0122 upguntha: Crzy kranian cybog taes over scho
0123 brella: i was wondering that, too. i thought the different tie colors represented what year they were in?
0124 joe_eisma: haha yeah that's a good question, phil
0125 joe_eisma: initially, yes, the school uniform colors were maroon and blue
0126 upguntha: Joe did you throw the wol "freshmen" uifrm thing out the widw?

0133 brella: hannah is too cool to conform to mga's dress code
0134 joe_eisma: as long as the kids don't look like complete bums, i think we can expect more varied colors to their sweaters and such
0135 upguntha: Does the shool have polo shirt or is that a Rodi thing
0136 joe_eisma: i've thrown in a few polos here and there
0137 upguntha: must do research

0166 brella: oh man, yeah, akiko and fortunato broke my heart
0167 yuuhy: faaaaave
0168 joe_eisma: and not just because i'm an invisibles nerd

0170 upguntha: I need to read that
0171 joe_eisma: it's been awihle
0172 macey: i guess we all have to read the invisibles now. quietly empties wallet
0173 joe_eisma: it's so good!
0174 macey: haha i have been bullying myself for not reading it yet for awhile now
0175 upguntha: Where did Akiko get a copy being in a coma and what not
0176 joe_eisma: haha she probably stole it from ian

0211 beth: did brandon find out vanessa's grades

0222 darrrrkvngnce: lol, Beth
0223 joe_eisma: haha. i texted matt today 'you gave them scantron?!'
0224 yuuhy: wait do they not still use scantron machines
0225 nick: @upguntha I saw that
0226 beth: maybe mga is more advanced
0227 brella: that's why david killed him, his test scores were too low
0228 macey: that's kind of perfect for this book though. that's so clever.
0229 guest-337849 left the room
0230 guest-337855 changed nickname to northlondon
0231 beth: he wasnt good enough anymore

0234 beth: this is. wow.
0235 brella: yuuhy remember when you thought it was a complicated science machine
0236 jake entered the room
0237 macey: the whole time the cylinder was just to grade papers
0238 philmaira: So then the book Brendan was looing at was what Hunter is looking for, the Answer Book, or whatever its called?
0239 upguntha: I dont think Matt kneew it was scantron
0240 guest-337870 changed nickname to jake
0241 jake left the room
0242 joe_eisma: i quite enjoyed everyone's theorizing about it
0243 macey: WAIT SHIT WHAT IF THE CYLINDER DOES GRADE STUDENTS...METAPHORICALLY.....
0244 brella: i find that astonishing, since i'm 99% none of the main cast does any schoolwork at all
0245 yuuhy: i do remember when i thought it was a Complicated Science Machine
0246 brella: MACEY SHIT
0247 beth: maybe its just like nice atmospheric getting test grades by the nice cylinder
0248 beth: OOOOOOOOOOOH MACEY
0249 beth: casey sat at her desk like. once.
0250 brella: i think she and hunter studied for something once
0251 northlondon: *Can I dance*?
0252 northlondon: *i AM A RAT*
0253 yuuhy: the cylinder is just a glorified state exam. nice.
0254 upguntha: serioulsly all she does is stomp around the school
0255 brella: and ian might have done homework
0256 brella: once upon a time
0257 beth: they've gone to the library a few times too
0258 guest-337906 entered the room
0259 brella: no ian you cannot dance although you definitely are a rat
0260 northlondon: *Macey can you see my facey*?
0261 upguntha: is this ac called Assembly or Arrivals?
0262 beth: yeah ian's a nerd he probably actually does schoolwork wow
0263 northlondon was banned by macey (mornglorschat)
0264 northlondon left the room
0265 joe_eisma: haha that was weird
0266 darrrrkvngnce: wait, did Julie Hayes also have the Scantron?
0267 brella: nobody say anything
0268 macey: it knew how to use bold text i actually don't know that
0269 brella: "it"
0270 macey: well i assume it's a spambot........right.................what if it is benevolent
0271 yuuhy: I believe it was in the room when she was doing the thing with the stuff.
0272 brella: nick, do you think that all of the kids will be ok with midterms even while all of this is happening
0273 yuuhy: It knew that "facey" rhymed with "macey."
0274 brella: maybe..... maybe it really WAS ian
0275 macey: THATS TRUE. it may be benevolent.
0276 yuuhy: That's some Advanced Technology there.
0277 nick: Midterms- very scary
0278 macey: upguntha
0279 upguntha: Issue 50 midterms
0280 macey: i'm going to assume midterms at mga are a bit more extensive than the average midterm
0281 macey: you also have to get through the semi-annual death maze
0282 philmaira: I think you're right, darrrk, a bearded guy is tinkering with it in #6
0283 upguntha: rivals or arrials.... me confused
0284 yuuhy: Andrew!(?)
0285 joe_eisma: good catch
0286 macey: yuuhy how did we both remember that dude's name
0287 brella: as an aside, hunter, didn't your mother ever teach you not to talk with your mouth full? ha, wait,
0288 brella: andrew is unforgettable
0289 upguntha: poor Andrew he gets scolded and never seen again
0290 macey: andrew for headmaster, i guess?
0291 nick: This arc is Rivals, next arc is Assembly
0292 yuuhy: Because someone made a connection to Hunter's little cousin(?) Andy although I think it might be a coincidence.
0293 upguntha: is Andrew, Andy
0294 224 entered the room
0295 guest-337996 changed nickname to 224
0296 upguntha: yay...frantacly updates wiki
0297 brella: upguntha, you're wrinkling my brain
0298 guestmcguest entered the room
0299 macey: i think it may have been me rereading, but i was probably reading in too much
0300 macey: i think there's another random background character named andy in one issue? it is a common name in the mg universe
0301 brella: step-brother, yuuhy, god
0302 guest-338008 changed nickname to guestmcguest
0303 guestmcguest left the room
0304 yuuhy: Fine, brella, I don't have a Ph.D in Hunter Huntington like some people gosh.
0305 beth: thanks for clarifying that brella "not a hunter stan"
0306 upguntha: his brother
0307 yuuhy: Remember that guy who was trailing the truants? Miss that guy.
0308 macey: sunglasses guy! whatever happened to him
0309 upguntha: stalking people at the airport
0310 224 left the room
0311 upguntha: seriously though how lax is security atthis school, you can steal student files and bodies
0312 macey: there are lots of random minor characters i miss. but we did see megan this week
0313 yuuhy: Speaking of truants and missing people, angry Guillaume is back!
0314 macey: you can sneak outside! you can talk about your random plans in the lunchroom! you can steal scantrons!
0315 joe_eisma: haha
0316 macey: truly mga is either slacking off or facing budget cuts
0317 macey: this was a good place for angry guillaume, a very good situation to be angered about.
0318 awserdtfcvgbh entered the room
0319 yuuhy: well if they were financed by wow-mo, wow-mo doesn't seem to be that lively as of late
0320 guest-338083 changed nickname to awserdtfcvgbh
0321 joe_eisma: that was my favorite guillaume face i've ever drawn
0322 yuuhy: if they were. i don't have a solid reason for thinking that.
0323 yuuhy: (wait or do i)
0324 brella: guillaume and jun trying to see who could be angrier was truly a showdown
0325 joe_eisma: i've got to run, folks. sorry to cut it short! thank you thank you again for reading!

