The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Truth or Dare—Page 8

352 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Truth or Dare—Page 8

So, how do you feel about your Truth or Dare suggestion now, Fluke?

I had an amazing time at TCAF over the weekend. I got in last night at 10:00 P.M. and I’m just now finding my feet, but it was so awesome to get the chance to meet so many of our Canadian readers! They made me feel so welcome! And all 60 copies of The Young Protectors that I brought with me for the weekend sold out which is a really good sign. This was a special event, but I can’t wait until I’m able to make these available all the time! 🙂

Also, we’re less than $250/month away from unlocking that new Full Monty painting of Tsunami by artist Marccus over at the Patreon Page!

AMW_Comics_TYP-ETE-PATREON-Tsunami-Marccus-Pinup-Headshot_800

Right now, we’re at $7780/month on my Patreon page. If we hit $8000/month, $5+/month Patrons will get to download a wallpaper revealing his whole body in all its muscular, tattooed Full Monty glory and if we hit $8250/month, I’ll post up a link to another wallpaper which adds a beautiful background to show the context of why the big guy is naked (and, trust me, it really is quite pretty and adds a lot to the painting.) And if we hit those Milestone Goals, $10+ Patrons will get sent high-res versions of both images once their payments are processed at the end of the month.

Marccus has done a beautiful job rendering our grumpy, but oh so sexy water bender. You definitely won’t want to miss it!

Also, when the Patrons hit $7500/month in Patreon support, they unlocked a sexy, new wallpaper pin-up — a World Spanning Wallpaper! Using the first voting link I sent, they were able to choose the first half of a sexy pairing from the major (and a few of the minor) characters from any of my comics and they chose Kyle, the hero of The Young Protectors!

And now the vote is completed and it was an incredibly close call! Deacon won it over Spooky with just 1 vote (119 vs 118)! So now I’m going to commission a pin-up for the Patrons featuring Kyle from The Young Protectors getting all full-monty frisky with Deacon from Artifice! Stay tuned for that!

If you become a Patron now and choose to receive the Special Digital Rewards, you will be able to download wallpaper versions of the Full Monty Annihilator Pin-Ups, the Full Monty Spooky Romance Card Pin-Up as well the Sexy Height Chart which shows the male members of the team. You’ll also be able enjoy all the other rewards so far posted, including the “How Spooky Got His Cap” and “What Is It Like To Kiss Spooky?” short stories that folks have liked so much. This is in addition to special back-stage access to script pages, thumbnail pages and penciled pages for all new updates. And, of course, Patrons who chose to get the Special Digital Rewards (which is the vast majority) continue to receive Digital Kickstarter Rewards every Wednesday and get to see special Sneak Previews on Sunday.

Over 1050 of you have already become Patrons in the last few months. There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron, and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits!),

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

I want to send out my warmest thank yous out to all the new Patrons who have joined in the last few days. As you can see in the comments below, a bunch more folks have had a blue, silver, or gold YP badge added to their Disqus avatars, which means they are a Patron. If you see one of these folks, please join me in extending my thanks for directly supporting the making of this comic! And please also send out a special thanks to those exceptionally generous backers who are on the Leaderboard of Awesome page. You all ROCK!

So! It seems Commander has a more interesting fantasy life than we thought. Will we get to peek inside that brilliant, super-powered head of hers and learn exactly what happens in these fantasies?

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

  • stickfigurefairytales

    It’s up!

    • Congrats!

    • As always if I’m not around, I go down to check who got the V. Congratz 🙂

  • stickfigurefairytales

    And wow!

    • davefragments

      I’ll drink to that!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I officially endorse this page.

  • I missed camping. 🙁

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Aw, but at least you’re here now! *hugs* Hi Doki!

      • I kind of took about a 4-5ish hour nap…

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Are you feeling more rested?

          • I feel more awake.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That sounds like a good thing…unless you’re trying to go to sleep properly right after this, in which case it isn’t so helpful.

          • eh, cramping, so probably not any time soon.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Poor Doki! I’m sending you lots of big hugs.

          • Soirbleu

            Me too 🙁
            *is sympathetic*

          • M&Ms?

          • Kit the Coyote

            Tosses a weremole over his shoulder and perks up ears again, sheep and goats forgotten; “CHOCOLATE!!!!” ^..^

          • davefragments

            I keep think of a “were-mole” like the four year old homemade cranberry sauce I just threw out. It once were cranberry but now is green and fuzzy.

          • Kit the Coyote

            Sits at Doki’s feet wagging tail and puppy dog eyes holding up a big bowl of M&Ms in his paws for her.

          • Doki has both Crispy and Peanut Butter M&Ms to share with other cramping ladies. ^_^

            The crispy are more like Whoppers, except M&M sized.

            Thanks Kit. ^_^

          • Kit the Coyote

            Wakes up lying naked next to a sacrificial alter covered with the remains of virgin M&Ms. Realizes he went all furry last night and hopes he didn’t do anything too embarrassing.

          • Soirbleu

            Thank you!

          • You’re welcome. ^_^

          • mogoskier

            I have problems with that too, have you taken anything for it?

          • I had to stop taking Pamprin and Midol because they started to aggravate my heart issues and it wasn’t fun. I am currently using http://store.do-essential-oils.com/clarycalm-essential-oil/ which my mother found and buys for me.

          • mogoskier

            Because you have a heart issue I’m not sure if this is good but try taking some advil. Something about it help the swelling in the body that causes the pain. I’m describing it horribly but ever since my doctor told me to use it my pain and other symptoms have gotten a lot better a lot faster.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I take Aleve for the worst of my cramps (Tylenol and Advil never seemed to help much), but again I’m not sure whether or not it would aggravate your heart issues.

          • I think it is the combination of things in Midol and Pamprin and having to take them all day so that certain things kind of build up a bit. I don’t think it is life threatening, probably, but just annoying as heck to have to deal with along with everything else.

          • mogoskier

            You know I don’t think I have ever heard a “period med” that has ever really been better then just strait up aspirin. Anyone have different experience.

          • Eh, I took them because they took care of the bloating and other things as well as the cramping.

    • *big hugs to Doki* sorry hun! 🙁

    • Terri Sutton

      The Admiral banned goat slaughter so no fun was had by any.

  • Jen Roberts

    I love Amanda so damn much.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Me too, my friend. Me too.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Make it three!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    HELL YEAH!

  • I’m with Paul. Wait, what? HA!

  • Missy_Z

    Intra-team shipping happens within the team? So it’s intra-team intra-team shipping?!? This is getting meta.

  • Tahir Raines

    I see that The Commander is a commander of ships.

