The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter Two—Page 45

No. No. That’s not true. That’s impossible! NOOOOOOO!

Ahem.

I’m going to be at BENT-CON 2013 in Burbank, CA this weekend. I’ll be signing books and selling Artifice and The Young Protectors goodies. If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by and say hello!

Also, as y’all know, we have one of the coolest, smartest and most supportive commenting communities in webcomics. In my opinion, that’s the direct result of the fact that you are such exceptionally thoughtful and mature readers! But I do also have a very specific comment moderation policy that is founded on everyone in the comment section addressing each other with “a tone of respect.” Recently, our comment section has exploded in size from around 200 comments a week to over 2000, so I’ve decided to write up the specifics of my comment policy on one page so that all expectations are clear. It’s stuff you’re all doing already naturally, but there are some tips there to avoid unnecessary conflict and misunderstandings that can be useful for us all to think about, especially when emotions run high. (Such as during a dramatic scene in the depths of Hell. 😉 ) You can read my Comment Policy here.

Like I said, there’s nothing really surprising in it, but I do want to bring your attention to one thing I’ve noticed some confusion around. It’s no secret that I’m comfortable hearing criticism in the comments (and, of course, I do like praise too! :D) I myself do my best to respond to direct questions/concerns when it won’t spoil future plot events. But while that’s my choice, no one else in the comments should feel obligated to respond to another commenter if, for whatever reason, they don’t want to. And, in particular, if someone decides to take the high road and step out of a debate before it gets out of hand, that should be respected.

When a particular comment thread stops being fun, the best solution almost always is just to step back and stop responding. To move on without further comment. But, if someone continues to push the issue with you directly after you’ve had enough, I’ve come up with what I’m calling the Standard Bow-Out Language to respectfully make clear that you’re really ready to move on. And when someone uses that language, the other person is expected to respect those wishes and, if they don’t, then I or one of my moderators will step in.

Have there been huge problems with people not respecting someone else’s desire to move on? No. And in fact, things have been especially cool over recent pages. But because there has occasionally been some confusion and misunderstanding in the past, I wanted to create a very polite, respectful and standard way to make this desire clear. Sure, it might seem a bit artificial, but it’s very important to me that everyone here is having fun, feels their voice is heard and has value, and also knows that they can comment on this site without feeling like they constantly have to justify their views to strangers if that’s not pleasant for them.

Some back and forth is, of course, a natural part of a comment section. I write what I write because I want to provoke thoughtful discussion. And we have a very diverse group and I think we all have a lot to learn from each other. But I believe that is most likely to happen when people feel comfortable and safe expressing their opinions. That kind of environment is what the SBOL and my Comment Policy are meant to create.

It’s also my pleasure to announce that, in light of the recent huge increase in the number of comments, I’ve asked two of you to help with moderation duties for the comments section — readers Admiral Jane and SofiaT! Now, I still read every comment and will still be a strong presence in the comment section, but as we’ve begun to approach and exceed 2000 comments a week, my ability to respond quickly to people’s comments has been reduced. So, I’ve asked Admiral Jane and SofiaT if they would be willing to help out in case folks had questions or concerns that needed an immediate answer. They’ll also be keeping an eye out for any direct questions for me that I might have missed and will make sure those questions or concerns are brought to my attention. And they’ll be keeping an eye out to make sure everyone understands the Comment Policy here.

Now, they’ll still be participating in the comments as fans and they don’t have access to the scripts or inside plot info, so they won’t be able to answer any Word of God questions, but if you need immediate assistance with anything else or just want to clear up some confusion, you know they’ll have your back. 🙂

I hope you’ll join me in offering them a very warm welcome in their new roles here!

Oh, and

    MINE!

    • Holly

      CALLED IT! I CALLED IT! I knew it all along! I KNEW IT!

      I claim this virgin in the name of demon babies everywhere!

      • Adam Black

        No one even told me

        • Holly

          Told you what?

          • Adam Black

            about new page

          • Holly

            I posted on the last page that this one was up right after getting the virgin

          • Adam Black

            I was left alone… 🙁

          • Sapfo

            Oh no! You are never alone!

            (adjust camera)

          • Adam Black

            much better.

            ( flexxes, bends over, pulls out the measuring tape )

            you never know when you have to put some shelves….

          • Holly

            I AM SORRY!

          • Adam Black

            forgiven

    • mogoskier

      Awww, I wanted to be first, just to fuck with you guys. Though for winning here a garden of lilies and roses

  • Sapfo

    The good, the bad and the virgin?

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      No, there was thingy smushing so it’s the The Bad, The Worse, and The Deflowered.

      • davefragments

        Can I use that?
        “The Bad, The Worse, and The Deflowered”

        It’s so deliciously, wonderfully, a great short story title.

        • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

          I would love to see that attached to a short story.

          • davefragments

            send me an email and when the story is done I’ll let you know. dave at fragments dot ws …
            and no, I don’t live in western samoa.

  • No, no, no, no… DAMNIT.. course you page for not wanting to scroll down

    • Sapfo

      I agree with you Danish. This is not good. She have grown to strong.

      • And just as I posted I had that ‘Your internet has stopped working. Try to find a solution’ – message pop up and stop everything for about 10sec.
        The android is using machines against us, I’m sure >.>

        • Holly

          What? How would I even do that? *smiles*

        • Sapfo

          This is probably my last virgin hunt on TYPE for some time. Going to move to a new apartment soon and the internet is not completely connected yet. So I’m going camping in a bad internet for the next few weeks. 😛

          • Holly

            My work schedule might prevent hunts… But that’s a maybe. bad internet is just sad.

          • So you made Holly your apprentice to hunt against me …

            Couldn’t you just have left the android alone? You had to make her thirst for virgins.. don’t you know that at some point your apprentice would surpass you. Have Star Wars learned you NOTHING? 😉

          • Holly

            Sometimes Imagine you are like nyancat but made of a danish and a wolf. *VYING FOR ATTENTIONS*

          • Sapfo

            No I will really try for the virgin even on bad internet connection.

            By the way: “I am the Sapfo. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to my own. Resistance is futile.”

            And I do think the Holly was your apprentice in the beginning….

          • Holly

            Sapfo is the Borg? O_o

            Also, I obviously learned from both of you. Thus using both your powers for my own purposes.

          • Sapfo

            I have many depths 😉

        • Holly

          You computer messing up AND a Migraine. that is just a bad day. *Hugs the DW*

          • Yeah, and I was gonna go watch Thor today since my plans had to be changed so I couldn’t go last friday. That’s not happening now either because of the headache, and there’s another couple of things to my bad-day list that I don’t want to write here.
            It REALLY isn’t my day today, and it’s hardly started yet. Hope it gets better later.

          • Niggle

            Thor doesn’t get released in the US until Friday. D:

            Hope your day got better!

          • It got better, but didn’t get to see Thor 🙁 It’s been out here for a week. I’ll try again in a couple of days, and maybe I get to see it this time 🙂

          • Niggle

            Hope you get to see it soon. Both my Europe friends (England and Sweden) have seen it already. Sadly I’m unlikely to get to see it this weekend.

          • It got better, but didn’t get to see Thor 🙁 It’s been out here for a week. I’ll try again in a couple of days, and maybe I get to see it this time 🙂

  • So close.

    • b3nc0

      I see the [Moderator] status doesn’t give ‘passe-droit’ on the virgin hunt, good to know :°P

      • Nope. I have no forewarning of anything.

        • b3nc0

          Jus’ kidding, I meant to emoticon like this ;°P

  • Y’all crack me up so much. LOL 😀

    • Sapfo

      I really hope you never what go to fight for the virgin. It would be kind of unfair 😉

      • Holly

        Alex can’t go for the Virgin. He’s the God. So that makes him the Daddy. So that is WRONG

        • Sapfo

          But I thought Laampros was the daddy… I am confused now.

          • Holly

            No. Laampy is Kyle’s daddy.

            Alex is the Pages daddy.

          • Sapfo

            But if Alex is pages daddy, do that mean that Alex is Laampros grandfather?

          • Holly

            Well if Lucifer is the father of all demon’s and God is the father of lucifer? Then yes. Yes he is.

          • b3nc0

            Laampy is a Demon-daddy and Mr Woolfson a God-daddy.

        • Jacob

          Next up on Maury…. “WHO IS THE FATHER?”

          The results may shock you! 😛

        • Adam Black

          That is a wicked Christian Analogy Holly.

          I see that Camp did wonders for you

          • Holly

            I’m going to a facilitator this year ^_^

          • Adam Black

            SWEET SHOWERS OF SATURNALIA

          • Holly

            WHat?! What?!

          • Adam Black

            ( the christian camp yaoi-liccious events you have yet to give us dirty details on )

          • Holly

            It was like 9 or 10 years ago, I recall very little.

          • Adam Black

            if you were a man, ( into it ) i suspect it would impressed into your mind like wax

          • Holly

            If I had not rushed out in a blushing awkward rush I would have seen more details. Or maybe if the guys were more attractive.

    • So glad we could amuse, Alex :P!!

  • dereule101

    WHAAAAAAAA!!
    So many people called it, but I’m still flabbergasted!

  • jreed3842

    Oh shit, girl… I had a feeling something like this was about to revealed! It’s getting deep now.

  • davefragments

    IT’s LAAMPROS who gets the big reveal.
    Now is he adopted son or “flesh and blood” spawn?
    And look at the face on Kyle!!!!

    • Did Duncan know?

      • davefragments

        I don’t think so but I’ll withhold saying “not he didn’t” until the chapter is finished.

        Added: it is just a likely that Laampros just thinks he be nice as his offspring or a lieutenant by his side.

      • jreed3842

        That’s what I’m wondering as well… I’m interested in seeing Duncan’s reaction.

        • Oh indeed! Is his face slack or is he still lost in his own pain

  • Sapfo

    SON!!!!

  • Jakk Anthony Guzman

    I love Laampros’ facial expressions.

  • silibub

    I KNEWWWW IIIIIITTTT

    *gasps for breath* I’m really sorry, I won’t be able to come up with anything coherent for a bit. BECAUSE OH MY GOD, SINCE WHEN AM I RIGHT ABOUT ANYTHING?

    • Holly

      RIGHT NOW! ^_^

      • silibub

        *high fives* We are prophet queens!

        • Holly

          Today is just MY DAY! I mean everything is coming up me.

          Though now I am severely reconsidering rewritting the origins of the hero in Altered Fates. THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY SIMILARITIES NOW.

          • silibub

            Good for you! You gotta savor those random days when everything goes well. And hey, sometimes rewriting improves the story tenfold, even if it isn’t what you originally had in mind.

          • Holly

            This means no hell hounds though *pouts*

  • …wait what?

  • Holly

    Aww LOOK at Laampy! He is so proud and affectionate! I am saying this right now Adam made some sort of cross roads deal for his drawing abilities! I mean, DAMN!

    Also Veronica’s colouring is brilliant as always!

  • mogoskier

    If Laampros is Kyle father that make the random touching before a bit more creepy

    • Holly

      I am trying to phrase this so it doesn’t come off weird, but i feel it would.

      My mom has a tendency to carress me in really weird ways when she it trying to show affection. Maybe lampy has the same problem?!

      • mogoskier

        I see your points but Kyle didn’t know lammpy was his father and I’m going to guess that lammpy know that Kyle didn’t know, soooooo

    • Xalun K

      As a mother with 2 kids, I caress my kids as a sign of affection. It’s not weird to me. (Uh… except for the whole demon thing. That’s maybe a little weird.)

      • But you don’t caress them while talking about experiencing mortal pleasures…

    • b3nc0

      I’m not sure Laampy knew when the touching happened… But I’m quite sure it wouldn’t have stop him, demons have weird & creepy ways after all!

  • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

    Well, Duncan must be peeing himself.

  • Oooooooo… Plot twist. Well played. 🙂

  • DiDi

    What? What????

  • Xalun K

    Alex. Alex I’d say I think you broke my brain, but this has been a going theory since the beginning of this particular arc. Brilliantly introduced, though. I can’t even imagine how Kyle must be taking this news… or Duncan, for that matter. Somehow I get the feeling that Duncan is going to be slightly more traumatized by this news than Kyle will be.

    • b3nc0

      «OhmyGosh!OhmyGosh!OhmyGosh!
      OH! MY! GOSH!
      Did I just commit flesh contract with my /nearly/ future in-law?»

    • Thank you, Xalun. I’m glad you like how this was handled. 🙂

  • Tina

    *covers ears to drown out all the fans screaming I KNEW IT!!!* Dude my heart skipped a beat when he said “beautiful boy”. I was like, oh no, oh no, oh no no no…

    • Holly

      Were you terrified for the Daddy reveal, or did you think right up until the end it was something more predatory and less fatherly.

      • Tina

        No, I sort of expected it after sifting through everyone’s explanations as to how this could be. I’m slightly relieved since this reduces the chances of Kyle/Lampy sexy times but yeah the touches are… weird…

        Also makes me concerned for Duncan. Lampy might want revenge on the silver fox for breaking his son’s heart

        • Holly

          OOO THIS IS SO WHY LAAMPY FINDS DUNCAN PATHETIC!

          • Tina

            … THAT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW!!! He kept calling Duncan names but never called Kyle names… I JUST NOW NOTICED THAT!!

          • Holly

            DUDE! I am trying to have a moment with my son. Can we talk about your stupid pathetic stuff later?!

          • Steven K.

            That’s an interesting thought/possibility.

    • Adam Black

      for some reason I read Alexs Blog post first!

  • dereule101

    I guess Kyle has his mother’s looks…

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      Yeah, now we have to find out who’s the mother.

      • Holly

        DEAD

      • dereule101

        I’m gonna guess Anne Coulter just because no one else comes to mind when I think of people who would bed an evil demon.

        • Holly

          I’m guessing someone more pure and less evil.

          • dereule101

            Heehee

        • davefragments

          The bad seed love child of Ann Coulter and Jonah Goldberg. (I’m just being so bad tonight…)

          • dereule101

            Ha! This sounds like the setup of some kind of Three’s Company spinoff. IN HELL.

        • Adi Zeller

          So, you’re saying Laampros is Kyle’s benevolent parent?

          • dereule101

            I’d like this comment a thousand times if I could. I sure as hell couldn’t picture Ms. Coulter expressing affection.

        • Steven K.

          Kyle’s much too goodlooking and adorable to have been produced by her.

          • dereule101

            Very true.

      • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

        George is a Georgina!

        • Holly

          NO! Kyle’s mom is not George. That makes no sense.

        • Sapfo

          Mpreg? then George can continue to be our beloved George

          • Holly

            GEORGE IS NOT THE MOMMY! How would that even work?! Was Kyle birthed from the pupil!?

          • dereule101

            Gives new meaning to the term dilated pupil.

          • Holly

            A MILLION POINTS! THAT WINS!

          • Steven K.

            And that made me chuckle even more.

          • Steven K.

            That made me chuckle.

    • Ha!

    • NovaLaMason

      HA! xD

  • Katie Chambers

    SAY WHAAAAAT!?
    You did… Wow.
    Didnt see THAT curveball coming

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      Next panel as Duncan and Kyle gape with horror: “Just kidding! He’s really just an attractive human kid with unusual powers.”

      • Holly

        That is cruel even for Alex.

        • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

          But it isn’t too cruel for Laampros. Some characters have a life of their own.

          • Holly

            …I suppose that could happen.

  • KrisYWC

    HUGH GASP OMFG I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING. OMG OMG OMG I had to stop the movie I was watching. OMG I am in pure shock. Alex you are a genius. /bows down

    • I loved reading your reaction to this here and on Tumblr. Made me grin ear to ear. Thank you. 🙂

  • Jakk Anthony Guzman

    If Laampros is the father, then that puts Kyle in a very difficult position, IF Laampros is going to bring a demon army over. Laampros may have other ideas of his own.

  • Been working out lately, new diet. Left me worn out. Only in the early stages of this new lifestyle. Dinner with a friend, I’m tired. Settle down for the night, open up Tumblr. An accident, I swear.

    New page. Huh. *click*

    WHAT THE EFFF!!??? LEAP out of bed, grab my robe, and here I am ready to hang out for a bit. First, all you good folks who hypothesized that Kyle was Laampy’s son, KUDOS, CONGRATS, PROPHETS TO YOU, GOOD WORK!

    The rest of us (and all you wonderful prophets too): How did this happen? Did Laampy just figure out Kyle was his son or did he know all along? Who was him mom? How did she er…accommodate him? What happened to her?

    And what’s Duncan doing right now besides wetting his pants…er tights and codpiece???

    • Holly

      Of all that you just said, it is the word codpiece that gives me pause. I do not think that Duncan has one….

      • Hmmm. I will delete that then. But he’s not wearing pants, right?

        What is he wearing? Just tights?

        • Holly

          Tights and shorts? I do not think you know what a codpiece is lol.

          • I just looked it up and laughed myself silly…

          • Holly

            *head pats and smores*

    • I’m guessing Laampy knew it was a relation to him, but he feared Kyle might be weak since he got captured. But he’s now proved himself. Maybe?

      • Holly

        AJ why does it say you are a writer? Has it always said that? Is this discuss being weird?!

        • dereule101

          She’s a mod now. 🙂

        • I’ve been wondering that too! Thanks for asking, Holly.

        • Um… I take it that you didn’t read all of Alex’s post? I’ve been promoted to moderator.

          • Yay! Sorry, I was a bit shell-shocked by the reveal but I will def read the entire post now.

          • I don’t blame you for that.

          • Holly

            Yeah I totally missed that section. Oopsie doodles.

            Congrats! *hugs*

          • Thanks.

          • No. Congratulations.

          • Tank you!

          • b3nc0

            Congratulations and thank you for helping Alex & us!

          • Thank you! Alex is amazing and I wanted to do all I could to help.

    • Holly

      WHAT IS YOUR TUMBLE GRYPH!?

      • Right here: http://gryphongirlyaoi.tumblr.com/.

        What’s yours?

        • Holly

          http://mshap.tumblr.com/

          I warn you. My Blog is kind of “Everything I find interesting”

          • I have been properly warned…I’m up for it.

          • mogoskier

            I believe that is majority of tumblr

          • Holly

            Most people i follow actually have VERY strict blogs. One fandom, or only for fanfiction, etc.

          • mogoskier

            Really hm, I just get a lot of randomness on my dash. Then again that seems to be my overall expertise with the internet.

          • Holly

            Well, dash’s are random. Because you follow many different kinds of people. ^_^

          • mogoskier

            True that, and now I follow you

          • My experience too.

          • Feverfew_M

            Oooh, tumblrs! Followed! 😀

          • Holly

            OOO maybe I will make it to 50 ^_^

      • davefragments

        I actually think that Kyle’s demonstration of strength against the spell (not to mention his hot body) convinced Laampros that Kyle was worth more than Duncan. You see, Duncan is just another sycophant wanting immortality and earthly power but Kyle has abilities over fire and isn’t weakening in the hell dimension…

        • And I’ll bet that if Kyle is let loose in that hell dimension, he will only get more powerful.

    • Steven K.

      Yep – those are the questions we all want – NEED – to know (ASAP)

  • I love this page sooooo much. I love Laampros sooo much. He is all happy and Kyle is all “don’t touch me don’t me don’t touch” “I’m scared and confused he is kissing my forehead! ewww!” and “what the hell? so not happy about this!”

    And I am not sure if it is from reading everyone’s previous posts, but I cannot stop laughing.

  • OH MY GOOD HEAVENS… well all I can do for a moment is congratulate Alex, Adam and Veronica on another amazing page and go and think about this for a while…. Yowza.

    Thanks guys!

    Does Hallmark make a card for this? No, but I bet Maury Povich does.

    Laampros: “Kyle, running away with a strange villain to Hong Kong, you where only 17 at the time. What do you have to say for yourself?”
    Kyle: “He is hot”
    Laampros: “You are grounded!”
    Kyle: But I am chained.”
    Laampros: “Yeah, to the ground!”

    Edit:
    Kyle: “I think you misunderstand the meaning of grounding someone”

      • Steven K.

        So harsh – lol.

    • Ha!

    • Tina

      Kyle: but dad my team needs me!
      Laampros: well you should have thought of that before kissing strangers in alleyways

      • Holly

        Laampros: Also, all of this Hero business. I’m not sure i approve.

        • Tina

          Kyle: Ugh! You never approve of anything I do! I’m a teenager! I want to go out and save the world! What’s so wrong with that?!

          • Holly

            Laampros: are you punishing me for not being there when you were growing up? We’ve talked about this, tiny one, I was stuck in a hell dimension.

          • Tina

            Kyle: You could have called! Or wrote a letter! Or sent me a little demon to let me know you were okay! But no! I had to live out my teenage years wondering why MY DAD didn’t bother to come train in using my fire powers properly!

        Thank you! ^_^

  • Holly

    I know I already commented on this. But just LOOK at Laampros. He’s all smiles and love. There is REAL affection coming off of him. It’s amazing to see! I just… I LOVE IT SO MUCH! ^+^

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      You can also see it on Page 36, where Laampros is tickling Kyle under the chin like you do with a baby.

      • Holly

        OH MY GOD! Hindsight: “Wow, that last time i had sex was when I sired my son. And he’s an adult now.”

        • Adam Black

          yup

  • Cookie

    CALLED IT
    Well, sort of. Figured he had demon blood, but somehow it didn’t occur to me that Laampros himself might be daddy dearest.

    • davefragments

      The Platinum Princess Sircea is going to be in for a surprise.

      • dereule101

        She’s going to be so jelly. Her daddy was a podiatrist.

        • davefragments

          That would make Duncan’s father a proctologist

  • Holly

    WE NEED FATHER SON FANART! *bounces excitedly* I may have had too much sugar this camping trip.

    • dereule101

      Oh my gosh, I was just thinking of doing this as my first fan art.

  • With Kyle as Laampy’s son, how did Kyle come to be in the mortal plane?

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      Well, his mother had to be in the mortal plane when she gave birth to him.

      • Very true. Did Laampy pull a Zeus?

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          I’m not sure how Laampros and Kyle’s mother got together. Did she travel there? Did he travel to the mortal plane?

          • Holly

            I WANT HER NAME TO BE SOMETHING LIKE ROSEMARY!!!!

            Well, Erda is, appropriately enough, I guess, depicted as located underground, but I don’t think she was that difficult for him to get to.

          • That’s what I want to know!

          • Holly

            That is a really good question. I mean Laampy seems to be PRETTY stuck where he is…. *scratches head.*

          • Exactly. *Crosses arms* want to know!

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            My impression is that Laampros has been there for a very long time.

          • Jamie Dutton

            Um what if it’s more like what happened in “Little Nicky”? Too many margaritas one night and here we are 18 mortal years later!

          • Holly

            So you’re saying his mom is an…..

            ANGEL?!

          • Jamie Dutton

            Not sure about the angel part, actually.

          • Holly

            You made the little Nicky reference I was just going with it. XD

          • Jamie Dutton

            I was leaning more toward the drunken debauchery part, but well with Alex ya never know!

          • Holly

            Kyle is so a Rosemary’s baby.

          • Steven K.

            Ummm…physically, he’s about as far from that as one can get. He certainly LOOKS angelic.

          • Holly

            He looks sexy is what he looks like.

          • davefragments

            I have a thought that Laampros’s mother is Tucker Carlson but that is too cruel to be anywhere near true.

          • Steven K.

            Wow. Even I, a venerate GOP-hater, found that one surprising.

          • mogoskier

            She could have pulled of a silent hill

          • Holly

            OOO I LIKE THIS THEORY

          • Adam Black

            what is a silent hill trope?

          • mogoskier

            It not a trope but a plot to a video game,( skipping all the details, emotions and other good things in the game); you find out that a cult is trying to bring there god into our world. They do this having him be born to a girl with some kind of power and the torture her so her hate can feed it. I don’t think Kyle’s mom was torture but it could be possible that impregnated via ceremony.

        • Holly

          He pulled a many things AJ.

          • Zeus seems about right though. I mean showers and swans and…

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            AJ, Kyle’s mother being human can’t have traveled to that place. Humans don’t know how to get there.

          • I thought Zeus in those forms came to his chosen? er went to his chosen

          • Steven K.

            Duncan did – I assume PP as well, We all know now also.

          • Steven K.

            Duncan did – I assume PP as well, We all know now also.

          • That makes a lot of sense to me too.

          • Holly

            Merlin’s Father was an incubus.

          • But who is the mama? or what is his mama?

          • Holly

            Kyle’s mama? I’m guessing some random mortal woman. Ideas stretch from random virgin to demonic cultist.

          • Sorry, my mind is wonky. Maybe he can turn to mist.

          • Holly

            Sex Mist?

            ….. That sounds like a really cheap cologne.

          • It does, doesn’t it.

          • Holly

            TOTALLY

          • Sex mist, a Justin Beiber product.

            I’m sorry. That was very bad of me. 😀

          • Holly

            Okay explain this to me. Celebrity perfumes. Men makes men’s cologne, women make women’s perfume, but 1D and Justin Beiber make perfume for girls.

            EXPLAIN!!!

          • mogoskier

            Because no man wants to smell like Justin Beiber or 1D. In theory the perfume make you smell like someone that JB or 1D would be attracted to.

          • Adam Black

            Canadian hooker, American or elsewhere?

          • Justin Beiber is inexplicable. And 1D…. I hold no notion. I mean NKOTB never had perfume.

            Hey, you want Beiber back? Surely there’s a return policy. We appreciate the thought, Canada, but he he doesn’t fit.

          • Adam Black

            call it “Le Holy Espirit”

          • Holly

            Why?

