>> No. 221204
oh I've a real sinking feeling one of them is going to pull security footage "this was no accident, this was MURDER. " And I really hope that is due to Paz being a court agent and not her just dicking about to get Kat out of the workshop. Orders I think Robot will be more accepting of rather than willful destruction. Kat on the other hand...yea. Because that whole talk with Rey was actually about traitors.

Yep not one thing sounds good about that. Keep those you love close Kat, for Judgement Day is coming.

Prepped for some fucking ominous shit to start appearing that translates to "NO PEACE!!" Double load that meaning.

At first they'll decode it wrong because they'll give it to the robots and it will come out "KNOW PEACE!!" So it will be thought they wish to meet Paz and then Kat will decode it again after she leaves thinking everything is good and then.."NO!".

You will have to back that up with links cause the wiki page specifically states it's a Mexican thing which originate in native culture and not Spain.

Its not official but it is done so its not out of the realm for a girl that owns a vita and plays Japanese imports to show an interest in a similar observances of la família.

Is that even a possibillity? As I understood it, she basically reincarnated into Annie.

This sounds realy strange, typing it out.
>> No. 222249
It more ones life force goes into another IIRC, part of the reason Annie so messed up over her mum sometimes. She can never procreate without triggering the cycle which will eventually lead to her own death.
>> No. 222253
I am curious, what if Annie had babies using less than natural means? A woman in our world can have a child without anything fleshy going inside or outside of her, and with the level of weird superscience available to the court that should be even less of a problem. Would it count if she doesn't actually bear the child?
>> No. 222258
Could, I forget if was a genetic imperative or something where her own impulses would overtake her better judgement. It was talked about but never discussed to a conclusion. If Kat continues to make Organic Robots then she might be able to find an out for Annie in that method, if being in a relationship doesn't distract her from SCIENCE.

She likely expected more and not cheap carney bullshit. Maybe it will be a bait and switch and they'll go into the land of the dead and then it will look like she was expecting. And Mort will show his true ghost form.

Uhm, Is Annie trying to be overly polite, or is she actually seeing something that both Kat and us can't see?

The department is meant to deal with the dead themselves, and likely those especially confused and frightened by their state of having died. Makes sense that such a place would make light of itself, helps calm people down.

If the dude who's in charge of the restless dead doesn't know what Kat is/doesn't immediately dismiss her as just a commoner, there's something more going on than just "She's not allowed in here." Maybe it's something to do with being a robot angel.

Paz just walks in

"Evening Ms.Paz."

"Evening Gatekeeper, é a miña familia está dispoñible?"

"Yes, they were inquiring if you'd be by. They said one would be waiting for you outside the visitors entrance."

Annie and Mort looking a bit confused, Kat looking over to her and giving a sheepish little wave.

Paz walks over to Kat and grabs her hand. "Ela está comigo"

"Good enough for me, you all have a nice day."
>> No. 222372
Has Paz ever actually speaken Gallego in the strip? Every time i recall her not speaking in english, she has used plain spanish. Hell, if I recall correctly, her very first dialogues in the comic, was speaking in spanish to herself (that bit with Mort trolling her).

With his personality being a sham or the result of whomever he was seeking to run away from something he did. If the former then I see a heel turn parade in the future.

What exactly is she? Not recognized as just human, and allowed into the land of the dead. Wonder if this has anything to do with the machine angel. Pseudo-alive maybe?
>> No. 222474
Tech Golem thing I'd wager.
>> No. 222481
My interpretation is that she hasn't become something different in and of herself and more that she's like the robots' beliefs in her have made her the Machine equivalent of a Psychopomp due to her role as an Angel/Creator Goddess/Harbinger of Death of robots. Possibly this is something that's never existed before, which is why the ghost guys don't recognize her symbol.

Though still there might be something to the fact that she saw him right away.

The crappy carney bit might be funnier if I was from Britain or something all I'm saying.

My guess is the last few pages are going to be from Annie's perspective, and everything will be horrifying or at the least macabre.

Yea those expressions on Mort and Annie, they aren't seeing the same stuff Kat is seeing. Kat possibly a mystical dead spot, so ingrained in Tech that her mind cannot reach that plane.

Pretty much, we are definitely seeing stuff with Kat's POV, and it's obvious that both Mort and Annie are seeing things quite different.

I don't know, the page before that shows that Annie was aware that something was in the room. Their reaction is more of a "holy sht, why is she yelling at the terrifying spectre of death like that, lets GTFO of here".

