Oh gawd. I forgot how those two fight.

Alright, even I admit that this level of flirting is starting to edge in the general direction of unfairness.
This is getting out of hand.

C'mon, Cammi, give the girl a minute...

Also, I confess to not quite getting what Tati is going on about concerning "contraband". I mean, she may have this "You are supposed to be naked because Domenico wants to take nudes!" attitude, but calling it contraband and demanding it be taken off immediately? And then Cammi agrees that Tati is making sense??? :-\

It's just as well this photo shoot is coming to an end. Sandra is sporting some nasty scrapes and there isn't anyone to cover it with makeup.

1) Cammi likes to look at Sandra naked, but she wasn't being serious with her "makes sense" since
2) She was also expecting Tatiana's reaction in the next panel

On the contrary, those scrapes and bruises could actually do wonders for her image. Just look at what it did for Lara Croft's image in the 'Tomb Raider' reboot. The cover art had her covered in scrapes and bruises, and the reception to her new look was overwhelmingly positive, because it made it easier to believe that she was the outdoorsy adventurous type.

Since Carmon Chamela seems to be a homage to Lara (with Sandra being her new model), I wouldn't be surprised if such a photo shoot had a similar impact for her image and DM Games (by extension).

Sandra's definitely got into the habit of flirting with Cammi, we note.

Lavali beat on Sandra for trying to get some clothes? Can you say "overreacting"?

Also, I see Cammi hasn't given up on flirting with Sandra. Can I at least hope she's not going to do anything irresponsible?

Well, Sandra's the reason she's there and, as far as Lavalii knows, she's stuck there with her until Sandra goes along with the shoot. So yeah, she's cranky, 'cuz she wants off the island so she can get back to her job.

Cammi is the only woman that can get Sandra to relax and experiment when she's not drunk, and Cammi understood when she found out about Pierre. So their casual flirting is just that.

On the other hand, great Tatyana scenes in Ma3 and SotR...
That's what i do... i drink and i know things...

@Zippy: #-o I feel like an idjit now. I was way too much focused on the word "contraband" to grok that someone saying "Sandra needs to get naked!" is obviously right up Cammi's alley.

I thought the revised reboot of Carmen Chameleon dispensed with the post apocalyptic theme.

@brasca: after rechecking: The company prez simply said to give the crowd what they wanted. So Carmon gets her power change abilities back and they axed the gore and death scenes. There was no mention of revising the game entirely.

The new version could simply be T-rated (instead of M, like Tristan was going for), a few scrapes would fit well within that range.
