I now realize the second or third page of most chapters so far feature a gracious shower scene. I'll chalk it up to coincidence, yeah that's it. This shower is kind of a buzz kill though, isn't it?

On the topic of unabashed nudity, I've once again registered for for the Valentines Day Sex Drive run by Stef Marcinkowski of Sarah Zero.
Here!
If any fellow comicfury friends care to take part, it's a fun event I participated in last year, good way to boost traffic and meet other webcomic artists.

Oh dear "mother" voice telling them of for being two in the shower :D

That was a important conversation. It still seems like they are both unsure about the how and what´s. I am a bit afraid of the drama to come. Hope their creator Casey have not put to many obstacles in their way.

It wouldn't be fun without obstacles!
Also, now I'm not going to be able to think of the P-Comm voice without hearing Mother from Alien.

Oh man, I'm totally gonna participate in VDSD. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. :'D

Also that shower voice is pissin' me off. Leave those cuties alone!

Right on hope you have fun, it's a neat event, a few of people in my links are people I met from last year.
Citizens of Hyperion are probably pretty good at ignoring the voice by now.

Aw sweet. I'm lookin' forward to seeing what you come up with!

And yeah, hadn't thought of that. Keep on truckin'.
Sarah 1st Feb 2015, 6:59 AM edit delete reply
Lolling so hard at the shower telling them that there's too much body trying to play around. Also I cannot even deal with how precious they are and how cute and frank that conversation was and aaaaaah. I love this comic.

Ha! Shower is not happy. Dear shower, I don't think your occupans care about your math.

Lovely update! Vinnie and Galvin are so adorable together.

LOL I hope they didnt skimp on materials when that shower was built! Its about to take a shake-down cruise, disco style!

I'm sure there will be some alarm and flashing lights when structural integrity becomes compromised.

I'm pleasantly surprised by how easily they're both taking this. :)

So I don't think you've ever given Vinnie's salary (which I don't mind, I'm happy with the relative value of credits being "whatever makes sense for the current plot" ;) ), but I was worried there that Vinnie was going to tell Galvin he doesn't *make* that much in a week, much less saving it! At any rate, I have a feeling that he's going to be burning the candle at both ends again for the next few weeks, the poor sweetheart…

This is exactly my thoughts as well. Hopefully Galvin won't be eating ramen for a month. :[
Notos 1st Feb 2015, 3:39 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Yeah I generally try to avoid explicit mentions of how much they make during a day/week for fear of the math (which I am atrocious at) getting too complicated when it breaks down to smaller daily DLC transactions.
I tried to track Vinnie's account more carefully in early chapters but found it was a bit more trouble than it's worth, I much prefer as you said keeping it relative to the current plot, lol.

Regardless, they'll have to take some strides for this one.

josbell975
I just figured Galvin picked a low, but reasonable, amount that Vin Vin could do. Guessing he knows how much Vin makes, ball park, and makes way more being in higher position. At my work, you know what someone makes roughly based on their titles.

It also depends how LONG they've been working there, but I get the sense both pretty much got this job, and no other, after education.

The question then (which is one I meant to pose in the last ask... section) is how long education lasts. 18? 21? 25?
Notos 6th Feb 2015, 1:37 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Much like our system now, depends on field of study, and money! Money probably factors into it MUCH more than it even does now, so I imagine a steep decrease in populace education here.

Even showers register users? That could be cool though, have preferred temp and settings saved to your liking =P But this would feel like it's watching you, though they don't seem to mind xD
Notos 1st Feb 2015, 7:22 PM edit delete reply
Notos
Yep, saved user settings and all. And they certainly do watch you, Galvin's compliments how he looks in chapter 3.

now what cracked me up most is the shower xD
MoonByte 1st Feb 2015, 7:04 PM edit delete reply
I would find it hilarious, if the shower would actually complain like "Unauthorised action detected. Please cease any shaking." or "Strong vibrations have been detected. Should you not have received a local earthquake warning, please consult your landlord for further instructions" xDDD
MoonByte 1st Feb 2015, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
I would love it, if the shower would actually complain in the most ridiculous ways from here on :'D
"Unauthorised usage detected, please cease all interactions" or "Vibrations Level 3 detected. Should you not have received a earthquake warning, then please contact your landlord."

That weird moment, when the page tells me, I didn't comment, I re-write it and now see both comments .__.

Ahh yeah, it's finicky sometimes.
I imagine earlier builds of the system were probably that 'unaware' of what their users were doing. Fun times waiting for them to perfect that technology I bet.
ChristinaSJ 1st Feb 2015, 10:43 PM edit delete reply
Arrrgg!!! That system! Turning everything into commands and "suggestions" on how to spend money. Arg! Need to see two hot guys together :D

Thanks for another great page/installment!

hm.

i like your pacing, notie

i can't be invested in a story if its resolution comes too quickly.

we're not little kids, and my A.D.D. is not that bad

have you considered trying another font for your comments' section?
(i am kind of hurt that i can't really tell when i've emboldened text.)
Notos 2nd Feb 2015, 1:17 PM edit delete reply
Notos
I think this format might be the only one comic fury offers. Regardless, I'm absolutely horrible at any sort of programming, even basic html so I probably wouldn't be able to implement anything if I could. You might be able to get emboldened font by use of code? Not sure.

hey

i am replying on another computer.. ..on which, indeed, the native browser font differs.

i can descri'e the emboldening here.

hmm...


...i never got to see Battle Angel.
:-(
yet another "reference source" i am not familiar with (yet).
Midnight Jake 2nd Feb 2015, 4:23 AM edit delete reply
Like in the previous chapter I notice that Galvin is once again going commando.

Is underwear obsolete in this time?
Notos 3rd Feb 2015, 1:41 AM edit delete reply

No, that kind of became a trait after a few readers mentioned it the first time I had (mostly likely mistakenly) drawn him without undies, it kinda stuck after that, you can thank the readers.

Rex Ganymede (3005). 2nd Feb 2015, 4:35 AM edit delete reply
Rex Ganymede (3005).
ah.

i think i get it, now.

this story also involves a running commentary on some people's perverted version of "natural selection"/"survival of the fittest": where, "surely, if you are not able to be part of the Upper Echelon, then obviously you deserve to flounder down exactly where you inhabit.
"you Worm."

yeah?
Notos 2nd Feb 2015, 1:18 PM edit delete reply

There certainly is a harsh class system in the story, like any good cyberpunk theme. I draw a lot from Battle Angel, which I think had an even worse class system than this!
Fyora 2nd Feb 2015, 9:41 AM edit delete reply
Something in my memory makes me think I found this comic because of something related to last year's Valentine's Day Sex Drive. Not sure though, my memory's not the most accurate thing.

Possibly, last year I drew the Hot Legs gang in a neon 80's sort of pinup, you can find it in the archives.

If someone said I was 16% to fat...I'D CUT A BITCH! Just saying.

And Galvin's dick reaching around Vinnie's ass, very Long Dong Silver. Vin Vin is smart to grab it like that, lol.

Le sigh, I wish I was only 16% to fat. I love guys with bellies but not to happy with my own. Whats a chaser to do? Work out!?! I'LL CUT YOU!!!

This Ghetto rant is brought to you buy the letter C and being snowed in.
