  4. Amy

    i said a couple of pages back that it was the happiest day of my life
    i lied
    *THIS* IS THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE

  5. Ellen MacInnis

    I DID NOT EVEN FINISH READING THE COMIC JUST SO I COULD POST THE FOLLOWING:

    *deeeeeeeeeeeeeeep breath*

    yay~

  6. CommanderCooper

    For those of you who were wondering if they were ever gonna kiss… You and I both know the answer.

  7. OniLink

    OH GOD THIS IS THE PENULTIMATE STRIP. D:

  8. Ellen MacInnis

    It's okay. Boy kisses redeem all sins.

  9. Ellen MacInnis

    There was no doubt in my heart, but that just makes seeing it even more awesome. 😀

  10. Amy

    A+ mlp reference

  11. LaGoingLoco

    Oh it's Jordi taking the lead. I would make Me Gusta jokes but I feel to sad about the fact that tomorrow will be the last page :I

  12. The Snark Knight

    ssSSSSSSSSSSSSSQQQQQQQQQUUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEeeeeeeee-
    *clamps hands over mouth*
    Ahem…
    S-so, it's…a real nice night for an evening?

  13. AlpineJoe

    Best. Kiss. Ever.

  14. The Snark Knight

    I KNOW. 😀

  15. Ellen MacInnis

    Oh my gosh someone who understands ;___; *brohoof*

    Secret that's not so secret: I immediately put on MLP songs to dance around in my kitchen to after seeing the long-waited-for Jordi/Jeremy kiss. It was the only thing that could properly show my happiness.

  16. Mister Man LIGHTNIN!

    AUGH ASDFASDFASDF EYSARFJLDSRG DFDFJHZEFEH
    *ahem* sorry about that. I was just about to say
    AHESJKFSEF SFLSJE FEHHEHEF SLEFJSEF

  17. Fffffinally

    Cuuuuuuuuuuute!
    They worked hard for their happy ending. <3
    (Also, Red Scout is adorable)

  18. The Snark Knight

    Mine grew.

    Let me rephrase that: My heart grew.

  19. Mister Man LIGHTNIN!

    You are now 20% cooler.

  20. Jeans

    Aahhh, cuties C:

  21. Ellen MacInnis

    Hey, you hear about those Sportsland Sports Team? I hear they're the number one in points this year.

  22. kettles

    I love you both as I am listening to MLP remixes right now in celebration of this wonderful event

  23. Ellen MacInnis

    *sniffles* You guys are way too nice.

    *pulls out Pinkie's party canon from the latest episode* Who wants a celebratory boys kissing fandom-squeeage-inducing celebration?!?

  24. Ellen MacInnis

    Your heart grew two sizes that day?

  25. kettles

    Me me me!
    Good thing you have Pinkie's party cannon, for she is the best at parties (all the ponies will agree)

  26. silentstep

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

  27. Ellen MacInnis

    8-Bit Winter Wrap up is my CV celebration song of choice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPLsQJJUTmE&fe

    Except at the last stanza where Twilight's singing about wanting to fit in, I'm singing about wanting to know what my life is gonna be without CV to look forward to. ;__;

  28. Ellen MacInnis

    AND TONIIIIIIIIGHT IS THE BEST NIGHT EVAAAAAAAAR

  29. The Snark Knight

    Nay, five sizes. And it's not even Christmas yet!

  30. Ellen MacInnis

    You know, I'm tempted to make a new holiday so we can MAKE something as awesome as Christmas happen right now.

    (I started reading fanfiction when I was eight and slash fiction when I was thirteen. I haven't been this excited about a pairing's first kiss since HIGH SCHOOL. I am a senior in college now. Thank you Kytri for making me feel years younger when all it took to make me jump for joy was two characters finally holding hands and having their first kiss.)

  31. kettles

    I LOVE THOSE 8-BIT PONY SONGS SO MUCH

    but omg yes
    what will the world come to
    what will we do with ourselves

  32. The Snark Knight

    I don't always like slash
    But when I do
    My heart grows five sizes.

    Stay Squee, my friends.

  33. Suzaku

    Ohmygoshohmygoshohmygoshohmygosh!

    AAAA! 😀 Cupid's arrow finds its mark with great success! IS IT CHRISTMAS ALREADY? Because it might as well be! Seeing their love finally requited is such a wonderful gift!

