The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 2

Look at Kyle there. That is passion in his eyes, my friends. I think he totally wants to kiss Duncan right now!

There is still time to pre-order copies of The Young Protectors Volume One and other Kickstarter rewards. Watch this video for more information about that.

Speaking of kissing, this month’s Patreon backers are getting a very special treat — one of my most favorite pin-up images we’ve ever created — a very special pairing of Spooky and Kyle!

You can keep your hat on…

$5+ Patrons for January will get to see the full (and fully nude) version of this once their pledges clear in the first week of February. $10+ Patrons will get sent a high-res version of that with over double the resolution!

There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron (you can see them all here along with an explanation of what the heck Patreon is), 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.

So! Duncan has just revealed his true intentions to Kyle. The Platinum Priestess is still there right by his side with helpful words of advice. And love is in the air! (If Kyle doesn’t kiss Duncan, then the Duncanator is totally going to kiss Spooky. I mean, look at how cute the Spookster is in Panel 2!) I usually reserve this space for a bunch of different question the page raises in my mind. But this time, there really is only one: who is going to kiss who?

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

  • Kyle ain’t buying your really really good speech there buddy.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Not so much!

  • So madness was not to kill them. Of course it was xD

    • Tyler Griffin

      Well, from the Evil Overlord’s List perspective, she’s not WRONG.

  • SofiaT

    Alas, no shirtless Duncan…

    • Good things come to those who wait… 😉

      • Chris Dangerfield

        promises, promises! 😀

      • SofiaT

        🙂

        I’ve done my waiting! Twelve years of it! (oops, got too excited there)

        “I’ve been thinking flowers
        Maybe daisies
        To brighten up the room.
        Don’t you think some flowers,
        Pretty daisies
        Might relieve the gloom?”

    • syllibub

      Bummer…but there’s always the next page!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        She speaks the truth… and next page day it is!

    • When ever they find a way to destroy that dampener, Kyle can burn it right off him. I’m pretty sure Kyle can find a feeling hot enough to do that outside of hell too.
      Scorched Duncan or not, the shirt will be gone all the same.

      • Toli Bera

        hmm, what if Kyle’s powers are on a different ‘frequency’? since it’s a dampener to suppress human abilities, and he’s half demon… so *Cheats his way to victory*

        • Klaus

          His fire did go out when the Dampener activated.

          • But would they come back when the portal is opened?

          • Klaus

            Interesting question. We shall see.

  • LimpBiskit

    I dunno, looks more like he wants to break a foot off in his ass to me..

      We never knew Kyle was so kinky, he’s really opened up his options in a short period of time.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Ummmm yeah… kiss Duncan with the toe of his boot. Alex, we gotta have a chat about “romance”…. 🙂

    • Someday I’ll figure it out, Chris! I’ll keep trying! 😀

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I have every faith in you! 😀

    • purplefoxglove

      I totally agree. During the romantic dinner and the *drool* bed scene, Alex was expecting ninja robots. Now, Alex is waiting for some smooching. One of us got something seriously wrong…

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

  • Well he’s almost down on his knees begging for forgiveness. Try a little lower dude.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      The Admiral has spoken!

      • Ha!

      • Tyler Griffin

        And as long as you’re down there ANYWAY…

  • It really was Duncan’s way not to kill any of them (and get away with it). Not too sure Kyle appreciate all his efforts right now. So ungrateful of him.

  • davefragments

    I want to use it! I want to use it.

    What is he? A child? OR are there hidden plans?

  • I think if Duncan tried to kiss Kyle right now, I think Kyle might try to bite him and not in a good way.

    • davefragments

      I’m sure of that.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      There are sizzling kisses and then there are nuclear ones… just sayin’.

    • TwilightDreamer

      I think he’d try to take his lip right off 😛

    • bronakopdin

      I guess that would be left for Duncan to judge 😉 maybe he’s the type lol

  • Jeldenil

    I get the feeling he is saying this more for Kyle then for PP.

    • bronakopdin

      my thoughts!
      like indirectly asking for forgiveness

    • Tyler Griffin

      and for himself

  • So keep the supers (and probably the minions) alive but kill the glass box full of people? Save the boyfriend on the opposite side and let the little people die? You know Duncan, I don’t think Kyle is going to be happy if ANY people die….

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Concur absolutely. From what we’ve seen of Red Hot he seems to have internalized the boy scout code of superheroing. If for some outlandish reason Team Silver were able to successfully convince the Young Protectors that, yes, some human sacrifices were a vitally necessary in order to save the planet and humanity as a whole, Red Hot would not let innocents die while he lived. I think Red would volunteer.

  • davefragments

    I wonder it The Annihilator is a double agent?

    • That has been a thought I’ve had. I would like it to be true.

    • I have also wondered about that.

    • It’s crossed my mind too.

    • Keneu

      It can be. But working for whom?

      • davefragments

        That is a question I can’t answer.

    • Tyler Griffin

      I’m guessing more just a bad case of denial and projection. It’s how he gets through life (I wasn’t really evil when I killed for the mob, it was just the job, Boss’s orders. When I eliminated rivals to climb the top, that’s JUST the nature of the world. I was playing the game. The people who got hurt when I carried out my super-villain plans just got int he way. I never hurt anyone who didn’t try to stop me. I stalked and courted a minor in order to verify our plan would work. I seduced a minor because I had to have him in love with me BEFORE his birthday. I committed sexual assault because it was the only way to open the Gate. I sacrificed half of humanity to save the OTHER half. It’s never MY fault, I always TRY to mitigate the consequences.)

      • davefragments

        That gives me acid flashbacks to a Philosophy 101 course in college where we learned Situation Ethics (among other philosophies)

        • D. G.

          That sounds interesting.

  • Toli Bera

    “Look at Kyle there. That is passion in his eyes, my friends. I think he totally wants to kiss Duncan right now!”

    I’mma just gonna link to “Kiss With A Fist” and do with it as you will. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SmxVCM39j4 just sayin.

    • She is amazing!

      • Toli Bera

        The lyrics seemed appropriate for the situation.

  • syllibub

    Duncan my dude, if Sircea can still use magic, Spooky probably can, too. Granted, he’s pretty injured at the moment — I’m not sure when he’ll come around.

    Speaking of using magic, you’d think while Duncan was setting up his captivity display Sircea would have done something about the burn on her arm, but I guess after thousands of years you learn to shrug off little annoyances like being set on fire. And you know, I’m not sure if there are different magic “types.” Spooky can use healing magic, but most of the times we’ve seen him use his abilities to attack rather than help or simply restrain others, he’s done it with the aid of some kind of object — a stone in hell and the bottled spells he used during the battle last chapter. The bottles may have been for convenience’s sake, but it makes me wonder if offensive magic doesn’t come as naturally to him. Likewise, Sircea can bring the pain, but I wonder if she’s as good with healing magic or if that takes more effort. It seems like magical abilities would be influenced by personality.

    Anyway, Kyle looks like he’s reeeally starting to see things from Duncan’s perspective. And I’ll bet Sircea’s reassured — “Of course, there’s no possibility whatsoever that this technology could fail to restrain a wild card like the offspring of a demon lord. And killing them would be mean.”

    • You mean like having electrical cords running through water?? Surely such things won’t be a problem for them. I mean of course water doesn’t short circuit their equipment. I mean it wouldn’t dare right?

      • Tyler Griffin

        I didn’t want to be the kill joy who griped about historical accuracy in a story about wizards (hooray for meme references), but I noticed that very real life hazard myself last page.

    • davefragments

      Good point “If Sircea can still use magic” …
      Fascinating point.

    • Very nice insights here, syllibub! 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      All points very nicely covered thank you. 🙂

    • Tyler Griffin

      The marks on her arm and should might be burn injury as much as soot/char from that poor cape (may it rest in glory). Perhaps she failed to prepare any of her sock darning spells this morning

  • Bahahaha.. Will they figure out a way to get that minion untangled from the magical snake without Spooky?
    Poor little minion, still lying there and no one helping him.

    • Jeldenil

      Well, it -was- in the little print of his contract. He can not complain.

    • Well if he can’t get out of it on his own, then he just isn’t worth the bother. It’s part of being a minion. Besides Tom, Dick and Harry aren’t going near those things. Not even on a triple dog dare.

      “No, you do it.”
      “Are you kidding me? What if it bites me?”
      “So. You’ll become a weresnake.”
      “No, I heard various parts will shrivel up and fall off. I like my parts. You do it.”

    • davefragments

      That’s a good point. Syllibub below asked if Sircea can use magic.
      And the magic snakes work with the neutralizer going.

    • 🙂

  • Michael

    Plot twist: Kyle’s fire, being infernal, is too strong for the dampener tech once he really gets angry. And he’s really starting to get mad now. Firehulk BURN!

    • Toli Bera

      He’ll go Supernova?

  • Hmmm…..guess the dampener didn’t effect Spooky’s tiny demons in a bottle…that are still playing with that minion

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Before I hit the sack. I just want to say that the last panel on this page portrays such pathos to me.

    After what Duncan did to Kyle, whatever his inner purpose may or may not be in this moment, to deliver this speech to Kyle’s face with such a flat inflection is so incredibly cruel…

    Remember what being 18 was like? The fear? The desire? The pride? The emotion?

    Re-read the hell-date and all that lead up to it, and then read this last panel. It’s unbelievable. If Kyle had the ability to go nuclear… I suspect he would.

    At 18 years old who couldn’t? If this isn’t telling Kyle he’s the ultimate failure, then what is it?

    Laampros should take some lessons from Duncan. They say that Devils are never as cruel as humans can be. I think they’re quite right.

    • Great, insightful thoughts, Mr. Chris!

    • T Dibbler

      On the other hand though, his primary purpose here is to convince Sircea that they’re not worth killing – he might hurt Kyle in the process, but he’ll save his life. Sircea doesn’t strike me as the sort of person to be easily convinced to do something she deems pointless, soft-hearted, or unnecessarily risky. Leaving a team of adult superheroes alive would be potentially dangerous, so he needs to convince her that this team is just a bunch of kids, no threat at all, who can be easily neutralised without needing to be killed. So he may be delivering a crushing a blow to Kyle’s self esteem, but Kyle’s thoughts & feelings aren’t the ones he needs to be primarily concerned with here, Sircea’s are.

