So! We’re getting to see a little bit of Amanda’s active fantasy life. Good thing no one else on the teams can read minds! (Or can they?) Which of these images is your favorite? Please let me know in the comments! I wonder what secret will we learn next?

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

  • Hoooly crap! I might just have peed myself in excitement o_o

    Alex, your fanservice is the best!

    • I’m glad to hear it. 😀

      • It’s a sexy SHOWER SCENE! I love you right now <3

        … uhm.. I mean, have I mentioned how much I have a kink for sexy wet men? I think it might have come up a time or two.. or twenty *goes back to look at panel 2 for a long time*

        • Uh huh, panel 2. Yup.

          • Sapfo

            Julie knows what to do with a pen, that is for sure.

          • Michael

            There’s something about almost nudity that is so much more exciting for me than actual nudity. The way the picture is cut off just at the strategic moment by the gutter so brilliant. Enough to imagine the rest, but not too much.

          • Sapfo

            I agree. Our Fantasie can sometimes surpass anything that is on display. This is a good job of showing just enought 😀

          • For me it varies. I like both, but depending on how it’s done.. if that makes sense. It’s like, if it’s explicit it has to be well done, or it could actually have been better if comic was made so it was up to the imagination to put in those ‘extra bits’ *lol*

  • They DO all shower at the same time, at least in Amanda’s mind. She wasn’t kidding about it being a big fantasy dream xD

  • stickfigurefairytales

    That shower scene feels vaguely familiar… (Or maybe that is just me being conceited lol)

    • You did write a mini-fanfic about it, if I recall.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I believe mine involved Paul rather than Gordon, but since he’s underage he couldn’t have appeared here. (Unless it was sexy future Paul! Oh man, now I’m imagining him a bit taller and broader, with maybe a nicely trimmed goatee… Mmm…)

        • Yummy!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I now ship me and Future Paul.

    • That was a GREAT mini story you did in the comments back then. Now I want to find the comments again. Any idea what page you posted those on?

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Aww, thanks! I’m not sure, but I feel like somebody might’ve saved it on tumblr or something. Let me go look.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Ah, here we go! Doki kindly made it into a livejournal post:

        It’s Mitch/Spooky/Paul, so that would have been a double disqualification for characters who can be show naked here.

        If anybody does remember what page that was on, though, I’d love to know!

        • Awesome. Thank you for finding it again 🙂

          • stickfigurefairytales


        • I’m almost sure it was one of the first pages of chapter 3.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I’ll go look.

          • It was around that time, I believe, either some pages before of after the start of chapter 3. I lean towards after.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Hmm, I haven’t had any luck so far finding the actual page.

          • I have ^_^
            Now that I’ve had some sleep I did something smart: I actually went to look at Doki’s post with your story.
            There I looked for a tiny detail, called ‘date’ (as is day it was posted) which made it SO much easier. I just had to go back and find the TYP page that was posted shortly before that, and voila!

            The page is Chapter 3, page 22 – though there was also a couple mentions of your story on page 23 + Chris who made a mini-post continuing it (trying to distract me from V-hunting).

  • Connor

    As always, Mitch’s facial expression is just the best.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I love him raising his hand when he is the only one in the class.

      • And that adorable blush. So cute!

      • Michael

        * that we can see. Kyle might be sitting next to him, out of the camera frame.

  • davefragments

    That was unexpected. The things I WANT to say are too explicit. Let’s just leave it at that.

  • Nate

    Can I sign up for that class? Mitch may need a study partner….

    • stickfigurefairytales

      “Alright, now break into groups and try these exercises.”

    • Nate

      As for my favorite scene… tough one. The shower scene is the hottest, but Tsu doesn’t really do it for me… and I do find Mitch’s innocence appealing.

      Decisions, decisions.

  • Sapfo

    Woke up in just the right moment 😀

    • Good Morning, Ms. Strawberry.

      • Sapfo

        Good evening Admiral!
        Hope things been well while we been away. Missed you guys

        • Everything is ship shape. 😀

          You were missed!! Glad you had lots of fun.

          • Sapfo

            Dont tell anyone, but @Gryphongirl2:disqus is so sweet and funny. Could not had hope for a better friend.

          • Awww! You are sweet too, Little Strawberry!

          • Sapfo

            But very true

          • I knew it!!

  • Sapfo

    I think this need to become fanfiction O___O Yes good good fanfiction

  • Well, this is steamy!

  • Michael




    I’m blushing as much as Kyle right now.

  • Will this be the only time we ever see Tsunami smiling?? O.O

    • Klaus

      Unless you saw his origin card.

  • James Wade

    My goodness, I’m having the vapors!

  • This is like, the BEST page ever!

    • Sapfo

      I agree! *nods head*
      We came home at the right time 😀

      • XD And we have such impeccable timing, Little Strawberry!

        • Sapfo

          Indeed great Gryphon!

  • Michael


    It’s the small details like this that make this comic so good.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Wait, so Amanda’s imagining slightly-in-the-future!Kyle in the shower scene, right? Since Truth or Dare is set before the comic’s main storyline, which means that Kyle would still have been seventeen.

    • Shhhhh! We do not point out that little detail for Alex. Technicality, it’s ALL just as it should be here 😉

      (I thought it too, but kept quiet. You ruined it)

      • stickfigurefairytales

        (I’m sorry!!)

  • Jen Roberts

    Hot DAMN, Amanda.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      “Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.”

  • syllibub

    I think Amanda must have commissioned some of that fanart.

    • LOL!

    • Terri Sutton

      Or telepathically inspired them. Or drawn some. Or perhaps even wrote that porn comic they found.

      • davefragments

        ding, ding, ding!

      • Jen Roberts

        Yeah, I really want to know if Amanda writes fanfiction now. And where we can read it…

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Oh man, wouldn’t it be both hilarious and a little mortifying if Amanda’s control slipped a bit at times due to the, er, intensity of her imagination, and she inadvertently broadcast her fantasy to some random passerby?

        • I’d like her to broadcast it to me as a random passerby XD

          • Terri Sutton

            I think she has done that already to me.

        • Connor

          I wonder if they would realize it came from an outside source, or just think it was their own imagination. Forget random passerbys, I want to see Fluke’s face while getting Amanda-fantasy spillover.

          • Jen Roberts

            Gordon’s face. GORDON’S.

          • Terri Sutton

            No Tsunami, Fluke would probably have that; “well that was weird, no eating pizza after midnight for me”. But Tsu is such a sourpuss.

        • Michael

          *passer-by passing by*
          *listening to classic rock on ipod*

          “When I think about Tsu, I touch mysel– wait, what?”

          • Michael

            *different passer-by*

            *bopping along to Lady gaga*

            “I want you Red Hot, I want you Spoo-ky
            I want you Flyboy, and Tsu-na-mi
            I want your love
            Love love love
            I want your love”

  • Amanda ships it! Er, them. All of them! Yayyy!

