    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    The last few episodes of FA remind me <i>exactly</i> of 'The Sorrows of Young Werther', pubished in 1774. All I'm saying is that Warren is pretty lucky Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is long in his grave. Sturm und Drang anyone? Right, right. Doobidoob.

    <b><i>''The atmosphere was heavy; and the ladies expressed their fears of an approaching storm, as masses of low black clouds were gathering in the horizon. I relieved their anxieties by pretending to be weather-wise, although I myself had some apprehensions lest our pleasure should be interrupted.''</b></i>

    Well the FA are certainly getting <i>their</i> pleasure interrupted, oh yes they are.

    Hi, Ariana. Hope you are well. Good episode. Shit just got real. I was worried KK would crash and die. Maybe Warren is saving her for later. Sadist.

    I'm tired. But also hungry for mayhem.

    *screams*
    WHAT HAS KK SEEN?!

    WHO IS BLOCKING KAIT?!

    WILL MIKI GET TO KIRK FAST ENOUGH FOR HIM TO INSTANT HEAL AND START HUNTING DOWN LUKE?!

    NOOOO... why next week.... why....

    And all the rain art is gorgeous... =)

    Hey Whitechapel!
    I'm loving the action this week and would just like to chime in that Shitbiscuits is an awesome word and would be loads of fun on some merch!
    Also, job hunting is the worst job ever. Thanks for some freakangels to cheer me up!
    Also again, Kait is totally getting jumped in that house and I can't wait to see her wail on whatever dumb sap who thinks he has the upper hand!
  2.  (6865.46)
    Aw, this one was just brilliant!
    Great ending, great choices for Luke, great pacing for all the characters.
    Opens up a few questions about their powers: can Luke consciously block his location from the others (does he need a tin hat)?
    Can Kirk heal himself, or is the damage too deep to try alone?
    If the FA can read minds, you'd think they'd be able to sense the proximity of another person... what could be sneaking up on Kait if not another FA?
    Unless the pariah has returned...
    I'm sure most of those questions have already been discussed, this is just the first time they've been the focus of my attention.
    I enjoyed the heck out of this one.

    this is getting so exciting heh....

    well, I had a couple of crazy weeks.
    I attended Scarefest this year as a regular old ticket buyer instead of a vendor...it was actually kinda nice because i wasn't tethered to one spot for the whole day. I was tickled to meet Doug Bradley, and got to see him shmoozing up some young thing who took him to dinner at the food court. I also got my step daughters Mezzits horror figure three pack signed by Gunnar Hanson this year. Last year it was Kane Hodder for the lil jason figure, and next year Robert Englund will attend so we'll be able to complete her collectible.
    On top of all that I spent money on art and a star chart. apparently, I was a mongolian warrior, egyptian scribe, rich japanese foot bound wife, european royalty, civil war era gentry, religious leaders and a few native americans....
    it also kept saying I was nearly a genius and an athletic god. what's funny about that...well...not really funny, but it makes me laugh...or cry..or something...but my brain is totally lopsided. When I was an infant, deep in the black forest of germany my parents had a retard moment and left their itty bitty new baby lying under a giant metal gas lantern hanging in the tent. Wind blew. Lamp Fell. Head got smashed. they rushed their little bundle of head dented horror to the hospital and the doctors, after calming my parents down, popped the dent back out. So now I've got this huge cresent shaped scar over the left side of my brain, and I suck really badly at a few of the left brain applications. As for the super athleticism...when I was a kid, before my arthritis kicked in, I could keep up a pace of twenty miles an hour for a decent stretch running...now I get tired walking across walmart-(...we...do have the biggest one in the states...apparently). So ...Ha at starcharts..it basically told me I'd be awesome and rich and powerful if I hadn't been afflicted with arthritis and stupid parents.

