Sorry about that, my laptop has some dead keys and sometimes I miss going back to clean up the typos.

Castela and Phix's expressions in the last panel just kill me.

She hugged Phix.

She HUGGED Phix.

The only way this could have been topped would be if she out and out kissed her.

OMG I know, right?

Here Phix was about to scare the living shit out of Luci and Luci turned the tables on her!!! And that knowing little grin on Castela's face!!! Priceless!!!

Castela: "Got ya Tante Phix!!!"
You know that light at the end of the tunnel?

Yeah... it's a bullet. Sorry.

I totally agree, that last panel and the expressions on the faces. May just be me but that reminds me so much of the jimmy buffet song, "gods own drunk".

This reminds me of a short that speaks of human diplomacy in the universe. The gist of it is that they have this disturbing habit of finding the most terrifying and blood thirty creatures in the universe and give them a big hug and want to take them home as pets.

There's a video on YouTube about why we humans take vicious killers and make them pets. I mean aside from the fact that most of them are so cute as babies. And I used to have a cat named George. She wasn't very bright, but she made up for it in being selectively anti-social. If she wanted to cuddle you got cuddled, otherwise you got shredded. :ugeek:
