I predict at some point the train will write, “SO HOW CUTE IS NICK?”
These messages aren’t bacronyms so that theory is out…
Hmm. With these people, I suspect derailing the city and leaving it in flames with massive casualties probably gets bonus points……
(TUNE: “On Top Of Old Smokey”, traditional)
Right there on the wall!
It threatens destruction
To one and to all!
First, Unity’s lurching
With those of her kind …
And then she is lunching,
On brains she has dined!
How smart can she get?
Then finds a surprising,
Inspiring this song!
It threatens destruction
By writing what’s wrong!
Writing what’s wrong? ISWYDT.
This is not foreshadowing. This is not even [i]five[/i]shadowing.
We’ve gone all the way up to SIXTEENshadowing.
Thanks for starting my day off right, with four squared shadowing of disaster ^_^.
Huh. Never thought I’d see Morbo using grafitti.
I note that Unity is handling this much more sensibly (and calmly) than Sweetheart did.
It’s a nice font, I’ll give whatever it is that.
Eddurd, sometimes your filks really crack me up! This is one of them. Really well done.
I wonder if the brains were duplicated from actual people? As well as intelligence, Unity seems to have absorbed the speech patterns of an upper-middle-class English academic whose friends still call her “Bunty.”
Maybe all the brians are duplicated from the SAME person (Bunty).
Wouldn’t be surprised.
I dunno. There’s a well established fictive correlation between temporarily increased intelligence and the affectation of mannerisms associated with posh English academia, a feature which is far less apparent in those with more permanently augmented faculties. There’s probably some kind of Phenomenon behind it.
Whoever is behind the hallucinations: I like them.
Ah. You are assuming they are hallucinations. That possibility actually had not occured to me.
“I like this train, it’s exciting!”
I would criticize the zombies because their civility is predicated on a technological food dispensary system and they would start eating human brains if that system were to fail, but that would be the pot calling the kettle black.
Also, I don’t know if any of the characters in the strip read the comments, but I have a suggestion for where you can be yourself, free from persecution by the Man and the Man’s non-human counterparts. It’s a piece of prime real estate called Watership Down. It’s currently occupied by rabbits, but you can take them easy.
Nope, too late, “Real-life Watership Down fights housing development”
Oooookay. Thinking about the writing here. It’s showed up so far on the moon (fake or real), a book page, and a wall. It’s changed several times. So– ‘I’ will destroy them? This sounds weird (but hey, I’m talking about an underground city on the fast track) but could St. Charlie itself (himself/herself?) want them dead? Or gone? Maybe St. Charlie wants to stop traveling?
Wow, real stream-of-consciousness rambling here, but still.
