Point And Counterpoint

I'm pretty sure it doesn't taste terrible. You're just making this stuff up, aren't you?

Ebony, I'm the Author. I'm an omnipotent deity. If I say it tastes terrible, that means it does. Logic and realism have no part in this.

@Toraunt: Thank you! ^_^ I took a look at your comic; it's going a little slowly, since you only have six pages up so far, but it looks pretty good nonetheless.

@snowyowl: Her name is written "Trope-tan", with a lowercase "tan", as -tan is a mispronunciation of the -chan honourific and not an actual part of her name. (Well, technically it should actually be written "つろぷたん".)

There are certain things which may be described as "normal", but none of them are really worth mentioning because they're normal and therefore boring.

@Bisqwit: Every time I make any statement regarding Japanese, I get something wrong. You always seem to be able to correct me. Thank you.

@mystical vistor: You aren't Bob.

Only 2? You seriously underestimate the size of the OotS fanbase, Toraunt. I haven't counted or anything, but I'd guess the actual number is more like 20.

Trope-Tan has her science goggles on now. Which are actually her normal goggles, if the word "normal" can be used to describe anything in this comic.

I would make it トロープたん (or トゥロープたん or ツロープたん).
That is, with a long "o" rather than a short one. With the same rationale as why "group" is written グループ rather than グルプ. And of course, katakana rather than hiragana, for it is a loan word (but still hiragana in the suffix).

If someone cured my critical wound I would at least TRY to appear grateful.

I forgot to specify on ComicFury. I know there are heaps out there in the rest of the world :)

Thanks for the clarification, but even so...

Transcript:

Bob: That plan is completely stupid because-
Ow. Someone heal me already.

Jane: Cure Critical Wounds!
Bob: - it relies upon a set of extremely unreliable MacGuffins.

Bob: None of us have any idea how the Colour Drops work; we can't trigger the saturation burst, nor focus it to achieve the desired effects.
Dragging such volatile artefacts around in time without properly understanding them is a recipe for disaster.

Fred: Surprisingly, Bob just made a valid point.
Jane: Even more surprisingly, he managed to articulate it without recourse to sarcasm.
Bob: Hooray, how wonderful that is. Perhaps we should have a party to celebrate.

Trope-tan: So, we need to figure out how the Colour Drops work.
Fred: And how they interact with the plot holes.
Jane: In short, we need to do science.

Trope-tan: Okay, I have a tsumori.
We go make some plot holes, then wave the Colour Drops around and see if that seals them.
Fred: Good plan. Very scientific.

Trope-tan: And if that doesn't seal them, and they collapse and destroy everything, we'll…
Bob: We'll *what*?

Trope-tan: … um, die!
Bob: This is certainly a very good plan.
