430 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter Three—Page 98

And that’s how Spooky Jones plays the game of snaps!

Since the last update, y’all blasted past $2000/month over at the Patreon Page, which meant that the first Milestone Goal was triggered! Starting with this page, Patrons will get to see the pencil art along with the colored art for each update! And Patrons who chose to receive the Special Digital Rewards (the vast majority) were also sent their very first Sneak Preview Sunday update, where they got to see a shirtless, flexing Fluke (and next Sunday will get to see a special, sneak peek image of Flyboy!)

We’re now at $2223/month with 210 Patrons (Woot!) which means we’re just $777/month away from turning The Young Protectors into a permanent twice-weekly comic and only $277/month away from unlocking the safe-for-work Digital Kickstarter Rewards for Patrons. There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron, and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits!),

please take a moment to watch the video on my Patreon page and consider becoming a Patron. 🙂

Oh, and…

***THIS IS A BONUS PAGE!***

Our eightieth bonus page in a row! (Woo hoo!) And thanks to your generous donations, and in addition to our regular Saturday updates, we’ve got two more bonus pages “in the bank”: one on Wednesday, January 28th (page 100!), and the last one (page 102!) will be on Wednesday, February 4th!

I want to send out my warmest thank yous out to all the new Patrons who have joined in the last week. I’m simply bowled over by the kind words you’ve sent me and your amazing support. As you can see in the comments below, a bunch more folks have had a blue, silver, or gold YP badge added to their Disqus avatars, which means they are a Patron. If you see once of these folks, please join me in extending my thanks for directly supporting the making of this comic! And please also send out a special thanks to those exceptionally generous backers who are on the Leaderboard of Awesome page (which I will work to make prettier over time). You all ROCK!

So! Looks like Spooky’s is helping The Annihilator explore a little quiet time. (I wonder how that’ll be for him. Any suggestions for his thought bubble in that last panel?) Meanwhile, it looks like Kyle and Tsunami are keeping The Platinum Priestess on her toes. Gosh, I wonder what’ll happen next?

Tune in Saturday to find out! I hope to see you there! 😀

If you particularly enjoy any of these pages and use Facebook, please click the Like button on that page. It’s useful to know what’s working and it helps me get the word out!
  • I’m going to have all of Spooky’s babies forever … or at least until thursday! He’s soooooo awesome!

    • Nice! Stubborn page being stubborn XD

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Dang it! Congratulations, Chris!

  • davefragments

    I didn’t expect that to happen.

    • DC

      I don’t think Duncan did either.

      • davefragments

        Damn right

  • OMG Spooky! That was perfect!!!!

  • DC

    ha ha that silenced him

  • Weeee! I love you Spooky!

  • OMG, Go, Spooky!! Hahahaha! That was great!

  • Someone, somebody please draw Anni doing a swag walk. I need it now.

  • syllibub

    Damn, Spooky! Such gumption.

    And Sircea, what the fresh heck are you doing? This is no time for Twister.

    • Ahahahahahahah…. Blue…. Six…. (or something sorta like that.)

      • *cough left hand yellow cough*

        • syllibub

          I don’t think “left hand ominous blood key orb” is covered in the rule sheet…

          • Bloody handprint green…

          • stickfigurefairytales

            No fair! I can’t reach the blood key orb from my side!

          • Super villain Twister (TM) with all new colors for your good-fighting playing experience!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            “Right foot on unfathomable terror and madness orange!”

          • YAS

          • HEY KIDS!!!! NOW PLAY TWISTER WITH THE “GREAT OLD ONES!!!” — Right Tentacle Yellow!

            Now you to can create terror and madness right in your own living room. GET IT TODAY!!!!1

          • I’m sensing some merchandise happening from this comic now…XD

          • Board games, yay!

        • Yes… indeed… THAT!

    • LOL!

      It’s always time for Twister…

  • Ha! He kept Duncan from monologuing.

    • He does talk a lot 🙂

    • syllibub

      It’s for his own good, really. Does monologuing ever end well?

      • *puts on nerdy glasses*
        Well actually, yes. Since super villains are generally egotistical they NEED to monologue to feel validated. So, if one is aware of this, one can get a super villain monologuing and keep said villain distracted whilst the hero – or his partners, sidekicks, ect. – execute a secret plan of attack or they escape the villain’s clutches.
        Which, doesn’t exactly apply here, but it needed to be said.
        *tosses glasses and slinks away to hide*

        • syllibub

          End well for the villain, I should have said! Good points.

      • Not really. 😀 Except in this case! Now Spooky won’t get distracted from his eyes crossing from tedium and allowing the bad guys to get the upper hand..

        “Yeah yeah, you’re going to tear me apart and toss each part into a different pit of carnivorous creatures and then dance around in my blood while singing “Shake it Off” by Taylor Swift.

        • You had me right until …. taylor swift……………..

          • ??? She’s a sweetie.

          • But isn’t that how bad guys do it? And that it is Taylor Swift. Talk about torture by earworm.

          • syllibub

            I’ve had “Blank Space” in my head for a while now. It’s basically soothing background noise at this point.

          • “The Girl From Ipanema” is playing at La Mason du Sylibub?

          • syllibub

            Something like that!

          • Earworms no matter which song can be torturous especially when you only know two lines of the lyrics. 😐

          • Adam Black

            did someone say “earworm?”

          • I don’t believe anyone did. 😛

          • Adam Black

            dont suffer needlessly when the cure is free https://plus.google.com/+AdamBlack/posts/MJKtu49rVf7

          • Actually that’s pretty catchy. LOL

          • Adam Black

            So said every guy . I think Celebs just date her to be in her sad songs

          • HA!

          • Adam Black

            has John Meyer dated her yet?
            he must have. That would give her 2 albums of breakup material

      • davefragments

        Only if the hero does it.

    • I love him forever!!!!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I’m so glad that Spooky didn’t do the thing you almost always see characters doing where they pull the weapon out of the wound. It mostly just increases blood loss.

    • (a four page debate ensues about whether Duncan uses poisoned throwing stars, and how long the poison would take to make spooky unconscious… considering his time in hell vs his adrenaline rush due to being in battle…………

      • Thanks for summarizing that lol. Now we don’t have to argue. XD

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I was going to say that poisoned throwing stars would be a bad idea since they could easily injure the person wielding them instead, but then I remembered that Duncan is invulnerable under most circumstances.

