Here we are.
Now its show time.
Euclidean geometry is for squares.
Oh my god. ._. It got scarier. Here I thought, at the beginning of this chapter, was going to be funny and pleasant. Then this happened. Yet I'm loving it~
Let's all hope that no one will walk out of this completely insane
Wait, what? Are we back at the Court? Or maybe: did we ever leave it? And are those bird-creatures like those ones from Doctor Who?
Still looks like a ship to me.
Ugh, the Zimmy chapters are always so confusing :(
Zimmy's least favorite place. Now with monster Seraph robots.
Annnnd Zimmy is off to the races! Monsters from the Id? Even Gamma can't control her now!
Please tell me that's a nobody and the real Gamma can still stop this. Because if not we're in real trouble.
... this happened quite faster than i expected
NOPE NOPE NOPE
NOT THANK YOU
-nopes out of orbit-
I would like to welcome everyone to Zimmy's mind
Wow, this is not what I expected to see next!
Great meeting you at SPX! I wanted to say something, but I have a bad habit of having stupid things come out of my mouth. I'm glad you liked my shirt, though! ;) ♥Kat drawing
OH MAN HERE WE GO!! S**T IS GETTING REAL IN THIS CHAPTER!!
Are those crab legs? The ship is trying to turn itself into a Bud substitute!
Nice job with the chain link, Tom.
Uh oh. This does not bode well.
you have officially freaked me out.
Well that's not good.
Marvelous. The players are beginning to arrive. "Welcome to my nightmare," says Zimmy.
W E L P
MAY ZIMMY'S ILLUSION HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOULS, ROBOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is, IF YOU HAVE THEM. And I HIGHLY DOUBT that you do.
Note: Paz is capable of communication with ANIMALS, not monsters and Nobodies from Zimmy's illusion.
I just want to say, panel 4 is very Serial Experiments Lain, cool!
Things are about to get reeeeeally interesting
No, Gamma!! No!! ZImmy noO!! THis page: NO NO NO!!!
I am very upset
Oh... I forgot how NASTY this place could be... this is gonna SUCK.
Whoa, what? This is crazy.
The influence of the ether and etheric beings seems to be growing in intensity and overtness as the characters get older. I'm loving how much more mature and wild the drama has become.
Man, Zimmy just carries a little bit of Silent Hill around with her everywhere, doesn't she?
Zimmy Powers... ACTIVATE !
well this escalated quickly
O-oh. Well. Um. Here we are, indeed.
Can we, erm... NOT be here anymore? That is a thing I would like.
Wow, that panel of gamma is really strong. As always, thank you for the comic :)
Ehm ... what happened?
there are now way too many reasons to be excited about this chapter.
Dumo origoto, Mister Roboto, Jun-o Jun-o!
JUN-O!!!!!!!!!!!! ARRRGGGGGGGURGL *drowns in blood*
SO GLAD EVERYTHING IS HAPPY AND PLEASANT HERE.
Quite certain that wasn't an improvement to the bots.
I reminds me silent hill somehow...
It's "The Funfair of Evil" all over again in that last panel. At least they don't have seringes instead of fingers. Or do they?
Those robots like something out of a nightmare, which they technically are, I guess...
Well, it appears getting things done "before Zimmy snaps" now requires time travel.
Completely confused now... oO;
Please someone help Gamma! Why noone takes notes on how bad Gamma looks? D:
OH MY GOD!!! That looks scary.
Ahh... Good to be back, Silent Hill.
Wat? What is going on here?
Last panel: This is what comes of treating Zimmy's powers as if they're nothing more than a handy genie in a lamp.
One day, Zimmy.
So much for that dance party.
The only Hell is the one you take with you. Kimmy takes hers on holiday.
Fantastic change of scenery. I am intrigued. This time there seems to be more life around.
I just remembered again: I love this comic!
Well gg robots, look what you did. ...Wait, they can't...
Tic-toc version 2?
Nice effect in panel 4
This has video game written all over it. AND I WANT TO PLAY IT!
Dis gets more intense with each panel .
