My thoughts exactly.
And so it begins.
That’s exactly what I was about to post.
Well, what do you want?
How will it end?
And tears. Don’t forget the tears. Because tears are an essential part of every Willis plot.
That’s sweet. Why didn’t I see this coming?
Did you open the door?
AHH DINA i love her
YES :D:D I am approve
Eventually DoA will just be a full on softcore orgy.
Also … dwaaaaaaahh. She wuvs Walky.
I need to start a chart like Robin in SP.
WRONG, sir, for nobody has pulled the drama tag yet.
This series has a pre-pulled drama tag. People were breaking up and other non-comedic things within the first few strips.
One day it’s gonna be like “Omigoshyourtheboythatdrewthisomigoshomigoshiloveyourightnowilovedinosaursilovetrexesiwannamarryyouanhaveyourbabiesanraisethemtobedinosaursanlikethemandandandand-”
“I JUST. DREW. A DINOSAUR. ._. GET HELP.”
Aaaaaand of course that ran too long and right under the Twitter feed. >_> Goddamit.
It actually makes the big ramble even better, like it just keeps going and going until she finally get interrupted.
that or mike will say it was him to screw with walky and we will all still be sad
No better reaction can be had.
Not even BONERS?
Girl boners ftw.
What a beginning to such a repeat of failed history!
Let’s hope that they learn their lesson from the parallel versions of themselves.
They can only learn from it if they’re aware of it. I hiiiiighly doubt they know another universe is out there.
In other words, we’re all fucked. But HEY, it’s not like Dina’s gonna die this time around, right?
Somewhere Willis is rubbing his hands together and chuckling darkly, I just know it.
Isn’t that his default state, though?
Willis = Mr. Burns? That explains so much
…his *hands*? riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight… ‘hands’…
Dude, look again, I don’t think it is his “hands” he is rubbing.
Except Mike. Mike is aware of the other universe just to be contradictory.
Mike is a pandimensional immortal being. There is only one of him in all of the multiverse. We should be thankful.
So in other terms he’s Unicron from Transformers?
Learn not to lock yourself in with a bomb?
Maybe she’s not falling for the artist but the subject of the art!!
Introvert Co-ed vs the T-Rex. I think I’ve seen that film.
King of the T-Rexs gets reborn as a schoolgirl, I have read that comic.
I still remember the image of Dina blowing up into tiny particles…and the altered version done years later after a comic on Shortpacked.
What altered version?
I have to go find it…hold on…damn, the meme thread got deleted. Damn…
It was this line “For your information, Mike and I pound each other every night in the most epic of hatefucks.” The panel just before Dina blows up, that line is put there instead of the normal dialogue.
Here we go again. Hope that Dina is not going to die this time. Then again since there’s no Britjas in this universe, she’s going to be just fine, right?
The avatar just makes that cheer great. “Hooray! I get to LIVE!”
Which character do you secretly call nobody?
I’m guessing Becky, just because she appeared in only one strip.
6. 6 strips, that is a few more than 1.
Your avatar makes my heart smile.
Obviously its Shaggy!
Character? In the singular? I fear you underestimate Willis.
Is it just me or does the smiley face look sinister next to that post?
Not just you.
Expulsion for underage drinking, decent exposure, and vandalism, perhaps?
Is “decent exposure” when someone exposes themselves but the view is so nice that nobody minds?
That was slightly disturbing with that avatar, because I pictured it being asked (in all seriousness) in character.
They’re just “going to another dimension!”
Well, that’s a relief.
Do you mean that no one will die or do you just mean that no one will dye their hair?
“…at the moment.”
“…but you’d be surprised how long comas can last.”
This worries me. Because I am well aware of the many terrible things that can happen to a person and still NOT kill them.
That is why there are “fates worse than death.”
With this setup, nobody may be dying, but peoples souls are definitely gonna be shattered.
HELL YEAH DRAMA.
EVERYBODY LIVES, ROSE! just this once, EVERYBODY LIVES!
what? SOMEBODY had to say it
Noooooo! Don’t do it Dina! It can only end badly!
Willis promised that there will be no Dina-killing.
Cute Dina-face is somewhat mitigated by the memory of Mike/Dina from the regular universe.
Aw, to hell with it.
It’s shipper-baiting week on DOA, isn’t it? I approve.
I just hope there’s no Dennis Nedry ending for her.
Oh god I hope not! That was a horrible way to go, even if he was a dick!