        • And if Duncan had spent a goodly amount of time developing an immunity to iocane powder…. but that’s another story…

          • stickfigurefairytales

            😀

          • Are we really back here again?

          • Adam Black

            yup

          • I’m gonna change every line in the movie – or book – that says “man in black” to adam black.

          • Adam Black

            Life is: No pain, No Gain Ferness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

            and Boy are we having a sale today!

          • Always. ^_^

          • Adam Black

            oH @Redffern:disqus …
            we never left

          • D. Garrett

            as you wish…

        • Adam Black

          If you are a Gold Patron you find out his one weakness, is his deathly allergy to peanuts .

          ( Whoops sorry @alexwoolfson:disqus 😉 )

          Last Page of this comic is just a Giant Snickers Ad.

  • Terrell Penha

    Duncan does really love to hear himself talk a lot lol too bad for him

  • D. Garrett

    whoo hoo. spooky is bad! and hot!! omg! just yummy.

  • I love that there are five panels completely devoted to Anni being frustrating and Spooky getting the one up on him.

    Darn! Totally forgot about camping tonight. Had to go grocery shopping. Oh well.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Glad you’re here now at least!

    • You were also suitably distracted with that lovely little gift that came in the mail that you generously shared pictures of.

      • I was terribly distracted, yes, dearest Doki. I still haven’t gotten the other package from Hamlet but I will share that too 😀

  • kuku

    Snark on, Spooky! Maybe the Platinum Princess is going to get a steam bath, a bit too hot to handle?

  • Adam Black

    The Colors look Great!
    Now Spooky, conjure that Demon to eat him, once and for all

    • D. Garrett

      no i like anni too much for him to be devoured. he must undergo villain rehabilitation stat!

      • Adam Black

        His rehabilitation with him being excreted in hell

        • D. Garrett

          gross!!! ummm living rehab then please.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I don’t like him all that much, but if Sircea’s hints as too Lamproos’s tastes are accurate, then Duncan’s life may not be in any danger at all. His dignity however….

    • I like the colors too. Especially the neon-ish green of Spooky’s magic contrasted with that Tumblr shade of blue sky in panel 4.

      • Jen Roberts

        I also like the sort of… spikiness, I guess? going on with Spooky’s magic: the white crackle-lines that Tsunami’s water and Red Hot’s fire don’t have. It really emphasizes the point that this isn’t something natural, but supernatural, we’ve got going here, and it’s… good texture, I suppose. Does magic have textures? Whatever.

        • Oooooo! I like this observation, Jen. And the white crackle idea. Make me wonder if his magic makes noise. Crackling, buzzing?

          • Jen Roberts

            I sort of hear it as a subtle electric buzz, maybe the occasional crackle when Anni strains or it comes into contact with other magic or something. Sort of… supernatural lightning-y? I am so eloquent today. >_<

          • I like it! Anni tries to throw it off or do some kind of shifting, neutralizing thing and it makes buzzing sounds. What does it feel like, I wonder? Obviously it doesn’t hurt but it must be uncomfortable.

          • syllibub

            If it’s anything like what Sircea did, it’s ticklish.

          • Forgot about that. I’m sure you’re right.

          • Adam Black

            thats just because she an old creeper and couldnt keep her tentacles off him

          • Tyler Griffin

            If Spooky is feeling a bit crude it could be one of those ALMOST pleasurable but ultimately annoying tingly sensations

          • Jen Roberts

            I wonder if it feels like pins & needles, like when your foot falls asleep and starts to wake up again. Or maybe that’s just what I want Anni to feel like. He deserves some discomfort, at a minimum.

          • I think that would be appropriate *nods*

          • Tyler Griffin

            Well, if we are going with this electrical hum and crackle schtick. It could feel like that odd vibration and tooth itch you get standing close to large power amplifiers such as found in power plant room of a large plant facility.

          • Adam Black

            Snap, Crackle, and Pop.
            were spooky’s Demon Elf mentors in hell

        • Adam Black

          Depends , are you feeling crunchy today?

  • Jen Roberts

    Oh Spooky, how I love thee. <3

    • And you doubted “Tentacular, Tentacular!” I’m telling you… Act One closes with a big slimy bang!!!!! (You’re a genius)

  • D. Garrett

    anni gets a boner now cuz he gets off on being gagged! oh no!!! *chuckles.

  • *everyone takes a deep breath to recover from mass amount of comments*
    *goes right back to commenting*

  • D. Garrett

    ummm i know alot of u wont like what imma bout to say… tsu might be a viable sex partner for kyle. his water could neutralize kyles fire perhaps? makes for some steamy nights. (pun intended!) if kyle could seduce the straight seeming homophobe. but ive learned from porn its possible!

    • Can’t say I’m into it, but I see where you’re coming from!

    • ….I think everyone knows my stance on this, but whatever makes Mitch Kyle happy. ^_^

      • D. Garrett

        i prefer mitch or anni first. but i dont see mitch being able to handle the loss of fire control. tsu maybe could handle it. kyle needs options. poor baby.

        • Mitch as the top though, it would work…..high altitude…*gets lost in thought*

          • High altitude! Yes!

          • Tyler Griffin

            “Ok, be sure you tell me when you’re close. That way I can drop you. You go off while falling, then I’ll superman catch you for some afterglow cuddles. You trust me…..right?

          • D. Garrett

            no both vers? i like that best. **big grin

  • I think I’m gonna go and get back to writing! I was supposed to update my story yesterday. >_>

    (Not to self advertise, but if anyone is interested and just wants to be friends, here’s a link to my FF account: https://www.fanfiction.net/~ashlyncouslandtheirin )

    (Don’t hate me)

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Oops, I think you accidentally put that closing parenthesis as part of the url.

      • Oh oops! Thanks!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          No problem! 🙂

  • Y’know Anni’s hair is always so slicked back, helmet-like, but I’m wondering what it looks like a bit mussed. Or does it stay “slicked back?” Does it hang over his forehead. That might be a nice look…

    • Jen Roberts

      I AGREE

    • syllibub

      I’d like to see it messy, but I also wonder if his hair is more close-cropped? Because it’s colored in the same style as his beard, which he has to keep pretty well trimmed.

      • I had that thought too though I know you can slick back longer hair with the right products, er magic.

      • Now Spooky becomes a magically hellish hairdresser, but I’m still supposed to think he’s NOT gay……….. wow you guys do put on the “suspend the disbelief pressure. 🙂

        • Oh god with Spooky’s sass that would be so perfect. Making the scissors magically do their thing so he can talk with his hands and go all “Gurl let me tell you…”

    • Spooky! Use your magic tentacles to mess up Anni’s hair!

