    But the best kind of Yamato is a Yamato nadeshiko.

    I think so too, but until recently, Tedd needed gadgetry to transform. Elliot can look like any female human, but his only male forms are himself and himself as a cat-person. Ellen has only copied females (which might be why she couldn't copy not-Tengu.) This is why I rate Grace as the most versatile shapeshifter.

    Maybe to encourage Ashley to accept Grace's shapechanging? Five of the Main Eight now have ways of taking the forms of other people in various ways: Tedd (to Grace and, potentially, the other six); Elliot (can create new forms more or less on the fly); Ellen (copy spell); Sarah, who at minimum has a watch that allows her to take Tedd's form; and Grace, probably the most versatile shapechanger. Speaking of cats, does Grace still have that catnip plant she got at her last birthday? Or has Jeremy eaten it all? If so, I hope Tedd has stocked up on yarn.

    But make sure there are no dogs around!

    Plus they can finally teach Ashley to speak other languages, such as French or Uryumoco.

    Serious discussion of Superman goes back at least to 1971, when Larry Niven published an essay called "Man of Steel, Woman of Tissue Paper". I haven't read a Superman comic for a long while, but I do remember that in at least one Superman didn't have bullets, etc, bounce off his body or some invisible force field, but phased out so that they passed through him. Sound familiar? Dan has given Immortals the same power. I think I remember the Mythbusters episode where they proved that the CGI underwater machine gun bullets in Saving Private Ryan were B.S. One of the standard techniques in firearm forensics is firing into a quite-reasonably-sized tub of water in order to recover bullets that aren't distorted from impact. You can get projectiles to move underwater for longer distances--really big projectiles. The 18.1 inch monsters the Yamato fired were designed to do exactly that, hopefully converting a near miss into a penetrating hit under the armor belts of other battleships, and this did happen on rare occasions with smaller cannon shells and shot. Actually counting on this turned out to be a genuinely amazing crackpot theory that failed horribly. However, you can build rockets that will have much longer ranges underwater; the Russians build rocket torpedoes designed to catch up with modern nuclear submarines, which are usually faster than surface ships and most conventional torpedoes.

    Reminding myself that Akiko has seen Rhoda transform (but didn't seem to know that Rhoda knew Nanase) makes me wonder about Akiko going to the party. What's my excuse for that? Well, it could be simply that Nanase has to sit Akiko tonight. It could also be that Mama Kitsune knows that with Nanase bringing Akiko along, there won't be any R-rated things going on at the party. I also forgot a really obvious surprise guest: The Demonic Duck. It's been way too long since the Duck of Distraction has appeared in a canon comic.

    Grace at least suspects that Catalina and Grace have magic from her special dreams. And given Grace's extraordinary skills in observing physical features and dimensions, it seems plausible that Grace suspects by now that Rhoda has been either been using some type of transformation magic or is spending a lot of money on hair extensions and padded bras. And don't forget that Nanase's sister actually saw Rhoda transform before her eyes. Nothing seems to have come of that yet...

    That is, of course canon, but I still wonder about that. In the modern world, knowing where some one has their money isn't the same as having access to it. Assuming, of course, it's not a big pile of cash and/or gold and silver. That "little" detail evaded me somehow. But it inspires a brand-new, maybe not-so-crackpot plot theory. Elliot and Ellen's dad is supposed to be an accountant. Well, if he works for the FBI, it follows that he knows forensic accounting. In other words, how to follow money. Mr. Dunkel might just follow Sirleck's ill-gotten gains to Magus. I doubt Magus has much expertise in money-laundering or how easy it is to trace credit-card transactions. Not much application for dragon-fighting.

    Susan did reveal that Little Nase had disappeared in http://egscomics.com/egsnp/2014-10-27. So Susan did re-summon Little Nase, probably so Nanase could feel a fairy in her own hands. It isn't shown, but since Tedd was right there, Tedd (finally) saw Susan use her magic for something other than summoning hammers. YOU WON THE ARGUMENT!! Mostly...
  12. Story Wednesday, July 10, 2019

    No, Tedd observed Susan controlling Lil Nase once comic before and then shared his observation. You're one comic off; the actual summoning of the Susan doll by Nanase is in the first panel here. Little Nase hasn't been seen since this comic with the Tedd doll, but there isn't any indication that Susan re-summoned Little Nase at any time between. I have to take care of something that will take four or five hours or so, so I won't be able to respond to any further comments for awhile.

    Shoulda thought of them. That would bring our theoretical attendance up to 33. Maybe Magus might even show up. He needs to eat and sleep now, and I don't know how he managed to get a motel room and pay for all that pizza. Who else does he know on Moperville-Earth who might help him?
  14. Story Wednesday, July 10, 2019

    As I said earlier, Susan never actually summoned a fairy doll in Playing With Dolls where we could see it. The only one of her fairy dolls who was active at Tedd's was Little Nase. The others were all summons by Nanase, who became dolls when Nanase took back her consciousness.
  15. Story Wednesday, July 10, 2019

    No, Tedd saw Nanase make fairy dolls in Playing With Dolls.