      I like that he worked in that line about ‘saving humanity’ – at one and the same time it reminds Sircea of their stated purpose in doing this whole thing in the first place (and lends weight to his argument to not kill the kids), and it tells Kyle that there is actually a higher purpose here beyond mass-murder and destruction (even though I doubt he’ll believe it).

      • Adam Black

        i think there is more.
        Once Laampros is across , they will be allies.

        YP want the walls repaired too, and fighting Team Silver would put the Americas at risk from demon colonization.

        The flaw in this plan is that Duncan will want to banish the Demons and Sircea will have the vested in keeping them , as it makes her the Protectress of Americas.

        • timemonkey

          I don’t think she needs to be that. Remember, she lost a whole bunch of power and immortality when whatever it was was screwed up. Once she fixes it she likely won’t need leverage.

    • Adam Black

      That poor , poor , sack.
      Dont beat it too hard.

  • Jeldenil

    I have been thinking since the last page…there are six young heroes in the team, so six extra special sacrifices (if Sircea gets her way). But isn’t the traditional number for this kindof things seven? I’m kindof worried for Corey in that light.

    • bronakopdin

      though how would PP and Anni even know about Cory? Even if they investigated our young heroes before, it just happened that Mitch found Cory mere hours ago, and it seemed that Mitch didn’t know about Cory’s powers three years ago, so even if they came across him in Mitch’s past, he’d just be any other teenager so why target him especially?

      • Jeldenil

        I don’t think they are targetting him specifically or on purpose. It’d just happen to be perfect if he would show up, like other readers suggested. He’d be the perfect seventh sacrifice, and I am pretty sure Sircea will know.

        • bronakopdin

          well IF he turns up… but how would he know where they even are?
          I doubt he could follow an airship speedwise (and they’d have noticed a tornado behind them lol) and the location itself is topsecret, Spooky just got it figured out not too long ago and only through sorting out and Amanda just told the military peeps, so how would Cory know?

          Also I’m sorry but what exactly would Sircea know? Somehow I sadly didn’t understand that part, sorry >_<'
          you mean that he has powers? Well given that he'd have shown up there, somewhere wherever, I doubt anyone without powers could even turn up there all alone so that would not be hard to guess xD

          • Jeldenil

            I don’t have answers to the first part of your questions. It’s a plotline I have seen speculated about elsewhere in the comments and even though I can theorize, it was A: not my point or something I came up with and B: if it happens, I am sure Alex will have written it in a way that is difficult to predict.

            And I was talking about her knowing about the number seven. Also, somehow I think that Cory might just betray himself -if- he shows up and sees this scene.

            In any case, it is all just speculation and there is -to me- no need to pick it apart endlessly. I am just trying to have fun reading and making up wild theories like a lot of other readers.

          • bronakopdin

            wow, well it seems like you feel bothered by me, that was certainly not my intention and I never meant to offend you in any way ^^’
            Sorry if anything came across funny to you!
            I was just trying to have a discussion but we can stop here if you’re uncomfortable or not interested 🙂

            and thanks for clearing up what you meant there, I really had no idea you were still referring to the number 7! Well sure she probably even knows why exactly that number is so special or something xD
            it IS Sircea we’re talking about after all ^^

  • As annoyed as I am with Duncan, I have to say he looks very handsome in panel two…but I hope he gets what he deserves, namely, Kyle decking him. And the shirt going away, er, being burnt off.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      You want the chest hair to burn off also? Or do you like him as the Silver Daddy? Fire is complicated when it comes to clothes vs. hair. 😀

  • davefragments

    I am going to bed, right now.
    Good night, sleep well or have a good day (whichever applies) …

  • As Dave mentioned below, I’ve also wondered about Duncan’s role in this. Is there a chance that he’s become some kind of double agent, and/or is there something else to it?

    How much has he been involved in designing things, and how much is him stealing the technology?

    Since he’s known about this day coming for years, he could have been personally involved in making things to help this along, and to help in case someone tried to stop it – as our team here. IF he’s somehow been involved in designing things, and not just industrial spionage to steal the technology, then I doubt he’s shared with the government why he’s been doing this. They may not even know he’s had a hand (money) in it.

    Being a double agent and/or staying low, only doing crimes behind the scenes to be ready for this day – both things could explain why he hasn’t shown a lot of himself doing crimes for years.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Hmm. Those are very good points. At first blush I’m wondering that if perhaps Exsec weren’t doing all the R&D on the power suppressors in-house but instead were subcontracting, then perhaps the wealthy Annihilator could covertly fund the project and have that as a back door for gaining plans of working prototypes. On the other hand, the instance cited by Commander that the labs where they were developing the power suppressor based on Kontari were raided to get ahold of the two working models argue against that.

      • But Duncan knew they were there, and that they were made. How? There’s questions there.

  • Megan Staples

    I believe that super powers and magic would have different “wavelengths,” as it were. A super hero’s power comes from within, something they’re born with. Magic, on the other hand, is external, an energy from all things living taken by the caster, shaped, and cast back out. Of course, there is Kyle, who is a half-demon, apparently. Maybe the demon half could break the hold of the tech. It’s all only speculation, though. To know, we must be patient for the coming pages.

    • Klaus

      But are all superpowers the same?

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Obviously not Sircea’s. Somehow she seems exempt, although Spooky is not?

        • Klaus

          Spooky was out cold before the dampener activated. Hunter’s cyborg powers seem to be extempt.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Ah ha! Thanks Klaus. Your help is always appreciated!

            Edit: So do we know if Kyle’s demon mojo is fully effected? Or is that also a variable?

    • Adam Black

      Yes, Kyle is half-demon .

      But Half what-else?

  • Jason Moon

    Duncan: “Feh, kids these days…”

  • EyeDontNo

    First panel, in the middle of the mud crescent=> Is that two minions fighting? Could Cory be disguised as a minion, and able to walk up to the nullifier and break it with a rock? Could I be trying too hard here?

  • TwilightDreamer

    Oh Ducan, are you ASKING Kyle to bite your head off with a comment like that??
    Do not start saying the whole “this is for the good of the world” thing again…*sigh*, still, have to give him props…ALMOST forgot what a brilliant actor he is…and at least he’s actually trying to keep them alive. It’s one of the things I like best about Anni, he’s definitely a bad guy, no arguments…but he has some level of honour and integrity under that evil layer.
    Really like how he’s drawn in panel two.

    • Keneu

      There’s a certain kind of character called “antivillain” which is exactly that – bad guys with morals.
      http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AntiVillain

      • Tyler Griffin

        Just like an Anit-hero is a person who fights genuine evil, for self-serving reason.

      • TwilightDreamer

        Lol, perfect :)…you don’t see many of them…well, less so against the anti heroes anyway 😛

  • Connor

    The page was being slow to load, so for a couple of seconds I could see the massive speech bubbles, but not read them. “Is one of them monologue-ing?” I thought. Not quite, as it turns out, but seriously Duncan, now is not the time for lengthy explanations or arguments. You’re about to summon a lord of hell, keep your word-count down. Just say, “They’re no longer a threat, and since we’re trying to save humanity we should probably not add to the death toll.”

    I guess you’re not allowed to become a supervillain until you prove your ability while pressed for time to use fifty words where five will do. (PP was grandfathered in when that requirement was established.)

  • David Welbourn

    The heroes have failed to stop the world from being saved by the villains. So what’s next?
    * Sircea attends to last-minute party preparations while Duncan monologues some more.
    * Laampros (and guests) knock at the gate with their invites in hand. Army and air force units arrive. Team Silver gains immortality. The party begins.
    * The timer on the glass cube reaches zero. Uh-oh, that can’t be good.
    * Laampros requests directions to Europe and gets them. He (and guests) leave.
    * Duncan asks Sircea if it’s time to repair the dimensional walls. Sircea turns him into a tree, then says, “About those walls? I lied. Bye.” She leaves.

    hm. Now how to fit Cory into that, free the heroes somewhere in the middle, and not get anyone killed. hmmm. Tricky. This plotting stuff is hard.

    • Klaus

      I think the death of the sacrifices is required to open the gate,

      • David Welbourn

        Maybe. Maybe not. In any case, I’m hoping there’s dancing at the party. I think Laampros would be an *excellent* dancer. Not to mention distracting. And everyone can use a distraction every now and then.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Indeed. Especially since certain parts of him were kept in shadow. Dancing, would probably show him off better. All those disco lights and all… Something to look forward to.

      • Adam Black

        You mean the Volunteers?

          They don’t like like volunteers to me.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Agreed… not much. However, I tried to find a way.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Well, maybe payments are being made to family members in need. So, it’s possible. Kinda like selling a kidney to the mafia. Right? A good cause?

          • Tyler Griffin

            I just had a thought. What if the people in the box are NOT innocent victims, but other magic wielders that Sircea has collected. All insane, all temporarily Bound while in the box, but let someone set them free and…

      • Chris Dangerfield

        So, you think Duncan is keeping our team alive to clean out the glass box after………. well you know. Messy.

    • Adam Black

      I wouldn’t believe Sicea either,
      but Spooky confirmed it.

    • xLizardx

      I think it would be interesting for the worst to happen, and for our heroes to endeavour to find a way not only to save the world, but to rebuild it. Most narratives stop at the brink of disaster, having protagonists save the day in the nick of time. Not many follow events past that point, having protagonists fail, then struggle to address that failure. It would be an intriguing approach, and make the readers question our expectations.

      The only other fictional universe I can think of where something similar occurs is Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn novels, where the premise is that the common trope of the “evil emperor”/ “dark lord” character succeeded, and the protagonists have to scrabble about in the literal ashes of their devastated world, in a desperate attempt to regain what was lost.

        Or even better, what happens when winning is almost as bad as losing?

