...wait, what? Really? REALLY?


Well, time for everyone to grab their supplies and get to the nearest disaster shelter, because clearly the end is nigh.

Obviously, half the reason this got done in a timely fashion is because TWC Voting Incentives are still on hold while I simultaneously work on another batch of Conventional Wisdom comics and, well, the next TWC series. Incidentally, just as a little teaser/present for everyone, expect a big ol' batch of older TWC Bonus Incentives to be added to the Patreon & Incentive Gallery before too long. I didn't realize just how many of those just went up over there for a few weeks without ever being mirrored on SmackJeeves. Man, I've really gotten spoiled by the way the regular Incentives go live on their own. Truly, modern convenience will be the death of us all...

@ Tabitha: You obviously haven't seen Stillez "having fun" destroying things, let alone when she's angry. Seriously, this little food fight pales in comparison, and only threatens to match in emotional intensity. There's also a lot less collateral damage.

I see what you did with the page title there...

DD: That IS a good point there, Tabitha has definitely gotten a very skewed sampling of Stilez behavior since she arrived.

CptNerd: You would not BELIEVE how close I came to not noticing the opportunity before it was too late.

@Blitz & DD - I'm quite certain that, given her interest in said subject, Tabitha is well aware of Stilez's ability to be incredibly dangerous. I wouldn't be surprised if she's the galaxy's 2nd greatest collector of Stilez/Tax-related information after Ichabod. (Although it's still smaller than her collection of Avatar fan gear) What I think she's implying here is that the commonly accepted theory that Stilez is just universally dangerous to everyone in her vicinity all the time, like a Supernova, is incorrect, and that as long as Stilez likes you she's relatively harmless (she wouldn't hurt you on purpose, although by carelessness is another matter). Ironically, the only person on board who is still terrified of her (Ichabod) is probably the 2nd least likely person in the Universe that she would allow to come to harm. So her verdict is: Stilez, safe for friends, only dangerous to threatening enemies.
On the other hand, as she observes, a pack of rabid spoiled ultrarich teenage boys probably is dangerous to anyone around them, and given these particular kids propensity to cause havoc on a galactic scale, they are probably significantly MORE dangerous to their friends than to their enemies, this food fight probably being the least dangerous thing these kids have done all week.
Actually, now that I think about it, that same statement could probably be made about Ichabod, albeit not in exactly the same way. And we'll just not even address what similar statements could be made about Tabitha, while the Galaxy continues to recover from the damage her ship caused getting there. Actually, is there anyone on that ship who's not dangerous?

@ Ed8: I said "seen" for a reason. Tabitha's the type to romanticise and personalise the history of anyone she focuses on, to the point where she would outright ignore Stillez destroying a star-ship right in front of her for kicks because, "Obviously the star-ship did something stupid to annoy her", or "Dad did worse damage while trying to tighten some bolts last week, and you don't hear horror stories about him".

For Tabitha to consider Stillez literally effortlessly destroying fully armed and ready military stations as anything different from these kids fighting while devouring food, Stillez needs to do something that impacts Tabitha. Which means, at least, Stillez needs to hurt a child or Layla in front of Tabitha. If Stillez hurts one of Tabitha's kids, Tabitha will immediately do a 180 and use every bit of knowledge she has about Stillez to trick her into a black hole, which she will then put into a temporal hole, which she will form a second black hole around.
