347 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 40

Go, Fluke, go!

So! Fluke is mere feet from spearing the Dampener. And The Big, Bad, Beanstalk Hug was able to slow The Annihilator down, but not stop him. Will Fluke be able to destroy the Dampener before The Annihilator gets his mitts on him?

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

 

  • Hurry hurry hurry!

  • Poor Woody! So mean Duncan. So mean.

  • davefragments

    Stab that damper, stab it good…
    Kill it right in the heart of the dampening whatever it is!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      You make it sound like a “Vampener” … ‘stake it in the heart!’

      – or maybe get it into some direct sunlight.
      – but don’t look directly into its red eye.
      – maybe fluke had garlic pizza before the battle.
      – are Vampeners immortal?

      Heavens! So many questions. 🙂

  • Woody just wants to hug you Anni!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Kill it, Fluke! Spear that dampener!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Hi everybody! Sorry I couldn’t make camping – I’m packing for my 10 year college reunion, which is also why I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to camping for Saturday’s page either. Busy times!

    • davefragments

      It’s that time of year. Have a great reunion.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Thank you!

    • Have fun!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Thank you, AJ!

    • Doki’s nephew’s birthday is Thursday, but she is staying home this year to take care of her grandmother.

      Have fun at the reunion!

      • davefragments

        You mean the little one you call Godzilla?

        • Did I call him that?

          • davefragments

            No, I was being silly and teasing Stickfigurefairytales …

          • I do remember calling him alien when he was little his arms and legs were sooo long compared to his tiny baby body

          • davefragments

            I didn’t remember that. Just teasing
            I read the comment thread wrong and meant teasing you. Blame that on my tired eyes and damn astigmatism.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hope you still have a good time, Doki!

    • Have loads of fun.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Thanks, Danish!

    • bronakopdin

      have a great time there 🙂

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Random bizarre observation made while trying to find something pertinent to comment on: The tentacle monster beanstalk is blocking the view of the people in the murder box(tm). They can only see the random fight scene mayhem, and not Fluke’s pulse pounding endgame.

    • bronakopdin

      awful, even though they all paid the most expensive of prices…

    • Chris Dangerfield

      D’awwww Saxon, don’t you think our sacrifices are stressed enough?

  • This tension! I’m happy there’s only a 3 days wait til next page.

    Duncan, you’re beating Woody, ripping him off! How rude.

  • D. G.

    Flukes luck is still good. I hope it helps him with killing the dampener.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Thank you so much, as alway, Alex, Adam & Vero…

    I think the fact that we get one more phallic page where our Fluke is spearing and thrusting, forcing his manly way forward in order to bring pleasure to all the members of his team.

    Now don’t be say, there will be other comics and other dick jokes, but I really do think we’ve hit a home run (so to speak) with these last few pages.

    Great page guys… now, thank you again, and I’ll be here all week or until the next page day!

    • The possibilities for dick puns have been rising visibly by these last pages. It’s been fun, and I’m sure more will come.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        (Heh… I’ll take that bet!)

  • Toli Bera

    Callin’ it now: Fluke isn’t strong enough to break it, however a good chunk of plant thrown at terminal velocity… might do it.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Not bad? I have no idea myself… but that’s a fun one!

  • I feel mean, but at some point, as soon as Paul has destroyed that dampener, I hope he removes himself from the scene for a little while if he possibly can.

    The string of bad luck that has to follow this at some point, even if he’s had small stages of bad luck during the fight, is going to be daaaangeerous. So either stay away a little or stand VERY close to the bad guys when his bad luck just makes being in his presence an unfortunate thing…

    …which it already is for the bad guys rigjt now, which again is good luck for Paul.

    Oh dear, the bad luck coming directly Paul’s way at some point is scaring me. This good luck/bad luck .. I can see why he’s deemed too risky for most hero teams (making our team all the more brave).

    Kudos to Paul for living with this. Just the though hurts my mind xD

    • timemonkey

      Pretty sure he has to have the bad luck first before he gets the good luck. So when the good luck runs out he goes back to neutral.

      • But to go back to good luck, which he’s running on big time here, bad luck has to recharge it again. What if he’s sort of working ‘overtime’ on good luck here? How much of it is from his/their earlier bvad luck, and how much will result in future bad luck?