        I once started writing a story that opened at the midway point of the heroes’ journey. They’ve just defeated the villain at great cost to themselves, while the heavens burn and most of the gods are dead. The only thing that qualifies this as a victory is that the antagonists are either dead or trapped in in the underworld. Now they have to walk home.

        And it’s not a short walk.

    • Gaël Cassetari

      Possibly. Qualifying the youngsters as helpless is however most likely an oversight. Chances are it will only take one on which the restraints don’t work properly to make all the careful planning a mess.
      Also, due to his nature, nothing says Laampros is going to respect his end of the bargain.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I agree. I am looking forward to Laampros’ glam Vegas entrance!

        You hear me Adam and Vero? “GLAMOROUS!” As a King of Hell deserves. I’m counting on you guys to deliver… crape paper, glitter cannons, black doves with razor sharp teeth… whatever it takes. DO NOT let Alex cheap out on the budget for Big L’s entrance.

        Thank you. 😀

        • Tyler Griffin

          We demand ALL THE GLITTERS!

  • Wildroses

    One of my theories as to why Duncan didn’t kill them was he wanted a chance to tell Kyle that he was doing the right thing, really… Judging from Kyle’s expression I don’t think it’s working.

    I do think because of the conversation Duncan had with the Priestess before the attack that Duncan is sincere in his belief that he is doing the right thing to avert disaster, even though it requires harsh actions.

    But I also think Sircea is doing this for pure self interest and perhaps it is not wise to inform your ruthless partner that your motivations are wildly different and you think there is a moral aspect to the plan…

    • I second this comment 😀

    • Omar Cantu

      I think it’s pretty clear to Duncan that Sircea is in this only for herself, after all she reassured him that, even though it will take longer, she will survive and become a goddess again even without his help and this plan.
      Then again that doesn’t mean she doesn’t cares at least a little for humanity, after all what is ultimate power good for if you don’t have anyone to control with it?

    • Adam Black

      Hes calling her Bluff.
      She just insisted on those “moral aspects” last chapter .
      And he just pulled her ass from the fire.

  • bronakopdin

    wondering whether that crescaent has another meaning? it’s placed so prominent there and with all those stones lining it’s border it seems suspicious somehow…

    It’s good to see that DUncan cares for our heroes wellbeing though I doubt Kyle is giving a shit about it at this point, just look at those eyes ^^’
    we really can’t blame him though… and there are also the sacrifices… somehow it seems like double standard…

    • Michael

      They did say in the previous chapter that the big circle thing was a distraction, so there must be something else that the ritual depends on.

      • Klaus

        Did they? When? On
        http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch3-page-120/ PP says that it will work even lying down.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Oh, a good page recall… that shows that our Sircea has already gotten the most important part of this whacky show. Darn smart sorceress.

          • Tyler Griffin

            Genre Savvy villains are the most dangerous.

  • Nate

    I just spotted Duncan’s mistake…

    Exsec has studied loads of superhumans, sure. And thanks to Spooky, probably a fair number of magic-users. But they’ve never studied demon offspring before. In particular, one who’s powers increase to a level high enough to overcome invulnerability when he is angry,…

    And Kyle looks PISSED.

    • ya i agree, yet we have seen magic work when the dampeners was active before. During Kyles and Duncans dinner date, the invisiblity powder still worked. So it could stand to reason that Spookys powers could not be effected by them, and since Anni saw magic still worked while the dampener was active he might actually be banking on Spooky waking up to free our Young “Misguided” Heroes.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I think there is still an open debate on specifically how the dampeners interact with Magic. The opposing theory to your suggestion is that magic already in place is immune to the dampeners, but new magic cannot be cast. The invisibility worked because the powder was prepared and active before the field went up. The effect of that would be that Spooky’s potions and pocket’s full of tricks (the ones he didn’t land on) would function, but he would be unable to cast.

        • Klaus

          If so, they need to switch it off before the timer runs down.

          • Tyler Griffin

            That is very true

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Indeed, Oi, if looks could kill!

      • Klaus

        … we would all be dead.

    • purplefoxglove

      Then again, during the date, the dampener worked just fine on Kyle…

      • Nate

        True, but he didn’t get angry….

  • Saxon_Brenton

    A number of people have already speculated on this, but I’ll take the time to qualify it technically.

    If the power suppressor operates as some type of digital binary system – in the sense that it’s effect is either fully on or fully off, and when it’s on it depowers everything, no mater how powerful the thing its suppressing and with no chance of resistance – then the Young Protectors are indeed helpless.
    However, if it has a powerful but nevertheless graded level of effectiveness, then anyone with sufficient heroic willpower or righteous rage will be able to overcome it. Red Hot is clearly the obvious candidate for this. (Indeed, I keep visualizing Red Hot learning the new trick of “Hey, neat! I don’t have to gesture with my hands to project flame. I can just project concentrated beams of blazing plasma from my eyes and use them to VAPORISE ANNHILATOR’S HEAD!”)

    That just leaves one further point of ambiguity. Annihilator has already been through that one instance in Hell where he thought Red Hot could not move from the chains that imprisoned the hero and thought Red Hot could not generate flames hot enough to harm Annihilator – and was proven wrong. There has been speculation that this may have been because Red Hot was empowered somewhat by being in the hell dimension of his father. This is possible. But is Annihilator sure of that? Or conversely, is Annihilator sure it wasn’t that, and is hoping for the hero to escape as an elaborate doublecross against the Priestess?

    And even if it is the case the Red Hot’s extra power levels were dependent on the energies and/or proximity of Laampros’ realm – very soon now a dimensional gate is going to open and those same energies are going to once again be boosting the power levels of a very pissed off Red Hot. Oversight or foresight on the part of Annihilator?

    • I like that theory, I would guess that both Kyles and Spookys powers are infact not mutant in origin which is what these “Power Dampeners” were designed to contain. I think this is why specifically they solo focus on both Kyle and Spooky. Kyles power are demonic and Spooky also gains his powers from a demonic hell realm. So as such there (unless demons are just handing out powers or popping out kids left and right) are very few they could have used to test this system on. Though we have seen that the dampener did work on Kyle before, yet PP’s magic invisible powder DID work, and Spookys powers are “Magic” so in a sense when Spooky wakes up this could cause quite a situation for Anni and PP.

  • Cman65

    And winning is so much better when the person you have beeten is there to see you doing it

  • I think Kyle wants to kiss Duncan in the mouth, very hard, with his fist. I’m trying to say I think Kyle wants to punch Duncan.

    • Pikinanou

      I agree. The only reason Kyle would want to get his mouth near Anni’s would be to bite him.

  • Falconfly

    I love how no one is paying attention to the fact that the Anihilator’s sympathetic motives have been fully solidified.

  • Whaaa? No more sharing buttons?

    • Hmm, yeah, there’s only Facebook and Twitter. There used to be others.

      • The misbehavior of that plugin was a reason for the slow loading times. :/ When I have a bit more time, I’ll look into alternate solutions.

        • I’ll take less options to share directly (there’s always copy-paste) over a slower site any day 🙂

          Hope you figure something out anyway.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Evil plugin… we clearly need a plugin dampener!

  • Dennis Grace

    “Whom,” Alex. “Who is going to kiss whom?”

    I don’t think Kyle’s look says, “Kiss me, Daddy.” I think it looks incredulous. It’s a look that says, “We’re misguided? Look at your partners, Old Man. Look in the piss-sour eyes of your Plutonium Princess. Do those eyes say ‘let’s save the world’?”

    • Chris Dangerfield

      You know, honestly, I’ve had that thought several times. Duncan is clearly NOT a stupid character and he’s been with Sircea a LONG time. I’ve always wondered why he assumes any part of their combined shenanigans is going to be good for HIM. Sircea is clearly the one with the power and 6,000 years of human experience. So, she is also not a character lacking in smarts.

      She doesn’t really seem to hide her self-serving side that much with Duncan, so it’s not like he can’t know. Now, unlike many, I don’t think he’s a closet hero who is suddenly going to do some “angelic thing.” However, I don’t want to believe he’s clueless. Thus, I think it’s a good question as to why he’s gone along with this plan, one that seems to put all the pressure of the “Laampros-bargain” on him.

      Alex, made a very clear point in other writings about how he re-wrote (at great effort) ARTIFICE because he felt that he’d gone in a direction that made the character of Mavin less intelligent than acceptable. So, I keep expecting the same here with Duncan, because as of this second he seems like he’s doing a stupid thing and I find that hard to accept.

      Often in yaoi, audiences want to believe behaviors like this are all about “forbidden/hidden love,” but if that’s the case with Kyle, then this is the most abusive love affair I can imagine. A lot of Japanese yaoi seems to thrive on one of the gay pair being very resistant and closeted. I don’t see that in Alex’s AU. Inexperienced perhaps, but not necessarily miserable and self-hating. However, that could just be my reading of things.

      So, all that said, Duncan is clearly someone who has no problem being cruel when he feels it serves him. So, his purpose, self-serving or not, still seems mysterious to me.

      • Klaus

        Duncan will get youth and perfect health unending. And he believes that this is the way to save the world. He most likley has confirmation independent from Sircea that the walls are weakening. Spooky has known for 6 years. For Sircea, honesty, up to a point, is probably the best policy. I doubt Duncan would have trusted her if she had claimed altruistic motives.

        Also, Duncan is the most powerful supervillain, and probably has been for decades. That is bound to do something to his ego. He would find it difficult to see himself as a pawn in somebody else’s scheme. Sircea has used and discarded puny humans for 6000 years, but he is clearly something special.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I think I’m in the minority here, but I actually believe that Duncan and Sircea were being totally genuine with each other in their previous discussion. I think they actually consider each other friends (as much as super-villains can consider anyone a “friend” given the egos and self-serving neuroses in play). They both genuinely want to save the world, and they both genuinely want to advance themselves in doing so. The basic difference is the amount of detachment. Sircea doesn’t really regard anyone individual as being TOO important, and Duncan gets by through denial and projecting blame (it’s not really HIS fault, you see. The situation dictated his actions, and he did everything he could to minimize casualties).