    *confetti cannon* That's real confetti this time. The good stuff. Our last bag. Part of me is going to miss it, but at the end of the day… this page totally deserves it 😀

  34. Ellen MacInnis

    *takes by shoulders and shakes* We do the only thing we CAN do, soldier!

    Write (and slash or draw)
    Slash
    Fan
    Fiction (and slash or art)

    And inundate Kytri with it.

  35. Ellen MacInnis

    Can I just say it makes me so happy your posts live up to your chosen screen name?

  36. kettles

    She won't know what hit her.

  37. Ellen MacInnis

    MORE PONY REFERENCES ON MY FAVORITE PAGE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE COMICS <3333 WILL THE JOY NEVER END

    Your confetti sacrifice will not be made in vain, my friend. We shall party on, yea verily.

  38. Nightwing

    AIEE! I haven't been this overjoyed over a fictional kiss in a long, long time…Oh my heart.
    And I love how Jordi is the one (for once) who knows exactly what to do at this moment, at least for being so oblivious to romance most of the time.
    ;U;

  39. Ellen MacInnis

    She should expect it though. This is all her fault.

  40. The Snark Knight

    I am deeply honored. *bows*

  41. DoctorLeft

    Such a great page. I love it so much.

  42. The Snark Knight

    *Gazes upon the ocean of squees* You ain't the only one…

    *Turns around to see 50-foot wave approaching* And you ain't the last…

  43. Blossom Morphine

    I am rapid breathing, clutching at my hair, losing my mind over this page. THEY KISSED! ;akljf;akjd;lk/nck/lnvmvc
    df

    My roommate is sleeping, and I'm trying to respect that, but. Oh man. They kissed. It is the penultimate page. They are going to leave and move in together and have happily ever after.

    😀

  44. Ellen MacInnis

    I'm just trying to imagine what the comments'll look like when I wake up tomorrow morning…

  45. Ellen MacInnis

    Lol what. My roommate was sleeping and I cranked on celebratory music, danced around in the kitchen, and made tacos.

  46. Soap Lady

    Love the kiss and James' reaction. He doesn't seem jealous, in fact he seems to ship them more than we do. I think he's not attracted to Jordi so much as hero worship or he sees Bleu as a "Cool Big Bro." (Opinion, mine).

    As for MLP and TF2, it seems a natural crossover, oui? Applejack is a perfect match as Engie but Pinkie Pyro is scarily appropriate too. Rainbow Dash as Scout, Rarity as Spy (They hate to be dirty), Fluttershy as Medic (Now 100% less German!) Twilight as Sniper? Would that make Spike the Heavy?

  47. kettles

    PONY REFERENCES PLUS PORTAL 2 REFERENCES
    could this strip's comments get any better?

  48. Ellen MacInnis

    Okay, I have to admit that if I made a Portal 2 reference it was completely on accident. I haven't played the game yet and the only memes I know are SPAAAAAAACE and something about lemons XD

    But to answer your question yes. Yes they can. If we just believe in ourselves.

  49. Ellen MacInnis

    I may or may not be planning to go to Otakon as Twilight Sniper. But you didn't hear it from me.

    And yeah, I agree with you on James' reaction. Dunno if there was any romantic feelings from him to Bleu, but I think he is/will be okay with Jordi and Jeremy. SO MANY J NAMES. Now we need a Jasper and a Jeremiah and a Janice.

  50. Sleepy_Eyes

    AT LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAST

  51. Chas

    It's actually the seventh panel that made me go swoon. But also every one other than that on this page.
    Achievement unlocked, man.

  52. The Snark Knight

    And Jay. It even sounds like "J".

  53. Ellen MacInnis

    They're both socially awkward as fuck, get pissed when you question their mad skills (whether it's book knowledge or sniperability), and both seriously need a new fashion wardrobe from the resident Rarity. It was the logical choice.

    Awwwwww Engiebabies! It's been my personal canon for months now that Engie's a daddy, and I'm so glad so much of fandom agrees with me.

  54. Jeko

    Life. Complete.

  55. kettles

    Ahh no, it was actually Suzaku who made the Portal 2 reference! Just realised I accidentally clicked reply to your comment instead of theirs.

    WE MUST BELIEVE

  56. kettles

    Twilight Sniper is best pony <3______<3

  57. The Snark Knight

    *be-boop* Squee x 9

    Fridge logic: The first four panels made you swoon? Really?

  58. Not a name

    Oh look.
    A new page.
    Oh, they finally kissed. That's nice.
    *Clicks comments section*

    OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!