        • timemonkey

          The question is how much has the last few days charged him and how fast is he burning it? We assume all this is luck but for all we know he ran out pages ago and this is just neutral luck and everything Spooky was carrying would be useful.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I admire your perspicacity regarding the many possible variants and effects of Paul’s powers, but I must admit that I now have a headache also… and so am reaching for that soothing medication known as Vodka. 😀

  • davefragments

    It would be ironic if the piece of the vine that Duncan ripped off and is throwing at Fluke destroys the Dampener.
    I went back to Chapter 1, page 37 where Kyle shoots a tiny missile at the first dampener and it had a pyramid-shaped force shield around it. Now that’s some really kinky rathe magics to deal with this corners of that shield but this dampener does not have a shield around it.
    Like I said, it would be ironic if Duncan’s own act destroyed the dampener.

    • And now I’m reminded of how dangerous it was to be around the other dampener when it was blown up >.>
      Here’s to hoping that it’s better and safer to just stab it – or throw a tentacle after it.

      Maybe better if Paul just tried finding the off switch!

      • davefragments

        It is definitely going to go boom with all sorts of sparks and lightning and other stuff lying. It does announce its imminent explosion with lots of vigor before going boom.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          In all good Bond films there is a beeping time clock while the huge nuclear bomb counts down the seconds… seems fair. Although, Duncan is way better-looking than Goldfinger.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Well the “on” switch was on Duncan’s arm-band, wasn’t it? So… mebbe not.

        • Went back and found the page. The on/off switch to Duncan’s nulifier is on his bracelet, but on this page it looks like he’s turning the dampener on too http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch3-page-115/
          Of course it’s still best to destroy it, so it can’t be turned on again, but switching it off would give he others their powers back too, if destroying it will give a big boom like the other one did.

          Paul would be a little too close to it for my liking, especially with the chance of bad luck.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Under normal circumstances it would be ironic. Considering Fluke’s powers it would be Tuesday.
      (And I think that considering Annihilator’s super speed that he’d better off running over and trying to wring Fluke’s neck or something. But at this point his pride has been buffered enough that I think he’s trying to pull a kewl trick shot.)

      • davefragments

        Unfortunately Kewl trick shots at Fluke oft go awry…
        What is it Douglas Adams wrote about the “best laid plans of mice”.

        • Samurai Jack

          Well, if there’s an infinite improbability driving Fluke’s powers, there’s a finite probability Duncan will destroy the dampener himself. Or something. 😉

          • davefragments

            I have enough trouble with Schroedinger and his cats (to which physicists have now added Entanglement– there are now two dead cats, maybe four cats but we don’t know if there are dead or alive) … (pardon, brain pharte)
            I was thinking of Arthur Dent’s conversation with Slartibartfast when he tries to get Slartibartfast to say “the best laid plans of mice and men” and can’t. The reason being that the entire planet was an experiment by the pan-dimensional mice asking the wrong deeply philosophical question.

          • Samurai Jack

            I just want to get the restaurant check paid. 🙂

            Perhaps the dampener will transform into a bowl of petunias.

          • davefragments

            🙂

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Well, as I read the other day, “I just hope the ME in an alternate dimension is doing everything right and is happy…….. and, if so, fuck him.”

            (what I didn’t say it was deep)

          • davefragments

            The problem is that NOW, we not only have one cat “dead or alive” but two cats “dead or alive” but not dead and alive.
            Einstein called Entanglement “Spooky” … That’s food for thought

  • Doki wonders if Alex will let us see Mitch soon and Spooky in the next couple of pages?

    • I know! They’ve been out of view for too long for my comfort, though it’s probably good for them because it means no direct fight/hits on them while healing.

      • bronakopdin

        my thoughts exactly!!

  • Suhndog

    If I ever eat asparagus, and yellow goo squirts out of it, I will then become a complete carnivore!! heh

    I’m wondering if Greeny McStalkMeister is yet another GMO gone horribly WRONG!!

    I hope Fluke can indeed destroy that dampener! Saturday, come quickly!!

    • Stephen Hutchison

      Pretty sure that Woody McStalker is actually a DMO — a Demonically Mutated Organism.

      • Suhndog

        He must be the sordid offspring of a Chupa-cucumbera !

  • Whack him Woody! Whack him with a good vine right upside the head. Maybe it’s knock some sense into the Duncinator. Hahahahaha! I made myself laugh.

    • Sapfo

      Oh you! Woody is having a real good day 😀

      • He will if he whacks the Duncanator. Considering Duncan ripped off one of his arms.

