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

Annie does that BAM! thing pretty well.

29 Apr 2016 | 12:04 AM

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!

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/

That seems pretty logical, Smitty.

Yes Eglamore has taken a grievous blow but, y'know, Smitty horny...

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!?

Finally, the dark underbelly of Smitty's probability manipulation.

BAM. also tom your expressions are getting so good do not stop

29 Apr 2016 | 2:04 AM

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!

Look at Smitty understanding his powers and what not. Oh he's going to be a great court medium.

Eglamore died. That happened. Sorry.

Glad to see Kat has taught Annie the double guns.

He feels kinda like Sasaki, from Haruhi Suzumiya's novels and such. Also, nice touch of "karma responsibility stuff" :D

29 Apr 2016 | 5:28 AM

Oooh. Didn't realize his power could do that. Hope something like that has never happened before.

29 Apr 2016 | 5:41 AM

Haha, Annie's gotten so much more chill :)

29 Apr 2016 | 5:48 AM

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?

29 Apr 2016 | 6:39 AM

Gotta love third panel Annie.

29 Apr 2016 | 6:40 AM

I'm just going to assume the card trick is relatively harmless and he's not killing anyone for that.

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.

Something seems to be wrong with the grammar in the fourth panel

29 Apr 2016 | 7:58 AM
Sinjun

or the balancing part could be on the other end such as she catches a silver bullet and.. twins.

29 Apr 2016 | 7:59 AM
Mudsaur

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.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:03 AM
Taia25

Panel #3 needs to be a "deal with it" gif like yesterday!!!

29 Apr 2016 | 8:04 AM
Bret

"Could mean because" isn't grammatical. It should be either "could be because" or just "could mean"

29 Apr 2016 | 8:24 AM
Random Reader

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.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:27 AM

One wonders if he had to learn that lesson the hard way.

29 Apr 2016 | 8:29 AM
Felix

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!

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.

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?

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

29 Apr 2016 | 12:56 PM

Smitty seems like he's gotten older and taller. Looks great!

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.

29 Apr 2016 | 2:43 PM
Keetongu18

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.

29 Apr 2016 | 3:01 PM

don't listen to Smitty, you should always tip everything 100% in your favor.

29 Apr 2016 | 3:06 PM

"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.

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'.

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.
