I hope that we will learn this new black hair girl name soon.

Also all money Bern and May had were in May bag, right?
So they're totally broke.

Glyph want to buy Bern forgivness/approval or something?
Or he just a good guy helping his friends?
I just can't pick a finger on him, I can't help that he reminds me of a snake.

And I thought these stones would be like cell phones so Bern and May and others could communicate in a distance.

Also who cares about Glyph and his auditions, this new girl Vennice, is just so hot, I'm weak agaisnt such cute looking black long hair girl characters, now I hope she will hit on Bern, May or Crest just for fun :D

I find Vennice quite cute! I think I remember reading in the incentives that it was still being decided whether she will be more than just a background character. I do also hope she hits on Bern, as you see plenty of people being attracted to Maytag and wanting more.

I'm afraid I don't like Maytag's new costume at all. I really liked her last costume the best; I'm just not feeling the bare midriff and low-rise pants.
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: Brekkjern on November 06, 2010, 07:51:43 pm
I kind of agree, but i like seeing her in a costume again. Think the costume design will improve as Brion gets better at drawing it as well though.

"Like it?"

Does May refer to Vennice or to her new costume?

Of course the costume but it would be funny if Bern would be flustered and think she's referring to Vennice (who of course looks so cute and is blushing a bit on Bern).

I think I found my new muse in Flipside, Vennice, but Moby is too looking hot and I think she will be similiar in spirit to May.

For me May looses to them in terms of appeal and attractiveness, sorry May you are old news even in new jester outfit.

Pretty sure she's referring to neither, but rather to her shiny new arm.


Edit: We're getting senile in our old age1... that happened over multiple pages mid-to-late last chapter. This can't be referring to it.

From now on, ignore everything we say. It's the only way to be sure.


1When you hit senility shortly after 20, you start to worry. Maybe we're having a detrimental effect on each other after all...

I guess Maytag will be getting a belt with some pouches to carry stuff around with her... Or maybe just a regular purse or bag.

I wonder what Crest is likely to spend his money on, considering he kept his clothes and (from memory) his gear was all in the carriage... hopefully he bought a shield or some sort of simple magick protective item.

Post by: Brekkjern on November 09, 2010, 08:48:38 am
I prefer wearing assault vests. They are so comfy! And in addition, you can have bulletproof plates in them as well. Also, a good MOLLE vest can give you plenty of room and you can move the pockets around as you please. It is brilliant! I wish i could wear them all the time :(
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: RoninAngel on November 10, 2010, 06:54:21 pm
Poor Crest. He gets the spotlight for like one panel and yet again the other, more rambunctious characters push him out of the way. :(
But I am still riding high on Maytag getting her suit back so nothing could bring me down. 
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: Brekkjern on November 10, 2010, 07:31:24 pm
Im glad she has her suit and the personality with her again, but you know? Crest has been a bit of an undeveloped character. I really think it would be awesome to see him develop a bit. Even just if he hangs around and does some training.
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: charles on November 10, 2010, 10:02:26 pm
I think we've seen Crest develop.

You have to remember that its probably only been about 3 weeks since the start of the comic (not including book  0)...

*goes to calculate it*

huh. Around 23 days. Give or take a couple.

But yeah. Crest already seems to have become much more comfortable around women in that period of time.

@Brion: Just gotta say, I've been LOVING all the backgrounds we've been seeing. Not only in the last chapter, but this one as well.

Post by: charles on November 10, 2010, 10:15:09 pm
There was the first night when Bern fought Vulger
7 days that the Lashoar knights tested her for.
4 days travel to Brahma
4 days spent in Brahma
1 day Travel to Danzig's castle
1 day spent  in Danzig's castle
2 days spent travelling the rest of the distance to Eschelon
3 days repairing Maytag's arm

EDIT: Maybe throw in another day for Kin's funeral, Bern searching for Grant and Maytag getting a new suit.

Hey! Is that a sword on Crest's back?  Good to see him carrying one again.  Hell after all he's been through with Bloody Mary and Danzig, he probably doesn't go anywhere without it now... I wonder if it's enchanted.
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: Kiran on November 11, 2010, 12:01:35 am
Maybe he thought a little and bought himself a sword for Phalanx money.