        • Sapfo

          Duncan! NO! Where did I put that newspaper?

          • You left it on the table next to the strawberries.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Wow… safe bet there! 🙂

          • Sapfo

            Thank you! *sitts down and eat strawberries* I wonder if there was something I was suppose to do? 0.o

          • Yes, whack Duncan!!

          • Sapfo

            But it´s to warm and moist! Let Woody deal with him for this page. If it´s cooled down by next page, maybe I can get up…. maybe _-_

          • Let Woody soften him up a bit, is that it?

        • Chris Dangerfield

          That will just cause Woody to grow more… that’s how giant demon not a vines (totally a vine) work. 🙂

          • Well trimming the hedges is good for hedges.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            True fact!

  • Cman65

    First you piss-off Big Ted now you are picking on Mr Woody. Team PP and Annie are not making any friends today

  • Gregory In Seattle

    Just a guess: Fluke will get distracted or attacked, and his lunge at the generator will fail. However, the large branch that Anni just threw will smash it to bits.

  • kamishiro

    GOO FLUKE HONOUUR YOUR NAME :DDDDD

  • Jeldenil

    He just wanted to hug you, Duncan. You meanie.

  • Austin King

    Now that I am caught up (and have been for several months), I am finding the waits between pages unbearable. Also, I want my characters happy.

    • The thing about following a comic from the start, and be able to discus all of it, but having to wait between every page vs. finding a comic that has a lot of pages already, allowing you the joy to binge-read before you hit the current end, and have to wait like everyone else 😉

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I totally agree and I want to put Mr. Woolfson on notice –>>

      There will be NO version of “THE YOUNG PROTECTORS – CIVIL WAR”

      We need our characters happy… at least mostly… at least mostly with each other. I’m just sayin’ 🙂

      (hey gang, raise your hands if your with me on this… snort)

      • purplefoxglove

        *raises hand*

  • Shiny Gwilly

    “AAAAA”
    “AAAAA”
    that’s what’s going on on this page
    really though Anni, how rude of you to deny a hug
    GO FLUKE, DO IT

  • Klaus

    What are those other gadgets, I wonder.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      They pulp, puree, and create a smoother more desirable milkshake… OH wait, so sorry, that’s a late night commercial I was watching. 🙂

  • camelotcrusade

    Whoa, is it just me, or does Duncan have an old man vibe in panel 1?

    Fortunately he shrugs it off later. L(・o・)」

    • bronakopdin

      right? His face there!

    • Maybe Adam found his bad angle 😉

      • Chris Dangerfield

        See THAT is what happens when a character forgets to tip his Adam DeKraker… you get a bad camera angle that shows your wrinkles.

        ORRRR… you forget to tip your Veronica appropriately, and all of a sudden your lighting is off in a shot and suddenly you look ten years older.

        Remember kids… TIP your artists. 😀

  • Stephen Hutchison

    I wonder if the dampener dampener will have a reverse effect once the dampener is turned off… probably too much to hope for, though.

  • TwilightDreamer

    Come on Fluke…come on Fluke…come on Fluke…!!!!
    ……is anyone else bouncing in their seats right now??
    XP

    • Oh yes, bouncing in my seat and forgetting how old I am these days.

      • TwilightDreamer

        XD

  • It’s very bad of me, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the first panel was one of the tentacle scenes in Uncle Ghastly’s Ghastly Comic. 🙂

    Other than that – go, Fluke!

  • Aitsuki

    Boy, thinking about it, Fluke’s got a LOT of bad luck built up… a few days worth, considering all the stuff that happened to his best friend, and all the trouble happening. Maybe that’s why his luck is lasting so long!

  • bronakopdin

    Wow Duncan’s expression in panel 1 is priceless! It actually shows his age a little, for the first time 😀
    I just really hope the dampener will be broken >_<'
    I don't even care anymore whether it will be by Paul's or Duncan's hit! x'D
    But I don't like how Duncan just ripped that vine of Woody :/
    One of the first things we were taught in Kindergarten is that when we play outside we shouldn't rip off leaves or branches from any plants… Because it's hurting them and we should imagine someone tried to pull off a nail or finger of our hands! (Yes very graphic, but it worked!)
    I guess Kindergarten is just too far in the past for Duncan though, eh? x'D

    • T Dibbler

      Oh man, how cool and ironic would it be if Duncan’s actions accidentally broke the dampener?

