It's not a dramatic new inking style. Just walking under streetlights.

See y'all soon.

Hahahaha oh George, you lovable rascal

This is the problem with rpg's that have you fight thieves as a main enemy. The player has absolutely no moral high ground.

@Unessecary: You should check out 'You are not a hero' once it gets released. You play as a NPC who has her stuff stole by players :p
October 22nd, 2014, 7:30 pm
Really George?
October 22nd, 2014, 7:40 pm
She could rule Team Rocket... Even Giovanni has nothing on how... what's the word.... Insane George is.

Just a thought.... @troblsomtwins829:

Giovanni may not be alive in this story! who's ruling the Team???

@EB-the-GAMER: Isn't it obvious? George

With every page, my concern for George's sanity grows...
October 22nd, 2014, 8:23 pm
@P-Dizzy: well if you at first assume she never had any to begin with and was only faking it before, life is generally less stressful

Is she getting worse?

Atticus, why are you asking rhetorical questions?

Somehow I think she'll do just fine as a member of team rocket.

lmao, I made that comment when I only read half way through the page. I see Atty also thinks the same thing. But I don't get what George meant, just that she said nah that's not for me.

Okay, did George play a pokemon video game and assume that's what the entire pokemon world is like? Cause she's certainly acting like a game protag, entering houses and taking items without asking.
October 22nd, 2014, 9:48 pm
I'm thinking George is one of those kids who was raised by electronics, instead of actual parents

I'm slowly wondering if George is the main character here in terms of the game.

Atticus is showing us what it's like to be the only sane person in a game
October 22nd, 2014, 11:45 pm
She has a point though Team Rocket is way to weak for her Madness, if she'd join a team, she'd had to found one herself
October 23rd, 2014, 12:37 am
@Chelvo: and would probably annoy atty into joining

Team Rocket is advertised for their theft of Pokemon; meanwhile, trainers steal everything else and stuff them in their backpack

but wouldn't that apply to the pokeballs Atty tried to "pick up" earlier too?
October 23rd, 2014, 3:23 am
George, you do realize that part of the Rocket code is stealing and mistreating Pokemon right? (I'm sure there are Rockets who care for their own Pokemon but there are those who mistreat them as well) Watch, someone's going to better believe she's a Rocket than Atty (save his grumpiness and habit to smoke).

George has some real big social issues like misconceptions of things or lack of "common sense", reminds me a bit of Parker from "Leverage"... hmm dysfunctional upbringing perhaps? Otherwise some incident forever warped her mind... (please be a Drowzee/Hypno's hypnosis attack gone wrong in a therapy session)

@FirecrackerBee: Well she has been away from home for years. She started traveling at the age of ten.

Hah, As soon as I saw the start of this I thought "She should be the rocket member" and sure enough...
Honestly she seems like she'd do it well, able to get through any door that's story relevant, no qualms from looting trash cans and stuff off tables, you name it.

Is Magikarp flopping after them?
kryptoknight (Guest)
October 23rd, 2014, 8:38 am
Yup @Aescula: In fact it looks like all Atty's Pokemon are following them.

George reads more and more like someone from the real world thrown into a Pokemon game without realizing that real world rules now apply to her... I smell a Giratina at work here!
EB-the-GAMER (Guest)
October 23rd, 2014, 9:54 am
Well... At least that encounter had a point to it XD

Theft, morally incomprehensible. Sticking an animal in the microwave......debatable.
October 23rd, 2014, 12:14 pm
RPG: kill bandit, steal his clothes. Kill a chicken have a whole town attack you. Steal a fork have the whole region attack you until you pay bounty for 2 septum theft.
October 23rd, 2014, 12:44 pm
Rocket Problem solved. Just let George do the stealing for you Atticus.
October 23rd, 2014, 12:58 pm
Team George when?
SoulStare (Guest)
October 23rd, 2014, 1:47 pm
<.< That weird moment when George is worse than Atty.
October 23rd, 2014, 2:16 pm
A perfect summary of every RPG ever.
October 23rd, 2014, 3:36 pm
Words.. Words fail me.

Please, Atty, if yer unhappy with the way she's getting things done, then by all means, drag her back and have her give back the ticket. (But really, what are the odds of that?)

George isn't the real hero, she is actually the rival or maybe she qualifies as the friend of the hero and that's what allows her to go where ever she wants, ever notice how the game never stops your rival from going anywhere?

Well now it's obvious that George suffers from MCS. Main Character Syndrome.

@Nearo: Well, maybe she figures that stuffing an Eevee in the microwaves is technically the same thing as changing someone from a Pokémon back to their human form, and she's just accepting her reward, since Abel's too busy to go on the S.S. Anne. Or so she might believe. Since that was the case with Bill.

Maybe she knew Bill. Maybe that's why Abel's there now. She did something unspeakable to Bill.

...I feel awful.
October 23rd, 2014, 10:43 pm
@Doutonbori Robo: I like that theory. 4 years ago she got bill arrested as a side effect of breaking into his house and borrowing the shower. Somebody got suspicious when he had kids clothes lying around was denying everything... It would explain why abel is so friggen nervous on that topic...

Okay, new theory: George is Red.

In the original game, it was assumed you were a boy. George is a girl, but she looks a lot like a boy at times and has a boy's name. She's also constantly wearing a baseball cap. What if she was "Red", and she mentally snapped trying to catch them all? Everyone assumed she was a boy, but now that she's older they can tell she's a girl. It explains why she knows what she knows, and where Red went.

Her past comments and actions suggest she knows the path the story should take. Only someone that's done it before should know that.

for some reason I thought the magikarp was a walking pair of shorts with tiny shoes attached to them

Makes you wonder what NPCs think regarding player characters in RPGs (as if countless people haven't already parodied that thought).
October 24th, 2014, 9:01 pm
I finally figured it out!!!

George is a Gender-switched Giovanni clone sent 10 years into the future to rule the world!
July 8th, 2015, 8:11 pm
Oh, so she's a sociopath.
February 2nd, 2016, 12:23 am
Is this actually George

I'm still super confused on how she was able to access all that. IT's really weird.