  • Ooh Amanda… what have you been thinking…..?

    Thank you so much Alex for bringing those copies to TCAF! So glad my friend could snag me one *cheers extremely loudly*

    • Yay! Glad you were able to get your hands on one. Thank you for sending your friend over! 🙂

  • YangYueLan

    SHE SHIPS IT!!!!! HA!!!!!!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I wonder if she spends any time browsing that fanart site that Paul found…

    • Terri Sutton

      Maybe her hobby is being a muse that telepathically inspires the fan artists.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I am now picturing her beaming out psychic addendums, like “You’re drawing Spooky’s abs too defined… tooooo defiiiiiined…”

    • …she spends her free time writing perhaps… *blushes*

    • Mary Klemzak

      I want the link! Or maybe should go back and try to peek over their shoulders.

  • jreed3842

    Well… Dammit! I missed camping completely!
    I hope everyone had a good time!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Glad you’re here now, though! I myself only got there a little bit before the page went up.

    • Terri Sutton

      I will repeat what I said earlier, Admiral Jane banned goat sacrifice so we didn’t have any fun. So don’t feel bad.

      • Phyre Storm

        Couldn’t you use a sheep?

        • Terri Sutton

          No sacrificing of anything! But she allowed pigs. But they are not koscher or halal.

          • Phyre Storm

            Pigs aren’t part of “anything?”

            Not anymore since you sacrificed them all? 😛

          • Terri Sutton

            She allowed pre-killed pigs. But that really takes the fun out of sacrificing.

          • Phyre Storm

            How about Republican Congresspeople?

          • How about just politicians in general?

          • Phyre Storm

            Eh, they probably taste like ass.

          • Terri Sutton

            “Ass” in the biblical donkey sense or “ass” as in “arse”?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Knowing politicians, I’m guessing the latter.

          • Phyre Storm

            You are correct, although I wouldn’t want to eat either.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            They’re not okay to eat either.

          • ….we have to feed our pets with something….just as long as they cause indigestion we should be fine right?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That reminds me of that joke I saw on tumblr about feeding pets an “all-vegan” diet.

          • Terri Sutton

            I don’t know they sound tough and chewy.

          • Pigs and cows were allowed if they were prescarificed. 😛

          • Adam Black

            Scarifying a pig is cruel.

      • jreed3842

        Oh. Okay then! 🙂

      • Saxon_Brenton

        I will admit that she neatly anticipated and stopped my plans to arm the trigger-happy goats and let shenanigans ensue.

        • Terri Sutton

          What kind of world do we live in where goats are not allowed the American right the bear arms.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It’s because they only have legs, I think. You’ve got to have arms if you want to have bear ones. Or be a bear and then get arms.

          • Terri Sutton

            Next the Admiral will tell us that we do not have the Comedic right to arm bears.

          • Adam Black

            those poor bears

          • Adam Black

            At least Dogs can carry guns
            ( #ThanksJoanathanStarwarse

        • Kit the Coyote

          Here I thought I was the local trickster personification. *grins*

        • Adam Black

          I read that as ‘Trigger happy goatse’

  • Tahir Raines

    In the next to last panel, it looks like The Commander is sending thoughts of Spooky having his wicked way with Fluke into Fluke’s head telepathically.

  • Mary Klemzak

    Freaking out!!

    Hey ships are ships and what our minds come up with are OK. Or should be OK. No judgement here.

    Way to go Commander!

  • timemonkey

    Well played Commander. And it seems Spooky may not have been that far off when he asked her about fantasising about them together during the whole fanart incident.

    • Terri Sutton

      Maybe because he was told about it, which might explain the look they shared.

      • timemonkey

        But they’re all going to forget about what they learned here.

  • In honour of Amanda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Cq8mK1vBRA

    Though no shipping wars please. ^_^

    • stickfigurefairytales

      That was amazing! 😀

    • Terri Sutton

      Don’t know what I watched (well it is a parody of Icona Pop’s I Love It, with anime) but I have no idea what that was but I couldn’t turn away.

    • Now that was lovely, Doki. 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      That was awesome Doki… and curiously addictive… omg… am I turning into a 13 year-old girl? This could be awkward.

      That line, “I don’t care… I SHIP IT!” Well, it reminded me that I found this on Tumblr and thought it rather applied to our shipping situations… (well it made me laugh).

      ——————————-

      IRL CRUSHES: he’s cute, but I don’t know how serious he is about intersectional feminism and combating US imperialism, let alone our personality mismatch

      FICTIONAL CRUSHES: he’s killed 2,000 civilians and he can kill me next for all I care

  • Phyre Storm

    Tsunami freaks out in 3…2…1…

  • Fujoshi detected…

  • mogoskier

    There is a curse. She did say curse and I’m not reading that wrong right.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I think she was referring to the curse that made it necessary for them to do the truth-or-dare thing.

      • mogoskier

        Ohh Yea that makes sense, kinda hoping that it was something deeper then it was.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          I had the same reaction for a second when I read that.

  • Toli Bera

    XD well this would explain why he was looking up the ‘fan art’ last interlude.

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I love this page! The way Amanda draws a finger back through her hair–a bit cheeky, like she is setting up a punch line and then Paul going, “Wait, wut?” Perfect!

    I feel sad that they will forget this scene because it strikes me as precious moments between friends.

  • Is it odd that I find find Panel 1 adorable?

    Also Spooky needs a bigger couch. Though that might be in his office and not his home?

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Not odd at all! And I think you’re probably right about it being his office, since there’s that big filing cabinet and what looks like a desk.

    • Bang on for the office couch from one of the side stories 😉 hehehe

      • Sarah314159

        I initially read that as “bang on the office couch”… 😀

    • kamishiro

      I also think it’s adorable. I love the way they faces are drawn, they just look cute and happy. I find kisses scenes hard to drawn and making very natural, but Julie make it seem easy 🙂

  • Saxon_Brenton

    “And maybe someday when we’re not cursed and are both feeling like grown-ups, we can have a real conversation about what that means”
    It seems that Commander *does* have some snarlk to throw back at Spooky, after all.

    • Terri Sutton

      Of course she is snarky, she is the Commander.

  • syllibub

    I like seeing these glimpses of Amanda’s more playful side — we already know how capable and mature she is, since she’s always been depicted in her leadership role, so it’s really fun to see her being kind of sly here.

    • That’s one of the fun things for me about creating this bonus comic. 🙂

  • Cman65

    Talk about lucky-last

  • Yukiness

    I screamed just now.

  • Yukiness

    Spooky….Fluke…..Flooky?

