  • *Chews avidly on scone* … Ooh, so intense.

    • Nice snag, Danish! Best New Years Eve present! ^__^

      • My last V of the year *pets*

        • Sapfo

          *quick replacement V with mouse!*
          Happy new year!
          *And Sapfo runs away!!!*

  • davefragments

    yay – 77 bonus pages.
    And It’s the HAPPY NEW YEAR page

  • davefragments

    Smack that dude into the ground

  • In coming!!

  • Wait! Was Fluke pointing to which minion he was taking on? Go Fluke!

  • Sapfo

    Fire, water, forest and …

  • Anni on next page: Ouch!

    • D. Garrett

      lol! ikr!

  • Of course when I had to go to the ladies room….

    • davefragments

      Blame it on the spy-yet-ific TSA.
      They’ve bugged you

  • Sapfo

    Why do I get the feeling that after that water fist hits Duncan, he will be standing there like a wet cat, hair hanging down his, and pissed of. Not hurt at all and ready to take on Tsunami

    • It would actually be interesting to see Duncan undone. 😀

    • I actually think Duncan is looking at Kyle to figure out something to say to stop the fight… at least momentarily. That’s the ‘longing from afar we need to talk’ look…

    • HA! I had the exact same thought 😉

    • D. Garrett

      i think it might just knock him off his feet for a few seconds.

  • No hesitation, Tsu! Put everything you have behind that punch! *fingers crossed*

  • D. Garrett

    i wonder if tsu stays pruney? ha.

    • davefragments

      I never thought about that. Maybe he has scales or fish skin?

      • D. Garrett

        but it looks like normal skin. maybe its not and is altered for his super power.

  • joshsusser

    Oh gosh, what happened to Tsunami’s glowing tattoos? Have they run out of magic juice?

    • Good catch. I’ll get Vero on that tomorrow. 😀

      • joshsusser

        Wow, I feel like I just won a no-prize 🙂

    • Anna Calloway

      I thought the same thing!

  • Alex Q

    Worth the camping and the wait, show them bad guys! Great end to the year. Have a safe and Happy New Year everyone, enjoy the goodies left over from the camping, and I shall quietly camp with you all in 2015. Also, shout out to the awesome team who brings us this every week. Keep up the wonderful work!

    • D. Garrett

      cya 2015!

    • Thank you, fellow Alex! You have a great (and safe!) New Years too! 😀

  • Both Fluke and Commander taking out 2 minions at once. Nice.

  • Jeabro21

    Is it wrong to cheer for the bad guys??

    • Klaus


    • silibub

      Nnnn…uh…not openly?

      • Closet cheer leading… mmmmkay.

        • silibub

          *quickly shuts the door to conceal the neat row of minion robes, leans against it casually* No idea what you mean.

          • (first edition too!)

          • silibub

            (It’s…they’re…collector’s items!)

          • (they even have the minion names embroidered on the collar)

          • silibub

            (Of course, you don’t want to find yourself wearing some other nasty cultist’s robes, do you? I had these troph–items laundered before I even touched them.)

          • Well, they live in the collection closet, regardless. With the other priceless items like Sircea’s cod-piece and…


            No, I didn’t mean that… we don’t know where that went, do we? It just went missing. I mean… go figure?

          • silibub

            Ha! Haha! Weird how stuff just disappears, right?! Left socks, car keys, spare sets of platinum bikini armor…

            Although if I did have a certain item, I wouldn’t keep it in some musty old closet — it would have its own room!

          • Yep… pedestal and spotlight even……. I mean hypothetically speaking, of course.

          • (nope, you want to wear your own robe. I need the name of that dry cleaners name, because he did a great job of riding the robes of the water and blood stains)

    • Tahir Raines

      I’m cheering for them, too.

      • silibub

        I just want to see some vengeance on behalf of Sircea’s cape. It did nothing but look stylish and dramatic — certainly not deserving of a fiery death.

