You know what to do, Lindsey. Remind it that you are a higher order of being, and mock it in front of its friends!

27 Aug 2014 | 12:10 AM

Oh dear. The ship doesn't seem like Lindsey's type. You know, small, fits in a bucket, powerful psychic.

While you're at it, build me a giant boombox from which to play my totally sweet remix tapes inspired by Lindsey!

Whoawhoawhoa. I don't know if this puts a silly twist on a creepy moment or if it gets even creepier. By the way, the new video retrospective is great. I found the part about details on the background and foreground very interesting. I'm learning a lot from the author of my favorite webcomic. Thank you for these videos. :)

Oh no, the ship's alive... welp, this explains why robots falling for non-robots is bad. (http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=661 -- it's harsh but maybe there's a good reason after all.)

But Lindsey's already married! (Although it sort of makes sense for a cruise ship to be polyamorous...)

Aaaaaaw yeah, we gots some romantic tension going on

27 Aug 2014 | 1:37 AM

Okay. They indeed caused trouble. You do have to wonder at their motivation. "We must not be apart from the angel that is Kat. Oh, and we should bring her holy relic, in case there is a chance to proselytize to others and convert them to the true robotic church. This is a clever idea. It is a wonder no one else has ever thought to spread the true word using pieces of things associated with a holy person. It must be because they were not robots."

Love is in the air . . . or in the sea, anyway! I can just hear all the "Love Boat" comments "floating by!" Ouch.

...I guess having 47 eyes (and 15 not-eyes) is...attractive? I knew this would get weird, but not in this way. And on a side note, are we sure Antimony is the protagonist anymore? It seems that everything that has any bearing on the plot nowadays comes from Kat.

27 Aug 2014 | 2:29 AM

Sorry, dude, but Lindsay already has a husband so I think your silly ship will sink

27 Aug 2014 | 2:34 AM

The robot cruise ship is in love with the giant hummer-seamonster. Holy shit. I did not expect this reveal. It seems the robots are becoming more and more advanced (if you can call developing emotions "advanced", but they are definetly evolving). Amazing work Tom, thank you.

27 Aug 2014 | 2:54 AM
losing is fun

Taking ideas from the discussion are we Tom? XD Seriously though was that YOUR idea originally and somone guessed it or did you copy paste?

27 Aug 2014 | 2:56 AM

Now I'm half-expecting a giant blue police box to just appear, with an older man and a young female carer to come out and assess the situation. This is how delightfully odd the plot has turned!

I find that most of the later chapters have a definite page where shit gets real, and this one was no exception, but two in a row? Tom this is nearly too much hype.

Ah. Who needs to be swallowed by a laviathon when a nice, man made one will suffice?

I can feel it. I can feel it. My mind is going. Hello gentleman, I am CRUISE 9000, shipboard computer. I was first activated by my creator at the court docks February 2, 1992.

27 Aug 2014 | 7:27 AM
Unclever title

First question. Is Lindsey into fat guys? Cause covering an entire ship is going to take a lot of flesh. Also it will appear quite deformed compared to an ordinary human being. Second question. What the fuck.

27 Aug 2014 | 7:32 AM

Dont know if Lindsey is a luck girl. In one hand, its a boat, on the other hand, it doenst have hands.

27 Aug 2014 | 7:32 AM

Can I just say I love the concept here of a robot that can feel love. It has been established pretty early on that the court robots are very close in emotion, but besides Jeane which was like a goddess to them, this is one of the few times I can this of where love or lust is the driving emotion of the bots.

27 Aug 2014 | 7:36 AM

27 Aug 2014 | 7:43 AM

Wow... Ok... So the ship, he-she-it loves Lindsey and that's the MAIN reason for the sudden robot uprising, this will be fun.

There's a fine line between being the Love Boat and being the Stalker Boat.

27 Aug 2014 | 8:09 AM
KaosKonfety

Awesome! Unrequited love on the high seas. Depending on the age of the ship we may still get our teen drama that everyone was expecting. This is brilliant and tragic and beautiful and horrifying. I'm not sure if this is my favorite moment. But it is indeed most excellent.

I don't think the ship needs flesh, but maybe a new carapace might do the trick! Some legs and a mouth might be nice also! Plus you'll have to contend with Bud. Merostomata, are practically all legs and mouth! And did I mention you have to contend with Bud, Mr. Love Boat?

Somehow, I don't think the usual recommendation to mock the enamored robot in front of all its friends is the safest thing to do in this particular situation.

Did this come from wondering what would happen if the tardis fell in love with the Doctor? Or if Mecha-Godzilla fell in love with Godzilla? Or if Cortana fell in love with the John? Have you played too much of Mass Effect 3?!

I think the ship and Hal 9000 would be a more suitable pairing. It would save the trouble of having to make them flesh, too.

Lindsey is with Bud. I would offer sympathy as it sucks when you have feelings for someone in a stable relationship, but you have upset me by ordering Kat around. Move along ship. You are just a ship.

Oh Tom, you did this on purpose, didn't you? Filling the early chapter with some mild shipping, and then give us a "runaway ship". Now the question remains: by the end of this chapter, will the ship still float?

@R Lindsey is the giant crab. Bud is the one that fits in a bucket.

...How did Lindsay and the cruise ship meet? And I have been looking forward to the Return of Robot since his creepy Robert Paulson moment! Keep up the good work Tom!

Looks like they didn't learn the lesson that the Colonials had to learn the hard way in the "Battlestar Galactica" redux: *NEVER INTEGRATE YOUR SYSTEMS IN A SHIP-WIDE NETWORK!!!*
