0243 - A new peripheral. - 2022.05.30



I don't do time skips very often in Forward, so, for those of you who don't read the transcript, I will point out that we've jumped forward ever so slightly in time to 6:45 pm. Forty whole minutes! Whichever dessert Orb and Bas embarked upon first, they're likely on to the other one now.

Also, yes, that first panel is a POV shot, so you get to experience one of the ultra-advanced optical technologies of the future - Lee's glasses have yellow lenses from the outside looking in, but, from the inside looking out, their vision isn't tinted at all! Science!

Doc: -king ignore me, y-what happened?
LC: Doc... do you know who I am? Do you remember where you are?
Doc: Of course I know who you are, you're Lee Caldavera. I don't have any data loss, I've just been rebooting continuously for one hour, thirty-six minutes, and twenty-nine seconds. Apparently.
LC: Well, I'm glad you're waking up now, because... I got you that thing you wanted!
Doc: What?
LC: Yeah, the hover peripheral you advertised to me! You can fly! You're free!
[Lee lets Doc go, it immediately slams into the floor]
Zoa (face back on, some visible improvements) : Toldja you installed it upside-down.
Doc: Given how often I've seen you fall onto it, I'm officially going to recommend a softer fucking carpet.
