    And of course he gives every new character a great name like Some Guy, and right away. Seriously, Sybil is Arthur's daughter in my headcanon until Dan says otherwise, and I don't think I'm alone. And Tedd was going to take the TFG to school to zap Tony. And once Tedd explained that the sex change was going to be just for 24 hours, Elliot wanted it on film.

    Arthur said "As my daughter would assure you, I support life I have unintentionally created." Sybil is on hand nearby in the facility, where she could confirm this. I suppose Dan could decide his daughter is someone else, but why? It's not relevant to my argument, but , Elliot and Ellen did see Sybil with Arthur on TV after the fight with the fire guy outside Salty Crackers.

    Susan has shown emotional attraction to Elliot but not really more than sensual attraction to Catalina. The only other person she may have demonstrated both toward is Justin. The attractions that Elliot and Susan have for one another but suppress sound like a matched pair of Chekhov shotguns to me, and as wonderful as Ashley is, she still fits the role of The Transitional Girl uncomfortably well. At least in canon, Susan has never seen Ashley playing tongue hockey with Elliot like Diane did at the end of So a Date at the Mall. Remember this moment? If Susan is at the party, we may see another moment something like it. Imagining Elliot with Catalina is safe because Susan knows it can only be a fantasy. But seeing Ashley and Elliot in reality?
  4. Story Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019

    Yes, it was, but my point was to correct your math and your example used an 18th birthday on a Sunday, and that any date in a leap year from March through December will fall two days later in the week than the same date the year before. Remember this; there will be a pop quiz later.
  5. Story Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019

    Points taken. If Diane refuses to come, then what if Susan refuses to come? Remember how Ashley sees Susan? Not much of a party in that case, IMHO.
  6. Story Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019

    Another reason why Susan's house might be better for the party. And, of course, Susan. Wherever the party happens, I can see a big pot of "rock soup" on the stove. For instance: Ashley might want Liz, Sarah, and Susan. Liz might want to bring her boyfriend (in which case he might actually get a name from Dan). Susan will feel obligated to ask Diane and Catalina. Diane won't come without Lucy. Grace and Diane will want Rhoda along, which also makes Catalina more likely. Possibly Diane will want Rhea. Or, maybe their adopted parents would like the older sibling to watch out for the younger, just like Rhea did at that New Year's Eve party. If Rhea comes, she come trailing Rick and Elijah--almost certainly if Nanase is coming. Ellen and Nanase both have good reasons to be elsewhere, but Nanase's mom might well insist that Nanase be there to make sure nothing bad happens to her "little cousin". Plus, Grace. Considering how much known magic is floating around, there may be one or more adult chaperones, such as Mr. Verres himself. Each of these could in turn bring along others, or others could come along despite objections. Mrs. Kitsune might bring along Akiko, either because her husband's out of town, or because she thinks the presence of an innocent child may help ramp down the raging teenage hormones. Arthur J. Arthur may come himself, and bring along his daughter Sybil. Maybe the least likely is Adrian Raven, but Edward Verres may decide it's a good idea, or have Arthur or Mr. Liefeld decide for him. In that case, especially if Diane is coming, maybe Noah. Nightmare scenario: Principal Verrucht invites himself. Obligatory: Matt Cohen, whether delivering the pizza again, or Susan decides to give in. Who knows, maybe this will scare him into giving up? If half of these people actually show up, Susan's mansion might not even be big enough. Maybe Tedd will come across Skuld's space expander from Aa Megami-Sama's own space-whale arc...
  7. Story Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019

    No we're not. March 9th comes after February, so if Grace's 18th birthday was on a Sunday, her 19th would be on a Tuesday if it was in a leap year. Grace's 19th birthday party sounds like the best excuse to get everyone together, but Dan seems to have decided that this party will be different. And if Ashley's comfort is priority one, and a non-initiate like Liz comes along, then likely Edward would forbid any spellcasting, summoning, morphing, etc. Hmm. Sound's kinda dull, don't it?
  8. Story Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019

    No, it would be two days later if this year is a leap year. A normal year is 365 days: 52x7+1. But a leap year is 366 days: 52x7+2, so any date after February would fall two weekdays after that date on the previous year. Anyway, this comic takes place two days before Grace and Sam encountered the smoky transformer who was not Camdin and, probably more important for the party, before Grace told Tedd's dad about it. So I'm thinking that maybe Tedd's place (which is also his dad's place) isn't quite the best venue. How about Susan's house? It's a bigger place with sleepover possibilities.

