For those of you wondering who CoCoPineapple was, well, here’s your answer. In case you don’t recall, which is fair since it’s been like 850 pages since his last appearance, he’s the financial advisor who prevented Sydney from maybe possibly immediately bankrupting herself on rare comic memorabilia. As for the name CoCoPineapple in Arianna’s phone, “cocoa” as in chocolate, used here very much as a term of affection, and pineapple, as in a pineapple (Mk 2) grenade, AKA, a frag grenade, AKA, something that produces shrapnel. It’s a holdover pet name from college.

That of course doesn’t explain why Arianna has herself labeled as “PRHotBlonde” in her own phone. It’s possible I thought that the text scroll showed you what the other person used as your handle, but on reflection that’s probably not true, since I’m sure some people have unflattering handles in their contact list like “SuperBitchExWife” or “Terrible Kisser Guy in Phillies Jersey who I let get to second base anyway because Tequila is my personal nemesis.” I’ve never messed with that on my own phone so it didn’t seem super important honestly. Let’s just assume that Aurelius changed her name on her own phone one evening and she thought it was cute.

How Sydney didn’t notice Arianna’s full name on, for instance, the door to her office, business cards, any press briefings that had one of those info scroll bar thingies at the bottom, or any press releases that got CCed to everyone before release, or any time Arianna introduced herself to someone in a professional setting and presumably used her last name is another matter entirely.

The timing of Arianna texting her hubby to book it to the base and the amount of time Sydney and Parfait seemed to have while they were making out doesn’t quite make sense. Unless that makeout session lasted for like 45 minutes or something, and it definitely didn’t. For one thing, there’s no way a lust-addled succubus is going to be put off for that long, for another, Sydney would be mostly hickey from the waist up. The only way it works out is if when Parfait’s lust aura got interrupted, it took like an hour for the effects to attenuate. That means this “emergency assembly” took a really long time to actually assemble, but that’s a much better situation than if Parfait’s aura just stopped cold, and suddenly a base full of supers snapped back to their fully rational senses mid-thrust like a bucket of ice water got thrown on them. This meeting would have definitely gone differently if that was the case, but apparently Parfait’s aura has a long “afterglow tail” on it.

The August vote incentive is up! Yeah I know it’s late, so hopefully I’ll manage to get some bonus (read: overdue) incentives up as I attempt to catch up.

Oh no! Sydney’s been injured! A Wampa may or may not have been involved, I’ll leave the exact nature of the incident up to you. It’s not relevant to the picture. And before you’re like “Dave, Bandaged Rei is one thing, but floating unconscious in a bacta tank is probably an even narrower fetish.” just check the picture out.

The Patreon version has nudes and variants, and a comic that reveals something interesting about the orbs.