        And in that light, Duncan really isn’t a pawn here. If something goes wrong and Laampros exacts his revenge, which of the pair would it be best to loose regarding the issue of saving the walls? Duncan. From a purely logistical and tactical standpoint it would make no sense for Sircea to be the one bearing Laampros’s mark. Sircea wouldn’t be (consciously) manipulating him, just following the course of good sensibility. They are still evil, self serving villains of glorious degree (although PP is head and shoulders the more glorious), but that doesn’t mean that they have to be plotting each other demise Snidely Whiplash style.

  • Zeruk

    Ahhh I was misguided, all along. Its not that holding Tue heroes hostage was insane to her. It was the fact that they were still ALIVE…jeesh. Although I guess she has a point….an evil point..

    • Tyler Griffin

      Well, she IS a super-villain

  • somebody

    I have quite a tough time at the moment and I don’t really have the time to sleep or eat as much as I want…
    but thanks to that absolute stress it feels like yesterday since I last read this super thrilling chapter what makes me kinda happy :3
    can’t wait for the next page <3

  • Jason Wexler

    So I love this comic, I love the characters, but Duncan is dead wrong. Kill them… kill them now, don’t be a Bond villain. Sircea, if he doesn’t kill them now, do it for him, if you don’t you will fail.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Dr. Evil: All right guard, begin the unnecessarily slow-moving dipping mechanism (over the shark tank).

      Dr. Evil: Close the tank!

      Jason Evil: Wait, aren’t you even going to watch them? They could get away!

      Dr. Evil: No no no, I’m going to leave them alone and not actually witness them dying, I’m just gonna assume it all went to plan. What?

      Jason Evil: I have a gun, in my room, you give me five seconds, I’ll get it, I’ll come back down here, BOOM, I’ll blow their brains out!

      Dr. Evil: Jason, you just don’t get it, do ya? You don’t.

      😀

      • Jason Wexler

        I am with you until the second line you gave me…. if I am really evil, I am carrying the guns on me, I draw them without hesitation, and use one to kill the heroes, and the other to kill Dr. Evil. I’ve read http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html if the heroes are going to rely on me making painfully stupid decisions so that they can win at the last minute, I’ve got this in the bag!

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Darn you, you SMART villain you! 😀

    • Tyler Griffin

      It’s amusing how much Hate PP is getting simply for being competent at her job XD

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    The actual “truth”, as I see it, is that Duncan is a self absorbed ass hole. If he kills them…..which would be the end of this wonderful comic…..he will first play with them…..no telling what he plans to do to them or with them.

  • Jason Wexler

    In spite of my demand that Duncan kill the heroes, I will posit that he is keeping them alive to help him overcome the multiple double crosses he will receive from Sircea and Lampross after the barriers are repaired.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I almost understood that. Nicely complicated and rather believable.

      • Tyler Griffin

        Nah. I don’t think he’s that complicated about this. He simply balked at the idea of cold blooded murder, and now is winging it.

        • Tyler Griffin

          I had a much longer and in depth breakdown of how Duncan has spent his life justifying his actions by telling himself he’s minimizing casualties everywhere he can, but then the page refreshed for some reason T.T

  • Jac

    I don’t think I can explain how much I want a Sircea cosplay.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      You get some serious bravery points for even considering a metal bustier like that. You go! Make sure Alex gets some picture to post!! 🙂

      You figure out how to make that aluminum foil stay in place and we will worship for the goddess you are (and the goddess you are impersonating).

      • purplefoxglove

        Glue. Lots of glue. The real problem will be how to get the stuff OFF again 😉

  • You know, even with knowing all we know (as far as Alex will let us know) I still want to believe in Duncan. I mean just look at that face in the last panel.

    Now!!! That doesn’t mean I don’t want Kyle to kick his (sexy sexy) ass, because dude, so not cool. I just want to believe.

      Have you lost your faith, First Officer?
      Do you need a life jacket? A bucket? A Gospel by Duncan?

      • We’ve be uh *spits out water* taking on a lot of water lately in this most recent storm.

        • SofiaT

          Nonsense! The water level is now exactly where it was 2 chapters ago: over our heads 😀

          But everything will be ok in the end. If it’s not ok, then it’s not the end 😉

          • *looks at measuring stick without needing to squint* So it is. In that case I could use a bigger bucket and some scuba gear. 😀

    Use hell-fire, Kyle!! PUNISH HIM!

      Personally, I think now would be a good time for Kyle to discover he can blast people with napalm… yeah… seriously hot AND sticky. AND not in the good way. :/

    • Chris Dangerfield

      HA! True that!

  • Ahhhhhhhhhhhh love being back in the main story. Feels like ages since I’ve read YP. (because it has been >_>) My love for Anni remains the same. 😀

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Reading these comments (as well as those in the past)…

    One of the unknowns I find most interesting in this story is that majority of the audience seems to deeply desire Duncan to have a redeemable heroic reason for his actions. Something that will explain his abusive behavior to Kyle and make him likable, acceptable or, at least, understandable. Theories like double agents, love for Kyle, etc, etc… redeemable are scattered throughout comments everywhere.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch. I haven’t seen one comment (excepting Sylibub who loves her villainess for who she is) that shows a desire that a sudden plot turn will turn Sircea into the unexpected hero with the heart of gold, and leave Duncan as the selfish black hat.

    I wonder why that is? At the very least it’s interesting to ponder.

      • Klaus

        We have now been warned!

      • SofiaT

        Hm. Male violence is a symptom of a messed-up society, not something men are born with. And the infamous female viciousness (also known as “bitchiness”) is one of those myths that were created and have been perpetuated because it suits the anti-feminist sentiment of the (same) messed-up society.

        I’m careful not to attribute personality characteristics to a whole gender -I think Sircea would have worked just as well as the ultimate villain if she was a man and Duncan’s grayness would work well if he was a woman (Catwoman comes in mind).

        It’s the qualities they’ve exhibited so far, their actions, their non-actions and their words that have guided our judgment, I believe. Man, woman or anything else is irrelevant.

        • Klaus

          I think woman tend to underhanded tactics because society leaves them less room for direct action than men.

          • SofiaT

            I’ve seen plenty of underhandedness coming from men; gas-lighting, emotional manipulation, financial control… you name it. I don’t think either gender has a specific tendency to it.

          • Klaus

            There are certainly plenty of underhanded men. And I don’t think women has an innate tendency. But society pushes them in that direction.

          • SofiaT

            Again, that’s the (plausible) justification of a widely-believed myth. First we created the idea that women are bitchy, then we tried to come up with the why.

            It’s one in a long line of similar other myths, like women’s friendships not being as strong or as honest as those of men (research has shown the opposite is true) or the idea that women are more prone to gossip (again, false). Or, to mention a bias against men, the idea that men recover from broken relationships quicker than women: they don’t.

            It’s in nobody’s best interests for such gender biases to be perpetuated.

          • MrtvyCasomeric

            Personally, I greatly detest the application of gender stereotypes as blanket descriptors. They tend to be mostly invalid, although natural variation in personalities ensures that there will at least be some people who are a fairly close fit to them.
            One thing I found intriguing was a trial conducted on the social dynamics of four-year-old children where, in a dispute (e.g. one toy among three children), a group of boys happily fought each other over snatching the toy while a group of girls used exclusion tactics on the one who took possession of the toy in order to guilt and pressure her into abandoning it and playing with them.

            Even if there would be anything saying there’s a natural tendency for one gender to do something over another, it still means little to nothing for adults since we have years to build up our own personality and become socially functional individuals.

          • SofiaT

            While I agree with you, I’d like to point out the language used here:

            The boys “happily fought” while the girls “used exclusion tactics”.

            Fighting, means physical violence, a physical alteration. But add “happily” to it and it’s seen as something good, a perfectly acceptable way to solve a problem.

            On the other hand the girls showing their displeasure at the girl who didn’t want to share her toy by excluding her from the game is seen as a “tactic” -something they must have consciously planned to do in order to get what they want.

            I’ve seen the same many times when talking of adult situations: men who say what they want are assertive, women who say what they want are bossy. Same situation, two different words, two different implications.

            I’m not saying that your use of language was deliberate (it’s very possible you even copied the language from whatever it was that you read about the experiment). But language does matter. Language forms our opinions, our expectations and, in the end, our reality.

          • …I would not suggest that “happily” always means good. When I hear “happily fought” it brings to mind that there wasn’t any hesitancy or uncertainty about fighting. That they aren’t being coerced into fighting and it is something that both sides want. It isn’t something good, but something that makes them happy. Just like I am sure certain villains would happily watch the world burn.

          • SofiaT

            The word “happy” has good connotations.
            There’s no way around that.

          • I would argue that “happy” has the connotation of pleasure not good.

          • SofiaT

            “Good” in the sense of positive.
            We can argue about this all you want, but words have positive connotations, neutral or negative ones.

            “Happy” firmly belongs to the first category.
            Just like “vicious” belongs to the last.

          • “Good” and “positive” can be completely subjective. Things that make people happy are things they find pleasure in. Things people find pleasurable might not be “good” or “positive”.

          • SofiaT

            We can get into a very theoretical debate about what is good or positive that will never end but the main deal is this:

            When you read about that experiment -or whatever it was- in the language in which it was described, the impression you’re left with is that boys fight good-naturedly, taking direct action (as Klaus would say) and then go back to being friends because, meh, it was just a fight and boys will be boys. While the girls are devious, underhanded and bitchy.

            You can deny that if you want -I’ve also heard people say that the word “bossy” used to describe assertive women is not bad, so each to their own- but that’s what it boils down to. The language we use makes a difference whether we admit it or not.

            Change “the boys happily fought” and “the girls used exclusion tactics” with “the boys resorted to violence” and “the girls used diplomacy” and what you get is the exact opposite result, the exact opposite impression of what that experiment meant.

