Scott's List of Proud Patrons



About the Patreon Contretemps [ Dec 18, 2018 ]

Scott here.

Patreon's recent moves to de-platform some popular YouTube personalities who have upset a censorious subset of progressives has alarmed all of us who value an ethic of open discussion, even when opinions expressed are sometimes quite difficult to tolerate. Maybe especially then.

I have had several Patrons drop out of the system and ask me to set up an account with an alternative subscriber service. However, there seems to be a Twitter-based activist group of "Social Justice Warriors" which can attack and shut down alternative services lest they become a haven for the wrong crowd. Maker-Support and SubscribeStar have both fallen victim to these racketeers.

Now, I know that some of my readers are here because they like my politics, but many others don't care about the politics but enjoy the stories. And all of you are important to me. But some of you want an alternative subscription service and I am open to any such that seems able to withstand assaults from the Blue Meanies. I have word of such a system in the works and will adopt it quickly if it pans out.

I'm also following Minds.com and Steamit.com, which offer a means for people to support creators, but they deal in crypto-currencies, which at present are not as easy for most people to deal with as their national currencies. But new innovations may change this, so I haven't written them off either.

In the meanwhile, I'm sticking with Patreon, out of financial necessity. If and when I make a move to either add an alternate service or replace Patreon, I will announce it here and elsewhere. And I understand those of you who cannot bring yourselves to consider supporting me through Patreon and will happily welcome you back when I can offer you a better choice.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Nicole starts to back into the side-corridor but the two men spot her.
Nicole: Feek!

Panel 2
Nicole tries to roll her Bubb quickly backward but can't quite move fast enough, as a Zing grazes the forward face of the Bubb, tearing a small gash across it. Nicole is terrified.
SFX: ZING
Nicole: AAAAA!!! Seamus, they shot me!

Panel 3
Nicole is cornered in the short side-space, one of the men rounds the corner and pauses to consider his options. His Zringer (looks like a large ring on his right-hand finger) is glowing. We see the rip in her Bubb has become a scar as the device heals itself.
Man 1: Whooo-ee!! Look what I found!

Panel 4
Nicole raises her right hand and points her own Zringer at the man. Three Zings emit therefrom and rip through Man 1's body like they were high-powered rifle shots
SFX: ZING ZING ZING

Panel 5
Close-up on Nicole, who is looking at her Zringer. The jewel on the front looks dark.
Nicole: Shuck! I'm out of my charge pack's range, and this Zringer only holds 3 shots.
Nicole: SEAMUS! I got one but the other's in the corridor, I'm in the utility section.

Panel 6
View from the corridor, we see the other man flattened against the wall, Zringer ready, creeping towards the corner around which Nicole can do little else but cringe. Which she does.
Nicole: SEAMUS! I got one but the other's in the corridor, and I'm in the utility section.

Panel 7A
Looking from Nicole's position, we see Man 2 suddenly whirl around the corner, Zringer presented, ready to fire.
No dialog

Panel 7B
Medium close-up on Nicole, cornered in her Bubb, glaring back towards the man about to kill her. She snarls.
Nicole (small, soft): fuck you

Panel 8A
Same angle shot as 7A but now Man 2 is getting blasted by several Zings from OP right.
SFX: ZING ZING ZING ZING
Panel 8B
Close-up on Nicole, fists clenched under her face, eyes wide and blurry, trembling like a leaf in a gale.
Seamus (filtered voice): Nicole?
