    Well its probably the "go to" place for discussing the comic. :D

    OT: I always loved the way this entire update was framed out.

    [​IMG]

    I keep returning so often to page 86 because of that. Not just cause of Saber's moment, but the feel that it kind of reads like a typical revenge cliche (but since the roles are reversed and youre watching it from the Sith perspective who is also reluctant to even do the deed, its something else). That padawan is definitely getting used in the comic somewhere later.

    I'm wondering if we will see the Great Scourge of Malachor in the comic at one point or the other...

    [​IMG]

    The time period should be right?

    Also one of my favorite moments. Crazy to think that was practically our last interaction with Saber (not counting the brief holo-mail exchange with Missy) and that was like 40 pages ago!!

    That would certainly make for some amazing imagery. If anyone could do a place like this justice, it's @Alamact ! I don't think we've quite pushed him to insanity yet, so might as well keep testing the limits.
    :D

    Please tell me I'm not the only one who thought Saber looked ridiculously hot in that frame. I was like "DAT STARE 10/10 would let him pincer me anytime!".
    But but but... we had this gem!

    [​IMG]

    How could it NOT count!?
    I'm actually more interested in all this hubbub that we are going to see Corellia in Episode VIII and that it will be based on the exotic city concept art from TFA. Won't that contradict the urban look in the comic?

    Game, set, match. You win! I defer to your sensibility, m'lady! :)

    I would go crustacean-sexual for Saber, and only Saber.


    I wonder... had Missy witnessed that moment, would it have been good for their relationship or not??

    I'm not sure that this particular city is necessarily going to be on Corellia. We're talking about shots from a teaser here, which could jump from one point of the movie to a completely different one the very next second, so that leaves a lot of room for the exotic city to be on a different planet.

    I need to definitely come back here more often. xD
    I think the Rear Admiral would be wise to dance around the edges of canon instead of go straight down the middle. Do stuff like Battle of Takodana (before Maz turned it into Cantina) and so on and so on..
    I don't think this will be a problem. Even if it ends up being Corellia (I doubt it xD) you can explain it easy that it was just a different part of a BIG urban planet. There is also a 1000 year difference between ORPA and the OT at least.

    Also, I kind of want to make a thread for funny images and memes from the thread and put them all there (like there is for the sequel trilogy movies) but I am not sure where to put that. Casino? Random discussion like this?

    Stay away for two days, come back to a MAJOR DECISION all of a sudden! I am glad to see so many people are suggesting we lower the guns on Tink, even if it isn't quite the funniest of routes we could go.
    Okay. Yeah. I see where ya all are coming from. It's just speculation at this point and pretty slim speculation at best.
    I wouldn't mind us getting our own folder in the Casino, to be honest. I think it would fix a lot of headache for the moderators too.

    Oh I know exactly what you mean. I actually had a bit of a run in with a moderator here because he wasn't sure where to move this thread. It wasn't anything unpleasant but you could really tell he was confused about it.

    I am SO making a Doop thread if this happens.

    Anyway, hello everyone! I got recommended this comic by my buddy who's also reading it and it was love at first sight for me. Since THE SEARCH FOR THE ULTIMATE CANTINA even! I love the interactivity and the characters and humor and the community around it a lot. I stayed up on my first night reading the comic only to realize 4h have passed already! It was amazing to me how I was reading through and getting more and more addicted to the story the more I was closer to catching up.. :D

    It hit me that there was actual story here! So I'm hyped as ever for Act 2 and I hope we get to see more of Doop's past (he seem so mysterious for the main character, we don't know as much about him like we do for the others).

    Hahaha, maybe we should ask @Alamact about it. :D

    Welcome to the forum (and the comic too) @skychafer! I was also a latecomer, though if we are being honest I'm starting to feel less like a newbie with every new update. Actually when I think about it, it was almost half a year ago when I joined up, round October or November. Since then, I've kinda shamefully traded BioWare's SWTOR for Alamact's ORPA. I guess the whole new canon thing bought me, I don't know! ^^

    OT: Mass Effect fans, WHERE YOU AT? The new game is amazing and all that hate circlejerk has left me a sad burrito (until I opened the game that is).

    Haven't gotten it just yet, but it's great to hear it's good. :)
    I have a strong suspicion Doop will get even more mysterious before it starts going the other way.

    *puts tinfoil cap on*

    Crackpot prediction: Tink is going to end up becoming Doop's love interest. Because a Twi'lek is too far fetched even for this comic.