    What have I done

    • See the link I posted earlier. ^_^

    • Terri Sutton

      Can we not engage in name smooshing? Some things just sound absolutely awful. Flooky case in point (can’t tell if it reminds me of kooky or floozy more).

      • stickfigurefairytales

        And I think that “Spuke” sounds even worse.

        • Terri Sutton

          Reminds me why name smooshing in Star Trek hasn’t ever really taken off, Kirk/Spock is either Spirk (something that sounds like it came from a poorly written sex scene) or Kock.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            *snickers helplessly*

      • Michael

        How about Spaul?

      • timemonkey

        Having a horrible pairing name can be a good chunk of the fun.

  • Michael

    Too many ships in this harbour. One of them has to sail soon, or we’ll run out of dock.

    • That is why Mitch/Kyle has an airship. ^_^

      • Michael

        An armour-plated airship with defensive shields and counter-offensive ammunitions.

        Ain’t nobody taking this ship down.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          What if something happened to its power source? Does it generate its own energy?

          • Michael

            Solar AND lunar panels on the top.

          • Klaus

            Lunar panels! That is a good one.

          • Michael

            I figure if werewolves can gain power from moonlight, magitech (magical technology) should be able to harness it as well.

          • It can also harness lightning. I thought it might come in handy so I didn’t remove that from the plans/blueprints I borrowed from Captain Shakespeare.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Niiiiice.

          • purplefoxglove

            It runs on fire, which is why Kyle regularly has to-

            Sorry. Brain failed.

    • Terri Sutton

      Now, now there will be no need for ship to ship combat or premature shipping. All we have to do is link the boats together, like Cao Cao did at Chibi (wait that was a poor analogy).

      • Michael

        omniship? omnorgy? That would just be messy. Like Grey’s Anatomy messy.

        • Terri Sutton

          The centre boats don’t sway as much and as result not many will experience sea sickness and ship-2-ship communications is so easy. But one stray fireball and it all goes in a blaze.

  • fujoshifanatic

    How can each page be more awesome than the last!?! My love for Amanda just increased 100-fold! She is a fellow fujoshi, who can ship her bae with other cute dudes? YAAAAAAS, HUNTY! On my phone now, but will come back later to give this page some proper adulation–once I’m done squeeing my brains out.

    • 🙂

    • Oh no.. can we call him babe, sweetie, sugarbun.. anything but bae? LOL

      I just can’t with bae. The meme where I’m reminded that ‘bae’ is a way to spell bæ (how some in US now also spell it), and it’s a Danish word for poop, it’s always in my head. Spooky is much but he’s not anything poop-ish xD

      (And bae is also a word for ‘bye’ or something like that in the Icelandic or Farao Islands language)

      • fujoshifanatic

        LOL, such is the hazard of living in an increasingly global society! Hopefully boo (our American slang for beau) does not have similar connotations?

        • Jason Wexler

          Is that what boo means? That so changes so many old conversations for me, yikes.

          • fujoshifanatic

            Talk about piquing my curiosity…

        • Terri Sutton

          Carnies at our local show used to scream boo in a attempt to scare us in the haunted house ride.

          • fujoshifanatic

            LOL, if that was a while back, then that is the correct, original use of the word for us too. Using it as a synonym for beau is a rather recent mutation of the word over here.

          • Terri Sutton

            I believe that beau is still in use where I am, but that could be because we have a bunch of pretentious people who like pronouncing it with French accent.

          • fujoshifanatic

            And in my neck of the woods, we call those folks “bougie,” short for bourgeoisie. 😉

          • Terri Sutton

            We call them Yuppies.

          • fujoshifanatic

            Same difference. 🙂

          • Terri Sutton

            Isn’t language wonderful.

          • fujoshifanatic

            I know, right? One of the reasons I was an English major in college. 🙂

        • Klaus

          Hazard indeed. This woman uses her Thai nickname as a brand name in English language marketing:

          http://www.cookingwithpoo.com/cooking-classes

  • dartist123

    If Spooky doesn’t put his arm back around Kyle soon, I’m going to die- purely out of concern for Spooky’s well-being

    • Michael

      “Sorry Paul, Kyle’s bed is softer”

  • Klaus
    • Terri Sutton

      Nothing here has mentioned showers at all!

      I am now slightly disappointed.

      • Klaus

        Nothing here has mentioned showers yet.

    • Michael

      Maybe he’s the one who put it in her head to start with.

      • fujoshifanatic

        I think the first time they kissed planted the seed for that little fantasy. 😛

  • Melinda M

    ……I am unsure of what to think right now. Can…can we go back to cute Kyle/Spooky things. Plz? Forever? 😛

  • Greg Skudlarek

    Yes! More fanservice! Thanks Alex, keep it coming! 🙂

  • LOL.. with every page I get more an more sad that Fluke won’t remember any of this the morning after. At this point he’s completely mindblown. She sure has his full attention now.

  • Fabulous Alien

    Boy, poor Paul can’t catch a break! He didn’t know about Amanda and Spooky and now he finds out that his boss fantasizes about him getting it on with is teammate.

    Based on what we know from the interlude, I think Paul is experiencing mild shock (Gordon would have taken it much worse, I suppose), but no matter how open minded you are, knowing that someone you are close to imagines you and your friend being intimate has to be somewhat unsettling.

    Can’t wait to see where this story goes!

  • Sadly I didn’t get to camp today. I did spend almost 1½ hour trying (my snooze button hates me) but days of sleeping weird has caught up with me.

    Don’t have much more time to comment now, but I want to say that despite me voting for Spooky in the 2nd round on Patreon, I’m also happy that Deacon won this, yet again, very close call. Losing 1st round with one vote, and winning the 2nd also only with one vote. That’s just.. wow! Deacon has earned his spot xD

    I think I’m less sad because, if I remember correct this early morning, we’ll also get Spooky/Kyle art as a part of the final art from the KS project (if not then I really want that for another time!).

  • kamishiro

    It’s nice to see Amanda in a more relaxed scenario. With Spooks :3
    I’m holding on my hope of this ship. T__T

    Love Paul’s face. He is just like “What ” everytime. In the next page, Spooky will prob be super cool abt it and Paul will still be “What” XDDD
    I’m super curious to learn more about Amanda and Spooks, their past and what the future aheads them really captivates me. This page kinda gives me hope for them :3333 And of course how Amanda formed the team, and gathered everyone together :DD
    But i can’t waaaaait to see Flyboy turn. I can’t even imagine what we will learn about him.
    He is so adorable and i can’t help picture him with Kyle. Both are so cutey and lovable.

    Bet Tsunami question turn is gonna be a tearjerker. I just feel that.