    • Michael

      I notice they all involve Spooky in some way.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Well, she did say at the beginning that she was picturing them with Spooky.

        • davefragments

          Spooky is an instigator.

      • Nirgal

        Just in case last page didn’t make it clear, EVERYBODY wants to have sex with Spooky.

  • Terri Sutton

    The page goes up and my internet goes down. I suspect foul magic at work.

    • Jen Roberts

      The page was too hot for the internet to handle. Panel 2 ALONE would make it overheat.

  • Connor

    The last panel is good, but it just doesn’t have the same amount of fun as the others.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I love how Spooky and Paul have the actual romance novel trope bearskin rug in front of their roaring fire.

  • Precious

    I can’t stop blushing > w < And Tsunami is…SMILING?! *Shocked face* OMGOMG!

    • Jen Roberts

      That’s how we know it’s a fantasy.

      • stickfigurefairytales


  • Chris Dangerfield

    Oh brava/o Alex and Julie. I definitely have to sleep (and dream) a bit on this page, before writing anything… except Thank you both!

    • Sapfo

      Good night my dear Chris. Dream sweet dreams of hot showers, and warm fires.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Thank you and welcome home to you and Gryph! Glad to have you both back!

        • Sapfo

          It feels good to be back!

        • And this is a wonderful welcome home present! Thanks to Alex and Julie.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Sleep well, Chris!

    • G’nite, Mr. Chris!

  • Pfff.. twist of this page would be if Amanda accidently managed to give a few mind flashes of her thoughts right now. Not sure about the team, but I’d volunteer to share her mind at any time she has her fantasies!

    • Jen Roberts

      Hell, I’d pay her to send some of these thoughts my way. I wonder if she’d accept Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies as payment?

    • Michael

      If she were more mischevous, she’d be sending a few images Gordon’s way just to see his reaction.

    • Jeldenil

      I feel like we shared one mind just now, Danish. You and I. *wiggles eyebrows*

  • I have to say I do love the shower scene the best. I mean wet men! Indeed so very steamy. (in more ways than one)

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Yeah, I think I’m gonna have to go with that one too, although I love them all.

      • All good, but wet men!!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Plus being all cradled and surrounded by your lovers…

    • Sapfo

      OH and they are clean also 😀

      • Clean is good. 🙂 But I’m sure they could be cleaner.

      • Klaus

        Right. This is no dirty picture.

  • Michael

    I hope Amanda is imagining a faux-bear rug…

    • Terri Sutton

      I hope it’s eco-fur imitation bear rug.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Hmm, is imaginary fur still murder?

      • Terri Sutton

        If it is fur from a real bear I imagine that in Amanda’s fantasies it was from a fantasy of Spooky wrestling with the bear while dressed like a caveman.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Maybe it was a demon bear.

      • Michael

        It is if imaginary consent is still necessary.

  • jreed3842

    Oh…. *clears throat and fans self* Well… then. That’s a fun page.
    I’m just gonna replace Tsunami with myself.

    And Mitch with myself.
    And Fluke with myself.

    … Yep.

  • Cydney Sabin

    Currently looking up ways to turn this page into a mural. Y’know… for art reasons…

    • Klaus

      How about a stained glass window?

      • …..but what if someone broke it? It would be a horrendous tragedy!

      • Cydney Sabin


  • Toli Bera

    Well, there’s the ‘if you all showered together’ scene. I’m pacified. XD

  • YangYueLan

    ’cause a dead (maybe fake) bear under your butt is romantic. Or is it bare?

    Huh, me+alcohol=even more sarcasm. Who’d’ave thunk?

    • Connor

      Romance would be boring without murdering things and amputating plant genitals.

      • davefragments

        I never thought of a dozen roses as a dozen amputated plant genitals. Somehow that removes all the romance of the roses.

        • Connor

          There’s nothing I’ve yet found that can’t be ruined by putting it in the proper perspective.

          • davefragments

            Aw. Gee. And I’m a romantic beneath all this rather gruff looking exterior.

      • YangYueLan

        …amputating….ooooooh! Flowers! Heh, good one!

  • davefragments

    Reading the first interlude where the guys find internet porn of themselves — Pages 7 and 8 — take an entirely different meaning than when I read it originally.

    Page 1 – to start at the beginning:
    Page 7:
    Page 8:

    • I still wonder if Spooky will forget this 100% like the others, or if he’s somewhat immune and remembers some things.

      • davefragments

        So do I. So do I.

  • I go take a shower and come back this this…. (I might need another one…)

    Amanda is one the same wave length as the rest of us (thank you….) ;____; *happy tears*

    • You and me both. Went for my morning shower, came back to the computer to read my LiveJournal feed over breakfast, and *this* popped up on my screen (ooh er, missus). Bad timing on my part.

  • *lol* I finally got around to read Alex’ page comment, and his ‘let me know which image is the favorite’. I think I made that VERY clear in my comment about the shower scene at the bottom of the comments, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love the other two fantasy scenarios a LOT as well.

    In each their way Amanda’s fantasy scenarios have something unique, hot and/or adorable about them. Julie has done a great job here. Had she not, I don’t even think I’d have noticed it. Panel 2 and the way Spooky is licking Kyle’s finger takes away most of any other line of thoughts I might have had.

    Dat tongue! o_o

    • jreed3842

      My favorite is definitely the shower scene too (Hot wet naked men will win for me every time!)
      But I love each of these fantasies. The Spooky being a teacher is totally cute, and I’m very taken by Paul’s expression in the last panel, very romantic indeed.

      As Spooky’s tongue does it for you….. Kyle’s butt is what wins me over. How does that one song go? … “I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring.” 😛

    • Saxon_Brenton

      I will be enormously mischeivous and say ‘panel 1’.
      Just as Spooky paused dramatically and milked the attention before asking his question to Amanda, so Amanda has her audience in the palm of her hand. Don’t be fooled by the way she’s casting her eyes towards the ceiling and raising a finger to her chin as if she’s being thoughtful and extemporising. She knows exactly what she’s doing.

  • Megan Staples


  • Amanda, please be my best friend. I’d do the exact same thing.

  • Fabulous Alien

    Too sexy / cute for words. I need a bigger dictionary or thesaurus before I can write something more articulate…

  • Connor

    I just realized, “Or as a PATIENT teacher”—-
    Does that mean Mitch is a bad kisser?

    • Michael

      Given his overall naiveté, I would put it down to blushing inexperience and timid coyness. I’m sure given a proper teacher he’ll be an eager student and a fast learner.

    • Archidel

      Or perhaps he just pretends to be a bad kisser and slow learner so he can get more ‘lessons’. With Spooky being the teacher, I would.

