@Toli B: thanks very much! I decided early on that, if I wanted to do a sci-fi comic, it would have to have something other than usual technology since I'm terrible at drawing mechanical things.

@ladybug: I'm so glad to hear that :D

@Niggle: I did finish the other pages! We're so close to the end of the scene that I figured it was a good time to do so, plus it took me so long to return to updating that I thought people might want to reread the chapter to remember what's happening, and this way it's all complete :D (More about Jetii will be revealed soon, ooooo.....)

@Shaleene: thanks very much :D

@YersiniaP: I'm glad Chal came off as seeming like he would drawl a bit anyway, haha. Jetii has the accent of a German who speaks very good English - that lovely crispness and preciseness Germans can have in English, not the "I vill taek ovehr ze voooorld, ahaha!" evil villain stereotype accent XD

One more page next week to end the scene, finally!

I had wanted to put both up this week to get it done, but Arthur passing by left me without power for 3 days, 2 of which were my days off for the week ~_~;

Wow sorry it's been so long, guys! I really didn't expect to have to keep the comic on hold like this. I had a really busy couple of months, between working a full time job at the same time as a part time job through May and early June, then buying a motorcycle and testing for my license. You'd think the latter wouldn't be much of a headache but the provincial bureaucracy does its best to ensure that it is.

So anyway, here's a new page to liven things up! I also went through the scene and shaded all the pages, so they're fully completed now.

@Fusseldings: I'm still around, don't worry. I just haven't been able to get back to updates because I've been really busy the last few months. I definitely intend to return to updates soon, I just can't promise an exact date.

@Niggle: no worries - I'm making you look fast with my own slow replies, haha.

I think the stream gets friggity because a) I'm on a Mac and the Mac version has had problems lately, b) in order to have the chat work I have to use an older version of the Mac version and c) in order to use the older version of the Mac version I have to keep my Java from updating which I think the comp isn't too happy about.

Throw in some high speed internet that isn't so high speed anymore, and it all shits the bed.

@Niggle: I didn't manage to have it going for very long. My internet got really screwy and I had to shut the stream down 'cause it kept booting everyone (including me) from the chat).

@Poppuk: Veo is a click language, so English sounds pretty clunky and mushy to Veo ears. It's only one of the many languages spacebound Veo are likely to hear in the run of a week, though, so it doesn't seem too crazy.

@sydneyfox: yellow indicates surprise (panel 4), or interest (panel 8). Embarrassment will tend to show through body language rather than a colour cascade.

@RAGA: I see it as a comment Jetii is making after noting the large number of homonyms English has (led, lead; blue, blew; threw, through....). Since he's only hearing spoken English, not seeing written English, there's no distinction in his mind between the words. "Cool" is just where it gets really idiomatic (as with most slang). Just like languages on Earth, there isn't really a proper direct translation for idiomatic speech, and the Veo translators can only translate it literally.

Careful, Jetii: being interested will make you not-an-asshole for two seconds...
