Lol Talon. Ask and you shall might receive. :lol:

Well, what are you waiting for, Alex? It's very impolite to keep a curious lady waiting.

The body language speaks volumes. One can feel how uncomfortable the situation is for Alex. Talon and Beryl seem quite pushy, don't they?

Looks like arioch posted the wrong image to the site, the page on the patreon is shaded.

The page on the comic site is shaded. Do a hard browser refresh (Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl+Command) if you're not seeing it.

Thank You!

Well, isn't it obvious that a thermal liner needs to be as close to the object as possible, Alex?
It's a crowded shuttler, just get going!

We readers also want to see something!


So, can we infer from this, that nudeness is a lot less a social taboo in the Loroi society than in our Human societies?
(But then, if he wears underwear, what is there to show anyway?)

Now Arioch is going over the top ;) Well, probably he wants to show that Loroi are foreign to the concept of "privacy", since they can listen in to anything anyway.

They're foreign to the concept of modesty, at least.

Well, it's Alex's turn now. Will he go through a lengthy explanation, though Beryl's admission pretty much voids at least half of the argument ... or will he man up, choke down his embarrassment and not be a spoilsport to Talon? :)

Nah. It's likely that their definition of modesty and privacy are different compared to ours. As a warrior society, I'd hazard a guess that they would likely tend to see things more from a utilitarian perspective.

Beryl had snuck a peek (for SCIENCE!) during Alex's recovery/detention in the med bay so Talon needs an excuse. Maybe to make sure that the suit is worn perfectly. :P

Huh, I would've thought that being in the military would've beaten at least some of the need for privacy out of Alex.

Also military doesn’t mean abandoning cultural nudity norms.

Privacy is absolutely out of the question given they're still tentatively trusting. I'd be surprised if there wasn't a standing order not to let him out of sight unless he were in a controlled space, like he was back in his cell; though that doesn't mean they all need to ogle him while he changes clothes. I'm guessing Beryl will be the lone Loroi left since she has already gotten a look.

I'd also bet that while she's busy ushering Talon out, Alex gets changed as fast as he can while her back is to him.

Actually Fireblade has seen Alex in the buff as well...

hi hi

I suppose it is a little interesting, but not surprising that Stillstorm would have restricted any data collected during Alex's time in the infirmary. Gotta maintain discipline on your ship in the face of a sinister and definitely evil alien spy.

On the matter of privacy, in the military there's probably a difference between showering with your own crew and showering in front of the ambassador of another country. We've been told in forum posts that Loroi usually eat alone, and it is kind of weird for them to eat together, so it's not like they have no concept of privacy.

There's certainly an argument to be made for swallowing one's pride and going along for the ride in a situation like that, but beyond his own personal discomfort, there's the fact that he is representing all of humanity. Assuming humanity and the Loroi union are going to meet up later, it's not a bad idea to display some normal human standards. (That's probably not what's going through Alex's head right now, though.)

I had been hoping for a point that Alex indeed is wearing a uniform and that there are regulations and norms about proper identification, nice to see such a thing is in.

It's part of respectful behaviour.

Sure.
But even then I usually don't visit the patreon extras.
Won't do here either.
I love discussing about pages, and being on a different page (literally in this case) makes the discussions.... slanted and wrong.


Also, which head, Icekatze?
;)

No patreon-spoilers here anyway, as it is from the free Work-In-Progress thread. :)

That said: I am not implying that the picture is not utterly misleading, as so many of Arioch's single-panel previews tend to be.

I am neither partially not implying the negation of the opposite, either, mind you, as that would not show a lack of being entirely dishonest on my part. :lol:


Ahh, written language. It is the fun.

I know. But even the WIP thread is marked "(Spoiler Warning)"
The WIP discussion thread may be lacking one in the title, though.