Suspiria of course goes straight to May, figures, she too must love the new suit :P

I would want Crest to develop more around girls, like not with may , then maybe with Moby(shes too seems to be easy going) or moe development with Suspiria.
I wouldn't mind Crest getting some alone time with a girl scenario like date someone showing him this city.

And I'm rushing in some scenes too.  Optimally, there are scenes I would prefer to have played out slower.

You know what, I agree with you.  I have ideas for his character development, but I've been saving them for the Eschelon arc.  You'll be seeing more soon.  Not that he will suddenly become a badass or a ladies man or anything.
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: charles on November 11, 2010, 12:52:51 am
I have a half feeling he might take some interest in the Phalanx.  They obviously have places for swordsmen with no magick ability.  Bern has noted that he's skilled with a blade so with further training from her and maybe some training in the phalanx he could become a member, much like Kin.

It actually wouldn't surprise me if he does just that and parts ways with Maytag and Bern.  He was sort of forced into this journey as a kind of soul searching mission and he appears to be doing plenty of that.

I'm trying to work out whats happening between him and Suspira.  Hanging outside her door, its almost like he was with Maytag early on, where he was trying to figure her out or even weight up the situation.  He appears to be showing that same concern here.  Possibly uncertain on how to proceed.
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: Enkida on November 11, 2010, 02:18:27 am
You know, I feel like Crest is developing relatively well. Maybe not quickly but he has grown.  I find it interesting that he's now carrying a sword - he has potential. Bern has called him a promising swordsman and he thinks like Maytag - finding creative solutions to problems that stump others.

He still is all thumbs with the ladies, though. ;)

I want to know where the other half of Bern's magic sword is and what it does!

Yes, Suspira has proven herself a bit ... unstable, even on good days and she's still reeling from Kin's funeral. Waiting patiently outside her door is a good idea.

Yeah, i agree. I dont want him suddenly to become awesome. That is Maytag and Bernadettes role. But at this moment, i feel we know Suspira better than Crest. I feel like he is a bit left out as a character in the comic that really does add a lot to it.

Im glad you are going to increase his part in the comic now though :D I really look forward to it!
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: charles on November 11, 2010, 10:25:56 pm
Nah, we know Crest better than Nessy.  We've met his mom and know a decent amount of his history beyond just his personality.  Sure we know Suspira's personality, but she's just stands out more as a louder character than the more sullen Crest.  The only thing we know about her history is a quick tale in the intermission about browing up in a restraunt as a shy girl, breaking her seals and getting recruited by the Phalanx, together with her relationship with Kin.

Crest has made progress with his confidence around women and begun a process of finding his place in life by restarting his swordsmanship training under Bern, leaving home and going on this journey of, not so much self-discovery but probably more like independence and just generally experiencing the world.

...We can probably presume he's been getting more sword training by Bern off-screen between stories (Solstice to Brahma, Danzig's to Eschelon and waiting for Maytag to be healed in Eschelon).  It'd only be 1-3 hours a day and I think he started his training on comic day 4, so about three weeks of training.

I suppose there is also the point where QC does random jumps forwards, sometimes - Jeph will take 4 months to do three days of time, and then jump forward 3-6 months. Flipside is contiguous, pretty much from day one to the present.

If we are talking about developing Crest's character, I'd like to put my two cents in here. As a Crest+Suspira shipper, I would like to say that I would like to see more of the changing dynamic that is Suspira and Crest's relationship. :)
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: charles on November 12, 2010, 03:02:01 pm
I get the impression that the dynamic of their relationship, whatever it might be, is changing.  But yeah. We're not seeing it... which means either some future flash-back run... or a side-story.

I have a sneaking idea that we might see Dice turn up again and make a move to be with Crest... Actually, I'm starting to imagine crest might suddenly have several girls after him *PMSL*. Oh I do love the idea of the whole reversal of his situation.

Hell, I know there's a lot of mangas which have a male protagonist that several girls all fall in love with and fight for the attentions of... But its still funny nearly every time.

