Next arc will involve Seras, Pip, and Alucard having a "father - daughter" talk with her. Fun.

Alucard: Police Girl, I'd... like to talk to you about some odd cravings you've been having.
Seras: You mean the urge to bite peoples necks?
Alucard: ...Sure, let's go with that.

I think it's fair to say that "Pip is on the move" is synonymous with "Uh oh."

Not too big on the font used in the captions. "Pip" reads like "Did."

Okay, I'm on the new thread. Any comments on the last post on the previous thread I made?

In other words, Pip is going to be spending the rest of the trip in the fetal position because he got a little fresh with the flight attendants.

BTW, is there any mention that Seras is spending the trip in a coffin?

I kind of feel bad. That's bad enough coming from human parents. In most, though probably not all. situations embarrassing is preferable to terrifying.
As far as tactics are concerned, I recommend cheating.

Well, at least Seras' Master has been around the block plenty of times. Hopefully he and Pip can get her to stop being so afraid of even a kiss...

What dreams may come, both dark and deep
Of flying wings and soaring leap,
As I surrender unto sleep,
As I surrender unto sleep...


Eric Whitacre. The most beautiful song ever. My chamber choir had the privilege of singing it (this recording is not us - it's professionals ^_^;;). That title for the arc brightened my day. Thank you, Erin. :)
I got the way and means to New Orleans
I'm goin' down by the river where it's warm and green
I'm gonna have a drink, then walk around
I got a lot to think about
Oh yeah...

Ah, poor Seras. Her suffering certainly qualifies her as one of the strip's "Woobies."

If I didn't know better, I'd say that there might be a few weddings bells playing their tune on the road ahead for Pip and Seras...


Seeing a Pip Junior or little Seras later on through the current arc wouldn't surprise me.

In relation to that, I have to ask some thing here: How much is Shine going to stick with the Canon? Some Fanon cross over stuff has happened already, but are we going to stray from the Canon path and walk right up to the "What if" Scenarios?

From what I am seeing, this is kinda leaning towards a "What if Pip didn't die." And a "What if Pip actually confessed to Seras." scenario. (Which I find a good think. Call me a romantic :P)

(reads latest strip)

It would be nice... but I think Erin is going to make this as close to canon as possible. :(

Actually this raises a question, can vampires get pregnant in this? I realize that apparently in some far off distant timeline that might not even happen due to various reasons Alucard might eventually impregnate some lady who will then give birth to D, and in one definitely not having happened timeline he got Lisa pregnant with one of the other Alucards (though it would be absolutely hilarious to see some kind of crack Hellsing/Castlevania crossover), that only shows that vampires might be able to get people pregnant, not become pregnant themselves. Just how does vampire biology work in that aspect an...

Oh right, upcoming birds-and-the-bees talk. Well, I guess I'll just wait then. Although, if that talk is something that coming up then there would likely need to be some reason for it. Sure, Alucard might just do it to tease Seras and make her really uncomfortable, but I think there's more to it than that. Could that be the reason Seras is crying? She's thought about it, possibly due to taking care of Schroe, and she thinks she can't ever become a mother now?

I think you're right- we'll have to play the 'wait-and-see' game. Integra looks so nice, sleeping peacefully.

Also, everyone babbling about pregnancy keeps reminding me of how a certain Wallachian prince dealt with the issue, especially when it involved his mistress.

Hmmm....

Damn it... there are plenty of guides to vampires, but no one ever wrote one on vampiric natural conception as opposed to the 'Bite neck' conception.

(Conversation at dinner between me, a friend, and my boyfriend)

Katie: Girls just go for angsty boys (referring to Sasuke of Naruto)...
Jeremy: Girls love emos!
Katie: Nooo, we love angst!
Jeremy: Yeah, emos!
Me: Hey! There is a difference between angst and emo, okay? They are similar, but there's a difference! Say you compare Sasuke to...Seras Victoria. They have similar pasts -
Jeremy (who hasn't seen or read most of Hellsing): But Seras didn't watch her entire family get killed!
Me: Yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaahhhhh, ABOUT that...
Jeremy (beat): Dammit!

Poor Seras. Forced to relive those awful memories. Hey, here's a question: Alucard can walk into dreams, so why didn't he do it before? Are those dreams just so suppressed for Seras that even he didn't know, or did he never bother to find out?

It has been mentioned that vampires have no...living seed, since they're dead. This probably means vampires cannot give birth either, since their bodily functions don't work so they can't sustain a child. I did however see an interesting fanfic...