      • bronakopdin

        it’d be Paul’s continuing luck streak 😀

    • Columbine

      It’s a good idea to teach kids that anyway given how many plants are poisonous. My Mum made sure to scare the crap out of me about Deadly Nightshade so I wouldn’t touch anything I couldn’t identify. Of course this backfired slightly with me learning more than her about plants and then eating random stuff from the hedge.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA!

    • In a weird twist of fate, neither Fluke nor Anni destroy the dampener. The Dampener is destroyed by either Fluffy or Woody.

      • bronakopdin

        also a nice idea 😀

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Well, as Robert Fulghum said, (paraphrase) ‘All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten’

      1. Share everything.
      2. Play fair.
      3. Don’t hit people.
      4. Put thngs back where you found them.
      5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
      6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
      7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.
      8. Wash your hands before you eat.
      9. Flush.
      10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
      11. Live a balanced life – learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
      12. Take a nap every afternoon.
      13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
      14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
      15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup – they all die. So do we.
      16. And then remember the first word you learned – the biggest word of all – LOOK.

      I think Team Silver needs to retake that class!!!

      • bronakopdin

        omg this is so true!

  • Madock345

    Duncan’s got some nice legs going in panel 1.

  • Sterling Ericsson

    Fluke has all the luck, after all.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Does he share?

  • T Dibbler

    Aaaah! So close! Cliffhanger moment!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Aaaaah! I agree. MOAR graphic novels. We need MOAR graphic novels, where pages can simply be turned to provide instant gratification.

      (*alex has been killing himself shipping and I suspect he’s not finding me funny just now… sorry… not sorry*) 😀

      *see these are the moments when you feel the Moderator’s Eye-of-Sauron sweep around to focus on you… auuuuuuuuuugh…*

      • Ha! The moment I read this, the first thunder boom in a storm shower sounded.

        Not sure it’s the moderator eye you should fear 😉

        • Chris Dangerfield

          omg… creator fury… this is NOT good. 🙂

  • Malusz

    Aaaand since we kind of stop kind of on a cliff-hanger, now is the time to wonder what is going to go wrong and prevent the dampener from getting smashed.

  • Columbine

    OK I think: Fluke doesn’t smash the dampner. Annie hits him and knocks him out. Annie’s vine/stick then bounces off Fluke…..and smashes the dampner.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I like the way you think.

  • Sunseahl Silverfall

    I wonder how much time is left for them civvies?

  • Sarah Lebowicz

    Oooooooh…! The suspense is KILLING me! XP

    • David Boccabella

      Suspenders.. Ducky.. Suspenders 🙂

  • Dennis Grace

    O, I hate setups like that. The odds are Fluke will NOT destroy the damping field with the next frame. More likely he’ll be bull’s-eyed by the Platinum P-string. Either that, or like the beanstalk, the damping field generator will have safeguards that will zap him. Goddamnit, this has gone on too damn long. By now don’t we think all the rest of the heroes of the world would have arrived? I mean, where are they commuting from, Jupiter?

    • Jason Wexler

      I mean, where are they commuting from, Jupiter?

      Presumably somewhere further, it was set up in the beginning that most heroes were off in space engaging in some sort of “crossover” event.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        The “Crisis of Colliding Trans-World Identities!”

        OMG, do you have any idea of what the commute time is with crises like that. Whooooeeeeee… it’s crazy, even with a commuter lane.

    • timemonkey

      The other heroes have no idea what’s going on, they’re off dealing with some super crisis. That’s why the YP are dealing with this in the first place, there’s nobody else.

    • Klaus
  • Zeruk

    Second to last panel: When you take on two guys at once…
    And feel DAMN proud about it xD

    Side Note: I love Paul’s face in the last panel. He look’s like he’s having too much fun! ;P

  • Adam Black

  • Earl Patterson

    Mr. Duncan going save the day, he’s going toss …. plant thing at paul

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Honestly that’s not a really practical way to garden……..

  • Jason Moon

    If you look at the dampener’s beacon up top, it looks like Fluke is going to stab a pair of balls while Duncan rips apart long tentacles that are wet and dripping with goo. Is there any part of this that isn’t suggestive?

    • Chris Dangerfield

      SEE? Fluke is so much “luckier” than even WE had imagined!