  • SofiaT

    I really hope that green stuff isn’t slimy…
    Although seeing Anni looking anything other than perfectly groomed, would be fun.

    • Jen Roberts

      Oh geez, now I’m taking dialogue from Spaceballs and giving it to Anni: “My HAIR! THEY SHOT MY HAIR!! SONUVABI—!!”

      • davefragments

        More dignified than shooting him in the buttocks.

        That might be a Forest Gump line or it could be an NCIS line. I’m thinking “magic” bullet.

        • We could hire you to write for three shows at once… and save big time… Dang!

          • davefragments

            I think making a ferret appear in the Annihilator’s pants would do for a good show. Lit by the full moon.

          • Jen Roberts

            “Is that a ferret in your pants or are you just… oh. It’s actually a ferret. Well, how cute!”

        • Tyler Griffin

          I dunno. He might enjoy getting shot in the buttock…. *ba-dum-dum-tshhhh*

  • Hi all, sorry to cut this short but my fav show just updated on their website. Talk to you all very soon! Have fun…

    • Night, Gryphon!

    • nite!

    • Night!

    • TwilightDreamer

      just a guess…would that be The Flash by chance?…..cause that’s where I’m heading right now! 😀

      • Nope. Supernatural but aren’t they both on The CW?

        • TwilightDreamer

          yep, they sure are 🙂

    • bandanajack

      and that we are in the next day… the end of this episode of FLASH had me yelling GGAAAAHHHHH!!! at my computer (i watch online).

      another week before we see robbie amell’s co star from his recently deceased tv show in her NEW role. agh agh agh.

  • Jen Roberts

    Hey, Anni! Think you’re actually going to win this one? http://sockschan.info/Macros/reallife.gif

  • David Welbourn

    I suppose Duncan say going to say “…make you wish you were never born!” since that’s such a typical villainous thing to say. Or “…teach you not to meddle with your betters!”, “…teach you to choose your enemies more wisely!”, etc.

    Or perhaps Spooky is just reminding Duncan to be a gentleman and let Sircea say all fun lines. Sircea, don’t just twist there; say something.

    • Tyler Griffin

      I can mashed potato! (I can mashed potato)
      I can do the twist! (I can do the twist)

      Now tell me baby (telllll me baby)
      Do ya like it like this? (do ya like it like this)

  • Okay this may be the most satisfying page EVER.

    I need to sleep now, because I’m having a hard time seeing the screen of my laptop. However, I just want to say that, if I had gone on that super duper sucky-a-saurus-rex date with Duncan… at the end of which I was all kinda paralyzed and FORCED to listen to Duncan monologue on and ON about how he just had to treat me like shite… erm… for – reasons! And then be abandoned naked in that warehouse…

    And NOW I’m listening to Spooky shut Duncan the f*ck up, when he’s starts pontificating here? I think I would have the single biggest boy-crush on Spooky that it would possible to have in the known multiverse. Spooky is the MAN!

    That. Is. All.

    • D. Garrett

      multiverse? “the one” reference?

      • Adam Black
      • Tyler Griffin

        Actually, in any set of fandom discussion, I typically use the term multiverse instead of world or universe. Because I just like the idea that all stories are real and exist within their own worlds.

    • 🙂

  • D. Garrett

    sircea is sidestepping super-fisted slippery slick substance. (whew. thats all the esses i can think of atm.)

    • Adam Black

      when I thnk of “super-fisted” and “slippery slick substance” , a few more esses comes to mind.

      Clearly, you had a more interesting night than mine

      • D. Garrett

        omg! what did i say!? lol. not as interesting as u might think.

        • Tyler Griffin

          I think it was the combination of “fist” with “super slick substance”

          • D. Garrett

            now that its been pointed out, i can see its an interesting combo. hehe. u have no idea how many times i have accidentally used double entendres. or used the wrong words at the wrong time. sometimes its funny, other times embarrassing…this 1 was funny to me.

  • Toli Bera

    oh man, I want to do all sorts of adult things to spooky right now.

    you know… adult oriented activities…

    ..like taxes, and willingly eating veggies, and finding well paying jobs.

    aww yeah, adult stuff.

    • Spooky has very recently discovered the pleasures of spaghetti squash, and he’s been curious to repeat the experience.

      Just saying, my friend…

      • Toli Bera

        I choose to interpret that in multiple manners if you do not mind sir. and recompense will be made at the soonest moment for any wrong doings.

        but for now… *Scatters t4 forms*

  • Kate G

    Hm, it looks like Annihilator is learning the meaning of, “silent as the grave.” I wonder if he’s like that, the pompous old windbag.

    Wait, did I just say old? *gasps* Oh my, I did. *looks around for Duncan* Am I safe from wayward shuriken? *looks around some more*

    My, my, my, Spooky showing his sexy powers off. MESS UP HIS HAIR, SPOOKY!!!! I want to see it all messed up and Duncan not being able to do a thing about it! Hee hee hee hee!!!!!

  • Duncan is genre-savvy, he should know better than to start villain-monologuing in the middle of a fight. Now he can’t even tell the “boy” that they’re all going to have much more exciting things to worry about if Spooky doesn’t let him go.

    • Tyler Griffin

      “And your little dog TOO!”

  • Oh, what a zinger. And Spooky isn’t aware yet of how apropos it really is.

  • Falconfly

    The face in the last pannel tho.

  • I suppose it’s been a very long time since Duncan suffered such an indignity (outside Laampros that is)

    • SofiaT

      It’s getting worse and worse.
      First a demon King, now an impertinent kid barely out of his teens.

      What is the world coming to? No respect for super-villains these days.

      • It’s all those video games! And comics! 😛

      • bronakopdin

        for your elder super-villains to boot! xD

  • third monologue’s the charm eh Duncan

  • Derkins

    OMG this page is so good. That is all. XD

  • TwilightDreamer

    Hehe….anyone else end up in a giggle fit when Spooky shut him up? 😛
    When the loveable goofballs like Spooky go into badass mode…it is just too awesome! XD lol

    • :: mmmff! mmm!!! rgggle jppph!! ::

      is what i imagine the sounds are, anhi currently makes, TD

      • TwilightDreamer

        lol, can just hear him now ;D
        Just out of curiousity….is your name based on Generator Rex?