    *Swept away by waves of squeeing*

  59. kettles

    MY LOOOOOVE HAS COME ALOOOOOOONG

  60. Ellen MacInnis

    Darn you intertubes, getting crossed in the middle of squeeing.

    I BELIEVE IN BOYS KISSING. God I am so happy I'm a slash fangirl. I try to explain it to my friends and they have no idea. "You're a lesbian, how do you find this compelling?" "I JUST DO OKAY ;__;"

  61. The Snark Knight

    Shoulda known, man. *pretends I wasn't one of them*

  62. Ellen MacInnis

    My little fortress, my little fortress, ahhhhahhhahhhahhhAHHHHHHH

    MY LITTLE FORTRESS (I used to wonder what teamwork could be)
    MY LITTLE FORTRESS (til you all shared dispenser with me)
    (….)
    AND SANDVICH MAKES IT ALL COMPLETE

  63. Ellen MacInnis

    MY LONELY DAYS ARE OVEEEEEEEEER

  64. Ellen MacInnis

    *whistles innocently*

    I mean really. What am I gonna do this time of night, work on final papers and studying for exams? Please.

  65. Ch1

    AHDHDODHSOEJ
    I HAVENT BEEN THIS EMOTIONAL OVER ONE OF YOUR PAGES SINCE GABRY
    and oh god james can I just
    pinch your cheeks

  66. Jia_Mekare

    Fair warning, this is going to sound corny as hell.
    I transfered to a 4-year college in fall of 08, right around the time this comic started, and I'm graduating in a little over a week. During all the times I've hated my classes, hated my classmates, hated my advisor, hated myself, this comic has been here to provide distraction, amusement, even sheer adrenaline while Rojo was doing his rojo thing. And while I know this comic ending right along with my college career is sheer coincidence, this feels like a perfect capstone to everything. Some people may turn to music for nostalgia, some to movies, some to certain places, but I know that should I ever need to feel nostalgic for my college years, all I have to do is turn to this comic and those memories will be right there, along with excellent characters, storyline, humor, drama- and of course a little light shipping.

    So thanks, Kytri. Thanks for everything. I'll see you over at Worst Idea. :)

    –Jia Mekare

  67. Ellen MacInnis

    *hugs!*

    I'm graduating next semester, and even though CV hasn't been part of my college experience until last year, it's definitely made an impact. I found TF2 over this past summer, which was one of the worst in memory – my first summer spent totally away from home (on campus taking classes and working at my job), injuring my back to the point of needing physical therapy, and, worst off, having a massive drama 'breakup' with a previously close friend of mine. When I found TF2 I found something amazing and FUN and a way to reconnect with old friends (one of whom went on to become my girlfriend!). And the first thing I do to celebrate ANY new fandom is to delve into its slashy ficcy arty goodness and roll around a bit until I find something nice.

    I found Cuanta Vida. And a few months later, the journey's almost done for me. I love these characters and I wish I didn't have to say goodbye. (I know, I know, they're at Worst Idea and omfg Gabry and Liam are in bed together in that once scene and I totally squeed at that, but.) I've actually started drawing again in part of CV. Looking at how Kytri's improved since page one to this penultimate one, I don't feel so hopeless with my own art anymore.

    tl;dr someone help me with all the feelings I can't hold.

  68. Jia_Mekare

    Unrelated to above post but EFF YEAH ELVIS SNIPER

  69. Jia_Mekare

    Seriously Why Can't We Hold All These Feels?

  70. FINALLY

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS THE KISS I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR SINCE THE FIRST MET 153 FUCKING PAGES AGO!

    I almost didn't post because there was 69 comments but I figured if someone was going to ruin that it might as well be me.

  71. FINALLY

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  72. Raicuda

    OH GODOHGODOHGODOHGODOHGOD SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    *Passes Out, then gets back up again*

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESS!!!! YEEEEEEESSSSS!!!! MY LIFE IS HAPPY AGAIN!!!!

    *Flails Around in sheer happiness*

  73. silentstep

    I know I swooned at the third one– It's Kinsey! And he's okay!

  74. Randomynous

    SUDDENLY, ROJO

  75. Ranger

    There's my RED Sniper! 😀

  76. Jon

    I just thought of 2 things about this page

    1.) that weird feeling that I've been having the last 3 pages… I think I actually forgot this was a TF2 comic, and the sight of a Scout, Medic and Engineer in uniform threw me.