  • Jeanette Birk

    I just read the entire comic from the start 🙂 Three and a half hours 🙂
    It was so worth it, I really, really hope Kyle will forgive Duncan and they’ll become a couple 🙂
    And he’ll see Duncan truly wants to ‘save’ the world and he’s not bad 🙂

    • Hi Jeanette. Welcome to the comic and comments 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Welcome!!!

    • Welcome Jeanette!

    • Welcome welcome!

    • Welcome. 🙂

    • D. G.

      Welcome.

    • Howdy Jeanette!

      Very glad you found us here! Welcome!

      If you don’t mind me asking, how did you learn about The Young Protectors?

      • Jeanette Birk

        I found it on Tumblr 🙂
        And I am now a fan

        • Tyler Griffin

          Yay for Tumblr!

        • Yay! Thank you for letting me know. Very glad to have you here! 🙂

  • Pikinanou

    Destroy it!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Puhleeeeeeze!

  • Derkins

    how lucky there was a spike laying there. NOW KILL!!! … *ahem*

  • Jeff Baker

    Hmm….Fluke swings at the thingie and is knocked to the side by something Duncan throws at him which busts the thingie?

  • Odd_child_1

    The look on Duncan’s face says he has “seen enough Hentai.”

    • Tyler Griffin

      I think all gay men have “seen enough hentai,” most all of the women too, lmao. At least the ones hat frequent fan fiction and comment sections

  • Mary Klemzak

    Ooooh Duncan looks maaad. Guess it’s warranted if a giant tentacled stalk tries to squeeze the life out of you.

    Nothing like a magic beanstalk to distract the bad guy long enough to break the Thing.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    WHUUUUT?

    Hey, I took a nap……. IKR? Shouldn’t page day be here by now? I need to know what happens with my Flukie and the Dampener!

    Darn….. (*chris shuffles off in disappointment, then yells over his shoulder*) You know I’m just going to repeat this question every day until we get there!

    “ARE WE THERE YET?” 😀

  • Klaus

    Now Woody is going to get really angry.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      puhleeeeze goddess that is so………

    • Tyler Griffin

      Angry Wood can be a whole lot of fun though.

  • AzrielEver

    And then the pole breaks. Cuz luck can only get you so far

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Well if you’re Donald Trump?…………..

      • Klaus

        Have you read Scott Adams’ blog? That is not luck, that is pure skill.

  • secret-alpacas

    I’ve seen enough hentai to see where this is going.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Tell me, tell me, tell me.

      I mean Duncan has not, heretofore, had his orifaces violated by tentacled creatures (I am looking forward to the possibility). So, I can only hope. I think it will help him with his ‘closet’ issues.

      Please keep me posted on all “Duncan-Henntai” issues.”

      Thank you ever so…………

      • secret-alpacas

        Duncan hentai seems to be the only fair and just route after the emotional rollarcoaster he put kyle and the entire fanbase through.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          OMG… you have just become my favorite reader in one post. NICE!

          • secret-alpacas

            Well thanks chris. You’re my favourite reply person. Now just think about how much better it would be if Fluke was more creative with his potions.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Butt aren’t they Spooky’s potions (tossed when he got whacked by Duncan) and Paul is just doing his best in a bad situation?

            Yeah?

          • secret-alpacas

            I thought they were ones he had on his belt/in his pockets like the giant beast thingy.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Nope… Klaus… will sort us out when the time change is right. But all the bottles are Spooky’s.

          • secret-alpacas

            Ahhh. That makes a lot more sense. I guess it was just a Fluke that he happened to drop them all.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Well said!

          • Tyler Griffin

            here! here!

          • Klaus
          • secret-alpacas

            ahh thank you Klaus

          • Chris Dangerfield

            No, Klaus and others will have to confirm, but I think all of the bottles came from Spooky’s trench coat when he was clobbered by Duncan??? No?

          • secret-alpacas

            I’m hopeful they will comform by saturday or at least make the giant plant thing more pervy in its full body choke hold.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Are we there yet?

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Okay… let’s be honest here. How much do these last three pages make you LOVE Spooky even moar… and his trench coat full of wonder-bottles!

    (sillubub is excused from this question due to marital reasons…)

    • I was just thinking that Spooky’s missing all the crazy that is happening. That’s going to make him sad.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I think getting to skip out on the fight in order to spend this time laying on the ground holding Mitch’es hand is the better deal.

  • D. G.

    Damn. Its only Thursday.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Hear here!