        • actually: i have reformed my previous moniker, Rex Ganymede, into an “alternate form.”

          i fear i must confess to not knowing anything about Generator Rex..

          • TwilightDreamer

            Lol, it’s ok 🙂 I knew it probably wasn’t related….Generator Rex is a cartoon series I really like…it’s only typical me that that’s where my mind went straight to 😛 still a cool name anyway.

          • (Rex Ganymede, itself, is based on an anime series, which i hold near-and-dear to my heart)

          • TwilightDreamer

            aaww 🙂 may I ask which anime?

          • Cowboy Bebop.

          • TwilightDreamer

            aaah yes *nods*….I haven’t seen it, but I know of it.

          • so we’re “mutual,” in that regard

            l.m.a.o.

          • TwilightDreamer

            rofl! XD yes, it would seem we are 🙂

  • Wildroses

    Well, I just hope Spooky doesn’t end up regretting humiliating and taunting Duncan like that. To be honest, I’m a little alarmed he was gagged. Now Duncan has no chance to say at some future point: “No, you don’t understand! If you don’t let us do this terrible thing something even more terrible is going to happen to the world!”

    • If that truly was foremost on Duncan’s mind then he had how many chances to start by now? Twice, he chose to express his anger and start a VBM(very boring monologue).

      • Wildroses

        Oh good heavens, there is no way explaining the terrible situation is in the foremost of Duncan’s mind. I’m more worried about the circumstances changing and Duncan having no chance to say anything because of his own stupidity in expressing his anger and starting a VBM. And I’m convinced that is a possibility because every storytelling instinct I possess is telling me that things are going to go very bad very soon for the heroes. Who wants to read a story in which everything goes off without drama or tension for the heroes? BORING!

  • fujoshifanatic

    Go Spooky, go Spooky, go! Good, everyone’s back to focused ass-kicking! Love the way Spooky shut down Anni’s pomposity! As for Anni’s thought bubble, I bet it’s something like this:

    “Mmmf!!…Mhmm…If I had known that ecto-tentacles could be so…intense, I would have had Sircea try this on me with a friend years ago…”

    Just my guess. 😛

    And congrats on the Patreon progress Alex! I knew people would step up to the plate for you. And I know they will keep on stepping up as time goes by and more people see the consistent, quality work you produce. Kudos!

    • Thank you, fujoshifanatic! I feel so lucky to have such an amazing, supportive readership. Very lucky and grateful. 🙂

  • Mersharr

    I’ve written enough YaoiHentai to know where this is going 😀

  • i wish my old partner-in-crime, KiLe, was here to help me decipher those letters Spooks is projecting at Duncanhi

    .

    hmmm…

    STFU?

    ambassador chris!
    ayudame!

  • timemonkey

    Not looking all that confident are you PP?

  • TheManBehindTheCurtain

    Personally I would (if things get sticky) have Spooky raise Duncan up in the air as far as he can and cover his eyes as well. Then have FlyBoy carring a big boulder at mach 2 slam Duncan with it.

    That’s sure to leave a nasty mark and maybe even take him out of the fight. At least until Lampross poseses Duncan to find out why the gate hasn’t opened on time.

    • D. Garrett

      flyboy might not even need a boulder…if spooky has duncan immobilized and flyboy charges him at mach 2 = splatt! no more anni. but maybe he would use a lesser speed to just incapacitate him instead.

    You know, Spooky, there are times when talking trash can come back to bite you in the ass. Hold Duncan; don’t piss him off.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Waaay back during the trip to the warehouse Alex made the comment about how one day Spooky’s lack of filter would get him into trouble one day. This might be an instance of it. I get the impression that Spooky would need to consciously restrain himself with difficulty if he wanted to keep his smart mouth under control.

      • Technically, I agree with your wise post Saxon, but I just NEEEED to point out that a forced year-long vacay in Hell does that to a guy. I mean…

        “What? You don’t like my attitude? Wish I would go to hell? Well, sorry to break it to you sweet pea… BEEN THERE. DONE THAT. GOT THAT T-SHIRT!
        L-I-T-E-R-A-L-L-Y!”

        Wise or not, I think Spooky has earned the right to be sassy to his elders. **Now I do get your real point… and that, that may come bite him in the ass… yeah, probably. However, you get enough creepy crawlies biting you in the ass, over time, and you stop caring so much. You know?

  • BO

    now it might just be me, but i get the feeling both the Annihilator and Sircea are holding back. it seems weird that not one but two of the most feared villains around have not been able to drop a single one of the team (or maybe that’s just my wishful thinking)

    • syllibub

      Duncan could be holding back out of disinclination to seriously hurt or kill any of the Protectors unless he absolutely has to. If Sircea’s restraining herself, it’s probably because she’s stalling — right now all the team members are occupied and therefore not messing with the Sacrificial Cube(TM), so if she stays just dangerous enough that both Kyle and Gordon have to concentrate on her and not freeing the hostages, she can just wait out the timer.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Hey guys. I just got home from gamesmastering some Dr Who at my Wednesday RPG group. They were a bit worried that the situation was looking a bit too much like a pedestrian black ops corporate raid until I threw the 60s era Legion of Super-Heroes foes, the Brain Globes of Rambat, at them. [cackles madly] Anyway….

    Duncan…. Look, I can’t think of a kind way to say this, so let’s just cut to the chase. You’re making yourself look like an idiot with all this bluster that has no follow through. I’ve been saying this for a few weeks now. I even wrote a freaking essay about it. But you haven’t listened to me, and you haven’t listened to the other readers, even if they’ve mainly been making cat-calls. Seriously, the only way you could be a bigger disappointment is if you’d tried the hackneyed line “Nothing in the world can stop me now!”

    For your sake I hope you can pull a convincing reversal – perhaps by revealing that you sneakily planned to lull the Young Protectors into a false sense of security with your bluster. Or something. Just get your act together, dammit; you’re supposed to be the most dangerous villain on the planet.

  • Crespo

    Has anyone chimed in on just how awesome Spooky’s magic rays look?

    • I did, the effect looks amazing, doesn’t it?

    • bronakopdin

      indeed, I could even imagine getting him spelling those as a nice tattoo it would look awesome!

  • Pikinanou

    Ooh, straight in the ego! Now that hurts a bad guy more than any punches in the face, right? 😀

  • WarGoddess

    Oh Spooky, you ruiner of villainous monologues you! 😀

  • Bwahahaha .. that’s not just an ‘Oh *snap*!’ .. that’s an ‘Oh *snap, snap, snap*!

