JEFBOT.315_Epilogue: Go Timeon February 18, 2011 at 12:01 am
The epilogue begins! Since past epilogues have been known to get a little weird, I thought it only proper that I continue that tradition with the next few strips. Though brief, these final episodes of the current storyline will set in motion several events that will have big consequences for our gang later on.
My first first this year I guess 😀
But what can I say other than I dont understand Cel, but I totally get Bot. Why do you need lights???
congrats on your first firsting of 2011, Eddie! wear these Shades of Firsting the next time you’re hanging out and a strange purple light floods the room you’re in: 😎
and hang tight: cel’s motivations will become clear over the next couple of strips.
Next couple of strips!?!?!? They are clear in PANEL2!!!!!! The electric lights go out and are replaced briefly by ghostly pink ones! The aliens are back! MUSASHI!!!!!!
ha! you’ll have to hang tight for Musashi, too, TINTWYLF. i don’t want to give any false hope we’ll be seeing him soon. 🙂
Congratulations, well get drunk when I get to Prešov again to celebrate!
sounds like fun.
I’ll probably never get first post. Why? Because I’m never going to be able to be on the computer at like 2 or 3AM EST.
It was 0903 CET
someday you’ll just happen to be on JEFbot.com at 2 or 3 in the morning, Fijiman, and then you’ll claim the Shades of Firsting. 😉
No, I very sure I wont unless I get my own computer within the next few years. That or you’re posting the next comic sometime in the afternoon.
Uh oh! Where is she off to?
Poor bot just can’t catch a break, can he…
i don’t think you and Eddie could have been any closer to each other in firsting, T! we’re talking microseconds between your posts.
and yeah, while things have been going bot’s way for the past few strips, you know that couldn’t last forever. but the night’s not over yet!
I know! Ah, well, so it goes, right? 😉
Looks like the night’s about to get quite interesting….just not in the way bot hoped, lol!
true dat. 🙂
Aww their little geeky love bubble has been popped 🙁
I wonder what’s going to happen next…
Will it involve Musashi…hmm?
Well, I’m just going to have to stay tuned for the next installment…eh?
love the little hearts hehehe <3 <3 *
i love that you guys are anticipating Musashi’s return, ESQ! but i’m not gonna tease you: he won’t be back for this epilogue, which is only going to last a few more strips. so, uh: stay tuned. heheh. 😉
i hate you JB……………..u keep gripping me in suspense……BTW, JB looks like an alien on the last panel……my brain cant register the image probably.
I think it might be all of the kiss marks on his face!! It looked like he was diseased LOL But I’m assuming their lipstick kiss marks, or that Cel is a biter!!!! hahahaha
Lol. Dat is true. LolzZzzz. Now time to sleep.
sorry for the suspense, jf#300! i hope when this resolves (not for a while) it’ll all be worth it. 🙂
and ESQ’s right: jefbot’s “alien” look is ‘cuz of all those kissy marks on his face. if cel used a brighter shade of lipstick i don’t it’d look so weird.
Wow, 12:01 am! Is that a record? You must’ve had this sketched out in the ol’ noggin for quite some time, heheh. I certainly didn’t see such a twist coming, but it’s well within the star-crossed spirit of jefbot’s world! Be sure the poor guy knows that not everyone would abandon him in those fortuitous circumstances. 🙂
And hey, how amazing that I predicted a beer bottle would get knocked over! I knew it was there for a reason, just like the proverbial Chekhov’s gun.
it was even finished before 12:01, Kim, but the way my content management system works, it didn’t display ’til after midnight.
and yeah, most of this stuff is sketched out in my noggin’ (i have the “mythology” of the strip plotted out at least a year or two) but getting what’s in the noggin’ and onto the computer screen just takes so much time. they really need to come up with a better brain/computer interface. 🙂
i almost had cel step on a piece of pizza too, but i didn’t want to overdo it. heheh.
I think… aliens/poltergeist/sith lords are comiiiiinnnngg.
ooh, a combination of all three would be hella scary, CE.