    I would rather our main hero forms a strong iconic friendship with a female character instead. Those are very rare and this comic tends to subvert expectations, so its not exactly implausible. :D

    My prediction is that Tink is going to get infatuated with the Saber™, and Missy is going to be endlessly annoyed by that. Saber might not even notice. :D

    I was always under the impression that Missy saw Ratchet as a potential threat and unwanted rival (even way back in chapter 11). Think about it: you find this awesome guy willing to do stuff for you, has a nice butt (the BIGGEST draw obviously) and is seemingly not a sociopath or something, and you're kind of almost there in getting him under your spell. Enter his longtime childhood friend into the picture. Missy is not just annoyed by Ratchet's tomboy behavior, but actually uses that as her casus belli to make her attack on Ratchet's persona justified.

    Missy is pretty much a textbook case of trying to act tough to cover up your insecurities once you're left on your own. Especially when you consider how much she sacrificed when she decided to flee Blueballs (family, friend, lifestyle, culture). She needs something to latch on emotionally or she will get herself drowned, but she is also not sure if she can trust family anymore.

    Nice observation about Ratchet. I agree - and admittedly had sort of forgotten about the whole Missy vs Ratchet thing by now.
    I have a feeling BDSM is soon to become the most useful stat for Darth Saber the Kind.

    Missy is Coming ™

    I have no words. I just have a stupid grin on my face and keep laughing to myself.
    :D

    As for the Saber and Missy thing, I have plenty of words (probably too many) and I completely support Red+Blue. But, the hopeless-romantic, sometimes-sadistic side of me wants to see them never quite get there. I just think that circumstances will never quite let them be where they need to be (physically, emotionally, etc) in order to finally get together. It would be quite the romantic tragedy if they were always just a little bit off.... as in, I don't know, something like:

    1) Saber falls for Missy, but Missy has no real (romantic) interest in Saber. Whether that is due to her own insecurities or she is just not into him is still unknown.
    2) Missy begins to warm to Saber, but mostly in a platonic, "Aww you're cute and harmless" kind of way.
    3) They go separate ways and are apart for a year. Saber misses the Miss, but the Miss doesn't miss back.
    4) Missy answers Saber's plea, which gives Saber hope. Missy still sees him as the "damsel in distress" more than a love interest, but admits it is good to be back around him. She begins to realize how much she missed him, but still keeps that barrier up and won't let anyone in.
    5) Saber begins to give up hope. A new female enters the picture and distracts Saber from his (reluctantly) waning feelings for Missy.
    6) Saber and new female hit it off. Missy is still around, and is defiantly jealous. (Kind of like the Ratchet thing again)
    7) Missy sees how good Saber treats his lady. Missy is secretly swooning.
    8) She can't take it anymore. THE FLOOD GATES ARE ABOUT TO BURST. MISSY WANTS SABER BAD.
    9) Things end between Saber and his woman. Missy has her chance with him now, but Saber is wounded and hesitant to let anything happen with Missy, lest he screw things up with her as well. He can't handle another letdown, and needs her friendship more than anything.
    10) Saber begins to let Missy in. The LAZY AUTHOR finally dispenses with the love story and lets the PLOT kick in, and the two are once more sent to different corners of the galaxy. Missy is somewhat heartbroken, but maintains an illusion of composure.
    11) After an unknown amount of time apart, they again re-unite. Saber has decided to go for it, and wants a relationship with Missy. However, she reveals that she has moved on, and is with someone else now.
    12) Her relationship with said new guy is transparently cold, and she has quite obviously replaced Saber with someone safe, or good for her professionally but not emotionally.
    13) Saber is hurting. HE WANTS MISSY BAD. He senses she still has feelings for him, but she is now spoken for. He, Master of the Classes of Ethics, has never faced such a test.
    14) He respects her decision and stays away. He begins the process of letting go, yet again. Seeing him in emotional turmoil puts Missy in the same state.
    15-99) Rinse, wash, repeat. This cycle (or something similar) could go on forever.

    Of course all but the first couple of these points are speculation and there's far too many other important things going on for any of this to plausibly happen, in my opinion. And, we're just beginning to scratch the surface of it all. But, who knows?? ;)

    DISCLAIMER: THIS SEQUENCE OF EVENTS IN NO WAY HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY OWN EXPERIENCES. NOPE. NONE. AT ALL. PROMISE.
    ......does anyone have a tissue? I, uh... have something in my eye.

    Did Alamact just deliver the greatest most subtle delivery of all time? No wonder the update took so long this weekend!

    My hands are still shaking. Next you're gonna tell me Disney announced The Fallen Knights started pre-production.
