*sigh* Yeah, another half-finished update. Sorry, but it's taking me a lot longer than expected to get back into shape after all those Conventional Wisdom-related crazy days. I'm still falling asleep at wildly random hours of the day and waking up at equally random points in the middle of the night, which is making it hard to soldier all the way through an update in one sitting. And since any page that prominently features Stilez takes twice as long to color, and any page with really messy, debris-laden effects takes longer still, I figured I'd better hurry up and post what I had. So the usual "check back later for the final draft" instructions apply, both for this comic and the new Voting Incentive... which IS a lot farther along than Tuesday's was, by the way, so I should be able to get both of them posted at the same time... whenever that is.

EDIT: OKAY! Finished page and new Voting Incentive are both up... though I must confess I cheated a bit. Stilez's cheese coverage wasn't supposed to be anywhere near as extensive, but it turned out to be a LOT faster this way.

Like all of Stilez's previous opponents, the poor, doomed Macaroni never really stood a chance of winning.

@ Incentive: That's... actually a very Stillez thing to do. Still want to know why he's never done that before, and why he needs to hit a button in the ship to do that.

@ Comic: Avatar has non-oxygen in her body. Clear all pathways to the Airlocks so that she can be expelled immediately. After all, her sneezing is capable of bringing down skyscrapers! We're just glad she doesn't seem to suffer from hayfever, not that she seems to go anywhere near enough plants in bloom to set it off if she did have hayfever.

...actually, could, or would, Avatar have hayfever? What would that be like. If she was stuck in the middle of a city while suffering from hayfever, how much destruction would her hayfever cause? More or less than the average Mad Science Experiment gone wrong?

I'd say that Avatar doesn't get sick the way we normally think of getting sick, since that implies a compromise of the bodily systems and that would be at odds with the whole "indestructible body" gag.

There isn't REALLY that much of a difference between consuming foodstuffs and, say, inhaling particles of pollen, beyond the fact that one is less commonly associated with violently sick reactions and therefore funnier when it happens to Avatar.

@ Blitz: Actually, there is sufficient difference between consuming foodstuffs and inhaling particles of pollen for someone like Avatar. The first is something that she's outright designed not to be able to do, since she's designed to survive without food or drink eternally, and is moderately large in size compared to her mouth & nose. The second, however, is a side effect of breathing in some places, and we can already see that she's designed to be able to breath at a normal human atmosphere. Due to this difference, if Avatar doesn't have a direct negative association with the particles of pollen, it's likely that the only issue she'll have with being in a highly pollinated environment is that she'll get uncomfortable and want to sit out in the vacuum of space far quicker than she otherwise would.

Edit Add: And that's without getting into how Avatar's highly destructive heaving could be the side effect of turning every part of what she inhales (because she technically can't eat) into energy, on the assumption that she doesn't run on perpetual energy somehow.