        • Hey… it’s a villain cape. THAT’S a choice, NOT a preference. It made its choice and now it reaps the rewards. The Goddess doesn’t like villain ca….

          (ding dong)

          Excuse me? WHAT? I’m online…. oh…

          Sorry, it seems the hyperbole/bigot police are at my door… I’ll be right back…

          • silibub

            Their response time is scary good.

        • Tahir Raines

          Sircea will have her vengeance I’m sure.

  • silibub

    Maybe Spooky’s taking care of the hostages now that the Protectors have had to reorganize a little. Or he might be gearing up to further destabilize/ destroy the bone circle.

    I love how Amanda’s cracking those minions’ heads together like coconuts, while Fluke does some kind of acrobatic pirouette in the background. Nice styles!

  • joshsusser

    I do like how the Commander’s psychic hair isn’t mussed at all, even though her physical hair is flying all over the place. Such composure!

  • Dudes in robes haven’t done a lot of team training. Lazy evil minions.

  • Tsunami has an interesting face in that last panel and is it just me or do his eyes seem to not be looking and Anni? Does something off to Anni’s side have his attention? Is he catching a glimpse of PP?

  • Saxon_Brenton

    *Now* the Commander says to spread out and keep them off balance? I predicted last page that Commander and Fluke should be advancing down the far side of the prison box. I mean, I was *wrong*, but the tactic is till valid (pouts). And we’re still waiting for Spooky…

  • Well, the Duncanator is in a bit of a bind. How does one actually catch a giant water fist? Can one even punch back at a water fist?

    • D. Garrett

      with how close it is, theres no time to duck. all he can do is try to brace.

      • silibub

        He’s super fast — he might be able to duck under it?

        • Keneu

          Or jump over it, maybe.

          • D. Garrett


          • Keneu

            xDD Now I’m imagining the Annihilator catching the key and scoring a basket like Michael Jordan.

          • D. Garrett


          • joshsusser

            I’m thinking the same thing. The fastest escape is a jump upward. I’m half-expecting this to be a setup so that Spooky can grab Annihilator when he’s 30′ up, then keep him there.

        • D. Garrett

          if he does that, ive greatly underestimated him.

          • silibub

            I just figured, since he was able to sidestep Kyle’s flames at one point during the prologue, he might be able to dodge this. But then again, the AquaFist is pretty much right in his face already.

    • He’s, like, super strong. Remember, he’s spent the day in an argument with her Platnumness and she sorta bitch-slapped him, it’s been minions and blood for hours, then there was all the boring memorization of spells and incantations and now this.

      I’ll just bet he lets that wet-fist (oh that sounded wrong… oh well) wash around him and use it to freshen up. Right? I mean a villain wants to feel pretty when Laampros is about to appear.

      I’m just sayin’.

      • silibub

        The middle of a battle is the ideal time for a power shower.

        • So true… what if he gets close to Kyle later. I don’t think Kyle’s that into… well… villain-odor… you know.

          Hey, it’s a THING. A hero-villain THING. However, 18 is a bit young to be into THINGS. TRUE?

      • And have his boots sloshing? Oh somehow I doubt it.

  • Keneu

    Shouldn’t Tsunami’s tattoos glow?Also, I’d like to fistbump the water fist, but I would probably end crushed.

    • Or at least MOIST and disappointed! 🙂

      • Keneu

        Now that you say it, that’s even worse! or better, depending how you look at it. xD

  • TwilightDreamer

    Well, THAT’S certainly going to hurt if it hits Duncan…. ;P

  • Jen Roberts

    Normally I’d be a big ball of squee about Commander wrecking some minions but I am currently a big ball of snot and pain instead.

    *biohazard-suited hugs for you all*
    oh ps: Damn, Fluke is limber.

    • NURSE… more nyquil STAT!

      • D. Garrett

        and lemon tea and chicken soup.