0344 macey1 left the room
0345 macey1 entered the room
0346 guest-338149 changed nickname to macey1
0347 darrrrkvngnce: what i find intriguing is that sometime in the course of the day, Pamela changed the dry erase on the door of the room from "Casey and Pamela" to "Casey Boop, Zany Zoe"
0348 brella: so, nick. [folds hands
0349 yuuhy: beth how do you feel about in-universe you laying eyes on the beautiful miss blevins
0350 brella: CASEY BOOP
0351 beth: IM VERY PLEASED BY THIS YUUHY
0352 upguntha: Pamela is the only one aknowledging Zoe
0353 beth: i'll be able for the rest of my life say i have canonically gazed at the great casey blevins its wonderful
0354 upguntha: I want to meet more of the neferious overlords
0355 brella: um, excuse me, beth, nobody can look at the face of god and not die
0356 brella: how are you still alive
0357 brella: unrelated
0358 beth: im not really certain i am
0359 yuuhy: shit bethsey's going down
0360 beth: its a good way to go though
0361 yuuhy: I looooved seeing baby Megan.
0362 beth: but omg i was so excited to see megan again i missed her
0363 macey: im a big megan fan and i think we should trash free fortunato 2014 and free jade 2014 and start free megan 2014
0364 brella: i loved that it's confirmed that blonde girl is megan!
0365 upguntha: babty megan is now canon
0366 macey: because megan would probably be able to free them both tbh
0367 brella: megan is so on top of things
0368 yuuhy: I loooooove how concerned I am that everybody is going to die and it'll be Casey's fault probably
0369 brella: and i'm so, so worried about casey
0370 upguntha: did she purposly speak in English this time
0371 brella: like, if morning glories was a visual novel and you could get multiple endings... this would be a bad ending
0372 yuuhy: She spoke English in Jade's last dream too
0373 beth: megan can free them all
0374 yuuhy: The issue #3 dream I mean
0375 beth: but yeah.........im so scared for casey
0376 yuuhy: #3? #4?
0377 upguntha: nope it was translated from spanish
0378 macey: #10!
0379 brella: casey wins everybody dies that's the end of morning glories thanks for coming everybody
0380 yuuhy: RIGHT TEN
0381 upguntha: jade had no clue what she was saying
0382 beth: i think thats a very good ending
0383 macey: she didn't when they actually met in #3 yeah but megan was speaking english in #10 in the dream im...p sure....
0384 upguntha: oh yeah true thhat
0385 upguntha: I wonder if she's still down there waiting for Tuna to save her
0386 yuuhy: ok so about whether or not jade is special
0387 macey: tbh i still laugh whenever i go look at something in #23 and see her glaring at him, way to be a good brother tuna
0388 yuuhy: i had always assumed nine misinterpreted the results of their ~diagnostic test~
0389 brella: she's special to ME
0390 yuuhy: because they asked jade what she saw when her eyes were opened and her reply sounded like gibberish
0391 brella: i mean, her future self told her to lie and not say anything about what she'd seen, because presumably
0392 brella: that would indicate that she WAS special
0393 brella: so why hide it, is the question?
0394 upguntha: oh someone faked her files, cause people can just walk in and take them, why not fake them
0395 yuuhy: it would seem that non-special kids are more disposable
0396 brella: yeah, so it doesn't seem like a great idea to pass yourself off as one of them
0397 yuuhy: but maybe older jade has been down this road
0398 brella: future jade, you work in mysterious ways
0399 macey: i remember someone suggested if she was special she would have ended up with mr n and future jade didn't want that?
0400 darrrrkvngnce: maybe after Casey starts armageddon between the school and the special kids, only Jade is left to rebuild things
0401 upguntha: dagney and Jade
0402 yuuhy: also wow i can't wait for jade and akiko to meet because it sounded like older jade knew her?
0403 awserdtfcvgbh left the room
0404 macey: the dagney jade scene was SO COOL. nick was that the scene you were referring to when you said dagney with a kid was coming?
0405 nick: yep, but more dagney very soon
0406 upguntha: did that meeting between casey and Vanessa ever happen
0407 nick: she's got some cool stuff coming up
0408 macey: this is like matt's greatest dream