          • Adam Black

            are you serious? 🙂

          • Holly

            Yeah I think I’m missing the joke.

          • Adam Black

            reference to how an “angel” can make a virgin conceive

          • Adam Black

            dont spoil it with a clean christian allegory

          • If I make any christian allegory, clean or dirty, it’s quite by accident, considering I was raised in a buddhist (not the Tibetan variety) house hold.

          • Adam Black

            Karma Sutra, NOT Kamma Sutra—

            There is no mist,

            You just have attachments to mist in mind ,

            From Nothing sexy mist arises,

          • Adam Black

            Platinum presistess

          • That would be some ruse she has going there. Letting Duncan think that if Kyle had been straight, she would have been to one to sex him up. So if that’s the case, Duncan is just her tool.

          • Adam Black

            YUP,

            he is, though isnt he?

          • Then I guess he’s not as smart as we thought. Or she’s controlling him in some way.

    • mogoskier

      I just want to know if she was human or another demon.

      • Unless this is the form of the young?

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          I’m thinking that Laampros can probably change form.

        • Holly

          I had a theory, but timewise it does not work. It was so good as well.

          • Don’t leave us in suspense!

          • Holly

            If Laampy USED to be human had somehow sired Kyle either before or after becoming a demon. but that would mean he was only a demon for 18 years which is really far too short. He seems kind of eternal. At least a few millenia.

          • Well, maybe he’s timelord ish?

          • Holly

            Well Time IS supposed to work different in hell. A few months here is decades there. However, it seems like he’s been around in lore for a while.

            So maybe time lordish…. maybe….

            hehe demonic david tennant.

          • demonic david tennant…with a package like that…siring children

            something kinda sexy about that idea

          • Holly

            He can lead me into temptation any time… 😉

          • I now see him in 3d glasses and a trench coat.

          • I agree. Laampy seems ancient and it seems like he’s been there for a very long time.

          • Adam Black

            Time different in Hell?

    • I have this theory that revolves around Jack Harkness and Nutella. Would you like to hear it?

      • Holly

        *sits and waits patiently for this*

        • Ok, so you know how Jack Harkness fucks anything, right?
          Ok. So you do know. Good

          Jack Harkness, his transporter now temporarily fixed thanks to Martha Jones (you know the episode), has found himself stranded in hell, his transporter rebroken and facing the largest demon he has ever faced. Swallowing hard against the dryness in his throat, Jack opens his mouth and the first thought he has springs forth.
          “Hey, wanna fuck?”
          The demon, taken slightly, has no comment.
          “I mean, if you help me get back to earth I’ll fuck you. Or something,” Jack says, his normal suave nature missing. He is disoriented, of course, being in hell, but tries to put on the charm.
          The demon smirks and draws Jack to him, running his claw over his arm, drawing symbols Jack doesn’t know.
          Then.

          Jack gaspes and draws back, licking the sticky, hazlenut chocolate from his lips. Laampros wipes the rest of the substance across Jack’s tight chest and smiles.
          “You may return to earth,” Laampros says with a wave of his hand. “But I shall deliver a child unto you that you must care for. He shall be a prince in hell and…”
          “Yes, thank you, sure,” Jack says off-handedly. Laampros smiles knowingly and Jack disappears in a wave of fire.

            No, they didn’t use it as lube. I wouldn’t use it as lube. Infections and discomfort abound.

            No, they were using it as more of a foreplay device.

            Think it through… for reasons

            Found the list. I was wrong about the squid, it was jellyfish I was thinking of.

            Read it at your own risk, it is not a pretty thing to read.

          • Steven K.

            I assume because it might be confused with …err..something else?

          • Adam Black

            actually vice versa.

          • Adam Black

            yikes
            ( cooked squid or raw? )

          • Sapfo

            It only said squid. But if you take squid and napalm at the same time, I do think it counts as cooked.
            (there where worse thing on that list)

          • Mr. Black…that was completely wonderful, particularly after the second viewing. Thank you for sharing.

          • Adam Black

            welcome.

            i was still discovering details more by the fifth

          • Chris Dangerfield

            It was excellent musically, lyrically and visually. Worth your time and then some. Thx Adam.

          • Then I will view it a few more times…

  • I FUCKIN CALLED IT!!!!

  • At least Kyle didn’t get the horns.. he was just horny.
    (sorry I had to get that stupid pun off my chest).

    I don’t think Laampy has been more scary than he is in panel 3 and 4 here. Affectionate is so not his thing.
    I really, REALLY wish there was a panel showing Anni’s face right now. How much did he know of this?

    Can’t say I’m truely surprised with this big revelation, because it’s been speculated about for a while (or maybe I’m just a little numb right now and it has to sink in). I’m having such a Star Wars moment here xD
    Now one COULD ask if Big L means it literally.. or is there a chance he meant it metaphorically because Kyle is of fire-powers? Looking at the strange circumstances of Kyle’s origin and powers, being part demon would explain a lot.
    I hope reproduction works differently with a demon, or he can change size – or Kyle is simply just ‘made’ and didn’t have a mother in the literal sense of it. The logistics of someone of Laampy’s size and a human .. *cringe*

    • NO PUNS!!!
      Danish, come on!

      • *lol* I’ve had that one bugging me since I read the page, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to concentrate on anything else before I said it. It needed to be said >.>

        • LOL I know, I know. I had it in my mind too. I just have this deep rooted hatred of puns. You now how that goes.
          Or do you?
          I don’t know.

          • Enlighten me. Now I’m curious. Have I missed something?

          • Oh, maybe it’s just an American dad thing, but my dad is the worst at making puns. He can make a pun out of anything. I got a dog and he made a pun out of it. I don’t even know how he did it!! lmao

          • Then you should probably never read Dominic Deegan Oracle for Hire…..you probably wouldn’t be able to read it for all the puns. Though there are plenty of eye rolls in it.

          • Holly

            *cries because it’s over*

          • *hugs Holly a few tears leaking out* I know, I know.
            A lot of tears were shed….a lot of tears. I really cired a lot when Bumber was killed!!!

          • I might try it…but um… I don’t want to ruin a great work with my lack of love for puns.

          • Yeah, at least three-ish pun using characters and an alliterative cat.

    • Holly

      I think it’s kind of a Trigon thing.

      And I think he can probably change sizes. OR maybe demonic posession. I really don’t see how he could have gotten out to sire a child…

      • That’s what I’m thinking. So it could be more of a metaphorical thing that he calls him son, or an (magic) old kind of creation through a summoning/posession.
        If Big L really had gotten out of that place once he wouldn’t have gone back freely, so how exactly did he sire Kyle?

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      No need to cringe, Laampros can probably change form.

    • Steven K.

      I agree with a lot of your ideas and assessments here – very good post.

  • Jamie Dutton

    HOLY COW!!! Alex friggin did it again! I am so freaking stunned right now! It took me a few moments to figure out what the heck to type!
    Congrats to all of ya’ll that called this one.
    Adam that look of adoration on Laampuru-kun’s face is wonderful!! The art in this whole arc has just been incredible!

  • Tina

    I’m thinking, maybe this is like the Greek Mythology where gods would sleep with mortals to make demi gods. So maybe Lampy posed as a red headed mortal, slept with Kyle’s mother, killed her after birth so she wouldn’t try killing Kyle and put him in the orphanage to grow stronger

    • Steven K.

      That would be cool, except for the killing the mother part. Hopefully that was not part of the scenario. Will be hard enough for sweet hero Kyle to accept such a potentially evil parentage as Laampros – even worse to deal with would be if the father had killed his mother on top of that.

  • Not gonna lie, little jealous of the Admiral and Sofia there. 😉 You guys are great commentors, though, so I look forward to your administration. Is that the right word?

    • Ha! Maybe moderations?

      • Maybe! I don’t know. I’m so tired I can barely see my screen. I just had to stay up for the page, though. >_<!!! I had to!

          • I thought white willow is what made aspirin. And agree regarding prozac.

            Very well, a salmon muffin. Good supply of omega 3

          • Adam Black

            aspirin= hard on your liver

            Salmon? Your muffins are getting grosser.

            Well I LOVE to accept your backhanded compliment that I have gotten smarter, ( from a professor no less.)

            But its a far more parsimonious explanation, that having taken the comic a little less seriously, you are actually funnier.

            Adam, I know that you guys are having fun, and I’m sure your posts are a hoot but think for a moment what they must appear like to other commenters? A long thread of comments that don’t make sense unless you bother to use google translate for each and every one of them, are not very commenter-friendly, are they?

            The Admiral has already switched back to English for some time now, so how about you guys continue the discussion in a language everyone can understand? 🙂

          • Your sense, little does it make. 🙂 Are you saying the coffee muffins should grow on vines with cursed caffeine?

            Re Google translate: Can your coffee muffins on the vine, and your forefathers forever curse your caffeine

          • Adam Black

            dont be ridiculous, I was saying , you should add a flourish of decaffeinated muffins , to the family business, so you don’t get insomnia

            ( No really, google just lost the word “wither” )

          • Shhhh, everything I make with coffee is made with decaf. My mother gets heart palpitations from the caffeine, so whether its ice cream (mmm, need to get some kaluha), truffles, muffins what have you, ’twill be done with decaf. 😀

          • Adam Black

            go buy…. ( ?) Go to your basement and grab some decaf esppreso beans and grind them to black dust, and mix in vanilla ice cream.

            ( or chocolate )

          • But I can just make the ice cream. Gots me an ice cream maker. 25 minutes and done! I just prefer coffee ice cream with kahlua.

            Okay a couple hours in the freezer after, but at least I know what’s in it. I don’t know what’s wrong with those ice cream company peoples adding weird ingredients in.

            Or are you suggesting that I make my own kahlua

          • Adam Black

            Cream dillutes coffee flavor too much, makes it cloyingly bland.

            thats good in coffee but bad in icecream

            by literally mixing in oily black coffee dust to the ice cream, it taste like a coffee explosion in your tongue.

            Its so simple. Just mix it in.

            use decaf ( or not ) espresso , turkish grind

            it doesnt even taste that bitter. get the best of both worlds. The flavor stays compact, like fudge or chocolate chips

          • I make it with two shots + of decaf espresso and cut down the amount of milk.

            (Coffee roaster hat on) Actually, espresso is just a drink/way to make coffee, and can be made out of any type of coffee, out of any type of roast from light to dark. That whole espresso roast thing is just a misunderstanding in this country. (coffee roaster hat off) *shooting star* The more you know! 😀

          • Adam Black

            I mean add the finely ground beans to the ice cream.

    Am I the only that finds all the petting that much more disturbing now?

    • Petting=way disturbing

    • Holly

      As I said to someone earlier, my mom pets me. It’s bugs the hell out of me. She just thinks it’s affectionate. Parents are WEIRD.

      • CH

        Kyle was naked and tied up at the time, and Lampy was petting his chest and abs, not his shoulder or arm.

        • Holly

          Yes…. I was about to say something else. but I really feel like I’m painting my mom in a bad light. HAHA

          • CH

            No I get what you mean about parents, weirdness and petting, but Lampy was going Too Far IMHO

          • Holly

            Well if Kyle wasn’t naked it would be less weird.

          • Adam Black

            But Laampos still is,

            and massive schlong

          • Holly

            naked seems to be vogue in hell though

          • Exactly. TO be caught in pants is a faux pas.

          • CH

            Pants are just sooo mortal.

          • The teasing would be unmerciful

          • davefragments

          • Ha!

          • Steven K.

            That may be why they don’t wear them – due to the risk of being CAUGHT in them – or the risk of certain rather prominent parts getting caught in bothersome things like zippers, etc.

          • Adam Black

            thats why God invented velcro pants

          • Steven K.

            That’s true though.

        • Feverfew_M

          On the other hand, naked seems to be the normal look in hell.

          • CH

            I will grant you that, maybe to Lampy Duncan is the werid one for putting bits of cloth on himself.

          • Feverfew_M

            True! I really think Duncan should show a bit more respect towards the local customs. Or costumes. Or lack thereof. Whatever. 😉

        • Adam Black

          and Lampy was naked too,

          plus long and slappy ….

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          That’s because Laampros’ hands are HUGE. They take up all of Kyle’s torso.

          • Jamie Dutton

            The first time I saw Laampuru-kun’s hands, I giggled cause he’s got big ol’ yaoi hands, lol.

          • Exactly my thought!

          • Adam Black

            yes, just his BIG LONG FLOPPY hands Dragging all over kyles naked body

        • Steven K.

          Well, he could have been proudly admiring the masculine musculature of his son, saying to himself – “That’s daddy’s boy! – great physique – like father like son!”

          • CH

            Still disturbs me, but this is most definitely an opinion topic and I respect that.

          • Holly

            Yeah. I think if Laampy had smaller hands it would be less weird.

          • Adam Black

            their cocks are PROBABLY touching;

            I was afraid you’d be curled in a fetal ball

          • Steven K.

            Dude – maybe you don’t understand – I’ve been worried most about Kyle getting hurt or tortured or sexually abused or raped or otherwise sexually traumatized. It now looks as if I don’t have to worry about Laampros physically HURTING Kyle – or “exploring the limitations of human flesh” with/on him and tearing him apart, etc. This may not be the most ideal revelation or situation for Kyle, but under the circumstances, could have been a lot worse. And we now know Kyle is, whatever all the very other implications might be, in a position of power. In some admittedly odd ways, I find some of this strangely comforting, while other aspects are still a bit worrisome – such as how this fact and information will effect Kyle psychologically.

          • Adam Black

            Not so fast.

            Laampros DID say “exploring the limitations of human flesh” with/on him” and clearly finds him HOT and thinks he OWNS HIM.

            Do you really think Kyle is LESS traumatized by this?

            ” I find some of this strangely comforting,”
            Daddy fantasies? There will be plenty of fuel for that

          • Steven K.

            Oh – I think there is a possibility of Kyle being further traumatized emotionally – that’s now my bigger worry at the moment. My fantasies are more along the lines of hoping some hot younger fellow would have some of those “daddy” fantasies toward me.

          • Adam Black

            Now that Laampros is sweet towards him,
            you are thinking hey, maybe he is just a foster-dad?

            You should try and mentor young gay scientists. Youll get to play Daddy real quick.

            Soon as i found out you spoke Sanskrit and had a doctorate I would totally date you.

            Banging Scientists is totally my deal. ( I suppose you thought that merely was a joke. Jokes that are true are my favorite kind. Ive had 2 chemists, a psychologist, a Roboticicist, a doctor, a dentist with 14 inch cock ( for real ) , a romanian mathmatician ( 5th dimensional topography ) He was so perfect , and beautiful, he broke my heart.

            That is my evidence, I’m sure is there more I forgot

            Maybe you live in the middle of nowhere and maybe you have low self-esteem. Both are fixable.

          • ……you are sooo lucky. Scientists can be very hot. Not sure I would go for a psycho doctor (sorry, that is what I call them) though…

          • Adam Black

            No you dont. Getting dumped with Psychobabble is totally lame.

            Psychologists just have what they think are better excuses for bad behavior

            chemists are often drug addicts

            that dentist was a whore. ( 14 inches )

            Doctor had a BF,
            Roboticist— he needed to date the psychologist, secretly Borderline .

            not that lucky

          • i am still kinda drooling over the 14 inches….just once would be nice.

            Chemists remind me that I once wanted to be a chemical engineer (I used to be smart, but then I broke) and I think the less sane part of me would greatly enjoy being a mad chemist. Pretty sure I have the laugh and crazy eyes down. ^_^ 😛

            Intelligence is a big turn on for me.

            And as long as you gained something from those relationships, even something tiny, they weren’t a waste.

          • Steven K.

            I totally agree:
            Once with something like that would be nice.
            I was once going to be a chemical engineer.
            I’d love to find an intelligent AND cute guy.
            I don’t think those were a waste either – I still think he was lucky. I’m a year shy of 50, and not in my entire life have I had an impressive assortment like that.
            A beautiful and perfect Eastern European mathematician even once in my life would be nice. And this was just the “science” assortment. If I’m lucky, I tend to average maybe 1-2 experiences with a decent (nice and/or attractive) guy per year. Sometimes not even that.

          • I know right? And I bet his accent was to die for.

          • Steven K.

            I bet you are right!

          • Adam Black

            Well the mathmetician didnt choose me,

            he was shy and adorable.
            ( black hair, Blue eyes, lean hard body )

            So I walked right up to him, smilled at him and told him I wanted to spend the rest of the evening with him ( or words to that effect )

            ( I might have also mentioned it was my birthday and I wanted him as a present )
            I was surprised it worked, too

            ( last time i tried something like that It nearly started my first bar fight )

          • Adam Black

            Im sick. Im not feeling it today.

          • Adam Black

            or at least less awful.

          • well that sucks.

          • Adam Black

            what can you do with it?

            end up in the hospital

          • Steven K.

            I don’t have low self-esteem – not in general. I’m not very happy with a few physical things right now, but I have soooo many good and positive qualities – they just don’t happen to be any that people around here that I’m attracted to appreciate. If *I* could just find some “perfect and beautiful” scientist or any other kind of intellectual who isn’t going to be freaked out by the fact that I have nearly 3 feet of tubing sticking out of a small hole in my abdomen that never quite heals totally and that I have to keep coiled up and taped into place with a bandage covering most of my abdomen or a special belt to keep it from flopping all over the place and getting in the way of everything – I hate it with a passion – and two more shorter catheter tubes sticking out the base of my neck that have a common insertion into my internal jugular vein – yeah – like finding anyone like that who will look past all that is going to happen anytime soon in this persnickety community. All I get are people who can’t seem to deal with all that and want nothing to do with me physically once they see or know about all that.

          • Adam Black

            ” If *I* could just find some “perfect and beautiful” scientist…”

            What are *YOU* looking to look past?

            if age and back hair are dealbreakers for you , you are probably tossing out all the fish that will bite.

          • Steven K.

            I don’t actually speak or know a lot in the way of Sanskrit – I just know a few things about it and have a number of texts along with various transliterations and translations.

          • Adam Black

            So you cant read the kamma Sutra to me in the original language, while I act it out?
            damn shame that.

            You cant raise people hopes and dash them like that.

          • dereule101

            I think Laampros may have just been making Duncan squirm with the limitations of flesh talk, but that’s just my inference.

    • Steven K.

      Maybe – I actually find it less disturbing now, since now the connotation or context is not an overtly sexual one.

      • dereule101

        Agreed.

      • Adam Black

        Steve, WE do not KNOW that….

        It can be BOTH. Hes a DEMON

          • Adam Black

            yup

          • Adam Black

            does it have any?

        • Steven K.

          Yeah – if that were a reality. There are def, controversial elements of this story, but If you think Alex wants to open that proverbial can of worms or walk off that cliff of demon-son homosexual inter-species incestual sexual assault – well, that might be a bit much to pull off without problems considering his other goals and intentions

          • Adam Black

            “well, that might be a bit much to pull off without problems considering his other goals and intentions”

            That is Alex’s specialty. All he needs to do is make Laampros mistaken about Kyles parentage on a later page.

            Incest is ruled out a priori. Plot twists are not

  • KryX

    Could Laampros be talking metaphorically? Would this keep him from having improper feelings for Kyle, this is a demon and this appears to be hell after all. Have we counted Duncan out to soon; could this be part of his plan all along? He and the PP have had a lot of time to plan this, could they have made the connection years ago and formed a plan? Will I have dreams of a handsome redhead with red skin making love to me tonight? I can hardly wait to see.

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      I don’t think that Duncan knew. Duncan said something like: “Your inability to speak may be what saves your life” to Kyle.

    • Steven K.

      That first question – was one of the first questions that crossed my mind as well.

  • Jamie Dutton

    Oh boy, if this is true and not just a metaphor, Anni better start groveling right about now!

    • Holly

      Do not reject your Dad, Kyle. He’s your one chance for a family!

  • Steven K.

    Ummmm….WOW – not that such a thing wasn’t predicted by some, but still ….wow. I’m actually still relieved that Laampros is not going to sexually molest Kyle, though this revelation may hold some other kind of emotional traumatization. At least Kyle is getting some bit of comforting finally, though not from anyone he might have expected or wished.. I did think that affectionate paternal kiss was oddly rather nice and poignant. So many mixed emotions here.

  • Holly

    I should probably go to bed soon so that I am rested for work tomorrow…*looks around* BUT NOT YET

            Fine. But only because i’m sleepy, and you are a mod, and my friend, and muffins.

    • Steven K.

      As if he wasn’t going to be in enough need of that already after recent events. Hmmmm…when Duncan told Kyle that he has powerful friends (at the time indicating himself, I think, though that comforting statement unfortunately and tragically proving to be false in regard to Duncan being a friend), I don’t think he had been predicting this.

  • Xalun K

    When I left there were a few comments; when I come back there are a LOT. I can’t keep up!

    I hope on the next page we get to see Duncan’s reaction – especially curious to see if he knew already thanks to Sircea (spelling? Maybe wrong…).

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      I’m thinking that he didn’t know. He told Kyle just before they left that “his inability to speak would probably save his life”. So Duncan thought that Kyle would be in great danger.

      • pinglederry

        IDK, it seems like they must’ve suspected something. Why else would Sircea have mentioned Solomon in her conversation with Duncan before the Hong Kong date when talking about whether or not the invisibility powder would work on Kyle? The Book/Lesser Key of Solomon is all about how to summon/control demons.

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          That could very well be true. On the other hand, Sircea may want Duncan to know as little as possible for her own purposes.

  • SofiaT

    Since this theory has been floating around for a while now, I don’t think many of us were particularly surprised. What a way to make the reveal though!

    What does surprise me, is how a big red ugly thing like Laampy can have such a good-looking offspring like Kyle. He must be taking after his mother…
    Btw, how cool would it be if his mom was an Angel?! 😀

    • Holly

      Is this another little Nicky Reference? Or are you serious?! ^_^

      • SofiaT

        Little Nicky?

        • Sapfo

          I think its a Adam Sandler movie. He is the son of Satan, I think

          http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0185431/

        • Holly

          Like Sapfo said, it’s an adam sandler movie. Nicki is the son of Satan, and it turns out near the end of the film that his mom is an angel.

          • Sapfo

            There we have it, Kyles mother is a angel xD

          • *thoughtful*

            I like the idea that Kyle’s mommy might be an angel. Plus, aren’t angels hermaphrodites? That suggests even more possibilities and theories.

          • Holly

            They aren’t hermaphrodites. They are genderless. And that depends on a lot of context. They can be interepreted in many ways. Bi-gendered, Genderless, hermaphroditic. It’s up to Alex really.

            In the bible there is an angel that is just a wheel of eyes.

          • SofiaT

            I just like the contrast.

            And then the nature vs nurture debate gets a whole new variable into the mix 😉

          • SofiaT

            Ah. Haven’t watched it. 😀
            Sorry, on the bus home from work atm, haven’t had the chance to read any comments yet.

    • dereule101

      “What does surprise me, is how a big red ugly thing . . . can have such a good-looking offspring…”
      Is it bad that I sometimes wonder this in real life?

      • Holly

        OOO I CAN EXPLAIN THAT IN REAL LIFE! Genetics are weird. When I am less tired this will make more sense.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      As an alternative to the Little Nicky model mentioned below, perhaps the situation is more like the Innsmouth Look from the HP Lovecraft horror stories – where the affected individuals start out life looking human but as they get older slowly metamorphose to take on their non-human ancestry. (Although I think I can safely predict that *that* idea won’t be a popular one.)

      • Steven K.

        Interesting idea in any case. I don’t think, however, that Kyle, under the circumstances, could have possibly gotten any “hornier” than he already was though.

    • Steven K.

      Yeah – I totally had wondered about that myself! Are the human alleles dominant? A whole area of theoretical metaphysics could be opened up to ponder such things. An angel maternity would be pretty cool – I can see how ANGELIC alleles could def. be dominant over demonic ones. But, if we had both parents being of metaphysical origin, how is it that Kyle is so totally HUMAN-appearing – so “meaty/fleshy” so to speak – and existing in the human plane. You’d think if both parents were such types of beings, he’d be born into one of the metaphysical planes or another. Although, in this case, with such “opposite” parentage, maybe it was thought that Kyle should be born into ” neutral” territory.

  • Steven K.

    Not only do we get to see more of Kyle’s hot tufts of red sexy armpit fur, but we see that he has a red-hot treasure trail as well!!! (one of the other features that, if an attractive guy has it, turns me on to no end). I am surprised though, if Kyle really is an offspring of Laampros, that his doesn’t have more of a furry chest and torso. As I’ve said, that would be just about the only thing that could make Kyle even hotter.

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      He could also take after Laampros in other ways, Steven. 😛

      • Holly

        Demon Powered love muscle?

      • Steven K.

        OMG – don’t even get me started on that thought process. If we base things on genetics, then in that Kickstarter goody nude line-up, Kyle should be the most heavily endowed. Wouldn’t that be a kick to Duncan’s ego. Though he should have discovered that during their round of “thingy-smushing”.

    • Holly

      Treasure Trail with an otherwise smooth Torso is confusingly sexy…

      • Steven K.

        It IS, isn’t it. I’ve always thought so. Same thing with otherwise smooth guys that have a little patch of chest-fur between their pecs. That sort of thing drives me wild/CRAZY erotically.

        • Holly

          I cannot stand chest hair. I don’t know why. I’m weird i guess.

          • Steven K.

            It has to be the right kind for me – fine and soft, not too wirey or gnarly or curly.
            For me, OTTER BOYS are the sexiest!!

          • I began to like it more as I got older. It’s really weird that.