    The dating system began with EGS in 2002. Day-of-the-month and day-of-the-week corresponds to that year right through to the New Year's Eve party. But Dan seems to have decided not to be bound by the Gregorian calendar any more than any other long-running comic. Personally I'd vote for 2013 for a base year, although as I myself stated in the Shivepedia, the initial dates also work for 2019. But 2020 is a leap year, so either the coming February will have 29 days while February 2003 and February 2014 had only 28 days. Anyway, Dan seems to be going for relative dating now, and it's appropriate for The New World, what with the spare Ellen at large, Diane hooking up with Lucy, etc. , I'm inventing a new system for Moperverse dating, based on NW-Day (for "New World"). Here's how recent events are timed out: NW-7 Friday Sarah meets Sam, Justin meets Luke NW-6 Saturday Ashley's first date with Elliot NW-Day Friday Day of "Minimal" Change (yeah, right) NW+5 Wednesday Grace askes Sarah about her not-date with Sam. NW+7 Friday Sam does not show up for the Friday night tournament at Salty Crackers. Later in Luke's dorm, we meet Camdin. Also that evening, Ashley and Elliot's shockingly uneventful third date. NW+8 Saturday At the mall with Ellen, Grace spots Sam, Sam spots Grace, Sam runs away, and Ellen misses the point. Also on Saturday, Elliot asks Tedd about a party next Saturday. NW+9 Monday Grace uses her antennae on Sam at Salty Crackers, then follows Sam outside and asks if he has a magic mark. They both encounter a smoky transformer who is definitely not Camdin, who is elsewhere, enjoying a sandwich. NW+15 Saturday (provisional) PARTY!!

    All that's needed is for Tedd to tell Grace and the party will become inevitable. And since when do real teenagers even need a theme to party?
  11. Story Wednesday, Apr 24, 2019

    Maybe not, but in this comic, Tedd and Elliot are in Tedd's basement lair. Notice the stairs? The couch where Susan made out with Justin at Grace's last birthday party? Also the same basement where Voltaire revealed himself, and, later, Pandora, but we don't know if Ashley knows either of those factoids yet. But it's definitely a bigger venue, and it's not Elliot's house.

    http://egscomics.com/comic/party-002 Well, Ashley does have long shapely legs in her wishlist. Also fishnets.
  14. Story Friday, April 19, 2019

    This is the comic where Sarah showed Elliot, Tedd, and Susan her cartoon of Dan. It's from seventeen years and two days ago, so this megaconcept has been a part of EGS for awhile...
  15. Story Friday, April 19, 2019

    Going back to the very first panel of the previous comic, has anyone else noticed that the fat guy carrying the beam is actually working and only grunts once, while the guy standing doing nothing grunts twice. Obviously the second guy is the supervisor.
  16. Story Friday, April 19, 2019

    How about fanfiction written by Ashley and illustrated by Sarah?
  17. http://egscomics.com/comic/party-001 Has spring come to Moperville? She's not dressed for January.
  18. Story Wednesday, April 17, 2017

    I suppose she could be Susan just beginning to summon a hammer or three, but the only short skirt I could see Susan actually wearing would be a Star Trek Original Series uniform. I don't buy this as one of Sarah's fantasies as I think she would kind of like to make some men act like idiots because of her bod.
  19. Story Wednesday, April 17, 2017

    And in the very next sketchbook: http://egscomics.com/sketchbook/2018-013 Tedd's got fishy sleeves.
  20. Story Wednesday, April 17, 2017

    Dan has used the Newspaper comics to do this sort of thing for a long time. Possibly this might be a dream. And if it is a story told by one of the characters, it would be Sarah, the artist/cartoonist. Also, the sketchbook I was thinking of doesn't show Ashley wearing fishnet sleeves; Goth Elliot is wearing them. Three other characters with long shapely legs: Vladia, Lavender, and Carol Brown. None of them have been portrayed as spellcasters, though.
  21. Story Wednesday, April 17, 2017

    Ashley is cute but doesn't have long legs. She was drawn wearing fishnet sleeves once in a sketchbook, but she doesn't know how to use magic yet (check her hand in the last panel.) My best guess is that the lady is Pandora, the reigning queen of fishnet garments in EGS. BTW, the hardhats are in short-sleeved tees, so the weather is warm. And, of course:

    Did Van know he had a sibling? Apparently not. Which means that Noriko didn't tell him.