        • Jen Roberts

          Noodle soup & grilled cheese was lunch! :9

          • D. Garrett


          • Yeah… when sick, that’s a meal I will eat… REPEATEDLY! Get well soon!!!!

      • Jen Roberts

        Yeaaaah, the Big F***ing Q is gonna be necessary for me to sleep. I just realized that all the food we had was of the “cook a meal” variety and I am not cooking when I feel like this. So some snacks, and THEN NyQuil, really. I mean it this time.

      • Sapfo

        nope, I am not on the clock right now. Sorry. have some more tea

    • Sapfo

      Take care little ball of snot. Hope you feel better soon.

    • purplefoxglove

      The fictional fangirls were right!

      I hope you get well soon 🙂

  • Tahir Raines

    It looks like Tsunami is keeping an eye on the Kyle/Sircea fight. His protective nature is adorable sometimes.

    • No offense, but I doubt his concern is for Red Hot’s well-being.

      • Jen Roberts

        I dunno. I don’t think he wants Kyle hurt. It seemed to me like it was more “tone down teh gay stuff ’round the kid” back on the ship.

        • I saw that as more of an excuse, frankly. The whole “not in front of kids” doesn’t hold water (no pun intended) and is a bigoted attitude anyway.

          • Jen Roberts

            YMMV, of course. But I saw Gordon’s homophobia as being a bit subtler. And yeah, Kyle is partially responsible for this mess, and yeah, Kyle is gay, and yeah, Kyle is now 18… but Gordon’s had years of watching out for him, protecting him, having his back. Even if he’s now all “ew squick teh gay!”, old habits die hard, especially in the heat of battle.

          • Tahir Raines

            I do think that Tsu is homophobic, but I also believe that he does genuinely care about Kyle and would prefer him safe. He would also just prefer him to be straight unfortunately.

  • The stage manager must really be annoyed with Spooky right now.

    • We might need Mitch to jump in to cover for what Spooky is supposed to be doing right now.

  • Tahir Raines

    The Young protectors seem to so far be winning. By winning, I mean that they are doing what they planned, i.e. keeping the baddies distracted. I feel like Sircea may be the biggest threat to this since her magical power is still a fairly unknown variable. If she finds a way to be free of Kyle’s attention, things will get bad fast.

  • Ha! Commander is pulling a Three Stooges! Nice!

  • Jen Roberts

    also, this is such an action figure page. I can totally see them all as action figures here.

    • TwilightDreamer

      Collect them all! ;P

      • …who has the Poke balls? XD

        • Jen Roberts

          … I’m sick so I’m not answering that question. But let’s be honest, I have a pretty sick mind even when I don’t have a cold.

        • TwilightDreamer

          rofl XD don’t know, but if you find any, throw a few my way 😛

      • Jen Roberts

        I would if I could!

  • davefragments

    I have thoughts on this page but I am falling asleep.
    See y’all tomorrow.

    • D. Garrett

      whoo hoo. ty. 😀

  • i assume anhi’s gonna duck out of the way of that aqua punch, unless spooky manages to wall off anhi’s escape routes

    • I like your attitude. Let Spooky step in, so Tsu can do some smacking! YES!!!

      • (alternatively, gordon could Suggestively Flex for anhi..
        ..surely this should pose as an adequate-enough distraction, for the ~0.67 seconds needed for the smack to connect)

        • Oh you are diabolical… and probably right. Duncan needs a little right now. He’s clearly tense. HA!

          • one’s not getting laid is one of the top 5 reason why one becomes evil. to begin with.

            (true story, ambassador!)

          • Cake, cake, cake, horny… DEATH!

            That is sooooo true. If certain dictators had gotten laid more often, millions might have lived. Wow. The things we learn on TYP!

          • we can thank TVTropes (and by extension, raocow) for intersecting our paths!

        • David Welbourn

          Yes, where’s Flex Mentallo when we need him? “Hero of the Beach” indeed.