          • SofiaT

            At 19 I had a huge crush on Hugh Jackman.

            I obviously always liked my men hairy 😀
            (Except shoulders and back. No hair there please).

          • Well, Hugh Jackman, I don’t know who can’t look at Hugh Jackman and want. 🙂

          • HUGH!! <3 <3 <3
            I've had the biggest crush on him for …around 17 years! Since I saw him in the Australian movie, Paperback Hero.
            No it's probably more than a crush since it's lasted that long, and nothing has changed (maybe that explains why I'm fine with being single, no one can match him xD)
            I think he might be the only person that could have me flabbergasted or even fainting if I ever met him in real life. Either that or I'd be so shocked about meeting him that I won't go into hysterics at all (until possibly afterwards when reality hit me).

          • SofiaT

            I think that’s Alexander Skarsgard for me.

            My brain would melt -along with other parts.

          • Hugh is so very delicious. There isn’t anything more to say. 😀

          • Steven K.

            I agree – I like some fur, but it has to be in the “right” places – no shoulders or back. I think “semi-furry” guys are the hottest – the ones with interesting patterns and patches and trails on chest and torso, etc. When Deacon was making comments about Jeff’s interesting body-hair patterns, I smiled in agreement as he and I “shared a moment”.

    Oh, and for all you guys who think the touching is creepy — I have 2 kids, 15 and 4, and they both are touched, caressed, stroked, etc. quite a lot. It’s my version of affection, and neither of them (that I know of) are creeped out by it. in fact, my 15 year old still sits in my lap sometimes when he’s had a bad day and is in need of comfort.

    Simply touching isn’t creepy. Not at all. Laampros HIMSELF, however… Well, he’s pretty damn creepy, so *any* touches from him are going to be uncomfortable, just because, HELLO DEMON. Hahaha.

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      I did not see any inappropriate touching by Laampros. He tickled Kyle under the chin like one does with a baby. And then he had his hand on Kyle’s chest. Laampros hands are so huge that they take up most of Kyle’s chest.

      • CH

        It’s not this touching that’s being discussed but the earlier touching Jakk.

        • Holly

          Jakk is talking about Page 36.

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          Yes, that’s what I’m referring to, the EARLIER touching. Laampros just hand his hand on Kyle’s chest. And he tickled him under the chin. So to be very frank CH, I did not see Laampros touching Kyle’s dick or ass. So I don’t see what’s inappropriate.

          • CH

            Ok, sorry, just feel like it’s being said that my discomfort is an attack on someone and it’s not.

          • SofiaT

            A lot of people were uncomfortable when Laampros touched Kyle a few pages ago, so you’re not the only one. Personally, I never thought there was anything sexual about it but I can see why people would think that.

          • We are allowed to fantasize! ^_^

          • Steven K.

            Yeah – I was one who was VERY uncomfortable with that – even if not OVERTLY sexual in the PLACES being touched, Kyle was naked and bound, Laampros was naked as well – it couldn’t help being sexual or having sexual overtones just by the nature of the circumstance, IMHO. I was also uncomfortable with it because Kyle himself was OBVIOUSLY so uncomfortable/horrified/aghast at it – clearly for Kyle is was unsolicited and unwelcomed touching by a giant frightening naked demon of his helpless and vulnerable naked body (how was there any way Kyle would not suspect or fear that a little tickling and caressing would be just the beginning leading to all kinds of unspeakable bodily or sexual assault, especially given Laampros’s own talk of “exploring the limitations of human flesh”). So….yeah – made me totally uncomfortable. That’s why, with this development, I’m actually somewhat relieved, in some ways, though fearing other traumatic repercussions mentally/psychologically, etc.

          • Adam Black

            lol

      • Adam Black

        but we cant see any other touching offframe ,

        but its implied , due to pure size and gravity

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          What frame? What panel? Laampros was SITTING next to Kyle when Kyle first arrived there and Laampros came over to him. And now Laampros looks like he is leaning over the stone altar, or whatever it is.

          • Adam means because Laampy is naked and leaning over Kyle that certain appendages maybe a little too close.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            I understood that, Admiral. But as I said. In the beginning Laampros was SITTING next to Kyle. And now he looks like he is leaning waaay over that stone altar. So I don’t see any possibility of Laampros’ endowment touching Kyle. And IF by some accident it did, it would be accidental and not on purpose and therefore not inappropriate. To me inappropriate would indicate intention.

          • I think most of it’s said to be provocative.

          • Adam Black

            Its 2 feet long.

            Its just reality of Volume — not provocation

          • It obviously doesn’t even enter Laampy’s mind.

          • Adam Black

            I cant tell

          • Obviously was the wrong word. But I don’t think it passes through his mind that he’s naked or that his dork is touching anyone.

          • Adam Black

            Its something that men usually notice

          • Kyle probably is, but I’m not think Laampy. But then Kyle might be too freaked out to notice.

          • Adam Black

            It might partly explain his look

          • 😛

          • Xalun K

            Just because Laampros is male doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a ‘man’ as we think of them. Species differential… Laampros is a demon, not a human. I doubt the thought processes there are very similar, including what’s going on with your own junk.

          • Adam Black

            “what’s going on with your own junk.”

            leaving my junk out of the story, my point is that its a sensitive part of the body, like your nose lips or fingertips.

            This isnt just a human quality, but cross species.

            Thought processes may be different but I doubt its like a animals tail that they forget where it is.

            If hes a Dad i dont think its vestigal.

            He simply may not care. Which is amusing on its own

          • Xalun K

            LOL You dork, ‘your’ being the collective term. Haha. As for his junk, my point was exactly that – he probably doesn’t care at all. That baby’s free swinging all the time, so why bother caring about where it is or what it’s doing, as long as it’s not poking him in the eye?

          • Adam Black

            well when you tell a man “your own junk” it gets his very direct attention.

            I was thinking “Its totally away” i dont usually forget.

            We are assuming lampy is male. he (?) is a different species. Alex is tricky

          • Adam Black

            ITS 2 FEET LONG….

        • Steven K.

          Since things have been in shadow, we don’t know that Lampy hasn’t actually been wearing an industrial-strength g-string, holding things aback a bit, with the rear-string part being lost in Laampros’s ample ass-crack.

          • Adam Black

            I didnt see him get dresses

    • Jamie Dutton

      Someone further down in the comments mentioned it might be creepy cause of Laampuru-kun’s HUGE hands.

      • Adam Black

        yes, his ….HANDS

    • CH

      As was said as the discussion went on the creepy has more to do with how he’s touching his Naked Tied-Down son, not the touching in general. If there was less nudity, or a little more localized touching it wouldn’t bother me in the least and I started the discussion.

      • Steven K.

        Yes – that’s a very good point. I can def. feel the various points of view on this matter.

    • Xalun K

      I did miss a lot of the convo, so I’m not entirely sure what was said… just wanted to give my perspective. 🙂

      • CH

        Just explaining what I found uncomfortable about it.

        • Xalun K

          I apparently can’t read because I missed the part in your other comment where you said you are the one that started the discussion.

          I can see how someone might find it disturbing considering Kyle’s current state, definitely.

          • Steven K.

            Absolutely. I just don’t have as much fear now that Laampros has the intention of harming or physically/sexually (with intent) assaulting Kyle – but still recognize that all of his touching/fondling/kissing could be found by Kyle, in his circumstances, to nonetheless be terribly unsettling and disturbing if not still rather traumatic. If I were to just find out that my mother was the female equivalent of this giant hell-lord, and I was bound and naked in front of her, and she wanted to give me a hug and a kiss, there’s no way I wouldn’t be totally freaked out and find that exceedingly disturbing.

    • Interpolation

      Yay for cuddly family! Your household sounds like a nice place~.

      The reunion between father and son could be so sweet–if it weren’t so horrifying.

      • Steven K.

        Right – that’s just the thing.

    • Sai

      Still… you don’t do it while standing around naked and talking about “pleasures of the flesh” like he was a few pages ago. Beehh.

      • Steven K.

        That’s true enough though as well – maybe Laampros was posturing in order to not let on to Duncan before their deal was finalized that there was this connection to Kyle. What a coincidence though, huh? – The one fire-powered, virginal-combustible-dimensional-transporting-hyper-orgasm capable hero that Duncan finds to blast him past the walls of blood and pain just HAPPENS to be the kid of the underworld-lord he wants to do business with. In other speculation, one could assume that Laampros is an immortal being – so what does that imply for Kyle’s life-span? He seems to currently be aging at a normal rate – will he stop aging soon? He may not have to worry about getting old like Duncan. What does this also imply for Kyle’s ability to resist or be immune to physical damage – he might be resistant as well. Also, you’d think that, with his mystical-occult origins, he should have been able (perhaps if he had known) to resist or counter that spell (or maybe he was more vulnerable because of it? – though did Duncan know about Kyle’s origins?). Fucking around with and abusing the hell-lord’s progeny, though – maybe not the smartest thing if he knew. I can’t help but thinking Duncan was not aware of this, though that would have made it more of a coincidence. Also, maybe it was Kyle’s relationship to this realm that allowed him to at least temporarily disrupt his magical bonds and strike Duncan. But then, why/how was he subdued by them again ?

        • Adam Black

          In Duncans defense he did try to protect Kyle from Laampros.

          • Steven K.

            Oh? Maybe kind of half-heartedly.

    • Steven K.

      Yeah – I think you have the proper perspective in both parts of that assessment!

  • Congratz to @admiraljane:disqus and @fc6208f8c0c0706e8e8a0fe083e0eef4:disqus for the new ‘titles’, but maybe you should ask Alex to change it to say ‘moderator – Yaoi 911’ instead of ‘writer’, if possible.

    It could potentially be confusing to have three ‘writers’ around, especially with new readers not knowing the difference. For some reason Disqus couldn’t/wouldn’t let me tag Alex directly to ask?

    (Edit: Why did Sofia’s name come up that way now? I’ve seen others show her name ‘correct’)

    • Discus gremlins? 🙂

      Edit, oh hey, you got your wish!

    • Adam Black

      perhaps he hasnt commented yet

      • Oh, so you need to have commented on a page to be able to be tagged on it? I didn’t know that.

        • Sapfo

          Alex have commented on this page. So that can not be it.

          • Hmm.. Disqus being wonky? Maybe that’s also why @disqus_P2huBPd9nS:disqus shows up as Greek letters in my comment when I know I’ve seen her name tagged in English in others. I don’t understand the weirdness of Disqus o.O

            (And now it IS in English.. I’m so confused. My migraine makes this to weird for me right now)

          • SofiaT

            That showed up ok now… o.O
            Curiouser and curiouser.

          • Same here.. You suddently have a mysterious 2nd tag name, and @Alex W. can’t be found at all for me.

            Why are Disqus being evil with meee? Haven’t I used it enough for it to be nice?

          • Sapfo

            Big bad Wolf 😉
            It might be an error, and it may be a setting somewhere.

          • Wait.. you said that @alexwoolfson:disqus HAD commented on this page, so I went back to look for the comment.
            For some reason that comment didn’t show up for me the first couple of times I looked, but now that it finally did – and I can tag Alex again. It was like he avoided me *snif*.. first no show of his comment, and then I couldn’t tag him.
            Disqus IS being straight up mean to me today. I can sense it. It enjoys my utter confused look.

            It’s the eye of George. It doesn’t want me to sneak away with the Key.

            I have a terrible terrible time remembering names, and will tag people ( secretly ) with nicknames like ‘greek Sofia in Australia’ so I do not forget who they are.

            I am wondering if there was a field i might have added that to, and disqus took it literally

          • And now I am fighting myself to dare ask the nicknames all are.

          • Adam Black

            well… depends.

            ( that sounds better in Urdu )

          • I probably shouldn’t ask. I’ll just get myself into trouble. Because I’m probably tagged something awful and then I’d tempted to mess with your comments and… HA!

            Disqus have been kind of strange this whole camping. As you can see on the comment on the previews page.

            It did give me quite a scare when nothing worked about 30 minutes before the new page was added.

      Adam had made my name appear like that as well and I thought it was his doing… I don’t have any of my Disqus settings in Greek so I don’t know why it would suddenly decide to announce me as “Sofia in Australia”… and using the ancient greek form no less.

      I smell a conspiracy here *looks around suspiciously*

    So is Kyle Laampros’s son or his… “son”?

    Also, I definitely thought he was gonna lick up Kyle’s tears. Everyone knows tears are the preferred snack of demons. Choosy demons choose tears.

        Kyle would be hot anywhere.

    • Xalun K

      Kyle’s a lot more pretty than Daimon, though. And probably better adjusted, even after this. o_O Haha

      • Steven K.

        Yeah – Kyle def. is more totally adorable, esp. for a demon-spawn. We’ll have to see about the “better-adjusted” part, PARTICULARLY after this.

    Stands back and watches the Chaos unfold

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      I thought Sircea might be his mother. I don’t see how a human mother could travel to Laampros. And I get the feeling that Laampros hasn’t left that place in a long time. Sircea is a sorceress, she might be able to. On the other hand, she doesn’t seem to know much about Kyle, unless she’s pretending not to know.

    • dereule101

      Thought about it earlier but I’m convinced otherwise. If it’s true, then how utterly creepy would her comments be right before she sent him on a date with Duncan? And how completely reprehensible would it be for her to have done that at all? I think the most salient evidence against PP being the mother is Duncan’s (paraphrased) comment: “If you hadn’t been gay, Sircea would have been the one to do this.”

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        Yes, that seems to rule her out. Unless as a sorceress, she could have found another way through her magic to release his energy without having sex with him.

        • dereule101

          Then why go through the business with Duncan at all if it could be done without sexy time?

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            I have no idea. She seems not to know about Kyle and at the same time she does. Did you see the print in the store called “Something Brewing”. It shows Sircea and Duncan. She has a seal that shows a woman holding up a baby and a fire creature around her. Sonny seems to think that it shows the birth of Kyle. If that is so then Sircea knows much more than she’s telling.

          • dereule101

            Yes, I have seen the print. That was one of my first clues, before the reveal, that Duncan and Sircea were plotting to take advantage of Kyle ahead of meeting him. I think it’s entirely likely that she knows Kyle has demonic or at least non-terrestrial heritage. That’s why they needed him and why they had to confirm his nature on the Hong Kong date. What I think is unlikely is that PP would knowingly seduce and shag her half-demon son if he were straight, or enlist her male friend to do it if he were gay, if there were some other non-sexual method for hitching her wagon to Kyle and taking a trip to Hell.

          • dereule101

            Also, she would have known his heritage/nature if he were her son, so the speculative conversation just after Kyle went through the portal to Hong Kong would have been unnecessary.

          • Adam Black

            perhaps to fool duncan

          • dereule101

            For what reason? Not doubting your idea, just not sure to what end that would lead.

          • Adam Black

            Into going to hell to give her Immortality.

            Duncan takes all the risks

            ( and perhaps gets possessed )

          • dereule101

            With your possession idea, this definitely holds some water. I’m not convinced of the Plati-mum Priestess idea, but I like the idea that she set up Duncan to go into hell instead of her.

          • Adam Black

            @jakkanthonyguzman:disqus s descriptions all logically follow.

            and Alex has totally shown to skirt the boundary of creepy ( with this reveal ) if he can pull back.

            So unless it actually happens, we cant judge it

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Well, you are assuming that she cares. She’s would only be his biological mother. She didn’t raise him, so she might not care who has sex with him, especially if it brings her eternal youth and perfect health. As to her having to have sex with him herself, well I don’t know. That’s the part that makes it difficult for me to believe that she’s his biological mother. As I said, she may have found another way to do it, assuming that she was his mother. The speculative conversation may have been to keep Duncan in the dark. If Alex is planning on springing another surprise about Kyle’s mother he’s not going to make it easy to guess, and IF Sircea turns out to be the mother, then he’s going to make sure that not too many things point to her. There is no way to really tell for certain at the moment.

          • dereule101

            “As I said, she may have found another way to do it, assuming that she was his mother.”

            I guess what I’m trying to convey is that if she knew of another way to use Kyle to get to Hell and gain immortality without sexing him up, it wouldn’t have been logical or pragmatic for her to have instead chosen such a convoluted method i.e. having Duncan gain Kyle’s trust and seduce him. She would have been able to get her immortality without involving Duncan at all.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Unless she didn’t want to go herself at all for some reason. IF she had been the one to release his energy, by some magical way, she may have still used Duncan to take him there.

          • dereule101

            Maybe. You posit some interesting ideas. But that still brings me back to Duncan’s comment. “If you hadn’t been gay, Sircea would have been the one to do all this. As it is, it was left to me.”

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Yes, It was left to Duncan and he handled it his own way. If the task had been Sircea’s to do, she would have chosen different ways/methods of accomplishing it. But I’m sure in the end it would have been Duncan the one who took Kyle to Hell, not Sircea.

          • dereule101

            Well, I’ll concede the point to you that Laampros did imply that there are multiple methods of crossing the barriers between earth and Hell.

          • Adam Black

            agreed

          • Adam Black

            EXACTLY

          • dereule101

            And btw, I’m less assuming she cares and more assuming that Alex wouldn’t include in his story a mother who would either be incestuous with her son or set him up to be molested by her friend so she and he could gain immortality.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Well, she was NOT incestuous. Nor was there ever a possibility that she could be since Kyle IS gay. It was just a supposition on Duncan’s part. And Kyle was NOT molested at all. He consented to have sex with Duncan, and was legally an adult.

          • dereule101

            Of course she wasn’t incestuous. It hasn’t been revealed if she is his mother, after all – we’re just entertainingly the possibility and what that entails if so. I said “would be” if 1) she were his mother and 2) he were straight. Based on what Duncan said, she would have been the one to seduce him if he weren’t gay. Whether it was just a supposition or if it was something he and Sircea discussed, we just don’t know. He didn’t say “I assume Sircea would have been the one to do all this.”
            All we have to go on is Duncan’s word and past conversations, which I understand can be seen as ambiguous. You’re right about Kyle’s legality. Maybe molested was a florid word choice, but at the same time it’s one that doesn’t specify age or legality. The consent is a topic that’s already been exhaustively discussed so I won’t delve any further into that.

          • Steven K.

            Right!

          • Steven K.

            Well, it was a little touchy there (fig. and lit.) after the spell.

          • Steven K.

            I’d certainly hope so!

          • Adam Black

            agreed

          • Steven K.

            Most likely correct about all that as well.

          • Adam Black

            we dont know she would have, that way

          • Steven K.

            Yes – you’d think that would be so.

          • Adam Black

            sweet

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Oh sorry! I misunderstood you. You meant why have Duncan have sex with him. She might not be that friendly with Laampros anymore, or maybe she just wanted to let Duncan get screwed.Or maybe she just didn’t want to take any risks if she didn’t have to. We’ll have to wait and see what happens. She may or may not be his mother.

          • Duncan may have just been a tool so Laampros could meet his son.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Good one, Admiral! 🙂

            I get the feeling that she is planning to throw Duncan under that big red bus; I’d love to see it, too.

          • Oh I hold no doubt about that

          • Adam Black

            agreed

          • Feverfew_M

            Oh, thanks, bring on the theories, then 😀

          • Adam Black

            maybe Laampros takes Duncans Body,

            and that means Kyle has will have to save Laampros.

            Immortality for the witch and an heir for Laampros may have ALWAYS been the real plan.

          • dereule101

            Now there’s a hypothesis worth considering.

          • Adam Black

            WE Shall see 🙂

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Assuming that Sircea is the mother and the mastermind behind it, it would mean that Duncan probably doesn’t know much about the plan. One of the things that confuses people is the statement by Duncan: “If you hadn’t been gay Sircea would have been the one to do it”.

            Well, THAT may have been what she told him once they found out about Kyle being gay. Had he not been gay, Sircea could have found another female to do the sex thing and then used Duncan to take him there.

            I mean, IF she’s his mother she wouldn’t want to give it away to Duncan for her own reasons. So what better way than to tell him that she would have done it if Kyle had been straight.

          • Adam Black

            It doesnt confuse me,
            @dereule101:disqus

            Shes a witch, she probably made Kyle male, and gay,

            that would give Laampros a better Body in Duncan to take over.

          • Steven K.

            Well, yeah – IF all those “ifs” are true, you are probably right.

          • Feverfew_M

            Save Laampros to save Duncan? And free him from Lampy’s possession? Send his own father back to hell? Cool!

            ((AJ, are you sure it was sanity you’ve handed over to me???))

          • Well, my sanity. Who knows if its the sanity you’re used to.

          • Feverfew_M

            I don’t know what scares me more, your kind of sanity being in my brain, or our esteemed admiral giving parts of her own sanity away… ;D

            which one isnt?

          • True.

            I found this one funny today http://satwcomic.com/part-of-the-gang. But that’s mostly because I have a love of Scotland.

            Have you read Humon’s other work?

          • Sapfo

            Yes, I have. I do really like it all. and especially when she then explains it so well afterwards. It adds depth to the most of what she have done.

          • SofiaT

            Her comments are my favourite part, especially in SatW. I will often read a page and be a bit “huh?” because I don’t get the reference but then the explanation will make it all clear and I will laugh and laugh and laugh… plus a lot of it is either social commentary or about history and -as a sociologist and a history geek- I like both! 😀

          • Two days I lost reading it! I couldn’t put it away.

            Adam said it was all your fault when I tried to blame him.

          • Sapfo

            I might have given him the link some pages ago. So I can take part of the blame
            But it´s a good kind of blame, so I don´t mind 😉

            There’s a Danish woman who found success in making webcomics. It’s ‘simple’ made, but has a humor people like and can relate to.

            Yeah – I think you’re right.

        • Adam Black

          she touched him tentacles— rule nothing out.

      • Adam Black

        just as creepy as the last scene

      • Steven K.

        That’s very true. Although Duncan may have just been assuming that, and Sircea has of course kept her relationship to Kyle a secret. I don’t really but the PP-as-mom theory, but it’s still an interesting speculation.

        • Adam Black

          unless Lammpy is the Mom

      • Adam Black

        well if if @sonoftheatomicbiscuithead is right and she represents Circe, than its par for the course.

    • mogoskier

      While that a cool theory I don’t see it being true. Kyle (from what we can tell) was not raised by his birth mother, and what magic user in there right mind gives away there half- demon baby. It’s too useful a tool.

      • Steven K.

        Got a point there!

    • Steven K.

      Of course that messes with the idea that some of us have that Duncan and PP are brother and sister. If your theory is true, and the brother-sister theory is true, then Kyle just fooled around with his uncle.

      • Adam Black

        The incest Exclusion rule ( Alex) says both claims can not be true.

        Since we are going the star wars route, Kyle can only kiss relatives, not screw them.

        I think PP is either Duncans hag or FB. and I am leaning toward FB.

  • Feverfew_M

    Oh noes! You can’t show me a demon showing affection!!! You’re totally messing with my head! Now I not only want Duncan redeemed but also Laampros. Can’t help it, I am that much of a softie…
    Honestly, this comic will be the death of me… *shakes head*

  • Feverfew_M

    Oh, and congrats to our new moderators! Tough job, girls, but I’m sure you gonna rock it!

  • …okay, now I’m forgetting all about sexytimes and just want father-son bonding time!!

  • Dante

    Has there been mention of Kyle not knowing who his parents are in a previous comic?

    Is it possible that Laampros’ demon spawn is bonded to Kyle rather than Kyle actually being his son?

    • He told Duncan he was raised in foster homes, so it indicated he was an orphant.

      • Dante

        Thanks. I’m sure I could benefit from rereading from the beginning, especially with all the revelations.

    • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

      He never said he didn’t know who his biological parents are.

  • Cid Highwind

    Heuheu! Interesting >333

  • Sargon

    I knew it!!

  • Becky

    Oh dang, Kyle. Don’t worry though, your destiny is not the Dark Side!

    • Adam Black

      or he will turn back, just like Annakin

  • AliceVenturi

    Well, isn’t that interesting! Sweet little Kyle is Laampy’s son! I suspect that Kyle takes after his mom’s side of the family. Speaking of which…now that we know who Kyle’s dad is, who’s his mom? And no, I don’t think it’s the Platinum Priestess.

    The Eyeball is all jealous now.

    I just looooooovvvee your talent for depicting facial expressions, Mr. Woolfson! Those expressions on Kyle are marvelous! Seriously, a lot of comic artists (and other sorts of artists, too) telegraph facial expressions, rather than actually drawing them. Facial expressions are difficult to do, but you make it look both easy and natural, rather than “cartoony” (for lack of a better word). I’m impressed.

    • AliceVenturi

      Okay, I probably should have addressed my gushing fangirl art squeeing to Adam De Kraker, the penciller. So, there’s credit in the “About” section for the pencils and the colors; who does the inks?

      • Guest

        Adam DeKraker does the penciling. Veronica Gandini does the coloring.

      • SofiaT

        All three members of the Holy Trinity (Alex, Adam and Veronica) are credited in every page, on the last panel.

        But the last few pages have been very yellowy/orangey with the whole “trip to hell” background, so the white script is hard to discern. I can hardly read Vero’s name on this page and I know where to look :o/

      • I also agree that Adam does amazing work with expressions! I ask for a lot of subtle “acting” in the scripts and he nails it every time. I feel so lucky to be able to work with him.

        And I actually prefer the subtlety of colored pencils vs. inked work and he and Vero are so good, I was happy to discover we don’t have to use inks to get these kind of results. 🙂

        • AliceVenturi

          I suspected that might be the case, but wasn’t sure. There’s an organic feel to the art that seems to come with fewer hands involved. And Vero’s colors are just fantastic. I’m a real sucker for the masterful use of color.

