Runaway to the Stars: Page 15

Featuring special guest the twins (panel one).

Transcript Bug ferrets abound. Their faces have stalk eyes with a pupil shaped like a serif I, two triangular fan-like ears, flat frog-like ears, insectoid mandibles, and a "goatee" of two tufted antennae. Talita abandons her cart in the hall and awkwardly wades through them to get into the server room.
Talita:
Sorry. Excuse me...
SFX: HUFF. rr. eef. HF! wuff.
Ferrets are scuttling in and around the room, moving stuff. There is a row of numbered black server rigs taller than Talita, each labeled "Calcery."
Talita: …Cal? Hello?
SFX: huff. Rr. wuf.

  1. baby bug ferrets in a backpack!!!?!! 😭 aaaaaaaaaaaaa so cute!!! also I am just greatly enjoying the bug ferret chaos in general

  2. Behold the tubelings!

  3. Well, Calcery certainly passed the Turing test for me!

  4. I’d like to hear what this room sounds like. All the soft patting noises and occasional wuffs, probably more relaxing than a crowded room of humans lol.

  5. aah, bring your kids to work day (love that they’re held safe in a backpack)(eef)

  6. The baby bug ferrets are so adorable

  7. eef

  8. OGH THE BABY FERRETS. SO CUTE.

  12. The ferrets like “why she’s saying excuse me? There’s tons of room here, it’s not even crowded”.

  16. What’s calcery?

  17. eef

    Hmm. They really could do with some kind of lollipop man or overpass system.

  18. taptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptaptap

    i love it

  19. Ooh yo! Cal is AI! Also, I had a dream about centaurs last night! Not Talita, sadly, but a random one with a very *very* stretchy neck.

  20. man that reveal of cal being a sapient ai was great! the fact that he specifically brings up that the written centaur languages arent *net* documented makes for an excellent bit of foreshadowing as well!

  21. Oh, Cal is an AI? neat!

    Wonder what they’ll think of the bipphones?

  22. “eef” – the twins