    Spooky rules.

    The thought of all the rvil monologues Spooky must have heard. If a (meta) human villain likes his speeches just think about how demons, and their feeling of being the best, must have Spooky listening to the start of a lot of them. I say start, because I think many demons didn’t get to finish theirs ^_^

    So Kyle is going for the staff and that burned hand gotta hurt. Also, PP might be about to feel the punch of one of those cool water fists. Wether he’s’ going for the key or directly at her, that’s gonna leave a mark.

    First Kyle flambee her cape and it looks like she could be about have the recemblance of a drowned cat. The villains will be needing a stylist soon 😉

    If Dunc wasn’t already established as the lying bastard of a supervillian then he’d be digging be digging himself deeper towards that every time he open
    ‘Kids’.. ‘boy’.. that’s what he calls all of them. Someone (Spooky seems the his mouth and approches the team directly…most likely) needs to Duncan that he had sex with one of those ‘kids’. Consistently calling them that only reflects worse on himself.

  • Sunfire

    Hey-ohhh!
    Brilliant move by Spooky!

    I might be tempted to read a little more deeper and say maybe Duncan’s irate ‘soapbox’ speech and snarling contempt of ‘boy’ and ‘kid’ stems from frustration that the ceremony got ruined before he could turn the tables on PP and maybe trap her or offer her to Lampy buuuut…I dunno. If that was the case he might have started out saying “You don’t know what you’ve done” or “You’re making it worse chaining me!”

    First-up sneering that the magic can’t hold him really does just smack of arrogance Almost like those second thoughts went out the window once the attack happened – maybe getting his butt kicked like this and being pinned up like this has only brought back all the insulting pain of growing old and slow.

    Tsunami wreaked a whole HELLUVA lot of damage with his water, both he and Kyle are keeping PP more than busy, and Spooky’s holding Dunc just fine. Maybe at the attack Duncan had a flash-surge of anger that in his vibrant days a bunch of kids would never have run rings around him like this, back when he was at the height of his Annihilator powers and his physical ability.

  • AseretZone

    His thought bubble would read: “You…die first.” XD Sorry, I just can’t help but think of the witches in Hocus Pocus at times, ever since he sold his soul to the devil to gain eternal youth.

    Go Spooky! And the other two seem to be doing pretty good, too. They have to get the key from her, though!

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Spooky’s reaction just put a big grin on my face…..I don’t think Anni will have a chance to win this one!

  • MichB

    Spooky, marry me.

    • purplefoxglove

      I already tried that one…unfortunately, he hasn’t answered so far. 🙁

      • bronakopdin

        hmmm…. more chances for me? ^^

    • bronakopdin

      I’d totally ship you… if I wouldn’t want him to marry ME instead xD

  • Sapfo

    Firedrill for today is over, but here it seems to be on going. And a lot of magic. Spooky is on the go 😀

  • purplefoxglove

    *admires Spooky with shining eyes* I didn’t think Spooky could get any more awesome. Thank you, Alex, for proving me wrong yet again 😀

    cool – cooler – coolest – SPOOKY JONES!

  • somebody

    so, this is my first comment on your webcomic, but I decided to start writing comments, so I just wanted to let you know that I really really love the young protectors and artifice :3
    I love the characters and the story is so enthralling that I am always looking forward for the next page :}

    Spooky made me laugh out lout when I read the page xD haha~ can’t wait for saturday

    • Hello and welcome! ^_^

    • Megan Staples

      Welcome to the party!

    • Welcome somebody!

    • bronakopdin

      welcome 😀

    • Yay! Welcome! Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you’re enjoying our work here (and Artifice too!) You’ve put a big smile on my face.

      We have a great community here in the Comments. I hope to see you again! 🙂

  • Megan Staples

    Go Spooky, go Spooky, go Spooky….

  • bronakopdin

    oh Spooky! You’re hitting all the right buttons believe me xD
    at least mine ^^

    I have to admit I’m impressed on how smoothly everything goes until now!
    The only real disturbance was Spooky’s leg and yet he stands his ground there!
    Though at the same time I wonder WHEN we’ll see troubles arriving?
    Even if the plan will be a success (and seeing how it goes it’s at least a small option by now) I wonder how they’ll deal with the consequences >/////<

  • Frater Gymnos

    I love the humor of Spooky silencing Duncan!

  • Talea Fraemohs-Mitchell

    Dang, and I thought all along it was KYLE in charge of burning people…

  • Mir

    A new page is up! Great birthday present to me ^_^ Kyle and I are now the same age and better yet it’s page with Spooky’s humorous response!

    • SofiaT

      Happy birthday, Mir!

    • Happy Birthday Mir!

    • Adam Irving

      Happy Birthday! A nice present indeed.

      • Mir

        Thank you all! 🙂

    • Yay! Happy birthday, Mir! Glad to have you here! 🙂

    • Happy B-Day Mir. 🙂

    • Happy Birthday, Mir!

    • Kitkat822

      We share a birthday! Have a wonderful day and a year full of happiness! 🙂 xx

  • Friggin’ owned.

  • Adam Irving

    These action pages have just been beautiful. Not that I don’t enjoy the talking parts of these too, but I imagine it’s nice to stretch too.

    • It is nice. Especially when the scene is in the hands of amazing artists like Adam and Vero. I’ve been wanting to share these pages with y’all forever. 🙂

    • Eve

      They are really amazing. I can’t wait to read them in book format. They’ll be twice as beautiful when you can flow from one page to another.

  • Mir

    It just came to me but I feel like Duncan doesn’t want to hurt anyone on team YP (or at least just the younger ones) he could of hit Spooky in the eye (or maybe the chest) with ninja-star thing; blinding him.. But he goes for the leg? Not even the weaker part of the legs, just the upper thigh. I could be completely wrong though and has every intention to kill them. Just spit ballin’ here.

    • SofiaT

      Duncan isn’t the type to lose much sleep for killing those who get in his way.
      But he’s also not the kind to kill just for the sake of killing either. Especially those he deems innocent (I can easily imagine him killing rapists and murderers the way he would a mosquito). There is a grudging respect there, for all his exclaiming “fools!” and calling Spooky and Kyle “boys” and “kids”. He recognises them as something pure and good, something he’d like himself to be, but thinks he’s lost the right to.
      In short, Duncan is the guy who walks with squared shoulders and head held high the highway to Hell, not because he’s evil but because he believes he’s lost the right to Heaven.

