S9.335b - Art Aside Easter 2018


Happy Easter!

Today's art is courtesy of an initiative on the StArt Faire Discord channel from back in February. Artists would decorate one half of an egg (or heart) and then the results would be combined. On the right, I elected to have Sine (as president), Versine (as helper/nemesis, either holding the paint or throwing it) and Para (because bunny).

On the left are Tori, Terry and Thea, characters from Tenor's comic: "My Dad is a Magical Girl". You can check that out in StArt Faire, or where it's mirrored on Tapas. (Really, check it out - what if parents knew about what their daughters did? FWIW, Tenor's a parent too.)

As far as updates for this comic go, I may try for every other week? It's weird, this lack of motivation is rather a new thing for me. Has the last six years meant anything? Anyway, as always, thanks for reading.

S9.335 - Spiritual Plane


A steppe being a large, flat, grassland plain (it’s where Maud’s step-sister lives) while they’re a plane, in spirit. More on Hyper’s ZPM at that link (and Stargate’s ZPM there). Thanks to John Golden for the shortest distance comment.

You may have noticed the lack of an update last week. I’m struggling a bit to close off Series 9 properly, plus I want to devote efforts to my serial “Time Untied” before our child is born in June. So updates will be a bit random going forward.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

QLYN: Found anything?
LYN: Maybe. I’ve realized our standard form, x - y = 0, is a plane equation.
QLYN: With a z-coefficient of zero. Nice.
LYN: Our Hyper once had a Z-Axis Points Module. That’s what created ParaB. So with Hyper’s notes...
QLYN: We could find the shortest distance to Hyper, if we need her help.
LYN: Might be safer to keep reading up on planes.
QLYN: Sure, one steppe at a time.

S9.334 - Re:Search



Take a look, it's in a book. Though if you have any thoughts on hidden abilities for the various math equations, I'm listening.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

PARA: Oh, wait. I did gain flight! ... By almost dying.
QELLY: Elly meditated for her power change.
ARCTAN: Maybe it’s different for everyone.
GAMMA: What will you try then?
 ('Tans look at each other)
QLYN: I’ll go look in books.
GAMMA: Novel idea.

S9.333 - Power Failure



I honestly don’t remember if I’ve used the derivative joke before, but it’s likely. Feel free to refresh my memory.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

TESSIE: Sure, we can make something for you. Arts also does crafts.
GAMMA: Thanks!
GAMMA: What’s happening here?
QELLY: Elly says we can gain powers like her.
QLYN: A power-up would make me into Para. It’s the virus all over again.
GAMMA: Our plot’s become derivative?
ARCTAN: No, only our puns.

S9.332 - Faire Game



Today's comic is a shout-out to topics in StArt Faire's "Comic Tea Party" on Discord last Thursday. In case you thought I was working with a buffer. If you missed it, you can see a transcript here. (I'm still open to suggestion.)

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

QELLY (thinks): Wait... I sense future echoes. How is that even possible?
ELLY: Our history holds the key to our future. Join me.
QELLY: Pffft. The real shipping isn't us, it's Expona with herself.
ELLY: ...What?
QELLY: Shouldn’t our future become formulaic? With added dimensionality?
ELLY: You're missing my points.
QELLY: Oh, Ayel gave me a CompSci soda. Have a C-Plus plus.

S9.331 - Home Economics



Ever feel like no matter how much promotion you do, people only find you through random chance? Anyway, lemmas, Slope’s hunger and tourism all came together nicely at last. Last reminder about StArt Faire's Discord Chat this Thursday, 8pm EST!
By the way, Maud's serving Curl-E fries.

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

QLOGAN: What’s with all the tourists?
QSINE: We thought your group brought them here.
COUNT_B: That Slope girl seemed to be obsessing about the food you had in math. We thought we’d check the place out, and found all this.
QSINE: We do make a great lemma meringue pi.
COUNT_B: Nice myth about alcohol proofs.

S9.330 - Be Seeing You



There's the mouse rollover message, and then the fact that if GPS were looking at browser history, Latti would be making a more obvious reference to the latest ‘Doctor Who’ special.
(A reminder that the StArt Faire Discord channel will be talking about Any ~Qs on Feb 15th!)

<<FIRST <LAST WK INDEX NEXT WK> END>>

QLOGAN: Good work, Rhys. GPS proved himself, so we’re free.
RHYS: I’m good at more than making tea.
ELLY: Let’s return to math. Maybe I can help other tans to evolve like me.
SIGNUM: You sure you can leave geography?
ELLY: Yeah. I even gave GPS a new super visor.
GPS (wearing Visor): Check out my new add visory services.
LATTI: I love it. Never take it off.