  • Madock345

    Well… Holy shit. I’m not even going to try to describe how I feel about this page, it’s just too… Goddamn. The shower scene *image* is definitely my favorite, but the teacher scenario is better fantasy material I think. That one could have been the best if Alex wasn’t so goddamn careful with Mitch’s age. (I mean, respecting the age of a fictional character is one thing, but a doubly-fictitious version? Couldn’t Amanda muster the imagination to set it somewhere with a low age of consent, or an older Flyboy?)

    Eh, I know he has good reasons, I’m just bitching, don’t mind me XD

    • Connor

      For me it’s kind of the reverse. I like the teacher scenario image a lot better, but the shower scene has more fantasy potential.

  • Me: *new thought occur*
    These scenarios is based on Amanda thinking about Spooky in scenes where it’s all her imagination, and this is damn hot.
    Now I think of the fantasy scenarios she might have about herself and Spooky, and in this case she can implement reality into it – and it could be more scenarios *I* could relate better to…

    oh dear gawd.. I don’t think my brain can go there right now without exploding.

  • Wyrmidon

    I really like the way Amanda’s mind works. A lot.

    And I need a COLD shower now. Excuse me.

  • Sadly I must leave this page for now. I have things to do later and I must try for some sleep before then. I will without a doubt be bacl later to stare at this page.

    Be it Amanda being awesome, Spooky’s tongue, Kyle’s butt, Tsu-Tsu actually smiling, Mitch’s cute blush while being an eager student, Paul’s dreamy look or the treasure trails. I’ll be back to study every detail and more.

    G’night.. or morning, what it technically is here. Thank you for another awesome page.

    • Madock345


    • stickfigurefairytales

      Goodnight Danish!

  • Yukiness

    Wow, Amanda can read minds. Just look at all of our head cannons on display!

  • LL

    I spent…a lot of time looking at this page…
    I mean, look at the details on those SHOWER TILES! :O

    • Klaus

      And in the fire.

  • kamishiro

    Holy craaap ! I wasn’t expecting that xD
    Eye candy yaaaaay :DDD I love all the scenarios, but i guess i liked the romantic one the most. Because it was romantic xDDDD But the shower scene, omggg !!

    Hope i’m not reading too much and i may be a bit biased cause i ship Amanda and Spooky, but i think it’s rather interesting that all her fantasy includes him, specifically.
    As a fujoshi myself i have analysed over the years why i used find the boyxboy comics soo more appealing. ( I stil do, but i always liked a story with real well developed characters instead of plot that only contained the smexyness )
    One is because i came from a more conservative culture where the interest of a woman in sex is still regarded rather negatively.
    Amanda phrase ” in situations that wouldn’t really happen … ” triggered me, because i can relate to that. In a sense i still feel guilty having interest in sex and a way to canalise my interest is focusing in fictional characters where i’m a observer.
    My guess is, Amanda doesn’t feel like inputting herself in the fantasies with Spooky. I can only wonder what’s the cause. The answer is probably in their past.
    Or maybe i’m totally wrong and she just likes to picture them together, or maybe she thinks it’s cute/hot.
    But i thought my little analysis and personal experience could add a little more on the discussion of this page 🙂

    Agree? Disagree? Wanna throw a rock on me? Please comments xD

    PS. This page is superb. Julie’s art is lovely and light. and Alex really caught us off guard with all this wonderful scenarios xD
    I love how Mitch’s case was a more innocent take “How to kiss ” 😛

    • Jeldenil

      I understand the part of fantasies that are unlikely to happen IRL being more appealing then others. As a woman myself, I know how unlikely it is that one day I would be allowed to watch m/m intimacy and even be included in it at some point. While men seem far more likely to have that the other way around. So yeah, I see it as one of the main reasons to my own preference for yaoi/bl and the likes. Also, this kind of works include romance and story, something I personally prefer over pure smut.

    • Columbine

      Taste is a hard thing to rationalise. I don’t tend to picture myself in my fantasies, but I think that’s more because I don’t have a very strong self-image and my preferences are such that I’m more interested in roles than gender/sex.

      So my imaginings contain f/f, f/m and m/m, and the person in my ‘role’….well I guess they’re supposed to be me, but they usually don’t look much like me. They change gender and skin colour quite a bit, the only real consistency is role and build, I’m short and slender, so are they.

      For me part of the point of fantasy is it’s improbable/’wouldn’t really happen’. I am unlikely to meet the actress who plays Thea Queen, if I did I doubt she’d be interested and anyway I’m in a committed relationship and can’t afford a pair of stocks. Still it’s a fun image. Similarly I know the actress who played Servelan in Blake’s 7 no longer looks like that 30-something years on but *damn* she had the Evil Empress vibe *down*. Fantasy is….well supposed to be fantasy.

    • I rarely appear in my own fantasies (sexual or otherwise).

    • kamishiro

      Thanks for the thoughts guys ! It’s really interesting to see different and news perspectives 🙂
      It makes you really see the picture in a bigger angle !

    • Sarah314159

      I took it as partly because she thinks it’s hot for guys to get it on with each other… partly that she isn’t comfortable imagining herself bangin’ all the guys she works with (because they’re too young and it’s creepy to think of, and/or because thinking about them that way could affect her relationship with them in ways she doesn’t want), but she does have an awareness of them as sexy guys, so she channels that into fantasies that don’t involve her.

      I personally have had fantasies based on both of those things. I do think guys getting it on with each other is hot, so I’ve had guy/guy fantasies about men I’ve dated or lusted after. And there’ve been people I’ve been close to and had sexual awareness of, but not been comfortable fantasizing about, usually because of an age difference or because I don’t want to bring sexual tension into a professional relationship, so I’ve directed that awareness into a few fantasies about those people bangin’ *other* people rather than me.

  • just to be a nitpicker about Alex’ first line: as this plays some weeks before main story line, Kyle is 17. I never understood that kind of panic, though. To be allowed to do but not to be seen while is rather bizarre to me – something along the lines of German §175 between the 70ties and early 90ties where a young gay couple was allowed to have sex while both were under 18 and then were illegal between the 18th birthdays of both. strange times….

    that said I must admit a shower scene with 3 guys is definitely better than one with 2. now where did I leave those aging pills for Fluke…

  • LL

    Amanda of the past: “I didn’t say anything about you guys showering together.”
    Lies, Amanda. Lies.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Ahahahahahahahah… perfect!

    • Sarah314159

      Well, yes, she didn’t *say* it…. 😀

    • Toli Bera

      Technically, since this story happened before the story, and the other clip happened during. she’s not lying now. she lies in the future.

  • OMG. Seriously? She imagines Spooky teaching Mitch how to kiss? …..Isn’t it a bit dangerous to have Spooky teach that skill? I mean not that I think Mitch would abuse it, but… Just imagining Mitch with that amount of skill…. *pooof*

    That panel is just too adorable for words. I LOVE IT.

