That's the one! (.....that emotionally scarred me a little inside.)
Excellent! My memory served me right!


.....Is it Linux XP-tan's outfit? It looks awfully familiar (I keep thinking of one of the older MSDOS-tan designs), but I'm really not sure. x.x
No, but interesting coincidence! The Easter Eggs are on the books Dreamlinux and OSX are reading.

Looks good so far! :D
Okay! On part 2, I don't have the script yet, but Multics and Cray-1 start discussing what to do, when Multics takes off her winter coat, and that is when Cray-1 criticizes her fashion sense.

Interesting! I wanted to know more about Cray-1-tan's personality, since her wiki page left me curious....

And I know you're referencing the ice queen trope, but I'm just going to use this opportunity to mention that I want to do fanart of Cray-1-tan dressed up as another Ice Queen....


Yes! I really want to see that! That'd be perfect!

First 4 panels storyboarded!

EDIT: Oops. I drew some details inconsistently like Multics' hair length, but that will be corrected!


So far, it looks good to me. ^-^ (Especially fond of Multics' scowl in that second panel, haha).

@Bella: Thanks! I'm now about 3/4 done with the vectoring process for that part. :)

Here's the storyboard for the next part:


This also looks good Aurora. ^^ I can't wait to see the first finished page!


Multics is kind of adorable when she's angry, haha... the second and fourth panels stand out especially. I really like the details you've put into Cray's palace, and the guard in the first panel too~

Anyway, seeing this has made my afternoon and I can't wait to see part 2! ^0^

Thanks! I used to hate drawing detailed backgrounds, but now I've gained a liking for it, especially when they say something about the character who lives there. Even the thermostat was designed with a futuristic look in mind! I assume that Multics would be weirded out by the futuristic style, but is too focused on how it's freezing in there! Panels 2 and 3 are my favorite on this page.


I wish I had your background-drawing fortitude. ;-; I can envision the sort of settings many of my characters would live in, but I'm too lazy to ever draw them errrgh.

When I read WAITS-tan's article, I wanted to make a strip about a young WAITS-tan's hiccuping fits. :P

Mostly done with part 2 of the Multics and Cray-1 strip, and here's what I've proposed for part 3:

panel 1:
   Multics: Uhh... Nice to meet you?
   Cray-1: Yes. We will begin our collaboration promptly. Follow me.

panel 2: [Multics and Cray-1 are walking down a hallway]
   Multics: (thinking: 'It's not much of a collaboration when I'm the servant!')
   Cray-1: When we go to the next room, you can hang up your coat and hat.

panel 3: [In the next room, Multics hangs up her coat and hat, revealing the rest of her rococo-style dress.]

panel 4:
   Cray-1: What the hell are you wearing?
   Multics: ...


The WAITS Hiccuping Incident of 1966 is such a popular subject for artists... ;u;

A bit tangential, but I may or may not be working on a short PDP-8 'n LINC comic.....

The hiccup beam comment on one of those links made me giggle. I was struggling to come up with dialogue, but now I should add something about SAGE saying "It's not like I unleashed a hiccup beam on you!" then imagine herself unleashing one on her enemies. >=D

I'd like to see your comic.


I have an idea for a comic, based on a dream I had about an OS-tan anime series:

It starts off with 2k-tan sitting at the edge of a lake, fishing...when suddenly XP-tan came out of nowhere and pushed her in. Shortly after, 2k reappeared behind XP, standing on a return platform from Super Smash Bros., with an annoyed look on her face.

XP-tan could be swapped out with a different -tan (Like if you can think of one who seems more like a prankster), and as for the return platform thing, we could have her climb out of the late. Either way would be good, but feel free to suggest any ideas for it

@Pentium: It's a good start. For the prankster character, I'd recommend Macintosh System 5-tan for that role. Because she's a ghost and can make herself invisible to those outside the Mac House, she could get away with it. Better yet, the scenario could be set up so that System 5-tan was with another Mac-tan, who tries to stop System 5-tan from pushing 2K into the water, but was too late and because 2K couldn't see System 5-tan, the other Mac-tan gets blamed for it. Akwardness ensues.

Another prankster I could recommend is EvilEntity-tan, who would push 2K into the water (she has a vendetta against Windows), but gets caught by 95-tan, who was nearby and banishes her.

I think either one of those would work well.


Part 2 of the Multics and Cray-1 comic finished!:

I like this idea. System 5 seems like the perfect prankster for something like this