Willis is going to make us love Dina. He will then blow her up even worst than the first time.
…and this time, it’ll be Amber’s fault.
This can either end in a large explosion, or it somehow blowing up in Walky’s face
For a recent MA-level discussion-oriented class, my notes generally resembled:
And I got an A for participation.
I like how a doughnut is part of his standard medkit. Also how he’s been shot in the baghead and isn’t bothering to use the medkit. He’s hardcore Murray Poppins.
haha Faust is a very special doctor of course he has donuts with him.
I… don’t see a gunshot wound.
It might be worth noting that this is a picture of (Doctor) Faust from the Guilty Gear fighting game series. He wields a giant scalpel (among other noodle implements of war) and wears that bag over his head with the hole in it so he can see where he’s going.
Look up game footage of him. It’s quite interesting to watch.
Except for math class where my notes are me taking down the work up on the board, all of my notes look like that. I have auditory processing issues and am an extremely kinaesthetic learner. Doodling or knitting during class improves my ability to process lecture and retain information far more than attempting to take ‘real notes’ does. Attempting the latter means I actually absorb nothing so it’s super counter-productive.
Everyone’s different, is my point. Notes are meant to help you study, retain information, and follow along. If doodling helps you with things, then they’re effective notes.
I tend to think of notes more as a measure to make sure the information is recorded, that you might verify it later thus counteracting natural degradation of memory from the length of time between the beginning of the semester and exams. Basically a failsafe in case you forget a couple details.
Then again, I’ve always been an excessively auditory learner. Terrible at visual or kinaesthetic maters. If I’m looking to follow along and retain information all I really need is to sit down and listen. So yeah, along those same lines. Your notes are what you make of them. So long as they’re fulfilling your needs it’s the farthest thing from unproductive. Really, that’s half the educational experience. Figuring out what your methods of attaining success are.
didn’t see that coming.
Noooooo. Not again. Noooo.
*serious fayse* NO.
Do you like ANY pairings?
I like Joyce x Walky!
I like Danny x Billie! : D
In all seriousness, though, I do not like Dina as a love interest for Walky.
She liked him for who she could MOLD HIM INTO BEING. Walky was trying to drown out the emo in sillyness and what did she do? Complain about being his babysitter instead of accepting that trait.
Walkys hoodie is wrinkled, but the minute he wears a pressed shirt shes all over him.
Plus theres the whole “date rape” thing she had going on with Mike.
I see where shes coming from, I get her reasoning, but I don’t like her for Walky. Not even Mike. Good kid, though. Desperate, kinda.
I can understand being rather displeased with It’s Walky! era Dinah. This being a (presumably) different Dinah, however, I’d be more open to the idea, myself.
It’s worth noting she wanted some normalcy in a world of craziness. Her methods of attaining it might’ve been flawed, but I can’t blame her for doing everything she could to carve out some sort of existence outside of being ‘the unimportant background girl’.
DoA, on the other hand, doesn’t have two-foot tall alien dictators, alternate-universe British ninjas, or a cheese-headed pseudo-god. (At least, not outside of cartoons.)
She’s had very, very little face-time in DoA, and what little we have seen of her just shows she’s shy, or at least not good with groups. Give her some time to devlop an actual character before writing her off.
Some characters have remained constant; some have changed. We don’t know either way with her.
s: You do make a good point…they were raised in different environments….
Ok, ok, I’ll give her time.
I like this Dina, but there is no excuse for the “It’s Walky” era Dina. She was a rapist. That doesn’t get excused easily.
Yeah, I way disapprove of that >///<;; I wanted to smack her and kinda lol'd when Mike did the same to her, what goes around comes around.
and now she has a really cool hat, so that makes all the difference. ^_^
xD I DO love her hat!
is that supposed to be the 11th doctor getting eaten by a dinosaur!? if so it’s made of more win than normal!
It’s Jason, the graduate TA.
And everybody knows that Jason’s the TWELFTH Doctor.
That was my first thought upon seeing this as well. (In one corner of my mind it’s still Eleven being eaten.)
She only likes the picture. And doesn’t know they’re Walky’s.
Please don’t crush her again. That devastated me the first time. I was depressed for a week over that. And then couldn’t understand why I was so upset about a fictional character.
love triangle say whuuut
Amber has a thing for My Little Ponies, Dina has a thing for dinosaurs, so the question is:
Whose turn-ons are we gonna see next?
