So I guess I'm actually a fairy because this is how the world feels to me often.

Annie's hair is smouldering. I think she might have a different point of view about how the Court is treating their guests.

*Don't leave you a lot of ??? options* Welp. Guess the court feels that being the teacher of this class doesn't take a lot of effort. Which is completely true from what we've seen.

Well that's sad. And Annie seems to agree with me. :(

It's a very ceremonial event. Lots of professionalism.

the court REALLY cares about its students, is see. 'specially the ones from the forest. (bugsy is a great name tho)

WOOOOOOOOOOW. (but really, as in, this is super interesting)

As irritating as the Court's lack of interest in and respect for the forest denizens is, I laughed at Bugsy's unabashed excitement for her arbitrarily-chosen name and profession.

25 May 2016 | 1:01 AM

Oh, no. I'm not even going to bother Googling Bugsy. All that matters here is JOOOOOOOOOOB, PAYDAAAAAAAAAAAY, NAAAAAAAAAAAAME! What's more important than those!?

Annie looks nonplussed, or even sad, at what Bugsy has just told her...

25 May 2016 | 1:58 AM

Well, can't tell if that guy really is as evil as people picture they are. He acts more as if he wanted to please her but she's not actually that capable or developed, more than any other option. The court is sinister somehow, but filled with people bound to protect it as a home. I don't really know how dark it could be for real. Hope it's not.

I wonder how expensive the transformation process to turn a Fey Creature into a human is? They also offer free school. Clothing and food provided. Then job counseling and help in finding employment. The Fey-Humans seem quite happy. I wonder why the Court does it. Where's the gain? What's the purpose? It's hard to believe it's purely for charitable reasons, but then again the Court isn't just composed of shadowy men behind desks. Plenty of goodhearted gents and ladies make up the Court too.

Hmm, Annie doesn't look all too pleased with this latest revelation.

Oh, the gangster that made Vegas. Yeah, this GC place is definitely what is wrong with the Outernet. I'm gonna do like Antimony and go walk barefoot in the forest to talk to fairies.

It's hilarious that the rest of Bugsy's flashback clearly is her teacher telling her that she only barely scraped through her finals and that basically being keeper for the next batch or two of bio-processor slaves is the most she can be relied upon to do. Just being told she has a name and a job is such a positive moment for her that she literally blanked out the rest! Meanwhile, poor Annie is learning that there is no maximum depth for cynicism!

Mmmm okay. "Your assessment results don't really lend you alot of opt..." And he totally just stole a name from a movie.

Bugsy's classmates are Casablanca, Little Caesar, Star Wars and Flashdance.

So you're telling me that Bugsy IS named after Bugsy Malone? I am astonished and delighted.

This does not look like a slavery thing. more like a court carrier Councillor trying to fit very strange people into positions.

The IMPORTANT thing here is that Bugsy got her name. And a job she kind of likes sometimes.

Does anyone else get the impression that her glasses don't really do anything, and she was just trying to figure out how people kept them on their face?

Annie seems to be finding this all just a little suspect...

And here I thought the origin of her name had something to do with bugs. Turns out she's named after a crime-drama film, if we're to take the hint from Tom there.

25 May 2016 | 7:29 AM

G-Court, your name can be Dick. AS in Dick Move. Yeah

Well, I thought was a perfectly good name, myself. I can see where it might be a little tough to enter as a user name, though. I'll bet they have some great passwords...

That makes me wonder what he had on the shelf that would make him think of "Bugsy." Some Looney Toons thing?
