ENTRY ___250




Captain grabbed me by the shoulder to reel me in closer.
With our faces huddled conspiratorially close, zee began zeer story.

“LONG, LONG AGO, A LITTLE GIRL MADE A WISH UPON A FALLING STAR.

‘I WANT EVERYONE’S WISHES TO COME TRUE!’ SHE SAID.”




“This is very nice but can we please stay focused--” I protested before Captain shushed me and continued.



“THIS IS IMPORTANT, MISTER SNIPPY. IT IS YOU WHO MUST STAY FOCUSED. NOW, THIS LITTLE GIRL ONLY WANTED WHAT WAS BEST FOR EVERYONE. IT WAS HER ONE TRUE WISH.



BUT HER WISH ENDED IN CATASTROPHE. THE STARS WENT OUT. THE UNIVERSE SHATTERED. SHE LOST HER BESTEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD.


SHE STOOD THERE ALL ALONE AT THE END OF ALL THINGS, LOST IN ABSOLUTE DARKNESS... IN HER DESIRE TO UNDO HER WISH, SHE HERSELF BECAME A STAR.



IMAGINE, IF YOU WILL, A SHOOTING STAR SOARING THROUGH THE SKY IN REVERSE, ABSORBING ITS TRAILS OF POWDER AS IT TRAVELS BACKWARDS IN TIME, FOREVER AND EVER.



YOU SEE, SHE WAS DETERMINED TO MEET HER BEST FRIEND AGAIN. SHE WOULD FIX EVERYTHING, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TOOK. IMAGINE, IF YOU WILL, BLINDLY THROWING A SPOON OVER YOUR LEFT SHOULDER IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT LAND INTO YOUR TEACUP.

IT’S NOT POSSIBLE ON THE FIRST TRY… BUT WITH INFINITE ATTEMPTS, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN-- EVEN IF YOU BECOME TERRIBLY BORED IN THE PROCESS, EVEN IF YOU BECOME SOMEONE ELSE ENTIRELY. INFINITY DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOU. IT CONSUMES YOU. IT CHANGES YOU INTO ITSELF."



Captain’s purple goggles glittered as zee peered intently into my eyes. I didn’t know what to say.
After a moment I told Captain that stories about little girls and shooting stars weren’t very helpful in our current situation. Zee tsked at me.



“MY POOR SNIPPY. SEE, EVEN A SIMPLE EXERCISE IN IMAGININGS OF THE INFINITE IS DIFFICULT FOR YOUS. ALL THOSE BRAIN-BUGS ARE CRAWLING BACK AND FORTH IN YOUR CRANIAL SPACE, YEARNING TO BE LET OUT.”

Captain gently tapped my head to punctuate the last phrase.

I didn’t argue. Sometimes you had to know when to give it a break.

I love this webcomic.

I've been reading for a long time, I have even bought ze mug on a long lost account!

I'm really thankful for the most recent updates, they made my day when I came back recently! Please please please keep this going, as I am going to head back to the beginning and start all over again!

Wait, ze captain the girl? On one of their many rewinding to fix their world?
Is the dimensional theory now involved in this story?
Is the red matrix guy going to come back? Or is it already combined with the the first Engineer? Or are their red fonts only accidentally the same colour?
How can you get such large and detailed images uploaded without destroying it?
Are you magic?

Now I think Annie and Captein are the same entity??? Especially that "the story" is told in a very mature way, unlike how zee always talks.

The third gif reminds me of the time vortex in Doctor Who. I really love this story and don't think you need to change any of the story arcs. It doesn't need to be especially random or have decent plot, either way however it ends up (I'm hoping it never ends) doesn't matter because its a really cool webcomic. I'm probably going to buy the books.

Every time there's an update with a new page, I get an electric shock of excitement. :D
And as much as I love Pi and Engie, one-on-one Captain and Snippy time is my favourite. (:
(And btw those gif artworks are beautiful <3)

Alexius, I'd like to make some suggestions, if you want them.
I'd make silver mug being back into the regular mug.
I'd get rid of red ANNET, she doesn't make sense story-wise to me.
I understand the story even less than not at all since the new story arc, since Captein becomes smarter and everything had a meaning. Seems like a deus ex machina, didn't feel right.
Lastly, we are getting panels with not much information, all leading up to a big expose. Can I have another panel like' #234', something silly, where Snippy gets the short end of the stick?
Anyway, great story (9/10)
(-1 for silver naked mug thing)

Honestly, I'm thinking this is all a figment of Snippy's imagination. He asked the alien for a fake world, with fake memories a while back. All of this spirals in and out of weirdness, with story arcs disappearing in and out of canonicity.
As the alien had said that they could give Snippy this false story before he dies, but brain damage is possible, I always thought Captein is Brain Damaged Snippy, back in time.
It's the only way my silly 3-dimensional mind can process this.
Also, I LOVE the references (such as the helix fossil in Captein's flying device) or how the plot arcs fit with each other.

Mr Snippy just cannot see.. He is too close. But this is going into strange and wonderful places.....
