    Put simply, Arc is making friends. Also, there's a reference to something I know only HalfTangible will get. I do actually have that shirt IRL.

    Comic 968 is up.

    But why is simulation Rand the same age as Arc??? All the more weirder now, since I think this is the first time EVER we've seen anything of his actual non-demonic-imposter family?

    Unless... could this actually be the real Rand? (Well, 'real' is kinda subjective, but the one from our world anyway). No idea how that would make any sense, but we haven't seen him since he got blasted by Kalros, which feels kind of suspicious now that I think about it.

    On an unrelated note I'm not sure what it says about me that the last panel triggered the biggest mental 'awwwwww' response.

    I don't think of Rand and Arc as the same age, here. Arc would be 11 months old, while Rand is probably around 3 years. And yes, this is the first you've seen of Rand's family. Sort of. Whether or not this is the real Rand, I will neither confirm nor deny.

    Comic 969!

    Huh. I'm actually more or less sold on simulation Marnia and Savaddor (dunno about everybody, though, since we don't know how far it goes) being 'real' in the sense of an actual conscious entity, but seeing her actually argue for it kinda makes me suspicious given where the simulation came from.

    (Also, I didn't comment on the last one because I'm running out of ways to say 'awwwwww', which is not intended as criticism)

    This simulation is inevitably going to end with explosions and/or lasers and I just don't see how we're going to get there.

    The answer is probably in the title.

    Funny you should mention that because I already know how it's going to end. That's right, it's planned out!

    Comic 971. This, er, probably won't make too much sense, but it'll make more sense, later.

    Comic 972! I tried making Arc's (and Savaddor's) text lighter-color to make it easier to see.

    That's part of why I've been doubting it is just a Lotus-Eater Machine. I'm really starting to think that this is functionally a 'real' (if simulated world), or at least as real as Hypt.

    It really is more readable. I had grown used to the other blue and I kind of miss it, but I'm convinced this is for the better.

    It'll probably stay, it's a lot easier to read, to me. The text box borders are the same color, of course.

    I... just... what?

    (I have to say that I didn't find the deeper blue hard to read at all, but the new color doesn't bother me either).

    I'm not sure it's still slice of life if the life is that of a lizard/robot couple raising a baby artificial dragon.

    (On the other hand, I suppose one might argue that's the best kind of slice of life.)

    I've put enough thought into the world of the simulation that I could justify it being a full-fledged AU. There's two divergences from the main timeline that's triggered it:

    1) The Emperor is absent.
    2) Dark Star was never created.

    For the purposes of being vague i'll leave what stems from these divergences up to your imagination, but events occur differently because of it. One of which being that Marnia and Savaddor form a romantic relationship and marry. I call it the Arctura!Verse

    Comic 974.

    Okay, so I guess that wasn't the real Rand in the simulation. (Though I'm still super confused by the thing with his age).

    ...so what's Torn doing out of Hypt? I think the Kalros they were fighting died in the massed eye-laser barrage, but it still seems kind of sudden. I can't help but suspect shenanigans.

    The simple answer? They all died in the laser barrage.

    ...dammit, I just realized that I was so happy to see the return of Actual Shakespearian Marnia (like I've said, the Arcverse version is kind of marred by the fact that I don't really like the 'robot' font in normal speech bubbles) that I didn't even really register that Targnillian Marnia is gone for good.

    Unfortunately, some good things must come to an end. I'll be sure to have more panels of Marnia in glasses drinking things to make up for it.

    On your side for now. He's actually on your side for now, Rand.

    Not sure who he could be thinking of that qualifies as a professional Kalros-killer; the best candidate so far in the comic would probably be... Kalros himself, actually.