          • However, the statement about the boys is still relatively straightforward and the changed statement about the girls is misleading. “The girls used diplomacy” doesn’t tell how things turned out. You know what happened with the boys, they fought. Was there a “happy ending” to the “diplomacy” or did “negotiations” “fall through”. It might be more accurate to say that the girls formed an alliance/coalition that excluded the other girl than just saying they used diplomacy.

          • SofiaT

            And now you see how easy it is to manipulate language to make the situation fit whatever it is that you want it to fit.

            And with this, I’m out of this discussion. *bows out*

          • MrtvyCasomeric

            Oops, very accidental; I had no idea my words could be taken that way. That teaches me for writing while sleep-deprived.
            I guess more accurate would be that the boys had a happy little tussle for the toy (from my memory, they were all smiling) and the girls were all equally happy while employing their less direct method – when one realised she was being excluded, she just abandoned the contested toy, joined the others in what they were doing, and everything was all smiles again.

            I do remember that the word ‘tactic’ was directly from the source. I agree with what you’ve said about it implying a largely conscious decision to deliberately execute a set of actions, so hopefully ‘method’ is a slightly more acceptable substitute for now.

    • Connor

      I’ve never seen Sircea as a wicked witch or as a real villain. Just as a witch, and a witch is before all a pragmatist. I have no doubt that she does genuinely want to save the world, nor do I have any expectation that guilt will keep her up at night if a few billion innocents die in the process.

      She takes no pleasure in harming others, but if they might prevent her from achieving her goal, they must be eliminated. In a different situation, those exact same character traits would make others regard her with admiration.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I see her as a wicked witch, and a true villain, she is totally self serving here, and lack of empathy is at the heart of most evil actions. But I still think she it utterly awesome and would gladly serve her army of nefarious intent.

      There are villains and then there are villains.

      There’s a reason people LOVE Darth Vader but everyone hates Emperor Palpantine. There’s a reason Snape has a devoted fan base but nobody likes Voldermort.

      There’s a reason emo Kylo Ren, with all his tantrums and anger issues has already become a fan-favorite even after doing you-know-what… but Snoke? We all narrow our eyes when thinking of him and the part he’s playing.

      Alex is a good storyteller. He knows that to tell an engaging story, you need an engaging antagonist, someone who is easy to believe is not completely evil, someone fascinating in his complexity.

      And then you need the ultimate villain, the one whose demise you’ll enjoy.

      I understand that for you it’s probably the other way around for reasons of your own, but for most people it’s obvious who is who in this story.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I somewhat disagree. I don’t find Snape of Voldy to be irredeemably evil. We have canon WoG that Voldemort would be clinically insane by muggle standards, and was from EARLY on in his life. While the mentally ill but be held accountable for their actions, they get a much higher tolerance before being written off as the 1D big nasty. UMBRIDGE, however… *shudders*. I don’t think PP is any worse that Duncan at all. Duncan took emotional advantage of another person, deliberately preyed on a minor, and committed an act of (maybe not outright rape depending on your personal definitions, but certainly and act of sexual assault). These actions put him beyond redemption for me. Period. That doesn’t mean that I think he is Satan incarnate, he can still have good point, and even noble intentions. But his crimes cannot be paid for. There is no action that he can take which would redeem him in my eyes.

        Sircea is just the same. I can genuinely believe that she genuinely wants to save the world here (in her own self serving way), but in doing so she is willing to consign a huge part of humanity an extended period of slavery and (implied) sexual abuse (She stated that Laampros and his minions tastes in torture and suffering would not kill of even seriously physically endanger most of their victims, so either they are psychic mind invaders who delight in driving victim insane, or well, lets not be TOOOOO graphic in the comments section that minors can access :P). She can still be an engaging, complex, and thouroughly enjoyable character (Hell, I’d probably sign up to serve in her army if I could, she’s just glorious to behold), but she is beyond redemption.

        To see either of these characters as redeemable or irredeemable, without also seeing the other the same way, IS displaying a personal bias of some variety, just not necesarrily one that is problematic. Perhaps one just finds the concept of metal bikinis that don’t even have the humility to need straps (no those arrogant little bits of totally non-practial metal just STICK there) offensive? ;P

          “Perhaps one just finds the concept of metal bikinis that don’t even have
          the humility to need straps (no those arrogant little bits of totally
          non-practial metal just STICK there) offensive? ;P”

          Ah, nothing beats being accused of internalised misogyny and slut-shaming first thing in the morning.

          You may see in Sircea values and a purpose that I don’t, and make all kinds of assumptions for her (or for Duncan too if that pleases you) but I’d thank you to not make assumptions about me.

          Have a nice day!

On the contrary, I like that she’s rocking a bikini at an age (the age she looks to be, not the age she actually is) when most women are told to hide themselves lest they insult others’ sense of aesthetics. I thought that was pretty great on Alex’s part!

            Which is why I don’t appreciate it when it’s implied that my not liking her is due to what she wears, when I’ve shown no such evidence.
            Women, fictional or not, should wear whatever they like without being judged on it.

            *Note: if she was an action hero like Amanda, I would indeed have an issue with her wearing a bikini, because as you pointed out it’s far from practical. But for a sorceress who relies on her magic and -very possibly- on her sexual allure to get things done, I think her current “uniform” makes perfect sense. 🙂

          • Kate G

            This, this is true. I’ve never liked that it doesn’t have straps though. How does it stay on? MAGIC? Super glue? Extremely tough double-sided tape? I’ve always thought it needed some straps as I can’t figure that bit out from perspective of gravity.

            I definitely don’t like that idea of people thinking I hate someone based on an outfit. I can run my tongue all day on the impracticality of some superhero outfits (read: Wonder Woman and her strapless wonder one piece. Don’t even get me started) but it definitely doesn’t mean I don’t love them. Wonder Woman is a great character…despite the outfit I can rage about all day. (Give me WW 600 from Injustice. THAT IS AN OUTFIT.)

            I haven’t quite made up my mind about PP. I see both sides, but I can’t put myself in either camp because I feel like I just don’t have enough intel on her. I think I’ve said it before but she intrigues me. I just can’t make heads or tails on my position on her.

          • SofiaT

            Have we ever seen her without her cape to assume there is no support for the breast plates? I can’t remember. I always assumed they went around her shoulders. If not, then magic?

            There is no question The PP is magnificent. She has flair, she’s canny and ruthless. She’s also completely flawless. She has shown no weaknesses so far, no love for anything or anyone other than herself and no care for anything that doesn’t directly benefit her. I doubt she even likes Duncan.
            She’s like the gods of old, who cared only for their amusement and saw humans as little better than ants.

            Duncan on the other hand is deeply flawed, conflicted, he has a skewed moral compass but still cares about what happens to the world -in short, he’s human.

            I can relate to a flawed human, I can’t relate to a god(dess). Seeing Sircea fall will be a pleasure. >:D

            Second best outcome, seeing her become human herself. Starting to care about someone else for a change. Now that would be an interesting twist.

          • Kate G

            We’ve seen her in two outfits. She has one where the cape is attached to her metal corset in Chapter 2:

            http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch3-page-98/

            We know she has a flaw; she lost her immortality. How she lost that we don’t know yet. I still want to know more about her before I put my foot on either side (or I may forever be stuck in limbo with her. Love to hate her or hate to love her.) I love trying to figure her out.

          • Klaus

            Double sided tape is my guess.

          • SofiaT

            I hope not, that thing hurts like hell when you take it off.

          • Klaus

            PP is tough.

          • Tyler Griffin

            Huh? Internalized misogymy??? I was going for a joke about personifying the bikini itself. And the joke was that the bikini was arrogant to think that it didn’t even need straps to stay in place, I had no intention or thought as to any sort of.. I don’t even know where to go from here.. But misogyny and slut shaming had no part in my thought process. Perhaps if you’d bother to read ANY of my comments about Sircea you’d notice that I have done nothing but sing praises about what a great character she is and how she just comes of as being so glamorous IMO? Either way, I an genuinely sorry that my comment did not read as the meaningless banter it was intended as, and that it seems to have struck a nerve.

    • Midori Ren

      I think it’s morals dissonance caused by time. She’s been around a while, and I think being one of the few to outlive the world’s humans has given her a different perspective on death. Putting forth such effort to save the world’s humans, even the majority at the cost of a few, means she really cares. While she goes overboard at times, she seems to have a heart. It’s Duncan I’m not sure about, to be honest. She’s right to be suspicious of him. I think she wants to kill the Young Protectors not because they’re heroes or a threat themselves, but because they’re a temptation to Duncan to ruin everything. I think if Duncan weren’t there, she’d just disarm them and carry on.

      • Columbine

        I don’t disagree exactly but if they’d been going for the ‘save the majority’ thing they’d have argued for Asia not North America. Cos 4 billion vs 0.5 billion isn’t a huge contest.

        • Tyler Griffin

          Yeah, but China has actually managed to wreck their ecosystem even worse than we have ours (and we’re the nation that’s pumping lube into dormant fault lines in the deep bedrock).

          • Columbine

            I’m not from North America pet. And I know very little about the relative ecological damage in USA/Canada vs China, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia etc etc etc- But PP and Annie are sort of asking for Phenomenal Cosmic Power already, so I’d say if they really wanted to save the most lives they’d still go Asia. With may be a few sub-clauses.

          • Tyler Griffin

            I could see PP, we have implied background that in her 6000+ year lifespan she is VERY multicultural and likely would not have any ethnicity based hang-up as to who she ruled. Duncan might have a subconscious bias for N America, being N American himself. Speaking as a tried an true, red blooded American myself, if I were he; it likely would never have even crossed my mind to consider arguing for saving a different continent. However, hindsight and your observation, make it obvious that going for the highest population landmass WOULD save the most people.

        • Midori Ren

          Perhaps they thought if they tried for Asia, Laampros would decide he was getting the crap end of the deal and back out, so they settled for the less populated lands protected by oceans instead. They (or at least, Duncan for the both of them) claimed both Americas, not just the northern one. It was suggested what the demons want is humans, not land.