        • Adam Black

          Alex, are the pages digitally created files,

          do they start as paper and are scanned in?

  • SofiaT

    Hi Toli!
    Although you’ve posted a few times before, I believe this is the first time we talk, so first let me say welcome to the comments section! 🙂

    I also understand that Alex has already assured you on Twitter that the incest thing isn’t something you should be worried about, but I thought I’d mention it here too -in case there are other people here that share that same concern.

    So here it is: Incest is not on the cards folks! 🙂

    But please let me or @admiraljane:disqus know if you have any other questions or concerns and we’ll be happy to answer them if we can. (But don’t ask what’s going to happen next. We don’t have a clue!)

    Best regards,
    Sofia

    • Toli Bera

    *turns around to Anni*

    YOU! On the other hand. Tricking my darling into thinking you had something together. What do you have to say for yourself?

    Anni: Should I start calling you dad? Daddy.. daddy-o? I mean we were practically family for a couple hours. You don’t hurt your family, right.
    … Let me go ge that key now *backs away*

    • SofiaT

      Hahaha! 😀

      Btw, I can’t be the only one who thinks that while Laampros is impressed with Kyle, he sees him more as a tool for his purposes than a long-lost son, right? I read glee in this page, not paternal affection. Although he does seem quite proud of him -the way you’re proud of any prized possession.

      I don’t think he cares much for Duncan and the way he used Kyle but that’s because he considers Kyle his to use.

      • That’s how I’ve read it too.
        Kyle has shown that he’s stronger than expected, and strenght is something Laampros like.

      • I’m thinking it maybe something along the line of… Well I guess tool works. I was thinking someone he could train up. But that kiss looks a bit affectionate.

        • SofiaT

          …or he’s playing with Kyle the way he played with Duncan earlier.

          There’s no way he doesn’t realise Kyle is mortified. The revelation on the last panel seems a bit gleeful in a mean kinda way. But then again, it could be those sharp teeth giving me that impression.

          • It’s hard to say because he is a big ol’ demon. There are preconceptions and such. He does seem gleeful, but it could be because he has a strong fine son to mold.
            So of course I must now ask: Is it Saturday yet?

          • SofiaT

            What happened to that 4-day week we were lobbying for?? Saturday-Sunday-Wed/day-Friday. It sounded prefect to me.

          • I don’t know. But it needs to happen stat!

      • Holly

        I think he views Kyle as a son, more than a tool. But a son in the old sense. An heir, someone to mold to take his place someday, etc. As much as I joke about it, I don’t think he wants to take Kyle to the park so he can push him on the swings.

        I do see him wanting to mold the boy into an heir, versus just a tool.

        • SofiaT

          I agree, that’s very close to what I had in mind. I just thought the word “tool” was broad enough to cover it all -but your way of articulating it is much more clear 🙂

    • Sapfo

      Danish at work 🙂

      You remember sharing the Sandra Hill youtube clip. I can not get the word “meatwand” out of my head.
      Thought you might like this list of words Used to Describe Genitals

      http://wtffanfiction.com/post/21958712617/genitals

      • Haha! I had to stop reading or I was going to hurt myself!

      • LMAO.. I had to go to the toilet in the middle of reading that list, to prevent peeing in my pants.

        Someone should get the ‘meatwand’ added to that list. I need to find that clip again. It can not be shared enough – to get a good laugh, and to show what should NOT be considered good writing.

        • Sapfo
          • Thank you. I was just about to link it myself 🙂

            Dick Parkinsons still has to be one of the most original way I’ve ever heard a man’s orgasm described.

            I really hope she wrote this BEFORE she turned into a prize winning author. Otherwise I don’t know what to say. On the other hand it tells something that 50 Shades is getting a movie.
            – Bonus info: where some has complained that it would probably be rated PG-17 or R-rated, because ‘It’s not porn and it would limit some from seeing it’. *Mmmhmm*.. suure.

          • Sapfo

            That is a movie I would gladly miss.
            But they are having trouble finding actors to fill the roles. I am kind of hoping that it will be stuck in pre-making so long it will no longer be interested for Hollywood to make it.

            One of my friends read it and Liked it! o.O

      I dunno. Don’t think boning someone makes you family, there’s usually some sort of commitment involved before that point….

    • Steven K.

      Yeah – if Duncan had played things differently, he could have had Laampros for a father-in-law.

      • dereule101

        Shoulda woulda coulda!

  • Calahara

    Could the eyeball be his mother? Could that be the good inside him? His mother probably sent him away because she thought hell is no place for a boy to grow up. And I really wonder what Laampros real intentions are with the earth. Or whether Kyle has to face his own father in a duel. Reminds me of Avatar: the legend of the last airbender.

    • Miss Quinn

      Maybe he’s like Raven from the teen titans. human mother, demon father…
      Now that you mention in, Anni reminds me a bit of deathstroke, with his smug assholery.

      • Livia

        I agree with miss Quinn. I love watching teen titans n raven is my fave. Besides if the eyeball is Kyle mother wouldnt he be born looking gross (mixture of devil n eyeball) eww. I like him in demi-god (Maybe) form.

        • Miss Quinn

          Well, it makes sense. If his mother was mortal, maybe she ran away with him, or maybe she didn’t have a choice in his conception. Either way, like Raven, I think he probably takes after his mother, or has another form, that closer resembles his father. I just think the eyeball is the effed up Hellverse version of the moon/sun.

    • Miss Quinn

      How? Aang was the one that finished Zuuko’s father. And nobody was the hellspawn of a giant red horned humanoid, or an eyeball.

      • Calahara

        The part where Zuuko faces his father in an aknikai. How he got his scar. And Zuuko is a fire bender. And the fire lord was pretty evil, wanting to burn the ground and turn it into ash. This situation here just reminds me a bit of it and I kinda love avatar and this comic.

        • Miss Quinn

          I suppose. Does this mean Kyle might have a batshit crazy sister hiding somewhere? I’ve always wondered what happened to Azula after the show ended. Did Aang take away her bending? Did they lock her up in a dungeon somewhere?

          • Calahara

            Don’t know :S But what I do know is that the last airbender has a manga and that story goes beyond the ending of the series.

          • Miss Quinn

            WHERE?!

          • Calahara

            Well… it is on the internet in illegal form somewhere. (You don’t have this information from me, if fact, I never even typed this.) There is the ‘book’ called The Search (ironic) and The Promise, also, one that hasn’t been out yet is The Rift. http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Avatar:_The_Last_Airbender_comics
            That should help you with all the information.
            The parts are buy-able. They are all on Amazon I think. (Otherwise the publishers wouldn’t be very smart.)

          • those are good questions…i’m following Korra right now and so far i don’t Azula has come up much…honestly though i try to give some space to that series because they really matured the entire show upwards in terms of theoretical target audience age as the subject matter is most definitely adult-like in the sense that the characters…particularly Korra have to…umm…deal with stupid shit like establish herself as equal individual in terms of authority and responsibility to like fucking everyone because the cool thing is that pretty much nobody gives a shit that she’s the Avatar, like really, people don’t really care that much…I mean they’re like “oh cool, you’re Korra okay. nice to meet you Avatar Korra.” but it’s like yeah everyone grew up or something like she has to work even harder to establish her position…

            ….i keep wondering WHY NOT MAKE KATARA AN AVATAR TOO HUH!?!

            but whatever…also…there was more but once again my train has gone off the tracks into a fiery conflagration in the meadow below…oh well…

  • Sethy

    I could appreciate this plot twist a little more if Kyle WASN’T. STILL. NAKED.
    Awk.. ward

    • Sethy

      Actually it’d still be awkward even if Kyle WAS wearing clothes.

      Someone get Laampros in touch with The Hulk’s pants guy.

        Agree with this post and your previous one above.

        (I will open the chatroom by 6 or 7)

  • I know Laampros probably means the son-comment pretty literal, but there’s this part of me that’s still hoping it’s not so literal.

    That part wanting it to be more a ‘Heey, you’re strong. I like you, you were served to me on a silver platter (in this case stone). You have powers that is within my elemant of creation and I need a prince for my new world. Consider yourself to be adopted, kid.’

    • The thought did cross my mind.

    • Emiko

      That’s totally how i read it at first too :3 and then I saw all the comments, haha.

    • gentlechaos

      Huh? To be honest I never thought he meant it literally until i read alex’ comment… are you sure laampy means it like that?

  • vessto

    Anni is fooled.XD It is mostly sure Mr. L agreed to this meeting that to get closer to his (possible) son. I love how the Red Hot turns Anni on his finger.

    Go with it Kyle! Be the prince of all that is evil and wrong (and sexy) so you can gather some trust and bring yer Pa down from the inside!

  • Ayella

    At least he didn’t chop off Kyle’s hand.

    • Soubi

      Yet

      • Ayella

        Sssst. Don’t give him any more nasty ideas.

        • Soubi

          Oooh, gurl. No one saw that.

        • Garnasha

          “More” nasty ideas? He hasn’t done anything yet… Well, sealed a deal (and ok, he was nasty to Anni about it, but it’s not like Anni is innocent), but he hinted that he did not do so for the reasons Anni or we might think. And he freaks Kyle out, but not necessarily maliciously.

          Could Laampros actually be “alien” rather than “evil” in his way of thinking and acting? Literally playing the devil’s advocate here, but hey, nice thought experiment.

          • Ayella

            Well, I would consider buying the good part of Earth for the price of two people’s immortality a teeny weeny bit nasty. And feeling up a tied up naked boy – who also happens to be his son (if we should take his words literally, which I’m betting on) – also a tiny bit on the evilish side.
            But hey, I do believe everyone has a right to an advocate and I do like your way of not judging a book by it’s crimson, horned and fiery cover, so I am impressed by your thought experiment.

          • Garnasha

            But that’s just it: he hasn’t bought the earth, he bought passage. Anni is the one saying Laamp would want to conquer it, an Laamp tells him off for understanding nothing. Sure, Anni might misunderstand why Laamp wants the earth, but he might misunderstand why he wants passage by thinking it’s to have the earth at all.

            As for the feeling up, it doesn’t necessarily look sexual. He mostly looks like he’s inspecting Kyle, and doesn’t care about his nudity or feelings. But that’s an alien mindset, not necessarily indicative of evil. Admittedly, it certainly rules out being a nice person. But he might have a decidedly non-human value system which isn’t strictly evil, just weird. Or be a conventional jerk, but not bent on world domination/damnation.

          • Steven K.

            Good points.

          • Adam Black

            Really good points.

            Its a Big Universe. Duncan is small minded earth chauvinist

          • Ayella

            Love your way of thinking! It would be one hell of a plot twist.

          • Steven K.

            “And he freaks Kyle out, but not necessarily maliciously”. Yeah – agree with that.

  • AnSpideogDhubh .

    The art on the middle panel is lovely.

    I’m taking Laampros’ statement as literal, as it seems to be one of the ways Kyle’s powers can be explained. We know they’re not magical (conventional magic at least) or “scientific” in origin, so one of the alternatives left is that they are “natural”, that is, part of what type of being he is. Although I’m not sure if Kyle is literally half-demon physically.

  • Soubi

    Awh, fuck. Shit’s about to get real. Hide yo wife, hide yo kids…get Kyle the beck outta there!

    • Soubi

      WARNING: This page (may) contain(s) a whole ocean of nope. This has been a public service announcement from your favorite naked Hell Lord Laampurru-kun

      • Cydney Sabin

        Personally, I think he’d rather refer to himself as -sama.

        • Soubi

          Or -dono, even. Laampurru-dono…maybe he’d force Kyle to call him that -dies a little more on the inside-

      • Niggle

        I’m getting too much fun out of saying Laampuruu-kun. XD

        • Soubi

          I can’t take him seriously anymore. I just imagine him with unnecessary pink blushing cheeks in a Japanese schoolgirl uniform.

  • Holy fuck! shit isn’t enough… Oh Hell… sorry Here’s .. Prince of hell?! ?!

    Well at least they don’t sexual things,right? OMG! I just imagined somethings! My eyes! Damn my brain!’!

  • john Johnson

    Prince of hell?
    Didn’t see that coming.
    One more reason for Daddy to break his deal with the Destroyer. Or, maybe, a reason to keep it. Did the sorceress know? If so, what does that mean?
    And since I doubt the Destroyer can read the glyphs on his arm what codicils are hidden in them that he DOESN’T know he was agreeing to?

  • Jordan

    Kyle’s expression in panels 3 and 4 though…
    Panel 3: …what thE FUCK?!
    Panel 4: AHHHHHHHHH

  • A thought. Do you suppose Laampy gave Kyle some sort of mojo with that kiss?

    • SofiaT

      Mmmm…

      I’d worry more if it was on the mouth -he could have breathed something nasty into him… on the forehead, something like Cain’s mark would be possible though I suppose.

      • It was just a thought I had as I was shutting down last night.

        • SofiaT

          I get my weirdest thoughts/theories when I have just woken up. 😀

  • Amanda

    “UGH, Dad! You’re so gross!”

  • DarkFeanix21

    :O
    Did not see that coming at all. I should be used to that by now, considering some of the twists this chapter has taken, but it still manages to surprise me.

  • Sofia Rodrigues

    I can only think of…’Wut?’ o_o

  • O_O

  • warwriter

    CALLED IT!

  • Cydney Sabin

    I totally saw that coming. And yet all I can think of is Vader’s introduction scene when he yells “NOOOOOOOOOO!”

  • Eve

    Yes! It makes so much sense now why they chose Kyle to open the gate and how Big Red got there so fast. The emotion on Kyle’s face is heartbreaking.

  • xLizardx

    Alex…. seriously…. best quote timing EVER 😀

  • Lady_Hiroko

    One word……CREEPY! Though I’d cry too if I had a demon kiss me and insisted that I called him “Daddy”.

    Cydney: I thought the same thing. XD

  • Cman65

    Ok Dad can I have Australia and NZ for my brithday??

  • amanda

    HOLY SHIT I KNEW IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thomas David Hamilton

    Saturday can’t get here fast enough……like WOW!

  • Brennub

    D:
    Just… just whoa.
    I toyed with this idea, but I never actually thought…….*speechless*

  • Simba Hutchison

    Yay! 🙂 I know, I’m a bit of a sadist, but this plot twist is AWESOME. No wonder Laampy seemed all sensual at Kyle without pulling the I do what I want card, he reminds him of a time he got it on. :3 (Plus manipulating Duncan) Of course, if Duncan knew they were related from the blood test, why was he worried in the first place? Maybe he wasn’t being protective at all, maybe he was squicked by the idea of incest… Shoot.
    Further, I’m having trouble deciding if Laampy is being affectionate to Kyle because he actually is the proud and loving father type… (doubtful, but still possible) or if he’s trying to rile up Kyle – push him to the dark side with fear and hate, if I can borrow the ongoing SW metaphor. I can only see that backfiring on Laampy, though, Kyle seems like a pretty stubborn kid.
    I dunno. I’m rambling now. :3

  • fujoshifanatic

    Oh snap! This is some “Luke, I am your father,” craziness! Now I desperately want to know who was crazy/suicidal/badass enough to get with Laampros to produce poor Kyle. Speaking of poor Kyle, can this date night/birthday get any worse for him? Too bad he doesn’t have Fluke’s powers; he would be damn near invincible right now with all the bad things that have happened to him tonight. His “conquering evil” arc will have to be of epic proportions to overcome the flaming crap that has been flung his way so far. Hang in there Kyle! Maybe Anni will get over the shock of being burned and branded and lend an (undamaged) hand to help you out. :-

    • Steven K.

      Very good points!

  • WarGoddess

    Holy canoles I knew this might happen but I was still unprepared for it. What bad luck for Kyle! Laampros, on the other hand, looks as though Christmas has come early for him. I mean, it’s not everyday that your son is used sexually by an older supervillain in order to gain access to your hellish realm.

    Oh, and I just realized, the first thing that comes out of Kyle’s mouth in the beginning of the comic is “Oh, to hell with it!” Well, Kyle, it looks like you unintentionally wished yourself to hell, man. You’d better be more careful about what you say from now on. 😀

    • Steven K.

      Wow – craftiest bit of foreshadowing ever.

  • Wim ten Brink

    Laampros is just fooling around, of course. He’s a Demon and Demons will tell lies. Then again, Demons are derived from Angels, who have fallen down. If Laampros is really Kyle’s father then Kyle would technically be half an Angel. He just needs wings and a round thingie above his head, with a bit of additional training. Once he had those, I bet he would kick Laampros arse… 🙂

    • Livia

      Nice theory tho i prefer the son part n the devil part. (Sadist that way.)

    • Steven K.

      A halo-thingy?

      • Adam Black

        halo-thingsmushy

  • Raven R. Bloodwolf

    To be honest, I think Laampros is just saying that because he feels
    the energy thats within Kyle. Kyle’s element is fire, a strong, yet
    unpredictable element that has no real level of power. Kyle could be a
    great and feared villain if he wanted to be. Laampros must sense the
    inner destructive powers within him and wants to corrupt him to become
    the prince of hell. Then again, this is all theory.

    • I just woke up so I haven’t caught up on all the comments since I went to bed, so this may not be the first post like this, but the first I have seen.

      I completely agree. I am not sure if everyone is just speculating on daddy Laampros being literal just because it is fun or because they actually think it is possible in some way. I never took it as literal. More like, “You impress me, you have power over fire, I am the king of hell, I make you my son”

      • Raven R. Bloodwolf

        Agree. Its more of a desire for power than biological confessions. Laampros will try to corrupt Kyle or destroy him because he is too powerful. Either way the story is getting very interesting.

  • Livia

    Holy Crap!! …… Oh great.. I think Alex just fry my brain. (Mind going: WTF!!!)

  • MCSC

    I don’t expect Kyle to be the big whiney-baby Luke was. Hey… Wait a minute! Kyle and Luke share THREE letters in their names. WE should have KNOWN this would happen!

  • I knew it!!!!!!!!

  • purplefoxglove

    Next page – Laampros: “Just kidding.”

    Seriously, this page left me literally like this O.o It’s not so much the fact that Kyle is a half-demon, but Laampros’ sudden parental behaviour. He is scaring me more acting like Hell’s Daddy No 1 than when he was doing business with Duncan.

    Sooooo, if Kyle is partly Demon, and the Platinum Priestess was able to figure that out by sampling his aura or energy, that means there is something noticeably unusual about it. Both Spooky and the Commander have some sort of psychic power – she’s a telepath, he was able to detect the life force of the people trapped in the burning building in chapter one. Spooky is also able to summon demons; he knows how they “feel”.
    Shouldn’t one of them have noticed? Did they know, but kept quiet about it and an eye out for Kyle, giving him a chance to prove himself? Did they think it was some sort of ordinary magic? Does demonic magic not classify as dangerous? Or are the differences so subtle, you only detect them if you search for them like the PP did?
    If so, how did Duncan take notice? He was the one who suspected what Kyle might be, if I read this http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/archive/ete-ch1-page-20/ correctly. I’d rather expect Kyle’s close friends and colleagues to pick up on his unusualness than The Most Powerful And Feared Supervillian On The Planet…after all, what interest could he have in a group of underage Heroes? Or did Team Silver somehow know that Laampros had a son, and was searching for someone who fits the bill? Were they explicitly looking for Laampros’ child, or would anyone with demonic heritage have been convenient? Was Kyle a planned child, and if so, what were Laampros’ plans with him – and what are they now?
    OK, I have to stop now, my mind gets more and more confused and I’m coming up with increasingly odd and rambling ideas. Mission accomplished?

    • Rae Goldberg

      I’m with you on this man… so many possibilities so little mental capacity… I got a migraine trying to figure out where this ship is sailing… I think I’m a little seasick too… -.- lol

      • purplefoxglove

        Woman 🙂
        I came up with another thought: Is Kyle the only child of Laampros? The demon does not seem to be surprised to have a son dropping in…there might be more around! O.o

        • Rae Goldberg

          *flails* OH GOD!!! Don’t say that!!! Kyle might have some siblings running amok?! The Poor Boy has enough developing complexes to worry about… Having siblings who could or could not be bad guys is not something this kid needs right now!!!

    • motordog

      This is one reason why I think mom may be an angel. The pure evil mixed with the pure good sort of metaphysically cancels each other out. I imagine half-demon people wouldn’t be that uncommon through history (Laampros CAN’T be the first demon to try this), so it wouldn’t make sense that PP said Kyle’s powers/aura/whatever were somehow unknown to her. But…I can’t imagine demon/angel babies are that common…so Kyle could be unique in that regard. That would also help explain why Kyle isn’t naturally inclined to evil himself, despite his abandonment and early tragedies in his life.

      Of course, I am making quite a few assumptions here about Alex’s comic universe, so I could be totally wrong (and wouldn’t be too surprised if I was).

      • I know people keep saying Diablo has no Story, but actually, in Blizzards Diablo universe, humanity is such an angel/demon hybrid, with their powers dampened by the worldstone – until it gets destroyed. So no, that mix isn’t uncommon in fiction…

        besides that: Interesting version of the Darth Vader maneuver…

        • Jamie Dutton

          I myself referenced “Little Nicky” last night, so it’s not uncommon in fiction. I think motordog and purplefoxglove were wondering how common it is in TYP’s universe. At least that’s what I got out of their comments.

          • motordog

            You are correct, Jamie. I’ve heard this particular mix (demon/angel) more than once…for example, the comic “Preacher” had it as well. But usually (Diablo not withstanding) even when it is referenced in a story, it’s typically pointed out as a very rare or unique occurrence.

            Hey, for all I know, angel/demon hybrids may be extremely common in Alex’s universe. Actually, that would be an unusual and interesting way to explain who has superpowers in a particular world…they all had one demonic and one angelic parent. It would make the whole Heaven/Hell war thing interesting, too.

    • 1stworlder

      If he didn’t know himself telepathy wouldn’t help. If he is not full demon he would have had to hit spooky with fire or be subject to one if his spells for him to get a feel for it. Duncan knows the names and addresses of all the underage hero’s so he obviously did some legwork. Keep in mind this most powerful superhero wasn’t accepted as a junior member anywhere else, while spooky had many offers at first I thought it was just affirmative action.

      • motordog

        I assumed it was because Spooky had very versatile powers that he clearly had well under control…assuming he had some kind of magical teacher (his own Dumbledore, if you will), he may even have had some kind of references (“Yes, please take my student, he’s very good and got all high marks.”).

        Kyle’s powers were more untested, more “one note” (fire), and (outside of putting out other fires) had a greater potential for collateral damage.

  • SpookyDomme

    That was…oddly sweet. If also terrifying and chock-full of “WHAT.”
    Seriously, this is so much crazy for Kyle in one day. Poor baby.

    • motordog

      -Laampros incinerates several army regiments, explodes some jet fighters, then gives Kyle a big hug.

      “DAAAAD! You’re EMBARRASSING me!”

      • Livia

        That will be a sit-com. And I think will Kyle will go bonkers if he stay there any longer. It’s too much in one night. Getting betrayed by an old straight guy on a birthday/date. Being used for a portal, chained naked!!!

        And the highlight of the day: “I AM YOUR FATHER.” Can anybody stay saint if it happens to them?

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          This is what Alex said on the comments on Page 31:

          I’m writing stories with heroes who happen to be gay and supervillains
          who happen to be gay. The Annihilator is no more supposed to represent
          my views on older gay men in general than Maven from Artifice is meant to express my views of the psychiatric profession….”

          That seems to indicate that Duncan is gay too.

  • motordog

      Probably the bigger shock is that he’s not as well built as his dad

      • Valja

        Ahahah you’re right, but who knows, Kyle’s still young… maybe after some decades Kyle could become big giant and with his hair constantly on fire.

        • dereule101

          I’m guessing Kyle would prefer to just get wrinkles and ear hair like everyone else, lol.

      • Steven K.

        Yeah – the way Kyle ducked under the covers in such a hurry after he undressed tells me he’s rather shy, and I don’t think he would have been quite so shy if he had an endowment that reflected his parentage.

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          Well, it was his first time. I think endowment or not, he would have been somewhat shy.

  • SofiaT

    Hi Sabrina!

    Alex Woolfson is the writer of this story -and I agree with you, he’s doing a fantastic job with it! 🙂

    About the release date of TYP in print, the first chapter and the first interlude had a successful Kickstarter campaign last June. So they are getting printed soon in Vol.1 of The Young Protectors! YAY!!

    Of course, those who backed the Kickstarter will be the first ones to get the printed edition (lucky bastards!). The estimated delivery is March-April 2014 for them. For the rest of us common mortals, Vol. 1 of TYP should be available sometime next summer. In the meantime though, you can get keychains, prints and other goodies from both TYP and Alex’s other graphic novel, Artifice, from his online store: http://store.yaoi911.com/

    Artifice is already available as a beaufiful paperback btw, printed in great quality glossy paper. I know that for a fact ’cause I got two, one for me and one to gift. 😀

    In total, TYP will be 5 chapters long, along with whatever interludes Alex plans to include. They will all eventually be printed; and I can’t wait for the Kickstarter for Vol 2 to be honest!

  • Heh

    I think so too, Matt. That would explain it all.

    I just hope it wasn’t some evil dark supervillain, for that could be a possibility as well. Let me just hang on the hope that at least one of kyle’s parents was good – natured.

    Damm this story never fails to amaze me.

  • Lunam_Kardas

    Okay so what you’re telling me is that Anni broke the heart of superhero who’s flames can actually hurt him…. and happens to be this HUGE evil (Kinda sexy) demon’s beloved offspring?

    Oh yeah, no possible way that’s gonna come back to bite him in the ass.