0412 philmaira: Nick, any connection between Isabel Traveiso and Queen Isabella and Monk Torquemada from #3, or am I focusing on names too much?
0413 nick: that's a good question
0414 yuuhy: i love casey blevins and how questionable her heroism is
0415 nick: they're not the same person though
0416 brella: casey blevins... is such a good and well-written and interesting protagonist.... i get emotional
0417 beth: shes so flawed............and so perfect..................
0418 brella: one of my coworkers started mg and said she was concerned casey was too perfect
0419 brella: and wanted to see if that heroism held under duress
0420 brella: and i was just like, ha, ha, keep reading, ha
0421 yuuhy: i got that at my book club too
0422 beth: OH boy
0423 yuuhy: "JUST WAIT"
0424 brella: ....then again she also said zoe and hisao are her favorites so far so
0425 yuuhy: good luck with that one
0426 brella: i hope you are happy with yourself, nick, for ruining my professional relationships in the workplace
0427 macey: i feel so bad for the people who start liking zoe and hisao best. i think there's a lot of them
0428 yuuhy: hello yes hello
0429 darrrrkvngnce: lol, d'oh for your coworker
0430 beth: yes thats a fun road
0431 macey: see, here is a living example, a yuuhy
0432 beth: highly recommend
0433 yuuhy: i'm so used to zoe being dead that i often forget that 38 happened
0434 brella: nobody who i've convinced to read mg talks to me anymore
0435 macey: alright everyone place your bets on who that baby is now
0436 beth: DAVID
0437 brella: david
0438 yuuhy: HEADMASTER
0439 darrrrkvngnce: IKE, just so someone loves him
0440 brella: (see above
0441 yuuhy: or ok fine david is possible as well as likely
0442 beth: like?? david has to get there somehow
0443 macey: im gonna say abraham because none of you have yet.
0444 macey: (watch as it's like, andres or something)
0445 beth: what if andres is the headmaster
0446 yuuhy: it's andrew
0447 upguntha: I went there but was like nooooo
0448 beth: andres....and andrew....pretty similar names there......
0449 beth: the conspiracy thickens
0450 brella: [studio audience gasping
0451 darrrrkvngnce: Ike goes with the "sacrifice of Isaac" thing too
0452 upguntha: crustachemaster
0453 darrrrkvngnce: is that the same knife?
0454 macey: actually if andres was the headmaster there would be a lot more focus on poetry
0455 beth: andres would name a murderous school after pretty flowers
0456 yuuhy: are you suggesting that the baby is dagney's dad
0457 brella: it doesn't look like the same knife
0458 upguntha: nope, i cjhecked
0459 yuuhy: ok swell
0460 philmaira: Is there anything specific about the Invisibles or is a cool nod because some of the similar themes?
0461 brella: macey, you're so right
0462 macey: yeah that knife's a bit more. sword-y.
0463 yuuhy: i just?? if dagney is the headmaster's mother then that gives her a reason to be there. i mean the ages don't work but like. timelines.
0464 upguntha: Morrison is the king of mindfucks, why not incude him in MG

0473 philmaira: Is Morrisson that unidentified bald guy that we don't see his face?
0474 darrrrkvngnce: any Towerball next issue?
0475 nick: Invisibles is just a nod, obviously a big influnece
0476 macey: when will jade ellsworth be okay
0477 nick: next issue, no, but next arc, definitely
0478 darrrrkvngnce: yay!
0479 nick: Jade is never okay, always in danger, always yelling/crying
0480 brella: is there any significance to the fact that jade was blown toward megan by a gust like hunter was being blown around in #28?
0481 brella: or was that just a stylistic choice
0482 upguntha: i think the next one is Vanessa if i remember correctly
0483 nick: the wind stuff is recurring, it would seem
0484 yuuhy: what if vanessa is casey's campaign manager
0485 nick: as is fire, as is water
0486 brella: oh mannnn.
0487 macey: as is distress

0508 nick: we'll be talking more about time travel stuff very soon.
0509 brella: ike was horrible and great in this issue
0510 nick: no one likes ike is our problem there
0511 brella: i'm pretty sure silver's dead now, that's why we haven't heard from her
0512 yuuhy: (please jade save yourself)
0513 macey: I DON'T LIKE IKE buttons?
0514 upguntha: i like Ike
0515 yuuhy: one for me
0516 darrrrkvngnce: awwwww, poor Ike. sitting by himself in stall 3.
0517 beth: really small print (i like ike)
0518 brella: ike would have significantly less political success than eisenhower
0519 yuuhy: "Ike is ok"
0520 upguntha: lonely stall 3
0521 philmaira: o yeah,congrats on Antman

