    It's Friday, it's FREAKANGELS, in which the cliffhanger ends. HA HA or does it? (No, it doesn't).

    Morning Whitechapelies. You just don't even wanna know how much more plague-ridden I got between last Friday and now. Suffice to say I'm feeling much as I did last Friday, just on the other end of the plague-cycle, ohgodIhope. Everyone else all right?

    Don't kill off Arkady! She's my favourite!

    Mass Effect 2 came through the post yesterday. Life is officially awesome. I was tempted to take a sick day in order to save the galaxy, but thought better of it.

    Good morning Ariana, Whitechapel and all. I hope the plague clears up and you're feeling better soon.

    Mr Ellis appears to have got in a job lot of cliff on the cheap from somewhere and seems intent on using it up before it goes off.
    How much more does he have and will my poor old ticker survive the tension until he's finished toying with it so cruelly?

    OMG!!! Stop doing that!! Driving me crazy!


    Sorry to hear about sick days :(
    After coughing since November I really feel for all the sicklings out there :/
    Been moving this week though. First time I get a place all to me own, no roomates except for Bowser the cat. So really looking forward to finish the move tonight and getting settled.

    Happy Friday everyone!

    Excellent.. slightly less complicated than my plan which involved two teleports. Note that Arkady has to hook her foot under the gutter and push in order to catch up with KK, nicely observing Newtons laws of motion.

    Alas, my plan would have worked better since Arkady would have caught KK from below, and KKs bum is probably softer than her head ... well, for a given value of "better". Obviously not better for narrative tension. Way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!

    Ouch!

    Warren doesn't beleive in making life simple for us does he? I pity those tradewaiting on this as the tension won't be anything like the same.

    As for me, woke up this AM with awful stomach ache, which thankfully, considering my plans for tonight and the weekend, seems to have abated.

    Back to work...

    OK, I am convinced Warren has a secret desire to drive us ALL; totally bonkers. Another excelent outing where we wait an entire week to consume just a mere few seconds of life for our band of angels. Good stuff to all involved and I appreacite your efforts.

    My week and year so far has not been plague filled, health wise as Ariana's, but my badevents filled January just sucks. So far this year, I have had my cat killed by dogs, my Jack Dempsey (read as a fish) die. This past Monday my house was broken into and they got my TV and laptop. Grrrrrr, please; February has got to be better.

    Another episode where 2.6 seconds pass...

    I love this comic.

    The deluge of people going ballistic about Arkady should be interesting to watch this week.

    As for myself, I got to work yesterday and was informed I'll soon be unemployed. Also, the temperature has been hovering around zero degrees F all week.

    GYAH - why do you do this to us? XD XD
    I know, I know. Because it's good storytelling, that's why - and we love you for it, honest ^_^
    Can't wait for next week...again!

    A perfect episode.

    I'm working on something for Weaponizer at the moment*, and Freakangels is a key example I'm going to mention. And it's because of issues like this.

    Terrible week personally for me. But write to understand and climb to forget. I'm about to go to the climbing wall.

    At least one good thing is that couldn't possibly ever be as many cliffhangers as there are readers!
    (or could there?)
    0084: Way to twist it at the end...

    Ariana- Sorry you're still sick. What was it again, the Mongolian Purple Spam Flu ?
    Maybe when time speeds back up to normal you will recover more rapidly.

    I was wondering if Arkady has to use her hand to jump with people or if she could have stuck out her foot for KK to grab? I know, in a situation like that, instinct would tell you to reach with your hands, but all Arkady said was that they had to be touching. I hope she's ok. Seemed like she might have knocked herself for a loop by headbutting KK on the way down, and it might have caused her to involuntarily jump down to the bottom of the water.

    Of course, I've had way too much coffee and I'm going to be run run running all weekend long and I actually need to leave right now so bye.

    Just so we're clear - I have not posted here before that I remember, but I have been reading since the beginning, and absolutely LOVE the whole effort. Kudos to all involved, and thank you so much for the delivery mechanism and the risks you have taken with it.

    That said - the pacing has really gotten on my nerves. I understand cliff hangers, and serials, and lord knows Dick Tracy used to deliver less in their three panels per day - but, even if it requires going bi-monthly or something - could you maybe cover more than 2.6 seconds per installment? so that we get more clued in to more plot and characterization and story during each installment?

    Although, in all fairness, the artwork on the "slow" (or is it "quick"?) episodes, such as this one, has been amazing.

    Coming up.

    Add my scream to the chorus of "oh my God Arkady wasn't supposed to get hurt in this!"

    Answers the question of whether she was going to teleport around and get everyone else out of danger though...

    BONK!

    And on top of that she has been for shadowing her own death at the top of her lungs. And because I am listening to U2's NY and I live in NY I am wishing this thing took place here. Except that NY is played out, London as a resurgence is fine with me...

    I think a lot of film editors could learn much studying (or at least taking note) of page six, panels 2—3. Awesome.

    Today? Wading through the jaw-dropping sub moronic chatter in the wake of Salinger's sayonara. On the radio this morning all persons being paid real money to talk into the microphone confessed to having never ever read Catcher. Listeners were encouraged to call and describe the book. A lady rang in and proceeded to describe Lord of the Flies.

    Kill me. Just get the gun.
