Frankly, the fact that there's only ONE hole in the ship means the plan worked even better than usual

WHOA! It's not even dawn and the page is already up? Enjoy it while you can, kiddies, I'm sure it'll get a LOT worse over the course of next month.

Speaking of the future, by the way, just a quick heads up that there'll be a extra page on Thursday. One special Thanksgiving page, two regularly scheduled pages on Friday and next Tuesday, and then the Christmas bonanza begins next Friday!

Anyway, actually seeing Tabitha and the kids was a last minute addition, the plan was originally to just hear her over the intercom. It's definitely a change for the best, though, since Bridget is probably my favorite part of the whole page. "MOOOOOOOM! Why are always being so EMBARRASSING?!?!?!?"

Last up, there's a new Voting Incentive, but the Vashti stuff is over. Between all the Christmas pages AND the multiple things I'm trying to get wrapped up for Patreon, Incentives aren't going to have a theme beyond "whatever I felt like drawing at the moment" for a while.

@incentive: Alphonse cosplaying Ram Quatzi is not something I ever would have expected… Cool!

Even more ironic because the role of Bridget in this scene is played by Tabitha whenever her Dad goes on a similar rant. Probably best not to point that out to her, though. It might maker her mad....oops, I mean "angry".

Layla - the correct response, as any parent knows, is "yes, i saw, you did a very good job sabotaging." whether or not you actually saw.

I almost forgot why Ichabod didn't want them on board the ship - he wants to keep them apart from the cute, adorable, harmless kitten & puppy duo. Hard to believe they've even gone this many pages without stealing the scene.

Wait...
What is it about having just one hole in the ship means that the plan has worked better than usual: is it because the escape pod is presumably somewhere *inside* the ship, or just because that's less damage than the ship usually sustains?


Ed8, November 21st, 2017, 4:16 pm

Welcome, New Commenter!
Probably the latter, since the alt-hovertext emphasized "one" in caps, as opposed to there being a whole bunch of holes in the ship. Nitpickers must really make a *lot* of money for the Cap'n not to have kicked Ichabod off a long time ago if that is the case.

I can totally see Ichabod saying something like this to Tabitha and Trigger to start with:

"And just to be clear, I don't want this ship damaged in any way, and since we want to keep Stilez away from them that means that they can under no circumstances come onto this ship. That means definitely no shuttles, escape pods, transmat receiver platforms, wormhole stabilizer gates, or armoured space suits crashing through the hull and into the ship. Is that understood?"

Sam Bronson & Ed8:Yeah, any plan Ichabod is involved with usually goes so completely off the rails that a single puncture point (that isn't even leaking air thanks to the pod still blocking it up) is honestly an unusually favorable turn out... and that's INCLUDING the fact that it's rather obviously resulting in the one situation he promised Mariska he'd avoid.

SS: "...and that also includes OUR ship somehow crashing into THEIRS! That's unacceptable as well!"


Seros Senric (Guest), November 22nd, 2017, 4:15 pm


@Blitzkrieg1701
And then Tabitha running off with "Don't crash into their ship! Got it! Nothing to worry about."


Ed8 (Guest), November 22nd, 2017, 4:32 pm


Given the level of thoroughness expected of a nitpicker, I would expect a 122 page detailed, indexed, categorized list of specific outcomes and sub-outcomes that were NOT supposed to happen was provided. Which Tabitha may or may not have glanced at for a couple seconds before making her plan.

Mariska should by now know to expect that the one outcome she wanted Ichabod to avoid was the one which had a 99.94% chance of happening anyway.