    ……So Amanda ships Spooky with Fluke not Kyle….hmmmmm

    • Well I think she was trying to think of things not “sexual” per say for Mitch and Fluke to do with Spooky, things that were “safe”. It’s kissing lessons for young Mitch (which he probably thinks about a lot) and a romantic moment with Fluke (which is probably safest with Fluke’s powers–although having Fluke near a fire when things are going his way could start things not going his way, but I’ll stop typing now so as not to bring on Fluke’s bad luck).

      • Safe or not…..the implications of Spooky teaching Mitch how to kiss….Mitch is going to make some men very happy one day with that skill

        • Oh indeed indeed! That right there is some pretty hot stuff.

          • And from Mitch’s line of sight he seems to already be thinking about some other applications of the skill….

          • O.O

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Don’t worry about little Mitch… I think Alex will have Julie cover Spooky’s privates with a token bear rug in the final. LOL.

        • Jason Equality King

          Yup. Anyone want to join me for a quick cruise round the bay in the good ship RedFlyer?

          • Michael

            I thought it was called HotBoy.

          • Jason Equality King

            Oops you’re right. This ship has registered under so many different flags, I get mixed up which name we’re using at the moment. 😉

          • Well as Captain of the Mitch/Kyle flag ship, I can inform you that there has been no consensus on a name as yet. Firefly was a very strong contender, but we didn’t want it to cause any fandom wars over the name. There has yet to be a suggestion to surpass that one though.

      • Connor

        I had never considered how Paul’s flukiness would affect his normal life. Probably makes schoolwork a lot easier. (“I only had time to study half my notes last night. Fortunately, the half I did study included everything on the test.”)

        • If things were going for him that day that is. 🙂

      • Jeldenil

        So assuming Fluke is under age, I assume they are sipping something other then wine, too?

        • Um…maybe soda…in fancy glasses!

          • timemonkey

            I love fancy soda!

          • Hear hear!!

            Considering I have yet to meet a glass of wine I can drink, this would be what I would put in my glass!

    • Aitsuki

      If you look again, you will notice she ships Spooky with EVERYONE. IN Commander’s mind, it seems that Spooky is team bike……

      • ….but Paul is the one she ships Spooky with romantically

        • Chris Dangerfield

          SFX……. record scraaaaaatch

    • Columbine

      May be the Spooky school of Kissing has a strict course system? Mitch is on the bachelors undergraduate course but if he shows promise Professor Spooky may bump him up to the doctorate level program. 😛

  • Well, that’s not quite what I was expecting to see in my LiveJournal feed this morning. 🙂

    Shower scene is indeed steamy (steamier than I expect from Alex on the main comic page, in fact). All joking aside, the detail on the tiles really is amazing, because it gives the scene a feeling of being grounded rather than pure fantasy. So yes, pretty hot. But I think my favourite is Mitch – that is just so sweet, and it makes me feel that Spooky will be careful to remember that Mitch is still very young. I think it needs all three scenes to really make it work, because of the contrast between them.

  • Becky

    Yeah boy! Let’s mess around on top of this dead bear! Lol.

    • Aitsuki

      Oh well now it’s much less sexy! XD Don’t spoil the sexy!

      • Klaus

        It is only an imaginary bear. No real animal was harmed in imagining this scene.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          HA! Good point!

          It’s okay, it used to be one of those rag rugs you see in cabins all the time, but they had the prop department bring in the bear rug just for this shot. You know, to give it that extra soupçon of romantic verisimilitude!

          I like it. Iconography and all that… and, well, after that shower scene (fans self), a bear rug seems rather de rigueur, no? 🙂

  • TwilightDreamer

    looking at the whole page over and over because I can’t stop blushing! XD
    If I HAD to pick, I’d probably say the romantic scene was my favourite, but I love them all!
    Thank you Amanda’s versatile imagination ^_^
    Love the whole page, great work 😀

  • Quick, I want to know how Tsunami is taking all of this. 😀 *grabs bowl of popcorn*

    • Chris Dangerfield

      The Admiral, goes straight for the trouble… LOL…

      We are too much alike. My first thought was, “Well, smarty pants Gordon, I guess everyone DOES want to sleep with Spooky, even in the Commander’s head.” HA!.

  • bronakopdin

    fanservice is such a nice thing 🙂

    gosh the teacher panel AGAIN reminds me to read the short story… it’s like a slap in the face to just DO it x’D (why am I even postponing it all the time?)

    and again the casual face of Amanda is what I like most on this page 🙂
    seriously, it’s nice to see her being more relaxed than usual!

    it’s cool how Tsunami is able to laugh like that in Amanda’s fantasy ^^ see? it’s easy dude!

    but she’s on mostly on the SpookyxPaul ship it seems guess I have to wave over from other ships xD

    oh my life….

  • Mersharr

    I like the shower one best

  • Aitsuki

    Mm…. dat shower scene!

  • Columbine

    The shower scene is the sexiest but my favourite is the romantic scene with Fluke and Spooky. To me it seems far more intimate and well like it has a story behind it. Like it’s a snapshot of a relationship, a deep trusting one, rather than a sex scene.

  • Rauron

    Shower, definitely. That super-casual group fun thing is very nice to see.

  • Suhndog


    – too late for a cold shower..
    I’m ready, Mitch.. let’s practice! oooooo

  • Mary Klemzak

    Amanda and Spooks can read each others minds, can’t they?

    Liking how hentai she’s going!

    And Spooks without his cap?! GASP!

    • Terri Sutton

      How is any of those pictures hentai?

  • Phyre Storm

    Paul is REALLY sorry he asked in 3..2..1..

  • fujoshifanatic

    YAAAAAAAS! Gotta go back to studying; more after my exam.

  • Klaus

    On the one hand, I am partial to partial monty pictures, but on the other, the bath scene is good, clean fun. I think my favorite is panel 2.

  • Vengrov Likeah Boss

    Can’t sleep…terrible day…read this page….going to sleep well. Very well. Thank you commander.

  • Pikinanou

    Hahaha, the classroom really made my day! I’ll Rolling on the floor laughing until next update XD

  • Nichelle Haliday

    I could totally see Spooky in the classroom situation with someone. And Mitch just looks completely adorable in that scene. Definitely a favorite.

    But one of the things I find interesting is that everyone looks incredibly relaxed in Amanda’s fantasies. There’s no fear of being judged or any tenseness; I think it’s part of Amanda’s earlier statement; that non-consensual sex doesn’t interest her. I also enjoy the fact that Spooky appears in every fantasy, and everyone else appears once.