Well, who’s left? We know that Walky and Dorothy have a soft spot for the same fictional cartoon, Joe likes pretty much anything with boobs, Billie likes the bottle, Danny likes nerdy girls in glasses, Roz likes being on camera, Ethan likes Batman, Ruth likes femurs, and Mike does your mom. I guess that leaves Joyce, Sarah, and Sal.
Personally, I’d kind of like to know what makes Sarah weak in the knees. The fact she’d probably be determined not to let it show only makes me more curious.
Didn’t Joyce seem to be a big fan of Twilight or doesn’t that count?
Don’t forget Daisy & her chest windows.
Thanks for reminding me, I cannot believe I forgot Daisy’s fetish so quickly.
Someone with your avatar should have a spreadsheet – which you update hourly – of everyone’s turn-ons.
Nooo no no no. In this universe Dina has a thing for *Jason*. That’s why she’s so happy, she now has her own piece of Jason fan art.
“This is going right up on the shrine!”
Actually, I do kind of like that idea. Dina and Jason would make a very cute couple.
Ooh, I like that idea!
And she even said “Pardon” instead of “sorry”!
…Am I the only one who finds that relevant?
super cute! i love dina!
Damn! I was hoping to be the first with the new Dina gravatar.
Huh, when did the banner change from Sarah to Joe?
Check the latest blog entry.
He ‘Joed’ his way onto it.
Will she actually find out who drew it or will there be a case of mistaken identity?
Good thing she didn’t get Mike’s notes!
Aww Dinah is smiling! yay!
Yay! My favourite character gets more coverage!
For a couple of seconds after I read your comment, I thought you wrote cleavage.
That WOULD be a different universe!
…or a quick lunchtime trip to a plastic surgeon.
gosh, I wish i could get that last panel in iPhone wallpaper size.
Is there a Drama Tag in the DOA universe?
Cuz I think Senator Desanto may have pulled it…
It would actually be nice to see a little bit more Robin, even though she’s not in “college.” Assuming that she (and by extension, Roz) is still from California (SP! is set in SF) I wonder why Roz decided to go to Indiana? That might be a interesting storyline.
Everyone in DoA is from Indiana. Well, not Jason. But everyone else.
Okay, good to know. Interesting to think how Robin’d get into Congress without Cadbury Creme Egg cereal-induced madness.
Whoa! Joe took Sarah’s place in the header! That was overnight, right? I can’t have missed it that long, right?
Yes!!!!! I am now so so so happy. My first thought when Walky drew the dino pics was: ‘When’s he going to draw one for Dina?’ And then I remembered he doesn’t know Dina, but… Ha! Now she’s got one. Let the Dina/Walky shipping commence. *rubs hands together plottingly*
And for my next unattainable dream: Jason gets his own storyline. Please?
I thought that was an adorable strip. Then I read the title, remembered when she cried that word in, “It’s Walky”, and felt my heart break a little.
I’d forgotten about “Mine”; “This was the best I could do”, that scene still brings me to tears
Yeah. It still gets me that her last words were an apology.
Which strip was that? :/
Oh, geez. Like I didn’t want to hug that fourth panel badly enough already.
No one has yet asked the question, who’s notes did Walky get?
Stay tuned for the next episode of…
“With My Penis”
And now we know where the 11th Doctor got his spiffy bowtie.
So who got Mike’s notes?
Getting eaten by a dinosaur? No biggie. Losing your bow tie? Tragedy.
Okay, NOW you are just screwing with the shippings.
New rule: everyone is compatible with everyone in the DoA universe. EVERYONE.
This is a new rule?
Until recently it was an unwritten rule for the fandom, YES.
She’d be better off with Walky than Mike, but seeing as how the former has a crush on Dorothy I don’t know if this is going anywhere.
Alternate universe, same nasty relationship maze.
I guess Jason really did misplace Walky’s notes/drawing.
I think if I was being eaten by a t-rex, I would DEFINITELY want to die with a bowtie on.
TYW, her smile put the biggest smile on my face!
Dina: “Well, they’re my notes now.”
I’m thinking of Was Not Was, because of Walky’s Dinosaur that Dina saw. Can everyone get on the floor?
Bring back Dina! Bring back Dina!
The T-Rex Eating the TA cartoon is definitely the second best cartoon of completely random bad things happening to someone drawn by a fictional character I’ve ever seen, after Shen Li-Min’s cartoons of Jack Hawksmoor losing his hair.
Is this Dina gonna explode too?
