Including at least four living artifacts of her acquaintance …
Is Monica about to change her job, and go out into the field – or even get out of the business altogether? She is in a field of research wherein most of the answers she’s been looking for can be had for the asking – or for a few hours in Phix’s library.
Wow. If she did go in for grave-robbing practical archaelogy, given the maps she could find in the Library… Wow.
Of course, Indiana Jones isn’t the explorer figure that comes to mind when one looks at Monica.
Though she isn’t exactly Angelina Jolie, either…
But – a braid, two automatics and a cropped top…
I suspect she is about to embark on a new career.
I would think that being a living clothes rack would be major suckage after doing something as substantial as fixing the fabric of time, but that’s just me.
Yeah. The world is saved. Now what ya gonna do?
Saved, for the moment. It seems that there’s always something waiting to go horribly wrong in the next story or movie and it needs saving all over again.
Ivanova: No boom today. Boom tomorrow. There’s always a boom tomorrow.
“Sometimes I feel like a maid, y’know. “I just cleaned up this mess! Couldn’t you keep it clean for like, ten minutes?””
She’s a fixer. What else is broken that needs fixing?
She’s going to Disney World with Drew Brees!! 😀
Drew Brees’ wife and child might object …
More of a collective WITH.
“Where’s she going next?” “I’m going to Disney World!”
Since Drew is going also…. nevermind… to explain a joke means that the joke failed. 🙂
Sometimes people see more than their little life and make huge changes in their life, other times it just helps them understand what it is they’re doing and why without making them invalidate it. But the question remains. Why the hell did Martha marry Ricky? Seriously WTF? XD
And what the heck happened to Tom? Last we heard Gwen was telling Jack not to interrupt her honeymoon, for heavens sake!
oh RTD. Sigh.
Go Franklin Ave!
Hey, Pablo, give us Monica with a hat and a whip: Harrison Ford needs some replacing. 😉
Just don’t nuke the fridge.
How ya gonna keep ’em down on the farm after they’ve seen the other side? I think Monica suddenly finds her life way too pedestrian now. She has tasted the thrill of the chase and she’s hooked. Who among us would not be? Especially being surrounded by so many supernatural beings. Everything in her life seems tame and downhill from here, at the moment anyway.
I never did like Indiana Jones. He was a cold blooded killer who smiled when his enemies died horribly.
Nice photo background of Minneapolis, btw – I recognize the area, though I can’t name it. Seems to me it’s near the University? My brother and his family live there, and I’ve been through there with them a couple of times.
Franklin and Nicolet. She’s crossing Nicolet Avenue.
Look for the address, “1992 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN” in Google Maps, go to street view.
That’s the spot! =D
The “Starbucks” sign gave it away.
Thanks! The name “Nicolet” rings a bell now.
Irony: it’s nowhere near the UM campus.
…Hm, I think I know where Mucho Mocha is located, now. (Tillie’s Cafe?)
For a moment there, I thought she said “The Tomb of Aragorn” — Oh no! now a Lord of the Rings crossover?
Then again…. 😉
Monica saw the Elephant? Will she go forward, or turn around? As Neelix’s people say, “When you come to a fork in the road, take the third path.” Will she start putting artifacts where they are supposed to be, as opposed to putting them in public or private collections?
And who decides where they are “supposed” to be? Do we put all artifacts back in the holes from which they came so no one ever sees them? No one’s life is enriched by seeing, maybe even handling them? Let them just rot away as if they never existed? Museums are wonderful places and do much to preserve artifacts from eventual decay (like putting them in argon). Too bad that so much is stored away and never, or rarely on display. I disagree with Monica. ALL artifacts should be on display to the public, always. Pictures are nice, but there is no substitute for seeing them up close and personally.
Well, there are any numbers of pieces that have been “collected” (some would say “looted” from places where they *would* be visible … and in context.
Like, say, the Elgin Marbles…
I was thinking along the lines of taking keys/main circuits/load bearing items/those stones in Temple of Doom from their Rightful Place. Would you want somebody to remove a vital organ while you were still using it? Even if people were going to Oooh and Aaah and buy keychains of it at the gift shop? You kind of need it, and having some adventuring surgeon coming in and getting past bodily defenses and yanking your spleen out just to put it in the Metropolitan Museum of Guts is extremely rude, no matter how you cut it.
I like this direction. What does one do after one has anonymously saved the world? lol
Get together with your super-powered friends and start a Very Confidential organisation that specialises in saving the world from supernal threats so horrific that the General Public Must Never Know, of course.
Who ya gonna call…?
I just realised that that first panel was putting me in mind of a Norman Rockwell painting – not so much the drawing itself, but the composition and pose…
And would make a great sketch offer.
But… it’s Indy! Indy’s never wrong about artifacts that do and don’t belong in museums… No, I won’t hear anymore of her lies! 😉
I think, with her background in archeaology, Monica could don a tight fitting green top, some short shorts, while welding two 9mm pistols. Her new career should be a Tomb Raider Field Archeaologist >:-)
Indiana Jones: Not an archeologist. (AKA a prime example of, “Those who cannot do, teach.”)
Don’t worry Monica, you don’t want to be a glorified graverobber. Plus Nazis trying to kill you all the time would get terribly boring pretty quick, I think.
YAHOO!! You tell ’em girly-girl!
