    I wouldn't bet any cookies on Pandora being back yet, but both Sarah and Tedd got close to Pandora shortly before she rebooted, so maybe Dan will make her aware of what's going on, although it may not be revealed until later. Meanwhile, Sam...remember Sam? We're fourteen pages into The Secret of Sam and Sam hasn't been seen since page three. Maybe he's somewhere else this Friday night, waiting for Godot.
  3. This Day In History

    Also on December 11, four days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Adolf Hitler declared war on the United States of America. Italian dictator Benito Mussolini also declared war on the USA the same day.
  4. The Two Rodges

    I'm watching the complete series collection and I got curious about Roger Healey. No one seems to know the reason Healey is in the Army when there weren't any Army astronauts until 1976, eleven years after the show started its run and six after it ended production. And while Healey wears aviator's wings, he also wears the badges for the Army Corps of Engineers (castles on his lapels) instead of the Aviator's badge, a winged-propeller.

  7. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    There are plenty of guys who don't have a prominent larynx, and some girls who do. And man boobs aren't exactly unknown. A bigger reason for Luke not to be interested in Sam in Squirrel Prophet is that it takes place the day before Voltaire called Cheerleadra "Elliot Dunkel" at the mall. Luke's "mission" is to find Cheerleadra, and that was his primary interest in Justin before he actually met Justin in person. After finding himself attracted to Justin, an extremely masculine man, Luke would likely show even less interest in a somewhat androgynous and not particularly attractive "man" (Sam).

    Like all the other laws of physics, it's more like a polite suggestion in the Moperverse. Just ask Mr. Bluel or Dr. Physics Professor.
  9. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    Yes, once Sam gets used to using his powers. However, this is El Goonish Shive, so of course it wouldn't be that simple. If you haven't read it yet, you might check out Boku no Futatsu no Tsubasa for some examples of possible complications along the same line.
  10. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    Oh, I can think of a few problems. Given what Dan has showed us of Sam, how many people know he's physically a girl? Sam told Sarah he felt more like himself at Salty Crackers than anywhere else, which seems to be a pretty good indication it's the only place he's sure no one knows he's really physically female. And Sam took off his fake beard before he got home, wherever home is, which probably indicates despite being twenty Sam still lives at home, or has housemates who know him as her. In fact, since Sam is supposed to be a girl, his roommate(s) would probably be female.
  11. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    Interesting idea, but it depends on Luke being able to sense Sam is trans. Given that he didn't pick up on Justin being gay, that kind of seems out of Luke's ballpark. However, I have a thought: What if Sam is marked? Pandora was still in full Marker Mode at Salty Crackers during Squirrel Prophet. It might be even more likely if Pandora marked Sam after Luke did use his spell on Sam and found nothing. Why? Because it would be mischievous, of course. Luke wouldn't even have to be involved now for the secret to come out. All that would be needed for circumstances where Sam really, really wants to change his physical gender to whatever is appropriate to the situation.
  12. Story Friday December 07, 2018

    Why did Dan set up another card tournament at Salty Crackers when Sam isn't going to show up? Doesn't seem likely that there will be any progress towards the discovery of Sam's secret at the card tournament. As long as the discovery of Elliot transforming by Ashley has been raised, maybe Sam will catch Elliot transforming? Not necessarily into Cheerleadra; Ashley really likes "Rose Elliot".

    If Ellen shows up tonight, they could be squirrel-girls.
  14. http://www.egscomics.com/ Luke seems scared of Sarah, and Sam isn't showing up.
  15. Story Monday, December 3, 2018

    Yet another thought emerged after about six hours of sleep less robocalls and getting up to pee. Sam may have bailed on the date because of some family commitment where he has to be a girl, or maybe someone he can't turn down insisting on coming along to Salty Crackers.
  16. Story Monday, December 3, 2018

    I just spent about 24 hours getting the sound back on my laptop. Somehow after all that I'm still awake and having an actual thought: Sarah is an artist. She could become a goddess at Salty Crackers by doing custom character designs. And there could be more. We haven't seen Catalina at Salty Crackers since last (Moperville) spring (in Hammerchlorians). She'd come with Rhoda, of course.
  17. http://www.egscomics.com/ Nice move, Justin.
  18. http://www.egscomics.com/ I put this up over two hours ago and still no responses. So I'll put something in this one. I wonder how long it will take Luke to notice that Sarah has a magical aura that she didn't have two weeks ago. Possibly Luke may refrain from looking at auras tonight after what Grace said to him.

    Yes, it's been seven years in our time and around nine months in Moperville since Melissa was last seen (April 15 of the previous year according to the Shivepedia timeline.), and I have no idea whether or not Dan ever intends to bring back Melissa. But if he wants to, this would be an interesting time and place to do it.
  20. Story, Wednesday, November 28, 2018

    Yes, they did work together, but inside the dojo, which they didn't enter until after the only civilian that saw the fire guy inside the dojo ran out past them. On the other hand, Noah and Cheerleadra ware seen with the dragon out in the open, and there were enough witnesses to attract Carol Brown to the scene in time to get kissed by Heidi on the air.
  21. Story, Wednesday, November 28, 2018

    Actually there is a time when Grace and Cheerleadra were flying together: When they arrived just after not-Tengu crashed back in Family Tree, which was around a month ago in Moperville time. Luke also thinks Grace might be the "shadow guy" who is really Noah, yet another flyer. So it's very plausible that Luke totally believes Grace is Cheerleadra's sidekick at this point. There are so many things that could complicate the situation here at Salty Crackers. Here are a few possibilities: Rich and Larry again--practically mandatory. Melissa decides to show up to see Justin--and brings along Noah, which means that Luke could figure out Noah is really the Shadow Guy. That guy who Noah was talking to over his phone comes over, or maybe he's already there. Want to bet he's not marked? (Or, for that matter, he's a she?) Lucy and Diane show up. Lucy's a credible fan of this fantasy card game, and Diane would probably like to make a griffin-based deck. Tedd again. And, of course, Pandora. The greater the numbers of her family showing up, the more credible.
  22. Story, Wednesday, November 28, 2018

    I clip down my soul patch once in awhile, but mostly I just trim my mustache. I've let the rest of my beard grow out because, unlike what head hair I have, It's turned gray or white, and I don't have to show ID to any bus drivers to get the senior fare. I think the reason Dan gave Luke a soul patch is because there's another regular at Salty Crackers who had glasses, hair and a chin beard like Luke's but in different colors. And since we're in grayscale now, it would be harder to tell them apart.
  23. Story, Friday Nov 23, 2018

    All true, as far as it goes. However, much as I like the basketball game scenario, the one that Dan can set up with the least work is probably one involving MSHS. I'm really hoping Dan goes with basketball, though, because cheerleaders.
  24. Story, Friday Nov 23, 2018

    Remember how Grace left that note for Adrian way back in Death Sentence? Grace might have a class with Sam, or leave a note in Sam's locker.
  25. Story, Friday Nov 23, 2018

    Oh, I'm sure Grace will have no problem finding a way to talk to Sam privately at Salty Crackers. Personally, I think there's even more potential for disaster in Grace recognizing Sam when Samantha is in her "normal" guise as a girl.