Also yeah, let's hope they won't be too loud so they would not disturb Crest, or especially Suspiria...
Well maybe Suspiria hearing them making out would go to Crest feeling lonely without Kin?
Of course if all of them are in one apartment being connected, if these are completely seperate rooms then it won't be a problem.

One bite on the ear and Bern is already hot and blushing, ah May knows her weak spots easy :-*

Heh. Poor Crest. Delegated to the Couch (or chaise lounge)... I know that feeling.

I think the book is called "SilverBoW"  Not sure if its a reference to anything.  I think a character in "The Wheel of Time" was called Birgite Silverbow.

Yeah. Once Bern and Maytag start making some noise, I think Suspira might come out to check on Crest or something.

I'd also actually like to see a more traditional jester outfit, one that isn't skin-tight all the way. But you know,  more frills, bells,  stuff to fly about when she dances and does her tricks. Perhaps a pair of fluffy, transparent pants? Ruffly sleeves and a row of lace around the cleavage? She could still show her belly.

He is the last person in comic who would make a move on Suspiria or May+Bern :D

Perhaps a pair of fluffy, transparent pants? Ruffly sleeves and a row of lace around the cleavage? She could still show her belly.
Bern would get a heart attack if she would see her like that :P

Edit:
Also lol at current page, sorry May no sex tonight!
But indeed monogamy is hard for a person who is like May when she can't have sex with that only person when she's in the mood :D
Really in situation like this May and bern are really incompatible.
What are the chances that May will sneak out to have a little adventure of her own with someone?
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: Azure Priest on November 15, 2010, 05:22:04 am
He's sleeping on his stomach with his head turned sideways. Either he has his sword on his person (and it's poking out the back) or that's one serious butt. Can't blame Crest for taking the sofa. Nessie's in an emotionally delicate state now, not that she was ever stable to begin with, and a powerful sorceress so proceeding with care is best. At least they're sharing a room if not a bed. Let's hope it changes in the positive direction.

That's the reason I adore Bern character, never change Bern, be yourself all the time!

Still that last comment from May could really set Bern off, it sounds like May is blackmailing Bern into sex.
May: Look I gave up cheating on you and what I gain in return?
No sex policy when I'm in the mood.
Geez, big thanks Bern for such nice equally exchange.

That would set me off if my gf would say something like that after what May did to Bern.

Bern should get a modest lesbian partner, while May should get a bisexual party type girl or a guy.
Then both would be really happy, the only problem is they love each other.
But I would want to get a development when they would break up for a while.

I would call her "Killjoy-edette," except "Killjoy" doesn't start with a "B".  ;)

I don't agree with your "blackmailing" angle. May is just telling the truth. She used to be able to do things she can't do now, and that sucks. As far as blackmailing, Bernadette basically forced Maytag into the current situation, and she will likely be unwilling to do anything to accommodate Maytag or help her with her problem. Maytag is stuck in a situation where she must masturbate or just ignore her own horniness until it goes away. As a self-proclaimed "nymphomaniac jester girl", this is not something she is used to, so it'll be more unpleasant for her then someone who is used to sexual frustration.

T-T When is the sex scene gonna happen already? Dx
But really, they make a cute couple, they should show their affection more... Even if it's just cuddling. ♥
Cuddles CAN be better than sex. >.>

Well, they did kiss!
I laugh at this. Not saying I'm complaining about the situation in the comic I'm just saying I think this comment is funny.

I think I said this before but oh well. Bern is either going to feel sorry for May or (I think more likely) is going to get mad at her for that comment. Or most unlikely both.

*meh* maybe its about now that Bern will remember those earings and hand one to Maytag for them both to try.  Considering the name of the chapter, they've got to get to the "show" at some point.

Unexpected development, I was really thinking there would be some drama and a bit of fight.
Instead May will be able to relive a little of her sexual frustration and excibicionistic tendencies by masturbating while being watched by Bern.
Indeed it could be fun, I hope that next page won't skip this important process :P

May: Hey Moby! Is what you told during audition true?
Moby: Yes, I like to masturbate all day long when I have a chance and I'm in the mood.

