    They can compel you to compete, but to what degree can they compel you to give your maximum effort towards winning the competition? Conscripts very often "work to rule", doing the minimum that is mandated. How does that translate to punishing a conscripted athlete for taking fourth place instead of first or second in a competition with way more than four competitors?

    The obvious problem with this is that they are identical, NOT mirrored. Also, Nanase already failed to mirror Sarah's blushing. ... waaait, are those ideas even really related to mirror?

    Oh. I though you talked about awakening Justin. Yes. Usually. When she didn't forget. She was not exactly stable. On one hand she was almost omniscient, on the other she kept losing track of one thing due to focusing on another too much. And it was difficult for her.
  6. This Day In History

    17 January 38 BC – Octavian divorces his wife Scribonia and marries Livia Drusilla, ending the fragile peace between the Second Triumvirate and Sextus Pompey. Divorce is so often uncivil. But rarely does it lead to actual civil war. 1377 – Pope Gregory XI moves the Papacy back to Rome from Avignon. It is rather difficult to be the Bishop of Rome when you are over four hundred miles from the Vatican. 1706 – Birth of Benjamin Franklin, American publisher, inventor, and politician. In case you haven't heard of him, the man invented the Lightning Rod, Bifocals, and the United States of America. All while playing with kites in thunderstorms. 1885 – A British force defeats a large Dervish army at the Battle of Abu Klea. The Dervish were defeated? That will send Sudan whirling. 1893 – Lorrin A. Thurston, along with the Citizens' Committee of Public Safety, led the Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the government of Queen Liliʻuokalani. The members of The Citizen's Committee were mostly non-native Hawaiians of American or European descent who were all also members of a group known as the Annexation Club. I wonder if they had some sort of political agenda beyond public safety? 1929 – Popeye the Sailor Man, a cartoon character created by E. C. Segar, first appears in the Thimble Theatre comic strip. Children finally have a reason to finnich their spinach. 1961 – U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower delivers a televised farewell address to the nation three days before leaving office, in which he warns against the accumulation of power by the "military–industrial complex" as well as the dangers of massive spending, especially deficit spending. Americans of every political alignment acknowledge the warning, and then increase the military-industrial complex through massive deficit spending.

    "I'll Be Your Mirror" written by Lou Reed. ©1966, 1994 Oakfield Avenue Music Ltd. From the album The Velvet Underground and Nico. So... is Nanase Craft confessing her feelings for Sarah; is the dungeon still messing with her mind; or is she just trolling? As Hanma would say, "Nobody knoooooows...!"

    Fanfic writers could certainly fill in any gaps for us.

    *sigh* Sarah... "I intend to be deliberately unclear about how much time passes between this comic and the next." Uh oh. Something also feels jarring, and it is not about the ideas of Sarah.
  11. NP Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Nanase's dialogue in the first panel has made a song -- fortunately, one I like -- play in my head ("earworm" is the associated trope). Whether that was Dan's intent or not, I must now work on another slay. Excuse me.
  12. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    I was referring to Pandora marking Sam while she was in the process of reconciling. My intention was to point out there'd be entirely different reasons that Pandora might have marked Sam depending of if it was before or after Adrian reminded her about Blaike. Before that point, yeah Pandora liked Sarah, and she considered Tedd and Grace practically family, but did she truly care about their well being? She might have thought her vow would keep her in line with Sarah but there's the matter that she thought she was helping Tedd and Adrian, when in fact she almost ruined things. When she last visited Sarah and Tedd, she genuinely cared.

  15. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    She was NOT trying to discredit Grace's "prophetic dreams". When she realizes Grace has any, she went directly into her dreams to catch who is giving her the dreams. When she awakened Justin, she still didn't know about those dreams. Also, it was well before she started reconciling. In fact, it was likely before the tournament. And her motivation for awakening him STILL included boredom, but more likely it was another step in her plan to make magic more open. She likely planned to awaken ALL people she marked when it would be possible, although she missed Rhoda. Actually, it's possible she checked Justin (and others?) and awakened him BECAUSE Rhoda awakened on her own. Or, maybe she awakened Justin because unlike others, if JUSTIN awakened imperfectly, it would alert Edward to what she was doing?
  16. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    I think Sam knows the importance of secrets though since he''s had his own and is only telling Grace because Grace has already figured it out herself and has told Sam enough to get him to trust her. Sam tells Sarah that he's trans and been given a magic mark by Pandora and Sarah's likely going to tell Sam that she was as well. If this happen before Pandora knew about the possible reset, we could probably think that she was trying to discredit Grace's "prophetic dreams" like how she awakened Justin so that no one would see the mark. Considering this happened when she was in the process of reconciling things, she would not do this for shits and giggles.
  17. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Tedd likely told Sarah and Grace about Pandora visiting him as well, which is strongly implied by Tedd's similar sudden sadness at the last card tournament. I think if Sam were to ask Grace if she knew who Pandora is, Grace's best response might be "Sarah could probably explain it better the I." "About", definitely. Not sure how detailed he was, but it's possible he was pretty verbose ... Unfortunately, mentioning that Sarah knows Pandora is very close to admitting Sarah was marked by Pandora. Which might be dangerous given what spell she was marked with. If not for that, I would agree ... If this was something she did for Sarah, I think there's a good change she'll remember. Yeah. "I also marked your date, what was his name?" but what are the chances that will happen, or would it just become too awkward between the two that they end up drifting apart without ever knowing. If anyone could be able to get Sam and Sarah to be open with each other, it's Grace. Remember that Sarah has quick and tempting method to verify Sam's gender - WAIT. Damn. Is it possible Pandora marked Sam to allow him to hide his issue from Sarah? Hmmm ... Pandora was almost omniscient. She KNEW what would be the chance with OR without Grace getting involved, unless she deliberately choose to not know. She might even cause something small and insignificant which would raise chance for good outcome. How sure are we that Sam meeting Grace at mall was truly random? That's what I figure, Sarah was getting ready for bed when Pandora visited her, so assuming she was going to bed at a time most high school students are expected to by their parents, that'd be around 10pm-ish Thursday night. Pandora visited Tedd early Friday morning so after midnight, that gives Pandora at least 2 hours to do other things. Not only that, but she told Sarah she has to go. Did she originally planned to talk to Tedd sooner, but was delayed by something? Or, like, maybe Sarah was going to bed later. She's 18 and likes to sleep longer on weekends. It's possible her parents gave up on making her go to sleep around 10pm.

