More Lunar systems joined in on the bet of their Good savings against Charles, in hopes of getting a piece of the Wizard’s infinite pie.



Charles refused to die. Instead, he grew horns and started talking to an imaginary critter on his shoulder.



“DIE. DIE ALREADY! WHY WON’T YOU DIE?”
I uselessly shouted at the live feed.



Charles did not die. Instead, La Macabre lost control of his kitchen and then of himself.
Then, the feed cut off entirely.


The Lunar network went crazed in a mass hysteria about the La Macabre Show suddenly ending with defeat of their favourite cottage protagonist and the total, absolute loss of their funds.

I stared at everyone’s Good stats. Nobody had bet on Charles Snippy to win! Nobody... except for the Wizard. Zee had won all of our Lunar Credits!

“YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU! YOU HAVE CHEATED US!”



I shouted at the Wizard.

“NU-HUH. I HAVE PLACED MY BETS ON FRIENDSHIP! TRUE FRIENDSHIP HAS WON!”



Zee announced.

“HOW?”

I wailed in agony as my account drained away.

“I’VE LOST MANY SNIPPIES. SO MANY SNIPPIES DYING ACROSS TIME AND SPACE. BUT THIS ONE IS SPECIAL, YOU SEE. THIS ONE HAS A BESTEST FRIEND RIGHT IN HIS HEART!” Captain proudly announced, swooning.



“NO! WHAT HAPPENED?” I stared at the chart of Goodness rising and falling and I suddenly understood the endgame, how the Wizard had set us all up. I looked at the big picture, across the game’s entire history that was now visible to me. With every turn Zee’s credit score was increasing, while Snippy’s dropped. Snippy gathered viruses onto himself while The Wizard collected Goodness by helping out sad, broken, lonely applications fulfill their functions.

Snippy stole, broke things, gathered pins, misfortune, viruses and hate, while The Wizard fixed problems, followed the System’s rules and received credits and love.



Snippy suffered as the System tried to kill him over and over and over.
After all, a debtor must become a DEX, that is the rule. However, Snippy had a virus on his side - Biomatrix 117. A virus that had hacked into the Save Point App and Health Plan System, permanently anchoring Snippy in Space-time, never allowing him to die. A 4-dimensional best friend, that protected Snippy illegally, putting Snippy deeper in the Negative credits for System hack violation after violation.



When Director Bell turned off Snippy’s application hub, it had hidden all of Snippy’s viruses. Snippy was a rook that suddenly turned into a Queen. The Royal flush hand that looked like a sad pair. A walking misfortune directed by the hand of true Goodness.

Charles was the Ying to Zee’s Yang.
Charles was the counterbalance, the anchor for the ship that Zee was steering ahead through stormy waves of the broken, dying system.



The Wizard had lifted zeer shroud of pixelation to show me all of this data and I understood how complete and total my loss was, how many moves back Zee had planned all of this.

“CAPTAIN, YOU MAY HAVE THE BRIDGE.”
I surrendered my control pulpit as my credits zeroed out.

Such a cool episode^^ Not much happened, nothing we didn't already know at least, but a lot of the background is confirmed and brought into perspective.

Also: Maybe someone mentioned that before, but did you notice that all of the avatars of the lunar church have three eyes, just like Annie? I wonder... was that done in imitation of their "mother", or is it because Annie is like a god to them? The Statue in the background (Mary and Jesus?) also has three eyes on each person...

Ahh, that explains the minus infinity debt, a bit. Something-something continuosly and 4-dimensionally acquiring debt where time and space have no say...

Well, probably.

And aww, Captain is sure is caring towards his/her citizen. Previously Captain told Snippy about the countless virus attacking him, but wow, turns out Captain are actually helping Snippy by helping all the bad things that comes to him.

I absolutely love how this world is coming together. When you first begin to read this comic series, nothing makes sense, you're pretty sure the creator is insane, but the beautiful panels and the hilarious characters keep bringing you back.

I'm at the point where this world has some weird sort of sense and order to it. I'm finally beginning to understand each character and their role and it's absolutely sublime.

Is there any tiny hope for an official translation of this masterpiece into other languages?
Before was read more on russian, but not now unfortunately. Foreigners find it difficult to perceive the text, and machine translation kills all the charm and romance.