Hmmm. I don't know why but I'm worried about all this attention they're getting from Glyph's friends. Oh sure, I know its all good but there's just this nagging feeling in the back of my head that Suspira may have had a good reason to blow off Glyph's offer of friendship and shout "I don't want friends like you."

Meh, maybe she just means, people who befriend you because they feel sorry for you.  But I can't help think that maybe she knows they pull cruel pranks or something *shrug*

I haven't decided her exact age, but Moby is probably in her mid 20's, like Bern.  Those things they were eating were supposed to be mini-quiches, or egg suffles or whatever.  Not cookies but little pies with egg and cheese and whatever else.

Is it just me or are all the Moms in Iscariot AWESOME!?

For that matter... that seems to be the case in many manga/anime where the mother of the main character/s is actually present.  They always seem to be these happy women who are ready to accept that their children are still living at home and bringing friends over at random times and always ready to make some nibble food for 'em all.

She seems to flip-flop back and fourth a lot. Going from enthusiastic to offended and back to enthusiastic all in the span of one conversation. Not saying that's unrealistic, in fact someone I know very well is just like that, but it is weird for those who aren't used to it.

Ah.  So then in other words, it just reads strange on the latest page that she is suddenly cheerful again in the last panel.  I had thought that Maytag's speech on that page had pretty much earned that reaction, but maybe not.  Not that Moby isn't supposed to be "different," but strange isn't quite what i was going for.

Moby is pretty cute despite the 80's Jem and the Holograms look (or maybe because of it?).

I like the admiring look that Suspira is giving Crest in the last panel today.

When Suspira was introduced to the story, I would never have suspected that she would end up hooking up with Crest. Still, I'm glad he found someone else to draw him from his infatuation with May.

Did maybe May sniffed a chance for a threesome in future so she encourages Bern?
Or she plays along with Moby with this and it's just kind of joke on poor Bern?

I've seen a few where the parents are present, yet strangely juvenile. "My Bride is a Mermaid" comes to the top of the list. Evangelion ALSO has "parent" figures nearby. In most cases where the child(ren) live alone, the youngsters are already at Highschool or college, which has a very different cultural meaning in Japan than the west. (IE, they are already of "legal" age.)

As for Bern + Vennice, I don't think anything's going to happen. Bern is very monogamous and even with Maytag's consent, is going to feel quite uncomfortable doing anything romantic with anyone else or having anyone else do something romantic to her.

It could happen if they both would get heavy drunk, we know Bern has weak head.
And Bern's need an admirer like that for some comedic relief.
Still I wonder who came with this plan/date, after all Glyph listened to what Bern told then in that carriage so he knows Bern only loves May and is loyal to her, and May is too fixed on Bern only too now.
So Moby knowing Bern likes girls from Glyph too should know other info about her.
A radio show where they would ask Bern about her sex life and how a girl sexes up another girl would be hilarious.

Bern certainly drinks heavily at times, but she's no light-weight.

Not sure what will happen with Vennice.  Maybe they'll play the pitty angle on Bern and tell her that Vennice can't get a date or something silly.  Whatever the case I think we'll see honesty from both Maytag and Bern in this.

It'll certainly be good to see Maytag and Bern interacting on a radio show.  Sure Bern wouldn't answer some of those questions, but I'm betting Maytag would answer them for her to Bern's horror and everyone's ammusement as she chews May out for it.

...This is certainly going to make Maytag and easy find for Melter.  Not to mention Moss and Fata if they're planning to chase them down.

Bern's alcohol tolerance is supposed to be legendary ;) so unless there's some more magical orgy-baths in the future, I just don't see it in Bern's character to have anything to do with Vennice. It's too bad but I can always hope something happens. Most new characters are all over Maytag so it's nice to see Bernadette get some attention.

I'm actually a little worried about more mind/behaviour altering spells being used on our heroes... Glyph wouldn't try it for fear of loosing his eyes but I'm not so sure about the others.  Heck, Suspira cast some nasty ones on a fellow student and didn't get expelled so you can obviously use magick abusively to a good extent without the law/phalanx coming down on you... Then again, the girl she cast them on might not have wanted to push charges or something.

