Shelly needs to talk to Phix about staying in human form when wanting to boink. She’s probably had plenty of practice over the ages, most recently with Monica’s boss.
Pardoon me while I briefly revert to childhood…
BAHAHAHA!! Boink!!! HAHAHAHA!!!
*clears throat* Well, you have a good point there. Phix is probably the only one who can help Shelly out right now. I wonder if she’s taken the time to visit her at all, or if she’s just been winging it all this time.
Winging it! Ahahahahaha…..
Nah. She needs to talk to Tina about how to make excuses. That girl’s a pro at hiding her many abnormalities in plain sight.
So, we went from Monica’s unexpected “Bonk!” to Shelly’s uncompleted “Boink!”?
[drops a “bank” book into the jar with a “bink!”]
Nah, Shelly seems to be a Queen sized bed person, to me… besides, who’d get the top one if they were in bunk beds?
Uh oh. Looks as if it’s not just arachnophobia which might initiate a transformation.
better now than .. later ^^
What… doesn’t everyone transform into a huge creature when they get frisky thoughts?
Well sure, but sometimes such transformations can really get out of hand.
Yep, she seems to revert a bit be-claws of strong emotion. There’s no talon what would happen if she went all-out and just slept with him.
*dumps wallet into pun jar*
I think you need to take out a loan for that one.
Haven’t you folks ever had two paws while getting it on?
(Sighs, looks in wallet for plastic. Pulls out company credit card.)
Only when the cat interrupted, then it could have been anywhere from one to 12 paws. 😛
I see what you so handily pulled off there. Don’t worry I got your back, *plink*.
Dang, and she really knead’s to have a good night of Back Scratch Fever.
Ah yes! The beast with two backs, wings and a tail!
Next logical question – how did the sphinx genes get passed on?
Or maybe not.Not all sphinxes were ‘nice’ like potted daisy Phix.
Yet to see a male sphinx in Wapsiworld, so carefulness is still assumed.
Still crossing my fingers for Justin having wings of his own.
Like females can’t commit rape!?
Indeed they can. Studies have shown that anywhere from 22% to 33% of all child sexual abuse is done by females.
Many guys think they do . . .
Um… you mean there’s another form for me?
Yup. She’s going to have to explain her sphinx plumage to him sooner of later, feather she wants to or not.
He may even like the new aspects of their passionate times together… “Get down, get funky” takes on a new meaning.
(drops bucket of collected small change into Jar)
Shelly needs an escape claws.
(I’d probably owe more to the pun jar if only I could figure out how to get a Santa Claws gag in there.)
Since Justin has acknowledged that he’s a “psycho chick magnet”, his tendency may be to decide that he’s done it again, and that Shelly’s gone psychotically weird on him.
A little demonstration of her sphinx transformation… just the shift in her hand structure she almost inadvertently showed him… would probably be sufficient to prove to him that this is not the case, and that she’s actually quite rational.
This would, of course, be an invocation of the Sanity Claws.
Cue the music, please.
*clink*clink* (includes payment for Lee’s second pun)
Full Marx for that pun.
Considering her state of mind, I’m not sure a Sanity Claus is a good idea.
[drops in an unopened, wrapped gift.]
Well that was bound to happen…
This secret is getting harder and harder to keep. I think Shelly should have a nice “red pill blue pill” talk with Justin at some point in the near future
Smile, with fangs. Oh, dear. Not good.
Shelly, my girl, I think it’s about time Justin got filled in on the news.
He definitely needs “the talk” soon!
for a sec there i thought justin was bald in the 2nd panel 😛
justin is back 😀 and shelly is with him 😀
so much for our fears!
That’s it, just give him a fangy smile to distract him from the hand he couldn’t possibly have seen behind his back…..
I think it’s more be startle at how quickly pulled away. Shelly’s really quick on her paws, er foots, I mean feet. Especially since she move backwards.
1punk-yoga lesson: about $15
1 nice fluffy towel: about $ 20 for a quality one
Justin’s face after ” toothy smile” : priceless!!
I refuse to speculate as to Justin’s thoughts about his anatomy and Shelly’s new fangs.
Well, i refuse to actually type it out loud…
It’s either “that” time of the month… or Justin just brings out the animal in her.
He’s really going to need “the talk” soon. She won’t be able to come up with enough excuses to keep him from thinking she’s blowing him off, even if he is awesome. This, of course, had to happen at some point.
He did say early on that he tends to end up with the wrong women right…ones with too much baggage? I wonder if he’d stick around after being introduced to the closet of fun animal forms and crazy indestructible friends. I’d like to think so, but if he lumps this into the “too much to handle” category, Shelly may have to be on the prowl again.
Now is when we find all that explosive meeting with Justin stuff was not as random as it seemed. That, in fact, he is actually with the MIB agency and has been keeping a “close” eye on Shelly all this time. This is why he was assigned to her area.
I do wonder how much time has past since the TTF return? I doubt it has been enough for her hair to grow out so much so he should be really curious about that.
Well for “the talk’ Shelly has some good back-up to tell him about what is happening, and some of them are ‘somewhat average’ humans. I am wondering if this is where Phix decided to draw the both of them into the library for a little show and tell. Especially if I am correct and Shelly is her descendant. (It would be a sort of Let Grannie talk to the boy moment)
oops, screwed up the verb tense. I meant “where Phix ‘decides’ to draw” not decided.
