Hmmm, transition.

Dang Dolly, that was a terrible dodge!

Annnnd Rose is on stage!
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:01 AM edit delete reply

yeah she kinda boned her roll here :D
Haegan2005 13th Oct 2014, 5:51 PM edit delete reply

Han Solo level epic fail roll! Did he ever successfully con an imperial anything on screen?

Miraiko, I think, will be attempting to recruit Julia.
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

I dont think so :D
CptKerion 13th Oct 2014, 9:34 PM edit delete reply
Well, he did con elements of the 501st legion on screen as well as other imperial security guys, multiple times. All aboard the Death Star. I count that as an achievement.
Haegan2005 13th Oct 2014, 11:00 PM edit delete reply

prison scene guard room, death star, epic fail roll to con...

I am not sure if I would consider the hiding places on the falcon as a con? Granted it has been awhile since I saw the movie so my memory is probably not as accurate as it should be!

They did successfully walk around in ST armor for awhile.

In "Return of the Jedi" he conned the Imperials into opening the door to the shield generator. I'd call that a successful con. :-)
Haegan2005 17th Oct 2014, 9:32 AM edit delete reply

Okay, That one I definitely agree on!
Stormwind13 12th Oct 2014, 9:05 PM edit delete reply

Lots of beautiful images here, CentComm.

And the sudden shift is interesting. Miraiko looks good there. But something is up.
velvetsanity 12th Oct 2014, 9:34 PM edit delete reply

Miraiko belongs to Julia, who apparently they're supposed to contact. It wouldn't surprise me if either Rose is taking a chance in getting Julia involved or else Miraiko is intended to intercept their contact message.
DLKmusic 12th Oct 2014, 9:45 PM edit delete reply
I'm pretty sure that Julia's about to find out that Miraiko works for someone else besides her.
Sheela 13th Oct 2014, 5:40 AM edit delete reply

Well, it also seems like Mirako's work is about to put her into contact with Dolly ?

Maybe she'll have a new Mommy soon. :)
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:01 AM edit delete reply

oh yes .. something is very much up :D
Boren 12th Oct 2014, 10:22 PM edit delete reply
This is kinda out of left field but right now is one of the times I really wish I could draw, somehow I'm envisioning Dolly and Ceci having a random run in with the Doctor...
velvetsanity 12th Oct 2014, 10:41 PM edit delete reply

Doctor Who?
mjkj 13th Oct 2014, 1:54 AM edit delete reply


Exactly :D
Sheela 13th Oct 2014, 5:17 AM edit delete reply

Oh look, an old police box, no need for that here, the prince's praetorians got things perfectly under control already. :)

*stuffs the Tardis into a garbage truck*

And voilá, the street is nice and clean again. :)
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:04 AM edit delete reply

Hmm somehow im thinking the Doctor would have plenty to do.. and im sure Lynn wouldn't object to a sonic screwdriver or a time machine..
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:03 AM edit delete reply

hey anyone can draw... It just depends on if you take time with it :D but im wonderng what you would draw now :D
Draginbeard 12th Oct 2014, 11:10 PM edit delete reply

Oof, 12 hours might be asking for more time than you have in the black palace, Dolly!
Sheela 13th Oct 2014, 5:41 AM edit delete reply

Nah, she'll make time fly by, I'm sure.
Time goes fast when you have fun, after all. :)
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:04 AM edit delete reply

hehe well the clock is ticking.. :D
Dragonrider 12th Oct 2014, 11:18 PM edit delete reply

next page could be interesting.
Stormwind13 13th Oct 2014, 7:02 AM edit delete reply

I think MOST pages from here on out will be interesting, Dragonrider. I mean, people are THERE. Action will have to be commencing soon!
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:05 AM edit delete reply

well hopefully they are ALL interesting :D
mjkj 13th Oct 2014, 1:58 AM edit delete reply


Yayyy for Miraiko *hugs her*

Seems like the message got through.

Why give it twelve minutes? Why not fifteen or twenty? ;)

The next updates must be quite interesting - maybe even a switch to Leo or Lynn.