      Would he kill the YP if push came to shove? Maybe.
      Will he do it unless he’s gone through every other option first? No.
      I can bet serious money on it and I’m not a gambler.

      • Jaq

        This is the thought I’ve had about him, too.

      • My thought, too. I think he was sincere in his appreciation of the YP team’s selfless efforts to help other people. We’ve had a sample of how some of the adult superheroes aren’t really all that heroic, with the Terrible Twins’ ego and disregard for innocent casualties, and Duncan clearly despised them for it.

        It wouldn’t stop him maiming or killing the kids if he felt he had no other option, but it wouldn’t be his first choice.

    • Jose O. Gonzalez Lopez

      Hey I still think he is in love with Kyle so your idea isnt far-fetched

    • Lillihandra

      I’m pretty sure he told Kyle when they were on their date that he’s personally gone after villains who attack heroes who are still minors. I figured that was why he waited until Kyle’s 18th bday to go after him. Spooks is still too young at this point.

      • AseretZone

        I thought Spooky was one of the adults? That’s why he would be in charge after Gordon but before Kyle? Plus he’s pretty close to Commander’s age.

        • SofiaT

          You’re correct, Spooky is 20yo.

      • Tyler Griffin

        Technically, he waited until Kyle’s birthday because of the inherent magic in anniversaries. We have no real reason to assume that Duncan was being honest about that, but we also have no real reason to assume that he was lying. Duncan is a definite narcissist, but he doesn’t strike me as the kind of vaudevillian evil who lies for the sheer pleasure of discord. I think generally Duncan probably avoids lethal force, though.

  • Klaus

    It looks like they have only fought the diabolic duo to a standstill, if that. Not good enough. That clock is still ticking.

  • Jose O. Gonzalez Lopez

    I didnt know that Dunkan liked things in his mouth!!

    • Dave Nguyen

      This comic really likes to tease the NC-17 rating >_>

  • Abbi Orenstein

    don’t get too cocky Spooky, he’s still dangerous, ‘specially with his soul on the line.

  • Shjade

    Annihilator’s thought bubble in the last panel:

    A copy of the same scowl he’s making in reality. The frowniest of thought bubbles.

    >:|

    • John

      I’m imagining a string of symbols with spooky’s name in there from time to time.

  • Quick thought – Sircea’s hand is conveniently covering up the spot where the key would be showing in the crystal. Maybe something is changing?

  • John

    So after tripping, and being molested by ectoplasmic(?) tentacles, Duncan has now been muted.

    Hmm, cue gag reel.

    I’m more and more intrigued by the nature of magic in this world. It’s seems to be very elementally aligned, but without the necessity of USING said elements.
    Intriguing.

  • Klaus

    Spooly is able to control several tentacles at once. This muct take a lot of practice. Or else the tentacles has some kind of build in intelligence. Is this a creature, or part of one? In the interlude Spooky offered to summon a demon. Are there other demons than those of hell? (Spooky calls a creature of hell a demon in the bonus comic.)

    • davefragments

      I don’t think Spooky wants to “summon” anything.
      I remember that when the computer screen showed that “OMG” moment (the one that is on the Patreon advert) that the Commander put her foot down and said no to even a small demon to eat the computer.

      I also wonder if Spooky being sent to the demonic dimension was caused in some way by Kyle’s Mother’s rather illicit love affair.
      I mean to say there IS THERE a possible “Y Tu Mama Tambien” moment in our future?

      • Klaus

        The episode shows that summoning demons, whatever that may mean, is how Spooky works. Or one way he works. Commander did not want their equipment destroyed. That it would have been done by a demon is incidental.

        Why should Kyle’s mother have had an illicit affair? We know nothing about her. She was (or is) very likely female. But human, demon, engel, alien, a construct made for this one purpose, who knows? Do demons even need mates to procrerate?

        • davefragments

          I don’t know about Kyle’s mother. I’m voicing suggestions.

          As for Spooky’s magic, when he checked out Kyle at the Warehouse there was the same green glow. And the dragon at the fire sprang out of green glowy stuff.

  • Tyler Griffin

    Well, I done gone an’ done it, ya’ll 😀

    • Thank you, Tyler! You rock! 😀

      • Tyler Griffin

        Trust me, your work is worth it. Representation is important, but representation done well is even more important!

  • *sets up tent* I am going to go grab dinner. Nothing interesting happen while I’m gone! And I better not find anything weird in my tent…(looking at you Chris)

    • Tyler Griffin

      *Hides the baby Jackalope in your sleeping bag*

  • Hey guys, I am not sure if I am going to be around to camp tonight. This ear infection is kicking my butt, despite being medicated. I think it moved into my left ear and mother said it might be trying to move into my upper respiratory area.

    • Tyler Griffin

      Ewww// That sucks. I’m sorry. Get well soon

    • davefragments

      Ear infections are painful to deal with. Get well.

      • Haven’t had one since forever, and it seems like it is going to be a double. I forgot to ask mother if I should go ahead and medicate my left ear as well as the right, even though I am not 100% about it. It might be sympathy pain/aggravation?

        • davefragments

          I don’t know. I had an ear infection as a teenager from swimming in a lake and never did that again. It was painful and I sympathize.

        • Ear drops doesn’t always work for everyone (what I’ve heard) and that’s why I suggested the camomile tea for you on twitter (old fashioned remedy that I know was used on me many years ago). I’d really try a nosespray as well if it’s affecting your sinuses. You can use a nosespray up to ten days in a row and then you need to take a break with it.

    • feel better you!

    • Get better soon Doki! This 100 day cold/flu evil thing that is going around this year has just been horrible everywhere! -__-

      • Thanks. I might be able to hang around, but I might be reaching my sitting limit and have to go lie down soon.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Poor Doki! I will be sending you my best wishes for your recovery.

  • Tyler Griffin

    • This is awesome news! It sucks this has to go through each state individually. 🙁

      • Tyler Griffin

        Well, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case which would settle the issue for the entire nation. And a lot of folks are really excited about that, but this is the same Supreme Court that just recently ruled that Businesses can have religious beliefs, and that a I businesses beliefs trump those of it’s employees. So, who knows what’s about to happen

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Good point. We’re going to have to work for so long to undo some of the crap they’ve pulled.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      That’s fantastic news!!! HOORAY!!!

  • Happy Camping night!