  • So PP got her cape flambeed, Anni is about to look like a wet rug and the minions could have needed a fight instruction or ten.

    Right now things aren’t looking so good for the evil side, and that actually worries me. People with their back against the wall can lash out if a bad way.
    Sircea with her back against the metaphorical wall.. uhm.. a semi-insane powerful being with a goddess complex.

    Am I the only one who fears her with a ‘hissy fit’?

    • silibub

      I definitely wouldn’t want to be in Kyle’s position right now.

      Another thing that concerns me is the possibility that a surge in arcane power from the presence of demons will push Sircea over into genuine insanity. The last time a big ritual was botched, Sircea was weakened and all the lesser (mortal) magic users went insane — now that she isn’t at full power and has lost her immortality, I worry that she might be vulnerable to that outcome in a way she wasn’t before.

      • Samurai Jack

        If she’s not vulnerable, Spooky might be…

      • Of course, that may be the push that’s needed to get Duncan to switch sides – if the team wil let him…

    • D. Garrett

      makes me think of the movie “beautiful creatures.”

  • Guys, this is GREAT. I love this big open format and a Mitch-eye view of the big smack out. It’s both classic and as new as the YP are! Great stuff.

    P#1: Love that first panel. Love voice-of-goddess Amanda stating the obvious! Love Tsu just waving in to confront Duncan. (Who we know wants to confront Kyle, but NO… he’s busy… HA!). Love Kyle blasting away at Sircea and her singed evil cape… Sorry Sircea… Prince of Hell… he’s HOT. Love that the minions have knives — obviously held in their uncut palms. Right? Love the elaborate mechanical super-structure holding up the old fashioned wooden stairs. They build these hell-sphincters to LAST. Nice! Love the little stone totems and the dirt area so the minions don’t wear out the grass. So thoughtful. Love Amanda moving in for the kill. Just good stuff in the BIG VIEW.

    P#2: Hells YEAH. Bruce Lee Fluke! Kick, smash, pow! And look at Amanda knock some minion heads together. Love them both. That’s rockin’. Ok, I’m not sure what to think about Kyle & Tsu’s fire and water sorta canceling each other out in the background. Is that a metaphor for their sexual-preference antagonism??? Hmmmm… time will tell.

    P#3: Okay this panel just SLAMS!!! Love Duncan’s, ‘uh oh’ face. Well nothing hurts him… oh yeah… except Kyle’s fire and Laampros’ nails drawing pretty pictures on his arms. I wonder if it’s like stubbing your toe and waiting that nano-second to see how much it will hurt? Maybe Tsunami packs a punch. Duncan will have to wait a few days and see with the rest of us. I love Tsunami’s hopeful face. He’s putting all he has into this puncheroo… oh the hope.

    This page is a big battle special and it’s clear how much work you three have put into it. A perfect page to bid adieu to 2014 with. Thank you Alex, Adam and Veronica for a truly fine year of art and story-telling. I feel well and truly gifted with your talents. Happy New Year to you all.

    • Sapfo

      And a Happy new Year to you to Chris. Thank you for being such a great person. Lot´s of love to you and your loved ones.

      • You also dear strawberry… may 2015 be everything you could desire… even if that mean lots of elf-men with big eyelashes!


        • Elf men~ <3
          A happy New Year to both of you. I might have to fight Sapfo for a couple of those hot elf men *pets V's* 😉

          • Careful Danish V-smugness is most unbecoming and I’m sure our Sapfo will be fierce in the new year. No rest for for the wolf! But a very happy 2015 coming to you. xo

    • Klaus

      About those details in panel one: Why does the stairs need support that sturdy? What is expected to walk down or up them? The standing stones seem intended to guide/channel/herd something from the stairs to the bone ring or vice versa. What? According to the deal the Annihilator and PP will bring only Laampros to Earth. It is up to him to get his forces (which are … considerable) here once he gets here.

