She's quite functional while in shock. B-)

Here's hoping the girl in panel 4 becomes a regular, even if it's as a recurring extra.

That's definitely some delayed reaction there.

Silly Gotoh. Every random person the main characters interact with become regulars.

Poor Alex. Goes to a good friend to discuss a personal issue, and she just locks solid and provides him with no help whatsoever. He may have to turn to others for advice on this after all.

Of course, he may well get exactly the same response from Christophe, for slightly different reasons (at which point, he may worry that his friends are more homophobic than he thought). Penelope is part of the problem, so he can't go there. I can't quite see him discussing this with Sandra. I guess he'll have to see what Lavali has to say on the subject...

Also, what OS is Marie running? Windows 3.1? That reboot took for-frikkin-ever.

I hope so. I'd like Laure to return at some point.

Honestly, i'm surprised he didn't go to Lavali first.

Talking to one's own siblings about sex might feel a little icky to some people. (Note that Lavali didn't automatically talk to him about her sexuality.) This stuff gets personal and subtle.

That's a serious program freeze there, luckily the background system can run on autopilot until main system gets past the exception error. :p

Man she has a pretty impressive autopilot.

How much time is supposed to have passed during the lock up? If it's the next day maybe we'll see Marie shadowing Alex and seeing Eloise / Jean in action.

I did think that Cammi might make a random return to pay back Alex for the whole mental scarring thing, but that is a pretty far off chance I think.

You mean Marie? :)

She should really upgrade to an SSD, boot times are so much better.

Fixed, thanks.

I think she was downloading a complete OS upgrade to manage that class of exception. Over a patchy 3G connection.

She is indeed a wonderful artist who could doubtless turn her hand to anything, but from what I've seen, I don't get the feeling that she's very interested in depicting some of those bits in all their wrinkly Lovecraftian glory.