    Going to break some weather records for warmth in my city this weekend. Supposed to get up to 20 degrees Celsius (almost 70) which hasn’t happened since the 1940’s! No global warming my ass… although early spring like this I will take! *plans on wearing shorts*

    • 70’s is still pants and long sleeve weather here. 😛

      • Tyler Griffin

        If it was in the 70’s here atm I’d probably be prancing naked around the yard. (It is well after dark and a light mist is falling in the upper 30’s)

        • It’s 48 F at the moment (night time as well). 😀

      • Hehe Canada = anti-freeze in veins. I will take any chance I can get for cute leg warmers and shorts in January XD

        • Yeah, blood gets thin when summers are between 100-110 F. lol

          When folks complain how hot it is when it’s in the 80’s, I usually laugh and think that’s a pleasant day.

          • The fun part is in the summer we get that hot too… -40 in winter and last summer it was in the 90s – 110 all July/August pretty much. I just don’t like winter….

          • I think we’ve gotten into the single digits a couple of times during the winter. Well at night anyway. I don’t blame you for the winter hate. Not with those temps.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That just doesn’t seem fair.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Really? Wow. Here you’ll sometimes see people breaking out the shorts when it gets into the 50s (Fahrenheit).

        • Well, at least at the ending of fall beginning of winter, yeah. I suppose by the time winter is over, that does begin to get warm.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yeah, it definitely depends on the context – whether you’re coming from warmer or colder temperatures.

    • Funny. Supposed to break weather records here in SF too this weekend. We must be getting the same weather patterns. And it’s also going to be almost 70.

      • Eland

        Is it true it’s often not very hot there? From IL, that sounds too good to be true!

        • You are correct about that. SF has a temperate climate though some days can be hot (usually in the Fall) and mild, like this weekend.

  • davefragments

    The Richard Tucker Opera Gala is on PBS – –

      take care

    • D. Garrett

      whoo hoo. i just woke up. cya later doki!

      Good night, Doki! Sorry I missed you!

    • Get some rest!.

    • Have a good rest, Doki. I hope you’re feeling better later.

  • Tyler Griffin

    Yeah. I though this might be my first time getting to actually camp out with ya’ll. But I think I’m just gonna have to get some sleep instead. Peace peeps

    • D. Garrett

      sleep well. cya later. 🙂

      Sleep well!

    • Night!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I’m petsitting/housesitting again this weekend! This time I’m taking care of a bunch of cats for a friend of mine. She fosters cats for a rescue organization, so while she only owns two cats, there are six in all in her house.

    • syllibub

      My brother’s girlfriend fosters dogs, so her apartment is usually pretty crowded with excellent animals. Hope you’re having fun with the cats!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I am, but most of them are pretty shy. The two permanent ones will let me pet them, but the others are only willing to sniff my fingers so far. There’s one kitten that just arrived on Thursday (it was an emergency placement) and it’s still pretty feral.

        • syllibub

          Oh, that sounds challenging! Six cats at a time is a lot, especially with a kitten like that — does it have to stay separate from the others?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It does right now, yes. It’s staying in a spare bathroom. The poor little thing has frostbitten paws, but it’s been to the vet for treatment and seems to be doing okay.

            I have to use gloves when I go to pick it up because it’s scared and hisses at me, but I’m supposed to hold it and pet it anyway to help it get used to people. I can take the gloves off once I’ve got the kitten, though – it hasn’t tried to scratch or bite me.

          • syllibub

            Aw, poor thing. That’s good that it doesn’t lash out at you or anything, though — it seems like a good sign that it will adjust to people eventually.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yeah! It was purring at one point today when I was petting it, but since cats also purr sometimes when they’re frightened I don’t know for certain whether that was a good sign or not.

          • syllibub

            I wouldn’t know enough about cats’ body language cues to say for sure, but I hope it was the happy kind of purr.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Me too!

          • Poor little thing! Sounds like you’re taking good care of it. Frostbitten paws make me sad.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yeah, me too. But I’m really glad that it gets to be all warm and safe now.

          • davefragments

            Good to hear that kitty is doing better.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Definitely! Thank you for your kind wishes.

        • cats and puppies no dogs. well…maybe an occasional dog…

  • *Joins camp* Hi Youngsters 🙂
    It’s a cold night here (and I also have a cold again so double meaning) and Elsa is playing around outside.

    • Sorry Danish for sending you our weather… 🙁

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Aw, poor Danish! Glad Elsa’s having fun, though.

    • davefragments

      It is about 30F here.

      • Eland

        Yes, 29 in IL currently. It’s not been too bad lately though. A while earlier it felt much worse, I think.

    • Sympathy with the cold. I have one too!

    • Sapfo

      Is she called Elsa this time?

      • No clue, but it’s snowing so either it’s Elsa or the actual Snow Queen 😉

        • Sapfo

          Ah I thougth it was a storm coming that I did not know about XD

    • Hi Danish! Sorry it’s so cold there.

  • Eland

    So, I’m hoping to learn how to camp here properly, but I didn’t quite figure it out before either, so haha. We’ll see how this goes in actuality… ^^;

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Welcome, Eland! Glad to have you here.

      • Eland

        Thanks a lot. It’s crazy how well you all know each other through time!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          It really is pretty darn cool!

    • Commenting is the first, but huge, step to camping. So far you’re doing it right 🙂

      • Eland

        Apart from (probably) language and respecting others, are there any rules I should be aware of? #overlyworried

        • Naw pretty open here as long as the normal comment rules are followed 😉

          • Eland

            Hahah, okay thanks. Do .gifs or other links work? I don’t want to accidentally post one sometime to figure out it does something ugly to the comments section. 🙂

          • Links work just fine. 😀

          • They won’t be shown ‘live’ in the comments, but if you post them people can click to see them. Same with links.

          • Eland

            Thanks, DanishWolf. At least I won’t have to worry about them being gigantic, at any rate. 🙂

        • 😀

          Just have fun. You’ve cleared the first hurdle of saying Hi!, the rest is easy!

    • Welcome, Eland! Lots of cool folks here. I hope you have fun! 🙂

        Thanks. I’ve lurked for quite some time, just felt intimidated by everyone’s connections already. XD

        Edit: even though you’re all very kind.

        • It’s a pretty friendly, welcoming bunch. 😉

        • Glad you’re here. Commenting and hanging around is where those connections start.