Tom made a comment about a line in Man of Steel (the measuring dicks line) along the lines of "if she had a dick it would be bigger than the mans." and you can guess where things went from there. He apologized but since they were idiots for causing a ruckus over nothing they are still not leaving him alone yet.

The tweet in question.

It's kind of his fault for hooking his star to these types of people.

That, and he chose to watch Man of Steel. Almost a year of people fuming about how terrible it was and he still sat down and watched it. If I wasn't all ready posting this image, I'd attach a thumbs down gif.
>> No. 224352

the problem people had was not the tweets in question, it was when people asked (really nicely!!) for clarification on what he was talking about he wordlessly retweeted a bunch of transwomen who then got harassed by his rabid fanbase. i watched this shit all happen in real time and it was weird and out of character. also cool use of the word "those people" when you mean the lgbt community, you shitsack.
anyway tom gave a really good sincere apology on his tumblr+i hope he feels better and the majority of people ive seen have been supportive of him. its a genuine apology and not a SORRY U GOT OFFENDED apology.

I watched it in realtime too.

It made no sense. At all.

He mocked the "dick measuring" line because that's a terrible way to try and show your female character is tough. It had nothing to do with people that are transgender at all, but a few decided it did and got angry, and he retweeted their shit, and IT GOT STUPIDER.

>also cool use of the word "those people" when you mean the lgbt community, you shitsack.

No, he didn't mean the lgbt community. He meant the sort of people that will look at a guy basically saying "it's bad writing to try and make a woman look strong by having her talk abut her makebelieve penis" and respond "what's wrong about a woman having a penis?"
>> No. 224358

This is like the polar opposite of how the PA guys handled *that* shitstorm, and it's equally as stupid. Shit, I bet if I asked Tom exactly what did he do wrong, he would not know what to say.

im talking about you dumbass
but congrats on all of you who would much rather unironically side with the transphobic portion of the fanbase that has 0 qualms about transwomen being targeted and harassed for asking a non-aggressive question. what kind of fucked up idiots are you that you prioritize a fucking webcomic over real human people to the point where you feel personally slighted whenever someone presents a criticism of the creator to you. grouse and gripe how ~tumblr~ is the worst thing ever (and by tumblr u mean minorities, dont use codewords) but you guys are being the worst kind of fanboy who leaps on the throats of anything who dares to offer up even the smallest crumb of criticism, even if that criticism was "hey maybe you shouldnt mass humiliate transwomen?"
when someone makes an apology for something they have recognized was a mistake and hurt people, its not "groveling" and its not up to you to decide whether or not it should be made. it wasnt directed at you, your opinion does not matter.
if youd rather be lumped in with >>224359 's kicking rad use of slurs+the portion of the fanbase that is still actively attacking these women because for some reason youve formed a genuinely angry opinion on something that has nothing to do with you at all then lmao youre a huge asshole. keep on truckin w/ your anti-tumblr circlejerk, but remember youre on plus4chan, so careful where you throw those stones.
>> No. 224390
Bea, listen to me. Nobody here is being transphobic. Nobody here is endorsing transphobia, or any other kind of phobia. There were people being considerate that Tom should have focused on, but there were also people being obnoxious twats who jumped at the chance to condemn Tom for what they perceived as an offense. This is the internet, where the loud and spiteful get far more attention than the polite and reasonable. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Tom just didn't see the polite inquiries, and those obnoxious twats are the only target of the ire in this thread. Don't assume the worst in what people say.

Please don't bring the animosity and name-calling here.
>> No. 224392
Is there any way to give him some kinda support at this juncture that doesn't get lost in the morass?
>> No. 224395
seems like this was a huge misunderstanding. people misunderstood his initial tweet, and he retweeted them without comment because he didn't understand what was going on. unfortunately his retweets opened up those people to harrassment from actual transphobic idiots. he apologised, deleted the tweets, and obviously feel really bad for what he did.

don't defend him by bringing others down. he doesn't need white knights, especially not anyone who blames the transgender community and mocks them for being sensitive. fuck the very few responding to his tumblr post saying shit like it was "almost good enough" or they "don't appreciate" Tom's "veiled suicide threat" but these people aren't even worth caring about or responding to, and they certainly don't represent the bulk of the transgender community or the gunnerkrigg fandom. they're far outnumbered by guys like >>224359 who are the whole reason why this even happened.
>> No. 224400
So, let me get this straight: Tom said something ambiguous, got confused and caught between two groups of people with agendas, apologized to the group actually worth sympathizing with, and the best character is leaving the comic.

