Awwwwwwwwww..........

Poor Captain Kiku...

*sniffs*

I just hope they can re-animate her - and that the support will arrive soon - and also get colonel taylor...


I also hope that Galina does not have to see her like that.

I'm with you there, DLK.

Poor Kiku. She deserved BETTER than that. :-(

I was expecting the adrenaline from the fight to clear Taylors head, and see what a mess hew had made of things... I kept my mouth shut because I didn't want to spoil it for others if it were true, or look like an idiot if it weren't (honestly, I don't need any more help looking like an idiot, I do just fine on that account already).

one of my favorite characters is dead, I will be holding a candlelight vigil for her tomorrow....
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

He may already realize something is wrong.

offers tissueNot everything that happens in Luna Star has a happy ending. its a very scary time period. im not sure if i should be sad or happy that we did that...
Aetrun 17th Oct 2014, 6:54 PM edit delete reply
Well, assuming she is actually dead and not almost dead, then you should be glad you have the will to write tragic scenes and sad that such a beautiful character died.

It is in the deepest darks that the light will shine brightest after all.

After the last page it was amply certain this was in store for the Captain, what Rose does about it remains to be seen.

very true..
Tokyo Rose 16th Oct 2014, 7:45 PM edit delete reply

HE BROKE MY STUFF.

That's it, if he comes back alive, he's going to get proctological exams three times a week for the rest of his life due to "scheduling errors" in the med center's software . . .

That is EVIL, Rose. :-D

If I may quote Glory to the Brave by Hammerfall

"Nothing on earth stays forever
but none of your deeds were in vain
Deep in our hearts you will live again
you're gone to the home of the brave"
Centcomm 16th Oct 2014, 6:42 PM edit delete reply

nice quote.. :D
CptKerion 17th Oct 2014, 4:14 AM edit delete reply
It was the best I could think of for this.
I listened to the song a few times.
I seem to do that every time a character I like dies.
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

Good song.. listened to it .. :D I approve.

Ah, there we go.
'Twas time for someone to die.
Centcomm 16th Oct 2014, 6:43 PM edit delete reply

heh .. you don't seem surprised...
Sheela 17th Oct 2014, 7:08 AM edit delete reply

Nope.

It creates tension to have someone die on the ship.
It was kinda obvious something like that would happen even before they set of.
mjkj 17th Oct 2014, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

...and the hints on patreon were also very strong...
Matt Knab 16th Oct 2014, 3:21 PM edit delete reply

Yikes. Um...next?
He's got one hell of a guilt trip waiting for him when this is over.
mjkj 16th Oct 2014, 6:19 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but more for Pensri than Kiku, since for Kiku auto-stasis and -repair should have kicked in...
Centcomm 16th Oct 2014, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

I really cant respond MJ :D
Stormwind13 16th Oct 2014, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

I'm not sure what you are thinking of mjkj. Kiku is DEAD in that last panel. I don't know if her cyberware was damaged too or the wounds she took were too much for them, but Kiku has entered the realm of the dead.

The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins? - Edgar Allan Poe

Medically speaking: She'll be DEAD-dead, in 3 minutes... :'-(
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 4:34 PM edit delete reply

thats for clinical death circa 2014 .. :D
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 7:21 PM edit delete reply

Going to inject her with TKM, CentComm?

"In FGU's Space Opera a character that has died can be injected with "TKM", a drug that stops cell decomposition -- but the reaches the whole body via circulation, a function that stops at the moment of death." Murphy's Rules page 33, last panel. :-D

One word, Storm: Zombies
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 6:15 PM edit delete reply

One thing back, mjkj... :-P

NOT a fan of zombies.
mjkj 18th Oct 2014, 6:32 PM edit delete reply

Me neither...

...but I am no friend of dead Kiku either.
Stormwind13 18th Oct 2014, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

I would rather she stay dead than be returned as a rotting corpse. A mockery of the beauty she possessed while alive. Both in spirit and in body.
Tokyo Rose 18th Oct 2014, 8:35 PM edit delete reply

That would make her a Ninja Zombie Robot. IN SPACE.

. . . cool.
DLKmusic 19th Oct 2014, 12:51 AM edit delete reply
one word to that thought......

NOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooOooo!!!!!!!!!!

I'll see your Ninja Zomibie, Rose and raise you Space Pirate Amazon Ninja Catgirls!
Centcomm 16th Oct 2014, 6:43 PM edit delete reply

This is so true.. wait for it...
Dragonrider 16th Oct 2014, 7:38 PM edit delete reply

No guilt trip because I strongly suspect he will not survive this. The Taylor line did not breed musclebound cyber jocks but brains suspect the DNA he will contribute has already either been deposited in a frozen bank or passed down to a descendant already.
Stormwind13 16th Oct 2014, 7:53 PM edit delete reply

He does have 3 kids with another on the way according to A worried father, Dragonrider. So you very well could be right, Colonel Taylor might not survive.
Sheela 18th Oct 2014, 5:41 AM edit delete reply

Kiku the Zombie Samurai ?

Heh ... kinda has a nice ring to it. :)
Dan 16th Oct 2014, 10:28 PM edit delete reply

I agree

It's one of mine I'm afraid. I like to pretend I'm deep.

Wait.. One heavy hitter is under some kind of minor mind control and the other is dead. I'm not the only once noticing that everyone else is kinda squishy at this point?
Centcomm 17th Oct 2014, 5:57 PM edit delete reply

Thats about the size of it .. :D
Stormwind13 17th Oct 2014, 6:30 PM edit delete reply

VERY squishy... Except for the bots, but they just go to pieces around the Colonel.
Tokyo Rose 17th Oct 2014, 7:45 PM edit delete reply

He's really not under mind control; he's suffering from hallucinations and paranoia. Most of the people who got the wackies folded up fast, but Colonel Taylor is very strong-willed and has a great deal of mental discipline. This makes him far, far more dangerous--he's so confident in his own stability that he can't believe that he's mentally compromised.
T1-G3R2501 20th Oct 2014, 3:52 PM edit delete reply

Stormwind13 18th Oct 2014, 10:17 AM edit delete reply

I looked back to see and that was the color she had earlier too. Wanted to make sure that wasn't blood instead of nail polish.

Red shirt joke getting too old i guess?
Stormwind13 20th Oct 2014, 4:16 PM edit delete reply

I honestly was thinking Kiku was too 'important' to fall into Red Shirt-land. :-p Kind of like Scotty.

Even main characters can die.. they aren't protected.
