    The Old Hack

    Story Wednesday Nov 16, 2016

    Ah. This actually strengthens an old idea of mine: that it was the absence of Elliot in his world that helped to create Lord Tedd. Also, I had once before speculated on the possibility of targeting Elliot to get at Tedd. I am rather sorry to see my hypothesis confirmed in this way. :/

    Everything is up in the air again! Are Susan and Diane really sisters? Will Tedd confront Magic about his disappointment? Will PharaohRutinTutin's pyramid mortgage be foreclosed? Is mlooney's dishwasher secretly summoning Nyarlathotep? Is CritterKeeper really The Old Hack's maiden aunt? FIND OUT IN THE NEXT YEAR OF EGS! SAME EGS-HOMEPAGE, SAME EGS-FORUMS!

    Pandora just became one of Tedd's favorite people. She's a mother who's stayed by her son for centuries.

    And suddenly certain things click, like one reason I like Elliot so much. In him, I see a small reflection of my son. A story, by way of explanation: My son is 19. Lives with me now, but when he was living with his mom, there was a girl he dated towards the end of middle school. That ended when her folks moved her to another school precisely because they (being pretentious religious jackasses) didn't approve of him. High school comes along and he finds himself back in the same school as her. By this time, she's started to try to sort out identity issues and has a fairly serious girlfriend. To my son, this is no big deal; the only part that weirds him out at all is that he is the one his ex comes to for relationship advice, and being a friend he listens. I got the impression he may have been one of a very few who did that. Advance a couple of years. My son's ex is still with the same girlfriend (partly due to having my son as a good listener), but has realized that he (here's where I'm changing pronouns) is trans. Again, my son doesn't bat an eyelash; he just goes on supporting his friend. So the last panel on today's comic -- that hits home in an unexpected way. A good way.

    As for why Jerry doesn't tell them that directly? Did you see the look on Susan's face? Nanase is a dangerous warrior and Susan can summon magic weapons. If any humans can hurt an immortal who reset less than a year ago, it would be them.

    I like talking to myself. That way I always have an attentive audience no matter how inane and idiotic my rambling gets. My shrink tells me that talking to yourself, to include answering yourself, isn't a bad thing, as long as you know you are doing that. It's when you talk to yourself and you think you are talking to someone else that life gets, as he puts, "somewhere between not real good and very very bad".

    So did Sirleck leave the butler all his dead host's money? Or did Sirleck just have to get whatever host he could get right away? On the other hand, after whatever villainy Sirleck is about to commit, maybe he could jump to another host. Then everyone will think the butler did it.

    Well, I did say most boyfriends.... I bought it from the Disney World gift shop after discovering I'd forgotten to pack anything to sleep in, and it was definitely labeled as either a "sleep shirt" or "nightie," I forget which. This is the same company from which I have since purchased both shackles (from the Pirates of the Carribean ride's gift shop) and "Imperial Binders" (from the Star Wars gift shop), so they are either kinkier than they let on, or more oblivious/naïve than a megacorp has any right to be. ;-)

    Story Wednesday November 30, 2016

    This may be the most painful page of EGS that I have read in quite a while. I don't think I have seen anything even near it since the time Tedd acknowledged Mr. Verres' transphobia. It is clear that Susan has held a mental image of her father close in which she tried to preserve at least some sort of person worthy of love. It would be easier to think of him as someone who started with good intentions but stumbled into a bad mistake. Being brought face to face with the possibility that not even this much was true... yes, anger and denial are two of the first steps. Having it all intermixed with her immensely traumatic experience with the vampire back in France would not make it any better, to put it mildly. I am torn. Nanase unquestionably meant well. But I am starting to think that she would have done better to think this more carefully through. Even so, I am doing this from hindsight so I am not precisely in a position to criticise her. Her intentions are obviously good and based on the fact that not only is Diane in danger, she also deserves to know of her half-sister's existence... and that Susan deserves to know the truth as well. The problem with that is that while truth indeed has the power to set you free, it can also open old wounds and do grave harm. It is for that very reason that Ellen rejected the notion of telling Tedd what they had learned about his mother. This situation is of similar complexity and may well reopen old wounds for Susan... and possibly even make them worse.