    • And off screen Mitch is writing a note to himself…”Spooky/Fluke or Spooky/Kyle?”

      • kamishiro

        lol xD he would be totally clueless later when the curse is lifted, but the seed would be planted and if they were to be cursed again i bet the would be the like Amanda now and answer both 😛

  • I had a moment wondering, read the panel where she closes her eyes, if Amanda mentally shared a flash of thoughts with the group/just Paul when she said that xD

    Now that would be something to subdue Paul for a while. Maybe he’s done asking questions, even indirect, now. Oh the thoughts and images Amanda could share with the group.

    And leaving that detail here, I must leave too for now.

  • fujoshifanatic

    Okay, I’m home printing some stuff for class, and I had to come back to say how much I. Love. This. Page!!! Panel 1 gives us such yummy fanservice, and for those of us who read the bonus story, lets us know that she broke that promise at least one other time (though I suspect it was many more times than that!) I wonder how far they got? And what exactly were the circumstances that ended it? Who exactly ended it? Sooo many questions!

    I love how directly she is able to let Spooky know that there’s some unfinished business there, and that she is willing to deal with it when the time is right. My God she is so cool! Even cooler still how she can matter-of-factly just let the other team members know what she thinks about them all in regards to sex. Would that all young people were so self-composed and aware about their feelings! Relationships would not be so messy at that age.

    And can I say Alex, that you gave me so much LIFE with those last two panels! Not only did she have that fujoshitastic reveal, but that she was so playful with it! Paul’s head is about to pop off, and I love it!! I wouldn’t be surprised if that “you” referred to more than one member of the team. Wouldn’t if be awesome if that time the boys found found that fanart in the first interlude wasn’t the first time Amanda had seen it! X-D If I didn’t know she was already boo’d up in spirit, I would beg her to marry me! Hm, now that marriage equality is so close, maybe the next great cause is polyamourous marriage rights…now thats the ticket…!

    So glad you had a good time in Toronto, Alex! And did so well with the book up there! Can’t wait until we get our copies and all the swag that goes with it! Now I want to cosplay both Spooky and Commander! In solemn tribute to the lovely ship you have christened for me Alex.

    Thank you for this lovely page; I shall return when class is safely behind me to love on all these great comments. 🙂

    ETA: Yay for the Deacon/Kyle pair up! Lets hope nobody’s circuits get melted over that scene, aye?

    • Thank you for such a fun reaction, fujoshifanatic! And very glad you enjoyed the page!

      And yes, I had a great time at TCAF. And I’ll look forward to seeing your cosplay of both those characters at the next Con I see you at! 😀

    • Having read the prose stories on Patreon, I have some thoughts and theories, but I won’t share here because it’s spoilers for anyone who hasn’t read the stories (+ it’s only thoughts that might not be anything).

  • Aleks

    I ship Kyle and Spooky so hard

    • Madock345

      I ship the entire team in all conceivable figurations.

      Except Tsunami. I really just can’t get into tsunami. Maybe when we’ve learned more about him and I can figure out more of his personality than “grouchy older brother”.

      • bronakopdin

        “…with a little too much muscle for some people’s tastes”
        🙂

        I’m the same here!

      • Yeah, I think Tsu-Tsu is pretty hot (maybe a little too much muscle if it was RL), but he’s moved too far into the protective brother-zone that I can’t ship him with anyone. Sure, art with him and one of the others would be hot, but a ship.. I just can’t.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Ummm… me too.

  • I don’t know everyone’s first names. Can someone help a guy out?

    • fujoshifanatic

      Amanda=Commander
      Gordon=Tsunami
      Paul=Fluke
      Mitch=Flyboy
      Kyle=Red Hot
      Spooky=himself 🙂

  • Madock345

    Dammit I missed camping again! Stupid finals, glad they’re finally over at least. Ha, FINALly, geddit?

    I’m bad at jokes.

    Anyway… This page went about exactly like I was expecting it to, except I *didn’t* expect to get that little glimpse into commander’s head. Gives me great hope for what kind of things we might see on the next page.

  • Michael

    I’ve been reading through the archives, and just noticed something that is (to) me startling in hindsight.

    http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch1-page-17/

    Neither Duncan or Sircea ever replied to Kyle’s request to “promise not to screw with me”. Given what happens later, they could both say with a straight face that they never promised not to lie and manipulate Kyle.

    :O

    • Klaus

      Would you trust either if they did promise?

      • Michael

        No, but this just legitimises their betrayal even more.

    • Exactly. That was the time in the story I knew for sure something was going to happen. Not what, but something. Until then I had clear suspicions (based on Duncan’s tricksy behavior), but when they used each other to not make that promise to Kyle, I knew all bets were off .

      • Michael

        It really is wonderful how many subtle hints are so clear in hindsight but so subtle beforehand. Duncan’s hidden smirk, the cheesy dialogue, the hidden malice bubbling just under the surface of Dunc’s gentlemanly exterior…

        It’s really well done, and just shows that we’ll have to keep a really sharp eye out in future chapters.

  • Klaus

    Anone up for making a prediction? How many tines will Paul say “Wait. What?” in this interlude? Twice so far.

    • bronakopdin

      gosh I just thought the same when I read this page 😀

  • I wonder how often *Spooky* fantasises about them all showering on the same day?

    • Chris Dangerfield

      It can’t be more often than I do? 😀

  • bronakopdin

    @alexwoolfson:disqus I bet someone told you by now but just in case: in panel 3 Amanda says 2 times when at the line skip ^^ I guess you’d like to correct it at some point before printing (even if this is in the far future…)

    this now reaaaally reminds me to finally read the latest two short stories from the patreon, I always forget about them when I have a little time inbetween uni and part-time T^T but seeing this I really want a detailed and worded version of how it feels to kiss ma Spooky >A< finally…

    if I had to guess their ages from that memory… 16 and 18? what do you guys say?

    The way Amanda is talking about all this already seems quite grown up to me actually but I get it if she's only referring to Spooky on the inside while saying it in a diplomatical way and mention them both xD
    I wonder if she already realized that some dudes never grow up ^^

    and HOLY I actually didn't think that she is fantasizing about others at all! and the fact she's a fujoshi in parts makes we wanna high five her so bad 😀

    (for those who don't know the term: fujoshi comes from the manga fandom and means a girl that likes yaoi/shounen-ai (aka guy x guy) stories. sadly it's littereal meaning is "rotten girl" though. the male equivalent (aka a guy that likes guy x guy stories) is called fudanshi while a fudanshi is not neccessarily gay…. I probably could have made this shorter but oh well, those who knew will probably skip this part anyway xD)

    • Thanks for the typo catch, bronakopdin! Fixed!