    • Spooky likes to give everyone an equal amount of time, he doesn’t play favorites.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        He’s such a generous little “giver” that scamp. 😀

  • AseretZone

    So…I just thought I’d point out that at this point in time, Kyle isn’t yet 18 but he still made the shower pic. Apparently he’s close enough? Or is she just imagining him in it as well because she knows that he’d be all over that? Is she imagining what he’d look like when he’s 18, maybe?
    Putting Gordon in there, knowing how he feels about it, feels like an awkward fanfic. XD

    Sorry I’ve been so quiet the past few updates, but Nate is coming out any day now and we’ve been busy with all sorts of stuff over here. Loving the art, great bodies.

    • Shhhh! I already told StickFigure down in the comments that we don’t mention that little technicality to Alex. Nothing is wrong on ths page It’s all as it should be xD

      And good luck with little Nate 🙂

    • Keneu

      The author’s comment specifies that “all naked characters are over 18”. So, I guess Amanda imagines them a bit older.

      Good luck with everything.

    • Good luck with little Nate! I’ll be sending warm thoughts your way! 🙂

      • AseretZone

        Thanks! I’ll be sure to tell you guys when he’s born, and post a link to the picture I’ll be posting on Tumblr of him. 🙂 I’m so excited, and you guys have been so supportive this whole time! >_<~<3 Thank you~!

  • J.K. Hogan

    Hahaha, wow, her mind is as bad as mine. LOL

  • alex

    hehe oh man she has an imagination as perverted as mine ^^ that shower scene looks fun XD

    • Terri Sutton

      She hasn’t yet outdone my mine. I see no Spooky’s magical tentacles.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Oh, and apropos of our Commander’s fertile imagination… “LL” has kindly reminded us that Sircea is not to be outdone in that department, not in the slightest… 😀

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Okay if someone else said it already… I’ll repeat it! Now, we know that Tsunami can smile!

    We are $25 away from having him smile in a NSFW way… ung…

    I’ll just this awesome bit of WOOT-AGE… right… here. 🙂

  • Ummm… Excuse me. I need some alone time after that page… 😉

    • Jason Equality King

      Me too. I think I’ll be in my bunk.

      • Danny

        Was that a Firefly reference? 😀

        • Jason Equality King

          Yes it was.

          • Danny


  • “Uh, excuse me Professor Spooky, but can you maybe demonstrate this kissing technique?” [Flyboy bats his eyelashes like he’s trying to break a speed record]

  • andrea

    girl write those fanfics NOW!

  • Spooky as a teacher in kissing. I’d be a very eager student, just like Mitch, and I’d also be doing what I could to get extra lessons until I’d be sure to get an A+ in that class. I’m SURE Spooky would be up to help, being such a patient teacher ^_^

    • Chris Dangerfield

      “t-u-t-o-r-i-n-g” — PRIVATE TUTORING. Extra credit. Summer school… oh puhleeeeze tell me you didn’t forget about all this important stuff! LOL.

  • AmandaStock

    Oh, shower scene is my favourite for sure — that tongue!

  • Keneu

    It’s a tie between the second scene and the last one for me. The shower scene is really sexy and fun – before I knew it I was staring at Kyle’s butt for a good while – but the Spooky and Fluke one looks more intimate and trusting in a different way.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Spooky as a “kissing instructor”…….MMMMMM When is “Show and Tell?”

    • Derkins

      Seems the most plausible out of all them 😀

    • Yuelio Menendez

      Blow of some steam after a mission? XD


  • cotilla

    I looove the first one. It combines two of my favourite things: threesomes and mixed ethnicities.

  • Greg Skudlarek

    Amanda, I just can’t believ that you keep these thoughts in your head! Paul and Spooky aren’t even close to drinking age. For shame! >:(

    • Jason Equality King

      It depends on locale, IIRC. I’m by no means a lawyer, but In the US it’s pretty much 21 across the board (unless a guardian gives it to you, and even then they can be held liable…) In other places it is lower. I think in Australia, one can drink at 18. Also, there’s nothing saying that they’re drinking wine. Maybe they’re drinking sparkling fruit juice or something. 🙂 Anyway it’s a fantasy with in a fantasy, so why am I going on about it? LOL

  • fujoshifanatic

    You are seriously making it hard for us to miss the main story with this interlude, Alex! The cuteness alone is making my brain an amnesiatic pile of mush, and the fan service is just making what’s left ooze out in a never-ending fujoshi nosebleed. :-~P I’m not even sure I’ll have any functional brain cells left by the time we get back to the battle! Hopefully exercising them with schoolwork will protect them from my fangirling, but it’s quite the (delightful) struggle with every page. 😀

    The first panel is so deceptively adorable as Amanda, looking next-level cutesy with her finger next to her blushing cheek, recalls such a racy scene in the next panel. And oh, what a panel it is! Not sure if it was intentional or not, but I like that this shower scenario allows for maximum enjoyment for all parties concerned: a nice, wet environment to keep Kyle’s flames at bay; lots of warmth and touching for Spooky, since we know he likes that sandwich action; and plenty of source-material for Gordon to show off his water-bending tricks (I wonder how “solid” he can make the stuff–and how he’d use it! ;-o).

    Then we have the sweet sensei action going on in the next panel with Spooky and Mitch. That’s one class I would not mind attending at all. Just for the kissing demonstration; I’d probably (reluctantly) excuse myself for any extra-credit activity. X-D

    And while I wholeheartedly cosign the action in the last panel, I am curious as to why Amanda frames that pairing in a romantic context. Is it because Paul reminds her of Anaado? He does have the lithe, muscular build I associate with young wrestlers, and he is taller than Spooky. I wonder…Nevertheless, that fantasy must be a very pleasant one to play out in her head indeed.

    No fair Alex; I really can’t pick a favorite panel! Honestly, they all do it for me, for different reasons. If you force me to pick one, I’d have to say…the whole page! Now may I have another please? 😛

    • Ha! Really glad you liked this one, fujoshifanatic. 🙂 And I like how you looked at Panel 2 from all the angles. 😀

  • Jason Moon

    Wow! I’ll bet the others NEVER expected the Commander to have such a vivid imagination! Especially when you usually see her just being all Commander-y and such.

    • Sunseahl Silverfall

      To be a leader you /need/ imagination…. that’s how you plan for the unpredictable!

  • KiannaLeigh

    Amanda is my hero, now more than ever. A BAMF and a total fujoshi. She’s the whole package.

  • Derkins

  • BurstThrough

    Commander may be the first to make “young protectors” yaoi fanfic though she’s not a fan and kept the scenarios to herself.XD

  • timemonkey

    I thought the shower one would be my fav but teacher Spooky and eager to learn Flyboy were just too cute to not win.

  • I know, most of you guys won’t like this comment – but – I don’t get over it – this unshaded tuft of hair looks like a hole in Tsunamis (empty appearing) head. Panel 2 is maybe hot but… I just want to put flowers in it because now it’s filled with water…

    • LL

      haha! I didn’t notice that.