          • Columbine

            That is a good point, about the demons. Although the numbers thing still stands if you include South America (I think both are a billion? Or nearly) I’m still not convinced the Americas are the best choice if your main aim is saving as many lives as possible. The Indian subcontenient isn’t completely surrounded by water but there are other natural defenses along those borders and a higher population. Personally I think they chose the Americas not for safety or saving people but because of attachment (I think Duncan is American?) and possibly space and infrastructure.

          • Klaus

            Duncan is from Brighton. There are many places named Brighton in several countries, but “Brighton”, without qualifications, generally means the one in England.

          • Columbine

            I’d actually forgotten that. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he feels Brighton/England is home.

          • Klaus

            Even Lex Luther settled for Australia.

      • Klaus

        She may just prefer to live among humans rather than demons.

    • Alt+F7

      I think it’s because Sircea has never seemed to regret the harm she causes, or sown a softer side. Duncan at least professes to be doing this for “the greater good” as he sees it, while I cannot recall Sircea having any motivation beyond her own self interest.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I disagree, she was very lighthearted and soft sides when we first met her in that back alley (Now THAT’S a hilarious way to describe an encounter with the PP). She was soft spoken, even gentle natured towards Kyle, and lighthearted enough that all of us viewers agreed she was taking “liberties” with the Tentacles of Wardrobe spell. We have Seen Sircea in a setting where she was not threatened, working towards her goal, and totally not harsh/scary. If their story is to be believed, the Sircea would have to have been the one to first become aware of the weakening of the walls, as she would be the only sane person with the proper magical sensing to notice. Which would mean that she was the one deliberately setting out to find others capable and willing to do What Must Be Done For the Good of All. The fact that she has built in some totally self serving goals doesn’t entirely negate that. She COULD have decided to simply make use of the weakening walls to regain her lost abilities without any regard for saving the world.

        • Alt+F7

          Hey, Sorry for not replying to this, I haven’t logged into disqus for .. seems to be a month.

          Thank you for the detailed analysis. It is very thorough.

    • Wildroses

      In my case, I wouldn’t call it a deep desire rather than a judgement based on my observation that seems so obvious it isn’t worth discussing. For me it is pretty clear what their motivations for doing this terrible thing is after the conversation they had before they were attacked. Duncan had moral qualms about their plan, but has decided to go through with it because he is seriously afraid of what might happen if he doesn’t. He believes there is a heroic reason for his actions, that he is doing the right thing (let’s just avoid redeemable as it is a whole new issue). But Sircea is doing it for pure self-interest. She just wants the power. There is no heroic reason for her actions. And villains who believe they are doing the right thing are more fun to speculate about as they have the greater chance of switching sides than one who is in it for the power.

      And there is also the romantic aspect. Some people want Duncan to be redeemed so that Kyle’s broken heart is glued back together, and because they got fond of Duncan while he was courting Kyle (I’m not one of them by the way, pre-Flyboy bonus story I wanted Kyle and Mitch to get together not because I thought they were a well suited couple but because if Kyle was with Mitch he couldn’t ever be with Duncan). Sircea never got much screen time during the courtship and seduction chapters while Duncan was in practically every page, so not as many people are invested in her as a character. We only really started to get a sense of who she was and what made her tick when she argued with Duncan about what they were doing.

      It does make me wonder about how the fanbase discussions would have unfolded if Kyle was straight and Sircea had seduced him as they initially planned. Maybe people would be more inclined to give Sircea the benefit of the doubt before condemning her and be grasping at the tiniest hint that she could be redeemed, while sneering at Duncan’s doubts as proof of his mental and moral weakness in getting so far before wondering if this was a good idea.

      • Columbine

        I kind of feel like villains who think they’re doing the right thing are often more scary and less reasonable. I’m thinking of Terry Pratchett’s description of Inquisition torturers in ‘Small Gods’ (There are hardly any excesses of the most crazed psychopath that cannot
        easily be duplicated by a normal kindly family man who just comes in to
        work every day and has a job to do.) I guess for me part of the hero-villain dynamic is an argument, basically. And if the villain is absolutely totally convinced they’re right then that’s a key part of the battle the hero hasn’t got a chance of winning.

        • Wildroses

          Probably a lot of my prior reading history is in the forefront of my mind there in saying characters who believe they are doing the right thing are more likely to switch sides is colouring me there. I read a lot of fantasy and SF which tends not to have many shades of grey in their heroes and villains, and the good character who is working for evil who does a heel face turn when they finally notice is quite common there. (One of my favourite Evil Overlord list items is: “I will never utter the phrase ‘Yes, I did that, but you’ll never prove it to that fool’ because that fool is almost certainly hiding behind the curtains.”)

          Absolutely totally convinced their right villains probably can’t be forced to believe otherwise by the heroes and will never switch sides, but when you get ones that aren’t absolutely totally convinced that is when the exciting possibility of switching sides arises. And in the context of the Young Protectors, I don’t consider Duncan one of absolutely totally convinced ones.

          He’s basically decided to hand people over to demons because he thinks there is no other way of repairing these walls he and Sircea are so upset about, and because he doesn’t want the Mark of Laampros to liquefy his organs. If presented with an alternative which has the walls fixed without hell on earth and him dying, I think Duncan would switch sides in a heartbeat. Sircea I don’t think would.

    • Columbine

      We’ve seen far more of Duncan than Sircea. It’s a lot easier to relate to him and enjoy his character because we’ve seen him in less villainous contexts. Whereas almost all we’ve seen of Sircea is as the villain. Mostly I just feel like I don’t know her enough to judge her true motives or how reliable her stated motives are.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      I’ve taken some time to think this over (and as a result am somewhat late to the party). Your point about the way that fandom is treating Duncan versus Sircea is an interesting point. I think I’m in the camp that Duncan has made statements about doing whatever is necessary, yet despite his claims that he is not one to cling to regrets, he keeps making mopey-face, and this gives an interesting ambiguity about excatly how he’ll react and indeed what his exact plans are. To the best of my recollection Sircea has shown not such dichotomy. Her character is nuanced in different ways that derive from her being 6,000 years old (as I ranted about in that essay a few years ago about what it implies that a several millenia old person uses phrases like “Bibbity bobbity boo”).

      As for whether doublecrossing the other villains is an example of Duncan being redeemable. Hmm. No. I probably thought that way once, but I’d have to check the old comments to be remind myself and be sure. However I know there are times when I’m both soppy and tend to think in cliches, so thinking Duncan was redeemable is the type of line of thought that I would have used pre-helldate. Now, however, I’m anticipated a complicated three way chess game of treachery and doublecrossing between three explicit villians with the heroes of YP stuck in the middle.

      (Dark and nasty afterthought: Which is not to say that Duncan might not try and win Red Hot over, merely that he’s not redeemable. Right now I would armchair-psychoanalysise Duncan as not yet having reached the same point as Sircea, where he is comfortable with the idea of mass-murder even with a plausible seeming excuse of ‘for the greater good’. I think on a subconscious level he metaphorically wants someone to pat him on the back and say “There there, it was a tough but necessary descision, and you made the right call.” In that regard I think he’s being foolish if he thinks that Red Hot would ever fit that role.)

I will re-read the past chapter differently with my new understanding of Mitch. So I entirely relate. Thanks for digging deep and sharing how the past meets present for you.

        Very much appreciated.

      Lots of great comments below — my opinion is that, generally, fans are more attached to Duncan and eager to see him redeemed because the vast majority of the story we saw up to the point of Duncan’s betrayal was from Kyle’s perspective. Meaning, we were romanced along with Kyle in that we got to see Duncan be charming, funny, intriguing, and with an alluring hint of danger — and then got to experience the gut-punch of realizing Duncan was playing Kyle/us all along. Kyle may or may not be capable of forgiving Duncan at this point, no matter what Duncan might do to redeem himself, but as the more indirect sufferers of Duncan’s betrayal, with the added benefit of being privy to his inner conflict about his actions, we as readers want to believe we weren’t completely misled and that yes, there is good in him, [we’ve] felt it. I might have messed that quote up royally; it’s been a long time since I’ve seen Star Wars, but y’know. Basically, it would be a crying shame if Duncan was set up with all this complexity, then turned out to be a straightforward bad guy after all.

      Everyone freaking knows my thoughts about Sircea at this point, too, but to reiterate (ad nauseam, ad infinitum): she’s a whole other bag of crazy cats. She’s lived so much longer than we’re meant to, and has by necessity gone through so much psychological adaptation, I’m not sure she technically qualifies as “human” the way we’re accustomed to defining it. She’s got it together enough that she’s recognizably “people,” and casual conversation like in Chapter 1 doesn’t reveal anything amiss, but her worldview must be so different than normally lifespanned people as to be almost entirely separate. It’s why I personally can accept and even enjoy her extreme pragmatism and self-interest. She’s fascinating! And I don’t want to write another eighty paragraphs about her, but part of why she’s fascinating is that, way back when, she fought on behalf of humanity, and to me that leaves the possibility open that she might be persuaded to do so again if circumstances are dire enough (and if she benefits in the process). I think she’s likely disillusioned enough by humanity at this point that she’ll never be a “good guy” again — but she might not have to become Ultimate Evil, even if she lingers in a darkish-gray area. I think Laampros could fill the evil role admirably.

        BEST REPLY EVAH! Thanks for this smart thoughtful addition. It makes a great deal of sense in the great unknown of the TYP universe.

        Much appreciated!

    Reading these comments (as well as those in the past)…

    One of the unknowns I find most interesting in this story is that majority of the audience seems to deeply desire Duncan to have a redeemable heroic reason for his actions. Something that will explain his abusive behavior to Kyle and make him likable, acceptable or, at least, understandable. Theories like double agents, love for Kyle, etc, etc… redeemable are scattered throughout comments everywhere.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch. I haven’t seen one comment (excepting Sylibub who loves her villainess for who she is) that shows a desire that a sudden plot turn will turn Sircea into the unexpected hero with the heart of gold, and leave Duncan as the selfish black hat.

    I wonder why that is? At the very least it’s interesting to ponder.

