Linux-tan comic, p. 73 by BellaCielo Linux-tan comic, p. 73 by BellaCielo

"Of all the world's most natural and formidable enemies, the New Englander and the Tri-Stater stand apart; to put a Massachusettsan and a New Jerseyite in the same Greco-Roman style building will, almost invariably, result in one being the victim of attempted stabbing and another getting pwned by a forcefield..."
-BellaCielo, A Treatise on American Cultural Rivalries and Their Effect on OS-tans

EASTER EGG HUNT! This chapter features every character highlighted in a past chapter. We've already seen Unix, Multics, and ITS, and this page contains one too. Can you find her?

BWAHAHAHAHA! Unix-chan! Unix-chan! :D

But seriously, it's amazing that Multics-sama can fight in such impractically fancy dresses, and even more amazing that Unix-sama got out of that alive, but tragic that Multics' attempts to build Unix's character backfired and turned out like it did. :(

Looks like Multics is playing the Cruel Mercy trope too!

I knew that the freckled girl in the background looked veeeery familiar! I'd guess that's Leopard-tan, but she doesn't have the cat ears... unless she's hiding them to blend in!

In the first panel, I also see the magical staff that would later become Unix-sama's!

UNICS-chan! UNICS-chan! :la:

Never, ever underestimate the agility of a noblewoman in a Rococo-style gown. :lol: Actually, most of Multics' fighting skills would have involved stopping an enemy before they even got near her-- in others words, forcefields and the like-- so she wouldn't have been as reliant upon agility so much as sheer power. (Though Multics-sama probably let Unix-sama get near her just to get into hand-to-hand fights with her, because Unix-sama would've been totally defenseless against an energy attack. Gotta keep fights fair, amiright?).

...Something like that. I don't think it was particularly cruel that she let Unix-sama live, though...

Yes, that is Leopard-tan! Her ears are under the scarf she's wearing (I don't imagine there were many/any catgirls around at the time... lol)

Correct! :D

By the way... I didn't expect UNIX-sama to just go and attack Multics right on the spot (again, how did she got allowed to get any close to Multics with this attitude?)... From what I read on os-tan collections forums, I guessed that UNIX will go and try to become Multics' servant/apprentice to get to know her weaknesses better,and UNIX will attack only when all of her mind games will be unmasked...

Probably because Multics-sama wasn't paying close enough attention. But there's also a theory that proposes that Multics-sama allowed Unix-sama to get into fights with her, because she wanted to make Unix-sama a stronger fighter and stronger person (remember, Multics-sama and Unix-sama are related).

That is a very interesting thought, actually. :) But I guess Multics-sama and Unix-sama were too great of rivals to want to work together in any real way... :(

*sigh* If there is anything history and literature should have taught you Multics it's never, ever ignore a potential enemy. More squashing, less dialoguing!

No idea. For some reason, I just have no clue who it is. You win this round!

But that's not just any enemy... that's Daughter Dearest! :ohnoes:

(I take it you're siding with Multics-sama in this little kerfuffle?)

Okay, in panel 3 there's a certain freckled girl looking on in horror, as if she's thinking "oh god my great-great-great-grandmother is getting her neck rung and I might not exist if this doesn't turn out right." You might not recognize her because her ears are hidden...

Bah, children make the best usurpers. (Why never, *dusts off uniform sleeve* it would be improper to play favorites. My wish is simply to see the best fight possible :smoking: )

Yes, okay, um, I'll do some more thinking after sleep because right now I've got nothing.
BellaCielo Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Another reason not to have them... i've always said that the goal of the child is to kill/overtake the parent! That's why they always spreading germs and bringing home viruses from school. :paranoid: (I won't say who I'm routing for... but it's the one who's not going to make out very well in this situation).

Think... which OS-tan is cocky mad scientist who built her own time machine? Hint: it's the character for the OS I'm using right now. :lol:

Indeed. Kids be trippin' (Ah, I see)

Oh. Now I feel like an idiot ><.
