It Was Medical

And with today’s strip…I may have alienated a bit of my male readership. Ha ha.

Now you all know something about Azrael you wish you didn’t. Your welcome.

But more important news:

Liliy is on VACATION~

From 9/29 to 10/3 yours truly is on Vacation in Disney World in good ol’ Florida with her good buddy ‘Jay. And I’m not bringing my computer with me gosh darn it. *_* I need a break from this thing. *totally ignoring her DroidX is basically a computer* This means – no Ustream Thursday night and no WaM on Friday. I’m not getting home on Sunday until well after 6PM so we’ll see if I do a late night Ustream or not for Sunday’s WaM. I’ll let you all know on Twitter if that happens. :)

And I may or may not be tweeting my adventures at Disney…depends if anyone cares or not. XD

But until then. You guys can reread old strips or something while you wait. ’cause you’re all awesome like that and enjoy commenting on old strips.

“When all you wanted was to be wanted,
Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now,
Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday,
But I realized some bigger dreams of mine,
And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy,
Who changed his mind and we both cried.”

“Fifteen” by Taylor Swift

Well, he is the Angel of Death. And that’s one easy way to make sure that Death is his only hobby. Also answers why he looks so girly. But what’s Mordred’s excuse?

Reply

Emasculated since birth by a crazy family that loosed dragons on any kid that dared to threaten him at school. Spoiling your kid and allowing them no opportunity to mature will make them go strange.
Considering the alternatives I’d say him becoming a passive, bitter and bitchy guy with deep wells of resentment is not the worst that could’ve happened. Others that have such happen to them can become deranged serial killers. (That last may have been something his parents were hoping for?)

That makes a lot of sense actually.

They created the near perfect foil to a hero like Wiglaf. Allowing their other children more freedom from the heroes of the world.

Though his sexual preference may be found based one what type of people he likes attacking.

Reply

his LACK of sexual preference… he clearly indicates it is set clearly to “none”… And its not his “preference” unless he castrated himself.

Reply

Er, Azrael is the one who got castrated, not Mordred. I was responding to, “But what’s Mordred’s excuse?”

Reply

oh, oops. Thanks for clarifying :P
Maybe they make a habit of castrating people? would explain all the bishies :P

Reply

And now the crazy family just kicked him out, leaving Azrael without a leash? The Garrott’s are not a nice bunch of people, granted, but at least they kept Azrael in check. I can’t wait to see what’ll happen now that he’s unsupervised.

Reply

Uh, I was describing Mordred. Azrael’s origin is slightly less well detailed.

Reply

Of course you were, I just didn’t realize it until now. Re-reading archives leaves one with little time for sleeping. :lol2: And there’s really so much going on now; between Mordred and Bliss, Azrael’s joblessness, the reintroduction of Generic, and not counting the many other characters we haven’t seen in the two weeks Azzie spent recuperating…I honestly don’t know which character I want to see in the next comic the most. I know it will be awesome though! :love:

Reply

Two days later, not two weeks. Man, I really need to stop reading and get some sleep. But sleep isn’t as much fun. x_x

As an occasional manager of human resources I should warn you that being that tired is a pretty darned close equivalent to being very, very drunk. You aren’t safe behind the wheel of a car like that and you are easily manipulated into doing things that you would regret for the rest of your life.
So please, sleep enough. There are already enough videos of people doing blackmail-worthy stupid things on Youtube.

Reply

Heh, heehee, hahahaha, heh… good job Liliy.
Unfortunately you’ve just raised the bar with this for when you reveal details of Wiglaf’s demonic possession.

Reply

Gen is overlooking a very important perspective on the matter, if Azrael isn’t interested then it means his odds are significantly improved.

Reply

Not really.

in my own experence, women are very vengfull when you destroy there dreams. and you don’t even have to be the one who did it, just being in the area is/was enough reason to take it out on you.

still loving one’s barries was bad enough, it would have been worse if he was gelded.

Reply

so thats why Azzie hasn’t tried to tap any of that 0_0
that and i started laughing so hard when I saw Gen’s freak out :D

Reply

…Erp. 0_0

Uhm, medical, you say? Must have been something really life-threatening, then. Also, I dare to suppose it happened quite early in his teenhood as well, since he doesn’t seems too fazed about not “feeling” anything. (I read it as “doesn’t miss the excitement”). Testosterone suppliments can only do so much, after all.

Well, whatever the reason was, poor Azrael. :(

Reply

I know a female to male transsexual who took testosterone supplements during young adulthood. I can tell you that he had no libido issues despite the fact he never had testicles!

Reply

I actually feel bad for him.

Know someone like that, though it was more a matter that his testes were damaged instead of losing the plumbing as well.

