Okay. I'd like help brainstorming ideas for an end to that storyline.

Alright! :)

Here's an idea using what you have so far. I'm pretty sure SCOPE's supposed to be the Voice Of Reason of the CDC family, so it might be funny if she discovered Multics and Cray-tan fighting and went into stern teacher/mother mode and, I dunno, separated them and sentenced them to time-out or something. I could probably come up with something better, but there's one idea to get the ball rolling. -w-

That sounds like a good idea!

I'll still need to figure out how to work this into 4 panels, but, something like this?:

Quote

[SCOPE overhears Multics' and Cray-1's arguments, and facepalms]
[SCOPE busts in]
SCOPE: That's it! Both of you need a time-out!
Cray-1: But-- But-- Multics started it!
Multics: What? Me?! But you insulted me--
SCOPE: I said... Time Out!
Multics and SCOPE: [bows] Yes, SCOPE.


I'd also like to slip something about SCOPE's backstory as the voice of reason among the CDCs, and not being intimidated by more powerful mainframe-tans. If she's not intimidated by Cray-1 or Multics, then practically no one can intimidate her!

Bella

That storyboard is delightful Aurora! I got a laugh out of SCOPE's seeming cheerful oblivion at Multics' and Cray's disagreement, and her excitement at the thought of Multics being Cray's servant. :D

As well, your script concept for the next part sounds good. SCOPE is one of the oldest CDC-tans and has had struggles with a number of her kin (most notably NOS-tan - whom she had to defeat in battle, if memory serves correct). That alone has probably hardened her and made her difficult to intimidate!

Aurora Borealis

I got parts 3 and 4 finished! :D

(note: if the noses look 'off' to you, it's because I had to draw them in on the .psd file. I forgot that I originally included them in the earlier strips, which were finished in 2012!)

That last panel reminds me a lot of a certain forum member....

Yeah, SCOPE's had to (try) try and murder some fools before.  She's pretty much the entire family's stern mother whether they like it or not.  That includes some maternal interest in the later Crays as well even if they aren't strictly speaking family.

This is .... beautiful ...

Multics' "IT IS ON" reaction in the final panel of part three made my heart smile, and her response to Cray in the beginning of Part 4 drives home the point that she's no pushover, even if she's currently being employed as a servant! Cray's flippant attitude (and troll-lol-lol expressions ^^;) in panels 2 & 3 seems fitting of someone of her power (and, I daresay, arrogance), although I think she seriously underestimates how dangerous Multics can get when she's angry!

(And I really like the full-view of Multics' dress in panel 3. I've been wanting to draw a full body pic of Multics; I may have to use your dress concept. It looks really good!)

On one hand, Multics' dramatic (hammy? ^__^;) delivery in the last two panels is both hilarious AND appropriate. Multics has a deep love of aesthetics and beauty and Cray's insults would count as nothing short as an affront to some of her most cherished ideals. I love how the bold lighting in the last panel emphasizes the tension of the moment -- i'm very much anticipating the next installation!

I can't help it is Multics and I both have a passion for stupid fashion. :C

N'awwwwwwww~~

Excellent! Glad to know that SCOPE giving Cray-1 a time-out wouldn't be out of character for her! :D

Thanks! I liked designing Multics' dress, but I think I should have added more frills on the bottom half. Oh well. It's frilly enough, isn't it? :P I wasn't sure if she was much of a Large Ham type of character, but I think this is a situation where that trope fits her perfectly!

I'm currently working on the storyboards for the last parts, but I'm also jumping ahead to another idea.

I could use some help with this. It's a tentative script of another idea I wanted to draw, about RSTS-tan's embarrassing weakness of struggling with trivial tasks:

Quote

Setting: At the Vintage Federation, many of the Vintage-tans are gathered around to watch RSTS show off her strength, but PDP-1 ends up embarrassing her.

Panel 1: RSTS is lifting weights, while many of the Vintage-tans watch, and look in awe.

Panel 2: Front-view of the crowd
   PDP-1: She's always been very strong, and trained hard. I'm so proud of her!

Panel 3:
   PDP-1: Oh, but I remember when RSTS needed help with the most trivial things! This went on for years! ^_^

Panel 4:
   RSTS: *loses concentration, drops weight*

Panel 5: [Flashback to circa 1971-72, a young RSTS-tan runs to DOS-11, with a peanut butter jar in hand]
   DOS-11! I need help opening this!
   
Panel 6:
   DOS-11: *muttering* Oh for fuck's sake, you're in service now!

Panel 7: [Flashback to 1985; RSTS got promoted by this time, as RSTS was a full-featured OS by this time]
   PDP-1 (narrating): Even after being promoted to major, she still needed help with the same things!
   VMS: You're now a major, and been in service for nearly 15 years, and still need help with this?
   RSTS: Yes...

Panel 8:
   VMS: Dammit... *opens jar*

Panel 9:
   [back to the present]
   RSTS: This is why I don't visit my my family very often. -_-


I'm not entirely sure how to continue the latter part, or if it's good as-is. To make it 3 equal-sized parts, it'd need to be 12 panels, and perhaps I could add in another embarrassing flashback by PDP-1 about RSTS failing another basic task?

I also wanted to play with the Amazingly Embarrassing Parents/Relatives trope. I can imagine all the elders of the Vintage Federation sharing silly stories that'd embarrass their younger relatives! :P

I still want to get back to drawing this, and this other idea I wanted to draw. I feel like I'm finally getting my energy to draw back. I ended up losing it shortly after my last post in this one.

Penti-chan

Yay! ^^

TBH, I still need to write the script for the one idea I posted in here...IDK how long ago -w-;;
