Yes indeed.

I think it's going to be just them. This is one of those cases where I don't have it all scripted. (But I do actually have the major plot points lined up.)

Do Zira and Crowley have a little thing going in your universe? ^_~

*checks timeline*

Integra takes control in 1987 at age 13.

Current storyline, it's Christmas 1987 and she's 14.

The Notpocalypse happens in 1990; Integra's 16. At this point Aziraphale's living above his used bookstore and Crowley in his flat.

The "present" is 1997 (Integra age 23). By this point Crowley and Aziraphale are cohabiting in a cottage on the South Downs. (This is Prachett-certified Good Omens canon, by the way.)

In Shineverse canon, Aziraphale and Crowley will have a "little thing" going by the time of the Notpocalypse II (1999, this one brought on by the Millennium Nazis - as well as the events of X and assorted other apocalyptic manga). However, the "little thing" won't occur until after Notpocalypse I (the Good Omens one).

The storyline featuring the two of them will be either soon before or soon after Notpocalypse I. (Integra has to be a bit older, but Aziraphale has to have the bookstore.)

So the short answer is that they will have a Thing In Development. Mutual attraction un-acted-upon, unacknowledged, possibly even unrecognized. But there.

Humm....I'm in class now and it's working on the iBooks...so I guess it's something with my PCs at home. Weird.

I'll figure it out...thanks Erin.

Hey-- I figured it out (like any of you care...) The newest Windows update has changed Internet Explorer, which messed up my Firefox, which once I updated that too, fixed everything. Yeah!

Pathetic how much the new Internet Explorer looks like like Firefox now...No identiy what so ever....

IE is just screwy in general. Ever since I installed SP 2, the stand alone version will NOT display web pages and IE popups with AOL give the same "page cannot be displayed" thing.

With IE 7, the popups I get using the AOL browser now actually display, but IE still doesn't show anything. And now for some reason, if I try to log in to my credit card account on AOL, it won't display the page (though it loads fine BEFORE I try to log in), so I have to switch to Firefox.

It never messed with my Firefox, though, thankfully.

Aw, Girlycard is so cute in that last panel. I could eat him up, except he'd probably eat me first.

That llama is ultra cool, but lets see some freakin' tutus already.

We haven't seen the WHOLE llama yet; maybe it's wearing one. :D

Too be truthfull I thiught of that after being up for 20 hours and hyper on coffee. The scary part was that after posting I reread v.2 of the manga, and when I saw the scene where Integral offers her blood to Seras then had the image of both in sailor fuku and Seras refering to Integral as "sempi" with the whole nervous figeting and faint blush thing going on.

Man I have got to start getting more sleep.

Whoa... what are you talking about? I gather that and image exists of Integra and Seras in sailor regalia.

You need to tell me how this image can come into my ownership.

I sort of imagined that the skeleton featured in today's comic had a cockney accent. It made me chuckle a little, then I tried talking like a cockney, and I had to despair. Anyway, is this skeleton wearing a tutu? It certainly is wearing a crown.

If this story arc had a soundtrack, I would imagine it would be a warped version of "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies".

Personally I think of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. No warping required.

This strip isn't part of the storyline (as will hopefully be clear tomorrow).

Glad it was cute for you, though ^.^

I'm enjoying these "comic geekery" strips. The fact that this one fit in with the current storyline is very cool- one might even think our doujinshi-ka planned it this way...

If you really want that sort of thing going thrugh your brain, sleep deprivation and large amount of coffee and sugar mixed with shojo manga at odd hours of th e day will make it happen. I'd like to see that picture myself but I rather like these dream sequences too. Truth be told I haven't seen a strip in SHINE that I've disliked or was disapponted in yet. (que the spooky music and the omnious narrator "little did they know the trials that awaited these bold fans heh heh heh heh ......) No jinx, no jinx, no jinx

I'm just glad you didn't say that around Halloween. Hopefully the magic of the Christmahanukwanzakah season will help dispel any bad vibes you just generated . . .

Amazing how it's always when you're saying something good that puts the whamy on you. On the other hand it also shows a testament to skill and thought and talent. Besides if they all were completely awesome instead of some being "only good", I doubt I'd enjoy the site as much as I do, so I'll take the risk of the jinx and keep on being happy at your efforts!

Forget meeting Alucard... I want to see the chaos that would result from them meeting the Iscariots. :-D If Alucard drives Anderson up a wall, Crowley would, I imagine, be exponentially worse...
