Correction: FALCO PAUNCH!!!!!!
PHIL KAHN PUNCH!
Thanks for finally showing me your moves!
Correction Correction; FRIGG-K.O PAUNCH
Just make out already, you two.
I bet that our joking aside, Rachel really* does sexually desire Frigg.
*: I know these are fictional characters. Don’t worry about that, just focus on how I’m right. XD
Loki is right, Loki is wiiiiiiiise … ~!
Girls, Girls, Your both powerful,
Also, norm, do you know Loki’s loci?
Yeesh, the school of hard knocks is tough on the faculty too, huh.
Does that mean the curve-breakers get broken too?
I feel bad for Rachel in that last panel. Even if it’s what she wanted in the end.
You know, I think it looks like she she enjoyed losing more than she did winning… some people bend that way.
Either that, or….
Sometimes it’s worth it to lose, as long as you get to be right. I often feel that way, myself.
Sort of a Reverse Pyrrhic Victory?
exactly. A best of all possible losses.
That’s some nice distance. Probably would’ve done better if she’d used E-Merl, though.
Look, it’s the Flying Nun!
Heh, made that joke a while back, when she started with the flying tackle…
Boomerang joke, throw it out there and it just keeps coming back!
Just doing my part help the environment by recycling used jokes. :-)
Even the motes of dust look like little hearts.
“If you ladies are done kissing, I have some ass-kicking for you!”
Is she the Chosen Nun?
That depends on which one has Tonguey.
“You’re the crusader here, Frigg. Make me!”
Mwa ha ha ha ha ha ha. Yes, a several pages delayed reaction… mainly only because it only became funny after Frigg did indeed make her. Ka-smite!!!!!
I <3 Frigg.
She will never be replaced in my heart as the true tank or the most badass, no matter how much more "together" the newcomers are.
That’s a whole bunch of leaps of logic, Rachel. You’re annoying me.
I think Rachel was just poking Frigg to find her buttons, to find what Frigg cares about enough to summon power. Live up to other people’s expectations? ha, no. Her self-image? Nope. Her companions? Yes!
It was the same in the Death Tank, wasn’t it? Same trigger?
I’m pretty sure we’re seeing her legitimate thoughts and opinions here. Don’t get me wrong, she’s definitely being intentionally antagonistic but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t mean it.
Think we just learned that underneath it all she’s a bit of a loon just like the rest of the team. What with her backstory it’s hardly the shocking revelation of the century.
It’s like I’ve often observed: the only truly crazy ones are those that think themselves entirely sane.
Interestingly enough that would place Byron as the most sane member of the group.
Sounds about right.
Pretty sure she was intentionally pushing Frigg’s buttons. Which isn’t as fun as it sounds 8C
Some buttons are certainly more fun to push than others.
Don’t push it first. Stroke around it for a while, then … oh. *cough*
Well, I suppose Frigg could only take so much before she lit into Rachel. I guess this means the gloves are on.
Her boxy gloves at that.
Ha, she used the magic words,but will she be able to actually get the lesson?
I think I might actually be in love with Rachel.
You’re missing a speech-bubble-tail in panel 1.
D’oh. Thanks for the spot. This will be fixed.
Frigg loves the Power Glove.
It’s so bad.
I actually had a Power Glove. And yeah, it was bad. Really sucked as a controller. From an engineering standpoint it was interesting, using two high-frequency sound emitters on the knuckles and three microphones in a flipped L-pattern ( ┐ ) you would attach to the TV to sense the XYZ position of your hand. Too bad the ancient TV that I had at the time used high frequency sound for its remote control. I would point the glove at the screen, and it would make the TV volume go all the way down, and then shut off!
Actually, I was going more for this 4W3SOM3 COOLK1D:
And you mean baaaaaaad.
All Rachel has shown is that Frigg can summon up the glowy stuff when she gets pissed which is pretty the same thing we saw before, she hasn’t really changed Frigg’s view or disposition in any way. At least it doesn’t appear so though I expect the next strip will suddenly prove me wrong.
On the other hand it’s nice to see Rachel get mauled and possibly disfigured so I’d say it was worth it.
I don’t think it’s just that she’s pissed, or that she said ‘goddammit’. It’s her vow (using the term loosely) to protect her companions that gives her power. So when Rachel calls her out on not being good enough to protect them, glowy gauntlet shit happens.
It reminds me of the champion class from Arcana Evolved. Their class abilities function only when they are defending the person/place/thing that they champion.
Still, having an opportunity to work through the kinks of this and let Frigg get a feel for it outside of the thick of battle is probably worth something on its own.
I’m choosing to think of it like training. You keep repeating that ridiculous feat you pull off by accident once in a blue moon when you’re throwing out desperate gambits and eventually you’re able to do it on purpose whenever you need to. Probably can do it better than when it was a fluke too.
It’s surprising how often people end up doing that to develop new things. Half of chemistry is trying to replicate the cool, crazy thing you created last week when you forgot to clean beakers properly. And martial arts typically consists of trying something, not completely failing, before spending the next month trying to make it work.
Cue a gnome that looks suspiciously like Chris Tucker.
So when does the pissed off dwarf come in and smack them? Or is he going to be philosophical at them? That’s almost worse…
Called it. :)
Yup, the secret really is saying “God damn”.
So did anyone besides Rachel see it this time?
I’d guess no, because it’s the more amusing answer. But we’ll see. I mean, that kind of distance on regular punch probably isn’t normal, so there’s something resembling evidence even if nobody was looking right at it when it happened.
Was it good for you? It was good for me…
Quick E-Merl, now’s your time to shine! Jump in with some healz! :P
I thought this was supposed to be a bare knuckle fight!
You know what this reminds me of? When Kirk is trying to get Spock to show that he’s been emotionally compromised.
Except that Frigg is nothing like Spock. Whoops.
Aaaaaaand… we got connection! :D
