More than 90% funded in two days! You guys are the best! If the Dumbing of Age Kickstarter reaches $20,000, I’ll be able to do another run of the out-of-print Shortpacked! Book 1!
She’ll be born in time for me to graduate! whoo
Only if it happened in DoA, SP!’s time is a lot faster.
I graduate within the month.
…You went there. You really went there. Months after I did. Bravo.
That pink dinosaur wallpaper is the cutest.
Robin-as-Jacob simultaneously makes a lot of sense and creeps me the fuck out.
Any name ideas going to come up soon?
I stand by Anita. Anita Warner.
it’s a girl. a girl warner. Obviousely her name is Dot
But call her Dottie and you die.
With yer femur in your faaaace ….
well if we’re going there than i vote for “Princess Angelina Contesa Louisa Francesca Banana-Fanna Bo Besca the Third”
When you mentioned the wallpaper I scrolled up to check, and had a bit of an Escher moment, thinking the white was supposed to be the dinos and the pink was empty space.
Took me a moment for my brain to recalibrate.
okay call me a nerd but when you said recalibrate I thought about Huron particales.
I thought about Garrus.
the wallpaper is a hint/spoiler: Dina Warner. mike you incredible bastard
I support the Dina theory
lil’ Warner’s wallpaper got opinions
Why would her last name be Warner? They’re not married. It could be either of their names.
Amber isn’t likely to volunteer the last name of her father, regardless.
No, see, Amber would be drinking blood out of a styrofoam cup if that was going to happen.
Gah! Twilight references! And I understood it! Fuck!
Hold your self together! *slap
Oh get in line.
It’s TEARING ME APART!
That’s what your mom said.
Next time you guys find a Twilight reference you keep it to yourselves, will you? Seriously, wedon’t need to know. Jeez Ò_Ó
As Nash would say… if I have to hurt, so does everybody else.
No, we don’t. You did something that resulted in your being able to identify a Twilight reference; you alone must pay for it.
Robin’s a womb robber now? OOOOOL!
Thank you, PM.
Now all I can think about is Robin approaching Amber, ramming her arm elbow-deep into her cooch, yanking out a squealing baby, holding it aloft in triumph and declaring for all to hear, “THIS. IS MINE.” And then casually sauntering off with the newborn tucked under her arm.
Sounds more like a Mortal Kombat fatality.
“Robin Wins. Birthality”
If the Babalities were like that they’d have to invent a new rating for games to go above “M”.
Also, they’d need all the characters to be nine months pregnant when they join the tournament. Even the male ones.
Why do I have the sickening feeling that what I’m describing already exists somewhere on the internet as fanfic?
I thought AO (Adults Only) was the rating above M, it’s just not commonly used.
Cos thanks to the MPreg invented by fanfic writers, IT DOES EXIST!
I’m not sure of that counts as heart-warming or eye-watering.
I think the technical term is “Womb Raider”.
As far as I have noticed, “Womb Raiders” always refers to Lara Croft porn.
I thought that was tomb rider.
Womb Rider? To be fair, you can pick plenty of PS1 era videogames and come up with pornish names for them. Bondage Gear Solid, Pervo the dragon, Splash Bagof***.
Robin as a support for Mike and Amber’s baby. How, er, strangely fitting.
Well Robin is partly to blame for this baby’s existence.
…So is Leslie and that one government guy…ya know…if you think about it.
Robin will teach the baby to run so fast. It’ll be fast as a kenyan.
But will it be as fast as 400 Kenyans?
She’ll be so fast that Mother Nature would be like “Sloooow Dooooown!”
I see you commenting the response I had and I’m like “fuck you” ooh hoo hoo!
And I’ll kick you with my ENERGY LEGS!
If she was mother nature would be like SLOW DOOOOOOWN
She’ll run as fast as KENYANS people will think she’s KENYAN in a race against actual KENYANS it’d be a tie and she’d be deported back to KENYAAAAA
I very much enjoy the pink T-Rex wallpaper.
Asking Robin to babysit is like asking Pinkie Pie to babysit. Can’t wait for the hijinks.
I was going to point out that I doubt this baby can fly or walk through walls, but considering one of her parents is genetically altered with alien DNA, I don’t think we can entirely rule it out just yet.
Or set itself on fire. Or walk ON walls. Or…um…hm.
I needa go rewatch Jack-Jack Attack.