  • Kalynn Osburn

    I would like to beg and plead for this to be sold on Kindle.

    • SofiaT

      Artifice is, so I imagine TYP will be too, in time.

      When that time is gonna by is the issue here of course *sigh*

  • SofiaT

    Hi Galopa!

    Alex has said that there is never going to be explicit sex in his stories.

    I’m personally more than ok with it but I know a lot of people expect sex in a yaoi story so I’m sorry if you’re disappointed. 🙁

    You can read more about Alex’s views on the matter here, along with some suggestions for where you can find some good yaoi stories with explicit guy-on-guy sex: http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/faq/

    Another thought: is it mere coincidence that Kyle meets his father on his birthday? We can infer that Kyle’s half-demon nature was essential to crossing the barrier between worlds, but perhaps it was his father-son connection to Laampros that was even more important.

    • b3nc0

      When Laampy talked (page 36) about the last time he enjoyed mortal pleasures being far too long, is 18 years, really /that/ long on a demoniac life scale?

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        For someone like Laampros, who is probably immortal, a long time would probably mean thousands of years. At least a few hundred.

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        Also on Page 36, Laampros says: “mortal pleasure. If Kyle’s mother was not mortal, but let’s say an angel, then it probably doesn’t count.

        • dereule101

          There’s also the possibility of non-coital reproduction like parthenogenesis or whatever it was that God did to Mary – no mortal pleasure involved in those methods.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Yes, exactly. Physical sex may have not been necessary.

          • Steven K.

            Def. a possibility to remember.

        • Valja

          If Kyle’s mother was really mortal, then I can’t see how she could have done it with Laampros. I mean… Laampros. He’s big. VERY big. And if it’s all proportionate… *coff!*
          How can I say, he would have… torn her apart?

          • 1stworlder

            I guess you have never had straight friends take you to Tijuana while you where in the closet. Mexico has more woman & male donkey shows than libraries+bookstores.

          • Valja

            Uhm… I’ve never been to Mexico, and I’m not sure if I really wanted to know about this, but thanks for the info anyway…

          • Feverfew_M

            Great, you just made me remember the donkey scene in Clerks 2. Where’s the brain-bleach? XD

          • 1stworlder

            I was working a 13week renewable contract near the border and it wasn’t worth coming out of the closet, to avoid going out with them on payday.

          • dereule101

            Well, I’m not completely discounting it. He could also have changed shapes. There’s just so much to speculate about until we find out for sure. 🙂

      • Some one mentioned a time difference between the mortal plane and the hell plane, so maybe 18 years in the mortal plane is 1000 years in the hell plane.. I can’t remember who said it, otherwise I would give credit.

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        18 years to us may translate to something over 1000 years in the realm of Laampros.

    • Steven K.

      Could well be.

  • Kore88

    I feel like I should have seen that coming!

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      A lot of people thought that he might have something to do with demons. On Chapter One, page 20, Sircea tells Duncan: “But he’s not a mutant, there’s no alien DNA and certainly no conventional magic.”
      That doesn’t leave too many choices.

  • WarGoddess

    I think it would be hilarious if Duncan had deduced the fact that Kyle is part demon, and therefore used him to gain access to the demonic realm, but didn’t know who Kyle’s daddy actually was. I would love it if on the next page, Duncan looks just as shocked as Kyle, while Laampros explains the circumstances behind Kyle’s birth. Seeing Duncan go all like, “WTF?!” at Laampros’ revelation would make my day. XD

    • Suhndog

      Luke, I’m your father… [eeks!]

    • Valja

      I agree with everything you said 🙂 Even about the Blue Exorcist reference… now that you mention it, probably Kyle’s flames had something in them that made’em recognizable as similar to a demon’s power, and that’s why Duncan thought of using him.
      Sadly for Anni, Kyle’s flames weren’t as obvious as Rin’s, and the thought that Kyle could be the son of the Big Red One didn’t cross his mind…

    • Maybe Laampy didn’t care so much if Kyle was his son until Kyle proved his strength. Maybe he has so many offspring only a strong one would gain any notice.

      • WarGoddess

        Maybe, but he did say it had been a long time since he’d experienced mortal pleasures. Maybe that long while was about 18 years? And the Laampros/angel thing that others have said sounds plausible, but it could also be another Blue Exorcist-similar thing, where Laampros actually found a human female that could withstand his affections. In Blue Exorcist, Rin and Yukio’s mother was the only material in Assiah (our realm) that he could touch/possess without destroying her. (This was according to the anime, btw.) I mean, this would explain why Kyle is mostly human. I don’t really think a union between a demon and an angel would produce a mortal without some human in the mixture. 😀

        • Valja

          Yeah, but there Satan possessed a human body… And the main issue was that there weren’t many humans with a body capable of withstanding his power (if I remember correctly).
          Here I don’t think Laampros need a human body to enter our world, only a way to reach it… I’m not so convinced about the mother being exactly an “angel”, but maybe another race, or a human with a particular super power who could make her survive a demon’s energy… or maybe she was a sorceress/priestess like Sircea…
          The idea of Laampy spreading his semen here and there like the rice at some weddings isn’t that bad. If you’ve always wanted to take over the Earth, then an army of offsprings ready to follow you would be useful. And you could always make them fight with each other to know who’s the strongest one – that’s if you’re also slightly sadic, I mean.

          • WarGoddess

            Laampros: Hey, kids, I’m gonna have you guys fight to the death and whoever wins will get a nice icecream cone from daddy! …Well, granted, it may turn into hot chocolate because of the fire everywhere, but it’s still good! XD

          • Valja

            LOL who in the world isn’t fond of melted ice cream?? xD
            By the way, I just remembered that a similar scene was shown in the earliest seasons of Supernatural… There was a yellow-eyed demon who made tainted-with-demonic-blood-at-birth humans fight with each other to elect the general of his armies on Earth. I guess our idea isn’t that original, then. *sigh*

            Edit: I LOVE things about demons and supernatural themes, in case that wasn’t clear enough 😉

        • Well if we go with the notion of a time difference between the planes.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            We might have a better idea when they get back how much time has passed.

          • That’s true.

            Are we there yet?

          • WarGoddess

            I hope we get there soon, I am sooooo impatient!
            Are we there yet?
            Are we there yet?
            Are we there yet?

            …I apologize. 😀

          • Ha! I’ll try to keep from kicking the back of your chair in my impatience. 🙂

          • motordog

            Grats on the moderatorship, Admiral!

          • Why thank you, kind sir! I promise not to let the power go to my head. 🙂

      • 1stworlder

        R style evolution have lots of low quality offspring in hopes a few will stand out and be successful.

  • Amy

    Kyle: “Just great. I’m screwed! I’ll definitely make Duncan bald with my power.”

  • Valja

    OMG I thought about it but I seriously didn’t believe it to be actually TRUE!!! Oh my! Oh my!! I just… just… LOVE IT!!
    Ok, I know, it’s a shock for poor Kyle but… as a huge Star Wars fan I’m totally excited about this twist!! I… seriously, it’s too soon for me to say anything apart from disconnected sounds with a huge smile on my face.
    Just because I LOVE drama 😉

    • Jamie Dutton

      Love your first edit there! Yep ol’ Dunks went and messed up big time!

    • Steven K.

      Really dig the two points you made in your two “edits”!!

  • Suhndog

    Notice that in the 3rd. panel, Kyle is not responding by turning his head away, or trying to avoid contact somehow.. his expression is almost one of ‘wanting/needing’ comfort..
    Also, his expression in the last panel seems to be both a realization ‘of something’ – maybe wrongly so; mixed with confusion and a bit of dis-belief..

    I love the way these endless cliff-hangers keep drawing me in..

  • SofiaT
    • That’s awesome!

    • dereule101

      I just read that, too! Another of many reasons why I would move to Sweden.

      • 1stworlder

        I guess all the muslim rapes, and gay bashings in Sweden since they had open borders and muslims consider welfare to be the jihad seekers tax isn’t covered by your news. While drama queens pour out Russian vodka over a law that doesn’t affect consenting adults, they pretend they drink more vodka than consume petrol power from lands that behead gays.

        • I can sense that you are making some larger points, 1stworlder, that I don’t think are intended to be putting down any particular class of people, including adherents to Islam or Swedes, but let’s keep an eye on the provocative rhetoric. Even when discussing emotionally charged issues, please keep in mind the “tone of respect” for other commenters that is the foundation of my comment policy.

          And now, I’m officially asking everyone to bow gently to one another, step back from this thread and move on. Thank you.

          • 1stworlder

            Telling the truth is putting muslims down. London used to be the freest gay city in the world and now there are no go zones even the cops wont go in. If you look at what was reported as a Nazi march by the EDL protesting the beheading of a British soldier in London, you will see a gay flag about a min after the start. Those are gays that had to get beaten up to see muslims are 100x worse than the westboro Baptist church, ask any “moderate” muslim if he wants sharia law imposed(that means killing gays). A Syrian Christian who taught my sister and I how to swim explained the middle east when I asked as, muslims are allowed to lie even under oath, even muslims who use their hands as toilet paper consider themselves superior(as in supremacist) to men who walked on the moon, and their version of jesus’s greatest victory came from breaking a peace treaty with a city in the middle of the night.

          • 1stworlder

            While you might be mistaken to thinking muslims are OK with gays due to the Suadi man who raped a 13yo boy in Las Vegas, sharia law actually covers that. Adult men who say they love adult men are to be put do death, as happens in muslim nations. But if you watch the documentary on youtube “Dancing boys of Afghanistan” You will see its ok under Islamic law for men to have sex with boys that doesn’t have body hair yet, just like it is ok to have sex with girls as young as Moo Ham Mads youngest wife who was 6yo. A male nurse in Kuwait was thrown in jail for drinking bottled water during Ramadan., and if the US didn’t put Kuwait back on the map if would have been safe for gays & foreigners drinking water under Sadam.

    …I…was so not expecting that. AWESOME. I love these kinds of twists!

  • La Belle Gigi

    Well, that escalated quickly.

    Shades of Vader/Luke… is Duncan the anti-Obi-Wan?

  • Jakk Anthony Guzman

    If Kyle is not altogether human, he might not age as quickly. That means that he would not only need someone who is fire-proof but can live a long time as well. Do we know someone like that?

    • Steven K.

      Well, he seems to be aging at a normal rate so far. Though that could slow down eventually.

  • KNT609

    Nope. Didn’t see that coming

  • Steel_Man

    I’m sure its too much to hope that Kyle turns into a dark – older – demon with his own hellish horns and desire to conquer and enslave…right? Also, this changes the dynamics of the Annihilator’s reasons for bringing Kyle here. It makes him far more manipulative and self-serving. I like that!

  • Jamie Dutton

    Well, Papa said “a Prince of Hell” Does that mean he has siblings?

  • Niggle

    Sadly I was not able to comment when I read this in the morning, but I will relate my reaction. I cackled and jumped out of my chair laughing.

    I actually did not see that coming. That Kyle might be part demon has been suggested, but that he’s Lampy offspring, nope nope. I feel bad at being excited by this turn of events because it’s horrible for Kyle. Not just that Annie is using him to doing horrible things to the entire planet, but that he’s related to a demon, that particular demon and that he is expecting him to be a servant in his cause. The guilt PLUS the identity crisis he might soon be suffering. So very D8

    Panel three is awesome. Lampy’s tender kiss, he almost looks kind. And add to that Kyle’s expression, just wow. Given Annie’s concern and fear about Lampy’s interest in Kyle it makes one wonder if he even know about Kyle’s parentage.

    • Steven K.

      Great post – I share your sentiments.

      No? I’m the only one? Ok >_>

      • Thanatopia

        I don’t play WoW, but if they’re the local tricksters, I can believe it. 🙂

        • They truly are. They also have an attack called Misdirect. 😛

          • Thanatopia

            Then you have called it well!

          • Yes, sir. Internet high five? Pound it, my dog. o.o

            (I work with the most dead pan nerdy white guy and this is how he speaks irl. It is rubbing off.)

          • Thanatopia

            High five and fist-bump for good measure. 🙂

          • Success! *fist bump*

      • Valja

        I’m referring to other mmorpgs since I don’t play WoW, but I thought he could be more the caster type… even when you can see it coming cause he doesn’t strike his blow from the shadow, his power is so strong that it leaves us stunned and shocked for a while and with last-longing side effects (such as, being frozen, or feeling incredibly on fire during the smexy scenes…)

        • In WoW terms, I think he might either be a Mage or a Hunter. Both are ranged and are powerful masters of disruption and stealth.

          • Valja

            Mmmhhh…I’ll consider playing with a Hunter, if I ever try WoW again (I played it years ago, but I was still kind of young and inexperienced regarding online games, my english sucked even more than now and I was the only one playing it among my acquaintances. All these combined, they were kind of a deterrent. I recently moved to other mmorpgs and never tried it again *sigh*)

          • If you ever do play, let me know and I’ll help you through leveling! 😀 I love the game and like to level, too, so it would be so much fun.
            Also, you’re English is pretty good.

          • Valja

            Thank you, I’ll keep you in mind 🙂

  • Preludetoa

    C’mon! Really?! His father. MASSIVE eye rolls. I’m hoping this is a major gotcha moment on Laampros’ part.

    • It’s possible that he’s just decided to adopt him, impressed as he was with his strength.

      • I like this theory!

        • There is some sense to it, since I wouldn’t know how Laampy was able to get himself a son in the mortal realm, unless we go with the whole timey wimey theory.

          • There is definitely sense in it, though I like my Nutella/Jack/Laampy theory. It is enjoyable though silly.

          • And tasty.

          • Truly tasty. I only wish I had Nutella at home. I would make crepes.

          • Mmmm, crepes.

          • Valja

            *scrolling down* wha- crepes? Nutella??
            Great. It’s the middle of the night and now I’m hungry.

          • Sorry about that. The other night I was suddenly craving Chinese food. It was rather uncomfortable.

          • Seriously, Nutella crepes with bananas and whipped cream. BEST. SHIT. EVER.
            And now I want them.
            I have none of these things.
            I am now sad.

          • Adam Black

            Adopt me.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Artificial insemination? Maybe Laampros was able to sneak many, many little Laamproses across the walls of blood and pain. 😛

          • This is why I was joking about him being Zeus. 🙂 But the timey wimey solution works as well too.

            Unless Kyle’s mother is angelic etc. It’s possible that she could pass over.

          • That is also another plausible theory, though I don’t know about you, but I am not really attracted to bulging red men. o-o

          • Someone was postulating that Big Red could change form. So maybe he wasn’t so bulging. And for all we know if his mother was angelic, she could be just as huge. If that’s the case, if Kyle is not even mortal, this could be a more pupa form that Kyle’s in

          • That is definitely a possibility. Or perhaps someone summoned him?

          • Or stole him from that realm. Maybe PP stole him and put him into foster care, awaiting the day she could use him for this purpose. But it wasn’t until the last few years that she brought Duncan into it, discovering that the boy was gay.

          • Oh. Oh my god. I love this hypothesis. I love it.

            She watched him become a Young Protector, eyeing his powers and planing for the future. Perhaps she only brought Duncan in on it quite recently. Perhaps Duncan volunteered, in spite of what he said.

          • Well, if say Duncan was sick or if PP was making him weaker, he would probably jump at the plan, all without realizing she was manipulating him for her evil ends.

          • He found out he had a terminal illness and the only way to live was to revert back to a younger Duncan. Or so said PP, who had given him the illness.

          • Exactly, exactly! This is a very interesting concept indeed.

          • I like this concept. I will be perfectly fine with this being cannon.
            And if not, I can always write a little fanfic for Alex and the gang here in the comments.

          • Yes!

          • Steven K.

            That could all make some degree of sense – but still kinda bad form to use your kid like that.

          • She might not hold any relation to him, just stole him for later usage.

          • Steven K.

            Oh – I see what you mean.

          • Steven K.

            Kyle may have been born in the hellish-realm, but then he was left/deposited in the hellish realm when it was seen that he was angelically beautiful – so it wasn’t seen fit to grow up there, since he would look so totally out of place and he’s feel very alone and awkward. Maybe male demons are like seahorses – it’s the males who carry the developing young inside as a “pregnancy” and ultimately give birth to the young. Or, regardless of which plane Kyle was born on/in, if his mother was angelic, maybe it was deemed that it wouldn’t be fair to either aspect of his heritage to be raised in the angelic or demonic realm, so he was sent to the more neutral earth-realm, to discover his inclinations himself. (Although I often think that so many aspects of life here truly do represent a ‘hell -on-earth.)

          • Which goes back to the idea of him being stolen from the realm.

          • Steven K.

            Well, I was thinking more “purposefully deposited” on earth, rather than truly “stolen” from “hell”.

          • I suppose if they maybe deposit all demon/helf-breed youth. Which may be the way it really. Let them grow up unknowing and if they’re strong enough…

          • WarGoddess

            Timey wimey wibbly wobbly…stuff. 😀

          • Very much. I do wonder if someone like Laampy could move through time. That is until he was stuck in that Realm

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        That doesn’t explain Kyle’s powers. Remember what Sircea said: No mutant DNA, no conventional magic, not an alien. So if he’s part demon why not Laampros?

        • That’s true. But it’s a thought. And it would be an interesting conflict for Kyle dealing with a father who is the ultimate bad guy.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            And a lover who betrayed him. And possibly a mother who is an evil sorceress. :-O

          • Valja

            Well that escalated quickly.

          • It keeps us all on our toes for certain, 🙂

          • Steven K.

            Poor Kyle – so much potentially on his not-so-appetizing psychological plate.

          • Steven K.

            That’s for sure.

    • 🙁 I like the idea as an explanation of his origins.
      To each their own.

  • Valja

    You know what I thought?
    By the end of the comic, I’d love to see Duncan, on his knee, again in the presence of Laampros. This time with a basket of flowers (or better, succulent plants since those might have a slight chance to make it throught the day down there).
    Duncan: “Oh Great Laampros, Supreme Lord…”
    Laampros: “Ugh, the little maggot with another bargain, not again…”
    “I’m here now to humbly…..”
    “Yeah, yeah, what now, tired of the American continents? Want the ability to time-travel? Or the power to easily find a taxi in NY at late night? Pretty popular in this years… ”
    “…. ask for you son’s hand, in marriage.”
    ” Or may- WHAT?”
    *Duncan nods solemnly*
    “…. Maggot… you sure you don’t want, you know, that immortality I’d already promised you once?… I swear I’ll give it to you, now. FOR FREE. I swear. Just gtfo, pls”.

    That is, if by the end of the comic Duncan has redeemed himself. If not, then he can just go on slamming his head his head against the wall I’d already mentioned in another post.
    And then Kyle goes with Spooky. Awww, I miss the other Young Protectors, I liked them 😉

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      Up to now Duncan is the only fire-proof guy that Kyle knows, and may be the only one around. If Duncan also becomes young and immortal too, Kyle may not have much of a choice especially if Kyle doesn’t age as fast as humans.

      • Valja

        But I want Kyle to choose Duncan because he wants to, after Anni has proven to be worthy of his love… Not only because there’s no one else inflammable nearby! 😉
        Not to mention that Kyle could learn how to control his flames (I’m sure he can! I have faith in him! xD )… As for Spooly, ok that’s only my curious fantasy (I liked the guy at first glance), but as a “sorcerer” he could find a way to protect himself, even if for a short time…

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          I don’t think that Spooky is gay. He looked very comfortable with his sexuality when they were looking at the gay porn. Also being comfortable with himself, Spooky would have been out if he had been gay.

          • Valja

            *sighs* you’re right, but at least let me dream. I thought that maybe Spooky could be bisexual. One day. *other sighs* Well I suppose I shouldn’t wander too much from the high road of the plot…

          • Steven K.

            “Also being comfortable with himself, Spooky would have been out if he had been gay” – That’s a very interesting and astute observation!

    • Alex said a while back that Spooky likes experienced women 🙂
      I really think he and Kyle are just friends.

      • Valja

        Ahah ok, I missed that one then! 🙂 Has he perhaps openly reassured us that Duncan is gay? Cause you know… everyone here will probably be astonished by what I’m saying, but I’ve got the slight fear that Duncan has been only pretending to be gay, to lure Kyle into his trap. I didn’t quite understand the dialogue when he showed his true colours, before they went to hell… He’s gay, right? I… kinda still want him with Kyle…

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          Yes, Chapter 2, Page 31.

          Alex:

          I’m writing stories with heroes who happen to be gay and supervillains who happen to be gay. The Annihilator is no more supposed to represent my views on older gay men in general than Maven from Artifice is meant to express my views of the psychiatric profession.

          • Valja

            YESSS! xD Thank you so, so, so, so much!! 🙂 I’m feeling much better now!

          • Adam Black

            Im not convinced. There is wiggle room in those statements

          • Steven K.

            Alex doubled-down on that in that “slightly spoilerish” comment he made a while back. He gave a slightly different version of this, saying that he was writing about superheros “(and at least one supervillain)” who just happen to be gay. So unless P.P. really is a lesbian…

          • Adam Black

            that doesnt reveal anything.

            Laampros seems to be disposed to men .

        • Adam Black

          a lot of us suspect that.

      • Well, isn’t Spooks always fighting with Sircea? /Experienced/, huh??? Hmm!

        • Steven K.

          Maybe Duncan and Sircea tried this whole thing once before with Spooky (since he mentions being familiar with here, and not in too positive a manner) – trying to get into hell and all, and trying to take advantage of Spooky’s magical powers in aiding this, and that time it WAS Sircea that tried to do the seduction (if we assume Spooky is straight and is attracted to those kind of women). Maybe they are she weren’t quite so successful as Duncan with Kyle this time – maybe she wasn’t able to get him to have a magical orgasmic ka-boom. If Kyle ever confides in Spooky what happened, Spooky would say – “hey – don’t feel too bad – they tried to do the same thing to me but I couldn’t generate a powerful-enough “explosion”.

      I love the idea (and the visuals in my head) of Kyle with Spooky!

    • Please yes. I would love to see that. I might…
      Fuck.
      You know what you get? You get fan art. Congratulations, I will be drawing this.

      • Valja

        Ahahah wow I inspired someone, I feel honored! xD Can you post it here when you’re done? I’d love to see it (I’m sooo bad ad drawing, I could barely draw a cloud and it would still look like an unidentified stain with a blue background).

        • I will certainly post it here! I will link it. 🙂

    • Tina

      I would love for that to happen but I think Duncan would need a really, really big rock to prove his love for Kyle (in every sense of the word)

  • “Daddy?!
    “Your goatee tickles!!”

    “Quiet, son: I need to put some hair on your chest.
    “(And your hole around my pole.)”

    “!
    “!!
    “Such a vulgar, filthy daddy!
    “I’m calling C.P.S.!!!”

  • Nice avatar! I’m very fond of the eleventh Doctor.

  • Thanatopia

    And now I am imagining Kyle and Laampros having this gigantic heartwarming reunion. Then there’s the awkward “meet the friends” moment where the rest of the Young Protectors recount exaggerated versions of everything embarrassing that happened to him in the last ten years, and Laampros confides that Kyle once had a bed-wetting problem when he was small.

    Kyle brushes off the awkwardness and introduces his dad to thigh-high spike-heeled boots. (They ARE what the best demons are wearing nowadays – just ask Him from the Powerpuffs and Sebastian from Kuro!)

    • I don’t know why this made me laugh so much but it did.

    • Valja

      “Laampros confides that Kyle once had a bed-wetting problem when he was small” this one killed me!! XD

      Also, thank you for causing me inevitable nighmares tonight. You know, Sebastian’s thigh-high spike-heeled boots suit him well (though I don’t think the upper part of the body was shown in the manga), but on Laampros……… aehm. They’ll sure beautify him with a more slender silhouette…?

      *coff* Welcome, nightmares.

    Aaaaand this is why you should make sure of someone’s power source before using them as a material component.

  • Camille Martin

    The whole time Im re reading this over and over Im like. What? What!? WHAAAAAAAAAAAT!? WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTT!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    I swear you should be hearing me in your office by now Alex!

  • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

    My theory is that Kyle is either like Adam from ‘Good Omens’ (Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman) who was meant to be the anti-Christ but grew up to be a “normal” kid. Or Kyle is a demon who couldn’t cut it at being evil and got kicked out of hell (Like Crawly an Angel who did not so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards and got banned from Hell for helping to derail the apocalypse). Kyle’s been on earth for 18 years but really has existed for centuries. Duncan and Sircea might not be sure of the source of his powers and parentage but Kyle could know exactly what and who he is and where he came from.

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      Hmmm, if Kyle got kicked out of Hell for not being evil enough, I’m not sure that Laampros would be so affectionate with him now. He’s still not evil enough.

      • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

        I was thinking along the lines of Loki in the first Thor movie. His father, Laufey, King of the Frost Giants, leaves him outside to die because he’s small and weak and he’s taken in by Odin. Or how Goku is sent to Earth by the Saiyans to toughen up.

      • Steven K.

        Good point – and he was obviously able to get in.

    • Your description of Crawly is possibly the most accurate I have ever read. I appreciate your phrase “Saunter Vaguely Downwards.” It had me laughing.

      • Platos_Redhaired_Stepchild

        I cannot tell a lie, “Sauntered vaguely downwards” comes straight out of the book. I hope dear Kyle will find his Aziraphale.

        • Okay, now I have to re-read “Good Omens.” “Sauntered Vaguely Downwards” seems so @Neilhimself but either of them (or both) could have come up with it.

          • It is a great book, I really enjoyed it. Especially the end. I wound offer to lend you my copy, but I am not entirely sure where it is. But it IS in my house…..somewhere….