      • Stephen Hutchison

        And now it’s only Friday. 🙁

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Are we there yet? (page day)
    (do not say you were not warned…)

    hey… I waited 8 hours before being annoying I deserve a fritter!

    • secret-alpacas

      You can have a half assed poptart and a shrug

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA! You are a ‘giver’, oh yes you are!

        • secret-alpacas

          I have a boyfriend that might say I’m more of a taker >.>

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I guess it depends on what you take??? 😀 (snort)

          • secret-alpacas

            Weeeeeelllll… :’D

          • secret-alpacas

            ohhh, This and That.

  • The tentacle porn references are flying fast and furious just like the piece of tentacle I predict Duncan is about to throw, clobber Fluke(bad luck!) and then crush the dampener(good luck, yay!!!).

    After this, let it forever be said that Duncan’s tentacle was mightier than Fluke’s pole. What? Somebody must keep the squid-pro-quo around here.

  • Jonni

    Duncan, that plant is about to smack you onto the horizon.

  • *Ahem* Cut off one vine and two more shall take its place!!

    OR! Will that broken vine sprout a second Woody?

    • Jonni

      Kinky.

    • I am all for another Woody. ^_^

      • 😀

      • Tyler Griffin

        I’m always glad to see another Woody rising before me.

        • Jonni

          We won’t be able to see the forest for all the Woodies

          • Tyler Griffin

            Mmmmmmmm where is this Forest of Woodies you speak of? 😛

          • Jonni

            Forest of Woodies: Tree-huggers welcome!

          • Jonni

            Directions can be found in lecture hall 3b UU

    (*blearily opens eyes and reaches for coffee*)
    … Are we there yet? …

    • secret-alpacas

      not yet.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Ung… so unfair! (I want instant gratification, why is that so wrong?)

    • Soon, sir!

    • Tyler Griffin

      5 more minutes

  • Chris Dangerfield

    See… now that gets into the complex issue of what each of us define as “gratification.” I’ve had many years to explore male porn-porn and I’m rather over it as a device to excite. I’m also married to a hot latin dude who wears me out (that should be embarrassing, but it’s true).

    Then, I have a huge trunk of sex toys, collected over many years….

    So, when I say ‘instant gratification’ I’m being specific to the ‘the next page’ or ‘the next film’ or the ‘next book in a series’.

    It’s all so silly and complex and changes as we age, but thanks for the suggestion. 😀

    • secret-alpacas

      in that case, Go for the harry potter saga if you want that kind of instant gratification. But be prepared to lose your heart.

  • davefragments

    I wonder if the Mister Beanstalk will be spanking Duncan and the “Not-a-Bear” will still be shooting laser beams at Sircea when the portal opens and Laampros enters?

    But first, that dampener has to die, ignominiously, unceremoniously, and painfully, die. . .

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Keeping in mind that destroying/deactivating/distracting/another-word-that-starts-with-D the dampener *is* only the first step in stopping the villains’ plan, it begs the question of whether a Young Protectors team that is repowered but down two members is able to match up against a Team Silver where one of the members is out of the game due to dodging laser eye blasts. Bottom line: how long will Fluke’s luck last in keeping the Annihilator distracted before Annihilator can use his super speed to bring down the heroes again?

      Of course, I’m still expecting an insanely tight race to thwart the villains’ plans, which then just *barely* fails, and have Laampros turn up. Mainly because Spooky predicted that having Red Hot’s status as a Prince of Hell would probably be a game changer, and that kinda of relies of having demons being around to recognise his status.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Hmm. Gaming has been called off today because one of the co-GMs is coming down sick again and he doesn’t want to pass it on to the rest of the group. Wise, considering the cold, wet weather that the east coast low has brought to NSW and Queensland. Nevertheless, I’m going to have to go out in the cold and wet to go shopping.

    • Tyler Griffin

      Just determined to find ANY excuse to avoid us, eh? 😛

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Oh, phhbbtt. 😛

        • Tyler Griffin

          I see your raspberry, and raise you a thumbnose lol

    • davefragments

      I stay inside when it’s cold and wet.
      It wasn’t cold today — hit about 83F …
      The cicadas are screaming their ugly noise and other bugs are biting.

  • davefragments

    I thought I’d never make it through this day. I seriously don’t need another day like this all the rest of the year.

    • Pietro7

      The I wish for you to have only good days for the rest of the year!

