Green’s shocks are sourced from the nodes and the others’ are not. The others’ were taught in a different way than Green picked them up, a more regulated way that doesn’t interfere with the nodes, implied by what Açaí said.

@Dani "The System"

I went back and I see on page 88 a "maintenance guy" is referenced. So I think you're right, in that there are other people who can reset the nodes. I still think that Acai will play some sort of key role in interfering with Greenie's shocks, though.

Aside: On page 93, Acai says maybe Fig will "be able to defeat what [he] made". Wonder what that could be foreshadowing, if anything?

That's one hell of a thunderclap.

Camila those drawings are AMAZING! They're so stark and raw and really convey the characters well.

She can be brown, she can be blue, she can be Violet sky!

Thank you for the correction to Fig's marks on her muzzle. They have now been restored.


Thank you for your dramatic and artistic depiction of two of the main characters of this story. They are well-represented in your work.

She looks cute without them. If you turn your brain just right she looks like she has a mustache.

Green is turning into the person he escaped from when he left the brothel - a controlling, greedy, power hungry pimp.

Christ, nobody is going to stand up to Streaks now, after that power demonstration.

The earth. It quake.

Boom shake shake shake the room.

I looked at today's minutes, and Zach titled it "Peals". So I suppose you could call it the roll of thunder after a lightning strike! That aside, I like RG's little raised wing parting the curtain. Howdy there sentry.

An earthquake? I mean, I guess you can call it that but that implies that it's not connected to the red light, which seems unlikely. A tremor, maybe, caused by the power surge? Or a shockwave from an explosion?

@Dani It's implied that there are other workers (check the page before his introduction scene), Acai only goes to refresh them when they go out on their off day. It makes sense that the system would have to work without him, he originally was hired to "wire the lights" and then he was supposed to get paid and go home.

And then everyone in that other room was dead jfc
11 . by: Dani November 30, 2017, 11:01 pm

@Furrama, who else can fix the nodes? I thought he was the only one.

I also didn't consider an earthquake for this scene until you mentioned that!

Acai isn't the only one who can fix the nodes.

@2 The node blazed and there was an earthquake, she wasn't shot at. Everyone in the brothel would have felt that, so let's see who goes to investigate.
8 . by: Dani November 30, 2017, 10:25 pm

Acai may hold the key to stopping the node violence. If Acai doesn't replenish them, they won't work?!
