May 3 – 15, 2010

Last night, I stayed up until 4:00 a.m. for no reason at all.  I think I need a life.



  1. Isn’t it usually the case that party animal stay up at that time and people who don’t have a life usually sleep at 6 pm?

  2. So… why don’t you throw out the old, broken guitar?

    Comment by Stefan — May 3, 2010 @ 6:35 pm

  3. That was my first guitar. I can’t just throw it out. Maybe I’ll try to get it fixed someday. And throwing out a guitar is like throwing out a book. It may even be worse.

  4. Casey can’t be the physical incarnation of chaos. I’m the physical incarnation of chaos. (Those who doubt this claim should take a look at my hair.)

  5. I vote Time Lord.

  6. Interesting, so it’s perfectly okay for Casey to tell Marie that he can’t tell her the reason why he can’t tell her.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 5, 2010 @ 12:41 pm

  7. Hmmm, intriguing. In spite of the spontaneous combustion of papers and hallucinations talking back to Marie, I had always worked on the premise that the world in which the comic is set is pretty much like our world, so without any (unambiguously) supernatural things occurring.

    But you are making it awfully hard to provide rational explanations for all this stuff! Unless… perhaps his bet or agreement or whatever with Ursula is behind his inability to talk? If so, the consequences of breaking that agreement must be extremely awful, judging from what Casey is willing to go through for it.

    And that still leaves the hallucinations. Aaah!

  8. Hey wait, isn’t being the physical incarnation of chaos *my* job? 🙂

    Comment by Plantita — May 6, 2010 @ 11:27 am

  9. No. No it is not. It is mine. I even have business cards.

    (OK, the cards actually identify me as a Metal/Punk director, but the first rule of being a chaos elemental is that you don’t follow any of the rules. Including the rule that you never follow the rules, and the rule that you don’t always not follow the rules, and on and on. Also, none of the contact information on the cards is accurate.)

  10. Oooh, confessions! I’m glad Marie isn’t physically incapable of telling the truth.

    Comment by Stefan — May 7, 2010 @ 1:19 pm

  11. Yes confession! From the author herself, stating that the “story is going to end with rainbows and puppies”, I am abuzz with excitement.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 7, 2010 @ 3:03 pm

  12. This is getting serious – didn’t Marie’s parents *die* when she was 19?

    Comment by nobilis — May 7, 2010 @ 5:45 pm

  13. Nobilis: Yes, they did.

    Comment by Kari — May 7, 2010 @ 5:48 pm

  14. “Blood may be stronger than water”? Is that like a Canadian saying? Cause I have always thought it was “Blood is thicker than water”, both metaphorically and literally.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 10, 2010 @ 2:22 am

  15. Can I have a puppy?

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 10, 2010 @ 12:43 pm

  16. Why puppies and not kittens? This is unfair discrimination against cats! You should atleast give people the option for kittens in place of puppies. 😉

    Comment by nuttycat — May 10, 2010 @ 6:52 pm

  17. Because puppies are better that’s why.

    Comment by Mer — May 11, 2010 @ 9:12 am

  18. So it’s MARIE setting things on fire, not Casey…hmmm…

    Comment by Ivy — May 12, 2010 @ 7:54 am

  19. But how did she get out? Evil Marie digging a tunnel? Or leaving her body and entering a spare one outside?
    Small wonder that she got suspected of lighting the fire, her account her of movements being so unbelievable.
    Let’s see – perhaps Casey is her (fallen?) guardian angel who got her out, but mustn’t tell her. And is forbidden to get too close to her.
    Endless speculation …

    Comment by nobilis — May 12, 2010 @ 10:52 am

  20. Or Casey will now take his Tardis, park it so the door is exactly in the closet, and let Marie crawl through it, the materialization accidentally triggering the fire…

    Comment by Stefan — May 12, 2010 @ 11:57 am

  21. I just have to say that Marie is one mess up chick. Although by the comments here, she doesn’t seem to be the only one.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 12, 2010 @ 3:27 pm

  22. If it wasn’t SunshineRain typing this, I’d ask “What is that supposed to mean?”

    Comment by Stefan — May 13, 2010 @ 12:22 am

  23. Stefan: It means that SR thinks that you are a chick – or something completely different…

    As to Marie, there is no mystery at all: If she can light fires with her mind, why not build tunnels, too?

    Comment by nobilis — May 13, 2010 @ 2:07 pm

  24. That comic just brings up more questions, as far as explaining thing is concern this is just slightly above Lost explanation of the magical cave of light.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 14, 2010 @ 1:11 am

  25. Would it be rude of me to say hurry up and draw your comics so I know what’s happening?

    This is the huge advantage of comics that have already been finished – you don’t have to keep waiting for the next instalment.

    I never imagined that Marie was there when her parents died.

    Comment by Mer — May 14, 2010 @ 7:03 am

  26. SunshineRain: Just what I wanted to write. We got no explanations (Marie’s being upset didn’t need one) and a new mystery.
    If Kari continues like that, we’ll only get more and more mysteries, till she will abandon the comic, having became a famous author – leaving all its mysteries unsolved till the world’s end.

    Mer: Marie was suspected to have lit the fire, don’t you remember? (Some “nice” people dug that up some hundred comics ago.) So of course she would have been near or on the spot.

    Comment by nobilis — May 14, 2010 @ 8:39 am

  27. Actually, this fortnight`s strips did give you a rather huge revelation (it may not seem that way, but they did). Marie has spent years worrying about her friends potentially thinking she was crazy if they found out the full truth about what happened on July 18th. This comic deals with that issue. She has now told Casey as much of the truth as she knows.

    Comment by Kari — May 14, 2010 @ 9:09 am

  28. Can I add another complaint? What is up with people HUGGING yet again, yeesh.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 14, 2010 @ 3:07 pm

  29. You people have been nagging me for a year and a half to get Casey and Marie to reconcile, and now that I finally have, you are complaining about the hugging? If you weren’t SunshineRain and thus devoted to pushing all my buttons one by one, I would turn into a HUGE MONSTER OF FIERY RAGE!

    And then I would give you a hug.

    Comment by Kari — May 14, 2010 @ 3:14 pm

  30. “HUGE MONSTER OF FIERY RAGE”? Is that another obscene reference that show your age and that nobody will get?

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 14, 2010 @ 4:11 pm

  31. Ohh… look at that! we learned something! actually, we learned quite a bit! and they are hugging! I like!

    I like that there was a revelation and the shape of the mystery has changed somewhat but that a mystery remains. It helps maintain the tension and pull the comic along.

    SR just does not appreciate teasing. Teasing is all the fun in a plot.

    Comment by emily — May 14, 2010 @ 4:28 pm

  32. OMG, OMG, evil/dark Marie has come alive and is TALKING to other people.

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 16, 2010 @ 2:53 pm

  33. Dude, that’s Marie in her winter coat. She has worn it before.

    Comment by Kari — May 16, 2010 @ 3:05 pm

  34. Marie actually has OTHER clothes that ain’t costume?

    Comment by SunshineRain — May 16, 2010 @ 3:17 pm

  35. You know, there might be something to the theory that Casey might be a renegade Time Lord.

    Comment by hussein — May 27, 2010 @ 5:17 am

  36. Does he have a Magical Fob Watch of Memory? Does he…hear drums?