      • davefragments

        Thanks.

    • Boo for bad days!

      • davefragments

        I’m poor again. Last month it was the little bathroom’s plumbing.

        • It’s always the way. It’s always something. It’s like it can’t just be one thing. It’s ten things.

          • davefragments

            It was one teeny tiny ball bearing about an 1/8 inch in diameter. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

          • Bad ball bearing, bad!

          • davefragments

            Did I leave the stove on?

            (guess what I bought so I can see it every time my dirty little heart wants mayhem and murder and 84 “F” bombs?)

          • Woot! Good Deadpool!

    • Feel you, Dave… Today has only been a bunch of bad news piling up! And I had to broadcast those news through the family which made them at least ten times worse‼

      Here’s to better times.

      • davefragments

        I’m keeping my news a secret from anyone else. It will be delivered in 3/4 weeks.

  • Jack Mason

    Do do da do~ First time camping, kinda cozy. Mm, nice fire and some marshmellows. The sky is beautiful. WiFi connection? A bit poor, I hate camping. Take me home to my good WiFi!!

    • Pietro7

      Hang on stay a while – the connection gets better as more of us gather. Have some chocolate cream puffs or s’mores?

  • Tyler Griffin

    I wonder if Laampros is into bears…. or enjoys being whipped..

  • Well, that was a nice try: as the bad news of the day were keeping me awake, I thought I’d camp with you guys like I used to, which often cheered me up too, but the heart just isn’t there. So I’ll just read one of those rectangular objects made of paper with words printed on them…

    Have a nice afternoon, evening, night, morning camping and the new page! ♥

    • *hugs b3nc0*

    • I’m sorry, b3nco. For what ever the news is, and that camping couldn’t help a little *hugs*

  • Morning. A hot apartment has been keeping me awake so haven’t slept yet *humpf*

    Gppd thing a æage is coming soon.

    • davefragments

      I thought you lived in the land of perpetual snow where ice fairies and cute little snow men danced nightly in your yard?

      • That’s during winter time 😉

        Right now Denmark is having summer-day temps (over 77F/25C), which is pretty good by our standard, and have had days is a row, and more to come. A socalled ‘hot-wave’ which is a step below heatwave. Sometimes the humidity is through the roof. A mix of being a country surrounded by water, and here and there an occationally very local and random hitting thunder shower.

        • davefragments

          Around here, a heatwave is in the 90F range.

          • Doki is uncomfortable at anything over 74F, Doki would be melting at 90F.

          • davefragments

            I agree.

    • Summer is such a bummer. It’ll get bad for us around July and August with the humidity.

      • Humidity is the worst. I’ll take a dry heat over thet every day. On previous page day it had rained in the evening/night. Air was so moist in the morning heat that it almost hurt to breathe.

        • It’s easier to deal with a dry heat, but it’s still hot and I’d rather not be out in either. 🙂

    • Morning Danish, I also cannot sleep if I am too hot. 🙁

      • Adam Black

        Your Bf must be a lucky guy.

        • Alas, Doki is single. T-T

          • Adam Black

            There is your personal ad:
            “Too Hot & Up All night long”

          • Sanbai

            You should work in advertising sir!

    • Sanbai

      In the American South, we “solve” this problem by having too many fans. If you have a desk or box fan pointed right at you in the evening, both the air and the white noise hum should help you drift off.. When my AC breaks, I sometimes use three!

      • Doki is also in the South. Doki doesn’t function with a broken AC. Doki is sensitive to the heat. Doki isn’t pleasant to be around without AC.

  • I’m trying to find an album I want, but it’s an import so really expensive. And it doesn’t seem to be on iTunes or Amazon (digitally). All despite there being several original songs on Youtube. At least there’s that.

    • davefragments

      What album?

      • This one. He helped host this years Eurovision and won last years.

        amazon.com/Perfectly-Damaged-ZELMERLOW-MANS/dp/B00XJLX9I2/

        • davefragments

          Jeepers, my Pittsburgh Symphony Recordings are cheaper than that.

          • Well it’s an import. I want to yell and stamp my feet how it’s not fair but then I start wondering what do other countries pay for cd’s from the US?

          • davefragments

            Maybe take the chance on it used?

          • Looking around, it’s maybe supposed to maybe drop on iTunes in a couple of days. If it doesn’t, yeah, I may check on the used. Or hope some kind soul takes pity on me. HA!
