The GPF site will be undergoing maintenance this weekend (most likely Sunday, April 2nd) that may render some parts of the site inaccessible. Individual pages may "break", fail to render properly, or generate errors as we perform a series of upgrades. Ideally, the process should not take more than an hour if we don't encounter any major problems. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

[Comic for Monday, May 13, 2013]


[[Trudy and Nega-Nick (masquerading as "our" Nick) are still frozen in place from the surprise of what they saw when they inadvertently touched each other's hands at the cafeteria. Nega-Nick and his alien are trying to figure out what happened. All conversations in this strip take place in Nega-Nick's mind.]]
Nega-Nick: [thinking] What.. What happened?
Alien: I am... not quite sure... Let me think...

Alien: I may have a theory. My species controls creatures like you through touch, by sending thought patterns through your skin and into the underlying nerves.

[[Trudy has withdrawn her hand and is staring at it, wide-eyed and puzzled.]]
Alien: When we became fused, I became permanently linked to your nervous system. It is possible your hand became and extension of my abilities, and we briefly linked with her when you touched.

Nega-Nick: [scowling] Then what we saw... were her thoughts?
Alien: Hers, yours, and I believe mine, all intertwined. For an instant, the three of us shared the same consciousness.