0541 philmaira: night
0542 philmaira left the room
0543 yuuhy: this issue was soooo caseyjade
0544 brella: SO CASEYJADE
0545 brella: it was so STRONG
0546 macey: i KNOW yuuhy this was like your ideal issue
0547 upguntha: I cant believe we got scantron
0548 macey: angry guillaume! caseyjade! scantron!
0549 beth: honestly
0550 darrrrkvngnce: scantron is my new favorite character
0551 yuuhy: but also does nothing to disprove my idea that casey partially sees jade as a vehicle for scoring a victory against the school
0552 brella: btw guys ficathon is live http
0553 yuuhy: SCANTRON
0554 brella: they have been going for a year is that not crazy
0555 yuuhy: \o/ \o/ \o/
0556 brella: SCANTRON IS AN EXCELLENT ADDITION TO THE CAST
0557 macey: yuuhy you have such a dark view on your otp???
0558 brella: macey your son made me sad in this issue
0559 brella: also if that weren't true it wouldn't be a yuuhy otp
0560 yuuhy: macey your son got a comfy pillow named akiko
0561 kat entered the room
0562 beth: akiko would probably be so great at cuddling
0563 yuuhy: i can like .... happy healthy relationships .... sometimes .....
0564 brella: [laugh track
0565 beth: ok yuuhy whatever you say
0566 upguntha: I need more Ike/Jade in my life
0567 yuuhy: i ship hisao and the asshole who lied to him and killed his brother
0568 beth: so happy
0569 brella: om g
0570 guest-338560 changed nickname to kat
0571 yuuhy: THE HAPPIEST
0572 macey: tuna/akiko is pretty canon but tuna is doing the literal worst thing you can do, KEEP SECRETS
0573 macey: truly no one is listening to poor hunter.
0574 upguntha: all those daddy issues
0575 beth: HONESTLY secret keeping is so stressful
0576 yuuhy: but macey ian is his brother he surely didn't mean those rude things he said
0577 macey: remember when hisao/guillaume was a happy ship
0578 yuuhy: ONE ISSUE
0579 beth: WAIT HANNAH/ESI IS HAPPY AND HEALTHY
0580 darrrrkvngnce: that ship has sailed
0581 beth: hopefully
0582 brella: why do they think ian's opinion is more important than hunter's
0583 brella: i mean i know hunter's opinion isn't important either
0584 macey1 left the room
0585 brella: but comparatively
0586 yuuhy: That Hannah/Esi hand-holding was so imprtant.
0587 macey1 entered the room
0588 guest-338584 changed nickname to macey1
0589 beth: i was like glowing when i saw it
0590 upguntha: he was there first
0591 macey: yo okay why do the av club members like ian so much what did he do to them
0592 brella: seriously why do they all think ian's the shit, this is the biggest mystery of the entire series
0593 upguntha: he gave them posters
0594 macey: they're otherwise such sweet, kind kids, but they also love ian???
0595 yuuhy: Remember Maggie? She was rad.
0596 brella: shut up yuuhy
0597 macey: FUCKING MAGGIE
0598 brella: just shut up
0599 yuuhy: wow brella why are you so mean to me
0600 brella: i can't.... do it
0601 upguntha: whelp
0602 beth: maybe they loved akiko and bc akiko loved ian they just assume hes chill by association
0603 brella: why am I so mean to YOU???
0604 brella: beth that seems logical
0605 beth: who wouldnt worship akiko
0606 macey: akiko talking about ian getting weird when shes not around was very
0607 brella: yeah
0608 beth: that made me so
0609 macey: what if ian is really a symbiotic akiko parasite that feeds his own happiness off her presence
0610 beth: why is akikos heart so beautiful
0611 yuuhy: why is akiko the best out of everybody
0612 brella: why is fortunato an ian apologist
0613 beth: why
0614 macey: he genuinely is and it's horrible
0615 yuuhy: i hope akiko punches ian's face
0616 macey: akiko literally is the best. i believe akiko can save us all
0617 brella: i hope she breaks his face
0618 brella: i hope her hand goes right through his head, david-style
0619 beth: GOD SAME
0620 brella: akiko for unexpected mg heroine all along \o/
0621 macey: the only downside to akiko killing ian is that she would probably be traumitized and sad for the rest of her existence?
0622 beth: but i also want her to stay pure
0623 beth: and not kill her best friend
0624 brella: yes...... that's true
0625 yuuhy: turn him into a baby
0626 darrrrkvngnce: maybe she can have Pamela do it
0627 beth: i feel like ians going to end up causing bad shit to happen to himself anyways though
0628 yuuhy: i know there was some movie or show that beat the bad guy by turning them into a baby
0629 beth: so it wont be an issue really
0630 macey: i hope ian erases HIMSELF from existence so nobody has to worry about him anymore
0631 beth: and akiko already made her choice
0632 brella: what if the thing that stops casey from dooming everyone is ian trying to doom fortunato
0633 brella: like, he just happens to try it at a critical moment, and she's like, wait
0634 macey: im game for that as long as ian is still doomed
0635 beth: god there is so much doom all of a sudden
0636 brella: but omg that would be such an ian thing to do. erase himself by accident
0637 brella: damn it, jerry
0638 brella: ian gergich
0639 beth: lol ian
0640 brella: his last words are "fuck, wait"
0641 yuuhy: IT'S A FUCKING SCANTRON
0642 macey: YUUHY IM SO SORRY
0643 brella: HAHA YUUHY YOU'LL NEVER RECOVER
0644 yuuhy: brella, this ficathon intro
0645 brella: is there a typo
0646 brella: i'm kind of deliriously hungry??
0647 yuuhy: it's-
0648 brella: i think that the ficathon intros are kind of starting to show my... slow descent into insanity
0649 yuuhy: it's BEAUTIFUL
0650 brella: oh, good
0651 guest-337906 left the room
0652 macey: what was your favorite moment in this issue, chat members
0653 macey1 left the room
0654 macey1 entered the room
0655 guest-338683 changed nickname to macey1
0656 yuuhy: they kept on saing "this machine is so old" but literally everybody still uses scantrons
0657 brella: akiko and fortunato's scene
0658 darrrrkvngnce: Akiko and Tuna
0659 yuuhy: ....right? i am old myself so i
0660 brella: i know, right, not the AV club, shocker
0661 beth: no we defs still use scantrons
0662 yuuhy: AKIKO AND FORTUNATO
0663 beth: akiko and tuna were so beautiful
0664 yuuhy: hhhhhannah and esi
0665 yuuhy: baby megan
0666 yuuhy: angry guillaume!
0667 brella: casey's marines shirt
0668 darrrrkvngnce: runner-up
0669 beth: casey's pajamas were aces
0670 brella: hodge.
0671 beth: casey and ike talking was also a highlight
0672 macey: YEAH it's interesting to know the machine wasn't just old to julie and andrew, it's old to oliver
0673 macey: i liked the georgina and lara scene
0674 beth: and isabel
0675 brella: god yes it's been a while since we've seen casey yell at ike. beautiful
0676 yuuhy: maybe nick just thinks scantrons are super outdated
0677 brella: georgina and lara's scene gave me chills
0678 macey: theres been a definite lack of georgina lately and i was happy to have that return
0679 beth: yes that was so good
0680 macey: "i didn't see a dramatic entrance in my schedule" this is really meta
0681 brella: also, guillaume literally breaking a brick wall by slamming jun into it
0682 yuuhy: what do you think ike will do next issue
0683 macey: if i'll give jun anything it's that i love seeing the teachers not knowing SHIT for once
0684 macey: i think he will brood and miss jade and think about his dad.
0685 brella: also
0686 yuuhy: entire issue
0687 brella: i think ike will be terrible and help no one and accomplish nothing
0688 beth: i hope he thinks about his dad so much we end up seeing his dad
0689 beth: and then its really a morocco issue
0690 yuuhy: YES
0691 darrrrkvngnce: Hunter's cereal is called "Knuckle Heads"
0692 yuuhy: i mean i think he will go after jade because plot
0693 brella: i'm so down for ike issues just being segu�s into zoe
0694 yuuhy: but i really don't want him to save jade
0695 brella: I SAW THAT, DV. so appropriate
0696 kat left the room
0697 yuuhy: isn't knuckle heads a comic reference?
0698 brella: i really can't picture him doing anything about jade tbh unless it directly benefited him
0699 yuuhy: i think the guard was also eating knuckle heads in that one flashback
0700 upguntha: I dont think we're getting Moroco till season 3
0701 beth: yeah and i dont feel like its totally necessary?
0702 brella: plus, like, guillaume and jun can only stand down there yelling at each other for so long
