In my original script, Abbey was going to explain that Paulo can’t do any tricks such as grabbing someone to dress up as him so the monarchs are rescued at the same time.. the minute they notice anything suspicious like that, they’ll just lop off both girls. But my editor (Souppy~~) thought it would be too much information so it was canned for something more generic in the seventh panel.
Is it just me or has David been acting/looking like a girl lately

He sure can tell a story.

“They thought this all through… and it’s all up to you…”
This just sets the mood right there.

Man, whenever I see this, I think Heath Ledger’s Joker. It’s one of those classic “Who’s lives will you save, and who’s will you end?” questions.
Hijack April 18, 2010, 5:50 AM EST.
ya but the hero always wins in those, unless its SAW or batman begins
bored April 27, 2010, 5:50 AM EST.
okaaaay… I think I said it before but who put the rumour in the world that David is innocent and an idiot?
Standard April 27, 2010, 6:21 PM EST.
Even though it’s a dreadful thought of David having spawn of his own running about, he’d tell them some kickass bed-time stories!
Jörg May 10, 2010, 11:17 PM EST.
thats alot of build up for “If you could only save one which would it be” hehehe I love David sometimes.
Rue May 14, 2010, 12:09 AM EST.
C’mon, Paulo, haven’t you seen the first Spider-Man movie?! Save the chick, then web the kids! Perfect plan!
I guess that doesn’t really work unless you’re Spider-Man…but still!
Keejer May 17, 2010, 11:16 PM EST.
awww stupid ultimatums
Silver May 22, 2010, 3:20 AM EST.
That… was a really good story! d(O.O)b

Hai I’m Daisy!
Xaxus July 11, 2010, 4:06 PM EST.
Stop time then Paulo! Or use Chaos Control… Either works!
And once again, David shows his intelligence.
Skykitsune July 29, 2010, 9:57 PM EST.
my predictions are true
j the fourth July 30, 2010, 3:09 PM EST.
None of them are real tacticians, apparently. It’s easy: Grab some of Tessa’s guards and blockade the route between them. Save daisy. Save Tessa. Artillery both opposing strongholds into the ground. 2 saved monarchs, a whole bunch of clobbered badguys.
Ori August 23, 2010, 5:54 AM EST.
Of course, if this were the REAL Kamina he would save both anyway, BY DRILLING HIS OWN PATH!
KilloZapit September 4, 2010, 7:05 AM EST.
It’s like EPR but with fantasy…
JS October 14, 2010, 2:43 AM EST.
…LOL, Princess Daisy…
@ Skykitsune: “Chaos… CONTROL!”
RuBoo October 21, 2010, 8:14 PM EST.
Shouldn’t Luigi save Daisy?
Joe November 14, 2010, 4:11 AM EST.
Yer damn right, Joe.
SushiJaguar November 18, 2010, 7:07 AM EST.
slap david plz.
Meleeman November 25, 2010, 10:51 PM EST.
that ata be the toughest desision paulo will ever make…
Benny December 9, 2010, 12:48 AM EST.
…does anyone else see those black lines?
Pete January 24, 2011, 5:39 AM EST.
I guess if he chooses to save tess, abbey will go after daisy? I dunno.
toddymon February 23, 2011, 12:19 AM EST.
ITS THE LADY OR THE TIGER STORY AGAIN!!!
horray for caps lock. I’m sorry, but that story frick’in blew my mind!! so im gonna be hype about it.
ben.duffa-kover March 7, 2011, 1:19 AM EST.
David got one freakin imagination… I like it
Amy March 18, 2011, 9:17 PM EST.
wow david is tearing paulo apart, but i’d say daisy, she looks so helpless, wait, can’t you just take out the messagers?
pspreader May 8, 2011, 8:14 AM EST.
Well obviously the flashback is terribly inaccurate/never happened.
Because if it did, PAULO WOULD’VE SAID “I’M KAMINA!PAULO, IMPOSSIBLE DOES NOT EXIST”, PUNCHED ABBEY THROUGH SPACE, RESCUED BOTH OF THEM AT THE SAME TIME FROM THAT TEAR IN THE FABRIC OF SPACE WITH ONE HAND AND WITH THE OTHER COMMAND THE HEAVENS TO RAIN DOWN BEAUTIFUL WOMEN. ON FIRE. GREEN FIRE.
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWAH
Ruby May 14, 2011, 9:27 PM EST.
David should be a story-teller to little kids. It’d be hilarious. Muahahaha!
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 20, 2011, 11:14 PM EST.
Love Paulo’s expression in the last panel.
Luigifan September 12, 2011, 11:02 PM EST.
What if Kamina-Paulo does nothing? Neither one is saved, so neither one gets executed. From there: tell each Kingdom its monarch is in trouble, launch a co-op rescue mission, eternal peace. Yay.
FireflyFuneral October 13, 2011, 3:20 AM EST.
Is it any wonder heaven’s wracked with thunder
And all my dreams go under like the pouring rain
The execution day~
Luigifan October 18, 2011, 8:28 PM EST.
Lol, David drops the bomb, and he’s all smiles.
Amazing Lagann December 7, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
Wow I really didn’t expect that from David. David is a heck of a good story teller. Beneath that dumb exterior is a genius.
Ushio February 4, 2012, 2:38 AM EST.
I’ve been thinking…shouldn’t Abbey save Daisy and Paulo save Tess?
Bittersweetlover! February 6, 2012, 7:22 AM EST.
Wow… David has the makings for a good DM. I know I’m really far behind in this series but I hope to see him in that role in a future update. Can you even begin to imagine the epic crap he’d be able to create?
Inn0c3ntGuy April 9, 2012, 12:28 AM EST.
DAVID BEST ROLE PLAYER EVER!
xmetawolf May 15, 2012, 7:52 PM EST.
Wooaaaah, David. Way to give him the Kobiyashi Marou. (Trekkie!!)

Been reading through the archives the last few days, and I feel somehow compelled to comment on this one.
I’m not sure why, but the fact that the artist (or David?!) used Abbey adds an immersing and serious tone to this story within a story and I find myself stirred by the weight of the hypothetical hero’s decision. The reader is aware of Morton’s Fork, but David’s buildup was quite amazing. He might just be smarter than everyone gives him credit for.
I remember the last day of my junior highschool year. As a parting talk, our homeroom teacher (who was an incredible woman) presented the class with a situation: Everyone was trapped in a cave. There is an exit that one person can squeeze though but if he/she were to do so, the cavern will collapse and kill everyone left inside. We were then asked who we were going to allow to leave.
The answers were varied: more impulsive students chose themselves, the lovebirds chose their boy/girlfriends, and many of the others the teacher herself. When the bell rang and the schoolyear ended, our homeroom teacher gave us *her* answer: no-one. Because no life is above another, and that she would give everything for us to be together until the end. Not a single eye in the classroom was left dry…

somehow… paulo’s sunglasses remind me of dirk strider… :I
and thank you for that amazingly heart-warming story david.
invisiblrColoratio. August 22, 2012, 3:12 AM EST.
Wow,david just just wow
damn October 19, 2012, 5:44 AM EST.
So am I the only one who noticed how nicely panel 7 rhymed the whole “question of truth” out?
budPuppy November 2, 2012, 3:56 AM EST.
You could secretly hire an army to save one monarch while you pursue the other. Then, there would at least be /some/ possibility of saving both.
