    Well, there is DEFINITELY a better way to go about upgrading the package without each of them shooting themselves in the head...

    It makes sense that Conner didn't/couldn't upgrade Arkady, seeing as she's already a couple of 'boosts' ahead of the rest of them. Even so, it does make me wonder if they'll be able to 'push' each other to higher levels later on, once they've gotten used to their packages, or if this is something rather special to Conner's situation and personality.

    It DOES surprise me a bit that Arkady hasn't noticed this something coming, whatever it may be. Seeing as how she can apparently see through the entire planet and whatnot, I mean. But then, the poor dear is fairly constantly distracted for one reason or another.

    So for this week, the officially buffed up 'Angels are: Arkady, Mark, Luke, Conner, Jack, Kait, Kirk, Karl, KK, and Caz. I'm assuming that the same thing is happening to Sirkka, and Miki, but we'll know for sure come next week. Or the week after that probably, it looks like.

    Am I the only one looking forward to seeing how this sequence reads in print? I can't be, can I?

    I'm alright but I'm finding it hard to believe it's actually October. I mean, wtf. I'm also now really looking forward to seeing how this sequence reads in print. Because I am one confused monkey.

    All I can think of when they say "upgrades" is the Cybermen from Doctor Who...

    Ok Mr. Ellis, shoot down all of my theories in one week. Go right ahead.
    Oh, wait. You just did.

    Let's hope they can recover from their upgrades soon enough to deal with whatever Alice is looking at.

    I'm knackered. Moved house last week to the edge of London/borders of Essex (halfway to Warren's house). Getting used to the new longer commute, new mattress, Tube trains 20 yards from the bedroom window and general different noises in the new house, and lack of self medication to help me sleep. This weekend we're going back to the old place to tidy up and get ready to sell it. I need to win the lottery this weekend.

    because something is coming.

    What? What's coming!?! Dammit, Mr Ellis, you really are getting good with this format. Suspense is killing me. Art is beautiful as always.
    Still, What? Another of Mark's plans coming to fruition. Something else entirely? Will have to wait.

    Speaking of which 4 months, 3 weeks, 4 days, 11 hrs, 34 mins and counting. I miss you beer.

    Oh My; 'Something Wicked This Way Comes'

    Hanging in there. Life continues and the ground is stable.

    I'm really surprised by how many of the Angels completely disregard and underestimate the intelligence and abilities of their siblings. Oh yeah; They're teenagers, aren't they?

    Ominous 'kite' in the sky? Please, please let it be a zeppelin. It would make up for lack of motorcycle helicopter.

    Such delicious suspense! And Connor...well, it's really a surprise how smart it turned out to be!
    My compliments to Warren and Paul for regaling us their marvelous art!

    I am okay, slightly sore-ish ears which I will ignore as I am to spend teh weekend with wine and cigarettes and goodgood friend making plans to take over the world one library at a time.

    Also: Connor FTW, and some more yee and squee.

    I wonder if Luke will be upgraded, too?

    Ive heard of shareware but this is ridiculous. Seriously though, I was wondering where it was gonna go now that Mark was dealt with. Of course, how could I have missed it, there had to be another Big Bad on the horizon. Just the hours I'm going to waste imagining what it could be....well I gotta have SOMEthing to do at work. Great job as usual! Nice Timbuk 3 reference there.

    As for me, just got paid, life will be AWESOME for about two days until I pay all my bills and then get back to "shit I'm broke" mode. As usual here in Northern California, the summer has decided to continue until late October. All this week we have had temperatures of no less than 98 degrees with clear skies. This is why I live here. I couldn't stand living in a perpetually rainy country, even if it is more interesting.

    @Jack the Rapper - I think Jack and Alice did a remarkably sound job of giving him his upgrade.

    Sweet, upgrades from beyond!

    I love Connor's changing expressions on page 1, they're great. Also loved his 'I have a plan.' Great episode overall!

    As for my week.. Probably the worst of my life so far and doesn't seem to get any better. But there's always hope.

    The russians are coming.

    Damn, I didn't expect Connor to pull that little surprise. Can the Freakangels keep upgrading on the package indefinitely, or is there a limit to what they can get out of it?

    My week was dominated by getting all the right gears into place to pull off a small 50th birthday party for a dear friend. The party happened with very minor hitches, and the friend was pleased, which was the important thing. My regret, which is not shared by my waistline, was that I committed an unfortunate Crime Against Chocolate by forgetting to save an extra piece of a nicely intense Chocolate On Chocolate cake.