Cel’s married—no, betrothed. To alien (the green kind) royalty . . . and her time is up on this planet, which she was helping to enslave via loud, flashy, beeping, electronic control-units . . . except she fell for ‘bot and now is rethinking her role as a Galactic Opressor . . .
Or her parents just walked in.
i’m not sure which of those scenarios would provide more drama, Sarah W. probably the parents. 😀
As something similar happen to me (the interrupted geek make out session not the strange lights) I say now what I said then, “NO we do not need to worry about what going on out there we busy here!!!!!!!” Think the bot agrees. Followed by *&^%$@@$%^&*((((*%#!!!@@$%%^R$$ lights!!!!
jefbot would definitely agree with you, Will B. especially the “*&^%$@@$%^&*((((*%#!!!@@$%%^R$$” part.
Kind of reminds me of that scene in Gone in Sixty Seconds… good brakes, very good brakes.
hmm. i don’t remember much about that movie except for the cars (and Angelina Jolie), CG. was there a make-out, then an escape?
Starts at 1:40
Not advised for kids, so don’t let the Cornfather watch!
Yeeeeah, last time we had a long Cel story we got aliens and…and Mu…poor fuzzy little Mu…
i seem to have misjudged the anticipation and enthusiasm for Mu’s return, Jed! glad to see it, but he’s not back. at least not yet. 🙂
Sorry for that outburst. But the storyline was just gettin good and BOOM there she goes again. GUH!
But, on the bright side, I love the lil hearts and his face all covered in kisses in the last panel. So sweet.
I agree! With all of it! The hearts are uber cute and then I had to go, “Aw, poor Jefbot!”
Puts pillow under head. Just returning the favor pretty lady. Like the head too much.
Awwww Spank I mean thank you Will B sweetums.
hope you don’t get a bruise or bump on your head there, Pixie! 😉
yeah, jefbot’s bliss didn’t last very long before cel bolted, but bot’s gotta learn that he has to stay on his toes around her – especially when things start getting cozy!
and he looks a little crazy, but i’m sure he’ll cherish all the cel-imprinted kisses on his face while they last.
Abandoned… Again! Will Jeff conquer her Heart? or will it be a cliché part where he finds someone else in her bed?
can you imagine bot’s Nerd Rage if that happens, Sk1nn4h!?
Way to leave us — AND JefBot — hanging!
heheh. sorry ’bout the hanging, Stan, but we still have a couple strips left in this epilogue, so let’s hope jefbot doesn’t just stay in that cabinet!
Just as the going gets good, the good get going. ><
Blasted Aliens. They best be at least returning your hamster!!
well the bot better get after the good before she gets gone, TCG! 😉
as for the aliens and Musashi: well, you’ll see. but don’t expect Mu’s return just yet.
Aw, poor Jefbot. But cel wouldn’t be cel if she didn’t dash off just as things were getting good. Maybe one day Jefbot will get some satisfaction. (The Stones are running thru my head now).
I love the first panel. So geek-mantic to be making out in the Star Wars cabinet. <3 😀
He’ll probably have to tie her to something in order to keep her from running off :/
hehe, that’s in the “R” rated version 😉 LOL
lol yeah, probably is lol
Both our minds are in the gutter, ESQ. I had the same thoughts about Jefbot tying her up. 😉
you three (Kypress, ESQ and shanna) are all pervs! (not that i didn’t think of this very thing, as well.) heheh.
yep! as much as it frustrates jefbot, cel’s quick disappearing acts are her modus operandi at this point.
…and now i have “Satisfaction” in my head too, shanna. thanks. 😉
glad you liked the geekmance! (while it lasted.)
Is The Cornfather up to something? Dun dun dun (evil transition music!) Excellent Jefbot as always! I LOVE the drama.
how funny would it be if it was just the Cornfather playing with a flashlight or something, Funnyshaffer!? of course, i think the readership would have my head, but it would almost be worth it. 😉
Ok, what exactly is Cels deal with aliens? Not that I mind her having some secrest about it but its getting annoyingly regular how they cut short Cel-Jefbot time. That makes my sweet self into grumpy me.