    So on to the second part of my adventure. I got lost in Hazard Kentucky. Do I really have to say more? really?...well..I will...
    Hazard is a third world country/city in the far eastern nook of KY. It's also the Oxycotin capital of the world, and a place where if you pull into the wrong drive way to turn around at, you'll get shot. on a saturday night, at about one thirty in the morning, a half hour after i went to bed, my ex girlfriend calls in a teary panic saying she needed us to come pick her up from her grandparents house, that all hell has broken loose, and her parents have called the cops on her, she was physically hurt by her brother, and her dad was threatening to kill her dogs...ya know typical crazy white trash stuff. So I brew some coffee and we Google map the directions...well, the directions were fucktarded, and we ended up loosing about an hour and a half getting lost on the way to hazard...then I realized that I was supposed to be going in the direction of my mom's house...also disheartening, but at least I wasn't lost anymore. On top of this, the fog was so thick I couldn't see ten feet in front of my car so the quickest I could go was about fourty for most of the trip. So I travel the hundred or so miles to Hazard, then try to call my ex. We find out she's on a road that sounded like another road no where near where she was, so our directions (which she couldn't give us...she sucks at directions) were gleened from crack heads and frightening night shift clerks, who all gave us different directions. At one point we ended up on a really bad road, where, when we asked directions at a half way decent looking house, my husband heard a shot gun being cocked on the other side of the door. At one point we used a payphone at a meth lab/garage. We knew it was a meth lab, because apparently if there's a television left in the window with static playing, at night, it means they are brewing, and will have a fresh batch in the morning. We learned this bit of info from my ex after we eventually found her.
    So we roam around Hazard until nine thirty in the morning, when we eventually find the proper road and make it to her grandparents, which was situated down a barely graveled little lane that tore the fuck out of my car. So we got her, luckily the cops don't wake up until after ten there apparently, and got her out of there. Oh, and I almost hit so many animals there. Chickens and dogs and cats just lying in the road...
    We enventually made it back home and I slept for around sixteen hours, only waking long enough to eat something now and then. Oh and the next day, she had to go back to college, so I had to drive her back to richmond after that.
    It wouldn't have even been an issue and she couldn't have just gotten in her own car and drove off, but she had a few abcessed teeth at the time and was on pain killers so she wasn't allowed to drive. sheesh....
    so I hate hazard ky. and I hate Bubby Combs...the owner of this little gas station beside the road. Everyone kept telling me to find this damned bubby combs gas station, and eventually, after passing it a million time, I pull in to use the pay phone and I see Bub y Co bs BP scratched on the door.
    FUCK YOU HAZARD.

    ahem...
    have a nice week folks heh...

    This week brought me something more like full-time employment for a little while. That means sometimes I am late to the FA episode.

    Damn.
    I never get excited about cliffhangers - they are part of the story and the story will do its thing without me getting all hot and bothered about it - but holy happy nervousanxiouscurious wants MOAR!

    It is a good feeling.

    Thanks, all, for a wonderful way to start my day in the rain and the shooting and the pain and things going to get oh so much less sweet and fuzzy...

    Dear Whitechapel,

    Is there something wrong with me that I have yet to bat an eyelash to most of the evil prick bullshit Luke has done, but yelled at the computer when he shot the 'copter?
  4.  (6865.51)
    I believe she is about to hit a Glass building in the style of Matrix 1. Most likely due to some sort of altitude problem due to holes in the steam tank causes by projectiles fired at her from a gunman most likely stationed somewhere on the ground. that's what I got ...I feel like the guy from loose change.

    And this whole time I thought Luke wasn't applying himself constructively. Look at how much he comes up with when he gets off his ass and decides to do something. I still wonder if he's responsible for the artificial storm, or if it's ...someone else.
    Just don't fuck with Kait, Mr Ellis, please; she's my favourite!!

    Oh dear.

    It's a shame Kait has to die, I honestly thought she was the only FreakAngel paranoid enough to get by in their world. With Kait about to be murdered/mind controlled, KK falling out of the sky, Kirk whining like a baby about the intense pain from his snapped femurs, and Luke actually feeling empowered, I can't wait to see how many more people get put in the crosshairs before the situation gets resolved.

    Man, I'd just die if we have a skip week this friday. I mean, I'd better get a gun. Just like Luke. Than Warren would NEVER ever ever ever have a skip weep again.

    "Shitbiscuits" pretty much sums up how my week's been - but I can comfort myself that no matter how bad my week's been, it's nothing compared to how shit-tastic KK's is about to be.

    Bit of a lurker here for the first time.

    Loved the art this episode, from the little shock waves of a thousand tiny raindrops in Kait's torture pit to the way KK's clothes stuck in the rain and wind. I don't see why it would be unusual to fly in shit weather, regular helicopters do all the time. It wouldn't be pleasant for KK, but if her rotor hadn't been shot at, I would say doable at least.

    If Mark is the secret behind the fish eye lens, whether it is him directly or his little minions, I'm more excited to see what Karl is going to get up to than anyone else. If you recall, way back at the beginning, Kirk and Karl discussed how they were the two that went after Mark when everyone had banished him, and decided amongst themselves that he needed to die. I think it was Karl who shot Mark, but I can't recall 100%. I wonder why they felt that strongly? That also begs the question how Mark survived a fatal shot from a freakangel, but at the same times gives a person a little hope when Luke is running around sniping at people. Plus, Karl is in the immediate vicinity of Arkady, which gives him a free train ticket to wherever he can convince her to go.

    Friday can not come fast enough.

    I'm so very happy I don't have to wait 1 month (or more) to read more. There are so many directions this can go, from "Arkady uses her teleport ninja style, plucks the KK from her beloved chopper, then grabs Luke and drops him in front of a loudspeaker playing that "I like a move it move it" song on loop" to "Luke shows he's not such a bad guy (for a rapist) by telekinetically pushing KK into the water, thus saving her life (that he'd just gotten through endangering). Unfortunately, this forces him to let his guard down long enough for Kait to unleash some malikto/tiltowait type of horror on him. After burying the scraps and some of the ash they swept up, they start a lively debate on whether Kait needs to get laid or perhaps introduced to heroin."

    Would kind of suck if it was a "we've replaced the comic you love with this order form full of new swag" week.