I wonder if Bern would even go on a date with Vennice, considering her whole view of monogamy--though I guess if May asked her enough, she might just as a favor.

I'm kinda curious what's going on with Suspira and Crest are up to. I think she's starting get a crush on him, though it could totally be rebound. Still, it'd be nice for that poor kid to get some action :P
Title: Re: Chapter 27: Discussion
Post by: charles on December 23, 2010, 07:25:57 pm
Well... It is kind of a reversal for once.  Bern obviously wants Maytag to be with her only, but this might be the first time we've seen Bern with an opportunity to get some action elsewhere and Maytag is immediately encouraging it.

So, I guess its not a situation Bern may have considered previously. She's probably caught by surprise a bit.

To the reader, maybe.  Though plenty of people have made comments in the past wondering what Maytag would do if Bernadette cheats, so it's not like even the readers were sure about it.  But from Bern's point of view, Maytag has been keeping her sleeping around secret until very recently, even if Bern suspected it.  Therefore, it's only natural to assume that they haven't really talked about any of that stuff in depth yet.

What a shock Bern blushing and being surprised why May even thinks that she would go with such thing while having a proper relationship with her?
Actually I'm thinking that May is pretty dim here, she knows what Bern thinks about such things and how monogamous and loyal she is...
But I would really want to see how May would react if Bern would really cheat on her willingly without any charm/magic involved taking her free will, if it would even hurt her little.
Well she taken off charmed Bern from Glyph in that bath instead of going for a threesome...
Still I wonder how this will go, will Bern be opening a little from her mono shell?
My private views on relationships are more similiar to Bern's loyal monogamy than May's free love to tell the truth.

@Kiran: I disagree. One of the fundamental character traits of Maytag is that she is honest with people. She doesn't lean on social convention and she doesn't censor what she thinks. She's been like this the whole comic. If Bernadette isn't used to Maytag saying something a little wacky and off colour once in a while, I don't see this relationship working out in the long run.

If May isn't hypocritical, she'll be fine with Bern sleeping with Vennice. It seems like May is trying to win Bern over to her side by allowing her to try out having a fling. You know, the whole "don't knock it til you try it" thing. So maybe May is extra willing to have this happen so Bern would be more accepting of May's own free love "addiction" (for lack of a better word.) I don't see her getting insulted or hurt by Bern sleeping with Vennice. I guess it could happen, but judging from her character so far, I think she's all for it.

Post by: FyreFennec on December 28, 2010, 10:59:58 am
I think May should be pretty careful though. I can see why she might want Bern to loosen up but if she wants to remain monogamous she should probably respect that.

I hope Bern and May don't have any relationship trouble ahead, although it has been foreshadowed for so long.  ???

Bern is officially flustered and more than a bit irate. Aside from her lesbian preference, Bern seems to be quite puritan in her outlook. May already knows Bern is embarrassed by her sexuality, making loud announcements regarding it is a bad ploy to say the least.

Really I can say the same about Bern that her fundamental trait is to be loyal monogamist to her partner, she is also shy and kind of puritan in her ways, and May knowing about that still pushes Bern buttons for no reason other than her selfish idea of free love.
Somehow I think seeing recent page that May and Bern would work better as friends than lovers...

I just don't see Bern opening herself to May's free love idea, plus having lovers at side beside May, since Bern would never do that since she needs only one lover as her proper partner, or May staying in chained relationship to one partner she loves the most.

Simple for Bern sex only exist with her lover while for May sex is just a fun thing to do with other interesting people which she doesn't need to love to do that, and both these traits defne Bern and May.

Kiran, I don't think you can call it cheating if it's openly talked about and permission has been given.

Being ok with your significant other finding pleasure and having fun elsewhere doesn't necessarily mean you love them any less. ;)

and Vennice is cute, I kinda want her to go for it too. May is dabbling in monogamy, maybe Bern should dabble in polyamory. hah!

If they are and I were the one writing the comic I would make them have it now while there on the show still. Possibly after they take a short break followed by them not being informed that they went live again about five minutes ago.
But since I'm not the one writing it I can only theorize.

