Mighty Eyebrows Boy is good people.
Is he like a Genie to himself? He has to be careful what he wishes for, he just might get it.
Can't wait to see Parley again. Eeeeeee! XD
why would you even THINK that smitty?!? omg
Annie does that BAM! thing pretty well.
Still crummy, still courty.
Thats one way to write yourself out of a plot hole.
That's some bad luck indeed for that hypothetical guy, especially if that's his own sword!
Be careful what you wish for...
I had to re-read that like five times to understand what he was getting at.
It's not that he makes her appear. It's her teleportation skill that she still uses herself. There would still be a reason for her to teleport to him.
If he pushes luck too hard in his favor, she could teleport to him because Eglamore got injured. So he's careful not to abuse the power.
Smitty's situation really reminded me of this: http://lesswrong.com/lw/ld/the_hidden_complexity_of_wishes/
Aaaaaaand new avatar, like... BAM!
That seems pretty logical, Smitty.
only responsible adults can have smitty's kind of power
That's a level of thoughtfulness I appreciate in reality warpers.
Woo! Annie's doing the gun-hand thing!
Yes Eglamore has taken a grievous blow but, y'know, Smitty horny...
So.... anyone else suspecting misfortune?
Sure answers one question that I never really asked.
Just like witchcraft.
Bam!! Double guns Annie... the last thing I ever expected to see...ever.
Her expression down to her bendy pose is hilarious.
Panel 4 - It could mean because what thing?
oh my god, Annie is kind of a charismatic person now. when did this happen!?
Is this quantum stuff? This feels like quantum stuff.
Finally, the dark underbelly of Smitty's probability manipulation.
BAM. also tom your expressions are getting so good do not stop
And we can't have Eglamore dying. Nope.
They've definitely matured a great deal. He's thinking things through.
... also, Annie doing the 'bam!' is ADORABLE!
WHICH MEANS SMITTY CONSIDERED MAKING HER *BIP*
I didn't even realize how much I've missed those eyebrows.
I feel like there are some intense foreshadowing going on.
LUCK IS SUBJECTIVE.
Authors comments give me life
She killed eglamore
Look at Smitty understanding his powers and what not. Oh he's going to be a great court medium.
Eglamore died. That happened. Sorry.
The etiquette of power. Fun!
Glad to see Kat has taught Annie the double guns.
You know I can't handle Annie when she's this cute, please dial it back a little.
I'm assuming you read the same post about the tub full of mac and cheese.
He feels kinda like Sasaki, from Haruhi Suzumiya's novels and such.
Also, nice touch of "karma responsibility stuff" :D
Oooh. Didn't realize his power could do that. Hope something like that has never happened before.
Haha, Annie's gotten so much more chill :)
Hm. I just realized, I thought that the sound of space itself being distorted would be a more impressive sound than "bip".
Hey, if he really wanted to see her, and she's in range, he could always just ring her up and arrange a date. These psychic types - they so often forget they can still use mundane channels alongside their gifts...
His fantasy involves someone dying?! That says a LOT about him. Why didn't it involve something harmless like forgetting her phone, a scheduled meeting, a glomp, or a kiss?
Gotta love third panel Annie.
I'm just going to assume the card trick is relatively harmless and he's not killing anyone for that.
When Annie says "Bam" her face
I never realized that
Smitty is very responsible.
Whoa Annie, be careful with that pose! It's not meant to be used lightly.
He's adorable. She's adorable. They're all adorable. Also, I wonder if he's been told that's how his power works, or if he's just supposing.
Andrew is the best! He's kind and handsome...AND THOSE EYEBROWS THO!!!!!
Tom, thanks for making this comic, it's pretty cool
Annie's hair is looking longer!
Oh my god, Smitty is ta'veren
Something seems to be wrong with the grammar in the fourth panel
or the balancing part could be on the other end such as she catches a silver bullet and.. twins.
So his powers aren't the purest of pure and things CAN go negatively with them.