Theories like double agents, love for Kyle, etc, etc… redeemable are scattered throughout comments everywhere.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch. I haven’t seen one comment (excepting Sylibub who loves her villainess for who she is) that shows a desire that a sudden plot turn will turn Sircea into the unexpected hero with the heart of gold, and leave Duncan as the selfish black hat.

    I wonder why that is? At the very least it’s interesting to ponder.

    One of the unknowns I find most interesting in this story is that majority of the audience seems to deeply desire Duncan to have a redeemable heroic reason for his actions. Something that will explain his abusive behavior to Kyle and make him likable, acceptable or, at least, understandable. Theories like double agents, love for Kyle, etc, etc… redeemable are scattered throughout comments everywhere.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch. I haven’t seen one comment (excepting Sylibub who loves her villainess for who she is) that shows a desire that a sudden plot turn will turn Sircea into the unexpected hero with the heart of gold, and leave Duncan as the selfish black hat.

    I wonder why that is? At the very least it’s interesting to ponder.

    One of the unknowns I find most interesting in this story is that majority of the audience seems to deeply desire Duncan to have a redeemable heroic reason for his actions. Something that will explain his abusive behavior to Kyle and make him likable, acceptable or, at least, understandable. Theories like double agents, love for Kyle, etc, etc… redeemable are scattered throughout comments everywhere.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch. I haven’t seen one comment (excepting Sylibub who loves her villainess for who she is) that shows a desire that a sudden plot turn will turn Sircea into the unexpected hero with the heart of gold, and leave Duncan as the selfish black hat.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch.

    I wonder why that is? At the very least it’s interesting to ponder.

Something that will explain his abusive behavior to Kyle and make him likable, acceptable or, at least, understandable. Theories like double agents, love for Kyle, etc, etc… redeemable are scattered throughout comments everywhere.

    However, no one seems to care if Sircea is the ultimate villain of this story. The unredeemable wicked witch. I haven’t seen one comment (excepting Sylibub who loves her villainess for who she is) that shows a desire that a sudden plot turn will turn Sircea into the unexpected hero with the heart of gold, and leave Duncan as the selfish black hat.

    I wonder why that is? At the very least it’s interesting to ponder.

    OF course, Duncan, The Annihilator, might not be a double agent, just a complete dupe to the double-crossing plans of Laampros who secretly promised her queen-ship of half the world in exchange for this ceremony. Her insanity might have expressed itself in a belief that she can fix the walls that separate dimensions.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Thank you all below for the thoughtful and interesting comments. My biases aside (and SofiaT is correct I do have personal lines relating to actions actually taken vs. intentions however good, and those shape my feelings about Duncan), however I really was noticing a constant desire “in the comments”, which I do read, related to Duncan which seemed lacking for Sircea, and that even when I was taking lesser page count into consideration. So, I was curious.

    I think both characters are fantastically engaging, appealing and Alex is “just that good”… but the audience reaction and desire for them seemed one-sided.

    So, I got what I was hoping for: A few smart comments from people who comment less overall. More comments about Sircea, whom I find complex and delicious. Comments about Duncan that were based in more complex issues than just sexual attraction and romance.

    Some expected comments (but nicely thoughtful) about how gender shapes our hopes for the two of them — I thought the comment about Kyle being straight and Sircea the emotional “abuser” (I think ‘rapist’, but I know many don’t so I’ll leave that there) was very interesting and sent my brain skittering off in another direction.

    And finally a really interesting discussion regarding behaviors associated with genders (both myth and truths) and the possibility that they may start as biological behaviors in children (which I hadn’t previously heard), but unfortunately seem to be excused and thus perpetuated in adults… females excluding others when they don’t get what they want is just as unacceptable in adults as the male behaviors. It’s very interesting.

    Yaoi is so filled with a wide variety of types of writers, so often using gay men to tell their stories, that it’s always a complex discussion about the cause of the need to take characters from one medium (say film) and make two of them gay and make an OTP that previously didn’t exist.

    Creating gay/female characters seems to happen much less than that of gay males. I’ve honestly asked many creators (most of whom were female) and still not found any single set of reasons. And that’s not criticism on my part. I’ve happily consumed reams of LGBT OC/fanfic and been grateful for it. However, the different drives that create it may never be completely understandable to me.

    However, it does make me note that there is rarely (if ever) a discussion about how the audience might feel if Kyle was Amanda on the hell-date (gay or straight). With Sircea or Duncan as the abuser. Yet, I do appreciate that people generously shared their feelings about almost every other combination.

    One of the things I’ve always appreciated is how clear Alex’s goals have been regarding all these issues with his ORIGINAL characters. I do believe that truly signals a worthy purpose and is a main reason I’m a hard core fan. Creator motivations are not always so easy for people to put into words. It’s also true that not many creators are as good with words as Alex. So there is that.

    One other thing that a discussion like this makes me realize is how the intersectional nature of it all is not only about feminism, but all of LGBTQIA. When we start adding on all the other factors of gender, race, privilege (ie. Mitch & Cory) we start to see so many character shapes and motivations intersect… and none of them are any simpler than they are in life. It’s impressive in TYP.

    I’ll stop the TL:DR, but thanks again for taking the time and effort to contribute smart thoughts. It’s nice to see that the audience reaction to Duncan and Sircea is much more varied and thoughtful than I’d observed. Smart fandoms are much more fun. Take care.

    – Chris

      It’s funny I noticed recently that I seem to write a lot more gay male characters than lesbians. Especially in fanfiction. In fanfiction it’s easier to explain, it’s about which characters tend to be single, which canon pairings I like and what I like in a character. It’s rare to see a female character who doesn’t have some kind of established romantic history because it’s often used as a major sub-plot for them. With my own writing I rarely seem to touch any kind of romance, it’s not that I don’t enjoy writing it but that I don’t feel it should be the main focus. And then once you’ve made re-writing history the focus romance naturally takes a back seat…

    • JesBelle

      I think that a Duncan or Sircea emotionally manipulating Amanda into a sexual encounter is different, not because she is female, but because she is completely mature — her brain included. Kyle’s prefrontal cortex has a few more years until it has fully developed, making him more impulsive and easier to manipulate. It’s definitely not nice behavior, but with Amanda, at least the playing field is a bit more level.

      There you go, a comment from another person who rarely comments (here).

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Thanks. I’m not sure I agree about the gender aspect as it relates to our reader’s emotional responses… but I’m not sure I disagree either. So, I’m no use. Heh.

        However, I think your point about maturity affecting issues of romance, desire and sex (as we observe them in relation to Kyle and Duncan pre-date) are right on.

        There is no question that Amanda is miles ahead of all her charges in the maturity arena. If she was the target of S&D’s villainy, they would have had to do something extremely different to have a hope of success. I just know that being gay and ‘coming out of the closet’ is a very vulnerable thing. No question that Amanda would NOT be so affected. It’s not simply about gender, but about the person within the gender. So that’s a good point.

        Thank you for sharing.

        However, I think your point about maturity affecting issues of romance, desire and sex (as we observe them in relation to Kyle and Duncan pre-date) are right on.

        There is no question that Amanda is miles ahead of all her charges in the maturity arena. If she was the target of S&D’s villainy, they would have had to do something extremely different to have a hope of success. I just know that being gay and ‘coming out of the closet’ is a very vulnerable thing. No question that Amanda would NOT be so affected. It’s not simply about gender, but about the person within the gender. So that’s a good point.

        Thank you for sharing.

        Thanks. I’m not sure I agree about the gender aspect as it relates to our reader’s emotional responses… but I’m not sure I disagree either. So, I’m no use. Heh.

        However, I think your point about maturity affecting issues of romance, desire and sex (as we observe them in relation to Kyle and Duncan pre-date) are right on.

        There is no question that Amanda is miles ahead of all her charges in the maturity arena. If she was the target of S&D’s villainy, they would have had to do something extremely different to have a hope of success. I just know that being gay and ‘coming out of the closet’ is a very vulnerable thing. No question that Amanda would NOT be so affected. It’s not simply about gender, but about the person within the gender. So that’s a good point.

        Thank you for sharing.

    Love has it limits. I think that even if Dear Duncan can manage to pull off a hat trick, as they say, and somehow manages to both double cross and subdue Old Silver Head there there’s no future in Dyle for him. Betrayal, like a heavy dose of VD, is one of those things a neophyte love, such as this on, can scarcely survive.

    And I don’t think the look in our petit devi-hero’s eyne is so much one of passion as it is a fervid worth pressing down on Dear Duncan like a fastened lid on the seething pressure cooker that is this situation.

    I wonder whom to be more afraid of at this moment: Laampros, the negligent paterfamilias deity whom shan’t be all to gay when crossed; Old Silver Head Sircea, the dethroned sudo-goddess whom is ever seeking a mantle that shan’t ever truly be hers and whom will be even the merrier at being crossed.

    Or our Kyle, whom has yet to fully realized his raison d’être and now, possibly, sit at the precipice of that discovery and with a blazing need to protect those whom he deeply cares for and a bit of a need to get even with the source of the current situation.

  • Tyler Griffin

    Had a though. What if those sacrifices in the box aren’t just ordinary innocent victims at all, but insane magic users that Sircea has collected. The box not just holds them, but binds their powers, thus, anyone who attempts to set them free… I mean, if you need a bunch of sacrificial humans, and the research that has led you to this ritual involved collecting and manipulating very dangerous magical lunatics that you now need to dispose of, seems like a great two birds set up to me. Plus a nasty surprise for any would be heroes looking to save the day.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      An interesting theory, but harder to embrace when looking at the final panel on this page… IDK?

      http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch3-page-65/

      • Kate G

        What if their powers haven’t manifested or just haven’t had the right push? Or weird things have happened, they just don’t know why?

        So, maybe not dangerous or cray cray, but powerful given the right….push.