  • Lulzlullylulz

    Say what!?

  • Steven K.

    You’d think something like that.

  • Steven K.

    Wow – sexy avatar.

  • Holly

    I swear I just keep reading this page, and loving Laampros more and more. I mean all of the badass things from before are still amazing. I just love how proud, and affectionate he is toward Kyle.

    In my head I can see him backtracking and assuring Kyle that he believes the boy is probably smart as well, he just hasn’t witnessed it yet. But he can see that his son his handsome and strong. So he is quite pleased.

    Oh I can just see him excitedly planning out father-son day together. Trying ti figure out if he should give Kyle Australia or Europe as a gift. Trying to pick out acceptable male concubines.

    “Tomorrow we will work at training your powers, and if you are very good I will take you to an amusement park of some kind. I am told that roller coasters are quite enjoyable.”

    • “But Daaaad, I don’t want to be a prince of hell. I want to be superhero with my friends; save all the cute boys.”

      • Adam Black

        Dad? are you sure?

        • Jakk Anthony Guzman

          Who knows? Laampros is not human. He may be able to take whatever form he wants, and may be able to change his sex at will.

          • Adam Black

            Im not trans, but I would do that If I could change right back.

        • I suppose it could be like in Oglaf, only ever born of men.

          But considering all the focus on that one panel a couple pages back, yeah, I’m pretty sure dad.

          • Adam Black

            totally wrong oglaf trope.
            google : “puzzle vagina”

          • But I like Kronar.

          • Adam Black

            need a man who can jerk with both hands

          • Oh hey, they kept his fingers cut off. I hadn’t noticed that.

          • Adam Black

            did they ?

          • Look at the previous page with him. He’s missing fingers..

          • Adam Black

            live and learn

          • Indeed!

          • Steven K.

            Whatever that is is sounds terrible.

          • Kronar learned a valuable lesson that day in the world of Oglaf, but I shall say no more as it’s very NSFW.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            The masturbatory-digitalis should never be messed with!

      • Holly

        “You do not need to save them. You can just possess them. You can have as many cute boys as you want, as you are a Prince of Hell. MANY paramours.”

        • “Noooooo” stomps feet. “It’s not the same thing!”

          • Holly

            *sighs* How about I make an accident happen at the ice cream stand where that boy you like works? You can rescue him?

          • *digs toe into the ground.* Really? That would be swell!

          • Holly

            Excellent! *HUGS*

          • “Not that again! I’m too old for that.”

            HA!

          • Holly

            HEHE THis is fun ^^

          • It’s like a story round! 😀

    • dereule101

      Roller coasters were totally the limitations of human flesh he was talking about wanting to explore. Specifically, he wants to know how many times he can ride a roller coaster before hurling.

      • Steven K.

        Nice.

      • Holly

        Once I rode the Log Flume 76 times. And there was a period of 20 or 30 some where I didn’t even get up from the log. It was MAGICAL. Well, not really, but it rained on the only day during my vacation that we could go to the amusement park and all the other rides shut down and I didn’t want to waste the day.

        • dereule101

          Wow, most roller coaster rides I’ve ever done without getting up from the seat was 2.

          • Holly

            Like I said, the park was rained out. Most people went home.

    • Steven K.

      Yea – I think Kyle should take Europe – that’s what I’d choose, 😉

      • Holly

        Europe is pretty wicked!

  • Kiki

    OKAY, was NOT expecting that last bit. I’m sure everyone else thought Kyle was going to be turned into a sex slave too, right? But somehow that tender kiss to the forehead and that proud look in Laampros’s eyes is just CREEPY BEYON BELIEF. Creepier than the whole sex slave possibility route. Congratulations on the shocking plot twist. (Seriously I get chills looking at this page)

    • Steven K.

      Hmmm – I think it’s actually a lot less creepy than a sex-slave possibility. No-one should be forced into anything – especially sexual – against their will or desire. That would be horrific – this is more simply disturbing/uncomfortable and perhaps rather difficult to deal with some of the personal ramifications relating to it.

  • ShaedowDancer

    Called it! Or well, maybe if I didn’t I thought it really really really LOUDLY.

  • Kiki

    Also, wasn’t Laampros just saying he had been far too long without mortal pleasures while stroking Kyle’s stomach downwards with his claws? AGH the creepiness. Can’t wait for Saturday’s update!

    • Klaus

      I do not think that Laampros feels bound by human taboos like the one against incest. He almost says so outright on page 38. But I don’t think Alex would go here.

      • SofiaT

        Alex has confirmed he’s not going there 🙂

        • Adam Black

          I am taking that to mean they are not related, if romance status changes.

          • SofiaT

            I’m obviously not WoG, and I have no idea what other spins Alex is going to give this story, but I’d reckon a romantic/sexual relationship between Kyle and Laampros is not on the cards; regardless of whether they’re related or not.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Besides Laampros, Duncan is the only other person that we know of that is fire-proof. So if Kyle can’t control his fire when he has sex, that would leave Duncan as the only option for a romantic/sexual relationship.

          • Sapfo

            Maybe Laampros have some hot fire demon minion?

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Most likely, but also probably a lot worse than Duncan.

          • Sapfo

            Or this hos minion comes in and says: “All the things Duncan said to you, I say them too. But I mean them and will never lie to you, Hotstuff!” 😉

          • SofiaT

            As you said, the only person that we know of. Not necessarily “the only person; period”.
            Also, I like the idea of Kyle being able to choose his destiny and partners, not end up with a guy that doesn’t exactly scream Mr. Perfect because he’s out of options.

            This goes for Duncan too. If -and that’s a big “if” at this point- Kyle does end up with Duncan it should be because they both want to be together, not because “oh well, it’s either that or no sex ever.”

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            I’m glad you did notice “the only person we know of”. 🙂

          • SofiaT

            Lol, was that a test?
            I pay attention. 😉

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            No, not a test. But some would not.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Have you given it any thought that Kyle being part demon, or whatever, may not age at the same rate as humans? And if that is the case, now we will have a young Annihilator with eternal youth too, in addition to being fire-proof.
            So if Kyle does learn to control his fire but does not age as fast, he will be loosing partners to old age and death. A difficult thing when the people you love keep growing old and dying on you.

          • SofiaT

            To be honest, I used to make a lot of theories but I decided not to delve too much into things, because that made me a bit too anxious -and not in a good way.

            It’s of course a personal choice and one I might decide to forgo in the future, so I’m not saying everyone should do the same. But for the time being I take each page as it comes. 😀

            It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for Duncan and I’d love nothing more than to see a future of the two of them together become more than a remote possibility again.

            But if I start wishing for stuff to happen, I might end up getting disappointed.

            That said, you got a good point there. 😉

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            It’s just that I noticed that Alex made Duncan fire-proof, and now he’s going to make him young and long-lived too. So maybe there’s something there for the future if Duncan becomes a better man. 🙂

          • SofiaT

            You’re evil. You’re trying to get my hopes up.

            I’m not listening to you.

            *covers ears and starts chanting: nananananananana”*

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            I know that you are not listening, but if Laampros IS indeed Kyle’s biological father, then Kyle could get Laampros to break the contract or hand over a young repentant Duncan over to him if he wanted to. Coincidence that the demon to make a bargain with Duncan is Kyle’s father?

          • SofiaT

            Hm… I don’t know what Laampros’ intentions are for Earth but I just can’t picture Kyle being in a good enough relationship with him to start asking for favours.

            I think the really hard times and hard decisions for Kyle to make are only just beginning. We know that Earth will be in danger of some sort and that Kyle will become its champion -the greatest champion the world has ever seen.

            I find it more likely that Kyle and Duncan will work together against Laampros and his demon-army than the other way around.

          • Steven K.

            That may very well be true, but bummer that Kyle, on top of everything else, will have to betray or even fight against his new-found father.

          • Feverfew_M

            I really like that thought!

          • Steven K.

            Of course.

          • Klaus

            Kyle will have to learn to control his powers. For that he needs a fireproof room to practise in. I can well understand that he is not too keen on asking the team for that. Though he may get away with not being too specific on just how he is going to practise.

          • Steven K.

            There may be a lot of other – though lesser – demons in Laampros’s realm, and some may be more attractive to Kyle.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            But if they are evil or loyal to Laampros, they won’t be any good for a long term relationship with Kyle on Earth.

          • Adam Black

            probably —but Kyle seems to like bad boys gone good.

            Also fire-resistant. gay fire resistant men seem in short supply.

            Laampros just would have to seem better than Duncan.

          • Steven K.

            I’m sorry, but if Kyle finds Laampros repulsive physically/sexually/erotically, I don’t think any amount of fireproof-ness on Laampros’s part is going to attract/excite/stimulate Kyle into wanting any erotic or sexual contact, let alone make him able to “perform”/release/get off, etc. And if you can’t get turned on by someone, there’s really no good and decent point to having sex with that person.

          • Adam Black

            dont you read “Savage Love”?
            thats how kinks get started

          • Steven K.

            Well, with the several kink interest that I have, I still wish to engage in them with someone to whom I’m attracted.

          • Adam Black

            do worse that a demon

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Reminded, once again, of the value of an open mind. Thank you.

          • Adam Black

            the Force and all its Freudian mysteries has been invoked

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        Maybe, maybe not. But he has always been very gentle (for a demon) with Kyle. On page 36, he tickles him under the chin like a baby. And on this page he’s very gentle and affectionate with him. It seems that to Laampros, Kyle is just a baby.

  • MelvinSchlock

    Hell, boy!

  • Adam Black

    *SHOCK*
    I just realized, we are all assuming Laampros thinks he is Kyle’s **Dad** .

    But, he looks awfully, motherly in this picture.

    Laampros could be Kyle’s Mom

    • Sapfo

      Laampros really recovered after the pregnancy. No stretch marks at all.

      • mogoskier

        Well what the point of having the powers of hell if you can’t make your self look good.

        • Adam Black

          true that

      • SofiaT

        It goes to show how important moisturizing is.
        And Pilates. It’s working miracles!

        • Adam Black

          Those souls are very slimming

        • Steven K.

          Moisturizing especially important with all that hot dry air.

      • Adam Black

        a little bit of hellfire and pumice and good as new

    • vessto

      I love such caring Dads. ♥

      • Adam Black

        Saturday should be fun

    • What if he’s BOTH! He did say it was a while since he tried such things at mortal pleasure, maybe he don’t need to ;D

      • Steven K.

        THAT’s an interesting idea. Someone consult Sonny and ask if he knows anything about demons or angels reproducing through parthenogenesis.

        • Adam Black

          hes lurking ( i hope )

      • Adam Black

        that could be complicated

    • Steven K.

      Hmmmm – that would possibly make sense if we were fairly certain that female demons also had beards and chest hair, and lacked the more “elaborate bosoms” (with mammary structures) that we tend to associate with human females. I think I remember something in one of the LotR films (2T I think), where Gimli makes a reference to the fact that Dwarvish females also have beards (although I don’t remember off-hand anything in any of Tolkien’s main texts that would support this notion).

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        Don’t forget the chest hair!

        I think the “mom” comment is because Laampros is being very gentle, and has always been very gentle with Kyle so far.

        Apparently a father can’t be as gentle with his son as a mother. 😐
        But it remains to be seen if Laampros is indeed just being gentle with Kyle because he’s the father or because he has other motives.
        Edit: I should have said “baby son”, because to Laampros Kyle is just a baby.

      • Adam Black

        thats a common trope to explain the apparent lack of female dwarves.

  • Sapfo

    Eat breakfast, read some comments … Who needs TV or newspaper, when you have webcomics too follow?

    I don´t! ^_^

  • Thank you so much, Minion Jay! 🙂 In addition to the goodies you see at the Shop, I’m also selling a bunch of large The Young Protectors and Artifice buttons. Prices are the same as what you see in my store and the large 2.25″ buttons are $3/each.

    It’ll be great to meet you and your roommate. When you stop by, please let me know what your Disqus name is so I can make the connection. 🙂

  • Nate

    CALLED IT!

  • Serifeen

    Well Kyle isn’s a baby anymore… ;D
    IF this has been the last time Laampros enjoyed “mortal pleasures” it really has been a long time… 😀
    Kyle doesn’t seem too happy with this fact…

    But we do have a nice combination of characters in this scene…

    Anni, who.. well I would like to say >fucked up>)
    And Kyle, who is in the worst position we could think of- and on top of that a Laampros says he is his son….

    They should have a party! ;D

    • Klaus

      What is a long time to a mortal may not be a long time to a devil.

      The only clue we have to what Laampros may think of Duncan’s treatment of its son is that it has not commented on it yet. It seems that it does not consider it important.

      • Serifeen

        That’s true….

        Well, but Laampros WANTS, what Duncan offered… and even if he is angry, he would not show it, until he got, what he wanted…
        But I do not think, that he is too angry about it- Kyle is strong, so he should be able to handle that himself.. ;D

  • KiannaLeigh

    My son? *passes out from shock*

  • KiannaLeigh

    That would explain this quite nicely, actually …

  • KryX

    FOOSH:)

  • Yukiness

    I woke my neighbors just now. Was not expecting that route but perhaps Lampy doesn’t mean son in a genetic context but more of a adoptive minion.

    • Derkins

      It may be in the biblical sense…

  • John

    Ok, first things first.

    Congrats Admiral Jane and SofiaT; best of luck and thanks for helping out with the comments.

    So… Demon-power it is huh? Interesting. So in theory there could be part Angels. Extremely interesting. Standard wisdom would then have it that Kyle has a good chance of hurting Lampy then (since usually only demons can really hurt other demons).

    It would ALSO explain why Kyle is stronger here but then means that Lampy will be weaker on Earth. Weak enough for Anni to deal with on a more level footing perhaps? I’ve always wondered what Anni’s exit strategy is for this.

    • SofiaT

      First thing first, thank you 😀

      And… yes, very interesting.

      As for Anni, while things are not going the way he expected them to go, I always thought there’s no way he doesn’t have a plan B… and a plan C… and a plan D… Maybe that’s me overestimating him but I really hope not.

      Looking forward to tonight’s page, I’m hoping we’ll get to see Duncan’s face and his expression (I put my money on his jaw dropping to the floor).

      • Are you trying to will that new 4 day calendar into existence? 🙂

        • SofiaT

          I’m trying to use my Jedi powers but they don’t seem to be working. 🙁
          The Force is not very strong with this one.

          • Mine have been failing as well. The only problem I see with a four day week, where does the extra time go? Would it be added on to the other days?

          • SofiaT

            We’d have 91 weeks a year instead of 52. We’d continue to get bi-weekly updates of course (I’m still working on the R&D for the cloning of Alex,Adam and Veronica), which means 182 pages a year.

            Sounds like a plan, no?

          • You’ve thought this out well, young padawan 🙂 I like it!

            Now if we can just find the proper backers.

          • SofiaT

            I have already enlisted the help of @chrisdangerfield:disqus.
            He’s in charge of the cloning process. And overdue for a report, now that I think about it…

          • Hmmm. This needs no delay. 🙂

            Especially if I could slip in a request for a clone of Henry Cavill. 😀

          • SofiaT

            ….
            Now, why on earth did I not think of that? Make it two clones of Henry, please!!

            …And one of Ewan McGregor, hehe.
            Or Toby Stephens. I’m not picky. 😀

          • I mean if the technology is there I see nothing wrong with taking advantage of it! 😀

            Ooo, Ewan is nice too. *quickly googling Toby* And yes, I could see that as well. 🙂

    • Thanks, John, I will take that luck! 🙂

      As for Laampy being weaker on Earth. I do think that the hell realm probably allowed Kyle to level up, I’m not certain coming to Earth would level Laampy down. Though that would be quite the twist if it did.

      • Steven K.

        Kind of like the Martians ultimately succumbing to our diseases in WotW?

        • That could be a possibility.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            I don’t see Laampros as a weakling. He’s not going to be easy to get rid of. Even if he were to loose part of his power on Kyle’s side, he would probably be still extremely strong.
            And shouldn’t Laampros know anyway? Is he not ancient and knowledgeable? Perhaps crossed over before, or know of some who did?

          • Oh no, I don’t think going to Earth would cause Big Red any trouble. But it’s an interesting thought.

          • Steven K.

            Yeah – I wasn’t thinking of Laampros getting any earth-diseases, jut maybe an analogous situation to something on earth somehow lessens his powers.

    O.o OMFG someone save Kyle it looks like it’s going to turn into some weird daddy RAPE son play , but now that Kyles fire can hurt Anne that means satan is the only one he can have l Sex with without turning him into a pile of ash :’c

    • SofiaT

      Keep calm and don’t panic, Syncx.

      Not going that way, Alex has confirmed so. 🙂

      • Syncx

        O.o……OH ThANK goodness I was so worried I can breath again hhaaahhhhhh <-)

        • SofiaT

          Glad to have been of service. Breathing is important 🙂

    • Derkins

      Interesting take on Oedipus, I have to say. 🙂

  • Nataly

    I feel like this is turning into a Darth Vader meets his son moment.

  • Alle Taylor

    I had to make an account just to say something about this and say something that’s been bugging the hell out of me.
    First off I love this comic and the art style. It’s different from other yaoi comics which makes it good. Now with that out of the way. How in gods name is Kyle that guys son? I mean I know the fire thing but he’s not red and growing huge horns out of his head, and he’s actually a good guy so…not making sense at all.
    Now what bugs me. This extra page thing. I get that this is basicly a “free” comic and that the author is spending their time and effort drawing this. I get how time consuming drawing is, trust me, I’m an artist so I know how long it takes just to draw one character. Then again I’m a god damn perfectionist so it takes me forever. Anyways I get all that and I respect it. Hell I even get that you might want to make a little cash.
    But this is for everyone reading the comments. Is another page worth 400 bucks? Each time you donate for another page thats another 400 bucks going into this persons pocket. How many times have all of you put 400 bucks into their pocket? Why are you doing it over and over again? And for a single page? I could get maybe 400 bucks for like 2-3 pages but a single page? No. Like I said I love this art style and comic, but a single page is not worth that much. You should lower the price. In this day and age when not everyone has money to throw around, you should be mindful of your readers. Maybe some of them can throw money down an endless pit, but i’m not one of them. I could see if it was 20 bucks a page or even 50, then I might chip in. But this 400 is just stupid. I know we can donate whatever price we feel like, but that’s not the point. My point is that you want way to much for drawing a single comic page. People think before you donate!

    • SofiaT

      Hi Alle,

      Welcome to the comments section!
      We have a fun community here so I hope you enjoy your time in TYP fandom! Also, you might want to verify your email with Disqus so that your comments may be posted immediately and not get stuck in moderation queue.

      About your question regarding the extra page… Alex is the writer of this story but he’s hired Adam for penciling it and Veronica for coloring it. Of course Alex wants to make sure they earn a fair wage for their fantastic work. As you can tell from the quality of the art, they’re both professionals and very good at what they do.
      So Alex pays them out of his own pocket for that regular Saturday free page. But since he would like to give us more often updates where possible, he’s proposed that when the donation bar reaches $400, another page will also be available.
      You may be able to tell that it actually costs him much more to produce a page than $400 so the donated money goes towards the funding on the extra page but it by no means ends in his pocket!
      More information about that can be found in the FAQ section: http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/faq/

      And of course, nobody is being forced to donate. This is just our way of showing our appreciation for the hard work these three put on the creation of this comic -and our way of helping getting a new page faster!

      Hope that helps 🙂

      • Adam Black

        we should find out creators birthdays …. for something?

        • SofiaT

          Ha, that’s not a bad idea! We should ask Alex when it’s his birthday… but what would be get him??
          Hmmm. I propose we save money and get him a ticket to come to Sydney’s ComicCon!

          That’s a completely selfless and altruistic suggestion, of course.

          • Adam Black

            of course…
            I dont know, i m really poor.

            food , alcohol, homemade smut?

            something he can use

          • I was born on April 28th. But no gifts are necessary. Y’all showing up each week to read my work and share your thoughts is plenty for me. That’s like having my birthday every day of the year! 🙂

          • Adam Black

            ( thats my sisters birthday too. )

            Maybe we can make a video card
            ( and we just missed your half-birthday too )

            Thats sweet, but every day is wayy to much.

            Youll be like Dorian Grey when the story ends.

            We are going to have to dole out the fun in smaller bite-sized pieces.

            I will do my part , and resolve to be much more serious for the next 15 seconds or so

          • SofiaT

            15 seconds!! That’s ambitious! 😉

          • Adam Black

            I could practice a little Zen,
            and try cutting it back to ten,
            But the temptation maybe too great,

            ( Obligatory 15 seconds ) … masturbate

            In a comic of naked men

          • SofiaT

            Entered in my calendar! 😀

            And I just realised it’s Nov 8 today.

            I almost forgot it’s my mom’s nameday! Oups.

            Our showing up here is a gift to us btw, not you. That’s just the side benefit 😛

      • Feverfew_M

        This moderating thing? You’re good at that!

        • SofiaT

          Thanks Fever! I’m trying.

          Both the Admiral and I want to do right by Alex and the wonderful community here.

          It’s a learning curve. 🙂

          • I’m thinking of be-dazzling the training wheels.

    • MonRohr

      So you say, this comic is great, but not worth 400 bucks.
      Well, that’s your opinion and you have every right to voice it. But if some people are willing to pay that much, why bother? They don’t spend your money, do they?

      You say you’re an artist yourself. Than set up a webcomic yourself and see if 400 bucks for a free page are justified or not.

      And if you are able create are story that gets readers willing to pay 400 bucks SEVENTEEN weeks in a row to get extra pages!

      Sorry, English is not my mother language, but I hope my meaning get’s clear…

      • Thanks for your input MonRohr! 🙂
        But while very much appreciated, please remember the “tone of respect” that’s essential of the page’s comments policy 🙂

        • MonRohr

          Okay, sorry, I guess I went a little bit over board. I had a shitty Day and that comment just made me angry.
          I really hate it when people diminish the work of another.
          Maybe I’m overly sensitive, but I read that comment as an insult against Alex and the other artists, against their hard work and against all the fans who donate their hard earned money for the next page. (I wish I had the money to do this too…)
          This comic ist great; the story, the art, all that together is absolutly stunning.
          So I earnestly want to apologize if my tone was to sharp. It was not my intention to disrespect anyone.
          But I hope he will get the same note about the “tone of respect”, because I think his tone in his comment wasn’t much more respectful than mine. At least the way I read it.
          Again, I may be overly sensitive against it. But things like that can really push my buttons. Especially when I have kind of a bad day.

          • SofiaT

            Hi MonRohr!
            You didn’t do anything wrong. 🙂

            The Admiral’s comment was just a reminder to everyone to keep a respectful tone, because questions like that do tend to rile people up sometimes and we wanted to make sure everyone remembered that before further comments were made. It was your right to reply to Alle, and you did so well IMO (although, as Alex has said in his comments policy, it’s better for commenters to be careful with the “you” statements), but Alle also had the right to pose a question that has been troubling them for some time. It was a legit question and one that is good we all had the opportunity to address here. 🙂

            Thank you for your contribution and for your thoughtful response just now!

            Edit: sorry to hear you had a bad day yesterday. I’m hoping today will be better and remember… NEW PAGE TONIGHT!! YAYYYY!! 😀

    • dereule101

      A new page is worth exactly what people are willing to pay for it. If that’s, for each person, a dollar here or five dollars there, then that’s fair. The $400 for a bonus page goes toward paying two artists and himself for having to produce another page ahead of schedule. As an artist myself, I am glad to see Alex not only asserting the value of his own time and talent, but also the time and considerable talent of the two artists who realize each page of this comic.

    • I can see Sofia already wrote you a good answer, but I want to chip in too.
      Alex approached this on another webcomic some months ago (topic was different but this was part of it), and he said that the $400 doesn’t even cover paying Adam and Veronica. It only helps him so he doesn’t have to pay so much out of his own pocket.

      So. Since we get a weekly regular page for free, it means that when we DO get a bonus page every week as well, we help pay an average of $200 per page = $100 for Adam and Veronice each per page. Think of that amount and the hours spent on making the page. The rest Alex pay from his dayjob which he also has to live for himself.

      I read somewhere that a comic page like this easily cost $4-500 to make (for one page) when paying the normal wages in the comic business. And this IS the comic business where we have professional artists working on the page (you can see their work in Marvel and other companies). In the actual comic world ONE 30 pages comic cost somewhere around $15,000 to make before it’s even sent off to the printers.
      You pay the writer, penciler, inker, flatter, colorist and letterer (might have forgotten one), and if someone has more than one area then a pay per page is agreed upon, but JUST for ex. coloring the page the price start at about $100 and up for a work like this.
      I’m probably not off much when I say that one page cost Alex about $300, or more, to make.

      Now, you might have noticed that I only mention paying Adam and Veronica from the donations, but what about Alex? I’m not sure he even pays himself (do you, Alex?) and he spends 30-50 hours a week on this comic besides his day job. That’s another full time job. That’s on writing the comic, communicating with the artists/printer companies/various comic people/others, setting the pages up, reading the comments -where he just now have gotten two mods helping him because that has become a lot more work with the rising number of comments – and more. Then there’s going to cons to promote the comic, having the comic produced into print, making bonus material, sent comics out, replying to questions, mails, inqueries etc, etc.

      So you’re wrong. $400 dollars per bonus page isn’t making Alex a rich guy. Nothing of it goes into his pockets. A lot of what he does with this comic is out of HIS pockets, his time and because he loves what he’s doing.
      Rich? That’s a big NO. I would rather say he’s under-paid 🙂

      • DanishWolf, you’ve done a very good job summing up the production expenses and you’re right that the $400 donation doesn’t cover my art costs for the two pages I post in that week. So, none of that money winds up in my pocket.