Actually I would like to see some argument live and then Bern suddenly leaving the studio not being able to stand this May talk anymore.
But May instead of going for Bern would stay in the studio still following the talk and joking like nothing happened.
And embarassed Bern could be approached by Vennice.
Could be a nice setup :3

That would be kind of awesome, though highly unlikely. ;-) 

Personally I'm not digging May's passive-aggressive behaviour towards Bern on the podcast (that's how I read it, because if my own husband did something he know would make me extremely uncomfortable in front of tens of thousands of people with a smile and a little "oh, oopsie", I'd be pretty mad at him), but then again it has also been going against her personality to repress her own sexuality for Bern's benefit.  All that relationship pressure has got to explode somewhere if they don't talk about it, and I guess messily on a podcast is just as well a place to do it as anywhere else. 

I kind of think it will work itself out in the end with Bern caving to May's wishes for a more open relationship, just because that's the way this comic goes - when it comes to conflict solving, Maytag usually turns out right in the end - but how it actually gets to that point could be interesting.

I'M BACK!!! and flooded  ???

Just want to say that I thought the whole coverage of Bern's opportunity to sleep around was done VERY well.

I liked the idea that Bern was caught off guard by this development and lashed out at May initially, feeling like Maytag's lack of desire for Bern to be dedicated intimately and emotionally to her only was almost like a lack of concern for Bern or their relationship.  Bern's consideration of the situation and response that Maytag was all that she needed was both heartwarming and spot on.

I'm not sure why we didn't see more debate about this.  Maybe it's just the Christmas season with not many people (including myself) logging in.  I could just have imagined the cries and screams at Bern's conservative stance and speculation that their relationship would disolve or that Bern might even take up the opportunity to be intimate with others or allow Maytag some kind of leeway provided she was discrete.  Then we'd all have been shot down by Brion's choice of a beautiful and well in-character response that just seemed to wash it all away.

P.S. if the Showgram is the side-plot... I'm verymuch looking forward to it.  Besides! Just means that Crest gets more sword practice in.

P.P.S. WOW! Another week skipped! The comic timeline is really moving now!  I wonder How Bloody Mary is doing with the bandits, or Qtalda's hunt for her and Melter's plans to take back Maytag who'd no-doubt become very well known, let alone what Moss and Fata are up to.

I'm not sure why we didn't see more debate about this.  Maybe it's just the Christmas season with not many people (including myself) logging in.  I could just have imagined the cries and screams at Bern's conservative stance and speculation that their relationship would disolve or that Bern might even take up the opportunity to be intimate with others or allow Maytag some kind of leeway provided she was discrete.  Then we'd all have been shot down by Brion's choice of a beautiful and well in-character response that just seemed to wash it all away.

P.S. if the Showgram is the side-plot... I'm verymuch looking forward to it.  Besides! Just means that Crest gets more sword practice in.

P.P.S. WOW! Another week skipped! The comic timeline is really moving now!  I wonder How Bloody Mary is doing with the bandits, or Qtalda's hunt for her and Melter's plans to take back Maytag who'd no-doubt become very well known, let alone what Moss and Fata are up to.
You too, aye? Hope you're keeping your head above water over there.

Actually Bern gets my whole support in her views on relationship, still I'm rather sure that the bubble will burst soon, if May will get her own show(still a radio jester show sounds a bit ridiculous, or it will be May sex talk corner for all virgins out there female/male to give them advice in relationships) there's one thing Bern should do, take Crest and get from Eschelon as far she can for training or her father search, since I'm pretty sure that May, being limited sexually only to Bern, will go fully into her exhibicionistic side during radio talks, which will include things about Bern for sure and their love life, or May past love life experience when she cheated on Bern with interesting people :P

Thanks, man.  Those are some nice comments.

I too would like to see more people posting, even if it's negative stuff.  It's been a little too quiet around here lately.

Major holidays tend to do that. Maytag wanting her own show does NOT surprise me. She's first and foremost an entertainer. She HAD her own show back in Crest's home town. Just after the ending of her show is where they met after all. (Took Crest a long time and a lot of courage to ask her out too.)

Just wanted to say that Maytag's lips in panel three are incredibly sensuous. That is all.
