We get the second recap which lists everything that had gone on before. Since the purpose of this entire re-read recap is to go over what has already happened, there is absolutely nothing to report about it! I do however advise reading it when you get to it yourself. Next up is Act 5!
Act 5 takes place on a strange alien world with a pink moon and a green moon. This world is called Alternia, and somewhere there is a young troll and it is his “wriggling day.” Today he will begin a game, and Things Will Happen. Welcome to Hivebent, please keep your extremities inside the vehicle the entire time and do not attempt to feed the trolls. We hope you enjoy your stay. Continue reading
John sees that the device in the lab has been recently calibrated. (Mutie is also present.) John is directed to examine the monitor. The monitor is showing his old neighborhood, and a large red Betty Crocker factory. The date is a few months before John was born. (December 1st, 1995) He zooms in and sees a gentleman walking with his elderly mother. A target has been locked over the old woman. We get a slight change of angle and see that a meteor is heading straight for the building. It destroys the building, and John is directed to press the blue button.
This creates a Paradox Ghost Imprint of the elderly woman whom John realizes is his grandmother. The slime is sucked into a nearby container. The next direction is “switch four.” This monitor displays an image of a distant island in the Pacific on the date of December 3rd, 1995. (It is of course Jade’s island.) John is directed to zoom in. He sees an elderly billionaire on a yacht, and an adorable toddler. This monitor is also locked and there is also a target on the elderly billionaire. Continue reading
On GA’s monitor, We see the previous conversation that GA had with John, who was pretending to be Rose (badly). With the viewport now on, GA is able to see Rose for the first time.
Rose is directed to examine the laptop. Rose sees the little interaction between John and GA. Her next direction is to go and find John. Rose takes note of phenomena she already knows the reason for, which we are informed by the narrative, is a silly thing to do. What is even sillier is that despite Rose noticing the door was ajar, and also knowing John likes playing pranks, she still opened the door. The bucket that had been propped up there lands on her. The contents of the bucket were Hellacious Blue Aneurysm Gushers. Rose’s prankster’s gambit sinks to an all-time low as a result. Continue reading
This is a not-quite-random list of a few favorite web comics. A few are pretty long running and may be familiar with the reader.
Gunnerkrigg Court, by Tom Siddell
This is a continuing web comic that is a blend of fantasy and science fiction. The heroine of the comic is a girl named Antimony Carver who ends up at a boarding school that is a strange combination of Hogwarts and Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. The school is in a state of cold war with a nearby enchanted forest, which is how a great deal of the plot is generated.
I recently got a new Examiner Title: Phoenix Web Comic Examiner. This article was thrown together mostly so I would have an first article. Currently working on a Homestuck article. (Feel free to suggest web comics I should be reading.)
From hereto here.
We cut briefly to a scene where John is heading off in his rocket pack. Below the image is another image of John with the caption THIS IS STUPID.
Then Rose pesters Dave. This is a repeat of the request she made during her conversation with Jade. Then we see Future Rose preparing for her nap, though she isn’t certain she’ll be able to drop off automatically. The next direction is for Future Dream Rose to cease to exist, which she does. The next point is an [S] command. Future Rose falls asleep. Continue reading
From here to here.
We next see AR and WV doing something mysterious. And by mysterious I mean weird and slightly confusing. The pumpkin, a number of mail boxes and cans appear to be involved. I am not sure what this present is supposed to be. Oh wait, it’s a crown. PM is watching this scene from a distance, and seems to be very agitated or possibly surprised! Continue reading
The Authority Regulator is entirely overwhelmed by the Parcel Mistress, but duty comes first! He cannot surrender the parcels PM must deliver because they are illegal contraband. PM will have to petition AR’s superiors for the release of the items! PM points out that she has an official document requesting the items, but AR is only able to give her the envelope. PM puts the envelope into one of the nearby mailbox-things which are called Pyxis. She is forced to follow the Derse Agent, who still has the package. Continue reading