    • Hehe. Very glad you like the big action page, Chris. 🙂 What happens on this page and the next was originally planned as a double-page spread, but in the thumbs, Adam and I realized that this was one of those unusual occasions where it would actually feel more epic as two separate pages. So glad to hear it’s working for you.

      A very Happy New Year to you too! 😀

  • I will be back to comment more on the page in the new year, but now I really need a nap so I can be more well rested for the big moment tonight *Can’t comprehend that 2015 only 16 hours away*

    Don’t think I’ll have much time to look back in before I leave my place later, so for now I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. I hope you all make it well into the new year and that the year to come will be as nice to you as possible.

    No matter where you are when the clock striked midnight, feel that I’m there to give you a virtual hug. You’ve been such an awesome comunity to be a part of. I’ve had so much fun talking to you, many also elsewhere than the comments here.

    A HUGE thank you to Alex, Vero and Adam for your continuous work to give us this great comic. It’s been a joy following and I look forward to continue doing this.

    • And it’s a joy having you as such a great member of our community, Danish! Happy New Year to you as well! 🙂

  • Klaus

    Happy new year everybody. See you next year.

  • Derkins

    Really not sure where Spooky is, but if the commander isn’t worried about it, neither am I.
    Also, I love Kyle’s little flamethrower stance in the last panel there. :3

  • Kate G

    “Cold-cock” the Annihilator. *snickers like a little kid* I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ll be an adult. Just give me a minute.

    Does anyone notice how if Kyle didn’t have fire spouting out of his hands he’d have the classic “zombie” pose kind of in the last panel?

    Come on, Anni, are you scared of a stiff glass of water?

    And isn’t it not New Year’s Day for another (looks at clock) 22 hours?

    Oh, right, time zones. XD

  • I’m sorry but…but…there’s a fisting joke here somewhere and I just…

  • Mary Klemzak

    Tidal Fist. My new favorite thing.

    Also, aren’t Tsunamis epic awesome tats supposed to GLOW when he’s activated?

    Also, nobody’s gonna comment about the Commander and Spooky kicking names and taking ass? Wait. That’s not right…

    Anyway, hope everyone is having a great holiday and may 2015 be epic and awesome!

  • Falconfly

    Why doesn’t he just bloodbend him and gets this over with?

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Actually, that’s a very good question that I know I haven’t considered before. Okay, let’s think on that. I’m reminded of the quip “Blood is only just barely thicker than water.” But I don’t think that’s likely to make much difference in this case. I mean, if we’re worrying about all the extra organic molecules in blood, then realistically Tsunami would also be having problems using his hydrokinetic powers on the river water as well. After all, it’s hardly pure H2O either; there’ll be a lot of suspended silt, microscopic plant life, small (and maybe not so small) aquatic animals, etc.

      Hmm. Maybe Tsunami’s powers are derived from magic, and it’s the *symbolism* of blood as a special life giving that separates it from plain old river water. Or maybe Tsumani’s essentially gentle nature (hinted at back on page 71 when he made the comment about not killing anyone with collateral damage) means that he’s got a psychological block about manipulating people’s internal body fluids. (In that regard he may be like Red Hot, who was only able to wound Annihilator with his fire powers after he got sufficiently angry with him.)

      • Tyler Griffin

        Or… maybe there are just some VERY strict guidelines and policies in place covering the use of lethal force? Even when it’s the PP and Anni in the fray, the whole “shoot to kill” is a very slippery slope for government agents. And while we know that the YP are a not fully sanctioned, they wouldn’t be tolerated if they made a habit of flouting the rules.

  • Pikinanou

    awesome page! I love it 🙂

  • Chia

    Happy New Year from Australia! 🙂 Hope 2015 holds great things for all of you. Thanks again Alex for all you and your team do, looking forward to more fantastic story-telling in 2015! Best wishes to you all, take care of yourselves and see you around the boards! 🙂

    • davefragments

      Father Time brings the New Year first to Australia and then marches across Asia and Europe to the New World.
      And the word is Happy New Year and many more happy ones after that.