      • Tyler Griffin

        Hmmm… you have a point. Although nothing in that image rules my proposal out, per say. It does seem to make it an odd fit though.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    oopsi’mlate
    Anni does have a point, even with their powers, they are still little kids trying to save the world, or think they are
    i’m still very curious on how this whole plan of PP’s and Anni’s is essentially saving humanity, there’s something BIG still going on here that is unknown to us (or at least to me)
    as old and experienced PP is, i don’t see her turning heel without a huge good reason for it, everything seems more that she’s doing this for her own gain in the end
    also PP isn’t having any of your bull, Anni

  • SchalaRenee

    I think Anni knows something PP doesn’t. Sure, the OTHERS may not have any powers, but…Kyle is the son of a King of Hell. I’m sure his half-demon side isn’t affected by the technology. To a Prince of Hell, technology is probably seen as weak and pointless. Also, I could see Laampros getting pissed if Anni killed his son. PP may not know that Kyle is the son of Laampros and Anni doesn’t want to tell her. XD

    • Klaus

      Kyle has twice been subjected to a dampener. His powers failed both times. Though he did produce a bit of smoke in Hong Kong.

      • Michael

        He wasn’t fires-of-hell-shooting-from-eyes angry in Hong Kong, or while fighting PP. Now, though, I think he might be close to it.

  • Kate G

    I’m veeeeeeeeeeeeery late to the conversation (migraine Tuesday, riding Wednesday and today is massage day. Finally feeling a little human) but has anyone noticed the fire path Kyle (or did Tsunami make it with his flood? No, I think Kyle did it) made is moon shaped and now has Stonehenge rocks all around it? The thing protecting Duncan is in the middle of the moon, the original platform is at the bottom of the top portion and all of the YP’ers are positioned in a vertical row directly across from the platform, original sacrifices on the left, circle of bones and shit on the bottom of the bottom of the moon. It looks like an abbreviated summoning circle.

    ME THINKS THEY FOUND ANOTHER WAY TO GET LAAMPROS!

    I love how I mentioned the vulnerability of these poses are a few pages back and then Duncan says in this page, “And, as I have been recently been made aware, being suspended in the air is quite…compromising.” (I see what you did there, Alex. Nice one.) It also refers to the fact Mitch wasn’t on his toes and stayed in one spot too long and got hit in the backside.

    • SofiaT

      A massage sounds heavenly! I’ve had a headache since yesterday and an injured foot (if it wasn’t for the foot, I’d go for a massage).

    /looks to the 2nd panel
    /looks to spooks
    /looks to the annihilator
    could you keep it in your sparkly silver pants for five minutes you are meant to be trying to summon hell incarnate not tap an underage ass

  • SofiaT

    Kissing jokes aside, that second panel gives me the vibe that Duncan grudgingly admires Spooky.

    He’s also annoyed; whether at Spooky for besting him (for a time), at himself for allowing to be bested or at himself for grudgingly admiring a kid for besting him (complicated feelings are complicated), I cannot tell. Possibly all of the above.

    Also, admiration or not, Duncan’s ego is big enough to demand satisfaction; so I wouldn’t be surprised if, besides an excuse for not killing them, the YP’s current predicament is Anni’s way of giving Spooks a taste of his own medicine and reassuring his ego that he’s still the man.

    You’d think that pettiness would be beyond a man of his years but nope, our Anni takes great pride in his strength and fighting abilities* and woe to him who brings him down a notch.

    [*there’s a traumatic childhood story there and I really want to know what it is.]

    • syllibub

      Great insight about Duncan’s pride. He’s pretty rational and level-headed in general, but I agree that he’s likely got some deeeep issues concerning the concept of strength, thanks to his idealization of comic book heroes and being victimized by bullies in his youth. That likely ties into his desire, sometimes better disguised than others, to be the good guy and save the world in the end, even if his methods are…unconventional.

      Right now he might be using his idea of strength to justify his harsh actions — as in, it takes strength of will and character to do what he’s doing now, since not everyone would have the stomach to cause a certain amount of harm (human sacrifice, emotional manipulation) in the pursuit of a greater good (protecting the world from the demon threat). I think when he talks about how their goal is to save humanity, he’s not just saying it for Kyle’s benefit — it’s what he wants to believe, too.

      It makes Sircea’s mockery last chapter seem more pointed — she’s not just criticizing him for having an inconvenient conscience, she’s stabbing right at his perception of himself as a strong person. Her implication is that if he were really strong, he wouldn’t hesitate, and that if he chooses the path of a straightforward “hero,” he won’t just meet a grisly death thanks to his contract with Laampros, he’ll be going out like a weakling. That might have contributed to his change of attitude, assuming he doesn’t have some other motive.

      • SofiaT

        That is a very good point.
        It also ties with my comment below about how “flawless” Sircea is -it’s not about her immortality or lack thereof, it’s about her single-minded focus and absence of anything or anyone that could disrurb said focus and make her stray from her plan. Nothing will make Sircea stray from her plan.

        Duncan, on the other hand has distractions, weaknesses that have become blantantly obvious, like his ultimate (in his own, special way) care for humanity and his soft spot for Kyle.

        In their definition of weakness and strengh, Sircea is the rock to Duncan’s moving sand.
        Sircea is unpredictable because we don’t know what her end game is and Duncan is unpredictable because we don’t know how his distractions will influence his future actions -or inactions.

        • davefragments

          I more think of Sircea’s “flawlessness” as her face and body in the full length mirror.

        • syllibub

          I think the rock/shifting sand metaphor is terrific, and ties in well to the conversation below regarding the fandom’s perceptions of and reactions to Duncan versus Sircea. Because Sircea’s morality seems like such a fixed point, it really isn’t difficult to imagine her as the Big Bad of the story if she doesn’t get her way here. Duncan shows much more promise in terms of being able to come back around to the heroes’ side.

          • SofiaT

            Oh, syllibub, I’ve missed you so.

        • Adam Black

          Nah you called him right in the beginning.
          Hes the scorpion.
          Hes the principled opposition.
          Hes principled to oppose and to betray. But his self-image is the inverse, that he opposes for his principals ( as well as selfishness ) .

          Sicrea doesn’t fully trust him because of his self-image.
          But this is a mistake.
          She shouldnt trust him because hes going to betray her as part of his nature.

          I also see this as test between them.
          Hes daring her to oppose him to give him a reason to betray her.

          He wants to be the benevolent tyrants, New Gods that save Earth . Gods take necessary sacrifices. Its their prerogative. Thats what Sicea pitched to him. hes calling her out on this.

        • Adam Black

          OH and welcome back

  • Michael

    I don’t know which I like more, flirting/teasing Spooky with the crooked grin, or the gentle innocence of sleeping Spooky.

    Or kissing Spooky with his eyes closed and head tilted to the side while Kyle caresses his chest.

    Funny thing is, all of them equally make me think of a bed.

  • D. G.

    I don’t really see a kiss coming. I think Sircea would have a fit.

    • Hello!

      • davefragments

        I’m getting the edges of that snow. SO rather than watching it on a web cam somewhere, I’m doing the very unheard of non-internet thing of looking out a window and not watching on my computer.

        • jreed3842

          How hard is it hitting you? I’m nervous for everyone who got hit by it. Luckily it didn’t make it out to us!

          • davefragments

            3 to 6 inches. I live south of Pittsburgh PA (think near to Washington PA, Houston PA, and Canonsburg PA. and just those 25 miles (or so) is the difference between 1-3 and 3-6 inches. Friends of mine will come out Sunday and use the snowblower.

          • jreed3842

            This area is protect from the southern storms by the Appalachians. A storm can get over the Allegheny mountain chain but it loses lots of strength as it rises.

          • We had about 3 inches a day or two ago, it was raining ice early this morning for a bit, and now I think it is snowing again…

          • davefragments

            I had a haircut on Wednesday at 4:!5 and went to the supermarket right after (Stocked up on food) and there was a 1/2 inch that made me drive 25mph to get home. Slick as (to borrow a phrase) slick as cat shit on a linoleum floor) …

        • Wow. You’re a rebel!

        • Michael

          sn– snow? We got some rain once. Is it like that?

          • davefragments

            No, it’s white and cold.
            Once, several years ago, I looked out of my garage at 2 feet of snow on the ground. It was impressive.

          • Michael

            White and cold? Like freezer ice?

            One time I saw the creek near our house with water in it. No joke, it was actually moving, too! The water, not the creek.

          • davefragments

            Oh no, that forms over rivers from bank to bank and when it breaks up in the spring cause all sorts of bad things.

          • Michael

            riv-er? Is that what you call the road between bank buildings?

          • davefragments

            We have three of them and lots of smaller fivers and streams around here. Western PA is quite hilly and tree covered and has no beaches but three rivers. It is the beginning of the great Ohio River that flows down to the Mississippi.

          • davefragments

            The creek nearest my house flooded and froze one year. It’s a piddling little thing barely a foot deep at the most. When they plowed the roads — chunks of ice big as cars and 6 to 8 inches thick were thrown aside like giant ice cubes. I never imagined that creek was even that deep and it was a foot below the road’s edge and 10 feet away.
            added: I will never drive through standing water

          • Adam Black

            yeah that ( driving through standing water ) is a huge mistake.

    Anybody know how to fix a leaking vacuum storage bag? It keeps reinflating, and duct tape isn’t working. :/

    On the upside of today, my room is cleaner than it’s been in months.

    • davefragments

      Maybe Gorilla glue? Pool toy patches? Bike inner tube patches? epoxy with a patch? I’m guessing

    • Adam Black

      try thick clear plastic package tape
      or change the bag

    • Connor

      Where’s the air getting in from? It makes a difference. (If you’re not sure a way to find out is to spritz the exterior with soapy water and blow air into it, so that you can see the bubbles escaping from where it’s not airtight.)

      • Michael

        I know where the air is coming from; the problem is that the duct tape won’t stick once I apply the vacuum. Because removing the air makes the bag wrinkle and become semirigid, and that opens up gaps in the tape that aren’t there when it’s flat and relaxed.

        I may just have to write it off and buy another one, it was only a cheapie from Kmart anyway.

        • Adam Black

          use clear plastic package tape, but tape it so its 1-1 with the surface of the bag. if you have to go all the way around
