boy i feel so dumb for not getting to be the first commenter…wait no not really
Epic burst-in with 42?
I’m not sure under what circumstances one would roleplay a cat (magic fox?) that cannot consume liquids (except maybe magical ones?) But I am curious now.
I am not a Furry, but I am friends with a number… and have had the displeasure of being creeped right the hell out by a number as well, sometimes the same number. Based on what I’ve witnessed of Anthropomorphic Animal Roleplayers (think of THAT next time you see an AARP commercial, and accept what you’ve always known – Wilford Brimley is a Walrus Otherkin), here are my best guesses.
1.) Sonic the Hedgehog fandom is a HUGE part of this crap, and that’s a world full of Robot Animal People. Even without the looming shadow of Sonic’s influence on Furfandom, many Furfolk are also Tabletop RPG players, and have long since learned that stacking unbalanced classes and racial templates is the way to go – for every Multi-Class Antipaladin/Super Saiyan/Sorcellator who’s also half High-Elf, one-quarter Centaur, and one-quarter Pit Demon, there some other dude who’s all “Yeah, I’m not just a Cat-Person, I’m a ROBOT Cat-Person. Who knows Kung Fu.” A fair number are enthusiasts about cybernetic modification even in media where it’s not inherently paired with Animal People, either in fiction or as an emerging science, but that’s more about giving yourself badass Wolverine claws and slit pupils with night vision for most of them than about the kind of full-body Ghost In The Shell crap that would stop you from having a drink now and then.
2.) Maybe she’s so “in character” that she just doesn’t want to take her mask off, and he interpreted it as an admission that there’s nowhere to put a straw through. If that’s the case though, her separation of IC and OOC behavior could use some work.
3.) Modification of the default human form into animal configurations is only the tip of the iceberg. A significant fraction of Furfolk are into whole-body alterations into various inorganic substances, often plastic or rubber, or else a homogenous organic structure like a fungal ooze or a big single-celled organism that just sculpts its cytoplasm to look like a sexy lady. That’s territory that tends strongly to cross the line from Fandom into Kink though, so beware investigating further.
True story – back in the ’90s, in an AOL chatroom adhering to an allegedly Tolkien-style medieval setting, I once RPed with a guy in a heavy concealing cloak who I was sure was a stock issue Heroic Dark-Elf Drizz’t clone for like two hours before discovering that he was a magical dog person made of soap bubbles. He tried very very hard to seduce my character, until I revealed (*ahem* retconned) that I was three Gnomes on each other’s shoulders in an overcoat.
For that last paragraph, you are now my hero.
Mine as well.
Not mine though.
You should film and narrate a Furry documentary. Use an Australian accent though.
Oh, no worries, we don’t need a documentary. We’re more than happy to strut around in full suit at cons. Hell, some of us are even happy to do it for no better reason than because we want to. Don’t get me wrong, the “kink” suiters are disturbing, and so are the ones that focus solely on the fetishistic side of the fandom. I’m personally just an artist. I used to find it easier to draw anthro-morphs over humans. Now it’s the other way around though… still like the good people I’ve met, though. Emphasis on good.
I was mostly being facetious but that was a really cool and informative reply, not sure what number is a euphemism for though.
and this is a comment
OMFG NO WAII!!1 :O
I love how it shows past the masks. It is a great way to get past having the expressions missing, and doesn’t look half bad.
…But 42 doesn’t have expressions anyway. The see-through filter isn’t showing anything except her eyes, which is dumb because the camera isn’t pointed that way so you still can’t tell what she’s looking at. So, it was okay when it was Ben’s face, but here it’s actually totally pointless and weird.
42 Does have expressions. She managed to lose the smile during the fight with her sister, for instance. And there is some variation in her eyes, too. At one stage during that fight they were completely round. In this instance I think they look alert, as if her eyebrows would be raised if she had any.
It doesn’t matter if you can’t see what she sees yet. You can tell she has been made aware.
Hehe, silly bird-man, getting on a robot’s case!
giant dancing chicken!!
I’m guessing 42′s robotic “voice” is only obvious to people who know her, then?
It’s subtle enough that someone might think it was an effect from her wearing a mask, but still there. They might also assume she was cosplaying a robotic japanese catgirl.
Only the best thing to cosplay. That and cosplaying tiny New Zealand flightless birds.
Is the Seagull Magnolia underneath?
Wait the bartender never returned at all? So she was…maybe listening behind the door? That would be unfortunate.
As awesome as it was for her to answer honestly, what happened to acting natural? And not natural for a robot, natural for a human. “I’m a teetotaller.” “I’m the designated driver.” Or if they serve more than alcohol, “I’m not thirsty.” “I don’t know you GTFO before I get the bouncer.”
She did say “Natural, miss Frohlich”, but I think by that she meant she would stay on top of things in her own way, which might not seem natural to you or me. She never said she would be natural for a human. To her, that would be unnatural.
I suspect that when questioned she is incapable of giving anything other than a strictly accurate answer. I don’t recall her ever lying, or even being deliberately evasive. When her answers are misleading, I don’t think it’s done deliberately, and it’s because she either doesn’t quite understand the question or she understands it too well. So she couldn’t have used the “designated driver” response because that would have been a lie, and she could only have threatened to get the bouncer if she was seriously contemplating that course of action.
You could say that she misled her sister by tampering with her sensory inputs, but during their fight I think all the statements by both robots were strictly accurate, to the best of their knowledge. Also, it may be that the prohibition is only against misleading humans.
I’d buy you a drink anyday, 42. Or whatever it is you want.
I do find it highly-amusing that “Hmm….” follows some very literal statements. Sensei really was amazing when it came to giving his kids intelligences!
Is the rooster doing the funky chicken on the dance floor? We will never know…
“Stupid roleplayers”? Waaaaaaiiiiit… Aren’t furries in general pretty much roleplayers by definition?
Pretty much every one of them.
However, there are two obvious aberrations. 1: People who are so in to it that they actually feel they are being not playing a role at all, but rather finally being free to be their “true” selves. 2: Creepy (but ultimately non-Furry) dudes just trying to pick up a chick.
Yay, it took a while but we got there! Ten pages ago I was wondering how 42 would deal with pick up lines without blowing her cover. Now, finally, we know. Her response may not be the most obvious one, but maybe it was the only one she could make given her robotic nature. In any case, it seems to have worked. Now, I wonder if she’s subject to Asimov’s first law, and if she is then what is her plan for what happens next? I’m fairly sure she has one.
Actually she told us herself, back on page 242: “I cannot participate in any direct harming of humans”. So, what’s the plan? One possibility: She’ll ask Nate, Taurus and Tigris if they are humans, and they’ll reply indignantly that of course they aren’t.
That’s not a shootdown I’ve ever heard before.
But it is one I can easily imagine being used more often in the future, thanks to this webcomic. ;-D
OMG THE CHICKEN! Cool moves, you funky chicken… XD
I guess you could say he was….COCKBLOCKED.
all the guys I meet are either gay or a seagull.
Looking back on this page, find it curious everyone assumes the Seagull is male. Except Drillgorg, because drills are awesome like that.
