Well if this is a lie, it's thoroughly rehearsed. Either the Shadow Men™ are not competent at all or these two are taking Kat for a ride. Also... Coyote deliberately helps turn animals and feyfolk into humans. That's something of a reveal. Are all those turned secretly his agents? Perhaps even unknown to them? Then again, it's Coyote, so maybe not.

Early update?

Yeah, this worries me. Who's transferring whose consciousness? Where? Are they sharing a body? How far are they willing to go for their love?

Hold on, a group of people that "wants to be like God" in Coyote's words isn't interested in a way to become immortal? 🤔 "We've seen a thing or two in the past few centuries and we decided to settle for above-average old age and good health"

They're already together. Do they mean in public? So they don't get in trouble for being weird? Or do they just want to be more sensual?

I take back my previous comment, the Court isn't interested in a path to immorality *that's irreversible unless you're a diety-level being like Rey, requires so much interaction with Coyote, and is likely impossible to replicate artificially even if the Court could harvest stars for ætheric energy*

The main problem is that the robots apparently do not have souls. From the Ether's perspective, Arthur is indistinguishable from a toaster or any other arrangement of matter. They would have to find a way to create a soul and bind it to Arthur. They would probably also have to "tell" the Ether how the electrical impulses in a cpu map to coherent thought. Otherwise, it would be impossible to transfer Arthur's consciousness to something that isn't a robot.

So.. kinda like how Renard wanted a human body to be with Surma.

Why would the court not be interested? also these two are criminal scum.

Direct involvement from Coyote...DUN DUN DUUUN!

Eeek Is anyone thinking about Reynardine? 'cause this also has the potential to go bad.

http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=770 noticed the shadow-men symbol on Jeanne's jacket on this page. I love this, since I tend to re-read over and over again

I wonder how Coyote would feel about the transfer of consciousness from a robot to a flesh body. Maybe he would be willing to offer some form of support?

Never give up on your dreams, but you could probably just be together in secret. That said, flesh is rather important to a human... You could try the reverse instead.

Well this page does not give answers to anything, it just raises more questions. Good stuff, Tom

This seems... posted early. Did I miss a day? Has Tom changed his posting habits? Have I lost touch with reality? Is the entire web comic nothing but a mass hallucination? Is the comment section a hallucination too? Am I alone in a vast, self-imposed illusion I call reality, merely playing with my own shadows?

I'm starting to wonder who they want to end up in that body.

And so Reynardine did look upon a functional Consciousness Transferrence Machine, and sigh with regret.

The court can only make it work with involvement from a all powerful mysterious trickster god, but we figured we'd give it a try.

Oh, dear, I knew it. Juliette is gonna want to become a robot.

Coyote personally assists in the creation of the humanoid faerie? That's interesting. It also suggests that, on some levels, Coyote is already part of the Court (and, indeed, is a being of much importance and influence). Wheels within wheels again, or so it seems!

So, does the Pinocchio want to be a real boy, or does the lady want to be Pinocchio?

Bbbbb but, then he wouldn't be Arthur. Or am I rushing to unwarranted conclusions here?

Me. Arthur and Me. For Arthur and *******ME*******. Always use class 2 pronouns following prepositions! The person does not matter! Also someone please tell wildbow to do this he's a great writer but he always fucks this up and it makes me cringe every time I see it and it happens like once a chapter at least. Thank you for your time.

"Workingwith the shadow men... HAS aways been a means to a end", though the way it is is also not wrong per se.

Nothing weird, no candle wax and chalk circles, hust, you know...dabbling.

26 Jun 2017 | 4:29 AM
😮😮😮

Typo: "for Arthur and I" should be "for Arthur and me". (The word "for" is a preposition and therefore takes a noun phrase in the objective case.)

26 Jun 2017 | 5:27 AM

ah, but transference of consciousness in *which* direction? not so sure that it will be Arthur's consciousness...

Hmmm. Think Coyote could "encapsulate" the soul of a robot? Of course, he wouldn't be able to eat the remains.

Um, but you are together and Arthur seems to have feelings for you. There can be advantages to loving a orbit. Have you read Chester 5000?

26 Jun 2017 | 9:29 AM

So the Court relies on Coyote for some stuff. I wonder if Coyote is gonna or has already taken advantage?

And now we enter the confusing philosophical debate centering identity. In this Universe it seems that there is some non-physical entity giving a soul (if I take another reader to be true). But what is it? Only Coyote seems to know. I'm really impressed Tom, that youre willing to tackle a plot such as this. Also, love, a great motivator. We see it appear in multiple character motivations. Kat and Annie for each other(as friends), Annie for her father, her father for her mother, Rey for Surma, Jeanne and her and of course, Ren and Ayilu, Smitty and Parley, wow I could go on.

Coyote's involvement in soul transference was covered previously. This information is merely a recap in that regard. Chapter 50: Totem, for those wishing to reread.

To everyone saying that maybe Juliette wants to become a robot, I'd suggest re-reading this page: http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1843 before coming to a conclusion.

Ooh, is the goal not to make him a cyborg but to make her a robot?

Calling it now. They both want to be robots, not humans.

26 Jun 2017 | 11:42 PM

Yeh, it could be a way; but what if it turns out that Arturo doesn't like his newfound synthetic organic sensitivity? And hasn't anybody read Dr. Eldritch? This could just be another situation in which the robot ends up wanting to kill all humans.
