    And so in my head I was going "Shooooooooom! Eeeeerrrrooooom! Zzzzzzmmmmmm!" as KK was flying over. With the occasional hoot and/or holler.

    Merry Christmas, Whitechapel, and to all a good night.

    Thank you Warren, Paul, Ariana and the whole Freakangels crew for giving us this lovely Christmas present.

    Here in the southern hemisphere it's mid-summer. Never-the-less, we have snow forecast for tomorrow. Ah, Tasmania!

    Echoing the previously stated admiration for the smoke from the bike - for some reason it reminds me of Chinese calligraphy. Really, really beautiful.

    Merry Christmas/Blessed Yule/Happy Whatever You Practice to all from a relative newcomer (only started reading about six months ago) who's been quietly observing in these parts since getting hooked on this weekly treat.

    The steam exhaust from that 'chopper is freakin' awesome - I love how it's drawn.

    So, hey, where can I get me one of those upgrades? (I could give Bill Gates a run for his money, if only.... ;)

    Happy Shmolidays, everyone!

    Mr. Duffield - I loved the progressive fence damage on page two. It's little touches like that which make a leisurely viewing of FA so entertaining.

    Mr. Ellis - There's always been an undertone of KK lacking some self-confidence; her reactions to thinking together the bike express it without ever having to call it out. That, with her simultaneous joy at the upgrade and admiration for what it's going to do for Caz, made a skillful and illuminating character moment. Thank you.

    This is the third time Luke's mentioned something wrong with his balls, isn't it? What the heck is going on?
    Phantom pain, IMHO.

    And to whoever it was last episode that guessed the new heli was just thinked together: excellent call!

    Happy holidays to all!

    sorry to interrupt, but has anyone noticed that in this episode KK's face changed a little?
    Her appearance seems to have taken a softer turn. It makes no real difference to me, but I was just wondering if it was just me who thought that.
    (It could be the effects of her new upgrade, of course)

    Happy Holidays :))

    Thank you for the story, Mr. Ellis.
    Thank you for the art, Mr. Duffield, et al..
    And thank you, Ariana, for putting it all together.

    So far, so good on the holiday front. Ask me again on the 1st.

    Taking all bets on how long Luke is going to have that drawing on his head.

    I'm gonna have to say at least twenty more episodes.

    After the last star goes out, after the heat death of the universe, after the last bit of consciousness vaporizes from existence... a final whiny plea courses through the cosmos:

    "She still doesn't like me either does she?"

    chobbers678, I thought so too - I don't know if it means anything but I noticed that straight away.

    Lukes balls hurt because they have been upgraded and are becoming sentient. I predict they will grow to three times their normal size and turn bright blue. They will then begin to speak and will proclaim loudly their name to be "LUKE'S GLORIOUS AVATAR BALLS". At which point Lukes head will shink to the size of an apple and his voice will become so high that only cats can hear it. The cats will then converge in a horde on LUKE'S GLORIUOS,ect and tear them to bloody shreds. That's my theory anyway.

    KK looks a lot more attractive when she isn't such a huge bitch is happy.

    "She still doesn't like me either does she?"

    "Well, Luke, you nearly killed her when you destroyed her cherished bike. Guess how much she likes you"

    Luke seems to me to have been "tweaked" by Miki to the mental age of four. In this case, is that ethical for a doctor, even considering Luke's serious crime?
    • CommentTimeDec 29th 2010
    Is it ethical to mess around with other peoples minds? And when does such behaviour stop being ethical and start being unethical? Where do you draw the line between "good" and "bad"? I guess it all depends on who sets the rules...
    For instance: I know of ancient tribes where it is very normal for a girl of 14 years of age to be given away into marriage. Try to do that here and you will be arrested for child abuse.

    Oh, my God. KK got an engineering upgrade and Miki got a medical upgrade...

    Did Luke get a ball upgrade?
