The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

Transcription

Sharon: Dex, what's wrong?
Dexter: What's wrong? *Nick* knows, don't you, Nick? He knew all along! That's why he *pretended* he never made me a character!
Nick: Dex, it's not like that...
Dexter: It's not? Your computer says otherwise!

[[Dexter points to a drawing in the background, depicting a man of his proportions, wearing body armor and carrying some kind of spear.]]
Dexter: YOU MADE ME A VILLIAN!
Nick: I stopped drawing it years ago! We weren't friends back then!
Dexter: It's bad enough Ki's fantasy book had me as a stupid troll, and now *this*? You guys sure had a high opinion of me...

Ki: Relax, Dexter... Sure, we had some rough spots in the past, but we've all grown since then, especially you. Don't hold it against Nick if his *old* opinions weren't flattering.
[[Dexter is still angry, with a dark cloud over his head.]]
Nick: Besides...

Nick: Now you can be the repentant villian turned hero! Saved from the ways of evil, but still haunted by his dark side... Anti-heroes *always* make the kewlest characters...
Dexter, brightening: You're... right!

Sharon: Well, that leaves us with two questions. First, who am I and what do I do?
Nick: I don't know. I think the MUTEX will extrapolate a character design based on my artwork.

Nick: And the second question?
Sharon: What's that flashy thingy?
[[Fooker peers at a large red button flashing on a console.]]
Fooker: It's red and buzzing, so my guess is nothing good.
