…It just got bigger.
This….is the greatest thing since Dave rejoined the gaming table by insinuating that he was the cause of Seth being sucked into the gaping maw of hell.
I think the thing I find most interesting is the fact that the three versions of Violet we’ve seen so far have looked a bit different, simply due to the body language of the operator.
Three? Are you counting inert-Violet, or am I forgetting something?
But, yeah, Shaenon is really good at body language. There’s one bit in Narbonic where three different characters have been turned into Dave, and it’s possible to tell them apart just by the way they stand.
They first met her in a previous arc and her body language then was distinctly more feminine than it was with her operator on St. Charlie.
Nick’s kinda hyper at the moment, isn’t he?
Nick has… needs.
“I WANT GAME!!!”
Link for anyone who doesn’t get the reference. (Note: Front-end advertisement.)
As someone who think the swear-filter is hilarious, I’m happy to see that it’ still around when he’s in Violet’s body. It just wouldn’t be Nick without it.
Nick isn’t really in Violet’s Body. He’s just using it as a mobile communications device, like Virginia’s phone.
Of course, VB has some features Virginia’s phone lacks ^_^
He’s not just using the body — I think Nick truly identifies with the bits of technology he inhabits: It’s just like how it’s not “you” and “you’re arm”, but everything you directly control is you. So for Nick, those hands are just as much part of him as an arm or a leg (or, well, hands, if you wanna be all accurate and stuff).
Additionally, I’m gonna go by the body language that Nick still totally identifies as male.
And judging from Chris’s candidness with him, I think he, at least, doesn’t have any trouble seeing Nick as male, either.
That may be how he – and possibly others around him – view it, but he’s still in the Osprey. Along with the anti-profanity software.
Are we SURE just what features Virginia’s phone has? Granted, we haven’t yet seen it display opposable thumbs or a ponytail.
I’m glad to see that Nick is concerning himself with that which is truly important! ^_^
Oh, yeah, I am loving Nickolet. NickBee?
My housemates were sleeping when I opened today’s page. Then I hit Panel 3 and my laughter woke them up. Well executed. 😀
I think I may need to make an updated variation of my Violet Bee fan-art… :3
You and me both, Chris.
It’s been a year or more? He’s got to be jonesing so hard!
Is it weird that I have never loved Nick more?
He looks so cuddly! The shirt’s too big!
This is SO AWESOME.
It’s gonna bother me until I figure out if Nick is wearing a long sleeve undershirt or if he’s wearing a ringer tee and his arms are in shadow in panel 3.
long-sleeve shirt — you can see folds at the cuffs.
TRUE geek transcends gender/body-type/species.
Like the fact that a true goth/punk can manage to be aloof and/or menacing in pink. I’ve met a couple who could pull that off – friends of a friend. Dressed bright and cheerful, but the crowd opened around them like they were something out of the Ring or similar supernatural monster films.

Marcie and Chris now
Ask, “What’s this now
Coming in the D of I?”
It’s just Zerhakker,
Dressed like a slacker!
And we hear his anguished cry!
D & D! D & D!
Fourth edition … set it up for me!
D & D! Oh, D & D!
Nick is hyper … driving Violet Bee!
He needs a quick fix
Of d-four and d-six!
Eights and twelves are also nice!
Makes undead run!
Holding two would be para-dice!
Chris is disturbed now,
A bit perturbed now,
He can’t deal with what he felt!
His mind is reeling,
‘Cause what he’s feeling
Is hitting him below the belt!
Pair a dice? Bad Ed! No cookie!
Oh, folks, you have outdone yourselves again.
The phrase “the world’s most disturbing boner” will stay with me for years.
“The phrase “the world’s most disturbing boner” will stay with me for years.”
this is a great strip. otoh i am sad to have missed violet!nick and dr lee’s first encounter…!
This is the greatest. (I know a lot of other people have said it already, but I wanted to say it too.)
Ooooo! This is Gonna be good!
“…or I throat-punch you! Which I can totally do now that I have hands again!” It must be nice to be able to threaten non-lethal violence on others again.
The “world’s most disturbing boner” line instantly reminded me of Ilsa/Buddy.
Thank you for remembering that.
That’s it. This is now officially the best Skin Horse storyline.
(Love that pontail. It’s like if Rob Liefeld could actually draw hair.)
Reminds me of Zero from Megaman X.
This is something you encounter when playing Mahjong Titans on Windows. There’s the circle tiles, the number tiles and the boner tiles. The most disturbing boners are the 1’s (so big) and 9’s (so many).
Huh. Moderntales.com has been shut down. Kinda wish I had thought to save an archive of Demnestor’s Heroes before it did, heh.
Well this raises all sorts of questions as to what is the basis of gender……
Okay, wait, whose voice is coming out of that robot?
Obviously the profanity filter is still in place… but is it Violet’s voice who is threatening violence? Or is Nick’s voice coming out of that female body? I can’t decide which would be more funny.
Also, I love Nick!Violet’s outfit. World’s most disturbing boner, indeed.
Hmm… I don’t know whether it was ever even established that Violet had a specific voice. It could have just been that her previous operator was good at imitating a feminine voice.
Nicklet looks GOOD. And male- the facial expressions (I’ve read this before; it’s more than just the two), not just the breast-disguising shirt. Not that “looks good” and “looks male” are directly related.
