So cyborgs are partially immune to Tip’s über power?
What makes you think she’s a cyborg? She could be all mechanical
Ruby is indeed all mechanical: “a battle android on the run from the military project that spawned [her]“, as revealed here.
Of course, even being totally mechanical doesn’t necessarily make you immune to the superpower; Violet doesn’t seem to be, it’s just that Tip doesn’t act on it.
Ooh, good catch! I knew that sounded familiar, but I didn’t have the time to hit the Narbonic archive.
Dang! You’re totes right. I just figured it was enhancements, but when she mentioned her husband it clicked.
I guess they found a way to have sex after all.
I’m not sure that Violet is attracted to Tip. It’s clear she wants him, but that could be for her own nefarious purposes. She may have an agenda and is just using her mechanical wiles.
Why do you think she’s immune at all? She’s just explaining why she thinks she shouldn’t. She may find herself going along completely to her surprise. Isn’t that how it was with Dr. Lee?
compare and contrast he fourth panel of this comic and doctor lee’s introduction to tip.
She hasn’t said no yet.
…which WORKS on Tip.
If anything, Ruby seems *more* interested than Virginia did.
Ah. It sounds like their White Castles are not located on their fine dining cars. Good to know not everything there is completely crazy.
Tip will stick it in anything. And that is why we love him.
So Ruby is still seeing (and married) to Mike the cartoonist. Although I wonder what Mike does on St. Charlie.
Oops, I forget to ask if they ever figure out how to have sex together.
I’m gonna go with “yes.” After all, Nerys and Odo found a way or two.
And if not, Tip is willing to help explore possibilities.
I get the feeling Tip’s been getting busier ever since Artie broadened his horizons… so to speak.
She can fold up her wings, right? They look too big to be comfortable indoors.
Yes, we saw her with her wings folded, <a href="http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic_plus/series.php?view=archive&chapter=50919"once upon a time.
Oh, this makes me hope to see more Narbonic alums. Wait, did Foot survive? It’s been awhile since my last Narbonic archive binge.
The wings made their first appearance in this strip – amazingly they didn’t ruin her dress in the process of unfolding (unless her dress was cunningly designed with slits in the relevant places on her back)…
Metal wings on a battle android? I’d be very surprised if they couldn’t get through a dress when in a hurry.
Oh crap, of course, -that’s- who she is!
And they figured out how to have sex!
Dawwwwww. That is so sweet!
Though if Tip does sex them up, and Artie finds out… I’m going to need a flowchart here…

(Choo-choo, choo-choo, choo-choo-choo-choo-choo-choo-choo-choo)
I’m Ruby, living in St. Charlie!
Haven’t shown up here in Skin Horse since the strip began!
I was hiding from the military, living at large,
But now I can be happy as I can!
My wings are super-cool and gnarly!
Tip is trying to include me in his evening plan!
I know he’s hot, but I must keep my cool;
I’m married now, to Mike the protoplasmic man!
So Tip has finally reached Captain Jack Harkness levels… I say, that would be an interesting meeting
The universe may explode.
Gavotte: Sweetheart, your team has been tasked with a meet-and-greet in Cardiff, and… Why is Dr. Wilkins doing his Happy Dance?
I want to see that storyline very very much. Jeff, Shaenon, your assignment is clear.
You know, if they don’t oblige, I’m sure someone will write the fanfic.
Panel 4: Same noses! Secret identical twins? (er, identical twins of different sexes and one’s a robot. Still, this is Fiction.)
Hm, unfortunate then that she’s a /battle/ android; basing an infiltration android design on Tip would be a smart move.
I’m such an idiot! I didn’t recognized her until now!
