I will not be fielding questions on tumblr as to whether Steffi has this problem. You’ll just have to continue to suffer through this panel-based storytelling method which I have chosen.
Nobody asked about the pain…
hmmm, interesting, Steffi’s reaction and response, along with mannerism, shows that something different was on her mind
Wait, you mean we can’t receive ALL of the answers for EVERYTHING right now, with no regard for pacing or development? I, for one, am SHOCKED.
it’s like we gotta READ the comic or somethin
I know right!?!?!?
I mean, how inconsiderate is that!!?!!
Now I feel bad for Steffi. Again…
Oh how you kill me with the storytelling D: My heart goes out to them ;A;
What’s this? Using valid literary conventions to draw out the narrative in a compelling and exciting manner?
What are you trying to do, make us keep reading or something? Disgusting.
You mean that all the information I want to know isn’t available on the internet? I’ve been lied to…
Lied to BY the internet, even!
Not knowing what Steffi said in the last panel made me think she went tsundere on Reed suddenly or something. It took me to a few additional rereads to see the last panel as the way more likely “dredging up bad memories and cracking composure” instead of “crush on Reed out of left field”.
Tschüss – means bye in German.
THANK YOU GOOGLE!
Correction, thank you Bucc-i! Now I don’t need to go look it up XD
yep, I know, spent three and a half years there, but by her questions I would say Steffi had her incident before they come up with the new procedures and she was hoping Reed had the same problems so their would be someone who knows how she feels and she could talk to about it. At least that’s the impression I got…
I bet you Steffi can totally kick stuff with her phantom limb! Giving her a, sort of, superpower.
“You’ll just have to continue to suffer through this panel-based storytelling method which I have chosen.”
I tend to shy away from any storytelling methods that have to go through panels or committees to be presented. Too much red tape. And don’t get me started on the retconning.
Unless you meant the other type of panels, of course-
I do hear interpretive carpentry-based storytelling is the next big thing.
“You mean Phantom Pains? I haven’t had any problems with it yet. Though I’ve had the strangest case of itchy eye..
..of course, it’d probably help if I stopped trying to rub my eyes with my prosthetic.”
Is THAT how Tschüss is spelled. After all these years of hearing my Grandfather saying, me mimicking him and everything. I still would have no idea what it was when seeing it in text form…
Regardless. Don’t know if I have posted yet but… Been reading for a long time, read to the latest update at that time in one sitting. Loving the story your weaving…
Welcome back to Shocky’s Crazy Theory Corner! Today’s subject: “Phantom pain”.
Steffi doesn’t have any either, but wishes she did. That way, she would at least have some memory of what it was like to have both legs.
An intriguing notion Shocky…
I for one beleive Steffie is talking about a different kind of pain.
Perhaps an emotional pain.
The both had quite traumatic injuries after all.
I would be willing to be that you’re not that far off from the truth though!
Oh. Yeah, emotional pain could be, too. I tend to not to notice emotions because of Aspeprger Syndrome, so it’s no wonder I wouldn’t have thought of it.
You have Aspergers too?
That I do. I’ve been diagnosed since I was a little kid.
Well emotional pain isn’t exactly we automatically think of when when we pain, so I’m kinda crawling out of the box wwith my idea hile you’re leaping out of it with yours!
I don’t think I’d ever think of that!
Well, I do have a weird way of thinking, hehe!
My hypothesis: Steffi has agonizing phantom pain for the heart that Raccoon stole. Only them being together can possibly ease her suffering and make everything right again. /*yodels* I am shipping
YES. Scratch all theories, this is the only true answer.
I wasn’t gonna mention benzene on this one, but then I looked at cube’s tumbler and saw that adorable picture of steffi and benzene together, AND IT”S BUGGING ME DAMMIT!
okay, that said, I promise, I swear, or whatever not to even mention Benzene on the next one, no matter what it’s about.
Maybe she’s acting like this because she feels really guilty about him losing his arm and is thinking about when she lost her leg? Hmm, I suppose we’ll find out.
I just had massive nerve damage to my leg, and I get phantom pain (mostly itches though). The bad thing about “Phantom Itching” is you can do real damage trying to scratch an itch that doesn’t really exist, or exists on a different part of your body than where you’re scratching. Seriously I have scratched until I bleed in my sleep trying to make it stop itching and gotten infections because of it.
I usually stop myself before it gets too bad, but I also have a problem with scratching at my skin. More than once I’ve woken up to find a big mess of dried blood and a big wound somewhere.
Because of a combination of Asperger Syndrome and being underweight, I am oversensitive to touch, with any and all sensations being amplified and lingering indefinitely. For me, usually the compulsive scratching comes from a desire to override the awful tingling and pain that light brushings and touches cause. I feel like going on more, but I think I would be rambling! So I’ll leave it at that.
You should buy some cotton gloves.
That’s a good idea. Thank you!
Speaking as a DBK amputee (Double Below Knee), I often tell people that the worst “Phantom Sensation” I get is itching. Imagine, you get an itch in a foot that you don’t just lack feeling in, but one that isn’t there at all to scratch! Fortunately, as time has gone on, I have trained myself to be able to scratch my arm when my non-feet itch and it helps!

I just finished Digimon Tamers.
There was absolutely no reason for it to be a good show.
But it was an amazing show.
Chiaki Konaka is my hero.
Had to draw Antylamon and Xiaochun ‘cause the whole ep where they met was so perfect.
(not drawn to scale because Antylamon is fuckin huge like a boss)