The real fun to come is anytime she is contented with Justin and she starts to purrrrr.
Hmm.. Phix as Shellinx great, great,great grandma…
I wouldn’tbe too surprised, since the links between the characters in WS are becoming ever more complex.
“Honey… are you a furry fan?” “Uh, why?” “No reason.” 😀
That made me grin .-)
“You bring out the beast in me” is usually the man’s line.
This is the Waspiverse. Woman here have the upper HAND.
Yes. If a man starts pawing a woman, one growl from her and he’s sure to sheathe his claws. . . .
[for this, I think I’ll donate a cat claw necklace]
Premature sphinxation? Don’t worry, it happens to a lot of girls.
Okay, I actually laughed out loud at that.
Usually it’s a piece of the guy’s anatomy that comes to attention.
A woman has anatomy that does too. just look at a nicely fitted tee shirt after you make a lady smile the right way.
Shelly gots fangs!
…as well as claws, wings, and a tail.
Just when she’s learned to overcome one set of problems and whole new bumper crop pops up.
“Justin… You know, those movies, where the character’s… love interest turns into werebeast, and they go through a lot of trauma over it, and then the film ends? What do you think the characters learn from that?”
“Well, in werewolf movies, they usually get killed off. If you mean Beauty and Beast, that’s a magic curse, so it goes away and they live happily ever after.”
“… H- how do you feel about Bill Murray movies?”
Two thumbs up from the balcony.
what? you mean ghostbusters, or groundhog day?? he wasn’t in MIB…
And sometimes in movies where you don’t expect him.
Just tell Justin that your “.” started.That’ll shut ’em down long enough for you two to have your chat.
And somehow thinking about Shelly explaining it to Justin makes me think of BEWITCHED.
Considering sweat makes him randy, and his history of dating crazies, I’m not so sure such a thing will deter Justin.
Only less wholesome…and more dangerous…
Oh…and now I have the Bewitched theme song stuck in my head. I hope I don’t go too crazy before lunch. 😛
And somehow thinking about Shelly explaining it to Justin makes me think of BEWITCHED.
So, Shelly will be finding out whether he’s Darrin enough to stay with her?
(drops some elvish gold into the Jar, which is fortunately not made of iron)
Hear! Hear! I second the motion from my esteemed colleague.
Fangs for the memories, dear! now really, I need a shower and dinner first—in the library!
This could prove problematic in the future o_O
Best to introduce him to the facts now, before she cuts him to ribbons by accident…
Talk about her being a beast in bed…
Curious, why doesn’t she have control over this? Phix seems to have full on control over this and Monica’s boss.
Does Hal Jordan worry about his costume suddenly appearing. (Sure he can take off the ring but seriously?)
You have to be nervous everytime someone in this town sneezes.
I’d suspect the control improves over time. And she’s relatively new at being a shapeshifter.
If it’s like a motor skill it’ll take about a thousand hours of practice to get it down pat.
I suspect Phix could have told her just how long it would take, but perhaps Shelly is either procrastinating or it takes a LOT of practice.
I’d say that she didn’t exactly get much practice maintaining human form through these kinds of emotions while in the time forest.
I don’t think Shelly’s a girl shifting to a sphinx form. I think she’s a sphinx, trying to hold a human form. After all, she was a sphinx for roughly 80,000 years, and a human for about 25. I suspect that the sphinx IS her natural form.
I agree. Phix has shown fangs and claws while in human form when she was threatening Tina. I’m guessing that was intentional, but it may also be a side effect of strong emotion. I think Shelly’s natural state is to be a sphinx, and things like passion or fear seem to cause her to revert. I’m looking forward to how this shakes out.
Ahahaha, the expressions on the last panel are priceless. <3
Somebody is about to get nailed, tell you what.
*klink, plink, thwud*
That is such a Monica expression…
Now that I look again, that’s a rather toothsome grin, isn’t it? Does Officer TB see those teeth, or is too he distracted by her unexpected behavior?
Well, if he says “Fangs for the memories, Shelly!” and walks away, we’ll know he saw them.
(I’d contribute a gold tooth to the Jar, but I’m using all the ones I have)
From his his expression, I think he sees the teeth. What’s worse is the fact that Shelly dosen’t seem to realize she’s giving him a carnivore grin. If she realized she was sporting canines like that, I don’t think she’d be smiling at him like that.
looks like he’s gonna get his shelly phix in… 🙂 i know it’s corny but you can’t let that stuff go by w/o a comment
Methinks this is one conversation that they should have had a while back…
And this is the LAST time I try to read web comics on a blackberry…
Justin and Monica’s boss could start a Sphinx fanboy club!
Wonder if either of them has read George McDonald Fraser’s Flashman books?
Flashman compared Doing It with Lola Montez to Doing It with a roll of barbed wire…
It seems she’s traded one fear of intimacy for another.
Anyone else anticipating a ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go? cliffhanger?
Something tells me that the the sphinx part of Shelly does not like to stay dirty!
Well I’m certainly excited. I use to read this comic for years, probably have some old comments under one name or another. Then I gave reading it and all other comics up because I needed to focus on some stuff. I’m not 100 percent sure where I left off but THIS is the last comic I remember reading.
