistic Katie today. No filters. NONE.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hahahaha!

        • Kate G

          I posted that even on Facebook and the first thing my dad says to me as he walks through the door, “That thing about the barn was hilarious.”

          My mom was howling with laughter when I told her; she was surprised he hadn’t met Autistic Katie earlier. I’ve been with him nearly a year.

          He went on to ask, “Are all of those peppermints [I had brought 15 or so] for Vince?”
          I looked at him dead serious and said, “No, they’re for the horses. Yes, Larry, I would bring a handful for of peppermints for Vince. No, no, I give all the horses a peppermint when my mom doesn’t have her appointment. I will one day be that lady who buys 10 pounds of peppermints just for the horses.”

          I should have started out with the “Yes, Larry, they’re all for Vince.” Vince’s favorite treat of all time is peppermints. He’ll accept apples, pears, carrots and lettuce, but he will dart to the treat box faster than you can say his name if he hears the tinkling of peppermints.

      • davefragments

        I met one of my brother’s ponies. A gelding that he was going to use for a pony party after he picked me up to take me home the other day.

        • Kate G

          Oh, that must have been fun! Well, getting any equine into a trailer is a feat but it must have been nice to meet a pony for yourself. We have quite a few at the NFP now. We used to only have 3!

          • davefragments

            “Shadow” knew we were out in the country and wanted at my grass.

          • Kate G

            Aw, they are very good at keeping your lawn mowed.

          • davefragments

            But the deer would object
            {wink, wink}

          • Kate G

            Yes, yes, they would. But horses are prettier.

    • Morgan

      Doing well! A little sick thanks to the adorable parasite taking residence inside of me, but could definitely be worse. How are you, Dave?

      • davefragments

        I’m feeling much better than I was.
        And tonight I’m watching a “favorite” movie on TCM – “Wait Until Dark”

        • Morgan

          Glad you’re feeling better!

          • davefragments

            I hope your malady goes away quickly

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I hope you feel better soon, Morgan!

      • davefragments

        and by the way — there are no “adorable” parasites

        This past February I had a bed bug and that took an exterminator to be rid of

      • Kate G

        Bleh, parasites. Yuck. There is nothing worse than being ill. I hope you recover quickly.

        • Morgan

          In a few months I’ll be fine. I’ll even be able to dress it up in cute little clothes and let everyone coo over it.

          • davefragments

            OH RATS ! DID I GET STUPID OR DID I GET STUPID…

            Congratulations

          • Morgan

            No it’s fine, lol. Thank you. 🙂

          • davefragments

            I send my best wishes and biggest smiles.

          • Nofsky8

            Aha! You are talking about a baby! (Also congrats,)

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Ohhhhh! Congratulations, Morgan!!

          • Morgan

            Thank you!!

          • Morgan

            I am! I was kind of like “…I want to tell people but like…? I don’t know how to bring it up?” Idk. And thank you. 🙂

          • Congratz on the parasite 😉

          • Morgan

            Haha, thank you!

          • I hope it hasn’t been too rough…I had a friend who was bedridden the last few months.

          • Morgan

            Hasn’t been too bad, actually. 5 months in and MOST of the sickness is gone. Just having an off night.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That’s good news!

          • Kate G

            OHHHHHH, you mean a wee bairn! (Go me, being a literal autistic.) I was like, “Why would you want to dress up a parasite? Isn’t it microscopic and something that tries to kill you?” XD Sometimes you get to laugh at my expense. The metaphor doesn’t catch on until someone spells it out.

            I send my best wishes.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It took me a long time to figure it out too, to be honest! 😀

          • Morgan

            It’s fine. I could have definitely figured out a better way to phrase it. It’s more to do with my sad attempts at humor. Tbh, I wouldn’t have caught on if I didn’t already know the punchline lol

          • Kate G

            Oh, trust me, I normally think of babies as parasites. I actually don’t like babies. When my brother had a kid, my nephew and I did not have a good start. It was…rough to say the least. You can see on Instagram the time it took from me to go from absolutely hating him to liking him to being smitten with him through how I portrayed him in photos.

            His pet name has stayed though. I call him the T-Rex online and in person. It’s kind of transformed into Godzilla as he insists on destroying all of my block buildings before I’ve reached level 3. XD

    • Have been reading lots of lovely little Stargate Atlantis fanfiction. ^_^

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      I had hoped it would go better for me…….but as it is I am out of smokes and don’t get paid until next Friday…….so I’m just trying to get through!

      • davefragments

        oh rats. Got to find something for those fingers to do…
        (I used to smoke a pipe)

        • I love the smell of pipe smoke.

        • Wayne Lunkwitz

          It’s not the fingers- hands giving me the fits it’s nic fits!

  • jreed3842

    *overly dramatic gasp* I almost forgot to camp! I was watching clips of random Disney movies on youtube! Haha.
    How’s everyone doing?!

    • Nofsky8

      Pretty good, how are you?

      • jreed3842

        I’m going quite well!! It’s been a relaxing evening. Work wasn’t too crazy, and this evening has been relatively quiet!
        And I’ve spent a lot of it singing to Disney songs. Haha

        • Since the realease of Yurio’s “Welcome to the Madness” dance extra (from Yuri!! on Ice), I’ve gone back on the YOI craziness. Not that I’ve left it, but it’s back at full strength.
          The gloves. The gloves!!!! (Everyone having watched WttM will know what I mean).

          In the last day I’ve watched so many AMV’s made by fans on YouTube. There’s some pretty good ones. And of course I have watched the WttM dance clip 10+ times xD
          Been YEARS since I’ve dorked this much about a fandom. Even beats my Stucky love.