      And thank you for your fun reaction here. I’ll be curious to hear what you think about those Patreon stories. 🙂

      • bronakopdin

        my pleasure 🙂

        and I’ll make sure to write here or over at the patreon when I enjoyed them 😀

  • Adam Black

    So, anybody else wondering about Commander’s drawing skills?

    • Chris Dangerfield

      HA! She’s a Rembrandt… I’m sure of it. Or maybe a Michelangelo… (record scratch)!

      Wait! I’m being totally sexist… how about female artists from the Renaissance era: Sofonisba Anguissola, Lucia Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, Fede Galizia, Diana Scultori Ghisi, Caterina van Hemessen, Esther Inglis, Barbara Longhi, Maria Ormani, Marietta Robusti (daughter of Tintoretto), Properzia de’ Rossi, Plautilla Nelli, Levina Teerlinc, Mayken Verhulst, and St. Catherine of Bologna (Caterina dei Vigri)…

  • Adam Black

    I think she sent a mental image to Kyle.
    ( although it could also be tsunami )

    She just found a loophole. Shes telling the truth. In fact thats a loophole that always works in that game. I never thought of it like that.

    • bronakopdin

      I don’t think she showed it to Kyle, why would she? At this point noone knows about his preferences yet, or mabe you just wanted to say “Paul”?
      While I doubt that she would since he’s still underage ^^

    • I did wonder too, if she ‘spoke’ to someone else mentally. IF she did it could be Paul.. or someone else (if someone else, I have a theory).

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Devious thy name is @disqus_FidZAwLkzS:disqus. Take notes people he’s just found the loophole in the Veritas curse!

  • Kate G

    OH HO HO HO HO HO! Fluke and Spooky daydreams! Commander, you are naughty!

    Fluke, are you really this dense in real life or are you only dense when you’re cursed with truth-telling curses? I feel like you are being EXTRA DENSE as of late.

    Today I have a horse lesson (today being Wednesday, folks; I know some of you are still stuck in Tuesday-land.) Hopefully, I’ll get to do some more trotting. Last week wasn’t a good week for trotting as I just couldn’t get in rhythm with Scooby so I was posting out of rhythm. Posting out of rhythm is NOT GOOD for your relationship with your horse. Your horse starts giving you glares. (I was really tired for the record having just gotten over a lupus flare.)

    THEN, Friday is my second show. I don’t know if he’ll keep me in the independent walking class or move me up into one of the trotting classes. I’m kind of hoping he’ll keep me in the walking class. Not too confident in my trotting yet. Steering, I have issues. I’m sure I’ll get it but it’s hard because it’s new.

    • bronakopdin

      I love that your horse’s name is Scooby 😀

      but then I wonder if you accidentally call him Spooky sometimes xD

      • Michael

        HA! You just like the idea of someone riding Spooky in front of a large audience. 😛

        • bronakopdin

          maybe my subconscious did 😀

        • Kate G

          HA HA HA HA HA.

          I never really equated Scoobs with Spooks. Whenever I see Scooby I honestly think of the cartoon Great Dane, “Scooby Doo” whom he’s named after though the resemblance ends there. I get my nails painted the colors of Scooby’s collar and tags from the cartoon on weeks when I have a show too as a sort of good luck thing.

          If there’s any horse that’s like Spooky at my stables, it’s probably Chance (I call him Chancey.) He’s a sprightly little Pinto pony. He’s always full of cheer. EVERYONE LOVES CHANCE. There is not one kid or adult who dislikes Chance.

          If I had to pick a YP character that best describes Scooby, it’s probably a Fluke/Kyle (Flyle?) mash. He’s quite a confident horse that has this approachable aura but is damn stubborn on certain points. Like trotting when I say trot. I’m getting better at it but he still likes to resist me. Oh, and like all horses, he loves being beautified. Unlike all horses, he’ll make you work on beautifying because he’ll go poop while you’re brushing him and then he’ll STEP IN IT! (True story. This happened today when I groomed him. You pick out that hoof. Yuck!) Oh, and he hates getting dressed (getting his saddle and stuff on. He throws a hissy fit.)

      • Kate G

        Nope, because he isn’t Spooky. Scooby Dooby Doo is a stubborn horse. Sometimes I think I got paired with him so there could be a test of wills and who would break whom first. Everyone says Scooby is an easy horse, but nooooo he is a stubborn ass thing to me.

  • ProudPlatypus

    So Amanda’s not responsible for some of that fan art the guys came across a while back right? *Eyebrow wiggles* Or maybe, even if they don’t remember, this conversation might have been the thing to spur them to search for it.

  • LL

    She ships it.

  • somebody

    well, that means fanart time for me 🙂 can’t wait to draw one of them

    • Klaus

      Just one?

      • somebody

        I think I’ll start with one and see if it’s too embarrassing to continue or not

    • I’ll look forward to seeing that. 🙂

      • Chris Dangerfield

        You’re not alone! 🙂

    • o_o Fanart. Me likey that idea.

      <..>
      ..*whispers*.. will it be a bath scene?

      • somebody

        hohoho good idea >:3

  • James Belnap

    I thought Kyle was older than Spooky?

    • Klaus

      Six years ago Spooky returned after a year in hell, starting on his 13th birthday. That makes him about 2 years older than Kyle.

    • In real comic time line Mitch has recently turned 15. Paul has either just turned 17 or is very close to it. Kyle has just turned 18 (since he did that in chapter 2). Spooky is 20, Gordon is 21 and Amanda is 22.

      This ToD takes place maybe a couple or a few months before the current timeline.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        See, but that is before Kyle goes through the ‘time-slip’ and ends up slightly older than the 17 year old Duncan and they have the one and only true loving moment that young gay Duncan ever had.

        Then Kyle was inadvertently sucked back to the present and Duncan’s heart was so broken at being left alone that he became the criminal we know today…

        Right Alex? ALEX? Hellloooooooo? (hmmmm he must have stepped out.) I’m sure he will confirm this shortly. 🙂

        • Kit the Coyote

          Or decide its better than what he planned and runs with it. hehe

        • How ever far off this theory is (or HUGE plot-twist, isn’t), it would actually leave a plausible reason for why Duncan stayed on the super evil villain path xD
          (still wouldn’t excuse his actions)

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I just whipped that up to see if I could get Alex to fall off his chair… LOL.

            And, you are so right. NOTHING excuses someone for giving my Kyle a hurtful boo boo on his heart. Bad bad Duncan! I still think he needs to go spend some intimate time with Daddy Laampros… but we’ll see. 🙂

          • Or you risk that your small suggestions give Alex some ideas for the most cracked up little story that will have YOU fall of your chair… in amusement or in horror xD

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Ha. Well, in the Patreon library anything is possible… lol BRING IT! Heeeeeeeee….

