154: Spin up or whatever.

154: Spin up or whatever.

Remember when I said there’s seven pages left? I think I may have lied. It might be less than that.

A lot of people called what was going to happen, though the consequences were a bit off.

Also a lot of people seemed pleased with some sort of fallout reference, and I hate to tell you I’ve never played any fallout games nor do I care about them at all so I have no idea what you all were going on about.

    LESS THAN SEVEN?!

    DO THEY DIE?!
    DO THEY LIVE?!
    ARE THEY EVEN GONNA EVER KISS?!

  2. DoctorLeft

    "psssshhhh," that's the sound fluids make! This is not good.

  3. worrywort

    oh no he's going to die isn't he

  4. Orin J.

    SSHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIII-

  5. Not a name.

    Good news, I figured out what that password you just messed up is. It was a morality code they installed after I flooded the enrichment centre with a deadly neurotoxin to make me stop flooding the enrichment centre with a deadly neurotoxin, so get comfortable while I warm up the neurotoxin emitters. Goodbye.

    I was going to try to come up with a clever comment here, but I don't think I'll be able to outdo that one.

  7. JeKo

    OMG HES GOING TO DIE IN THERE AND THEYRE GONNA BE LIKE 'I LOVE YOU' 'I LOVE YOU TOO' AND THEN SILENCE. AND SCOUT WILL CRY. AND THE TEAM WILL DRAG HIM OFF AS HE'S WEEPING. OH GOD LET ME BE WRONG

  8. Suzaku

    Oh no. That sound totally sounds like some sort of liquid or gas that's going to make poor Jordi's day even worse.

    On a side note, it seems like forever ago that Jordi was called "Spy". Especially since I've been reading so much TWIYEH where they quite obviously DON'T call him that. It threw me for a loop for a sec.

  9. Raicuda

    OH SH!T. JORDI! PLACE THE MORALITY CORES IN THE INCINERATOR! HURRY! Wait, Incinerato-

    I MEAN ON THE COMPUTER!!

    Waaiit…

    FORGET IT, DO SOMETHING!! D:

  10. LaGoingLoco

    Naw c'mon man. They all gonna make it, this comic has been so nice and fair all the time, I'm sure of that *forever optimist*

  11. AkiraRen

    Not sure if I like the way this is going

    -Eternal QQ-

  12. The Snark Knight

    You know, I consider myself a very rational person. I love movies/books/comics/etc, but I don't like or understand when people yell at the characters in them or get worked up over the characters' fate. I'm also patient with cliffhangers. My point is…

    HOLY HELL WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEM AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHGGG

  13. Kharn

    overdramatic much?

  14. Kharn

    obviously Solly killed everyone and destroyed the teleporter, Jordi's gonna die of poison gas and Scout's gonna die alone and scared. *grabs popcorn*

  15. @Abadiddly

    Noooooo!!! You can't die Jordi, I've waited to long for you and Scoot to escape! D:

  16. The Snark Knight

    Aw, c'mon, don't be such a…Oh. ;p

  17. Drago

    I really, really hope that this isn't going to end how it looks like it's going to end after that little comment about 'less pages'. 😐 I've loved this comic from number one, every little twist and turn, but ending things like that is just… Cruel. I wouldn't even attempt to try to make an artist/writer change their mind about something so major, but in the words of Private Buckley, "This is gonna hurt…"

  18. Guest

    Omgosh Noo! It can't end soon! This comic is SO GOOD! D:

  19. Raicuda

    what About BLU Sniper (Liam) and 1st RED spy (Gabry)? Not very fair :c

  20. Mister Man LIGHTNIN!

    oh my god marry me.

  21. Mister Man LIGHTNIN!

    I'm afraid I can't let you do that, Dave.

  22. RoboPhantom

    I'm not getting warm fuzzies here! No warm fuzzies! -flails and hyperventilates-

  23. Filia

    I have the feeling the wonderful good ending we were expecting is going to be mercilessly crushed.

    It's just that, I don't feel you can make a good ending in less than seven pages.

    And the sound of impending doom is not helpful, either.

    Poor Jordi will join the former Medic that'd been locked in the base.

  24. Vault 33 Resident

    The Fallout reference we saw was the computer password system, which was very similar to those in Fallout.

  25. The Snark Knight

    A suprising amount of story can be told from one page. Hell, it only takes one panel to twist things up. Look at this and the previous page- it went from "going well, apprehensive exploration" to "possible tragedy".
    ….
    It's going to be a long week.

  26. GLaDOS

    Its your old friend… deadly neurotoxin

  27. POOTIS

    No matter how many times you say it's not going to happen, I keep on imagining
    'SAXTON HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALE!!!!!!!!'