          • That video was just…. WOW.

          • I may be in my mid-30’s, but I can obviously, and a little surprising to myself, still go total fangirling on something. Not just shipping, but squee’ing level (the sounds I made *lol*)

          • Morgan

            -screams- YOI oh my god… finally got around to finishing season 1 yesterday

          • I may never have been this happy about leaked extra material before. I’m sad that the dvd’s are so damn restricted, but luckily the ‘Welcome to the Madness’ dance clip quickly made it’s way online.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            OOOOOOOOOHHHHH!!!!

          • Oh did you see the comment about Yuzuru and Javier? I actually looked it up and they are so cute.

          • I have, and have looked a little. Will check out more later.

          • Kate G

            I’ve been hearing about Yuri on Ice now for months, yet I don’t know where to watch it.

          • The Crunchyroll site is one place to watch.

          • Kate G

            Crunchyroll. Noted. Will search after my shower…if I can stay up. Vince flattened me. XD

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Glad you could make it, jreed!

      • jreed3842

        :-D!
        Always glad to be here!

    • Which ones?

      • jreed3842

        A LOT of Beauty and the Beast (my favorite… I’ve actually been wanting to re watch it again hehe)
        I did some Little Mermaid.
        Tangled.
        Aladdin
        Lion King
        Uh… I think that was it before I realized I was missing camping, haha.

        • Morgan

          All good movies, and Beauty and the Beast is my favorite too!

          • jreed3842

            It is SO GOOD. After all these years it’s still one of my favorite movies of all time!
            And the only one that gives me the fuzzy warm happy feeling. Like… The other Disney movies are great and make me happy… But damn… Beauty and the Beast really hits it home with me!

        • I think I only have two movie adaptations of Beauty and the Beast, I have 3 Cinderella (one I had to order from Japan because apparently despite an English speaking cast, it is hard to find it anywhere else), I think 3 Snow White…

          I love watching the different versions of fairy tales. I think I need to work on getting the Julie Andrews black and white Cinderella…

          • jreed3842

            It is always really cool to see different takes on the same stories!
            That’s a cool little collection to have!

          • Doki collects. ^_^

  • Sapfo

    Good morning happy campers.
    Are there anything candy left?

    • jreed3842

      Plenty! I showed up late to the camp too, so I made sure to bring a bunch of goodies.
      … It’s like when you show up late to a meeting at work so you bring a bunch of doughnuts!

      • Sapfo

        Oh you are so sweet!
        I guess I could run out and get some ice cream mochi (they just started to sell them in a store nearby. Really bad for my waistline XD)

        • jreed3842

          But oh so good for the soul! 😛

    • ‘Morning, sweet Berry. Lots of goodies around and coming.

      • Sapfo

        Thank you Wolfie~~

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I’ve got some peppermint patties!

      • Sapfo

        They sounds really good! 😀

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Help yourself to a handful, Sapfo!

      • Did someone say Peppermint Patties?

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Here you go, Doki love! *offers the bag*

  • Sapfo

    Oooh! I take the last three ones. I assum they are for me ^^

  • *sigh* Disdus is being a pain, only about half of the comments are showing up without me having to refresh this page. -_-

    • jreed3842

      Mine is being weird too… It just keeps saying someone is typing… for like AGES… and then it finally shows up. I don’t have to refresh, but it is being very very slow tonight!

      • Mir

        Mine does that too.

    • Sapfo

      Taking a little break. Come back laster when Disqus is behaving better.

      • The thing is, it has been a fairly consistent problem lately.

        • Have you tried clearing the cache and/or cookies?

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I think I should probably call it a night – got to get up tomorrow and go meet up with my sister. Have a good rest of camping, everyone!

    • Goodnight and have fun with your sister later 🙂

    • jreed3842

      Sleep well!!

    • Nofsky8

      Yeah, might have to go to bed soon too, night, have fun,

      • jreed3842

        I’m thinking the same. I’ve gotta work tomorrow, and I’ll be traveling after work too.

        • Nofsky8

          Yeah, I try not to stay up past 12, even on the weekends, it messes up my internal clock,

          • My insomnia laughs at clocks all the time.

          • jreed3842

            Yeah… I try not to stay up too late either…
            I messed myself up REALLY bad a few months ago when the new Legend of Zelda game came out… I was like up until 2 or 3 in the morning playing… and I always hated myself the next morning… but did I ever stop? Nope… Not until I beat it. Haha.

          • Nofsky8

            Yeah, earlier this week I messed myself up by staying up until 2 reading a fan fic and I’m still recovering,

          • jreed3842

            I’ve done that before too!
            I did it a lot when I was younger, and always got in trouble for staying on the computer after my bedtime. Haha

    • davefragments

      have a good night

    • Night stick! Sweet dreams!

    • Sapfo

      Good night~~

    • jreed3842

      Sleep well!
      I’m probably not far behind ya.

    • Morgan

      Goodnight!

  • Just finished watching a ‘horror’ movie called Area 51 (from 2015). I did that, or rather halfway just had it running without watching closely, so now you don’t need to bother. It’s seriously bad.

    • I watched a movie the other morning because I was just going through things on netflix and I was like “Is that Joe Flanigan (John Sheppard from Stargate Atlantis)? It is!” It was….interesting. His character paralleled Sheppard just a bit. It dealt with the “viewing a parallel universe gone wrong” bit. Only two survived to make it back and boy was there a mess…

  • We have made 100+ comments this camping session.

    • I know. It’s been an active one. Maybe because it was longer.