    I do not normally comment in person but once again I feel compelled to make an exception. Whatever other issues of policy may be at hand, I am greatly concerned by the president-elect's apparent intention to disengage from old alliances across the world. NATO in particular has been of obvious importance to my homeland. Denmark is a small nation with little in the way of military power and is situated in a position of immense strategic importance to Russia. NATO has helped ensure a long peace in Europe, one which has lasted most of my lifetime with few interruptions. On such occasions where other nations have attacked the US, my homeland has every time reciprocated by placing forces, planes and naval vessels at the disposal of the US. Also, it is worth noting that the esteemed JML of this forum has served the US in Europe for a number of years and thus aided in extending this peace, for which I owe him my thanks and gratitude. No alliance lasts forever, of course. But I must confess to feeling strong pangs at the thought of NATO coming apart, not to mention considerable worry at the thought of what Putin and similar strongmen might do to take advantage of it. That other similar detentes around the globe are also in danger does nothing to reassure me, I fear.

    I dunno, the way Pandora said "memoirs from my...previous self" and Disco Wizard's "Previous self? But magic last changed...." seemed to strongly imply that it was the life just before Pandora's current one. Compare that to when Pandora was talking to Sarah about the lie, Pandora said "Some earlier version of me" which would admittedly be very vague about which past life decided to pass on the lie to the next, could have been her previous life, could have been 5 lives back. Sarah seemed to has assumed previous life as well, but I don't think Pandora would even know what point the lie started to even try to correct Sarah, I doubt Pandora was in the mood to make any expositions about it either. I feel like saying "my previous self" as opposed to "a previous self" might be a big difference in context.

    A different moral angle has been introduced to the story. Tedd has been concerned about giving everyone the ability to resist magic. What if he concentrated on giving everyone the ability to become the gender that best suits them instead? I can see f!Elliot talking about this in Tedd's basement. What would Tedd's reaction be, especially concerning the discovery of his own gender-fluidity and how the TF gun (and now his spell) facilitates what he feels?

    Things That Make You Happy

    I woke up at about two-thirty this morning to a kitten on my chest. I dunno if he got in through the door or someone let him in and put him there, but it was cute. He sat there for a bit, laid down and slept for a bit, played around chasing my fingers under the sheets, and just generally being adorable.

    The solution to reliability issues: get rid of the scriptwriters. And on the software side, you'd be amazed what percentage of code is dedicated to preventing the users from screwing things up. Software would be much easier without users.

    That, in itself, is part of the problem, I think. Why is it a "pinup poll" instead of a "Sketch poll" with pinup options? I really hope Dan knows some of us would really rather just have regular sketchbooks, instead of all these pinups which, frankly, some of them seem like they'd be better *without* the fanservice element. Maybe the pinups would win the voting anyway, but I do wish we could have a chance to find out.

    Ed Verres has plenty of faults, but he's the parent that stayed with his child. He doesn't seem the warmest man in the universe, but he does come across as no-nonsense and down to earth. I can't see him calling a marriage off because the first child was magically impaired or because his wife didn't want more, and I cannot see him kicking Noriko out unless she already wanted to go. It's not in his character. Noriko doesn't have a "character" yet. We don't know much about her except for a few hurtful things she has done. It was Norko who kept scanning Tedd for signs of magic ability not Ed Verres, and then she's the one who left. Certainly Mrs. Kitsune harbors a huge grudge against her sister for how she acted towards Tedd. Those are the dots we have to connect and they point right at Noriko as the problem, not Ed Verres.

    12 years actually. And this is how I hoped Nanase would get to it with Susan, it's how she explained it to Elliot and Edward, can't see her beating around the bush considering how determined she's been to talk to Susan about Diane. Ellen's still pretty nervous about how Susan will react, and so far we've got a stunned Susan, it could either become shocked or outraged (cus Nanase is likely going to drop the cheating father bomb next) or Susan would be like "I should have expected that the bimbo I caught him with years ago wasn't the first one." I'm still hoping that knowing that Diane was given up for adoption would get some sympathy from Susan rather that Susan despising Diane for being the product of a cheating father. What I really want to see happen, is Susan and Diane either hug or shake hands, then both immediately pull out the hand sanitizer.

    Several years ago, The Animal Planet cable channel came up with the idea of offering counterprogramming during the Super Bowl, in the form of letting a bunch of puppies loose to play in a room decorated to look like a football field. The only human to appear on-camera was a guy dressed as a referee whose job was to clean up any Oopses from the puppies. At half-time, they switched from puppies to kittens for a few minutes. I believe it was one of the highest-rated competitors for the first few years. :-D Unfortunately, someone decided to start messing with a good thing. Instead of just watching puppies play, now we get biographies and stats for the puppies, and the view jumps around from camera to camera instead of just holding still and letting us watch the damn puppies.