    • Happy New Year Chia (in 11 hours and 12 minutes here)

      • Chia

        Happy New Year Doki hon. Hope this year brings you more computer stability than last year and all the shits and giggles your lovely heart would ever want for. 🙂

    • Happy New Year, Chia! Very glad to have you with us! 🙂

  • WarGoddess

    A certain magic user is missing from this picture here………

  • davefragments

    And the word is Happy New Year and many more happy ones after that. It’s 14 hours away doe me, yet.
    And since it is only 22 degrees outside (Minus five and a half below in C)
    I am staying in my warm and cozy house and celebrating.

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      Looks loke I’m staying in too 10 degrees out there right now after a morning low of -17…..God! I hate winter!!! Oh! and Happy New Year

      • davefragments

        Stay warm and Happy New Year

  • Jeffrey Jacobson

    Where the heck is Spooky? He was supposed to be doing about eight things at once.

    And how do Fluke’s luck powers work?

    • Tahir Raines

      IIRC, he can hoard good luck by personally experiencing bad luck. That way he could give good luck to someone in need. However, he can also get good luck for himself by others experiencing bad luck. It’s like a scale of good and bad luck. He controls where the luck goes, but it still needs to come from somewhere (e.g. good luck for others= bad luck for him; bad luck for others = good luck for him).

    • Richard Grant Muir

      Spooky needed to get the drop on the Annihilator so the villain couldn’t use his throwing stars on Spooky. I think Tsunami is distracting the Annihilator so Spooky can disarm him sneakily, like with an invisibility spell or something.

  • Soirbleu

    RIP Sircea’s cape. Gone, like all the good egg rolls. (…sniff, sniff…)

    EDIT: sorry if someone made that joke already…

  • Derkins

    The way the water is done is really impressive. It’s so hard to draw, but this is just great.

  • Marko

    Jajajaja Tsunami’s doge face in that last panel

    “Wow… such wet… so water… very fist…wow”

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    This is awesome for the last day of a very hard year for me….After sinking so very low through this year….I have hope that next year will be a much better, brighter place for me! HAPPY NEW YEAR! 10 and a half hours to go!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I hope this new year will be great for you, Wayne!

  • fujoshifanatic

    Great page on which to end the year–so much action, and so much to look forward to in the next one! I hope everyone has a happy and safe New Year, and may this one be filled with joy, success, and SUPER-STRENGTH hugs all around! 😀

  • Tahir Raines

    Has anyone here played Coming Out On Top yet? Today’s the last day to get the $5 dollar off price ( It was a surprisingly great and enjoyable game. A nsfw gay dating sim that still manages to be more plot than porn in all the best ways. Ian is my favorite route.

    How do we know the portal isnt supposed to be burned?

    • Or at least made out of fire retardant materials… safety FIRST! Right?

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Directions on the side: “Keep away from fire”


  • Xalun K

    Oh man, kicking ass and taking names. Love it. The last panel – Tsunami’s fist and Kyle’s pose are just beautiful together (even with Anni’s startled face in the panel, lol). And the action shots of Fluke and Commander? WONDERFUL. Y’all never cease to amaze me.

    Also, Merry (belated) Christmas, and Happy New Year, everyone! <3

    • Belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you as well Xalun!

  • Klaus

    Alex, do you really mean that pages 98 and 100 will both be posted January 21st?

    • bronakopdin

      I guess he mde a c/p error and meant January 28th 😀

    • No. 🙂

      Thank you. Fixed!

  • bronakopdin

    Happy New Year everyone 😀

    and I’m still looking out for Spooky here ^^
    but I love how Amanda headbumps those two minions it reminds me a little of this

    • Happy New Year bronakopdin!

