engage: modesty protocol 0.521
I want to think you had 42 punched in the face just so that she could make that face in the first panel.
Ahahaha. xD I just thought that myself.
That mask’s crushed face is perfect
42′s punched face is the source of oh so much humor now, deer god.
The application of this PNG was stupendous.
To be fair, it’s only her mask that’s twisted. Her face, apparently, is fine.
ya need to sell 42′s punch mask im sure theres people who will buy it including me
More discussion is sure to follow between these two.
Modesty protocol 0.602′s patch notes include:
“Will anticipate and turn away from private moments before they actually begin. Failing that, the recognition and activation sequences have been tuned down to 5.1 nanoseconds, down from prior version’s rather embarrassing 3 seconds.”
I just realized that in top left corner, Steffi has a huge face on. Poor Ben, on the other hand… hahaha.
… or are those her cheek lightning bolts making me think it’s the edge of a smile? Now I am confused.
hmm? i cant see it?
… Well. Full disclosure, I thought Ben was pretty smooth last comic (even if he’s not Chandra).
But this one has completely smashed that perception, neh? Keep talking, Ben, see if you can get it down to the heel!
Man, Cube’s really pulling out all the stops to obscure people’s faces this chapter isn’t she? The ambiguity is killing me!
42′s Modesty Protocols are pretty amusing. X3
Aw, and there I hoped he’ll have the balls to finish what he started.
Unless it’s not over yet?
*glances over her glasses*
…The action ‘sound effect’ in panel 2 may just be the single greatest thing I have ever seen.
You have summoned a horde of fans, my glob. OTP YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS =ÒᄉÓ=
I laughed inappropriately hard at the “courtesy” sound/animation.
Cube, you rule
So, how deep a hole do we think Ben can dig for himself? He’s got himself down to about 25cm in one strip, I think, but at least we’re seeing something other than his grumpy face.
With author’s blessing, it won’t be too deep. But other way, it will be a hell for poor boy – I’d say around 50 feet underground. Digging straight don, which in minecratf is just asking for a pool of lava underneath.
I don’t think Ben has dug himself too much of a hole because he DID confess, after all. Stef really IS a bit of a hurricane… or a pinball. When you’ve finally caught up with her “zig”, she “zags”.
For now, he haven’t dug too deep. But in this moment, one slippery word can cause an earthquake. On the other hand, if it’ll grou out into an argument, and they’ll get angry at each other enough, all there will be needed will be an angry kiss for hit to go down seriously.
42 and courtesy? What next? Jealousy?
… Oh god!
Considering the possible situation courtesy is to not look directly at them as you record the historic event via audio files. After all, Courtesy is taking that one moment, getting a picture, and then not recording the aftermath in video.
Jealousy would require emotions. I’m not entirely sure she has those.
I don’t think anyone can argue that she isn’t a tornado. Or at least a hurricane or tropical storm of some sort.
And an avalanche of crazy ideas… -.-
JUST SAY YOU’RE SORRY AND TELL HER YOU LOVE HER.
C’mon Ben, adrenaline can’t solve all your problems. Don’t screw this up..
I’m a girl and I still don’t know why he would have to apologize.
Well basically he doesn’t need to apologize but he had no reason to get *defensive*. “I do like you” is a better answer than “I didn’t say that” and then he proceeds to call her a lesbian tornado rather than just, like, admitting he was nervous and hesitant.
It’s just best for Ben to say he’s sorry (if he doesn’t know what he’s sorry for) remind her how he cares for her and leave it all in the past. Like you said, Dranorter, he’s going at this the wrong way.
DON’T DIG YOURSELF INTO A WHOLE, BEN! YAH HEAR?
Oh, but he will dig a hole. And from there there gonna be only two ways out – an angry kiss with an awkward ending when whatever transport they called for will walk on them during it, or an avalanche which will cause a major wound and days of awkwardness around each other and foul moods – optionally cut short by an autburst and a love confession.
After that last panel, I suddenly have Neil Young’s “Like A Hurricane” stuck in my head.
Of all the conversations to have while wearing animal costumes!
At a bus stop in the middle of the night with an internationally banned machine and with whole CCs of adrenaline and endorphin swimming around their skullmeat.
This is gonna get funner before it gets better!
Oh boy, oh boy… am I the only one who sees a very angry kiss just ahead?
Steffi <3< Ben?
Somehow, I don't see it.
Then you will have a courtesy of saying “I didn’t see that coming!” after they’ll hook up
Panel six. Dat face. Oh,lawd,dat face! Also,is it just me,or does Steffi look like she’s winding up for a punch in that last panel?
Well, if you cut down the picture just to these two and erase all the voice bubbles, it looks like she’s about to beat the crap out of him. Hopefully not.
When I first read this page, I was thinking “Oh cool, developments and stuff.”
Then I realized how huge Ben’s eyebrows are. MOOD = KILLED D:
Whelp then, I hope nothing bad comes outa that kiss. I really want somethin good to come outa these two
Gotta love 42′s mask though. I almost think she should still wear it after all this passes.
Ben does have a point in that last panel.
Strategically placed support beam?
Oh, of course the installed a courtesy protocol, they just forgot the basic humanity drive.
have you guys noticed how Ben wears a lambskin fleece jacket thing?
Well I guess we can say…
*puts on sunglasses*
He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
That was corny as heck an I aproove highly, sir.
What’s with the Scenery Censor(TM- this is a TV Trope)? It’s not like it was anything obscene.
And… I’m *IMPRESSED* by Ishinimori-san, programming something like that into 42.
Ah, the beauty of young people in love- and also the fun and drama of its complications.
Anyway, I hope for Steffi and Ben’s sake that this ends well.
She’ll take the tornado jab as a compliment. You do know how to get a girl all hot and bothered, Benzene.
“and youre like a tornado!!” LOL
I’m excited to see what the rest of that bench says~
42, that wall is made of glass. Walking out does not really have any effect.
everything about 42 asides, I really like ben’s face in thease comic strips.
looks very much alive and unsure of himself for once.
I feel for ya Ben. I’ve dated a tornado girl and it was awesome and loads of fun, but dayum was she hard to keep up with or even keep track of. It’s a hell of a ride though, I highly recommend everyone take a spin (pun intended) at least once.

Eeee! Just got my commission of Reed by Der-Shing Helmer!
Der-Shing’s work is always a huge inspiration, and I love how she drew my most Lawful Good of characters <3