Heh. Who ever thought I’d feel bad for a homicidal maniac? (Okay. I’ve been feeling sorry for him since I first saw Grace in his true form…)

Reply

Well that came up in-strip faster than I thought it would. XD I just love that he’s so calm about it while Gens freaking out. I love Azzie. XD

Reply

O_o :omg: :shocked: 0_0 :( :sly:
Just because it’s explained things doesn’t mean I like the revelation.
That’s a cruel and unnecessary thing to do, Lilly. Even more so then normal.

Reply

You seem to have forgotten that this entire story has as its main plot element the Garrott family. This family is an institution of murderous assholes who’ve apparently carved out a niche for themselves as modern warlords using impressive brutality and fantastic means.

So why aren’t you expecting unnecessary cruelty? Heh.

Reply

My first reactions:

Gah?… Gah!… Ah!… Hrm… Okay that makes sense… Damn, that’s dissapointing.

And then I had to do a double check to make sure it was Gen and not Grace that was freaking out.

Awesome. Just… awesome.

Reply

I’m reading this as later removal of the testicles rather than the penis and all, since Gen apparently knows Azrael’s male (well aware, even) makes me think there’s… evidence of masculinity.

Granted, I can’t remember what differences physically men who were castrated young have from those castrated older, besides having very long limbs, so.

Reply

Interesting… Liliy will need to explain how this happened… he got Grace before he was able to have said “feelings”, and Grace provides magical protections…

That or he’s just being a manipulative bastich like usual and he’s just messing with Gen.

Although it would be funny to see the Valkryie’s reactions to what he just told Gen. :P

Reply

I would say Azzie just playing with Gen, though his reference to Grace’s comments on the subject would suggest otherwise.

Reply

Just reviewing the archives and I thought of something. If the girls are the ones to always patch him up…wouldn’t they have noticed he’s castrated? I mean it would stand to reason, whether or not he was injuried in the groin, his underthings could be severely blood soak, thus calling for removal of said clothing. Right? And if he’s unconcious at the time…

Or I’m I over thinking this?

Reply

You’re right, there was that one time early on when he woke up naked and shackled to the bed without Grace.

Reply

Of course,*if* Azzie is being truthful, he may have had implants put in during the procedure. After all, pedigree dogs get them so there have to be plenty of men who’ve had injuries and survived cancer will have them too.

Reply

Ahhh Gen’s freakout.

Really though, it’s nice to see an asexual character. Plus to all shippers, remember that you can be asexual (of course Azzie’s seems to be quite more dictated by circumstance, but still) and still have romantic feelings.

So I don’t have to stop shipping Azzie x Grace secretly in my head! Even though likely nothing will ever happen, I can’t stop shipping characters in this comic… I really can’t… I hope you don’t mind, Lily, o’ giver of amazing comics! *can’t… stop….* I will love however it pans out, including if it doesn’t, so it will just stay in my little fantasy land… (and in some of the fanart I see here! XD)

But Azzie’s calm reaction to Grace & Gen’s freakout has nudged him up above Wiglaf as my favorite character. I’m in shock!

Reply

I am not the esteemed creator (creatrice? creatrix?) but it’s a pretty safe bet that she would absolutely not be offended by shipping her characters–as long as you don’t threaten or whine at her to change her plot or characters.

Reply

*laughs* Now whining would be horrible. I honestly never know where Lily goes with these plots; so it’s always interesting. :D

Thanks for the reply ^_^

Reply

First:: WTH

Second: Why I’m I surprised at this revelation?

Third: Whats Mordred and Wiglaf’s excuse?

Reply

I answered half of that question above. For the other half… if I get adequate approval for posting a very NSFW (and not-safe-for-sanity) link to answer your question I will. (No, it won’t actually answer the question, or be respectful in any way.)

Reply

Y’know… Once it sank in, Brynhildr might be pleased to hear this. She might think along the lines of, “Azreal is not interested in me because of a missing hormone. I can fix that.”

Reply

In honor of the missing Artist, let us comment on what should have happened today and Sunday.

The Sisters spend the next two strips redecorating Generic’s apartment into a new hideout while Generic protests and Azzie points out the foolishness of protesting to three very deadly women backed up by a very deadly guy.

Reply

He’s gotta get a new source of scratch, to pay for all the research needs, chemistry supplies and other operating expenses. The opportunities are endless, ranging from Azrael in a paper hat murdering all the customers of a fast food joint he was hired at on outwards to even stranger things.

Reply

Maybe Azrael could get a reality TV show on cable, sort of like Mike Rowe in Dirty Jobs, only it would be Azrael in “Deadly Jobs” :lol2:

Reply

:D C’mon everbody! Let’s see if we can beat Bliss’ comment record for Azrael before Liliy gets back! Reclaim the title for the rapier team so to speak!