        But I am very, very grateful for it because it makes it possible for me to be able to afford to work with such fantastic talent as Adam and Vero, something that wouldn’t happen without the support of y’all. I simply wouldn’t be able to afford it. And I’m also very aware of how amazingly generous y’all are—$400 for seventeen weeks in a row in simply amazing!—and before that we had another long series of bonus pages (I think y’all only gave us one week off) and I think there was even another long run before that.

        Whether any of it winds up in my pockets or not, this is indisputably an extraordinary amount of support—it humbles and blows me away and so I’m not surprised at all when other folks react to it with bewilderment. I myself can’t believe how lucky I am to have such awesome, supportive readers! 🙂

        In answer to your question, if you combine the donations, with the ads on this site, with the money I’m making selling the Artifice graphic novel and other merch at Cons, Amazon and through my store, I’m just about breaking even at this point in terms of comics costs. Maybe even making a very small (well below minimal wage) profit. Which, considering I started this in 2012, is IMHO doing quite well for what would otherwise be a very expensive hobby that almost no one makes a profit on and certainly not in the first 5 years.

        So, I’m not really getting paid yet. But I’d like to think that my “business model” of releasing my comics for free on the web (with donator support!), raising printing funds through Kickstarter and then having cool stuff to sell to the general public that I was able to buy in bulk at a discount will at some point mean I’m making my living through my own comics work. For example, I’m not making any money on the The Young Protectors Volume One Kickstarter ($134,000 pledged = $120,000 post-Kickstarter/Amazon fees = real money but reward production and shipping costs will = $117,000)—so I mean it when I advise other creators that even a very successful Kickstarter is not a payday. BUT what I will have in a year is a bunch of cool stuff to sell that’s already paid for and if I’ve made that stuff cool enough for other folks to want to buy it that could then turn “breaking even” into a “not-bad-paying part-time job” for me or even something I could make a living off of.

        There are no guarantee my plan will work, but I’ve been encouraged so far by the success I have had so, fingers crossed, people will still be interested in my stories a year from now after the Kickstarter backers have gotten all their goodies, and I’m able to make most of those goodies available for sale to the general public. A lot of creators have approached me, asking how to copy what I’m doing (always happy to help other creators!), so there’s likely to be a fair amount of testing of this strategy. 🙂

        So, that’ s my TL;DR answer to your question—which is as much in response to all my fellow creators as to you. I very much believe in encouraging others to learn from what I’m doing—and when doing so, I also want to make sure other creators who follow my model have realistic expectations. Despite appearances, I’m not “making bank” yet, but yes, someday I hope to be. (And it is also my hope someday to rule over the American continents, but I’m currently working that out through other means…)

        So, it’s in the spirit of speaking to other creators, that I encourage the OP and other artists to listen to your fellow artists in this thread who urge you not to undervalue your time, effort and creative output. Be in this for the long haul and make sure that if you are looking to get compensated for your time, that you are getting paid a real living wage (to allow for such extravagancies as paying for health insurance and even, gasp, guaranteeing a little money to put towards savings) and accept nothing less. It’s so easy to undervalue our work—trust me, like most creators, on any given day, I could sing dozens of arias of “My writing is worthless, worthless, I tell you!”—but don’t listen to those demons. Listen to your buddy Alex:

        Make beautiful things for other people that you hope will enrich their lives. And do your best to set things up financially so that you can keep doing it with joy in your heart for a long, long time.

        It’s what I’m trying to do and so far, even if I’m not supporting myself creating my comics yet, the ability to do that at least seems realistic at some point—and that makes me happy in ways that I wish everyone could feel. 🙂

        P.S. I am very moved and gratified by the kind words towards my own and my artists’s work in this thread. Thank you all very much for taking the time to let me know you feel that way. It really means the world to me.

    • Derkins

      Artists, especially comic artists, are often some of the few highly skilled professionals that are expected to work for either less than minimum wage, or nothing. I haven’t read through the other responses yet, but supporting artists are exactly what allow artists to devote their time to these projects. If they didn’t have support then they wouldn’t be able to maintain the lifestyle. I’ve seen many comic artists go the way of no time and no money, and thus a dead comic. If you love a project, and you have the money to spare, then why wouldn’t you want to help keep it alive and even thriving? *am also an artist*

    • Steven K.

      There are such things as patrons and benefactors who help to facilitate artists continuing to be engaged in their craft without having to take out inordinate amounts of time to make a living through other means – thus taking time away from that which they would otherwise create. If a patron likes those creations, he or she may do what they can so that the artist may continue in that creative endeavor – producing more of the favored creations – instead of the art drying up or only tricking out due to having to put too many hours in elsewhere in some other job just to pay the bills.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      As one who works in a related business, if you imagine $400 is too much to be entertained at this level of quality, TWICE A WEEK, and in this fashion, you are gravely ill-informed. This is one of the most generous deals in town. I know very little about a great many things, but I KNOW this for a fact.

      And, of course, it is ALWAYS an option to wait the full week and forgo the extra page. Many readers here simply cannot contribute, and that is well and supportively understood. In addition, many of us have supported an earlier Kickstarter campaign that will allow you to reap the benefits of this amazing entertainment completely for free… eventually. From all of us on that front… You are welcome.

      Of course, if you don’t enjoy the work itself, then there is not much to say. You are, of course, free to change the channel. One of the few laudable things about America in this complex time.

      Good luck, however you choose to proceed.

    • Klaus

      I am grateful to those who buy all of us an extra page every Wednesday.

  • Help!
    Apparently I did something that switched my comment section to mobile look. I don’t want this. How do I turn it off?

    • The edit option does seem to be back again, that’s definitely on Discus because I see it too. As for the mobile view, I’ve been looking around. Is it within the app section of editing your profile?

      • I can’t even open my profile – or anyones. I have nothing but the option to switch comments to Newest/Best/Oldest and the option to collapse a comment. And then when I click a comment I get the option to vote it or reply. That + a sidebar that goes all the way down along the comments. That’s all I got.
        I only know it’s mobile because when it happened I was asked if i like the new mobile look, and that dissapeared when I said no.

  • Alexander

    I think its worth noting that we don’t necessarily know how demons treat family and the like, and neither do we know how they begin. Not saying its true, but it could be that demons start off human, in which case, Lampy could intend for Kyle to become his son, but that Kyle isn’t yet, or isn’t his son in the biological sense.

  • Hi AJ.. now I followed that link, and going back your replies to me on the other comment can’t be seen o.O

    But I just got the WEIRDEST message when following the link to the helpdesk.

    The message said:

    Uh oh… Something didn’t work.
    This page doesn’t seem to exist. You might have followed a bad link or mistyped the address, feel free to try again. Alternatively, you can return to the home page, or visit the help page for more options.

    But what was really weird was the background of the message. It was a LONG picture of what seemed to be a ‘live’ image of something being zoomed in so much you couldn’t see anything but the color lines. Except it moved a little. This is really weird. All I did was trying to tag a person and all went weird.

    • I don’t think what happened is normal. I’m gonna try writing Disqus. This is looking too weird and something is clearly wrong. I’m gonna switch to another browser. Can’t even find the link to them on this one right now.

    • Sorry. I did the link wrong. I’ve fixed it. But it might be good to write the Discus folks. I looked around, but I have no idea.

      • Could you try and post the the right link in a reply here. I want to see if that does something

        • http://disqus.com/dashboard/ See if that works.

          • Oh wow.. it worked somehow. The link only showed me the half side of the dashboard page, the right side, but when clicking back the comment section now looks normal again. That is the weirdest experience I’ve ever had with Disqus o_O

            But thank you. What ever was wrong is now fixed <3

          • I’m glad whatever it was worked. Discus has been having gremlins the last couple of days.

          • Yeah, stupid Disqus. This was truely a gremlin above normal. Disqus twitter even said this must be a rare thing. They’ve hardly heard of it.
            Anyway. Feel free to just delete the two convos we just had. No reason to leave them in the comment section.

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            It might help others having problems with Disqus.

          • I think Jakk’s right, it might be good to leave it incase others are having trouble.

          • Yup. And I got to write a long reply this time without losing it. Damn, the other reply sounded better and I had almost finished it 😉

          • I hate it when that happens. But I’m glad everything is back to normal (well as normal that normal can be). 🙂

          • Chris Dangerfield

            normal… with muffins!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            more muffins

          • Chris Dangerfield

            muffins

          • HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Muffins… I say muffins…

        • A muffin would be good. A muffin is always good.

  • Sensational Sai

    Prince of Hell? Wtf! I get imprisoned by the military for two months and this is what I come home to??? Omg the epic plottings! I can say I freaking loved getting to read so much new stuff because I had to catch up! Can’t wait for more!!!

    • Oh no, Sai. Good you’re home again, and you’re right. One of the good thing is getting to catch up on stories again.
      Are you gonna make some evil plot twists in Gilded Cage? Do I need to prepare myself for shocks? 😉

      • Sensational Sai

        Yes, I have so many to catch up on! Ask over there my dear. I don’t want to take away from this amazing comic.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Ummm so given that sentiment… shouldn’t you be off slaving for our entertainment elsewhere…?

          Not that I ever feck-off like that. 😀

          • Sensational Sai

            Omg, you guys are incorrigible! ~lashes him with a wet noodle~. I deserve time to destress, read sexy comics, and watch Thor 2! XD

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Okay, I won’t be distracted by the sexy wed-noodles comment, but YES you deserve time to de-stress *starts stop watch* Sooo how long do you think you’ll need for this ‘distressing’ thing? 😀

            Edit: Chris is HOT but his younger brother Liam is hotter… WHAT?… just sayin’

          • Sensational Sai

            XD Believe me, during my lovel stay, I wrote out two new chapters of storyboard. We just have to wait for Lori to draw them since I can’t do anything but color lineart. XD I suck at drawing.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            All respect for art skills… I work with people who all make me look like a paraplegic with crayons… so no worries. Be most well.

          • Sensational Sai

            Oh? What do you work with?

    • Glad you enjoyed the catch up! Thank you! 😀

      And “imprisoned by the military”? Should I ask?

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Yes… yes… you should ask. It sounds sexy when you say it like that… 😉

      • Sensational Sai

        Haha, well, I did something unsafe and got shocked on my ship. So they dug around until they found something to prosecute me with and I had to spend two months on the ship without internet n stuff.

        • Ah, I’m sorry to hear that. But you’re doing OK now, health-wise yes?

    • Adam Black

      sounds like a comic plot, right there.

  • Derkins

    Is it wrong of me that this little twist is super exciting? I’ve been waiting for something big to happen, to signify the culmination of all this. Pretty much everything that we have seen so far was set up to lead to this. Our little unwilling hero is finally getting thrown into the deep end. He’s part of the big picture now, and not necessarily just a pawn in it. *squee*

    • This twist is very exciting! I’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what comes next.

  • Adam Irving

    This page was hysterical, especially the last panel. The subtle shift in expression on the demon’s face is just priceless. It immediately invoked an “awww!” response, especially with the dialogue. The fact that this was preceded by several pages of tense and stressful plot reveals makes the juxtaposition especially nice. Cheers to all three creative hands on this one!

    Speaking of cheers, a tip of the hat is also due to the new moderators! May things always go smoothly.

    • dereule101

      I know! Even though I’m sure Kyle’s in major panic and shock, I couldn’t help but laugh at the situation as Laampros went all proud papa.

    • Adam Black

      I totally agree!
      ( but now laughing hurts … )

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Those are the sex muscles… they overlap…

  • Steven K.

    Hi – I just wanted to comment on your assertion that they didn’t actually DO anything. There may not have been penetration involved, but it was still SOMETHING. I don’t meant to be indelicate, but in order to make a point I have to ask a bit of indulgence. If you were in bed with a guy, both of you naked, he on top of you, and he was rubbing his very hard/engorged penis up and down against your (similarly engorged) clitoris, causing you to have an orgasm, though without entering your vaginal orifice – only sliding up/down or back/forth against the clitoris and labia minora, etc. – wouldn’t you say that was kinda something?

    • Kate G

      If you notice, in the bottom paragraph, I did clarify myself. Pleasuring someone *is* something. If you could kindly back off a little, that would be wonderful.

  • SofiaT

    Good questions!

    Unfortunately I can only answer the first one: every Saturday are the regular updates, that will happen come hell (*snort*) or high water and when the donation bar makes it to $400 (which has been happening every week for the past few months) we got an EXTRA update on Wed/days!! 😀

    Loved it! But you know demons lie… so wondering if this is true or whether it’s Laampros playing with Kyle’s mind in the way that demons like to manipulate humans.

    Also congrats SofiaT and Admiral Jane – I’ve enjoyed your posting in the comments in the previous months, and reckon you’ll make great mods. 🙂

    There really is something about being able to comment with sympathetic persons about a comic that is so well done. It multiplies the enjoyment! 🙂

    • Tina

      True, true. I still want to see Duncan’s reaction though

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Demons LIE?????? What are you saying?

      And remember MODS live a life of leisure at a posh all-paid spa… so don’t waste your tears. Oi.. what a life! 🙂

      • SofiaT

        Haha! I wish!

        • Chris Dangerfield

          And the genie expands out of the lamp to make Sofia’s dreams come true… oh the life of a MOD!!!!!

  • Marie Laurent

    That’s not true! That’s impossible!
    /hand

    • Klaus

      It is certain because it is impossible.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        You now I’ve said that “impossible” line about my family many times and they are still… my family. Dang.

        • I like to joke that my younger brother is the white sheep of the family.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Well you were the FASTER PUSSYCAT KILL KILL KILL… so yes.. bad girl.. BUT AWESOME!

          • Well, if you ever meet my brother, that will really be hilarious.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            HA! Sounds like many I know. 🙂

          • That you live in LA… I wouldn’t doubt it. But so long as he loves Doctor Who, I will keep him. 😀

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Awwww… loves Dr. Who. All is well !

          • Yes, yes it is. 🙂 I’m actually a little jealous of little brother at times. Plays a mean set of drums, holds great understanding of music in general. I just look at a sheet of music and go bwah? Stupid little dots.

  • i know…right 😛

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Really? Laampros has been waiting 18 years… so quickly?… well I guess for him that works.. Oh BTW your next page will be coming in 18 years… quickly right? 🙂

  • bronakopdin

    I dunno…. but I really love the disgust in Kyle’s face! foremost in the second panel!!! that’s really how we look like, isn’t it?
    great work dear Adam and Veronica 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Yes but to be honest I remember looking at my dad like that when he tried to dance like a white guy… so Dads! Huh! Whatta ya gonna do?

      • bronakopdin

        well disgust can come in many forms xD dunno how your Dad danced but 😀

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Fair enough… he never had flames shooting out of his head…

          • bronakopdin

            I suppose so xD

  • Lance Gilroy

    Heh, the comments now have a safe-word; if only poor Kyle had one right about now.

  • Anna Calloway

    Wow, this is what I get for being absent a month. Dang. The shit is hitting the fan, and I’ve been missing it!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Which fan did it hit? Is it on Facebook? (fecal hitting and all). 🙂

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        Chris, it’s always the same fan…poor fan, it must be covered by a mountain of shit.

  • SofiaT

    Nope, definitely not just you!

    He does have a talent with pacing and with leaving each page on a “DUNDUNDUN” note, huh? 😀

    The truth is that Alex is planning the scripts for his stories years in advance. Since he’s a filmmaker, he seems to be approaching writing comics the same way he would if filming a movie. In this case, the story was outlined and the “scenario” written some time ago. I guess he makes a few changes here and there along the way, as he seems to be constantly busy with it and in constant communication with Adam about the expressions of the characters, body language etc and, of course, the arrangement of the panels of each page. But the ending has already been written -and I’d bet he LOVES to see us squirm and wait impatiently for the next page every time, evil Creator that he is! 😛

    So, quite a bit of work goes into this but then again the result is so artful, how could it be otherwise! 🙂

  • Steven K.

    Awwww – that wouldn’t be very nice. I almost downvoted that comment, but you have such a cute/handsome avatar photo, I couldn’t bring myself to do it.

  • Cman65

    AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
    Ok by the time I come home from work tonight should have the next page up

  • davefragments

    I am so ready for the next page… It’s been a hard day.

  • Chibi

    Sprained my ankle last night .. need new page to make me feel better

    TT _ TT

    • SofiaT

      Ouch! Ice & a new page of TYP should do the trick. 🙂

      Get better soon!

      • Chibi

        yep got a ankle wrap thing … and ice and rugrats the only thing I’m waiting for is a new page XD …. … being able to walking normally would be nice though…

  • SofiaT

    Every time I re-read this comic I can’t help but be awed by how much the art has progressed. It was really good to begin with but Adam has done an amazing job in this chapter. And Veronica’s colours are just stunning.

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      One hundred percent agree! It’s simply fantastic.

    • Denise Cruz

      They keep on improving at every single page they create! No wonder we’d felt even kind of freaked out with some scenes here!
      Great job!!

      Oh! BTW: Congrats, Sofia T for your new ‘function’ right here! I think Alex made great choices, with you an, also , AJ! 😉

      • 😀

        • Denise Cruz

          Congrats, honey!! I’m very glad for you! (for both of you)
          I’m feeling almost like someone with REALLY smart and cool ‘baby sisters’ ! lol (So proud of you! ) ^v^

          • Awww, thanks Denise! 🙂 You’re cool too!

          • Denise Cruz

            You are very welcome!! 😀

      • SofiaT

        🙂

  • Terri Sutton

    I just realised something. Laampy is naked, Kyle is naked . . . isn’t that awkward?

    • Jakk Anthony Guzman

      Umm no, unless you have a thing against nudity. It wouldn’t bother me at all. To me nudity is very normal, almost as if I had been born that way! 😛

      • Terri Sutton

        Maybe the thing I have against nakedness is because I am Australian. The more skin that is covered, the less chance you’ll get bitten.

        • SofiaT

          And the sun. The sun here burns!

      • Steven K.

        Hey – I don’t suppose you’d like to come be my houseboy?? I won’t even have to ask you the first part of the interview questionnaire where I determine how comfortable you are about being nekkid around the house.

    • Denise Cruz

      Kyle is so freaked out right now, he doesn’t even remember it! Poor thing!
      And Laampros… He never wears clothe, anyway! It’s too hot there! lol I don’t think he would care about it…

      • Jakk Anthony Guzman

        Yeah, but low humidity. 😛

        • Denise Cruz

          Yeah! But… Do hellish creatures miss that?! O.o I’m not sure…

        • Having lived in Arizona and it reaching over 115. Hot is pretty much hot. At 115, you feel the burn. 🙂

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            Oh I’m sure Admiral. I was just making fun of the people that talk about “dry heat”. Hot is hot.

          • I used to be one of them until I lived in the desert. 🙂

          • SofiaT

            Take it from someone who’s experienced the dry 42 Celsius of Athens and the humid 35 Celsius of Sydney: hot is hot, but I’ll take the dry heat over the humid heat any day.

          • True! I would as well, having experienced the 110-115 with a lovely 80 % humidity.

          • Denise Cruz

            I’m used to 40º Celsius, at Summer here is kind of hellish..

  • Jakk Anthony Guzman

    Oh, I think I know why Laapmros and probably all the other demons are always naked, there are no fire-proof clothes in hell! :-O

    • HA!

    • Denise Cruz

      Agreed! I’ve also thought about it! XDD

    • dereule101

      They could use asbestos but it is so ITCHY. 😉

    • Steven K.

      Good deduction!

  • Holly

    Has camping time started already?! *has froot loops but not to share*

    I am excited to see what happens next. ^_^

    Also super awesome YP people who follow me on tumblr, I changed me URL. LOL

    • Denise Cruz

      HI there, Holly! It seems so! ^v^
      Did you get the virgin last Wednesday? XD

      • Holly

        I DID ^^

        • Denise Cruz

          Yay! Good job! lol
          I wish I could! But I won’t be here on time… I’m already going to bed… Will see the new page in the morning! ^^

          • Holly

            aww bye denise!

          • Denise Cruz

            I still don’t want to go… Any chance of the new page being released in about 30 or 40 minutes? Do you think?
            AJ? SofiaT? Do you know anything about it?

          • We’re waiting just like you, waiting waiting!

          • Denise Cruz

            So, no earlier news for you , too, uhn?!

          • Nope. Nuthin!

          • Denise Cruz

            Uhn… We wish! XD
            I’m starting thinking about kidnapping Alex and not letting him go untill this chapter is ready… lol

          • HA! XD

          • Denise Cruz

            XDD
            I can dream… Can’t I?! XDD

          • There is talk of cloning Alex Adam and Veronica so the pages get done faster and more often. 🙂

          • Denise Cruz

            HA! I believe even they would like it! It would make easier getting a full night of sleep without having crazy fans poking their feets, wanting new pages all the time….lol

          • Denise Cruz

            I’m heading to bed, now! (02:10 a.m., already!)
            See you tomorrow!
            Nite, nite!! 😉

          • G’Night Denise! “See” you tomorrow. 🙂

          • This is very true.

          • Holly

            Yes but they wouldnt have the skills…. they would be babies

          • SofiaT

            We’d clone them to be fully-functioning adults of course. Like in the movie The Island.

          • Holly

            AH. okay then…

          • Holly

            Does this mean i can have one of each to draw my own work? are the clones still getting paid?

          • SofiaT

            The Alex, Adam and Veronica clones will be trademarked and owned by AMW Comics. This will be our gift to Alex for his birthday in April.

            The other clones (see: Henry Cavill, Ewan McGregor etc) will be made on order for the requesting individuals… if they can afford them. 😛

          • I suppose the Originals could hire them out.:D

          • Like Sofia said. Cause I have me an order in for Henry Cavill. I would want him to be a full grown man. 🙂

          • SofiaT

            Hehe.
            Hehehe.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Did you order the with Hugh Jackman model to go with Henry?

            *sorry I don’t even know who I’m replying to*

          • Ooooooh! That would be nice. There is a nice Ewan McGregor model.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Three for one!

          • Holly

            WAIT! IF THERE ARE CLONES THEN WHO WILL WANT SEXBOTS?!

            WHY DO YOU NOT LOVE THE CYBER HUMANS!!!!???

          • What a dilemma! (as grandma used to say) Hmmmm, I have to think about that one.

            Edit: I mean Henry Cavill!

          • Holly

            sad

          • Well I suppose I could have sexbots as well. One who looks like Henry!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Yes, that!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Does he look like Deacon on my Fridge?

          • Holly

            i am lost now

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I have the Deacon (artifice) fridge magnet… of him unzipping his torso on my fridge.. you can get them at Alex’s web-store and I highly recommend it.

            http://store.yaoi911.com/artifice-unzipping-magnet/

          • Holly

            They can look like whatever you want. Plus no pesky human problems that you would have with a clone. No eating or sleeping etc ^_^

          • Sapfo

            How is he hanging right now?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            He’s sideways, until I see the new page and see if he’s STILL IN CHAINS… or not. 😀

          • Sapfo

            You are at least optimism … You dont want my theoris then ….

          • That would work for me!

          • Sapfo

            All for one?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Exactly!

          • Sapfo

            And More for me! Muahahaha!

            Okay, I share

          • Holly

            I just realized something… *sad android face*

          • Awww. Have a mech muffin.

          • Adam Black

            motoroil madness

          • HA!

          • Steven K.

            I’ll take one of those too – but I think I’ll take the age 17 model (unless there are no laws against getting all snuggly with an underage-appearing clone, – if that’s the case, I guess the “original” model would work).

          • Steven K.

            Good point.

          • SofiaT

            We got no inside info I’m afraid. However, it’s no secret that Alex is at the BENT-CON today and (according to Friday’s Bent-Con schedule http://bent-con.org/scheduleguests/friday-schedule/ ) the signing tables will be open till 10pm, California time…

          • Denise Cruz

            OH! Good point! I’d completely forgotten about the BENT-CON…
            Well.. having this on mind, now I’m really heading to my bed.(Already 2 a.m. here).
            I’ll see the next page tomorrow morning!
            TY! Nite-nite!! 😉

    • Jamie Dutton

      Camping with Froot Loops sounds like a new Cooking network show, lol.

      • Holly

        I once got stuck watching Cooking Channel all day and i was starving, begged my brother to change the channel. So he turned it to the Travel Network. Because “No Reservations” was on. *head desk*

    • Denise Cruz

      Do you thnk is it possible that Laapros has called Kyle his ‘darlng son’ just because he’s also someone who can handle fire and this kind of stuff?

      • Holly

        NO! That is definitely a possibilty but NO I do not accept

        • Denise Cruz

          lol Why?! Do you want him to be his son? For true? O.o

          • Holly

            I dunno. I am an odd duck

          • Denise Cruz

            Oh! I wouldn’t say you’re an odd duck… I just got a little surprised about it! Everyone else seems to be against it, so, I thought you would be too. ^v^
            After all, I’m the only one who still wants Duncan with that redhaired boy… (Who’s the odd duck, now?!) lol

          • Holly

            I dunno. I think it would be an interesting story line.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Think about it. So far Laampros has treated Kyle better than Duncan ever did.???

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            And he may be planning on using him in a worse way than Duncan ever did! :-O

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Jakk… my little ray if sunshine… just because he has pointy teeth, horns and flames shooting out of his head… well I think you’re presuming. 😀

          • Jakk Anthony Guzman

            😀

          • Steven K.