...suddenly, "it grew from the seed Bismuth" really popped into my head. And the tic-tocs come to mind. And are those seraph robots now bird-shaped and does this have to do with Kat's constant association with birds too??? Also just, Aaaaaaahhhhhh this entire story is so fantastic!!!!!
Sweet Jesus. I thought this was going to be a simple innocent filler. This is turning into one insane arc. THIS IS ESCALATING QUICKLY.
Nightmarish stuff! The crouching Gamma picture is very disturbing.
Is that Zimmy's world?
Okay. I think I get it now.
If there is one hope I have for this chapter, its for an opportunity to also see some of the other characters shine.
Holy crap, that's the seraphs, right? In the last panel. This... can't be good. Why are they warping while the students are warping? Are they going to start warping too? Why do I have the feeling that this is when Kat's "angel" form may manifest?
Wow, things are getting weird now. Well, weirder in any case.
Also, it was nice meeting you at SPX. I'll need to find a safe place for that Kat sketch.
I wonder if those robots still wanted to be made flesh if they knew about the possibility of being dragged into that place.
Whiskey Tequila Foxtrot. How did they get, I don't even, wut?
Welcome to Zimmingham. I wonder if Annie can still GOP things with the paper stuck.
... Is that Broad Street Tunnel that Annie's on?
OH NOOOOOOOOOO (I love this place)
This feels like a storyboard for a particularly creepy music-video. Especially the shot on Gamma, which is to die for.
I'm not boxbot
Is that purple stuff water or beast flesh?
Are those.. the seraphs?
2nd to last panel :"Oooh crap not again ;_;"
Oh boy, back here again.
Poor Gamma. Her life is completely controlled by her unstable, overpossesive girlfriend, and the one time she gets something for she wants all hell breaks loose.
The court is going to have to start handing out prozac to all the students after this one...
You robotic fools! Do you have any idea what you have done!?!?!!!
Zimmy Fun Time.
Also: sorry, bird people. Kat is not into you any more.
I have no idea what is going on here.
Poor Gamma probably feels terribly guilty right now.
I hope that paper spell doesn't inhibit Antimony's Zimmy-calming, Nobody-busting powers.
Zimmy control has been activated!!
Well at least now zimmy doesn't have to worry about the spiders... oh damn now he just has to worry about the harpiesbots
Are those silouettes tic tocs?
Well...this is going to suck.
Welp. Those things sure are creepy.
Been down the Canals have we Tom?
at least i know what zimmy does now
Wow, Dark City anyone? Fantastically twisted!
Looking pretty Silent Hill there, cruise ship.
Yay! Back to gloomsville again.
Amazingly atmospheric. Excellent work, Tom! :')
So that was jaring.
now that's not in the party spirit is it boat?
Well, THAT can't be good...
And... all the students with special abilities have had their abilities sealed....
Nice going, robots....
Home, sweet, twisted, un-real Otherworld.
I'm loving this
Those two last panels ...
Crack! Transported! Oh god the seraph robots are going to be so mega creepy now.
*opens up webcomics for the new day*
*gets to gunnerkrigg court*
Ummm...we went from everyone on a ship to a weird no-longer sunken city??? Where's the continuity? I'm beyond confused.
this can only end well.
Nothing could possibly go wrong with blending the realities on the ship and forcing it's AI to coexist with the spider/hell dimension.
Is Zimmy Escher's daughter or something...
Into the Zimmyzone. No sounds I notice but mine own head supplied alarm tones. Very effective chain link effects panel 4 Tom. It makes me seriously worried for Gamma.
YES! NEW UPDATE.
Are tose bird-like things in the last panel the S-series robots!? Holy crud, suddenly they don't look so silly and non-threatening! ._.'
Oh this place.
...It's a river of slime!
Seriously though, that's beautiful.
Bet their mission quests are like this:
-Find Gamma to keep Zimmy in check
-Protect as many students as possible
-DO NOT GET CAUGHT BY THOSE SHADOW THINGS!!!
So...they're at the Court now?
I have no idea what that's all about, but I think it qualifies as "Very Bad."
What a lovely vacation spot. This is the best cruise ever.