  • Zintlions

    Whelp, my morning has been made. XD

  • Archidel

    And that marks Fluke’s second “Wait, what?” moment in a row. I think it’s fair to say that the poor boy is already profoundly befuddled and confounded by the way this round of ToD turned out. If Amanda can get one more “Wait, what?” out of him they’re probably going to have to scrape his brains of the ceiling in the aftermath of his mind being thoroughly blown.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      I particularly like the fact that for this second ‘What?’ he drops out of the usual all-caps comic-book lettering into a lower-case font. Almost as if he’s gasping for breath.

      • Archidel

        I agree there’s an interesting distinction between the “What?” in the previous chapter and the one in this one.

        The previous “What?” was actually in a larger font size AND bold AND in italics, putting a lot of emphasis on it as an exclamation of surprise. The one in this chapter in contrast is smaller and lower case, like Fluke just barely manages to squeak it in, barely believing what he’s hearing.

        It really is quite brilliant how Alex managed to make two consecutive iterations of the exact same words, with the same punctuation, convey two very different reactions through the use of such fairly minor stylistic differences.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Love that, too!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      HA! So true. (However, that pretty much describes me for most of the months between by thirteenth and fourteenth birthday) Heh.

      • Archidel

        Ok, it’s probably none of my business, but if you’re going to post a comment like that here, it really does start me wondering; what in the world happened between your thirteenth and fourteenth birthday?

        • Klaus

          As long as you don’t ask Spooky the same question.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            HA… too true.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          I just meant terminally clueless … however all the salacious stuff was true too. LOL.

          • Archidel

            Tssch, and here I was hoping for details. 😛

          • Chris Dangerfield

            🙂 … I’m an open book, I YAM!

  • Perverzak

    I smell fangirl 😀

    • Chris Dangerfield

      (politely curious) What does a fangirl smell like? Joy Parfum by Jean Patou? or some home creation of citrus and sandalwood? (Actually I have no idea if that’s good or not?). You just made me curious. 🙂

      • Punkpoemprose

        Depends on the fangirl. Yaoi fangirls often smell of notes of fresh ground pepper, blueberries, warm woods and molten sugar. Hard core Yuri fangirls almost always smell like cherries, an unfortunate side effect of the Great Katy Perry Incident of ’08. Most others smell like a fresh baked vanilla cupcake, often with hints of other much less prominent scents.
        Here we smell Amanda letting off a pepper shaker scent with hints of blue berry syrup.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Excellent. Thank you.

        • Columbine

          This one mostly smells of mammal.

  • Pikinanou

    You know, I would totally see this scene in a comedy show *insert canned laugh here* 😛

  • J.K. Hogan

    Bahahaha!! Gordon: say what now?

  • That’s a great reaction from Fluke!

  • Paul D’Arbonne

    Oh, clever girl. Nice turn around with the question.

  • Stubbylegs

    Someone needs to just give poor Paul the CliffsNotes version of the entire romantic context of this scene. He is hopelessly behind the times!

  • Shinashi

    Fujoshi Commando~

  • Oh please I want to know! But I’m naughty… I want to know what she feels about the things she’s imagining, not just what exactly she’s imagining 😉

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Okay Alex and Julie, you really did it with this page. The last page was just a perfect setup for this one… but this one is outta the park.

    Alex, I feel like, many moons ago when you wrote this script, you must have thought… hmmmmmmm… what would be the perfect page on Amanda to make ChrisD. happy? And this was it. She is too awesome for words, so I shall say no more (LIE). I love that this calm fearless and yet somehow so kind, delivery is just so HER. It fits her so well. Honest. Aware (more than anyone else, except perhaps Spooky) of the curse. So very calm and completely unconcerned about the silliness of sex and attraction. Someone’s mother (coughColonelcough) taught her girl right.

    And WHAT THE HECK is Spooky wearing? Some sort of super powered magical Axe Body Spray? I swear that boy must smell something hella-good, because everyone of every sex is just about ready to ship off to somewhere exotic with him and climb up in his business. Damn, but our Spookster has the mojo. LOL.

    Panel #1: This is a stunning panel. It’s size and the lateral layout. The subject matter is wonderful and sweet and sexy all at once. Amanda and her dialog over-laid on her memory of a wonderful moment. I like how contemplative her present day expression is as she relives a special moment. I love their body positions in the memory. Amanda on Top and yet Spooky looking completely at ease and both looking oh so sexy. I love the tossed clothing and his Raymond Chandler room. So great. They are an adorbs couple.

    Oh and it’s good to know there ARE somethings that Spooky takes his cap off for. Ha.

    Now, that said, I’m quoting @dokidokibaka:disqus great song link, snagged from below:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Cq8mK1vBRA

    …and saying that, as much as I like this panel, in relation to Spooky and Kyle… “I DON’T CARE… I SHIP IT!” HA!

    Panel #2: I love Amanda’s little Mona Lisa expression here. That calm almost smile. The answer is so perfectly Spooky too. “Of course not…”

    Panel #3: I love the camera work in the last panel and this one. The reversal, but so nicely done that we have no sense of confusion about where we are. Brava/o. I also think Amanda speech here is perfect. It is a variant on the classic friend speech (not risking the friendship until the time is right), but unlike the “putting off” of someone, this feels deeply sincere. As much as I have fun ‘shipping’ Kyle and Spooky. There is something very right about these two and this feels like what I’d imagine as Amanda’s deeply felt emotion. When the time is right… we’ll talk… because we want to. She is so very awesome. Living proof that CONFIDENCE IS SEXY!

    I do just have to say, I also sort of feel that of anyone (well maybe excepting Spooky because he came before the group) I can imagine adult Amanda finding love outside the group. I have no clue with whom, but she has that Adult feel about her. Even with Julie’s slightly younger looking style, her dignity gives a feeling of age and maturity. It’s very nicely done.

    Panel #4: I love the way Amanda never looses track of what the original question is. Damn she’s good. I’d get half way through this page and sex memories and end up saying, “Erm… what was I talking about?” AND BAM… CURSE… I’D BE DEAD. She is right back into it. I love the careful way she phrases the Gordon line (such the Commander) and then how honest she is about how young the rest are. It’s just the kind of line that it’s unfortunate she’ll forget because you couldn’t look back on it and think of a better way to say this. SHE DESERVES TO REMEMBER HOW WELL SHE DELIVERS THIS SPEECH… DAMN IT! 🙂

    Panel #5: Okay, am I a nutty gay man (totally rhetorical) or is Amanda just stunning in this panel. So beautiful. I love the slightly shy way she closes her eyes, as if she’s giving herself and the others just a smidgeon of privacy. So kind.

