So for anyone waiting for the other shoe to drop, here it is. Granted, it’s not a very big shoe, but the succubi are still manipulating people. You can call it mind control, or you can think of it as preventing a bunch of super powered individuals from developing grudges against Parfait/Sydney/Succubi in general/each other. It’s clear Dabbler is doing what she thinks is best for the team.  And what she’s doing is basically clipping the emotional peaks. Everyone’s feelings are their own, just a little less hot. By morning everyone will be fully back to themselves, and Dabble will be sweating mana salts, like someone getting meat sweats at a Churrascaria.

She’s lucky Xephan isn’t there, because he might not be as okay with it as Gwen is. He might agree with it, but he’s more likely to inform Maxima. Maxima holds unity cohesion as a priority, but also isn’t about to put up with anything approaching mind control.

“Go away from me now.” is Maxima’s way of saying “Don’t tell me about it or let me find out.”

I decided to make them switch to another language, because it felt unrealistic that Parfait, who only started learning English after finding out her older half-sister was camping out in America, would know English words like “intransigent” already. Even Dabbler and her super brain and language skills would probably not know a word like “breviloquence,” because when she copies a language from someone’s brain, she only learns what they know of the language, and unless that person was a heavy “word of the day calendar” user, “breviloquence” just doesn’t meet that threshold of words that the average English speaker will know off the top of their head. (It means speech marked by brevity and concision, BTW. It’s not the literal opposite of sesquipedalian, but close enough.)

Not that Dabbler can’t easily expand on her stolen language skills, of course, but Dabbler’s the kind of super genius who doesn’t feel the need to use big words to make herself sound smart. Well, usually. Sometimes she does when she wants to intellectually dunk on someone. Even in those cases, she’s likely to expand her vocabulary toward scientific or socio-secual fields, not words that seem to exist simply to justify the need for the word “sesquipedalian.”

Edit: Fixed the revelry/reveille goof.

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.

Double res version will be posted over at Patreon. Feel free to contribute as much as you like.