      • bronakopdin

        huggles 🙂

  • Cydney Sabin

    Every time I hear the phrase “cold-cock” I think of a rooster-cicle.

  • purplefoxglove

    Happy New Year, guys! I wish you all the very, very best for 2015 🙂

    • Happy New Year purplefox!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Thank you, and for you as well! <3

  • Sapfo

    Happy birthday 2015, I hope you will grow up to a nice year.

    • Happy New Year Sapfo!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Happy New Year, Sapfo! Hope this one is a good one!

  • SSF

    Damn at Amanda butting those minions heads together. Would not want to be in a fist fight with her.

  • december

    Love Kyle’s dance-move stance in the last panel!

  • Maus Merryjest

    Spooky, where are you? O_O

    • Waiting to make his dramatic entrance of course!

  • Tyler Griffin

    I wanna know what the soundtrack is that Kyle plays in his head in this situation that he finds himself in such a majestic, and porntastic pose in that last panel. Bet his internal background music is epic

    • Tyler Griffin

      Also, kudos to everyone involved for finding an amusing middle ground between the two extremes of “Their costumes are impervious to damage” and “Seams, shmeams, it rips at the boobs” with the Burning of the Cape.

  • *sigh* I think Mitch is gonna die by sacrificing himself to save Kyle. Never reveal big character points before directly into battle – it’s an old trope and you’re basically setting yourself up to be a “Red Shirt” on Star Trek.

    • That is the thing with Alex….he always surprises us.

      ……and MITCH IS NOT ALLOWED TO DIE. PERIOD. He may get injured, he may get badly injured BUT NO DEATH FOR MITCH! I WON’T ALLOW IT.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Here here. Of course, Flyboy has already inverted one trope on us to our pleasant surprise (the ‘I’ve seen the movies where the kid disobeys orders in order to prove himself. I’m not that guy.’ speech). Let’s amuse ourselves by imaging a scene that starts off like Jake speculates, but when Flyboy takes what would be the blow that would kill anyone else, he just stands there with an irritated look on his face and says “Ow” sarcastically.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          He’s impervious to all harm – JUST LIKE A BIRD!!!

    • fujoshifanatic

      Oh! I was using my phone to respond and somehow my reply got attached to the comment above! I would copy and paste, but you can just scroll up to see it! 🙂

  • davefragments

    I’ve just been battling in some other disqus comment stream in preparation for tonight’s page.
    I hope we see TYP’s saving the “blood sacrifice” from a bloody, well uh, sacrifice.
    Speculation: Maybe Mitch is Kenny, and Laampros is satan, and the Platinum Priestess is Saddam. It’s just a thought.

    • fujoshifanatic

      I refute your speculation! Alex has already said he is not about those old tropes everyone else uses, including Bury Your Gays (look it up on TVTropes if you don’t know). He has a knack for creating plot twists that’ll throw you in loops you never expected, so I know there will be more than enough drama without having to rely on a dead gay kid. 🙂

    • fujoshifanatic

      Sorry Dave, my reply was meant for Jake below! Dang phone!

      • davefragments

        I was puzzled. It seemed a little off.
        It’s the silly plot of SOUTH PARK: Bigger, Longer, Uncut
        And if you remember, Saddam was romancing and using Satan, and Kenny clued him into the error of his relationship.
        The more I think about it, the more it seems that KYLE should have been Kenny and Duncan would have been Satan character and Sircea was Saddam.

        Too many gender options there.

  • In for camping. Was hanging out briefly at a TH chat but there was a note they’re postponing that update.

    *looks around* How is everyone? I’m going to grab my dinner and be back.

    • Evening, Gryphon! I’m taking a small break before eating dinner considering I just got through the making and feeding of my dogs’ dinner.

    • *hugs* Hello Gryphon!

    • …preview of HQ!! Oikawa zine got emailed to us tonight… *blushes like mad* you are all going to LOVE this thing. Hopefully it inspires some more HQ!! watching/loving…

  • That tidal fist is hella cool.