    And the way she’s tucking her hair behind her ear (or initiating a Vulcan mind-meld) either way, she’s adorbs. The line is great. Mostly for showing us that thoughts of sex in any configuration get us all sometimes. “… SOMETIMES… Once in a great while…” I love that it’s not like she’s stuck on it, but she’s not afraid to be honest that it’s flown through her head and she’s fine with that. And if we assume it’s Paul that she’s talking about… then I have to say… what healthy person wouldn’t look at Paul’s bod and imagine him with SOMEONE! He’s a hottie and so is Spooky.

    Panel #6: Most adorbs confused boy-face ever. Totally clueless and it makes you want to hug him. Alex you did GREAT with the tiny lettering in this panel in contrast to the previous page. It just made the whole thing so sweet.

    Thank you again friends, for moving this fun bonus comic another step ahead and even when modeled after all the silliness of sex inherent in the TRUTH OR DARE idea… you insert a really lovely moment of emotion. I agree with the person who posted below that it really does break my heart that they wont remember this. Lovely work. Now please excuse me, I have to start camping for the next page… HA.

    • Thank you for another lovely play-by-play, Chris. This one was especially fun for me to read. (And Commander is a lot of fun for me to write, so I’m glad you like her. 😉 )

    • You’re on Canon Ground, I’m up in Crack Ship Space…

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA! It’s true, everything I know about shipping I learned from this group and you… 🙂

        • ^_^ It is our job to corrupt teach others about the ins and outs of joining a fandom. ^_^

          • Chris Dangerfield

            HA.

          • How fast you acclimate to the depths will say a lot. ^_^

    • fujoshifanatic

      Chris, you are such a master at these play-by-plays…they are as fun to read as the pages themselves. I kept coming back for this, and now you have completed my full enjoyment of the page. Thanks! 😀

      • Chris Dangerfield

        You are so kind, but these pages create the fun and I get to relive it… lucky me… lucky us. 🙂

  • Jason Moon

    Spooky seems to be in a position of great control and influence in this scenario. While it may look like some of the revelations may compromise him, I suspect that he’s using this situation to reveal things that he’s wanted to talk about for a while.

  • Johndar

    I really like Spooky and Amanda as a couple.

  • Danny

    Thank you for making me smile and laugh on an awful day. This page is pretty great. I too hope to see what the lovely Commander means when she “thinks about Paul with Spooky”.

    On a side note, I wonder if Paul works out so much because his power is one of the most subtle ones? Everyone else’s powers are rather flashy, but I imagine it would have been difficult to diagnose his ability as an actual power and not just as a series of coincidences.

    • Ah, cool. Giving someone a laugh when they’ve had a rough day is a big reason I write what I write, so I’m glad I could do that for you. 🙂

      And you’re right that Paul’s powers play into his choice to hit the gym. Due to the nature of his powers, Fluke trains hard for HTH combat and likes to keep in peak physical shape.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Since we have a few hours before the next page is up… I wanted to share…

    I just listened to a fascinating interview with Political Journalist, Cokie Roberts, talking about her new book CAPITAL DAMES…

    http://www.amazon.com/Capital-Dames-Civil-Washington-1848-1868/dp/0062002767/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431637625&sr=8-1&keywords=capital+dames

    I’m going to read it. I’ve been a fan of Roberts for years. Wise and witty and does her homework. We all know about how women’s entire relationship to the workforce changed due to World War II, but Roberts has gone back and researched how the very same thing happened during the American Civil War. How women became an essential part of every aspect of US government, when prior there had been almost no women on Capital Hill at all.

    Roberts also has a number of other great books on how women changed US government over the years. She’s very funny and not afraid to look at every side of a situation.

    One of her best stories in the interview was about a number of infamous Madams of “Bawdy Houses” who in the course of supporting the Civil War efforts went from being infamous to being the most highly regarding of society women and philanthropists. It’s pretty great stuff.

    — DA PUBLISHER’S BLURB —

    “In this engrossing and informative companion to her New York Times bestsellers Founding Mothers and Ladies of Liberty, Cokie Roberts marks the sesquicentennial of the Civil War by offering a riveting look at Washington, D.C. and the experiences, influence, and contributions of its women during this momentous period of American history.

    With the outbreak of the Civil War, the small, social Southern town of Washington, D.C. found itself caught between warring sides in a four-year battle that would determine the future of the United States.”

            I though I spoke to you about saying smart complicated things before 3:00 in the afternoon… 🙂

  • Chris Dangerfield

    So NOW it is page day… (a few less hours anyway) and instead of one those cool TYP dreams you all seem to get… I wake up from a dream of Alex waking up late to the sound of the alarm, in a panic, as he realizes he forgot to write today’s page. (he sorta frantically grabbed for the notebook on the nightstand and then fell outta bed, just as the phone rang with a call from Julie)

    Then I woke up…

    • Gosh, I knew I had forgot to do something! Thanks!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        YUP! Me and Amanda got that psychic thing going on… I knew it! HA!

    Oh and BTW… Nom Nom Nom ALERT Patreon is $82 away from sexy Marccus — Tsunami… (i’m going to start holding my breath as of now!)

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Oh and don’t miss tonights camp… The Admiral is bringing delicious baked good for everyone! (true) 🙂

    • I will be if you would finish the baking. 😛

      • Chris Dangerfield

        You wouldn’t say that if you’d tasted my baking! Contrary to popular belief I’m NOT that mean.

      Dinner will be ready in about an hour.

    Hahahaha nice!

  • Jamie

    oh my gosh, I actually forgot about this comic for like two years! It took me a few hours, but i caught up, finally. now i wait.

    • Welcome back, Jamie! 🙂

      • Jamie

        Thanks! 😀 I can’t beleive I actually forgot it existed. I’m glad I decided to scroll through Patreon’s home page or I would have never rediscover this amazing comic.

    • Now that would have been an exciting ride! Welcome back after a break! ^___^

      • Jamie

        It was pretty excIting. Took me three hours to catch up

    • Chris Dangerfield

      This is like one of those great amnesia stories where you wake up in Tokyo, slightly hungover, and not remember your name or anything… then you have two years of Jason Bourne type ninja adventures and finally remember about TYP and your life comes rushing back. AWESOME.

      Now someone write THAT story please. 🙂 (oh and welcome back!)