Transform into a demon or turn into metal. Your welcome.
Oh Twilight…. is there anything you can’t make creepy or awkward?
I suppose it can’t make itself creepy – well creepier…
Real person slashfic of your friends?
Does it occur to anyone else that Mike and Amber’s baby will look pretty much exactly like Dorothy?
That would fit with the Dot Warner name suggestion.
So will the baby inherit mikes abductie powers? this has been bugging me for months
Not the abductee powers, but the Martian ones definitely.
Unless he really was resurrected by some sort of weird Glasso magics instead of the TUBES.
Ahh thanks for clearing that up
… I feel really guilty I’m more excited about this fictional baby than my Cousin’s off spring.
Craziest-theory-that-could-be-slightly-plausible-given-the-nature-of-this-universe: Mike impregnated Amber with Dina.
Proof: Dinosaur wallpaper.
I rest my case.
I support that plot line.
Count me in too.
Or the daughter’s going to be named Dina but I’m not putting my hopes on that.
Odd. I just checked the Lil Warner character page, and the pages of name speculation seems to have gone missing. Dina Warner has been a name candidate for, like, six months, at least. Seems there is something of a consensus that it is something Willis would totally do.
I dont know much about Twilight, but I know enough that I wouldn’t be at all surprised if, during delivery, Mike preformed a C-section with his fists just to speed up the process of telling his daughter that he fucked her mom to her face. Didnt even need a nickle
I can’t remember what it’s called, but I’ve heard there’s a manga series where EXACTLY WHAT ROBIN SAYS happens at the end- the hero sees his crush’s baby daughter and thinks “She’s going to be my wife”! Deliberate ultra-obscure reference?
Pretty sure it’s a Twilight reference, but I could be wrong.
It ain’t manga, it’s Twilight.
At least, I hope there isn’t a manga of Twilight…
There is a Twilight graphic novel. And now you know.
There is a manhwa of Twilight (AKA Korean manga), but it’s only of the first book so far.
Yeaaaah… But hey, at least it’s just the first book and not anything new, right? New books could prolong its relevancy. *Shudders*
Robin doesn’t watch Doctor Who, does she? Because I’m pretty sure once she finds it, she’ll just believe she is the Doctor.
Some people are crazy like that.
Willis doesn’t watch Doctor Who, so somehow I doubt Robin does.
Unless Robin has somehow become her own separate entity that exist separate from Willis himself and his comics – in an odd meta kind of way just as Willis is a character in his own comic…
Plus Robin is really the Doctor’s millionth regeneration (because why not) and even Willis is unaware of it because she has been toying with us all…
And she really will be their daughter’s love interest in a Twilight-esque fashion just because! And the baby will really age quickly!
Then a love triangle between Leslie-Robin-The Baby will somehow begin! And then Faz will somehow get involved! Then Malaya will somehow get involved despite being straight (and it won’t involve Faz)!
THEN It’ll turn out that the baby is really ETHAN who is actually ULTRA CAR who will be Malaya’s love interest and MALAYA will turn out to be an alternate universe version of ROBIN!! And she’ll also turn out to be this universe’s past version of JACOB as well who at some point will turn into this universe’s version of FAZ! And of course it turns out that in one universe all these people merged together to become LESLIE who turned into AMBER who eventually became her own BABY!
Whom all exist at the same time -
Just as MIKE had planned as the biggest fuck you to the universe itself!
and all of this takes place
IN THE MIND OF THE PINK DINO WALL PAPER!
…So Robin is Sickness, is what you’re saying.
I’m also proud to say I didn’t catch the Twilight reference until just now.
I have never caught any of the twilight references since I have been immunized with cynicism, aversion to all things sparkly and count chocula … a face not even a mother could love.
Considering that Robin let it slip that she was unknowingly crushing on Amber when they first met, this is all too appropriate.
I was thinking Doctor Who reference as the baby Melody Pond turns into the doctor’s wife River Song.
Hah, this made it to Language Log too. (I don’t normally read smbc)
Very good one.
I’ve always thought there was something crazy about the fact that you can go from unsuspecting single person to carrier of a new life form to caretaker and sole provider for a new human being in less than a year.
Regarding the kickstarter thing, I put in some money towards book 1 way back in March 2010 when you were originally going to do it with a reprint cover. Does that count towards it already?
You don’t gotta again!
