I’m not totally sure what “This” is, but it’s clearly something Tara hadn’t considered. And there I thought she had a plan.
I’m reading ‘it’ as this: without the memory of Mollie’s pain, Tara could’ve become as much a monster as Wisenschaft. Mollie’s pain has made Tara human.
Of course, I could be reading things all wrong. There’s another way to interpret that glance down Tara’s doing in panel 2, but my coming up with that interpretation just means I’ve read too many sleazy Manga.
no sleaze involved, luckily.
It’s a *very* nice scene, Scott; plus, it’s not at all what I expected was going to happen. So that’s one for you guys. Or maybe one for Benita, since your comments give me the impression she writes most of Mollie and Tara.
This scene is all Benita. She almost always writes Mollie. Tara, we both write more often than not.
…damnit Rob, now I can’t NOT see that.
I got the feeling that Tara’s exclamation was something about her embrace with Mollie, perhaps that she hadn’t really recognized that Mollie’s cybernetic parts aren’t all that well integrated, that Mollie couldn’t return the hug.
I think that Mollie not returning the hug is more to do with still being in shock over the revelation than her arms don’t bend that way.
Mollie’s arms have a full range of motion.
Recently, I said that Mollie and Tara have pretty much the same abilities. For the most part that is true, but I’ve thought of a few differences.
1) Tara has a more damage resistant chasis. She doesn’t have to explore her abilities, she just is programmed to use them.
2) Mollie is more prone to damage, but she has the indefinable human attributions of humor and intuition. Her human brain, though not as accurate, can perform a great deal more calculations that a computer brain can.
I suspect Tara might look down to find something kinda pointy someplace it shouldn’t be.
Her looking down is making me think she have had a few vital organs replaced with mechanical substitutes that could handle the stress, or something along those lines.
I don’t understand the interactions between Tara and Mollie at all in the last few strips
