you’re -> your

NotFred

Panel three, Danni’s last balloon: shouldn’t it be “your” instead of “you’re”?

Alex

I am really curious about the solution Danni thought of. She probably doesn’t know about Kleya’s fans saying “You’d be such a cool villain!”. I was laughing when I read that page. 😀

Btw, panel 3: Is this _your_ (not you’re) way of…
Somehow this happens a lot on the internet.

Luke

Hmm… I suspect Danni’s actually about to give some very useful advice, and that’s Kleya’s not going to like it.

P.S Panel 3, last bubble, typo (you’re)

Shachar

Spelling mistake. “Is this you’re way..” should be “Is this your way…”.

While Danni obviously doesn’t know the circumstances, she’s almost certainly twigged what Kleya’s up to: “I… don’t know what to do. I… can’t stop hurting people. But I *hurt* people. But… what if… deep down… I’m actually evil. A monster. Something that is completely, utterly… Unlikeable. With no hope of change.” Couple that with her “Nice” special in the Game Trials and choosing the pacifistic route, and it doesn’t take a genius to work out that she’s terrified that if she engages in violence (even in the VR-within-a-VR setting of The Game), she’ll like it and be utterly ruthless and… Read more »

In my experience teaching college students, people aren’t fast to catch on. In general they’re incredibly dense and slow to learn anything, even if the answer is beating them in the face and screaming at them. It’s not that they aren’t smart, mind, they just find it hard to see beyond their own thoughts and ideas and needs and world. You just have to repeatedly demonstrate to them in a thousand different contexts one fundamental truth and the bright ones will eventually be enough aware of their surroundings to put two and two together. Danni’s not a genius by far,… Read more »

It does take people time to work through their beliefs. It colors the personal reality of a person so much they can completely miss the obvious if it doesn’t match how they think things should work. In that way everybody is stupid. We all suffer from it. I also have found, from personal experience, that the experienced often forget how hard it is to learn something outside their own personal experience. I know I have struggled to learn new skills…then got pissed when a new person had a hard time learning what took me months to perfect XD. Life lesson… Read more »

I wouldn’t have phrased things quite such a manner, but I have noticed that people will not pick up on hints about others even when quite blatant. They tend to assume everyone else is just ‘normal’, until you do something to do otherwise. I actually like teasing people with references to things I did in the past, and it’s shocking how oblivious they can be. For instance I donated my kidney to a child once. I bring this up all the time in subtle hints. I wear a shirt that says “living donor, see inside for details” all the time,… Read more »

Danni: Well, then, that answers it… …You’re the leader of a nihilist, destructive, anarchist and omnicidal club of hackers who have ruined my life as I was wounded during the Ending!!!
Well, that’s my guess. Too bad for Kleya’s user.

BaufenBeast
Again, I don’t think Danni was injured during the Ending, as the dialogue doesn’t support it. Her fans were wondering why she retired so abruptly, which implies the accident happened before the Ending (otherwise they wouldn’t be wondering). I believe Danni’s fully paralyzed and on a respirator (because a power outage could kill her), but if anything, it’s more likely that she’s been that way since before the Ending; nobody would accept putting her on life support after everything went down, even assuming hospitals were functioning properly, but if she was already in that state, it’s harder for people to… Read more »

I bet her “realization has to do with the whole “friendly fire” incident and why kleya didn’t want to use that avatar a second time… but that’s me and my crack-pot ideas.

Nikary

Naaaah, she most probably just figured out why Kleya was so upset to find out they’re a villain group.

Razmoudah

Yeah, the layout for this one left the speeh bubbles cramped in places, but the actual dialog itself flows nicely, especially for both how the last couple of comics have gone and the two characters involved.

The Aussie Bloke

If she can’t bring herself to be a weapon, be a shield.

Kleya for party tank!

feartheswans

Being a tank means she has to attack for aggro/threat/enmity she’d probably do best as a healer.

Davros

I thought being a tank was mainly taking the brunt of damage and shielding the damage dealers.

Alex

That’s right. And it’s kind of ironic that someone with an avatar from grrlpowercomic forgot the “pull aggro” part of tanking, because that’s what Sidney did just recently. 🙂

But Kleya could be a party shield without being a tank if she has the appropriate spells and potions to enhance the others. And healing, too, of course. I am curious on how conflicted she’s going to be whenever she has to heal someone evil.

Alexander The 1st

She can still be a heal tank.

As for pulling aggro, video game AI doesn’t abide by the Geneva Convention – medic’s are free game.

Razmoudah
Actually, video game AI in essence did used to follow it. Or, more accurately you could only gain aggro by harming an enemy. Healing spells, buffs, and debuffs didn’t register. I can’t remember right off hand which MMORPG it was that changed the balance, so that healers, buffers, and debuffers also gained aggro, but I do remember that Final Fantasy XI changed the balance even further, requiring tank classes to actually need special abilities for the express purpose of building aggro to keep the enemies attention focused on them, rather than just wailing away on them. Before FFXI so long… Read more »

Opinions on the vote incentive, anyone? I thought the doll was cute, but I may need to work on the concept a little; how many NAV fans crochet?

Katie

I’m not sure but wasn’t the path that Danni got called Morto, not Mori?

Iron Ed

re: The alt.txt: Dialogue looks good to me, Aneeka! Makes sense and reads smoothly.

(I like that doll in the vote incentive too!) 🙂

Liliet

I sure hope Dahni is going to tell Kleya what 90% of readership… okay, what _I_ at least am thinking: just go on this merry way and you will not be a monster ever again! You are okay! And to offer her help.

also GAME TUTORING GAME TUTORING GAME TUTORING seriously come on

also btw does everyone remember that Danni owes Kleya her life already? Sure Kleya upstaged her in the trials, but Danni only was in them in the first place because Kleya refused to participate unless they included Danni, too.

Kessy Athena
No offense, but that would be a **really** cavalier thing to say, and it sounds like someone who doesn’t understand what Kleya is going through, isn’t trying to understand, and frankly doesn’t care. Kleya is responsible for her mother’s death, and the gods know how many other people. *Everyone* Kleya has ever known or met is either dead because of her or considers her a murderous monster and would try to kill her on sight. And she knows that they’d be completely justified in doing so. We don’t know the details of what happened or what Kleya’s motives were, but… Read more »

Several pages ago, Kleya asked, “what if, deep down, I’m evil… Incapable of change” and I think this is the question Danni means when she says “Well, that answers it!” It’s easy to lose track of the question, though, given that we had a long flashback and some other chatter, but I think that’s what Danni is referring to, not a new plan. She’s just going to observe that clearly Kleya is capable of change, since she can go to all this trouble to keep from hurting anyone, even NPCs in the Tutorial. Also, the crochet Kleya amigurumi was cute.… Read more »
Tre

I kinda think it is a little of both. Danni has the answer to Kleya’s behavior…and maybe had an idea of how to promote their popularity. One lead to the other. Remember, this is Danni we are talking about. Not a bad person, but clearly self-centered. So she is naturally gonna latch onto anything that can keep herself alive without costing her parents. What better way than to attach herself to Kleya firmly and make sure Kleya is successful?