    • Precious

      Don’t forget to add the pebbles! You can’t have flowers without pebbles 😀

    • Saxon_Brenton

      You’re not the only one. I’ve been having the same reaction for a while. And a few pages back someone else compared Tsunami to a kappa – the Japanese water monster with a bowl in its head holding water which is the source of its strength.

    • As Saxon said, you’re not the only one to mention it. I have as well (to name one), but after the first page where this showed I’m TRYING to ignore it. Gordon has a really bad hair day, eh? Got a bad hair cut. That’s my comment to myself, because it’s so hard to overlook once you’ve noticed 😉

      (Having that head shot of him in Alex’ comment only makes it more obvious)

  • Sarah314159

    I’m late to the party here, got a few updates behind and just caught up now, so maybe this has been said a dozen times, but I just *have* to say it regardless.

    Alex, thank you so, so much for acknowledging and appreciating the full, wide-ranging, varied nature that is common in women’s sexual fantasy lives. This portrayal feels so realistic to me, and it’s great to see that portrayed and all the cooler to see it understood by a man.

    I believe the majority of straight or bi young women who work as closely as Amanda does with a group of sexy males would inevitably have some sexy thoughts or feelings about all or most of them cross her mind. Sure, Amanda might be part of the minority, so it wouldn’t have been implausible for her to say that she doesn’t think about any of her team members except Spooky, but I would’ve been disappointed because that fits so well with the old stereotype… the stereotype that if women do have “those thoughts,” it’s only about one special someone, her lover or her crush. I’m sure there are women for whom that’s true, and nothin’ wrong with that, but for so many of us ladies, well, our minds wander into all kinds of places sometimes, regardless of what’s appropriate or realistic or what we’d ever actually do, and nothin’ wrong with *that* either.

    This is a rockin’ tribute to those of us ladies whose minds wander that way. I love that a woman’s fantasy life is used as the setup for something as fun and hot as the scenes on this page. Also that Amanda doesn’t seem to be ashamed or worried about her fantasies, only a bit embarrassed at telling them to the room. It’s a totally positive portrayal. Thanks, Alex, you made my day.

    • Thank you, Sarah. It makes me happy to hear that you think I did an OK job with that — and even happier that it brightened your day. 😀

  • Alr8whotookgaby

  • Michael

    Quick question for @alexwoolfson:disqus :

    Just out of sheer curiosity, about the Mark of Laampros shown in

    Is this based on an actual script/language you’ve developed for the demon-world, or is it just a cool design without any deeper meaning? I.e., can it be translated into and from English?


    • jreed3842

      Ooo! I’m kinda interested in knowing about that too! That’s a good question!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Alex will have to weigh in…

      However, I heard that the runic version, got translated into a cyrillic one that finally got murdered into a sort of latin version. For example:

      ph’nglui mglw’nafh Laampros R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn

      Which, properly translated, means: “In his house with George Finnegan Eyeball, Laampros lies to Duncan.”

      * This was mistakenly ripped off from Alex by HP Lovecraft, one night when they got drunk playing cards and Alex forgot his notebook. Reportedly, Lovecraft was high as a kite and mistranslated it by using the vulgar latin and not going back to the original runic version.

      I believe Alex has corrected that in this book. Alex?

            ‘Zactly! Preaching to the choir Michael, preaching to the choir…

            (see I have a totally non-creative underhanded theory that if I keep casually repeat this total head-canon suggestion to the ether… that the Woolfson, will wake up one day and think some version of it was his idea all along… Hey, it’s worked for me in business, so why not real-life? HA!(/i)

            See, it’s like this: (Side story, bonus comic, future comic, doesn’t matter). Spooky and Kyle (’cause he’s Daddy Laampros’ boy, so he might have mad-powerz in hell) and Amanda (’cause she IS the Commander and teh awesome and will kick demon arse) split off (for the job) and travel into hell to rescue Anaado – cute demon twink you mentioned – and have hellish adventures and bring him back to live HEA with Spooks and TYPs.

            I trust these three, led by Spooky, to have the sexual maturity to deal with rescuing Spooky’s uninhibited and very grateful demon boyfriend. So, if a four-way had to happen (strictly for gratitude-type reasons), I think Alex could keep it under control. 😀

            There that’s my floating head-canon looking for a home until someone says NO. (and even then I’ll ignore you.) LOL.

          • Michael

            Speaking of head-canon, check this:

            Spooky is actually the adopted grandson of Dr Henry Jones and Wilhelmina Scott, who adopted an orphan who had previously been living on the streets of Hong Kong. After escaping the Temple of Doom, Wan Li A.K.A Short Round is adopted by Henry and Wilhelmina, taking the last name Jones and living a full and happy life. He finds a wife, and has a son — but the Thugee cult has secretly regrouped after many years, and is fixated on revenge against Jones for the death of their former leader, Mola Ram. Their new leader uses dark magic to force Wan Jones’ young son through a gateway into Hell on his 13th birthday, erasing (almost) all memory of the boy’s life up to that point.

            It’d be tempting to cut a generation and say that Spooky IS Short Round, but Short was born in the 1920s, so he would have to have spent far more than a year in Hell, without aging.

            That’s my theory, and I’m sticking to it.

    • I did not provide Adam with the art for that. He communed with the underworld independently to create the Mark of Laampros. 🙂

      • Michael

        Cool, thanks.

        For the record, if you ever do need a functional language and/or script, look me up. 🙂

        • Oh, really? Tell me more.

          • Michael

            I construct languages as a hobby, and have done since I was a teenager. I’m working on one now that I call GNangangga Gihumu, (nyang-ang-ga gi-who-moo) “the speech [way/method] of [the] tribe”, which is a pseudo-tripartite (ergative-accusative), demi-agglutinating lang with no unvoiced plosives and a preponderance of nasals and prenasalised consonants (m, n, gn, ng, mb, nd, ngg). The sound-profile is inspired loosely by a mix of Australian Aboriginal and African place names (like Dandenong, Bundamba, Nyasa, Malawi, Ndende, Mbalam).

            My main interest with constructed langs is playing with syntax and structure, so I rarely make anything even recognisably similar to English in either form or function.

          • Interesting. I might just take you up on that then at some point. 🙂

          • Michael


          • Keneu

            That sounds really interesting (then again, I’m a big languages nerd, so ymmv). Do you also think up other things like their alphabets and numerical systems or do you stop at the languages?

          • Michael

            A lot of people don’t, just using whichever writing system (english, cryllic, etc.) they want to use, and sticking with the Arabic numerals.

            As this is part of a larger ‘constructed world’ thing I’m doing, I like to cover all bases eventually. My con-people count in base-6 (0,1,2,3,4,5, 10,11,12,13,14,15,20,21,22,23,24,25 etc.) I haven’t made the writing system for them yet, I’m thinking it might be a very primitive pictographic system though, as the people using this lang are in the middle of their agricultural revolution.