That's good. A balance with powers is something I like to see.
Panel #3 needs to be a "deal with it" gif like yesterday!!!
"Could mean because" isn't grammatical. It should be either "could be because" or just "could mean"
Smitty's imagination of why she might teleport back isn't too unrealistic if you think about it. Eglamore is a trained fighter and Parley is learning how to fight. If something attacks, they can handle it. What neither of them probably have is a ton of medical training beyond basic first aid. It wouldn't have to be something as serious as "sword to chest" but I could see her teleporting back because of, say, needing some cream to treat poison ivy rash or aloe for a sunburn or something similar. It's still bad luck for her as it interrupts her training, but it doesn't have to be worst-case scenario.
One wonders if he had to learn that lesson the hard way.
That was in the old Dungeons and Dragons cartoon: "if you bring water here to quench your thirst, you cause a drought somewhere else."
Balance is important even if you don't have magic powers!
Don't look back, Snuffle. There's crazy people behind you.
Why did people think the blonde X orange-haired person telling that story about their relationship was believed by everyone. It was obviously conveyed clearly. Everyone had lost interest in the story immediately afterwards. We're human. We don't do something like that after a bomb like that. Okay maybe not everyone reacts like that, but certainly not an ENTIRE class of kids who are still in school; you know, the point in everyone's life where cliques and hierarchy and all that mean everything. Bah. Anyway today is a good comic. I like that Smitty is able to realize that everything, even good luck, has consequences.
The hypothetical man with the sword in his chest is Eglamore.
cutest couple ever witnessed.
Mighty eyebrows boy is mighty tall now
LIKE LET'S SAY YOU WISH FOR A BACK MASSAGE
He's so mature. That kind of power with the wrong mindset could have been an abhorrent thing.
So who wants to bet Parley's gonna be all ticked off because he didn't bip her back for a booty call or three?
So I'm really starting to dig Short Hair Annie. Just sayin'.
I can't believe that guy (Who is that green dude?) is dead
Man, everyone's starting to look so GROWN UP I can't get over it! I keep going back to the beginning of the story to look at how they've grown. Even Smitty's starting to look so adultish. It's making me nostalgic, honestly. XD
Smitty seems like he's gotten older and taller. Looks great!
And this is why MIGHTY EYEBROWS BOY is my favorite.
anyone notice that he's calling her Georgie? when did that nickname come about, and how has he not gotten impaled for it? xD
Third panel though.
Panel three is up there as one of my favorites in the entire comic!
It's good to see that there's also a negative side of his ability. The risk of give qnd take. I like it, Tom.
Wow,so Smitty's power is more far-reaching than I guessed. Basically when he guesses that Parley is going to appear,the universe bends over backward to make his guess right. The weird part is that Parley's reason for teleporting will have happened already, so effectively he is altering the past.
don't listen to Smitty, you should always tip everything 100% in your favor.
"His fantasy involves someone dying?! That says a LOT about him. Why didn't it involve something harmless like forgetting her phone, a scheduled meeting, a glomp, or a kiss?"
I'm gonna go ahead and guess that he's had a pretty abject lesson in not abusing his powers by now.
I don't get it.
Eglamore dies I'm calling it.
You have to be care for what you wish for, Smitty!
But Smitty, she asked about 'Bam', not about 'Bip'. You may even consider 'Snip' or 'Whoosh'.
You're doing a really great job making all the kids age gradually and naturally, Tom.
I can't place it, but something seems off about this whole sequence, it's weird.
Also Smitty looks exactly like Eglamore in panel 4.
Are those UGG boots? Please tell me they are not...
Qualified BAM theory 101. Important for later. Test on Fnordsday.
I still think Andrew is so fcking op omg
he seriously has the coolest ability
Annie is really learning to loosen up, given panel 3.
This makes me wonder what terrible things must have happened in order for him to get so mature about using his powers.
Shocked and terrified girlfriend sex is the best.
Fairy on the loose!