0703 beth: like guillaume will be guillaume and jun will be jun
0704 yuuhy: good point perhaps ike really will go nowhere near that
0705 upguntha: Ike will cry like Zoe in the bathroom
0706 yuuhy: boys talking trash about ike outside the stall
0707 macey: yeah knuckleheads is a comic charles wilson draws
0708 beth: his scarves arent even that cool
0709 macey: GOD YOU LOOK TERRIBLE IN BLUE, IKE. THOSE BANDAGES DON'T MAKE YOU LOOK HOT, IKE.
0710 upguntha: I guess that when you lose your private room you get a stall
0711 darrrrkvngnce: Ike will go to rescue Jade and discover he really loves Guillaume
0712 beth: YES
0713 macey1 left the room
0714 yuuhy: boys in the bathroom just dissing ike's fashion sense i see
0715 beth: yes he will
0716 brella: the ike/guillaume returns
0717 beth: he really does love guillaume
0718 macey: what actually is the timeline with the guillaume/jun/jade stuff
0719 beth: it never goes away brella
0720 macey: like in this issue it seems like half a day passes but in 41 that stuff was at night
0721 macey: are jun and guillaume just arguing there all morning.
0722 brella: seriously i'm starting to wonder
0723 beth: guillaume just stands there in shock for five hours
0724 yuuhy: it might have all happened the previous night?
0725 beth: which like. would be understandable.
0726 yuuhy left the room
0727 macey: yeah i assume it was the previous night and we're gonna find out what exactly happened later??
0728 darrrrkvngnce: so, i guess the Red Team is the "Rams"
0729 brella: maybe the future.... is in the past
0730 darrrrkvngnce: does that tie into the sacrifice theme?
0731 beth: oy. time travel.
0732 darrrrkvngnce: (Abraham ends up sacrificing a ram in a thicket instead of Isaac in Genesis)
0733 brella: i would let roy live over ike any day
0734 guest-338767 entered the room
0735 darrrrkvngnce: was Roy a ram or a goat?
0736 guest-338767 left the room
0737 brella: good point
0738 macey: i think roy's actually a ram but we call him a goat out of habit.
0739 guest-338788 entered the room
0740 guest-338788 left the room
0741 brella: poor roy
0742 macey: so unloved
0743 beth: its tough being a mascot
0744 macey: i was expecting so much from this issue when they said it had everyone??? we all overreacted
0745 darrrrkvngnce: roy and ike
0746 macey: and it was a great issue but omg it was much lighter than anticipated.
0747 beth: yeah like it was a solid issue just not like as /much/ as i expected
0748 darrrrkvngnce: it had a lot of ground to cover
0749 beth: and also i had already taken it for granted casey would run so that wasnt like shocking?
0750 macey: yeah def it was mainly setting up next arc i think
0751 macey: when they said everyone we were all thinking like IRINA. ZOE. JULIE HAYES
0752 beth: </3
0753 darrrrkvngnce: i'm wondering whether i should re-read "Fear and Trembling" in preparation for the Ike issue. YAY IKE ISSUE!!!!!!
0754 beth: megan was exciting though but yeah
0755 macey: MEGAN THOUGH! and dagney.
0756 brella: no same i thought like BIG THINGS would happen but nothing happened that we weren't, like
0757 brella: already expecting. like casey running for student council president
0758 beth: it definitely feels like BIG THINGS are coming though which is exciting
0759 brella: it was a great issue but not as mindblowing as i was bracing myself for haha
0760 brella: although it's definitely setting up some Big Shit
0761 macey: everything is about to convene and it's going to be terrible
0762 macey: and amazing
0763 beth: im just so anxious about whatever is going to happen w ian
0764 beth: and the timing of that with all the other shenanigans
0765 beth: there is going to be so much
0766 macey: yeah ian's thing is pretty high scale above all
0767 macey: we know casey's going to run and we know jade won't die
0768 macey: but with ian its very. ?????
0769 beth: like what is this kid going to do
0770 darrrrkvngnce: i can't recall
0771 beth: susan!
0772 jayrs left the room
0773 brella: susan mom pants dagney
0774 darrrrkvngnce: thanks!
0775 brella: ok i gotta dash my friend's radio show is starting soon
0776 macey: http
0777 brella: but come to the ficathon!!!!
0778 macey: have a good night!
0779 brella: (i noticed that too macey omg hunter for headmaster confirmed)
0780 brella: anyway this was fun as always, love you guys
0781 brella: except yuuhy
0782 darrrrkvngnce: night gwen. i'll try to post some fic this month
0783 guest left the room
0784 brella: yay! please do, yours is always such a blast
0785 macey: no one loves yuuhy (i love yuuhy)
0786 darrrrkvngnce: you all are so good it's pretty intimidating!
0787 brella left the room
0788 macey: wow the chat is DEAD tonight where is everyone
0789 darrrrkvngnce: sorry. i was skimming Fear and Trembling. i should give it a full re-read.
0790 beth: its the scantron bringing everyone down
0791 darrrrkvngnce: lol. YAY SCANTRON
0792 macey: its reminding everyone of their midterm experiences
0793 beth: True horrors
0794 darrrrkvngnce: so
0795 darrrrkvngnce: moments
0796 macey: hisao i think was just sadly yelling. and jade i think was just sadly praying. no for each.
0797 darrrrkvngnce: i mean, is it just a random wish, or is it an expression of faith?
0798 beth: it could be a wish thats linked to their faith?
0799 beth: like they have faith, and thats why their wish in that moment occurs
0800 macey: yeah i think beth's on it.
0801 beth: im so curious to know whats in jade's file
0802 macey: youd think jade's file would have the whole "revived her dead mom" thing
0803 darrrrkvngnce: Kierkegaard describes Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac in terms of moving beyond the experience of infinite resignation, into a space of true faith that collapses the ethical and renders the impossible real
0804 beth: but also it just seems suspicious that jun just like acquires it and is also able to read it bc he's in hisao's body
0805 beth: like i feel like secret mystery magic invisible ink would be smarter than that
0806 darrrrkvngnce: yeah, maybe the file has it, but Jun just can't read it
0807 beth: but yeah i assumed she was chosen for the revival thing not bc like she isnt ~special
0808 beth: but also whoa. connecting faith w reality is very interesting
0809 macey: i remember silver suggested jun wanted her for the revival thing yeah
0810 macey: AND YEAH DV that sounds. pretty mg
0811 beth: that seems very thematically relevant
0812 macey1 entered the room
0813 guest-339133 changed nickname to macey1
0814 guest-339172 entered the room
0815 guest-339172 left the room
0816 darrrrkvngnce: "a paradox enters in and a hunble courage is required to grasp the whole of the temporal by virtue of the absurd, and this is the courage of faith. By faith, Abraham did not renounce his claim upon Isaac, but by faith he got Isaac."
0817 darrrrkvngnce: (this is Kierkegaard describing the difference between mere infinite resignation/renunciation and the movement into faith)
0818 beth: so faith wouldnt be just acceptance of what's happening but more active
0819 beth: like sya
0820 beth: *say
0821 beth: putting your hand in someone else's and learning to take the good w the bad
0822 macey: the definition of faith as active rather than passive and gaining power from that activity certainly sounds like mg
0823 beth: yeah definitely
0824 darrrrkvngnce: yeah, Zoe's construction seems more like mere resignation. which is the first step toward faith, but not itself enough, according to K.
0825 darrrrkvngnce: (it's been a while since i read this. i'm skimming it now, but i failed to underline/annotate passages last time)
0826 macey: who would we say is taking the active role then
0827 beth: idk if i would see zoe/akiko's definitions as only resignation though bc /putting/ your hand seems active
0828 darrrrkvngnce: God. grace.
0829 beth: particularly when that isnt like. a typical view of it i would think
0830 darrrrkvngnce: infinite resignation is an affirmative act; but it alone is not faith.
0831 darrrrkvngnce: if i recall K correctly
0832 beth: hmmm interesting
0833 darrrrkvngnce: but it's a bit off topic at the moment. i'll re-read it between now and the next chat and hopefully have more salient comments
0834 beth: faith and how it works in mg is like my fave theme so its never off topic really