      • Jamie

        Haha, it’s true! I say the Patron page and suddenly all of these memories of staying up late and anticipating new pages came rushing back and I was like, “Whoew! What happened in my life that made me forget all THIS!?”

        Thanks, man, it’s good to be back.

    • Welcome home, Jamie! Cop a squat, there is plenty of room at the campfire.

      • Jamie

        It’s great to be home. *sheds a single tear*

  • Camp time! Going to write while chatting (and go grab some food) but how is everyone doing tonight once you get here?

    • I’m awake! This is a good thing, sort of? Yes, camp night! Sorry, brain is booting. I think I have graham crackers here if someone has marshmallows and chocolate.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Starr has arrived. The party may now begin. 🙂

      • No, now that you have arrived Chris the party can start! 😉

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Work type writing or hobby type writing?
      Oh, and here, slow-cooked-in-a-firepit camel. Very tender. I’m very happy with the way it turned out.

      • Hobby-type writing. Work type writing is over with until Monday! (YAY!) Also getting junk food…

    • davefragments

      I’m starting a new story. Horror, I hope. Magic for sure.

      • Ooh always exciting! Weekend writing time is always so great!

        • davefragments

          I have to invent characters and their names. That can get nuts.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I KNOW I want that link. D-Frag gives good scare!

        • davefragments

          I don’t guarantee that. Sometimes, I have a sweet side and write a “Everyone lives happily ever after” ending.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Still want it.

    • *glomp* Starr! I found a 81 chapter, million + words HP fanfic. I have been reading it for 2-3 days and I am only on Chapter 24. Harry was raised in a loving environment by Snape, was bitten by Fenrir the night his parents died at Malfoy Manor because Snape needed Narcissa’s help with baby things, Harry and Clayton (both 15 yr old werewolves) would give competition to the Marauders and Fred & George (which is kinda of bad if they team up when H & C attend Hogwarts….there may not be a school left), Harry is also an animagus, Dumbledore has more than one screw loose and isn’t a good guy despite what he thinks of himself, Sirius is batsh*t crazy, Draco is good, Narcissa is good, Draco has a newborn brother and is trying save him and his mother, Neville died trying to protect the Stone, Ginny died in the Chamber of Secrets, Tom has the Basilisk instead of Nagini, Tom is now looking for ways to stay eternally young, Bella is just as insane, Tom took over Durmstrang….

      I just want Harry to be at Hogwarts already, he might not be safe from Dumbledore but he will be slightly safe from Tom and his DEs and the rival werewolves that are mostly a group of psychopaths.

      • Haha (please don’t link that… I need to spend time writing…) XD Always so great to find a LONG HUGE fic you have never read before or a series and have to spend a LONG time reading it.

        Happened a while ago for me with two huge Gundam Wing fan fiction arcs that took about two weeks of and on to read, and still go back on occasion to re-read favourite parts 😉

        • OH I forgot to mention that Fenrir is Harry’s Alpha (Alpha of the pack) and his Dominant. *giggles* Can you imagine a snarky/pranky Harry being a true submissive? *giggles* Harry pretty much has him wrapped around his finger…except when Harry does his whole “magnet for trouble” thing.

          • Chris Dangerfield
          • The pack finds it entertaining when those two go head to head over issues. Harry is the only one ballsy enough to call Fenrir “Alpha Bossy Boots” and other assorted nicknames to his face. He is also the only one who would be able to get away with it.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Isn’t that the truth?

      • davefragments

        Oh good heavens what a fan fic.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Heavens?

          • davefragments

            Let’s just leave it at that. Some things I never like to type out descriptively or say out loud.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Crack ship space indeed!!!! 🙂

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Is it complete or still a WiP?

        • Ongoing.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            *Wow*…

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Links when complete please… 🙂

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I’m doing pretty well – did a bunch of weeding outside today, but there’s still a lot yet to go. How are you, Starr?

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Stick is IN DA HOUSE!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          XD Hiya!

  • Jamie

    I’m gonna sketch some drawings and eat a banana split while I camp

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Oh …. Nooooom nom nom …. banana split. That was just MEAN! WANT!!!

      • Jamie

        Sorry. D: I ate it all. I would have shared!

        • Chris Dangerfield

          (chris raises incredulous eyebrow)

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Nice! What are you drawing?

      • Jamie

        Just some ideas I have for fan art. A variety of my favorite youtubers, cartoons and web comics.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Sounds awesome!

          • Jamie

            Yeah, I just got really motivated to draw suddenly. Might as well pump out the sketches while I can

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I wish you the best of luck. 🙂

          • Jamie

            thanks!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            ENVY… thy name is Chris. 🙂

          • Jamie

            nice to meet you, Chris. 🙂 my name is Jamie.

  • Xanderbowski

    Does anyone know what time the page will be up?

    • davefragments

      We don’t know.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Well not for lack of effort.THE WAY OF KNOWLEDGE IS BLOCKED!

    • Always a surprise! Could be now… or in three hours (1/2 the fun)

      • Chris Dangerfield

        YUP YUP… like the sun burning out could be a billion years or three billion… FUN FUN FUN! 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Yes, but to gain this knowledge I’d have to disembowel a cute baby goat and certain (couchAdmiralcough) members of this group don’t like it when I get all sacrificial… so I’m afraid… NOT. You’ll just have to wait with the rest of us………. Have a smore?

    • It won’t be a late update tonight. 🙂

      • Chris Dangerfield

        well or alex could just tell us… there is that…

        • Xanderbowski

          Yep, my charm didn’t quite work but at least we have some idea now when the page will be up. 😉

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Okay you get mojo points for that. 🙂

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Hi everybody!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Hiya Stick. I hope you’re well!

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hi Chris! Yes, I am. How are you doing? 🙂

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Pretty happy it’s Friday. Happy it’s page day. Happy to be watching sports in bed with the man (who’s pretending not to be interested in who I’m typing to. HA).

          • stickfigurefairytales

            What sports are you watching? NBA playoffs?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Grizzlies and Warriors…

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Who are you guys cheering for?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Honestly, I wasn’t sure… I think it was on more for energy. LOL.

    • davefragments

      Hi there.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Hi dave!

    • *poke poke* so what is going on in the world of Miles and Phoenix?

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I got a HUGE HAUL of doujinshi from my sister when we met up, so many, many things! Mostly kissing and being adorable. And sex.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          And the problem is …….. NOT!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Well, the only problem is that after paying her back for said doujinshi, I am pretty darn broke. But I still feel like it was a worthwhile investment.

          • Always a worthwhile investment. ^_^

  • davefragments

    I went to see Othello yesterday at the theater, It was good. I never saw it before. . . and also, the page is up.