BTW Purple hearts? I like it but not as much as Jefbots face with kiss marks all over.
cel’s relationship to the aliens will be revealed, Maryz, but not just yet. i think the only other time the ETs interfered with cel/bot time was during the beach episode though, right? (well, unless you count the time cel took off after bot mentioned Mu after the “hoarding” storyline, but they hadn’t gotten cozy, yet.) 🙂
glad you liked the kisses!
Who wants to bet that Daddy’s home. 🙂 I’m pretty sure I remember her saying something about how her and her dad where opening this place and we have yet to meet him.
Yeah, where is Cel’s dad?
You’re right, we haven’t. Maybe he’s turned off the power thinking that everybody left and that Cel forgot to do it.
cel did say her father owned the arcade, Jereme (good memory!). i would think jefbot would have to ask her about that sooner or later.
SHE IS SUCH A TEASE!!!! Why do women do these things to us!!!
Because they can Slave1, because they can
i think Will B’s answer sums it up, Slave1. well, that, and because cel has some ALIENS TO KILL!!! (kidding. we don’t know what she plans to do. heheh.)
Wheres adm btw?
She’s sick. She sounded miserable via Twitter.
i’ve been worried about her too, jf#300. i emailed her last week but haven’t heard anything, so i’m glad you got some tweets out of her, shanna.
yay the hamsters coming back maybe?
not yet, Steve, but keep the hope alive! Musashi will be back!
wow…that’s all I can say. oh and fantastic strip, bot!!
thanks, MC! glad you’re wowed. 😉
Welcome back aliens! Or whatever weirdness poor jefbot must contend with next.
not sure how happy the aliens will be to be back, Angela, but we’re sure to find out soon. 🙂
Cel’s kisses look like peanuts. 😀
maybe cel embedded peanuts into jefbot’s face, Anime fan. if they fall off in the next strip, we’ll know. 😉
If I had an arcade full of old video game cabinets, I would be worried too.(never know what an electrical short might do to one of those things)
Still no sign of everyone’s favorite evil empress? I find this troubling.
me too, Fijiman: i’ve heard some of those old arcade cabinets are just electrical disasters waiting to happen. 🙁
i haven’t heard anything from AdM yet, but shanna’s communicated with her, which i’m happy to hear.
ahem… to quote from a favorite line “By the prickling of my thumbs something wicked this way comes” Or it could just be a wiring problem. And since I’m assuming it’s a wiring problem which could in turn lead to a fire problem I can understand Cel rushing off. Poor Bot!
i dig that quote, Jiro – because i love Shakespeare and the Ray Bradbury story. (and movie!) brings back good memories.
remains to be seen whether it’s a wiring problem or something more… wicked. 🙂
THE ALIENS! 😀
*gasp!* let’s hope it’s the aliens, or bot just got ditched for nothing, rinthia! 😉
Totally late due to the fact that I have been sick and playing BioShock for the past two days.
But way to cockblock random power outage.
sweeEEeet: i loves me some BioShock, dj! can’t wait to talk to you about it after you’ve finished it. 🙂
I’m in the Haphestus core now. Nearly done. ^^ its been great. I wanna do a 100% run-through after though.
And then she turns out to be a trap, or an alien, or an alien trap, and ends up “probing” him when he finally gets her naked lmao jk.
random cockblock due to power outages, ah I’ve been there. it’s like WTF WHO CARES, but that’s not how she sees it for some reason.
“it’s a traaAAaap!” well, maybe, John. if it’s not just a random power outage though, let’s hope nobody gets probed. heheh.
I figured this was no regular outage, or else why freak out like that?
but yea, let’s only hope that the two who left get probed.
Cel has purple glow in the dark shoelaces. Just thought I’d point that out.
It’s like, the Jason from subculture is now getting some and now Jefbot! I feel so left out 🙁