0840 macey: yeah that's really interesting stuff- you should put it in the study hall commen
0841 macey: ts
0842 darrrrkvngnce: i think the compelling aspect of the theme K wrestles with is how an act that ordinarily would be viewed as insane attempted murder instead raises Abraham to the father of faith
0843 darrrrkvngnce: unquestionably, his actions are unethical; but faith provides what K calls a "teleological suspension of the ethical"
0844 darrrrkvngnce: which seems to tie in with the way each of the factions in MG are convinced that their seemingly insane, violent actions have justification in a higher telos.
0845 macey: zoe especially is the embodiment of that to me though. i know you said you don't think she's reached that level but she DOES murder people
0846 darrrrkvngnce: yeah. maybe Zoe is indeed the knight of faith.
0847 darrrrkvngnce: the resignation part, iirc, is the first step to being the knight of faith. so if that's her perspective as a young girl, it's definitely conceivable that she's the full-bore KoF by the time she's at MGA.
0848 cam left the room
0849 beth: and like she's punished by the academy for that but that only makes the actions seem more just
0850 darrrrkvngnce: in contrast, Hunter is Descartes. lol. this is Nick's trick to make us read all this philosophy!
0851 beth: sarah could have some part then in her ~journey of faith
0852 darrrrkvngnce: Ike is Nietzsche
0853 macey: perhaps the whole thing with sarah is what allowed her to transition into just murdering all over at mga yeah
0854 darrrrkvngnce: Sarah! that was her name
0855 beth: sarah </3
0856 darrrrkvngnce: that's Abraham's wife; Isaac's mom
0857 beth: oooh
0858 macey: i always figured that was such an odd coincidence because you'd feel like that name would be saved for someone related to the abe and ike story yeah