  28. kittengrl39

    *rocks back and forth* Maybe it's all a dream… aaallll a dream… and Jordi will wake up in TWIYEH… yeah… *gnaws on nails anxiously and waits for the next update*

  29. Moofius

    Oh gawd, is it neurotoxins? Tell me it's not neurotoxins. It's neurotoxins. ;D; </3

  30. LaGoingLoco

    Ssssh, they're in heaven together now. It's all good..shh.

  31. Rodrigo

    I find it really awesome how the comic managed to swiftly change from a TF2 parody to something… different. Someone just tuning in wouldn't recognise them as TF2 characters, except that Scout still resembles a scout a bit, and the teleporter. Other than that, seeing them wandering around an abandoned base, and not suited for their usual business, gives this feel of something completely different, their own, but if you follow the comic, you can see it all falling in place.
    As sad as I am to see it end, I'm as excited to see how it'll end.

  32. CaZsm

    OH GOD NO BAD PSSSSH.

  33. Xeroop

    fluids?
    I was thinking of some kind of toxic gas. LOOK OUT THAT COMPUTER IS GLaDOS!
    Either way, it can't be good.

  34. DoctorLeft

    Yes. Gases are fluids. Liquids are fluids too.

  35. flying democreeper

    "i dont love deadly nerotoxins" – the late cake major

  36. caiser

    New theory: they'll get Jordi out of there, but won't have any place to go as the building is sealed, so they just hop onto the teleporter back to the base. :Va At least…no one dies?

  37. Dr. Ethan Asia

    At first I wanted it to be all bliss and happy and yay, but now I think I like the idea of one of them dying.

  38. You Laugh You Lose

    Sincerely I don’t care about who dies or who lives, all I want is an ending that wraps things up and properly explain what has been going on in the last 154 pages. Even if it was all a war game with no purpose, I want an in-comic explanation that it was a war game with no purpose.

    And unless something big happens in the next pages I seriously doubt we’re getting that, honest. :

  39. Veritas

    D:

    Less than seven?! No it can't be less than seven! It seems like yesterday when this comic hadn't even got fifty pages…now it's less than seven to go. ;_;

  40. The Snark Knight

    You too? Plenty can happen in seven pages!

    Go find any consecutive seven pages and try to notice the progress from where you began to where you stopped.

  41. Raicuda

    *Bawls*

    *Sniff*….Gabry….Liam…*Sniff*

    *Bawls some more*

  42. Jon

    I mentioned this last week, but I find that's Kytri's only weakness in storytelling; she just reveals too much in the page description.

    To use examples from TWIYEH, I'd rather learn through the story that Rika (the sword vampire girl, if I'm getting her name right) is a bitch, or that the Nai'kish (sp) are foiled by Gabry's ani-magic. When we're pulled out of the story and straight-up told "okay, this is what's happening right now." It detracts from it a bit.

  43. Bazo

    Holy…This Is Getting More and More exciting 😀

  44. JeKo

    NO xD

  45. superted

    Worse, the sound of poisoned gas.

  46. Superted

    Nacho cheese is also a fluid. Lets all hope all this is is a surprise nacho party for spy!

  47. Ozimul

    And then the Teleporter booted up and Demoman blew the door up and saved everybody. The end.

    …. *hopeful*

  48. 494alex

    Oh hell, that's the sound of deadly neurotoxin being pumped into the room.
    I called it, TF Industries is a subdivision of Aperture Laboratories and the automated system controlling everything is GLaDOS.

  49. 494alex

    RED/BLU even. Dunno if TF Industries is correct.

  50. Not a Name

    I just realized, I wonder if Spy is annoyed at having to wear a shirt crusty with blood for what I'm assuming has been >12 hours.

  51. tirsden

    Y'know, some of us don't read the comments and haven't figured the ending out. I wouldn't worry about anyone "calling" the story… I call the story on lots of movies, doesn't mean I don't enjoy the result. Whatever your story is, that's what it is, and I've loved following this one from the moment I discovered it. ^__^

  52. PasserbyBoy

    NO! Sad ending looks imminent! How did I get here?! Do I really want to go back and begin actually reading this comic for real?

  53. uber

    Neurotoxin.

  54. Justpassedby

    Yes you DO!

  55. kittengrl39

    OMG OMG OMG Two days left until the ending I'm so excited/scared…

  56. Jon

    Actually, I think the endings still 4 or 5 days off, but the ball starts rolling in 2 days! I am eternally grateful to Kytri for actually warning us of this hiatus, I used to check this comic daily. This is the first time I've been on this site in 4 weeks.

    Soon……