    2.) Why would they put the RED Sniper, who the actually just kinda captured and who isn't really part of the plan, inside the getaway vehicle to test it? He doesn't have any loyalty to them. That being said, apparently he does cause RED Scout got on the bus, at least.

  77. TheNinjaDrawer

    Then you should read it all over again c:

  78. AlpineJoe

    Unrelated to the comic, but I’m reading these comments on my phone, and it is now asking me if I want to call 1 53FUCKING.

  79. AlpineJoe

    I can’t lie; I’ve been frantically checking everyone’s eye color for the past few pages.

  80. Ellen MacInnis

    The answer is yes, yes you do.

  81. Ellen MacInnis

    I thought I was the only one!

  82. PANEL 9 = LOVE

    AND WE GOT WINNER! Ding Ding Ding! Panel 9 and 10 should stay forever and ever!!!

  83. Abbie ze Scout

    ATLAST THEY KISSED! YES!! 😀 😀 😀 *jumps into the sea of fangirl squees* THIS. HAS MADE MY DAY 😀 😀 😀

  84. The Snark Knight

    Well, it's not like RED Sniper has any loyalty to RED, either. He didn't sign up for this shit!

  85. band

    i was going to comment about this; unluckily, the kiss stole his place in the spotlight ):

  86. Dr. Ethan Asia

    And then the bus gets attacked by RED and they all die.

  87. Daniel M

    Stiiilll waiting for the 200 panel Saxton Hale boss fight extravaganza, with only Jordi, Liam (And the Pyro) left alive.

  88. silentstep

    Plus, he's already been betrayed by a teammate once today (yesterday?), and these guys saved his life despite having no motivation to do so; he's got lots more reason to be loyal to them than to… uh… gee, which of his teammates are even left? A soldier, a heavy who doesn't bother to protect his medic, and a demo that we know nothing about.

  89. kwj

    why hasn't anyone mentioned that Elvis sniper is still alive?

  90. slashfilled-mind

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! F*CKING FINALLY! YES!!!!

  91. Raicuda

    Way to be be a downer :[

  92. SuperTed

    Squee!!!

  93. MightyPearl

    Yes. That is all.

  94. Jon

    true, but I still half-expected him to just speed off on his own.

  95. Orin J.

    and so kytri killed half the fandom with squees.

  96. Orin J.

    good, i like to downvote that stuff and i wouldn't have known otherwise.

  97. Orin J.

    but that means it's almost over!

    😀
    D:
    D::DD::DD::DD::DD::DD::D

    I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS FEELING WORKS!

  98. Orin J.

    i applauded Bleu, actually. it's the gentlemanly equivalent of squeeing.

  99. Orin J.

    he went back to headquarters to warn them so they can kill the deserters and he can be the "hero" like he wanted, that's why you don't see him.

  100. Orin J.

    because he'd not taking the chance of them sending an even MORE pissy version of rojo to be the new spy. he didn't sign on to play big brother to some college boy that thinks he knows everything.

    ALSO: RED soldier is probably his bunkmate, and is a horribly annoying sleep-screamer.

    I WILL MAKE SHIT UP UNTIL YOU AGREE WITH ME! ~Orin J.

  101. Orin J.

    all my thumbs up for (And the Pyro)

  102. Chihuahua0

    Moment killer…

  103. Rompah

    [Major emotional response detected. Administering tranquilizers.]

  104. DoctorLeft

    Zombie Liam can take them all!

  105. Jordan

    The moment we've all waited for! 😀

  106. The Snark Knight

    Squaw!!!!

  107. HUNTER

    Yay! Finally! Its about time they kiss! XD

  108. Blossom Morphine

    Oh god. Kinsey. I have a silly amount of love for Kinsey, and I still ship him with Anton. XD

  109. Blossom Morphine

    Let us just pretend he got his own spotlight moment, as he is driving the bus.

    And I will be alone over here, pretending that at some point, he got to have make outs with Anton. XD

  110. Rodrigo

    Then we hear the sound of a hundreds of fangirls squealing.
    Yeah, as I though, a full garage had just enough material to fix a bus for a long journey.

  111. 494alex

    Red Scout is totally the anti-Blue Scout xD Or at least the anti-Early Blu Scout (hes so friendly)

  112. XYZ

    It has to be said: GAY

    But seriously, great comic.

  113. spahsappinmahawesome

    OH GODS I CAN DIE HAPPY NOW. THIS. THIS IS SO CUTE.

  114. Dat mass

    Oh cool new page!