Woopsie, I guess Zimmy's snapped now. So will the seraphs' countermeasures come into effect, or is this going as planned for them?
NOOOOOOOOOO :( dont make the other caracters go crazy! jack was bad enough... :( plz be okay gamma!
Oh ....crap Zimmy is taking the ship to Zimmy Land.
To say that this isn't good is a understatement.
The snap of a mind and the world with it.
Those Seraphs sure look...beaky. I tried.
Ooooh, spooky. Are the winged things those jerk-bots?
I am the boxbot!
aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh what's happened? creepy purple portal and poor gamma
I think it will give me nightmares.
Woaaaaaah what happened? ????? Gamma what happenedddddd
Ooooh dear. This is the last place where.. anyone.. wants to be.
This is starting to feel to me like what produced Silent Hill...
My lord... things went south quick
Is it already too late??
@Macaroon Oh my god you are so right. That makes me feel 10x worse for Gamma.
@everyone-that-met-Tom I am so jealous of you! Tom never comes anywhere near Orlando. Tom, Mega-Con is located here! Come get a table so you can go to Disney!!!
I understand it's hardly the time but I think Janet looks really pretty here..
Ahem, now commenting on the current situation-
HOLY SONUVAPEACH WHAT DA WHAT IS GOING ON THE SHIP HAS GONE PSYCHO >O
You know, I had a bit of a theory for a while that the world Zimmy sees is ours. Still sort of on the fence about it.
WAIT NO HOLY CRAP. I JUST REALIZED. THOSE CREATURES ARE THE ROBOTS. THE SERAPHS. THAT'S HOW SHE SEES THEM.WHAT.
Time for Paz to chat to Lindsey...
I Knew this would happen! Also, I think the robots forgot Zimmy's "powers" are uncontrollable. And, how are the robots in this city? Don't they have some sort of anti-delusion protection or something?
This city is growing... I wonder if Zimmy could be sorta a weaker version of the seed Bismuth, And these etheric generators around the ship made her stronger? If that's true, the poor seraph robots in the last panel could become this place's version of the tic-tocs..
I am really hoping that the students don't take this lying down. Make the school and the robots answer for this nonsense, since apparently there's no oversight and the adults are selfish idiots.
Wonder if Zimmy's freedom will be questioned after this. She's pretty much allowed to do what she wants and has little surveillance, which is a good way to handle someone like her, but these incidents keep happening.
Uh, oh, somebody check the port list. Antiguq, Barbados, St. Croix, there it is, Hell. Watch out for Customs!
So this is what is supposed to seduce Lindsay? Gloomy architecture?
So are the buildings in the background Zimmy's city, or the Court?
This chapter just got 400% more exciting
This ship wouldn't happen to be named the Event Horizon, would it?
Huh. I really wanna see Kat's etheric form again. I have it as my background.
I winder if we'll get to see anyone else's forms as well. I just want all the cool things.
also: are we going to see the big scary machine-god Kat? That would be CRAY.
Zimmingham, also the spikes at the top of the first panel are the bone spires from Divine?
For those of you who are confused, seriously just go back and read the archives, particularly chapters 11, 19, 28, and 38.
Come to think of it, this is Gamma's first time in Zimmy's little world, isn't it?
Did someone divide by zero again...?
Also: I really, REALLY appreciate the ability to tell a story by showing, without having to use any words. So kudos on this one, Tom. It paints a rather lovely (albeit haunting) image of what the characters are seeing.
Am I the only one getting the feeling that not everyone going to get out of this alive?
Love how the panel shapes started to shift on the last page from rectangular and have now gone into full crazy quilt mode.
It was reasonable at the beginning that there was not an actual boat involved. It seems that assumption was correct.
Dangit Gamma, you had ONE job!! D:
Peel off the damn stickers, kids, then subdue Zimmy and help Gamma!
I don't get it... Hayley's right, the Zimmy chapters ARE always confusing...
welcome to zimmy land!
Lost my mind when I saw BOOTS' comment. I thought this page was neat, but you just made my life, bro. xD
Wow, nice. A continuation of how things appear to be depends upon one's point of view.