0890 beth: a failure to sacrifice him kinda like how dagney fails in killing the baby
0891 macey: i do wonder how much of killing zoe was planned in advance
0892 beth: which like seems like there would be consequences for
0893 macey: it must have been somewhat because guillaume explained it to hisao??
0894 beth: i wonder that too so much
0895 beth: like at first it seemed just oh well we needed hunter and she was in the way
0896 darrrrkvngnce: i know Zoe was a child of Abraham, but was she ever at the camp with the other Truants as far as we know?
0897 beth: not that we know of
0898 beth: presumably she is sent to a family where she goes by the name of zoe
0899 beth: whether that family is connected to abraham or she has contact w anyone is unknown
0900 darrrrkvngnce: do we know whether any of them knew that she was aligned with Abraham
0901 beth: i dont think so
0902 beth: zoe's like actual life beyond like her school experiences are a basic giant question mark
0903 macey: yeah, when abraham picks up zoe hes like "tell the family we found their kid and her name is zoe"
0904 macey1 left the room
0905 macey: so i dont THINK she was ever at camp

0917 beth: but we know the families the truants were sent to were sort of in the loop about the camp and the academy from guillaume last issue
0918 beth: so something could be up with her adopted family
0919 darrrrkvngnce: zoe is the best. (well zoe and pamela. and dagney. women with knives, basically.) ;)
0920 beth: whose name is unknown
0921 beth: but really her smile was so beautiful in 38
0922 beth: zoe is so beautiful
0923 macey: YEAH i think there's a good reason we never got to see the faces of zoe's adopted folks.

0938 macey: OOOH THATD MAKE SENSE>
0939 beth: IVE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS SO MCUH
0940 macey: the only thing with that is that would mean clarkson was always her mom, but we saw clarkson was going around the world
0941 darrrrkvngnce: but wouldn't Zoe be from Steubenville or something then? unless Clarkson and Reed moved
0942 beth: mostly to try to make it somehow work timewise?
0943 macey: and she presumably didn't meet tom until she started teaching....
0944 beth: and like it doesnt really work i dont think
0945 macey: well. there is time travel.
0946 beth: i think itd be more likely clarkson popped in like she does on everyone else?
0947 beth: but also. time travel.
0948 darrrrkvngnce: lol. i was just thinking of that History Channel "Aliens" picture.
0949 darrrrkvngnce: we need to replace it to say "time travel"