*looking forward to the next updates*

Sheela 13th Oct 2014, 5:18 AM edit delete reply

I think she meant 12 hours.
velvetsanity 13th Oct 2014, 6:15 AM edit delete reply

That's how I interpreted it, too
Stormwind13 13th Oct 2014, 7:00 AM edit delete reply

Ah. That actually makes a lot of sense. A useful amount of time for someone to respond in, but not TOO horribly long. I was kind of like mjkj, I couldn't figure out why Dolly would randomly pick 12 minutes. Of course, it was late and my brain wasn't functioning its best.
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:05 AM edit delete reply

yeah Dolly meant 12 hours here :D
mjkj 20th Oct 2014, 4:44 AM edit delete reply

Ok, thanks :)
Phil 13th Oct 2014, 7:06 AM edit delete reply
For some reason, I thought Rose was meaning her to contact either Kali or Noctis.
Of the two, seems like the recent foreshadowing favours Noctis
Phil 13th Oct 2014, 7:12 AM edit delete reply
Then again, I suppose it would make for more dramatic tension if Noctis stayed in bloodhound mode for a while.
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

dunno .. Kali could be involved
Stever 13th Oct 2014, 7:30 AM edit delete reply

It seems like waiting around isn't her thing ;D
Stormwind13 13th Oct 2014, 8:50 AM edit delete reply

Actually Stever, Dolly is USED to waiting around. She is a guardian, a sentinel after all. That is where we were introduced to her in fact, waiting around.

In this case though, Dolly doesn't want her 'daughter' in bad peoples' hands any longer than the absolute MINIMUM. And that is already LONG past in her mind, I mean Lynn has been gone past the promised 48 hours after all. :-) Lynn is getting SO grounded by Calliope! :-D
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 10:07 AM edit delete reply

Storm seems to have a decent handle on Dollys persona here and yes. a lot of Dollys "job" involves waiting around.
Sheela 13th Oct 2014, 1:05 PM edit delete reply

Dolly can be patient when she wants to.

... right now, she really doesn't want to!
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 5:14 PM edit delete reply

no she really does not want to be patient at ALL..
Sheela 14th Oct 2014, 8:28 AM edit delete reply

Unfortunately, she also cannot afford being reckless ... just yet.
Stormwind13 13th Oct 2014, 1:42 PM edit delete reply

Hey does Miraiko's outfit remind anyone ELSE of Tokyo Rose's outfit? That is NOT the normal (what is normal for Miraiko, anyhow) outfit for her, I think. :-) Never seen that particular outfit on Miraiko, but sure reminds me of Tokyo Rose's normal outfit.

I wonder if Tokyo Rose has her own line of fashion? :-D Power outfits for the powerful.
DLKmusic 13th Oct 2014, 3:51 PM edit delete reply
To think, I almost missed the voting incentive... Ladies and gentlemen, Rose and Centcomm have presented us with "Noctis and Medusa". Feel free o admire all you want.

Sheela 13th Oct 2014, 4:07 PM edit delete reply

You mean Noctis and Nox ?
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 4:14 PM edit delete reply

Well her name was Madusa at one point the image is named Noctis and Medusa :D so he techicly is correct :D
DLKmusic 13th Oct 2014, 6:02 PM edit delete reply
what I learned in ART class....

look at the bottom of frame for metal plaque that has the name of the painting and artist...
Sheela 14th Oct 2014, 8:29 AM edit delete reply

Wait, what ?

My time misspent in art class has failed me!
Skweeee 13th Oct 2014, 4:40 PM edit delete reply

It feels like there may be an action 'front' moving in.
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 5:14 PM edit delete reply

Soon ( tm)
Sheela 14th Oct 2014, 8:30 AM edit delete reply

Combat Clippy : Please punch a face for the latest forecast. :D
Twistedfro 13th Oct 2014, 4:47 PM edit delete reply

hmmmm...I sense trouble a brewin'
Centcomm 13th Oct 2014, 5:15 PM edit delete reply

yep .. you would be sensing correctly..
Sheela 14th Oct 2014, 8:30 AM edit delete reply

Well .. TeeDee *is* about to be in town.
Stormwind13 14th Oct 2014, 10:34 AM edit delete reply

About to roll into town like an out of control steamroller you mean, Sheela?
DLKmusic 14th Oct 2014, 2:30 PM edit delete reply
Awwww.... TeeDee wouldn't hurt a fly!!!!! Every human within a 5 mile radius, maybe, but a fly? Never!!!!
Stormwind13 14th Oct 2014, 5:37 PM edit delete reply

Depends on if the fly bit her new (more senses) body or not, DLK. If it did... there would be WAR! TeeDee might wipe out flies on the entire planet!
Mark_L_A 2nd Jun 2015, 12:25 AM edit delete reply

I keep coming back to Dolly's face in panel 4. It' almost like a look of fear/frustration/exasperation. All mixed together.

She can't relax, she can't make a slip, she can't use burst to talk to CeCi privately. She looks almost like she feels like a cornered rat.

And she doesn't like it, one bit.
