2016! | January 2, 2016

by Joe

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s been a whirlwind holiday – Christmas with two kids drains more time and energy than a black hole (pardon my Hollywood-esque knowledge of space physics) :D

Hope you all had an awesome holiday season and I hope 2015 treated you well :D Here’s to 2016 being even better!

Enjoy Scene 6 – “Under Control”!

I’m 80% sure Rosa is messing with Smyth’s head an “instructed” Scrufflebeck to comply and follow him to strike later. He is probably on the same level as those teenage vampires that died a while back, arrogant of his new power.

Much as I like that theory Otter, it’s Victor in there, and he was rather synced with Joe before Joe’s awakening, including his link to scrufflebeck. The link to Rosa through Smyth is probably monodirectional, for control and power flow though.

@SomeGuy But wasn’t Smyth bitten before Rosa’s transition to the plant state? So how come Smyth has a link to Scrufflebeck? And how does he have a more powerful mind than the new Rosa?

@Oddish the vampiric link exists, although there is no plant link directly. Smyth himself is possessed by Victor, allowing Victor’s considerable power to be brought to bear on any line that Smythe could access to Rosa. I’m saying the only potential link to scrufflebeck is from Victor, who was strongly linked to Joe during a point where he/they would have bonded with Scrufflebeck, with the potential for there being a psychic link from that.

That aside, it’s possible, due to what little we’ve been told of how the elders work, that the children gain a measure of the power of the elders when a new vampiric ability is unlocked in them, which would make it so there would be a more direct link, since Rosa is the one that embraced Smythe, not one of the other vampires. Not really much information to go on for that theory, but it would explain how a single vampire could give new strengths to the entire race, given time.

@SomeGuy That was a pretty detailed theory, thanks! I, too, am very keen to see how this pans out and to learn what exactly is going on here!

@Niko
C8S18-victor’s mind image’s neck is snapped and psi-nuked. That certainly looks dead. But then…
C8S19-smyth is possessed. It could only be more heavily hinted that it’s Victor if someone outright said “Victor is posessing Smyth!”, even answering smyth’s “who are you” with a flashed “Victor”, then “Joe”, before settling on Smyth, as the merge is completed

Remember when this year was gonna be about more common, shorter updates, and how we had nothing but rewinds and a short update to get back into the story?

Fun times!

Though my comp is dead and what I’m using to check the site can’t display the videos (even if it did the screen is cracked and I need to get it fixed/replaced). Still, I’m checking! Looking forward to having some new stuff to view once I get it repaired

I blame Donald Trump for Joe’s lack of content. Even though im from UK i still blame him for everthing bad.

BloodWolf7

I blame ties for Joe’s lack of content. Ties are terrible things that are clearly doing evil work. Sure, they look nice, but it’s clearly the reason why bad things happen. Someone, somewhere, is wearing a tie in relation to those bad things happening. It is obvious to me that they are the Secret Apocalypse, and working to bring The Pocalypse to life (while obviously working to prevent the truth from coming out)! Scheming, always, to do such things.

Very unskilled, but there’s always a lot of them. You just never seem to be able to break free of them. I suppose that’s to be expected when something can be so cheaply mass produced. Break free, dear friends! Break free!

I’m wondering what the future will bring for this comic, now that Java is basically dead.
