Just in case anybody was wondering where the Mimic is. TWC image Neph goes for a ride on Cade (not like that). September's wallpaper is also up, preview is at the NSFW Tumblr. Which is not the SFW Tumblr. Also I forgot to mention this Tuesday but we're doing more with the Bookface, but not much. Yup around here we like to jump on the bandwagon about 3 years after anybody cared.

You know, Loth, you're not even a very good siidekick: a good sidekick would be able to remember her Hero's name. Maybe if you try harder, you can get a bit more screen time in next week's episode of "Chronicles of Cade Highgallow"

Did you mean "(a) second" or "second(s)"?

Referring to the TWC image. I'm pretty sure that is as close to Heaven as Cade will ever get.

Looks like _someone_ forgot which team they are on (or sneaky Cade took the place of one of the Half-mentals :D)

Loving Cade's grin in the last frame :D (don't screw it up :P)

That's a scary shadow Cade is making behind her. You guys see it, right?
Ogre Friday, the 30th of August at 7:06 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
How do you know that Cade's the one making that shadow?
Ed8 Friday, the 30th of August at 10:19 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
1. She can't seem to locate Cade anywhere else
2. He's the only one there with reason to be attacking her
3. Shadow appears to be leaping towards her holding a dagger in each hand, something in line with Cade's attack methodology
4. Creepily evil attack grin fits into Cade's trope-filled acting style.
5. Who the bleep else would it be?
Ogre Saturday, the 31st of August at 12:06 AM, 2013 edit delete reply
Question 5 is the relevant question.
Ed8 Saturday, the 31st of August at 1:19 AM, 2013 edit delete reply
It's a rhetorical question. There's nobody else it could reasonably be. Nobody else has any motive or reason to be attacking her, unless the author took this moment to randomly introduce a completely new character without any foreshadowing who has an unknown grudge against a relatively unimportant secondary character. That seems unlikely. Whereas, there is obvious motive for it to be Cade, since she is in the middle of a fight with him, and since he used a smoke bomb to conceal his movements, sneaking up on her would seem a very reasonable course of action.

answer to number 5. since we seen Cade pull many a classic toon prank it could be just a card board cut out thrown at her to distract from his real attack which he is setting up an array of traps and lures to trow her off her game and claim ultimate victory.
Ed8 Saturday, the 31st of August at 4:58 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
In that case, it would probably be a better distraction if it were in front of her where she could see it - that being the whole point of a distraction.
DC Sunday, the 1st of September at 4:20 AM, 2013 edit delete reply
since she has control or limited control of air one might assume that anything breaking into her personal space might alert her to attack.
Ed8 Sunday, the 1st of September at 2:33 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
That would be an awfully risky assumption to make when one's life was at stake in a combat situation- that having half-air-elemental talents automatically means you can detect objects moving behind you - and having your entire plan depend on a hypothetical ability you don't know your opponent has.
DC Sunday, the 1st of September at 5:02 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
technically she has already shown it with Cade's daggers. she is able to slow there speed and but them to the ground making ranged attacks useless... how does she do this. theory one she could have a localized down draft around her pushing every thing in flight to the ground how ever they would effect her own arrows... theory 2 she effect the projectiles them self her projectiles would not be effected unless she needed to "bend a bullet" which she has down the trick here is that she would have to act almost instantly and make changes on the fly... basically what i am saying with what she has shown so far it is safe to assume she can get some feed back form the air around her.
Ed8 Sunday, the 1st of September at 9:03 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
She hasn't shown that at all with the daggers - she has shown she can move things - that is completely different from being able to detect movement behind you. The two are completely different abilities. If the daggers or arrows are in front of her, the only ability she would need is regular plain old sight - it would work just as well.
DC Monday, the 2nd of September at 12:09 AM, 2013 edit delete reply
not really fallowing an arrow in flight is harder then you think or incoming daggers. it would make more since to 'feel' where they are and react on instinct.
Kort Sunday, the 1st of September at 5:18 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
Sadly all I am seeing is Cade trying to grope her. Hence the sinister glint in his eyes, something tells me this plan is for perversion and not an actual attack plan.
DC Sunday, the 1st of September at 6:50 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
yeah you are most likely right Cade is a coward save when he cant run away or he is doing something extremely stupid or perverted.
Ogre Friday, the 30th of August at 7:07 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
Boy, she really did a lousy job of getting rid of that smoke.
Ed8 Friday, the 30th of August at 10:21 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
If there's enough smoke, and her powers have a limited range, then all she can really do is move it around a bit to clear up the area immediately surrounding her. So far, being arrogant and foolishly underestimating their opponents seem to be the only things the half-elemental girls do consistently well.
Ed8 Saturday, the 31st of August at 1:20 AM, 2013 edit delete reply
Correction: looking hot is also something they do consistently well, but that's just not all that helpful in battle.

Depends on who you're fighting... :D
Ed8 Saturday, the 31st of August at 4:56 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
If I were fighting against Loth, for example, then yes, her hotness would be immensely distracting to me. However, since it seems that in this universe 99% of the female warriors look like Playboy models, I expect that most of the male warriors (and lesbian warriors, for that matter) are pretty much used to it by now and wouldn't be distracted at all. (Except Cade, who will still be distracted by any attractive female within visual range, regardless of how many he's seen)
DC Sunday, the 1st of September at 5:08 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
considering if you are a warrior your life would depend on the fitness of your body i would say yes in a world like that most females would be hot at least bod wise their should be some brown baggers their though.

look closely at the smoke in the last panel and you can see (cade's?) shadow there.
groovechampion Saturday, the 31st of August at 1:30 AM, 2013 edit delete reply
He should toss Bag'o'Goodies on her. I'm sure that thing will keep her busy.

I'm so happy Cade finally gets to look cool!

...

I'll be really sad if that dark shadow does turn out to not be him.
Cade Saturday, the 31st of August at 6:44 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
Cade always looks cool!

When it comes to beautiful ladies (which, coincidentally, happen to be trying to kill you), yes. Cade is that fast. He has to be, to stand a chance!
Phil B Saturday, the 31st of August at 11:12 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
stand a chance of the "beautiful ladies" not killing him, that is.
DC Sunday, the 1st of September at 5:10 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
Cade is a small sneaky pervert... of course he is that fast, that's why no matter where they go every one wants cade.

For fuck sake....if that NOTHING cade wins this fight I will burn down the nearest orphanage and animal rescue center...I am not joking. Besides...if she can control wind...how the fuck does a smoke grenade work on her??
DC Sunday, the 1st of September at 5:11 PM, 2013 edit delete reply
Cade had to win how else will he get a hot blue chick as a love interest.

Have you tried waving your hand around when you have burnt your dinner to clear the smoke? That is what it is like for Mrs Lust clearing the smoke (ie there is just too much of it to blow away)

Oh, and as for the first part of your rant... *hands Dis077 a lighter and a can of petrol*
