Kinda strange how Shelly is the only person who has a “conscious” while others just have a collection of daemons.
It might just be the same, just a different package/wrapping.
Either you talk to 5 faces or just one doesn’t mean anything if they tell the same thing!
Her “conscience”… Something not quite right about that.
I’m leaning in the direction that Shelly has gotten into her mid/late 20s and never met or heard from this “conscience” before.
Actually, especially early on in the strip, she could be kind of self-centred and inconsiderate to others. Maybe that fits.
(Especially if she says things like “Unlikes demons”…)
I didn’t say anything because it sounds correct when you say it out. It sounds like something a 10 year old would say.
Hey, it looked right to me. She is, after all, looking like a little girl. In my experience, most kids ‘tends’ to add S’s to a lot of words. 😉
I like the way she’s pulling down her shirt tail in the second panel.
Not only is it cute, yes (didn’t notice that my first two reading-throughs), but also makes sure no panty-shot is given. She IS underage, after all. 😉
Well, I suppose it beats having a grasshopper as a conscience.
Oh, TOO many good responses to that comment. Suffice to say I won’t be using “Jiminy Crickets!” as an expletive, nor will I comment about what happens when Shelly tells a lie…
This is getting confusing. She’s a not-demon demon who can die, but demons lie.
That should be on a T-Shirt: “Demon’s Lie” (with the D inside a square)
I wonder if she’s going to do the floating around thing all the time she’s talking.
Also, were she part of Pinocchio she’d be wearing a top hat. She would look KICKIN’ in a top hat. She’d be like Slash from Guns ‘n Roses.
…Oh man oh man I want Slash as MY conscience.
So any time you screw up, you get a Les Paul busted over your head.
El Kabong’s got nothing on that!
HELL YEA! I would love Haruhara as my conscience, or at least Atomsk, the pirate king. I need a little chaos in my life…
She should look like “dark Ophilia” from the Brutal Legend game, she looks wicked!
I see London, I see France, I see Shelly’s polka-dotted underpants!
(I can’t believe I just signed to post this…)
More likely a leopard print…
At least Shelly didn’t get Jiminy Lummox or Tinker-Galoot.
Fascinating. What would combine to incorporealize Shelly’s conscience, and why? Curiouser and curiouser…
Think Jin. And as to why, I would wager a guess that it was something Jin did to save Shelly’s life during her…quest…thingy, which eludes me at the moment.
Actually, given Sarcasm Girl’s apparent age, i’d guess her reactionwhen her mother died – when she was ten had something to do with it.
Shelly had an argument with her mother, yelled “I hate you!” and stormed out of the room
It was the last thing she said to her mother.
And she also feels as if it’s her fault her mother died (as i recall) because she couldn’t get help for her.
So combine a healthy dose of guilt with some self-doubt and then send the resultant mess out on a vision quest three years later when the spirit guide doesn’t show up in time and you spend *way* too much time open to anything that comes along…
don’t forget she was probably feeling depressed, panicked and angy
And then this big black panther comes out of nowhere and scares the bejeebus out of you – and your demons all merge into a form that looks like you as a little girl.
And the panther slinks off into the forest, watches Jin give her the “poor little girl, you lost?” routine, and snickers to herself. “Excellent, everything’s going according to plan.”
Oddly enough, that’s not far off.
It wasn’t the Big Black Cat, and it’s a lot more complex, and the distraction was actually to slow Jin down … but it’s not far off.
“Excellent, everything’s going according to plan.”
that’s one creepy voice to have on ones shoulder!
