Our Story Thus Far - Guide For New Fans

New Guide For Newbies [ Jul 7, 2014 ]

Our Story Thus Far - Title.

This week we return to brand new strips of Quantum Vibe. Yay!!! We pick up where Seamus is in the middle of having a major metaphorical bowel movement, when he hears a helpful voice via his cortical implant.

Last week's series of strips, Our Story Thus Far, is now easily access-able through our new guide for readers. Perfect for the reader who just heard about Quantum Vibe, but wants the Cliff's Notes version because she wants to catch up fast and join the adventure now! A handy link is positioned to the right of the page navigation buttons on the Quantum Vibe web site.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
A stand-up display case for androids. We see three 'sleeping' androids – on the left, a butler-type; on the right, a repairman type. In the center is Veronica, who we met in Book 1. She is dressed like a stripper, in bustier, lacy bra and panties. There are traces of cobwebs about, indicating this case is little-used.
Nicole (OP): Hey Seamus, look over here!

Panel 2
From Veronica's POV, we see the Shopkeeper (a middle-aged-looking Asian), Seamus, and Nicole.
Shopkeeper: Ah, yes, these are some of our older models, not so much interest in these.
Seamus: What can you tell me about this one?
Nicole: Hey Buford, check this out!

Panel 3
Third-person view: Seamus is looking over Veronica very closely. The shopkeeper is looking hopeful. Nicole is looking off-panel right with a disappointed expression.
Shopkeeper: This V-287 model is around a century old, one owner. She was brought in three decadays ago – that's all I know.
Seamus: Interesting.
Buford (OP): I'd rather not be a part of this.

Panel 4
Two-shot the shopkeeper and Seamus.
Shopkeeper: A classic model, for sophisticated tastes …
Seamus: Is that why there's 'not much interest?'


Panel 5
Now Nicole is looking at Veronica closely. The shopkeeper stands by.
Nicole: Does she have a name?
Shopkeeper: Her memory of her previous owner has been erased, per standard procedure.
Shopkeeper: If you rent her you can assign whatever name suits you.

Panel 6
Three-shot Seamus, the shopkeeper, and Nicole. Seamus and the shopkeeper are dickering, Nicole looks thoughtfully at the android.
Seamus: I'll pay 30 keyin* for three days' rental.
Shopkeeper: I cannot accept less than 60 keyin for this, with a 200 keyin damage deposit.
Caption: * 1 keyin = one silver gram

Panel 7
Two-shot Seamus and the shopkeeper.
Seamus: I'll agree to your deposit but no more than 40 for the rental.
Shopkeeper: 50 keyin and that is my bottom line.
Seamus: 45.
Shopkeeper: Deal.

Panel 8
Four-shot of the Shopkeeper, Seamus, Nicole, and the still inert Veronica. Nicole looks at Veronica dubiously.
Shopkeeper: You drive a hard bargain, sir.
Shopkeeper: If you will wait in the lobby I will get her prepared and bring her out to you in a few minutes.
Nicole: I have a weird feeling about this.
