I disagree. How did his bag end up on his stomach?

I'm sorry, but something has seriously affected my enjoyment of this thread. I clearly got the ong, but it seems something has happened so that now I suddenly don't. I thought we were all friends here.
This has somehow superseded my post:

Edit: Awww. Poor charlie! :( I'm not sure what happened. When I posted my :04H post on that page, I recall both ONGs being visible then. I don't think that Kieryn's :06H edit added the ONG (though I could be wrong). *looks at posts more closely* Oh, I see what happened. You posted at the exact same time :00:22 (yes I still use heresy dating). When that happens, you don't see a preview of each other's post. I think it was just an accident.

The bag could be laying beside Cueball at this point, and that would make more sense given the situation.

*cough*flutterbeedeath*cough*

I think that this is a violent attack by the raptorcat. I also think that Cueball will survive it (unfortunately), perhaps due to the brave actions of Megan. Image So a happy(?) ending, but still plenty of raptorishness. :)

Well, my prediction: A simple "Shoo!" by Megan (while swinging the weaponstick) will scare the kittymolpy away, followed by "Are you OK?" to which Cueball replies "Yeah... It only bit my backpack" etc etc. No real violence there (though I must say - you have a point on flutterbee. Does *bop*-ing a plant count as violence, btw?)

Don't feel bad - ongs are small in the grand scheme of things. A friendly competition, perhaps, but what matters is that the images get posted for all of us to see!

I don't think it would, but that's just IMO. The scenario I picture: if Cueball twisted as he fell, he would land on his face, with the raptorcat on his back, and his bag between him and the raptorcat, preventing it from biting his stick-neck (and keeping us from seeing stick-gore).

Of course, if we Wait for it, I'm sure we'll find out more. :) The next newpix is almost here!

I don't get the negative sentiment against Cueball either. He's clearly the hero in the scene so far, he rescued Megan. (Assuming catpy not friendly.)

(Definitely landed on his back.)

Megan's going to play whack-a-molpy!
Cueball has his moments, but I wouldn't mind a noble raptor-induced death for him. Look at all the entertainment this attack has brought us! :D

Thanks! And yeah, I noticed when doing my Boom de Yadas that GLR's method of stick-figuring leaves his people quite head-heavy. Image

Well, say good bye to Cueball. Looking back, there was plenty of lead up for this violent turn of events, but the lighthearted tone of the thread kind of ruined the suspense and dread of the unknown. These past few frames are quite a shock. Finally, some excitement!

I don't know if I want Megan to save Cueball or not. If the cat turns on her, she's dead. If not, Cueball is dead. Either way, someone is dead, or very seriously injured... and without medicine, or any other people, seemingly, that is as good as dead.

Man, this escalated quickly.

Dead? Unlikely. Bleeding, probably. Broken limbs? perhaps. Definitely not a fun day, at any rate.

That's assuming the catmolpy is actually attacking and not, like, licking, or something.

When I posted my reply, Kieryn's was visible and charlie_grumbles's was not, so it can't have been exactly the same second (though they do both appear to me as 2230.00 newpix)
[edit] But if I look at heretical time they both show up as 22 seconds past the newpix. I guess Kieryn was just slightly earlier in the second.

I should note that I totally called the raptorcat attack (my experimental cat generator simply wasn't calibrated yet):

Doesn't count if it's not calibrated! (At least, that's how to avoid a speeding ticket)
In terms of long-term predictions though, that's a pretty impressive one

That thing on the right, I can't think of any rational explanation. I thing the GLR might be pulling out all stops now for a Grand and Ridiculous Finale.

I have a meeting in 6 hours. I should really coma. But now you've said the F word...

He can't have a finale without telling us why the sea is rising.
The thing on the right is tall enough to be a T-Rex, with La Petite riding it.

Or a BlitzRocket. That would be a more rational explanation.

And then we would have proof that GLR reads the OTT

Maybe it's LaPetite on a horse? (Or, perhaps, a giraffe?)

Wow. It looked like Megan was calling out to distract the raptorcat, but is she actually hailing the alien spacecraft that was hovering on top of the mountain and is now descending to offer assistance?

I would really love it to be a giraffemolpy, but it seems to have too many pointy bits for that.

I don't think this is a finale. The OTC hasn't been going on for long enough yet. And there hasn't been enough actual plot for it to end yet, unless that's the point.