  • Kate G

    Oh my, threesomes. Man, I got to be friends with this girl. I love that the Commander has a very dirty mind and it’s more homosexual over heterosexual. I think there’s a preconceived notion that if you are heterosexual like the Commander (or as far as we know), you must only have heterosexual fantasies (or only like heterosexual porn) and if you’re homosexual, you must only have homosexual fantasies (and like homosexual porn.) Uh, no. I love that you’ve broken that, Alex, and shown her having something I think that’s very common among women, and that’s homosexual fantasies (whether it be females or men in the fantasy.)

    AND I DIDN’T HIT ANY THERAPY BALLS TODAY during my horse lesson! Wooooooo! Level up!

  • jreed3842

    Okay…. Guys and @chrisdangerfield:disqus … I need you to sacrifice another goat for me. I have made it past the first step in a job application, and I really hope this one goes well.
    Over the past few months I have made it to the final stages in the hiring process, but for one reason or another I don’t end up getting the job. (I must smell bad…. Maybe I should join Kyle, Spooks, and Tsu in that shower. ;-D)
    So…. I need some sacrificed goat power on my side this time!
    Hopefully soon I’ll get a call telling me that I’m advancing even further in the process. *fingers crossed*
    (Also. I won’t tell the Admiral you’re sacrificing a goat if you don’t. … See I made sure not to highlight her name so she wouldn’t see the conversation. O.o)

      Woot-worthy joyousness!!! Thanks!

      Heck, Gordon is smiling in Amanda’s fantasies. Clearly he’s much happier, undressed in that shower, than wearing his skimpy uniform. We’re all such “givers” that we just want our Tsunami NSFW happy?

      Right? Right people? LOL.

    • Danny

      It seems that the Patreon has reached the Tsunami goal! Break out the balloons and bubbly drinks!

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Okay let’s be real for one second…

    I had a whopping monster headache today. You know the kind that are behind your eyes and ALLLL the over the counter drugs in the world just won’t kill that evil fecker dead? Yeah, THAT headache.

    So I couldn’t read, couldn’t really play video games, couldn’t write, didn’t want to eat (I know… how bad is that?). So, basically I apologize to everyone on Tumblr. All I could do was look at pretty pictures and reblog. That was the extent of my capabilities. Yep, that kind of day. So sad.

    So then the mail came and with it my Fantastic Young Protector ‘Greeting’ Cards.

    You remember when Mitch got shocked by the mention of THE ANNIHILATOR and dropped the car? Well it’s that shot. Printed on a beautiful heavy card stock with a blank interior (well you can choose). They are classy and massively awesome and packaged in a very cool plastic container. Honestly, they are nicer than almost anything you can find in the best gift/card shops.

    Trust me, I’m not on the TYP advertising budget… these cards made my headache and day better (well that and my man coming home and having the rest of the week off. MASSIVE SEXY WOOT, plus watching some hockey together). So, I’m feeling better. Cards might make you feel better too.

    Aside: Do you want to know how weak I am… I actually considered these…

    and then these…

    BUTT, I remained strong… for now. Headache… WHAT headache?

    • I’m really glad you liked them, Chris! Keep feeling better, my friend! 🙂

    • Klaus

      Gives new meaning to “get well cards”.

  • Jamie

    oh man, i missed a camp!

    ah well. dat shower scene, tho

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Quick Question: Has anyone checked to see if our more rabid Star Fighter fans are alive and well this morning? After burying themselves in the new video game in search their OTPs?

    The lovely Starr was determined to break the entire game in one 24 hour period. I just think we may need to get the smelling salts, pizza and lots of coffee for Doki, Sapfo, Danish, Starr and god knows how many more.

    Alert — there are only so many hours before camping and we have to get these people conscious!! LOL.

    • I bought cookies, for extra energy in the weekend while I play 😉

      • Chris Dangerfield

        SHE’S ALIVE!!!!! (mmmmmm… cookies)…

    • *hums happily* I think I just got stabbed in the back by Deimos. ^_^

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Stabbed euphemistically or for reals? LOL.

        • Well, I was kind of spying on Cain/Abel sexy times and died….and I had run into Deimos just before…

    • Klaus

      I have not got around to trying yet. Four Kickstarter projects delivered within two days: Starfighter, Dice Crawl (a board game), Homesick (another point and click computer game) and Babarians of Lemuria (a tabletop role playing game). Plus we had a dinner at work last night (which happens once or twice a year), so I didn’t get home until bed time.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        And THAT ladies and gents is our tireless and unstoppable Klaus! You go boy!

    • Punkpoemprose

      I’m still heartbroken that I never got around to joining the kickstarter. Looks like I’ll have to buy it soon, I’m such a Cain/Abel fangirl.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    WOW… yeah… I think that says it all. (LIE)

    1) Like I said (headache) I’m a little slow this week so I’m squeezing this in minutes (shhhh Admiral, many minutes) before the new page, but it’s for me, so it’s okay.

    Design note: I love the jagged diagonals of the dividers. I think it’s so effective in helping us feel the other world of Amanda’s imagination. Also the placing, size and color of the small captions. Unobtrusive and just right.

    1) Wanted to acknowledge smart people below who already said what I’m going to repeat here, but I want to repeat it… so (bows) respect… 🙂

    This was a really sweet page. Really. Despite all the steam. Super warm and happy on top of said steam. That not easy to do in our sexed-up comic worlds. To do it and have us feel so happily complete with it?? I want to postulate, if I may (thank you):

    Alex has built a cast of characters we love, so we don’t need the porn to feel the love. I think that’s a notable achievement. Bravo Alex. Personally, I’m old enough to have explored gay-porn (THOROUGHLY, lol) and long ago was a man-slut, so I’m aware that I’m not reacting as a teenager might, but most ‘real’ porn is dead-eyed. You can see that, to the actor, that penis could be anyone’s. Straight porn is the same as ‘she’ stares at the ceiling and waits for it to be over. NOT WITH TYP… here the touch Kyle’s a finger to Spooky’s tongue and Tsunami’s fond smile is sexier than a box of skanky DVD’s. If you don’t feel that way yet, you may be lucky and one day you will. Porn will always be there… Hey, it built the VHS, DVD industries and the Internet (look it up). But true AFFECTION is hard to find and (to me) worth it’s weight in gold. Thanks Alex and Julie… had to say it.

    Additionally, a (teasing) note about SHIPPING COMMENTS:

    First off: No, no, no, no, no, Doki, Doki, Doki! You CANNOT teach me what “OTP” (one true pair) means and then mess with the sanctity of Chris’ KyleSpooky ship by trying to wedge the lovely Paul into the mix… NOT YET! LOL.

    This is a Commander fantasy. FANTASY! HA!