0957 beth: clarkson as zoe's adopted mom just makes caseyzoe reallllllllllllllll awkward
0958 darrrrkvngnce: lol
0959 macey: dv thats really how this fandom theorizes
0960 beth: if it ruins the otp it cant be true
0961 darrrrkvngnce: i bet Hunter grows up to be that History Channel dude
0962 beth: but also david being zoe's brother would make things make sense
0963 beth: sorta
0964 beth: we dont really know what happens to him after clarkson becomes casey again though aside from ending up at mga though do we?
0965 darrrrkvngnce: i thought Clarkson doesn't become Casey again. they split when Casey touches the Cylinder
0966 macey: no, all we know is once he was a baby and now he is a teen ghost
0967 macey: one could speculate the blond boy at the camp is him, but tbh it might be caleb
0968 beth: i was never really sure what happened to clarkson when casey returned tbh
0969 beth: and somewhere in the middle zoe learned his name and can recognize him
0970 darrrrkvngnce: though Zoe also recognized Abraham even before they first met, right?
0971 macey: i think what happened to clarkson is meant to be a mystery
0972 macey: it's ambiguous whether her and casey split or if clarkson will someday vanish when casey goes back
0973 macey: dv, she did!
0974 beth: true she did and also spoke english
0975 beth: and understood english
0976 darrrrkvngnce: oh yeah, i was confused with the timeline.
0977 darrrrkvngnce: i guess it's not clear what time it is for Clarkson when Casey touches the Cylinder
0978 macey: right, i remember when 28 came out it seemed like the direct consequence was the car accident
0979 darrrrkvngnce: but then David is born after the car accident
0980 macey: but in 39 we saw clarkson still remembers stuff after david was born (and nick confirmed it i think)
0981 macey: so that throws that out
0982 beth: yeah i had always thought it was the car accident too bc of the light
0983 beth: i keep forgetting that isnt right
0984 darrrrkvngnce: i think that's why i thought that they split at that point
0985 macey: unless- could casey have been taken from there but clarkson still got to keep her memories, live her own life, etc?
0986 darrrrkvngnce: i really need to re-read these issues.
0987 beth: itd be so weird for there to just be clarkson out there still just like living life
0988 darrrrkvngnce: in other news, there are people i want to get the Compendium for. but then i know they'll just disappoint me and not read it
0989 macey: yeah i feel like so much happened in 27-29 some small details get neglected
0990 macey: get the compendium for yourself and lend it out!!
0991 darrrrkvngnce: i gave the first two volumes to my best friend over a year ago, and he's still only read volume one
0992 darrrrkvngnce: yeah, the lending idea is a good one
0993 macey: THATS HARSH
0994 darrrrkvngnce: admittedly, he has a new kid. but i mean, it's ONE volume of a comic book
0995 macey: (15 minutes ahh)
0996 darrrrkvngnce: he mostly just listens to books on tape though, during his daily commute. i'm not sure how much he actually reads print material. alas, as Akiko points out, it's hard to audio-record a comic
0997 beth: the one downside to visual based mediums
0998 macey: i would love to hear akiko recount comics
0999 darrrrkvngnce: he's a hs physics teacher, though. so i want him to read it so he can explain how Bell's Theorem solves everything.
1000 beth: in addition to mg babies there can just be akiko's retelling of every issue
1001 macey: yes i would love to hear akiko's opinions on everything omg
1002 darrrrkvngnce: oh, did Nick tell us we need to pay special attention to wind?
1003 macey: yes! well he said it seemed to be recurring
1004 beth: yes he did quite mysteriously
1005 darrrrkvngnce: i didn't remember a whole lot of wind besides Hunter's dream, but i'll look out for it when i do a full re-read over T'giving
1006 macey: (eight minutes!)
1007 macey: it's in this issue with jade, it may be a dream thing
1008 darrrrkvngnce: i guess the Cylinder makes wind more or less
1009 darrrrkvngnce: that's a good thought, macey. like there's a separate dream reality, which is windy
1010 macey: haha i like that idea! that's why it's windy in dreams, it's just a windy area, yknow
1011 darrrrkvngnce: still laughing that the Cylinder is Scantron powered!
1012 beth: the frickin scantron
1013 beth: like. what
1014 darrrrkvngnce: all along, the Academy has been testing us in our own HS classes!!!!
1015 darrrrkvngnce: the plot breaks the fourth wall!
1016 macey: as someone who has taken many a test with a scantron i think it's clever tbh.
1017 macey: so fitting for a school story
1018 darrrrkvngnce: Hunter fails because he can only find a number 813 pencil
1019 beth: yeah definitely
1020 macey: hunter always fails regardless OHHHH BURN
1021 beth: like its just so mundane at any other school the inclusion is great
1022 beth: oh hunter
1023 darrrrkvngnce: poor Hunter
1024 macey: its such a strange thing to use for a school story but it's recognizable and well done
1025 macey: (i secretly like hunter but he's fun to diss)
1026 macey: two minutes
1027 darrrrkvngnce: thanks for hosting this as always, macey!
1028 darrrrkvngnce: congrats on your cameo, beth!
1029 beth: yeah thank you so much macey!! you're as always the most wonderful
1030 beth: and thank you!!!
1031 macey: yes beth ill cherish your cameo forever you are so cute in comic form
1032 darrrrkvngnce: oh, and let me know when/if you read The Winter's Tale
1033 macey: AS USUAL
1034 beth: SHHH YOURE TOO MUCH MACEY
1035 macey: awww no you're the cutest
