    Is Friday, is FREEEEEEKANGELS.

    G'morning, Whitechapel. I haves red bull and it makes me brain sorta and also not dead. That's... pretty much the highlight of my week, the not being dead. Well, that and some unseasonably warm weather -- that didn't suck either. Is everyone else not dead?

    I appear not to be dead, unless I'm some electronic ghost echo. Which, sometimes, sounds like an alright existence.

    I'm not dead! But the weather and my shitwhore landlord are doing their best to cure that. Tonight... I drink!

    Nice episode, I'm enjoying the increasing complexity of the series, and I'm loving the characters, they're all so... fully fledged... Paul is money as always. Fantastic work.

    I like that Arkady's teleporting isn't accompanied by flashes of light, smoke and sound. She's there, then she's not.

    And I especially like that the fact she can do it really freaks the others out. Fucksticks indeed.

    Not dead, but currently medicated as I've spent the week hoiking up vivid green stuff off my chest.
    So today's Freakangels an even bigger highlight of the week than it normally is, I love Alice's expression on page 3 and go Arkady!

    I feel like I am getting there what with the shitloads of revision, perhaps Red Bull is the way forward. The Ellis-Duffield alliance has very thoughtfully produced an excellent procrastination opportunity though, thank you! Loving the Arkady teleport.

    I'm crazy, but I'm not that crazy.

    I, too, am glad there's no smoke and brimstone, but Arkady would still be cute if she had a tail and went "BAMF" everywhere she went.

    Or not.

    So like the last 4-5 weeks of my life has been inside an hour in 'Angel land. And did someone just hand one of those Fucksticks a side-by-side shotgun? Wake up brain. It is time for your daily dose of 4 hour studio.

    Not dead yet! We'll see if I survive three and a half hours of teaching.

    I think my favorite character changes every week. This week, it's Arkady.
    • CommentTimeJan 16th 2009
    God, I love Arkady too

    personally I feel like I'm dead and could sleep like I was dead if given a chance, but my corporate overlords demand sacrifice, and my well being and sleep is standing in for virgins currently

    I think for me it's Alice still. Her expression is half "Oh, wow that is so cool!" and "You mean I climbed up those stairs for nothing?"

    I love that there's so much conflict between them, it feeds the story so well...
    • CommentTimeJan 16th 2009
    Also, should I be concerned that they're all about to leave Whitechapel (and Alice) undefended with Luke still wandering around pissed off at everyone? Granted that Arkady could probably teleport back and fry his brain like an egg, but still...

    yet again. warren and paul, kick arse and take names. this issue in some strange way finally put the 'freak' in freakangels. outstanding is every aspect. all of the angels are showing attributes and personally that appeals on several levels. i have a feeling we are headed towards a 'kill'em all, let God sort them out' moment. it should be glorious.

    me, i'm alive. the radiation and chemo is starting to kick some but i am hanging in there.

    Well, they are 23. I'm 27 and I still don't have my shit together. I can't imagine being responsible for the end of the world and then having to deal with 11 other people that are exactly like me in that we all can do just about anything we want.

    Fucksticks indeed.

    I love Alice's expression on page 3

    I'm crazy, but I'm not that crazy.

    Pretty much sums it up for me. Great episode this week!

    I have recovered from Norovirus, now I just have to wait for the medication to wear off.

    "... what we could do if we stayed angry and stupid for long enough."

    for me, this is the thesis of the episode (and possibly the moral of this arc), and applicable as much to us pre-apocalyptic "normal" humans as to our purple-eyed friends in whitechapel.

    one of my biggest issues/goals for this new year is staying calm and cool, and somewhat rational. I live with my mom and brother, and have a tendency to lose patience with them very easily. I was trying to explain to my little bro how I'm really impatient with myself and I'm just projecting or taking it out on them sometime... but yeah... we could all use a little introspective time pondering the consequences of our personal and collective anger and stupidity, agreed?

    [read in dramatic cartoon announcer voice]

    next time, on FreakAngels: "Doctor Miki gives the rest of the Angels a lesson in peaceful, post-apocalyptic conflict resolution, FreakAngels style!"

    @Will Couper: if that's a reference to the Library, you're my new friend.

    : Knock knock.
    : Who's there?
    : Doctor.
    : Doctor who?



    Just me? Okay. :)

    Important Question: Is Arkady wearing underpants?
  7.  (4747.19)
    for some reason 'Kady makes me feel like everything is going to be allright...even in real life
  8.  (4747.20)
    I like Arkady very much, but I think Mikki still makes this one for me, as she reminds the group that when they do whatever they want things can go badly.

    As for me, my week sucked unbelievably. And I'm going to be in the mountains for the weekend so I won't be able to rant for the Saturday Open Mike Night (but at least I'll be able to read about everyone later). Alright, time for me to get to work as my week continues to suck unbelievably.