    /begin excess sentimentality

    So, I’m sticking with my ship for the moment. However, I will honestly say this. Thinking about Spooky (or all of them honestly – bravo Alex), I just want them to be happy. So the whole shipping idea reminds me of a line near the end of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice:

    Elizabeth Bennet is asking her father for permission to marry Mr. Darcy (hackles down feminists… this is 1813 Jane Austen) and her father’s response to her is how I feel about Spooky ending up with Amanda (rather than Kyle)… almost exactly…

    “Well, my dear,” said he [Mr. Bennet/me], when she [Elizabeth/Spooky] ceased speaking, “I have no more to say. If this be the case, he/Amanda deserves you. I could not have parted with you, my Lizzy/Spooky, to any one less worthy.”

    And that’s just it. Spooky has become too important, too generous, too loving, too strong to join to any character less worthy than the very best for him, whosoever that may be. While I like Kyle for the job, Amanda is very definitely worthy.

    /end excess sentimentality (already way TL:DR, sorry)

    Panel #1: Okay, I love her expression. Having read the script, Julie more than nailed this, but it’s so purposeful that I almost want to bold the type of “…THINGS THAT WOULD NEVER REEEEEALY HAPPEN.” Personally I just read that she’s telegraphing that little bit. Head interp. but it made me lol. And yes she’s still adorable, bravo Julie.

    Aside: I love that Adam & Vero’s Amanda is so fiercely formidable and GORGEOUS… (last panel?)…

    … and yet, here Julie has given us a huggable version of the same woman. Very comfortable in her own skin, but a little thoughtful and vulnerable with friends. It’s a lovely rounding of her already awesome character.

    Panel #2: SHOWER. THAT. IS. ALL. (LIE) Okay, seriously, every part of this panel works. The bits of body hair are absurdly fascinating. Well done! The tongue touch is excellent (I am quite capable of imagining erections, but I don’t know that I’d have inserted that tiny tongue touch into my mind-scene, or had it seem to mean as much as it does here?! Great stuff). Spooky and Tsunami’s happy expressions are gold. Nom nom nom…

    Panel #3: You know, no one teaches this stuff. I would have never missed class. How cute is Mitch, the only one in class and raising his hand. How sweet is Spooky’s smile. Love it. Don’t kid yourself. I’ve ended relationships with bad kissers. Dancing and kissing can tell you a lot about how someone is going to be in the main ACT! Maximum important life skill!

    Panel #4: The over-the-top grandness of this iconic scene gives us a peek behind Amanda’s tough exterior (did you imagine there was this pinch of lush romantic is such a formidable woman… love how that shows those things aren’t mutually exclusive. It’s so ridiculously perfect. The flushed expressions. Red wine. Roaring fire. AND… BEAR. SKIN. RUG. Every book and movie forever just has to throw in a bear skin rug to tell you it’s the most romantic fireside scene ever… and IT IS. LOL. (and yet it’s just a fantasy… can’t really see it.)

    I loved this page. Wonderful fireworks to this game and interlude. Just lovely.

    I had a thought. I wonder if this is Amanda’s way of mentally matchmaking Spooky. A sign of how badly she wants the right person for his happiness. And, maybe a touch easier than including herself in the lineup? How many of us have kept more mental distance when thinking about someone we are TRULY attracted to? A way of protecting our hearts when they are very close to the center. Just a thought?

    I can only add by saying THANK YOU BOTH! I enjoyed this page all week long… and may come back to it frequently. LOL.

    • Thank you for another wonderful play-by-play, Chris!

      (And I agree with you about the “dead-eye” acting in mainstream porn. It was the major reason why visual porn never did it for me as a kid.)

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Exactly true for me also, obviously. Strange, when you’re at the age that sex is such a huge focus, to realize that what is in the mainstream is missing such a huge component. It took me some time and maturity to understand WHAT that missing piece was.

        It has a lot to do with why I like my men illustrated these days… LOL.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Camping = Smores … I’ll just leave this here.

    Something to discuss while camping. How many other superheroes are there with ‘demon dads’?, and more specifically haven’t been turned nasty if not downright psychotic by it?

    I ask because I’ve had a silly image sitting at the back of my mind for a while. Red Hot is sitting on a rooftop with some other superheroes who have demon dads (or wannabe demon dads, in the case of Nightcrawler). It’s a beautiful day, everyone is relaxed, they’re passing around doughnuts, and Kyle is using his powers to heat hot chocolate. There’s a caption: ‘Everone felt better after talking about their demon dad issues and wannabe demon dad issues. Yes, even Hellboy.’

    So I’ve got Red Hot.
    Nightcrawler is a given because of his happy attitude, even if his dad Azazel is a wannabe demon.
    A choice from at least two of the versions of Raven – the Wolfman/Perez era or the TeenTitans Go! cartoon versions are social introverts but are still good people. The Nu52 version I’m not so sure about; she seems a bit too antihero to me.
    Hellboy, despite his grumpiness and his stated desire to not think let alone talk about the hell stuff.

    On the other hand, Marvel’s Hellstorm is someone who I have the impression has given himself too much over to social and political manipulation to be able to relax and unwind around his ‘peers’. Again, too antihero.

    And I have no idea about any relevant characters from anime or manga.

    So, who would you put at this little self-help group, and why?

    • Terri Sutton

      Would Hellboy be acceptable?

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Maybe? In same ways no, in some ways yes. By which I mean, Hellboy is quite old, has seen a lot of crap, in many ways could be considered a hardbitten and grumpy old man but still retaining the physical volatility to punch out the lights of anything that annoys him (a lot like Atomic Robo, in that regard). It’s a bit of a stretch to have him ‘hanging out’ with people many decades his younger. And he’d probably be throwing back a beer rather than having hand-warmed hot chocolate.

        But at a stretch I can see him doing it. Maybe indulgently, in the sense that he’d think the youngsters would get more out of it than he would. But in the end, yes.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Well you can ask, “How many people can he hang with period?” and how mature is he compared to his “Great Old One” parent? I don’t know. Interesting question as to what a “kid” is if your parents are ancient immortals.

  • Good evening, good morning and good afternoon!!

  • It’s camping/writing night… trying to tear myself away from SF: Eclipse for a bit XD

    • stickfigurefairytales

      From the screenshots I’ve seen, that must be very difficult!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I’m just glad to know you’re alive and still sane. LOL.

  • davefragments

    Hey, I made it.
    I had to put that book down!

    • ‘Put that thing back where it came from, or so help me…’ 😉

      thanks ^//.//^

  • RSC

    So, I found this:… It seems Commander was not being completely honest. But who could blame her, really?

    • Brian Bartholomew

      One of the side effect of the Truth or Dare Arc, is that once it is over, everyone will forget who said what.

    • Not necessarily. There are many people out there who love to fantasize, but have no use for porn. I don’t see any contradiction. And the last frame with the knowing grin is a great restatement of what was previously said. Besides, getting tipsy during Truth and Dare, is a thing. 🙂

  • Becky Buckwild