            Isn’t he though? I think somehow Adam has infiltrated our little Jakk somehow and corrupted his mind.

          • Adam Black

            hey, i almost always *know* when I have infiltrated someone .

            besides he was almost definitely pre-corrupted .
            I heard dirty rumors he reads Yaoi.

          • davefragments

            He’s going to raise him up as his heir — Kyle the demon lieutenant and adopted son

          • Chris Dangerfield

            And in a Demon infested Estonia.. that might be a step up:

          • davefragments

            And George will bear witness…

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Yeahhhhh… like he can help that…

          • Steven K.

            I’m not sure about that. I just went to a concert this evening of the Estonian Philharmonic Orchestra who were performing at MSU (E. Lansing, MI – the director, Neemi Jarvi, was conductor/music director of the Detroit Symphony for something like 15 years). Anyway, in the first half of the concert, they were accompanied by this adorable dark-haired Armenian cellist-boy (who won the gold medal in the 2011 Tchaikovsky competion – perhaps the most presitigious music competition in the world) for Dvorak’s Cello concerto. But then, in the second half, they played the 5th Symphony of Sibelius (which I’ve always loved – the one with the tricky ending), and they gave such a lovely, wonderful, sumptuous performance it took my breath away. But then, as an encore, they launched into Sibelius’ Andante Festivo. O -M – G! Now that Andante, to begin with, is quite an achingly beautiful little string piece, but they played it SOOO incredibly well and full of spirit and emotion – I don’t think I’d heard ANYTHING so gorgeously and beautifully played in person in a long time – it had me in a puddle of tears – heck, I was still crying half-way home it had been so amazing and touching. SO – PLEASE DO NOT DERIDE OR PUT DOWN THE ESTONIANS – their classical musicians, at least, are top rate and just gave me one of the most beautiful cultural and musical experiences in recent memory.

          • Adam Black
          • Chris Dangerfield

            Excess emoting duly noted and recorded:

            Please replace all references to Estonia with a less talented city, but with an equally enjoyable name, but also soon to under Laampros’ area of control.

            *dusts hands*

            Problem solved.

          • Denise Cruz

            *I* agree with you, on this one! XDD (The *I* thing is kind of funny, sometimes…lol)

            Although, will our naïve 18 y.o. boy even be able to think about it, cleverly, after what he’ve just heard and saw?! O.o (The poor kid seems to be almost lost in such a huge pool of mixed feelings…)

            It’s expected from him, for sure… He’s a YP! But, *I* think it can be a little too much for someone so young. For him, it’s probably like being caught in the middle of a hurricane, without even knowing it was around…

            Anyway, if he can put himself back on the horse, AGAIN, and figure out he could use Laampros… It definately can be their way back! 😉

      • Steven K.

        Definitely possible.

        • Denise Cruz

          So… he can also be thinking about that ‘you will serve me very well’ thing in a … errr.. kinky/nasty way ? O.O (Oh, boy! There we’ll go again… – creepy chills).

  • I think if he’s claiming him now, it’s possibly because he proved himself strong to Big Red. 🙂 At least that’s my theory!

  • Tobii

    you know, I thought this might be the case, but didn’t want it to be true so never posted what I thought 0_0 more trauma for Kyle to try and get over…hope he has the long life of a demon, because this is going to take a LONG time to recover from. however, it explains why Laampy doesn’t seem to like Duncan, lol. and omg, you have to admit the face in the last scene, though Kyle is traumatized, I thought Laamparo’s face there was adorably sweet

    • TheManBehindTheCurtain

      I wonder if the Young Protector’s have a health plan that covers seeing a psychologist??
      If so, i hope its a good one.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Lotta weekly sessions that…

      • Steven K.

        You can say that again.

        • Adam Black

          Maven probably needs a job

    • Steven K.

      Similar feelings here – on both points.

  • Sapfo

    Morning camping!

    So I have a question. Are you a super hero or a super villain?
    I thought I was a hero, but now I’ve moved into my lair, so I’m probably a super villain?

    • Holly

      anti-hero!!!!

    • mogoskier

      Why pick it just complicate things. Play a little on both fields and you become unstoppable.

      • Holly

        LIke I said, ANTI HERO

        • mogoskier

          SHHH…adding a label make you lose power.

          • Holly

            … T-T

          • Sapfo

            Oh there you are Holly, What would you like to do today? Rob a bank while saving the earth?

          • Holly

            naw

          • Sapfo

            Oh No, not the lazy kind of **nt H*r*

          • Holly

            WHAT?!

            I’m going to kill Drug Dealers. LIKE THE PUNISHER

            But androids don’t have morality.

          • Sapfo

            I think being lazy might be a better thing. Or you could do my homework while cursing. That is so badass!

          • Holly

            im not in school right now

          • Sapfo

            Well I dont want you too do your homework, What would be tha point in that?

          • Holly

            I am now confused

          • Sapfo

            Me too, so your not alone 😉

          • Holly

            Okay that is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves

          • Adam Black

            that is a sure way to get uninvited to the best parties

          • Holly

            Meh, I don’t get invited to parties anyway. I’m not really good at the social interaction part of life. I think I skipped over the tutorial or something…

          • mogoskier

            Hey no tears, not unless you want fangirls swarming all around you.

          • Holly

            ….

            >_<;;

          • Sapfo

            Cookie Holly! Muahahahaha! Sorry that happens sometimes.

      • Sapfo

        Interesting? I will take this under consideration and today I guess I’ll rob a bank and then help an old lady across the road. Always prepared!

    • Do you have a long haired cat that you pet while laughing evilly?

      • Sapfo

        I am allergic to cats. -_-
        But I do have a Tiger ^_^

        • Do you pet it while laughing evilly? It’s the petting and laughing evilly that matters.

          • Sapfo

            Yes, but it does not seam to work, probably because it is a stuffed animal

          • It’s your intentions I think that count! 😀

          • Sapfo

            In that case I feel more like a “cat”-lady. Goint up earlly in the moring to talk to my cat and my invisible friends

            “I am on the net, therefor I am!”

          • I know how that is, but I talk to my dogs, who like to yell at me to hurry up.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Funny, my cat says that.

          • Sapfo

            Is it a villian cat or a good cat?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Cats are all.

          • Sapfo

            Well I know that @disqus_5yYGRkSeuL:disqus `s cat might be evil. He is on my side 😉

          • Holly

            my tag looks fine to me it looks like @ holly

          • Sapfo

            It looks like this for me: disqus_5yYGRkSeuL

          • Holly

            yeah that happens to me all the time when I tag people

          • Chris Dangerfield

            yeah. me too.

          • Sapfo

            Bad Disqus?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            yes

          • Just refresh, it should look okay then. 🙂

          • Sapfo

            Thank you!

          • 🙂

          • Holly

            felix is sleeping on my arm

          • Sapfo

            What happened to your tag. I know your an android, but thats just strang

          • Holly

            my tag?

          • Sapfo

            Look at my comment below, that is your name when I taged you.

        • Holly

          Tigers have cat dander sweetie….

    • dereule101

      I think I would be more vigilante anti-hero? But definitely a do-gooder. I’m far too principled to be a villain IRL. In RPGs, though, I’ll play some of the most ruthless villains you’ll ever meet. >:-D

      • Sapfo

        Doing good, is …good!

        “To all you do-gooders out there, do good!”

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Against our better judgement.

    • I’d like to say I’m that sexy super-villianess with the long dark hair and random accent – but every time I play an RPG I save all the kittens from trees and adopt all the lost children…*sigh* I’m hopeless.
      So. Reluctant superhero.

      • How about an Anti-villain? You have standards. Kittens and children are off limits to being hurt.

        • dereule101

          Lawful evil!

          • Sapfo

            That reminded my of a pc-game I used to play. Baldurs gate I think. I was chaotic good most of the time.

          • Oh I’ve always wanted to play that game.

          • Sapfo

            It was good.but I got stuck on a level and could not get on. Was constantly killed.

          • Ouch, gotta hate it when that happens. >.<

          • Sapfo

            Same thing happende in assassin’s creed. played the same level for three consecutive days and then I had inflammation in my hands. It took 2 weeks before I could use them again, and then I had no time for the game. -_-

        • I can do that. Yes! I am an anti-villian – and still sexy. *diva hair flip* lol

    • WarGoddess

      If I had the powers, I would definitely be a hero. No doubt about it. I’ve never stolen a single thing in my life, and I hate hurting people and I hate it when people hurt other people. I adore comic-book heros such as Spiderman and the Avengers. Even if something really bad were to happen to me, at this point in my life I’m too set in my do-gooder treat others the way I want to be treated lifestyle. That would keep me from going over to the dark side, I think. I’m not saying that I’m a completely good person (everyone has their malicious moments), but what matters is who you choose to be. 😀

      (Even if you do happen to have a weakness for comic book bad guys such as Loki and Duncan.) 😀

      • Holly

        War Goddess do you do drawing type things?

        • WarGoddess

          Why yes I do! My drawing style is anime, but I have been known to draw realistically on rare occasions. 😀

          • Holly

            WG will you make me presents ^_^

    • Terri Sutton

      I am neutral. I care little for petty, pathetic squabbles of others.
      As long as my internet stays up, of course. Should either the “Forces of Good” or the “Forces of Evil” be responsible for it going down than heads shall roll.

      • I think I’m with you!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        They are just ‘forces’. Toying with our petty lives. So… yeah… right….

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Villains get better outfits. 😀

      • Sapfo

        And they seem to know how to do in bed. At least if you look at Duncan 😉

        • I don’t think he knows what he’s doing in bed at all.
          I mean, I don’t know what you’re doing and I won’t ask, but I’ve never heard of anyone bringing a giant eyeball into the bedroom…

          • Sapfo

            George like to watch…. he is good at it 😉

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Don’t get out much? It’s the in thing these days,

          • I am an innocent flower. (no matter what my friends say.) I have no knowledge of such things.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Then get a Giant Floating Eyeball (GFE), they tell you EVERYTHING.

          • Don’t they need a giant floating mouth to do that?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            MENTAL TELEPATHY………….

          • …Giant floating brain?
            I do love pointing out silly things and annoying the crap out of people. 😀

          • Chris Dangerfield

            No worries. AU… remember… I can run with it.

      • And better living quarters.

      • Holly

        Well I have to say in my non-existant comic the main “villain” doesn’t really have that awesome a costume. The Hero isn’t much better though. 😛

    • I started describing myself and how that would be and realized I sounded like Batman *lol*.. so yeah, guess I’d be the hero who’s almost an anti-hero – partly in a group, but the more secretive, mysterious lone wolf xD

      • Sapfo

        You can save me any day…. But I will save this virgin.

        (I got a picture of a damsel in distress. There the Virgin lies bound on the railway track and the train is moving at full speed.)

    • jreed3842

      I’d like to think I’d be a super hero! But… I don’t think I’d really be a hero… I’d be better suited as a sidekick! I’m quite a supportive person, and I work better as a helper, rather than a leader!

    • Rae Goldberg

      … with my penchant for violence?… If I ever got powers I’d most likely be a super villain… XD unless a good guy convinced me it’s better to be a hero… but I doubt that would ever happen

    • Okay. I say we all team up on our respective sides and have an epic comment war.

  • jreed3842

    jreed3842 reporting for camping!
    As always I brought s’mores!

    • YAY!

    • Holly

      sapfo wants to know below if you are good or evil

  • Tina

    *starts munching popcorn* hmm… Alex is late tonight… O,O

    MAYBE THE ROBOT NINJAS GOT HIM!!

    • davefragments

      I may have to go to sleep.
      I might simply fall asleep (is more like it)…

    • He’s at Bent-Con. I believe the signing tables and such are going until 10, but he will get the comic up.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        There were newspaper pix of people in super hero costumes lined up and waiting to get in … I suspect he’s in for a long night

      • Tina

        Ah that makes sense. We’ll see how long I can stay awake then XDD

    • Holly

      Don’t blame robots! That’s CYBERIST!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Can’t you all just turn off your sensitivity switches with a flick?

        • Holly

          No It’s a program not hardware. You have to access your harddrive and do a bunch of stuff. Plus turning it off tends to cause issues with empathy etc.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I.T. departments… always making things more complex.

          • Holly

            *glares.*

          • He has a point. 🙂

          • Holly

            I don’t have an Information Technology Department….

          • Have you looked at your manual? 🙂

          • Holly

            … It’s longer than war and peace, I just read the two page user guide.

          • HA!

          • strangeangel24601

            I have a sudden urge to re-read Artifice…

          • Holly

            HAHA

    • Jamie Dutton

      I vote for time-traveling cat pirates!

      • Tina

        What?! Are you stupid or something?! Clearly they’d be time travelling cat VAMPIRES! ((Totally meant as a joke, don’t flag me lol))

        • Jamie Dutton

          o.0
          Hope the mods aren’t feeling trigger happy tonight, lol. I knew you were joking, Tina. So no worries on my part.
          Hmm time traveling cat vampires? That would be something to see!

        • HA!

  • Holly

    Damn, I am really sleepy. I don’t know if I can make it!

  • You guys have no idea how bored I am.
    Truth or Dare anyone?

    • Holly

      TRUTH!

      • Quick question to be sure I’m not overstepping any bounds, are we allowed to ask questions dealing with sex? (I assume so considering where we are but still.)

        • Holly

          I don’t know about everyone else, but don’t ask me about it. It’s very boring if you do. *Holds up a Card with the a big letter V on it* I still have this thing.

          • mogoskier

            Yay same here, but on that note DARE

          • Holly

            THAT IS NOT HOW THIS WORKS. I have to answer my question for first. THEN You ask for a dare.

          • mogoskier

            0O0 sorry

          • Holly

            Okay Dare! Um…Write “Ducan is my Sugar Daddy” on your arm in sharpie and post the picture to us for proof!

          • mogoskier

            Can’t find a sharpie, is pen okay?

          • Holly

            Yeah pen is fine ^^

          • mogoskier

            Sorry it took so long tech hate me pic.twitter.com/ZN3MXaayyy

          • LOL awesome. 😀 Now you must T or D Danish.

          • Holly

            APPROVED!

          • Adam Black

            that makes a great hashtag. try it.

          • mogoskier

            Won’t lie, not quite sure how to do that.

          • Adam Black

            #hashtagWordsGoHereOnTwitterAndGPlus get indexed as a topic

          • Ah…well if it helps I’m with you there. >_> Anyway I was going to ask what the wildest sexual fantasy you’d ever had was, which I guess still counts. But if you outright refuse, just the strangest dream you’ve ever had.

          • Holly

            Alright this is weird but;
            I would really like to have a guy dressed in wolf ears, a tail, and a collar. He would be my puppy and i would give him commands and he would perform them. Totally submissive. However, once we got into the bedroom, the dynamic would change and he’d become dominant. However, after the first bought I’d be “angry” and he’d have to apologize. At this point it’s either he goes submissive again, or we have delicious power struggles. But the ears, tail, and collar stay. There is probably also bondage and food play(whipped cream, nutella, etc) thrown in. But the pet wolf thing is the major part.

          • That’s not so weird. Quite appealing actually. *nods* I approve of this truth. 😛

          • Adam Black

            So you want to sleep with Inuyasha?

          • As cute as Inuyasha is, I think his brother is kinda hotter

          • I definitely agree there. I always found Inu Yasha to be more adorable and Sesshomaru more sexy.

            mmmmm Sesshomaru…..

          • Indeed!

          • Holly

            NO! I want to sleep with Koga… <__>

    • Truth! ..and I don’t mind Q’s about sex, it’s a natural part of life.

      • Lol well the order right now is Holly then mogskier. 😛 Thank you for playing btw.

        • Holly

          No one is playing this right IMHO. *sighs*

          • silibub

            Ohh you know, it’s been so long since I played I forgot the rules — the one who takes the challenge gets to truth/dare the next person, yeah?

          • Holly

            Exactly. So I did one for mogo’s dare, and the next person asks mogo for truth or dare etc.

          • silibub

            Gotcha!

      • mogoskier

        OKAYYY
        If you were a super villain and or hero who would you want your sidekick to be

        • Even if I hadn’t already said that I’m kind of a Batman personality, my answer would still be Nightwing – if we talk actual comic charaters. I’ve always had a thing for Nightwing and getting to watch his ass up and close every day would be good.
          If a real person, it should be Hugh Jackman, much for the same reason *lol* But seriously, the guy can kick ass too.

          • mogoskier

            Good chooses, I approve this true.

          • Xalun K

            AAH My answer for that would have been Nightwing as well. Some excellent eye candy with a whole lot of kick-ass going on. 😀

          • Lol good to see it’s not just based off who would be the most fun to look at. Not that that’s a bad thing.
            Sili’s turn now~

    • silibub

      Once you get through Holly, mogskier, and Danish, I’ll take truth.

      • Okay, after that it’s my turn~ 😀

      • Alright. Seems I’m the one to ask you, so truth..
        Hmm, in case you still don’t have your V-card. When did you lose it?

        • silibub

          Mm, depends on how you define virginity — I haven’t had penetrative sex, but did pretty much everything else for the first time my senior year of college with some guy I barely knew. Fun bonus fact: this is how I determined that I’m definitely a lesbian — and I feel bad for the guy I was with, haha!

          • *lol*.. good answer, at least he helped you find who you are. Now you ask Xalun on her truth a bit up the comments 🙂

          • Xalun K

            Actually, it’s Amaya then me…. Amaya hasn’t even had a turn yet!

          • You guys don’t have to ask me, I started the game, it’s fine. 🙂

          • Xalun K

            Pssh yeah, you started it so you should have to suffer with the rest of us. 😛

          • Dang it. XD Lol well I’ll take truth Sili – no way to post a dare.

          • Steven K.

            Hey – congrats – sort of. I think you’re the first (at least with that story) overt or open Lesbian I’ve noticed here. Wondering how you feel about a Commander – P.P. match-up. I’d like to see “The platinum Commander” disembark,

      • Xalun K

        Ok sili, your turn to ask Amaya, who wants truth. 🙂

    • Xalun K

      I’m game… Truth for me. 🙂

      • Okay, you’ll be taking my question in a few turns. >:D

        • Holly

          *makes grumpy faces at the order*

          • What? O.O

          • Xalun K

            LOL I’m making grumpy faces simply trying to keep up!

          • Holly

            Well ideally Amaya gave me a truth, I gave Mogo a Dare, and the next person gets somerhing from Mogo. But everyone is just posting to Amaya so I don’t get HOW it works?!

          • Xalun K

            I donno, I was just saying I’ll play. I’ve been scrolling up and down for replies, it’s getting dizzying!

          • I’m sorry, I should have planned this better. @_@

          • Xalun K

            ‘Sok, it’s certainly entertaining. Hehe.

          • Wait nevermind. Ignore this comment. 😀

          • Xalun K

            Ha! In order – Holly, mogo, Danish, sili, me

          • Holly

            agreed

        • Xalun K

          BTW, I’ll be taking dare, since only one other person’s been able to take it so far. 🙂

          • mogoskier

            (Run up and hugs you) Thank you

          • Xalun K

            LOL *hugs back* you’re so welcome… I feel so bad, you *can’t* be the only one taking a dare, so I’ll take one for you. 😀 😀 😀

      • Okay, it’s a dare now? Hmm…
        I dare you to find a piece of fruit, take a picture with it (you must be in it as well) and post it on here, and if you have a FB post it on there and say something like “My new boyfriend, I luuuuurvs him.”
        I’m immature, I know.

    • jreed3842

      So! I was totally gonna play! I was gonna take a dare, then I realized I don’t have any way of taking pictures and posting it for proof. I’d take a truth, but it seems like there are LOADS of people waiting to get done. I feel like by the time anyone gets to me, the new page would be up already!
      But… If we do, I’ll take a truth. 😛

      • mogoskier

        We have a half hour, and even if the new page is up doesn’t mean we have to stop playing

        • jreed3842

          It does, however, mean I will… once it’s up I’m going to bed! Haha!

          • Happy to include you! Sorry about the wait lol…Now I’m a waitress.

      • Xalun K

        Are you still playing?? You’ve gone from having a name to ‘guest’…

        • You’ll probably have to T or D Dereule101

          • Xalun K

            I’m noticing that, I’ve already got a question prepped

          • Okay, sorry. >_<

          • Xalun K

            LOL No sorries, I was agreeing with you!

    • silibub

      Your turn Amaya! Did you want truth or dare?

      • Truth. 🙂 No way to post a dare.

        • silibub

          Okay…*mind goes blank* Erm. Tell us about a odd/creepy thing that happened to you!

          • Okay I’ve got a good one.
            Once I was at a friend’s house, and her parents had their neighbors over as well. Well she and I went outside and were sitting on the porch late in the evening and we heard the front door lock. I immediately got up and knocked loudly so they’d let us in but no one heard. We called everyone in the house, banged on all the windows and doors, but no one heard us, and the house was silent. It was like they all fell asleep at once. So she and I were in the driveway all night, chilling in the cars and talking. Her sister finally opened the door the next morning, and the neighbors weren’t inside anymore. They’d gone home around 3am. We were out there all night and never saw them.

          • silibub

            Whaaaat?! I’m impressed you guys could stay chill, I would have been freaked!

          • Lol there wasn’t much we could do about it, so we just dealt with it and used it as friend bonding time. 😛

          • silibub

            You both are braver than I am, I’d be sitting there like “Okay, I’m not saying it’s an alien abduction…BUT IT’S DEFINITELY AN ALIEN ABDUCTION.”

          • We were thinking time travel haha.

          • Xalun K

            Yeah, that is pretty damn creepy.

    • dereule101

      I’ll wimp out and chose truth 🙂

      • That’s not wimping, it’s hard to do dare on here. 😛

      • Xalun K

        Whelp, the other guy that was playing seems to have left because I took too long to post my dare or something, I don’t know. SO, here’s your question, Mr. Truth – What’s your weirdest web search? Pornographic or non-pornographic, whichever, just the weirdest.

        • dereule101

          Oh gosh, I’m searching my brain and can’t think of anything particularly weird, so I went through my search bar’s history. It was mostly research for work (politician/organization contact info) and the random things I search for (long-legged sac spider, giant cinnamon rolls, boiling water IOR). The weirdest thing I searched for was “‘pretty girl’ mask” because I wanted to go as Addie in her Pretty Girl costume from American Horror Story for Halloween. Truth or dare, somebody?

          • Psst. Click on my link and help us annoy everyone to join and we’ll keep playing. 😉

          • Xalun K

            Aw man, don’t you search for like, giant voodoo dong or something, like all us normal people do?

            Wait….

            *snicker*

          • dereule101

            Ha! No, I usually just navigate directly to giantvoodoodongs.com.

    • I’m gonna create a chat room for us all to play in. Easier to see. 😛 I’ll post the link in a minute.

  • Sapfo

    I am kind of hungry, but dare I get something. Alex?

    • I’m making food now since I wasn’t hungry last night so didn’t make dinner. So I’m taking the chance.

      • Sapfo

        I take on for the team then…..

        • I’m making chicken and pasta.. it’s totally a legit thing for breakfast 😉

          • Sapfo

            Naturally. Yesterday I ate chicken and broccoli-stir for breakfast.

            But today its sour-milk, tea and ham. So good!

    • I just got back from the show floor. It’s going to be at least 30 minutes before posting. Get something to eat. 🙂

      • Sapfo

        Thank you, Alex! ^_^

      • Jamie Dutton

        How’s the con going, Alex?

      • mogoskier

        ALEX go down the tread we are playing truth or dare

  • Xalun K

    I just watched a whole bunch of 30 Second Bunnies in the hopes that when it was over we’d have a new comic, buuuuuut…. Nope. That’s all right, I’ll either be patient or fall asleep on the couch. 😀

  • Adam Black

    since it looks like we are going to be for a late camping,

    Can
    Captain ‘Grandma ‘Taneel and her odd crew save the ( Earth ) 2nd

    their pinch ( warp) drive was stolen from?

    Ok, my first thought here is relief that at least this means Lampu is not intending to hurt/torture Kyle, at least not directly.

    But secondly, I’m sorry for Kyle. That would be enough to fry anybody’s brain and instill major issues for life. Talk about parental burden haha yeah…

    Duncan is really the idiot here. And he had thought he had tricked everybody and had everybody. Well there you go.

    I can only wonder here how all of this can possibly be resolved.

    Bent-Com sounds awesome

    I decided to personally adopt “bent” as a ID label last year.

    ( I am liking that bent-com is equally gayfriendly, geekculture and scifi )

  • Becky

    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

  • Firebirds1

    This actually explains why Duncan could use him to travel to another world/dimension. I didn’t really get the sense that Kyle was incredibly powerful, so I was wondering how that connection was made. Explains the fire, too.

  • Firebirds1

    Also I was thinking “oh, he’s kinda a good (ish) dad, for a demon” while reading this page, but then I remembered that back on page 36 he was getting a little too… friendly. that stopped that line of thought immediately

    • Miss Quinn

      Eh, seems like he was just doing it to screw with Duncan, who obviously cares at least little for Kyle, even if he cares about himself more.

    • OnyxLight

      What Miss Quinn said and plus… well he is a demon

  • Yukiness

    Ah, that does sound very plausible also

  • Syncx

    Wait could he actually be Kylie’s farther o.o

  • lol…that one is pretty funny…

  • OnyxLight

    My Darling SON!… Ho shit O.o

  • OnyxLight

  • Lindsey Amethyst Hampton

  • Thank you! I really do want to keep this space as friendly and comfortable for you all (while still allowing for vigorous debate on issues that interest you.) I hope the comments section here continues to feel that way to you and we keep hearing from you! 😀