  • Hello, I’m doing an all-nigther, if I can make it all the way through, so I’ll see if i crash before the page is up so I’m here early 😉

    • Hello Danish sweetie!

    • I know I’ll be up late night too… slept 12 hours last night ;__;

      • I passed out earlier and about an 1.5 hour nap.

      • I so didn’t. I got a 2½ hour nap in the evening and hope that will be enough after the two days of little sleep (I have a feeling it’s going to be hard).

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Good luck, Danish!

  • It’s snowing again… so I’ve been doing laundry, watching Psycho-Pass and going to try some writing tonight while waiting. Head cold is finally starting to go away!

    • Glad you’re feeling better. It’s cold here but by California Bay Area standards cold. Probably shorts weather for you XD

      I need to do some writing later myself.

      • I saw SoCal had a LOT of snow the other day though! Freaky weather!

        • ‘Bout 49 degrees F right now. A bit chillier than we’re used to.

    • DC

      I wouldn’t mind a bit of snow, right now it is about 39 degrees C/102 F.

      • Dayum.. I don’t think it’s ever been so hot here at least not in 150 years.

      • I will trade you! I’m already done with winter… >__<

  • I am here to camp but I will not be able to do much besides sit here and moan about my tummy. My monthly visitor has arrived and I’ve got the cramps from hell. Sorry for the grossness guys.
    Sigh. So what have I missed?

    • *hugs* I was cramping for the last session. I feel your pain. *hands over leftover chocolate*

    • Yup you need chocolate! Hope you feel better soon, and monthly ‘friends’ need a kick to the curb most days. Think we’re in for more fire n’ water 😉

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Hi everybody! I’m back! Hope you all had a great Christmas if you celebrate it, and happy new year to everyone!

    • *hugs stick* YAY!!!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        *hugs Doki back* It’s great to be back!

    • davefragments

      hey, you’re back.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hi dave!

    • Hey, Stick! Welcome back.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hi Gryphon! Thank you!

    • Hi Sticky!! 😀

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hi AJ! How’s 2015 treating you so far?

    • Hello and WB! I will have a better 2015 once this cold is gone…

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Thank you! I hope your cold goes away soon!

  • davefragments

    Pretzels and cheesy dip.
    That’s all I have tonight.

    • Just pizza tonight for me.

      • what kind of pizza?

        • Pepperoni and olive

          • Olives *bleh* you can have that pizza. Olives/Cottage Cheese = run away!

          • XD I will keep my olives to myself!

          • I’m with you on olives!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I’m not a fan of olives either. ^_^

          • You can have that pizza all to yourself! ^_^

          • DC

            I like olives on pizza. Add some sundried tomatoes, spinach leaves and feta cheese and it’s yum!

    • Had chili and now chocolate mug cake and ice cream.

      • I’m in the mood for dessert, myself. Ice cream sounds good!

        • davefragments

          cake with lots of icing

          • And cake is never ever ever wrong. Especialy with lots of icing.

          • davefragments

            Enough icing to induce a minor sugar coma!
            wink, wink

          • Man after my own heart!! 😀

        • It’s rare you can go wrong with ice cream.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Mmm, chocolate mug cake!

        • The perfect dessert when you don’t want to make a whole cake!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Plus it gives me such a gleeful rush of power – I just put ingredients in a mug, mixed them up, and microwaved them and – BINGO! CAKE! Tremble before my might! Mwah ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!

          • Yes! My dad has started calling himself the cake lord.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That makes me very happy.

    • WOohoo! Pretzels and cheesy dip!

      • davefragments

        And some sort of strange pink jello.
        Flavor unknown to my mouth.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Mmm, mystery flavor.

    • I was good and had some fruit… but just made coffee and have danish apple/coffee cake (yum!)

  • Page up shortly. 🙂
