@Pentium and Bella: Thanks!

That's one of the Easter Eggs! Summer Days was a Darker and Edgier OS-tan fic, right? I can't remember off the top of my head, but if it is, then Linux XP has quite the taste in literature!

There are two more Easter Eggs on the page. :)

I redesigned Dreamlinux's outfit to look more distinctive

Glad that the Multics and Cray 1 story idea is working so far. Here's a tentative script to the first part:

Quotepanel 1: [Multics is standing outside the door to Cray 1's palace]

panel 2:
   Multics: (thinking) I can't believe I have to be someone's servant. I am an aristocrat!

panel 3:
   [She enters and is still freezing]
   M: What the hell? Does some sort of frost giant live here or--

panel 4:
   [close-up of thermostat, set to 45]

panel 5:
   [A silhouette of Cray-1 appears in Multics' view; from the silhouette alone, Multics knows she's imposing.]
   Cray-1: Don't mess with the thermostat, servant.
   Multics: ... (scared)

panel 6: Close-up of Cray-1
   Multics: (nervous outburst) Oh crap my overlord is a frost giant!!

panel 7:
   Multics: I j-j-just want to-- not freeze to death!!
   Cray-1: Fine. Good enough.

panel 8:
   Cray-1: But if I overheat because you turned the thermostat all the way up to 60, I'm going to kick your ass.
(just as non-chalantly) By the way, I'm Cray-1.


I envision Cray-1 as being part Ice Queen, one part Big Guy, another part Jerk With A Heart Of Gold.

.....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

Looks good so far! :D

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....

Excellent! My memory served me right!

No, but interesting coincidence! The Easter Eggs are on the books Dreamlinux and OSX are reading.

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.

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!

Bella

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:

Bella

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

Bella

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^

Aurora Borealis

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.

Bella

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:

Quote
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: ...

Bella

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.....

Aurora Borealis

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.

Penti-chan

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