        • Don’t worry about that. Everyone here was new at some point. For me, I had originally commented with a few others on other webcomics but anyone else was a stranger.
          They only became non-strangers by commenting, and if you’ve lurked then you already got a head start 🙂

          • Oh yeah. I lurked for a LONG time too before I started commenting, but that is how everything starts. It can be intimidating at first, but it’s all fun in this place! 😉

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Nah, we love making new friends!

    • Eland

      Thanks anyone who has replied/upvoted me recently. I’m counting this as one big thank you so I don’t accidentally miss any in individual ones/upvotes. :3

  • Evening, campers. Popping in to say hello before I go to a movie so it’s going to be a short camp for me tonight.

    • Eland

      Which movie? I hope you enjoy it!

      • Thanks! Either Mockingjay or Imitation Game. Have you seen either of those?

        • Sapfo

          Both are good!
          Crying in both of them!

          • That settles it! Mockingjay it is. I just watched the second Hunger Games movie again last week so it’s fresh in my mind.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I hope you enjoy it!

          • Sapfo

            It is a good movie, so yes.

            I have three movies in mind that I would like to see: Imitation Game, Unbroken and a swedish movie called “Jönssonligan”

          • Eland

            Are you Swedish, Sapfo? 🙂

          • Sapfo

            <.<´What gave me away XD

          • Eland

            Well, the second guess would have to be that you just really like foreign films, right? Unfortunately my extent of Swedish knowledge is First Aid Kit and Malena Ernman. XD But I like them both, so I’m fine with that. 😛

          • Sapfo

            Oh I do love the First Aid Kit. lovely sisters. Marlena is also good.
            Yes I am from Sweden.

          • Sapfo

            and I just realized that I do love foreign films. There is this place called Hollywood that seems to make a lot of movies that have subtitals 😉

          • Eland

            Hahahah! I guess I never thought of it that way. How American-centric my mind must be. 😉

          • Sapfo

            You inspire me. It will be Imitation Game for me tonight

          • Let me know how it is!

          • Sapfo

            just got back from the movie. It is a good movie. Worth of watching. Had not only me and my friend crying, but the 50 yo man next to me wipping a tear away. Benedict and the rest of the actors did a great job and the framing was intresseting. Even if it is a sad movie, it did have me laughing (good laughing) at a few points. And when the emotions where on, oh dear I was crying! Hard!
            Sorry I am rambeling, which is something I do when I have seen something good XD

          • Thanks for the report!

        • Eland

          I actually haven’t. I couldn’t get into the Hunger Games, but I think other people have told me they loved that movie at least. 😀

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Have you read the books? I wonder if you might like it better that way.

          • Eland

            Well, I read the first book. And overall, I thought the plot was decent enough, but I think it was her style of writing which maybe didn’t appeal to me. I haven’t seen the movies yet (I don’t really watch a lot of movies), but maybe I’ll like them much more in that format.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            And if you don’t, no need to worry. Not everybody likes everything, after all.

          • syllibub

            I felt the same way about the writing — somehow I couldn’t get into it, even though I really like the general idea. I might give the movies a shot at some point, though.

          • I haven’t read the books yet, but I like the movies a lot. It’s a long wait for last part of Mockingjay.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            True!

          • Eland

            Is your image from Archer? 😀

          • syllibub

            Sure is!

          • Eland

            Awesome! In the lab I work in, they called one of the undergraduates “Woodhouse” because he always did the graduate students’ grunt work. Hahah. I think I like Archer’s mother the best, though. 😛

          • syllibub

            Fitting nickname! I hope they treated him better than Archer treats Woodhouse, though — he could have sued otherwise. And Mallory’s definitely my favorite! She’s so…uniquely awful, and yet badass.

          • The movies are actually much more enjoyable than the books because they keep the plot but lose the awkward prose. You should check it out!

        • Sapfo

          My friends comment about the Imitation Game: “Ungrateful bastards!!!”

        • stickfigurefairytales

          I’ve seen Mockingjay and I really liked it.

        • I’ve seen Mockingjay and I really liked it.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Ahahahaha, we’re twins!

          • I didn’t read your reply until I posted my own 😀

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I figured. 😀

  • D. Garrett

      • D. Garrett

        ooooh luv cheesecake! ty! *takes a piece.

    • stickfigurefairytales

    • *brings in spiked coffee & pocky* XD

      • stickfigurefairytales

        *takes a stick of pocky*

      • D. Garrett

        *helps muhself to some spiked coffee….ty starr!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I’ve been working on my homemade valentines. So far I’ve made a total of 27, which gives me about 23-25 yet to go.

    • So sweet of you, Stick!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I have a lot of fun with them! 😀

    • Eland

      Cute! Whom are they for?

      • stickfigurefairytales

        All sorts of people! Family and friends for the most part. I don’t really manage to do Christmas cards, but I’ve always enjoyed making my own valentines and I decided a few years ago that it would be fun to do that instead.

        • Eland

          That’s pretty cool. My Freshman year (I think it was) at university, I was walking to class, and some girl on a bike was biking around and giving people valentines paper-boxes (small).

          They said inside something like, “Just remember that someone loves you! It’s probably not me though, but someone else!”

          It made my day just because the message was hilarious. So, I’m sure you make other people’s day with yours too. Especially if they’re handmade like that!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That’s so funny! And very sweet, too. (Aw, thanks!)

  • Oops! Time to run to see Mockingjay. Hope you all have fun and I’ll see you on the other side tomorrow.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Take care, Gryphon! Have fun at the movies!

    • Have fun at the movie

    • Eland

      Have fun, and thanks for being welcoming. ^^

    • D. Garrett

      eat lots of fattening buttery popcorn!

  • Cman65

    soon please soon

    • D. Garrett

      ikr! whats gonna happen next!?

      • Eland

        I think maybe the “villains” will have time to strike back. It’s going pretty smoothly so far, ignoring Spooky’s injury…>_>

        • D. Garrett

          ur probably right.

    • Oh you’ll both love it! Patreon sneak peek is up XD No more words from me until up…

      • Eland

        I’m secretly rooting for the PP. 😀

      • D. Garrett

        seriously! hows about a tiny small insignificant…..HINT!?

  • D. Garrett

    does anyone know who has taken the most typ v-cards?

    • syllibub

      Probably Danish.

    • Sapfo

      Danish

    • *Slowly raises hand* Yeah, guess that will be me. My favorite prey ;-p

  • syllibub
  • Ninhursag

    Fourth panel: Oh, Annihilator what is that tentacle doing over your mouth? I find Annihilator + tentacles the best combo.

    • Jackal

      Pretty much.
