Veronica’s Commentary

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.

“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.

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!

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!

Stop time then Paulo! Or use Chaos Control… Either works!
And once again, David shows his intelligence.

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.

Of course, if this were the REAL Kamina he would save both anyway, BY DRILLING HIS OWN PATH!

wow david is tearing paulo apart, but i’d say daisy, she looks so helpless, wait, can’t you just take out the messagers?

Well obviously the flashback is terribly inaccurate/never happened.

Why?

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.

David should be a story-teller to little kids. It’d be hilarious. Muahahaha! XD

Love Paulo’s expression in the last panel. XD

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.

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. :)

I’ve been thinking…shouldn’t Abbey save Daisy and Paulo save Tess?

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? 8-D

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…

So am I the only one who noticed how nicely panel 7 rhymed the whole “question of truth” out?

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.
