So, I was gonna grumble again about how I originally wanted this page to be combined with Tuesday's, so that all the repeated lack of payoff moments could pile up on top of each other... but I'm not gonna. You know why? BECAUSE TODAY'S VOTING INCENTIVE TURNED OUT FREAKING AMAZING, THAT'S WHY!!! Yeah, this was another instance of be getting too caught up in the Incentive to get started on the actual comic on time, but so what? This thing still turned out WAY better than I expected it to, so I don't have time to be grumpy about any flaws in the comic, real or imagined.

And besides, this page also sets up more Tabitha/Stilez/Avatar interaction. Who's gonna complain about THAT?

This page also establishes that Ichabod's face melts when he's particularly unhappy, which is vitally important information for an upcoming arc... that will start three years from now :)

Also, his body naturally produces thick clouds of cross-hatching when distressed.

@ Incentive: My explanation for the incentive comes in two options (beyond, of course, the fact that it looks cool. Also, I'm continuing this because I started and don't want to stop, until I run into something that doesn't need explaining).

First option is, she's travelled through the swirly blue gate into a connected dimension where only surfaces upon which light hits are solid, and thus she has to wear those clothes in order to create light to be hit by in order to maintain her solid state.

Second option is, that this is a planet where, due to a certain cosmic dust cloud, light reflects off the far side of the buildings and people wear glowing techno-clothes in order to ensure that their clothes can actually be seen and so that their screens can actually be seen.

Ooooh, interesting. To be honest, I'd just kind of lazily assumed that the Incentive depicted some kind of virtual environment since, ya know, glowy lines = TRON and the like (and it might possibly explain Mariska wearing those goggles all the time if she uses them to plug into VR things) ...but idea of that being a "real" place is a lot more interesting!

Well, yes, but that's the easy answer. The easy answer that everyone would make. That doesn't belong in the Far Out There Universe (in my mind), as the Far Out There Universe has far too many insane possibilities to explore!

My license plate!
Actually that's backwards, the title should be "CHAOS" which is the plate on my car, which I would then have explained down here.

CHAOS, however, is what you get with 'multiple insane ladies' on one ship, so it's not predictable whether, or when, they will cancel each other out, but sometimes they will. It's probably controlled by 'the law of funny', but that is notoriously unpredictable. (It's like how when you try to use the fact that you're genre savvy, it doesn't work.)

@Darius: Have you played Closure too? Your first voting incentive theory sounds similar:

Darius Drake (Guest), April 24th, 2017, 7:53 am

@ dylgramac: No, no I have not. My fist Incentive Theory came from "There's a swirly gate in the background, so it's how she entered this place, which will be a new dimension. Now I have to explain why her clothes have to glow". My second Incentive Theory came from "Let's make that glowing portal the sun. Wait, the building-like things are glowing on the wrong side for that to be the case. Let's run with that anyway and see what I can come up with!"