    He had control over whether or not Tedd could work on it, he could have told William and Gillian no, either as a parent because Tedd was a minor, or as an FBI agent. There would be problems if they went against Edward's authority. I think it says a lot that Edward expected Tedd to misuse the TFG, yet it was outweighed by the hope that it would bring Tedd out of the depression he'd been in since his mother left. That's true, but it's not in conflict with what I was saying. As a parent, he allowed Tedd to work on it, and as a DGB agent, he allowed William and Gillian to lend him the CMD. But saying he gave Tedd CMD would mean he confiscated it and gave to Tedd, which is NOT what happened ... although he probably COULD do it that way ...
  21. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    After next tournament Sam will visit: George: "So, Justin, Sam is member of your secret club now?" Justin: "What? No. You mean because he's dating Sarah?" Grace: "... sort of yes actually." Or, like, Pandora leaving a parting gift for her friend Sarah. Actually, plenty of second-hand information from Sarah. Sarah told Grace and Tedd basically everything from her first two meetings with Pandora. Especially considering Pandora is dead now and may not remember him. She may just expect that Sam will eventually tell Sarah even without Grace getting involved. She MIGHT marked him between Sarah and Tedd, assuming Sam was going to sleep early.

    Good save. Bad idea to forget any woman's birthday, especially a woman with dragon magic.

    Valentine's day? Ellen's "Birthday" would be coming up this Friday in comic.
  24. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Sam says he found the note from Pandora when he woke up "two Fridays ago". Working back from current story time, Monday evening, in this comic: Saturday, two days ago: Sam ran away when he spotted Grace at the mall. One Friday ago (three days ago): Sam avoided showing up at Salty Crackers. Two Fridays ago: Found the note first thing in the morning. Went on the not-date with Sarah that evening, possibly transformed. Also that evening, magic changed. Three Fridays ago: Sam met Sarah. The earliest date for this would have been January 10th since the events in Identity took at least a week of school to play out and occur after the end of the Christmas-New Years break. So one Friday ago it had to be at least January 24th and it must be at least January 27th in this comic. I hope Dan doesn't forget Valentine's day; it might not be more than a few years away in our time.
  25. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    The partial amputation has finally healed enough so that I can go back to wearing a compression stocking on my left foot. That's good, because I've been forgetting to put them on until much too late in the day lately, resulting in both ankles swelling up and hurting. Very oww.
  26. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Grace wouldn't be lying that when Sam suggested Tedd use the name "Tess" that Tedd didn't know what it meant to be trans or genderfluid, and I don't think Tedd would be mad not only if he was told that Sam was the reason Grace learned more about being transgender and genderfluid which had a very positive effect on Tedd, but also that Pandora had given Sam a similar mark around the time that she had talked to him. I kinda wonder though, Pandora could have left the note anonymously like she did with Rhoda, this could be a clue that she marked Sam because of his involvement with Sarah and that she hoped that Sarah would find out, I guess Pandora could have just told Sam in the note that he should talk to Sarah about it but maybe that would have scared him off. Maybe instead,Pandora expected Grace to get involved and hoped she could get Sam to open up to Sarah because Grace tends to have ways of getting people to open up with each other, like Sarah and Ellen in MV5 for example.
  27. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Hmm, tricky situation for Grace if she doesn't want to go telling other peoples' secrets. Maybe just tell him to talk to Sarah about it, but not say why, and let Sarah decide whether to tell Sam she's got a mark too. As for Tedd, asking if she can tell a friend with a similar ability about Sam so they can meet, could backfire given how Sam was observant enough to suggest the name Tess to Tedd, and he would likely make the connection himself just from that. If they do talk, what will Tedd tell Sam about how long they've been able to transform and how long they've had a magic mark? It would be very easy to let slip that the two are not the same, opening up a whole new can of question-worms.