Also, bea and an anon are silly jerks
>> No. 224404

in this thread we have someone using a slur against transwomen, that i quoted, so im not really on board with the whole "no one here is being transphobic" thing. as well as the dude using cool code words like "those people".
its unreal that people are taking him saying "i felt so bad about alienating a portion of my fanbase i contemplated self harm because i have been recently diagnosed w/ depression" to mean "sjws bullied me into suicide". people were upset!! but i can guarantee that 99% of the people who were upset wanted an explanation and an apology, not to see tom dead.
its weird that anti-social justice people freak out over the concept of "people getting offended at EVERYTHING" and then go out of their way to be offended by someone's apology that wasnt even intended for them.

yeah p much this too.


yo no. i dont know why you and other people cant read but the people he tweeted were humiliated and got harassed by several people including one dedicated anti-trans twitter. ive said this like 8 times.
this is what makes me upset about this whole thing is that people keep framing it like the Grievous Sin he committed was a misunderstood tweet and not the fact that he used his twitter as a platform to expose a bunch of marginalized people to a crowd of 13k shitty people.

i told tom that his apology meant a lot to me as a queer lady and that his work was incredibly important to me.
the fact that was was willing to listen+genuinely atone for what he said is like the best possible thing that could have happened+this is 10000 leagues away from the kind of horseshit we get from penny arcade and the like when it comes to apologies.
tom is good people. this was a good step. im not sure why ya'll think apologies are for weenies or whatever.
take a big dude to own up to mistakes.

like i cant understate how upset this made me when i watched it happen as a big queer idiot. i dont want tom to be a bad person, i never wanted to dismiss him forever on the basis of this one incident because it was a weird, out of place blip on a record of otherwise stellar behavior when it came to minority issues. toms work is mega-important to me+to a lot of people here, im assuming.

even at the time i really didnt want to believe it was malicious, it seemed like an honest lapse in judgement.

What I want to know is how did people want him to respond to those politely worded questions being sent to him without having the exact same effect? Like, if he responds to the tweet rather than wordlessly retweeting it, it still puts the person he's responding to in the public crosshairs. Their name is still on there and it's only an extra click to see what the original tweet he was responding to is...remember too that the harassment wasn't coming from the tweet itself but from a screencap posted on 4chan...

Personally, I got pissed at Tom's apology because there was nothing to aplogize for to begin with. And the way he worded it, makes it sound that he is apologizing merely because he feels he is about to lose readership and thus income. Which probably is the case (again, there was NOTHING to apologize for),, but it is kinda shitty to see an artist sucking it up like that.

>im talking about you dumbass

I rather doubt that, since you just replied to the first post I made in the thread.

Let me be blunt here: I support the rights of transexuals. And those rights are endangered by idiotic crusades in which individuals act offended by stuff that wasn't about them, due to an incorrect interpretation. What's more important, getting a thumbs up on some social media from people that were already on your side, or actually making progress by changing negative perceptions? This nonsense only made perceptions more negative. His tweet was in no way, shape, or form about transexuals. He mocked a badly written line in which a woman showed how "tough" she was by referring to her imaginary penis, something reaffirming the belief that masculinity = strength. Gender identity issues weren't the issue, and attacking someone who made no mistake only creates a counterproductive negative perception of attempts to right actual wrongs.

The issue was that his retweeting trans women's reactions to the stupid man of steel line caused them to be harassed. It wasn't his intention and he could not have known it would lead to harassment, but it did, so he apologized. It was a good thing to do. It's worth more to be upset at the people who decided to attack trans women for being confused than it is to be upset that trans women were confused. Do you understand? The thing is, trans people wouldn't have to be so sensitive if you would focus the blame on transphobes instead of how sensitive they are due to how often they are threatened by transphobia.

I think this is literally the chapter where Mort dies, dude. I'll be taking bets now on how he's gonna kick the bucket.

For some context, this is currently taking place in London in World War II, likely 1939, when the biggest evacuation took place. If he is left behind in London and dies in the bombings, how'd he end up at the Court? If he was evacuated to the Court, how'd he die?

I'm quite capable of blaming bigots for their bigotry, and blaming people that shoot their own cause in the foot for shooting their own cause in the foot. I'm also capable of trying to pick up the resulting slack for that cause. If you're trying to do anything beneficial for society as a whole, there will always be a few people "helping" with all the skill of the three stooges. The solution isn't to let their bumbling go on without comment.

>Geez, going by your guys' reactions you'd think the title of the chapter was "Mort Dies" or something.

Uh... it's Mort waving goodbye going "Goodbye". And a flashback to how he died in the first place.
